Women in purdah or burqa to protect them from male glances and conversely veiled women are supposed to subdue lust in men? LOL. That's retarded thinking. One should remain unmoved in the midst of the biggest attractions. This is true self-control that comes with training the mind and the emotions to stay centered without giving in to tempatations. Self-contriol leads to mastery of being and environmental impulses.

You've never heard of MENSA?
I heard of them, so what? I have already said that in general people tend to congregate (get together)when they have common interest(s).

Does Mensa have common interest(s)? Yes

Do protesters against nuclear bomb have common interest(s)? Yes

Does the Lakers fan club have common interest(s)? Yes

Religious beliefs should be open to criticism, questioning and meddling. If the rel.igion is based on rationalism and humanism it will welcome criticism, questioning and meddling. Nothing is sacrosanct in this age of free thinking, freedom and reason. The more people open their eyes to the mumbo jumbo which are collectively called religious beliefs, the better. If religious beliefs interfere with the smooth functioning of society with all their silly dos and donts they should be outlawed or relegated to the confines of homes and shrines with no consideration, allowances or subsidies given to the religious types.

Wasn't it enough the word of an unbeliever to explain what Christianity and Trinity is?

Why would an intelligent, sorry I meant very intelligent person quotes Wikipedia, a source where anyone can modify anything?

I would not want to be straitjacketed by religious mumbo jumbo - as for instance, if I happen to do business with a religious person, I'll, as in my dealings with everyone else, expect the highest standards in terms of quality, service, punctuality and ethics from him without being restrained by his religious compulsions like failing to work on shabbath or taking time out for Islamic prayers (salat). If his shabbath and salat compulsions interfere with the business dealings, I'll legally terminate the contarct leaving him free to stick to his religious nonsense while I seek the goods and services of those who're not brainwashed by their ridiculous religious beliefs/observances.

Kosher, halal, shabbath, salat, tirtha and other such religious nonsense should be exposed for the nonsense that they are and they should be outlawed.

Retail - how interesting.
I made that quip because in non-retail business one had to gravitate towards the opportunities, OR create the opportunities - in order to sustain the business. If that reality makes one biased, then every single person engaged in nonretail business is biased. Which doesnt add a whole lot to our discussion.
You would be careful not to bite the hand that feeds you, I'm sure that you have heard that saying, are you going to be dishonest and state that the principle doesn't apply in your circumstance?

Ummm....maybe because in cases of common sense they articulate better what we already know?

Paranoia Symptoms
http://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/bhcv2/bhca...
Paranoid symptoms may range from mild to severe. They depend on the cause but, generally, a person who is paranoid may:
Be easily offended
Find it difficult to trust others
Not cope with any type of criticism
Assign harmful meanings to other people’s remarks
Be always on the defensive
Be hostile, aggressive and argumentative
Not be able to compromise
Find it difficult, if not impossible, to ‘forgive and forget’
Assume that people are talking ill of them behind their back
Be overly suspicious – for example, think that other people are lying or scheming to cheat them
Not be able to confide in anyone
Find relationships difficult
Consider the world to be a place of constant threat
Feel persecuted by the world at large
Believe in unfounded ‘CONSPIRACY THEORIES’.
Another personal attack based on your opinion, meaningless.

Sorry - there is only room for one Ayatollah on this thread, and it appears it is taken by MUQ. If there is ever a vacancy, we can put you on the top of the list.

It's ironic that one of the items on the list I posted was "Be easily offended".

And Christians to be more Christians!!(And Muslims to be true Muslims).
Followers of all religions are guilty. most of them only use their religions as a label.
Majority of them only show a hypocritic link with their religion, hardly anybody follows the real moral teachings of their religious texts.
That is the main reason , why we see so much injustice, violence and lack of peace, both inner and outer in the world.
The more we progress on materialistic front, the more we loose on morality.
I couldnt resist the temptation to take this pot shot at your notion of religiously enforced morality - if only because this type of stuff in the western media is so rare. I assume you do not approve?(I do!)
