Aye, it's the abstraction of it, though perfectly explained in bio-chemic terms. Not to the cat, although they are good listeners.
Does yours talk?

We left of with sensing being a requirement, apart from the senses that would fall under empathy.
For that we have a gene.
I quickly wrote down pg 3547 and further back, what genes and other environmental influences could be important.
Ah recal, we did not agree that food preperation as in cooking food could be of importance too.
Homo erectus 400,000 BP probably evolved a bigger brain after cooking. It tells us nothing about the inside though according to the french study there is a correlation. Haven't read it.

Why should a god that is defined as being ONE because of uniting people as One and therefore being.(Someone wrote that down much clearer, i'm making a jumbles of it. No god without people and no people without god, the unifying factor is ONE and it's a symbiotic relationship.) So what god has we have.
And that god must have evolved t thus as we did.

So how does god sense us...well by being us.
And feeling connected...empathy...gene.

Done luv;)

<quoted text>when the muslims took aver the whole northern part of africa for the first time, how did they do at letting the people there practice their own religion freely? not so much huh? they slaughtered them out =right.
religions, all of them, are the bloodiest, most vilent thing humans have ever invented. islam is quickly catching up to christianity on that. only 500 years or so behind, they are making up time quickly...
Just today a friend told me that in Nigeria they beheaded 3 south-korean doctors, and shot nine nurses, because the west is trying to kill all muslims by cullig their children with polio-vaccinations. Truly backward-thinking.

Bokha aram states that all western modernity should be banned from learning.
Wel that leaves nothing.
But i frankly never had a discussion with a muslim about evolution.
According to my visiting friend, who told me the news, they get lockdown-syndrome when even hearing the word on television.

So i noticed that kanda dogon did not answer my pertinent questions as to what stream/cult he adheres to and whether he knows anything about fiqk. That could avoid the propaganda.
Sounds like suni. With a dollop of presumed ignorance.
I only know one sort of muslim that one could talk evolution with.
That would be the ahmadhia.

kind of like trying to learn about science when the christain church ruled...

Can you cut the proselysing.
Do you have any opinions on evolution or are you going to keep on spamming and veer off-topic?

You asked out of the blue to proof whether science could damage/annul islam.
Well if they keep on killing scientist, teachers and girls that go to school, it would be the other way around, but the military everywhere is bound to be mobilised in that case.
The abstraction is another thing. It could evolve under scrutiny, be stripped of the fairytales and PR.
So the scientific method can be applied in text-critical fashion and to the history.

Nigeria would be mainly christian and they understand immunisation.
But when some muslim claims to have gone to university he must at least have a basic idea of these concepts or know where to find them.
So i'm not buying into it, and find poster of the annoyingly arrogant proselysing sort. As if we weren't well-stocked allready!

I reached the conclusion that it was a class thing.
The rich go to study abroad and you would not know the difference in discussions. The poor have to stay indoctrinated.

The ruling class is free to interpret quraan anyway they want.
They reach a decision and pass it on to the middle-class conduit c.q. imam.
The imam tell the plebs what to think and do.

You can find this in al-quraan. So indeed religion is policing.

Voltaire could have taken his critique straight from reading those verses.

Depends on the university. if it is a very strict muslim nation or region, it may not have such studies available.

Here's an excellent debate on the BBC between various faiths, denominations and scientists.
The question is: Is it time for all religions to accept evolution. There are a couple of young earth creationinsts, too.
It's long, so save it for when you have some time.
Like a lazy Sunday before the superbowl.
