Australian cattle exports to Egypt halted because of cruelty. Just how dumb are our officials anyway? All Muslim countries we export livestock to are going to do this, they are barbarians & will kill them slowly & cruelly under Halal slaughter rules. All the officials allowing live export to Islamic countries should be charged with animal cruelty.

Do you really think the cow ask itself if he had a choice what way would he/she like to be killed?
-
Killed the Christian way or the Halal way?
-
Hamburgers made the Christian way of killing or the Muslim way of killing both are cruel.
-
Become a Tibetan Buddhist they kill nothing, not even a gnat.

What make anyone think they have the rights to kill something their God created.

---more lists, but I've run out of space and energy!

You don't even value your own blood though, so how can any sane person expect you to value anybody elses. Take westerners out of the equasion, you will still kill each other with regular montony, you have been responsible for more of your own deaths in this modern era than any western influence.
The usual muslim banging on about Drones killing (and yes, unfortunatley they sometimes kill innocent civilians) when your own murder rate makes the drones look tame.

NINETY PERCENT OF THE ELEVEN MILLION MUSLIMS WHO HAVE DIED SINCE 1948 HAS BEEN BY EACH OTHER'S MUSLIM HANDS!! Maybe you should CONVINCE OTHER MUSLIMS OF YOUR PEACEFUL RELIGION NOT US WESTERNERS! "

Again, this is merely an inconvenient truth to a rabid brainwashed type muslim.

MUQ if you think that then why are you Muslim?
Islam worships a false god, Allah is the moon god of the qareesh. Only Islam worships a black stone 'fallen from heaven, pieces of allahs face'.
Only Islam worships the lord of the Kaaba, the ghost or jinn devil spirit of Hubal, the idol who Allah was worshipped thru, until Hubal was replaced by Muhammad as a human idol and
Allah's messenger.
Net : Islam is godless, Allah is an Arab tribe pagan moon god that has no ears or mouth.
Deaf and mute ever since Muhammad was poisoned off by Aisha, that was the end of any
communication. Uthman then wrote the Quran and burnt all the other versions including muhammads.. So the Quran is false also.

If you believe in a higher god, then Islam isn't fir you. Your an Indian slave born as a prisoner into it. If your not Arab, you can't even go to heaven under Islam.
So it's a bit odd for you to be waffling on about god and righteousness, when you are a prisoner
in a belief system that has no god, worships objects & false idols, has a corrupted book of falsehood copied from others, and has a heaven reserved only for tribal Arabs...
Yes, it's quite odd for an 'indian to be defending
Islam, they were given Pakistan & Bangladesh for that nonsense. You know the Indian Muslims also have the caste system as well, so they believe there are superior and inferior sub species of humans. The ones at the bottom of Indian Islam (Dalit ?) are treated like they are non human dogs by other Muslims.
So no common god or equality in Indian Muslim, if anything it's worse than the Hindu for racism and inequality.
And the Indian Muslims also worship Indian gods & objects which is a big sin in Islam, so every Arab Muslim is taught that an Indian Muslim is unclean and spreads sin & disease.
Every Arab Muslim HAS TO WASH themselves if they come on contact with an Indian Muslim.
Obviously Allah's heaven is for Arabs only.
They tell you that.
Funny how any Indian would bother with Islam, let alone spruik the nonsense / when it rejects them entirely.
On a similiar note. One of the key Pakastani political parties is going to the polls on the platform that all non Sunni Muslims (ie Shia) in Pakistan are to be declared 'non Muslim's.
Yes, you heard that right.
The sunni's believe the Shia are their real enemy and by declaring them 'non Muslim's - like the Mongol based Hazara people, are declaring war on them.
There is no Allah. The allah moon is not a god. The borrowed gods & prophets of islam never supported islam. In fact, Jesus warned there would be such impostors, and devil worshippers such as Muhammad with false writings such as the Quran.
Islam fails everywhere. Godless.

But there are something which are "inherently present" in most of humans.

Like stealing is bad, like killing innocent people is bad, like fornication and adultery is bad, telling lies is bad. These are basic things which are present in subconscious of every humans and they have been planted there by God their Creator.

08. And you still need fear of punishments to counter greed, another very human attribute. And to tackle the deviant few.
Ans.

01. I am glad to know that you are your thirteen preceding generations did not believe in any god or any creator or any revelation. But still you fill your religion as "Hindu" in all your official records. Is this True?

How you rate that action on Morality Scale of 1 to 10?

02. What is the purpose of Dharma and good conduct if there is no god? How your Dharma following is going to help you?

03. If you have any knowledge of the world, the good does not always come back to you as good.

You see the people who are wealthiest and hold the post of Ministers, MP s , MLA s and High Posts in Police and Administration to be most corrupt, but they are still thriving?

04. It is not ALWAYS that you get paid in this life for your actions. So why should one be good to others?

What is the COMPELLING reason for one to be good? That is not explained/

How can Karma be according to Dharma, when you do not believe in god, is that not a contradiction in itself.

05. Love is a very good quality, but every thing in the world does not go by that.

06. You are wrong that only Primitive People need fear of God to rectify their conduct.

Fear of God is needed in every age. The basic thing which is the root cause of all problems in our present times is total absence or lack of fear of God.

And that is why, when on materialistic ground, present generation is at the peak, on scale of violence, crime and cruelty, we are at the bottom.

07. As I told, fear of God is always needed.

08. The FEAR of punishment for breaking the laws, is mostly for poor and common people. The mighty and high people of the society are above the FEAR of Law, because they are law unto themselves.

Fear of God and Fear of Personal accountability on the Last day are the ONLY way to correct all sections of society equally.

Because in the eyes of God we all are equal and no one has any kind of superiority over any one else.

What Does It Mean To Be a Slave?

A Few Questions to Ask….

By Eric Peters (Contd.)

Is he free to raise his children as he considers best? To teach them as he sees fit? Or must he teach them things others decree he must teach them?
Is he even free to choose whom to marry? Or must he submit to the authority of others in even this most personal of life’s choices?
Is he free to defend himself when accosted by strangers? Or must he submit to these strangers, if they wear a certain type of outfit?(Did not the overseer also wear a certain type of outfit?)

May he own things?

More precisely, is he permitted other than conditional use of things? For instance, that which he may think of as “his” home. If it is in fact “his,” then surely that means no one else has legal claim to it and cannot take it away from him once he has paid the original seller in full. Ask him about the large payments he must make to others every year, forever, in order to be allowed to remain on “his” property. Remind him that plantation slaves also had homes – in the sense that they were allowed conditional use of dwellings. Dwellings ultimately owned by someone else. The slaves were permitted to use these dwellings so long as their labor provided enough return to the true owners of the dwelling. A slave who refused to work – who declined to make payments in the form of his labor then (and tax payments now) would soon discover who the true owner of “his” dwelling really was.
Just as today.

Ask whether he is compelled to give up whatever portion of the fruits of his labors others decide they are entitled to – and how this differs from the slave in the field being forced to pick cotton for the benefit of others .... Ask him what he thinks will happen if he declines to hand over the fruits of his labor….

Ask whether he is at liberty to do as he wills even with his own poor body. May he freely choose to treat his body’s ailments as he sees fit? Or will he be chained and jailed if he treats himself in other than the “lawful” manner?Ask whether he knows that he may be forcibly taken from his home if he declines to be “treated” in the manner prescribed by others.

Who, then, owns his body? His very person? If I have the power to compel you to do – or not do – then is it not a fact that to some degree at least, I am your owner?And in that case, are you not a slave?

The control need not be vicious or even mean. The owner of a beloved dog is no less the owner of the animal by dint of the fact that he treats it kindly and tends to its needs. The dog is not at liberty to come and go as it pleases. It is allowed to use certain items – an old sofa, for example – and not other things. It does not own anything.

It is owned.

Neither did the plantation slave own anything. And many had benevolent masters – for example, Thomas Jefferson – who tried to treat them with kindness, as they saw it. Who saw themselves as parents of subnormal adult children in need of guidance – and restraint. This benevolent treatment, however, in no way made the slaves other than slaves.

Behind the gentle guiding hand, always the whip.
As it is today – with the exception that today’s slaves are unaware of their condition and imagine themselves to be free. Its subtlety is its genius. Instead of individual plantations, there is one consolidated plantation called “our country.” But we are owned nonetheless.
It is immaterial that we are not normally chained… if the chains may be put on at the first hint of disobedience....

Well, we all know the answer to that one.

Throw it in the Woods?

You asked for other sources of Morality (Wanting to be good)(other than fear of god) and I gave you TWO. All else is irrelevant to the argument. Your reply to so many points and I will humor you in a later post. But the question has been adequately answered.

Other 'sources' of morality (wanting to be good, or simply: goodness) other than human fear (of god) are INTELLECT and LOVE.

1)From Human INTELLECT - we can Understand the logic that that certain actions by individuals are bad for society and thus in time results in hurting the individual too who did the bad action initially.

That our long term well being is tied to my neighbor's well being. I hurt my neighbor and he'll hurt me back if he can. Or he will hurt others. In time, everybody ends up hurting each other. So a lot of people hurt. No one has peace of mind- alert all the time they could be attacked. With little peace, people can't think about other things, cooperation between people is not there and so progress is hindered. With out peace and progress, happiness is not possible.

Above concept can be understood by any independently conscious beings who have and will use- sufficient intellect ||

2) From Love - the emotion that makes one sacrifice own comfort and well being for another's. Why a mother will give her life for her child, or why a total stranger will push you out of harms way of a moving bus while jumping in herself. This you and many others already know well.

==========

You said- no other sources of morality (reason to be good) other than fear of god, and I gave you two. You can choose to address them, counter even. Or accept them as other sources for morality. Saying they are not enough (like saying 'Love is not enough') is not refuting them, they are still there, they don't disappear, enough or not.

In fact the only REASON (not source) that morality is needed is:- it is necessary for the well being of society (increases peace, progress and happiness for all). Sources are different from reason,- which are Intellect and Love.

And fear (of god) is neither SOURCE nor REASON but a MEANS of enforcing morality on society. Necessary if other means do not work.

Peace.
