Go ahead and be a skeptic. That doesn't stop the government and scientists from using reverse engineering. It is being done for many decades now. They are the ones who will keep up with alien technology and not you.
wow! that took 30 seconds...I'm beat!

To be honest, I don't really give. Just because you've seen the hoaxes, doesn't mean all are fake. Alien technology is still real whether you want to admit it or not.

Atheism just another form of faith, trying to use science to disprove God, but can they succeed, never!!!
One cannot prove a negative. it is logically impossible until everything aobut the universe is known.

what you are fogetting is that there is not one shred of evic=dence that any god, gods or goddesses exists. it is not amatter of belief or disbelief, it is that is is not even a question yet.

when you get that first shred of evidence, then it will be open for discussion.

That would be the other thin line between reading too much in symbols or events happening to you.
To such an extent that it interferes with your capacity to judge facts and real life occurences.
That means also scientific statements that have no religion, faith, believe or whatsoever included.
They get inappropriate emotional reactions or are seen in the light of the persons believe and consistently labeled in that way.
And the person is not capable of changing this behaviour. Can't be flexible, it is stronger than the person.

A phychologist should not be biassed.
Find another one, in that case.

Yes because it's top secret. And I'm not sharing anymore too even if this progresses to something since nobody wants evidence anyway. I gotta go

Add to that that you can also not proof or disproof an abstraction.
Especially not when the definition can include N to the neverending claims. That might also be contradictory.

So that's not what we do.

No. no proof of any alien technology has ever been provided. no proof of aliens ever visiting our puddly little planet has ever been given.

1-Not all prophets are discovered after their death: prophet Moses were recognised by the israelis as messenger of God and a prophet,Prophet Muhamad after 50 years of fight against him,have been recognised by the all the arabs as a messenger of Gof and a prophet...another reason is that prophets are always belied by mankind when they bring a message that are against their lusts and desires, thats why somany prophets like John,Zacharia... were killed by jews;and they have tied to kill prophet Jeremiah,Jesus...thats why some prophets are famous and others not famous.
2-What you forget is that religions(Islam,Christianity,j udaism) are divine laws,revelations to mankind that are to be applied societies for equality,justice,morality,hapi ness...between humans then a systeme of governance where its the creator the leader not human being using and exploiting another human being; But the Christians and jews separated religion from the governance thats why our societies are like that, one group of person oppress,exploit,enslave,impose their ideals to another group of people,the world to the most rich,most stronger...revelations are divine instruction books that are given to creatures in order to understant the reason of their existance as the instruction note of a new device,but if you refuse to apply the instruction,how will work the device.
3-If a freethinker has knowledge about a religion than people who claim to be followers, then acknowledge that not all the followers of a religions have knowledge,and that its not a reason to deny the authencity of this religion.religion is not something to follow blindly you have make researsh on his authencity.
3-Islam is not like christianity,the christians have killed many scientists when they admit their discories,Gallilea acused of blasphemy killed because he admited that the earth is spiral,in Spain,a woman have been treated as witch and burn alive when she resolved difficult mathematical calculation....But look at what prophet muhamad said to his companion:
"The seeking of knowledge is obligatory for every Muslim."
“One who treads a path in search of knowledge has his path to Paradise made easy by God…”
"Acquire knowledge and impart it to the people."
"Go back to your people and teach them."
"The word of wisdom is the lost property of the believer, so wherever he finds it he has a better right to it."
'Seek knowledge even as far as China' there are tooo much i cant tell you all, its to tell you that islam is a religion of knowledge,havent you year about the boom of islamic sciences,wisdom during medieval times?all these terrorist,murderer are not te representatives of islam, dont dont jugde a religion by the actions of his followers but searsh about the message of this religion(Holy book).
You all worship the same god myth ( the abrahamic god)
yes, the koran may talk about being open to science but in practice, just like the other religions they are not, as knowledge is a death knell for regligious cults like yours.

remember that persia, used to be the pinnacle of scientific thought until islam took over...same thing as europe and their religious experience..the dark ages.

aint your cults grand!

i didn't say that they were only discovered after their death...that is my point. if people knew they were prophets or a god as in jesus's case, why didn't they write down what htey said, or were told? this is always the case when god speaks, it is told about only a generation after, when the myth has had time to grow and cannot be proven...

But at least we know KandaDogon's offical stand.

From Mali?

But accepting criticism is still an alien art as far as the history of islam is concerned.
It would be dependent to what form of islam was adhered to.
56 versions or something, some would say more.
Different religious directions, groups/cults. What's in a name.

And how much knowledge the individual has of fiqh.
Whether a verse is of mayor importance-lawgiving or can be overridden.

Averroes would be a useful chap to look up on wiki.

Damascus court was the main center till at least the 8th century. Learning concentrated there.

Blah, blah, blah......Wrong Woody. Humans and their primitive technology are clueless about alien deep space technology. Woody and all the other Godbots are just like humans 200 years ago. "There's no way humans can do that" or "that will never happen".....Well, Woody you and all the others can just stay in the "No way zone" of the here and now. We, the intelligent futurists with experience in the events you and all the others will never accept.......The events mean only one thing...creation and evolution are products of fear and ignorance. Why would a highly advanced, unbelievably intelligent, interstellar travellers want to contact a primitive human species? Engineer and study life, control and manipulate the human animal.........definitely. Woody, never say never.Make sure you keep your tinfoil cap close by, just in case.

It seem that you is cristianizing all religions!specialy Islam,the generations who have lived during the lifetime of their prophets and had been ocular witnesses connot be equal to the generations that came far after!as for islam,the reasons for what Muslims didnt write the speeches(hadith) of prophet muhamad during his livetime are because they were already writing the Quran and were afraid to intermingle the word of Gods to the words of Prophet Muhamad! They way until the end of the revelations to collect the different hadiths;according to us the original and authentic Gospel of jesus have been lost,corrupted by the jews because they belied his message they and people distort his message by writing several fake and contradictory gospels full of greek and roman legends..thats why christianity have failed!thats not the case of islam! stop generalizing about religions
Don't flatter yourself, i criticize all cults equally.

yeah sure pal...they didn't write them down vbecause they didn't need to use him as a political relgious straw man and after he was dead it is impossible to question him on it...

just like the rest of the cults..

why shouldn't i generalize religions when all you cults do the same thing? like the learning thing i mentionsed earlier..cultws hate learning. education is the death knell for religions...

islam has done as much, oif not more against education than christianity..but hey, you guys are younger you can catch up with teh bloodshed and hatred if you work hard! your doing well so far...

Thats like saying 200 years ago, "Show us this rocket ship". Do you see the human psychosis, the human thought process. The big question of human existence. The human answer, creation and evolution......just two choices. And, the primitive human animal usually believes one or the other. So, it must be all there is.........Its not your fault woody, the mind has limits, those limits can get in the way of logic and understanding of the universe.
