Well, certainly the "intelligence" of mindless software, for sure.

However, I'd expect a computer program to be more consistent.

America's Syria policy encourages the financing and supply of "terrorist organizations," Agence France-Presse reported Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov as saying on Thursday in the Iraqi capital.

Massive Syrians rally in Damascus in support of Assad
Full story: Xinhuanet
Hundreds of Syrians held a pro- government rally in the heart of the capital Damascus on Wednesday, in a show of support for the administration of President Bashar al- Assad, whose country has been gripped by a three-year-old deadly conflict.

What big jokes of Obama is of the terrible failures everywhere, as Obama is being against by global masses?

In Ukraine, Obama promotes hooliganism of protesters doing rioting to break the rule of law, to be anti by Ukrainian masses.

In Syria, Obama is also making his failure to say he wanted to strike Syria masses, yet Syrian masses are against him, in demonstrating the position of supporting Assad.

This is the new world not up to how US thinks as of these times.

Obama is really a nobody and US is merely a sore loser -- The world needs to look at the world as a whole in these new times.

I was referring to how he seems oblivious to his audience, which has no respect for Islam, but he continues to praise nevertheless, and to refer its book despite the fact that we don't consider it authoritative. Also, like most theists, words come pouring out, but almost none go in.

It's a level of detachment that feels less than fully human - like conversing with a Magic 8-Ball,or having a conversation with a bag of Chinese fortune cookies. You feel like only one real person is present.

In that case, you might expect to find evidence of multiple personalities. I was noting that I can't find evidence for one.

Indeed. MUQ clearly has no ability to actually think for himself.
He's essentially a human parrot, repeating the lies he was indoctrinated with, all without a single original thought of his own.
He is pretty quick to dodge questions, side step others posts, or just ignore them.

The spiel that he issues regarding the Koran, prophets and associated so called evidence as proof are pathetic in the extreme. I know a few muslims and they could knock muq into a cocked hat with more interesting argument.

It has been my opinion for some time now that muq is in fact a westerner, stirring trouble where ever he may, in oposition to islam.

Indeed.... you are correct.

Except the bag of fortune cookies would at least be tasty.

:D

Interesting. You may be correct, as MUQ is certainly not doing islam any favors.

So in other words you think the ghandi should burn in hell but Osama Bin Laden goes to heaven and gets lots of virgins.
Yet you claim without religion there is no basis for morality.
That makes you sound like a murderous psychopath who has zero concept of what morality even is.
I have no right to say or decide who goes to heaven or who goes to hell or should go to hell.

The criterion are mentioned in the revealed book of Allah, it is every one' choice to take the right path or take the wrong path.

They have themselves to blame for what choice they made.

Any why should you worry about others? What about You?

Displaying your morality again there.

Bin Laden gets his Virgins but Buddha and Jesus both burn in hell because they took 'the wrong path'.

What percentage of all the humans ever to have lived have had their everlasting souls sent to burn in hell for all eternity just because they didn't believe in the same sky fairy you do?
