My blog posts on religion have attracted a lot of controversy. Religious people are annoyed by my claim that belief in God will go the way of horse transportation, and for much the same reason, specifically an improved standard of living.

Mine too....eventually. I was older, asked to teach a class and therefore began to delve more deeply in the whys and wherefores.

I had more questions than answers but I still believed that the stories (esp. NT) were good moral lessons for children. Bleh, I should have showed old episodes of Mr. Roger's Neighborhood and Captain Kangaroo....and promoted 'stranger danger', birth control and sex ed for the older ones.

The whole issue with the 72 virgins thing, is being muslim virgins, they'll come with 72 murderous brothers, fathers and uncles that can't wait to honour kill the martyr the second he touches their darling bag headed bimbo.
<quoted text>
The mention of 72 virgins in the afterlife of martyrs is a metaphor, to express peace, joy and tranquility after death - like a reward one could say.
Like all ancient texts (Bible and New Testament included), the Quoran was written in an allegoric form, not to be taken strictly to the letter.

Nobody cares about your animal that you call the prophet Muhammad. But if you insist on talking about Muslim animals tell us about the holy she camel of Allah.

<quoted text>Agree totally. The Christians are always saying:
The Bible tells us it is the word of God. The word of God is perfect. So the Bible is perfect. Therefore the Bible is the word of God. And so on.
Perfect! Depends on definition of that

Why not take it "literally"? The life in hereafter shall be both Physical and Spiritual.
There will be plenty for both parts.
Sexual desire and Polygamy is the "natural state" of any healthy male on this earth, the same shall be in the hereafter. A number 72 is not the "maximum" it would be "at least"!!
The "natural taste" of a good women on earth is to be linked with "one man" through out his life and the same shall be her status in the hereafter also.
A man who has more than one wife is not looked down on this earth, while any woman who has "more than one husband" is termed "whore" on this earth. Why should it be any different in the hereafter.
Why people should try to "down play" to discuss the needs of human body in the paradise?
Quran is very specific about it, it mentions the need of human body.... and then adds the Spiritual Bliss they shall have.
After mentioning details of some of the delights it ends with 'And Some thing More from Ourselves"!!
What is this?
Prophet said 'Some thing which no eyes ever saw, which no ears ever heard and with no Mind ever imagined"!!
Such is the description of Paradise in Quran ... Covering both Physical and Spiritual Bliss of the Highest Order!!
You're brainwashed just like everyone else that believes in religion.

This is an atheist forum where people aren't brainwashed and don't believe in things that aren't really there.

You wil have more success going to a religious forum, where more people will think (and I use the word loosely) like you and you might be able to convert some more people as equally stupid as yourself.

So the Quran writers thousands of years later were able to ad some nonsense to the bible verses. So what?
MUQ wrote:
<quoted text>
Ans.
If after Quoting Quranic verses about creation side by side with Biblical verses, you "deduce" that Quran "copied" it from Bible, then I can only say "You are not a fit person to compare scriptures at all".
The "exactitude" of Bible is missing in Quran!! The language is "confused and allegorical" in Quran as compared to 6, 24 hours period mentioned in Bible.
As per Quranic description, heavens and skies were being made and developed "in parallel and not is series as Bible says".
The comparison between Bible and Quranic stories is as I said "between Chalk and Cheese"
And in the end the question remains, if our prophet could do it, why no Arab or Non Arab was "ever able to repeat it"?
Does it not takes your head to a swim?

Not bothered. As I said, you're the crappest game of "Guess Who" ever.

But if you speak BS, and like many liars, you do contradict yourself regularly, I will call you on it as I see fit.

Muq said no if a woman has more than one man he is a whore so even if she blows herself up she doesn't get the same quality of Muslim paradise that the men suicide bombers get.

They would get 72 virgin women as well so it would be a les fest.

Of course the men just get 72 virgins in the form of Allah's holy she camel so it's a wash either way.

US school shooting: Tearful Barack Obama calls for 'meaningful action'

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/world/

WASHINGTON: A tearful President Barack Obama said US leaders must "take meaningful action'' regardless of politics in response to the mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school.

The president teared up, at times using an index finger to wipe at the corner of his eyes, as he addressed the nation from the White House. He also paused repeatedly as he struggled to keep his composure while speaking of the children, ages 5 to 10, who had died and the life milestones they now would miss.

He said, quote, "Our hearts are broken.''

Shortly before speaking, Obama ordered that US flags be flown at half-staff on public grounds through Tuesday.

Comments (from MUQ):

So now the "Recently elected Lame Duck President" has asked to take "Meaningful Response" on that school shooting Incident. Let us see different scenarios and the "Meaningful Response" that one could take:

A. The Killing was from a Missile or Bomb Attack from any Muslim country in the world:

Meaningful Response:

Launch a full scale war on that country and bring it to "Middle ages" in four or five days. There is no limit on the response. Use any weapons, use Carpet BombingÂ…

B. The Killing was from a Missile attack or Bomb Attack but the country was Isreal:

Meaningful Response:

It must have been a mistake, otherwise USA never expects that a "friendly nation" like Isreal would do such a heinous crime.

President of USA has "personally asked" the HE the President of Isreal to issue a "written and signed apology" that such an incident shall never be repeated in future. And Israel planes and Missiles shall not treat USA as an "enemy country".

They should plan and execute their "training missions" in so many Non Civilized countries in their neighborhood.

C. The Killing was done by members of any Islamic group:

Meaningful Response:

Impose an "immediate ban" on that Group, and arrest all its members, launch a "punitive Air Strikes" against is head quarters in any country it would be.

Send all the arrested persons to GITMO camp, so they be nor covered any US or International law and hold them captive till they die or commit suicide.

D. The Killing is done by Members of any Extremist Jewish or Christian Group:

Meaningful Response:

The President has "personally asked" US Surgeon General to send a team of "Imminent Mental Doctors" to talk to these people and find out real reason of this "Extremist behaviour".

It is hoped that after an extensive session, most people would see the light and turn the corner and join the main stream.
