It seems that some of the teachings in the Quran shame you as you keep refusing to speak about the holy she camel of Allah.

What about Adam Lanza?
I see every one pouring their heart out for those innocent children who died at the hand of Adam Lanza.

Let us hear from our Atheists friends, what do they think?
1.Is it "natural and reasonable" that Adam Lanza and his victims meet the same end?
2. Once they died, their file is closed for ever? A Killer and Innocent Victim became equal after death?
3. Is that the way, this Universe is supposed to be running?
4. Why there should not be more Adam Lanza s in future?
I am asking this because similar Questions were asked after the Virginia Tech killing and people "thought" that such incidents would never be repeated again. They were wrong!!
1. They're all dead, that's the reality of the situation.
2. They're all dead, that about as equal as you can get. Wishful thinking does not change this.
3. What has the universe got to do with anything?
4. You're not a fortune teller, neither am I, that is a fact.

What people "think" is irrelevant. Do try to stick with the facts, your idle speculation is of no consequence. Neither is mine, it will not bring the children, the adults or young Mr. Alanza himself back, are all dead and gone.

We can only give comfort and support to the surviving families, friends and trauma victims.

Just as soon as you tell us about the holy she camel of Allah. Why does the teachings of the Quran shame you so?

Again if you chose to deny Josephus it only makes my job as an atheist all the easier.

Unlike Muq who refuses to answer questions or gives a silly non answer. For example I have several times asked him a simple yes or no question does he believe Muslim suicide bombers go to heaven. All he has to do is say yes or say no.

All this time and still he refuses to answer this.

I never thought Atheists would be such superficial people, who do not even have any beliefs except keep on repeating "there is no God, there are no religions, there are no prophets, there are no rules of morality, there is no difference between a normal marriage and marriage between two Sodomites and two Lesbians"
It's a category which defines any and all people who are not in the category "theism". Literally "a-theism" means "not theism".

Nothing more.

What should prevent them from using his example? Fear of Death? fear of Law? Pressure from society?

Muck is an Indian guy working for the Saudis, because Saudi's struggle to do anything themselves. But they can recite the koran, so well done them.

Muck is very touchy on the subject of islamic Female Genital Mutilation and won't tell us more about allah's holy she camel, as described in the koran.

Out of interest, if you google "holy she camel", the pages of childish nonsense that come up are quite an eye opener.

It means no theism, that is all. Just the complete abscence of any theism.

Now I haven't seen you repeating this stupidity yet, but you are the only one I have ever known of to say it >>>>"there is no God, there are no religions, there are no prophets, there are no rules of morality, there is no difference between a normal marriage and marriage between two Sodomites and two Lesbians" <<<<. That is strictly yours, but let's break it down.

You: There is no god
Me: There is no evidence of any gods.

You: there are no religions
Me: Of course there are, thousands and thousands, and they are all the only true one. LOL!

You:there are no prophets
Me: Of course there are, but they are not bringing the word of any god. Look at your prophet, if a god were involved, the play of a adult males penis would never be more important than the safety of a tiny infant who has just spent nine months being nurtured and protected by her mothers body. That a so-called prophet could sanction this insanity(baby raping), tells without doubt that his only interest is his own desires, with not a bit of input from any god.

You: there are no rules of morality
Me: Of course there are, but they didn't come from a god. We human beings do not need an invisible sky fairy to control us, we can and do, do it on our own. No threats needed

You: there is no difference between a normal marriage and marriage between two Sodomites and two Lesbians
Me:Normal marriages? They are all 3 normal marriages and are in no way your business unless you are in the marriage. By Sodomites, do you means your breathren who are f*cking babies in the rectums?
