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.

Muhammed knew which buttons to press. Gardens of paradise, fresh fruit and dates, shade underneath palm trees, free flowing wine, slaves on hand to see to every whim, 72 virgins a man to indulge every sensual whim and pleasure. A fantasy of your average 7th century desert nomad. And brainwashed ppl like Muq believe such fairy tales are literally true.
And the Christian version is to endless sing hallelujahs and praises to Yahweh the blood thirsty God of the Old Testament. A celestial North Korea. Whilst the majority of humankind is suffering horrific torment burning in hell. Very sick minds indeed.

LOL! So true-- they feel that their uninformed "opinion" is as good as, or superior, to those of people who have studied the issue(s) for years...

They are an arrogant bunch-- what else? They also pretend that the Ultimate Creator of Everything has a special plan for little old, insignificant they.
Amusing, really.

MUQ
Ans.
I answer questions which are sincere and asked in the spirit of some one seeking the knowledge.
Sounds like a cop out and you know it. With today's Muslims acting like animals closing themselves up to kill non believers each and very day you should expect questions on said subject.
I do not answer "loaded Questions" where the intention of person is malafied.
You mean straight forward questions that are difficult to spin away with babbling.
Regarding Suicide Bombers, I told that general principle of Islam is Killing any innocent man, women or child intentionally is one of the Biggest of Big sins in Islam.
Ah but are infidels ( non believers ) deemed innocent? You always avoid this using the innocent label. This is a cop out we all see it. Tell us then Muq are infidels innocent? The answer is no and thus by your own beliefs it is righteous to suicide bomb them. Your refusal to answer the question about who you deem infidels tells us this and you know it.
If some one goes to hell or heaven is in the hands of God and not mine.
Another cop out and avoiding the question. I asked in your opinion do they go to hell. Why is it so difficult for you to just say, yes I believe that all Muslim suicide bombers are breaking the commands of Islam and going to hell. You can't say this because you believe that killing non believers or infidels is worthy of heaven.
The same holds good for those who drop bombs and missiles into civilian populated area, knowing beforehand that they would be killing scores of innocent people.
Muslims are innocent because they are Muslim yes? Are Jews innocent people Muq? Yes you will refuse to answer this.
Regarding the camel which was sent as a sign to People of THAMUD, your question is malafied from beginning to end and such questions I do not answer.
So the story of the holy she-camel of Allah brings you shame. Are you not supposed to believe thy each word in the Quran is sacred and from Allah? Don't you believe that every word is to be celebrated and rejoiced? It seems no no you do not. The story of the holy she-camel of Allah brings you great humiliation and shame. Now if only the rest of that ancient fan fiction caused you shame you would become a better person.
I only said that "certain qualifications" are needed to interpret religious scholars.
Every Tom, Dick and Harry, has no right to come forward and say "In my views the interpretation of this verse should be like this and not this. Without having least knowledge of what he or she is talking about.
Muq every Tom Dick and Harry doesn't need to say what the passages mean. The passages do that themselves just as when Muhammad ordered every member of the Banu tribe to be killed even after they peacefully surrendered. Your Quran demands the blood of all non believers and more dying while killing non believers is a straight ticket to heaven with palaces and 75 virgin sex slaves. This is not peaceful insightful writings in today's day and age. It's barbaric it's bloodlust appropriate for a horror movie not a religion. You know this and that is why you refuse my questions because my questions clearly show your religion as the savage barbaric filth it is.
Amen
Lol couldn't help that last one :))
Only uneducated people can believe in heaven or hell and the hole religious garbage!

Did you go to SEMO?
No. I moved from my native state of California to Missouri at age 44 to practice medicine in Poplar Bluff because there were no HMOs there, which was important to me. And I retired 11 years later, in 2009, and moved to Mexico. That was my Missouri experience.

I knew plenty of drug reps from Cape and Jackson, many of whom were SEMO graduates. And many patients were students at SEMO.

When we went to Cape, it was either to shop at the mall, to use the little airport there to connect up to St. Louis, or for one of the drug company sponsored dinners. We would often eat at Brouchards, Celebrations, New Orleans or Mannees. And once, we saw Bob Dylan at the Show Me Center.

That's a perfect description. I used to say that I'm a liberal, atheistic Deadhead Californian living in the reddest part of a red state surrounded by eight red states (in 2004, anyways) where the Midwest meets the South - yahoo, y'all!

But it is beautiful. My wife and I had a cabin on stilts on the Current river in Van Buren in the Mark Twain National Forest, and we loved being there.

A strange case of Unanimity:

Have you people observed? I have seen recently a strange case of unanimity amongst the various religious groups populating our planet at this time.

Let me elaborate a little:

A. Jews:

They say, we have some "problems" with our scriptures, we are not very sure who actually wrote these books, and we have some problems with practicalability of some of our practices and rituals in current times……

But one thing about which we are 100 % sure is that Quran is false and Your Prophet is a false Prophet.

B. Christians:

They say "While we are not sure who actually wrote these Gospels and we are not sure how St. Paul got access to Jesus and there are so many sects and denominations in Christianity and we do not know "for sure" which one has "Holy Spirit" inside them and we are not "United on Homosexuality, Abortion, Divorce and a few other burning issues…..

But one thing about which we are 100 % sure is that Quran is false and Your Prophet is a false Prophet.

C. Hindus:

They say "We have "some problems" on how to define who is Hindu, and we have no central belief system or single scripture, we have so many denominations that we cannot keep track on them, and we just try to pose a united face to outside world….

But one thing about which we are 100 % sure is that Quran is false and Your Prophet is a false Prophet.

D. Buddhists:

They say "While we are not sure what were the "original teachings" of Lord Buddha and how they reached down to us and we do not know "who" started this practice of erecting the status of Lord Buddha and worship it, we do not have any code of law so to say…..

But one thing about which we are 100 % sure is that Quran is false and Your Prophet is a false Prophet.

E. Sikhs:

They say "We are not really sure that Guru Nanak brought a New religion and we do not have a complete code of law and our Guru Granth Sahib has contributions from many person, and we follow many Hindu laws and ceremonies and their code in our daily life….

But one thing about which we are 100 % sure is that Quran is false and Your Prophet is a false Prophet.

F. Modern Materialists:

They say "While we do not support any religious group and we have some reservations about every religion, we see some good things in almost every religion (with the exception of only one religion)…. And we can see the utility of these religions in distant past……

But one thing about which we are 100 % sure is that Quran is false and Your Prophet is a false Prophet.

G. Atheists:

They say "All these religions are man made and served needs to some vested interests in their times, they might have saved some socities from disintegration in times gone by……we think most of these religions have served their purpose and have nothing to offer in our times….

But one thing about which we are 100 % sure is that Quran is false and Your Prophet is a false Prophet.

MUQ, all those theist groups are all united in thinking they have the right religion. Yet all those religions are incompatible and teach contradictory things. This just proves one thing. That all religions are man made.

I dont see Islam any different. All religions have the same basic components. They offer comfort. And believers believe them cause its what they are taught to believe in their culture and community.

1. Do you not think that this is a strange behaviour.
What would be strange would be for any non-Muslim to think that the Qur'an was more than mythology.
MUQ wrote:
While these different groups are hardly united on any other issue, the thing they are united on is that "Quran is false and Our prophet is a false Prophet"
Remarkably, all of them but the Christians are united that the Christians scriptures are mythology.

And what are the odds that they're all united in thinking that atheists are wrong?
MUQ wrote:
2.... our prophet said "All these who reject Islam are one group" and we see that all Non Muslims unite when there is any dispute with any Muslim country.
This is one of the more dangerous aspects of religion. It's so divisive, so us-against-them. The whole world is wrong and evil except just one group.
MUQ wrote:
3. So is this situation scary? And Muslims should feel afraid? By no means, it is for good of Muslims, it is high time for them to come back to Islam and unite and pose a united front to enemies of Islam.
We need this kind of thinking expunged from the planet - or at least from governments.
MUQ wrote:
They were amazed to see so much anti Islamic bias in these diverse groups, who do not agree on any single issue.
This strange behaviour told them that Islam must be right and all these religious groups are 'afraid" of Islam!!
Dream on.

There is no real conflict between science and religion. What is in conflict is the rudimentary science of 2000 BC, and the modern science of the 21th century AD. Your issue has to do with your intolerance of Christianity.

Or maybe it's the intolerance of Christianity towards anything that questions it, or casts its teaching in doubt.

C'mon, you and I both know that "Christianity" would love it if every time a light switch was flipped or a doctor performed a surgery, the people associated with that proclaimed; "LOOK AT WHAT THE JESUS DID!"

There is an inherent conflict with the thinking behind each one.

Science is the process of using reason and evidence to determine knowledge.

Religion is the process of claiming knowledge and ignoring all reason and evidence which contradicts it.

9 years old is the age of adulthood in Islam. You didn't think Muhammad would wait until she hit double digits in age right?
<quoted text>
Moohumud force-married her when she was 6.

He claims he waited until she was 9... but Moohumud was also illiterate, so I doubt he could count, either.

Putting his claims of waiting in serious doubt. It's more likely that she didn't reach puberty until 9, when his repeated sexual attacks would finally yield offspring.

He was one sick f*** for sure. No wonder Islam is so Effed up.

Christianity has made itself intolerable: by bullying and murdering any and all who oppose it's ugly side.

And it has an ugly side, to be sure-- starting with bullying of gays, including sanctioned child abuse, and continuing to abuse and oppression of women.

With a nice side of slavery along the way.

There is much to be intolerant of christianity, and it's very, very ugly history.

Humanity does that without religion. The western world would have never risen to its pre eminent level with an easier life then most in the world without Christianity. The elitists gearing for world government have done their job and the religion has been decimated. Even with the flaws. Now government is replacing the void and the tyranny of the police state will rear its ugly head and make wha tyou wrote look like a walk in the park. People can be ignorant. And that is all people.

That switch wouldn't be there if it weren't for the availability of God given "natural resources". Doctors who can't explain a sudden remission or complete recovery from a traumatic head injury often call these unexplained events,"miracles".
