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.

Morning GML. Pardon my ignorance, but what does the red box with white marks represent? cheers
It's an equality mantra.

It has to do with the Supreme Court's decision regarding the DOMA (defense of marriage-bigotry act) and California's equally bigoted Prop 8.

It started in the social media, and has spread to other venues.

To sport a red box with an equal sign inside (in a lighter shade) is indicative of support for marriage equality.

And that's pretty much it.

It looks like SCOTUS will rule in favor of equality, if all the pundits are even close to right.

But it also looks like SCOTUS will punt it back to the states-- which is fine, as it means that all the enlightened states who have already passed equality-marriage rights, can keep them-- and that all the OTHER states >>have<< to >>recognize<< the legality of those same marriages. Due to the Federal law requiring states' marriage rules to be honored in other states.

Slowly but surely, the USA drags itself out of the Dark Ages, into the Enlightened Age, where equality actually means equal.

Ans.

01. I did not say that there are no decent posters on the thread. I only said about those who are replying to my posts.

Look at them, do they look like "serious" or posts that are civil? If you support these posters, then you show yourself as a biased person.

02. By calling God as "Imaginary Egoistic God" you have proven how illogical and biased person you are. How can you call your version as "Logical" even without discussion.

I only answer serious and logical questions an queries,

03. I never disappear from any thread I join, unless it is closed. I keep watch on the discussions and comment when I find any worthy post.

04. Islam is the ONLY religion that is based on reason and logic and with as few Dogma as possible.

It is a common man's religion and that is why any one after close study of Islam join it.

People who write against Islam are generally those who have not studied about Islam and they are not aware of their own religion.

They say about Islam what they see in papers and News and Media, without taking pains to verify it or ask from knowledgeable Muslims.

Christians (it is claimed there are up to 2 billion of them) believe that Jesus is the only way, that he is unique and believing in ehat he did as recorded in the gospels in the only way to be saved.

They believe that Muhammed is a false prophet, and that he didnt fulfil any detailed prophecy. Stories about Muhammed splitting the moon in two and flying on a winged horse to heaven, are according to Christians, absurd fairy tales.

Muslims live in their bubble of delusion kidding themselves in believing one set of fairy tales. Christians are in a separate bubble of delusion believing in their set of fairy tales. The only sensible people are those who are outside both sets of delusional bubbles, and can think for themselves and reason for themselves, without the need to believe in religious dogma or ridiculous stories.

The reason why someone would believe in Allah, or the Christian Trinity, or Krishna, or Buddha, has little to do with what is the "true religion". In nearly all cases it is because that is the religion that someone has been indoctrinated into since birth. For example in the town where I live there is a Anglican church, Catholic, Methodist, Baptist and Evangelical churches. There are no mosques, sikh temples, buddhist temples, hindu temples, etc. Therefore it is highly unlikely anyone where I live would voluntarily adopt Islam. But in a neighbouring city there are lots of mosques. Where first, second and third generation immigrants are muslims. They are muslims because that is what they have been brought up to believe is true. It is not based on a rational assessment of the evidence.

So you are saying the practice of forcing little girls to marry old men, cutting off their nose and ears, killing those who leave Islam and killing those who do not convert to Islam reasonable and logical? Few dogmas? Lol!

Of course this brings up valid points about the true direction of Islam and you will of course refuse to discuss it....
Which speaks the truth of the matter and how I am correct, and you know it.

Capitalism is of course the end of mankind. But in the nuclear age it is the certain end of humanity in a deadly inferno! So we don`t have to worry any more! No billionair can this prevent.

Forget about religions at all! It is all rubbish. Poland is religiously a backward country. So is the USA and different other countries in the world.In capitalism and in the nuclear age it does not matter at all. Religions in a nuclear inferno means nothing at all. I am sure we are on the way to the end of mankind. Like it or not!

You have a pretty negative view of human nature ;) Nuclear war is a future possibility, but certainty?? To KNOW the future is a charactistic of end time religious beliefs of Christianity and Islam. Life is not that certain IMO.

There's no such thing as god. Just go back to society and contribute in a positive way without spreading your mental illness to other similarily ignorant people.

MUQ,then why were your views on God were contradicting when I asked you simple questions about God.There is nothing in my post as illogical as your series of posts that you posted in this thread.
1)When I asked you whether God needs us or not,you simply answered that God is independent and he does not need anybody.
2)I then asked you why did God create us.You couldn't give a proper answer to that.
3)In one of your posts,you cited a verse from Quran that said Human beings and Angels were created to serve God.
If God really needs service,then how could he be independent?
Don't these contradict each other?
Explain me the relation between these two polar views of yours.

MUG hasn't even acknowledged I've questioned him. Where does THAT place me in the queue? He's in denial of everything bearing so much as a minuscule resemblance to the truth, as well as fundamental logic. I gave-up when he did a runner, & I can't be bothered with his kind of contribution any longer.He desecrates bandwidth just by signing in.

On Muq's scribd page he admits that Allah has three daughters who are the ones that communicate to humanity, oh and Allah has sex with these three daughters but it's not invest because... Well because he's Allah! Lol! But this comes straight from the pre Islam days of Arabia where Allah is the moon and the stars are his daughters and he has relations with his three favorites.

Wait it gets better! Muq clearly states that Allah very likely has sexual intercourse with the Prophet Muhammad plunging his (sword) into Muhammad as he wishes!

Go to Muslim heaven and get anally raped by Allah of Allah so wishes!

Wow! Muslims actually believe this and still follow Islam? I guess now we know why submitting is so important to them!

Lmfao!

That is what a bit annoying of him.His views are very illogical.He just evaded my questions when I pointed out to his embarrassingly illogical statements.
