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.

MUQ, how do you know god is merciful ?
Ans.

The question is very simple, but answer requires books upon books, in Quran Allah says "If you (try to) count Allah's bounties, you will not be able do so".

So I will just give you one more example:

3. Our Power of Speech:

Speech of humans is totally different from every other living form on this earth.

Humans have a tendency to express their ideas thru speech which is not seen in any other life form.

It is strange how many different languages humans speak on this earth, but they all are able to convey their feeling to other humans.

Just imagine if humans did not have power of speech and were just as other living forms.

When some thing happens to our speech organs, how much we try to find some cure for it.

And the solutions are never as good and as efficient as what we had from God.

How much money we spend and We thank Doctors and all others who helped us, but do we ever thank God for His Free Gift to us?

Please reflect on it.

How about actually participating in the discussion and not just spamming your scribd page? It makes you look really ignorant and reflects poorly on Muslims.

Reflect on it.

Did MUQ really say this?

"What is your definition of a child? According to my definition any male who has reached the age of puberty is not a boy but a man.

And any female who has reached the age of menstruation is not a girl but a lady.
So our prophet did not marry any girl, but a lady."

At some point, I was going to ask him what he thought about a woman traveling alone and not being molested. From what I understand, Mohammed wished that was the way of the world, but it was not to be at that time. And here we are, 1400 years post Mohammed and his followers still don't seem to get that idea.

Apparently, girls who have their period are fair game to prey on and boys will be boys. Just give them a bit of time to become men. Yeah, right.
Ans.

01. First of all it is not a "must" that as soon as boys and girl reach the age of marriage they be married.

It is a legal position, and any one doing so will not be breaking any rule or code of law.

Delaying marriage is individual's decision and it should remain like that.

02. Women traveling alone should have a male guardian with them, is to save women from hardship and save their personality.

We see so many cases of single women traveling alone, get molested in almost every country of the world.

Islam protects women and does not want to put them in dangerous situations.

Those doing so pay the price every now and then.

It is there choice, take it or leave it.

PS:

Nothing much has changed in 1400 years, human psychology has remained the same.

Only the men have become bolder and the crimes against women and violence is on the rise.

You haven't explained why your Moohumud (misspelling a deliberate insult) married a 6 year old, and raped her repeatedly when she was 9--raped her until she got pregnant.

Why?

Marriages are arranged, it has nothing to do with individual choices there.

Is atheism linked to autism? Controversial study points to  relationship between the two
People with 'mild' forms of autism are more likely to be atheists, according to a controversial new study - and more likely to shun organised religion in general.
The study, which looked at posts on autism forums, focused on people with high-functioning autism such as Asperger's.
The study, from University of Boston, speculates that common autistic spectrum behaviours such as 'a preference for logical beliefs' and a distrust of metaphor and figures of speech, could be responsible.

Autism quotient (AQ) scores among the surveyed adults are plotted against their declared religious beliefs - atheists are a clear majority
The study authors, Catherine Caldwell-Harris and Patrick MacNamara  studied discussions by 192 different posters on an autism website. They also looked at a survey of 61 people with high-functioning autism, and graphed  against results from the Autism Spectrum Quotient (AQ) test.
The results appeared to show that those with high AQ scores were 'more likely' to be atheists.
In the group of high-functionining autistic individuals, 26 per cent were atheists, compared to 16 per cent of 'neurotypical' individuals.

They said this is the first 'systematic study of the religious beliefs of autistic spectrum individuals who have normal or near-normal intelligence.'
The paper,'investigates the proposal that individual differences in belief will reflect cognitive processing styles, with high functioning autism being an extreme style that will predispose towards nonbelief.'
Caroline Hattersley, Head of Information, Advice and Advocacy at The National Autistic Society said:'Autism affects people from every sector of society and people with autism represent the full range of religious and non-religious beliefs.

We are atheists Muq not Christians. So what you are saying is that Christians and Muslims are guilty of killing their women?

Perhaps you are seeing why society needs to move away from Islam and Christianity then?

Thor thinks you are a pansy. Thor also thinks your Moohumud is a pervert, and would smash him with his hammer, except moohumud is beneath such things.

And is not a worthy opponent. Thor leaves such trash to the scabby dogs to gnaw upon.
