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.

Why do you not understand that God NEVER said He wants you???????? You are a child of eternal HELL FIRE!
The prophet has spoken.

I already suspected I'm going to hell and now this confirms it. I'm beyond redeemable in the dollarsbill eyes.

So now my choices seem to be: track down dollarsbill and the one he loves and destroy them or have a hedonistic party filled with sex, drugs and rock-n-roll.

I think I'll choose the latter for the outrage from the former will certainly cause a brain aneurism by all like minded.

So party it is!
Everyone is invited!
Even dollarsbill's children against his wishes!

Might as well get a taste of what heaven is like before I get sent to Hell and no party invitations.

Soooo, what is heaven like? Is there sex, drugs and rock-n-roll there? Or is it a formal black tie ceremonial tea party for all eternity? An everlasting basking in the light of God until your soul develops melanoma?

Scripture seems to be lacking what it will be like to be in heaven for a 1000 or 100,000 or a million or a billion or a trillion years.

We don't hear about what Abraham is thinking now.

Let's see what's on the calendar for tomorrow. Hmmm. Basking in the glory of god.

Again?!?

I wonder what Satan has planned? Rumor has it, Elvis is putting on a show. That'd be nice to see.

So let's see if this prediction is true! NO RELIGION OR ATHEISM ON PLANET EARTH?
Sounds like a peaceful planet to me!
Dude, you are so, like, so awesome! Is your newsletter free or do I have to, like, paypal you some monies or something?

I'd really like how you'd, like, allocate limited resources and stuff, and hear how you'll deal with the non-conformists to your ultimate peace plan.

If we can all agree to elect you as king of the world and obey your every decision, we'd be all set. That would be sweet!

Wait.

No.

You still owe me 20 bucks.

I think John, Paul or Ringo would be a better king.

Screw your newsletter and your post.

There sure is a lot of guff up there - if we launch theists into a high-earth orbit, we'd be fine - they won't die of course because their god will protect them. right?
A lot of that guff is our trash, but launching them, wh not ... why would they object to being fast tracked to heaven?

R. P.: You ask stupid questions, why?
MUQ: I am least interested about Luna, being goddess or not and her married life.
R. P.: Why do you say moon is married? Silly fool, big hunks of dirt and rock, don't marry, nor do they have daughters. Man has walked on the face of the moon, it is a hunk of rock
MUQ: Where in Islam you find moon being referred to as a female and having daughters?
R. P.: In Islam, I'd guess that any stupid thing is possible, but in the real world rocks don't have daughters, nor did I say that they do. That was all your foolish tripe.

Islam does not stand on its own foundation. If Mohammed is the "last" prophet, that implies there were others before him.

Does not Islam consider Jesus to be a prophet?

Or the dawn of Judaism and a single god back to Abraham?

It's like you are trying to tell me the elevators in the lobby of a building can only go up. Never mind that there is a basement or sub-floors for that is descending into darkness. And yet, your building can only stand because of that foundation.

And when the earth quakes of scrutiny shakes and collapses that foundation, what does that do to your building of Islam? Pray for a miracle for Islam to still stand?

Free will argument.

With this, you are admitting God is not omniscient.

Or It is, but with It's divine plan allows "scumbags" to exist to fulfill the Divine plan.

So tell me how "Allah Akbar!" is again?

It's really starting to sound your God is a greater form of an Internet troll.



And that "True" God just might be too busy smoking hashish and watching reruns of the dinosaur era.

3.

f. A representative republic will replace the divine right of kings.

We've only tried that for a couple hundred years so far. The results are actually pretty impressive.

Ans.

A. Islam standing on its own foundations:

That does not mean that there were no prophets before the last prophet. Islam recognizes the personality and teachings of those prophets and says that all prophets preached the same message of Islam.

The followers of all past prophets were Muslims and Islam was the name of religion of all past prophets.

There were and there are good people in all past religions, but if read their scriptures, they would see that is prophesizes about the last prophet.

Quran and sayings of Last prophet combine all the good teachings of past prophets.

B. Islam's simile with Multi Story buildings:

The simile is not proper, but even if we agree, these "underground floors", are they not part of the same building, can any building stand, if we just remove these underground floors?

The proper simile of Islam is like a Grand and Powerful and Majestic tree. Its trunk and branches and leaves are above ground that provide shade, fruit and tranquility to every one under its cover.

While its roots go deep into the ground, gathering all the nutrition from the earth. The root are the "faith and article of beliefs" and Trunk is the Universal Brotherhood and branches and leaves are acts of good deed coming from individual muslims.

Allah Knows best.

03. Freewill:

How granting freewill to humans means God is not Omniscient? What sort of argument is this?

There is only one God in the universe. He might be known by many names in different languages. But to say that Jesus is God is blasphemy, because Jesus was a human and God is not human.

03. Rights of republic:

The knowledge of humans is limited and they cannot have the same foresight as their Creator, who is source of knowledge.

That is why we see human laws making U-turn many times. One thing is unlawful today, tomorrow it becomes legal and illegal day after tomorrow.

This dwindling is not present in laws made by Creator. They do not change because of whims and fancies of the rulers.
