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.

E. Women in Armed Forces and Industries and in High manual labour intensive jobs.
There was a move to induct more women in combat jobs and in front lines.
But there were so many cases of women being raped by their "fellow soldiers and officers" that people have gone slow on its implementation.
E. Oldest Profession:
Yes that position is ALWAYS open to women from earliest to the latest time.
Needless to say that women uses her body to earn her living.
Films and Extras in films are very close to the oldest profession, where women use their bodies as a merchandise.
Club dancing, sex joints and so many profession come under this category.
F. Teaching and Nursing field:
These are areas where women have found maximum employment. And this is an honorable work for them.
These are areas that are not subject to their physical beauty and depend on skills.
And apparently these are areas where we find most women working in Muslim countries also!!
This is their "natural" position to work where they do not come in contact with strangers and men with hungry gazes.
Those who are sick and recovering are not as "wild" as we see in offices , areolplanes and in show biz!!
Conclusion:
Irrespective of what they say, the common plight of women in Western society is that she is mainly used as sex symbol.
In her working life, she has to bear hungry grazes and has to bear the taunts and comments on her body and looks by any one coming in her contact.
If she ignores her looks , she is more likely to loose her job than any male member.
Yet they will say that women are free in west to do what they like and how they live.
These are claims and have no link with the life of western women.
Please do not say that I am a male chauvinist pig!!

When you are able to back up any of the outdated chauvanistic garbage from your mentally ill cult you will get some respect and not before that.

The truth is that you are simply a coward who runs from the fact that you're a simple minded liar with no proof of god, lying to atheists in the atheist forum. For your failed cult.

You're telling me we should feel sympathy for the neaderthal who found a keyboard in the sand one day and decided to type what what his under developed cult brain could muster?

This is not how logic works. You need to put in the effort to prove something for which you have evidence.

Your lies are meaningless here, try and find forum with people that match your intellectual level.

I said husband and wife make basic unit of civilization.
A happy home where husband and wife help each other is a heaven on earth and best peace that they can have on earth.
Separate them and individually they lead miserable lives.
This is natures "law of equality" between men and women. each is incomplete without other.
And this is biggest tragedy of our modern time and this atheist, materialistic society... they look down on marriage, they look down on women that just builds the house....they look down on marriage, they look down on women limiting her life to house to teach children,
The encourage women to go out and enjoy life, at the cost of of not at the cost of their family and children and husband.
This is what is causing havoc in the life of western people and that will be what will cause its ultimate demise.
No, no, no, I said "woman", I did not say wife. I am referring to a human being who exists on her own regardless of the addition of a penis(husband*) to do her thinking for her. What you have described is a poor Stepford wife in a burka, and not a woman at all.

Does the husband not trust this accomplished woman to make decisions for both of them? If not, why on earth would she trust him? Neither woman nor man, need live a miserable life alone. We humans are quite capable of having wonderfully fufilled lives as single human beings, and also equally being miserable in a marriage, where both are not on equal footing. How often does the husband in your scenario, fully accept without question (nor feeling belittled by his own insecurities), these decisions made by a woman?

No family is made stronger by the coerced limitation of it's female members. If the husband is threatened by her strengths, he is the problem, not her.

* His penis is the only reason that he is capable of existing as a fully functional human being, correct?

Natural position? Where men can't see her? You are a male chauvinist pig!

A woman with self respect will spit in the face of any idiot who sees her as being only "tits and ass". You think all Western men do, and you are wrong. Human beings are sexual and we do view and judge(as nature deems) the opposite sex as being potential parents, for our children. We do not have to act on this assessment, and as thinking humans we can see more than that in another person. While far too many men still do see women that way, and Madison Avenue and the fashion industry unfortunately still mostly portray women as sexually safe pre-pubescent boy types, or vaginas with legs. The scenario you describe is the long past 1950's, the exceptions are what makes the news and is seems that is what you are judging our entire culture by ...... the news-worthy exceptions.

We are a culture where most women are no longer limited by their sexuality. We all are not strippers or Wal-mart door greeters, most of us have stepped far above those limits. Poverty, opportunity and the lack of education can keep male or female employees (those willing to accept the limitations) hostage to outdated thinking and economic slavery.

In the real world women found and run their own companies, educate themselves and their children, design and build their own homes. Children are the better off for having capable and well adjusted roles models in both parents.

Ans.

01. "natural state" of a women is as a wife, she remains single so long as she is not married.

Any society where majority of women do not marry is a sick society.

02. Husband and wife make a "couple" . A happy and healthy couple is most satisfying thing one can find on this earth.

A wise women using her charm properly can make her husband, "putty in her hand" and can get any thing she wants.

There is no confrontation in that, the decisions can be mutual. But in some matters, if things come to that, husband has an upper hand.

A single life (by both men and women) is an hellish state and crates void in the society.

04. I did not say "coerced submission" by females. Things can be decided mutually, but Husband is Head of Family and not Wife.

This is natural state of family life, you cannot have two bosses in the family at the same time.

And it is not because of 'Penis" at all.

Allah says in Quran "Men are protectors of women, because Allah has given them more power than women and because they spent on them".

There is absolute truth in this Quranic statement and it has worked for many, many centuries.

04. People are born and created at the same time. It is not in power of parents to "get their child born"…

05. Women can go out if needed, but with proper dress and veil, yes where strange and hungry eyes do not feat on her beauty, yes. And I am not a male chauvinist pig!!

06. In that case, western women would keep on spitting continuously till they are red in their faces!!

07. Whatever you say, in western society women are still a sex symbol and their beauty is the "best asset" for them.

08. Who says women cannot work and cannot run businenss and factories, but they should do that standing "side by side" with their husbands.

Successful Spinsters running big business are really a sad people. You can see their sadness in their eyes and in their manners.

A happy women at all times is one who is happily married and has children and her husband and her children are part of her life and partners in every thing they do.

Nature never intended men and women to live separate. It wanted them to live as a "Couple" and be happy and contended with each other.

Why are you pitching for a Non Natural state?

I think atheism will replace religion, but i'd say not in the next 200 years so its pretty futile, I wish i had Jean-Paul sartre's attitude to religion, a man so thoroughly atheist he deemed the whole subject beneath his intelligence to consider. Simply religion is divisive and restricts us as a species, simple as that. Check out a book that's causing a bit of a buzz in the Uk called 2082 the chronicles of hope. On the website the 1st chapter for the 1st book is on there for free, there's a speech in there by an atheist
In next 200 years, most probably Atheism will meet the same fate as Communism, Socialism, Nazism, Fascism and so many isms have met in past.

People would be ashamed to call themselves atheist and consider that word as an insult the same way you feel if some one calls you a Nazi or a Communist.

And to be honest, many of the false religions and superstitions shall be gone and false concept of God that many religions have.

With the advancement of science, the True face of Creator shall emerge and only religions that can cope up with findings of Science shall be able to withstand its on their legs.

Islam therefore has a very bright chance to overcome this tide of atheism and grow stronger and stronger.

Every summer, during Ramadan, we get an influx of wealthy tourists from Saudi in London. They shop in Harrods, Jewellers and design clothes shops. A lot of posing and driving round in Lamborghinis. Then on the flight back, the women change from jeans back to islamic dress. I guess the majority of them want to live like us, but have to go through a charade to appear respectable in a conservative society.

Islam is 1400 years old and growing....all these isms including atheism grew like wild grass a couple of decades ago and they will end in the same way.

A philosophy which even cannot be defined properly, how can it stand test of time.

Grandchildren of modern day atheists would probably feel ashamed to admit that their grandfather was an atheist, as they do for Nazism, Fascism and Communism.!!
