Then why you handed over that baton to some one else, saying you have lost all interest in that exciting topic?
How come your interest was re-kindled?
Please tell me what are the properties of a True Prophet of God that I have listed so far?
PS:
It would not be difficult for you to review past pages...
Even if you are able to post even five of those, I will think your interest is genuine.
You always find a way to evade my questions.I asked a question and you're not answering it.

@MUQ
Here are the five qualities of prophet that you wanted me to know.
1)Prophets are human beings
2)Prophets perform miracles.
3)Prophets do not contradict each other.
4)Prophets are sent by God.
5)Prophets receive messages from angels.
Now answer my question and prove that your're not afraid of discussion with skeptical minds.

1. I told you lady, how much you try to "be little" that male contribution…. You and your "factory" is just a waste and wither away without that slightest contribution.
And is that all? The male provides for the physical needs of baby and his mother, he takes part in introducing valor and values into the child.
2. If you want to consider yourself an animal, you have right to do it, I do not mind. Our Creator made us above those Animals and you want to drag you down to that level.
May be some day, dogs will eat your meat and not you their'!!
3A. Our prophet never raped any one. He had sexual relations with females after proper marriage with the. You have no knowledge of his life.
6. If Homos are born, what about other sexual perverts? Why are they not born as "natural".
Why not murderers and robbers and serial killers, who makes them as such?
7. So we both are in a race for that "padded cell"? Let us see who reaches their first.
1. 999,999 or so other sperm washed away as insignificant waste products. The woman can and will provide for the needs of both her female, or male children. She will teach her child the values which benefit the human race, and there is no valor in a man who would thigh a baby.

2. You are slow! Are you not flesh and blood? If you are flesh and blood, you are animal. The other choices are mineral and vegetable.

3.A We do not have a creator, you loons have a false prophet who came with a sword and forced you to hand over children to be raped. Call it marriage if you will, it is still the rape of children. Thighing is rape.

6. Homosexuality is not a perversion, thighing is a perversion. Robbery and murder are crimes.

7. That was proof of your lies, I merely pointed them out.

MUG, I am a creature of habit, not 100% of my circle accept it. I am NOT a habitual liar. Indeed, I say what's on my mind, more so if I can show it to be the truth. If that ruffles feathers, it is NOT my problem. I ceased “name calling” the day I left kindergarten, exactly where everyone else should leave it.
Therefore, I will reiterate that if you sincerely believe we are somehow taught our sexual orientation, you would do yourself a great service burning your 'holy' books and make today memorable by replacing them by encyclopedia.
After which, you will see your former self in the light that the rest of us have seen you in; a pathetic, scared of fact, dimwit.

I haven't read the book yet, but it sounds quite interesting. Arguably, the USA (for example) is a society that's overcoming its prejudices and becoming more inclusive.

It has largely overcome prejudices against women, then blacks and now gays. According to one poll, only 54% of USAmericans would vote for a non-believer for high political office. Hopefully, it will become inclusive of non-believers too - an expanding circle of inclusiveness.

Now that is a better view of humanity's future than some crazy religious armageddon.

Humanity is only a few million years old and modern man a few hundred years. Viewed like that, we're at the start of our journey not near its end.

Probably not, but then it was just a half century or so ago that it was a huge deal that a *gasp* catholic was president.

even the different sects of the same cult cannot get along. ahh...the inherent divisiveness of religious cults!

My apologies brother, you DO follow our discussions.

I was not responding to your posts, because you withdrew from the discussion, saying you have no interest in the topic and let some some else take it over.

OK, if you are interested in this topic, please put back your question, but it should be on the topic which we are discussing, not like a fishing trip.

The topic is "What are the qualities of a True Prophet of God".... I am not mentioning any name, mind it.

Just giving a list of qualities, once it is over, we can bring personalities into it and verify, how much they qualify.

So please ask your question on this subject.

US seeks wide international support for Syria chemical weapons deal, meeting allies in Paris

Larry Downing, Pool/Associated Press - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, in white, gets out of his car before departing Ben Gurion airport in Tel Aviv, Israel, Sunday, Sept. 15, 2013. Kerry on Sunday sent a strong warning to Syria, saying ‘the threat of force is real’ if it does not carry out an internationally brokered agreement to hand over its chemical weapons.
By Associated Press, Updated: Monday, September 16, 12:29 AM
PARIS — Secretary of State John Kerry is briefing some of the United States’ closest allies and working out details on how to put an end to Syria’s chemical weapons program.

A day after visiting Israeli leaders, Kerry was due to meet Monday with top officials from France, Britain, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, who had pressed for military strikes on Syria after the Aug. 21 poison gas attack that killed hundreds.

++======

--------

What a ridiculous saying for dismantling Syria's chemical weapons is, as they have not killed people, and as whether rebels used sarin gas, that is besides the point?
Who do you think they are,as what rights they have to say to do that, to dare to commit atrocity by using and doing the same thing again of chemical weapons saying, as enough is too much enough already--only pervert robots would act like that, such as Putin as the disgrace ugliness, by doing everything US says--including peace plan with no Assad for the rebels as Putin is Muslim rebels' buddy sweetheart, and about North Korea and Iran too?
Whether 8/21 incident shows anything, there have been too many incidents proving US weapons slaughtered too many people already, by just going out to look for destroying and dismantling what they say chemical weapons.

Logical facts prove US weapons had killed too many people, and by that logic, US should be dismantled of its weapons first, to see no more genocides from US anymore from International backing instead.

If Putin does the call for US, Russia might as well dismantle its weapons.

I believe both the leader of the opposition, Mr Ed Miliband and the current Deputy PM are both non-believers and most other Brits (MPs or otherwise) don't seriously believe that a god sent a prophet to Earth or any nonsense like that.

The main point is that few voters here are influenced by their religion, religious faith, or lack of any. The situation in the UK is a far healthier and more realistic, in my opinion. That is what I think we should all want to see in the USA too.

Don't change the subject, no one said that the man has no role, only that his role is to provide but a single drop of fluid. Beg? LOL! I don't think so. You really don't know anything about men or women do you? Only houris and ears get pierced. You are a male chauvinist pig, and you repeatedly prove it.

3. A god who cannot protect children from thighing or a pedophile prophet is too puny to have actually created women or children.

6. Homosexuality is as natural as ones eye color. It is a small percentage of all people, every race, every country, every family, but it is there.

Science is not that far away from knowing before birth if a child will be homosexual, and there is already much to say why it happens, and how. A woman in her first pregnancy will almost never give birth to a male homosexual child, but with the fetal exposure to certain hormones in each pregnancy after that, the chances rise, of her sons being born gay. Imagine that there will be a test that a doctor can do, which will tell you if your son will be born gay, what will you do when a doctor tells your wife that the baby she is carrying will be homosexual?

Again, you fail to comprehend. There are philosophers who are atheist and philosophies that are atheist, but there is no specific 'atheist philosophy' to which all atheists subscribe.

Atheists are simply people who don't believe in what people describe as god or gods...

Thanks for forecasting my happy death, I really go for that. I DO practice EXACTLY what I preach. If you'd surface from ur BS just once, you would see that ur comment is without foundation, akin to ur unshakable belief in creationism. But what about responding to the question posed?
