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.

The fact is peoples will not have enough time any more to figure out a long debate about religions or not in the nuclear Age. Not the Religion is the urgent Thing humanity has to solve it is to get rid fast from Atom Desaster as quickly as possible. If not we are on the verge of nihilating the human race. That is the question. to be or not to be. That is the number one question of survival.

There are planty of people today who claim that God is speaking to them. Those people are having auditory hallucinations. Today we call that schizophrenia. It is a medical condition, a diagnosable mental illness.

Muq, mental illness is a lot easier to understand when looking from the outside at other belief systems.

Pentecostal Christians who speak in tongues, fall on the floor, writhing around, talking gibberish; they are clearly crazy.

Catholic Christians who believe that when the priest prays over a wafer of bread it becomes the body/flesh of Jesus, a Jewish man who lived 2000 years ago, and the wine becomes his actual blood. They then eat the bread/flesh, and the priest drinks the wine/blood; thinking this is real flesh and blood. You know this is crazy.

UFO cults/conspiracies who believe the earth has been visited by alien races, some even thinking the planet is run by reptilians, and our illuminati overlords are shape shifters. You also know this is crazy.

If you could "step out" of your muslim bubble and view the belief system as an outsider, you would also see it is crazy and the followers as mentally ill. This is the nature of faith.

MUQ - I see you ignore my comments as usual. The truth is that religion is a mental illness. You are mentally ill. To insist invisible friends are real and to be a god-botherer on an Atheism forum is proof of this. Sorry to break the news to you.

Ok.But tell me whether the qualities of a true prophet that you've mentioned so far were known to the people who lived before Muhammad?

Qualities of a True Prophet of God:
N: Thirteenth Quality: Prophesy:
Some Prophets foretell Future Events:
Prophets receive their information directly from the Most Reliable source of all, i.e. God Almighty, Who gives them some insight about some future events. Prophets tell them to their followers, these are called Prophesies.
A prophesy from a Prophet’s lip is different from the “Guess work and logical conclusions” which wise and knowledgeable people or Magicians and Soothsayers and Astrologers say.
A prophesy from True Prophet of God is always fulfilled, while most of the prophesies and predictions from these wise men and soothsayers and magicians go wrong.
Prophesies in reality are word representations of a future event and they are never told with exact details. A few important hints and signs are given and when the event comes to pass, people relate it to prophesy made by the prophets.
A prophesy made by a prophet could be fulfilled during his life time, within a short time or fulfilled after many centuries so to say.
When a particular prophesy shall be fulfilled is derived from the wordings and hints given, there could be differences and scholars might disagree on their exact fulfillment.
N1: Making Prophesy is not an essential condition of a Prophet:
It is not a must that every prophet must make Prophesies. There could be prophets who have not made any prophesy. It has no status on their status or position of Prophethood.
N2. Sometime a prophet might make prophesy about advent of another prophet:
It could happen that some prophets, from the knowledge they receive from God, might make prediction about some other prophet that is to come into the world.
Usually such predictions are about some Major Prophets that would change the course of human history. The exact details about time and detailed qualities are however not mentioned, but sufficient hints are given, using which people with knowledge can identify the prophet when he appears into the world.
All major prophets have told their followers about the Last and Final prophet of God that would come into the world.
PS:
Please remember that my last sentence is speculative and it is better if we just list it and discuss it in detail, when we discuss names of the prophets. If someone objects, I can expunge this last sentence.
Would you give evidences to support your claim that prophets really did make predictions of events that happened and/or seem to be imminent and probable in future?

I am waiting for you to finnish you list,, to date you have offered nothing in your posts that would show your prophet to be any thing other than a clever control freak among simple people.

I didn't ask a question F S did,,, and as usual you failed to answer,, this tends to prove that you don't know, why not just admit it.

Why would I change my name ? what are you talking about ? or is this just another of your attempts to avoid questions ?

I support profits.

In the mean time, I prophecise within the next week, or a hundred years.

A tidal wave.

A volcanic eruption.

People starving.

Yet another war.

The collapse of a powerfull nation.

The rise to power of a new nation.

Yet another financial boom, followed by another crash.

Another dictator.

Rape and pillage.

A cure for cancer.

I will add to these prophecys through out my life,, and will amend them if circumstances require me to do so.

Those of you who wish to survive,, look to your creator through me,, I promise I will send you somewhere nice,, those of you who ignore me,, well don't come crying to me.

I think that just about sums things up for now.

I answer pertinent questions and not every question, you should learn the decencies of discussion and ask pertinent questions.

I have not mentioned any names yet , so you should also not name any person, till the time comes.

Replacing part shall come AFTER we know the definition of Atheism, will it not?

Why? Do you want him to lie to you? He won't create a definition that suits you, either.

We already know the correct definition, and so do you.

Your a control freak, just like your prophet.

Your code is,,, Don't do as I do, do as I say.

When questioned it becomes,,, Because I said so.

You are clearly beyond help with no clue as to how a discusion works.
