Atheist Islamophobia... Again

Apr 9, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Religion Dispatched

Sparked by a Richard Dawkins tweet , in which he drew a parallel between Islamists and Nazis, Nathan Lean recently suggested on Salon.com that the most famous representatives of the new atheism "flirt with" Islamophobia [echoing Chris Stedman's prescient warning to fellow atheists on RD this past August]. As the article explains, Dawkins, Hitchens ... (more)

The debate concerning the existence of God is one of the oldest and most discussed debates in human history. Arguments for and against the existence of God have been proposed by philosophers, theologians, scientists, and others for thousands of years. In philosophical terms, such arguments involve primarily the disciplines of epistemology (the nature and scope of knowledge) and ontology (study of the nature of being, existence, or reality) and also the theory of value, since concepts of perfection are connected to notions of God. A wide variety of arguments exist which can be categorized as metaphysical, logical, empirical, or subjective. The existence of God is subject to lively debate in philosophy,[1] the philosophy of religion, and popular culture.

Of course it is a starting point as is the Britanica.

<quoted text>The bible! That's what the head banging muslims say about the koran and lets not forget the buddhists. All of life's instructions are written in a few of books, but that depends on where you were born as to which one strikes your fancy. Or I should say have it shoved down your throat. It's all a form of brainwashing, or conditioning to act in a certain way. OH, and all of those bopoks written by numerous con men. To repeat myself, there is no god and there never has been one except in the minds of superstitious, afraid of death people, that wish for something better. When your dead..........that's all there is! But if you want to waste your time and money wishing and hopeing for a life after death, then press on, your only fooling yourself.
What if we are right?

your bible has been proven to not be the word of any god. your whole cult is based on proven myths, including the gods they created.
How can a book has a prophecy fulfilled against all odds five thousand years later?

Did you know that the Bible predicted the birth of Israel in one single day AND the hatred toward it from the world?

You have less chances of being correct than us, because the vast majority of the gods proposed by humans don't actually care about being worshiped.

Aw, I hurt your feelings by offering you a perfectly valid recommendation. I should remember that religious people have no self esteem or self worth.

Bible's marriage rules:

** bible-marriage is between one man and his rib-clone
** bible-marriage is between one man and his sisters
** bible-marriage is between one man, his wife, and her concubine
** bible-marriage is between one rapist, and his victim
** bible-marriage is between one war-victor and his captive-slaves
** bible-marriage is between one king and his thousand wives, thousand slaves, and in several cases his boyfriends
** bible-marriage is between one man, his wife and her female slaves
** bible-marriage is between one man and his daughters
** bible-marriage is between one man and his daughters-in-law
** bible-marriage is between one man and his several wives
** bible-marriage is between one man, his wife, and the wife of his dead brother

Funny... no where in the bible is it JUST between a man and a woman....!

Interesting...!

The only reason Israel was formed in the first place was because a bunch of people who wanted to believe in the bible forced it into existence, and it was not "one single day," it took the US a long time to force it into existence, lots of money and threats exchanged. When people make something they think is suppose to happen occur, it's not a prophecy fulfilled, it's delusion causing imbalance in the world.

If there was a thing as divine province your god would have killed all the Arabs, built new housing, given them fields filled with food and said come on in, because I like all of you.

Maybe divine province isn't in the koran, OH I forgot, all the good stuff comes after they die, not while their alive. Stupid fools!!!!
How can a country hated by so many, 6 million killed, founded AFTER America be so successful and have the BEST military?

How can a tiny country like Israel win eight Arab countries (Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Sudan and Algeria) in six days as prophecied in the Bible if not by the hand of a supernatural force?

Prophecy: Old Testament: Leviticus 26:3, 7-8 (Written: around 1400 BC)
"If you follow my decrees and are careful to obey my commands,… You will pursue your enemies, and they will fall by the sword before you. Five of you will chase a hundred, and a hundred of you will chase ten thousand, and your enemies will fall by the sword before you."

Fulfilled: 1948-49, 1967, etc: In Leviticus 26:3, 7-8, the Bible says that the army of Israel would have a supernatural power to prevail during times of conflict, if the people are obedient to the Lord. This Bible passage says that 5 people would be able to chase away 100 people, and that 100 would be able to chase away 10,000. Is there any proof to this incredible claim? Judge for yourself:

Example 1: Within hours of Israel 's declaration of independence in 1948, Egypt , Syria , Jordan , Iraq , and Lebanon invaded Israel . The combined population of those countries was at least 20 million at that time. Israel had fewer than 1 million Jews. Even so, the Jews won the war and expanded the size of Israel by 50 percent.

Example 2: During the War of 1967, Israel attacked the air force bases of the surrounding countries and took control of Jerusalem for the first time in about 2000 years. They also seized additional territory. That war lasted a mere 6 days.

Example 3: On Oct. 6, 1973, Israel was attacked by Egypt and Syria . Other countries later joined the attack. But the Jews were able to push back the attacking armies and occupy land outside of Israel 's borders.

"If you follow my decrees and are careful to obey my commands, You will pursue your enemies, and they will fall by the sword before you. Five of you will chase a hundred, and a hundred of you will chase ten thousand, and your enemies will fall by the sword before you."

71. Jerusalem would become an international problem.

Prophecy: Old Testament: Zechariah 12:1-5 (Written: 520 - 518 BC)
This is the word of the Lord concerning Israel . The Lord, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who forms the spirit of man within him, declares: "I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem . On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves. On that day I will strike every horse with panic and its rider with madness," declares the Lord. "I will keep a watchful eye over the house of Judah , but I will blind all the horses of the nations. Then the leaders of Judah will say in their hearts,`The people of Jerusalem are strong, because the Lord Almighty is their God.'

To be fulfilled: End Times: In Zechariah 12, the prophet said that there would come a time when the surrounding nations would besiege Jerusalem and Judah (the area around Jerusalem ), and that all the nations of the world would gather against Jerusalem , but that God ultimately would save the city and its people. This is widely regarded as an End Time prophecy to be fulfilled in the future.

Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of this prophecy is that it is predicated on Jerusalem being a city of critical interest to the rest of the world. And it just so happens that Jerusalem is the only city in the world that is of interest to the rest of the world.

For Jews, it is their ancient capital, founded by King David about 3000 years ago. Many Arab Moslems, however, believe that the city should be part of an independent state for Palestinian Arabs. The issue of who should control Jerusalem has been a cause of the Arab-Israeli wars during the past century.

And, the conflict between Arabs and Jews has been a primary reason as to why the international community has taken an interest in Jerusalem . In 1947, the United Nations General Assembly approved a plan to carve up the ancient land of Israel into a state for Jews and another for Arabs. This plan would have established Jerusalem as an international city to be governed by the United Nations.

This extremely unusual proposal, suggesting that a city be governed by the United Nations, simply shows the unique status that Jerusalem already has in the world: It is the only city in the world that is of interest to the rest of the world.

Given the history of the city, the volatile conflict between Israel and the surrounding Arab nations, and the unusual interest that the international community has shown in regards to Jerusalem , it seems clear that the groundwork for the future fulfillment of this prophecy is in place.

76. Zechariah foreshadowed modern warfare.

Prophecy: Old Testament: Zechariah 14:12:(Written: 520 – 518 BC)
This is the plague with which the Lord will strike all the nations that fought against Jerusalem : Their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths.

To be fulfilled: End Times: In Zechariah, chapter 14, the prophet says a time will come when nations gather to attack Jerusalem . In Zechariah 14:12, the prophet says the nations that attack Jerusalem will be struck with a "plague" that will cause their flesh to rot while they are still standing. This might be a fitting description for modern warfare if it were described by a person who lived 2500 years ago, as Zechariah did. Chemical weapons are capable of causing rapid deterioration of flesh. And a blast of heat from a nuclear weapon could have a similar affect. Some Bible scholars, however, believe that this plague could refer to a supernatural event from God to protect the Holy Land .

You do not understand the concept of morality!

To control your impulses you must have discipline.

To enjoy life without disciple is not enjoyment but discipline requires sacrifice.
