Richard Dawkins - God is evil, pedophilesa not so bad

Sep 14, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Examiner.com

"The God of the Qur'an is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.

Your position contains a huge assumption that at some point there was nothing. The law of conservation of mass teaches us that mass cannot be created or destroyed. There has never been an observed case of mass being created.
Always-existing mass is as probable as an always existing creator, actually, it is more probable because there is proof of mass existing, but no proof of the creator. An explanation which draws on observable, testable science is inherently more credible than explanations involving magical men in the sky performing supernatural acts.
Ok,l get the message that you believe in Mass, rocks and chemicals existing without any way of being made or coming about but you don't believe in God, yet, it is said that people are also made up of chemicals and particles that come from outer space. We, who believe that God created mankind in His Image and the Universe, must believe even more, that God created us, as we are part of the Universe as science confirms this to be the case too!

Well, you are stating your belief, but you haven't cited any scientific evidence that supports those beliefs. Merely making the bald assertion that science confirms your belief, is no proof that it actually does, even if you do end the sentence with an exclamation point. That something is said emphatically is no proof that it is true. Unless you are just stating that humans are part of the universe, a stunningly obvious observation we can all agree on.

Did you see the Quran verse which falsely claims the sperm comes from ribs and backbone?
Quran 86:5-7
"Now let man but think from what he is created! He is created from a drop emitted - Proceeding from between the backbone and the ribs:"
and where does the sperm come from ?!!

l see the Universe and the World as proof, but that is personal to me and is, of course, not scientific. I cannot prove anything, but there are plenty of other people who believe in God too! I know religion is a taught belief, and you as an agnostic or atheist, could say that we have all been brainwashed. I however, know that l was not brainwashed, as l was kept away from religion and because l was a believer in God, l was sad that l was in a World where God was not known, until the day l went to school for the first time, and the class was gathered for a short prayer at the morning assembly. I was incredibly happy, rejoicing that l had not been put or born into the wrong place, because other people knew God too, in this World. As l said in my first or second post, my family were athiests, and we lived in a remote area and there was no person who had access to me to teach me about God. I was just born believing in Him. I cannot prove it, so l guess you will not believe me. Thanks for reading my postings.

So far themodern science found out from testicles.

http://www.ask.com/question/where-does-sperm-...

Sperm comes from semen, a male reproductive fluid produced in the testicles. Semen refers to a white or grey fluid that is discharged from the male urethra (tube in the penis) on ejaculation. The main function of semen is purely for reproduction.

However greek physicians around and right before Muhammad's time believed sperm comes from ribs area. If you want I can find out that information as well for your reference. That theory was later disproved and tossed in around nineth century I believe.

Well, whatever that means, perhaps you are too polite to say. I think that God is the Master of Physics, but it's just a thought. Every breath you are allowed to take comes from God. Every day that you live comes from God. Everything that is good comes from God. The water you drink comes from God. The food you eat comes from God. The love that you give and receive comes from God. The clothes you wear, the money you earn, the happiness you feel, the good health that you enjoy. God gives and He is gracious, for even to the disbelieving He gives these things. God is merciful. There is not a person on this Earth that can prove God does not exist. Who can prove God does not exist?

What is the purpose of miscarriage, cot death, childhood leukaemia?

I know there is no all powerful compassionate god because we have evidence of avoidable suffering.

Maybe there is some god that is very good at hiding but it is nothing that requires worship.

Sperm comes from semen, a male reproductive fluid produced in the testicles. Semen refers to a white or grey fluid that is discharged from the male urethra (tube in the penis) on ejaculation. The main function of semen is purely for reproduction.
Semen DOES NOT COME from the testicles, period! It is neither produced in the testicles, nor does it come from the testicles during the time of coitus!

And that is a scientific fact! Thirteen centuries ago even the scientific community thought that semen is produced in the testicles. A pity! Mr. Shamoum thinks so even today.

The semen contains many things. Between 95 to 98% of it consists of fructose, prostaglandin hormones, metal and salt ions, lipids, steroid hormones, enzymes, basic amines, and amino acids. All those are produced from the glands located in abdomen. Between 2 to 5% of it consists of the sperms produced in the testicles.

Does the Quran say the semen is produced in the kidneys?

Absolutely not!

It says simply that man is created from the liquid that is ejaculated. During coitus that liquid springs from the abdomen (“between the ribcage and the spine”). That is a scientific fact!

1400 years ago, even doctors thought semen springs from the testicles during coitus. They were wrong of course! Recent discoveries have proven them wrong!

Semen is stored in vesicles that lie in the abdomen. From there it is ejaculated during coitus. Lay people still think that the ejaculate comes from the testicles.

The Quran does not say where semen is produced. Just where it comes from during coitus!

In fact, if the Quran had said that the semen is produced in the abdomen,(“between the ribcage and the spine”), and not the testicles, it would still be accurate. At least 95 to 98% accurate! Only 2-5% of the semen is contributed by the testicles. The rest is produced in the glands located in the pelvic cavity.

But the Quran does not say where the semen is produced, because the Quran is not 98% accurate. It is 100% ACCURATE!

What does the Quran really say?

Question: What is it that man is created from? Answer:

(He is) created from the surging fluid! 87:6

The Exact Arabic words are just four:“Khuliqa minm Maain Daafiq”

Khuliqa = created ; Minm = from

Maain = liquid, fluid, juice, water ; Daafiq = anything that flows out, gushes out, pours out, wells out, sheds.(From the Hans Wehr Arabic to English Dictionary)

The Standard Arabic to Arabic dictionaries also mention: anything that surges or bounces. For instance a “daafiq” ball would be a “bouncing ball”

“Maain Daafiq” is a surging fluid, gushing water, the liquid that pours out, or any combination of the words for “maain” and “daafiq” mentioned above.

Famous translators have rendered these four words as:

“Created from a drop emitted”(Yusuf Ali).“Created from a gushing fluid”(Pickthal).“Water pouring forth”(Shakir).“Created from a fluid poured forth”(Zafraullah khan).“Spurt of water”(Hamidullah).

Arabic speakers can really appreciate the beauty of these four words!

The Quran does not use the word ‘sperm’, nor the word ‘semen’, nor does it say anything about the production of semen or sperm.

The emphasis is clearly on the word ‘daafiq’, the surging, the welling out, the pouring forth, the shedding, and the flowing out of the fluid.

Simply put, it is the ejaculate that fertilizes. And that is the simple truth. The simple scientific truth!
