Who Is Allah?

There are 243203 comments on the The Brussels Journal story from Aug 24, 2007, titled Who Is Allah?. In it, The Brussels Journal reports that:

“Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? [...] What does God care what we call him?”

1) Excessive, rampant and persistent inbreeding, incest and hypogamy down the ages is the reason why the Jews are victims of numerous genetic diseases.
2) Besides, serious personality defects can also mutate the physical, vital and psychological force fields encapsulated in the genes leading to mental, emotional and physical disorders.
3) In addition, the incidence of mental diseases and homosexuality/bisexuality is very high among the Jews due to both the above reasons.
3) Finally, from a yogic perspective, most Jews are possessed due to all the above reasons and on account of their perverse religious beliefs centered on demon worship.

I think I might be the only Muslim who doesn't want Christian women to convert to Islam. I have valid reasons. Here they are: they will corrupt our women. Bring skimpy clothing into Islam. Introduce having sex with multiple men into Islam. Introduce having sex on the first date to Muslim women. Turn inslam into a white trailer trash park. Introduce bestiality to Muslim women. Introduce having sex with multiple men at the same time. Introduce having multiple children with multiple men to our beautiful women. Introduce g-string and tiny skirts that reveal butt chicks and vagina to young and impressionable muslim girls. Introduce lesbianism to our women. Introduce alcoholism to Islam. Introduce losing virginity before the age of 15 to complete strangers. Destroy the sanctity of marriage. Destroy our moral fabric. Turn our women into western sluts. Teach our women how to exchange money for sex. Teach our women how to get a wealthy men to marry them, then seek divorce and take half of everything. Teach our women how to abandon their children. Teach our women how to disrespect us. Teach our women how to be the boss of the household and crack the whip. Destroy the rich culture of Islam. Teach our women to sleep around with everything that has a penis. Teach our women how to smoke. Introduce burger king to middle east to fatten our beautiful women. Teach Arab and muslim girls how to rebel against parents. Destroy inslam within in. Turn our mosques into brothels and prostitution training camps like christian churches are. Teach the shaikh how to molest and have sex with young girls and boys like christians priests do. Darn, this is too much. I'm afraid I'll have to stop it here.

BAN ON USURY: MORE ISLAMIC NONSENSE
Similarly, i fail to understand the ban on usury in Islam.
Jesus, the Jew, too, was against usury.
Let's find out if their objections are valid and make sense:
1) If the sale of goods, profit sharing from business enterprise and money made on lease of property are permitted then why can't money be made on money by way of interest by loaning it out to those parties who can afford to pay interest on it?
2) Of course, the poor should not be exploited in the process. Charity should serve the purpose of helping the needy.
3) Ultimately, production of goods, creation of services and purchase of property depend on money.
4) Without money being pumped in, none of these - goods, services, infrastructure, property - can come into existence.
5) If the basis of production of goods, creation of services and purchase of property (land/real estate) is cash or money then why the hesitancy in making money on money loaned out at reasonable interest to parties who can afford it and who can use the money profitably to generate more wealth as in the case of businessmen who take huge loans from financial institutions and use that to further expand their businesses or to generate more wealth?
6) In the ultimate analysis, everything boils down to money.
7) No money = No production of goods and services and no purchase of property to lease out later to interested parties.
8) Even the sale of goods and services and income earned on renting out property is in terms of money. LOL.
CONCLUSION: So, everything begins and ends with money.
So, why the hesitancy is making money on money loaned out at interest?
Another case of flawed Islamic logic.
There goes the ignorant fool again.

You wrote: " 2) Of course, the poor should not be exploited in the process. Charity should serve the purpose of helping the needy."

That is exactly the message of Islam, Fool! Trade is lawful. Usury is not!

And the wealthy should not rip off others.

MUHAMMAD'S MERAJ - DOES IT HAVE A GROSS PHYSICAL SCIENTIFIC EXPLANATION?
1) Meraj or Muhammad's journey into the supraphysical planes (heavens) cannot be explained on the basis of gross physical scientific explanations.
2) Meraj was an ascent into the higher planes of consciousness during trance state with the winged white horse, Buraq, being the vital consciousness-force formation representing the rising kundalini into the Cosmic Mind Plane or to be precise into the Cosmic Illumined Mind Plane - the lowly 7th heaven which is the seat of the minor archetypal being named Allah.
3) To even ask the question whether a mystical experience like the Meraj can be explained in gross physical scientific terms is illogical.
It was a vision, Dunce!

What bullshit is this? "vital consciousness-force formation representing the rising kundalini into the Cosmic Mind Plane or to be precise into the Cosmic Illumined Mind Plan"

POVERTY & PROSPERITY: EVERYTHING BOILS DOWN TO INNATE CAPACITY

1) Even in the midst of sufering, poor infrastructure and insufficient opportunities, all are not beggars.

2) A person with sufficiently developed genetic efficiency will do reasonably well even in underdeveloped economies.

3) There are poor nations on earth but those citizens in these places of backwardness who possess sufficiently developed natural instincts and who use them at the right time and in the right measure will forge ahead of the others with poorer gentic instincts and inborn laziness to earn enough to feed themselves and their families and to save and invest in entrepreneurial oportunities and in this way they steadily grow rich.

4) Success or failure in any field of human activity depends one innate capacity and how one employs his faculties.

INNATE CAPACITIES:

1) One needs well developed capacities for success in any field of human endevor be it business, academics, research, mysticsm, cooking or journalism.

2) Herdity is one prime route of acquiring inborn capacities of the psychological, vital, physical and material kind and besides this our carried over instincts from previous exietnces play a key role in moulding herediarty instincts.

3) Human society is a gradation sinc equality is not the law of nature.

4) Human beings occupy different rungs of the ladder of existence in keeping with their innate capacities.

5) Look for the cause within, not without.

It really reeks of Hitlerism. another ism. He's smoking those Hitler cigarettes. Many very intelligent and capable people, in fact brilliant persons, have been kept down and hurt by society (which also can mean governments and religion.) Not their fault, and God Himself will take vengeance, including on those who promote such false ideas that the downtrodden are inferior. What a stupid statement.

You have fallen victim to the mass media and control mob who wants your money, time, hopes and desires. You lose. Try reading Wilhelm Reich for a change, it might help your personal lack of personality integration disorder. Mr. Reich, I didn't know him, like Beethoven, he might have had a miserable personality, but he sure was on the money when it came to certain things.:-)

ACRID SMELL:
The faculty of smell has opened up further in me with the accompanying micro-vision since a few days and from today morning a pungent or acrid smell is pervading the whole atmosphere. Initially, i thought the acrid smell was confined to my area but later soon realized that the smell was spread out everywhere when i checked other places as well. The vision accompanying this terrible smell is a mass of brownish-black swirls. It's a vital force of decomposition which has either been dislodged from the vital world or it has disintegrated after being pushed out. The supramental descent has dislodged all the asura forces from their vital habitations and this has created a flurry among them and has further intensified the tussle between the descending supramental force and the dislodged adverse vital forces. The smell is choking and the brownish-black swirls that're visible in the subtle atmosphere everywhere are horrible and my eyes are watery and red. Breathing is also not as easy.

Indeed.

I believe that Joel has not received the monthly rentals from the shops, flats and houses at the beginning of this month.

He is now feeling the pinch and feels depressed. Hence the silly post on poverty.

4) We get what you deserve.
5) Our innate capacities and the way we use them will determine how we evolve or devolve and progress or regress over many histories.
6) Be alert and sow good deeds and cultivate the right skills by learning everything the way they are meant to be learnt and hone them and in this way these propitious impressions when learned well and repeated often enough get stamped in the consciousness and infiltrate the genes and get passed on to succeeding generations.
7) We are the architects of our own destiny in keeping with the causal laws.
8) Destiny is controlled by cause and effect.
That is what I want you to do, boy.

Take charge of your life and stop blaming others.

And always preach what you practice.
