Who Is Allah?

There are 256485 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?”

You think because you say it, it makes it true.
The present day Catholic Church leaders have their authority directly from the apostles through Apostolic Succession. Where did mohammad get his authority? he had no authority from anyone. When did God tell mohammad he was his prophet? Did he hear it from some spirit that some women told him was Gabriel?
Catholic Church was established with the support of pagans and pagan philosophers, Paul.

What nonsense is this Apostolic Succession? Such terms are junk and stuff coined by the minions of Satan.

Haven't you read the Catechism of the RCC, where it says that there was so much confusion that the Church had to coin new terms to explain her ridiculous balderdash? Don't you ever dare try to lie about RCC's Catechism. That junk and stuff is right here with me and I have wasted hours reading the damn lies! There is not a word from Jesus or God in it!

When did God tell Jesus to go and preach? Can you show me that in your NT?

As for Muhammad, God told through Qur'aan that he was the Messenger of God.

Christians believe in only one God, so get your story straight. Do you think lying about the Holy Trinity, God, that you can fool people into islam? islam has nothing to offer but the enslavement of one's mind to imagination of what an uneducated 7th century war lord would do. Your imams sit around in a circle trying to guess what the 7th century war lord would do and then impose a fatwa on the muslim community that accept them as some sort of authority. Now where did they get their authority? They can't speak for God for according to them mohammad was the last prophet.
Christians say that the believe in only one God but they butcher that God into three co-equal and distinct persons. This butchery of God, was NOT taught and preached by Jesus. So, cut that out, please.

3rd-6th Century idiots and ignorant fools read the confounding garbage in John and through John, came up with the absurd Trinity or the Triune God.

Excerpt From UNCOMMON WISDOM By FRITJOF CAPRA:

Page 97:

R D Laing in no way denied the existence of mental illness. But he insisted that, in order to understand a patient, the psychiatrist had to understand him in the context of his relations with other human beings, which included very centrally the relationship between the patient and psychiatrist himself. Traditional psychiatry, by contrast, has followed a Cartesian approach in which the patient is isolated from his or her environment - conceptually and physically - and labeled in terms of a well-defined mental disease. Laing emphasized that no one has schizophrenia like having a cold and went on to make the radical assertion that in many of the classic psychiatric texts the very psychopathology projected on to the person called "patient" can clearly be seen manifested in the mentality of the psychiatrist.

QUESTION:

Where lies the flaw in psychiatry/psychiatric methods as described above by Capra?

You steal a car and break the law, no matter how much you repent and are sorry for what you did, you may be sent to jail but your sentence could be commuted if it is your first offence!

Unfortunately, your belief system gets you to the confessional almost daily for repeat offences without any sincerity. Your "god" priest sends you off saying you are forgiven only for you to return the next day!
Such shallow "repeat" repentance has no value!

Our Civil laws are based on God's law in one shape or another.

Dear Skeptic Shamma, please respond to these. Thank you.

Have you ever wondered what your religion was before the "church" forced its will on people about 1700 years ago?

For many thousands of years before that people lived and died
without a Jewish man dying for their sins!

** I have aksed you many questions. While you answer them...

*** You say God is the creator of all human beings. I agree that God is the CREATOR, and Jesus is a CREATION just like all of us.

*** Then you switch on your "guilt" complex stories!!

*** Did you tell Adam to sin? So why are you worried?

*** Who told you Adam's sin lands on your head? Why?
If Adam steals a wallet do you get punished for it?

*** If you didn't tell adam to sin and didn't tell Jesus to die for the sins, then surely they should leave you alone!

** Did you know that Jesus NEVER claimed he came to die for your sins!!! So why are you blindly listening to nutcases?

*** The church gives you the cock and bull story about sin and guilt to extract money and confession from you...They have NO power to absolve anything!

*** God can EASILY forgive sins. There is no need for this PAGAN drama...using HUMAN SACRIFICE, FRESH BLOOD drinking and RAW FLESH eating with a naked pagan dangling from a phallic pole. These are SATANIC, CANNIBALISTIC and vestige from PAGAN FERTILITY RITES!

*** The biggest misconception that is brushed under church carpets is the FACT that PEOPLE still DIE..NOT a SINGLE PERSON SINCE CREATION has ESCAPED DEATH!!!
THEREFORE, the ARRIVAL and DEPARTURE of JESUS has CHANGED NOTHING!
The BIGGEST LIE they PUMPED was "ETERNAL LIFE ON EARTH" soon after the POOR FALL GUY was put to DEATH ON THE CROSS!
NOTHING HAPPENED!!!...
ALL THOSE who BELIEVE in this STUPID DEATH also DIE!!!!!
JESUS NEVER CLAIMED HE CAME to TAKE ON theE SIN of the WORLD.
READ THE GOSPELS...HE CAME ONLY for the JEWS and was NOT generally INTERESTED IN THE WORLD as such!!! LOL
YOU ERRONEOUSLY CLAIM "the penalty of death for sin remained for those that did not believe in Jesus and the redemption works of Jesus on the Cross"
WHAT the HELL do YOU MEAN BY THIS?
YOU DIE, despite your BELIEF in your "JESUS"?
ALL HUMANS DIE ONE DAY irrespective of what they believe!!
WHAT CHANGED FROM the DEATH on the CROSS??? NOTHING!
YOU ARE TALKING RUBBISH!!
PROVE to me that THOSE WHO BELIEVED IN YOUR MANGOD DON'T DIE!

Excerpt From UNCOMMON WISDOM By FRITJOF CAPRA - PART 2:

Page 97

Conventional psychiatry is plagued by a confusion that lies at the very center of the conceptual problems of all modern, scientific medicine: the confusion between disease process and disease origins. Instead of asking why a mental illness occurs, medical researchers try to understand the biological mechanism through which the disease operates. These mechanisms, rather than the true origins, are seen as the causes of the illness. Accordingly, most current psychiatric treatments are limited to suppressing symptoms with psychoactive drugs. Although they have been very successful in doing so, this approach has not helped psychiatrists understand mental illness any better, nor has it allowed their patients to solve the underlying problems.

QUESTION:

What is meant by the biological basis of a mental illness?

Excerpt From UNCOMMON WISDOM By FRITJOF CAPRA - PART 3 - LSD:

Page 100

What is LSD and what is its effect on the human mind and body?

"This is a key question I asked myself for many years," replied Stan Grof. "The search for typical, mandatory pharmacological effects of LSD was an important aspect of my early analytical work on the LSD data.....After analyzing 3000 records from LSD sessions, I have not found a single symptom that would be an absolutely mandatory and invariant component of the LSD experience. The absence of any distinct drug-specific effects and the enormous range of phenomena that occur during these sessions have convinced me that LSD is best understood as a powerful unspecific amplifier, or catalyst, of mental processes, which facilitates the emergence of unconscious material from different levels of the human psyche. The richness and enormous variability of the LSD experience can be explained in this way by the fact that the entire personality of the subject and the structure of his or her unconscious play a decisive role. I realized that rather than studying the specific effects of a psychotic drug on the brain, I would be able to use LSD as a powerful research tool for the exploration of the human mind. When you compare material from consecutive LSD sessions of the same person, it becomes evident that there is a definite continuity, a successive unfolding of deeper and deeper levels of the unconscious. On this inner journey a person may first move through a Freudian phase, then pass through a death-rebirth experience that can be loosely referred to as Rankian, and the advanced sessions of the same person may have a mythological and religious quality that can best be described in Jungian terms. All these psychotherapeutic systems can therefore be useful for certain stages of LSD process."

QUESTIONS:

1) What is the unconscious as compared to the subconscious and the subliminal?

2) Why does a chemical like LSD confer on us these experiences in consciousness?

3) What is at the root of the LSD experiences?

4) What is the mind?

The "holy" RC church that "allegedly" believes in "one god" has butchered that god into many unequal parts (although they claim co-this and co-that!).......

while the "satanic" muslims who "allegedly" believe in "god plus three goddesses"(Astaghfirullah !!) have put all these together to end up with "ONE GOD"!!!!!!!!!!

Joel, the problem with psychiatry and psychiatrist is that they have a measure of understanding the problem through educated analysing/guessing, BUT they lack the divine ability to deal with and bring healing to the inner being, the soul of man. Drugs are their only answer.

Dead religion like Islam, Catholics, Hinduism, etc, also can spot the problem but try by means of force or self-denial to address the issue.

Pseudo-intelectuals like you, JOEL and brainwashed goofs like MUQ and bmz are very wize in their own understanding but truly add no value by their excessive postings. Empty words, empty words, the blind leading the blind with both falling in the ditch!!!!

Incidently, stats show that the highest incidents of SUICIDE among the medical fraternal in the Western world is the psychiatrist, proving the point of him seeing the problem and having no cure.

Muslims are the same - suicide murderers, gang rapists, etc, is their only answer to the inner problem of SIN!

While you guys post so verbosely about the Bible and Jesus, you will continue to walk in darkness. To acknowledge to Jesus that you dont understand anything divine, and ask Him to open your understanding, will give God the permission to enlighten you with truth. Jesus said, "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free."

EVOLUTION OF MATTER OR OF CONSCIOUSNESS?

Evolution means the successive emergences in matter of the involved grades of consciousness with each gradation engineering its unique material form. To imagine that sentience emerged from insentient chemicals and that life-forms of superior information content evolved from life-forms of inferior information content is outrageously paradoxical and a shocking assault on the human intelligence.
