Who Is Allah?

There are 225187 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?”

May be the earth itself did not separated from sun (as is the usual belief) composition of earth is different from that of sun.
Sun is mostly hydrogen, helium and carbon, while on earth these things are not that abundant.
May be earth came from some another system and was "captured by Sun's gravitational field" to become its planet?
The more you research, the more truth shall come out and prove how little we know of these matters.
Allah knows Best.
rabbee: everytime G-D made the physical earth and physical universe. THEY/BOTH have made it exactly, the way THEY have said it in TheTorah. and have previously done this, for thousands and thousands of third or fourth times. so the apparent age, is not the same as actual age of the earth and universe. so you need to be carfull of paralax error, in calculating earths present age. since it is a lot younger again, than you have been misled to think.

People; who believe in the absurdity and idiocy that God has a son and that God is triune, being dishonest themselves think that others, who do not believe in their junk and stuff; are dishonest.

When have you ever been honest about your own absurd scripture and your false and crooked belief system?

You do have an absurd book called the Book of Revelation. Right? Was that absurd revelation given to John in the form of a book?

There is no separation of church and State in Islam.
Not every thing Muhammad did was approved by Allah/God.
Those verses are Muhammad's own words and feelings he felt towards the infidels.
God punished Israel many times in the OT for going to war that God did not approve of.
rabbee: well that does not explain why G-D, is punishing muslems a lot more than alleged as jews today.

and i cannot see in TheTorah, where G-D approved of any quran in TheTorah. so you need to know the difference in authorizing something and approving of something.

and there is something wrong about muhammed's own words, with muhammed's name not actually being in TheBook of Life. i have TheBook of Life, and muhammed's name ain't in IT. if muhammed words were true to G-D, his name would be in TheBook of life.

there is somthing drasticly wrong with muslemanity, when Eeshmael's name is in TheBook of Life, and none of your or muhammed's are in there. i can't even find, any of the alleged as apostile's names in IT either. TheOnly Name that is in there, for this same peroid of time again is Adam - adam.

The koran says it's a book. You say it's a recital. Which is it? When did allah hand out this book to mohammad? Wait, allah never had any contact with mohammad, so when did the spirit hand the koran, book, to mohammad?

Like the Quran?

BTW, the world's greatest scientists - Planck, Heisenberg, Bohr, Einstein, Bohm, Tesla and others - have always referred to the Upanishads for clues and inspiration since their expositions are so rational and based on reals like consciousness, energy and matter and the mechanism is based on realities like monism, causation, conservation and systems theory and besides they never preach rot like creation from nothing, worship of a petty being, bigotry, incest, hypogamy, war, conversion or blood curdling rituals.

Welcome, bro

The problem with polemic evangelical fools and other ignorant fools is that they discuss Qur'aan with us through English translations, while they discuss their own stuff through poor translations in English, which were translated from crude Greek, unfit for Scriptures. And the Greek could never capture the true meanings of Hebrew and Aramaic.

Thus, one sees so many absurdities in the Christian Bible.

Another example: "Kutiba alaikumus-siamo" meaning "Fasting has been ordained for you" shares the same root of kitaab. Only a fool will say "the book of fasting". lol!

Next, you will hear "the Book of fighting". lol!

MIND-MATTER:

Quantum mysticism is a term that has been used to refer to a set of metaphysical beliefs and associated practices that seek to relate consciousness to the ideas of quantum mechanics and its interpretations. The term originally emerged from the founders of quantum theory in the early twentieth century as they debated the interpretations and implications of their nascent theories, which would later evolve into quantum mechanics, and later after World War II, with publications such as Schrödinger's and Eugene Wigner’s 1961 paper.

WERNER HEISENBERG & VEDANTA:

After listening to the experiential verse of Adi Shankara on the nature of the undifferntiated absolute in the melodious voice of the poet Rabindranath Tagore in Calcutta, India, Heisenberg found a new direction for his research. After returning from India, impressed by the Advaita philosophy (nondualism), he postulated the Principle of Uncertainty.

After many years, on 11th April, 1972, in the city of Munich in Germany, when the famous physicist Fritjof Capra visited him, Heisenberg narrated many of his experiences and said – the scientifc spirituality, pioneered by India is the need of the present Era.

This inspiration has provided the basis for the historical creation of the masterpiece “The Tao of Physics”, by Fritjof Capra.

In this connection Capra met Werner Heisenberg again in the year 1974 and showed him the manuscript of his book. Heisenberg was delighted to see that and said –“After all, the scientific study and exposition of spirituality has begun !” After that in November 1975 Fritjof Capra sent him the first copy of the published book “The Tao of Physics”. Heisenberg read that book but could not write his comments as he died before he could do it.

A few days before his death Heisenberg mentioned to one of his friends:

“The scientists of the world should study the spiritualists of India, especially Swami Vivekananda. He is such a spiritual sage of India, whose thoughts can become the basis of modern scientific research.”

SCHRODINGER'S CAT & VEDANTA:

It is obvious that Schrödinger changed his mind about a wave aspect to electrons between 1923 and 1926.

There is some controversy about how Schrödinger actually arrived at Wave Mechanics, but in the Fall of 1925, presumably as he was building his theory, he wrote an essay, "Seek for the Road", which may provide some clues.

(Reference: My View of the World, Cambridge, 1964).

You may recall the Schrödinger's Cat paradox, which was first published in its "scientific form" in 1935 in Zeitschrift der Physick. However in his 1925 essay, he recounts an ancient Sankhya Hindu paradox that, jazzed up with some technology, became the cat paradox. In that original form the paradox was cast in the form of two people, one looking at a garden, the other in a dark room. The modern equivalent would be one person looking in the box to see if the cat is alive or dead, while a second person waits out in the hall. In this modern form the state "collapses" for the first person while it does not collapse for the second person.

In 1925 Schrõdinger resolved that paradox the way the Vedantists did:- He asserted that all consciousness is one.

As he wrote:

"But it is quite easy to express the solution in words, thus: the plurality [of viewpoints] that we perceive is only an appearance; it is not real. Vedantic philosophy, in which this is a fundamental dogma, has sought to clarify it by a number of analogies, one of the most attractive being the many-faceted crystal which, while showing hundreds of little pictures of what is in reality a single existent object, does not really multiply the object."

Here is another fragment of that essay:

"... you may suddenly come to see, in a flash, the profound rightness of the basic conviction of Vedanta:... knowledge, feeling and choice are essentially eternal and unchangeable and numerically one in all men, nay in all sensitive beings."

Finally, Schrödinger himself makes an interesting analogy between Vedantic philosophy and modern physics:

"If finally we look back at that idea of Mach [that `the universe is not twice given'], we shall realize that it comes as near to the orthodox dogma of the Upanishads as it could possibly do without stating it expressis verbis. The external world and consciousness are one and the same thing."

What role has the sick Quran that preaches the BS of creationism played in the march of civilization? None, none, at all. LOL.

Really?

I am quite familiar with the work of those scientists and never read such a thing.

Can you quote from the various horse mouths (names of their books chapters, or letters) where they said so?

VEDANTA-BUDDHISM & QUANTUM MECHANICS:

Despite their radically different worldview, shortly after their publication it was shown that Matrix Mechanics and Wave Mechanics are mathematically identical. In fact, Schrödinger was one of the people who did the proof.

Despite their formal equivalence, there seems to be more than just logic involved in the interpretation of the mathematics.

A) Heisenberg wrote:

"The more I ponder the physical part of Schrðdinger's theory, the more disgusting it appears to me."

B) Schrödinger wrote:

"If one has to stick to this damned quantum jumping, then I regret ever having been involved in this thing."

In the 5th century of the current era, there was a bitter argument in India between the Sankhya Hindus and the Buddhists about the nature of Universal Flux. Debates were held which lasted for days, and would attract huge crowds.

A) According to the Buddhists:

The phenomena consist of an infinity of discrete moments following one another almost without intervals.... There is no matter at all, flashes of energy follow one another and produce the illusion of stabilized phenomena. The universe is a staccato movement.

B) According to the Hindus:

The phenomena are nothing but waves or fluctuations standing out upon the background of an eternal, all-pervading undifferentiated Matter with which they are identical. The universe represents a legato movement.

Reference: F. Theodor Stcherbatsky, Buddhist Logic, Vol I, pg 83.

Even allowing for the possibility that Schrödinger's Wave Mechanics may have been influenced by Hindu philosophy, as the case appears to be, the parallels between the Buddhist-Hindu argument and the Heisenberg-Schrödinger aesthetic clash are striking.

So, what has that lunatic Muhammad have to say on the nature of the reality? Creation from nothing! Madman. LOL.
