Who Is Allah?

Who Is Allah?

There are 252825 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?”

Call G-d what you will. Give G-d whatever attributes you want because each culture can't get it's arms around a Deity that isn't "man-like". Still, why can't this "Absolute" speak to all in ways that each can understand and accept?
G-d is an inferior anthropopathic formation, a being of a particular plane of the manifestation.

The absolute is the basis or the totality and is beyond existence and beyond non-existence, beyond attribution and beyond non-attribution, beyond personality and beyond non-personality, beyond mutability and beyond immutability and so on. It is a unified field of consciousness and energy that in partial manifestation gives rise to the graduated universe and to the various archetypal beings of the various planes each calling itself G-d and warning its followers not to worship other Gods (rival beings).

This is the pathetic level of religions.

As far as I am aware there isnt even any hard evidence that Jesus could read. Much of Judaism at that time was oral anyhow.
That's your opinion, which is no better than mine. It really does not matter if Jesus could write, He got His message out. Okay, now you will say He didn't. You can argue on and on and prove nothing. I accept the testimony of Jesus' disciples and their disciples down to their present day disciples: bishops of the Catholic Church.

We are not speaking of "inner" peace.
No, Uncle Eric.

I didn't refer to inner or to outer peace.

I simply asked you to define peace in terms of its causal mechanism.

What is peace?

After all, if the Deity is the "Absolute", that Deity can do all. The Deity can break thru the barriers knowing what's necessary.
Once the absolute manifests the universes, it stands back and permits the innate causal laws to have their play.

Each presiding being of a plane of the universe does its bit to help in the functioning of the cosmos and as said earlier the universe this time around is based on an evolutionary pattern - with each emergence refining the force fields of the terrestrial nature and beyond.

More, later.

An absence of hostility

An absence of illness (you speak of this all the time)

Bringing all to a universal understanding of the "Absolute".

Timing on the large scale is inconsequential. One you resolve an absence of hostility, the rest falls into place. The mine is better than yours no longer applies. It's all the "Absolute's".
Minor results.

What degree of consciousness and energy would bring these minor effects on the plane of matter into existence?

With the end of hostilities nothing much would fall into place.

What do you mean by hostilities? Human conflicts? LOL. Humans are puppets in the hands of certain adverse universal forces of the vital plane.

BTW, the absolute is very different from what people call G-d or God.

bmz said Jesus could not write, he didn't say he couldnÂ’t write in a particular language. If the scroll was in Hebrew then we can say Jesus could write in at least Hebrew. There is also a record of Jesus writing in the sand when they wanted to stone the woman caught in adulatory.
That story is absurd and a forgery.

What did he write on the sand? Any clue? He was just fiddling with a stick.

Hey Joel, good to see your kicking Muslim arses here.

I'm with you on that one, I'm also pleased to see you believe in some kind of Universal force. That can only be a good thing, it shows me your onto something. As we say "seek and you shall find".

Let me encourage you to continue seeking, I know you will find all the answers if you seek diligently.

In the meantime, keep attacking these Muslim Infidels. They are our enemies, see we may disagree on certain issues but we don't resort to terrorism like the bloody Muslim Bastards do.

We in the Christian West should declare a Jihad on Muslims, we shouldn't wait for them to commit the next 9/11. I reckon we should attack first and ask questions later.

I'm looking for Martyrs, if you know any disgruntled Muslims send them to me. I have plenty of jobs available lol.

HughBe--- Thanks for reminding me that you are a Jew, Joel.

Don't deny it. You have met the man-made criterion of the Pharaohs i.e. having a Jewish mother meaning Frijoles plus you have a Jewish uncle meaning Eric.

I guess you never knew that the Torah itself was originally conveyed orally. Thats why certain sections rhyme or otherwise have poetic rhythm - it was a mnemomic device.

Of course you would never notice that being that you are ILLITERATE in Hebrew.

Its not opinion that there is no physical evidence. It is fact.
