Who Is Allah?

There are 20 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?”

Your posts are no difficult to understand, but the way you set your posts is useless, and after talking with Shamma as well as other Christians you have solved nothing. The same gooes for the Christians with Muslims.

Do you really think that a Muslim that make affermations to Christians like that of Yeshua was not god or savior have any positive feedback to Christians? Of course not. Why is it hard for you to grasp it?

They say Yeshua was entirely divine and entirely human. Then your point shouldn't be that it's absurd, but rather to prove if the Nazarene is god, then he's omniscient. If he omniscient then you can bring verses from Gospels were Yeshua appeared to be clueless. Yet you proved he's not god not but making useless affermations but by bringing their proof against their belief.

Through my experience I saw that at the best they won't answer you at all, at the worst they will keeping believing to what they believed. That is because they have faith.

At the end of the day, all believers are the same, not matter what you show, hardly they will change their minds. That goes for Muslims as well. In fact I consider all of you to be different faces of the same thing.

This is why I suggested to stop to criticize one another and each of you should focus of the flaws that its own religious book has, which is more constructive and productive, if you are a free thinker rather than being a ignorant bigot, meant in general, trying to "evangelize" the other.
So, instead of setting up your post in this manner, why don't you go, sit at the fence and keep quiet?

We are not evangelizing here. Shamma, who has an absurd God, is.

Rabbee,
Do you mean we will have a Couple united in naked flesh as God?
rabbee: TheTwo United in OneFlesh, is the first coming of Adam. and in the second coming, are seperated. this does not ever change, for this world. whether you claim to be here, in TheTorah or not. your not being here in TheTorah, does not give G-D cause to alter the basic story.

rabbee: i do not consider shamma's ideas of g-d, any more absurd than yours. you cannot expect all you idolators, of other new testament g-ds to have the same g-d. any more than the new testament tanach g-d, to be the same as TheG-D of Only TheTorah here and now still actually in IT.

In the second coming they are separated? Do you mean you and her have divorced, rabbee?

I agree. Shamma is the one trying to impose his fantasy belief system on others. It is a false equivalence to consider your side or my side as equal in motives.

However, Scholar does make a valid point. It is kind of fruitless to argue religion with a fruitcake.

But I dont see BMZ spamming anybody. I see him reacting to the nonsense. Whether that is a worthwhile endeavor is arguable, I agree. But there is a world of difference in motive.

One who says the Christian god is absurd, without neither reflect that a god like Allah is absurd, isn't it another nonsense?

I see Shamma attacking Islam and defending his religion, but I also see bmz attacking Christianity and defending his religion. Who's better between the two, when both trying to prove their religion is the right one, while that of the other is silly, absurd or violent?

And if I really have to say all, bmz is searching people like Shamma, to give his saying about Christianity, and I add people like Shamma wishes to debate with Muslims about Islam. If I recollect correctly one time he (bmz) has said to have been kicked out from a forum after debating, guess with who? Christians.

rabbee: and i would not worry about the ones, who are not so subtle about it. but i would worry more, about the proselycizers who are so subtle you cannot detect it. everyone is selling something, for allegedly free advice. but you had better know, the price and cost of all that free advice.

Depends who defines absurdity. BMZ posits the existence of ALLAH via faith and then focuses on the illogic of Shammas model. BMZ's Allah isnt absurd if you agree with the premise. BMZ's model is simple, one God. Shamma, OTOH, wraps his model up in convolutions and revolutions. BMZ has the cleaner approach.

Your point about their dance to the death is acknowledged.

rabbee: and claiming that your fantacy beliefs, are better than anyone elses fantacy beliefs. is still called, hypocricy.

when fantacy believers, cannot even detect their own fantacizing. and can only detect, some one elses fantacy, that is not true to their fantacy.
