Who Is Allah?

Who Is Allah?

There are 230845 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?”

Be careful with your warnings, you can be easily label as Islamophobic. I knew some Muslims and am not scared to be killed by them.
Evil messages such as 9:29 only works in the mind of gullible people.

Non "Christians" please BEWARE of a NUTCASE who tells you to pluck your eye out:

Matthew 18:9
..And if your eye causes you to stumble, GOUGE IT OUT and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fire of hell...

Trinity was not mentioned or promoted by Jesus.
"Christianity" was never mentioned by Jesus!!

So, devotion to El-Jesus and to Allah-Rasool hasn't translated into intelligence that's high enough to design and experiment with high energy physics.

Very true, Junior.
There is one very important point, which the Church fathers saw and took immediate action to butcher the Hebrew Scriptures.
And that was Peter after visiting the unoccupied tomb, went home wondering what had happened? That is when the digging started, following by stealing and forging the scripture, only to be called the Old Testament.
But Misquoting Jesus aka the New Testament took about 600 plus years.
Salaamz O wonderous wazeer. I have always been impressed with your natural inclination towards civilized candor,and do appreciate your responses. Here,s another pointed fact that ALLAH never sanction'd; C 140 A.D. a monk named Marcion of Rome begins teaching of two gods(this may be the first authorized use of the term Father in reference to the Almighty),ABBA the kind and loveing Father-God,vs Yahweh The cruel dessert God.During his appointed tasks of writeing scripture he keeps only 10 letters from Paul,2/3rds of luke,and allows his anti semetic side to overcome logic by attempting to delete any and all references to jesus,s Jewishness! Fortunately the pope of the times intervenes,confiscates all Marcions writeings and forces the mainstream church to decide on a core-canon. Another "banner" example of the misled trying to mislead.LOL! CheerZ

JOEL,

What happened to your sister Tina? How did she die? Is she now in one or more "vital hells?"

How does it feel to have been abandoned by your "Master?" Have you successfully warded off his attempts to penetrate your "aura," so far?

And your boy didn't mangle the Jewish texts? Why didn't the Jews of HIS TIME accept his testimony? Could it be because they knew that he was completely full of shit?

Khadija---How did she(Tina) die?

HughBe--- Is she really dead?

Khadija---How does it feel to have been abandoned by your "Master?"

HughBe--- My guess is liberating.

Khadija-- Have you successfully warded off his attempts to penetrate your... so far?

HughBe--- My guess is that it would be welcomed by Joel.

If you talk of evidence about scriptural personalities, then, well what proof exists about billions of people who existed on earth since the dawn of human civilization stretching back countless millennia?
What evidence is there that the universe sprung into existence from a qm vacuum/singularity or that insentient matter somehow manifested sentience?
So, don't overstretch your petty rational limits.
Your only line of analysis here is putting up silly questions based on grammatical errors, literal contradictions and asking for physical proof which are the hallmarks of the braindead or inferior persons.
I have not read a single deeply thought-provoking post or a profound line from you.
As for spiritual revelations of these scriptural personalities, well, the narrow human range of consciousness is no judge of the dormant and hidden subtler degrees of consciousness with their concomitant energy contents. These things are better experienced and if there exists a need to demonstrate them then it's left to the seer if he wishes to manifest the paranormal power in body or on the surrounding phenomena in full public view.
..........
"Consciousness is usually identified with mind, but mental consciousness is only the human range which no more exhausts all the possible ranges of consciousness than human sight exhausts all the gradations of color or human hearing all the gradations of sound — for there is much above or below that is to man invisible and inaudible. So there are ranges of consciousness above and below the human range, with which the normal human [consciousness] has no contact and they seem to it unconscious...."
- Sri Aurobindo, The Life Divine, p.233.
What Sri says is of no interest to me. That 21st century charlatan Deepak Chopra talks a lot as well. I am a man of evidence and not faith. Its about time people stood up to the deception and use of faith. If people are unable to provide evidence, then they should shutup. There are no cogent grounds for believing in any those Abrahamic doctrines or characters. Ban and avoidance is the first thing imposed by insecure minds on facts defying religion. The insincerity of looking for confirming explanations without a genuine basis, instead of seeking truth, is the certainty of frailty in beliefs.

Thirty centuries, from the earliest texts of the OT to the present day, teach us that the assertion of one God, violent, jealous, quarrlesome, hot-headed, intolerant, and bellicose, has generated more hate, bloodshed, death, and brutality than it has peace. These scam artists calling themselves prophets have accomplished nothing other than prey on the credulous masses.....piss on them!!

You know, it isn't a question of what "God" orders us to do, but of why "we" obey, ESPECIALLY when obeying "God" means murdering people who don't believe the latest and FINAL "revelation."

What is it about human NOT HAVING ACTUAL PROOF that makes us so lethal to each other?

We are all born without beliefs. The mind of the child is hijacked by their guardians as it was not pre-installed with beliefs by any god. And if an opinion contrary to your own makes you angry, that is a sign that you are sub-consciously aware of having no good reason for thinking as you do.

Having said that, humans have a tendency to conform to whatever group they belong to, even if those views are unfounded and irrational. Religion lies to children & the uneducated and that is reprehensible. Fear is one of the main sources of superstition and main source of cruelty.....fear of the unknown. Religion divides people and that is why it is lethal.

I disagree. When I was born I was under attack by my mother's blood. I was what they called then, "an Rh baby." See:http://en.wikipedia.org/wi ki/Rh_disease I remembered this experience that required a complete blood transfusion. It became a recurring nightmare that persisted until I was 3 years old or so, of me, beholding an infinite field, and being savagely attacked by "things" that I can't describe. The attack would pause...and then resume with the same ferocity. My parents would tell me later that they could NOT waken me from this state of terror that I endured. Only much later would I DEDUCE that this had to entirely with my birth experience, and the transfusion. Maybe I'm wrong, but I doubt it.

IOW, I remembered being born, and I BELIEVED in what I "saw."
