Who Is Allah?

There are 256398 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?”

Why scientists dismiss 'intelligent design'
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intelligent_desi...
Reaction from the scientific community
The unequivocal consensus in the scientific community is that intelligent design is not science and has no place in a science curriculum.[89] The U.S. National Academy of Sciences has stated that "creationism, intelligent design, and other claims of supernatural intervention in the origin of life or of species are not science because they are not testable by the methods of science."[90] The U.S. National Science Teachers Association and the American Association for the Advancement of Science have termed it pseudoscience.[91] Others in the scientific community have denounced its tactics, accusing the ID movement of manufacturing false attacks against evolution, of engaging in misinformation and misrepresentation about science, and marginalizing those who teach it.[92] More recently, in September 2012, Bill Nye ("The Science Guy") warned that creationist views threaten science education and innovations in The United States.[93][94]
Scientific criticism
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intelligent_desi...
Many scientists have now become dogmatic and condemn ID as the Vatican condemned Galileo. Many new ideas in science are condemned by those into the established science of the time. One thing about science is that it is constantly correcting itself as new evidence becomes available.

Those who first promoted the Intelligent Design theory were scientists so you are wrong about your claim that no scientists support ID. We will learn much about God through this infant science.
They didnt publish in scientific journals. Anyone can speculate. So you are incorrect.

I didnt even have to go to the refernces. Read this section.

It basically says that the tests are controversial and therefore the results are inconclusive. Not that anything was proved. There is a BIG difference between those two positions.

You obviously didnt and probably have NO interest in reading the two articles I posted.

the criticism is that:
1) IT isnt amenable to the scientific METHOD
2) IT is dogma not theory
3) the internal logic suffers from basic philosophical logicla fallacies such as Argument from Ignorance

etc etc

When ignorant people wish to win an arguement all they can do is shout that the bible has been corrupted. We christians don't try an win the arguement by claiming the koran is corrupt. Where in the Koran does it state the Bible was corrupted? Is it more likely that all the writings of the prophets have been corrupted as muslims say, or is it more likely that the one prophet call Mo is just a false prophet, whose writtings just don't fit with all the other true prophets? Showing that he is the odd one out.

To discover corruption and forgeries in the Christian Bible, please read the 5-Star forgery known as Hebrews about Homer's Jebus.

As in ID never made it through the peer-preview process.
And never will.

It's just another god of the gaps promotion.
So creationist pointing out what they think is not resolved.
Nowadays it's about flagging what they have not read.

It's hard to keep up anyway, but they lag about 20 years behind.

But they either state god is present in nature, and that as such is perfectly organised.(MUQ looking out of the window).
Followed by stating that evolution is flawed for it cannot reproduce the same as nature.(wrong) But which would be proof of the validity of evolution.
But that ID is the proof that god did it.
So god tinkering with nature by means of evolution is...????
(grin sorry...playing with himself.)

I stopped trying to follow their logic a while back.
Especially since someone introduced the fall and eve.

How about 'm dinosaurs in the garden...

Iran is a developing nation. It is a great credit to develop while remaining under sanctions by countries, who have carried out genocides on a slightly lower scale.

What genocides has Iran carried out?

Backward nations cannot send rockets into space. Tell me how has Iran hurt you?

The fact remains the Shroud of Turin remains an enigma to the most advance science that we now have. The science is pointing towards the image being created by some unknown process; could it be a miracles process; time will tell.

Design in the universe must be investigate using the scientific method. ID is just beginning to use the scientific method to investigate this design. The dogmatic scientist try to prevent this investigation at all cost for fear it may prove there is a God.

Fufilled Bible prophecy is the proof that the bible is true, and that its Gods Word. What has your prophet predicted that has come to pass?
Read this and put you ignorance to rest. Only God can predict tne future and his Bible is True:

It's a backward country in that its people are starving, they arrest people for being Christian out of fear of Jesus the Christ, they hang homosexuals, they stone women. It is a backward country for sure.

Wow they sent a monkey 75 miles into space! Not much of an achievment. This launch has not been confirmed by the West and the West will not take iran's word for it. I wonder why? Maybe it those photoshopped missle pictures they put out?

Muslims call Mo at prophet but just what future events, did Mo predict, which have come to pass?
The Bible has a track record of over 2000 fulfiled prophecies, which proves that its God's Word.
