Who Is Allah?

There are 256611 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?”

MUSINGS ON PHYSICS:
1) The center of mass of a body can be considered to be that point at which the reaction by the body acts when an external unbalanced force acts on it.
2) The center of gravity of a body placed in a gravitational field is that point through which the net gravitational force by the field acts.
3) The two centers - center of mass and center of gravity - coincide if the gravitational field is uniform and as such the body will possess only a translational acceleration in the direction of the field.
4) The 2 centers - center of mass and center of gravity - do not coincide if the gravitational field surrounding the entire body is not uniform. In such a case, the body will not only have a translational acceleration in the direction of the resultant gravitational force but the body will also have an angular acceleration about its center of mass due to the torque exerted by the gravitational force about the center of mass.
Please stop musing about what you are not educated about. Thank you.

I was just reading about a man from India, I believe, who is said to have not eaten or drunk anything in well over 70 years now -- and he amazingly is still alive.
Oh that guy from Junagadh in India whose claims of not eating, not sleeping, not excreting, not urinating not being ill and so on for 70 or so years were tested by docs who found them true but expectedly they failed to understand the innate mechanism at work.

(Reference: Nov 28, 2003, The Times of India)

That guy is a vitalist who has through his yoga on the vital consciousness-force caused that to precipitate onto the gross physical plane which explains his superhuman feats.

At an advanced stage, vitalization can result in physical immortality (not invincibility since the vitalized immortal physical body can be destroyed by accidents, poisons, fire and weapons).

Vitalization is not the same as supramentalization which is an entirely different process and far superior to mere vitalization of the being.

The supramentalized body is not only physically immortal and invincible and not only is it beyond all bodily needs but the very organ systems in the body would atrophy and disappear and be replaced by 16 activated force centers along the spine leading to the pineal and besides the external form of the body would be completely transformed to support the indwelling supramental force.

The minor vitalist mentioned above is not supramentalized.

Again,

Your so-called prophet "managed to convince people" by ordering the executions of his critics and enemies, the thefts of their property, and the enslavements of their surviving women and children. This cowed the rest into "submission" to "Allah and His Messenger." The PROOF is in the authoritative MUSLIM histories that Mohammad was in fact a brutal and narcissistic warlord who used religion as an all-purpose justification for what today would land him in a psychiatric prison until such time as he would or even could be deemed fit to stand trial for numerous crimes against humanity.

How exactly will your ISA meet his death? Will he be hit by a bus? Perhaps the Popemobile? Will he be killed by an improvised explosive device? Will he insult Mohammad and then be beheaded by true believers?

Excerpt:

"Kermit Gosnell has been found guilty and will get what he deserves. Now, let's make sure these women are vindicated by delivering what all women deserve: access to the full range of health services, including safe, high-quality and legal abortion care," said Ilyse G. Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America.

__________
Naturally, Ms. Hogue, being the abortion-on-demand-without-exc use-or-apology enabler that she is, makes no mention of the FACT that Gosnell was found guilty of FIRST DEGREE MURDER in the deaths of three ACTUAL BABIES whose premature deliveries he had forced. Gosnell then "snipped" their spinal cords with scissors, thereby ensuring "fetal demise," which is the code language that enablers like Ms. Hogue prefer when describing what is, in fact, post-delivery MURDER.

Put another way, Ms. Hogue doesn't give a damn about vindicating the BABIES, because she's in the business of ensuring that the BABIES are PROPERLY killed, period.

You talk about Genesis 3 speaking of Jesus, when it is clearly speaking about the fate of snakes themselves to be trampled on and killed by the seed of Eve. I find you to be quite dishonest in what you say.

Jeremiah 31

31 “The days are coming,” declares the Lord,
“when I will make a new covenant
with the people of Israel
and with the people of Judah.
32 It will not be like the covenant
I made with their ancestors
when I took them by the hand
to lead them out of Egypt,
because they broke my covenant,
though I was a husband to[d] them,[e]”
declares the Lord.
33 “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel
after that time,” declares the Lord.
“I will put my law in their minds
and write it on their hearts.
I will be their God,
and they will be my people.
34 No longer will they teach their neighbor,
or say to one another,‘Know the Lord,’
because they will all know me,
from the least of them to the greatest,”
declares the Lord.
“For I will forgive their wickedness
and will remember their sins no more.”

You don't understand prophet (I think that's what you mean) that the snake was a part of Adams anatomy and what Adam and Eve did was sodomy. Adam was the first and your typical male and in that sense all men have inherited original sin. Satan (Adam) would be punished and executed with a sword mainly for the "crucifixion" which was actually something totally different and unique. Isaiah 27:1. Not only was Eve Adams wife, she was also his daughter and the seed of or second Eve (the Messiah) will conquer both Lucifer (Jesus) and Satan (Adam)

Isa is already dead, dust and bones. Let him rip.

I believe if he tries to come again, he will be killed by a missile fired at him by IDF and will be blown into pieces.

Greetings! and peace to you, bmz. Don't have too much time right now, just checking and was thinking of Joel.

Now, my question is for Joel - as I said, not too much time right now, and since your post came up with mention of Joel, I was just reading about a man from India, I believe, who is said to have not eaten or drunk anything in well over 70 years now -- and he amazingly is still alive. So the reports go. I wouldn't want to be with him, cause he looks awful funny in the weird sense, because I can go for humor, but just wondering if Joel has reached that point yet. Not suggesting he tries it, although I know he was working on it some time back - just wondering.
I hope to be back later.
Greetings and welcome back, NQ.

No, Joel will never reach the point. The master and the student have fallen apart. His master is vicious and is trying to harm Joel and I am worried.

I don't want Joel to become a mental wreck, so I have given him some vital suggestions and it is imperative that Joel starts to enjoy sex, which will boost his energy level, improve his blood circulation and tone up his body. However, he must go for a long play. No quickies.

The idea is to irritate and frustrate the master and every move and every thrust in bed, will hurt the master. The master will feel as if he is being brutalized and will move away from Joel. We want him to suffer, which will make him weaker and Joel will get stronger.

I am waiting for a Singapore Yogi's advice and will revert back to Joel on the recommended solution.

These days, I am enjoying reading material from Lollards of the 19th Century. The Lollards were sensible man, who were declared heretic by the heretical Trinitarian Church after John Wycliffe exposed the false doctrines of the Church.

Have you read his 14th Century translation, the first in English? It shows how the Trinitarian Church forged John 1:1-5 after Wycliffe passed away.

Hope all is well with you.

Proofs that Gospel of Barnabas is 15th Century forgery- Part-5

Bryant- 24

“Eve is said to have eaten an "apple" in Paradise (Chapters 40 and 41). We are well aware that Eve ate an unspecified fruit, but the belief that this was an apple dates from a very much later date.“

MUQ:

1. This is again a strange accusation, and how does it prove GOB to be a 15th century forgery?

2. IF OT books said that Eves ate Orange and GOB said that she ate Apple, it would not make it a forgery, only a contradiction.

Bryant- 25

Another proof of the Gospel of Barnabas being Medieval in origin, is that we have a report (Chapter 99) of a duel between two rival lovers. This type of chivalry was a creation of Medieval society “

MUQ:

1. This is another example of “Doubt Manufacturing Factory”. They use every imaginative approach to prove their point.

2, Fight between rivals for damsel is as old as Human history, we see one such duel between Abel and Cain the two sons of Adam

3. But our Geniuses believe that rivalry between suitor sonly started in Medieval centuries!!

4. How can one reason with such people?

Bryant- 26

In Chapter 80 of the Gospel of Barnabas we find a story about Daniel, which has it that he was taken captive by Nebuchadnezzar while he was yet two years old.…., Daniel was only three years old (Gairdner, page 26). Daniel was in fact born in 621 B.C. and the captivity began in 605 B.C., so he was 16 years old when taken prisoner.

MUQ:

1. How come this proves GOB to be a 15th century forgery? At most this could be taken as error and mistake in this Gospel and tell me which of OT and NT book is free from such mistakes?

2. On the face of it, Daniel being a small child is more reasonable, seeing that he was freed after 70 years of captivity, then took Jewish missions to Persian King, his son Darius and even his grandson..

3. If he was an adult at the time of deportation, then he would be of such an advanced age at the time of release that these acts are not very feasible from such an old person.

Bryant- 27

We read that Ishmael was offered on the altar by Abraham (Chapter 44). This is clearly an Islamic concept.

MUQ:

1. That is not an Islamic concept, that is a statement to correct the ancient mistake and bias of Jews.

2. It can be proven from OT books that Isaac could never have been the child of sacrifice. There are a lots of contradiction in the Biblical version.

3. Jesus in GOB corrects that “original mistake” of Jews.

4,. But how come it makes GOB a 15th century forgery?

Bryant- 28

“God is said to be the God of Abraham, ISHMAEL and Isaac in Chapter 212. It should read, according to the O.T. the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob.“

MUQ:

1. Is God of Ishmael different from God of Isaac and Jacob?

2. The statement of GOB is perfectly true and corrects the bias of Jews who some how try to remove Ishmael from the progeny of Abraham.

I have already addressed this before, Buford.

You must remember that Jesus was born and brought up as a Jew. The Jews were fiercely monotheistic, religion of God was in place and people already had the scripture. They worshipped only one God and were not pagans. And people were not fighting with each other. So, Jesus was a nobody in that sense. And always keep in mind that Jesus and his followers were never attacked and never tortured.

He brought nothing new and came with nothing new and left nothing new.

He did not introduce a new religion and a new God. Had he done that, he would have lost his head or would have been stoned to death the minute he spoke any nonsense.

However, looking at the way he lived under the Roman occupation, the biblical Jesus was sissy and a wimp. He did not stand up for his people, did nothing and instead, appeased the Romans.

Muhammad, on the other hand, boldly declared to the fierce Meccan pagans/idolaters "There is only one God and there is no other God besides God Almighty" and this was something totally new to the pagan Meccans and that is when people became his enemies. He and his followers were persecuted and attacked. Jesus did not go through all that.

If Jesus had gone to Mecca, he would have lost his head within minutes of opening his mouth.

Hope this helped a lot.

Hello MUQ,

Here some food for thought, you need. What you have given is just a little part of the similarity between Dante's work and GOB, although there are things that Dante have invented about Hell and curiosly GOB reported as they are truth. So now I'll give a larger part of it.

"The Italian poet Dante lived about the time of the composition of the G.o.B.(1265-1321) and it is interesting to notice a number of quotations from .., not to be tortured, but to see the unbelievers in their torments, recalls to mind Dante's picture of the same. The differentiation between degrees of glory, and the absence of all feuds and jealousies in heaven, are ..

http://www.bible.ca/islam/islam-judas-gospel -...

Dante copied from GOB.

Good job at deceiving yourself.
Ans.

This is a beauty of human mind, they can "prove" anything to be true.

Do we not have "idol worshippers", "those who worship many gods", those who worship a Triune God , and those who worship Only One God?

Each proving that he is speaking the truth and has "proofs" for it.

Have not you people "proven" that Quran is just a "imperfect copy" of Biblical tales?

So if you can "prove" that GOB is copied from Dante, what can I say about it.

You need more than this info to "prove" that GOB copied from Dante.

Since GOB is much older in time than Dante. If any one "copied" from GOB, it would be Dante.

Can we say that Bible Copied from Quran?

Why you people become so "dumb" when you try proving the impossible?

It has something to do with the state of your minds.

You "decide first" what you are going to prove and then gather bits and pieces from here and there to prove your "already decided conclusion"

This is a common trait which I see in "committed people", and I am sorry that you also have taken the same position.
