Who Is Allah?

There are 256495 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?”

WORD = GOD?
If WORD = GOD,. what is the WORD? What is its basal constitution? How did the WORD become GOD? If the WORD somehow became GOD, then does it mean that the WORD is greater or superior to GOD? Can GOD become the WORD? LMAO.
Have you ever heard of the concept of symbolism? And where did it say that the word became greater than God? Joel, you said you were thinking about attending school in the US. I would advise you not to. It will only confuse you. You simply are not ready.

BMZ, do you honestly have to wonder why anybody with even a high school diploma finds discussion with you to be absolutely pointless? You asked about my degree. I have a degree from Rutgers University, where they teach you things like philosophy and logic as well as science, math, finance etc..... They teach people how to think, not the Quran. The Quran is a useless textbook that teaches nobody any skills, and you are living proof of that. And you even don't know the Quran very well. So what were your degrees in? Jihad 101, 102 and 103? What was your Minor? How to make a fool out of yourself?
Do Rutgers also issue a Degree printed on a 3-ply toile tissue paper, Seeker?

I do not see any logic and reason in your posts. How did you manage to get that degree?

In case you haven't figured it out yet, and am not surprised if you haven't, you are considered a retarded here.

There is no point to discuss anything with a self claimed educated who makes idiotic questions and pretend an answer.

Go and stay with people more closer to your educational level - kindergarten kids. Am sure after few decades of years you'll be at their pair.

No he actually has either far less patience than I have or he is smarter than I am because he knows a hopeless waste of time when he sees one. But I think my patience is just about gone as well and maybe I need to get a little smarter.

I've never seen a thread quite like this where some are just outright lunatics, one is nothing but a nasty, ignorant, confused little boy that has an obsession for Phallic symbols, and the others could put all of their IQs together to be the same number as a shoe size.

It's amazing.

I really don't care whether they are interested in what I say and I make no special claims about myself like you do. You have acute mental problems, and like anybody who suffers from that, you have no idea of that. That's part of the very definition for the more severe mental disorders. I'm just fascinated about how people can be so screwed up and/or stupid and what they do when plain logic is shown right to them. This place blows my mind.

Why dont you write a Gospel because the Quran is also written by someone like you. It is pointless arguing/discussing with you because you keep on shifting the goal post using interpretations which suit the moment..

Look at the videos on youtube about the Kaaba and you will see thatg there is a rock there...Muslims face the Kaaba when they pray and of course they are facing and praying to a rock which is worse than some idol of God...Offer your fast to that stone >>>>>LOL]
I can write a gospel for you very easily. Here it is:

There was a noble woman Mary, whom no man had touch. God siad, "Let Mary conceive a child!" and behold, she was pregnant. She gave birth to a son. He was baptised under God's name and his mother named him Esu, pronounced as Esa.

People knew she was not married and they accused her of being an unchaste woman. She kept quiet and pointed towards the baby in her arms. God made the baby talk just as God had made a donkey talk before.

The baby told the people that he was the Slave of God and that God had granted him knowledge and wisdom and had made him a messenger to Bani Israel (Children of Israel).

When Mary's son was mature, he started preaching and told people to repent and be righteous. When people asked him about the greatest Commandment, he asked them to worship God Almighty with all their hearts, all their minds and all their souls.

The Romans felt threatened by him and used the Jewish hierarchy to grab him and hand over to them for a trial. How could God not hear the cry of the young man and the prayers of his noble mother?

God rescued him and delivered him to a safe place, where he remained in hiding and died at an old age.

And of course, none of the witness said anything to anybody else about fabulous and miraculous talking baby, right? Don't you have any common sense? Why do you think the ridiculous Infancy Gospel, where Muhammad got that story from, was never taken seriously by any of the smarter people at all? You should see what else it has in it. Jesus was a nasty little brat who used his powers to hurt people. Muhammad had no idea of what a ridiculous book he was getting these things from.

I deleted the commentary because it was absurd and rubbish.
You quoted: "24 The Jews who were there gathered around him, saying,“How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly.”
25 Jesus answered,“I did tell you, but you do not believe."
This is where John shows Jesus as a liar. Jesus did not lie but you can see how teh writers of the gospels lied through their teeth.
So, the Jews asked him:“How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly.”
Jesus answered,“I did tell you, but you do not believe."
Now, would you be kind enough to show me where and when did Jesus tell them openly that he was the Messiah?
Quote the name of the gospel and the verse.
I have read and studied all gospels and I do not see Jesus telling them openly, "I am the Messiah".
Next lie, please.
I don't see you telling the truth.
Jesus said "I give them eternal life"
Only God can give eternal life.

Jesus didn't say my Father gives them eternal life.
Nor did Jesus say by permission of our God in heaven I give them eternal life.

Jesus said "I give them eternal life"

Proving to the Jews that Jesus is equal to God His Father in power and glory.

And that is why the Jews wanted to stone Jesus.
The Jews knew what Jesus was saying, and they still didn't believe Jesus.
Like the scripture says: The Jews asked Jesus if he was the Messiah,
and Jesus said: "I told you and you do not believe".

If I were BMZ, you should be a shammed to say you are an educated man with 3 scholarly degrees.

For you ware a dunce cap as the most uneducated person on these forums.
You give shame to the word Muslim.

So, the WORD that is GOD, and which somehow transformed itself into GOD, is SYMBOLICAL. As a result, the WORD and GOD are symbolical. No WORD, no GOD. Both are mere symbols. LOL.

rabbee: you shall not, bear false witness. for i shall keep my mental condition with G-D, as opposed to yours against G-D. you all can use all the antiG-D logic you want, it is still not The-Logic of G-D actually here in TheTorah. i am not fascinated about any of you, normally at enmity against G-D.

and if you do not believe, that G-D actually visiting someone is not special. then that is just your, self special opinion against it. but at least i got the visit from TheG-D, that you never get. so maybe you need to ask, why prophetically me and not anti-prophetically you?
