Who Is Allah?

There are 256266 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?”

Continued: Conclusion;
Divine Virtue vs. Human Virtue

I believe the first six days of Creation were absolutely perfect days (i.e. days without end) because God created the evening (or end of each day) before He created the morning (or beginning of each day). That's what the Bible means in Gene-sis chapter one when it says at the end of each of the first six days of Creation, "And the evening and the morning were the... day." In other words, "And the evening or the end of day before the morning or the beginning of day are the middle or the fullness of day."

The end of each of the first six days of Creation before the beginning of each of the first six days of Creation were equivalent to the middle of each of the first six days of Creation. You see, the end of each day had no beginning and the beginning of each day had no end because the middle of each day was connected to God, who has no extremes. That's why, in God's divine system of time virtue is not the "avoidance" of extremes. That's why in God's divine system of time virtue is the total "absence" of extremes. The total absence of extremes is the middle with no beginning and no end.

As we stated earlier, Webster's Dictionary defines the golden mean as, "the perfect moderate course or position that avoids extremes..." For God, the golden mean is not the perfect moderate course or position that "avoids" extremes. For God, the golden mean is the perfect course or position that is totally "void" of all extremes because He is transcendent. When we say God is transcendent we mean He is before "the beginning" and after "the end".

In short, Human virtue is the avoidance of extremes. Divine virtue is the total ab-sence of extremes.

Rabbee,
Will you please accept my interpretation of Genesis 1:1 here?
"Now the earth was unformed and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the spirit of God hovered over the face of the waters."
http://www.mechon-mamre.org/p/pt/pt0101.htm
"the spirit of God hovered over the face of the waters", simply means that God was watching the creation of earth.
I don't think G-d was hovering like a helicopter over the waters. What do you think, Rabbee?
rabbee: nope! since we are talking about TheSpirit of G-D given with Noach. where sunday has never been any different, than any other sunday. because it's the exact same, sunday again. in this world that has never learned, why your evil and wicked history repeats without G-D truly. why has the syrian civil war, always happened in this whole world mentally not true to G-D?

"1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
3 And God said,“Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day."
I love to bat a curvy ball.
Actually, in the above passages, God did not say, "Let us create light!" Line 1 confirms that heavens had been created, so the sun was definitely there.
There could have been dense clouds, vapour and smoke covering the earth. So, when God said, "Let there be light!" it cleared up.
The light was allowed to shine through. Of course. So can you imagine that the sun was created after the earth was made?:-) Maybe someone thinks the earth was created before the stars? lolol.

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." Genesis 1:1. The words of the Brahms' Requiem comes to mind about false reasoning -- "Verily mankind walketh in a vain show."

Psalm 39:4-7
Lord, make me to know the measure of my days on earth,
to consider my frailty that I must perish. Surely, all my
days here are as an hand-breadth to Thee, and my lifetime
is as naught to Thee. Verily, mankind walketh in a vain show,
and their best state is vanity.
Man passeth away like a shadow, he is disquieted in vain, he heapeth up riches, and cannot tell who shall gather them. Now, Lord, O, what do I wait for?
My hope is in thee.

All that I need to know is that not one single person who has read the actual scroll makes the ridiculous claims that you make. Not even one. So your bogus excuse about one not having an actual scroll is nothing but utter nonsense and is to be rejected flat out as another one of your stupid excuses. Gee, you sure have a lot of excuses up your sleeve, don't you. It's a shame that not one single one of them actually work. This is a stupid little game you are playing. Quote the verses that back your assertions up or shut up. It's that simple. I did not ask you to give your own twisted summaries, I asked you to quote the actual verses and you can't do that because your wild claims are nowhere to be found in the Torah.
rabbee: so why are you expecting, anyone in this whole lying world to be true? when you can't even get this today right, with G-D here in TheTorah again.

is it my fault that every thing that G-D came and said to me, is verifiable in The-Written Torah also? with you accusing TheG-D, WHO came and said all of this to me as the liar compared to your truth. when you are the one, claiming G-D'S verse is different than yours today at the end of this sixth day.

and do you really think i am stupid enough, to believe you i have never met with instead of TheG-D WHO came to meet with me? the alleged g-ds of your own twisted summaries, vs TheG-D of the non-twisted summary, in this whole world doing the twist. in your the seeker of the twist, since none of your version are in alignment with G-D'S here in TheTorah again.

I love it, Rabbee, when you even go after yourself.

The war in Syria must go on, Rabbee. Asad is the better man compared with the gangsters, rogues and other extremists, who have have ganged up against him.

Only after killing lots of each other, they will realize and reconcile. Muslim countries need massive revolutions and revolutions, you know, are not bloodless.

Let us not let Syria sink. It is the most secular country in the M. E.

Yeah, he can't even keep track of who HE is, and yet everybody better listen to him and follow him or they will forever be condemned. When it really comes down to it, this guy is nothing but an annoying azz with nothing of any substance to say. Good for you that you tolerate it so well and have so much patience, because personally, I find it highly annoying. I thought it was entertaining at first or even funny, but it really gets old and annoying after a while, especially since he just keeps repeating the same things over and over again as if anything is going to change each time he repeats himself. I know this is a free forum, and he will continue posting his repeated nonsense over and over again because he has no other outlet, and he has the right to do that, so I guess I'm just going to have to tolerate it. But I really wish he would just stop it and see how pointless anything that he says really is.

rabbee: nah! i, do not think so. since we are talking about a plague that did not have to happen, in the world if true to G-D. this is just a plague, of evil and wicked vs evil and wicked. with asad being, the most evil sob in the valley. must choose to be true to G-D, or the plagues of blood curdling revolutions. in this world that would rather choose, pestilence, plague and famine, rather than to truly believe in G-D.

in this world and their grandmother, that has always chosen the same mental mistakes, rather than truly believe in G-D. missing the obvious that we cannot be in GanEden, with all this pestilence, plague, and famine. and if we are not in GanEden true to G-D, then just where in the cursed hell are we not true to G-D?

I would say that I agree. I see too much support for Assad to compare him to someone like Saddam. Many of these rebels are merely looking for eventual Caliphate rule like bin Laden wanted, which has continually proven to be a stupid pipe dream in the modern world that would only through the Middle East backwards even more than it already is. The Middle East has still yet to recover from being in the dark ages after 400 years of Ottoman rule and oppression. It cracks me up to hear people in the Middle East call the US and the British oppressors, when it was the British that freed them from the Ottomans, and at least let them have their own sovereign countries. That's a heck of a lot better than anything the Ottomans did for the Middle East.

I have no idea why the US would ever get involved. Basically, no matter what they do or don't do, everybody is going to still hate them anyway. It's simply the popular and default thing to do. They helped Libya, and that meant nothing to them, they still hate the US. They helped Bosnian Muslims, and that meant nothing and it is still popular to say that the US is fighting a war against Islam and Muslims. If they get involved, they will be seen as meddlers. If they don't, they will be seen as negligent for allowing the bloodshed to continue.

So if it's always set up that the US will always be seen as wrong no matter what, they might as well save some money and their own lives and do nothing just like the Russians and Chinese always do. Grab a bag of popcorn and watch Muslims do what they do best. Muslims are never more in their glory then when they have something to fight for. It gives them purpose to their lives. Seems ingrained in the religion itself.
