Re: allah the ship builder

The spiritual portent of the verse is obviously missed here. The verse isn't concerned with speaking of the cattle as the best means of transport. The previous verse clearly says that Allah created everything in pairs and he created cattle that you may ride i.e transportation and then it talks abou...

Re: allah the ship builder

In order that ye may sit firm and square on their backs, and when so seated, ye may celebrate the (kind) favour of your Lord, and say, "Glory to Him Who has subjected these to our (use), for we could never have accomplished this (by ourselves) This is very shallow.

Re: DO you agree with The Cat?

The Stone has suffered repeated desecrations and damage over the course of time. It is said to have been struck and smashed to pieces by a stone fired from a catapult during the Umayyad Caliphate's siege of Mecca in 683. The fragments were rejoined by Abd Allah ibn al-Zubayr using a silver ligament...

Re: DO you agree with The Cat?

As far as stealing cornerstone of Kaba is concerned, it can be stolen from Mecca too. So true. If you can deliver one I'm willing to offer 10.000 bitcoins. I am not talking about stealing it today. According to you, some centuries back (7th or 8th century or whatever), muslims shifted base from Pet...

Re: DO you agree with The Cat?

Well, then you have a religious center that is not regular destroyed by floods and earth quakes or occupied by rivals who kidnap the cornerstone of your Kaba. Very inconvenient if you are selling a new religion. All places in Petra have this problem of earth quakes and floods? Also don't we have re...

Re: The Polytheists are Visible

When was the last time we saw in history a character so grossly misrepresented to the degree that he was a saint and we see stories describing him raping, looting, enslaving and terrorizing people? First of all, that's the core business of early devotees. When establishing a new religion the devote...

Re: The Polytheists are Visible

I have not suggested that converts to Islam are dishonest or untrustworthy. The point is that many tales are unsubstantiated and are ridiculous. 1.How do you know that they are unsubstantiated ? What criteria should they meet so that we can say a story is substantiated? 2.Also just because those st...

Re: The Polytheists are Visible

Long time no see ? Glad to find you in good health and spirits. Most of them come from the tale-collectors, who tried to get as many tales as they could. The point is that Hadith is not Sunnah. True, and by that same measure you should also dismiss the koran, after all it was also transmitted orall...

Re: Is it Mekkah or Petra?

There is much more circumstantial evidence for the claim that Petra is Mecca. In the nineties of the previous century the Petra Papyri were discovered, together with a charred piece of wood with an Arabic description. The archeological context of this find suggests that inscription dates from the s...

Even his name does justice to the way he posts except for 1 missing alphabet. If you put the extra alphabet 'p' after letter S then the word becomes spam. One word can define him.

Re: the seat of thought and intention

I just want to make one point. Eagle uses the argument that quran is not a science book. We all agree with that but his intentions are to buy some leeway for unscientific statements made by the quran and its not a genuine argument. It is simply to make people go soft on the quran (ignore what it say...

Before I start answering the remaining arguments, I have couple of points regarding my previous post: 1. You need to show me where quran says that elements were combined. I need verses and not your words because we all know you have a great skill of putting words into quran's mouth. 2. I would like ...

It speaks of an extract of various non-organic, earthly elements, and water. In some of these verses it speaks of dust, dry clay at others of muddy, sticky clay, indicating that a combination of elements (the aforementionned water and dry matter) was involved at the beginning of the process.

Show me the bit where is says "from Cyrus's point of view" please. You are hitting the nail on the head.
