Re: Zoroastrianism

Just picked up this book from the library today. Gives a history of Mazdaism and how it's the basis for all magic traditions in the Old World.

Re: Most Converts to Islam Were Raised Christian

"Christianity is on the verge of death", This is utterly not true. Actually, I believe that Islam is on life support. I agree with you. The showy nature of Islam today, is all about getting screen/air time, not about true faith. More and more Muslims are discovering that Islam is false, a...

Re: The London police's definition of Islamophobia

Re: Sanaa 2 - not

Sounds like the early catholicizing doctrine of not arguing with heretics, as the heretics new the scriptures inside and out, so the orthodox were unlikely to win an argument.

Re: Queen Elisabeth II as desendant of Muhammad

And tracing lineage is a shi'a thing. Also, when did tracing birth back to Muhammad mean anything? Aren't you supposed to be a Muslim first, even a convert?
