Re: Hindu Radical Universalism

Or perhaps, as you are being personal again and not discussing my statements (like the "religion") but focussing on the person (like the religion's "followers") your arguments are confused, and perhaps for the sake of the forum you should butt out from discussing anything with me. As it seems that ...

Re: Hindu Radical Universalism

This forum has many Hindu members, and providing a list of things employed to discredit or annoy Hindus is not perhaps the best way to win friends and influence people. Did he say anything about Hindus as people? No, only about a certain doctrine of Hinduism, different to what you do. And he's only...

Re: Allah swears by Quran but Why?

What is "I swear" in Arabic? [quote="36"2 transliteration"] Waalqur-an i alhakeemi I have no idea what most of this says, but the start: Wa = and al = the Qur-an = Quran Where is "I swear" there?[/quote] Possibly they have gotten "swear" from the previous verse i.e Ya Siin wa al-Quran al-Hakeem = O...

Re: Criticism of Buddhism

While studying Buddhism and practicing i found myself become more passive, less human, sometimes depressed and even contemplated on suicide(purely logically and mostly driven by the first noble truth - life is suffering). I was conditioned more and more to have aversion towards life and that only p...

Re: Very cool videos.... and a challenge to any theist out there

However in my estimation the Cosmological argument is very strong evidence for the existence of God. The the so-called "Cosmological Argument" starts by assuming that every effect must have a cause, but then it immediately contradicts that assumption by defining a "first cause" or "prime mover" whi...

Re: more gems from tafsir ibn Kathir

"qatilu" does mean "fight". Auqtulu means kill. Dear Debunker How would translate this (i.e. the meaning of the underlined)? I know you're not a strict hadith Muslim, I'm just interested in what you would say. ‏حاربت ‏ ‏النضير ‏ ‏وقريظة ‏ ‏فأجلى ‏ ‏بني النضير ‏ ‏وأقر ‏ ‏قريظة ‏ ‏ومن عليهم حتى حاربت...

What is needed is an interpretation, a textual hermaneutics, an exegetical one liner that puts the whole rigmarole called Quran in an explicit narrative. And here it is. Q uestionale U tterings of a R abid A rab N utcase. Hello farishta There's no need for this, we've already seen your acronym.

Re: Help Iranians.Let the world know. watch how a student killed

You can say that again. The problem in Iran is lack of freedom. I'm sure the day that Iranians get rid of their Islamic government and enjoy freedom, the count down for the destruction of Islam begins. The largest population against Islam live in Iran, though they still have to pretend that they're...

Re: Christian beaten to death for drinking tea

What ever happened to the believe of Muslims who tell us Islam teaches that killing one person is like killing the world? That was never an Islamic belief, it's from the Talmud. "Whoever destroys a soul, it is considered as if he destroyed an entire world. And whoever saves a life, it is considered...

Who told you that it is unusual for girls to start puberty at the age of say 8? Girls may start their puberty between age of 8-13, there's nothing abnormal about a 9 yr old attaining puberty. Do you think the onset of puberty is the right age for a girl to have sex? I think it's fair to say that it...

As he said in the videos, several times, he's not working on proving or disproving A god, let alone ANYONE'S SPECIFIC god. He's working further back- first looking for the primary characteristics of a being we call 'god.' Which we can do for other beings, and sometimes (to varying degrees) non-phys...

Re: Athiests are as bullying as they claim Fundies are

Perhaps not, but when others join in the "challenge" then it does become a form of bullying. Cyber bullying is a rather different matter to cyber stalking, in my understanding. A cyber bully unlike a school bully will not break your arm or your teeth, just bruise your ego. A cyber stalker takes the...
