So cutting someone's hand or foot off is a good moral value?
Yes its far far better than frying brains out and making the murderer suffer.

Since when cutting a hand off didn't cause pain?

It does cause pain, but come on please, you really can't compare amputation with frying the brain. Its barbaric the way US excesutes people.

Amputation is usually done with something to relief the pain (or by taking the pain away completely during the prodecure). Cutting a hand off the muslim way is not.

Both punishments are barbaric but atleast a dead person doesn't have to go trough a lifetime of emotinal pain caused by barbarians.

Thats just crazy. You are being stubborn and defending US against Islam.
By the way now muslims dont cut the hands off like the old way, they do use anesthetic today. We are not brutal barbarians, you know!!!! :x

That's a load of crap and you know it but let's say for the sake of argument that in a tiny fraction of these incidents in some muslim countries they do use anesthetic and are not 'brutal barbarians' as you put it. Muhammed didn't use anesthetic and didn't teach to use it either in these cases. Why are you calling him a brutal barbarian?

Listen dear chap, think for yourself for a minute. Dont ask stupid questions.
There was no such thing in those days. Anesthetic was not invented then.

You shot yourself in the foot already (if you don't get it by now as to why, I'm not going to bother and draw a picture of it for you to explain your mistake better), now move along.

Sorry - anaesthetics were known, and where there was some rudimentary knowledge of medicine,, there would have been knowledge of anaesthetic substances - the plant Hyocyamus niger (henbane, containing the anaesthetic drug scopolomine/hyoscyamine) was known to the ancient Egyptians and was listed in the Ebers Papyrus (1,500 BC). Similarly opium (Papaver somniferum) was known as a pain killer and inducer of sleep from at least the time of the Minoans (1,500 BC) and was used throughout ancient Greece, and opium was used by the Romans as a cure for headaches. Similarly cannabis which is anaesthetic for certain muscular and neurological conditions, was known and used in ancient Rome for medicine and pleasure.

So when Mohammed in Arabia told people to stop using frogs in medcine (whose skin secretions contained biogenic amines - bufogenines - which are also potentially anaesthetic) he was showing his ignorance of medicine.

Better to dish out myths about camel piss and flies' wings, eh?

my friend richard, fashion shows is the first of many videos on her site. just click on other items included there.

there are many videos in which converts give reasons why they converted to Islam. in the list of videos on this link,
there are some scientists from Britain and America and Germany etc etc who converted to Islam. They gave their reasons wy they did that.

check it yourself:

There are Professors, as well as British judge who also converted to Islam.

you can't live in denial all the time. islam is very attractive to an honest mind. Quran gives clear and logical reasons for
existence of God and it gives good news that after death there is life forever in Paradise for those who are good people.

Ahmad2010,
Your link to the converts happens to be a fashion show for islamic clothing! I clicked on Richardthelionhearts, and his was an article on "Disability rates higher for Asians". What exactly did you want to show us?
you can't live in denial all the time. islam is very attractive to an honest mind.
Just to let you know, you got honest confused with simple. A lot of people have an honest mind without converting to Islam and they are doing just fine in their lives.
Quran gives clear and logical reasons for
existence of God and it gives good news that after death there is life forever in Paradise for those who are good people.
Can you please provide REAL links or PROOF of clear and logical reasons for the existence of god by the Quran?
Thanks,

The only reasons that anyone would convert to islam is because:

They are braindead morons. Simple.
I used to be an atheist until I realised that I was god.

Apart from a few blind love marriage situations, the primary reason for converting to Islam seems to be some sort of untreated mental problem.

I think the people who are drawn to islam are looking for a guide book that gives them all the answers..then they can just follow it hoping it will get them into heaven. They are people who are weak minded, lost cannot find a path..Then once they convert..It is pure hell after that, they cannot go back.

according to me, women r attracted by d concept veil.as v knw a large amount of western women ,wearing revealing outfits, gets angry as d men look@ dem as great f@#k ( pardon my expression ) sexy chick, dey feel reluctant to dis n get mor attracted towards islam, not bcz of islam or muhhamad but bcz of d veil. n most oftn dey deeply repent as soon as dey feel been oppressed. whn dey get chance ( if its possible )after a period of time of torture dey'l leave d cult hence d big numbers of apostasy especially by women.
For men, i believe , dey get large number of benefits , polygamy more dominance, 72 everlasting virgin houris, dey get more attracted. western men often get involved in extra marital affair ( a popular reason of divorce ) but becoz of d concepts lik polygamy n temp marriage, dey can be easily attracted toward islam, n again not bcz of islam or muhhamad.

for dose number of people who got converted not due to above reasons, dey simply didnt had any idea of it, dey had been fooled to believe, islam is religon of peace justice honor n so on.
any type of comments is accepted, im sorry if my thoughts r wrong, or i covered only small part of d large picture. in short for being koo koo :prop:
