Re: Islam Means Peace?

Islam, directly translated, means submission or devotion.

Saying it means peace is propaganda.

Islam is equal to a prison

Islam is something most of its members are born into. They are practically brainwashed from childhood to think Islamic. Since they were impressionable, naive, innocent kids, they have been told that Muhammad lived "the perfect life" according to "Allah, the most gracious and powerful". Did they have...

Re: Does the Human Brain Create or Receive Consciousness?

Our body (and brain) is probably just an avatar. No more real than a holograph.

As Einstein said, when he realized that he'd lost the battle with Bohr:
Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.

Re: Let's kill God - that evil SOB

The undoing of religion are heavily suggested in various scriptures. Bible - Book of Revelation: "and i saw no temple in the city (New Jerusalem) Buddha predicted that 5000 years after his death, him and all his teachings will be forgotten. Prophecy of the Popes only foretells of 113 "popes and aft...

Re: Let's kill God - that evil SOB

My goodness, such a naïve perspective. Did it ever occur to you that maybe there would be a lot less mass murdering done by those who shout that particular rebel yell if there were a lot less instances of evil western imperialists invading their sovereign lands (covertly and overtly) in order to ga...

You apparently think that those who kill in the name of God do get to decide.
Well they are closer to the original version than any pious self righteous homemade version is. Sadly.

My message is not that the terrorists are right, but that God is evil.

Let's kill God - that evil SOB

Let's assume for a moment that God exists, and that the Old Testament describes him. If we soberly and honestly analyze that description, we get something similar to Richard Dawkins description: The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud ...

Re: Are you superstitious about your birthday?

I hate birthdays. One step closer to death + unwanted attention. Not that life is that great, but the other thing is unknown.

Re: Is The World An Illusion?

My understanding of the word 'illusion' is a misperception of something presented to you. Like an illusionist making things disappear. They only disappear in your mind. So, the world is no more an illusion than you are yourself. The illusion is always in your mind. Your false perception. Either it i...

Re: What attracted you to philosophy?

I always thought philosophy was an individuals approach to life or a subject. I learned very late in life that it is a branch in science. What attracted me to it was that it is "the why". That's right up my alley. Fits me perfectly. I love science and "the how", but it is "the why" that really makes...

Re: Will Any Theist Believe in an Inferior God?

Jews, Christians and Muslims all believe in Abraham's God. Jews believe they descend from Abraham's son Isaac, and Muslims believe they descend from Abraham's son Ishmael. So it's the same God. Only the messages/demands from him separates them.

Re: The Futurology of Fuckin' PC

It is the duty of any rational thinking person, to step on as many toes as possible, when PC gets smothering.

So start stepping folks, we have many toes to cover, before we can breathe freely again!

It's been nearly a century now that hardcore materialism was destroyed. It's a little sad that many still haven't received the death notification.

Re: Double Slit Experiment

Actually, I just came across this video which explains singularities: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-q7EvLhOK08 - check it out! Thank you for the reference, but I know it already. Singularities are mathematical constructs with new rules. The Big Bang was one. Black holes are too. Singularities ar...
