Re: Is the Critique of Islam Islamophobic?

Fear is an automatic emotional and biological response to a situation And it can be either rational or irrational depending on that situation A rational fear is one where the fear is justified because the thing in question can actually cause harm An irrational fear is one where the fear is not just...

Re: God is an Impossibility

A purposeful creator of the universe, or of planet earth and all it's life, are not impossibilities. Just seemingly improbable. We exist, we create, we play with DNA, of course on a much smaller scale. What shall we be able to do in the future. If we can possibly outlive ourselves that is? Could we...

Read the following to understand what it is that I find within the question of consciousness. But which one is your argument exactly, let's see. All that I quoted! https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sentience Sentience is the capacity to feel, perceive, or experience subjectively. If you do not unders...

Re: Do Not Blame Muslims!

OK VA, I'm sorry for not being more exacting with my responses. In truth I don't read the entirety of a thread, in fact sometimes I don't read an entire post. So since this is true what I should do is quote only those sentences or paragraphs that I'm actually referring to in my rebuttals. One of th...

Re: Free will and things I dont see anyone has noticed

There's no such thing as a soul or consciousness, or any other such misconception of some mystical thing. What do you mean by consciousness when you say it does not exist? You sense, feel, think... have experience. Even if it is all illusion, you still need consciousness to be conscious of it. Read...

Re: Free will and things I dont see anyone has noticed

There's no such thing as a soul or consciousness, or any other such misconception of some mystical thing. There is no body/mind problem. It's just the way the organic machine works. Humans, and all animals for that matter, are simply recording devices, albeit not very accurate, especially over the ...

Re: Is the Critique of Islam Islamophobic?

Together the "fear of death" and "love of life" is a dichotomy. As they both define one another. Today, seemingly, one can't have one without the other. Those that deny their "fear of death" and prefer to say they have the "love of life," fear being one that fears. Especially in the faces of a great...

Re: What is the need for God?

Today there is no need for the idea of gods/god for a great many that are indeed wise, understanding the past and current human condition/s. But for those that have neglected to combine philosophy, psychology, sociology, history, chemistry (including biochemistry) and cultural anthropology, to name ...

Re: Age: The Perfect Empirical God Exists

Is it REALLY me who is being silly, or is it REALLY your ASSUMPTIONS, which are just plain WRONG, that are making you ask rhetorical questions that you BELIEVE you already KNOW the answer to, which again are just plain WRONG answers anyway, which is what is REALLY silly?

Re: Islam Means Peace?

It's one thing to have knowledge of what someone said or wrote, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that what they said or wrote is in fact knowledge.

A simple idea, but one that many fail to consider, for a great many reasons.

Re: Islam Means Peace?

Let's not get started IC, "Get started"? On what? I was not "starting" anything. I was just telling you history, and history that you can get from any Islamic source too. For example, on abrogation, see this very, very Islamic source: https://islamqa.info/en/answers/105746/abrogation-in-the-quran-a...

Re: Islam Means Peace?

The only way to know for sure is to study the Qurʾan and other historical documents, paying close attention to context, as I understand that is why many get the wrong impression. What is the right impression? Islam is peaceful? No, rather that groupism is for the ignorant. And that knowledge is ind...
