Re: My way out of Islam

Are you sure you were a Muslim?....Did such questions never come up?.... It is polite way of questioning either their veracity or their mental capacity. They always come up into my mind , but consider being taught and brain washed by Islam since birth! even if you encounter questions or doubts, you...

I've witnessed events and demonstrations in Egypt since 2011 and served in the military for over a year before I travel. So I'm pleas...

Re-introducing myself

Hello! I used to be active here 4 years ago. Time changes a lot that I started to laugh on my old thoughts and ideas I just viewed. Actually I was old-fashioned concerning many subjects :lol: . I think I didn't have much courage to think critically in religion, inherited traditions and concepts. Any...

Re: Syria - Red Line Crossed By Who

Why should the West want a war in Syria ? I don't know, a re-structuring of the middle east, why wouldn't they? The US want to re-balance the scale between Al Assad military forces and the armed rebels on the ground and let the self-destruction process ongoing in Syria . In addition , if Al Assad m...

Re: Egypt and democracy

The chances of secularism (which also includes the separation and sharing of power) taking hold there in the near future is remote. But in the far future it is possible. In the near future there will be a new constitution including terms banning political parties based on religious bases and the Eg...

Re: The quantity of evil

Some old philosophers said "Evil always has a good side and there's nothing completely evil" It should be rephrased somewhat so as not to malign the principle - positive and negative versus good and evil. The world as we live in is subject to positive and negative influences in order for life to ex...

The quantity of evil

We always wonder, if there is a merciful God why does evil exist? Why do we suffer from diseases , wars and etc?.. But there's something very important we never consider in this equation , that evil has been always in a specific and limited quantity since the beginning of human existence. A specific...

Re: Youth unemployment in Greece and Spain above 50 percent

Is there a particular economic philosophy that is taking Greece into this seemingly dire economic reality? Is there a nobility or moral initiative that Greece politicians are working to impose? The Greek tragedy is a result to the governmental negligence , failure or disability to reduce the rates ...

Re: Why the U.S not satisfied with the revolution in Egypt?

No, America said, if the people vote for them then they vote for them, that's democracy. Unfortunately the only organized faction or party after the 25 January revolution was the brotherhood group . When we were in the streets calling for fulfilling revolution demands after Mubarak had stepped down...

Re: Why the U.S not satisfied with the revolution in Egypt?

Oil but not in Egypt. In Egypt they are quietly pleased that the Brotherhood is out and the military is back as they fund your military.
