Re: Islam for Feminism?

It is an insult to human and your own intelligence and rationality to use the term "Islamophobe." A phobia is based on an irrational fear. Given the evident terrible terror, evils and violent acts the Islamists had committed in the name of their religion and as a divine duty to please God that are j...

Re: Islam for Feminism?

BTW the Koran was not written by one man - there is little historical evidence that survives today, but the little that remains shows it was written in Iraq/Eastern Israel, took much Christian Gnostic views per Adam/Eve story. Its FAR from a unified work written by one man - Mohammed (in fact i per...

Re: Islam for Feminism?

Note my point, the Quran is the immutable words of God and whatever is conveyed 1400 years ago is supposedly final and applicable till all Muslims go to Paradise with eternal life, if not till eternity. kind of off topic, but wish to ask. do Muslims assume the Koran is the Final Word (I assume they...

Re: Islam for Feminism?

Rubbish. Women in both Saud and Iran are routinely lashed and jailed as you perfectly well know from recent cases. Much the same applies in other Muslim countries. I taught MA students for years - many from Muslim nations. I ran courses for overseas Muslim women and men who had been brutalised - al...

Re: Islam for Feminism?

I have spent many years full time basis researching the Quran down to every critical word and their context of the total 77,449 words in the Quran. The present Quran is not written in the original Arabic but some version of older classical Arabic. of course you have if you had actually paid attenti...

Re: Islam for Feminism?

i have no doubt that you interpretation of Islamic teachings are superior to those of someone who has actually read the quran in its original language from cover to cover Noted the sarcasm. However the fact is; I have studied very basic Arabic and Quranic grammar, but there is no critical need to r...

Islam for Feminism?

Note this video: The Women's March for Islam (Why Feminists Love Muhammad!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X2wxXMahRhM Therein Nadia Hassan claimed; "The Quran gives women rights equal to men, really equal!" This woman dared to lie with a straight face through her teeth. Note Wood's countered with ...

Note I stated, "a conundrum of ... an infinite regression leading to nowhere." Infinite regression is an origin, composed of and composing further infinite ...

Re: Siddhartha Gautama: The Buddha (c. 563-483 BCE)

The OP is a story for a kindergarten class. The Buddha Story is actually a myth representing the reality and the truth of life plus how to deal with all of life's negatives especially the mother of all, i.e. the inherent fear of dying. In a real situation then [2500 years ago] it would have been ver...

Re: Explaining Everything Explains Nothing

Yes...and those perspectives? They originate from what exactly? It is your problem when you use the term 'originate' in this case which denote 'origin' and thus leading to a conundrum of seeking for an unconditional absolute-origin within an infinite regression leading to nowhere. You should just g...

Re: Islam Means Peace?

Britain is only 1 country and isn't the same as many muslim countries invading many, poor basis of comparison! What are you talking about?

Re: Mind and physical

So they have an essence each which each moves things, like good and evil. There is no absolute essence. Ok. The essence of Yin is Yang and the essence of Yang is Yin. So there are two essences. Two minds. Yes, in the above case there are two essences in complementarity working as one. Note there co...

Re: Explaining Everything Explains Nothing

You say absolute is totally unconditional, but then say there is no absolute because there are no conditions for it. Then claim relativity as an unconditioned truth. I did Not say the following; "then say there is no absolute because there are no conditions for it." That is your red herring. My poi...
