Re: Is the Critique of Islam Islamophobic?

Look up "No True Scotsman Fallacy". I know what it is. But it's not relevant here. It's not even always relevant to Scotsmen. For example, it is true to say, "No true Scotsman fails to be associated with Scotland in some way." It's also true to say, "No true Scotsman is a woman." When the criterion...

Re: This is True Conservatism

So what do you think is the reason for the strong correlation between blacks and homicide in the US. Why do they continue to blow each other away with guns at such a staggering rate relative to whites? What do you think is the reason for this black bloodbath, old sport ? Black people are more often...

Re: Is the Critique of Islam Islamophobic?

And you don't know the difference between a handful of terrorists and 1.8 billion Muslims, who are peaceful. Watch the video. Seriously. Some facts will really, really help you. I ju[dge] by deeds. The Christian USA is responsible for millions of deaths. So the USA is all "Christian," just because ...

Re: Is the Critique of Islam Islamophobic?

Ask Trump when he prays to the baby Jesus if he's just getting on, or is he responding to rabid rightard Xians, who want to build a wall against other "brother Xians". You really don't know the difference between a Christian and someone who only says they are? Is it your supposition that people alw...

Re: Is the Critique of Islam Islamophobic?

Judge not by words but by deeds. As an axiom for judging AMONG professing followers of any ideology, to decide who's authentic and who's not, that makes perfect sense. But to judge the moral quality of the ideology itself, it doesn't make a lick of sense. Moreover, you can't even know how to "judge...

Re: Is the Critique of Islam Islamophobic?

The EVIDENCE I HAVE is absolutely EVERY teaching from BOTH "jesus" AND "mohammad". They ARE in line with each other, and thus comparative. Therefore, I have given you the FREEDOM to pick or choose ABSOLUTELY ANY thing you like for YOUR evidence. NO. I am being even more considerate than that. I hav...

Re: Is the Critique of Islam Islamophobic?

You make my argument for me. Thank you. Well, if that's your argument, then what is this "Christendom" entity you blame for all the world's evils? It's not "Christ"; it's a "kingdom" set up by religious men, for their own reasons. Well, if that's your argument, then what is this "Islam" entity you ...

Re: Impact of male god on human genders

if you'd like to talk about Biblical Archeology and the evolution of religions (such as the evoluton of Jesus as the most perfect man adopted by YHWH as his son to, Jesus born god's son but still a man, to Jesus as never born, and God....................i.e Mark/ Matt-Luke, and John).

fine, you believe whatever floats your boat, i know biblical history and know what i know.
Actually, that theory about God died about the same time as Sir James Frazer. It's neither current nor generally regarded now.
peace to you Sir and thanks for reply.
You are welcome. The same to you.

Re: Is the Critique of Islam Islamophobic?

I, unlike you, do NOT look at "sides". For your own sake, it's probably time you did. When you do, you'll see that there's been two types of people talking to you since you got to this site. One makes fun of you, mimics you, dismisses you, and things it's fair game to provoke you. Another side trie...

Yeah, chemistry and biology and physics are deterministic, and computation is deterministic (so, cuz the brain is a computin' machine, 99.99% of mental operations are deterministic) but in the midst of all this determinism, squattin', in of all places, the human brain, is a lil sumthin' that sets u...
