Re: Do we owe Muslims another apology?

So you do not believe in Allah, the Creator of the heavens and the earth. Let us discuss about that then. And there is no need for your to worry with whom I might be better off. That too you don't get to decide. It might be that one day his Creator might change his heart. I never despair in the merc...

Re: Do we owe Muslims another apology?

Then don't read it. If you have trouble with facts, you still have the option of fiction! Your socalled facts were presented in a very explicit way. Did not expect that here, from anyone. You could have chosen to present it normally, in an everyday language, but you choose to use a correct islamic ...

Re: Do we owe Muslims another apology?

Why did I do it? It was upsetting to read! Then don't read it. If you have trouble with facts, you still have the option of fiction! Let's just agree that we are in two different universes (very far apart!), and leave it at that. No harm, no foul. I won't agree to anything with you unless you make ...

Re: Do we owe Muslims another apology?

You sound you actually believe what you have written (?!). So? What is it that you are having difficulty understanding? This is a public forum, which as I understand it the administrators are rather religious on freedom of conscience and expression to the limit of decency...though the latter limit ...

Re: Do we owe Muslims another apology?

Tell us. Does Islam have a reciprocity law? Do unto others, that type of rule. This is a very good question. Thank you for asking that. First of all, I will tell you the very basics of Islam. In Islam, a Muslim needs not only to do right actions, but it is also necessary that he/she be acting from ...

Re: Do we owe Muslims another apology?

Beheading is a Muslim pass time. Not a Western one. This reply of yours is very interesting in my point of view because I had mentioned two examples for you to comment on and you objected to only one of them as a “pass time” of the West, namely beheading. I had also mentioned “torture” but you did ...

Re: Do we owe Muslims another apology?

You do not believe in equality under the law and that apostates should be killed, thus showing that I was correct in my evaluation of the corruption of your moral sense by your religion. As a matter of fact, the law itself recognizes that men and women are not equal Your vile and unjust law, yes. N...

Re: Do we owe Muslims another apology?

Is inequality between the genders good? Secular law says equality is better. This too is a very interesting subject. Thank you for raising this. What is gender equality first of all? From Wikipedia, we are given a definition from UNICEF as follows: gender equality "means that women and men, and gir...

Re: Do we owe Muslims another apology?

If you do not agree, then your moral sense has been corrupted by your belief system. I find that there are many logical fallacies with just this one single statement you made! I find it to be interesting that is why I am addressing it. For a start you make an appeal to fear that if I do not agree w...

Re: Do we owe Muslims another apology?

Not Islam, but scientists, philosophers and mathematicians who 'just happened' to be muslim. Hi Vegetariantaxidermy, I have liked very much certain things you said about the Muslims in our modern times, like the surgeons reference. It was to the point and in a funny style as well. Got a chuckle fro...

Re: Do we owe Muslims another apology?

Have you tested the ideology of Islam? Is it good to you? Yes I have tested Islam. Is it good to you? Yes. It is the best thing out there. I have also tested all the other major religions before Islam. And by very very far, Islam is the best of all religions. Now that is not just my opinion on the ...

Re: Do we owe Muslims another apology?

Do we owe Muslims another apology? Who is "we"? I do not know the complete composition of this "we", but that you belong to it is a rational conclusion I can make, otherwise it would not be a "we" but a "they"! I am of the belief that if anyone does something wrong to someone else, then they should...

Re: Why does math have applications to the real world?

Do you feel the need for examples? Some examples can do no harm! :D Let us take some readily understandable examples. Let us take the Golden Gate Bridge. The latter is a great engineering structure which required advanced physics and complex mathematics to express in the form of very complicated pl...

Re: The Fight for the Soul of Philosophy

His private notebooks contain a few unambiguously anti-Semitic passages.  From the English dictionary I get the following definition for semitic: 1. relating to or denoting a family of languages that includes Hebrew, Arabic, and Aramaic and certain ancient languages such as Phoenician and Akkadian,...
