What a prick, no one ever asked me!
Gods and the religious.
Yeah, I wondered about that, but I figured we're all adults, we can take it!
Interesting fact - when you try replying to a deleted comment, your own comment gets kicked down here - hm --
We need a 'Special' site location for such postings. You just never know what utility could be extracted from these. Anyway, during the course of human affairs, when the weather is dull, and the nights long, where are you going to go for enlightenment, humor(a monitor covered with ballistic spittle), and a case of rising bile?
1. I take the evolutionary theory to be true.
2. It's possible they once existed, but I think it's more likely they were made up as a sort of bedtime story, a way to answer children when they asked what happened when they died. From there, the stories got more and more ludicrous, until we have the modern Bible, Koran, Torrah, etc.
3. Why not? Why shouldn't we be on Earth? We are already here, what's done is done. I personally don't much care why I'm here. I just want to live the best life I can, the life that makes me happy. Hopefully, in my own quest for happiness, I can bring joy to others. That's my purpose in life. Being happy.
1- As others have said, evolutionary biology has this one pretty much wrapped up, IMO. I am at complete peace with this explanation of how humans appeared.
2. Truly, it doesn't matter to me whether or not any of them existed or not. I see no evidence that any of them have any kind of influence in the world today, except for the damage caused by their followers.
3. We are here because we evolved here, because the conditions were right for life to start and to diversify in the first place.
And furthermore, I can call myself an atheist whether or not I have read anybody's religious texts. I did read some of the Q'uran, and it was even more disturbing than the Bible. I cannot imagine what my brain and psyche could have done that was so horrible to deserve to have such nastiness thrust upon it. If I had a gun to my head I expect I'd read it and say what the gun-wielder wanted me to say but I still wouldn't believe it.
The U.S. has its faults, to be sure, but I am still free to say I don't and won't believe in your god or prophets. I wish you much peace and happiness in your beliefs, though.
for those who know arabic language , if such a book-Quran- can be invented by one person as you claim and believe, why cant tens of millions of arabic speaking non muslims, produce even one page of it ?? you claim he (PBUH) invented 600 pages and you cannot match just one page !! why are your tongues and minds helpless in this test, because your tongues and minds have to obey the creator.
non arabic speaking ,please check http://miraclesofthequran.com, can all these miracles be a coincidence ?
Mohammed (excrement be upon him) didn't write a single word. The Quran was cobbled together by crude acts of carpentry over centuries by people who hadn't even met the false prophet. Better writing can, and has, been produced - writing that complies with observable fact, writing that inspires love rather than making maniacal commands to kill and maim.
Sorry, KM, but your quran is nothing more than a steaming pile of superstitious, hateful bullshit.
i always like to answer that with Quoting Al-Razi whom google has celebrated his anniversary 2 weeks ago ..
"You claim that the evidentiary miracle is present and available, namely, the Koran. You say: "Whoever denies it, let him produce a similar one." Indeed, we shall produce a thousand similar, from the works of rhetoricians, eloquent speakers and valiant poets, which are more appropriately phrased and state the issues more succinctly. They convey the meaning better and their rhymed prose is in better meter. ... By God what you say astonishes us! You are talking about a work which recounts ancient myths, and which at the same time is full of contradictions and does not contain any useful information or explanation. Then you say: "Produce something like it"?! "
actually there is no book in history that resembles the other .. and by all means there are works of fiction, poetry and story telling that are more amusing and much more original than ur koran.
and as an arabic speaking person and i find it not amusing at all
Marvel, I don't believe anyone knows who actually wrote the Quran. Historical research has indicated that Muhammad himself was illiterate. I intend researching the matter further, when time permits.
I must say, I really applaud the courage of all of you guys at الملحـدين المصـريين - Egyptian Atheists - Think Atheist, for your decision to come out publicly with your beliefs, despite all of the hardship that that could mean for you.
Muhammad used to read and write. there is a famous incident in the islamic history during the negotiations between Muslims and the unbelievers for a peace treaty were they refused to sign it because it stated that "Muhammad was a messenger from god".
Muslims refused to put any modifications in it but Muhammad took the pen, removed the statement making all the controversy and wrote "Muhammad Abdul Allah" instead.
he could read, he identified the controversial statement , removed it and wrote something else instead. he wasn't illiterate as the Muslim Clerics trying to prove these days.
He didn't write it by himself . during these days, kings and leaders don't write by themselves but used to dictate to others who write for them.
i'd like to thank u for ur applause .. really appreciate it :D
Your road is rougher than mine, you deserve it.
