Informed is Forewarned: Read the Quran.

I’m almost half-way through my second reading of the Quran and find myself wondering what it would take to make Westerners understand Islamic ideology. I could explain how Islam is a religious, legal and political framework for life . . . but others have already written books about that. So I decided I’ll just frame the problem of Islam as briefly as I can and let the reader consult the Quran if they doubt me. If this leads to just one person… Continue

Not Divine Revelation

I recently attended a panel discussion at the University of Cape Town on religion and gender. It was hosted by the Current Affairs Student Society and the people on the panel were:

Charles. A white Christian man.

Sadia. An Indian Muslim woman.

Azila. A White Jewish woman.

All three debators are from the Religious Studies Department at UCT, and Azila is the first and only female Rabbi in South Africa.

Charles spoke about the… Continue

Modern Islam and the Quran: Living like Muhammad

The following is from a discussion, elsewhere, about Islam. Johnny, is confusing Muslims with Islam and is concerned about hatred in the world. My response clarifies my position about as well as I've ever clarified it, so I'm posting the exchange here in my blog.

@ Atheist Exile



First, there is a rational justification for not hating anyone. One day I think we can eliminate hate if we don't blow up the earth first.



Second, I… Continue

From Ali Sina: The Problem is Islam, not Muslims

I just ran across this essay from the eminent ex-Muslim, Ali Sina: the founder of FaithFreedom International. It expresses my own feelings on the subject better than I could. Note: I edited the essay for grammatical errors (Ali Sina is an Iranian and English is his second language).



The Problem is Islam, not Muslims

Video: Why Muslims Hate Us -- Netanyahu Answers

Admittedly, one doesn't expect an unbiased answer from a Jew about why Muslims hate us. But in this congressional hearing Netanyahu gives an answer with the ring of truth. What do you… Continue

Muslims Don't Want to Miss Out on the Witch Hunts

Over the weekend in India 5 women were accused of witch craft.





The women were paraded around, beaten, forced to eat excrement, and not the good kind either! A local Muslim Cleric has made the accusation that the women are witches yet no evidence is given in the article. I would like to propose that given a day, We could easily show how he's wrong about everything and even show him other cool things that might even blow his mind like the… Continue

worship of Allah



In Arabic, Allah means literally the one God. It is pretty easy to understand how different languages give the same thing different names. Is it that unusual to hear Muslims call God another name, like "Allah", while you call him God or Lord? Some people have no minds; in the last decade, a growing phenomenon was seen on the internet and in published literature. Allah is said to be the “moon god” that Arabs worshiped, and Kaaba (The Muslims… Continue

Very Nice Poem about Paradise....





Whatever we do, we’ll pay the price



In the depths of hell or in paradise



For the believer ,this life is just like a cage



For the unbeliever, it’s the ultimate stage



Little does he know about the awaiting reward



Which is full of luxuries, where no-one gets bored



You’ll enter the gate of paradise, if it’s in your fate



Your deeds and actions will determine…

Eight years later

From Not My God



Tomorrow is the eighth anniversary of the worst terrorist attack in history. For many, the events of September Eleventh strengthened their belief in god– for some, in an angry, vengeful god, and for others, a kind, loving god. Others, still, wouldn’t retain their faith in the aftermath of the tragedy. Some of you may be among them.



It is probable that Richard Dawkins wrote the God Delusion and… Continue

The Existence Of God

Congratulating an Atheist



Normally, when I meet an atheist, the first thing I like to do is to congratulate him and say, " My special congratulations to you", because most of the people who believe in God are doing blind belief - he is a Christian, because his father is a Christian; he is a Hindu, because his father is a Hindu; the majority of the people in the world are blindly following the religion of their fathers.





An atheist, on the other hand,… Continue

Islamophile

OK folks, we have a genuine islamophile in our midst. I have learned a great deal from his videos, but I doubt it is what he hoped I would learn. I would venture that your average Muslim is not any more noxious than your average Christian, but both fundamentalist Christians and fundamentalist Muslims are scary! Just so everyone is clear on this; I am armed and I do know how to use it!

Morality, Religion and Terrorism

Morality, Religion and Terrorism

Ex-President George W. Bush was wrong when he said the terrorists have hijacked Islam. In fact, it is Islam that has hijacked the terrorists. Bush and those who agree with him insist that the terrorists aren’t “true” Muslims; that violence in the name of Allah is counter to the Quran and Islam.



Examine that sentiment closely: compare it to what the Quran actually says. The Quran does have a paltry few verses…

Cultural Shift Due to Birthrates

I ran across this video on www.unreasonablefaith.com . The premise is that cultural shift is happening towards Islam in Europe and the US due to birthrates. If Islamic birthrates are 5x the rest of the population, it only takes a few generations for the culture to have shifted. You know, just like Idiocracy. The jackasses take over the world. It's amazing how dead on a comedy can be.



The video is essentially proposing that we get it on and "produce" more than 2.1 children per couple… Continue

Saudis show their compassion

The Saudi's have executed five men by beheading. Unbelievably two of them were juveniles. The manner of execution is against international law. The age of execution is set at a minimum of 18 by international law. Didn't they recently vote against religious criticism? This is why we criticize, you won't change and see yourselves for the animals you are until you are internationally rebuked. We all want social acceptance and respect. We shouldn't get it until we behave in an accepted manner and… Continue

Israeli official: Swine flu name offensive

JERUSALEM (AP) — The outbreak of swine flu should be renamed "Mexican" influenza in deference to Muslim and Jewish sensitivities over pork, said an Israeli health official Monday. Deputy Health Minister Yakov Litzman said the reference to pigs is offensive to both religions and "we should call this Mexican flu and not swine flu," he told a news conference at a hospital in central Israel.

Both Judaism and Islam consider pigs unclean and…
