So, I have started listening to the Audio Quran, since I have never read it before, and I have decided to keep a running journal of the lessons I can take away from it.
So far, 2 chapters in (roughly 2 hours) this is what I have learned.
- Fasting wards off evil.
- The longer you fast, the more healthy you will be.
- Slay all disbelievers, until religion is for Allah.
- Don't eat pork.

So last night, I got into a very heated, very emotional debate with someone on Facebook. In case you didn't know, that's what Facebook is for. You get on there, you find some post that some friend has put up, and you troll the shit out of it. That, obviously, is a joke, but it can sometimes be seen as truth. I took screen captures of the conversation with the woman I was "debating," but in order to keep identities private, I will not post those screen caps, even though I feel her…Continue
