Contradictions in Islam

28 09 2007

“The food for the people in Hell will be only “Dhari” [Sura 88:6], or only foul pus from the washing of wounds [S. 69:36], or will they also get to eat from the tree of Zaqqum [S. 37:66]? Together, these verses constitute three contradictions.”

Is God Imaginary?

28 09 2007

In writing this article, I am going to assume you are an educated person belonging to one of the three Abrahamic faiths (Judaism, Christianity, Islam). You have a college degree, and you have been trained to think logically and rationally about the world we live in.

For example, you might be:
– An Engineer or Scientist
– A Doctor, Pharmacist or Nurse
– A Teacher
– A Manager or administrator
– A Government employee
– A Business owner
– An Account rep
– An Executive
– A Lawyer
– An Accountant
– Financial Sector
– Human resources
– An Architect or Designer
– A Software developer

You are a smart person. You know how the world works. You know how to think critically. If you are an educated theist (religious/believe in God), I would like to talk with you today about an important and interesting question. Have you ever thought about using your college education to think about your faith? Your life and your career demand that you behave and act rationally. Let’s apply your critical thinking skills as we discuss 10 simple questions about your religion.

And home of my future university:

Enjoy the pics!

The Democratic and the Presidency

24 09 2007

“March 14 leaders remain wary of him (Michel Suleiman – Army General), partly because he did not order troops to suppress anti-government street protests.”

This is the description given by a pro-government news site of why the pro-US-backed government (ruled by March 14) is wary of the Army’s general and his attempt at the Presidency.

These are the ‘democratic’ leaders the West is supporting. Whenever I read about Lebanon and these hypocrits are in power, I think i’m reading about democracy in Pakistan.

Religion – way of rule!

23 09 2007

What better way to think of consolidating your rule than to make a religion to scare everyone into submission! The Egyptians and Greek did it before us, then why is it not surprising that they would’ve done it 2 thousand years ago, if humans did it more than 6 thousand years ago!

Religion scares the crap out of its subjects to force them into doing what it tells you to do. Before religion, lying and stealing as well as rape were morally wrong. Religion did not introduce this concept for us, it was already there. What religion does though, is scare you into becoming moral. Whereas non-believers are moral because that is what is right – even though they are not rewarded for it.

A great philosopher once asked a religious man whether he is religious to avoid hell or to get into heaven. The religious man quiet predictably said both. When asked the same question back, he said he was moral because it is the right thing to do. The philosopher went on to claim that the biggest type of moral corruption is to avoid being immoral in fear of punishment and being moral in return for something.

Why does religion have to force people into being moral when the absence of religion quiet rightly portrays that one could be moral and perform moral deeds for no prize what so ever.

In fact, a study in South America (home of the far-right and Christianity – home of racism too) showed that there were more crimes in South American cities than their more Liberal counter-parts in less religious cities.
