RE: An intro thread because I'm bored
It's nice to understand things a bit better as to how others have on their view. Thanks Mullah.

Still waiting, Mullah.
Still awaiting a response.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

You're welcome. I appreciate your appreciation, too. Wink

Our friendly resident Calvinist, kingschosen, started his own and it's been a great success. The reason I suggest this is because the information you've already provided us is just too good to be hidden in the Introductions section Tongue and I'm sure there are many others already on this forum who have their own questions they'd like to ask and discuss with you.

Okay, I'll start a thread over there. I like that idea. I had actually thought of doing that after seeing kingschosen's "Ask a Theist" thread. I enjoyed reading his thread. But, if you don't mind, I want to make some more posts in this forum and become more familiar with the rules and stuff before starting an actual discussion. So, I will start my own thread when I think that I'm ready for it (or hopefully by next week). And thank you for the suggestion.

No need to apologize, Zephony. Anyone else can answer them. So, you didn't make a mistake by answering them.

And I'm happy that you did that. Thanks.

I'm sorry for the delay, Chas, but please be patient. I will post a response to your (and morondog's) questions as soon as I have gathered my thoughts together.

RE: Ask a Muslim [split from introductions]
Why do alot of muslims get offended so easily when it comes to their religion?
You seem pretty relaxed about it all and I know some pretty offensive stuff has been published about Muhammed but even when seemingless harmless things happen some muslims still get upste like for example: I told my gf (she's turkish and muslim) that Muhammed is to islam like Ataturk was to turkey namely being the "architect" of it. I figured since turks are pretty nationalistic she might agree but instead she got angry at me. Telling me I can never compare the two. Not saying my comparison is without flaws but nothing to be upset about I would imagine.

RE: Ask a Muslim [split from introductions]
Do you feel that the Q'uran has been abrogated in the past? If so, do you feel that this is appropriate?

My girlfriend is mad at me. Perhaps I shouldn't have tried cooking a stick in her non-stick pan.

RE: Ask a Muslim [split from introductions]
Welcome Mullah.

Is it not the case that the history and mythology of all the religions of the Book, along with the zealots, make the perpetrators of such writings, albeit 'misunderstood' on some instances, make the Koran dangerous ,if only by the mismanagement of crazed god obsessed fanatics linked to militarism and politics? Thank you.

Some time ago a Mullah here in Australia described some young women as "RAW MEAT", relevant to their dress as related to a rape case.
When asked if Australia should be become a Moslem nation he replied ....."yes a very good idea" Do you agree?

RE: Ask a Muslim [split from introductions]
Hi and welcome.

Please double click on the attached photo I took a few days ago at the world atheist conference in Melbourne. What were these loud, angry, threatening Muslims doing protesting at a peaceful atheist conference? Why are they threatening to burn Ayaan Ali Hirsi? Why did this beautiful, articulate, intelligent lady need to turn up at the conference in an armoured car with multiple bodyguards?

I will hazard an answer for you. These ignorant brainwashed boys have been reading the fucking Koran.

I congratulate you for somehow managing to reinterpret the Koran and water it down. Why not go the whole way and throw the stinking piece of shit in the bin?

BTW, just in case you think I'm picking on you, the fucking Christians were there too, and were threatening people with hell as well.

Close your eyes for a minute and imagine a world without God, Allah or Yahweh. No more bombs, shootings or war. A brotherhood of man. The more you promote Islam the further we move away from that. Please think about that before you reply.

RE: Ask a Muslim [split from introductions]
I am skeptical about asking you, Mullah, and getting an honest answer. I'm not saying you would deceive on purpose, but there does seem to be a witholding of explanation on religious matters to non-Islamic people from members of the Islamic faith. Over and over I hear the phrase "religion of peace", but that is clearly not the case when Muslims are offended. The call for Salman Rushdie's death for writing a fiction novel, the threats on journalists and then on all Dutch citizens for reprinting cartoon images of Mohammed, and many more incidents are evidence to the contrary. It has been very clear to many that outsiders don't hear a complete message, and Muslims are quick to deny, twist, or marginalize facts about the Quran when asked sensitive questions.

But despite all that, I do have a question. Regarding the right to freedom of speech: Why do you think the Islamic faith gets a pass on open ridicule for the ideas it professes, or its dogma that followers adhere to? And, do you think Islam should be an open subject of free speech as much as any other without the speakers feeling afraid or stigmatized as insensitive?

RE: Ask a Muslim [split from introductions]
Sup Mullah
Why does Allah seem to be a massive dick towards unbelievers?

Why is context so important when a verse that seems angry and evil is shown but not a verse that appears to be good? It's quite annoying.

What's with all of this metaphorical stuff? Why is some taken literally and others a magical metaphor?

Do you sincerely believe that the Quran has miraculous claims in it?

Sapere aude! Have courage to use your own understanding!
Take the risk of thinking for yourself, much more happiness, truth, beauty, and wisdom will come to you that way.


Enlightenment is liberating.
