Yup. Rome, Britain, every world power ever.

It's just the US's turn to be the global dick.

Just history repeating itself. Nothing to be surprised at, but it still makes me sad. Humanity should know better by now.

I blame islam. Tongue

Allah is the Arabian moon god, named for his old crescent moon phase.

What's the diff ?

Allah is simply the Arab word for God. Arab Christians say Allah as well. Both are Abrahamic religions. In Islam Jesus was a prophet just like Moses. Mohamed is also a prophet. The last known prophet to directly receive the word of God. Mormons take it one step further. In Mormonism Joseph Smith is the last prophet to receive the word of God.

You and me both, buddy. Not because I thought he had the answers, just that he asked some damn good questions.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

More respect. I don't withhold respect solely on religious affliction. Kingschosen is a Christian who is one of the most responsible and respectable people I know.

But presumably, you are respecting the person and not the beliefs / rituals / traditions / delusions.

Nope. That's the spin. They *say* they're "Abrahamic". That's the claim they made when they cooked it up. Whenever Islam conquered a foreign nation, they made the claim that whatever new god(s) they encountered, was just another name for Allah. Historically, it's false. Read "The Satanic Verses". Why do you think it made such a stink ? Islam is not really "Abrahamic".

The ole Mullah couldn't handle the truth.
The were very politically astute, when they decided to cook up a new religion to unify the growing empire. It was very conscious. They made up Mohammad, or at least attributed things to him that were impossible. No one has refuted anything Robert Spencer asks about in his book, "Did Mohammed Exist ?". It's really remarkably similar to what happened in ancient Israel, in the Bible, which was invented in Babylon, to control the "situation" (post Exile), Ezra (the prophet), was going back to, with a mandate from the Persian King, Artaxerxes. So what does he have for the first time under his arm, when he gets back ? The Pentateuch. To unify and control the nation. In the very sane way, Islam was invented to unify the politically disparate parts of the Arab empire. Constantine again, pulled the same trick to unify his empire. Religion is about political control. What better way to appease and maintain control of a conquered people, "your chief god is the same as our "most high", god, and you may continue to worship him, BUT, no other gods are allowed. It was their MO.
