If you are not interested in understanding what Muslims believe about Islam, but instead want to present your own ideas about Islam, why should anyone care to listen? Since you are not going to implement them, like many Muslims do, why should I care what you believe about Muhammad?
Pop is the opposite of what Lebron wants in a coach
There would have been no Islam. Islam was designed specifically to co-opt Christianity and ride the wave of its success by simplifying everything that was complex about Christian theology and reducing and clarifying its ethical burdens. The areas historically conquered by the Rashidun Caliphate were heavily Christian areas.
Argumentum ad verecundiam.
I know. I am Resurrected. So you have a New Book now.
Not angry at all. But given that the majority of your posts only contain a noun, a verb, and either "freedom" or some gobbledygook about guns, shit is about all they deserve.
Me, in particular? No.
Do you get your climate data from "National Review?"
As always, your blissfully ignorant demographic doesn't understand the facts. You're no different than the flat earth people Sling Blade. ;)
When the blind's are uneven. I hate it when one side is all jacked up.
Here is how "moral" your current Pope Francis is.
Among the myths and pseudo historical theories that his blog tackles are:examples that I have NEVER used in a discussion.
Tempering glass or metal with heat isn't dividing or destroying the country
It appears, the words of one person represent the whole.
We have swap meets but I think they are the same thing as flea markets. My brother goes down nearly every weekend. Before my mother became incapacitated, she went with him, and they spent hours and hours picking through stuff and bringing it back. Now my brother has the lovely task of going through the things my mother filled the house with and finding a way to clear it out. Today he wants to take some of it for donations.
If I knew for certain that this universe was created, but humanity was just a side-effect, that'd make me extremely interested in knowing what the actual plan was supposed to be. I'm rather suspicious of the idea that a plan could be "vast beyond [my] imagination." Maybe I couldn't have come up with a plan myself, and maybe I wouldn't be able to think through all the details, but explaining the point at a general level should be pretty straightforward if there's a plan at all.
Regardless the "miracles" that I do not believe that occurred and that are of human invention to impress the followers, I believe Apollonius teaching had nothing to do with such exaggerations but it was purely based on Hermetica, like Plato's. Hermetica was a highly philosophical book just like Buddhism that was accepted as a religious book. However if one reads it, he realizes that the concepts are nothing but a way of explaining the universe created by the "unknown god" who isn't supposed to be venerated such as. Actually Apollonius Theosophy derives from Corpus Hermeticum which also influenced the Heracletian, Platonic and Orphic literature. The same Agnostic concepts we find in Protagoras, Parmenides, Pythagoras, Plutarch, Aristotle and many other philosophers of the Stoic and Orphic philosophy that is adopted by the Hebrew-Christians.
No problem. It is both. Man made the mess. And man has to improve it. But God will work with Man while Man is doing it. So In this instance Man is going to Rule by the Wisdom God gives on an ongoing basis from moment to moment. Meaning I am giving you Wisdom coming from God to Me and then to you. So to you I am God. But I do know that I am not. Like Moses was to Pharaoh. But obviously the choice is yours. You can also be in my position and get the Wisdom from God firsthand. It is up to you.
I think he meant big 'D' democratic. As in DNC.
And why should atheism (or for that matter any creed) rule out suicide at all?
