  1. Believing the unseen is rational?

    You saying that someone else logically proved the existence of God isn't a very strong argument. You can use the argument used by that person to prove the existence of God but just saying that someone else did it isn't really logical proof. I believe in God btw. I'm only saying how it isn't logical.
  2. Believing the unseen is rational?

    The OP says "unseen" but I think he/she is talking about the existence of a God or a Creator and not everything that we do not "see" or understand. Your line of reasoning doesn't really prove that a Creator must exist. It only proves that there is something or things that we cannot see or understand, not necessarily that this something created everything. The most common line of reasoning that people use to prove that a God exists who created everything is that things cannot exist without someone creating them. And then they will give you a few instances of how human beings make things and even the smallest of things cannot be without someone creating them, so how can such a vast universe exist without a creator. That line of reasoning is faulty. There are so many things that we are not sure about that they have a creator. For example, the Earth, Sun, Moon, galaxies, life etc. If you tell those people that we can't be certain that all these things have a creator[maybe these things don't really have a creator] then they'll say God created all those things [Keep in mind, they haven't really proven the existence of God yet because you are still questioning their argument "things cannot exist without a creator" which they used to tell you someone must have created everything]. Since they need to assume that God must have created these things to prove that God exists, that means their argument is only based on assumption. So we can't be sure of whether or not these things do have a creator. We only choose to believe that they do and then that leads us to the conclusion that the creator of everything is God.
  3. Polyamory - The Next Frontier

    I also said 'not discriminating'. Not discriminating would mean you don't treat them any differently. You treat homosexual(and bisexual and others) couples the same as heterosexual ones and you treat homosexual people the same as heterosexual people. He isn't saying anything wrong.
  4. Polyamory - The Next Frontier

    Believing that doing something is morally good and being tolerant and not discriminating towards individuals who do a certain thing are different things. People in the western society are tolerant towards homosexuality and homosexuals but they do not believe that it is morally good to be homosexual. They believe that not being discriminating towards people based on their race, gender, sexual orientation etc. is mortally good.

  8. How to get away with crying as a Shia

    One time I was crying about my life in my room and I thought to myself what if my family comes to my room since I don't really have a lock on my door. So I started thinking what excuse I would give in case someone came and the first one that came to mind was "I got something in my eye" but that's kinda obvious and plus it's used as more of a 'Let's just ignore that' or 'None of your business' than 'I'm not crying'. So I had to dismiss that one. Then it dawned on me, I'm a Shia and my family is Shia. I could just say I was listening to Nohas or listening to Majlis and I'd get away with it!

  13. Committed Zina; 20 year old male.

    Committing zina isn't the only wrong thing you did here. You also cheated on a woman you are committed to and who, as you said, loves you. You broke her trust in you. You never even mentioned anything about telling her. You can repent and feel better about yourself but you also need to do something about the fact that you betrayed her. Don't downplay or ignore that
