  1. Do Shias respect Christians?

    Letter 53: An order to Malik al-Ashtar Written1 for (Malik) al-Ashtar an-Nakha'i, when the position of Muhammad ibn Abi Bakr had become precarious, and Amir al-mu'minin had appointed al- Ashtar as the Governor of Egypt and the surrounding areas; https://www.al-islam.org/nahjul-balagha-part-2-letters-and-sayings/letter-53-order-malik-al-ashtar ***** Quran Surah 3: Verse 61 Event of Mubahalah

  4. Age of the Unkown Universe. https://map.gsfc.nasa.gov/universe/uni_age.html https://www.nasa.gov/audience/forstudents/5-8/features/nasa-knows/what-is-a-black-hole-58.html estimate/guesstimate of the age of the KNOWN Universe( Not THE Universe(s)) is mentioned above and the ways they estimate/guesstimate it. It assumes two things that we are able to see ALL(Stars) and the second is Expansion. There may be regions so far and so concealed that light can't escape- Oldest Stars may not be even visible or detectable. So this guesstimate of the age can't be taken as the Gospel Truth. Just a moving Target . Absent these two assumptions outlined above: Age of OUR/KNOWN Universe(*) can't be determined. (*) If this is the only universe(what ever is our current understanding of this word.)Are we(Our Known Universe) part of a Bigger System, and just a Tree in the Forrest.

  5. Predestination

    لَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا رُسُلَنَا بِالْبَيِّنَاتِ وَأَنْزَلْنَا مَعَهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْمِيزَانَ لِيَقُومَ النَّاسُ بِالْقِسْطِ ۖ وَأَنْزَلْنَا الْحَدِيدَ فِيهِ بَأْسٌ شَدِيدٌ وَمَنَافِعُ لِلنَّاسِ وَلِيَعْلَمَ اللَّهُ مَنْ يَنْصُرُهُ وَرُسُلَهُ بِالْغَيْبِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ قَوِيٌّ عَزِيزٌ {25} [Pickthal 57:25] We verily sent Our messengers with clear proofs, and revealed with them the Scripture and the Balance, that mankind may observe right measure; and He revealed iron, wherein is mighty power and (many) uses for mankind, and that Allah may know him who helpeth Him and His messengers, though unseen. Lo! Allah is Strong, Almighty. ***** https://www.al-islam.org/nahjul-balagha-part-2-letters-and-sayings/selections-sayings-and-preaching-amir-al-muminin-ali#hadith-n-78-predestination ***** Cut through the Noise/distraction/wrapping and this This Argument of Predestiantion. Negates Justice/Prophethood/Guidance/Day of Judgement. Essentially Non belief in "The God".

    I am going to focus on the issue at hand, instead of any other distraction at this point in time. . You have been informed as you have asked. Its your prerogative to understand or reject. ***** Now lets talk about your desires and expectations. 1)What do you expect from your ideal/created god your desire. 2)List the things you would like this ideal/created god to have to your satisfaction. 3)And properly articulate the purpose of your creation by this created god. 4) also define your relation to this created god, who is who- who should judge who, on what basis and provide a logical and intellectual argument for it.
  8. Static/Expanding/Cyclical/Oscillating Universe What are the implication for All “Hypothesis” which are called Scientific Theory(Biological/Cosmological etc..) under each condition? 1) Static Known Universe Pre 1930’s No Beginning for Known Universe/humans. (*) 2) Expanding Known Universe post 1930’s Big Bang/ Darwinism-Beginning of things /evolution (**) 3) Oscillating/Cyclical Known Universe Expanding/collapsing -ours can be the first or the Nth in the series 4) All of the Above and Unknown states All is Relative to our Time and Period/Age and it’s a Mirage. In an Expanding Universe Model, there will be a point in time in the far future when we will be so far away that the ( people who study things around us)Scientists of that time will only assume that we are all alone and there is nothing else out there. They will come up with a Steady state Theory, and will back it up with physical evidence. Its All Relative/Transient. (Works only for that time and period) Can any Theory be taking as Absolute or even true Or it's all a Transient /Relative thing ? So, why do you believe in one of the above Hypothesis and what evidence you have to back it up. ***** Ref: (*) http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/235052378-the-delusions-of-atheists/?page=4&tab=comments#comment-3103382 (**) http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/235048597-think-out-of-the-box-universehumansequoia/
  9. The Delusions of Atheists

    http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/235052378-the-delusions-of-atheists/?page=4&tab=comments#comment-3103828 In addition to the above Delusion. My understanding, based on what I read and hear(Correct me, if there is flaw in my understanding of your basic/fundamental premise). Atheists/Agnostics/Humanists/Secularist whoever is of the opinion that We the Humans, will independently find the Truth through our (" Limited/Relative " )Intellectual struggle( Study of things - i.e “Science”) on our own and be free. There is an issue with this Concept, It run contrary to the Darwinian theory of evolution as the goal/directive of the Natural selection process which is not to search/understand the “Truth” but Survival. Human mind serves evolutionary success not the "Truth". So, either I have this wrong, so provide correction or how do you reconcile this apparent basic/fundamental contradiction in these concepts?

    [Pickthal 2:30] And when thy Lord said unto the angels: Lo! I am about to place a viceroy in the earth, they said: Wilt thou place therein one who will do harm therein and will shed blood, while we, we hymn Thy praise and sanctify Thee? He said: Surely I know that which ye know not. [Pickthal 2:31] And He taught Adam all the names, then showed them to the angels, saying: Inform Me of the names of these, if ye are truthful. [Pickthal 2:32] They said: Be glorified! We have no knowledge saving that which Thou hast taught us. Lo! Thou, only Thou, art the Knower, the Wise. [Pickthal 2:33] He said: O Adam! Inform them of their names, and when he had informed them of their names, He said: Did I not tell you that I know the secret of the heavens and the earth? And I know that which ye disclose and which ye hide. [Pickthal 2:34] And when We said unto the angels: Prostrate yourselves before Adam, they fell prostrate, all save Iblis. He demurred through pride, and so became a disbeliever.
