  1. O.K. let me change what i said. I know that alot of discrimination happens against women in muslim societies... but it stems from a sense of 'protectionism.' Though definately it seems womens rights are in order, living in America, i dont think they would want to be like the filth over here. I mean this country has completely fallen apart. I don't think Americans should be talking about rape. This country is the rape and decadence capital of the world. I doubt the 'terrorists' are targeting women, thats complete b.s. Only the proud marines target 11 year old girls.
  2. Still disagree... Buddhists believe in 'NO' god. There is a oneness, but that is what binds humanity and all sentient beings together and we all are a part of it. In Islam, god is seperate from us and a distinct entity and created us. I don't see the link, other than if you argue that any belief in a universal power, transends to a belief in islam. I still see it very very very different. Islam in my humble experience, seems alot like the jewish religion, or the christian old testament.
  3. I wouldn't say that the Jews calling themselves the "chosen people" nowdays would be as narrow-minded as telling other people that they are going to hell. I am sure that there were Jews who believed that they were "superior" to other people. But at least in modern Judaism, "chosen people" just means that God chose to give the Torah to the Jews. It doesn't (or at least it shouldn't) carry a rascist idealogy--it just means that God chose the Jews over the other nations to reveal his Law. Shalom. Judaism, believes that jews are the chosen people, but they say that the best among all the nations
  4. Well, the military constitutes a small portion of this countries population. Have met a lot of smart people here in the U.S. as well. Haha.. my limited english.. this is what happens when you chat for excessive periods of time. You start to use chat lingo. Im not Arab, dont speak arabic. websites restricted? Nah, really couldnt careless about this country. I mean there is money here to be made, and there are nice people. But when you start to think about the native americans, and what happened to them, then all sense of guilt evaporates. I love it when European Americans get all possessi
  5. I'm not muslim, but if it makes you happy Ayatollah Khameini... Yes, but he is the all powerful 'Supreme' leader who controls everything in Iran. So he does bear full responsibility for whatever happens there. If he isn't a policeman, then that Texan from Crawford isnt a war criminal. Riiiiite.... so lets all forget about it. Anyone who disagrees gets tortured in prison, and they use all the SAVAK methods (e.g. tying wires to the genital and giving electric shocks to political opponents and student dissidents). Well, i think the Shah did alot of torturing and killing, and basically went ag
  6. Resigned, Just when i started likeing you after reading all your posts. One thing good about muslims, is that atleast they have some respect for women, unlike americans. I dont buy any such report, and it would be a strike to any sense of decency these people have left.
  7. Fresh perspective, I think they guy choose to join the marines, and if he was willing to kill Iraqi's then Iraq's should have the right to kill him. Though his death did seem gruesome, it was the americans that started the whole round with Abu Graib. Though there are foreign jihadists in Iraq, most of the resistance fighters are loyal iraqis' that want to end the occupation. Trust me the occupation will continue, as long as the puppet governmetn survives. I dont know about anybody going straight to heaven. But i believe that they are fighting a just war to liberate their country. You s
  8. Do you guys actually like this khameini guy. I heard that he locks up people who disagree with him. I heard alot of Iranians who fought in the overthrow of the shah are being shot by the Iranian secret police for disagreeing with religious scholars. To tell you the truth, this guy seems to act alot like the shah. Kill anyone who disagrees with you. I heard people call him shah khameini. No offense, i guess he's a religious leader, but isnt it wrong to kill people who you simply disagree with. I heard that the SAVAK (the shahs secret police) used to behave in the same way, detaining and tort
  9. There are too many differences, between islam and buddhism. Buddhism's first question, is why do we exist, and what is the meaninof existance, while islam starts off with the premise, of "is there god". Buddha disavowed the existance of god in any form. My personal opinoin is that Buddhism and Hinduism (eastern religions) are too far removed from western religions (judaism, christianity,islam) for any such claim. I like eastern religions, kinda like 'live and let live'. Western religions can never live in peace, and will never let others live in peace. ^_^ Well there's my two cents
  10. I think ignorance like... is why there is so much hindu muslim violence in india. Hindus are very peaceful people. They dont disturb anybody, and every religion they have had contact with, they have welcomed and learned from them. This is true of sikhs, buddhist, jains etc. But when they came into contact with islam, they tried to be friendly. But islam is a very intolerent religion, and they are very hostile to other religions. Thus, millions of hindus were slaughtered and more were forced to convert. In northern india you will not find a hindu temple over 1000 year old, mainly because the mu
  11. Buddha is not a prophet muslim prophet... :angry: :angry: Buddhists are peace loving people... Leave Buddha out of this... he doesnt bother you, you dont bother him... But, since you are muslims, i know this is too much to ask. :(
  12. S***.. Haq haq.. i thought you meant proof,, and now you say just arguments... damn.. i take my vote back.. im the only one who voted for yes... I TAKE MY VOTE BACK!!!!!!!!!
  13. Ahh lets see... You guys have to tell me what (saw) means.. really want to know. In my opinion. Nothing is eternal. Yes, some things are dependant on others, but they in turn change, adapt and mold. If one thing is sure, then that is nothing is eternal, and everything is subject to change. Even the Universe. It was kind of a confusing quote. Smart man Mohammed, especially for back in the stone ages debating philosophy and the existance of the universe. ^_^
  14. Do you really believe, that atheists are the ones bothering other people about their religios belief? seriously think about what you are saying? Is it atheists that go dividing people on the basis of of their beleifs, and dividing the world into believers and non-believers? I think you know the answer... so be true to yourself. Is this the quote from 'imam ali' about the camel dung and donkey dung, proving the existance of god? (im not being sarcastic, i think another thread in this section raises this point.) No, I cant proof that god doesnt exist. I dont think any human would be able to.
  15. I’ll offer a personal perspective. Having explored religion, I read books on many religious faiths but found them all lacking. I found them all deceitful. I felt empty and dis-satisfied with all of them. Nothing changed. Smiling on the outside, unfulfilled on the inside. One year. Two years, three years. Heard all the nice things about god that others say. God is love. God is justice. God is mercy. God's ways are not our ways, etc. Read the bible over and over, doubt growing stronger every day. Ignored the "corruption of man" per how the specific religious stuff was happening-- of course reli
