  1. I'm not sure that I believe that 1% number. It doesn't sound much like ideas suggested by Bill Gates and his plans with Terrapower.
  2. I read that some 13,000 people have been detained as a low estimate.
  3. "investigation into the scandal led to a series of arrests of powerful individuals at the heart of the British establishment, including former government advisor, Desmond Smith, former director of Government Relations at 10 Downing Street, Ruth Turner and former chief fundraiser for the Labour party, Lord Michael Levy." Meanwhile in other countries corrupt politicians don't get arrested and instead crush their opponents with an iron fist.
  4. I met someone from ShiaChat once. It was quite the wild ride! Certainly unforgettable, and certainly without regret. Though I'm not sure I'd roll the dice again.
  5. There should be an 'informative" post rating option. Thanks @hasanhh
  6. Anyone who has a photograph of a face can Photoshop it onto a nude body, pretty effectively and with little to no skill/training. The only real way to avoid something like this would be to go full niqab, Saudi style. Is this what you're suggesting? Or do you think the face is ok to show?
  7. All industries are poorly managed before they're invested in and developed. Out of curiosity though, where did you get your 1% number? Is this the percentage proposed by bill gates in his planned reactor? A lot of people bash on things like nuclear reactors and forms of green energy like solar and wind, suggesting inefficiencies. Well, were cars particularly efficient when they were first developed? These technologies have a long way to go and much development to undertake yet.
  8. Is there something wrong with the idea of using nuclear waste as fuel?
  9. I remember when Syrian protests started out peacefully and people insisted that Assad would hold fair elections and would step down. Will Iraq's protests end differently? I still can't help but wonder, are radicals like IS produced by oppressive and corrupt governments, or are oppressive and corrupt governments produced by radicals?
  10. I was thinking the same thing. It would be awkward for me to see a Canadian police vehicles here in the US. Not sure why it would be normal for Iranian patrol vehicles to be in Iraq. Even if the vehicles were transportation regulators, it would be strange.
  11. Where did you read that uyghurs commonly acts as terrorists? The west is certainly guilty of it, but I come to find that whenever people disagree with a group of Muslims, the go-to is to just associate them with terrorists and that clears way for justified oppression. Have a problem with protests in Syria or Iraq? Well, just associate them with terrorists. Have a problem with YPG or Kurds? Well you know the deal. Uyghurs? Add them to the list. Protestors in Yemen? Saudi Arabia knows the deal. Yet in each scenario, we have innocent people intermingled and being taken advantage of.
  12. I was simply describing what was stated in the book of Mark. I understand that in Islam, Prophets and Imams did not die for our sins, and yes, I understand the view of intercession in Islam as well.
  13. Those commies are at it again. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/inside-chinese-camps-thought-detain-million-Muslim-uighurs-n1062321 First they control our education, then they control our career...now they control our identity.
  14. In the quoted passage, Jesus not only healed the paralytic, but Jesus accomplished a greater feat in providing a means for salvation, which is something that no other Prophet could do.
  15. I just want to add mark 2 1:12 in the discussion. In verse 10, Jesus uses the phrase "son of man" is used, yet it's used in a divine context. "Know that the Son of Man Has authority on Earth to forgive sins". And in this scenario, Jesus not only heals the paralytic, but he accomplishes something that no other man could do and he forgives the sins of that man. (Verses 5-12). Fully human? Yes. However in scripture Jesus also performs actions that no other man nor Prophet could perform. In full: A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that he had come home. 2 They gathered in such large numbers that there was no room left, not even outside the door, and he preached the word to them. 3 Some men came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them. 4 Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on. 5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” 6 Now some teachers of the law were sitting there, thinking to themselves, 7 “Why does this fellow talk like that? He’s blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?” 8 Immediately Jesus knew in his spirit that this was what they were thinking in their hearts, and he said to them, “Why are you thinking these things? 9 Which is easier: to say to this paralyzed man, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up, take your mat and walk’? 10 But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on Earth to forgive sins.” So he said to the man, 11 “I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home.” 12 He got up, took his mat and walked out in full view of them all. This amazed everyone and they praised God, saying, “We have never seen anything like this!”
