  1. Instead of claiming mistakes, lies, exaggerations why don't you point them out? No doubt Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a crazy and dangerous man.
  2. Doesn't make sense to make Canada an option and leave out the biggest threat to world peace - IRAN :wacko:
  3. Thank you Humble and Zufa. This book is a wedding song that honors marriage, presenting the purity and sacredness of love within marriage. That someone would twist and add to the scriptures so as to portray an incestuous pornographic picture is truly one sad person.
  4. ^ ^ It has nothing to do with passion, HHH. Did you view the link? :unsure:
  5. Here's an independant assessment out of Australia about the Tuscon and Zurich studies. It's lengthy but interesting. They have this to say about Doudna's work, "It would appear that Doudna's final proposal, that "the first century CE disappears from Qumran's textual horizon" (1998, p 464) is not justified, either by his discussion of 14C dating, concerning which he has mainly emphasized its uncertainty, or by 14C dating taken in conjunction with paleography and the contents of the Scrolls." http://www.radiocarbon.org/Subscribers/Ful...iering_169.html
  6. This is an outrage! Someone who stoops to such lows to insult another religion, resorting to twisting and adding to scriptures in such an offensive way, has to be one sick individual. It's disgusting!
  7. Iran is a major supporter of world terrorism and it's widely believed they've also given sanctuary to Al Qaeda leaders. If they had nuclear weapons, there is no doubt they would make them available to any Islamic group who wanted them. Additionally, with an idiot for a president, believing that Israel should be wiped out, no doubt he'd supply nukes to any radical group wanting to oblige.
  8. Jarvis, I have learned that some people have a sincere desire to interact and learn. Others don't. They have all the answers. ;) Here's a very interesting site where we can learn what ancient historians had to write about the Essenes. Who they were, how they lived and what they believed. http://members.aol.com/Wisdomway/deadseasc...tm#anchor654210
  9. The Dead Sea Scrolls were most likely written by the Essenes during the period from about 200 B.C. to 68 C.E./A.D. The Essenes are mentioned by Josephus and in a few other sources, but not in the New testament. The Essenes were a strict Torah observant, Messianic, apocalyptic, baptist, wilderness, new covenant Jewish sect. They were led by a priest they called the "Teacher of Righteousness," who was opposed and possibly killed by the establishment priesthood in Jerusalem. http://www.centuryone.com/25dssfacts.html

    Watch Fox news for balanced and accurate reporting. :!!!:
  11. ^^ No need to shout. Please type in regular print like everyone else. :)
  12. Disgusting thing for a political leader to say. It's insulting and demeaning to all women! Just because there is no man in a women's life does not make her incomplete. :angry: Mother Theresa was a perfectly complete human being, or did the same hold true for her? I'm surprised that not one Muslim on this site criticized that sexist comment. Condi Rice graduated from University at the age of 19. Besides piano lessons she was a competitive ice skater when she was in high school. She speaks 4 languages. She was the youngest provost of Stanford University, the first woman and first black to hold this position. She obviously did not need a man in her life to make her a whole human being! SayedMohammed, really! You need to rely on sources other than tabloids for your information. :blink:
  13. Thanks for the explanations, Oldsword81 and AR. We have the same thing in Christianity with all the different denominational beliefs. It's destructive. We must have a few Salafi's on this site, no? ;)
  14. As an Evangelical Christian, I would be totally against an invasion of Israel. It has nothing to do with whether we agree, or not, with what Israel does as much as that we believe God gave the land of Israel to the Jewish people. This is an everlasting covenant between God and the Jewish people and God's wrath will be upon any nation who attacks them in an attempt to take Israel from them. My loyalty is to God first and then to my country.
  15. Is this your belief or does your religion really teach that Jews, Christians, and everyone other than Muslims are heretics and that God won't accept our repentance, and instead will seek to wipe us all off the earth? You also say he's going to do this through wars. Does this mean, since only Muslims are the true followers of God, that Muslims are going to be God's warriors and rid the earth of us vermin?
  16. Just ignore it. I think Wahabbi are Salafi and the Deobandi are probably Taliban but am not sure. I'm interested in learning more and would like to know who they really are and what makes them different from Shia and Sunni and how this has hurt Islam. Thanks.
  17. How old did you say you were? :wacko: They should consider an age restriction on this forum.
  18. Would we not be banned outright for saying this about Ayatollah Khameini and the Muslim faith? Guess it's only non-Muslims who have to play by the rules. :angry:
  19. We're used to it. Protestants get blamed for the crusades and are called crusaders and cross worshippers together with Catholics and all the other sects. :)
  20. The Dead Sea Scrolls generally are considered to have been copied by the Qumran community, identified by most scholars as the Essenes, between the mid-third century BCE (Before Common Era) and 68 CE (Common Era), when the Romans annihilated the Qumran settlement. Their discovery in 1947 by a young Arab shepherd is regarded by many as one of the greatest archaeological finds of all time. Between 1947 and 1960, 11 caves yielded fragments of a total of 800 scrolls untouched for 2,000 years. The parchment and papyrus scrolls are a thousand years older than any previously known Hebrew manuscript of the Hebrew Bible and have been crucial to the understanding of scripture. "The major importance of the new carbon 14 examina- tions is that they suggest dates which are very close to the dates suggested by paleographers," said Emanuel Tov. "Scholars are interested in the newly conducted carbon 14 examinations, as the objectively obtained dates will be applied to the continued study of the texts," he said. The UA team radiocarbon dated the famous Book of Isaiah scroll at between 335 BCE and 122 BCE. Paleogra- phers had dated this scroll at between 150 - 125 BCE. The team also analyzed the commentary on the Psalms (UA radiocarbon dated at between 22 CE and 78 CE); the Messi- anic Apocalypse that paleographers date at 100 BCE to 80 BCE (UA radiocarbon dated at between 35 BCE and 59 CE); the Exodus scroll of the Bible written in ancient Hebrew script that paleographers date at between 100 BCE and 25 BCE (UA radiocarbon tests date it between 159 BCE and 16 CE); and an inscribed round leather patch with holes that was attached to the Exodus scroll. Paleographers date the patch between 50 BCE and 50 CE (UA radiocarbon dated the patch at from 98 BCE to 13 CE). Inscribed patches of this sort have been described in ancient Jewish writings, Tov said. http://www.physics.arizona.edu/physics/public/dead-sea.html
  21. Is it rational to smeer the entire 250,000 American troops in Iraq for what a handful of reservists did at Abu Ghraib? No difference to Muslims saying Jews are apes and pigs, and saying Jews use teenagers blood for Purim pastries, that they were behind 9/11 attacks. When Muslims continue to use the forged documents of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion as truth to blame all the world's problems on the Jews - and using their excuse of Zionism to justify hating the Jews.
  22. People here go on and on about Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib I thought it was time for a reality check. I couldn't look at the video on impaling, it was absolutely shocking! Abu Ghraib pales in comparison. I have seen what Palestinians did to collaborators and what they did to two Jewish immigrants who took the wrong turn. :angry: This same academic campus has for a long time allowed Muslim poison to be spread on their campus against Jews so I guess we can chaulk this up to being "fair and balanced."
  23. Our pastor is an expository preacher with incredible Biblical knowledge and it took him months to get through Revelation. This book is difficult to read and understood by itself. I agree, commentaries will be a tremendous help and reading Daniel and Ezekiel and others will certainly help tie it all together.
  24. The first post was a readers response. Where's the link where Brigitte stated that the average Muslim family has 20 children? She stated Muslim families have more children. Here is a link to an interview with her: http://www.phyllis-chesler.com/db_video.html She was accused of being a racist against Arabs, hence her response. You ignore the content of the article and decide to rather attempt to discredit the writer. If you want to do so by posting one liners she has spoken, why don't you post links so we can get the full story. ;)
  25. WHAT THE ARAB WORLD THINKS By Brigitte Gabriel Brigitte Gabriel is a native of the Arab world and a former news anchor of World News for Middle East Television. She is now a contributing editor of Family Security Matters and founder of American Congress for Truth. During her childhood, radical Islamists destroyed Gabriel's home because she was a Christian. She spent 2-1/2 months in the hospital and then lived under ground for seven years with no electricity and little food. Bridgitt eventually became a news anchor, and later moved to the U.S. where she's a true American success story - own business, husband, two kids, etc. Torture is accepted and even expected in the Arab world. Yes, I know what you're thinking - that's not politically correct in most mainstream media. And you know some nice Arabs who have immigrated to America. But it's the truth in the Arab world. Might makes right. Real men don't eat quiche. They prove their manhood by the way they treat their enemy. After all it's what Muhammad did to the unbelievers - Christians, Jews and Zoroastrians in the Quoran - the 'holy book' allegedly mishandled in Guantanamo prison. Arab Muslim men gain honor by shaming, belittling, abusing and torturing their enemy in the most horrific ways. Just look at how the Palestinians treat so-called collaborators by disemboweling them and hanging them upside down in Manger Square in Bethlehem. Look at the terrorist torture chambers that the coalition forces recently uncovered in Iraq. When people refer to the prisons of Saddam Hussein and his regime they think he is the extreme exception. Not! The truth is his torture tactics are quite the norm in the Arab world. If you want to see torture that is beyond what any Westerner can ever imagine please go to IMPALEMENT. Yes, you read it right, impalement. You'll get a glimpse of what the Arabs do to their own people. As someone who came from the Arab world and knows how they think, it frustrates me to see self-appointed righteous minded politicians and media pundits - oblivious to Arabic culture and thinking - criticizing America's actions at Guantanamo. These are a bunch of al Qaeda jihadists who were captured while bent on killing us - the kaffirs or unbelievers. They laugh watching our government bend over backwards, forwards and sideways trying to appease the critics. The more we stumble over ourselves questioning our goals and tactics, the more they think we are weak and easy to defeat. They smirk because they believe that Americans have demonstrated how stupid and weak they are by caving in to stories about maltreatment of Guantanamo detainees. They are watching our critics in this country and counting on them to embolden the radical Islamic cause and weaken our resolve. Actually, Gitmo is a joke as far as the Arabs are concerned. Prison? You call that a prison? Let me tell you what some of the prisoners call Guantanamo, “Al muntazah al-dini lilmujaheden al Muslimin,” The Religious Resort for Islamic Militants. They are given three halal meals a day in accordance to their religious dictates. How many kosher prisons are there in the Arabic world? None. Jews captured in the Arab world are butchered like those obscene pictures taken in Ramallah during the frenzied slaughter of two Israeli reservists who got lost. Remember the Palestinian man holding his red, Jewish blood dripping hands, high above his head in victory? Remember Nick Berg's head being held high also? Most of these detainees never had three meals a day in their entire life. They are gaining weight, and are living in what they refer to in Arabic as “Al-Jannah,” paradise. They have radio, television, soccer games, air-conditioning, clean clothes, and “servants” - meaning American GIs who wait on them hand and foot. They have Islamic chaplains and are handed Qu'rans, the social hate guide against Infidels, by people so concerned as not to offend that they wear latex gloves and carry the book with two hands. Many Muslims in the Middle East would gladly give up their poverty, dictatorial governments, corrupt leaders and social bondage to enjoy the relative luxuries Guantanamo offers. They have free medical care - better than millions of uninsured Americans and our military men and women serving on the jihadists' battlefield. Some of them who couldn't afford to see an optometrist now have glasses and can see and read their Qu'ran. Others who never had the opportunity to see a dentist now have a free dental plan. It has become such a joke; we even stop interrogations to let them take prayer breaks demanded by their religion.......... http://www.keepingapace.com/blogarchives/w...correctness.php
