  1. Start another thread or address the issue! Lester, I don't know what that picture has to do with this thread but it's lovely -she's beautiful.
  2. Problems relating to any drug addiction is always so tragic all around. For the individuals, their families and for society. I read that addicts are already being exploited in Afghanistan. Radicals are using these poor people as suicide bombers. How sad is that? Drug addiction among young people is on the rise worldwide, and perhaps in a search for common ground the world should make a concerted effort to come together to fight this curse.
  3. Instead of claiming mistakes, lies, exaggerations why don't you point them out? No doubt Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a crazy and dangerous man.
  4. Doesn't make sense to make Canada an option and leave out the biggest threat to world peace - IRAN :wacko:
  5. 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.
  6. ^ ^ It has nothing to do with passion, HHH. Did you view the link? :unsure:
  7. 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
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. Watch Fox news for balanced and accurate reporting. :!!!:
  13. ^^ No need to shout. Please type in regular print like everyone else. :)
  14. 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
  15. 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? ;)
  16. 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.
  17. 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?
  18. 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.
  19. How old did you say you were? :wacko: They should consider an age restriction on this forum.
  20. 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:
  21. 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. :)
  22. 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
  23. 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.
  24. 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."
  25. 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.
