  1. hi ernesto

    I am mahdi moarefzadeh from iran.where are you from? i like to be friend with you.please send me email to mmoarefzadeh200@yahoo.com

    I am waiting for your reply.

    best regards.

  2. LOL! This is the coolest thing anyone has ever written about me. It's going on my webpage, I sweartagawd. "I am not a Marxist" - Karl Marx
  3. You're attempting to define God for the world, which is more than a tad hubristic. I define the word as the sum total of all those natural processes which lead me to personal improvement and a more civilized life. (No, I'm not clever enough to come up with that line on the fly, I paraphrase it from Rabbi Mordechai Kaplan, the founder of the reconstructionist movement.) You define God in anthropomorphic terms. If you believe that your definition is more accurate than mine, then it's your prerogative to produce God for examination. ;) Don't necessarily disagree with the closing paragraph. Thanks
  4. That's not really true. I've found every tradition to have a skeptical undercurrent populated by adherents who don't necessarily take the mythology seriously. Salman Rushdie would be a great example of a secular Muslim, as he describes himself as a "dyed in the wool atheist" and in the same sentence professes to "embrace Islam". I'm an atheist, but I'm a Mormon too. I think the mythology of it all is ridiculous, but I like the tradition and practice aspects of it. I know secular Jews and Catholics personally. Most Muslims I know who have abandoned the idea of a literal, personal God have apost
  5. No doubt you'll be waiting with more non-sequtiurs like "gay culture" and "gay science", which you can't define or talk about yourself, despite the fact that they framed the whole thrust (lol) of your rebuttal. Really, go read a book, or play with maranatha! in the sandbox -- she seems about your speed.
  6. Why you have to spoil the fun? Some of us find lunacy entertaining. :) ibn-Rushd is the greatest philosopher the dar al-Islam has ever produced in its 1500 year history, but you skimmed his work in 10 minutes and you have all the rebuttals lined up. I stand in awe! LOLOLOLOLOL!
  7. What is "gay culture"? Ever read this? http://www.muslimphilosophy.com/ir/tt/tt-i.htm Check it out and see what you think.
  8. What is "gay science"? :!!!:
  9. One of the fundamental principles of logic (and I'm surprised anyone who can speak English, and is past adolescence, doesn't understand this innately) is the idea that the burden of proof rests with the accuser, or him who asserts (I'm stealing that phrase verbatim from Rome's 12 tablets, authored in prehistory). It's not up to an atheist to "disprove" God. If I asked you to "disprove" the idea of unicorns, bigfoot or space aliens, you wouldn't be able to do it either. Sure, God might exist, just like Sasquatch. If you're the guy to bring forth the idea, then it's your place to provide some e
  10. When I was in my early 20s I studied Talmud in a semi-serious way. This was one of the most profound little tidbits I had occasion to ponder (let's face it, Talmud is pretty boring stuff for the most part). His name was Bandara (or something similar), and Jesus was said to have been conceived during some rather off-putting circumstances. For the first time I realized just how offensive the New Testament must have been to the more traditional Hebrews when it was first written. All that "synagogue of Satan" stuff must have been pretty disheartening. Talking to this person is probably not going
  11. Most Muslims are treally atheists. That is a fact. I know this from experience aswell.
  12. Catholics worship many, many gods. Mary, for example, has ascended to heaven to reign as the "bride of Christ". In other words, she's the goddess of the heavens and married to her son. It's a rewrite of Oedipus Rex. Then there are the thousands and thousands of saints, which are idolized in churches which Catholics kneel down and pray to, making offerings of money and jewelry. It's actually a holdover from Christianity's pagan roots. Sunday was market day in ancient Rome (there's a reason it's called the ROMAN catholic church) and was the day when people sacrificed to the gods. It's only nat
  13. I think that your devotion to Islam is just a selfish desire to escape the happiness and joy which comes from worshiping Zeus, Apollo, Set, Tammuz and Aprhodite. In a subconscious way your devotion to Allah is really just a selfish and pathetic attempt to deny the true gods. (This is sarcasm of course, but the more discerning of the readers here should be getting the idea.) Thanks, you explained it better than I did. Allah made us atheists. We worship him by devoting ourselves to science and philosophy. http://www.muslimphilosophy.com/ir/index.html
  14. hey brother. how are you these days? haven't heard from you in a long time. hope all is well!

  15. can't blame you for not posting on IF. I can also be found at Islam In View forum if you have the inclination. Cheers...
