    King reacted to iCenozoic in Charles Darwin & God   
    This is logical inconsistency. To suggest that evolution is plausible up until the discussion involves mankind. 
    Either you accept the science or you reject the science. You can't logically accept it for all life forms, then just reject it for humanity, because the justifications for evolution of all life forms, are identical.
    I mean, I guess you can believe whatever you want, but such ways of thinking are...non-scientific  and maybe even philosophically inconsistent as well.
    It's like accepting gravity for objects on Earth and accepting gravity up until it relates to objects in space, then rejecting gravity with respect to stars, just because someone has a belief that stars are different. Even though nothing to anyone's knowledge evidently demonstrates that stars are unique and not subject to gravity. There is no physical mechanism or anything unique about stars that would make them not subject to gravity just like everything else.
    Either you accept gravity or you don't. And if you don't accept evolution on the grounds that you feel it contradicts the Qur'an, that's ok. But if that's the case, I would not bother accepting evolution of any other life either. Because the evidence is all the same.
    Anyway, I guess there's not much more to say here, all the best.

    What else is new here? Individuals gain a following and start talking authoritatively and arrogantly about every topic that is the flavour of the day.  It is not a layman vs an expert issue, it is just a general tendency to avoid careful research most of these complex issues deserve.

    This isn't exclusive to non Muslims.  You will find just as many if not more judgemental people with weak morals who are Muslims.  As Notme mentioned insecure individuals tend to congregate on such internet platforms and their toxicity just feeds off one another.

    King reacted to Ibn Al-Ja'abi in What do you study or have a degree in and what is your work?   
    Salams,
    I study life sciences at university but I don't really have an interest in it at all. It was more because my family wanted me to do medicine but I've decided against it myself. My own interests are in history, religious studies, codicology, philosophy, and philology. I especially enjoy Near Eastern studies which include, among other things Islamic studies. I've been trying to take courses as electives more in line with my own interests, history and religious studies ones of course but took Biblical Hebrew and Latin in this school year that just ended as well as a few other things on my own, planning on taking Ancient Greek in the fall when I'll have my final year. In the future I'd like to do graduate studies in one of the above subjects, I've been speaking to a professor about how it would be to apply to do a masters in Semitic philology in the future, I've been attracted to epigraphy for the past few years. I really do wish that when I was in high school I could have known about these things which now interest me, but often you're just presented with one of the STEM fields or business. A pity, but I'm glad I got to discover these things. Not sure how life will turn out or if I'll be able to get to do graduate studies but I'd like to be a teacher.

    The attempt to use vague Verses and hadith to prove scientific theories and scientific facts has always fallen short.
    Muslims need to remember their book isn't a scientific textbook.

    King got a reaction from Ruqaya101 in Marital rape and Islam   
    What is the Islamic punishment for a man who forecfully has sex with his wife after she denies him sex on a particular occassion?  Assume in this case there are no bruises or physical marks present. Also assume that it is established beyond any doubt that the sex was forced, through confession or other means.  I don't think this is even considered rape in Islam but in any case, what is the punishment? Proper Islamic sources would be appreciated, not personal opinions.

    There have always been people with homosexual urges in extremely conservative societies devoid of Western influence.  There is no conclusive evidence to suggest it is all or even primarily social conditioning.  I grew up in an extremely conservative environment in Pakistan and I knew young kids with homosexual tendencies who were socially conditioned to be totally averse to such tendencies.

    King got a reaction from Abu Nur in Zina and why it’s haram   
    Technically it is halal to sleep around with multiple partners as long as you follow proper Islamic guidelines.  It is true that women with past relationships are perceived negatively but that is a cultural problem for the most part, they shouldn't by default be judged harshly.  Such attitudes make it very difficult for eligible good practicing Muslims to marry again.  It is reasonable to be a bit suspicious of someone who has had a really high number of sexual partners, but we really should reserve judgement unless we know the details.  As for non Muslims, most of them do not have more than 30-40 sexual partners, the average tends to be less than 10.
    Just to put things in perspective, as far as Islam is concerned, a woman that has had 10 sexual partners (through halal means) and doesn't backbite is morally superior to a woman that is a virgin but backbites times to time, all other things held equal.

    No one is defending people committing Zina, but I for instance replied to your logic that did not make sense.
    All your thread has no logic. And stop painting out as if non-Muslims are sl*ts and our Muslim girls are so pious, sitting at home innocently. 
    This thread is full of ignorant connotations. This is proof of how the Muslim communities living in the West and Europe have no clue whats so ever about what happens around them. Thats why Muslim communities living in Europe and United States will never evolve, because they keep going backwards.
