  1. Salaam. I think out of most members on ShiaChat, I am probably one of the most aggressive ones when it comes to people making accusations against us, our marajae, our belief system, etc. At the same time, I have had good relations with those who seek to learn rather than preach or criticize. One such person was @Fahad Sani. A very knowledgeable sunni who spent quite a few months on ShiaChat. Him and I went back and forth on quite a few topics and he even listed me as his biggest "competitor" on ShiaChat. He started of politely for the most part but grew more and more frustrated with the knowledge and wisdom displayed by so many SC members. He went from cordial --> aggressive --> abusive to the point that he eventually got banned because his efforts to show us the 'truth' were constantly negated. That is one type of 'attack'. Then there is a type of attack from within. This is where a person claims to be a shia but questions everything shias do in the name of reform but the real attacks are on our beliefs, our marajae, our adherence to the Ahlulbayt. This is an example of one such person who was monitoring SC for 5 years (admitted himself) and finally made an account and first post in Sept 2017: I became suspicious of him when he said he learned a lot from a random shia internet blogger who just happened to live in the Middle East (UAE I think). Recommendation against Shias for celebrating the birth of Imam Ali vs that of the Prophet Comment on a post against Khums and vaguely accused our marajae of corruption. Made another against shias who may fall into the category of either loving Imam Ali (as) too much or too little A topic posed as a question on whether the Prophet is part of his Ahlul Bayt or outside of it Another topic on “Ya Ali Madad” as salutation by some shias. A topic on Ghadeer questioning why Shias celebrate Imam Ali (as) succession as opposed to the completion of the Prophet’s (saw) mission. Topic questioning shias whether Imams were killed or not because of their “unlimited knowledge” While it seems like he is trying to reform shias, when you look closely he is actually attacking our belief in Imamah and trying to drive a wedge between the Prophet (saw) and the Imams (as). Conceptually, his topics may make sense but peel the layers and one can easily realize the game being played. This became most apparent on the last topic created where once again he was questioning shias but really attacking the Imams, their martyrdom and the knowledge bestowed upon them by Allah. I would urge all my SC brothers and sisters to be very aware of the games being played and to thwart the fitna as soon as it arises because most wildfires start with a small spark.
  2. Assalamu alaikum As many are aware, there are many conspiracy theories that the Revolution in Iran was a Western made up conflict because the shah was becoming more nationalist and getting "out of their hands". So they destroyed the regime and made it appear as it was anti-West (just like they are thought to have done with ISIS). I only want Revolution defenders' response to such accusations... I would appreciate if you don't get out of the topic and please reply through rational thinking.
  3. Hi everyone, So I occasionally hear about this fluoridation of public drinking water and how it concerns some people. Ill start by saying, studying water quality is what I do just about on a daily basis, so I figure it wouldnt hurt to give thoughts. So basically, for those who aren't aware of the water fluoridation topic, public water supplies in a number of countries have fluoride additives. This compound by dental professionals is considered to help prevent tooth decay and cavities. Basically, by dental professionals, it is considered to be better for human health. On the other end of the discussion, you have people who feel as though they should have the right to choose what is in their water or not. And if the government has control of water supplies, hypothetically they could harm us if they contaminated the water we drink. Other people go further and propose ideas about fluoridated water and how it harms brain development of people, effectively brainwashing everyone. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- So in studying water, most countries have environmental standards. Regulations that say, you cannot have X concentration of Y in the water you drink. If Y concentrations were discovered, you would typically have to shut down that water supply and clean it up. These standards are developed through referencing fluoride related research and its harmful affects. So there are a few questions I am seeking to shed light on in this topic. 1) What amount of Fluoride is harmful to us? 2) What Standards are in place for Fluoride? 3) What amount of Fluoride is our country supplying to us? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1) What amount of Fluoride is harmful to us? http://www.cdc.gov/fluoridation/safety/nas.htm https://www.nhmrc.gov.au/_files_nhmrc/file/your_health/fluoridation/20160824_evidence_report_final_1.pdf http://ehp.niehs.nih.gov/1104912/ So I took three documents of a number I've looked through, noted above. Everyone is free to add or reference their own. But it may help to simply have a read through them if anyone is interested. Most expansive studies appear to reach similar conclusions. Those conclusions being that higher concentrations of fluoride can harm human health and brain development, typically in children (lower body mass equates to greater affects of smaller concentrations of fluoride). Everyone is free to read the conclusions of each document and to make what they wish of them. Just out of curiosity, I did a lay persons statistical analysis of data provided in the Harvard study and derived my own conclusions from it. Basically, if anyone understands, I calculated upper and lower confidence limits of both harmful concentrations of fluoride and non harmful concentrations, then removed statistical outliers to try to give a more accurate conclusion to the data that harvard is providing. These being based on Table 1 of their research paper. Basically, and this is just my personal messing around and is by no means a conclusion of a greater value than any greater scientific organization, but... The mean concentration of fluoride in drinking water that is considered safe is 0.89 mg/L. The mean concentration of fluoride in drinking water that is considered harmful is 3.08 mg/L I would suspect that if you drink public water with a concentration of fluoride greater than 3.08 mg/L regularly throughout your life, you may be harmed. Again this is more of a lay interpretation of data. Its just me spending a half hour playing with numbers and isnt exactly an in depth analysis. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2) What Standards are in place for Fluoride? 3) What amount of fluoride is currently being supplied to us? This question comes down to what country you live in. If you live here in the US, each state is going to have its own standards that are applicable to EPA regulations. Currently the EPA is proposing fluoridation at 0.7 mg/L. Which is lower than the mean concentration of fluoride in of statistically safe drinking water, as per the above referenced studies. Also, there are state regulatory limits. In New York, just as an example, there is a regulatory limit of 2.2 mg/L fluoride in public water supplies. This means that, public water is regularly monitored, and should there be greater than 2.2 mg/L fluoride discovered in your public water, they will shut the water supply down until they treat the water. New York actually has some of the cleanest drinking water in the US. So basically, if you live in the US, youre likely safe in regards to fluoride in public drinking water. If you drink natural water from the earth in your own private supply well, that is a different story, however, public supply wells in most states are regulated themselves by municipalities, so even if you went to a local park, your water is likely fine. Also, so far as I am aware, even with the installation of a potable water well for private use, youre still required to demonstrate safe drinking water quality before you can legally use your well. I have stuff to do today, so I guess ill leave the topic at that for now.
  4. http://news.sky.com/story/1098701/bilderberg-2013-at-watfords-grove-hotel http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/10102168/Bilderberg-Group-No-conspiracy-just-the-most-influential-group-in-the-world.html The elusive and secretive Bilderberg group is convening a meeting at the Grove Hotel in Watford, UK from the 6th to the 9th of June, hosting a wide range of dignitaries ranging from political leaders to experts from industry, finance, academia and the media; generally, a forum for important policy making giants from around the world. It is a private event, therefore no journalists are allowed in and security is absurdly tight and strict. The whole problem is that this important gathering is not minuted, completely undocumented. Conspiracy theories are spawned due to this, it naturally raises suspicions. "We Are Change" Youtube channel conspiracy posse have been posting vlogs, updating on the situation and interviewing people, trying to get to the bottom of it all. However, this is a briefing from the official website detailing the topics of discussions. http://www.bilderbergmeetings.org/meeting_2013.html It makes me wonder, surely if the Bilderberg group are as ominous as the conspiracy theorists make them out to be, they wouldn't publicly share the outlines of their discussions? Apparently, the reason why the ordinary folk are restricted from access witnessing the debate / discussion is to give the people in positions of authority the ability to speak candidly without anything they say becoming fodder for the media. I see how this is justified since, allegedly, no policy decisions are made. But how do we know? The conspiracy theorists deem Bilderberg folk the puppeteers of the puppets. Do you think it's complete baloney, that Bilderberg are completely normal? Or is there something more to it than meets the eye?
