Loved them both. Especially the second one..... *waits for hate comments*

What?

Aside from the fact that Dawkins is a demagogue...

Let's assume he's a proper intellectual and his arguments against the existence of God are strong...

If you "love" that book, does that not mean you no longer believe in God? It makes no sense to "love" a treatise on atheism. You could say it was interesting or that it is worth reading for the sake of becoming familiar with a different point of view... but to say that you "loved" it?? I don't even know what to say. You are beginning to enter Al-Afasy / S.hassan / haidar_al_karrar territory, where it is not even worth it to gauge what you are thinking...

If I read a book by Salman Rushdie, does that make me an apostate?

I mean really? Could you have made any more of an ignorant generalisation?

I disagree fully with his core beliefs, however I did agree with many points that he made in the documentary. It does not necessarily mean that I'm inclined towards Atheism just because I may have expressed a love for the film. You can't approach religion half-minded baradar. You and I may hate on atheists all we want, but in the end - he does provide an insight of perspectives, some valid and invalid, which for me, have actually strengthened my beliefs as a Muslim (not an atheist, baradaram!) So relax, I haven't deviated to the dark side.

Right. Loving the documentary makes me an atheist, you said? *sniff*

I don't know what definition of "love" you are going by, but to me -- and I presume, to most of the world -- if you love a documentary, it means the message resonated with you in a very personal way.

Take, for example, the video I posted above. That Zizek documentary. A lot of it resonated with me. I agreed with most of what Zizek said in that documentary. But I would not say I freggin "loved" it, because that implies something more.

And this is even disregarding, remember, that Dawkins is not an academic; it is disregarding that he uses very weak, childish arguments. (Dawkins is no David Hume, that's for damn sure). That's why many non-religious or even anti-religious people are turned off by him; outside of his cult following, he is not really taken all that seriously.

It's like me saying "I love Yasser al-Habib's lectures," and then claiming that I do NOT like to hear grotesque descriptions of you-know-what. That's all Yasser Habib talks about; I can't love his lectures without loving that other thing.

The animations and voices in that movie were too realistic. It was like watching a live action movie...

Made me cry too.

The movie was based on a autobiographic novel by "Seita" (yani the guy who Seita's character was based on).

The guy lived his whole life blaming himself for his sister's death. He wrote the book as a salute to her. Very sad stuff.

So what if it resonates with her in a personal way. Why does it bother you in anyway?

Having your nickname after a fraudster in one of the contraband Iranian movie speaks volume about your movie taste, doesn't it? Do you really think your movie taste are somewhat superior to have given her a lecture about how she should express herself about her movie-watching experience?

It's like me saying "I love Yasser al-Habib's lectures," and then claiming that I do NOT like to hear grotesque descriptions of you-know-what. That's all Yasser Habib talks about; I can't love his lectures without loving that other thing.

That's a dumb analogy. I'm a big fan of horror/slasher flicks.

I don't love to see people getting hack to pieces in real life.

First of all, I don't think you know what contraband means. Look it up.

Secondly, I THINK that by "contraband" you meant illegal. If that is indeed what you meant, then you are wrong. Marmoolak was shown in cinemas. The lead actor (Parviz Parastooi) is famous and well-known in Iran.

Thirdly, how does the above statement even make sense? So the fact that my nickname is taken from a character in a movie, proves that I have bad movie test? Uhhhh... OK? Unless you are saying that the movie is bad, and the fact that I like it proves that I have bad movie test. But I would like you to prove that this movie we are talking about is bad!!! Marmoolak was very well-received in Iran and in the world, so it seems to me that I am not alone in liking it.

Fourthly, why it bothers me is self-evident. Why a Muslim brother or sister should not "love" a treatise on God-hating and antitheism, is self-evident. There is one reason for any of us to read/watch Richard Dawkins, and that's to destroy every one of his recycled arguments. But unfortunately, some of us feel that not lending legitimacy to certain ideas (even if they do not warrant any such lenience), makes them less enlightened or forward-thinking or whatever. If Ostad Motahhari were alive today he would murk Richard Dawkins. He would murder him intellectually. But it doesn't even take a Motahhari to do that. Dawkins is a low-life.
