Do your five prayers a day bring flourishing of all men and women? Does your god require beheadings and stonings as retribution? Do you think your god is the answer for all of us when we see the atrocities committed in your god's name?
I believe in free speech, freedom of individuals to pursue their self-interests as long as they do not infringe on another's rights to freedom. If there is a god, it would not look anything like yours. Spreading your god, using violence as the means, looks more like cancer to me. Your notions of god sound like a virus that spreads through sick ideas and diseased processes.
Take your god off this site. I am an atheist and I do not want to read your malignant ideas.
We need thumbs up buttons.
Anyway, if there were thumbs up buttons here I'd click it for you Joan.
Thank you Leveni.
@Joan.....Excellent reply.....Not sure how he was even allowed on this site...
He's not. Report him. I'm about to.
Huseyin, the veracity of the Quran depends, to a degree, upon the veracity of the biblical Old Testament. As this has been shown by modern scholarship & archeology to be mostly mythical it is evident that the Quran also contains myth & legend.
The Quran is reputed to be the work of one man, Mohamed, compiled 20 years after his death in 632 BCE. The oldest datable Quran, the Sana text from Yemen, is dated to 750 BCE. It shows evidence of redaction & is partially at variance with the current version.
Even if the Quran was was the work of one man, as in the case of Epistles of Paul, we have only his word for it. There is no way to verify Mohamed's claim that the angel Gabriel actually spoke to him. Furthermore, we have no scientific evidence for the existence of angels or any other supernatural entity.
Consequently I find even the most sophisticated Islamic apologetics totally unconvincing. As with Christian & Jewish defences of the faith you are using a claim to back up a claim. If you are going to convince me of anything you are going to have to provide scientific evidence to back up your assertions. Good luck with this as nobody has managed to do it so far.
I'm thinking there must be another version of the Holy Quran that you are keeping hidden from the world, because most of what you have written isn't in the Holy Quran.
Also I doubt you are from Turkey. You sound like you are from Pakistan or India. Or maybe you are just quoting from a Pakistani or Indian preacher.
Also, Islam prohibits proselytizing.
If you really are a Muslim, I hope you read these 2 extracts from the Holy Quran and think about them.
Anyway, I don't think you are going to last long here.
These ramblings come from a book called "The Flashes Collection" By Said Nursi (1877-1960)
Not that it matters or that I care, just for the sake of openness.
