The Truth about Faith

The natural realm is the universe and everything in it. The supernatural realm is, by definition, outside the natural realm, so nobody knows, or can know, anything whatsoever about the supernatural. The natural realm is physical; evidence for it is literally everywhere. The supernatural realm is pure conjecture and absolutely unsupported by physical evidence of any kind. The supernatural is, therefor, not scientifically testable.



However, supernatural claims… Continue

Eight years later

from Not My God



Tomorrow is the eighth anniversary of the worst terrorist attack in history. For many, the events of September Eleventh strengthened their belief in god– for some, in an angry, vengeful god, and for others, a kind, loving god. Others, still, wouldn’t retain their faith in the aftermath of the tragedy. Some of you may be among them.



It is probable that Richard Dawkins wrote the God Delusion and… Continue

The God(s) of Abraham?

So, who is the god of Abraham? Is it Yahweh, God, or Allah? Or, are they all simply one in the same?



It depends on how you define things. The Christian god is supposed to be the same god as Allah, but obviously you can’t actively believe they are all one in the same. Why? Because of the differences of laws, beliefs, and the judgments those gods are involved in. A Christian is not going to look at the things attributed to Allah, such as the prophet Muhammad and the insistence that… Continue

Militant Islam: So Thick You Can Spread It With a Sword

This story from BBC News (copied here for your convenience), saves the punchline for last; and I quote:

The sect said it was fighting against Western education and believed Nigeria's government was being corrupted by Western ideas.

It wanted to see Islamic law imposed across the country.

It's…

Crime, punishment and Mr Khan

Some sections of officialdom show common sense when it comes to appeasement, or lack of it, of unreasonable religious demands.



There’s this Muslim geezer in Birmingham, UK, who wants special dispensations on his community service – a punishment handed out after he was racist to an Irish policeman and harassed a judge – because… Continue

Ban the Burqa by Mona Eltahawy

Ban the Burqa

Thursday, July 2nd, 2009



By Mona Eltahawy



International Herald Tribune



NEW YORK — I am a Muslim, I am a feminist and I detest the full-body veil, known as a niqab or burqa. It erases women from society and has nothing to do with Islam but everything to do with the hatred for women at the heart of the extremist ideology that preaches it.



We must not sacrifice women at the altar of political correctness or in the name of fighting a… Continue

Honor attack in UK: acid poured down lover's throat

Muslim woman fears death in an honor killing after her lover was attacked with sulphuric acid. These killings, as we have documented here, happen again and again in an Islamic context -- yet the Daily Mail here attempts to give the impression that they happen all over the place.



Yet if they do happen in Hindu and Sikh communities, and among Christians (a more fanciful claim), the frequency is much greater among Muslims -- not least because there is Islamic legal sanction…

Where are the feminists, when women are suffering in the burqa?

Where are the feminists when you need them? Why are they not asserting themselves over the question of the burqa, and how it dehumanises women?



Pat Condell asks just that question in his entertaining video embedded below.… Continue

Religious fanatics have been jailed for an attack on the UK home of a publisher. His “crime”? He dared to want to publish a novel about Aisha, the child bride of the Islamic prophet, Muhammad.

Islam and inverted intolerance: Sarkozy and anti-burqa campaign

The following, clipped from the DNAIndia.com news site, is a revealing glimpse of the abject incompatibility between Islamic and Western values.

Who is more stupid(or more dangerous) pope or Muslim mullahs?

most times when I compare Christianity with Islam I found it less dangerous and more tolerate-able . but some times priests and the Pope change my mind !

take a look at this New York Times article (his first statement about condoms)

Pope Says Condoms Make AIDS Problem Worse

here at least in Iran mullahs have no problem with condoms or other birth control methods or STD prevention .

In The UK; Many Young Muslims Support Suicide Bombing New Poll Reveals

More reasons to get rid of religion:



It is often argued by "moderate Muslims" that the Qur'aan and Islam do not teach nor promote hate and terrorism and those who do so are not real Muslim; They are just common criminalizes. However, that is not true. Allah and the Qur'aan promote killing other people whom they termed 'non-believers'. Allah himself gave these Muslims the license to kill dis-believers. According to the Qura'an translated by M.H.Shakir, in Sura 47:4, and I quote… Continue

Girls Can Marry At 9 say Fatwa From Morocco

More reasons to get rid of religion.



In Morocco a Salafi preacher name Mohamed Al-Maghrawi issued a "Fatwa" that permits girls 9-years-old to marry.

Interisting, why is the "Fatwa" or the author of the "Fatwa" saying that they 'permits' these babies to marry. You can't permit a baby to marry. A 9-year-old have no idea of what marriage is and mean. How do you let these babies know that you gave them the permission to marry? Do you go to them saying here is the "Fatwa" we… Continue

Pagan's Retake Parthenon-Briefly



When I was a young student in school studying ancient mythology, I always loved the fanciful tales and colorful characters, but couldn’t help but wonder why we call ancient Roman and Greek religious practices mythology and ancient Christian practices religion. If Christianity had not had such a powerful or successful PR machine behind it, we might all still be praying to Athena and worshiping Zeus, and the world’s few remaining pagans might not… Continue

Honour Killing: Child Killed after Converting to Christianity

Honour Killing is generally defined as the murder of a female member of a family by the family, when they (and maybe the wider community) believe her to have brought dishonor upon them. A woman can be targeted commonly for: refusing an arranged marriage, being the victim of a sexual assault, seeking a divorce—even from an abusive husband—or committing adultery. Basically, these killings result from the perception that defense of the "family honor" justifies killing a woman whose behavior… Continue
