    Hmm, why do you say that about her?

    The reliability of Christian and Muslim texts compared

    You've finally said something that I do agree with you on. I do agree with you, however it does not make it so that our empirical observations are wrong just because of this. It's that there are massive flaws in your theology if you believe there is some kind of separation point between "God...

    Left vs Right dichotomy

    Yes very much. It manifests practically as mashups of buzzwords and irrational presumptions (wherein that whole 'virtue-signaling' phenomena is, as well). As for education, yeah it is very bubblewrapped, sugarfied, insanity in almost every way. Aside from the very fact the education doesn't even...

    Left vs Right dichotomy

    Precisely. This is why imho, it requires circumventing the fallacious dichotomy set up for us. By doing so proper things related to the issues we see in the political/social/economic (et al) world can be discoursed in a way in which the key concerns themselves take priority over empty...

    Popular Secular Artists & their Jesus Shift

    And of course he's infamous for being an egomaniac with a god-complex at the same time. It's a strange world afterall. I was suprised to find out the other day (when I heard of this) that his wife Kim (yea, her) also happens to be a self-claimed "Christian". It's just....weird....

    Popular Secular Artists & their Jesus Shift

    I agree, it's very strange. These people don't seem very Christian orientated, even on a basic level.

    Left vs Right dichotomy

    I always find it amusing that people focus so much on the "Left vs Right" part of the political axis rather than the rest of it (such as authoritarian vs libertarian etc, which goes both left and right on each for example). There is far more on the political spectrum than just the left/right...

    The reliability of Christian and Muslim texts compared

    No Manama is just saying that God created the Universe :) Scientific theories are based off empirical observation and prediction, among other things. What Manama is saying is that these observations about the objective universe are in fact not in any way contradictory to the Muslim perspective...

    O'Brother Assad

    Salaam, No sister, I didn't say that. :) Yep he was an asset, he was clearly a scapegoat for 9/11 and the rest. I agree.

    O'Brother Assad

    Salaam bro, Ah, yea, Lat. There's a verse in the Holy Qur'an that addresses it: The early Arab pagan stuff is indeed a very interesting topic, nonetheless.

    Women who rebel..in Saudi Arabia

    That's the whole point of my post though, if it's "done out of fear" then they are completely lacking an understanding of why they're doing it in the first place. Like you should know by now though, I don't hold a particularly favorable view towards Saudi itself. Although this case is clearly an...

    What other religions do we have on this forum?

    I definitely agree, it's much needed in places like this. Yes Shinto is incredibly interesting. I've read several of their sacred texts over the years, including their famous "Kojiki" and seen some of their ceremonies. It is a religion that has quite a unique spiritual vibrancy. Besides that...

    “Whosoever”

    First off, I will say Robin that I appreciate your attitude and general worldview more than any of the others I have encountered here. You speak from a view I very much relate to in many ways. Not identical but very relateable. There are two basic things from this quote here: 1. Is God is...

    ASMR - Auditory Sensory Meridian Response

    Asmr is one of the strangest things, it's just....uh.... I'm still struggling with how it even appeals so many people as much as it does. I'm thinking partially in the area of auditory stimulation (with the subtleties of quiet sounds that are often inaudible) and psychological (possibly...

    What other religions do we have on this forum?

    This is a genuine question that just came to me that I'm curious about. It seems that the majority a Christians, with just a few Muslims. I do recall seeing a Hindu here at one point. So for this thread the audience is more from Hindus, Buddhists, Taoists, Zoroastrians, Sikhs, Jains, pagans and...

    Women who rebel..in Saudi Arabia

    Yes, the Kali Yuga very much (interestingly irreligion/Adharma, immorality and political corruption are major themes with that Yuga in many Hindu texts on the subject I've read). Yes it's very much a ride to buckle up for, it's hard to know how long it will go for but the plantations have been...

    Women who rebel..in Saudi Arabia

    Yes, that is a disturbing thought o_O But modernity (and postmodernity) itself is very much a good reason why modernity (and postmodernity) is a bad thing. It's an insurvivable mess with no way to sustain itself, nor any way to balance it's own inner conflicts. It's very much that 'end of...

    The reliability of Christian and Muslim texts compared

    This is something that separates religions that are practice and discipline based versus ones that are more about only promoting an idea. Devotion is incredibly important to us, I find it strange but not unsurprising to find a very strict downplaying or rejection of devotion, discipline and...

    In what way? you haven't really described anything you intend to state.
