I think it’s pretty evident the God of Abraham, the monotheistic idea of God is man-made, but as far a creator, yes I agree, you can never say with 100% if there is none.
Like I was saying, my biggest dilemma was the impossibility of an all-powerful god who is also all-loving at the same time. This doesn’t make sense. That right there is proof that the God of Abraham as mentioned in the Torah, the Gospels, and the Quran is not real. A myth! A fairy tale! Excuses made to exonerate that are just convenient fall backs for people who desperately want there to be a God
Thank you :)
Do you know many so called “prophecies” like that exist, how vague nonsense people put together to just say, oh look, our God is real, our religion is real because this so called prophecy came true.
Please ask yourself, does the all knowing, all powerful, all loving master of the universe want to ignore and deny all he can supposedly do, just so we can see this four blood moon “prophecy”. I guess what really gets me is how you say you’re an atheist yet can actually fall for this in any way. I am not going to say it’s your fault, it gets to me because of how much manipulation exists when it comes to religion! How much they push their nonsense on people that even an atheist may wonder about something.
This specific 4 blood moon nonsense isn’t just laughable because its been debunked many times, but it actually doesn’t even make sense. I’d like for you to look at one of the many sites that have debunked it, this is only one of many, there are many more, this has been refuted endlessly! I am surprised it even comes up in this day and age.
I can’t answer this privately because you sent it on anonymous. Could you send it as a private message please, that way I can respond privately. I always do.
The Quran doesn’t say anything about masturbation, only vague passages that some people have interpreted to mean it’s about masturbation. The Bible also works the same way, it doesn’t come out and say don’t masturbate, it just has vague passages about some random crap, and people interpret it to mean whatever they want it to mean. This is why religion is so dangerous. You can read an allegorical passage, something under the lines of, “when a flower grows the water fills the cups”, someone will interpret that to mean “using condoms is wrong”.
Carl Sagan was awesome! I have a lot of great things to say about him. I only wish this religious idea of “hell” exists where all atheists and agnostics apparently end up going so that I could there and meet Carl Sagan, and many others of course.
Well, I believe I’ve given you all the proof and evidence there is
Where did you hear that I hate Muslims. I don’t know how clear I need to make it that not only do I not hate Muslims, but I actually have many Muslim friends, as well as Christian friends. People need to be open to having their beliefs challanged and criticized, and I am glad I have friends who understand that!
Well, first of all that’s not true at all. Trying to playing the “relative” game is very futile. Women, in general, had less rights back then, Islam didn’t really do much to change women’s rights, in fact in many ways it made worse, because it brought forth “divine commandments” that people take literally to be the true word of an all knowing God.
The amount of sexism and misogyny in the Quran and the Hadith is endless. As you are aware, Muslims are told that Muhammad’s ways in life should be the standard for all good Muslims! The Islamic Hadith states that Aisha was married to Muhammad at the age of 6, and the marriage was consummated when she was 9, while Muhammad was 53, in Medina. All the Hadiths agree on this, with the exception of al-Tabari, which states that she was 10 at the time, like that makes a difference! Sahih Bukhari Book 58, Number 236 states, “Khadija died three years before the Prophet departed to Medina. He stayed there for two years or so and then he married ‘Aisha when she was a girl of six years of age, and he consumed that marriage when she was nine years old.”
Many Muslims who deny the authenticity of this Hadith, even though it recorded in all Islamic teachings, keep in mind that the rest of this book contains the material that defines the religion of Islam, and this is why both of my grandmothers were married to men in their 30s when they hadn’t even reached the age of 13. Not only that, but the Hadiths go on to say how Female Genital Mutilation, although not an Islamic practice, took place well prior to Islam and instead of having a law that cared for little girls Muhammad basically gave instructions on how to carry out this despicable act (Abu Dawood 41:5251)
But some “moderate” apologists argue that the Hadith should not be considered; only the Quran applies, even though the religion of Islam exists because of the Hadith since it contains many laws and customs that make up the religion. It’s sort of like the pathetic Christian argument that the Old Testament doesn’t apply even though without the Old Testament their entire religion ceases to exist. Regardless, the Quran has its own fair share of hatred and disrespect for women. When you read the Quran, Allah is constantly speaking to MEN, telling MEN how to treat WOMEN, how to handle women, and even instructions on how to beat women. Women are not the focus; they are well below men or even worse they are just objects. This is really no different than the Bible. In the Quran Allah considers women to be like a dirty field and says men should come forward with their penises to plow the field. It even says that your wives are a place of sowing of seed for you. This goes beyond objectifying women, it’s absolutely sickening to think of women this way, like they’re tools that god created for pleasing men. (Quran 2:223)
But that’s not where it ends, the Quran tells us that men are a degree higher than women, and in cases of divorce the husband has more rights to take them back (Quran 2:228). And who can forget the justification of polygamy, which is only for men of course. Men can have up to 4 wives, but what about women? Well from an Islamic point of view, that doesn’t really matter (Quran 4:3)
Well what about inheritance, maybe the Quran will give women a break here, but no as the Quran tells us men inherit twice that of females. Allah seems to think of men as being better and more important than women; if he hadn’t made it clear by now he also wants to make sure we know that men are twice as important when it comes to inheritance (Quran 4:11). And well what about illegal sexual activities, surely women and men should be equal when it comes to being punished for an imaginary crime like this, but no, the punishment of life in house confinement is only for women (Quran 4:15). As you read through the Quran you notice more and more that women are like objects in Islam and the Quran tells us that if you get tired of one there are instructions on how to replace her (4:20). There is absolutely no question about it, in the Quran we are told that men are in charge of women and they can beat women if the woman does not obey them (Quran 4:34). But what about the poor women, what if their husbands disobey them? Well nothing has been said in the Quran about this because clearly from Islamic point of view that does not matter!
If it was not clear enough the Quran reiterates again and again that a male receives twice the share of females (Quran 4:176)
We can go further into the whole concept of hijab, and how the Quran says Muslim women must reduce their vision and cover themselves (Quran 24:31, Quran 33:59). But of course this is because men can’t control themselves, what about women? Don’t they have a sex drive as well? Not according to Islam if you read the Quran carefully. If instructions for divorcing your wife were not bad enough, the Quran also gives instructions on how to divorce the kids you married, which ties into the Hadith about Muhammad marrying Aisha when she was only 6. This is a passage discussing how a man should divorce the woman he no longer wants, then it just starts talking about cases where the wife has not reached puberty yet. (Quran 65:4)
I haven’t even talked about how women have been treated in Muslim countries; I’ve only discussed the actual religion. I could go on and on, but before I do, let me guess, I am taking it out of context? Do you realize that religions only exist because passages are taken out of context and applied to today’s world? Besides, under what context is any of this garbage acceptable?!! Please do yourself a favour and do a bit of research next time.
Scientology is just a cult, it’s not even worth studying it. At least religions like Islam and Christianity can be interesting to read about even if they are full of myths and fairy tales
