  1. Music Industry? Pardon Me Its Actually The Demon Industry

    It is, and that's because they're the crowd that's most easily marketable too. When was the last time you saw a group of people in their 40's listening to the new stuff you hear on the radio today? That's because the majority of mature adults don't buy into it, rather, the music industry relies on marketing this stuff to a younger audience, often times at an age where they do not question the validity of what it is they're being presented. Sadly, this type of stuff is being marketed to all young people, not just any one particular type of group, and so I think because so many fall into the mindset that this type of music is "cool" and "trendy" that when presented with music that actually carries substance, they simply disregard it.

  3. Peace In The Quran

    Despite being an old thread, thank you for the information.
  4. Day Of Judgment

    I find it to indeed be a scary topic for a few reasons...the big one being that the Mayan's prediction on the eclipse and pole shifting was so accurate all those years ago, without all the modern technology and science we possess today. On top of that, they cited that day as being a day of "rebirth." That can mean many different things, however one such thing that strikes my mind is a "cleansing" of the Earth as we know it. I think the weirdest thing though is simply not knowing...will the poles switch and nothing happen at all? Will they switch and cause major natural disasters? Will they not switch to begin with? Will it just be like any other day? Who truly knows until the day is upon us!
  5. Alex Grey

    Perhaps this is in the wrong section, but it seemed like the most logical place to put it. Anyways, is anybody here an Alex Grey fan? He does psychedelic artwork, and is responsible for much of the artwork behind the band "Tool" for those familiar with it. ######alexgrey(contact admin if its a beneficial link) Alex Grey is not Islamic, nor does he subscribe to any particular faith; in his works however, he often details God and the love we receive from him, subjected to us in many different forms. Truly unique and inspiring stuff. He is probably my favorite artist to date, as his work has definitely opened up my mind about the universe we live in and the way we perceive our surroundings.
  6. The Punishment Of Apostate

    And that is one thing we can both agree on.
  7. How Do I Edit My Existing Post

    Ahh I should have read this earlier when I double posted...however I did not find any feature that allowed me to edit previous posts.
  8. Difficult Riddle!

    Even though it's been solved, very unique riddle!
  9. Deep Contemplation Riddle

    To sum all three questions up with one answer
  10. The Punishment Of Apostate

    Trust me, no offense taken. I can completely respect your viewpoint, assuming you can respect mine, however I guess that will be a topic we will never see eye-to-eye on.
  11. The Punishment Of Apostate

    You could argue that leaving Islam is a serious offense against Allah, yes; however what if said person doesn't believe in Allah to begin with? For example, lets say I declare myself to be "God." You continue on worshiping me and doing as I ask without any issues arising. Then one day you decide "hey, this guy isn't God at all...what am I doing here?!" and thus you decide to leave. Would it be appropriate for me to do decide to kill you? On your end of the spectrum, you're saying "but this guy isn't really God, he can't tell me what to do" and yet on my side, maybe I truly DO believe I'm God. Simply because I believe myself to be "God" does that give me the power to sacrifice YOUR life? I realize arguing this is a moot point, because I'm assuming you're going to say that Allah is the one true ruler, and so his wishes take priority above anything else. However, you have to keep in mind that his sphere of influence ONLY extends TO THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN HIM. Just as if I declare myself to be "God," my wishes and demands only extend to those whose truly believe that I am indeed "God." If I decide that I do NOT believe in Allah, and that I do NOT wish to be represented within this particular religious community, since when are they given the right to violate my human rights and forsake MY life?
  12. Music Industry? Pardon Me Its Actually The Demon Industry

    I've known this for a while now....that is, that the music industry is one big pile of "fakeness." They care nothing for originality or creativity, rather they care first and foremost about increasing profits and selling a particular image. If they can get people to buy into something, ie: they think it's "cool" or "hip" or "trendy" then they'll continue to push it down their throats. Look at the music that radios continue to blast nowadays... what "message" does it convey? Yeah....exactly...it doesn't convey one to begin with. Very rarely do I hear a modern artist on the radio and walk away feeling more intelligent or enlightened in any one particular area.
  13. Celebrations....

    This thread isn't about chocolate?!?! :sl: Just kidding, but I do make it a regular deal to celebrate the birthdays and special occasions of loved ones around me. While I know it's not a big deal to everyone, I think it's good to let the ones you love know that you'll never forget about them, both in past, present and future. It's just a small token of reminder in letting them know how much you care, and if it makes them feel good too, then what harm can come of it?
  14. The Best Age To Marry?

    I couldn't agree more, and while I think 25-30 on average represents the age people are most ready to enter into the bond that is marriage, maturity is a relative term. As Sampharo said, I know people who are over 40 years old and possess no more maturity than a high-schooler, while people exist who are half their age and carry on their shoulders a great deal more responsibility. It all depends on the individual, their upbringing, and how they choose to associate themselves.
  15. Do You Put God Before Humanity?

    Not to double-post...but I just wanted to rephrase my previous post a bit. If I had some positive acknowledgment that God DID indeed want me to carry out some act, and that it was for the better of mankind, then yes, I would definitely do it. With that being said, I would need some way of knowing that this was indeed "God" who was asking me to commit this act, not merely a recollection of my own subconscious coming into play or emotions dictating my life, rather I would require 100% on knowing where this order came from before carrying it out.
