  1. Status Of Women In Saudi Arabia

    Wow. If that's true (Women aren't allowed to vote, or drive.), then Saudi Arabia is a backwards, primitive country, with twisted and disgusting laws. But then, what else is new? Wouldn't suprise me if even uttering the word "equality" over there was punishable by death. I mean, if what you say is the case, then they don't even enjoy freedom of gender, much less the freedom of speech, sexuality, religion or thought.
  2. Well, the Bible is unreliable. Don't feel bad, though, here's a few more unreliable books: Torah. Qu'ran. Vedas. Tipitaka. Zhuangzi. Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health.

    After all, isn't it better to say "I don't know." and try to find out the answer in such a way that you know your answer will be as accurate as possible, than to say "I do know!" and accept the first answer you come across, believing something unsupported by evidence, which could easily be wrong, and commit to that answer, regardless? Especially if the latter prevents you from examining and trying to find out the real answer.

    Ah, I see what you're getting at now, thanks for clearing it up. Firstly, I don't think this existence is an "accident", the word "accident" implies that there was someone who messed up. The 40k universe is a FICTIONAL universe, you can't draw that parrallel between a fictional universe and the real one. The real one is a result of natural forces, the fictional one is obviously the result of intelligence. Warhammer 40k is not real. The characters, the setting, the technology, the backstory, everything is a construction of human creativity. As for common sense, common sense is quite often wrong. I mean, if you look out at the horizon, common sense would tell you that the world is flat. Common sense would tell you that stars are tiny little lights and not massive spheres of nuclear fusion billions of lightyears away. Logic, evidence and reason trumps common sense every time, and quite often, to be accurate, you have to ignore what common sense is telling you and focus on what the evidence is saying. A lot of this reality we can explain without the need for creators, or gods or dieties. Take for example, this "complex body", it's the result of 3 billion years (rounding up) of random mutation, selected naturally by the environment (Natural selection.). However, what we don't know, like "What existed before the big bang?", doesn't mean we can pretend to know these answers and be accurate about it. You believe that Allah created everything, but until the scientific method is followed, and evidence for this "hypothesis" is provided and scrutinized, taking into account all that we already know through the same self-correcting methood, I simply cannot bring myself to believe in a creator. Honestly, I much prefer conceding to the fact that I don't know. No one does, and claiming to know the origin of everything, based on a 1400 year old book, written by a primitive society that was scared of the unknown - rather than fascinated by it - is a sign of intellectual dishonesty.

    Sorry, man, no idea what you're on about. Asked a few mates and they're just as confused, so it's not just me. >_<
  6. Can Muslims Befriend Non-muslims?

    Islam: Stoping people becoming friends since ~600AD. No wonder Islam has so many enemies. It's like me saying "I don't want to be your friend because you don't listen to metal and being your friend won't make me a better metalhead.", or "I don't want to be your friend because you don't play 40k and being your friend won't make me a better 40k player.". And honestly? If I was chillin' with someone and they told me that they didn't want to hang out with me anymore, because I'm not a Muslim, I'd quite happily tell them where they can stick it. Why would anyone want to be friends with someone so stuck up, anyway?
  7. Depends. If you lived in Saudi Arabia you'd be executed, so be kinda hard to revert back to Islam.

    Would you mind rephrasing? Kinda don't see what you're getting at. >_<

    It's a story, like any other. It's just more interractive than a book, or a film. As for the millions of lines of code, well, to be able to write those lines of codes, and compile them into a game, with a story that pulls you in and makes you feel like part of it, making you feel like you're a part of that universe, that's an art, no less an art than music, or film, or prose. Space Marine isn't just this game, though, it's built on the lore and backstory of a 35 year old franchise, that's been advancing and developing and getting better for three and a half decades. Spoilers alert... well, kinda. Just an amazing cutscene: (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetyoutube(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/watch?v=sgm0ukLqOyI&NR=1"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetyoutube(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/watch?v=sgm0ukLqOyI&NR=1[/url]
  10. Christain Can't Answer A Muslim Caller On Tv ...

    Haha. It's almost as funny as when people phone in The Atheist Experience. The roles are reversed, though.

    Actually, playing violent video games tends reduce stress and works as a really good outlet for any aggression. They can also help combat depression. RTS games also help with your ability to multitask. Oh, and it doesn't "rot your brain", especially when there are difficult challenges and puzzles within a game.
  12. Simple And Beautiful Sayings

    "Pain is an illusion of the senses. Fear, an illusion of the mind." "A small mind is easily filled with faith." "Incoming fire has the right of way." "If your battle plan's working, it's probably a trap." "Victory needs no explanation, defeat allows for none." "A mind without purpose walks in dark places." "The enemy of my enemy dies next." "The universe is a big place, and whatever happens, you will not be missed." "Those who live by the sword will be shot by those that don't." "Life is the Emperor's currency, spend it well." "Only the insane have strength enough to prosper; only those that prosper truly judge what is sane." "Sanity is for the weak!" "Knowledge is power; guard it well." That'll do for now. :sl: Bonus brownie points if anyone can tell me where they're from. :sl:
  13. Fastest Growing Religion In The World...

    1) Your icon; Islam will never dominate the world. Ever. 2) This is Fox News. Anyone who believes Fox News in anything is retarded. 3) Atheism is growing faster than Islam. Islam may be the fastest growing religion, but Atheism isn't a religion. Since the Rennaisence, at least, in the Western world, atheism has been growing a lot faster than any religion. Except Scientology, in the last few decades, that's grown immensely, unfortunately.
  14. "posts In This Topic"

    Anyone else getting this? where, in a topic, the first post shows normally, but every post after that is in a link that you have to click to see it? What's going on? Why do I have to go to a different page just to see each individual post in a topic? It's pretty stupid. Anyone know how to fix it? Seriously, that "feature" is about as useful as a condom machine in the Vatican.
  15. Can Muslims Befriend Non-muslims?

    Why wouldn't you? If a muslim came up to me and offered their hand in friendship, I wouldn't reject that based on their religion. Ultimately, a friend is a friend, regardless of their religion. Though, if a Muslim wished to isolate themselves like that, then go for it, I'm not gonna stop them. Don't particularly want to be friends with someone as shallow as that, anyway.
