  1. Asalamualaikum.

     

    I heard in the news a few days ago that women will be allowed to vote in elections in the future in Saudi Arabia.

    My question is, why did Saudi Arabia prohibit women from voting in the first place? Was there anything in the Koran/Hadith which made the Arabs not allow their women to vote?

     

    Also, I have heard that women in Saudi Arabia are not allowed to drive cars. Is this true? If so, why not?

    Thanks!

     

    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. 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.


  3. 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.


  4. 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?


  5. Cruorem, that is all and well but aren’t we missing the bigger picture here? Surely any rational person would never conclude that a book, a film and even the most basic of games such as the pacman etc are without an intellect, motivation,purpose behind them or they are something that appear from nothing or from some freak accidents? Look around at our own world and the universe and even within ourselves, wth all the systems and intricacies, more complex that anything we ousrselves could ever design and created, you space marine would not even be like a 'stickman' in comparison to the real world, how could then anyone with a rationality and common sense fail to see the intellect behind all these?

     

    Would you mind rephrasing?

     

    Kinda don't see what you're getting at. >_<


  6. You know, I'm a little curious..when you become 'space marine' shooting and blowing up things, how ludicorous it is to assume that you are actually the 'master' of the whole thing,who gets to decide who lives and dies, which planets to anihilate etc etc simply because you spent 20 bucks buying the game? The simple fact is, even the most miniscule act such as pulling the trigger involves hundreds if not thousand lines of codes by nameless invisible programmers..yes Cruorem, the fact that you have spaceships, planets, obstacles, ground, killings fields and what not are due to millions of lines of codes by these invisible programmers..and you think your 'space marine' charavter was a real hero with victories and destiny in his hand??? Think about it Cuorem, oh and enjoy the game..:-)

     

     

    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:

  7. Haha. It's almost as funny as when people phone in The Atheist Experience.

     

    The roles are reversed, though.

  8. I think these games can seriously damage one's psyche. I got hooked on 'Doom' sometime ago and it still scares me to think that I can still remember a lot of the rooms, spaces, nooks and crannies and activating buttons. Not to mention 'The Enemy'!

    I don't want my memory banks filled with this garbage thankyou very much. I think it could well be a recipe for senility in one's old age. Talk about self abuse!

     

    Ron

     

     

    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.


  9. "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:


  10. 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.


  11. 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.


  12. 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.

  14. Because some people put all of their trust in alternative medicine, instead of tried-and-tested medical science, which they completely neglect as their illness worsens. All the time these peopel selling the "alternative medicine" are making money.

     

    People have died because of this.

  15. Why did God make some people ugly and others good looking? It’s not fair. I find myself looking in the mirror and wondering why I have to be so ugly and have such an ugly body when all my friends are pretty and have nice bodies and they are tall. Why was God unfair to me like this? I have Seen Attractive people are appreciated in All parts of their life. I have a life too I have feeling and I want to be tall too like my friends. They get the beautiful partners in their life and people like us who are ready to sacrifice my life for anyone get rejected because of looks and my height. Its not Fair :sl:

     

     

    Firstly, God didn't make anything, y'kinda have to exist to make stuff.

     

    Secondly, all of those magazines you see with exceptionally beautiful women on the front covers (Not ###### mags, celebrity mags.) are all airbrushed and photoshopped, and unrealistic, so don't try and compare yourself to rubbish like that, or hold it as any kind of standard - it's all fake. All that'll do is lower your self-esteem and make you feel even uglier.

     

    I doubt you're particularly ugly, and even if you are, so what? Anyone worth being with won't look at you for your outward ugliness, but go for you, as a person.


  16. Ok, since this place doesn't have an off topic forum, this seems like the best place to post this.

     

    Has anyone played Space Marine, yet?

     

    Seriously, I'm hooked on it, it's amazing.

     

    If anyone plays it on the 360, and has XBL, and wants their rear end handed to them via jump pack and chainsword/thunder hammer, lemme know. :sl:

     

    Only 50 melee kills 'till I get 500 melee kills. :no:.

     

     

     

     

    Oh, and FOR THE EMPEROR!

     

    Side note: Also, if anyone plays Warhammer 40,000, lemme know. :sl:. I play Ultramarines, Tyranids and Necrons. (Maybe I'll upload some pics of my painting... if I can be bothered.).


  17. I'm no relationship expert, but you can't pass this off to any god or gods.

     

    If there's a problem, praying isn't going to fix it, blaming not fasting, or not praying, or whatever on it isn't gonna help.

     

    Obviously, I don't know the details, so I can't help much, but what I will say is, look at your relationship with him. See what's wrong with it, and think about how you can fix it. I assume your husband means a lot to you, and you want to save your marriage, in which case, don't look to Allah for help, look to yourself and him.

     

    If y'told me more, I'd gladly offer what help I can, but it's hard without specifics.

     

    Either way, good luck, hope y'both get through it and are ok. :sl:


  18. tell me, how could muhammed who was illiterate man or anybody else know about Big bang and expansion of universe in 6th century in desert? They did not have telescopes to see in universe and discover like Eistein and Edwin Hubble could ?

     

    Who told muhammed this scientific facts in Quran?

     

    this is evidence for all of us that QUran is indeed from God, this is proof that you can believe that God exists and that quran is his book.

     

    God said in quran:

     

    41:53 We will soon show them Our signs in the Universe and in their own souls, until it will become quite clear to them that it is the truth. Is it not sufficient as regards your Lord that He is a witness over all things?

     

    It's easy to interpret as scientific knowledge after the fact. Show me where in the Qu'ran it links quantum physics with the theory of relativity, and I might be impressed.

     

    Loosely interpreting something to mean somethong after it's discovered is intellectually dishonest.

     

    Use the Qu'ran to make a discovery, if it's so full of scientific knowledge.

     

    When God talks about big bang and expansion of universe in quran , and our scientists discover this stuff, this is how God shows His signs to us so we can believe in his Book Quran.

    he does not care if he harms society, beacuse he get easy money and gold, he enjoy life.

     

    but what will happen to him on the day of judgment is another story....

     

    Ok, so he has money. Meanwhile, the person he stole it from picks up a gun and goes out to get revenge, unable to kill him, decides to kill his family. Suddenly, he's not so happy anymore.

     

    See? It's not as simple as "He stole money, he's happy."

     

    Also, what part of "If he wants a reason why it's bad for him? Well, it harms a society that he's part of." did you fail to understand?

     

    If everyone was stealing from everyone, society would collapse.


  19. 1) "The Qu'ran is right about some things, so it must be right about ev erything!".

     

    Nonsense. The Lord of the Rings is right about the fact swords exist, that doesn't mean Sauron exists.

     

    Also, can he show that the 80% of the Qu'ran he claims is correct is actually correct? I doubt it.

     

    2) One logical reason robbing is bad? Because it harms society, it has a negative impact on another individual.

     

    If he wants a reason why it's bad for him? Well, it harms a society that he's part of.

     

     

     

     

    Ultimately, he's done nothing to prove the existence of Allah, or the existence of life after death.
