Welcome to the public square. This is our welcoming tribe dedicated to introducing yourself, meeting new people, and learning about new tribes.
Boy I don't care for the JQ and I've written about that in the past. But it sure is interesting watching Kanye say that the Jews control the banks and major institutions and in response to his anti-semitic comments the banks dropped him and institutions pulled his contracts.
Let's address your points one by one:
Have you been there all those years prior? Or is it just anthropological speculation? another "theory"? There is something called the Lindy effect. If ideas and "myths" have perdured for so long, it is because they serve some purpose and because they are grounded in some "universal truths" that have made them unshakeable and likely to continue on even after both you and I pass on. 1/4 of humanity professes Islam, to think that you know better than 2 billion people and that somehow puts you in priviledged position to condemn just tells me one thing: you're full of hubris and arrogance.
What does that even mean? Hope of revenge? It seems you've never had a conversation with a muslim in your life. The value of Islam comes from the understanding of the impermanence of life, adherence to strict monotheism and as a structuring force in social affairs.
- There is something called domain dependence. Just because you are a master carpenter doesn't automatically make you an expert surgeon or accountant. Having contributed to the topic of intersexual dynamics doesn't automatically make you an expert in matters of theology. Furthermore take the time to read my replies and compare them to yours and your friend's. Never have i used an uncourteous verbiage or in any way harrassed or offended either. However you guys were pretty content in attacking and insulting me for the simple reason that i profess a faith foreign to yours. What does that make you look like?
I hope that sinks inRead More
This whole argument is retarded, and you are making yourself act retarded (when you probably are not) with the sheer unadulterated power of wishful thinking.
Tattoo this on the insides of your eyelids if that's what it takes for you to remember it:
RELIGION DOESN'T MATTER. Only technology, economics, and culture matter.
Islamic society was once the center of cultural and scientific development in the world, at a time when Europeans were illiterate savages who bathed twice a year.
Now they can't get their shit together, and would still be riding camels if it weren't the West.
Culture determines how religion is interpreted. Economics and technology determine culture.
And here all you clowns are trying to puzzle out how to "save" the West from two dudes kissing. Two dudes kissing doesn't matter.
What matters is the both the Islamic world and the West have gotten themselves into a state where innovation and creation are no longer the royal road to prosperity and happiness for the individual.Read More
@Lionsmane8 Okay, I was going to stay out of this one. But I will share my unworthy opinion here any way:
Like Christianity, Islam derived from Judaism. Judaism was founded upon the legend of Abraham. Abraham was a bronze-age desert dwelling goat herder who was willing to kill his own son because of the voices in his head. Today he would be carted off to a facility to be given medication to help manage his schizophrenia. All three religions are vile on this basis alone. One could write three bibles pointing out the voluminous vile content in the Koran, Talmud, and Christian Bible. VILE. All of it.
Islam only has value insofar as it gives its adherents some hope of revenge against the people who conquered and subjugated them long ago. Same with Christianity. It is bizarre to me to watch people follow a religion that literally mocks the people who believe - while putting their conquerors / overseers in the morally elevated position. WTH.
- @Typo-MAGAshiv has about as solid a track record of contribution to this place as anyone else. You seem new to me. So before you get shitty with a long time contributor - and he and I go quite a ways back - you should calm your tits and formulate a reasonable response. Otherwise you just look like an asshat with no real opinion. Religion is fine. Islam is okay with me as long as it keeps people peaceful. But claiming that Islam is an answer to what ails the West is like saying that smoking weed can ease the pain of lung cancer.
Give that a minute to sink in. If that is possible.
Have a good day.Read More
I certainly do think the world would be a better place if everyone in the world had a moral code, much like Islamic people do.
My guy, ‘Islamic people’ exist as a monolithic moral group as much as the fabled unicorn you’ve been pining for. That is to say, they don’t. Opening up what things should be on the basis of adherence to what is moral is a can of worms that doesn’t hold Islam at its core.
People in the west have much more freedom, but society is a lot more chaotic as a whole.
Freedoms under the guise of a neoliberal world order isn’t great by any means, but it’s a damn sight better than living on a bumfuck farm that’s about to be toast because it has some oil buried under it.
…Well shit, maybe not if you get 30 years of a woman walking five feet behind you… but still, you’d still have to have a go on the goat every now and again.Read More
@RedPirate751 I find it very hard to fake friendliness. I've read Dale carnegie , mark manson, all the shit that helps tremendously with social skills, but holy shit is it a chore conversate with someone I do not like. I know exactly what to say in any given situation, but if I find the other person a retard, I just can't bring myself to do it! Maybe it is normal.
