The danger of Islam over other religions

I may be misinformed here but my take on Islam is that it is the 'One true religion' and its followers have a duty to convert kaffirs or declare jihad on them (whatever the interpretation of that is). It is that black and white. As for apostates, I know of no other religion where some factions advocate death.

Faith schools and religious segregation are allowed and encouraged by this government and Madrasses are being set up all over the place. I have learned about fundie christian… Continue

Muslim Scientist: Neil Armstrong Proved Mecca – World Center

Here's a video that blew me away completely by its absurdity...
I mean... what can I say?
Is this guy on drugs or what??

Further proof that religion is a virus that takes over the mind, to survive every generation.

Why Religion and God are Unnecessary in the Modern World

I was originally going to publish this at Associated Content but they don't give up front payments for opinion articles so I published it there under a non-exclusive license and will publish it else where including my blog.


Beliefs in gods is as old as civilization as is religion. But is the belief in god(s) and religion necessary? Does it benefit society or does it harm society? It is my belief that a belief in god(s)… Continue

Pat Condell: Agressive Atheism

Pat just keeps getting better and better. His latest video really hangs religion out to dry. Below the video, I've also included the transcript.

Well, I’ve been hearing quite a lot of bitching and whining in the press lately about aggressive, intolerant, atheism; as if that’s, somehow, a bad thing. It seems religion can dish it out okay but it can’t take it: like a street thug who calls the police when his victims fight back. Aggressive atheism is really… Continue

From Ali Sina: The Problem is Islam, not Muslims

I just ran across this essay from the eminent ex-Muslim, Ali Sina: the founder of FaithFreedom International. It expresses my own feelings on the subject better than I could. Note: I edited the essay for grammatical errors (Ali Sina is an Iranian and English is his second language).

The Problem is Islam, not Muslims

By Ali Sina


We have to make a distinction between Muslims and Islam. Muslims are people, human beings like… Continue

The Truth about Faith

The natural realm is the universe and everything in it. The supernatural realm is, by definition, outside the natural realm, so nobody knows, or can know, anything whatsoever about the supernatural. The natural realm is physical; evidence for it is literally everywhere. The supernatural realm is pure conjecture and absolutely unsupported by physical evidence of any kind. The supernatural is, therefor, not scientifically testable.

However, supernatural claims… Continue

Eight years later

from Not My God

Tomorrow is the eighth anniversary of the worst terrorist attack in history. For many, the events of September Eleventh strengthened their belief in god– for some, in an angry, vengeful god, and for others, a kind, loving god. Others, still, wouldn’t retain their faith in the aftermath of the tragedy. Some of you may be among them.

It is probable that Richard Dawkins wrote the God Delusion and… Continue

The God(s) of Abraham?

So, who is the god of Abraham? Is it Yahweh, God, or Allah? Or, are they all simply one in the same?

It depends on how you define things. The Christian god is supposed to be the same god as Allah, but obviously you can’t actively believe they are all one in the same. Why? Because of the differences of laws, beliefs, and the judgments those gods are involved in. A Christian is not going to look at the things attributed to Allah, such as the prophet Muhammad and the insistence that… Continue

Militant Islam: So Thick You Can Spread It With a Sword

This story from BBC News (copied here for your convenience), saves the punchline for last; and I quote:

The sect said it was fighting against Western education and believed Nigeria's government was being corrupted by Western ideas.

It wanted to see Islamic law imposed across the country.

Crime, punishment and Mr Khan

Some sections of officialdom show common sense when it comes to appeasement, or lack of it, of unreasonable religious demands.

There’s this Muslim geezer in Birmingham, UK, who wants special dispensations on his community service – a punishment handed out after he was racist to an Irish policeman and harassed a judge – because… Continue

Ban the Burqa by Mona Eltahawy

Ban the Burqa

Thursday, July 2nd, 2009

By Mona Eltahawy

International Herald Tribune

NEW YORK — I am a Muslim, I am a feminist and I detest the full-body veil, known as a niqab or burqa. It erases women from society and has nothing to do with Islam but everything to do with the hatred for women at the heart of the extremist ideology that preaches it.

We must not sacrifice women at the altar of political correctness or in the name of fighting a… Continue

Honor attack in UK: acid poured down lover's throat

Muslim woman fears death in an honor killing after her lover was attacked with sulphuric acid. These killings, as we have documented here, happen again and again in an Islamic context -- yet the Daily Mail here attempts to give the impression that they happen all over the place.

Yet if they do happen in Hindu and Sikh communities, and among Christians (a more fanciful claim), the frequency is much greater among Muslims -- not least because there is Islamic legal sanction…

Where are the feminists, when women are suffering in the burqa?

Where are the feminists when you need them? Why are they not asserting themselves over the question of the burqa, and how it dehumanises women?

Pat Condell asks just that question in his entertaining video embedded below.… Continue

How religion tries to regulate what we read

Religious fanatics have been jailed for an attack on the UK home of a publisher. His “crime”? He dared to want to publish a novel about Aisha, the child bride of the Islamic prophet, Muhammad.

Now, according to The Times, among others, three Islamic fundamentalists have been banged up “for an arson attack on a London publisher who planned to print an ‘offensive’ book about the Prophet… Continue

The following, clipped from the news site, is a revealing glimpse of the abject incompatibility between Islamic and Western values.

Sarkozy wrong on Burqa ban
