Quote from: Shiranu on September 10, 2017, 11:12:42 PMUnfortunately, for being the 4th largest religion in the world it is also one of the least known about.
Quote from: Baruch on September 11, 2017, 01:03:09 AMI found a travelog about the Golden Temple in Amritsar ... quite interesting.
Quote from: Cavebear on September 11, 2017, 10:27:14 AMI agree about that. Most christians would be surprised to know moslems follow a lot of the bible prophets.
Quote from: pr126 on September 11, 2017, 10:48:40 AMA good reason for that. Muhammad tried (and failed) to attract Jewish and Christians to Islam despite including their prophets.That is the very reason that he hated them so much, and Muslims following the founder, still hate and kill them.

Quote from: Cavebear on September 11, 2017, 10:54:48 AMPossibly. Comparing the religious texts of judaism, christianity, and islam is very much like reading the same fables in French, Italian and Spanish.
Quote from: pr126 on September 11, 2017, 11:01:16 AMThat is because Mo has plagiarised most of the Quran from the bible (very inaccurately) but all the rituals and customs are from the pre-Islamic Arab pagan, Sabean, Zoroastrian mix. Allah was a pagan black stone idol (still in the Kaaba), promoted by Mo to the creator of the universe.
Quote from: Cavebear on September 11, 2017, 11:16:42 AMFor every time you annoy me, you also equally please and surprise me. I agree. Every religion rises from another and much of judaism comes from Babylonia, which comes from some older idea, etc. The judaic flood was not original and neither were the coomandments which are mostly, just common sense among nomads settling into villages.All religion is a mere codification of what humans had already learned in order to exist together peacefully with a Threat From Above added in. An afterthought, if you will, taken up as a scam by preists ans shamans as a cool way to earn a living without doing any actual work.Isn't it more pleasent to tell people to pray to the sky-daddy than guide a plow walking in ox crap??? LOL!
Quote from: Cavebear on September 14, 2017, 04:30:07 AMI do mind. And the paganer, the worse. The good part of organized religion is the organized part. Sadly, the bad thing about it is the organized part too.
