Good lord, have you even read a passage in the Qu'ran?
Qur'an:8:39 Fight them until all opposition ends and all submit to Allah.
Qur'an:8:67 It is not fitting for any prophet to have prisoners until he has made a great slaughter in the land.
Qur'an 8:12 I will terrorize the unbelievers...Strike off their heads and cut off each of their fingers and toes.
Qur'an 9:5 Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, torture them, and lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.
Al Queda, the Taliban and the Saudi government are very true Muslims.
Those relate to war, and war only. It is a helpful tactic to see the opposition as "non-beleivers" to help soldiers fight them, even if they really arent non-beleivers. So, calling them "disbeleivers" is a good example of that, because wars fought in that area were often between groups of the same faith. For the most part, Bin Laden twists the Qur'an for his own purposes by only citing violent passages, instead of the many, many peaceful ones. Muslim scholars around the world are disgusted by Bin Laden. The only violence in it have to do with war, while the rest of the Qur'an preach peace and brotherly love and living a moral life.Qur'an 4:90
Exempted are those who join people with whom you have signed a peace treaty, and those who come to you wishing not to fight you, nor fight their relatives. Had GOD willed, He could have permitted them to fight against you. Therefore, if they leave you alone, refrain from fighting you, and offer you peace, then GOD does not allow you to harm them.
"If they refrain from fighting you and wish for peace, you should do the same"Qur'an 60:08
Allah forbids you not, with regard to those who fight you not for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loveth those who are just.
Haha, this one actually encourages you to have a peaceful relationship with non-muslims
. Regardless of their faith, if they are just, be just to them.Qur'an 22:56
All sovereignty on that day belongs to GOD, and He will judge among them. As for those who believe and lead a righteous life, they have deserved the gardens of bliss.
So, like all the parts of the Qur'an that don't refer to war, this one encourages you to lead a virtuous life, as well as (obviously) beleive. That passage is about as far from violent as you can get. Most of the Qur'an is peaceful, the violent bits are for war, and war only. Bin Laden is a perfect example of what i was talking about. I repeat, Muslim scholars from every edge of the globe are disgusted at Bin Laden's manipulation of the Qur'an to have his cronies do his dirty deeds because of his blind hate for the western world.
Also, i found these particular passages pretty funny, and i'm not even Muslim...Qur'an 22:8
Among the people there is the one who argues about GOD without knowledge, and without guidance, and without an enlightening scripture. Qur'an 22:9
Arrogantly he strives to divert the people from the path of GOD. He thus incurs humiliation in this life, and we commit him on the Day of Resurrection to the agony of burning.
The Qur'an just called you a dumbshit trying to undermine people's beleifs.
Also, the Qur'an states that Muslims are never allowed to initiate conflict, whether religous or not, which is exactly what Bin Laden did to the United States. Bin Laden just sinned and went against his own religion, and is now using the Qur'an for his own evil purposes. I don't think that is what Allah had in mind buddy. My statement holds true.
Without religion there would have been no Spanish Inquisition, no Crusades, no thousand year old war in Israel, no Al Queda etc.
Again, you're blaming religion for the acts of a bunch of selfish pricks that wrongly used their religion as a tool to justify their digusting actions. I gurantee you, God never wanted a bunch of diseased spaniards to infect and kill the residents of South America, nor does God want people converted unwillfully. As a Christian, i have read many passages that preach respect towards non-Christians, just as the Qur'an has. Those dirty-ass "Catholics" just manipulated their power to achieve their disgusting goals.
Actually, no. I'm afraid there is no non-biblical source for Jesus having ever been alive.
I can't convince you, do your own research as i have.
They sound similar, and Set is the ruler of the underworld, while Satan rules over hell.
Oh, so they sound similar. I gurantee you, the ancient Egyptians did NOT speak english, who knows what "Set" sounds like in their language. Just because one or two letters are in both doesn't mean theres a connection.
was the ruler of the underworld. Set was a supreme ruler alongisde Ra.
You mean like their name, the shepards rod, the similar stories etc.
Again, early Christians didn't speak English, and neither did ancient Egyptians. Who knows what sort of goofy-ass accents they could've had as well. Just because they sound similar, does not mean theres a relation. "HOLY SHIT, HALF A SYLLABLE SOUNDS REMOTELY SIMILAR TO THIS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT ONE"
Also, since many people of Pagan origin were converted to Christianity, and there were Christians whom had ancient paganism related to the culture of their country, couple that with the fact that we have NO FIRST-HAND SOURCES, it is easy to see where these similarities may have come from and how little we might know about it. We weren't fuckin there. Horus is most commonly represented by the Falcon as well, i don't remember Jesus being represented or related to any sort of creature from the raptor family.
No, Satanists worship satan, while Atheists believe in logical explanations, and using fact, complex reason and research to explain the universe, in place of the fairy tales used in past centuries.
You haven't looked into it. I hate to sound like Psycho, but i'll say you are "talking out of your ass". There is theistic Satanism and laveyan satanism. Laveyan is pretty much a philosophical form of atheism while theistic satanism is pretty much what you described: they worship satan blindly. Laveyan satanists just use satan as a symbol of their anti-christian views.
