    Look it up.

    Search of Ancient Greece on Wikipedia.

    Really, you need to learn to look further than the Koran - use this opportunity to look for possible answers or just plain facts in places...

    Look it up.

    You could infer the approximate years from all my previous post showing where in ancient Greek times they knew already what you thought the Koran told for the first time.
  3. A war against religion - any religion - all...

    A war against religion - any religion - all religion - but only any and all that demand special treatment and any and all that wish to establish anything like a theocracy - a war against blasphemy...
  4. It most certainly does offend me. It makes me...

    It most certainly does offend me. It makes me raging bloody made - I am not kidding you.

    My ancestors fought wars in Europe to free us from all the bloody stupidity.

    I'm not going to let it be...
  5. I find this idea offensive - it is what I call...

    I find this idea offensive - it is what I call idolatry - putting some idol - an idea, a name, a book etc - above the ordinary man - that offends me gravely.
  6. Eer, no, you do not know whether it is the word...

    Eer, no, you do not know whether it is the word of any god. Because no body even knows if any god exists. First you have to prove that a god exists - then that that god would even want to dictate a...
  7. It's not about what you posted - it's what is...

    It's not about what you posted - it's what is said between the lines.

    What is written in the Koran is nothing anywhere near as interesting as what was written in either the works of Plato or...
  8. Yes, that's another topic entirely, you're...

    Yes, that's another topic entirely, you're probably more interested in sociology and anthropology. I'm not. My interest is epistemology and its underpinning logic.

    Like taking two friends to see...
  9. I'm only interested in whether there is anything...

    I'm only interested in whether there is anything in the Koran that could be of interest. They say their prophet was something of a village idiot who could neither read nor write yet he still managed...
  10. Libya was going to nationalise British, American...

    Libya was going to nationalise British, American oil and the oil of other western nations in Libya - Kaboom!! They forgot the oil is no longer theirs - in a certain sense.
  11. It is a little like baldness or the heap. The...

    It is a little like baldness or the heap. The Sorites Paradox.

    The matter permits of paradoxes and borderline cases.

    That is why there are contracts - to try create clear boundaries where...
  12. There is a sense in the which the oil is theirs...

    There is a sense in the which the oil is theirs and it is not.

    I might have a certain gene that permits me to fight off a certain cancer naturally. My daughter might get cancer. Those who isolated...
  13. Not if you give them a contractual right to come...

    Not if you give them a contractual right to come over and set shop up in your country. If you let them do this then the oil is theirs. And if you try take those factories from them they will come and...
  14. There is no evidence that the wheel is solely an...

    There is no evidence that the wheel is solely an Arabic discovery.

    The Iraqi's could not on their own have developed a petroleum industry.

    They may have some shared claim to the oil but the oil...
  15. No, really, if no US technology had been brought...

    No, really, if no US technology had been brought to Iraq you still would not even know whether you had oil down there. And even if you did - you could not get it out for use.
  16. It's not your oil - it is US technology that...

    It's not your oil - it is US technology that turns what is below the ground into a viable commodity.
  17. There is no evidence whatever that Allah exists....

    There is no evidence whatever that Allah exists.

    The world around us and out there is precisely as it be would if there was no Allah.

    However, Allah's scientific thesis, the Koran, would never...
  18. If you have read any of my previous posts you...

    If you have read any of my previous posts you will see that I have already eliminated Allah from the list of possible reliable authorities.

    Since Allah got everything else about science wrong I...
  19. My understanding is that evidence shows we and...

    My understanding is that evidence shows we and Neanderthals evolved from a common ancestor somewhere back up in the main branches of the multi-branched tree of evolution.

    Certainly Apes, Monkeys,...
  20. There is no evidence whatsoever that we were...

    There is no evidence whatsoever that we were created. None whatsoever. It is pure speculation - the jury is not even still out - no body even yet knows what a Jury regarding such matter would look...
  21. These people give no argument or evidence. All...

    These people give no argument or evidence.

    All they do is quote from the testaments of non experts, usually highly superstitious, from long ago. Very very unreliable - in fact almost guaranteed to...
  22. Dude - I really don't care what Spiderman or...

    Dude - I really don't care what Spiderman or Superwoman or Enyd Blyton or bloody Mohamed wrote about death and souls.

    None of these people are experts.

    Your Allah too is most certainly no...
  23. There is no evidence for this whatever - no...

    There is no evidence for this whatever - no evidence at all - none - not a single shred of evidence.

    And if you consider the fact that all the scientific propositions found in the Koran are either...
  24. It makes sense that everyone pays taxes. If...

    It makes sense that everyone pays taxes.

    If the normal way to pay tax was originally to do military service toward the theocracy and you did not subscribe to that religion but at the same time...
  25. You are conflating that which is said about...

    You are conflating that which is said about Muslims with that which is said about Islam.

    Muslim leaders and men of certain countries discriminate heavily against woman.

    Islam, on account of it...
  26. Hatred? What are you talking about? I disagree...

    Hatred? What are you talking about?

    I disagree with you regarding Islam - I will tell you with no reservation - nothing held back. That cannot be read as me now hating you.
  27. I don't agree with her take on Thatcher - but...

    I don't agree with her take on Thatcher - but this is how all beliefs should be treated - no beliefs should be protected from attack.

    No truth needs protection - the truth is its own protection.

  28. He has every right to express his opinions and he...

    He has every right to express his opinions and he as the same rights as everyone else for his opinions to be critiqued and where they come out as obviously ridiculous they can be scoffed at.

    The...
  29. Well, my conclusion is that Islam is absolutely...

    Well, my conclusion is that Islam is absolutely effing ridiculous - so was Mohammed and so is Allah - all just a sick joke.

    That is not some random conclusion, Kefah, that is a considered opinion...
  30. But, on the other hand, without abuse, all...

    But, on the other hand, without abuse, all beliefs, including all religions, must be relentlessly critiqued.

    I would rather have questions that can't be answered, than answers that can't be...

    Plagues of Egypt
  32. Nonsense, Allah had to get all the Jews to place...

    Nonsense, Allah had to get all the Jews to place the blood of a lamb on the front door of their houses so that Allah did not kill any Jews when he was going to kill all the first born boys under...
  33. Why are there so many mistakes in the Koran? ...

    Why are there so many mistakes in the Koran?

    Tell me, would you lie to Allah if he was the one knocking on your door?
  34. But only someone with conditions such as Autism...

    But only someone with conditions such as Autism would never lie - surely?

    However, Muslims in the UK were caught on Camera preaching that Muslims must lie to all the non Muslim citizens of their...
  35. The Koran is an outdated book - no longer fit for...

    The Koran is an outdated book - no longer fit for general consumption.

    Anyway, if you want to claim any god had anything to do with the Koran then first you must show there is a god. Unfortunately...
  36. What if it was Mohamed or Allah knocking at the...

    What if it was Mohamed or Allah knocking at the door - would you still lie?
  37. In other words - for your morals and your...

    In other words - for your morals and your interpretation of moral laws and when to violate them you must defer to your own inner moral sense?

    Thus morality precedes books, religions and gods.
  38. That is psychopathic. What if a Nazi came...

    That is psychopathic.

    What if a Nazi came knocking at your door asking if you were hiding Jews in your house when in fact there were Jews hiding in your house? Would you tell the truth?
  39. Indeed, it is an entire constitution. The British...

    Indeed, it is an entire constitution. The British constitution is an abstract entity that includes all the case histories of the legal system - it is not some completed doctrine printed in final form...
  40. Kefah - they have all been answered - do your...

    Kefah - they have all been answered - do your homework - they are all false claims.

    Anyway - even if Allah got just one thing wrong that is enough for me to dismiss him as a false god.
  41. Allah is the one I am talking about - he is the...

    Allah is the one I am talking about - he is the one who inspired Mohammed to dictate all the science in the Koran - all now known to be false.
  42. You worship the person who apparently caused all...

    You worship the person who apparently caused all the Greek Science, now known to be wrong, to be included in the Koran.

    Exactly how much of the Koran is wrong? All of it? Most of it?

    The brain...
  43. Quite right, there is that potential. However,...

    Quite right, there is that potential. However, some perceptions are more defeasible than others.

    Consider a good example of the difference between trained philosophical analysis and ordinary folk...
  44. As far as I can see, Kefah has good atheistic...

    As far as I can see, Kefah has good atheistic morals - he seems to be good despite his religion. He seems blind to the evil in the Koran, he seems to choose from only the morally good or potentially...
  45. Mosesism regards mostly the Abrahamic brands that...

    Mosesism regards mostly the Abrahamic brands that are heavily dogmatic such as Judaism and Islam but also fringe cult-like-Christian branches that pop up now and then.

    If Jesus were alive today he...
  46. Not at all. I happen to believe there are no...

    Not at all. I happen to believe there are no gods. But that is all I have - I only have a belief - after all that there still could in fact be a god or gods.

    An epistemilogist is concerned with...
  47. I could not be bothered to read the Koran because...

    I could not be bothered to read the Koran because there can be no evidence for the existence of any gods.

    We have experience of mice - so we know what would be evidence of mice - we know the signs...

    Kefah states: "God must exist."
    Marc asks: "How do you know?"
    Kefah replies: "Because the Bible says so."
    Marc asks: "Why should I believe the Bible?"
    And Kefah explains: "Because the Bible...
  49. Here is a deductive argument in which the two...

    Here is a deductive argument in which the two premisses entail the conclusion.

    All men are mortal
    Socrates is a man
    Ergo, Socrates is a mortal

    Now, I see no necessary connection between Allah...

    Well, Allah protected only the concrete buildings then - there were very many concrete hotels and stores that were left standing - many concrete and brick houses were also left standing.
