Your dawah needs work. i know you think it is all up to allah, and the quality of your dawah doesnt matter too much.
Actually the Qur'an lists the Top Good Deeds with the highest potency that a believer should do.
But surely you have to be in the right ballpark? Shouldn't you be talking about Islam?
Do I need to talk about Islam to a bunch of former Muslims? The last time I was here, I was told by some that even these former Muslim atheists were better Muslims than I because they knew Arabic and I didn't and some were Arabs and I wasn't. Naturally I was taken aback by these glimpses into the core of why they REALLY were atheists. (and they have the nerve to call ME arrogant.)
I do talk about Islam with the heavy hitters, the ones who have a very strong discussion game, and it is with those few that I have the most fun with. The teens who have the "mock 'em & move on" motto are just to practice my "smite" game on (although the mod just told me to stop).
i agree, but i dont think you realise what you saying. You are only saying that my view is falsifiable, whereas yours is not.
Mine isn't. Islam is my religion perfected for me by Allah, remember?
If evolution becomes overturned, thats only a threat to the theory of evolution. its not a threat to me. If such a thing ever happens, then i will simply stop believing in evolution.
Many atheists see evolution as the coveted replacement for the crutch of the "God superstition," and it is VERY important to them that it be true. If you aren't one of those, then the bulk of my anti-evolution argument isn't for you.
What is so scarey about changing your mind in according with the best evidence available at the time? Why would you describe such a thing as a 'threat'? and why is it preferable to have a view that is immune to evidence?
There's nothing scary at at all about it when it comes to secular items. It's actually one of the reasons I enjoy science; I love the new discoveries, etc. The majesty of the wonders of creation is the signature of its Creator, and a sign to those who believe.
God is the Truth that all lesser truths radiate from. Recognizing that fact is how you win at life itself. But allowing something crazy to spread doubt in you like a cancer until you finally accept that doubt as a substitute for the truth, is how you fail at life, and it IS scary. For those weak of will, they should avoid anything that may plant/cultivate that seed of doubt so they will not be in danger. Not everyone is strong enough to entertain certain concepts without it causing them trouble. In the Qur'an God warns people like that to leave it alone... don't think about that stuff. For example, like how Quod feels when he thinks about the immaculate conception of the Christ. Just thinking about it makes him withdraw from the truth of his Lord, and it represents a temptation to his soul... a temptation of doubt that once he's accepting of, will only doom him. A man has to recognize his personal weaknesses and protect himself from them. Quod should instead just let it go, not think about stuff that will make his spirit weak, and surrender to his Lord that he may experience mercy.
