>Do you still find comfort in scripture? Do you find meaning in the quran/hadiths?
I enjoy reading the Qur'an. Probably even more than when I felt I had to defend the brutal and cruel passages. I see it now as a historical piece of literature. I love reading tafseers. I think the mufassireen were geniuses - and highly amusing.
>How has apostatizing again effected your views, if they are effected at all?
I only left Islam once. As I said I toyed with labels such as "Agnostic Muslim" simply as a means to be an effective voice for reform from 'within' Islam. But it just feels disingenuous and have dropped that label now. But as I say my actual views about Islam and Qur'an have remained consistent since first losing my faith about 10 years ago.
>Did you find "effected" to be a good follow-up, or would "affected" be more fitting?
I don't understand.
>Did you listen the song on the Dawahman thread? If so, what did you think of my singing voice and writing talent?
I will check it out later - insha'Allah
>Do you still rock out to Def Leppard?
Pink Floyd is more my style. (I'm pretty sure I've never said I was a Def Leppard fan. I do love a bit of Led Zeppelin though.)
>Why do you think so many people on CEMB regard you in such a fatherly way? Or at least beloved uncle way?
I guess because I'm old and most ex-Muslims tend to be youngsters. Plus I founded the forum along with Berbs, Oz & Wisehaven.
>Would you ever use your fatherly/unclely way to seduce girls with daddy issues?
>What would be your ideal first pokemon?
Never into Pokémon, sorry.
>Would you consider me good looking enough and intelligent enough to combine your genes with mine?

She's married :p
Do you like Africa by Toto?
No. It's shit.

My favourite period was the 70s
>If I paid for Ibn Bilal to come to the next farm concert thing, could you quote unquote "accidentally" book us in the same room? One bed of course. Feel free to send your hot daughter.
>Assuming you listened to the Dawahman Song thread, do you think I should record a sing song of Ibn Bilal's Hotel Islamifornia?
Not read it.
>Masquerading as a man with a reason, my charade is the event of the season.
>Did you ever see the Masters of Horror episode Jennifer? If so, did the mutant demon thing girl remind you of anyone you know or have known in real life? IL seriously fucking reminded me of this girl I know...
Not seen it.
If you haven't seen that ep, or indeed that show, will you watch it now just so you can give an accurate answer?
>Do you like Boston? The band, not the city. This question ties into the above 80s/90s question.

>Have you ever read anything by Neil Gaiman?
>Have you ever read Paradise Lost?
>Do you think Iblis refused to bow because he thought Allah was testing him, and bowing to clay, when he was fire 9or anyone other than allah), would be shirk?
Leaving aside the fact that the story is fiction - yeah possibly. I suggested as much in one of my Agnostic Muslim Khutbahs.
>Are you a fan of Tolkien? Did you know they're doing a Lord of the Rings TV show? Considering how much better the Westworld telly show is to the 1970s movie, I have hope.
Yes, I'm a big fan of Tolkien. A series sounds interesting. Is the Westworld series good? I've been thinking of watching it but I loved the original film I'm worried it will disappoint me.
>Do you ever listen to Don't Fear The Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult?
More shit music.
>Do you watch Supernatural? If so, what do you think of the heroes palling around with the King of Hell and killing angels? Also, what's your fav ep? No wait, too hard I know, What eps would you show people you were introducing to Supernatural? Did you also get a kick when the King of Hell showed up on a back-road in middle America and said in a Midlands English accent "Ello lads. Fancy a fag and a chat?"
I've watched it a few times. It's fun. What do I think of the heroes palling around with devil's and killing angels. Erm... It's a TV show Quod. It's fiction. It's fun. This stuff isn't real you know? Why would anyone be bothered by it unless they thought that shit had some truth to it?
>What is your opinion of Loki?
>If you had to pick, which Avril Lavigne song would you choose, sk8er boi or mobile?
sk8er boi - only coz it's the only one I know.
>Do you ever read my Thought Provoking Works of Life and Morality thread?

Yeah David Tennant was awesome. I'm a bit old school though and loved Tom Baker.
>What's the wittiest thing you've said lately?
>Does "Burn" by The Cure remind you of teenage love?
Never occurred to me.
>Have you ever been so depressed that listening to Don't Stop Me Now by Queen didn't cheer you up at all?
Lol no. It works every time.
>Seriously, why haven't you commended on my Dawahman Song thread? Do you think I'm a bad singer? Is this why you haven't given me your daughter's number? You wake up in the middle of the night haunted by nightmares of grandchildren with my singing voice?

I like RHCP but don't recall that song.
