Abrahamic religions

Islam and Judaism = barbarianism

Christianity = religion of peace

Right?

by Bah%E1'%ED bye!reply 5303/28/2014

The Abrahamic religions are the western offshoot of the central Asian main branch now called the Dharma traditions, Hindu being the major thread. The Eastern offshoot is the Daoist traditions---Buddhism, Confucianism and Shinto being some the better known threads.

Until the Bronze Age, there were probably no male gods. All of the above religions appears to be variations of a female arctic goddess, possibly of African origins from the last major ice age, 55,000 years ago, when humans left Africa and headed toward the Arctic circle, which was much warmer then. The original goddess' name was pronounced with a “b” sound, like baba or bud. Hence Brahma of the Hindus, Buddha, Abraham. The male gods and prophets are either transgendered versions or the sons of the original goddess. Allah was a transgendered version of a latter day version of this goddess.

Many words may ultimately derive from this goddess, such as baby, breast, bosom, blossom, bud, bloom and the like. In Ireland, the goddess was named Bridget. In Russia Baba Yaga.

Personally, I believe religion was invented by mothers to control children and then men. But psychopathic men saw an opportunity to increase their power over others. The rest is history.

If you looking for a religion, you're better off smoking pot.

Well, if it's Peace you're going for, I think Christianity leads by far in ending with Peace the many great wars they started. So, there's that. Islamo and Jewish wars have been pretty disappointing actually.

by Bah%E1'%ED bye!reply 1109/29/2013

Religion to me has always seemed highly illogical, for a number of reasons.

Christians have spend centuries persecuting Jews, because they killed Jesus. But wait a minute: wasn't Jesus' reason to come into existence to die for our sins? The Christians therefore should be thankful to the Jews for killing Jesus, otherewise redemption would not have been possible! If Jesus has died a natural death there would have been no Christianity in the first place, the Jews were the best PR-people Jesus ever could have had!

I also don't understand why people talk of a Judeo-Christian society as though they're working hand in glove with each other.

Christians believe Jesus was the Messiah, Jews believe their messiah is yet to come, so according to Christians the Jewish Messiah must be the antichrist! So many contradictions...

So you see, it's not just Mormons who are dumb.

While you could say many things about Christianity, one of them is not peace. In the name of Christianity, more wars have been started and more people have been slaughtered than the others combined.

Crusades, anyone?

Extermination of indigenous peoples of Africa and the Americas under the guise of Christian missionaries?

And,that's not even counting WWII.

How about wars of christian doctrine - ask the Irish about Catholics vs. Protestants, as well as all the Germans about Lutherans.

Christianity has been more about believe what I believe or be dead than any other religion. Islamic fundamentalism is a much more recent phenomenon.

by Bah%E1'%ED bye!reply 1409/29/2013

Under British rule (East India Company and the Anglican Church), an est. 1.8 billion excess deaths (including 350 million Muslim) occurred between 1858 and 1947 on the Indian subcontinent. This is murder that exceeds even the 65 million that died in the USSR, 80 million that died in Maoist China and the est. 100 million Natives Americans that died in the New World since Columbus. At one time, British Protestants ruled over 75% of the earth and wreaked death and destruction everywhere they went. Not even the Catholic Church can exceed this record.

Note: the current generation of British people are in no way responsible for the past and have no reason be feel guilty of anything. The sins of one generation do not pass onto the next. Please no British-bashing or guilt trips!

The "12 Tribes" is a mythical construct, but even within that myth most of those 12 tribes are lost until the arrival of the Messiah and could not be "polluted."

I don't give a SHIT about what any given individual or spokesperson or political organization SAYS about their own pet religion or ideology or about who did what to who or who was MORE violent or who invaded what,or when,or where,or how....all I care about is what is happening right NOW,in 2013 that I can see with my own goddamn eyes.

And the reality is this:

There have been over 20,000 thousand religiously motivated Jihad terrorist attacks since 2001.

The victims have ranged from peaceful Arab Muslims who happened to be of different sects and innocent children and babies, raped and beheaded to agricultural students in Nigeria shot in their beds.

The common denominator is the Koranically and Hadith mandated,Dark Ages Jihad doctrine that is endorsed,enabled and promulagted by all 5 schools of Islamic jurisprudence to this day.

Unlike the other Abrahamic faiths and traditions which have abandoned their violent,savage tenets and behavior there has been NO reform or self-reflection in Islam in terms of legal scholarship...in fact,to question or criticize it,let alone CHANGE it is still considered a heretical act that is punishable by death.

Sharia law interpreted by the most respected,influential and powerful mainstream clerics,Imams and scholars still edicts and allows for death to gays and apostates,the total restriction of free speech,child sexual abuse and the subjugation, subordination,assault and murder of women.

Like it or not, these are uncomfortable FACTS and I'm not quite not sure why any reasonable,intellectually honest,liberally minded person who agrees with the U.N. Declaration of Human Rights would seek to deny,relativize or apologize for these truths.

Remember...90% of Muslims killed since 1948 have been as a result of Jihad murder. This is not an general indictment on Muslims as most just want to live their lives in peace but rather on the CLERICS, SCHOLARS and APOLOGISTS for them who allow to go unexamined and condemned the violent texts and teachings of the Sunnah which serve as justification for Jihad terror around the globe.

r25, if you want to stop the terrorism, then just have the Western intel agencies stop creating and supplying these terrorist groups. The Muslim Brotherhood was created by British intelligence. Al Qaeda was created by the CIA under the direction of the gentleman pictured below with bin Ladin, Zbigniew Brzezinski, who was the National Security advisor under Jimmy Carter.

These MI6 and CIA created Islamic groups preach a strange syncretism of Islam and Protestant fundamentalism, like the Islamic CIA-narco-dictator of Gambia. The whole point to creating and maintaining these groups is to destabilize any and all Third World democracies, a US and UK foreign policy since the 1950s. The exercise keeps the oil, drugs and arms trade flowing. It's also an excuse to keep spending 40% of the federal budget on "defense," while reducing the 3% the US gov spends on food stamps.

If you want to fight Muslims so much, join Blackwater. Have fun!

Despite what Gambia says..the greatest threats to a free and free-thinking society are Global Corporate Fascism and political Islamism.

It's interesting how you generalize about Muslims...I never said I want to fight Muslims..I said Jihad terrorists should be opposed.

As if people didn't and don't die there. Aside from being a shithole and that people died from natural causes in great numbers, Hindus and Muslims have been killing each other in large numbers for centuries, before the British came and after they left.

If describing all the people on the Indian subcontinent as "indescribably filthy" isn't racist, then what is? If it walks like a racist, it quacks like a racist, then it is a racist. And defending the British colonial record of mass murder is tells the world what you are. 5.2 million Irish were starved to death in the 19th century because they are Catholic. Is that too hard to understand? Over a billion Hindus and Muslims died of disease and starvation during the Anglican Raj over a 200 year period. Is that too difficult for you to understand?

And if these people were all Anglicans?

by Bah%E1'%ED bye!reply 3709/29/2013

I don't really want to step into the debate, but I visited India in 1997 for the first and only time, and "indescribably filthy" would have described it.

by Bah%E1'%ED bye!reply 3809/29/2013

r40, we're talking about India during the period 1757 to 1947. The reason why India is in its current state is the previous 190 years of destabilization by the British. The 1858 date I posted above is the start of the Raj. Interestingly, the British colonial government encouraged various native religions as a form of mind control. The gurus later flocked to the West for more suckers. Think of Theosophy and all the New Age nonsense deriving from it.

This is one of the stupidest comments I have ever heard, and this is not the first time I have heard it.

The "most sacred symbol" is merely a reminder of Jesus death on the cross. THAT is what their religion is all about - his supposed redemptive death. They don't glorify crosses or nails or any other "implement of the death penalty".

Maybe it freaks you out to see a cross but don't extrapolate your idiocy to some tangential misinterpretation of the cross symbol.

r43, who is too stupid to understand words, from another website on the Irish famine:

"Yes, there was a potato blight that damaged much of the crop but there was plenty of food produced in Ireland to support the population. The famine was brought about by the British and their supporters who from 1845-1847 took 26 million bushels of corn, 257k sheep, 481k pigs, 186k Ox, 10k cattle, 4k horses, 1 million gallons of butter, 1.7m gallons of grain alcohol, and 4k ships of peas, beans, rabbits, salmon, honey and potatoes from Ireland to British ports. The forced starvation of the Irish was a culmination of several hundred years of effort by the British to wipeout the Irish, starting with Oliver Cromwell..."

Ireland was producing more than enough food to feed its population, but it was taken away by the Protestant rulers.

You protests too much about the words "indescribably filthy" coursing through the basement of that mind of yours, filled with who knows what monsters.

As for your pretended concern about the pogroms, the Holocaust, the post-war deaths, I suspect you secretly delight in the general mayhem and death of the others. Your words are devoid of any comprehension of human suffering and reveals your true psychopathology.

Jiggs McDonald, NHL Hall of Fame broadcaster speaking in Ontario, says...... "I am truly perplexed that so many of my friends are against another mosque being built in Toronto .

I think it should be the goal of every Canadian to be tolerant regardless of their religious beliefs. Thus the mosque should be allowed, in an effort to promote tolerance.

That is why I also propose that two nightclubs be opened next door to The mosque thereby promoting tolerance from within the mosque.

We could call one of the clubs, which would be gay, "The Turban Cowboy,"and the other a topless bar called "You Mecca Me Hot." Next door should be a butcher shop that specializes in pork, and adjacent to that an open-pit barbecue pork restaurant, called " Iraq of Ribs."

Across the street there could be a lingerie store called " Victoria Keeps Nothing Secret," with sexy mannequins in the window modelling the goods. Next door to the lingerie shop there would be room for an adult sex toy shop , "Koranal Knowledge," its name in flashing neon lights, and on the other side a liquor store called "Morehammered ."

All of this would encourage Muslims to demonstrate the tolerance they demand of us, so their mosque issue would not be a problem for others." Yes we should promote tolerance, and you can do your part by passing this on .
