    The Muslims from all over the world converge at the Grand Holy Kaaba to perform their Hajj or Umrah. Both of these spiritual itineraries are brimmed with Allah's (SWT)’s blessings and will. Umrah, unlike Hajj, is a lesser pilgrimage that can be undertaken at any time during the year. It is, in fact, a Divine call of Almighty to the chosen ones who immerse themselves in lauding Allah’s glory and omniscience.

    To undertake a safe and sound spiritual itinerary, you have to consult a reputable travel company and select a suitable Umrah package for you and your family. The smart choice of a certified travel company is really important as it is responsible for all the mandatory Umrah arrangements ranging from transportation and accommodation. I ha…

    A Beautiful Hadith about the Great Holy places for Muslims in the world.

    Hazrat Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) said:

    Don’t prepare yourself for a journey except to “3” Mosques, Al-Haram Mosque, Al-Aqsa Mosque, and my Mosque (Al-Nabvi Mosque).

    This Hadith is enough to every Muslim to understand that what are the Holy places for Muslims in the world?

    Al-Haram Mosque:​​​​​​

    Millions of the Muslims perform Hajj and Umrah at this place.  Umrah can be performed at any time of the year because it is not mentioned anywhere in Islamic laws that Umrah is obligatory for every Muslims. Muslims only perform it for getting the happiness of Allah and if they perform it successfully then they get uncounted and unlimited rewards from Allah. Although Hajj is oblig…

    When you are young you think you have it all very nearly figured out. You think that its all simple and one dimensional.
    Then you get older and find out that things are not so simple. What at first sight appears to be one-dimensional often turns out to be multi-dimensional.

    Male-female seems to be one dimensional but its not that simple. Its actually two dimensional.

    male
    female
    both (hermaphrodite)
    neither (schizoid)



    Its the same with atheism vs theism which at first appears to be one dimensional.

    Religion is how autistic people (strictly speaking hyper-empirical people) see civilization. They see a distorted image because they do not fully understand emergence. (Law and life are emergent properties.)

    According to the Jewish law, non-Jews are not obligated to convert to Judaism, but they are required to observe the Seven Laws of Noah. Noahidism is just a fancy term for civilization and civilized laws. Or at least, that is what it should be.

    Should we be atheists? Should we be theists? Should we be Catholics? Should we be 7th day? Should we be Buddhists?

    Its all so confusing. But the real question is not should we do this or should we do that.

    The real question is why is there so much confusion in the first place?

    If I were running a country I would want everyone to know exactly what is going on so everyone could see why I was doing what I was doing and so everyone could make informed decisions.

    Yet in spite of thousands on newspapers and news channels confusion abounds.

    Why so much darkness? Why so much smoke? Where is it all coming from? Who is getting rich off all this confusion?

    Civilization is my country. Objectivity is my religion.

    Trolls

    January 11, 2019 by Granpa

    Nobody ever changed their mind because others mocked and ridiculed them. Mocking and ridiculing only causes people to entrench themselves even deeper in their own beliefs.


    We all get angry when we see rational human beings acting like animals. Thats normal.

    The thing you need to understand is that trolls are not rational human beings acting like animals. They are animals pretending to be rational human beings.

    Rational human beings do things for rational reasons. Animals do things precisely because they are irrational. Animals get up in the morning and ask themselves what is the most irrational thing they can do that day. Then they go out and do exactly that.

    Homosexuality

    January 6, 2019 by Granpa

    Pretend bigotry and Nazi chic, particularly the black SS officer's uniform, has been widely adopted and fetishized by underground heterosexual BDSM lifestyle.

    Non-pretend (and therefore unsafe) bigotry which can be and often is between any 2 people of any sex becomes by analogy "homosexuality".

    The pejorative terms "qu**rs", "fa**ots", "ho*****uals", and "gay_people" refer to 4 totally different groups of bigots. The proper terms would be autistics, aspergers, schizoid, and (undomesticated) sociopaths. Of course not all autistics etc are bigots.

    What is mindfulness and what is Samadhi? What exactly are the “Deviant Dharma Doors and External Ways” that the Buddha often warns about in the Sutras? The answer can be easily illustrated by a simple example: If the human body is a car and the mind is the driver, then mindfulness and samadhi refers to the training of the driver to be more patient, more responsible, more attentive and competent. On the other hand, Deviant or External Ways seek merely to upgrade or modify the car to extreme degrees rather than train the driver to be more emotionally stable, skilled or competent—attributing any accident, shortcoming or unfortunate event to be an engineering or technical issue while totally ignoring the driver’s capability or responsibility.  …

    Belief

    December 27, 2017 by Granpa

    A theist is someone that believes that God exists. An atheist is someone that believes God does not exist.


    The truth is you shouldn't believe anything. You should always know.

    If I have a coin with two heads and I flip it then I know that it will land heads.

    If it has one heads and one Tails then I don't know what it will land but I still know the probability Is 50/50.

    If I don't know how many heads or tails the coin has then I don't know what the probability is but I still know what the Bayesian probability is. The Bayesian probability is the degree to which you expect it.

    At no point is it necessary to believe anything.

    Ark of salvation

    It isn't God that you need saved from. God is on your side. It's the devil that wants to send you to the lake of fire (the sun). In fact the devil is the Lake of Fire.

    The devil is not evil because no thing and no person is infinitely bad. But the devil is infinitely psychopathic.

    The devil can't be reasoned with. He can't be bargained with. He doesn't feel fear or pity or remorse. And he absolutely will not stop. Ever!


    The only way to deal with the devil (and fascists in general) is to ignore him. To not care. Being ignored is the only thing they can't take. You shouldn't care what the devil thinks of you. You shouldn't care about the devil. It can be hard to ignore the devil when y…

Mary McCarthy is not much remembered today other than her best-selling 1963 novel, The Group. Mary had long been a member of New York City's literati, a clique of cultural elites who then, as now, were overwhelmingly secular and cynical and as a very alienated lapsed Catholic, Mary McCarthy fit right in.

    Two Palestinian families who have been living in East Jerusalem since 1956, were evicted from their homes on Sunday after an Israeli court rejected their appeal filed against the eviction. The eviction comes after increasing international pressure on Israel to stop settlement activity and end home evictions.

    Israeli security forces entered the homes at 6:00 a.m. (local time) and forcibly removed the family and international activists who were also living in the homes. At least 19 children were among those removed. Al Jazeera reports that a family was beaten with batons as they tried to get back into their house. JTA reports that Jewish families moved into the homes shortly after the Palestinian families were evicted.

    According to the committee's report, "The wearing of the full veil is a challenge to our republic. This is unacceptable." It added, "We must condemn this excess". It criticised the practice as being contrary to French principles of secularism and equality, and called for the F…

    Ive got the following message from Gabriel Carlyle in the religionwiki facebook page


    Gabriel Carlyle heeft een bericht naar de leden van March on Gaza - Dec. 31st, 2009 - UK Supporters gestuurd.


    Onderwerp: Help needed to cover unanticipated costs incurred by UK Freedom Marchers

    (See bottom of this message for details of how to make a donation)

    People have now returned from the Gaza Freedom March and lots of progress was made but perhaps not in the way that was expected.

    Most of the marchers were trapped in Cairo as the Egyptian Government banned any local services (buses/taxis etc) from moving them any nearer to Gaza, and large marches and demonstrations then ensued in the capital, highlighting Egypt's complicity in the seige of Gaza. This was …

    Faith healing

    February 2, 2010 by Sgt.Friso


    Faith healing is a concept that religious belief ("faith") can bring about healing—either through prayers or rituals that, according to adherents, evoke a divine presence and power toward correcting disease and disability in particular indicated individuals. Belief in divine intervention in illness or healing is related to religious belief in general.

    I am surfing a lot on the internet. When I was surfing on youtube I have found this video. It is going about false prophets from a christian point of view.

    This is the opinion from the original uploader: People need to stand firmly on Scripture and resist the allure of false prophets like Benny Hinn and their spiritual poison. The Bible makes it clear that in the last days, the power of Satan and those he controls will become great, and that they will use that power to deceive many people.
