    It's a statistical trick, in other words. And utterly without value.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Small number statistics hu?
    If every green ball has 6 kids, and the red ones 1 or two, how many generations before the green ones outnumber the reds? If you're that good in maths, surely someone has explained logaritmic functions to you?

    How about we just don't quote statistics from Wikipedia, as if they're an authoritative source.

    Unless he was trolling me, of course.
    Quote from Wiki regarding the Muslim diaspora in the UK: "Between 2001 and 2009 the Muslim population increased almost 10 times faster than the non-Muslim population."

    The number of muslims tripled between 1960 and 1970. It's a miracle we aren't all in mosques now.

    Yes logarithmic functions start slow. They also tend to shoot up rapidly when you're not looking.

    Jesus- pun intended- arguing anything by just quoting direct passages from your uber book, you know, the one many people dispute the voracity of is so vacuous.

    Can you not think outside of your scripture and try to engage in a more human way, rather than attempting to bash us over the head with the burning-in-hell stuff?

    Pretty sure anything which can impede your ability to make rational decisions is banned in Islam. (Except obviously the Kiran :)) This is why Muslim's are not supposed to drink alcohol.

    This post is not targeted at anyone in particular.

    The ultimate irony is that alcohol is an Arabic word.

    Jesus(AS) son of Mary will soon descend and kill the pig and break the cross. And then once everyone has tasted death, the trumpet will be blown and suddenly everyone (including the athiests) will be up on the Earths surface for the Day of Judgement a day of terror, when people will
    flee from their own Mothers, fathers, brothers, wife and children. Even the prophets (peace be upon them all) won't feel safe that day!

    When is it? Only Allah knows.

    "They ask you, [O Muhammad], about the Hour: when is its arrival? In what [position] are you that you should mention it? To your Lord is its finality.
    You are only a warner for those who fear it. It will be, on the Day they see it, as though they had not remained [in the world] except for an afternoon or a morning thereof."

    Muslims not drinking must be the ultimate irony, I come up with some crazy bollocks when I'm pissed so whoever wrote the Qur'an must have been off his nut on tennents super strength.

    Leviticus is the source of most far-right religious hate mongering, but it's also full of really weird shit which pretty much no Christian follows.
    That is the thrust of my point, if the Bible is definitely correct about everything then why are people not still doing the mad things that are in Leviticus, I would suspect it is because society and human morality shows these things to be false and improper. I realise I'm not exactly breaking new ground with my musings.
    Rather simply because that is part if the Law covenant which only applied to the nation of Israel. Jesus setup a new covenant which replaced it.

    And yet the OT is still the basis for a large amount of Christian belief. For example, the JW's edict on blood transfusions are all based on OT scripture.

    You often hear how Jesus brought the new shit from God but most Christians still treat the old shit as just as important, rather than the origin story that it would be treated as if they followed the path set out by the man they named their religion after.

    Evangelicals seem to put a great emphasis on the OT, and in America circumcision is pretty common, although it isn't required according to the NT.

    I also wondered how Evangelicals could respect people getting really rich, since Jesus condemned rich people, what with the camel and the eye of the needle.

    Even more so getting rich through their megachurch economy. I don't think evangelical megachurches asking their huge followship for generous donations and selling them shitloads of expensive crap books isn't much different from turning the temple into a den of thieves. Today, Jesus would probably throw over the tables full of those books in the churches, and they would stone him for that.

    But in the OT, if I remember right, it's a sign of God's blessing if you became wealthy. I wonder if that's the justification for their (imo strikingly un-christian) approval of rich people.

    Maybe because they were aware of it? I mean, in our monasteries, beer was simply drinkable bread. And it was always okay to drink it.

    Not an opinion, just wondering.

    edit: maybe also because back in the times progress, science, culture and all that happened in the Islamic world, while Christian Europeans spent their lives wading through the streets drowned in their faeces.

    It's called the prosperity Gospel and it's so contrary to Christ's teachings there's not enough time in the universe to try and make sense of it. The basic gist is that if you are poor you aren't righteous enough and God is punishing you for your failings. If you're filthy rich then you are being rewarded by the almighty.

    It's why you can get politicians thumping the Bible while wanting to deny folks food stamps and healthcare.

    Folks like that make me wish hell could be real.

    Well, they can claim that, but they can't call themselves Christians then. I know they do, but they're worse Christians than communists then.
