so far i've seen the verses only commanding us to stay away from those who make fun of Islam.
but i'll try and find out more on this.going to update later, if i managed to find the right answer.
so far i've heard advice only telling us to stay away from Muslims...
are you really going to look for the answer for this question on the quran or something like this? Can't you think for yourself? Can't you reach the conclusion that killing someone for mocking Islam or any other reason is absolutely wrong by yourself? Do you need the quran to tell you what's right and wrong? don't you have a mind of your own?

yes, and when he was done with the old ones, he looked for a 9-year-old child. and no, she had not reached puberty yet. it is a proven scientific fact that people back then reached puberty much later than we do now, so it is not possible for a 9-year-old girl at that time have reached puberty already.

I do not recognise any of these countries as true Islamic states, Saudi for example only pick and choose from the Sharia, they add their own laws and they are oppressive towards women. There is no country in the world that runs by true Sharia law.
this is, of course, the standard answer
why is it that no country in the world runs by "true Shariah law" ?
simple : because it's impossible.
Muslims think that a State run by "true" Shariah would be some sort of perfect Shan-griLa, so it is unlikely that anything close to it will ever materialize.
In the meantime, we have "imperfect Shariah" at work in many "Muslim" States : not really a nice sight

Jaysus you started it by saying 'the awkward moment when was hitler was jewish', so ur the one saying pointless things, since that statement was nothing to do with what I was saying, which was, that just because for example hitler committed atrocitys and osam ba bin laden did, dusnt mean we should judge christianity or islam on their example. Ur the one going off topic, and I decided to correct ur point, off topic as it was. Having jewish blood is irrevelant completely, sincr as I said beforr, he based it evidently on religion not race, I was trying to demonstrate to you in a lighthearted way that he was christian despite his race. Logic.Calm down, Lol, u dnt need to reply, but peace, out ;-) x
LEARN to right properly, I can't even sit and read this and to be honest it's human nature to judge so get over it.

Islam has bullied the world into silence? I think not. Rcentley an American Muslim was beaten up and killed, a note was left on her body saying 'go back home'.
Regarding the cartoonist, he made a mockery out of the Prophet, I'm sorry if we regard our religion as something of great importance, it really isn't my fault that other religions don't stand up for their religons as much as a lot of Muslim's do...
Sorry to butt in here but standing up for somebody is something, killing others as a result of it is compelte and utter ignorance
Mocking Islam is perfectly acceptable! Although I can't think of anyone who has been murdered for mocking Christianity in recent years, and the same can't be said about Islam (which doesn't make my passionate advocating of multiculturalism much easier)... Still, Dara O'Briain made the point that he doesn't mock Islam simply because neither he nor his audience actually knows enough about it to make any good jokes!

Common sense rarely enters into creationist arguments though, so that's fine. And evolution has been tested in controlled environments, and the amount of physical evidence for it happening otherwise is overwhelming. Also, of course gravity is more of a certainty, I was just criticising the point people try to make when they harp on the theory of evolution.
Evolution according to the theory, no offence is supposed to happen over time and their should strong physical change in body shape, nature, dietary, etc which can't be shown in controlled environments or in any short amount of period. The problem behind evolution is the missing links, in terms of fossils because their has been thousands and thousands of fossils yet many aren't their which show the gradual physical change.
Yes, there are. The confusion stems from the concept of the missing link, while there was of course no point at which apes 'became' humans, it was all gradual. Read a decent book on evolution, there's loads of evidence for it, including those fossils.
