    64699175[/url]]In this case? To compensate for an obvious lack of demonstrated debating skill.



    Knowing rather a lot about medical applications myself, you can't fool me here - extracurriculars are entirely secondary to a medical application, and are never deal-breakers in the same way as what an applicant has learned on placements in GP surgeries, care homes, etc.
    What's the obvious lack of debating skill? I merely started that point by asking the other dude to not act as though this is a professional debating competition where terms need to be defined. Read my previous points; context is key.

    I would say that your second point is just clutching at straws here; the medical school application involves many factors including extra curriculars. I never said that placements don't matter. I never said that they're deal breakers.

    What's the matter with you? Lol

    salafism (which is just normal Islam)
    I guess most of the world's Muslims are shameless Munafiqs, then.

    I wasn't expecting you to agree that that speech is hateful because that was my initial argument. Now that you've admitted it was hateful, there's no need to analyse which parts.
    Your analytical reading ability seems to have been switched off.

    Your question was:

    Do you honestly believe that it isn't hateful what you said?

    To which my answer was:

    I do think that

    In other words, just to highlight the message, I do honestly believe that it isn't hateful.

    I await the analysis. If you cannot answer a simple question about why you say something then you really shouldn't say it.

    What was hateful about my simple and factual description of Islam and its origins? The only possible point of contention is that Mohammed invented Islam and that it did not spring from a deity.

    I certainly hate Islam, but for very good and reasonable reasons. I do not hate Moslems, though, and even have a few Moslem friends. They are well-adjusted ones who are assimilated into western life and pay as much heed to Islamic doctrine as Roman Catholics do to the Pope's views on contraception.

    You absolute, moronic, ****wit. If you don't know what that means please find out before YOU make a tool of yourself. If you knew and understood Arabic you would realise that what you're saying makes no sense. None at all.

    "Tool"


    Hhahahhhahha dis guy^
    Damn. You sure do get upset over this.

    I even feel sorry for you now.

    I have read your previous posts. You have, as usual, slandered everyone arguing against you as Islamophobes and yet refuse to clarify what you mean by that. Clarifying a definition on request isn't a peculiarity of professional debating competitions (and nor has it been asked of you to define every term, just this one), and that you refuse to do so leaves any reasonable person to conclude that you don't actually know precisely what you mean by it.

    If you use it simply as a slur, then say so. But don't pretend that you know what you mean by it, refuse to state it using various lame excuses ('I study a real subject, not a mickey mouse one like sociology'), and then continue to throw it around indiscriminately (and it must indeed be indiscriminate if you don't have it precisely defined). This kind of obfuscation may be missed by the people you usually debate with, but it won't happen here, I'm afraid.

    So what happened in your life that made it all go so wrong?

    And the quotation marks on tool? Someone said that mean word to you and now you think it's a good insult?

    Suddenly not so sorry for you any more. Good luck studying, you'll need it. A lot.

    You may not like Muslims and their way of life but that really doesn't give you permission to use terms like that.

    If a black man punched you in the face one day, would you name all black people ******* from then on?
    no?

    Then please keep it to yourself.

    Ironic that Muslims bang on about "hatred", yet they have been commanded to hate non-Muslims by Allah by following Abraham's example.

    "Abraham and those with him are the best examples for you to follow. They told the people, "We have nothing to do with you and with those whom you worship besides God. We have rejected you. Enmity and hatred will separate us forever unless you believe in One God. - Quran 60:4
    Everytime you are on a thread you always do this...

    Do you actually know where that quote is from specifically and what it means?

    It's talking about one of the stories of the prophets as he communicates with other Muslims. Like I mean, just, lost for words how you can't spot that.

    Ironic that you claim to have nothing against Islam but are always on every thread which has ANYTHING to do with Muslims to persevere in your desperate attempt of acceptance by others via mocking a religion from which you can't even get your facts right

    You need to prove to me that salafism/wahhabism = Extremism. That's your burden to prove if you wanna continue this discussion.
    No it isn't. I have not claimed that Wahhabism is extreme. I don't believe that. It is literal, and it follows exactly what the Koran tells it to follow, with no interpretation, using just the words in the Koran.

    Unfortunately, it can lead to extreme behaviour, in western terms, when Moslems behave exactly as their ancestors in the seventh century did, keeping women subjugated, setting rules on their travel and supervision and so on. We don't live in the seventh century and most people have moved on.

    Sensible Moslems live in the current century, accept the nice bits of the Koran, ignore the inappropriate parts, integrate into our society and realise that many of those rules that Mohammed formulated for his people (and, let's be clear, these are Mohammed's rules) are not appropriate now.

    Speaking the rules, what do you, as literalist, understand is the meaning of verses 5:29-40 of the Koran?

    Are you actually retarded? I mean a) you write like that because it's who you are or b) you actually believe by writing like that you make me mad.

    I mean whatever it is, it is delicious to see you try so hard. And to know that you will fail your *****y exams. It's so finger-tasting delicious.

    Don't be so ridiculous. 'Moslem' is simply an older transliteration of an Arabic word that is now less widely-used. It's not even remotely equivalent to n****r.

    Neither is 'Moslem' the only outdated term for followers of Islam in English - 'Mohammadan' and its variants have also been used historically, without any intention to offend or demean Muslims, so please do stop with this phoney outrage.

    Oh stop the ******** :rolleyes: I'm saying your education is limited. You said "ISIS, simple as." Lmao goodbye with that incorrect unaware nonsense.
    I was assuming OP was talking about the existence of islamophobia today. I'm saying that ISIS is the main cause of islamophobia (along with 9/11)) in this generation. If I walked to a random guy in town why do you think islamaphobia exists they will say isis/9-11.

    I asked the question and this was the answer I got:
    A Muslim in Arabic means"one who gives himself to God," and is by definition, someone who adheres to Islam. By contrast, a Moslem in Arabic means"one who is evil and unjust" when the word is pronounced, as it is in English, Mozlem with a z.
    Most websites are using this definition so don't call this ridiculousness.
    Is it close to '******' now or will you come up with some more of your 'facts'?
