    I'm changing a fuse and the socket says it requires a 13A fuse, would it be a bad idea to use a 5A (that's all I have in the cupboard)? Would using the 5A fuse in the 13A socket be dangerous at all or..?

    I'm a Muslim because I have confidence that Muhammad(pubh) was a prophet and the Quran is the final testament.

    I'm a socialist because I believe power belongs to the people unweighted by wealth or status.

    Less current. So it won't overheat. I'll take the risk

    that's merely tautologial - you haven't explained *why* you're a muslim - telling me "I'm a muslim because I'm a muslim (pretty much)" is just circular reasoning. do you believe beause your parents do or do you believe in it because you've seen evidence for this particular religion?

    I'm a socialist because I believe power belongs to the people unweighted by wealth or status.
    define "power" - democracy is a form of power, but how is wealth a form of "power" in the same sense in a society like ours?

    Religion doesn't cause harm. People do.

    There is no evidence. Religions are based on faith, not evidence.

    People's actions are being guided by religion. So I ask you again, why does religion cause more harm than good?

    what about when people are specifically following the guidance/rules of particular religions such as your own? do you think their motives are outside of religious reasonings such as religious martyrdom and doing the work of allah (e.g. being the administrators of anti-blasphemy or anti-apostacy rules)?

    Martyr. This day and age it's difficult to find one. Also works of Allah? How do u know what God wants, how do u know they're doing what Allah wants them to do. How do u even know what they r saying or the reason is due to Allah or Islamic?

    You're calling A-levels crappy yet the level of knowledge given there still seems too much for you to grasp so you resort to religious explanations.

    My confidence in my religion doesn't stem from my confidence in my parents. I have confidence in Islam because I find it highly unlikely that Muhammad (pbuh) was a liar or suffered from acute hallucinations. I also generally agree with his teachings and practices.

    We use money as the currency to transfer goods and services. More money = greater ability to demand goods and services.
