Pick if you want, why be afraid to have your beliefs challenged? I know there are at least 3 religious people in our philosophy class (1 muslim) who still seem to stand by their faith in spite of the philosophical arguments used.

I studied philosophy in college and I hated it, principally because I found it was just a memorising quote competition.

Can you explain your quote in your own words?
You did le bac right?

Islam has a philosophical tradition within its very core. We need to study philosophy but at the same time hold true to Islam. As long as your iman is strong and you don't feel doubt when you enter into philosophical debates then it should be fine. It's a valid thing to say that we should not study philosophy because of the doubt it may cause... but also a very ignorant thing to say because Philosophy is something important within Islamic Theology.

But you can't just take risks when it's a subject you're going to be studying in depth for the next two years...
What do you mean by taking risks? Do you think that in order to be acquainted with philosophy you necessarily have to change your subject of studying into philosophy?

Why are you trying to turn this into "muslims don't do philosophy because it could challenge their faith" when several muslims in the thread have already said that they chose philosophy and it didnt affect them
I don't see how I'm turning this into such a discussion when this is already reflected in the implicit attitude of the original poster. It's very unlikely to do philosophy without your beliefs being affected, and even if people engaged in the subject still have faith, their faith is not comparable to that of fixed religious beliefs. A survey shows that only 14.6% of professional philosophers believe in God. It's also important to realise that even philosophers' beliefs in God differ between individuals.

I can tell mate, by your clear eagerness to explore the realm of the English language.

I think you're getting a bit too wild with those images mate, you're just too much for me.

You're probably the type of guy that takes a picture of a cloud, and then is so crazy that you just delete it instantly.

That's not necessarily the case because if it was then people would have had the chance to study it in Muslim countries.

You do realise that I was referring to this thread only, you cannot say that the religion is afraid of an A Level subject because one user has concerns about their faith in God...

I almost certain that it is taught in Muslim countries...

Anyway, you're judging an entire religion on the followers?:bricks:
