Ok, I apologize, I should have kept that to myself. Kickbutt, I sincerely apologize if I offended you, you are right, I should have been more compassionate.

"And on that stupid, stupid, stupid argument about Egypt being some made up thing - i could buy a plane ticket right now and bloody well go there couldn't i!?!?!? hdfweahgdhj gjshf sd gjh fb !!! I'M GOING INSANE!!! i can't control myself when people make stupid reasonings like that, when they can be easily played off! "

Angus, I didn't mean it literally at all my friend, I am sorry if I angered you.

I sometimes go out of line when I am arguing in something I believe in.

Thaiboxerken, thanks for taking the time to look it up, at least see what the Koran has to offer.

Honestly, I didn't expect to be attacked this much, I'm sorry.

By the way, Kickbutt, I don't think its fair to say I have no compassion to anyone thats different than me. I am not black, but I have been in protests that are against discrmination, I have many friends with different beliefs and opinions.

My comment on gays isn't really true either, I was just frustrated, I support equal rights for everyone. Anyways, I apologize, I hope I am forgiven, but my beliefs on religion are still the same.

Science does not discriminate. Religion and people do.

More like the Fundies in every religion.

I believe there are absolutely some things that should be kept to ones self. I do not agree with alot of things..things that go against what I believe as both a person and a Christian..but to bring them on the boards is wrong.

We each(of those who believe), have different belief systems...but what the heck..in the martail arts we are one in that we all love the arts.

That is what should count on these boards.


Peace,
Tae

Some interesting quotes from the Q'uran

http://www.angelfire.com/de/knowledgeoftruth/despise.html

This type of stuff scares the hell out of me, as does most religious zealotry.
I do not choose to follow the teachings of ANYONE who claims to have been spoken to by "GOD". Especially someone who sees God by travelling into the desert and fasting until he has visions. If someone did that today they would lock him in an institution.
Most people I debate religion with do not even know what their respective scriptures entail, or they choose to ignore anything they dissagree with. People like to pick and choose the parts of a religion that sound the best TO THEM. (sort of like JeetKuneDo) And I guess that's ok, but don't call yourself a Christian/Muslim/whatever if you are only picking out parts of scripture that you like, unless you get a kick out of being intellectually dishonest. Maybe we can have a thread that starts with Christianity VS Islam: what would be better to protect you from the real-life threat of eternal damnation???

I'm a Christian. That's funny Ti-Kwon-Leap, it always seemed to me that agnostics had no proof for their view. I don't intend to make anyone angry, though. Can anyone prove that there is no God? No. There is much scientific evidence that there was a flood 4,000 years ago though. Israel has become a nation just as was prophesied. Babylon, Media and Persia, Greece, and Rome were all prophesied to be the ruling nations before there time. Please, don't anyone use murders and the poor condition to prove there is no God, because that is just what the Bible said whould happen. It's funny how some agnostics claim the Earth to be millions of years old. Does anyone realize we are getting closer and closer to the sun. That's why some people are concerned about what they call global warming. If the Earth is millions of years old than there is no way that any life could have survived within the last at least 20,000 years(very conservative) Everything would have been ice. Jesus Christ died for everyone. All you have to do is accept what He already did. Just like takeing a free gift. Yeah, it's faith. But, so is anything else. One thing I know is that my life has been better because of JC. If you disagree, that's cool. It's not my attention in any way to force anything on anyone. I'd just like you to just be open. Well take care. I usally never write post this long. It's funny as much as some people are on here, they must never get to train or have way better jobs than I do. The latter is highly possible.
