Extremely not scientific

Thats a very strange reason to leave /j


DoctorLove01

Not really, If something contradicts science, then it must be wrong. Science is our best attempt at understanding the world after all.


confeebeam

Oh i was replying to Marcus haha


Rbrtwllms

🤣🤣🤣🤣


AdEasy819

The point he is making is that a modern religion’s place is not to explain how the world works but to give its people a sense of spirituality and faith in something greater and more permanent than themselves and to answer questions that scientific progress won’t, such as those that deal with the soul or afterlife. Leaving any religion because “it’s not scientific” is technically strange because it’s not supposed to be. However, since Islam seems more like a social cult that cares more about trampling on the rights of others (primarily those in its society that are most vulnerable) instead of promoting any sort of unique spirituality or message in the first place, I can see why someone who is more skeptical or scientifically inquisitive would leave it.

irondragon2

Is this man a medical doctor or just holds a PhD in theology or something of the like?


theinfidelwretch

He said in his son's marriage advertisement that he has a MBBS degree so medical doctor I guess.


irondragon2

Just as good as Munna Bhai, MBBS. I feel that mixing religion and science gets muddt very quickly. For example if the Hadith says something you will want to back it up using your degree and your status.


theinfidelwretch

Oh yessir! His experience is as credible as Munna Bhai MBBS. Was a funny movie I remember watching back in my childhood.


irondragon2

Hahaha! I'm glad you got my reference! I only watched it recently and it got me in the feels 😭


theinfidelwretch

Just asking, where are you from? I am from Bangladesh.


irondragon2

That's cool! I know some people from Bangladesh. I am from India.


DrAristocra7

Weak Observation of Universe


confeebeam

Hey, this is irrelevant, but i see youre an ex-shia, do you know the difference between that and sunni?


SmileSong

Not op but to make a long story short, after Muhammad died people were in disagreement about his successor. Shia’s believed Ali, Muhammad’s son in law, was the rightful successor. Sunni’s believed Abu Bakr, Muhammad’s father in law, was the rightful successor. Thus the split occurs.


DrAristocra7

On top of the other reply and having seen the Sunni and Shia practice of Islam, I feel like Shias take a more academic approach to Islam. For example the way Shia do WUDU is different. For Sunnis WUDU is almost like a physical cleaning of your body parts. They spent a lot of water washing everything including nose mouth etc. In Shia the WUDU is almost symbolic. They wipe arms, head feet etc. With wet hands. Logically if you think about it, WUDU should be an act of intent on your soul towards prayer, rather than a physical cleansing of your body. Other things include the reverance of Ali's descendents as holy figures up to the 12th imam, called imam Mahdi which apparently disapeared and will return before judgment Day to save humanity or fight it in some big war or something like that. Also Shias don't accept a lot of hadiths that Sunnis regard as 'sahih'

Reading the Quran 💩


JamesPotterPro

Yes, yes, yes. I was programmed to feel a certain reverence and awe whenever the Quran was read or heard. This stops you from critically analyzing the actual words. Once I started actually reading it, like you'd read a book, I realized how small and petty it was, for the supposed word of the creator of the universe. The creator of the universe needs to spend half his book threatening you with hell if you don't believe he exists. NO ONE WHO EXISTS NEEDS TO THREATEN YOU TO MAKE SURE YOU BELIEVE HE EXISTS! Also how the Quran drums on about how God is all just and all kind, yet the only kind of justice he could come up with was infinite torture or a garden with prostitutes, and no in-between. Whoever wrote the Quran couldn't imagine anything better than trees with shade and fresh fruit and rivers of water and honey and wine. Mohammed would lose his shit if he knew I live in Africa and can have any fresh fruit delivered to my door and fresh water on tap. Who wants to drink from a river and only eat fruits from trees, and live in tents with a bunch of virgins? Is that the best the creator of everything could come up with? The top 1% already live in far better conditions than the paradise described by the Quran.


titty_factory

And not to mention Muhammad lived in the desert so long he longed something green and therefore he said the paradise would be predominantly green. I was like bitch please, I live in archipelagic southeast asia, I don't need to die to see places where everything is green and not dry.

paradoxically_cool

Illogical human creation. tbh, in my deep search for truth, if I was convinced that God with his Devine wisdom brought down a moral guide to his creation which is internally consistent and provable, I would have devoted my life to that... wife beating, murder and all... I went through al "mushtabihat", the "fitna" time in islam, also, how Christianity started and before it Judaism and their own internal theological differences and reached the conclusion that all religions are human made, and God as described in holy books doesn't exist. Humanity is better off studying philosophy and developing humanism further.

hachiman

The 1990's article in the Encyclopedia on Muhammad is so skeptical and facts based it totally shattered by belief in Mo's perfection. It flat out called him a bandit warlord who supported himself by attack caravans and sacking towns to support himself. It put the first cracks in my childhood iman.

lembdadelta

Any religion can be interpreted in various ways, especially Islam. For me it's the fact that everything is interpreted in a violent, bigoted way. It's the community I have a problem with more than the scripture, the Quran isn't worse than the Bible or the Torah, but Muslims...


ItsEmilyyy

My islam teacher was scoffing and complaining about how human rights are stupid and we should just cut thieves hands to prevent crime 🤡


lembdadelta

I mean, sure maybe it would work in theory, in practicality this isn't 4th century Arabian desert. Most people from other religions don't seek to interpret things this literally, except muslims. There's Sufis, Quraniyoon, they're great but a tiny minority.
