    First of all who possessed the Francis I was having a discussion with about metaphysical energy, and turned him into a ranting anti-Muslim fanatic. That guy and this guy surely cannot be the same person???

    Second, that first guy I was talking to would have known that 'reality' is an illusion. There is no one reality. Or more specifically, we humans all see it differently from everyone else. Each of our realities is a thought structure created by our own experiences, thought processes, presuppositions and upbringing. Yes we can make basic assumptions about the reality we live in; the more we move away from that, the more we need to be aware of our limitations built in by the human condition.

    They're doing what christans did to the pagans, the whole "convert or die" thing I mean, and they too claim it's of peace...oh the irony, the irony hit me where it hurts...so ironic. Either way, I dislike islam for their treatment of lizards however, and not strictly for the other reason people hate on them

    Islam is not much different today.
    The original Muslims themselves did not preserve The Torah and The Gospels that they claim BOTH confirmed their Quran and Faith.
    Think of it - There were never any Islamic Gospels and Scriptures and they is eXactly why that Muslims were never able to preserve any of these Scriptures that are supposed to have eXisted that confirm their quran.
    Not only do Muslims have no Scriptures, no Gospels, no Artifacts, no genealogies, no Chronicles and No Manuscripts and no evidence of any eXistance before Mohammad. But ALSO Muslims have no REAL TIME Live, Recorded - REAL TIME event before mohammad that shows that the People Called Ishmaelites even ever eXisted.
    Think of it - Nothing eXists NOTHING - Outside Of The Bible - That shows that a people called Ishmaelites even ever eXisted.
    There is no REAL TIME Live, Recorded - REAL TIME event of the eXistance of anyone related to Ishmael. And the Quran itself never mentions a single son of Ishmael. Of all 12 sons of Ishmael, not a single son of Ishmael is even mentioned in the Quran.
    This is why Mohammad is a prophet, a revelator and a messenger unto all who proclaim His message.

    If you are trying to say that Islam in itself is a radicalized religion...I disagree.

    I believe Muslims believe that Mohamed's information is the third sequel to the torah... simply validating what is right, correcting what they believe to be wrong interpretations and providing further information from G!d thru Mohamed.

    But I agree that radicalized Christianity, Judaism, Islam, ...any religion is a huge issue towards peace in this world... interfaith work is our hope.

    Not sure what you're trying to achieve, but I don't think it aligns with the topic. If you're interested in discussing Islamic theology you can ask questions in a new post in the Islamic section and perhaps someone with the expertise can answer your questions.

    It seems you have contradicted yourself half a dozen times or more in the above post. Are you a bot? Yay or nay will suffice.

    I have a sneaking suspicion that the world map, along with population count(s), ergo economic activities from the time of the pharaohs to the present day ---have never changed a wit.

    There still are few Chinese in Australia! LOL.
    Still lots of Eskimos in the Arctics.
    Fishmen of the coasts ---as each warrior caste staked a claim come and go.

    Each locale has had their own brand of culture and it hasn't changed.

    My understanding... After WWII since Australia was almost invaded by Japan, they shut down immigration of Asians... But since Japan operates on a 500 year plan, after the US rebuilt Japanese steel and manufacturing (like we do after we blow things up) It regained an economic foundation so when Australia opened back up, much asian money came in to buy buildings and land...(like they did in US)... it is all very interesting watching money flow around the world.
