Re: Unjust Islamic Laws should be repealed

https://www.who.int/reproductivehealth/topics/fgm/prevalence/en/ shows the countries where Female Genital Mutilation is practised. There are many Islamic countries where it is not practised at all e.g. Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Turkey, Mauritania, Tunisia...

Re: We are not made of dust. We are made of star dust.

"Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me." - The Bible (New International Version). We are not born sinners as the Bible claims. We are born sufferers. Without our consent and without any fault of our own, we are conceived and born into a life full of suff...

Re: Unjust Islamic Laws should be repealed

Dear Compassionist, In "Muhammed's words Book 41 Kitab Al Adab, Hadith 5251" Muhammed says "a girl's clitoris should be cut off".To a Muslim, Muhammed's word IS LAW! Circumcision is cutting off the fore-skin, a useless piece of skin, and has no influence on sexual activity. Cutt...

We are not made of dust. We are made of star dust.

The Bible says in Genesis 3:19 (New International Version): "By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return." We are made of atoms made inside stars. We are not made of dust. We are...

Is this sciene or pseudoscience?

Is this science or pseudoscience? https://www.brucelipton.com/ He is uniting spirituality with science. Apparently he is an expert on epigenetics. As far as I can tell, he is mixing science with pseudoscience. What do you think? Please see https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Bruce_Lipton

Re: Unjust Islamic Laws should be repealed

Dear Compassionist, I think you should worry more about the women under Shariah Law and less about the other animals. under Shariah Law, all women should have their clitoris and other erogenous body parts cut out and (called FGM) so they they have nothing there except scar tissue so they don't get ...

Unconscious determinants of free decisions in the human brain

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18408715 Abstract There has been a long controversy as to whether subjectively 'free' decisions are determined by brain activity ahead of time. We found that the outcome of a decision can be encoded in brain activity of prefrontal and parietal cortex up to 10 s be...

Thank you. I think if everyone became a pacifist vegan, everyone would be better off as veganism is better for people, animals and the planet.

Re: Unjust Islamic Laws should be repealed

Dear Compassionist, Some more on Shariah Law: Four male witnesses willing to testify are nescessary to prove the innocense of a girl who was raped. Otherwise the girl will be stoned to death for adultery. that's why rapes are never reported in a Muslim nation! It's legal to rape any woman not weari...

Reality doesn't care, so, we must

Reality doesn't care about who lives and who dies. It doesn't care about who suffers and who doesn't. That's why 99.99% of all species to ever evolve on Earth are already extinct. That's why there are natural disasters and diseases which cause so much death, destruction and suffering. Unless we wise...

Unjust Islamic Laws should be repealed

We should have a worldwide campaign to repeal all of the ten unjust Islamic laws below: 1. Death penalty for apostasy. 2. Death penalty for blasphemy. 3. Death penalty for homosexuality. 4. Death penalty for adultery. 5. Son gets twice as much inheritance as a daughter. 6. Two female witnesses are r...

Re: If you could prevent your existence, would you?

Life is what it is. We just have to make the most of it and make it the best we can for ourselves and for others. I'm not sure how helpful it is to dwell too long on paradoxes like this! It's not helpful. My mood is low. I am struggling with chronic pain, insomnia, nightmares, flashbacks. I am tryi...

If you could prevent your existence, would you?

If you could prevent your existence, would you? Why? Why not? Life consists of both suffering and enjoyment. Some suffer more, some enjoy more. I have suffered much more than I have enjoyed. I continue to suffer daily. I think others would be better off if I were never conceived. I think I would be ...
