Sudanese woman sentenced to stoning death over adultery claims

Post by Talwar_Punjabi on Fri Jun 01, 2012 9:45 pm

First topic message reminder :

I am utterly dismayed and to say the least, distraught, that this sentence may be carried out. I do hope there is an international protest at this.

The Devil doesn't exist either. He is as much a fantasy as God is or any other fictional character in a story.

Actually, I find the Devil to be an even more ludicrous concept than God - and even more implausible. Yet the Devil is entirely necessary because all good STORIES have conflict and antagonists. On a spiritual level, the Devil is entire superfluous other than as a scapegoat to keep God's ass clean.

Just try fooling about with the spirit world and you will get a wake up call.

If the evil in the world is not the Devil's fault then how has it come about?

You would find anything that make sense unacceptable because you just like to disagree, based on just refuting the obvious.

This thread has been "off-topic" since April 16. Just saying.

You really are a funny one. One minute it's all man's fault for not heeding God's word and commands and his insatiable lust for worship and the next it's the Devil's fault.

Try this on for size, polyglide. Walk around in it for a few minutes and tell me how it feels. How about none of that nonsense exists at all. There is no spirit world, no devils, demons, angels or gods. No ghosts, no supernatrual magic, no paranormal activity. Just imagine it for a moment. What would that mean for your life? Do you ever suppose that you might just be able to be happy with the one life you have. Enjoy it. Be amazed and astounded and gobsmacked at the beauty of the world and its people. Most of us are pretty good. It's only the few that wreck it and make people like you paranoid about the world. It's just not that bad.

This soap opera that you think carries on in the ether beyond the veil is just pure and utter lunacy. The problems in our world are down to us to fix. God ain't gonna fix it and the Devil ain't causing it. We are much better now than we were 100 years ago. Think about it.

Greek Bible

Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary1 the devil,2 as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour.

1 Peter 5:8

  1. antidikos, opponent; Satan, arch enemy, adversary.
  2. diabolos, one that casts through, dividing.

Greek Bible

Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers,1 sober, faithful in all things.

1 Timothy 3:11

  1. diabolos, one that casts through, dividing.

Snowyflake, I wonder if you have any sense at all.

Of course it is mans fault for not heading God's word, it is also the Devil who is leading man astray and people like you make his intentions far easier than they should be.

Some religious nutters are too dumb to be mentally ill.

I think religious nuttery is mental illness. It is certainly delusion.

A delusion is a belief held with strong conviction despite superior evidence to the contrary.[1] As a pathology, it is distinct from a belief based on false or incomplete information, confabulation, dogma, illusion, or other effects of perception.

Although non-specific concepts of madness have been around for several thousand years, the psychiatrist and philosopher Karl Jaspers was the first to define the three main criteria for a belief to be considered delusional in his 1913 book General Psychopathology.[2] These criteria are:

certainty (held with absolute conviction)
incorrigibility (not changeable by compelling counterargument or proof to the contrary)
impossibility or falsity of content (implausible, bizarre or patently untrue)[3]

Furthermore, when a false belief involves a value judgment, it is only considered as a delusion if it is so extreme that it cannot be or ever can be proven true (example: a man claims that he flew into the sun and flew back home. This would be considered a delusion).[4]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delusion

If that doesn't sum of religious belief, I don't know what does.

I didn't realise that this was meant to be taken seriously. The topic was begun after the "Sudanese woman sentenced to stoning death over adultery claims" had already been released. Which surely renders it a non-sequitur.

But few see that as any impediment to an orgy of self-indulgent criticism lasting 239 days, several headaches, a political funeral, civil wars and wilful exploitation of imaginary occurrences.

But who's counting?

You have made it clear in fifty-seven diversionary, obfuscatory posts, starting here and finishing here, that you do not take seriously the bullwhipping, kidnapping, wrongful imprisonment, torture, burning, rape, brutalization, stoning to death, and otherwise murdering of innocent women and girls.

The underlined text is a bit inaccurate.

OCD, snowyflake? I'm not qualified to express an opinion, but you may find this helpful: A psychologist or psychiatrist usually does a thorough assessment before diagnosing OCD. In your consultation you will probably be asked to give a detailed description of your behaviour as well as any family history of anxiety or other disorders such as Tourette’s syndrome. It is advisable to write these down before the consultation.

OCD, OW? Are you the topic police or something? I thought that was what moderators were for. Besides, your input is not topic related either so why don't you just sod off down to the sand pit and play there awhile and come back when you have something that is relevant to the thread?

YOu have had ample opportunities to bring the thread back on track yet still here we are 10 days off topic and 17 (now 18) messages blah blah blah......

Not even the topic is topic-related. The item complained of was a non-event, despite which the usual ragbag rent-a-mob jumped on the bandwagon, happy to criticise those filthy foreigners with their disgusting habits.

Genuinely concerned people might have abandoned this unpleasant little thread as soon as that was made evident.
