Speak in code

Read the DaVinci Code by Dan Brown?

You'll love this then...

A website has been put up by the "Catholic Communication Campaign, an activity of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops" to not only refute the ideas behind the book but to arm believers with arguments and counterpoints should they ever find themselves debating the issue.

The site is well-made and flashy, so serves its propaganda role well. Whether or not you care about this issue at all, a visit is still interesting. Like this gem for example:
"We need to challenge the evidence used in The Da Vinci Code and not let up. These works aren'’t serious history."

Exactly! It's just a story goddamn it! (oops, name in vain again)

Still, this is intelligent resistance to dangerous ideas as compared to our local church's ban on the book.

Repent heathens! Bolts of lightening! Cursed be thine blasphemy!

hi Ramzi, nice blog you've got here.
I find it kind of pointless debating religious issues especially historical ones, since people don't really have concrete evidence to base their arguements on no matter what party they're into.. nevertheless, it's great exercise for strengthening your debating skills and exercising temper management! (and learning new stuff from time to time)

Prophet Mohammed, peace be upon Her, was a woman


There is a growing amount of evidence that The Prophet Mohammed, peace be upon Her, was a woman. I recall talking to my young niece, a strong believer in the Prophet, peace be upon Her. My niece became very excited and exclaimed, “You mean that the Prophet, peace be upon Her, is a chick?” Yes I replied. I also said that the Prophet, peace be upon Her, would probably prefer being called a woman, not a chick.

I agree, it is pointless to argue one viewpoint over the other. It's only through freeing spiritual thought from religious/historical details that we can truly reach a universal sentiment.

I doubt the plausibility of prophecy, not the sex of prophets.
