Oh, was unaware of that. I just take a lactaid pill with my shakes to counter that.

your a complete idiot if you think just because a company owns a cool product its automatically successful. It is indeed a fact that apple is the most valuable company, sees insane growth rates, sells amazing products that competition cant produce. everything you said was honestly just retarded. you edited your post to try and disprove my point to you that i was disproving you... while infact you did not disprove my point and just made an uneducated reply thinking you disproved me. your slandering apple acting like it isnt a powerhouse, in march they had 100 billion in the bank, and profited 16 billion last quarter. PROFITED 16 BILLION.

apple can literally buy countries and rename it to apple...

as for apple not being the most profitable company...

Luckily for us we have Gordon Gekko here gracing us with his presence. Everyone take notes from the kid who isn't old enough to have a brokerage account.

Here's a basic lesson from Benjamin Graham, if everyone is getting on the "next big thing", you're too late.

I think I've become lactose intolerant as well. Bought some lactaid pills, take 1 with every shake and dairy product. Farts and explosive ****s significantly reduced

And yes, Reddit went downhill. Its cool to see groups coming together for common causes when they do do it though. Sometimes they band together and donate a ****load of money to charities/people in need

I agree. Some (but not all) atheist's jimmies seem super rustled over the fact that people believe in a god. Then the atheists get pissed when religions oppose gay marriage and they say "if it doesn't affect you it shouldn't matter" but its the same damn thing with religion, in general.
If people want to believe in a god let them, its their life, not yours. Some exceptions include religious terrorism which affect people.

I see it on facebook a lot among the other stupid **** that makes me mad.

And not unlike someone who believes that white people are superior, you are associated with the persons who commit atrocities against one enough based on that belief, even if you aren't committing the actions.

I tend to think I don't have anything at all figured out, seeing as my life is pretty much like a Geo Metro stuck in a foot of mud with a small Asian woman at the wheel.

I'm not diving into this ****fest, but which translation of the quran do you prefer? I assume, like myself, you haven't read it in Arabic.

I have the one by Tarik Khalidi on my shelf, but I only did a relatively short(probably only spent an hour or two on it) search of the internet to look at opinions of which to get. I'm looking to compare versions, which one do you have, and do you like it? Is it word-for-word, phrase-for-phrase or does it employ a different translation paradigm(like "the good news" version of the bible, for example).

Looking forward to your response. Always interested to know what you think.

No, as I don't understand Arabic, I'm relegated to translations. And the verses I've found specifically advocating violence against non-believers tend to run pretty closely in both the Shakir, Pickthal, and Yusufali translations.

As a little background on this my stance on Islam (and really every religion) comes from preaching and advocating tolerance until I was informed to educate myself on the actual content of the texts.

My take now is that, like every religion with roots in Abrahamism, the world would be a better place without it.

I have to be 100% honest here:

I don't understand how you could get any impressions of anything reading selected verses only. The whole damn thing is so convoluted with tons of symbolism and such, that I barely understand it reading it only a chapter at a time.

If you really want to understand it, I highly recommend actually reading it. rather than cherry picking. I'm not even saying what you've read "doesn't mean what it says". I'm saying I have a hard time grasping the message of whole chapters, I can't imagine what you can pull out of a couple of sentences at a time.

it's like picking "No one can follow me who doesn't hate his own mother" out of the bible and saying that's what Jesus taught.

but I assume your mind is made up, and you don't care to read more. Don't blame you. If it wasn't for the Christians publicly decrying extremist groups, I'd feel the same was about it. I always wonder where all these moderate american muslims who speak out against terrorists are.

I do wonder though if the press doesn't cover them BECAUSE it would take away from the meme they are going with.

I dunno, that sounds too "it's a conspiracy, man" to me.

There are varying levels of extremist with varying views that are not inherent to Islam, and indeed the break a main commandment if you will, of the Quran, which is not harming other muslims and also to be violent against hipocracy (which they are doing).

However...

The Quran is a violent book that promotes violence, dishonesty towards non-islam, and other various things. With many loopholes such as Fat'was and the chronological ordering of correctness.

TL;DR: Islam, religion of peace. There are muslims who are peaceful, but Islam is not inherently a peaceful religion.


EDIT: This being said, I am friends (close) with many muslims who are peaceful, denounce extremism and violence in the name of Islam/Allah and who are very accepting and welcoming to non-muslims. They range from Lebanon, Palestine, West Africa and North Africa. All from different backgrounds.

Yeah, organized food drives for those in poverty, donation collections for those in need of medical care and can't pay for it, sending missionaries to violent and poverty stricken areas of the world to build homes and friendships... all terrible, terrible things. There are good things about religious entities, as well as not so good.

Dake- hsilman made a good point. So you are saying that people don't have the capacity to be able to follow and/distinguish certain "guidelines" or even "texts" like you yourself pointed out, and not other, more violent ones? "Not coming @"

Also- getting heated in here
