  1. Majid and Harris have a dialogue about nothing, because nothing will change until it is realized by these monotheists, that resurrection is a delusional dream wish, and paradise does not exist. The greatest scam in the history of humanity! GROG

    • Hello Grog. I agree with the second part for sure. However I see two benefits from the Harris / Majid talks and maybe movie. First it points out where the both sides are positioned and the errors on each side. It also acknowledges that there are extremes on both sides and a reluctance to address those extremes in a useful way. There are nice Muslims as there are nice Christians along with nice people in other religions. There are also hateful monsters in those same faiths. We have to find a way to deal with the hateful monsters honestly with out white washing everything so we don’t look like hateful creeps our selves. I face being called a hater of Christianity one day and a hater of Islam on another. Neither is true. I am disgusted by and push back on the negative harmful actions of the extremes in all religious groups. So I am hoping that dialogues like this one will help us get to a point where we can talk about the harmful things with out being accused of hating a people or their faith. Well it is a hope. Thanks. Hugs

      • There is no room for bargaining when there is this perfect book and a final prophet of Allah. The only way to ensure peace is for the messianic faiths to admit that their end of world scenario is false. And they will never do that! In the meantime Muslims are killing other Muslims. They are terrorizing the world (to let us know that they are still there) in a show of their devotion to Allah. GROG

        • Yes Grog, I also have posted about that. I also posted how here int he US it was a Muslim neighbor who built my ramp into the back yard when all the white Christians around me ignored the fact I was in a wheelchair. I also have had email / comment conversations with a 15 year old Pakistani girl who claims her family and herself have a much more mild form of Islam than even the majority of her countrymen. She is frustrated as am I. I get into long bitter arguments with people who do not seem to want to admit that in the US I as a open married gay man are in more danger from fundamentalist Christians and white power nationalist than I am from any Muslim. That is due to the far greater amount of the Christians and the white nationalist assholes, a;long with the privileges both groups have had compared to the Muslims who mostly follow the laws as they never had privilege in the US. See everything you wrote about Muslims and Allah is happening also with fundamentalist Christians and their attempt to make the US a theocracy under their god ( particular view of the bible ) and the
          doctrines of their church. While Muslims are killing Muslims, Christians prefer to kill LGBTQ people and wage both physical and political war on them.
          Grog, please don’t misunderstand me, I do not claim to have the answer. I am saying I am worried. I am looking at the rights we have fought for so long going a way, I am looking at an increase in violence against people like me. I am worried legal protections we have gained are simply being written out of existence by sections of government turned over to religious bigots. This is a scary time for LGBTQ. I keep comparing this time in the US to mid 1930’s Germany. History is repeating it self. Hugs
