the laws of sharia are barbaric (ex: a woman who is raped is to be held responsible for her own rape)
Psst, Emily: who said this?
"If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her;
Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city..."
(hint: it was your holy book!)
Yes, the laws are barbaric, but Muslims don't have a monopoly on barbarism.

Emily, your first statement is an outright lie.
There is no proof whatsoever that there is even a god, which makes the "word of god" statement an outright lie.
As to the Kuran, it is claimed to be written by only one "man", not men.
A raped woman is only held responsible in certain circumstances, much like christianity.
You have broken the "Thou shalt not bear false witness" commandment.
You are hellbound unless you repent!
(How's it feel to be out-holier-than-thou'ed?)
11/26/2007 5:08:16 PM
Erm... have you read the Bible lately, Emily?

Pot meet kettle. Now play nice you two.
11/26/2007 6:04:34 PM
You know something, Emily Ruth, I bet that I could pull blind passages to do with morality out of the Quran and the Bible's Old Testament and you could not identify which one it came from.
11/26/2007 6:39:22 PM
The Koran was written by men and thats why it's flawed. Everyone knows that the bible was written by goblins and therefore it is proof of God's word. That word being "imaginary".
11/26/2007 6:43:57 PM
The Bible is proven to be God's word.
No it hasn't. God hasn't even been proven to exist, despite 2,500 years of trying. God is believed by some people to exist as a matter of faith. And some people, a much smaller number, accept the Bible on faith as God's word.
11/26/2007 6:48:55 PM
Emily and Tedius could have quite a good argument.
11/26/2007 6:54:26 PM
Emily Ruth, are you deliberately trying to be as stupid as possible?
Are you trying to attract a Domestic Master or something?
11/26/2007 7:20:11 PM
Proven? Damn, word never gets out here to the boondocks.
11/26/2007 7:37:02 PM
You are all based on the Old Testament, and if that one hasn't been proven yet, I don't see how any of you could claim authenticity.
11/26/2007 8:21:24 PM
And saying, "Because it says so" does not count.
11/26/2007 9:45:55 PM
The Bible is proven to be God's word. The Koran is written by men
Oh. My. God. Please tell me you're not so stupid as to not see the problem with a statement like this. Please.
Oh, and great picking of an example. Seriously, you could have randomly picked a verse from Leviticus and found a better example to demonstrate your (spectacularly dubious) point.
Outlook for Emily: denseness increasing, with a 100% chance of fail by tomorrow evening.

The koran is proven to be god's word. The bible is written by men and the laws of christianity are barbaric(ex: women can't have an abortion to save their life)
11/27/2007 7:12:56 AM
I wonder if you really know the meaning of the word "proven", because its mere existence has the same validity as the Koran you critisise so much. And incidentally, the Koran never makes the woman responsible for her own rape, not like the OT law, which condemned the raped woman either to die or to marry her rapist.
11/27/2007 7:40:34 AM
You are simply, plain stupid!
Ever read the bible? I don't know about the Koran, but I know the bible and I know what it says about rape - it's kinda an unconventional marriage purprosal.

11/27/2007 8:00:58 AM
Have you EVER read the bible, little girl?
because it has some VERY interesting things to say about rape!
It pretty much makes it legal.
11/27/2007 11:35:42 AM
Those barbarians! Have them all culled slowly and slit the bellies so their entrials dangle everywhere so that when the reach the fire of hells their suffering shall know no reprieve.
11/27/2007 11:22:02 PM
in some ways the stupid is beautiful in its stark elegance
11/28/2007 4:30:15 AM
One out of two isn't so bad.
Oh wait, yes it is.
Damn, and you were so close, too.

Allegory for Jesus
"The Bible is proven to be God's word."
"See, it says so right in the Bible!"
