    But when i do it's usually time for Ramada.
    Happy Ramada to all us non believers.
    Depending on where you are and what you go by it starts in,,, well any time now.
    In case you are new to this its pretty much the Islamic version of the purge l, or at it has been in recent years.

    The Ramadan celebration has started in earnest with the traditional massacre of Christians... maybe later on they will continue celebrating by throwing homosexuals off the tops of buildings or stoning those shameless hussies who dare to show part of their faces.

    I don't always post in the religion forum either, but it usually is to comment on Christians bleating about how badly they are being oppressed in a nation where they enjoy a significant amount of privilege over other faiths, and over people of no religious affiliation. Of course the annual war against Christmas just won't be the same without Bill O'Riley at the Helm of Fox religious propaganda, so that's something I suppose.

    Yes, Ramadan is upon us; which, where I live, has the slight advantage of extended trading hours in some Muslim businesses after dusk: thats if one is into Arabian cuisine.

    Yes... I guess here in SM land, Ramadan's greatest gift to religion is to give the non- Muslim religious tribes a sense of superiority and self importance, that at least they, aren't as bad as the Muslims.

    It just goes to show....

    Unrelated but 54% of Arabs living in the US are Christian and the majority of them are Catholic found it to be a weird but true fact

    I guess, to some extent, aspects of post #3 may be a distraction to devotees of one religion bashing the beliefs of the devotees of another religion (and their religion itself)...far be it for me to interfere with inter sectarian religion bashing....

    I agree that Islam has many pernicious beliefs, customs, traditions and practices....that are harmful to humanity, but it has to be said, that Judaism, and Christianity have many analogues of the same kind of beliefs that are also harmful...just that at present, Christians and Jews are much less aggressive in prosecuting them than they had in past history.

    You misspelled peace, what they mean is "piece", of your mind, of your country, of your laws, etc.

    Sorry Chelloveck, when you speak "of privilege over other faiths" you obviously forgot about the jews, the half brothers of the moslems.

    What is a Ramadan , Some noodles with cheese on them?

    No...No...No... You've got the genealogy wrong. Judaism is the parent religion of Islam, of which Christianity, is the elder half sibling (of Islam)....but as everyone is told (ad nauseam), America is a "Christian Nation", not a Jewish nation, although admittedly, occasionally, a limited acknowledgement of Jews is made, when the term "Judeo-Christian" is sometimes trotted out.

    Ramadan Ramadan - RationalWiki is an approximate analogue of the Christian liturgical observance of Lent Lent - RationalWiki. Most Muslims take their Ramadan fasting more seriously, than some Christians do, of customary Lenten fasting, though, like many more cultural Christians, there are probably more Muslim Ramadan fasting slackers than might be admitted to their more orthodox sharia observant neighbours.

    Edit: @Gator 45/70 I was a bit slow in getting the Ramen / Ramadan pun...mea culpa...I have no excuse ;)

    Dancing with the devil, is a bit like playing 'air guitar'....both are notional, rather than real...however, those with an active imagination can pretend to see that which doesn't actually exist. ;)

    to me this proves you do NOT know much about what you type...

    if you ever bother to read them you would see there is little or even no relationship between Islam and the other 2...

    but guessing you never bothered...

    point... the prophet when first contacted... was at the back of a cave seeking relief from the heat...

    and when first contacted... he thought it was a... demon

    NOPE not so... not even close...

    I suggest you READ more...

    yes claims are made... by the followers of the prophet... but if you look and read you will find such a claim to be... untrue

    the name Allah was... prior to Islam the name of a local MOON God...

    I could go on... by why make such an effort... it's pretty obvious to me that some do NOT want to KNOW...

    they find it goes against their agenda perhaps?

    what ever the case... if someone does not wish to know they will not see or hear...

    Here is a link that will tell you the basics on Ramadan- During Ramadan, Muslims abstain from eating any food, drinking any liquids, smoking cigarettes, and engaging in any sexual activity, from dawn to sunset. That includes taking medication (even if you swallow a pill dry, without drinking any water). 9 questions about Ramadan you were too embarrassed to ask That is pretty harsh. Catholics don't even give up this much during Lent.

    Yes, some believe that the fasting makes Muslims irritable but that could be a biased statement. We joke much about the religion of peace, myself included but I always remind myself that Cat Stevens became a Muslim. I do not believe that this man, who sang these amazing words, one of the most artists ever, is plotting to wipe all non-believers off the earth.

    600 years before Mohamed,
    Jesus said 'Satan is a liar and the father of it ".
    According to Mohamad ,Allah approves of lies ,
    God of heaven severely judges lies .
    There is a great difference between the two.

    PS- before anyone starts bashing about Cat Stevens funding terrorism and being on the no fly list. I know all that. I thought he was a terrorist for a while but I have learned to keep questioning. We need to question why people convert, what was their first motive and go from there.
