If that advancement has to be continued from generation to generation than what mode do you apply? As you know advancement in the human society demands continued efforts.
Your follow up questions rarely ever make any sense to me Javed.
OK fine Link, then what would be a sensible approach to that?
Link you are so rapped up in your thought you cannot see the thought of another. That is just great if you want to stay in your pigeon hole. Spread your wings and try to learn from others.
I don't actually get what you're trying to ask me Javed is what I meant.
And Eric, are you going to elaborate or just assume BS and call it a day? If you're gonna cop an attitude with me please have a damn good reason other than your imagination.
God bless you Link
Link... You said from an assumption of knowing nothing we became more advanced. So how come that advancement continued from one generation to another generation, as we know without continuation advancement can't sustain.
A moment of honesty is too much to ask for huh eric...
Javed I said we should start with the assumption we know nothing (in terms of God) and try to learn from there. Im still at a loss as to what ur asking, but knowledge is passed thru education
I think Link knowing everything and killing don't match, what I believe is if you have knowledge the very first thing that it teaches is what humanity is all about. Historical hiccups can't be an excuse, there are glittering instances too.
There are people throughout history, as well as in modern times, who assume they have some kind of divine truth and will kill those that try to refute it.
Acquiring Knowledge doesn't exactly mean people will learn from it properly either.
That truth need to be severely denounced that allows its followers to resort to killing. What I believe is Truth enlightens the hearts that in turn become epitome of humanity. The purpose of acquisition of knowledge has to be the same.
This is good. I wondered about javed's follow-up, too. And what is Eric's problem? Clearing the spiritual knowledge slate and starting over from scratch while we are no longer controlled peasants who can't read could lead to less hate - unacceptible.
Tamara I am absolutely unaware of that version of Islam. As per the authentic sources, there is a strict NO to all those inhuman activities rather the one who indulges will no longer remain a Muslim.
The problem is that Sunni and Shia regularly kill each other declaring the other infidels, as well as both groups killing Sufi and Almadiyya Muslims - including the British Muslim who wished everyone a happy Easter and was killed for doing so
Tamara. I think those incidences need to be looked with careful consideration, it is not about feuds of two groups, there are more political and social constraints that are a kind of hindrance to know the truth behind.
