Is al-Azhar University Serious?!!!

Standard

Azhar Fail

Author’s-Note:
Egypt, in all it’s incredible idiocy, with the assistance of al-Azhar University, the Oxford/Cambrige of Islamic-Learning within the conventional Muslim-World, pertaining to it’s reputation & academic stature, has decided to grant King Abdullah, of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, an honorary-degree from the university.

Ok, so let me get this straight:

Egypt decided to get the bright idea to grant King Abdullah, of the Kingdumb of Saudi Arabia which is really Saudi America, via al-Azhar University, an honorary-degree, but, didn’t think even once about granting the People of ‪‎Gaza some honorary-humanity, by granting them asylum within the boarders of Egypt, as opposed to maintaining a boarder-wall, which keeps them landlocked, and victimized by the Israeli-Military, which is really AmerIsrael while Egypt, headed by Sisi the Muslim/Arab nation with the largest military in the Middle-East just sits-back & has Lipton Tea, with the Kermit the Frog face, like, “But, that’s none of my business”…Now, I dare that Egyptian-Woman who was ranting, “Sisi yes, Morsi no!!!”, to complain about what’s happening in Palestine/Israel.

Karl Ersnt von Baer: He indirectly proved that the Qur’an is the true word of Allah

Standard

If you don’t know who this man is, then, as a Muslim, you owe it to yourself, to learn about him: he is Karl Ernst von Baer. He was a well-renowned German-Embryologist, actually considered one of the Founding-Fathers of Embryology. Anyway, he did something that’s so important for the World, and especially for the Muslims: he, single-handedly, discovered the functionality & purpose of the Ovum/Fallopian-Egg, by dissecting a Female-Dog. Thus, he came to the conclusion, that not only does the Ovum serve the purpose of facilitating fetal-development within Animals, but in Human fetal-development, as well; but, why is this so important? Because, Allah tells us, within the Qur’an, 14-centuries ago (12-13-centuries prior to even the birth of Karl Ernst von Baer himself) that the Human being was created from Ova/Fallopian-Eggs.(Noble Qur’an: Chpt.96, V.1 & 2) And, ironically, this discovery, single-handedly proved that everything in the Qur’an is the absolute truth, because how could/would it be possible for the Qur’an to be right about something like this, which no one on Earth had any prior knowledge of, and then be wrong about anything else?!!!

Words that have been hijacked in our “Modern-Society”:

Standard

The whole reason for this post is to highlight how powerful language is, whether it is used for positive or negative. My intent is to simply mention a few words, with are originally,  inherently, positive/neutral. But, tragically, these words have been hijacked by persons, groups, governments, media, etc., to project specific agendas. What I intend to do is just to simply empower the public, to take back language, and to not allow others to define language for us, to not allow persons or groups to manipulate language for their own motives.

Here are some of the words I’m referring to, which have been hijacked:

Science-

Science is a beautiful tool, used to discover & define the elements of the Universe, within our limited scope. However, Atheists/Anti-Theists have hijacked Science to promote their agenda, to spread Atheism/Anti-Theism, based upon pretences which really have nothing to do with anything Scientific. They claim that those whom are Theists have very limited, to no true knowledge of Science, yet, when it comes to what they call “proving” that a divine-creator doesn’t exist, they look to Science to promote this baseless-claim. They claim that Theists only use “Faith/Belief”, not empirical-evidence, to come to the conclusion that a divine-creator exists. Yet, ironically, when called to task, to also use “empirical-evidence”, to prove the opposite-view, they aren’t able to disprove the existence of a divine-creator. And, without the use of revelation/revealed-texts, both Theist & Atheists/Anti-Theists are at a 50/50 stalemate, when it comes to either proving or disproving the existence of a divine-creator.

Faith-

Directly piggy-backing upon what has been previously mentioned, Atheists/Anti-Theists manipulate the term “Faith” as the following: to have conviction or belief in something that is no provable via empirical-evidence. This manipulative, deceptive, definition of “Faith” is staple among Atheists/Anti-Theists, against those of a Theistic persuasion. However, ironically, when it comes to the opposite-view, which is obviously the disbelief in the existence of any divine-creator/god of the Universe, they actually do the same thing as the spin on the meaning of “Faith” that they’ve conjured up against Theist: they (Atheist/Anti-Theists) have conviction that no divine-creator/god really exist; yet, they, themselves cannot prove the non-existence of a divine-creator/god, through the usage of empirical-evidence. The non-existence of a divine-creator/god is something that they exclusively believe in, they cannot definitely say that they know a divine-creator/god doesn’t exist, it’s their belief, by definition/extension, it’s their “Faith”, if you will.

Terrorist-

The true meaning of this word is someone whom inflicts fear upon someone, through various means. Now, throughout history, including the history of colonization, particularly/especially the colonization of the New-World & founding of the United States, the term terrorist, if you objectively research the amount of carnage inflicted upon the Natives of the Western-Hemisphere, the severe ill-treatment of Africans, brought from Africa, as slave-laborers, the formation of American Organized-Crime, all individuals involved in the fruition of these happenings & events should, by mere definition, be labeled as terrorists, but they’re not. People like Christopher Colombus, the Pizarro bros., Hernando Cortez, Ponce de Leon, etc. are etched in the annals of written (European/American) history as discoverers or explorers, when in fact they were nothing more than murderers, pillagers looters, rapists, and exploiters. Yet, ironically, you’ll never hear their names in the same category as persons such as Osama Bin-Laden.

Gay-

Originally meaning joyful, this term has been stolen by the Homosexual-Community, projecting to the public that the lifestyle they lead gives them bliss, where in fact, they are among the most depressed, substance-abusing, suicide-attempting demographic, arguably, in Human-History.

Fundamentalist-

This word initially comes from the word fundamental, meaning something grounded, sound, pure, stable, etc. So, a fundamentalist is really a person whom functions based upon strong, sound principles. However, unfortunately, in our modern society, fundamentalist has been used, unfairly, as a euphemism for an extremist.

Pedophile-

The etymology of this word is from Latin, meaning to have a positive-affinity for children. Sadly, this word has been attributed to something very ugly & sadistic, known as child-molestation. And, it’s very sad how people have allowed an originally pleasant word like this to be horrendously transformed into meaning something so disgusting.

Vigilante-

Vigilante originally comes from the word vigil, meaning watchful, observant, protective, etc. Unfortunately, this word is now used in our society as someone whom is a lawless individual, whom is vengeance-bent.
