I watched it.  I have a few muslim friends and knew of the Haj etc.  I watched it all and sorry to put my Simon Cowell hat on here but I found it rather boring and it didn’t tell me anything I hadn’t already heard.  However, I even sat theough the links to the islamic sites in the final masseges section.  I think you might like to learn how other religions do things, so please take a look at this site, with an open heart:

Please tell me what you honestly think.

Can you give me an example of true fiction?

Harry Potter. En example of an untrue fiction was the existence of Troy until Schliemann proved it to be a reality.

That would be non-fiction.  Fiction by it’s very nature is nothing but a story and has very little bases in truth, if any.  Non-fiction has it’s basis in truth.  Soooo, we are right back to square one- Religion by its vary nature is fiction and so is myth.

Go to your local library and you’ll figure out the difference between fiction and non-fiction.  Fiction is nothing but stories.

I think I understand the difference between fiction and non-fiction. :grin: This is precisely why I am baffled by your answer when you say that non-fiction is an example of true fiction.

Stories are fictions, not an example of non-fiction.  Fiction is not true.  Non-fiction is like self-help books, auto-biographies, etc.  Although I could punch holes in some of those self-help books.  LOL

Fiction is not true.

That is why “true fiction” is an oxymoron.

But this is the true religion

Before I participate in this thread, I have ask, no0or, were you serious about that statement, or were you being ironic?

I think s/he was serious, but I could be wrong. The written word is deceptive.

lesten the holy Quran

http://www.quranexplorer.com/quran/


Al-Ikhlas
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Say: He is Allah, the One! (1) Allah, the eternally Besought of all! (2) He begetteth not nor was begotten. (3) And there is none comparable unto Him. (4)

arabc

سُوۡرَةُ الإخلاص
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

قُلۡ هُوَ ٱللَّهُ أَحَدٌ (١) ٱللَّهُ ٱلصَّمَدُ (٢) لَمۡ يَلِدۡ وَلَمۡ يُولَدۡ (٣) وَلَمۡ يَكُن لَّهُ ۥ ڪُفُوًا أَحَدُۢ (٤)

Can you give me an example of true religion? Since if there are untrue religions there has to logically be true ones…

Sure. The Chalcolithc faith in the Great Mother Goddess. Other religions preach peace. A “true religion” would *deliver* peace.
it did. It is real simple to understand when you consider the problem a demagogue would have trying to rile up a mob or an army by claiming that *he* speaks in *HER* name. How many wars and genocides have you seen fought in the name of the Virgin Mary?

Course, Buddha’s characterization of the divine force has not been very useful either, so it has not caused much war. But it has not prevented much either. Most men are just not that psychologically capable of dealing with passion. The Great Mother faith solved that problem. It said sex was sacred.

As Mallory notes, the original Aryan language, aka Proto-Indo-European, or PIE, does not have a word for “marriage”. Men who do not own women do not fight over them, much less go to war for them. The faithful of the Great Mother Goddess lived polyamorously in communal houses, and it was the grandmothers, not the men who owned, as the Mosou still do, all the real estate and infrastructure which they used to ensure that the resources were there to properly raise the kids.

Because men were getting laid, they didnt try to exploit the system to get the luxury goods to attract and own harems. Because they didnt try to exploit the system, there was so much egalitarianism that there was no motivation for revolution.

What else does a “true religion” need to deliver besides peace?
