Islamic Indications of the end of the world
    #3939698 - 03/19/05 01:38 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

As you may or may not know, I was raised Islamic, I still remember the beleifs though I do not practice them as I should. I do however beleive in God, or Allah.

Last night I remembered teachings of the Amman from 8 or so years back.

According to Islamic beleifs (well in this case, according to his knowledge of Islamic beleifs), The World Will End:

1. On a friday
2. In a time of turmoil where there is a lot of killing and rape going on.
3. When Palestine builds a wall around itself (as Israel is doing right now)
4. All hell will break loose between the 3 major religioins.
5. It will rain very hard the night before the end.

Generalizations...

People will read deep knowing that those are the tenants established by that religion, as well as reading various other religious doomsday predictions. Their is also the Christian, Mayan, et etal doomsday predictions all will be read deeply for their relevance and their predictions.

All of which are far over generalized to the extent that it becomes foolish to even suggest their authenticity. If a book can know so much, and suggest so much... why are all the believers left with cues and left in the dark with no specification beyond silly little euphemisms that can mean anything if one abstracts symbolism to the degree they usually do. Hence the varying interpretations established due to the nature of said generalizations.

I put something in my sig when I first joined denoting that aspect.

Edit:
I give the most relevance to the Mayan doomsday prediction due to the fact of their proclaimed astronomy and the accuracy of their calenders. Not the end of the world persay, but some form of an Astrological event that will affect their calendar, hence the end date because a new calendar will be formed on the basis of said undetermined event.

when you turn on the news, things feel pretty grim,
but they are not nearly as bad as many think..

In reality, how many people on this world do you think have raped another person? A very small number compared to 7 billion of humans.
How many have killed? Allso a small number.

Evil seems so strong and dominant because of the media. Violence sells in movies, news, newspapers. Nobody is interested in hearing how you planted flowers today in your backyard.

But guess how many flowers are planted daily compared to how many have been raped?

so? if everyother person were being raped then it wouldn't be such a big deal. It's precisely because of so many flowers being planted that no one cares.

I take more inspiration from South Park then I do an ancient book... I know who created South Park... and their intention is clear: They want money.

No fucking around with that, humor, and a dose of moral implications in every story... Also... I can keep track of that story, I'm assured that Kenny, will indeed die every episode.

Or is it that flowers don't affect people at large... yet somehow... stick with me on this... rape does.

More flowers > Overpopulation > Famine

Too many people does affect the world at large, it's time to look for a new planet while we can.

So you suggest to me that you're more then willing to adapt to a world where rape is more common then flower planting?

Hope you carry around vasoline with you.

no, I'm just saying that quantity often determines quality, at least in terms of impersonal existence.

I mean, there are places in the world where they abandon babies who show the SLIGHTEST trouble, just because the child death rate is soo high, and they don't think twice about it
