He was a conqueror of Arabia and his first Caliphate was the conqueror of other places. This a religion based entirely upon a barbarian and his clan's will to power.
It's why I see Islam as Christianity with addition of what you call ravings of a lunatic Mohammed (murder, beheadings, etc...) they just added chapter 3. Muslims see it as Christianity plus toughness, they don't actually see what they do as murder.
Rome never once challenged the account of what happened to Jesus, but they did persecute his followers. Explain that?
You don't have to deny anything about the religion just by proving or saying that never happened. That would have been the end of it.
In effect, one might even say that Christianity was predicted by Zoroastrian writings, long before Rome was able to extract territories in the near east.
According to Rin the last 20 years of the Internet never happened because Facebook, Twitter, and Google has erased it.

refer you to Lee Strobel’s book “The Case for Christ.”
Quigley saysNuttBoxer saysSo atrocities, wars, etc are less evil the more time passes?Any reasonable person would agree that events of 1000 years ago shouldn’t be an excuse for current day hostilities along the extremely distant progeny of those involved or their cultural equivalents.It goes beyond the whole 1000 year strawman set up of a person like NuttBoxer. It's the fact that today, church or church-like leaders & subleaders of any denomination, will not advocate bombings as a way to instill Christian will and philosophy onto the general public without themselves, either being kicked out by their parishioners or arrested by local law enforcement. I'm sure now, NuttBoxer will bring up the Catholic Croatians vs Eastern Orthodox Serbians as another strawman so I'll bring this up ... neither...the Pope (a/o his underlings) nor the Patriarch of the Eastern Church (a/o his underlings) will advocate for the Bosnian genocide.Pope Urban II of the Crusades has been gone for a millennium. His legacy does not live on since he's not really advocating the teachings of Christ but his own empire building initiative of the middle ages.And I'm using my former hometown of Cambridge MA, where yes, there's an Islamic center where teachers/clerics advocate violence TODAY, as per the Koran/Mohammed's teachings, to justify their cause but in contrast, within the same square mile, none of the other religious gathering buildings do the same. I've given the opportunity for some of the other non-Muslim sub-nationalities [ 90 - Islamic countries ] to show that they're the equivalent of Islam when they're not and the fact remains that only one religion within the most multi-ethnic and religious area, circa Boston, advocates violence.If the Tsarnaev brothers were Orthodox or Jews from the former USSR, chances are that today, Dzhokhar would be a successful physical therapist, living the American Dream in the greater Boston area, instead of on death row. It's Islam and in particular, Islamic teachings from 204 Prospect St Cambridge MA which has made him what he is.

I make double her salary. If I cared to work nights, I’d make triple. I also have better health insurance (she uses it instead of hers) and a better pension.
Rin saysAnd pleaz, for those in STEM who claim that their "advanced statistical thermodynamics" is useful, just shut the fuck up.Sorry Rin, statistical thermodynamics is related to information theory, which is used in many places and could well be the future in artificial intelligence. People learn more than they need for good reasons: it could be useful and they at least need to know what's there. Plus it gives them cognitive paths that can apply to other things. Lots of people in this country despise education. Many because it makes them feel inadequate.

No one will hire Mark with online degree, since mark will just pay his friends to take online tests for him. Or he will use one of tens of websites, such as this one, https://paymetodoyourhomework.com/take-my-online-class/.

They became the Mughals

In any case, the last two and half years have been fucking GLORIOUS for the economy, foreign policy, and freedom from PC oppression. Trump deserves massive credit for all that. Truly among the best US presidents ever, and all the liberal tears of rage and impotence have been sweet sweet nectar for everyone who dared to question the globalist agenda.
If that ain't the gayest comment since maddow touted her aftershave...
You’re not the only one who likes to fuck. What’s the point Rin?
The main goal is to get Rin to incorporate exercise as part of his daily routine. Then the diet comes next when he starts to see some results.
Sounds fishy, here is another perspective https://blogs.spectator.co.uk/2016/09/islamic-states-jizya-tax-christians-pure-propaganda/. Also consider that basically every Muslim nation wants to wipe Israel from the face of the world and I call BS on this jizya myth. It is busted.
Tenpoundbass saysHave you ever met a middle class person driving a Tesla? Every day. In fucking droves.
Have you ever met a middle class person driving a Tesla?
You need to get out more then. In SFBA the Model3 is the fucking equivalent of beige Corolla of 20 years ago.
So, what's the equivalent of beige Corolla from 20 years ago in Assachussets? Same beige Corolla but with floors rusted through?
Musk is one of the few Silicon Valley types who is not a total SJW moron and actually building a product people want.
socal2 saysAccelerationThere is zero need to accelerate any faster at all than what has been possible the last decades, unless you want to connect it some ultra-smart and bug-proof AI that can use lightning fast acceleration in swerve maneuvers for accident prevention. Which isn't happening. It's probably causing more accidents as people try to impress by showing off. So acceleration is merely used for status-symbol signaling.
A 20-year-old New Jersey man who allegedly sent money abroad to Hamas militants in an effort to support the terror group also spoke of bombing Trump Tower and attacking the Israeli Consulate in New York, authorities say.The suspect, identified as Jonathan Xie, of Basking Ridge, was arrested Wednesday morning on charges of attempting to provide material support to a designated terror group, making false statements and transmitting a threat of interstate commerce. Though he spoke of the attacks, authorities say there was no specific plot. Xie is expected in federal court in Newark later Wednesday.https://www.nbcnewyork.com/investigations/New-Jersey-Terror-Trump-Tower-Bombing-510273571.html
The Tesla is a Status Symbol.
Like the Rented Babe Dining Companion. To Be Seen With.
Like some performance you shared about an encounter.
You're being more honest about your likes. Welcome to Silicon Valley.
How exactly fucking prostitutes fits into "olde world New England values"?
That stuff is illegal in New England exactly because of these values.
divorce court and losing half of one's portfolio.
Yep, you can thank the "olde world New England values" for it. Because for many years the people with these values were ruling the US of A.
I figure that if I'm driving an electric car in the winter, I'm just wearing my coat in the car and not using the heat, and dealing with it. My commute is not that long.
I think of Tom Leykis down in LA who had specific rules for dealing with females; i.e. avoid entanglements and expensive outings.
