Really? Because as a Muslim I've never met anyone like that as far as I'm aware and I have quite a bit of contact with my fellow Muslims. You can't make blanket statements like that about 1.2 billion people, or about a majority of those people, or about a large portion of those people. Also, I do believe you pulled that "statistic" out of your ass.

These guys usually hold wrong opinions but they glaze over the studies well enough.
Statistic dated from 09 - 2011. Pew research is the company where I'm getting this from. I just went to their site, and I can't find a more recent poll.

There's also a bunch of other polls in European countries, and while the majority there don't support these things, it's not a negligible portion. Usual range is 15-35%.
#149 - kingoflint (10/28/2014) [-]
Well again, as a member of the Muslim community those numbers seem really high to me, and I'd be interested to see the margin of error on these numbers. No matter what when you interview a few thousand to get the opinion of millions, there's a lot of room for inaccuracy. Regardless here is the bottom line: The religion of Islam does not command wanton violence against innocents, despite how some choose to interpret it. Now you'd be right in saying that how people interpret it is what matters. While I still think that these numbers are a little high, there is no denying that there is an epidemic of extremism in Muslim communities that must be addressed. That however, is not reason to justify statements like "Muslims are all terrorists" or treating Muslims as the enemy by default. Hating all Muslims because of the actions of a few terrorists and however many support them is simply not right. If you want to denounce extreme and political Islam; I will be right there with you.

“But if the enemies incline towards peace, do you also incline towards peace. And trust in God! For He is the one who hears and knows all things.” (8:61) and “Fight in the way of God against those who fight against you, but begin not hostilities. Lo! God loveth not aggressors.” both condemn aggressive warfare
“And do not let the hatred of a people prevent you from being just. Be just; that is nearer to righteousness.”[5:8] This deems that you treat your prisoners well
Anyways the list goes on.
Sharia is bullshit. Some Mullahs sat down and made it up. It has some basis in the Qu'ran but nowhere does it say anything about Sharia or about forcing your laws upon others. I agree that Sharia is a terrible thing and I don't think any government should use it. In fact, and in this I acknowledge that I may be a minority, I detest any kind of political Islam. We could solve so many problems in the Muslim world by a simple separation of mosque and state.

Link to 3.151-3. If they're waging war because they were aggro'd, he doesn't do a very good job of saying that. Every line is "because they joined companions with Allah" or something. They do it in the name of god, not defense.

8:61 you got me. Someone go tell ISIS and Hamas.
5:8 no definition of what "just" behavior is. There are no prisoners in this passage.
And to be fair, I know Sharia has no explicit definition in the book, but most people still want it out in the middle east. That's why it's relevent.
Typo. I meant 4.104.
#147 - kingoflint (10/28/2014) [-]
Ok, yeah 3.151-3 is indeed in reference to the battle of Uhud, so the Muslims were admonished for running after the enemy not for trying to spare them.
As far as the definition of just behavior the Qu'ran talks a ton about it in various places, but the same basic principles found in most religions: kindness, compassion, etc.
As far as terrorist organizations go, it's their leaders that tell people that the Qu'ran says to do this or that and if they can find any out of context quote to support them the people will follow. Fighting terrorists physically is a good short run strategy, but if we want to eradicate Islamic extremism in the long run, education is probably our best weapon.
#142 - kingoflint (10/28/2014) [-]
The majority of these quotes are about fighting the tribes of Arabia who persecuted Muslims and who made war upon them. They didn't just decide to raid random caravans and kill random people.
I'm having trouble finding the quotes you reference, but I fear I'm just not looking at it correctly. I assume the first quote you reference is the one that starts "When ye climbed (the hill) and paid no heed to anyone, while the messenger, in your rear, was calling you (to fight)." If that is indeed the one you are referencing, you've misinterpreted it entirely. The verse is in reference to the Battle of Uhud, where when the Muslims had forced the Meccans to retreat, the archers violated the prophet's orders and pursued them in order to ransack their camp, allowing the Meccans to mount a devastating counter-attack. That is why they were being admonished.
I don't have time right now to respond to each one in detail, so I'll respond to them more generally. quotes 1-5 that you reference are indeed advocating warfare, I don't deny that, but they are talking specifically about their conflict with the Quraysh of Mecca. These people waged war against the Muslims, drove them from their homes, tortured and killed their families, and stole their belongings just because of their religion. This clearly falls under the very limited provisions given for killing which is in your own defense and when you are being prevented from practicing your religion. They still would not kill innocents or the unarmed.
The one you cite as 4.114 should be surah An-Nisa 114 right? That says nothing about killing retreating foes so I can't say anything about that one yet.
I can list several quotes from the Qu'ran that say killing is bad and not just for Jews.
“And that ye slay not the life which Allah hath made sacred, save in the course of justice.” 6.151 This allows for capital punishment for certain offences but strictly prohibits murder.
I'm running out of room so I'll post another comment

I should also note that the majority of Muslims the world over want Shari'a law as national law. Regardless of what you interpret the Quran as saying, the majority of Muslims want non-believers/moderates to die/ be persecuted.

Please refer to comment #35
In addition, there is no single "Muslim culture". The religion of Islam just as any other religion plays a large role in culture, but it is not it's own culture. Yes some cultures are oppressive. Yes some of them feature large Muslim populations. This does not mean that that is automatically "Muslim Culture".

Now, some of your notions about Islam are baffling to me. Yes, we are permitted to lie about our faith in order to protect our lives. When you are being prosecuted you can say that you've renounced Islam to save your life, but that's kind of a desperate last resort act. As for lying about our beliefs for the purposes of conversion, I'm not sure where you got that from. I'd wager that if it was some Mullah or some weird hadith that they just made that up because they felt like it. This underlines the major problem in many Islamic societies. People blindly follow what they are told without thinking for themselves or questioning anything. That is how Terrorists gain support; take an out of context quote from the Qu'ran and say it means kill everybody and they'll take your word for it. It's a lack of education and a lack of independent thinking.

Now in relation to violence, I'd wager that you've read some excerpts from the Qu'ran that involve violence, but not the whole thing. For each time the Qu'ran talks about violence one of two conditions apply: it was either in reference to a specific group of people and a specific instance, or it is clarified by verses limit the violence. The only acceptable conditions for violence are outlined in comment 35.

As Islamic morals being directly opposed to "civilized society", I'm unsure what you're referring to. I assume you're referring to the treatment of women for example, but I'd say that my religion tells me that women are equal to men. Places like Saudi Arabia? Yeah they're fucked up. They twist Islam to suit it to their needs same as the terrorists, but in my view, they're totally wrong.

Taken in context it commands killing.
3.151. Muhammad's forces turned from their enemies and showed mercy, and Muhammad responds by saying "don't worry, Allah will forgive you for running, as long as you go back and kill them"
3.167. Muhammad criticizes those who were afraid to fight again. Says they were closer to unbelief than to faith.
9:38. Allah hates those that refuse to fight for him.
2.216. Muhammad says to fight in the same way your mom says to eat your veggies. Muhammad was trying to persuade his followers to raid caravans at this time. They failed 7 times before catching one, and they murdered the driver and stole the loot. This was after they were banished from Mecca, but other Muslims were living in Mecca. Only Muhammad and his gang were banished, and his is the version most Muslims follow today.
2.191. Muhammad advocates for offensive warfare.
4.114. Kill retreating foes.
4.76. Rejecting faith makes you evil.
5.12. Says killing is bad, but when read in context, it only applies to Jews killing Muslims. "We have decreed upon the Children of Israel".
Shari'a Law commands non-believers be killed, as denying any part of the Quran is punishable by death. This includes "moderate Muslims".

Don't tell me they are historically context important either, because then that applies to any peaceful readings as well, and the whole book is null. Besides, if he wanted a specific group of people, he should have said "the pagan army", or "the residents of Mecca" or something.
3/5 of your pillars are about cosmic dick stroking, and one is pointless. Worship me 5 times a day, travel to my holy city, take no other gods other than me, and purify yourself by not eating.
Lets disregard the fact that Muhammad's followers frequently raped the women they found after plundering a country. They would also steal civilian property. Women are constantly oppressed in Islam, as Muhammad had 11 wives at one time, including a 9 year old who he "preferred".

I'm not sure about your "out of context quote" part. Religious texts are fucked up, I mean in context or out of it, plenty of quotes can be interpreted as condoning violence hell, some can only be interpreted that way , but in the end, like you said, you just have to think for yourself and interpret it in a way that doesn't fuck society over. For example, some of the best people I know are Christians, this is because they don't fuss over the details like where the Bible says how hard you should beat your slaves.
tl;dr, fuck anyone who blindly follows everything a religious text says, also, I spent way too long typing that, so fuck you for not reading it.

Pedophilia has a range of definitions, as found in psychiatry, psychology, the vernacular, and law enforcement. The International Classification of Diseases (ICD) defines it as a "disorder of adult personality and behaviour" in which there is a sexual preference for children of prepubertal or early pubertal age.[5] It is termed pedophilic disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), and the manual defines it as a paraphilia in which adults or adolescents 16 years of age or older have intense and recurrent sexual urges towards and fantasies about prepubescent children that they have either acted on or which cause them distress or interpersonal difficulty.[1]

Are you retarded? Sure maybe 30 people died INITIALLY during Fukushima, but you are completely ignoring the fact that the radioactive release from Fukushima is several times WORSE than Chernobyl ever was, and that release of nuclear material CONTINUES TO THIS DAY. The impact over time will be TREMENDOUS and the effects are already being seen in the west coast area of the US.

The fact that it took 2 natural disasters to bring down a 50 year old power plant still tells me how safe it is.

Except it's NOT safe. The material is still leaking 4 years later. The full consequences of this major leak is still yet to be seen to its fullest. The technological means to contain this kind of disaster doesn't even exist yet.

I'm gonna need an article on that, because everything I can find says they contained it.

I feel like I should say something about the environmental effects of Chernobyl. Yes the area had to be abandoned, but after only a few years, the flora and fauna started thriving like never before. Radiation was too bad in some areas for animals to survive, but by no means was the region a barren wasteland.

Thorium definitely has the most potential as nuclear fuel. The only issue is that its terribly corrosive and we don't have a way to stop it from eating up all the metal inside the reactors. Once that gets figured out, There will no doubt be more expansion. I think China is looking into Thorium for there Nuclear energy needs
