Does Islam condemn the materialism of the West?
Are they correct? Do you think the West is not materialistic?
How does that infer that Islam is superior?
Does it perhaps partially explain their enmity towards us.
Do all Muslims live in Islamabad in poverty?
You pissed me off, and probably any non liberal that read your callous statement. And you don't even have the strength of character to apologize. You are a very good writer, but even the finest gourmet food will result in gout if there is too much indulgence in it.
You are simply amusing yourself here, congradulating yourself on every brilliant post. I fully admit to the same behavior; but at least it's interspersed with meaningful activities in the physical universe.
So please do continue your college level posts for 5th graders to read; while the muslims worldwide plot and scheme to kill or subjugate all non-muslims and establish a worldwide Caliphate.
You have proven yourself intelligent, wisdom is another matter. Allahu Akbar traitor.
At least I did not get the dreaded red smiley of rage this time.
I am still at a loss as to how i pissed you off. What did I say that was untrue?
I thought forums were for the exchange of ideas. And yes I would like to share with others what I think is sometimes a little different view of things from a different perspective. If you hear a funny joke you want to share it because it gives pleasure to both. If you learn something you consider of value, sharing gives the same pleasure. Calling it amusement debases it.
I was out on two house calls today to your favorite people, the dirty rich. I think they thought the calls were meaningful since they paid me.
I do have a higher regard for the ability and comprehension level of forum members than you seem to do. Otherwise why bother?
I don't know if my posts are college level since I have never attended college, maybe high school was better in the 1940s, I know it was a lot better around 1900 and before, which all the books I have read by dead guys seem to point that way. I just may have picked up a more florid style from them. I wish I had your wit though.
I don't regard a Muslim conspiracy to take over the world as our most pressing concern, though I don't doubt some Muslims would like to do that. They can't figure out how to take over a state the size of NJ that is right on their border. The world is a little harder.
