Many people continue to believe in a ‪#‎god‬ because it gives them comfort, not because god actually exists; it’s an emotional response. It allows them to ‪#‎pray‬ to their god and think that they’re actually accomplishing something. It gives them feelings of structure and meaning in their lives, and makes them feel connected. It helps remove the fear of death and nonexistence that most of us experience after death, just exactly what we experience before our birth. Belief in the ‪#‎Christian‬ god helps remove people’s fear of Christian ‪#‎Hell‬ that has been pounded into their minds from childhood. Belief in a god also makes the world more black and white, less confusing, and easier to deal with. Likewise belief in the‪#‎Islamic‬ god helps remove people’s fear of Islamic Hell that has been pounded into their minds from childhood. Belief in a god also makes the world more black and white, less confusing, and easier to deal with.But, is this any actual proof for the existence of a god? Is comfort a good indicator of the truth of external reality? I don’t think that it is, any more than the reality that astrology is not true simply because people find comfort in it. The universe does not owe us comfort and meaning; we create them ourselves through our various religions.
“The fact that a believer believes he is happier than a skeptic/atheists is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man believes is happier than a sober one. The happiness of credulity is a cheap and dangerous quality.”
Religions are like feel-good addictive drug. I think that addicts will do or think almost anything to continue getting their fix. Some people eventually see that freedom from religious addiction is an intellectually and emotionally healthy change, although withdrawal can be painful.

لإسلام السيـــــــاسي

من معــــــا يب تيارات الإسلام السيـــــــاسي ، بكل ألوانه ، أنهم يقبـــــــــــلون في لهفة وشوق على منتاج العلولمة العصـــــــــرية في التكنولوجيا ، وفي الوقت ذاته ، يعلنوها حربا شعـــــــــــواء لاتبقي ولاتذر ، على العولمة الفكرية ، ينسون أو يتناسون ،أن الأمر مرتبط بالتلاقح والتنافس الفكـــــــــــري ، وعلى حد تعـــبير الكاتب الشهير أمير طاهري : ( أن الــــرفض اللفظي المجـــــرد للعــولمة وفي الوقت ذاته قبول جميع ضروراتها وقواعــــدها في الممارسة ليس سوى دليل على الكســـــــل الفكري

Today I had an intense argument with a bunch of workers at the project i am working at. The whole thing started off because I said that a man should not be allowed to have more than one wife at a time. Then they said that it was ok because Allah says so in the quran. So I said I don't care what he says, I can't stand the idea of being married to a woman who has three more husbands, so why should it be different for women? ! A religion that doesn't understand that should be taken with a bit of suspicion! !
The situation escalated very quickly after I said that and I had to take back what I said because I was really afraid for my safety.  Especially where I work because there is no network coverage their.
but I do think that islam has it wrong when it comes to polygamy.
