[CENTER][B][FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]One of the things that the western -so called- civilization does not know anything about is the truth about religion. [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][/B]
[B][FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]This is because they had a bad experience with Christianity and before that they considered religious equal to mystical,[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][/B]
[B][FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]it was nothing but myths and superstitions, or -any better- philosophies and man-made system of values.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][/B][/CENTER]
[CENTER][B][FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue][IMG]http://english.manhag.net/images/truefalse-425.jpg[/IMG][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][/B][/CENTER]
[CENTER][FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]Throughout the Greek and the Romans, religion had some kind of human establishment.And they did not really have anything to do[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]with understanding the true concept of a Deity or God, except the stories made up by their priests and poets.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]They were pagans, and their concepts had nothing to do with the [B][I]truth[/I][/B] about issues like: life and death, the beginning and the [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]end of existence, afterlife, the Supreme Being and Ruler of this creation and so on. But they had natural questions that keep bugging[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]every human about these things, and they made up some answers for it which they thought it was reasonable and accordingly true. [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][/CENTER]
[CENTER][FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]And they started teaching it as if it was facts like other facts of life.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][COLOR=darkslateblue][SIZE=3][B]But did they have any proof or evidences about it?[/B] They were all just theories achieved by human intellects, and which[/SIZE][/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]later some are being discussed and gone through to be proven false. The only thing that they try to do is to keep it reasonable [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]as much as they can: the more reasonable it would seem the more accurate it should be and truthful! But real independent [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]evidence to be built upon: not a chance.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]And this would not affect that state that it should be considered and respected, because simply you have hundreds and [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]hundreds of other choices which you can choose from. So no need for the whole human kind to be convinced for me to follow something and to claim that it IS true, it IS reasonable and I DO believe in that.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]This perspective about religion is still among most of the western philosophers and academics; they consider what they call a[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]religious experience something unreasonable and that it is normal for religion to have unreasonable ideas.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]To them Religion has always been symbolic and not real. It is an insightful way of motivating the followers to become more moral[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[COLOR=darkslateblue][SIZE=3][FONT=trebuchet ms]and respectful. So, whomsoever who would be able to achieve that with whatever means its no problem:[/FONT][FONT=trebuchet ms] the Truth is [/FONT][/SIZE][/COLOR]
[COLOR=darkslateblue][SIZE=3][FONT=trebuchet ms]to [/FONT][FONT=trebuchet ms]be reached by many ways! they claim.[/FONT][/SIZE][/COLOR][/CENTER]
[CENTER][FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]They consider the religious experience as emotional experience; it does not have to be reasonable it is just there. And it is [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]enough for the one who believes that it is true to [B][I]feel[/I][/B] its true to know that it IS. It differs from one person to another so its a point[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]of view, nothing universal about it.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]Yet still some people kind of feel offended when someone would try to prove their beliefs wrong or unreasonable accordingly[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]of course accusing them themselves- of being unreasonable and no one likes to be called a blind ignorant follower who [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]is being deceived with his own free choice.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]And I have to say that religion is not like emotions, at least when you claim that there is another existing being who communicates [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]and is asking and commanding and will punish if not followed and saying that this is true. You are simply obligating people to[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]do things that normally- they dont like doing and you say it is ok to be unreasonable about it?[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]Then you would be considered whether you are a liar or youre insane.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][/CENTER]
[CENTER][FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]The other thing that ruined the western interpretation about religion was Christianity, and I mean the one taught by Paul,[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]not the one taught by Jesus (peace be upon him). These teachings of Paul were also an example of unreasonably claims of [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]facts that he did NOT have any kind of evidence except that HE SAID SO.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]Actually, it is very rare to find someone in the west who would understand Religion as Islam teaches it:[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]That it is a system of beliefs motivating the followers to execute the best deeds humans can achieve for the sake of glorifying the [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]Creator on this life, till the day that they would meet Him again to be questioned about them being obedient or not, them[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]accepting the truth or not, and them being honest and sincere about it or not.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]Discussing with every little issue abo[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]ut it according to firm proves, starting from the existence of the Creator and his attributes and his likes and dislikes and his[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[FONT=trebuchet ms][SIZE=3][COLOR=darkslateblue]teachings to His servants and the promises He promised them and the warnings that He advised them.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
[COLOR=darkslateblue][SIZE=3][FONT=trebuchet ms]To come in the end to have a follower, who would say when he is being asked about it: a[/FONT][FONT=trebuchet ms]nd here is my evidence[/FONT][/SIZE][/COLOR][/CENTER]
