The Islamic State continued its campaign against civilization this week with the demolishment of a 1,500 year old monastery. ISIS views no religion but Islam as worthy of worship and kills non-believers as acts of true faith. ISIS has also abducted dozens of Christians and is known to sell girls as sex slaves — again claiming such rapes as acts of Islamic morality in its twisted reading of the Koran.
The bulldozing of the Saint Elian Monastery follows the execution of one of the world’s leader archeologists in Syria.
The monastery stood since the 5th Century, but was brought down by Islamic fanatics in bulldozers.
Christian priest Jacques Mourad, who lived at the monastery, is missing after being kidnapped. Mourad was renowned for sheltering both Muslim and Christian Syrians in Homs province.

These vile savages are heathens…vermin…hell-fire awaits for these denizens of darkness…the dark-one will not be providing vestal virginsto them, nor will they be provided grapes figs and nookie…uh-uh…they will be spit-roasted for all eternity…suffering pains and torment 1,000 times greater than those meted out to a full blown aids victim…for all eternity they will fry in hades…as the “evil-one mocks them, as he quotes the quran…howling with demonic delight at thier horrific pain…the place where the worm dieth not…
You don’t need sacred texts to tell you what is right and what is wrong. Try thinking for yourself. Don’t revert to something that was written a long time ago. There is a shoulder to rest upon but there is the danger of the ultimate……
Speak to your web developer to make a chang in your banner. RES IPSA LOQUITOR means “the thing speaks for itself” not “the thing itself speaks”. There’s a big difference!

Join the military. They’ll call you a hero when you kill innocents and destroy property.
“the Muslins did a great job of saving a lot of literature for us…” So did the Catholic Church but I am not interested in giving either religion a pass on their bad behavior. Theocrats Are dangerous and the current crop of Islamists are dangerous and homicidal. Included in that group are ISIS, Al Queda and Saudi Arabia to name just a few.
And one more interesting article.
Neo – there is a great short story The Microcosmic God. If you can track it down it is a great read.
Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one. ~ Albert Einstein
Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away. ~Philip K. Dick
There is an objective reality out there, but we view it through the spectacles of our beliefs, attitudes, and values. ~David G. Myers, Social Psychology
There are no facts, only interpretations. ~Friedrich Nietzsche
Neo – you might want to rethink religion. For some it is a great help.”
I can’t argue against your reasoning, however, I have considered this for decades.
The world is an illusion.
An illusion that presents itself as real becomes a lie.
This world is filled with lies, thus it’s very existence is a lie.
To better one’s self in the world of illusion is a shallow endeavor at best.
Our spirits are from the “pleroma”, a Nag Hammadi word that I like.
This plemora is the epitome of everything, the ALL of every potential.
Now, drill down from there a thousand times and you find this world, a world that has enslaved us through those lies.
Neo – if the world is an illusion, try stepping off.
