Evidence of God in plain sight Part II of III
2020.07.14 08:25 DavidgogoEvidence of God in plain sight Part II of III
Layer 1 The best way to demonstrate the claim is to actually go through examples. Some of you may not know this but Quran is full of examples of word count and not merely word counting but it ties the count to other related counts and also to the real world around us. In addition, the sequence in which the entire Quran is recorded can be viewed as one single block chain with a difference, the public ledger characteristic is supplemented by a visually coherent natural language text layer that is literally tamper-proof. The issue I am facing is that there are literally hundreds if not thousands of data points. My problem is providing enough of them without overwhelming some of you. Let us start with something we witness every day and night. The word count of the Moon and the Sun is simply remarkable. At first glance, it points to the solar calendar year in terms of days and the lunar months in a year. However, when we look closer it covers the whole spectrum of events connected with the movement of the Sun and the Moon. First up, the singular form of the word 'day' is mentioned a total of 365 times, matching the number of days in a year. The interesting bit here is that the Arabic derivatives of the word day like 'your day', ‘their day' and 'my day' are excluded from the count for obvious reasons. Hence, a mindless count of the word “day” will not reveal the underlying pattern. Similarly, the number of times the word months is repeated matches the traditional count of 12. Although, unlike a week, the movement of the Moon can and is used to track the passing of the months, but the Quran doesn't leave it to chance. The Quran states that in God's eyes the number of months is 12. This is also one of many instances of Self-Reference, where the mention of a word fits the context. In this particular case it also ties into an observed celestial phenomenon. Needless to say, true to the universal nature of the Quran, there is no direct mention of a week, which is normally difficult to track with a celestial event. Although it could arguably be tracked by the Moon, but the markers are not that self-evident. But the term “two months” is repeated two times. Where the word count of the Moon and the Sun is elevated to God mode is in the use of the singular, dual and plural forms within the counts. The number of times the word calendar days, plural form, is used is 30, with a split of 27 singular and 3 duels, corresponding to the sidereal period and synodic period. In above examples we were focused on the singular and plural tense of the respective terms. In this following instance we will be combining the two to highlight the detail hidden in this combination. The one celestial event that is not commonly observed is to do with the sun's movement in what is called the Metonic cycle. Towards this end the total number of times the word 'year' is mentioned in both singular and plural forms is 19. It may appear that the Quran went another way here. But when the occurrence of the two forms taken together is analyzed, it transpires that the 19 years of the Metonic cycle consist of 7 Lunar leap years and 12 solar non leap years for a grand total of 19. For an even more in-depth discussion of the issue, please go here. The team over at http://www.muhaddith.org/QuranMiracles/has done a wonderful job. The style of presentation may not be to everybody’s liking but most of the work is solid. I will borrow a handful of their findings here. For an extensive list please follow their YouTube channel link.
Angels – 88 times and Devils – 88 times
This world – 115 times and Next world – 115 times
Heat – 4 times and Coolness – 4 times
Summer – 1 time and Winter – 1 time
Man – 24 times and Woman – 24 times
Worry – 13 times and Reassurance – 13 times
Close – 10 times and Away – 10 times
Belief – 25 times and Disbelief – 25 times
Benefit – 9 times and Harm – 9 times
East Sunrise – 16 times and West Sunset – 16 times
There are some interesting variations, in the case of man and woman, instead of the word “man” (رجل) being used 24 times, it is used 23 times in its singular form by some researchers. The variation has to do with how words are combined to form higher numbers. Hence the word (رجل) in Quran 7:155 is dropped because it combines to mean seventy men. From a Self-Reference point of view the mention is as important as the meaning it conveys. Hence one can make a case for 23. But to get to the mention of 23 times “woman” (امرأة) is not so straightforward. One can try and make a case for it when used in the context of a wife, but it is not how Quran’s patterns pan out. They are all very precise and consistent. We are not going to delve into the scientific bit as I said but just a quick comment because it is very relevant to the count of 23. I feel one of the reasons some researchers have opted to pursue the number 23 is to see if they can tally it with the 23 chromosomes from the man/father and 23 from the woman/mother. However, there is much clearer indication of this in chapter 112. Where the word (يَلِدْ) is used. This is the only instance in the Quran that it is used to denote procreation. Elsewhere in the Quran other words are used to convey the giving birth sense. Like (مرفوع). When we write out this very short chapter 112 on a single line, we end up with 15 words. The word (يَلِدْ) falls right in the middle. Seven words fall to its left and seven words falls to its right. The total number of letters in the chapter are 47. If we take the middle letter, we end up with 23 letters to its left and 23 letters to its right. One may raise the objection that the count was reached by including two letters from the middle word and that would ordinarily be a valid objection. But since we have deep dived at letters level, it transpires that the middle letter that falls in the middle of the 23 letters on each side of it, is a lam (ل), which is the 23rd letter of the Arabic alphabet. See figure below. Please go here for details. 📷 https://preview.redd.it/w3lvq7by60b51.jpg?width=545&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=4c740e516f230944cf18f6677a875dda88040c2b The above examples by themselves are remarkable. Now imagine building additional layers on top of them without disturbing the first layer’s distributions. Note: Let’s catch up a little bit. The naysayers often bring up the ‘difficulty’ of counting in the Arabic text. In reality, it is not a difficulty, but it is slightly different than English for instance. The solution on the other hand is Universal, just stick to a consistent methodology in each instance of counting. If singulars and/or derivatives are used for one word, the same should be employed for the related/opposite word. Then there are the dedicated and well-funded Islam Haters, read people haters, whose focus is on what is not a miracle and objections to how the counts were made. Ironically while making their case they got the counts wrong. Most of the time the people who raise objections don’t take into account either the nuances of the tense and/or are not familiar with Self-Reference. Please go here to watch some of the objections being discussed To be fair most of the “Debunk” crowd is a bit dated (but constantly recycled) by now and the field has moved on and many of the objections raised have been addressed since. The word count is actually a checksum of sorts. If we were to only count words in isolation, as opposed to matching them up in pairs, there would be no form of check when it comes to testing the integrity of the text. Layer 2 The second layer has to do with Self-Reference. The very notion of Self-Reference is rather new and was articulated less than a century back. So, basically, what it means is that we note and become aware of both the use of a particular word to convey the intended meaning and its actual mention in a given work. We start with the very verse that drew the attention of the researchers to identify the notion of Self-Reference in the Quran. Then (do) not they ponder (on) the Quran? And if it had (been) from other than God, surely, they (would have) found in it much contradiction. Quran 4:82 The apparent notion of non-contradiction expressed in the verse is a powerful declaration in itself. Adding the Self-Reference element is a force multiplier. The twist is that the very word ‘contradiction’ is used just once in the entire Quran. Here is another demonstration of “Self-Reference”. In this example the expression Seven Heavens is used, you guessed it, exactly 7 times. Similarly, it is also interesting to note that the word COLORS’ (alwan) in plural form appears a total of SEVEN TIMES in the Quran (16:13, 16:69, 30:22, 35:27, 35:27, 35:28, 39:21), , matching the visible spectrum. In fact, the various different colors mentioned have their own logic in their order of appearance. The color story is interesting, but we will move on. As usual there was a bit of confusion on the counts when Mohammad Asadi first discovered this phenomenon and wrote an article, but the counts were later adjusted and confirmed. There are a number of other examples to ponder over. Please go here to read his article and the accompanying forum discussion link to address the “confusion”. Let me quickly add that all this counting and order of appearance of words in identifiable patterns buries the assertion by sect centric Muslims and the so-called Islam “experts” that the Quran was not compiled by the Author himself. At this point some may say and do: It can be done, that is, the measured use of specific words. Of course, it can be done up to a certain point, it just depends on the level of complexity. Hence a few more examples in this particular layer will dispel the notion that it is possible. Remember we are at the second and still a relatively less complicated layer. Apart from the fact that 1,400 year back edit modes were not only impractical but evidence of it being employed in the case of the Quran has either been cleaned up to the point of impossibility or the entire over 77,000-word work was edited and proofread in the mind of the Author, before committing it to writing . Trust me, as the complexity builds up it will become easier to set aside this “possibility” notion, even if a remote one at that. The most famous example of Self-Reference is the mention of Jesus and Adam in the Quran. Several researchers had noticed this pattern, but I think Kaheel’s version is more comprehensive. Briefly: Allah Almighty says: Verily, the likeness of Jesus before Allah is the likeness of Adam. Quran 3:59 We notice several relevant elements in the Quran: The first: The word Jesus is repeated in the Quran 25 times, the same as the word Adam.The second: The number of times the word Adam was mentioned from the beginning of the Qur’an up to this crucial verse is 7 times, and the number of times Jesus was mentioned from the beginning of the Qur’an up to this verse is also 7 times. The third: The word Adam is mentioned for the 19th time in the Qur’an in the chapter Mary and also the word Jesus is mentioned for the 19th time in chapter Mary, which is the 19th chapter of the Quran. Hence likeness is balanced in a number of ways. There are several other elements to this pattern and like many other instances, the two ‘major’ patterns based on the number 19 and 7 overlap. For instance, the number of verses between the 7th mention of Adam and 19th mention are 1957 verses. The same is true of Jesus. Interesting when we write out the numbers from 1 to 25 in a single line and then below it, we do the same but in reverse order, the numbers 19 and 7 line up both the times. This is significant from another angle, explained below. Note: I will keep pointing out as many elements of these patterns as space permits and then encourage the readers to do their own research to fully acquaint themselves with all the variables at play. Similarly, the expression “SEVEN heavens” is repeated seven times. As is the expression “creation of heavens” even though one can argue that the creation obviously happened once. I will share one more Self-Reference instance. This particular example is not clear cut at first. The word ‘Trumpet’ is used a total of ten times. The word ‘Blowing’ is used twenty times. The relation becomes apparent once one is made aware of the fact that the Trumpet will be blown twice on the Day of Judgement. These types of ratios are often detailed in the text of the Quran. Layer 3 We now move on to the third layer. A complex arrangement of text, where the content of the Quran is arranged in what has come to be known as the Ring composition. In short, if we were to arrange the text of a chapter or a set of verses on a number line or write them on the circumference of a circle, the left side of the text by subject matter will be reflected on the right side of the line or circle respectively. Not only that, but unmistakable deliberate use of words like ‘middle’ or ‘before and after’ can be found in the midpoint verses to rule out coincidence. Although these types of patterns can be found in some poetry of the time and even the Bible, as always it is the scale, consistency and complexity that sets it apart. Recently, Mary Douglas’ essay on Thinking in Circles highlighted the techniques. Kenneth Way describes her work like this: “In Thinking in Circles, she draws on some of her previous works, including In the Wilderness (Sheffield, 1993) and Leviticus as Literature (Oxford, 1999). In all of these books she discusses aspects of “ring compositions,” which are basically complex chiasms. She explains that the primary distinction between a mere chiasm (e.g., A-B-B’-A’ or A-B-C-D-C’-B’-A’) and a ring composition is that in the latter, the central section (D) reinforces the rhetoric and themes of the outer framework (A and A’). To this primary feature Douglas adds six additional features that characterize rings (but you will have to read the book to discover the six others!).” The Quran incorporates the ring composition in addition to the rest of the layers. Needless to say, the layered elements are missing from those other instances. Let me first give a very simple demonstration of ring composition. Chapter two of the Quran is reported to have been revealed over a period of ten years. Most chapters were revealed in spread over years and the verses overlapping the verse of other chapters. The total number of verses in chapter two is 286; the first 143 verses are narrating events in the past and the second 143 verses are all about the future. The word "middle" is used only once in the entire chapter and falls in the middle of the chapter. The first verse is mirroring the last verse and the second verse is mirroring the second to last verse, all the way to the 143rd verse. It will take another decade or so for Professor Raymond Farrin, (Interview) who studied classical Arabic, to elaborate on the ring composition of the Quran. Once again this is something that was not plucked out of thin air, but the phenomenon is referenced in the Quran 39:23, as is the case with almost all the so far discovered patterns as we will see. An example in his own words will illustrate the phenomenon: 📷 https://preview.redd.it/wvnvsls270b51.jpg?width=602&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=df028733372c61154c870f47e698fe25462bd113 A color-coded illustration here will make the phenomenon clearer: 📷 https://preview.redd.it/m25baav570b51.jpg?width=602&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=032238d639ca9d58693bf41e7f659ab703539fa8 For a detailed account please go here or here for a video version Layer 4 "If God speaks to man, he undoubtedly uses the language of mathematics."~~~ Henri Poincare So, we continue, in the modern era and inch towards the Math part. Rashad Khalifa is credited with discovering the 19 based patterns. But this is also a problem. It is clear that Rashad Khalifa after a promising start lost his way. But it is a bit baffling to notice that there are still a lot of naysayers when it comes to the mathematical patterns found in the Quran. Most keep bringing up the original Rashad Khalifa fiasco as evidence (Kaheel sheds some light on the issue, page 11). In addition to the Bible reference above, there is a tendency among the naysayers to try and compare this phenomenon to Abraham Lincoln’s speech or a passage from Moby Dick or some card trick. The objective obviously is to try and dilute this Earth-shattering discovery or different motives. Comparing it to all these one-pagers is like comparing a single apple to all the oranges in Florida and then some. Different fruit, monumentally different scales. Needless to say, scaling is the elephant in the room the naysayers choose not to see. To shut the door on God's Universal message expressed in the Universal language of numbers 7 is a serious stretch. Besides, the field has moved on and in addition to the 19 based patterns, one can find 7 and 16 and 10 odd and even based and prime number-based patterns and word and letter counts throughout the Quran. Pretending they are not there will have zero effect on the fact that they have already been discovered and can easily be verified with minimal effort. Although a number of scholars have made a gallant effort in explaining the immutability of the Quran from a purely linguistic perspective, it is still firmly in the realm of subjective. One such effort is that of Hamza Tzortzis (His "Scientific Miracles" effort didn’t go as planned but he did correct himself). Similarly, Gary miller’s argument driven approach is very powerful, but a determined skeptic is not going to be moved. In order to enter universally understood objectivity we need the help of objective tools. The issue of the mathematical patterns in the Quran is here to stay. Despite the wobbly start Rashad Khalifa gave it. Although the word and letter count, Self-Reference, ring compositions and argument driven structures are by themselves objective in nature, however, in order to formally cross over into the objective domain we need numbers. The biggest argument for math is God's challenge of the impossibility of replicating even a single chapter of the Quran. Let us keep in mind the fact that the shortest chapter of the Quran consists of three short verses that barely cover a single line. But what a line. More on that later. I think God will not throw down a gauntlet of this magnitude and leave it to mere mortals to bicker over whether Quran's eloquence was matched or not, and, in addition, restricted to experts of one single language while the message and the challenge are both Universal. What I am trying to get to with this long rant is that we need to drag the argument to the present. One may be able to make a case for the literary brilliance angle at some point in the past but we now live in the world of sophisticated cryptography, secure communication protocols, blockchain technologies that make transactions computationally impractical to reverse. We are on the verge of an AI revolution that will be able to produce works of literature and art that will dwarf everything ever produced by man. Those involved in this research, are confident that Quran will come up roses when exposed to these modern revolutions in knowledge. It is a pity, that in this digital age, Muslims have been cowed down into a position where mentioning the Quranic numbers has become a heresy. The questions, in fact, should not end there. Why is it that after 1,400 years of constant study we have not been able to solve the mystery of the following verses. Yes, there are a number of speculative "explanations" but nothing that can live up to the test of time. Here are the verses (literal translations): "And We have certainly given you, seven of the often repeated and the great Quran. Quran 15:87 And We constructed over you seven strong, Quran 78:12 "And [by] the even and the odd" Quran 89:03 "Over it (is) nineteen" Quran 74:30 These four verses reference quantitative values and nothing else. Forget the Huruf-e-Muqatta'at (abbreviated letters or letter symbols). The conventional interpretation has even failed to get to the bottom of the above linguistically sound and grammatically correct verses. The irony is lost on the naysayers when asked to explain for instance Quran 15:87. Their usual response is that it refers to the opening chapter of the Quran. When pressed how that is, they shoot back by saying it matches the number of verses in the opening chapter. When asked; how do you know? They say, ‘I counted them’. To be fair it also points to one of the many layers discovered in the first chapter, but it doesn’t stop there. Elsewhere in the Quran, whenever numbers are mentioned in verses by themselves, the context is at least implied within the respective verses and then clarified in either a preceding verse or a subsequent verse. Please go here for some more details. The premise I am trying to establish here is that they are not some random patterns, but God referenced them in a way that would make sense to different people in different times and space. “A hidden connection is stronger than an obvious one.” ~~~ Heraclitus of Ephesus The other important aspect of the phenomenon is that since Quran is such a target rich environment from the data points perspective, sometimes people want it to bend to their preconceived notions. Thisresults in a lot of secondary patterns that may not live up to the kind of intense scrutiny the primary patterns are able to absorb. If one were to assign colors to the various elements in the Quran, you are going to see rainbows. Same goes for "Gematrical Values", used extensively and needlessly by some. But if you fancy an interesting study based on it then go here. Another interesting take is by Eng. Adnan El Rafae (I don’t have a better link yet) who assigned each letter of the alphabet a numeric value based on its number of occurrence in the Quran, and the results are not any less spectacular than rainbows. So how about that one liner. The shortest chapter in the Quran is chapter No. 108, which consists of three short verses. Here is the total text of the chapter: “إِنَّا أَعْطَيْنَاكَ الْكَوْثَرَ فَصَلِّ لِرَبِّكَ وَانْحَرْ إِنَّ شَانِئَكَ هُوَ الْأَبْتَرُ” The unique thing about this chapter is that it introduces 10 based patterns in a very direct way. To start with, the chapter consists of 10 words. Each verse in turn is written using just ten letters of the alphabet, some repeating. The first letter of the chapter Alif is repeated ten times in the chapter. Furthermore, there are ten unique letters that appear only once in the chapter, each second word of the verse ends with the letter Kaf (K), each verse ends with the letter Ray(R). Ray happens to be the tenth letter of the Arabic alphabet. When we add all the positions where the tenth letter Ray of the alphabet occurs, the result is 108, the chapter number of chapter Rahman. Not only that, but when we repeat the same exercise with the 6 letters that are recurring across the three verses, the sum once again is 108. And several other combinations. The symmetry , so far discovered, of a dozen different variables in one short line overlaps not only into the structure of the Arabic Alphabet but other chapters of the Quran. For a video demo please go here. (Please ignore the references to the Hadith literature because of verification issues). Here is an illustration showing part of the full range of the symmetry: 📷 https://preview.redd.it/g6xwxrq870b51.jpg?width=602&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=ed28bb5b528a7dad1da305825bb00c95945cee74 10 based pattern Fig Moving on, below is one of my humble contributions, where the two major patterns, 19 based and 7 based overlap: The example below is a continuation of the initial work done by Kaheel and is based on 19, the number of letters in the opening verse of the Quran. The number is a monstrous 114 digits long. The opening verse of the Quran is repeated 114 times in the Quran, the number is a multiple of 19. Traditionally 113 times as the opening verse of each chapter, the only exception being chapter xx. Once it is found within the body of a chapter, xxx, in addition to the opening verse, to make up the difference. An interesting fun fact about the opening verses: The lips of the reciter (In Arabic) of the verses touch exactly 19 times during its recitation of the first chapter. Try it. When you compare that to the fact that in English, when counting from zero to a million, the lips touch for the first time on the last number. Getting back to the number below,
Number of letters the example below is based on is 19
The length of the number below is a monstrous 114 digits long
The opening verse itself is repeated 114 times in the Quran which is a multiple of 19
The number mirrors the occurrences of Bismillah (Opening verse) in the Quran chapter by chapter. 1 denotes one time, 2 denotes twice and 0 none.
Each natural number (1,3,5,7,8) in the quotient is repeated 19 times each exactly, that is mind blowing
And if there are still undecided, here is something that brings it all home. The number 15873 is staring at us in the quotient multiple times appropriately separated with a zero, please verify for yourself, in the 15th Chapter, verse number eighty-seven, the third word is none other than seven (سَبْعًا).
When reading from left to right, we have 111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111211111111111111111011111111 = 15873015873015873015873015873015873015873015873015873015873015873015873015873015873015887301587301587301573015873 x 7 When reading from right to left, we have: 111111110111111111111111112111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111 = 15873015730158730158730158873015873015873015873015873015873015873015873015873015873015873015873015873015873015873 x 7 And it’s all about Seven, the often repeating. Quran 15:87 with 19 thrown in as well, confirming two of the major numerical indicators so far discovered that have no other apparent meaning in the context of their respective verses. And even the sum and multiples of the number of the chapter and verse are perfectly in sync and 15:87 renders to 1+5+8+7=21=7+7+7=7 x 3 and 1x5x8x7=280/7=40. By the way, the number of words in the verse in question are 7 and 7 is also the first number mentioned in the Quran. I will bring this up a few times. We must realize we haven't even scratched the surface. Abduldaem Al-Kaheel pointed out that even in the very verse where the gauntlet is thrown to both Humans and Jinns to produce a Quran- like work, the signature is there: ““Say: "If the whole of mankind and Jinns were to gather together to produce the like of this Qur'an, they could not produce the like thereof, even if they backed up each other with help and support.” Isra’: 17:88 The number of words used in the above verse is 19 and the number of the letters of the above verse is 76, a multiple of number 19 i.e. 19 × 4= 76 and the letters of which this verse is written in Arabic are qaf, lam, ya, alef, gem, ta, mem, e’in, non, sin, waw, tha, ha, za, ra, kaf, ba, da, tha, and they are exactly 19 letters. The question is what's the relationship between these numbers and the holy Qur’an? Amazingly, the total of these numbers is 19+ 19 +76 =114 and the number of the chapters, surahs, of the holy Qur’an is exactly 114.” One can go on all day, but the point is that these layered occurrences make the whole Quran fantastically complex. If you think it is a coincidence, here are the formulas for probability, please have a go. P(A∪B) = P(A) + P(B) - P(A∩B) and P(A∩B) = P(A) ⋅ P(B) A few more examples. Here is what is typical of the Quran's text, also discovered by Al-Kaheel. The following example also dispel the notion that any verses were added to the Quran. There are exactly 77 chapters between the first chapter where the occurrence of the number 7 is to be found the first time and the last chapter where the last occurrence of number 7 is to be found. That is not all. When we count the number of verses between the first occurrence of the number 7 and the last occurrence of the number 7, we find that there are precisely 5649 verses between them. This number is a multiple of 7, (807x7) of course. From chapter to verse, but it does not stop there. From another angle, the number of verses from the beginning of the chapter, where the first occurrence of 7 is recorded, is exactly 28 (7x4). Even when we bore down to the number of words, 406 (7x58) it follows the same pattern. Similarly, the sum total of all the verses in the Quran, Sum (1:6236) =19,446,966, is also is a multiple of 7. 19446966/7= 2,778,138 Not only that, but when the opening verse (repeated 112 times) is added to the total, it too is divisible by seven, Sum (1:6348) 20151726/7= 2878818 ...

"The only way to rectify our reasonings is to make them as tangible as those of the Mathematicians, so that we can find our error at a glance, and when there are disputes among persons, we can simply say: Let us calculate [calculemus], without further ado, to see who is right." ~~~Gottfried Leibniz (1646 - 1716) Before demanding proof, the problem needs to be framed first. I will try to make this write up somewhat of a resource. All the related body of knowledge will hopefully help with the necessary framing. Mathematics by itself cannot prove anything outside the relationships between numbers. But one can formally represent thoughts and/or observations through mathematics in such a way that their consistency can be tested. On some fundamental level we accept these representations even without proof because they look right. The famous 1+1=2 although not yet proven still makes perfect sense. Granted we can provide proofs within a subset of mathematics, in this case algebra, but mathematical proofs on a fundamental level are elusive. What mathematics does well is to make sense of measurable, comparable and chance scenarios. Relevant to this discussion, the probability that our existence is a mere chance is much more than 10 to the power 50, which is a generally agreed upon number for impossible in most modeling tools. The actual calculated number for life to have occurred by chance is anywhere between 10 to the power 10 and 10 to the power 100. In fact, some even scale the latter number up to several million. All that I am about to share has been around for decades, a couple even past the half a century mark. Hence, the claim that there is no evidence of God is nothing but sheer ignorance. Some would even claim it is a choice. Then there are those who get discouraged or surrender to their confirmation bias instead of seeing it through, just because somebody claimed to have “debunked” it. Evidence/proof of God debate If we were to look for a purely mathematical proof for the “existence” (for want of a better word, God by definition is free from the constraints of time and space) of God that concisely and accurately details such a proof, then look no further than Gödel. But do read on, it is not only about Gödel. There is a tendency in some quarters to attack Gödel’s verified proof (See note 1 below), but here is the thing, it makes no sense to use the old set of rules to attack the new set of rational rules Gödel himself helped formulate. Let us not forget the crisis in mathematics at the turn of the last century. It was Gödel that made the old set once again tenable to begin with. A reality devoid of necessity, possibility and all the truths that cannot be demonstrated in "all possible worlds" is not real. Most critics of the proof utterly and totally misunderstand the expression “all possible worlds”. It is not a reference to some imaginary far away world(s), the world in question is right here and how we make logic and reason to work and perceive everything in the present. Hence, Gödel’s proof is nothing, but ontological proof expressed mathematically without Hume’s critique of ontological proof applying to it. Sure, we can argue some more over the maintainability of ontological proofs, but if that would resolve anything to the satisfaction of all then I am all in. Sadly, that is not what the five thousand-year-old history of the issue has taught us. The often-observed rigid way of demanding proof by some skeptics is at best dated, even mathematicians are moving away from something as fundamental as equality to equivalence. Counter intuitive to some but that is exactly what is happening. And there are very good reasons for that. Gödel did a fantastic job, however there is another way, for lessor mortals, to go about providing more than enough evidence for the existence of God through mathematics. Before we venture out, the first question that must be raised is, “What attribute of God can be measured with our existing tools?”. Why is this important? Because without any measurement we will lack data to work on. And the analysis of any existing data will remain unresolved if we do not know what we are looking for. But first allow me to bring in some much-needed context- warning-long read. A lot of you are very well clued into the debate but others may find it useful. It is also hoped that those who were previously exposed to some part of the relevant research will benefit from a properly framed second look. No matter what kind of proof we come up with, the proof of God is going to be relative; what passed as proof in the era of Vedas, Bible or Quran revelations would be laughed at today and by the same token even if we were to come up with a workable demonstration to prove the existence of a God, people a thousand years from now would think of it as funny, at best. The funny thing is that we cannot even imagine why it would appear funny to them. So, where do we start? The claim or the many claims pointing to communication between man and God would be one way to go about it. It is of course possible to move the veracity of communication from man to God from the anecdotal to empirical and verifiable by simply scaling it in the same way that it is already done routinely in the case of some anecdotal evidence. An interesting perspective here. However, it will make more sense to focus on the claims of communication from God to man because if there is going to be any measurable attribute of God it is probably going to be in this form of communication. The question of what exactly it is that one would want to see measured or data collected on and with what, needs gathering. Before we tackle this issue of communication let us deal with the proverbial “So where is the evidence?” Well there is tons of evidence, the real question ought to be what exactly would one like to see and in what form? If one expects eight neat lines preferably in plain English that should jump at someone and wash away all their currently held conviction then no, it’s not going to happen. Besides, a determined skeptic can simply dig her or his heels in and keep dismissing everything. There is no rational cure for irrationally held convictions. Please do not say any scientifically verifiable empirical evidence will do. We must be careful not to slip into Scientism. The very claim “we should only believe what can be scientifically proven” cannot be scientifically proven. It is, first, a philosophical claim and secondly, a classic Self-Defeating Statement. Wanting science to have all the answers doesn’t translate into science having all the answers. That holds true for both the present and the future. To start with the observable Universe is convincing enough for most people. A quick take first. To the question “If God created the Universe then who created God?” please refer to infinite regression while keeping in mind the definitional contrast between the creation and the created. Both cannot be part of the same regression chain. A series of similar or identical propositions where the sole demonstration of each one is the previous one, leads to fallacious reasoning. Not to mention category conflict when we want to know who created an infinite being. Another infinite being? If so, then what exactly is infinite to begin with? Mathematically one can play around a bit with infinity in terms of aleph-naught etc. but general infinite is just that, infinite, one infinite. From another angle, “Who created God?” is a separate question that cannot be used to scrap or answer the original question “Who created the Universe?”. Similarly, even if one were to assume that the Universe was not created does not discount asking the question “Does God exist?” The current “There is no God” narrative is unraveling fast within the very circles that were leveraged to get it going. In the scientific community, there is a change of attitude being witnessed. Until recently, few scientists would have risked the G-word even in private for obvious reasons. Now they are thinking big. The issue of information for instance is gaining steam and has in fact moved beyond the “information realism”. In the words of one proponent/Author: Bernardo Kastrup “As I elaborate extensively in my new book, The Idea of the World, none of this implies solipsism. The mental universe exists in mind but not in your personal mind alone. Instead, it is a transpersonal field of mentation that presents itself to us as physicality—with its concreteness, solidity and definiteness—once our personal mental processes interact with it through observation. This mental universe is what physics is leading us to, not the hand-waving word games of information realism.” Even evolution itself needs a rethink to accommodate the “beauty” factor. And some have started doing just that by unfreezing Darwin’s original concerns about beauty. Here is a glimpse into somebody many thinks should get the Nobel prize. Why science needs imagination and beauty In a slightly different vein, some take the view that there is no proof that God is responsible for the existence of the Universe even if God exists. Others take the easy route and declare that it is impossible to get to the truth as things stand today. Funny how easy it is to declare something impossible, in most cases it is reduced to a simple declaration, compared to the effort required to show something that was thought impossible possible. Yes, that old "absence of evidence is not evidence of absence" again. In the information age, to claim absence when there is presence is the height of ignorance. The seriousness of any truth claims , cuts both ways. Claims both positive and negative must be backed by evidence. Yes, you can prove a negative. Not only that, but almost any negative claim can be restated in the positive. The supposed argument from silence is not the way to go either. Usually employed to try and dilute existing evidence. We all are aware of the ever-evolving talking points of the self-appointed “Horsemen” of the “movement”. From the very weak negative existential proposition-one that tries to deny the existence of something- to the faulty analogy of the Spaghetti monsters. This pasta driven improbability scenario seems to have run its course. The shift to the absurd current talking point “God ‘probably’ does not exist” declaration is telling. All of these positions are problematic. Both ontologically and when reduced to naked numbers. Let me quote Jonathan Sacks, author of The Great Partnership: Science, Religion, and the Search for Meaning, who articulated the issue wonderfully: “Atheism deserves better than the new atheists whose methodology consists of criticizing religion without understanding it, quoting texts without contexts, taking exceptions as the rule, confusing folk belief with reflective theology, abusing, mocking, ridiculing, caricaturing, and demonizing religious faith and holding it responsible for the great crimes against humanity. Religion has done harm; I acknowledge that. But the cure for bad religion is good religion, not no religion, just as the cure for bad science is good science, not the abandonment of science.” The current “probably” talking point pushed through the debating circles has opened the door to absurd reactions. How about labeling food as “Probably not poisonous” and airplanes marked “Probably safe to fly.” The debate is not even about the evidence that something is confirmed absent, there is none; the focus must be on defining what will be an accepted form of evidence to an individual when it comes to God. Various claims pointing to tons of evidence needs exploring, however, before evaluating the different forms of evidence, one needs to set individual believability thresholds. So, what exactly are individual believability thresholds? Believability is tied to hands-on individual verification and validation. The key is to avoid the “my experts are better than your experts” trap. Hunting for evidence should not be dependent on believing somebody before believing in something, or not believing in something. So, what’s wrong with experts, one may ask? Nothing. As long as they all agree on a given body of knowledge. The problem arises when two “experts” derive completely opposite conclusions from the same set of facts, and one is back to square one. And ironically left with a leap of faith between competing claims. Often confirmation bias is the easy route out. The other logical question to ask would be why not become an expert yourself? Always an option for those who can hack it, not to mention the cost associated with gaining expert level knowledge. Did somebody mention 10,000 hours? Even at minimum wage that will add up to a pretty sum. Even 1,000 hours will be a bridge too far for most. What is the point? The point is that the evidence needs to be in a form that any reasonably educated person can understand and internalize it. So how do we define any reasonably educated person? How about Reading, Writing,and Arithmetic? That sounds about right. And we may only need two out of three here. Let us also tackle the question, read taunt, of which God? I think we need to go past that one very quickly, God must be one and the only God unless we go back now and change the definition of God. Besides, when the evidence is verified, this question will resolve itself automatically for each individual,irrespective of what name he or she calls God. Which, by the way, is a more accurate reflection of the “different gods” taunt, as opposed to actual different gods. Besides, it would seem that we are wired for oneness. Let’s come back to what type and/or level of evidence will satisfy someone? To some it would seem as an attempt to shift the burden of proof remember the burden of proof is on the claimant, as we are constantly reminded. Actually, not in this case. What does it have to do with someone helping someone else find suitable evidence from the already published works? If we want some help, then it doesn't hurt to help facilitate the process. One also always has the option of going it alone. That is, if one is able to get past one’s own impossibility mindset. The essence of inquiry is that we must start out by asking questions. We only ask questions when we are not satisfied with the usual canned answers. So, let us revisit the three most often discussed:” What is the purpose of life?”, “Where did we come from?”, and most importantly,” Where are we headed?”. What about those who are not interested in chasing answers and are happy with things as they stand? In that case, there is no issue to resolve, at least not for the time being. However there is evidence that points to our tendencies to seek spirituality. Let us not forget a consensus is growing that 40 plus is the age of maturity, at least for men, women mature a little earlier, hence most have time. This is something that cannot be forced but bringing it to the attention of those not yet aware, in the best possible way, of course, must be an obligation as well. We can compare it to a safety or security issue, if one knows that a certain path is harmful (through a minefield for instance) to the point that irreparable damage is a possibility, then not pointing it out is irresponsible in the least and can even be termed criminal by some. After a while, it became clear to many of us that between the fence sitters and the blind faith proponents there must be a third way. Although the militant Atheist deserves to be ignored (I don’t know and you don’t know), along with the Existentialists (at best an idealistic doctrine), my question to the fence sitters is: “How long are you willing to wait?”. If we were all immortals, then I would jump up and sit on the fence right beside you lot and wait. This belief, non-belief, is not going to help me as an individual if the answers are not forthcoming within my lifetime and preferably earlier part of it. I have to shape my life now and ensure I don't miss a trick. Even by taking on Pascal's deficient wager I am still spreading my bets better than most. The write and wrong of it from a philosophical point of view is irrelevant to me as an individual. I am on the clock. If the desire is to look for answers, then the first question towards that end is a question of dealing with our current constraint; so, we circle back to what attribute of God can be measured with our existing tools. Without going into too much detail of how most of God’s attributes are out of our reach except one, let me make a case for the one that can be tested despite our constraints in a bit. In this way we can hopefully distance ourselves from the difficulty of defining what mathematics itself is or for that matter how a human mind works. Coming back to the issue of being “satisfied” with “things as they stand”, Science has highlighted the fact that at a certain age the mind is no longer satisfied with “it is what it is”. The prefrontal cortex continues to grow and there are competing theories as to when it peeks but this much is agreed upon, a search for life’s purpose and direction keeps growing with age. Let us quickly go through some other popular themes. Some may ask, if there is a God then won’t it be his or her responsibility to show us the evidence? Yes, indeed that is a logical position. The first thing that needs exploring is this very fact: did God already communicate the evidence/proof for his existence to us, that is all of us? Then there is the “Why doesn't God just show himself”? Apparently to every single person out there. Instead of getting into second-guessing God as to why God doesn’t just show himself to every single person, let’s stay with the evidence for God’s existence. When we meet God, we can always ask that particular question (s) at that time. In the meantime, let us focus on the doable. Besides, once God decides to do that then it is game over and none of what is being discussed will be relevant at that point. Let’s also put aside questions like; why not pray to God and ask him to bend the physical laws of nature? A small demo will do, some may ask. Well, unless the demo is with a running commentary from God himself, it may be of very little use to us. Not to mention the fact that then we will be veering into an on-demand demo from God scenario. Interesting! That old efficacy of prayer again. George Burnap articulated it well. “God governs the universe by fixed and uniform laws, not only for the sake of order but for human good... The fulfillment of every human desire would break up this order and bring everything into disorder and confusion.” And we actually find evidence of this, more on that later … Measuring attributes of God So finally, we will try to narrow down the one attribute of God that can be tested, at least to a certain degree. First up omnipresence. Do we currently have the tools to test God’s omnipresence? Given the fact that we are still struggling to confirm the presence of over 80% of what constitutes the Universe around us, so no, the omnipresence of God is a far cry for now. Similarly, testing for the omnipotence of God has its own set of constraints. Chief among them, linking any event to God, not to mention what level of testable power, within a given event, that can be “witnessed”, will be enough to term it Godlike. And then there is always going to be the issue of the on-demand occurrence of such an event. So, what is left? In fact, there is one attribute of God that can be tested both in terms of the past, the present and the projected future and that is God’s omniscience, which is intelligence and knowledge without measure. We may not have the tools to explore the full extent of God’s intellect, but we can set ourselves realistic criteria which should be sufficiently advanced to be termed Godlike and then try to apply them. This also fits very well within the energy, matter and information trinity of General system theory. We see how the input of data is the key to making any system work. Closely related is the order to create the information for input and the order to initiate the input of the same. More on that can be found here So once again, where do we start? An excellent evergreen question. The most logical place to start testing for Godlike intelligence would be in any possible communication from God, as previously touched upon. Hence, focusing on claims in the name of God will be a good starting point. Here we will be relying on Mr. Occam and his instrument of choice. Before we proceed, it may be a good time to set some ground rules in order to maximize the chances of success. The first logical premise will have to be that the claim is of actual communication as opposed to reporting on such communication from God, in other words, the very word of God where God unambiguously and repeatedly claims to be the author of the communication. The second premise has to be that the communication is intact and in its original form. The reason for this particular condition is pretty obvious. If we can’t have access to the original form, then we will be restricted to merely what is said in the communication and to some extent on who conveyed the message. What we need is to be able to run forensics . This line of thinking, some may feel, is preparing the ground for countering the circular argument criticism of the like, “It is true because the Bible/Quran/Veda says it is true”. Criticism aside, given the modern tools at our disposal, we should be able to test and do a forensic audit for other than what is said in these claims of communication from God. The logical place to start once again must be the major religions of the world because those messages obviously have had the biggest impact. Going by the historical records, the one religious book that can be dated very close to the claimed original events is the Quran. The recent Birmingham manuscripts come to mind. Here again some may say that it is a case of cleverly steering the argument in the favor of one religion. I don’t know about the steering bit, but yes, we should always go where the argument takes us. It is reasonable to assume that if close to two billion people believe in something similar, it is worth investigating first. Some may say, “Surprise, surprise!”. Sarcasm noted, but I am willing to stick my neck out with considerable confidence. Interesting to note that most of those who champion the new Atheism have a special bias reserved for Islam. Do they already know something? So, when do we get to the juicy stuff if there is any? Modern communication protocols One thing I can guarantee you is plenty of juice. So, here is how I will try to build the case. Let me first touch upon how we authenticate the integrity of communication in modern times and then try and build a case for the integrity of the message of the Quran in a layered approach. The believability is tied to individual discoveries that build into literally a tsunami of evidence, and the accrued punch it packs. The so far discovered markers in the Quran point to the fact that there is something for everyone. From the very simple to mind-boggling complication as one would expect from a divine message. The reason for this lengthy context was to try and satisfy as many people along the way and deal with the often-asked questions as we went along. So, here is the important bit. The way we authenticate a modern communication is by embedding metadata in the message itself. That is data that says something about the data being communicated. If we want the data secured, then we encrypt it on top of that. I am not going to devolve too deep into the field of signal transmission or the vast field of encryption but just touch on the principles on which they are based. The Quran’s markers are in fact not only related to these principles but break new grounds in helping us view this field. The layers I referred to have to do with both reading a straightforward text on one hand and becoming aware of the arrangement of this very text in ways that give us additional information. In the same way text mining and text analytics work. The evidence of God for the non-experts but reasonably educated, can be found in this additional information. Interestingly there is enough of it to keep even the experts busy for thousands of years to come, yes, thousands at least. Modern communications rely on packets of information. Every transmission consists of hundreds of these packets which are routed through various nodes of a given network or interconnected networks. The packets leave the point of origin and may or may not follow the same route and then are reassembled at the intended destination point using the header information which contains the metadata attached to each packet. Currently, there is a constant back and forth exchange between the origin and destination points of each message which ensures that all packets are accounted for. The technology is already in place where even this constant cross-checking of packets between the point of origin and the destination point will not be necessary. Simple algebraic equation will be applied to packets themselves and the message as a whole, to authenticate the integrity of messages (s) on arrival. The Quranic transmission, in fact, takes these principles to a whole new level. Early findings This whole thing picked up speed with a chap called Muhammad Fuad Abdul Baqi. Basically, what he did was to index every single word used in the entire Quran. In fact, he did it for Hadith (The claimed sayings of the Prophet of God) books as well, but as one would expect only the Quran exhibits the phenomenon we will be exploring. There are claims for patterns in other religious texts as one would anticipate but those, when compared with the Quran, are like the showing of the proverbial candle to the sun. It’s the sheer quantity and complexity of the discovered data that set it uniquely apart. Not finding the patterns in other books does not mean they lose all value. Not being in their original form has a lot to do with it of course. So, how will we connect all this to the evidence of God? The very fact that not only God in first person is claiming to be the author of the Quran - remember our first premise - but the Author of the Quran throws down the gauntlet to all comers to reproduce a work like it. Still, we are not going to take what Quran says at face value as of yet. Logically, “because the book says so” will make more sense after we first establish the authenticity of the Quran the product. We will initially try to verify and validate the complexity of its content to such an extent that it should point to something way beyond coincidences and firmly in the sphere of a Godlike intelligence. Once the verification process is done, we can then revisit and see what is being said in it and find the connection to the source of the communication. In short, the focus is to get to a framework where evidence of God can be justified, presented and verified. As I previously mentioned, some of you may have been exposed to some aspect of this phenomenon, in both a positive way and a negative manner. What is missing from most understandings is the fact that this thing is several levels deep. A determined skeptic may boohoo one aspect of it but when the larger picture emerges only the very blind will be able to ignore it. Before I introduce the most basic first layer, the word count, it is important to point out that this is not numerology, no memory tricks, no mirrors and certainly no smoke. Just straight up math. What we have is a number of interrelated patterns based on counts and the positioning of words, terms, and letters. The signature of God is in the scale and complexity of these arrangements. In contrast, the most famous of the Bible code is based on Equidistance Letter Sequence (ELS) and that too in well-defined very limited number of boxes. The Quranic patterns are not only several layers deep but touch each and every chapter, verse, word and even letter of the Quran. The reason I will mostly stick with counting/Arithmetic is because in addition to our self-imposed “no experts” constraint, deriving definite and sound conclusions from the various “scientific” verses of the Quran is not always obvious if one lacks the relevant domain knowledge. Given that the natural languages, by definition, are elastic, and a case can always be made to say that is not what the author meant etc. Quran, in fact, has an elegant solution for it. More on that later. Apologies for deferring tolater, but there is so much to cover. The other issue why these references to scientific phenomenon need to be sidelined, is the accusation that a lot of the present discoveries had some references in different ancient manuscripts, both religious and otherwise. Hence the author could have had access to them and thus no miracle. Therefore, we will stick as close to prior as humanly possible. Even though theywould be lottery winning odds to somehow conclude that the author got lucky by not dragging in the mountain of proven wrong references scattered in the same type of sources where he allegedly sourced his scientifically correct descriptions. In the interest of framing the issue accurately allow me one last digress. Before we get into the structural elements of the Quran, it is important to keep in mind two important fundamentals. The first one has to do with the multitude and diversity of rhetorical tools employed in the Quran and second has to do with the number of domains the text tackles. The former sprawls across alliteration, analogy, antiphrasis, antithesis, asyndeton, assonance, cadence, chiasmus, epizeuxis, equivoque, homonymy, hyperbole, isocolon, simile, metaphor, metonymy, palindrome, parenthesis, polyptoton, rhetorical questioning, and synecdoche. The latter takes it to another level. Quran is not only a complete and comprehensive political and economic system on one hand, but the depth and breadth of its narration even covers social and personal mannerisms, including marital discipline. At its core, the Quran establishes rules relating to fair governance, economic equality and resource allocation, inheritance and property rights, criminal justice, astronomy, chemistry, biology, psychology, sociology, business and so on. It was important to go through all that before we get into the numbers and ratios. Quran is a sea of knowledge expressed in the most eloquent manner possible. It is also important to point out that extensive knowledge of the Arabic language is not a must to be able to verify the evidence in question, reason and logic is, which in a way makes the Quran more or less language neutral. So, what is this numbers “game” of the Quran? Layers of the Quranic patterns The order I will be introducing these layers in, is based on my personal understanding and can actually be used in any given combination and quite a bit of overlap should be expected. In fact, we see that almost every discovered pattern extends beyond its core location and touches a number of other points in the Quran. In all probability pointing to a super structure or structures. ... Continued in Part II of III

Wikipedia currently has over 53 million articles in over 300 languages. Despite the impressive number of articles, not all topics can be written in this free encyclopedia. At the same time, the community of each language version has the ability to decide which topic can be described in the encyclopedia, and which is not (for example, article must be notable). In addition, each language version can describe the same topic in its own way - it all depends on the number and experience of interested authors (Wikipedia users who edit articles). Almost every Wikipedia article has an alignment to certain categories. Additionally, based on the content, you can specify the subject of the article - for example, using semantic relations on Wikidata or DBpedia. More details on the automatic classification process can be found in various scholarly papers (e.g. for articles or sources). This article selected the most-developed language versions of Wikipedia with more than 1 million articles, including English, German, French, Spanish, Russian, Polish and other. After the classification of articles, only those that are dedicated to individual books. As a result for English Wikipedia 56697 articles about books were found, for French - 24269 books, for Italian - 15924 books, for German - 13228 books, for Spanish - 11789 books, for Russian - 8169 books, for Portuguese - 7206 books, for Polish - 6936 books, for Arabic - 6781 books, for Japanese - 6102 books and for Chinese - 5123 books. As mentioned earlier, every Wikipedia article can have different language versions, so we can find out different names of the same object (book). Using open data on Wikipedia article views we can find out how many times a given article has been viewed on specific days. After collecting data for viewing all Wikipedia articles on books in the appropriate language versions May 2020 ranking of the most readable was made. First, the positions of books in the ranking are shown, which were obtained by adding up the page views from different language versions for a given book. Later, the most popular books are shown for only one language version of Wikipedia. Recently we observed that visitors number for some articles was “overclocked” in some periods of time. Therefore, we decide to provide additional modification of the pageview statistics for such cases and change this number (usually by reduction). Fairness of statistics for each article in selected language version in selected months can be assessed using such indicators as: number of the edits and authors, page protection, the rate of citation increasing of the article, popularity statistics of related keywords (phrases) in Google Trends and others.

There is a reason that women kill their children so often, once they become a liability to "their life-style" that's when they can be exterminated without remorse from the mother. Women are NOT nurturing, they are opportunists, children are just used as a tool and a shield for them.
Speaking only of elective, non-emergency, no rape, "I just don't want a kid" cases (the majority): You need to convince me that all woman seeking elective abortions aren't responsible for having gotten pregnant, and that people should be killed while innocent of a crime. Your reply doesn't do this. The mother has responsibility for the kid existing. And you can't kill an innocent person. Killing people might just be flat out wrong, I'm not sure. I don't believe the mother's autonomy gets her out of her responsibility.
I'll take this as a joke tbh. But on the offchance you're a serious soy, womens mate selection has existed since the birth of our species to ensure survival. Nowadays we don't need that, we're the top species. Nowadays mate selection behaviour leeches into basic human interaction, and even a lot of males display such disdain towards ugly men. It's more than just sex, it's a spectrum of sex, relationships, friendships, and being shown basic human decency and not being looked at like you should be exterminated just for walking to the shop to buy a loaf of bread. Lookism has existed since forever, but nowadays it's to an extreme case. Because modern society has abundance of travel and access to good looking people, and Hollywood/media/social media, constantly only showing good looking people being praised and ugly people being shat on. Ugly people are further discriminated against. Lookism would be understandable if it was to ensure survival of our species, but it is not understandable when it's an excuse to treat unattractive people in a fully functional and world dominant society, like absolute dirt. Women and men display such hatred.
Exactly this! And feeling justified in harassing people in their homes, workplaces, lives, all because of politics, that's a mental illness. Just keep in mind we strive to live and let live, but theirs (elite, not just lefties) are playing a "zero sum" game. This means anyone outside the acceptable ideology must be destroyed, not just ignored.
So we should kill a few million more people by installing a Communist reich in America? Great plan, flawless execution. Nothing can go wrong and we can kill people for fun. Rrrrriiiiiggggghhhhht. And I love how mentioning (((them))) immediately disqualifies me from debate? Why is history so touchy for you? Are you Jewish? Did I rustle your yarmulke? It's history not some nazi shit. I hate authoritarianism. Fascism is a flawed prospect too. I'm just mentioning that there has never been a utopic society and damn the fools thinking there will be one under Communism. It's a damn mystery to me why we keep supporting a Jewish ethnostate too. They are allowed to discriminate but gentiles aren't? We're living at the expense of a global minority. Let us have our land, let them have their land. Ancient society thrived without immigration and diversity. Is that racist? No, its ingrained in humanity. Birds of a feather flock together. Rome was a great nation, so great that it created weak men and collapsed early on in it's history from being so comfy. TL;DR Utopic societies don't work, there is a sort of unnatural element to integration, I'm not a nazi (LOL fascism is shit and so is communism) but mentioning the Jew is not illegal and it is not a crime to talk about history.
Abortion had devalued human life and TAUGHT that it can be destroyed in a bloody violent manner for mere convenience, or any other reason. The killer wants this power over others. After all every woman has it. This is not a perfect explanation, but it is a part of it. Necessary but not sufficient to the understanding.
There's not nearly as many of those like you think. And besides, it takes months if not years to train drone pilots and they can be shot. On top of that, the overwhelming majority of the military wouldn't fire on American citizens.
This is the first relevant question I've seen about mass shootings today. Along side this we should be questioning mental health. No same person wakes up and is like I'm gonna kill as many people as I can today. Most these people spend at least and few day to and few weeks or even months palnning.
Yikes, sweaty let's unpack this low IQ post. Islamic ideology is written in the Quran which explicitly condones the use of violence against non-believers. To compare this to white nationalism and pretend like white nationalism has some canon similar to the Quran which dictates that we should kill is a laughable assumption. The El Paso shooter is like any other school shootemass shooter, a deranged and mentally fucked individual. Part of the problem these attacks keep happening is largely because people like you and the media supporting you cut-off any roads that may lead to more diplomatic solutions. What's the result? You leave the road open to violent solutions. Perhaps if you stopped being retarded and actually stop poking the bear, you wouldn't get mauled and similarly, if you stopped demonizing, disenfranchising, humiliating and accusing of all manners of things, these terrorist attacks wouldn't happen.
just like video games are why columbine happened. clearly! those game dems should be hanged! /s but in all honesty, we can see that recent inventions like the internet, social media, and smartphones are all having disastrous effects on people's brains and social development. its not the actual internet or social media that's the root of destruction-it's the people and their unwillingness to discipline themselves
Its ridiculous because its illogical on every possible level. Here lets have the "debate". I think all white people should be killed because they're white. Counter me. (Hint: Literally nothing you say is going to matter because you're going to try and use logic against an illogical mindset. You can show me studies, stats, and provable data that proves that white people aren't inferior to other races but nothing is going to change my mind that white people are a lesser race and should be killed.)
I mean, when you talk about how Mexicans are terrible in your rallies, imply you think they should be shot but don't say it and only say “you can't say that”, then when someone in the crowd says it you laugh and do a “you know it” smirk, you're sort of responsible. Specially when you're, you know, the President of the United States.
agree but yelling -im going to kill myself- is part of the ploy. they just want attention. well, he has all the attention he could ever want. cause he will have to go to jail for this. no male privilege on this one. either capital one or the govt is talking about suing github. congress wants amazon to explain what happen. capital one is taking a hit because they laid off their tech team ages ago and moved everything to the cloud. I dont think a mental defense will help him get off. he can try.
This is an especially huge sucker punch for gay people. We're often very gender non-conforming as children. I can't even imagine being a gay kid now, and having everyone say that you're trans. The trans movement is going to hoover-up all of the gay kids and mutilate their bodies. How is that not a kind of genocide? That's exactly what Iran does. I tell everybody that will listen, which is basically nobody, that everyone is non-binary, because no one is a walking gender stereotype. Nobody fits into the boxes that society tells them they're supposed to fit into. Let the "manly" women be "manly" and let the "girly" men be "girly". They're still men and women. Nobody should have to take hormones, get mutilating irreversible surgery, or use the pronoun du jour, just because they don't fit the mold. People should just be themselves. The trans movement tells people they have to destroy their bodies to better fit in the box. That's incredibly regressive and conservative. The boxes should be destroyed and people should be free to be themselves. If an adult, knowing full well the consequences of their actions, wants to mutilate themself to better fit in the box, for whatever reasons, and pays for it themself, then they can go for it. No hormones or surgery for minors. We should encourage people to just be themselves and be happy. If this makes me a TERF then so be it.
It has to do with a loss of purpose and identity In general, and religion is one part of that. Other parts include marrying and having kids, life goals that actually accomplish something (like serving your country or helping your community), and shared culture. One or two of these things can be destroyed, and society can continue. But they are all under attack at once. Relationships nowadays are a joke, religion is absent, and people do not work for their country or family or culture, they work only to make money to buy things to fill the void left by the absence of traditional values.
24The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand: 25That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders. 26This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations. 27For the LORD of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back? 29Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent's root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent. 30And the firstborn of the poor shall feed, and the needy shall lie down in safety: and I will kill thy root with famine, and he shall slay thy remnant. 31Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou, whole Palestina, art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone in his appointed times. 32What shall one then answer the messengers of the nation? That the LORD hath founded Zion, and the poor of his people shall trust in it.
I like how in the oxygen starved space station in the 100, their way of dealing with criminals was to space them and by the way air locks worked, many cubic meters of air too. Because your accident caused air pressure to drop and lives to be lost, we are going to kill you and waste what little air we now have left.
The reaction statements are far more alarming. Though it's never been proven, not even a hint of it, if one does not accept that being trans is biological and a three year old who can barely make full sentences even understands gender beyond toys or clothes, then you are promoting hate speech and must be shot into the sun. An entire ideology at odds with reality has been thrust onto the public. No one can even fucking define what gender identity is!
Fucking yes. They have a fundamental misunderstanding of what a centrist is, it makes me want to scream and I'm not even a centrist. Centrists don't vote left/right enough to be considered dem/rep, NOT someone who thinks we should kill half of black people or some retard shit like that
We must kill all the bees to free them from the oppressive queen. It's the only way to take back our diminishing male presence in this world. Nevermind that all drones are actually female bees this is important
Who decides what a fascist is? If the person who decides what a fascist is say, considers everything that they disagree with fascist you have a real big problem. And besides, nobody should be killed for their thoughts.
🎶We're gonna stab your daughter at the mall Ahhhh! Ahhhh! Ahhhh! We're going to stab your wife, your son Ooooooooooooh! We're gonna stab you with a butcher knife And then the Police Chief is gonna say "We love our Syrians, we love our Muslims Oh they're so good, oh they're so sweet."🎶
Attention feminists, this is the natural response by men. They are naturally inclined to jump in and help others even at their own expense. If taht tower tipped over those guys at the bottom might have been flung into the air. While a couple women were helping out here, and I'll give them credit for trying, women are statistically and scientifically weaker than men, and often they'd actually just get in the way. So, when you tell men they're all demons and rapists and they should be killed and enslaved, this stuff here you see of men helping others? It's gonna stop happening as they tap out and don't want to deal with your stupid ungrateful asses. The natural result of that will be your society collapsing, as societies only survive as long as the men are there to sacrifice themselves for it.
You mean child sexual predators like polanski? child predators like drewdiepoodle, promintent left wing mod? I think all child molestors should be shot. but hey, you probably think Trump is a convincted child molestor. Because you are psychotic.
The explanation is quite simple, and it is a tried and true method. IN a nutshell: this “cultural revolution” is not meant to convince a significant number of people. On the contrary it is meant to rile people up; to demoralize and conquer. You will find that nothing is new under the sun. Such agitation propaganda was almost exactly similar in Germany in the 30s. It was central in the Zionists' goal of putting Hitler in power. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Institut_für_Sexualwissenschaft The only thing missing is a Weimar-type depression & hyperinflation. Getting there. The US must be destroyed, as Russia and Germany were, as it is a historically industrious and productive nation.
There is a difference between owning slaves and actively fighting a war to preserve slavery. The former can be overlooked, depending on context and the other things they achieved. The latter, I'm afraid, cannot. And literally no one is suggest we don't remember the confederacy. We are saying we don't need statues to remember them, we have history books and historical records. Statues are not how we record history, it is how we glorify history. And no one is saying all historical Remnants of the confederacy should be destroyed. Literally no one is arguing for complete censoring of the history, this is not a real positon anyone holds. You have yet to tell me how removing statues would actually harm anyone's ability to remember or record history. You have not substantied the idea they are needed for people to remember. Seems to me you are just emotionally attached to the statues, and this is an argument based in feelings rather then fact.
All history, literature, and art prior to 1865 must be destroyed and burned because it was the product of a world of slavery. Better make it all art before 1964 because of the civil rights act. You know what? We should start banning lots of art now just so we don't have to keep relighting the bonfires every 10-15 years when we realize how woke we are again.
My absolute best friend in this world is gay, I would kill for that motherfucker (fatherfucker...?) . If expressing yourself includes fetishgear in public and twerking children, public nudity and similar degeneracy then maybe, just maybe I don't want you to express yourself. Also, would be easier to not see the parades if they didn't literally take over fucking city districts and streets being as loud, obnoxious and downright disgusting as they can be. Like what sort of person feels they have to express themselves this way? Now you will try to tell me muh oppression makes them feel like they have to act that way. That reminds me of the Always Sunny in Philadelphia part with Danny De Vito wanting to sing a song about definitely not diddling kids. Acting weird as fuck will make people think you are weird as fuck. That's not the way to acceptance and NO, I do not think we have to accept any freakshow because "fuck you, I am fabulous with a dildo on my head, dancing naked in public".
Yeah, only black dogs are to be murdered, real fucking reasonable From Bukhari Vol. 4, #540 Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar: Allah's Apostle ordered that the dogs should be killed. From Abu Dawud #2839 Abd Allah B. Mughaffal reported the apostle of Allah as saying: Were dogs not a species of creature I should command that they all be killed; but kill every pure black one. .
It's not really 'new' per se, but it's an aspect of female sexuality that we don't often talk about. The whole purpose of shit testing is to prove that you aren't that great - how does one test the strength of a car? We ram it into a wall. The idea isn't technically to destroy the car, but rather to prove what it is and is not capable of. Women do this to men, and do not care at all about how it effects us. The end of a relationship is, to her, simply one last chance to prove what a bitch the guy is, and how easily he can be destroyed. It's the 'end game' of shit testing: she can walk away from a man she broke, happy in the knowledge that he wasn't strong enough to manage her properly. Of course, these days the whole game is so fucking skewed that women wield an utterly bizarre amount of power over the men around them, hence why these situations will often literally destroy a man's life. Women don't see this though: all they understand is their own emotional state, which is telling them 'I beat him so he's not worthy of me'. Makes zero sense when you consider guys are basically playing with a pretty fuckin severe handicap, but try explaining logic to a woman and see where that gets you lol
Democracy does not work anymore if social media bosses can control the way how people think and vote. Facebook owner Mark Zuckerberg and the CEO of Youtube Susan Wojcicki both own lots of drug company's stocks. So of course they want people to vote for somebody like Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren so that there will be universal health care where government pays for all the drugs and trreatments. This means in the future every bottle of drug will cost $1000 or $2000. Then drug company's stock value will skyrocket, and all the social med
