On one hand I was being told that Allah loves us all and wants the best for us but on the other hand I was being told that Allah hates those who disbelieve in him, disobey him, question him, commit haram acts just in order to fit into kuffar (derogatory term for non Muslims) society and there will be a fit punishment for those people.Now as you can imagine this confused me greatly, and I really started to struggle with holding onto my Muslim identity and my English identity. I couldn’t seem to find a way to make them both work together. It felt as if it was either I had to choose Islam or choose the dirty kuffar lifestyle. Because Islam makes it very clear the contempt and hatred it has for the non believers.So I really started to feel like I was living in two worlds.
Note that the judge was a woman. Woman are notoriously lenient on Islamic violence because they are sexually turned on by Muslims in comparison to the weak effete soy-laden "men" of the West who self-emasculated in the face of feminist demands.

Throw religion out the window.
but religion seems to be something that the majority of people feel they need in some form
@WookieMan I see your point, but religion seems to be something that the majority of people feel they need in some form. There may be a good evolutionary explanation for it. Even now, people who believe in a religion tend to have more kids and live longer than those who do not.
At the end of the day though, the principle players in these religions are no different than Sauron.

But, let me know when Jesus, God, Mohammed, etc. are ever verified as real.
Has Aristotle been verified as real? There are a hundred times fewer sources confirming he ever existed than can confirm Jesus existed

Not gonna go down this rabbit hole too much. High school text books change history as recent as WWII, fucking 80 years ago, hell even Vietnam. There's little to no incentive to tell the truth in history as it gets further in the past. People are literally trying to erase history from our own civil war as we speak because white people bad. The modern news media lies endlessly. Yet we're supposed to trust some ancient culture/civilization to have an accurate record from 2,000 years ago? We don't even record current "history" so to speak correctly with the technology we have.
So I have a newfound appreciation for Christianity as a way of inoculating people against infection by Islam. It is far better for us if everyone is Christian than if everyone is Muslim, simply because Islam inspires its believers to insane levels of hatred for outsiders, while Christianity does not.
Wookie, I was looking for a picture encyclopaedia/US History Book for my kid who is now entering kindergarten.All the new ones from DK, etc. have "Islamic Golden Age", "Civil Rights Era", getting equal or more coverage than the entire Roman Empire or Colonial/Revolutionary War Era or the Industrial Age. I don't even need to read the chapters to know they're total BS.Gonna hit up Ebay for Books written before the mid 90s. I'm also looking out for History/Science/etc. Comics, again before 1995-2000, gonna start reviewing them for other parents sometime this summer.
I'd even argue that if it weren't for Persia, there would have never been a renaissance because Caliphates were not into advancing knowledge. They stole from the lands they'd conquered and then later pretended that it was their own wisdom/knowledge. Ppl like Rumi and Avicenna were children of ancient Persia, not Arabs.

This seems like a great idea: ranking kids books by their propaganda content.
I was just talking to an Iranian guy who said exactly that. The Arabs copied Greek and Persian texts into Arabic, but had and still have very few intellectuals of their own.Islam strongly discourages the independent thought necessary for science.

Also, has anyone noticed that there's practically no talk about the Persian Empire between Alexander the Great's invasions (328 BC) and the Islamic Invasions (651 AD)? That stretch of time exceeds the Spanish, Dutch, and British Empires of today, a.k.a all of the modern era. Alexander did not destroy Persian culture. A lot of brain dead ppl look at Alexander as if it satisfied some biblical prophecy of falling societies but it actually didn't.
My youngest (boy) stumbled on "Simple History" cartoon videos on YouTube and is now obsessed with history. The videos are typically 3-5 minutes and just focus on individual events "Battle of the Bulge", "Japanese POW camps", "Largest tanks" and appear to be pretty straightforward without obvious Leftist bias.Prager University videos are a nice corrective too.
The "Cartoon History of the Universe" books by Larry Gonick are very good too, with only a tiny amount of PC spin:
This is why we need to study real history and not simply the biblical western blurp which is that Rome
The incredible taxation, the near bankruptcy, and the military weakness of both empires allowed Muhammed and his successors to conquer the Levant and beyond.
Muhammed would be yet another little known desert bandit, a footnote in the Chronicles of either Empire.
BTW, you are not a proponent of Zoroastrianism are you?
Mohammed's armies were accepted and strengthened
Both Islam and Genghis's army worked the same way.
The little I've read says that Mohammed's armies were accepted and strengthened by a good amount of men everywhere they went because the banks were putting the hurt on everybody with their debt inflation similar to nowadays.
Islam didn't give a hoot about those Christian issues because once in power, it was extracting money and people from Christians anyway, via the jizya and via converts, or legal kidnapping of children to serve in the army or in the sultan's harem.
They became the Mughals
their capture of Yazidis as sex slaves
