Your lack of understanding is amazing
The proved Model of God, can not be seen (in this world by our eyes)

Yet Afadly has "prooved" his god many times. Apparently, you really can have it both ways.

Stupid troll.

We're all waiting anxiously.
Proving Allah
All you've proven is that your parents did an excellent job of brainwashing you.  The only real proof of  allah or any deity would be for that deity to present itself in person to the whole world.   Anything other than this is just the over-active imagination of people who wish it existed.   Afadly...do yourself a favor and get over this fantasy before you're tempted to do something that will get you into islamic heaven with those 72 virgins that you are promised.
Your lack of understanding is amazing
The proved Model of God, can not be seen (in this world by our eyes)

The only refutation of my proof is to bring another logical model (of another God or no God), other than that it is proved
It is only proved if there is evidence for its proof.  You've shown no evidence.   There is more evidence that Mickey Mouse exists.  I can see him on my TV set.  I can't see your phony allah or any other phony deity.  Face it Afadly, you're living in a fantasy world.

I re-read your "proove." It consists of a paradox and a self-contradiction, two conditions which you claim render any argument false.

(By the way, genius, the way you used it above, "stupid" is an adjective. It does not take a definite article. No one can be "the stupid." If you're going to impugn someone's intelligence, you need to use correct grammar.)

Move over, John Edward, there's a new candidate for Biggest Douche in the Universe.

AFadly - you said that Allah is genderless.  Why then is Allah referred to as "he"?  Is the pronoun that refers to Allah in Arabic also the same as the masculine pronoun?

I always thought that the concept of god referred to she, he, or it (s/h/it for short).

Then you don't actually believe it. You are under the impression that your mathematical "prooves" actually indicate something about the truth. If that were so, you would not need to say you "believe": you would know. By your perverse standards, you would say that you "believe" 2x2=4 and that you "have faith" that the acceleration of gravity is approximately 9.8 m/s2. This renders words like "believe" and "faith" completely meaningless. (To say nothing of your understanding of "100%.")

But underneath your pathetic false bravado, you know that your "prooves" are chop-logic, so you need to declare that you "believe" them. You can only believe something for which the evidence is incomplete, or in your case, nonexistent.

This is just a language issue, we refer to him as he, because there is no word in language to refer to sexless deities

Even in English, read any old book that refer to human it is using "He"
Now they invented the term "He/She"

Did God create Adam with a penis before he even thought to create Eve?

To the OP, The big Bang is just a theory, a provisional at that just like the origins of life. god was an excuse that the ancients came up with to explain away things that they were to incompetent to figure out for them selves.

hell the bible even talks about a ancient flying thing, is god just an alien.  ;)

God is male.

The aura that surrounds Him is the Shekinah.  It is female.  It has presence and influence but no thought thus it is not a person.  There is one ceremony devoted to it where the men form their hands into the Hebrew letter shin which looks like a Latin W.

I'm speaking here of some mystical Judaism.   Like the church which Leonard Nimoy attended as a boy.

Yeah, that's right, "Live Long and Prosper."

Ya'll can quote me on that. Man, I'm one eloquent motherfucker, ain't I?


Edit: By the way... This topic is like 3 years old. So by posting in it, we're kinda engaging in some softcore necrophelia. Just wanted to point that out 'cos at first I thought it was only a few months deceased. Babdah, where did you even FIND this thing???

Well, what's done is done. But damn. Eloquent, AND I'm all up in some dead s**t? Bring me home to mom, that's 2/3rds of a trifecta baby.  8)

Babdah:  You posted exactly the same thing in another thread.  Except this one was completely a necro, because the most recent post was more than three years ago.  And it doesn't even make sense in context with this thread.

Yes, i know, I got confused because i clicked the link in this:


First off, how do you KNOW that God is a HE. To me, that is complete B.S.!! You have been brainwashed into believing that someone who probably doesn't even exist is a he.


*YAWN*

We covered this elsewhere.<<<<<<Clicky<<<<<<

God is male, he has a penis and because he's God, his penis is huge. This is where the "Big Bang" comes from.

*YAWN*

it was from the big bang was bs thread, i did not mean to.

Of course god is a male. Why do you think Jesus was a man? And why was Adam created first? If you think about it, its actually quite obvious.

Women can have sons too. Does it matter that Adam was created first? If God was a man and created Jesus as a man and Adam before eve, that does not mean God is a man too. If men made men instead of women as the sons/daughters of him/herself, for the wrong reasons, it could be a bit sexist.

Could you elaborate a bit, i.e. how has this been observed?

We all know that Afadly is not a native speaker of English. 

He doesn't know Arabic, either.

Arabic, like French or Hebrew, has only 2 genders: Masculine and Feminine.  There is no way to refer to God as "it" in Arabic.

Does this mean God is both genders? Like a transvestite? (if you are implying that God is the Arabic language).

That would make God a hermaphrodite. Odd then, that there's no mention of hermaphrodites in the Bible!
Personally, I suspect God is gay, given His scorn for women, doting on his mother, and preference for male company. All those naked cherubs fluttering about also raise concerns about paedophilia....
