if Malaysians had adopted the sensible attitudes of B.Better or Umme Ammara,
they would have chosen the Singaporean approach of
giving all religions, all races completely equal rights,
and a level plain field for competition.

Had that happened, Malaysia and Singapore, as one country, they could have been an economic power that rivals Japan. However, the country had not shown a track record of pragmatism, let alone sensibility.

Knowing how hard it is to govern the real world, it always bothers me to see precious resources being wasted on religious disputes. The only evidence I have seen that mysticism is real has been simple testimony, the bulk of which comes from a minimum of hundreds of years before standards of evidence were even a rigorous concept. Thanks to people like Kuhn, Popper, Carnap and others we now have good standards by which to judge the ‘reasonableness’ and utility of theories, both new and old, including that of mysticism.

The Malaysian King and Parliament would serve the country’s citizens well by amending their constitution to make Malaysia a secular country whose government maintains disinterest in religious affairs. Religions after all are predicated upon mysticism, and, due to the irrationality of mysticism a rational parliamentary debate about mystical concerns, (such as which mystical guidebook should be printed in what language), is simply impossible.

Malaysia’s constitution invites this kind of problem. It establishes “freedom of religion” while declaring Malaysia an Islamic state. Both history and the daily news show that eventually people get hurt when this degree of contradiction exists at this level.

To what extent are you influenced by Christianity? “As a child I received
instruction both in the Bible and in the Talmud. I am a Jew, but I am enthralled by the luminous figure of the Nazarene.”

You accept the historical existence of Jesus? “Unquestionably! No one can
read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus. His personality
pulsates in every word. No myth is filled with such life!”

Einstein in his 50s FYI!

Check out: Chip Ingrams “Why I believe” out of Atlanta (Living on the Edge)!! Very intellectually honest, funny and free to download through 4/3/11!! 3-4 hours of jaw dropping evidence for Christianity!! Just the facts-check it out, best I’ve heard in a lifetime of search!

By: Umme_Ammara Thu, 31 Mar 2011 22:08:49 +0000 Islam teaches respect of all religious leaders, scriptures and places of worship. Bible is a holy book and should be treated with great reverence.

It is against the teaching of Islam to persecute anyone for holding beliefs other than Islam.

It is unfortunate that the name of Islam is used to make political gains!
