  • Belief in all-knowing, punitive gods aided the growth of human societies, study says

    Los Angeles Times ^ | 2/10/2016 | Amina Khan, cheap labor reporter
    Belief in moral-watching, all-knowing, punitive gods might have helped human societies grow far beyond small, close-knit groups, a new study shows. Researchers who ran an experiment with a total of 591 people in eight different small-scale societies around the world found that people who believed their deity of choice knew about their misdeeds and would punish them were more likely to play fairly in a game where money was on the line. The findings, described in the journal Nature, hint at the integral role that certain religious beliefs may have played in the dramatic expansion of human societies.

He used their language because he knows it. The teachings of Mohammed flowed naturally off of his lips, because he was raised with it. Earlier he announced to the world in his book that the most beautiful sound in the world in the Islamic...

    Oil plunge knocks wind out of shariah compliant funds Sales of the products fell more than 75% last year compared with 2014 London: The fall in the oil price has claimed another victim. Sharia-compliant funds have suffered their worst sales in four years as the price of oil plummets and tensions in the Middle East spook investors. Sales of the products fell more than 75 per cent last year compared with 2014. The slowdown is a big setback for the fledgling $60 billion (Dh220.38 billion) Islamic fund industry, which only began finding its feet in recent years, and raises...

As if this is not bad enough, Malley is in charge to cover the whole kitten caboodle: The Middle East, North Africa and the Gulf region. This appointment happens to be at the same time that Erdogan of Turkey and Qatar had a millstone breakthrough in reviving the Muslim Brotherhood by gaining special provisions for the Islamist organization in Saudi Arabia and the Arab gulf.

    Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz has named former Williamson County GOP chairman Kevin Kookogey, a critic of Sharia law, as his Tennessee chairman. Now, the U.S. senator is drawing fire from the Council on American-Islamic Relations which on Tuesday urged Cruz to drop Kookogey because of what the group called "his longstanding support for anti-Muslim and Islamophobic causes." In announcing Kookogey's appointment, Cruz on Monday called him "a consistently strong voice for conservative principles and an active member of our party for a number of years. "His experience and knowledge of both the landscape in Tennessee and the issues that...

    Michel Houellebecq is a sardonic and iconoclastic French novelist, winner of the prestigious Prix Goncourt, and subject of considerable controversy in Europe these days. He deserves to be controversial here in the United States as well. He calls his most recent novel a work of "political fiction." Titled "Soumission" (in English, "Submission," in Arabic, an accurate translation would be "Islam"), it is set in the near future, in France, "a Western civilization now ending before our very eyes." Coincidence No. 1: "Soumission" was published in France the same week jihadis attacked the offices of Charlie Hebdo, slaughtering as many members...

    Every Obama event somehow has to offend Christians and Jews. Could Obama pull it off for Chanukah? Yes, he could. I already wrote about Susan Talve's bizarre pre-Menorah lighting rant at the White House Chanukah party. Then, not satisfied with having made a disgrace of the Chanukah ceremony, Susan Talve declared, "I stand here to light these lights to say no the darkness of Islamophobia and Homophobia and Transphobia." Talve babbled about insuring "justice for Palestinians" and began gleefully chanting, "Ins'Allah, Ins'Allah". Or "Allah Willing".

    When it comes to selling copy, it’s a good bet that sex trumps multilateral finance. That’s an axiom of human nature. It would be asking too much to expect that the media, or its customers, would be as fascinated by the in-house diplomacy of the International Monetary Fund as all concerned have been by the scandal surrounding the recently handcuffed and dethroned IMF managing director, Dominique Strauss-Kahn. Most eyes are now on the prosecutor’s cratering case, the curious past of the maid who alleged the sexual assault, and the media now analyzing its own coverage of these sordid events. But...

A neighbour alarmed police after spotting flames near the Bergische Synagogue in Gemarker Strae in the eastern district of Barmen at around 2.15 am.

A judge ruled Thursday that Salafist men who were arrested in Wuppertal, Germany, in September 2014 did nothing wrong when they harangued passers-by attempting to enter clubs, casinos and bars. Members of the Islamic group wore vests with "Sharia police" printed across the back and carried "Sharia Controlled Zone" signs, BBC reported Thursday. "These people are perverting the name of our religion," Central Council of Muslims in Germany chairman Ayman A. Mazyek said Sept. 6, 2014, Deutsche Welle reported. "With...

    Islam is similar to Judaism in the importance it gives to legal interpretation. As one Muslim scholar put it, “Shariáh instructs man on how he should eat, receive visitors, buy and sell, slaughter animals, clean himself, sleep, go to the toilet, lead a government, practice justice, pray, and perform other acts of [worship].” Unlike Christianity in the West, where divisive debates often have focused on theological doctrines, in Islam the most important schools of thought reflect differences in jurisprudence. There are four main schools of law for Sunnis (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafií, and Hanbali schools) and one for Shiítes (Ja'fari). The...

    A random survey of 100 representative mosques in the U.S. was conducted to measure the correlation between Sharia adherence and dogma calling for violence against non-believers. Of the 100 mosques surveyed, 51% had texts on site rated as severely advocating violence; 30% had texts rated as moderately advocating violence; and 19% had no violent texts at all. Mosques that presented as Sharia adherent were more likely to feature violence-positive texts on site than were their non-Sharia-adherent counterparts. In 84.5% of the mosques, the imam recommended studying violence-positive texts.

    In a stunning interview, the Maronite patriarch of Antioch, Cardinal Bechara Boutros al-Rahi, has contended that Islam has a clear, two-pronged strategy to take over Europe: religion and procreation. The cardinal said that Muslims look on Christians as weak and believe that since they have no children and barely practice their faith, Islam will easily conquer them. Sadly, he said, Muslims take their faith more seriously than most Christians, and they are gaining ground because of it. "I have often heard from Muslims that their goal is to conquer Europe with two weapons: their faith and their birthrate," al-Rahi said......

    The state of Michigan has a large and growing population of Muslims, and a majority of them have congregated in and around the Detroit area. In fact, the city of Dearborn has such a large Muslim population, that it has become colloquially known as Dearbornistan, and has even begun implementing aspects of Shariah law. Shariah law is a code of laws based on and guided by the Islamic faith. It generally allows for the mistreatment of women and views them as property, allowing a Muslim man to own multiple wives. Although polygamy is illegal in the United States, it is...

But the chief economic adviser at German financial giant Allianz warned that investors should be prepared for a difficult and messy implementation of the terms of the agreement. Euro zone leaders in Brussels agreed Monday on a third rescue for Greece. The deal includes a stipulation that a $55 billion fund be set up using Greek government assets for privatization. The two sides came together for "two negative reasons," because the alternative was worse and nobody wanted...

They stalk, they pounce -- and then they snap the neck of whatever little flying or skittering thing they've just caught. Most of us view this as a good thing. We're all better off with fewer rodents around, and if some pretty little birds get caught up in the killing spree, we can live with that. Biologists, it seems, aren't so sure.

    In 16th-century England, the age of consent was set at 10 years old in an effort to protect young girls from sexual abuse by adult men. In 1875, parliament raised the age of consent to 13; in 1885, it upped it to 16. Now, a leading public health advocate has proposed that the United Kingdom bring the age down again in light of the high proportion of British adolescents who are having sexwith one anotherbefore theyre legally capable of granting consent. Lowering the age of consent to 15 (where it stands in Sweden) or 14 (where its set in Germany...

    Here is what you need to know now as Greece enters a pivotal week in its testy relationship with the Eurozone: 1. Greeces most immediate as in first thing Monday morning source of danger is its banking system. To compensate for accelerated deposit flight, the European Central Bank injected additional emergency funding on Friday to allow the banks to open on Monday. With a lot more needed, the ECB will grow more hesitant to pump in new money unless the Greek government secures an agreement with its European partners and the institutions through which they operate (the European...

    American Thinker ^ | April 06, 2010 | J.R. Dunn
    Over the past year and a half, we've seen much in the way of speculation of what Obama is really up to, what his true agenda might be behind all the soothing and meretricious rhetoric. It was quite clear that "Obama" was a construct, a carefully manufactured image, as all politicians are to one extent or another. But Obama was an extreme example -- all image, most of it having little or no connection with any discernable substance. The gap between what he said and what he would then proceed to do was wide and glaring. This obvious and undeniable...

    Sometimes it feels like the whole world is collapsing around us. Its not. But you can see why it looks like it is. Ireland rejected what every major religion and every major civilization in history has said about marriage. (Marriage is the states protection and encouragement of potential parents. Marriage in Ireland is the states registry of official sexual partners.) In America, public opinion has changed drastically to reject commonsense morality: big majorities say you can kill yourself through physician-assisted suicide, turn your descendants into science projects through embryonic research, and that pretty much any kind of sex with...

    But the important thing from our perspective is its like every other political ideology that competes and has animus towards the west. And we have to see ourselves as in competition with it and needing to defeat it, rather than trying to figure out how we can accommodate it under the auspices of our commitment to religious liberty, because overwhelmingly its not a religious doctrine. The political element of it is overwhelmingly a totalitarian political doctrine. And we shouldnt, just because it has a few religious elements to it, lose sight of the bigger picture.

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has suggested that a key litmus test in evaluating prospective Supreme Court appointees would be their willingness to challenge "the right of billionaires to buy elections." Presumably, a suitable judge would indicate a desire to overturn the Citizens United decision that struck down a ban on political expenditures by corporations and unions ruled to violate the First Amendment protection of free speech a case coincidentally centered on Citizen Uniteds attempt to advertise for and air a film critical of none other than Clinton. In light of recent allegations swirling around the presidential favorite, Clintons...

    Dereliction: For two years on Hillary Clinton's watch, the State Department refused to designate a Nigerian Islamist group as a terrorist organization. This group has murdered thousands as it wages a real war on women. Sometimes Hollywood celebrities get it right, as Jay Leno, Ellen DeGeneres and others did in a protest outside the Beverly Hills Hotel. That property is one of the Dorchester Collection of hotels owned by the Sultan of Brunei, Hassanal Bolkiah, who has announced his country's embrace of Shariah law. The protesters recognize that Shariah law is a brutal criminal code employed by Islamists that prescribes...

    Bombing, beheading, hijacking, mosque sermons these are just a few of the instances where the proclamation Allahu akbar is shouted. But what does it really mean? The mainstream media tells us that the Islamic statement is a pledge of allegiance to the god of the Prophet Muhammad and is an admirable demonstration of faith and piety. Its portrayed as a humble utterance of praise that is too often misused by jihadists during acts of terror. However, the real meaning behind the most controversial term of our time is much more sinister than the liberal left would have you believe....

    Its been our misfortune to have the wrong religion, Hitler complained to his pet architect Albert Speer. Why did it have to be Christianity, with its meekness and flabbiness? Islam was a Mnnerreligiona religion of menand hygienic too. The soldiers of Islam received a warriors heaven, a real earthly paradise with houris and wine flowing. This, Hitler argued, was much more suited to the Germanic temperament than the Jewish filth and priestly twaddle of Christianity. For decades, historians have seen Hitlers Beer Hall Putsch of 1923 as emulating Mussolinis 1922 March on Rome. Not so, says Stefan Ihrig in Atatrk...

    Go to article, please. It is long but at the bottom is the FB page I originally saw, with 'Congratulations to our Holy Martyr.' I trust Pamela Geller - seems solid enough. I am gathering data on this, because I think Islam is the missing link in this crash. This is some of the data I've seen on it. Sorry, too early to post body of thread with minimal computer skills.
