Islamic Books & Stuff - A Humble Collection Of Texts

A Collection Of Islamic Books & Stuff (Of Interest To Me) Collected Over The Years.
As a matter of interest I was born in a Sunni Muslim home & Reverted to Twelver Shi'ite Islam, if you are interested in learning about why that is, the answers will be found in the books provided.
Also, followers of the Other Abarahmic Traditions Will Find Shi'ite Islam Highly Interesting To Study; it seems to have all the answers to fill the holes in the greatest story ever told. All the missing links that separate the three faiths; Judaism, Christianity & Islam are a perfect contiguous tradition once seen through the Twelver Shi'ite interpretation Of Islam. It explains the WHOLE story.
As an interesting illustration of this:
Judaism: "kesafim," the tenth (10%) levy is part of jewish law, it's equivalent almost to the letter is the "khums," The blood-line of significance in relation to the "kesafim" was 'The Levites' and particularly the 'Aaronites' who were the keepers of the temple, in Islam the relationship of "khums" to bloodline is seen with the 'Hashimites' (Banu Hashem) and particularly the 'Sayyid' line who were the keepers of The Grand Mosque. The Moses & Aaron relationship is mirrored as Edward Gibbon put it (speaking about one of Muhammad's companions) : "From the first hour of his mission to the last rites of his funeral, the apostle was never forsaken by a generous friend, whom he delighted to name his brother, his vicegerent, and the faithful Aaron of a second Moses."
Christianity: As many may know Islam in general already agrees with the concept of the virgin birth, honouring the sanctity and holiness of Mary, the miracles of Jesus, the ascension and the return/ second coming. But only Shi'ite Islam gives attention also to the personages of his disciples' - the message of Jesus (Peace Be On Him/ Alev Shalom/ Alay Salaam) from the Islamic viewpoint. For example Shi'ite texts like that of the classical scholar At-Tawusi can be seen to run parallel with the recently discovered 'Gospel Of Judas,'it observes that Jesus asks his disciples if they will accept a special mission bearing many burdens, only one of his disciples accepts... ...other disciples that are named significantly are Shamoon As-Safa (Simon Peter) and some in Arabic who have not yet been identified.
Not nearly enough research has been done to explore what Shi'ite texts speak about in the context of Abrahamic Tradition. A number Of Classical Shi'ite Texts are not included, some are corrupted, lost and unavailable, this is but a humble collection and is dedicated but not exclusively to the tenets, theosophy, folklore and history of Shi'ite Islam both independantly and in contrast to it's sister sect but also through the societal, poltical and cultural traditons of past and modern epochs. A collection of other interesting topics; poetry, philosophy, politics, health, conspiracy, spirituality, grammar, anecdotes etc. is natural due to Islam being seen as a complete and encompassing way of life.
Peace To All.
all the abrahamic religions are SHIT. and all are based on bullshit lies. they've collectively destroyed progress and fucked up the world in the process.

fuck abraham. fuck judaism. fuck christianity. and fuck islam.

Firstly, your reply is so indicative of progress right? Bwaha! Rolling eyes.
Secondly, you only see what your stereo-typical anti-religion blinkers-mindset wants you to see, you think of inquisition period and think all religion is an obstacle to progress.
Thirdly, secular sorts have also cause equal horrors in this world look at Stalin and Mao. So stop blaming religion, idiots come in all varieties religious and a-religious.
Fourthly, a fair depiction of Islam would note that the Islamic civilization was responsible for the many fruits of progress the world enjoys today...
...look at the following list of religious scholars:
Jun 09 2011, 13:08 UTC
I basically agree that religions are shit. Collectively they've caused so much harm and death it's scary to think about it.
But I also think the monster religions have become is more down to the religious leaders than the texts themselves (although there is plenty of shit in them too). In any case, it can be interesting to read about these things, if only to learn more about their background to be able to more intelligently criticise them.
The idea about a God/Creator/etc is obviously complete BS, but that doesn't mean there isn't something valuable in the texts. They are sort of historical accounts, at least some of it, and say something about morals. To use that as a blueprint for today is stupid, but it can still be interesting to read about it.
I'd prefer to have the list of books in the torrent instead of a blanket zip though. Unless it boosts the size 5 times or something I suppose.

Judaism is complete made up bullshit...they are truly intelligent and cunning people, i admit. They created a mythology (CREATED!) through which all other people would learn about them...said all things are subjugated to humans (BULLSHIT) and they are the chosen people of some make believe anthropomorphic character (BULLSHIT) and therefore they can do/take/kill/terrorize anyone they want cause they are "the people of God" (BULLSHIT). Zionists picked up on this ploy and took it to the next level. Only they did things in reverse, writing "The Protocols of Zion" releasing it anonymously into the realm of conspiracy (PLAUSIBLE DENIABIILITY) and claim their religious counterparts wrote it in spite of them.
Jun 09 2011, 15:34 UTC
Anyone who has done any research on the history of christianity whatsoever would know that a) there is not one single shred of evidence that Jesus ever existed...although the fact he is discussed in Hindu texts, leads me to believe he may have very well existed and is possibly buried in what is now Pakistan. But the truth of the matter is that we arent sure.
b) the Bible is a bastardized form of Christianity, was compiled by Romans at the Council of Nycea to "bring people together under one religion" so that they can be "ruled easier". The council bent to the whims of the loudest asshole (just like gov's bend to christian pussies who bitch and complain and call evil everything that is COOL) and as such, the Bible was compiled through the lens of the most radical fundamentalist (hence why Gnostic Christianity (TRUE christianity!!!) was deemed heretical).
c) the Crusades were undertaken under complete fraudulent circumstances. The crusaders would have given up multiple times if Priest assholes didnt fake some stupid relic and claim some connection to Jesus or God...and turn around and say "this is a sign we must go on..." ....people are uncritical idiots.
d) Example: Deuteronomy, of which was claimed to be written by Moses, suddenly appeared in some the basement of some idiots Castle during a period in which the people were revolting against the ruling class. luckily for them Deuteronomy suddenly manifested itself and gave them "divine laws" (not human ones that could be revolted against...) which extremely harsh punishments, that could be used to subjugate the people and crush the revolt....how convenient.
e) christian fundamentalists *vomit* ..enough said.
Jun 09 2011, 15:44 UTC
Every single practicing Muslim i've ever met lacks critical thinking skills, is incredibly religiously indocrinated and is just straight up IGNORANT. (and i used live with 6 saudis)...though there are muslim scholars who's opinions and views i absolutely respect...just i've never met any of them. the shit many believe, as filtered through a religious lens, is absurd. the fact that many right leaning muslims believe that you can only talk to "infidels" when you are trying to teach them about islam or convert them, is fucking retarded.
i also find it ridiculous that muslims pretty much totally ignore the story of Muhammed's life prior to entering the cave and receiving a "divine message from God". ie. that he was a well-traveled trader, whose clan (family) died out leaving him with no form of protection if he were ever to enter into a conflictual circumstance. the fact the muslims believe that he was illiterate is fucking beyond belief....the guy was exposed to a large diversity of religions and was a respected businessman. the fact that he married an older woman that was his boss and proposed to HIM....and yet we see the absolute subjugation of women to patriarchal assholes, both sunni's and shi'ites. i dont doubt the dude went and meditated in a cave, but everything he wrote down came from within him, not from some make believe anthropomorphic character called God.
Jun 09 2011, 15:55 UTC
all 3 groups of fucked up assholes used their "divine connection" to kill justify the killing of their ideological enemies, the various pagan groups and each other.
both dichotomies of the great conflict we see in the world today are have developed as consequences of abrahamic religion: capitalism and islamism. their conflicts continually fucking up the world.
zionists trying to subjugate all foreign nations to their whims.
and both christians and zionist jews working together to make the "apocalypse" a self-fulfilling prophecy.. goes back to what i said in the first part about judaism, you make a claim, claim its of divine origin and then seek to establish it in the real world based on this "mythological" justification.
zionist israel already has plans to knock down the al aqsa mosque and dome of the rock to build "the temple of solomon" which NEVER EXISTED (was a concept of the mind, not a real thing) [the wailing wall IS NOT PART OF THE TEMPLE OF SOLOMON, never was, never will be even if you make up fake ass stories and claim it is so]. this is also being promoted by western christian fundamentalists who cant wait for the apocalypse cause they believe they will ascend to the clouds and watch the rest of us burn in apocalyptic hellfire of the war of heaven and hell on earth.....jokes. this is the shit driving political foreign policy across the globe?! SWEET JESUS!!! (pun intended). if they do knock down al aqsa and the DOTR that is going to piss off every mulsim idiot and they are going to revolt hardcore....the arab nations will attack Israel and Israel will nuke em all. world war 3...or 4 depending on how ya look at it...the apocalypse result of a self-fulfilled prophecy.
prophecy is for assholes, im not opposed to studying religious texts, can be a very liberating thing to study, as long as you arent going in indoctrinated. but to take it as the "word of some make believe character" is ridiculous.
Jun 09 2011, 16:06 UTC
i dont doubt there were great muslim scientists, astronomers, mathematicians, architects, artists, poets, and storytellers.
i just dont believe in their religion.
Jun 09 2011, 16:08 UTC
forgot to add to my islam rant that, what Mohammed did is create a mythology of which he could rally a clan around, as he had lost everyone- his family, his extended family (uncle)- that provided him with a clan connection.
all abrahamic religions are political tools of indoctrination and subjugation. hence why they suck.
Jun 09 2011, 16:13 UTC
im actually not opposed to the concept of God. but for me, the concept of God is best described as "the symbiosis of the universe", it's not a person or thing that can direct you, nor dictate divine knowledge through you. nor chose you over others, nor make you "right".
Jun 09 2011, 16:23 UTC
spirituality should be an introspective journey, not externalized, this is when things become dangerous. for the record, i think there are many beneficial elements (practices) outlined in religious texts that foster introspection and thus are quite beneficial for the individual and, in turn, society in general....just can't get caught up in the other made up crap that is used as "filler".
Jun 09 2011, 16:27 UTC
the political elements of the texts were meant for millenia ago...yet we still have large groups of people clinging to them for dear life....that's not what i call progress.
Jun 09 2011, 16:30 UTC
ill end my multi-post rants with a quote from the brilliant pianist/comedian Tom Lehrer, "a friend of mine once said: "Predict the worst, and you'll always be hailed a Prophet.""
Jun 09 2011, 16:36 UTC
I'm not going to remove the torrent because I'd have to delete your posts along with it. However, usually anything dealing with he invisible man in an uncritical way will get the boot.
Jun 09 2011, 17:49 UTC
Boot it if you like, Islam doesn't teach of an invisible man, but a transcendent deity.
frankly I'd like to see anyone produce an alternative theory that's worth anything, all we have today is a bunch of theories purported to be truths:
- The big-bang theory, not yet established fact . Yes we can say that the universe is expanding but we cannot prove conclusively that it originated from a single-cell organism or an single atom (of what structure?) then there is the question of how the electrons and protons came together to form an atom and then where did these smaller bodies come from?
- Primordial Broth/ Soup Theory? ...no comment.
(Doesn't Hindu'ism have a simmilar thing called 'Brahman'? Lol!)
- The theory of large bodies in the universe bending the fabric of space or time by their sheer presence in the known galaxy or universe.
Need I say more?
- Darwin's theory of evolution, there remains up to this day no credible fossil which has been discovered in any transition phase between one species to another, take for example the star-fish which evolved into a fish. Surely if this process takes millions of years then we should by effect have some reminiscence physically to substantiate this alleged fact? There is no such evidence.
- Black-hole theory, which is presented to us time and time again by science channels, National Geographic, Discovery etc. But no one has actually ever seen a black-hole physically! So if you can believe in many things you've never
seen, then leave us to believe in our so-called theory that an Omniscient Being beyond the limitations of the realms of matter and anti-matter, who never had an innitial-point or beginning, nor will He ever end (kind of like the theory of
Conservation of Energy) created this universe.
Does our point of view now really sound as far-fetched as it is made to seem?
Jun 09 2011, 19:49 UTC
Compare someone who believes in an all-power being that always was and created everything to a guy who belives that from amoebas came star-fish -> whales -> snakes -> skinks -> rats etc. etc. -> primates -> homo-erectus -> homo-spaiens. or whatever.
Bwahaha! I'll take some of what he's smoking!
I'm sorry but I have to say atheism is crap as it stands today.
Jun 09 2011, 19:59 UTC
The fact is that science as we have today originated from believing people like those I mentioned not the godless.
Jun 09 2011, 20:04 UTC
"Transcendent Deity" is just fancy latin and greek for "invisble man".
I'm not even commenting on the rest. The invisible man theory originated during humanity's childhood. Anybody who believes in progress should have moved on by now.
Jun 09 2011, 21:08 UTC
i don't need to believe in bullshit to be a decent responsible person.
not to mention most religious zealots pick and choose what elements they want to follow.
for instance, christians often forget that: GOD HATES FIGS!!! (well, Jesus at least...)
"...when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry: And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet. And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it."
because they werent ready and ripe when he wanted them, he deems them "abominations" and likens them to his mortal enemies...
"Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will send upon them the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, and will make them like vile figs, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil."
little irrationally vindictive for a supposed messiah/prophet, don't ya think?
not to mention all finless, scaleless water dwelling creatures are "abominations" (on par with Gays lmao)
i wonder if they have one but not the other, if they are still abominations? like whales, dolphins and sea snakes... perhaps Shi'ite mythology fills in those "gaps" too...lmao
Jun 09 2011, 21:12 UTC
im not an athiest...im a pantheist....for the record.
goatboy 4 life.

There are piles of files in the torrent, but after the "science is crap" babble above I'm not exactly convinced any of this material is worth reading.
Religion is more destructive than nuclear weapons, and has caused more harm to human societies. Frankly, it takes an incredibly gullible person to believe in that shit, or to be indoctrinated from youth. Indoctrinated is a harsh word and sounds like something from North Korea, but it is in effect what is often happening.
Read the God Delusion or something like that instead. At least that will give you something to think about. And I mean "you" in a neutral way here, not as a personal attack.
Hopefully one day we will rid ourselves of pathetic believes such as religion. Most kids stop believing in Santa Claus when they start thinking for themselves. But for some odd reason millions of people believe in that absurdity of some man creating every bloody thing on this planet just a couple of thousand years ago.
To paraphrase Bill Hicks, if man and dinosaurs lived together, there would probably be something about it in the fucking Bible!
Jun 09 2011, 21:43 UTC
Martin you're so funny mate, read a book sometime. Maybe it will enable you to construct a reply.
No one says "science is crap" but then that's the hallmark of someone clutching at straws or a strawman tactic in this case, everything I said was promoting science but opposed to wild psuedo-scientific conspiracy theories, like the primordial soup theory.
I've read the God Delusion and watch many of Dawkin's videos on youtube, it's funny how your kind hate religious people but yet celebrate that fellow as if he were some messiah of your cause, only missing the people waving olive branches.
Pathetic really. I'll tell you an interesting book to read, it's called "Kluge" it's more interesting then the crap your "prophet" spits out.
By the way I know the quote about Bill Hicks with the dinosaurs "put there to test our faith," I love his stuff and George Carlin too with his remarks about religions being used as money-making industries. They were both right, but that's no fault of the religions. Even atheism is an industry look at Thinkatheist :http://www.thinkatheist.com/opensocial/ningapps/show?appUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fos.ning.com%2Fningapps%2Fpaypal%2Fgadget.xml%3Fning-app-status%3Dnetwork&owner=2x2iq8g3od0j0
So far your replies are little worth reading because they are informative and quote links and stuff, I'll check it out. As for Pantheism like Panentheism, I don't think they are evil philos just misguided. Within pantheism one can become a victim of limiting forces to our own limited plain of existence and that is the philosophical dilemma a hidden anthropomorphism if you will, it makes our own existence the epicentre and litmus test for perfection, this eliminates the possibility that perhaps there are dimensions out there that are beyond matter and anti-matter and perhaps not confined to time and space, maybe superior forms could exist in such a place, but then that's also just theory.
Most of the stereotypical replies have come from judeo-christian-centricism, thus they have failed to pose much in the way of rebuttal. Muslims have no issues with believing that perhaps there may have been dinosaurs or an old-earth theory for that matter - so long as one can prove it, so far not much success there.
Jun 09 2011, 22:56 UTC
Rather funny to see a guy preaching religion saying people who are critical of it are clutching at straws.
As to prophets, I don't have any. You clearly have plenty.
Just because we are "infidels" does not mean we are incapable of thought. Generally the situation is quite the opposite. We don't believe in religion BECAUSE we have thought about it. Give it a try. You might like it.
Jun 09 2011, 23:03 UTC
I've got no issues with believing the prophet made his way from Mecca to Jerusalem on the back of a flying horse -- so long as one can prove it. So far not much success there.
Jun 09 2011, 23:06 UTC
Your reply = Super Weak. Laughable.
You are not "people" just one person,
with a weak reply.
Jun 09 2011, 23:07 UTC
"I've got no issues with believing the prophet made his way from Mecca to Jerusalem on the back of a flying horse -- so long as one can prove it. So far not much success there."
Now thats a reply, I must admit, I'll give you.
Sorry Martin, my earlier reply was to Pangaea.
As to you:
Some Shi'a Muslims dispute that he (PBUH) went to Jerusalem.
But we say it is possible, because it is within our deity's power to do such a thing, being all-powerful and all. But that's our theory, your have evolution with the single-cell organisms becoming fish, then monkeys, then people and we have ours.
You show me yours, I'll show you mine.
Jun 09 2011, 23:15 UTC
Well, if you call yourself a Muslim, you can't sit on the fence on whether Muhammad did this or that. Calling your faith a theory is both an incorrect use of the term and (I'm guessing) a sacrilege.
Theories in the real sense use logic and evidence to explain phenomena. They are upheld as long as there are no internal contradictions and as long they explain all or most of the data. If they don't, they are discarded and replaced by new theories.
Religions don't work that way. Muslims (or any other believers) don't believe certain claims only as long as there's no evidence to the contrary. They believe in them, period. No evidence, no logic, the prophet said it and that's that..
Jun 09 2011, 23:29 UTC
"Calling your faith a theory is both an incorrect use of the term and (I'm guessing) a sacrilege."
Well, I am using an a-religious lens, not mine.
Stating my beliefs and convictions
won't contribute to this discussion.
And I am not comfortable with this anyway.
Now you want to give me a lesson in sacrilege?
"Theories in the real sense use logic and evidence to explain phenomena. They are upheld as long as there are no internal contradictions and as long they explain all or most of the data. If they don't, they are discarded and replaced by new theories."
As I said, you show me yours and I'll show you mine.
I haven't seen the logic and evidence of which you speak yet.
"Religions don't work that way. Muslims (or any other believers) don't believe certain claims only as long as there's no evidence to the contrary. They believe in them, period. No evidence, no logic, the prophet said it and that's that.."
Same can be said about atheists, they find a theory that is completely baseless like evolution/ primordial soup and expound on it. True scientists wouldn't do that unless they can confirm the first premise. Continuing without proof is just like intellectual masturbation (for self-gratitude), one might as well start out with a theory that once potatoes were completely round and carry-on from there. Oh wait, that sounds like evolution! Haha
That is after all the difference between faith and today's bastardisation of the scientific-method, the one at least admits that it's his own convictions that drive him, the other is in denial that his theories are baseless in offering an alternative point of view.
Jun 09 2011, 23:55 UTC
This is pointless to follow any more.
I'm gonna try the link in the mail that cancels future updates. Discussing science, facts and religion with people who don't even believe in evolution is beyond pointless.

Jun 10 2011, 00:30 UTC
"The fact is that science as we have today originated from believing people like those I mentioned not the godless."
well, i do think that science came out of a search for an understanding of "God", but i see modern science more as alchemy without the element of spirituality. hence why im a Luddite as well as a Pantheist....im opposed to the corporate technocracy and feel that many things we have "discovered" are actually of negative value and should be "smashed", to use the oldschool luddite term. a perfect example being GMOS (seems there are alot of fundamentalist christians working in genetic modification realm, something which i see as "fucking with God" and contradictory to their own beliefs..if you want to put it through that lens) and the Pharmaceutical industry..just because something is discovered and can be marketed and sold for profit in capitalist societies like we have now, does not necessarily mean it is a good thing. so, in that sense, i too am skeptical of some realms of science (of which are often, themselves, based on an almost "religious-like" speculation and faith..faith in the sense that just because you can figure it out that it automatically has positive value... a faith in rationality [we ARE NOT solely rational beings]).
This is a direct result of the promotion of Capitalism (which is derived from the idea that everything on earth is in a state of subjugation to us humans) by the psycopaths (see jon ronson's new book, "the psychopath test" or the documentary "the corporation") that have come to dominate the world.
but what the hell man, anybody with any observational abilities whatsoever can see that, without a doubt, evolution is a fact. i don't see how you can negate evolution without sounding like/being a complete idiot. even if you do believe in creationism (of which there is no evidence whatsoever, and there never will be) ...i don't feel that it is in conflict with a belief in evolution.
personally, im not opposed to the "panspermia" theory, that low level lifeforms are actually alien species that got to earth via asteroids, or perhaps extraterrestrial intervention (something, i found humourous is when Ben Stein, in his doc on creationism, gets Richard Dawkins to admit its possible ET's intervened or were the origin of life on earth). im not an adherent to such a belief, but ill admit i do find it intriguing.
i do believe in the existence of UFO's though (not saying they are definitely extraterrestrials...i think it's likely they are actually multiple phenomenon...jacque vallee's theory, secret gov projects and in some cases ETs), but it's an evidence, not faith based belief. there is an overwhelming amount of evidence that there is definitely something going on that we have yet to explain/understand, if you know where to look.
but at the same time im not at all a richard dawkins fan. (see Adam Curtis "All Watched Over Machines of Loving Grace" Episode 3 post/documentary as for why). as far as im concerned hes an extremist at the other end of the spectrum, and many of his ideas have been used in just as destructive ways as religious ideas have. dawkins looks at us like machines, i dont think we are "just machines"...i think to hold such a belief requires a certain amount of faith not too different than a religous faith (in that to hold such a belief you must negate so many observable phenomenon, like Ghosts, for instance...i've personally had 2 ghost experiences, 1 of which ive experienced multiple times with other people). Science has a tendency to NEVER believe in people's experiences (i admit that memory/recollection is imperfect and can be manipulated..but sometimes, especially when multiple people experience the same thing, you've just gotta listen...theres no other way to come to an understanding about such subjects with our current technological prowess), and i personally feel this is holding us back.
but i think, if you understood it, you would quite like Pantheism. im definitely a dualist, in that we have a physical and spiritual element. Pantheism doesnt negate the existence of "other realms"...our state of "reality" is limited by human physiology...ie. that we can only see a certain portion of the light spectrum, for instance. i do feel there are other realms in which "entities" that we cannot see do dwell (even if they are just remote viewers cruisin all over the place during their outer body experiences lol). [if you think remote viewers are "bullshit", you are so wrong...look at Michael Persinger's lecture about studying ingo swann, then doing tests with regular uni students.]
because our "externalized" faith-in-rationality (and yes, the extremely rational who believe that we have an explanation for everything, are NO different than the extremely religious) science based society auto-negates the existence of such things without warrant is THE VERY REASON WHY people fall into traps of religious indoctrination.
i, personally believe, that all the externalized technologies we have created are things we could have achieved with our own human potential. computers an attempt to externalize our brains, cinema an externalization of consciousness, the internet like "telepathy" or an ability similar to what remote viewers possess (whatever you want to call it).
i adhere to the belief that "life is about the journey, not the destination". it's about living and exploring your own consciousness introspectively, whether it be in "reality" or "altered states" (which enable us to experience the world from a different level of consciousness). thus why i look at hallucinogens as "God's technology" that enable us to explore such realms. i do think certain elements of SOME religious texts do have value when looking at them from this perspective (ie as spiritual sciences)..but the Abrahamic religions are responsible for the negation of such ideas, which is why i passionately hate them.
for the record, im smoking pot and eating/smoking/drinking hallucinogens...i recommend you try it out
you may just realize that everything is one, and connected. the earth and entire universe are in a state of symbiosis...though here on earth, we've led to conditions which are no longer ideal for humanity to flourish, and that i find saddening and disappointing. and it's all abraham's fault, that motherfucker!!!
Jun 10 2011, 02:15 UTC
should say humanity and all the other earthly beings** (in the second to last sentence)
Jun 10 2011, 02:28 UTC
if you dont think "other realms" exist, i urge you all to look at the story of John Dee (Queen Elizabeth's Magician) who worked with a man named...shit...stephen something i believe, a medium. together the men experienced some intensely insane shit!!! normally i wouldnt believe them, but one of the "entities" that was being channeled through the medium dictated an a completely unknown and 100% functional language, complete with alphabet, words, grammar, syntax.
modern science would be having nothing of it. but the language exists. and we've just gone off track because of our externalization and rationalization of everything, and thus, science fails to offer an explanation...and like i said above, examples like this are the very reason why people fall back into the traps of religion, because they are searching for an explanation, and often times, religion is the only realm offering up an answer.
Jun 10 2011, 02:44 UTC
we'd all be better off if we could all just admit that we just simply...don't always have an explanation and can't always understand things through rational discourse. We are both rational and irrational beings at the same time...it's just our nature as humans, can't negate it.
Jun 10 2011, 02:49 UTC
one thing is for certain, completely "rational" people, who only ever experience the world from ONE state of consciousness...are much easier to manipulate, subjugate and control.
this is why most countries continue to fund failing drug wars.
Jun 10 2011, 06:00 UTC
any anarchist who thinks theism is incompatible with anarchism does not know the history of anarchism nor of religious anarchists in the past and today.
Jun 10 2011, 16:12 UTC
was that comment directed at me redjade?
i dont recall mentioning or talking about anarchism at all in this thread...perhaps you could quote the part that you are referring to.
i did mention that i'm a "pantheist", which is just a different, more abstract, conception of what "God" "is".
anyways, i realize there are religious anarchists, especially Jews...but at the same time...a belief in God isn't required to be an Anarchist.
Jun 10 2011, 16:41 UTC

I told you I wanna see some proof for evolution, bloody evolution slaves can't you understand that?
Show me some fossils that are in between one known species (in the modern day) and another. Alleged billions of years in which to record into the rocks, ice and earth - to extract their proof from and they got jack!
" Piltdown Man " Forgery is a great example of this:
“None of the experts who have scrutinized the specimens and the gravel pit and its surroundings has doubted the genuineness of the discovery.”
— William Gregory, in Natural History reporting on the Piltdown Man fossils

I know a couple of anarchists who believe in bigfoot for that matter. Takes all kinds..
Seriously though, I'd like to see some references for the claim that "especially jewish anarchists" were those who were or are religious. From what I know, back in the days of Rudolf Rocker, those people were fervently opposed to Religion, showing up for a brawl at the synagogues every friday.

I am gonna be resharing some cool political torrents as well very soon, just so you can all rest assured that I am not merely here to peddle my own personal stuff.
So yes, I do understand the purpose of this tracker.

@Martin, was referring to some of the radical Hasidic groups in Israel. wiki has a little entry about it:
"While many Jewish anarchists were irreligious or sometimes vehemently anti-religious, there were also a few religious anarchists and pro-anarchist thinkers, who combined contemporary radical ideas with traditional Judaism. Some secular anti-authoritarians, such as Abba Gordin and Erich Fromm, also noticed remarkable similarity between anarchism and many Kabbalistic ideas, especially in their Hasidic interpretation. Some Jewish mystical groups were based on anti-authoritarian principles, somewhat similar to the Christian Quakers and Dukhobors. Martin Buber, a deeply religious philosopher, had frequently referred to the Hasidic tradition.
The Orthodox Kabbalist rabbi Yehuda Ashlag believed in a religious version of libertarian communism, based on principles of Kabbalah, which he called altruist communism. Ashlag supported the Kibbutz movement and preached to establish a network of self-ruled internationalist communes, who would eventually 'annul the brute-force regime completely, for “every man did that which was right in his own eyes.”', because 'there is nothing more humiliating and degrading for a person than being under the brute-force government'. 
A British Orthodox rabbi, Yankev-Meyer Zalkind, was an anarcho-communist and very active anti-militarist. Rabbi Zalkind was a close friend of Rudolf Rocker, a prolific Yiddish writer and a prominent Torah scholar. He argued, that the ethics of the Talmud, if properly understood, is closely related to anarchism.
During biblical times as recorded in Samuel (Shmuel) I 7-9 , God warns the people not to take a king like all the other nations, and therefore to remain in a state of political anarchy."

the second paragraph- about Yehuda Ashlag- pretty much reflects my beliefs!!!

@RedVenim....there is a SHITLOAD of fucking evidence...you just choose to ignore it for some reason???
its called THE FOSSIL RECORD, it's called biological diversity..all very well documented. and whereas not perfectly complete in all circumstances, to assume we've found everything is just fucking retarded, new shit is popping up all the time filling in the gaps.

the world goes in cycles....the great deluges....or the suns (as the mayans refer to them)...represent times of quick and extreme ecological change, much like we are seeing now...the world didnt end with every living thing wiped out...while the populations of many species would be drastically affected,including periods of mass extinction, theres always going to be some survivors..and the world moves on from there. no "transcendental deity" is descending and "creating" new life...that's absurd. but it sure makes for a cool story that can be used to teach people about your culture, beliefs, spirituality and used to control them politically. just not meant to be taken absolutely literally...unless you are the one being controlled that is
and the laws found in these ancient texts are meant for ANCIENT TIMES....millenia ago in most cases....so why the hell are people like redvenim clinging to them so much?? only because fearmongers have scared them into it.

Anarcho, I'd like to see that evidence. If there isn't any then that means the theory is still just that a theory, so you don't have to defend it so ardently.
Jun 11 2011, 12:51 UTC
you are a fucking ignorant asshole, you know that right?
what? you expect me to take you through by baby steps or something? you are that incompetent, are you? try getting a fucking education bro. the evidence is EVERYWHERE, it's not some esoteric secret whose mystery YOU must unlock.
Go to a museum; read about the work of Darwin (particularly his voyage to the Galapagos); look at how people use selective breeding of animals; look at species adapt to the survive in the environment they live in (and change over time as the environment they are living in changes); read about paleontology. im not gonna baby you through it if you are going be such a fucking idiot.
do us a favour, just kill yourself...world'll be better off... you'll be with your stupid non-existent fucking God, inshallah, and we'll all be happier.

i apologize...that was fueled by emotion and just plain rude. but i just don't understand why remain in such a perpetual state of ignorance...Allah gave you skills of observation, use them.

...Ignoring the above...
But on our earlier subject:
If anyone actually tried downloading the file, they would have been rewarded with a certain "cookbook" that I'm guessing would be popularly known around these parts among other things.
Jun 12 2011, 03:30 UTC
Okay, so I have an updated book collection, but I won't be posting it via onebigtorrent.org, seeing that there was such an issue with it last time. So please do search for "Islamic Books & Stuff (Collection 21-11-11)"
Not available here at onebigtorrent.org
Available via monova, btjunkie, kat, bitsnoop or torrentfunk.
...and I'll be posting stuff more inline with THIS tracker again real soon.
