There is a challenge for atheist that has been circulating on youtube, this chalenge has basically two parts
Define what type of atheist are you
1 God is like Santacluase, a character that is obviously fictional , we know that he doesn’t excist
2 God is like Aliens, he may or may not exist, “we don’t know” there is no conclusive evidence on either side, so atheism is simply the default answer
Which one of these 2 options is closer to your view? (or do you suggest a third option?)...
As the last couple of AAI threads seemed to be just intended for preaching dogma with no attempt at actually informing, discussing or responding to questions in good faith, I thought I'd start one where there will be no agenda other than to present what the Quran, sunnah and classical tafsir actually say on an issue. No sectarianism. No opinions (apart from those of authoritative classical scholars). Just the 'facts', ma'am.
And I promise not to accuse anyone of hate or bashing or ignorance...
Can one interpret the Bible?
Some claim the Bible interprets itself, which I disagree with.
I interpret the Bible. Usually taking the plainest most mundane meaning. However I can't guarantee this mundane simple meaning to have been the intent of the original author.

He was widely seen as being behind the March 2021 document that outraged the gay community, which Francis has made pains to welcome into the church fold.The document declared that the Catholic Church won’t bless same-sex unions...
"There is no such thing as the pure, obvious message of the Bible alone."
Would anyone in this forum seriously claim that this is false?
How easy is it to be the smartest on the planet, where science has proven that apes gave birth to the human race?
It is very easy to be a genius when science has proven that humans are monkeys. Sorry, "primates". Proven that we are primates. It is easy to surpass the mind of all the scientists of the Earth because they proved that people are not people, but animals.
If a person is an animal, then there can be no angels. Here is a childish, unspoiled view of the world: plants, animals,...
I am restarting this thread in hopes that those who want to know and learn about Islam can ask. If I am able, I will try my best to answer as truthfully as possible. I wish sincere questions and not hateful questions please. Thank you.
I love dharmic religions. Why? Because of the teachings of karma and reincarnation is common sense.
The law of karma and reincarnation make also sense since it is both justice and mercy.
If God/ Gods really is both justice and love then reincarnation has to be true. And in the dharmic religions it is more important to be a good person than to believe in God/gods
