    Saudi Arabian schools to teach Ramayan and Mahabharat

    I don't know how true this is but as far as I know you're not even allowed to wear a crucifix or Star of David pendant. What is life like in Iran where there are minorities ? Maybe that can show us how it may turn out in KSA

    Quran Criticism - God's word or manmade?

    Hi, Ultimately us who don't believe in the Quran don't need to provide a reason for why of course, but for as long as we are free to do so some of us will openly object to submission to the Quran due to various reasons. If that describes you, by special request from one of our RF members who...

    Quran and marriage between Muslim women and non-Muslim men

    Is the law forbidding Muslim women from marrying non-Muslim men found in the Quran? This law is a form of anticompetitive law designed to discriminate against non-Muslim men and undoubtedly belongs up there with apostasy and blasphemy laws as a form of not so subtle thought coercion in my...

    Evolution and a Muslim's perspective

    According to my understanding evolution does not have anything to say about whether or not there is a supreme creator. Darwin considered it absurd to doubt that a person could be an ardent theist and evolutionist. Evolution does (according to my understanding) reject the concept that humans are...

It can be compared with the RF Rules. Criticize ideas all you want, just don't get personal, as in bullying, insulting...

    Charlie Hebdo Muslim hypocrisy still not cured Why these Muslims are hypocrites: They impose their religion on others, but criticize other's culture/religion (Respect goes 2 ways. As long as they belittle other religions, they have no right to object if we do the same) (The Muslims started...

    Why don't Jews and Muslims eat pork ?

    If Zoonotic diseases come from being in close proximity to animals and not being evolved enough to eat them then did pigs cause disease in the Middle East thousands of years ago ?

    Does liberalism value human rights over ethics?
