I recently finished reading Infidel, the autobiography of Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She is a former Muslim who became an atheist. In reading this book, I found that she was someone I could relate to but also someone whose life was very different from my own.
Hell is understood here as a place of ceaseless torment, going on forever. Hell couldn’t exist without a being as powerful as God to maintain it. But even if God did exist, Hell would be incompatible with God’s goodness and justice. So, whether or not God exists, there is no Hell. Watch the video or read the article to learn why.
I saw a Muslim video that claimed women should wear hijabs, because not wearing them led men into the sin of lusting after them, and this made women guilty of a double-sin, not just once, but for each man they attracted. The idea was also expressed that revealing their attractiveness by not wearing a hijab caused men to feel tormented.
In her book Allah Is Dead: Why Islam is Not a Religion, Christian author Rebecca Bynum argues that Islam should not qualify as a religion when it comes to constitutionally-protected freedom of religion. Is she right? This post examines her position and how much freedom of religion Muslims or anyone else should be allowed.
In Allah Is Dead: Why Islam is Not a Religion, Rebecca Bynum frequently claims that Christianity is superior to Islam, and to do this, she often tries to lump Islam and Atheism together, as if they are both more alike than they are like Christianity. So there is lots of backpeddling, in which she will criticize Islam, then try to show that Christianity is not the same.
