Alzheimers

My girlfriends mother died in Alzheimers. I wrote a song that she is singing in this video which by the way is a free guitar lesson at the same time. Sorry for a few sentences in Swedish at the beginning. My friend, the guitarist,  is saying "this is how I play the song ››Strong As Death‹‹"

Arabs Hated The Quran

It may come as a surprise to the reader, and certainly was a surprise to me, to learn that religious fervour as we know it today was far less prominent in the Islamic societies of the past. Islam’s role was mainly highlighted and utilised during conflicts. Pure and true Islam, as it is applied today by the the Wahhabis and Talibans, was seldom put to full practice after the death of Mohammed and his companions. Although the Islamic dynasties were generally oppressive, but there have…

A Christian dilemma

I asked a simple question on a religion discussion board recently...



The OT contains dozens of stories where God commands people to behave in immoral ways. Did God really command people to rape, torture, murder and enslave other people?



I think that's a simple yes or no question.



There appear to be three types of response:



1) Of course He didn't. These are stories of stone age and bronze age people using God as an excuse to justify their behaviour.… Continue

Temptations of a Non-Believer

Excerpt from Primo Levi's 'The Drowned and The Saved', a collection of essays depicting his time at the Concentration (extermination) camps :-

 

'I too entered the Lager as a nonbeliever, and as a nonbeliever I was liberated and have lived to this day. Actually, the experience of the Lager with its frightful iniquity confirmed me in my non-belief. It has prevented me, and still prevents me, from conceiving of any form of providence or transcendant justice… I…

On Science and Spirituality

"....life is all about balance. To know the complete truth we must know both sides of the coin. In today's world, where Science has a claim on every objective truth, it has become more important to look at Spirituality too, because it's the other way of seeing things, and another way of reaching more profound truths, because Science has its limits. Science and Spirituality travel on separate paths but eventually meet at one place. It's all about balance.

So, let's all pay attention to…
