Interesting Questions and Answers

Q1: What happened to all those who lived before Jesus did, when they died? How could there have been a heaven, before Christ?

A: If they were good people, we may be sure they are in heaven with God. Events on earth exist completely apart from the reality of heaven. Time is how we on earth measure the change in material things. Neither God nor heaven are material, physical things subject to change, and are therefore not bound by our concepts of time. No matter when a person lived, whether before or after Christ, at death she will then exist in a heaven without earth-related time, where heaven (and Christ's sacrifice) simply is: then, now, and forever. We cannot use words like "before" or "after" or "until" when speaking of heaven. Christ's sacrifice is outside of our "time," and covers every person who has ever lived.




Q2: If I saw Paris Hilton (I don't like her, but I'm working on what Christ teaches...), and she had a $10 million diamond necklace on (the result of sleeping with the guy who owns Graff Diamonds, and they were mined by workers who were treated very poorly), and if one of those diamonds were to pop out of its setting, would it be against God's Commandments if I put it in my pocket, rather than giving it back, even if I donated all the money to charity?

A: I'm afraid so. The end does not justify the means, no matter how much you load the question. We must never do anything right now that is wrong, even if we think that it will lead to enormous good. We must not even steal from the devil to feed hungry children. That is hard. But it is just complete, absolute trust in God. It is trusting that He knows better than we do. He says not to steal from anyone, so we do not steal from anyone. Period. What happens after that is God's responsibility. There are no exceptions to this. If there were, it would lead to endless rationalizations of our behavior.




Q3: How can God allow little children to be raped and murdered? I would never allow that.

A: Oh, but you do. Four thousand children all over the world die horrible, slow, painful deaths from starvation or dysentery, every day. Your money could help prevent that. Your donations could save many children from a painful death. You are asking God to do something that you yourself are not willing to do. You aspire to be His true child? Save His other children.




Q4: If it's the Sabbath day, but my Mother asks me to help make a shed, do I say yes (to honor my mother & father), or no (to respect the Sabbath day)?

A: Make the shed, without fussing. When you honor your parents, you honor God and the Sabbath. Incidentally, normal recreational activities are fine, like golf or going to a football match. But sometimes work needs to be done. For example, working for "Habitat for Humanity" building houses for poor people would be fine to do on the Sabbath. Working morning to night helping neighbors dig out from a flood or hurricane would be fine. Almost anything necessary for another person's happiness would be fine. God understands all.

Tips For Personal Brainstorming

Everyone has problems and challenges that need solving; they're an inevitable part of living. What many people don't realize, however, is that most of them can be overcome using a simple, focused program of personal brainstorming. Here are some practical tips to help you increase the effectiveness of your personal problem-solving skills:

Step 1: State your problem clearly

Before you start, firmly plant in your mind the idea that your problem can and will be solved. Your job is to find that solution, using personal brainstorming.

State your problem clearly and concisely in one sentence at the top of a blank sheet of paper. Then write down everything you know about your current problem or challenge. Try to isolate and write down specific factors or trends that have contributed to it. Keep in mind that a problem, clearly defined, is already half solved.

By gathering all of the information that you know about your challenge and laying it out in front of you in tangible form, you enable your most powerful problem-solving tool -- your brain -- to see connections, interrelationships and implications in the information you've collected, which would not be obvious if you just kept all of this information in your head.

Think about people who have faced problems or challenges similar to the one you are facing. What strategies or solutions did they use? Then determine if any elements of their solutions can be adapted to your current situation.

Step 2: Brainstorm solutions

As you review your problem statement and supporting information, write down any ideas that occur to you. Don't censor yourself at this point; there will be plenty of time to evaluate your ideas later. Write down every idea, no matter how far-fetched. Your goal at this stage of the personal ideation process is to generate a large quantity of ideas.

Ask yourself: How would a person who is an expert in this area solve this problem? You might want to try this exercise using famous people from history, creative thinkers such as Albert Einstein, or other leaders and innovators that you respect. Your goal for this exercise is to perform a bit of "slight of head" -- to whack your thinking into a different frame of reference to generate fresh ideas and insights.

Divide your problem into its component pieces and write each of them down -- perhaps in a mind map or outline that shows the relationships between each element. Then, try brainstorming ideas for each one. This "slice and dice" technique often works well when you're faced with complex or multi-dimensional challenges.

Envision an ideal future goal or outcome. Then work backwards to the present, writing down the steps you would need to take now to move toward that objective.

If you find yourself running out of ideas too quickly, don't give up. Keep working at it until you have written down at least 20 possible ideas or solutions. Many times, the first 5 to 10 ideas you write down are top-of-mind solutions; often the best ideas take more concentrated and prolonged brainstorming to emerge.

Conclusion

Your subconscious mind likes closure. When faced with an incomplete picture, it works to complete the mental image by inferring the missing information. Your mind works the same way on an unsolved problem or challenge; it loves to dive right in and get the job done.

In closing, remember that you can solve your problems and capitalize on new opportunities using personal ideation. All you need is a pencil, a pad of paper and a quiet "thinking spot" to tap into your creative muse.

Fatwa against “house husbands”

Several influential Islamic clerics in Malaysia say the practice of house husbands - men who stay home to do housework whiletheir wives work at the office - is un-Islamicand should be prevented. The ruling could hamper government policies to encourage men to take on a larger share of family chores. The government has approved paternity leave and is willing to give tax breaks and other incentives to men who share housework. However, the clerics ruled over the weekend that the practice of house husband is seriously flawed, against “natural order” and conflicts with Islamic sharia law.

Islamic Ethics

What are Islamic ethics and where do we find them? Everything in Islam is based upon the Koran (what Mohammed claimed that his god, Allah, said) and the words and deeds of Mohammed (called the Sunna). A Muslim repeats endlessly, “There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is his prophet.” The Koran repeats again and again that Mohammed is the model or pattern for the ideal Muslim. A Muslim is not someone who worships Allah. A Muslim is someone who worships Allah exactly like Mohammed worshipped Allah. So every Muslim is a Mohammedan. There are absolutely no exceptions.
And where do we find Mohammed’s words and deeds?
1. The Traditions (or Hadith) are collections of everything Mohammed did and said. The best and most honored Hadith is by Al Bukhari.
2. The Sira is the biography of Mohammed and is written by Ibn Ishaq. The Sira is to Mohammed as the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are to Jesus.
There was not enough information in the Koran to create Islam. The Sunna (Hadith and Sira) define almost all of the doctrine of Islam.The collection of Koran, Sira, and Hadith is called the Islamic Trilogy. The Trilogy contains the complete political doctrine of Islam. Christians have two sacred texts—Old and New Testament. Muslims have three sacred texts. For 1,400 years, these three texts have only been read by Islamic religious and political leaders, but today these texts have been made easily understood (see the Book List at the end of this pamphlet).
The Trilogy overflows with ethical statements such as these from Bukhari’s Hadith.)B9,85,83 Mohammed: “A Muslim is a brother to other Muslims. He should never oppress them nor should he facilitate their oppression.”B8,73,70 Mohammed: “Harming a Muslim is an evil act; killing a Muslim means rejecting Allah.”
B5,59,369 Mohammed asked, “Who will kill Ka’b (a Jewish poet), the enemy of Allah and Mohammed?”Bin Maslama rose and responded, “O Mohammed! Would it please you if I killed him?”Mohammed answered, “Yes.”Bin Maslama then said, “Give me permission to deceive him with lies so that my plot will succeed.”Mohammed replied, “You may speak falsely to him.”
A Muslim should be a brother to other Muslims (not the rest of humanity). A Muslim should not kill another Muslim. A Muslim may lie to non-Muslims to advance Islam.So, for Islam, the ethical statements are:
Do not kill another Muslim.
Do not steal from another Muslim.
Do not deceive another Muslim.
Islam divides the entire world into Islam and nonbelievers and has two sets of ethics, one for Islam and another for the rest. The Golden Rule has the equality of all humanity as its basis. It is not: Do unto some people, as you would have them do unto you, but do unto all people as you would have them do unto you.
Islam denies the universality of the Golden Rule because Islam starts with the division of the entire world, all humanity, into two different groups—Islamic and non-Islamic. Every aspect of Islamic ethics is based upon this separation. Having two distinct groups leads to two different ethical codes. Said another way, Islam has dualistic ethics.
Deceit, violence and force are optional actions against the unbelievers. Believers are to be treated as brothers and sisters. Islam’s ethics are based upon:Good is whatever advances Islam.Evil is whatever resists Islam.The Origin of the Politics of Islam
Mohammed preached for 13 years in Mecca and only acquired about 150 followers. Following the death of his protector and uncle, the wealthy class of Mecca ran him out of town. He left with his followers and went to Medina, a town located less than a hundred miles from Mecca in what is now Saudi Arabia. There he preached for another year and obtained a hundred or so more followers.
In order to support himself and his followers, he sent men out to rob caravans from Mecca and generously distributed among them the wealth they brought back, keeping a portion for himself. Part of the wealth obtained from these raids were captives which Mohammed also distributed among his men as slaves and in some cases as wives. Slaves who agreed to convert to Islam were freed. Mohammed was never motivated by money as much as by power. He considered money a tool that could be used to fund jihad and to support his followers. These are all political actions.
Mohammed moved into a profoundly political mode. Suddenly the new Islam became popular. It was not simply a religion that would assure the poor a place of honor in a gilded paradise, but a political system that could provide them with wealth, sex and power, all to be had for the taking from the Free.
The word of Allah, as received and reported by Mohammed, is divided into two records. The Koran of Mecca was based on religious precepts. The Koran of Medina, however, became clearly political in scope and direction.
The belief that only Muslims are protected by Allah meant that non-Muslims were not afforded the usual considerations of morality, such as equality, honesty and compassion. Examples we see from Mohammed’s life show that non-Muslims can be mocked, raped, cursed, threatened, tortured, killed, robbed, or enslaved to advance the cause of Islam.
This dual system of ethics paved the way to jihad: war undertaken as an Islamic duty, [See Page 7] and are reflected in the Islamic world view:
dar al Islam, land of submissiondar al harb, land of war
In contrast, the prevailing non-Muslim world view is that all people at some fundamental level are equal, although they are not necessarily the same. Not all people are of the same ability, although all deserve to be treated fairly, compassionately and honestly. The ultimate ethical statement is: “Treat others as you wish to be treated.” In this view “others” and “self” are equal and all of humanity is to be accorded the same consideration. This is the ideal. We frequently fail to live up to the ideal, but is the ideal nevertheless.
The dual ethics of Islam are not as simple as a separate set of ethics for the non-Muslim. What makes political Islam so effective is that it has two stages of ethics for the non-Muslim. It has the ethics of the Meccan Koran (early, religious text), and the ethics of the Medinan Koran (later, political text). Islam can treat the non-Muslim well, but as an inferior (Koran of Mecca), or treat him as an enemy of Allah (Koran of Medina). Both actions are sanctioned as sacred in the Koran. Islamic apologists always refer to the Meccan ethics.

PEGGY LEE: "Sweet Happy Life" Lyrics

My wish for you, sweet happy life
May all the days of the year that you live be laughing days
With all my heart, sweet happy life
And may the night times that follow the days be dancing nights
Stars for your smile, moons for your hair
And someone’s wonderful love for your loving heart to share
My wish for you, sweet happy life
May all your sorrows be gone and your heart begin to sing
And if a wish can make it be
I wish you spend everyday of your happy life with me
Stars for your smile, moons for you hair
And someone’s wonderful love for your loving heart to share
My wish for you, sweet happy life
May all your sorrows be gone and your heart begin to sing
And if a wish can make it be
I wish you spend everyday of your happy life with me

CONVERSATION

Conversation can be defined as a societal phenomenon where two or more people communicate their feelings and exchange information. Whether regarding a group of friends, colleagues, or even the passing stranger, one would be hard-pressed to find any society that did not engage in conversation. Looking specifically in the academic world, conversation can be observed in many places. Obliviously most classroom dynamics are conducive to conversation, promoting discussion between students and teachers. Also, conversation between students is frequent during walks to and from class. However, the dining halls are the most common place for conversation. During breakfast, lunch and dinner students engage one another over the events of the day. In fact, there aren't many places or times in life when an individual can be without conversation. It has become such an integral part of everyday life that perhaps we as a society have lost a sense of what it is to stop, listen and reflect upon what is happening around us.

Contradictions in definitions

Most of the definitions are focused on differentiating between living material and non-living material. Some new ideas were proposed in the years between 1980 and 1990. It is still not clear whether computer software exists that could be considered as alive. Some computer software shows certain resemblances with living organisms. It is not difficult, in an algorithmic sense, to create software which fulfills some base criteria (growth, reproduction, reaction to environmental changes, etc.).
Consider an artificial environment with certain properties (for example, a system which is calling the processes with different input). If a process is able to solve the problem (respond with a correct output) within a given time limit, it can survive; otherwise, the process is deleted. If the process solves the problem before the other processes, it gets higher part from the computer resources. This is a very simple model of an environment in which life has been simulated. More sophisticated environments can also be created. Although in most of the simulations the systems collapse relatively quickly (for example, none of the processes are able to adapt and solve the given problem), it has not yet been formally proved that such an environment can not exist permanently. Such an environment would meet all the criteria of simple life definitions.
If ever such a theorem could be formally proved, it will be necessary to reconsider the definitions or admit that the computer world is a good approximation of the real one.

Origin of life

Although it cannot be pinpointed exactly, evidence suggests that life on Earth has existed for about 3.7 billion years .

There is no truly "standard" model for the origin of life, but most currently accepted scientific models build in one way or another on the following discoveries, which are listed roughly in order of postulated emergence:

Plausible pre-biotic conditions result in the creation of the basic small molecules of life. This was demonstrated in the Miller-Urey experiment.

Phospholipids spontaneously form lipid bilayers, the basic structure of a cell membrane.

Procedures for producing random RNA molecules can produce ribozymes, which are able to produce more of themselves under very specific conditions.

There are many different hypotheses regarding the path that might have been taken from simple organic molecules to protocells and metabolism. Many models fall into the "genes-first" category or the "metabolism-first" category, but a recent trend is the emergence of hybrid models that do not fit into either of these categories,Despite the length of scientist's current speculations, the origin of life remains as one of science's greatest mysteries.

Definitions of life

1. A characteristic state or mode of living; "social life"; "city life"; "real life"


2. The course of existence of an individual; the actions and events that occur in living;
"he hoped for a new life in Australia"; "he wanted to live his own life without interference
from others"


3. The experience of being alive; the course of human events and activities; "he could no longer cope with the complexities of life"


4. Animation: the condition of living or the state of being alive; "while there's life there's hope"; "life depends on many chemical and physical processes"


5. The period during which something is functional (as between birth and death); "the battery had a short life"; "he lived a long and happy life"


6. The period between birth and the present time; "I have known him all his life"


7. Liveliness: animation and energy in action or expression; "it was a heavy play and the actors tried in vain to give life to it"


8. Biography: an account of the series of events making up a person's life
the period from the present until death; "he appointed himself emperor for life"
a living person; "his heroism saved a life"


9. Living things collectively; "the oceans are teeming with life"


10. A motive for living; "pottery was his life"


11. The organic phenomenon that distinguishes living organisms from nonliving ones; "there is no life on the moon"


12. Life sentence: a prison term lasting as long as the prisoner lives; "he got life for killing the guard"

What is Life?

What is life? Does this sound like a strange question to you? Of course we all know what is meant by the word "life", but how would you define it? Do all living things move? Do they all eat and breathe? Even though we all seem to know what is meant by saying something is "alive", it's not very easy to describe what "life" is. It's almost as hard as describing where life came from. Even the biologists (people who study life) have a tough time describing what life is! But after many years of studying living things, from the mold on your old tuna sandwich to monkeys in the rainforest, biologists have determined that all living things do share some things in common: 1) Living things need to take in energy 2) Living things get rid of waste3) Living things grow and develop4) Living things respond to their environment5) Living things reproduce and pass their traits onto their offspring6) Over time, living things evolve (change slowly) in response to their environmentTherefore, in order for something to be considered to "have life" as we know it, it must possess these characteristics.
