No religion can coexist with the idea of equality.
Equality = self-importance.
Self-importance = ego.
Ego = separation from the object of religion.

You seem an intelligent and reasonable fellow. This is good: none of this is, or should become, personal.
But I make no bones about my hostility to islam, in response to its manifest hostility to anything non-islamic.
The fatal mistake the West has made is in assuming all peoples have all things in common.
The deed is done. Sadly. Now mayhem will ensue. Sadly.
What a fuckin' waste.

And BTW: I do not subscribe, as so many others do, to the notion of thread-derailment being in any way bad.
The writer has more credibility than the thread. Until the writer proves otherwise.

There's nothing to understand about islam, unless you plan on becoming a muslim.
I note that any time a muslim turns up, they assume people are hungry to understand it.
And if they aren't, then absurd offense is taken, often up to, and including, mass murder.

Halal is the slitting of an animal's throat while it is still fully conscious, to let it bleed to death.
Meanwhile, muslims demand that everybody else eat halal meat, too.
Which is entirely in keeping with the whole medieval mindset of muslims.
All of which is fine, somewhere in some far-off desert, among like-minded characters.
Not so fine when mixed with civilization.

Still, any civilization that is unable to defend itself against medieval encroachment, really doesn't have much going for it.

Tao te Ching: Lao Tzu (so it is said). Stephen Mitchell translation.
Life made beautiful in very few pages. Innocence extolled. Knowledge ridiculed. Wisdom implicit.
The first book to remind me I already knew all I needed to know. And what I didn't know, I didn't need to.
The stage set for a quantum leap into the cosmos.

Illusions: Richard Bach, made an excellent primer, for Tao te Ching, which I crossed paths with many years later. Both are all about simplicity and mystery. The two basic ingredients for life.

Modern is a pretty subjective term, but for me it would include 'Illusions', by Richard Bach.
An intrepid aviator, and a regular guy. A tale to remember.

Yes. That's a nice tree. I'll bet it took an age to finish.
Sort-of a cross between an oak and a mangrove.

The blah-blah is a limerick :)
If you look, you'll notice the meter.
And limericks are all about nonsense.

Hehe. That's as good a reason as any to start conceiving a soul.

This is mystical, and therefore makes no sense.
If we want it to make sense, we must judge it to be crazy.
If we don't mind it making no sense, it remains whatever it is.
Mystical.

Something to be regarded, like a crystal in the dirt.
It is what it is, whatever it is.
It doesn't really matter what it is.
It exists independently of what we think of it.

Fun is the consolation prize when you can't get no satisfaction.
It's a little better than nothing, though.
