Islam: Ideology

I must confess at this time to losing count of posts I’ve written on Islam. The religion of peace just keeps giving me never-ending subject matter to talk about. Over the past days, I’ve unapologetically destroyed Islam (verbally). I discussed how Islam spreads and conquers foreign lands, keeping out external and internal political opposition in the process. This time, we will look at its fundamental ideology and try to make sense of what makes this epidemic movement keep sustaining itself and growing in their own demographic and among others – without bringing up dogma or scholarly beliefs but instead by realizing what it has morphed to in reality. Comparing dogmatic beliefs between Islam and other religions side-by-side have been a staple among conservative and atheistic debates and I don’t see a need to go through it again. The Quran allows unconsentual sex and the Bible calls for women to be sold to their rapists – but not everyone gets to do that (in Western countries). The dogma of Islam, or any religion for that matter, would come in irrelevant when discussing present-day cultural ideology.

Let’s start off talking about Islam in foreign lands as I realize that’s a hard topic now – with many sides to it. There is this saying (quoted above) from an untraceable author on the power of unity. When people come together with a common cause, they constructively add up to become an indestructible political and cultural force that will stand the test of time. The kind of unity you see among Muslim communities where everybody has strongly shared beliefs is different from the local communities where people of Christian and other faiths or no faiths at all coexist with individualistic attitudes. In individualistic societies, people unite under the common cause of progressing their society as one, setting aside their personal indifferences because their paradigm calls for all individuals of society to be freely entitled to their own beliefs and opinions under the room of law – secularily practicing whatever they wish to practice. In collectivistic societies however, everybody is everybody else. An individual of such society is made to stay in agreement with what others of their society see fit toward the greater interests of their society – in simpler terms, they don’t have a fucking mind of their own. They exhibit similar patterns of thought, moral conscience that manifest in their ensuing actions. This leads to a clash of cultures when collectivistic cultures try to be part of individualistic countries. But it doesn’t end there, as with Islam, you are dealing with a bigger clash of civilizations.

Islam: Jihad, The Brotherhood And Its Purpose

Linda Sarsour, a famous name among the far-left and fellow of the Jihad movement had spoken in UCBerkeley about what she believes were hard topics of the day – addressing them through her own vigilante of justice. After what felt like a heartfelt call to action on white supremacy and prejudice against the Muslim community of America, she boldly incited Jihad in the name of Allah to fight the alt-right and the Trump administration. The brainwashed liberals of Berkeley played along as you’d expect of any ideology with basis in popular opinions of the day. To those who have witnessed the insidiousness of Islam, here you will find reason for the pressing questions you might have been wanting to ask. To those who have not read or experienced Islam, you will find factual arguments based in sociology, psychology and anthropology to the many debatable notions surrounding this religion. Platforms for open debate are often ostracized from the mainstream in submission to pressure (or more often, threats) from the Muslim community.

Islam lives for conquest, facilitated by a militant theological system that exploits its own people for the superficial gain of Allah – only to reward them under their paradigm

an aggressive agenda-driven movement can never peacefully coexist in secularity, especially if that agenda comes from the ideology of Islam

One evening in Chicago, I’d probably just returned from an exhausting day out and settled in to read the news. This was back in late 2016 and the trending stories of the day were either about the elections which we know as among the most bizarre in American history or the infamous travel ban, then dubbed the Muslim ban. Shortly after the ban had been called into effect, an almost spontaneous response from the local community followed. I read a story how people had already gathered and continued gathering in huge numbers outside Terminal 5 to try and stop the ban. Seeing I had nothing interesting to do, I put on my trusty jacket and headed out and took the next Blue Line service to O’Hare for some investigative journalism. This is where I was greeted by all kinds of warming chants. They were at best superficial and rhetorical but that’s what makes protests tick let alone the fact the crowd were predominantly liberals. There were more opinions than facts being pushed. One chant stood out, it went “this is what democracy looks like” only said in a slightly cringe-y yet poetic tone. Well, if there’s one thing I could do by going back in time would be helping them see their own hypocrisy.

Is it democratic to grant freedom to a group that might potentially take away our freedom? These are moral conundrums left on the hanging. These conundrums gain in controversy with passing time from our reluctance to initially approach these issues – because they’re controversial. It challenges hard-etched moral constructs our society has grown to embrace and be a part of. Ever since the cultural movements that shook France and the rest of Europe, the Renaissance and Enlightenment have left (the vast majority of) Christians indoctrinated with the civil qualities of equality and tolerance. The West has almost become synonymous with these civil liberties we take for granted.

I read this somewhere but I’m unable to trace it back to its author,

diversity is not our strength if there is no common cause

11:11: Sorry But Your Wishes Aren’t Coming True

If you have come here expecting some comforting spiritual bullshit that will nicely align with your pre-existing beliefs on this phenomenon, then back off because here we are all about the math, not your meth-induced (or not) delusional reality. A surprising amount of bullshit has accumulated on the Internet trying to explain this phenomenon through the word of some people’s make-believe fairytale. This is a phenomenon in mathematics that really has more to do with people and how they view numbers – numerology. As fancy a term it is, the study of numbers as a significance to real-world events has some very ambiguous theory. It thrives on a tendency of using numbers to attach meaning to anything of a significant nature in people’s lives.

to anyone who isn’t a nihilist, the appeal to numbers and other seemingly meaningless patters in nature results from the complex interaction of many cognitive and personal biases

I first started seeing 11:11 on the clock several years ago. It was then that the seed of my confirmation bias was planted. I am an innately very curious person – a very bad thing in a school system that says ignorance is a bliss. That night I had looked up 11:11 meaning on Google which you’ll later see was a very bad thing to do.

An Atheist On Religions

For those of you who don’t follow me on Facebook, here’s something I’d to say about a Hindu ritual that I very unfortunately had to witness in my city,

people who mindlessly preach to a rock being pushed around the city can also be just as easily manipulated by a new world order, like a Satanic movement or the Illuminati without resistance

mainstream religion has sufficiently primed the masses for easy takeover through widespread self-deceit

But in this post, I won’t attack the concept of religion but instead on the injustices inculcated into society by certain religions and/or practices done under the doctrines of a religion. Readers of my blog and friends know my theological stance of atheism because I tend to be pretty outspoken about this, and it deeply infuriates me when social injustices and heinous acts against humanity are perpetuated under the label of one truly messed up ideology of a religion. Yes, in this post I will discriminate and bring up the these religions without only vaguely describing them. Discrimination that stems from prejudice is hate, but one that stems out of actual facts and statistics are not hate but facts. If you take offense in that last statement, I can only assume that your faith survives on a hatred of facts.

The overly sensitive and SJWs may exit at this point because what is to come is far beyond the reaches of your mental abilities, no kidding!

all new ideas begin controversially until people can draw up an understanding
