5 W's

 

        I noticed your spelling handicap,  you might try reading the daily newspaper and copying their spelling habits.

     As for the 5 W's,  where and when is this debate; local atheist might be willing to show up and help out. Why were you asked and not someone else; give us some back ground of yourself and the event.

Well first off, the

Well first off, the easy fix for your spelling issue would be to do what I do. Make your posts in your word processor and then copy/paste then into the forums. Apart from that, it seems like you are fairly good with the English language.

 

As far as getting into a debate goes, I would advise you to know as much as possible about the other side as you can before getting down to brass tacks. Do whatever research you can ahead of time so that you stand a chance of knowing where the other person is likely to go.

 

Does your opponent have a youtube site or myspace page? A blog or some published articles? Seriously, you really only stand a chance at taking them down if you know what they are about. Absent that information, you really can't expect to be well prepared for the debate.

 

Seriously, no one group has a lock on either being smart or being dumb. There are moslems who are as dumb as the worst that x-tianity has to offer and there are those that can go point for point. Then there is the Suni/Shia thing. I don't exactly follow that one but I get the impression that it is roughly equivalent to the Catholic/Protestant thing.

 

Also, you should know that the real difference between x-tians and moslems is not the huge gulf that you might think. The fact is that to many of the most educated of moslems, such material as the lord's prayer and the nicene creed are considered to be the very essence of moslem thought.

 

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

 

Basically, you are heading into complex territory and if you do not take the time to learn the ground on which you seek to do battle, then you might as well not bother.

thanks I am reading all

thanks

I am reading all that i can but the khoran is a big freaking book and its not published I English. 

they don't have any form of social networking  site.

as fore the Suni/Shia thing there are more forms of Islam than forms of Christianity.

Now they are a good form or Islam they call for the end of fundamentalism and preach peace.

So its a kill um with kindness tact I will take


 

btw I do my best on the spelling

 I was just about to

 I was just about to suggest you might want to have a look at Kafirgirl's site, http://kafirgirl.wordpress.com/ , but that might be a bit too harsh.

 

"A good form of Islam", you say ? I heard of those. Maybe they'd be better of debating their more anti-social brethren.

 

Anyway, good luck.

 

ps: as far as I know, the Koran does get published in English. Shouldn't be too hard to find a copy.

Please at least just read and try to understand it


Read in the name of thy Lord who creates.

Creates man from a clot.

Read and thy Lord is most Generous

Who taught by pen.

Taught man what he knew not.

So what's your point ?

take your worthless shit somewhere else.  it's never done a damn bit of good for humanity and it never will.  fuck your book and fuck your prophet.
