Ghost Dog Movie Quote

Ghost Dog:
The Way of the Samurai is found in death. Meditation on inevitable death should be performed daily. Every day, when one's body and mind are at peace, one should meditate upon being ripped apart by arrows, rifles, spears, and swords, being carried away by surging waves, being thrown into the midst of a great fire, being struck by lightning, being shaken to death by a great earthquake, falling from thousand-foot cliffs, dying of disease or committing seppuku at the death of one's master. And every day, without fail, one should consider himself as dead. This is the substance of the Way of the Samurai.
Awesome opening quote for a well written and entertaining movie.

The point of my post is that anyone can find such coincidences if they look for them.

A similar project -- that I might imagine is at odds with the Qaran -- is the Bible Code ( They found a whole bunch of predictions in the Torah. Actually, they were postdictions... predictions after the event. Not very impressive. And to show how ridiculous it is, they did the same exercise with "Moby Dick", and found lots of postdictions there too.

The Qaran does not predict the big bang. The related text is far too vague. It's yet another example of fitting loose text to known events.

If the Qaran really predicts things, then find some text in the Qaran that predicts an event that hasn't happened yet, and tell me when it's going to happen. Or extract from the Qaran some text that leads directly to a new scientific discovery. Not a discovery that is in the past. A NEW discovery that has not been made YET.

Do that a few times, and then I'll be impressed.

OK Challenge accepted, how about the "Day of Judgement" synonymous with "cataclysm" or "apocalypse"(this is the prediction). And that is my point. It's part of the Unseen Test, one where you must be a believer to pass. Now if you dont believe in the last day, then you wont be successful on that day. A good sceptic would make the miniscule sacrifice to reap eternal rewards (sceptic of the devil's promises). A poor sceptic would be sceptic of Gods words, and actually follow the devil into materialism and failed theories like the one where it was proposed the universe is an eternal constant(the title escapes the tip of my tongue).

Allah"Do the unbelievers not realize that the heavens and the earth used to be one solid mass that we exploded into existence? And from water we made all living things. Would they believe?"
The Qur'an 21:30

God knows you exist, that is why he specifically mentioned YOU as the subject. Each of these verses have limitless and sound implications. the second part about water tells all about darwin and evolution in a nutshell.
The quran isnt some magic harry potter Nostradamus sooth sayer book. It' a book of warning and admonition, it contains stories of great prophets and men corrected from other old tales. Consider some new software, Quran is the .exe, but the Prophet is the application consultant who showed us how to apply it, His sayings contain hundreds of prophesies, but thats another blog page. Half or more of the signs of day of judgement have passed. The prophesies regarding excess killing and floods and quakes are in the process of fulfillment. Thanks for the forum.

be nice to your pets!!

Hadith / Customary Narrative of the Holy Prophet of Allah PBUH
Volume 1, Book 12, Number 712:
Narrated Asma' bint Abi Bakr:
The Prophet once offered the eclipse prayer. He stood for a long time and then did a prolonged bowing. He stood up straight again and kept on standing for a long time, then bowed a long bowing and then stood up straight and then prostrated a prolonged prostration and then lifted his head and prostrated a prolonged prostration. And then he stood up for a long time and then did a prolonged bowing and then stood up straight again and kept on standing for a long time. Then he bowed a long bowing and then stood up straight and then prostrated a prolonged prostration and then lifted his head and went for a prolonged prostration. On completion o the prayer, he said, "Paradise became so near to me that if I had dared, I would have plucked one of its bunches for you and Hell became so near to me that I said, 'O my Lord will I be among those people?' Then suddenly I saw a woman and a cat was lacerating her with it claws. On inquiring, it was said that the woman had imprisoned the cat till it died of starvation and she neither fed it no freed it so that it could feed itself."

The implications go beyond pets. Lets take a look at ecology and deforestation, and the destruction of animal habitat all over the world. For example - we should all feel responsible for the current trend of polar bear forced to leave the arctic in search of food. Polar bears have actually been spotted in grizzly bear habitat - but they don't have a clue on the food forraging methods of the grizzly. Let's take it easy on the climate change trend and avoid playing the role of the woman in the hadith/customary narrative (who could have been a good religious woman otherwise).

Please read HERE
Therein is placed a hadith regarding putting nuisance strays to sleep, which occurs today, the local shelters here put stray cats to sleep. I am not sure if I agree that they are a nuisance however.

Surah 29
Al Ankabut - The Spider
~ 41 ~
مَثَلُ الَّذِينَ اتَّخَذُوا مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ أَوْلِيَاء كَمَثَلِ الْعَنكَبُوتِ اتَّخَذَتْ بَيْتًا وَإِنَّ أَوْهَنَ الْبُيُوتِ لَبَيْتُ الْعَنكَبُوتِ لَوْ كَانُوا يَعْلَمُونَ
The parable of those who take protectors other than Allah is that of the spider, who builds (to itself) a house; but truly the flimsiest of houses is the spider's house;- if they but knew.
~ 46 ~
وَلَا تُجَادِلُوا أَهْلَ الْكِتَابِ إِلَّا بِالَّتِي هِيَ أَحْسَنُ إِلَّا الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا مِنْهُمْ وَقُولُوا آمَنَّا بِالَّذِي أُنزِلَ إِلَيْنَا وَأُنزِلَ إِلَيْكُمْ وَإِلَهُنَا وَإِلَهُكُمْ وَاحِدٌ وَنَحْنُ لَهُ
And dispute ye not with the People of the Book, except with means better (than mere disputation), unless it be with those of them who inflict wrong (and injury): but say, "We believe in the revelation which has come down to us and in that which came down to you; Our Allah and your Allah is one; and it is to Him we bow (in Islam)."

Zionist Racism at Racism conference.

As described in the link; it is apparently inflammatory to accuse Israel of perpetuating racism as claimed by Ahmadinejad.

Now, lets THINK about htis clearly. Take a step back and look at the big picture. Why did delegates stage this walk-out, when here is what was spoken through a translator:

"And they sent migrants from Europe, the United States and mother parts of the world in order to establish a totally racist government in the occupied Palestine,"

OK, are these comments valid? True or False you cant go and throw them out the window because one FEELS they are anti-semetic. Personally, all that ahmadinejad said was true and on par with the historical and current situation in Israel there is no question whatsoever.

But this is the callous nature of Israeli/Zionist propaganda. If someone points a finger at you, just point a big stick at them, bait and switch.

This is only an example of what has been going on for a century, ever heard on the ADL?, which should be called the J-ADL. Their sole mandate: to counter any criticism of Zionist Israel by branding the critic as antisemetic. You dont like the bombing of palestinian civillians? ANTISEMITE. You dont like the wall? antisemite! radical! You dont agree with starving a nation of food, water and basic needs? antisemite! Oh you think we are racist to muslims and gentiles alike! "... am not, you are! In Fact you're an antisemite", that's worse than being a racist these days, of course.
