Muslim Joke

In order to test his son a Muslim father leaves a Quran, knife, some money and bottle of alcohol on a table and thought to himself:

If he takes the Quran he is going to be a good Muslin in the future.
If he takes the money he is going to be a good businessman in the future.
If he takes the alcohol he is going to be a alcoholic in the future.
If he takes the knife he is going to be a bully a thief in the future.

As he was hiding behind the counter the son comes home and puts the knife and money in pocket, drinks the alcohol and takes the Quran with him.

The father realized his son is going to become an Imam in the future.

Argument with Christians and Muslims

I argued about the religious leaders like pope or ayatollah.
Their answer was they are not the real leaders. They are fakes.

I argued about the Taliban or the people who blow up abortion clinics.
Their answer was they are not true Christians or Muslims. They don't understand Christianity or Islam.

I argued about stoning people to death and slavery in their books.
Their answer was those were from different times. it doesn't apply to us anymore.

I argued about different Surahs and Verses.
Their answer was the translation is wrong or its out of the context.

 I argued about the history of violence and the historical aspect.
Their answer was that historian didn't know or was an enemy and my religion is the religion of peace.

I argued about the scientific aspect of no need for a god.
Their answer was science is often wrong and doesn't have all the answers.

I argued about the big-bang and evolution.
Their answer was they are both theories and not proven and also a scam.

One in five Americans has no religion

The fastest growing "religious" group in America is made up of people with no religion at all, according to a Pew survey showing that one in five Americans is not affiliated with any religion.
The number of these Americans has grown by 25% just in the past five years, according to a survey released Tuesday by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life.

The survey found that the ranks of the unaffiliated are growing even faster among younger Americans.

Thirty-three million Americans now have no religious affiliation, with 13 million in that group identifying as either atheist or agnostic, according to the new survey.

Pew found that those who are religiously unaffiliated are strikingly less religious than the public at large. They attend church infrequently, if at all, are largely not seeking out religion and say that the lack of it in their lives is of little importance.

And yet Pew found that 68% of the religiously unaffiliated say they believe in God, while 37% describe themselves as “spiritual” but not “religious.” One in five said that they even pray every day.

John Green, a senior research adviser at Pew, breaks the religiously unaffiliated into three groups. First, he says, are those who were raised totally outside organized religion.

Stem Cell Discovery Secures Nobel Prize

Nobel Prize winner Sir John Gurdon talks to reporters on Oct. 8, 2012 in London. Gurdon and Shinya Yamanaka from Japan have both been awarded the Nobel prize for medicine or physiology for their work as pioneers of stem cell research. Photo by Peter Macdiarmid/Getty Images.

In 1962, John B. Gurdon of the United Kingdom discovered that a cell removed from the gut of a frog contained all the genetic information necessary to create the whole frog. More than 40 years later, Shinya Yamanaka of Japan found that by introducing a few genes to a mature mouse cell, he could reprogram it into a stem cell, capable of developing into any cell in the body.

Gurdon and Yamanaka share this year's Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their work in cellular reprogramming, 50 years after Gurdon's initial discovery. Their work in stem cells has led to a wave of advances, from cloning animals to allowing scientists to create embryonic cells without having to destroy embryos.

Theocracy And Insult to History

What you see in the pictures below are pieces left from Persepolis the capital of the Persian Empire.
As you see in the top picture everything is where it should be, but in the picture below that you see a prayer room for Namaz, which is an Islamic prayer and Muslims have to do five times a day. In order to do this ritual people have to take their shoes off. In the corner of the room you see a piece of Persepolis. Part of 2500 years of human history is placed there in order for prayers to put their feet on as a support for wearing or taking off their shoes.
Another insult from Islamic Republic to humanity, Iranians, nonbelievers, secularists and history, to show the superiority of Islam to any other ideology or religion and to set another example of what comes with theocracy.
