Neuroscientist: Religious Fundamentalism Could Be A Curable Mental Illness

A leading neuroscientist at the University of Oxford says in the next 60 years doctors could be treating religious fundamentalism as a curable mental illness.

“One of the surprises may be to see people with certain beliefs as people who can be treated,” research scientist Kathleen Taylor told an audience at the Hay Literary Festival in Wales on Wednesday.

“Somebody who has for example become radicalized to a cult ideology – we might stop seeing that as a personal choice that they have chosen as a result of pure free will and may start treating it as some kind of mental disturbance.”

When Taylor said “beliefs” she didn’t mean just religious or cult ideology.

“I am not just talking about the obvious candidates like radical Islam or some of the more extreme cults,” she said. “I am talking about things like the belief that it is OK to beat your children. These beliefs are very harmful but are not normally categorized as mental illness.”

Author of “The Brain Supremacy,” Taylor believes, “In many ways that could be a very positive thing because there are no doubt beliefs in our society that do a heck of a lot of damage, that really do a lot of harm.”

In the book she cautioned that scientists have “to be careful when it comes to developing technologies which can slip through the skull to directly manipulate the brain.”

“They cannot be morally neutral, these world-shaping tools; when the aspect of the world in question is a human being, morality inevitably rears its hydra heads,” Taylor wrote. “Technologies which profoundly change our relationship with the world around us cannot simply be tools, to be used for good or evil, if they alter our basic perception of what good and evil are.”

In 2006, Taylor wrote a book called “Brainwashing: The Science of Thought Control” in which she studies that persuasive tactics of groups like al-Qaeda.

BILL COSBY: WE SHOULD ALL BE MORE LIKE MUSLIMS



by BREITBART NEWS  10 Jun 2013, 9:41 AM PDT

Comedian Bill Cosby is no stranger to the culture wars.

The iconic stand-up and star of the beloved sitcom The Cosby Show routinely weighs in on cultural matters.

This past weekend, Cosby penned an op-ed for The New York Post in which he detailed some of the flaws in modern society. He also suggested we should take a page out of the Koran if we want to have healthier families, less crime and more productive people.

I’m a Christian. But Muslims are misunderstood. Intentionally misunderstood. We should all be more like them. They make sense, especially with their children. There is no other group like the Black Muslims, who put so much effort into teaching children the right things, they don’t smoke, they don’t drink or overindulge in alcohol, they protect their women, they command respect. And what do these other people do?

They complain about them, they criticize them. We’d be a better world if we emulated them. We don’t have to become black Muslims, but we can embrace the things that work.

EVERY year, more than 5,000 Brits convert to Islam. More than half of those who make the switch are white – and 75 per cent are women. If Muslim women are being oppressed than why on earth will 75 per cent of woman become Muslim?

Just what the world needs, another hypocritical, classist, elitist, self righteous wanker, propped up by the white establishment preaching to everyone else.  Bill Cosby is just another moral hypocrite, preaching to everyone else while sneaking around having affairs and fathering children out of wedlock and then trying to pay off everyone to keep it quiet.  Yeah, we will be taking Father Bill's advice real seriously.  Rumour has it that Bill is a bit of a rapist, so he should fit in well in ISLAMIC culture.

The U.S. Harvard University, one of the most prestigious institutions in the world, has placed a Quran verse at the entrance of its faculty of law.

Described by the institution as one of the greatest expressions of justice in history, Verse 135 of Surah Al Nisa (The Women Chapter) is dedicated to humanity as the best expression defending and articulating justice.

“O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm in justice, witnesses for Allah, even if it be against yourselves or parents and relatives. Whether one is rich or poor, Allah is more worthy of both. So follow not [personal] inclination, lest you not be just. And if you distort [your testimony] or refuse [to give it], then indeed Allah is ever, with what you do, Acquainted.” [An Nisa (4) : 135]

Since islam is spread out across many continents and different races, local customs and social norms find their way into the religion, creating a sub-religion in a sense.

That's why you get Arabs not liking indo-pak muslims, and Black American Muslims are different as well, especially if they're of the elijah muhammad sect.

You also have Russian Muslims and Indonesian Muslims, they vary in practice and understanding as well.

In the 1200s, ibn al-Nafis discovered the process of pulmonary circulation - how blood flows from the heart to the lungs to mix with air, then back to the heart. His discovery of it was lost for over 700 years and was only exposed when a manuscript he wrote was found in 1924 in a library in Berlin. — in Cairo, Al Qahirah.

Did you know that Islam introduced to the West coffee, shampoo, toothpaste, 3 course meal, the glass drinking glass, seasonal clothing?

Islam made the west cool so don’t hate
by Khaled Diab
Source: huffingtonpost.com

Those who fear Muslim influence should raise a glass to the Sultan of Style next time they freshen up, don the latest fashions or enjoy a delicious three-course meal.

In the wake of the Woolwich machete attack against an off-duty British army drummer, the stabbing in Paris of a French soldier and the Boston marathon attack, anti-Muslim sentiments have, as might be expected, increased in Europe and the United States.

In the U.K., for example, the far-right British National Party (BNP) — which had such a disastrous showing at recent local elections that it has urged it members to “do our bit for Britain and our race” by breeding more — and English Defence League have been mobilizing overtime to capitalize on the fallout.

The BNP leader Nick Griffin called ominously on supporters to “join the British resistance“, while another senior party official suggested that the men behind the London murder should be executed. Meanwhile, anti-Muslim hate crimes are running at 10 times their usual rate, according to a British government hotline.

The United States has also experienced a backlash in what Salon dubbed as the “return of the anti-Muslim bigots“. There have been hate crimes as well as suggestions for blanket spying on Muslims.

On both sides of the Atlantic, there has been growing fear of the “Islamization” of society and the notion that Muslims stand opposed to Western values is gaining traction. This is reflected in a new cross-border survey, which shows that majorities in a number of Western societies regard Islam as a threat.

As I’ve argued before, and despite my concerns over Islamic radicalism and extremism, Islam is not alien to Western civilization but an integral part of it. In fact, Islam and the Muslim influence are deeply woven into the West’s social and civilizational fabric.

Readers may well have come across historical explanations of the contributions Muslims made to modern sciences, philosophy, medicine, agriculture, sociology and other areas of learning. Here, I’d like to explore how Muslims helped make the West “cool,” shaped our modern tastes and sensibilities and gave us many things we regard as quintessentially Western, such as the café.

In fact, I’d like to introduce just one man, Ziryab (Blackbird), the Sultan of Style, who, given his contribution to European chic, should have statues erected to him in Milan, Paris, London and New York. Although you may never have heard of this dandy ninth century Muslim, his genius touches the most private and intimate moments of all our lives — modern etiquette would be positively vulgar without his tasteful influence.

Born Abul Hassan Ali Ibn Nafie in modern-day Iraq in 789 A.D., he joined the court of the legendary Haroun al-Rashid (also of 1,001 Arabian Nights’ fame) where he was the student of a gifted musician. But after stepping too hard on the toes of his mentor, he hot-heeled it to the rising star of Baghdad’s cultural and scientific rival, Cordoba in Andalusia.

There, he joined the court of the Umayyad Prince of Cordoba Abdel-Rahman II. Islamic Cordoba was a beautiful and manicured metropolis of imposing public buildings, although it still lacked its most famous landmark, the 10th century Great Mosque (the Mezquita, as it is known today).

It boasted about 1,000 mosques, 600 public baths, several hundred public schools and a university, not to mention the grand aqueducts in the surrounding countryside that fed the complex irrigation system introduced to the area by the Arabs.

Although he lived a few centuries before the Renaissance, Ziryab was a true “Renaissance man.” In addition to being a polymath with knowledge in astronomy, geography, meteorology and botany, he was also a visionary trendsetter.

As an accomplished singer and musician — he was reputed to have memorized a repertoire of more than 10,000 songs — Ziryab added a fifth string to the Arab oud, creating the lute (which is also etymologically derived from the Arabic al-oud) that would, through the Spanish, spread across Europe.

Ziryab also rearranged musical theory, setting free the metrical and rhythmical parameters, creating new ways of expression (known as mwashah, zajal and nawbah). This musical genius established the world’s first known conservatory where aspiring young musicians learnt harmony and composition and were encouraged to develop musical theory further.

But one thing above all else constitutes Ziryab’s gravest or greatest legacy, depending on your standpoint, to prosperity. “Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months,” Oscar Wilde, that Ziryab-like Englishman, once retorted. But who, Mr. Wilde, was it that first came up with the revolutionary idea of seasonally shedding our clothes?

Ziryab’s earth-shattering innovation was to submit fashion to the cycle of the seasons. This trendsetter came up with the then outlandish idea that people should wear different styles — and not just more layers or an overcoat — in summer and in winter. He even invented in-between seasons.

This hip Muslim brought a similar orderly flare to food. When people think of haute cuisine, their minds tend to go all Français. French may be the lingua franca of food — with its entrées, appetizers, aperitifs, desserts, etc. — and the French have given us much to savor. However, the modern dining experience was forged in Arabic.

Before Ziryab came along, dining was a freestyle event, even at court. People ate savory with sweet, fruit with meat, all in one big heap. Abundance, and not order, was the key to successful banquets. But our man revolutionized all that.

Perhaps his highly refined sensibilities were offended by what he saw as a feeding frenzy, or maybe he thought that different tastes should be relished individually. Whatever the reason, our gastronome extraordinaire set about to tame his peers’ eating habits by inventing the multi-course meal. To make the fine dining experience that much more exquisite, Ziryab also invented the drinking glass (fashioned out of glass and crystal).

And, to round off the complete fashion experience, this all-round man also found time to develop a new type of deodorant and invented an early form of toothpaste which became all the rage in Iberia, as well as a type of shampoo. In addition to introducing new hairstyles to the longhaired Cordobans, he also popularized shaving — perhaps foreseeing the bad press beards would get in the 21st century.

Next time you brush your teeth, don the latest fashions, enjoy a delicious three-course meal or raise a glass, don’t forget to toast, or at least spare a thought for, old Ziryab, that uncrowned Sultan of Style — and remember that Muslims have had a cool, and not just a chilling, influence on Western society.

21. When you hear something malicious about someone, keep a favorable view about him/her until you attain full knowledge about the matter. Consider others innocent until they are proven guilty with solid and truthful evidence [24/12-13]

22. Ascertain the truth of any news, lest you smite someone in ignorance and afterwards repent of what you did [49/6]

45. Correct yourself and your families first [before trying to correct others] [66/6]

46. Pardon gracefully if anyone among you who commits a bad deed out of ignorance, and then repents and amends [6/54, 3/134]

47. Divert and sublimate your anger and potentially virulent emotions to creative energy, and become a source of tranquility and comfort to people [3/134]

48. Call people to the Way of your Lord with wisdom and beautiful exhortation. Reason with them most decently [16/125]

49. Leave to themselves those who do not give any importance to the Divine code and have adopted and consider it as mere play and amusement [6/70]

50. Sit not in the company of those who ridicule Divine Law unless they engage in some other conversation [4/140]

51. Do not be jealous of those who are blessed [4/54]

52. In your collective life, make rooms for others [58/11]

53. When invited to dine, Go at the appointed time. Do not arrive too early

Yes and? Cherry picking verses are we? All of these verses have their due context. It shows how much you actually READ vs how much you CUT AND PASTE from idiot islamophobe websites.

If you read the verse prior to the one you copy pasted it goes like this:

Quote
5:44 - Indeed, We sent down the Torah, in which was guidance and light. The prophets who submitted [to Allah ] judged by it for the Jews, as did the rabbis and scholars by that with which they were entrusted of the Scripture of Allah , and they were witnesses thereto. So do not fear the people but fear Me, and do not exchange My verses for a small price. And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed - then it is those who are the disbelievers.

5:45 - And We ordained for them therein a life for a life, an eye for an eye, a nose for a nose, an ear for an ear, a tooth for a tooth, and for wounds is legal retribution. But whoever gives [up his right as] charity, it is an expiation for him. And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed - then it is those who are the wrongdoers.

5:46 - And We sent, following in their footsteps, Jesus, the son of Mary, confirming that which came before him in the Torah; and We gave him the Gospel, in which was guidance and light and confirming that which preceded it of the Torah as guidance and instruction for the righteous.

Islam is not a pacifist religion where you wear a robe and stand still while you're being slaughtered or others are being killed. It allows self-defense and instructs Muslims how to behave during war to not be like savages. Every verse advises an approach to peace rather than to war and only when absolutely inevitable and all other venues have been tried to resort to fighting and to be fierce in battle, courageous while still remaining righteous and still when in that situation to still if given the opportunity to peace to abstain from war and to seek that path to peace. Islam's ultimate goal is peace for mankind, but it does not disengage people from their God given right of self defense.

What ignorant individuals do is their own, but then it makes you no different than those ignorant individuals because it clearly shows you know nothing.

The Prophet said: Supplications (Duas) of three persons are not refused: a fasting man when breaking the fast, a just ruler, and an oppressed person, Allah's blessings be upon him.

(Abu Huraira in Tirmidhi).

Dua = supplication

Yes and? Cherry picking verses are we?

Oh, and you weren't cherry-picking verses when you posted? Or is it only cherry-picking when others use the words against Islam?


All of these verses have their due context. It shows how much you actually READ vs how much you CUT AND PASTE from idiot islamophobe websites.

Haha! Said the master of copy-pasting. You've been spamming the boards with copy-pasted bullshit for months so don't give me crap.

If you read the verse prior to the one you copy pasted it goes like this:

You can try to argue that context somehow makes things better. Except it doesn't. You are looking at the verses within your rose-colored glasses so don't be surprised if you see a rose-colored tint.


Islam is not a pacifist religion where you wear a robe and stand still while you're being slaughtered or others are being killed. It allows self-defense and instructs Muslims how to behave during war to not be like savages. Every verse advises an approach to peace rather than to war and only when absolutely inevitable and all other venues have been tried to resort to fighting and to be fierce in battle, courageous while still remaining righteous and still when in that situation to still if given the opportunity to peace to abstain from war and to seek that path to peace. Islam's ultimate goal is peace for mankind, but it does not disengage people from their God given right of self defense.

No, it's certainly not a pacifist religion, and regardless of its "goal" the facts are simple: Islam goes way beyond self-defense. Your grimoire explictly and repeatedly advocates the initiation of violence. Don't hide behind the proverbial finger that is context.


What ignorant individuals do is their own, but then it makes you no different than those ignorant individuals because it clearly shows you know nothing.

I'd roll my eyes but they're already is far back as they will go from your previous nonsense...

I am not 'cherry picking' when I am posting what the qur'an actually says.

You are cherry picking when you are not quoting the fighting verses in their context. Typical islamophobe hate where you omit the facts and want to portray Islam the way you want not the truth.

No of course you aren't. Picking the verses you like and posting those isn't cherry picking at all... Roll Eyes
