Goodbye, 2010


I still remember the night of December 31st, 2009.

I was with my sister and some friends celebrating all night, eating, making fools of ourselves, playing games.

It feels like it was only yesterday.

Time passed by, too fast.

As I put this year in retrospect, I see that I have emerged in to a different young man.

2010 was a year of growth. 2010 was a year of experience. 2010 was a year of change. 2010 was a year, that I will never forget.

I wish I documented it all, but for some reason, once I began to TRULY change- I stopped my journal entries. My last entry was on March 18th, 2010, and the last sentence read: "What if I don't want this to be my destiny?"

It's as if that night of March 18th was when I changed, as if I felt something THAT night, felt an urge for wisdom, maturity, change. This feeling of urgency, that I don't remember, but have my journal to remember it for me.

EXACTLY ONE MONTH later, I started this blog, Truth from a Teen, on April 18th, 2010. I began to develop strong opinions and a will to strive for my voice, and therefore my teacher recommended I start a blog- and thanks to him, I did. This blog has made me realize what I want from this world.

Soon, I decided I would run for President of my school's Student Body. Of course, it was quite a challenge, as it was my freshman year of high school and I was running against two seniors. The decision was a tough one to make - I would either make a fool of myself or make myself known to the entire school.

Thankfully, I won.

The moment I stepped in front of the podium in front of hundreds of students and said my first words of my speech, "Who is Aadil Malik?", everyone to my astonishment began to cheer, jump, yell with astonishment of their own. It was one of the most amazing moments of my life so far.

I went from being a shy, dull kid to a self-confident, willing young man. A will, inspired by something I was too afraid to recognize back then. A will, inspired by time. The aspect of time had baffled me- I had experienced over a dozen deaths, over a dozen car accidents, yet amidst it all, I didn't realize how quick life was going. Every day went by quicker and quicker, more struggles, more experiences, more mistakes to learn from.

Yet, I lived through every moment of it.

This blog has taught me so much about myself and the world I am living in, and the years that make me realize how long I have left to fulfill my will.

2010 was a year that changed who I am, who I want to be, and made me realize that I didn't need to change my destiny on the night of March 18th, but my willpower.


You know, they say a new year means a new beginning. 

But...

I just wish this beginning, never ends.

-That's the TFAT. Happy New Year!

I would like to thank some people in particular this New Year:
Thank you, Mama and Daddy, for always giving me support and motivating me to become who I am and who I want to be in the future.
Thank you, Mr. Schneider, for influencing me to create Truth from a Teen.
Thank you, Faisal and Arslan, for being my best friends and keeping me sane.
Thank you, Facebook fans, because without your support I would be lost today.
Thank you, "Fikiriatu" (lol), for your support and the idea to do this blog post.
Thank you, Jacob "Yacoob (lol)"L., Erik, Sidra, Carrie, Jeana, Julia, Ian, Hassan, Ursalla, Uncle Jamal, Amier, Rabia, Umara, Madie, Amina, Megan, Dan, Ahson-- everyone who has showed even an atom's weight of support in what I do. 
Thank you, Boonaa Mohammed, Uncle Zia Rahman, Zain Bhikha, and more for your inspiration.

And last, but definitely not least, Thank you, ALLAH, for granting me knowledge when I asked for it, wisdom when I needed it, and experience when I went astray.

Goodbye, 2010!

UPDATE: Boot Islam: A Blog Preaching Violence

UPDATE: The blog that I sent WordPress an email about has been immediately deleted. I am very happy with the immediate response by WP, if only Facebook had done the same thing with the Burn Koran situation...


I guess WordPress is simply smarter. Congrats, and I thank all those who joined in the effort to end it!

"Boot Islam": A Blog Preaching to Kill Innocent Muslims

Recently, I read a Facebook "note" regarding CAIR's Action Alert about a hostile blog post advocating KILLING innocent Muslims, so I decided to send a letter to WordPress, the hosting site of the blog:
To Whom It May Concern:
My name is Aadil Malik, and I'm a fifteen-year old blogger in Pennsylvania.
Recently, I have been alerted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations regarding a blog hosted using WordPress.com, that violates your Terms of Service, as it "incites violence towards individuals or entities".
The blog contains posts that advocate burning mosques, making false bomb threats implicating Muslims, desecrating Muslim graves, and recommending the “proper way to shoot a muslim [sic]".
The blog is located at: http://bootislam.wordpress.com/.
I personally host a blog on Blogspot called Truth from a Teen (www.truthfromateen.blogspot.com) and know several WordPress bloggers. As a matter of fact, they have claimed that they will delete their WordPress accounts if this matter doesn't get settled.
I understand that you do not delete "generally offensive" posts- however, this particular blog is hosting a hostile environment. In fact, In a post headlined “Burning Mosques – A lovely idea,” the blog’s author writes: “What else could an infidel want? Watching your local mosque, or, any mosque for that matter burning should gladden our hearts. I sincerely hope the 911 mosque joins that parade. Maybe we should get stickers ‘Beautify America – Burn a mosque!’”
One comment on that post states: “There was a nice attempt to burn a mosque in Oregon – after the FBI sting. Perhaps we will see more of this in the future. Let us pray.”
Now, you also state in the Abuse section of your site that we should contact the Blogger directly- which I will do maybe tomorrow. I will possibly even email you the results.
There is no simpler way to put it, than to say that this blog needs to be deleted immediately, as it is a direct call for violence- and should be treated with no bias and/or prejudice. The blogger is simply violating your Terms of Service to a hostile extent.
Please review this subject immediately.
Thank you,
Aadil Malik
www.truthfromateen.blogspot.com

I'll keep you all updated on my efforts.

Learning Patience

Patience (n.)
1. good-natured tolerance of delay or incompetence
2. solitaire: a card game played by one person



Religiously, I was taught patience by reading the Holy Qur'an and praying Salah (daily prayer). The Qur'an's meaning isn't the only thing that contributes to this education, but the pace at which I read it. I read it in Arabic, a language that I am slow-paced at reading, as well as ignorant of it's meaning. After reading it, I often read the translation of it.

The process of reading the Qur'an for me personally is often frustrating (because of the fact that I'm slow and don't understand it)- but once I understand why I'm doing it, I learn to be patient. I make a mistake with pronouncing almost every other word or so, but have learned to continue.

This has led ME to be patient. Although I still haven't finished reading the entire Qur'an, and although my sisters finished it at a way younger age then I envision I will - I have STILL benefited from it.

We are a society of many different cultures and religions, and patience is a virtue we MUST all portray. Patience is the mother to tolerance, [self] respect, and wisdom. However, it is an aspect of life that is learned by everybody in a unique way.

The only solution to learning it that I can possibly give you is through inspiring you.

My Dad told me a story when I was younger, of a Muslim couple who inspired me to become more patient. I thought I would share it to you all as well. I don't know where it's referenced from, or word from word, but here it is:

It was a hot day, and the Dad was tired of doing so much work throughout the entire day. He laid down for a rest, and called his wife over to ask her for water. The wife immediately came to his call. He said, "Wife, will you please get me a glass of water?" The wife replied, "Yes." She went to get some water, and came back some minutes later to see her husband had suddenly fallen asleep. She didn't want to wake him up, nor did she want him to remain thirsty. So, she waited, and stood there for several long hours, with the glass of water in hand, patiently. The husband awoke after a very long nap, to see his wife in front of him with a glass of water in hand. "What are you doing here, wife?", he asked. She replied, "I waited and didn't want to disturb you, here's your glass of water."

This story teaches us that patience is the key to wisdom, knowledge, respect, tolerance, happiness- and every other virtue known to man. Whether it's through experience or sorrow, one must learn how and when to be patient.

Brothers and sisters, elders and kids, please - learn to be patient. It is the key solution, to almost all of our society's problems.

I personally will continue to strive for it, and believe you should to.

-That's the TFAT.

Fictional Truth




Is there such thing as fictional truth?

The concept of fictional truth is indeed paradoxical and/or contradictory, however, this doesn't mean that it does not exist. It is a concept tackled by many, but recognized by only some.

Gregory Currie, a Professor of Philosophy and Dean of the Faculty of Arts at the University of Nottingham wrote a paper about the evaluation and interpretation of fictional truth in literary works (1985-New Zealand). He describes fictional truth in the notion of how truth can be derived from fictional works.

Dimitria Electra Gatzia, an assistant professor of Philosophy at the University of Akron is in progress of writing a paper about the concept of fictional truth, using Currie's claims:
"Anyone who has read Pride and Prejudice would agree that Mr. Darcy asks Elizabeth to marry him. The statement ‘Mr. Darcy proposes to Elisabeth’ is thus true in Jane Austen’s story. The relevant passages in the book confirm this. It is a simple matter to apply the notion of truth to fictional statements. It is not so simple, however, to explain what makes something fictionally true. Is something true, for example, if it is not stated explicitly in the story? The best way to settle this question is to attempt to give truth conditions for statements of the form ‘In F, P’. Currie (1986) offers a set of necessary and sufficient conditions for statements of this form. His account is motivated by the fact that to “say that P is fictionally true is just to say that it is part of some story F, that P” (p. 196). In “Truth and Inference in Fiction”, Phillips (1997) argues that Currie’s (1986) account of fictional truth is inadequate because it requires that we posit a fictional author. He then proposes an account of fictional truth that resembles Currie’s but which does not require positing a fictional author. We agree with Phillips that Currie’s proposal is problematic, but argue that Phillips’ is too. We then propose another variation of Currie’s account that avoids the problems his own version faces and which fares better than Phillips’."
"It is a simple matter to apply the notion of truth to fictional statements." This sentence defines applying truth to fiction.

Now, obviously, being a fifteen-year old student in High School, I am not as accountable or reliable as someone like Gatzia, who holds a PhD degree. Albeit I do render my own opinions, they are reinforced by more accountable sources.

Therefore, in my poem Truth/from/a/Teen, I stated in the first stanza:
Truth/using fact and fiction.
One can find truth using fiction. It's just one of those things that is said easier, than done.

In my perception, the concept of fictional truth is an allegory of how one can not reach perfection- and that even the truth, can be derived from the lie.

EDIT
It was pointed out to me by the person this post was dedicated to, that indeed, I failed to describe in detail my OWN opinion. I left a comment back to the person in the comments section, but I decided it needed to be posted in the post itself. Here it is:

"...I do appreciate your remarks, as they made me realize that in fact- I did not fully describe MY OWN opinion. You are most definitely right. 
A main reason I didn't state my opinion first as a matter of fact was because my senses were telling me that no one would believe me. That's why I relied on more accountable sources. Yet, my voice was hidden by the majority of them. 
The last sentence of your comment is something I should say: I wish I had time to write more. In the last sentence of my blog, I state my opinion. However, I fail to describe it [in detail]. 
At first, I used to fail to reinforce my opinions using sources, and with this post, I failed to describe MY opinion. You have made me realize that I need to balance these out.
With that said, here is MY opinion DESCRIBED IN DETAIL, about fictional truth:
Fictional truth can exist, but only in literary terms. This means, that fictional truth may not exist in actions, but in words. It is yet another aspect that makes words unique. In order to show HOW it exists, one can only give examples. In my case, I derive the truth from lies/fictional work. For example, John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men is a piece of fictional work, but I can find an aspect of truth from it. The truth is Lennie is killed by George. This is fictional truth, because it is the truth derived from a work of fiction. 
Fiction, in essence, does not mean fake. The term fiction in my context, is what it truly means- a literary work using imagination. 
Also, fact is not the same thing as truth, although similar. Truth is a fact that can be verified. Verified by what? Fact can be verified by fact OR fiction. And how? Using words. 
Fictional truth proves that contradiction and paradox, allows one to realize that perfection is out of reach, because even the FACT, relies on fiction..."


You tell me.
-That's the TFAT

The Reason for Change

As we near a new year, I am deciding to change my blog. 

After studying your comments and reviews, I have realized that I have been hosting to some: an arrogant and wrongly-biased tone, and to others- truthful and honest. 

I have made a mission to spread truth to ALL. And I will continue to fight for the success of that mission.

Arrogant is a harsh word, and even though I've never been called it- I understand why some of you leave the comments the way you do. Now, you do exercise your right to freedom of speech, as harsh or argumentative as you can be, but I want you all to understand that words on a screen the way I read them, are different than the way YOU read them. Many of you know me personally and maybe know my tone. But for the others who view my blog from different states, continents, cities, and countries- you have not yet CAPTURED my tone. My intent cannot be summed up in a sentence, nor can my tone/emotion. 

The reason I am deciding to change the way I blog is because, well, change is sometimes a good thing.

I will report my sources- not because of the risk of plagiarism, but to reinforce my opinions with factual information.

I will continue talk about a broad topic- but using more specifics. 

I will make an even bigger effort to include other voices.

I will not only state a problem, but state a proposed solution.

I will continue to spread words of truth, but at a less harmful bias than I have possibly portrayed in the past.

And most of all- I will make sure my point makes the best of sense, to all audiences.

Thank you all for your constant support.





Truth/from/a/Teen



Truth
Using fact and fiction.
Using wisdom and knowledge,
Coupled with opinions.
Not reality,
Actuality.


From
A confused source,
yet reliable.
Societal.
Capable of change,
through voice.


A
One,
Unique, yet
Irrelevant and common
Just like the rest.
Own.


Teen
Struggling in a troublesome American society,
Fighting hypocrisy 
With himself,
Through himself,
By himself.


This is not your average blog, this is something different.


*On a side note, Happy Holidays everybody!

Solution: A "Found" Poem

In my Writing class, we are drafting "Found" poetry derived from our journals. Found poetry is a type of poetry created by taking words, phrases, and sometimes whole passages from other sources and reframing them as poetry by making changes in spacing and/or lines (and consequently meaning), or by altering the text by additions and/or deletions.

I decided to take phrases from my blog and rearrange them to create a poem. The result, is this, my mission of TFAT, what TFAT was created for - something really deep. I hope you find your own meaning from this poem.

Solution
There is a way to be good.
It's true.
It's about something bigger.
Understand, understand, understand.
This fact has been forgotten.

You can do it.
Opportunity is in your hands, plan your life, and I promise it will be worth it.
Just stop. Enjoy your life, don't ruin it.

I aspire to inspire you: to create a graceful and wise generation, willing to fight for the straight path to success.
And I will.
But that makes me wonder.
I don't understand how ruining your life is cool.
I'm promoting respect for humanity.


It’s the epitome of absurdity, seeds of utter, inhumane STUPIDITY.
A criminal is a criminal.
A murderer is a murderer.
A terrorist is a terrorist.

They are claiming that these are acts of love.
What will their acts of hatred come out to be?

Because of their ignorance, I am forced to fight bigotry.
An eye for an eye makes the entire world blind.
Lunacy will always exist even if unity is more apparent.

There is an evident problem with our current society, and it's being pessimistic.
Smile.
Leave it at that.
You shouldn't only dream, because they will lead you to become overconfident; instead set goals, because they will leave you successful.
Continue to seek the truth.

Please, just find a better solution.

Maybe you should realize that in today's troubled society, it is the easiest answer.
I know.

Do actions speak louder than words?


Actions may speak louder than words, but words speak STRONGER than actions.

A wise man once told me, that whoever is in an altercation, and the other person speaks louder than you do, you have won the fight. Once a person begins to yell, he has lost his mind, and his intelligence.

Does loudness matter? I understand it's an idiom, but let's think of the statement LITERALLY. Does loudness win a fight? Are fights determined by whoever is the loudest? No. Just like people say, "I'm so tired, it's not even funny", when was it funny in the first place? When people tell you that actions speak louder than words, ask them, "When does loudness determine a winner in a fight?"

It's true. The quietest one is the winner, because he isn't tense, and in the end, he always gets it his way. This is because knowledge talks. But wisdom? Wisdom listens.

The strength of ones words aren't dependent on sound, but dependent on three things:

Vocabulary
Wisdom
Self-Confidence

The one who punches, is the one who gives up. The one who uses vocabulary, proves a point. Our society, our youth needs to understand this fact. It isn't only about ending violence - we've heard that too much. It's about something bigger. It's about being wise, and intelligent. If we fought with words and wisdom, we will be helping one another, and coming to a solution.

What does punching someone in the face prove? What does "jumping" someone prove? 

The answer is not because: "Actions speak louder than words".

There is no answer, because it doesn't prove ANYTHING. Words prove solutions. 

You might be asking, "What about good actions?". Good actions ARE WORDS. Think about it. Everything relies on WORDS. Actually, EVERYTHING IS A WORD! 

Understand, understand, understand. Words.

-That's the TFAT.

Fresh start to a new beginning, a new ad, a new layout! Sounds so exciting!

What do you think? (Mind the horrible formatting):

Would you wear it?

I try to make TFAT as innovative as possible, and without your support, I wouldn't be here right now.

I designed (roughly) a t-shirt for TFAT, but they aren't for sale.. YET. Only because I don't know if I have interested customers.

Therefore, I have only made samples to ask you:

Would you wear this shirt? 

Front of T-Shirt.

The Problem with our Society


I've been studying what I want to do with my life in the past couple of days, career-wise, and I'm stuck on the fact that I want to do EVERYTHING - which, many of you know, is common. I've been taking the career tests, analyzing my personality, doing basically everything I can to get to know me. It may sound ridiculous (sarcasm), but the results are coming up looking like this:

Law
Political Science
Sociology
Criminal Justice
Human Resources
Journalism
Writing/Editing
Education
Health Science/Psychology
Communications/Media
Art/Design

Now, I've bolded all of the one's I've considered throughout the past years. Yes, all of them. 

I love law and political science because I've always held the dream of becoming a mayor or even President of the United States. I love sociology, which is evident with the creation of this blog (if you haven't already noticed, TFAT is a study of society). Again, same thing basically with law, I love Criminal Justice. I love applying to jobs for my Dad, which is an awkward hobby I know, but I honestly find it enjoyable. That's why I always wanted to open a Human Resources firm for Employment. More careers that are evident with the creation of this blog - Journalism and Writing/Editing. For the longest time, I wanted to become a Health Ed. teacher or a Professor of Psychology. I love talking and reporting information - which is revealed in the Communications career. And last but not least, I'm a amateur graphic/web designer. I do simple work like make advertisements and signs for little to no pay, as a hobby.

Now, today I have come up with a solution. And if there is anyone else out there just like me, who can't figure out their career because they feel the need to do everything, I promise you, I have a solution to all your problems. 

You can do it. It's true. It isn't fake optimism, or sucking up, it's the clear, evident truth. You can do it all.

I don't care if you are failing high school, or an unemployed 42 year old. You can do it. 

There is an evident problem with our current society, and it's being pessimistic. We think we can't do stuff only because it requires effort. In fact, EFFORT is the only thing that keeps you away from being an A+ student in school from a F- student. Seriously. We are lazy. And because of our laziness, we are unsuccessful.

Opportunity is in your hands, plan your life, and I promise it will be worth it. 

I plan on studying Psychology, Sociology. I plan on going on the news. I plan on blogging. I plan on becoming an author. I plan on opening a Human Resources firm. I plan on continuing my hobby of building web sites and amateur graphic designing. I plan on teaching. I plan on becoming a Mayor. And I will.

Because my father told me right - you shouldn't only dream, because they will lead you to become overconfident; instead set goals, because they will leave you successful.

-That's the TFAT.

Theory Poll Results

The results are in with a sum of 22 votes:

The Well-Oiled Machine Theory: 
31% (7 votes)

The Escape of the Bottomless Pit Theory: 
68% (15 votes)

And now the moment you have all been waiting for (yes, you have :P), which one did I write? (Drumroll) Some of you guessed right, because yes, I wrote the "Escape of the Bottomless Pit Theory"! 

The other author was written by another student from another city. Two different opinions, two different styles of writing. 

Now, I do agree with both theories. However, the reason I did the post was to see if you agree with TFAT (me) or agree with other opinions. I wanted to see if you really think Truth from a Teen, is really the TRUTH. So, I tested you. And I got results proving that I have to step up my game. 

I purposely wrote the Bottomless Pit using bias, so I could get results like these. This test will help me improve my blogging.

In essence, thanks! And continue to seek the truth!

-That's the TFAT.

The Toughest Job on Earth


To me, the toughest/hardest job on Earth is being a Substitute Teacher. Many students need to understand that a substitute is a TEACHER, and deserves to be treated the same respectful way as their normal teacher. However, most do not, which leads to extreme disobedience and disrespect.

Therefore, on behalf of all students who have misbehaved/disrespected a substitute teacher, I have decided to write a letter of apology to all of them:

Dear ALL Substitute Teachers,
Words cannot express how difficult it is to sit in a classroom where you are ridiculed by my fellow students. And I know I have done it before, but now I understand the difficulty of your job and the rudeness you have to endure.
If I put myself in your shoes, not only would they not fit me, but I would feel SO uncomfortable. Honestly, you deserve a higher salary than anyone else in the world, for your ability to cooperate with us.
Some of you ARE miserable, and a bit peculiar - but I'm sure you guys aren't like that in the "real world". You are only like that because of the hatred and disrespect we have caused you. If we approached you in a nicer, more respectful manner, we would get to know the real you, and you would get to know the real us.
The only reason we think you guys have miserable personalities is because that's the only way we see you. Some subs aren't miserable, because we treat them with respect - even though we don't know how to.
Often, the reason we disrespect you is, ignorantly, because of the way you appear to us. The way you dress, your age, your voice- all make a HUGE difference on how we percieve you. Don't take this the wrong way, I'm being honest. We stereotype you because we're just SO used to doing it to our fellow students. 
Therefore, from the bottom of my heart, I sincerely apologize to all of you. Next time, cheer up, and know that there is at least one student in the classroom that understands your endurance, and your difficult job. Smile.
Sincerely,
Me, A Student
So next time, show respect, and not disrespect.

You tell me.

-That's the TFAT.

The Well-Oiled Bottomless Pit Machine

My friend and I had two different theories regarding the cause, analysis, and evaluation of the state of our economy. In this innovative TFAT blog post, we ask you to read our different intellectual theories, and choose the one you support. If in fact you don't agree with any, comment your own theory. You can also guess which one I wrote, and I will announce if you get it right or not next week.
Two different people, two different ideas - one topic: 
MONEY.
Which idea do you support?

To answer this question, you can either comment, or enter the poll on the top right of the page!

Idea #1: “The Well-Oiled Machine” Theory (An Intellectual Evaluation):
Money goes in a cycle which I like to call the cycle of greed. Money moves in a way which it acts as if it is borrowed then lent to the next person in the cycle, but there are breaks in this cycle, as a matter of fact there are two breaks: inflation, and recession.
Inflation is when too much money enters the cycle and recession is when too much money leaves the cycle, and both are bad. First off, the cycle is a method of each human borrowing money from another and then lending it to another being. For example, when a farmer sells his cow to another man for five hundred dollars, that farmer will use that money for another necessity that he and his family will need such as clothing or shelter. The cycle should run like a well-oiled machine. This machine could be easily broken if too much oil is added or too little oil is added. Money should be used only on necessities.
When breaking a cycle, everything becomes corrupt. If that farmer uses the money that he earned from selling a necessity on something that is not a necessity, then he has wasted his money. Using money on entertainment is an example wasting money. That farmer has taken money out of the necessity cycle, which is the most important for survival, and added the money into funds that are not important for survival. Therefore, he has wasted his money. Yet, not only one man can damage a cycle. The more people who waste their money on non-survival gains, the more money is lost, which leads to a recession. Too much money leaves the cycle and now people will be either in dept or a deflation of money will occur.
A deflation is a very rare occasion, the price of money will become more than what it really is, i.e., a U.S. one dollar bill could become the price of twelve dollars.The deflation will make people restart barter trading. Money will be so hard to get, that people will start to trade necessities with other necessities in the strive for survival. On the other hand if too much oil is added to the well-oiled machine then another situation occurs.
When too much money is added to the cycle, inflation of money occurs. If the farmer sold his cow for an over-priced amount, money is added to the cycle. If this keeps occurring then the price of money is not as much as it was before. People will have so much of it that they can spend that money easily on necessities, after this inflation has occurred and has been in effect for years, the price of money will drop dramatically. The price of a U.S. Dollar could become the price of twelve cents.
In conclusion, humans as a group should use their money earned only on necessities, unless too much money enters the cycle. In this case, people should spend money on non-necessity funds. 
There should be an equal balance of intake, release, and movement in this well-oiled machine.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Idea #2: “The Escape of the Bottomless Pit” Theory (An Intellectual Analysis):
When people say, “Money grows on trees”, I ask them, “Are those trees made of pennies”? Frugality is the epitome of absurdity. Our society has become illogically dependent on our economy, that we have sadly become the cause of it’s downfall.
We are constantly in the bottomless pit of blaming politicians and government officials for the creation of this recession. However, if we don’t understand that we are the creator ourselves, then we will never - ever get ourselves out of this pit. People have become infested by the societal creation of conspiracies surrounding everything on Earth. If you are unemployed, you should thank your fellow citizens for their frugality. The reason people are suffering from this recession is because they are becoming frugal every moment. If every person was to go outside and spend all the money they had left right now, the economy would boost over the horizon. As small businesses would receive this money, they would feel more needy to hire new employees. These employees would raise even more money, creating a “Utopian economy”. 
Therefore, the first step to getting out of a bottomless pit is to catch a hold. By grasping a hold of this theory, people will stop continuing to fall. After the theory sets into there brains, people will have to start climbing up. This period of climbing will consist of these steps: First, spending money. Second, employers hiring because of the huge clientele. Third, employees will raise money, and continue to spend it.
Money is created to spend. If it was created to save, then God would have probably made us live forever. When you die, only two things go to the grave with you: your knowledge, and the wealth that you spend in this world. The money you save doesn’t go with you, it stays behind for your generations to enjoy. True, you should spend money on good things like charities and funds - but what if you are the one who is in need of the funds?
In order to be able to escape from the bottomless pit of a horrible economy, we should stop being so frugal, and be more independent in a way where we help the economy, not destruct it by depending on it to run itself.
It may be tough to understand in the beginning, but that is only because our minds are infected with being frugal to save money. Just ask yourself this, “If I don’t have money, then how will I spend it?” In order to save money, one has to make it. And when you are in a horrible economy like today, you won’t make it unless you spend the money you have. That’s the simplest way to put it.
A utopia is impossible, but a Utopian economy?- only if we grow the right money tree.

Why Burn a Koran? Another Conversation with a Member of DWOC


As you can see, I have been following the "Burn Koran" campaign for over a month now, collecting information that proves it isn't an act of Christianity, but an act of hatred and intolerance.

I've been actively having conversations and debates with people who go to the Dove World Outreach Center church and plan to burn the Koran. Some of them don't reply, some of them do. I've emailed the Honorable Pope Benedict XVI to see if this was permissible- he must have been busy so I didn't get a reply. I don't blame him. I also e-mailed the Governor of Florida, Charlie Crist. I anticipated (and still do anticipate) a reply from one of his assistants (at least), but I guess the matter didn't concern him. I also sent a letter to Rick Sanchez, of CNN's Rick's List, who interviewed Senior Pastor of DWOC, Terry Jones. I informed him of the efforts being made on our very own, "In Protest of International Burn a Koran Day" page on Facebook. I don't expect a reply from him, but I do hope someone was in reciept of my letter.



A couple of days ago, Mr. Wayne Sapp, Pastor and Host of the Burn Koran Day, posted a video on YouTube "challenging" us to give him reasons to not burn the Koran. Is he serious? Or is he insane? HOW MANY, HOW MANY reasons have we given him!? It is complete and utter ignorance that he disregards the fact that we have given him millions of reasons to not burn the Koran. He is asking for verses from the Bible and the Koran that say to be tolerance and promote coexistence. Easy.

But first, here is conversation I had with "J.L", which started from her posting that there is ONLY forgiveness through Jesus, again and again on our Protest page:
Me: Through Allah there is also forgiveness. How about you let me practice my religion and you practice yours. You'll never convert, and nor will I. I'll say it again: NOR WILL I! The only way you can make a person convert is through peace, tolerance, and knowledge. Three things you sadly lack. We WANT to create peace with you, but you want to create hatred. I really wish we could just all be friends, but you're pounding hatred on everybody. Tell me: how many people have you converted by doing this? Hmm? How many have YOU converted? From one religion to another, how many? If there is tolerance in YOU, then you would let the Mayor and Islam be. But you have ZERO tolerance. And nobody listens to an intolerant person. I love Christianity, I love Catholicism, I love Judaism, Hinduism, Islam- I LOVE RELIGION, and I love Jesus, Muhammad, Allah. And do you know what you love? You love Terry Jones. You love DWOC. And there is nothing wrong with that- but don't say you love Jesus, because a person as intolerant, hateful, and unwise as you doesn't love religion or any religious figures. I'm sorry. I apologize all the hurt 'Radical Islam' has caused you. But please, PLEASE!- Don't create a 'radical Christianity'. Thank you so much for your time. Peace and love: Aadil.
J.L:  Thanks for your mail- you seem like a nice guy-I don't have a problem with you! I see that we will never agree- and that is fine. As I was in Germany for 2 years- I talked to hundreds of Muslims everyday and preached to them about Jesus - Many of them got saved and converted to Christianity. Many did not though- because they have been afraid to do so because they have been threatened in the name of ALLAH / ISLAM with death threats.. etc... Do you know how many horror stories I have heard about abuse and violence in the name of Islam? I have seen so much oppression and violence from Islam while I was in Germany. Do you know how many death threats I have gotten in the name of ALLAH and ISLAM? What about all of that violence and oppression? What about all of the death threats I have gotten? Yes, I love DWOC and DR. Terry Jones. That is my church and my pastor- and that is the side that I have chosen to stand on. I love Jesus. I believe that he is the son of God and that he died on the cross for our sins- that he was raised to life on the third day- and that he is alive. I do believe that without repentance and forgiveness - and salvation through Jesus Christ you will go to hell.
As for the" hate speech" for Mayor Lowe- You can tell him- that is fine. If I would have the chance to tell him so in person I would do this. You didn't respond to this point about homosexuality and punishment of death under Sharia Law. Sharia Law is EVIL. It wants to kill anything and everything that doesn't line up with Islam. I have a problem being peaceful and tolerant when so many people are dying and going to hell. I have a problem being peaceful and tolerant while people are being killed, abused, beaten and mistreated in the name of ALLAH and ISLAM. I have a problem being peaceful and tolerant to other religions that point to salvation outside of JESUS CHRIST. If you have some valid reasons about all of my questions and concerns about Islam and Sharia Law- please let me know- I am curious to hear about this from such of a "peaceful" Muslim.
Thanks and be blessed!
Me:  I most certainly do have an answer. Sharia law is not enlisted in the Qu'ran. It is a system that was created centuries ago. It is TRUE that it was founded BASED on the words of the Qu'ran, but this does not mean that the schools which invented it also didn't have a misconception. I don't follow what is BASED on the Qu'ran, I follow the Qu'ran itself. You tell me one verse that says "Follow Sharia Law". And the verses you'll bring up will be only verses of what you say is violence - which is okay. It is a common misconception. Let me explain:

2.191: And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out; for Persecution is worse than slaughter; but fight them not at the Sacred Mosque, unless they (first) fight you there; but if they fight you, slay them. Such is the reward of those who reject faith.

Watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qzN09ck-DTU
Conspiracies like is what invoked what you call "Radical" Islam or Islamic "Extremism". Radical Muslims in Iraq felt that America was attacking Islam, so they followed this verse. The verse in short basically says: "Defend yourself only if you are attacked. And only do back what they have done to you." So now here goes American troops, fighting a War on Terror, killing terrorists. To me, there is nothing wrong with that. But to radical Muslims in Iraq, they thought it was a war on Islam, rather than a War on Terrorism. So when troops killed one of them, they killed one of the troops. It was a cycle of wrong perception.

This verse isn't a "direct call for violence". It is a call for defense and justice. "Slaying" doesn't always mean "kill". It can mean fight. And people don't have to always fight using actions. They can fight using words -

2.190: Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loveth not transgressors.

By "transgressing" limits, this verse means: Do not do more harm than one has done to you. - Which means justice, fairness, and equality.

2.192 But if they cease, Allah (God) is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

So there you go. Islam is about rejecting violence, and promoting justice, fairness, equality, and forgiveness.

And I'm sorry if people like who you call "Radical Muslims" have gave you a bad perception about Islam, Muslims, and the Holy Qu'ran - but PLEASE do not burn our Holy Book. It isn't even a solution- it's actually a problem. A solution would be to read a Qu'ran. A solution would be to spread Bibles. A solution would be to talk to a Muslim. A solution would be to TRULY stand up, and preach the Bible, and not "Islam is of the Devil".

I have a Bible in my house. It's from 1896. It's called the "Self Interpreting Bible Vol. 3., Isaiah-Malachi. I found it in the trash of a Christian home, might I add. I didn't burn it, trash it, or disregard it. I gave a good place in my home. I read it.

You? You simply burn Holy Books, thinking it will be a solution to end brutality. To end brutality ma'am, you need to fight with words, not actions - because if you fight with action, you will become brutal, and you will become a hypocrite.

Please, find a better solution.

Thank you so much for your time. Peace,

Aadil.
J.L:  Hi, Thanks again for your mail and reply. I have just one thought for you and I would appreciate this if you would take a moment and look at this. What I am saying is TRUE!! That JESUS CHRIST is the SON of God and that he was crucified on the cross and was raised from the dead on the third day. The sacrifice of his blood and the power of his resurrection forgives our sins, gives us hope and eternal life. Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to be saved. What if the Koran is a lie- and leading you to hell? What if you died tonight and had to stand before God- what would you say? How would you justify your life on this earth? I will NEVER convert to Islam because it denies the fact that Jesus Christ was the son of God, that he was crucified on the cross that he was raised from the dead- and that he is alive RIGHT NOW... To heal, to save, to forgive. This is the Gospel- this is the power of Jesus Christ. It is by the GRACE of JESUS CHRIST that you are saved - not by your own works.
How will this affect you and your eternity? I am not here to hate or to judge- but I speak the truth! Thanks again.
Me:  Sorry I couldn't reply sooner; I was very sick the past few days.
I looked at what you said.

OK.

You believe that you are true. I believe I am true.

Have you seen the movie Zeitgeist? Here is a part of it. I believe you would find it very informational. You should show it to your friends too, it will change their minds.

This is about 9/11 isn't it? You think Muslims were responsible for the acts of 9/11? Just like you repeatedly say "It's been proven many times that the Islam is of the Devil", I say: "It's been proven many times that 9/11 was an INSIDE JOB."

What if I asked YOU the same rhetorical question? What if the Bible is a lie- what would you say to Allah? How would you justify your life on this Earth? I know your answer! YOU WON'T - because you believe the Bible is the truth! Because currently you are a bigot thinking what you say is true. I'm a bigot too because I believe I am true. Mind as well call Jews, Hindus, etc. bigots too because they believe they are true.

All that doesn't matter.

And BY THE WAY, you asked me a question- I answered it. I wasn't trying to convert you to Islam, you're trying to convert me to your religion.

What matters is you are doing a HUGE dishonor to your fellow Christians all over the world by burning a Qu'ran. What matters is you are fulfilling in acts of disrespect. What matters is, millions of people around the world want to create peace, and your "Church" is stuck up on their disrespect.

If what you are saying is the truth than why doesn't EVERYONE just convert to your religion, huh? It's because they have their own beliefs, and YOU ma'am, will have to learn to tolerate them.

You shall have YOUR religion, and I shall have MINE. Read it until you understand it.
J.L:  Hi, Thanks for the reply. Sorry to hear that you were sick- I hope all is well with you. My stand against Islam is not all about 9/11. As I have said before- I have seen and experienced Islam and heard many horror stories from Muslim women- from Iraq, Iran.. etc..during my last 2 years in Germany and Europe. I have read the Koran... and to be honest- It does nothing for me. I find and feel no compassion, grace, mercy , or hope from Allah. When I speak about Christianity I am not just talking about religion. I am talking about JESUS. I have experienced true salvation, forgiveness and healing- I know what the Bible says and I have experienced this too. You can call me what you want and label me how you wish- but this is what I believe and am willing to put my life on.
Me:  Thank you.

If your stand "against" Islam is not about 9/11 than why are you burning my Holy Book which I hold sacred ON September 11th?

Sure, it is delightful that you love your religion and Jesus so much that you are even putting your life on the line - that is absolutely inspiring.

What isn't delightful is that you are disrespecting my religion.

I'm sorry that reading the Qu'ran hasn't "done anything" for you. But that doesn't mean it hasn't done anything else for the millions of Muslims around the world. Don't be selfish. Don't be hateful.

Don't burn the Qu'ran. Please.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And no more replies after this. If the fact that it is disrespectful to burn a Holy Book isn't an adequate reason for Wayne Sapp, than what is?

You want verses? Here's one that similar to the Qu'ran verse I stated in the conversation I had with J.L (2.191)
"Do to others as you would have them do to you." -Luke 6.31
Wayne Sapp said in his video that there isn't any hope for forgiveness in the Qu'ran. That is like me saying their is no hope in the Bible because of Mark 3.29 (Whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit can never have forgiveness), when there is hope. I guess he hasn't read the whole Qu'ran, because in almost every chapter of the Qu'ran it says that Allah is Oft-Forgiving. Yes, it does say that those who annoy Allah and His Messenger have a humiliating punishment. Because those who annoy Allah are those who haven't asked for forgiveness.
"For Muslim men and women, - for believing men and women, for devout men and women, for true men and women, for men and women who are patient and constant, for men and women who humble themselves, for men and women who give in charity, for men and women who fast, for men and women who guard their chastity, and for men and women who engage much in Allah's remembrance - for them has Allah prepared forgiveness and great reward. - Al-Ahzab 33.35
Have I proven you wrong? Yes.

You say that the Bible allows you to burn Holy Books? Your enemy is Islam right?:

"Love your enemies, do good for those who hate you, bless those who curse you, PRAY for those who abuse you. From anyone who takes away your coat do not withhold even your shirt. Give to everyone who begs from you; and if anyone takes your goods, do not ask for them again." -Luke 6.27-30
"Love one another as I have loved you." -John 15.12

You hate Islam? But the Bible tells you to love. Fire never means love, or else heaven would be hell.

I've said this once, and I'll say it twice. On behalf of the true Muslim community, I apologize all the death threats you have received. Wishing death upon someone is against Islam. Killing someone is against Islam. You know what else is against Islam? Not defending for what you believe in. This is a misconception by many Muslims around the world and even Christians. We have to defend what we believe in, but we can not transgress LIMITS. Some Muslims need to understand this limit, and Christians do as well. It does say in the Qu'ran to fight - but this doesn't mean kill- that is transgressing limits - ESPECIALLY suicide (Holy Qu'ran 4:29). That is extremism. That is "Radical". And now DWOC wants to create a "Radical" Christianity.


They are claiming that these ARE acts of love. But that makes me wonder. What will their act of hatred come out to be?

You tell me.

Who agrees to Burn the Koran? Certainly not Mayor Lowe of Gainesville!

 A Photo Outside of Dove World Outreach Center

I sent an e-mail a few days ago to both Mayor Craig Lowe of Gainesville, FL, and to the pastor of the 'Harvest Christian Church', only about 1.7 miles away from the Dove World Outreach Center, whose followers plan to Burn Koran's on the night of 9/11 as a remembrance to the fallen victims. Both have replied that they oppose this event as it is giving a bad name to Gainesville, and a bad name to Christians.

Here is the message I sent to Harvest Christian Church:
Hello,

My name is Aadil Malik, and I am a 15-year old Muslim teenager residing in Pennsylvania. Our community, and most of the entire U.S., is highly concerned about the planned hateful acts being planned to be taken at the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, FL, only about 1.7 miles away from your vicinity. I'm sure you may have heard that on September 11th, 2010, the DWOC, a church, plans to burn our Holy Book, the Qu'ran, as a preaching of Islam being of the "devil", and that it will be an act to remember the people who died on September 11th.

To many people I know, this is an act of intolerance and hate. In fact, over 6,000 people to date, of ALL faiths, are on a page on Facebook reflecting their concern and opposition of this planned event, which you can see at: http://www.facebook.com/pages/In-Protest-of-International-Burn-a-Koran-Day/105895039464821#!/pages/In-Protest-of-International-Burn-a-Koran-Day/105895039464821?v=wall

As Muslims, we are extremely concerned and are making efforts to create peace, and oppose this event. I wanted to see if your Church is also taking constructive action in the opposition of this event.

Please let me know your thoughts as soon as possible. I look forward to speaking with you.

May peace be with you, 
Aadil Malik

The pastor of Harvest church had this to say:
Aadil:
Thank you for your e mail concerning the Dove Outreach Center.  If you want you can go to my Facebook for July 27th In which I condemn this behavior.  When Abraham was on the mountain for the near sacrifice of his son, Isaac in Jewish/Christian tradition and Ishmael in Muslim tradition (unless I am mistaken), there came a point in which God said "Stop you have proved your faith".  It is time for all people of faith to stop acts of discord and prove their faith by acts of love.  Sadly there are both Christian and Muslim people who will not allow dissenting voices.  As I a follower of Jesus I condemn all behaviors that are contrary to the way of Christ and offer friendship to anyone.  We may disagree but we may be filled with grace in so doing.
I offer you my friendship...

I sent basically an edited version of the same message I sent to Harvest to the Mayor. Another heart warming message is one I received from the Executive Assistant of Mayor Craig Lowe of Gainesville, FL:
Good Morning,
Mayor Lowe is in receipt of your email correspondence.  For your information, I have attached a copy of the Mayor's press release which was issued yesterday.  This matter has also been forwarded to the City Manager's Office, the City Attorney's Office and the Equal Opportunity Office for review. Thank you for taking the time to comment on this matter.
Executive Assistant to the Mayor

The press release is probably the best thing I've read in this entire cause, because it is coming from one of the highest agendas in Gainesville.

These replies reflect how hateful this act is. We can only pray that this act will not take place.

International Burn a Koran Day- A Revealing Message from One of It's Followers


As you may or may not have heard, a Pastor by the name of Terry Jones, head of the Dove Outreach Center (a self-proclaimed Church) in Gainesville, FL, plans to host a Qur'an-Burning "event" on the night of 9/11/10, to what they claim as a "remembrance" of the victims. The preacher and his followers claim "Islam is of the Devil", and to advocate this message, they have put up a sign outside their center, created a Facebook page, published books, and have even made t-shirts for sale.


Now, being a Muslim, this offends me to a huge degree where I have to take verbal, yet peaceful and tolerant action. I know this blog isn't called "TFAMT" or Truth from a Muslim Teen, but in this case of absurdity, I hope you agree that doesn't make any difference.


There is a page on Facebook called "In Protest of International Burn a Koran Day", where people from all faiths and ways of life are sharing their concern about this topic. To take action, I myself have been highly active on monitoring this page, and trying to make a peaceful difference.You can see this page at: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/pages/In-Protest-of-International-Burn-a-Koran-Day/105895039464821?v=wall


I have spoken to many people who are supporting this malicious event and are followers of Preacher Terry Jones. I won't disclose full names, but some of you will already know who I am talking about. Here is a summarized message thread I had with L.C., a well-known person in this event:


Me: I've been following your comments on the Burn Koran page, and honestly I don't quite understand your ignorance. I'm fifteen years old with not a lot of experience in this world. However, I am sadly wiser than you because of the fact that I understand an eye for an eye will only end up in the entire world being blind. Go ahead, burn a Qu'ran. Stereotype that all terrorists are Muslims - when clearly you are becoming a terrorist of my real religion. You will only be inflicting pain on yourself. It will not cause you any form of respect - only disrespect. You're not becoming the "bigger man" in this situation. You are only adding fire to an unnecessary fire already created. By burning our Holy Book, you aren't only causing hurt on the minute batch of Muslims that are extremists, but you are causing hurt on the MILLIONS of daily-praying REAL Muslims all around the world. And if this IS all about 9/11, then how about you realize that REAL Muslims are grieving that day much more than you - grieving it because they are being stereotyped every hour and every minute of their lives. Burning our Holy Book is like burning our HEARTS. And if you do it, you will forever be in my mind as the cruelest person ever. I apologize all the hurt the batch of Muslim terrorists have caused you personally, but this act is beyond cruel. Let them be judged by God. I'm only trying to save you from cruelty - something that is frowned upon and is a sin in ALL religions. Please don't burn my holy Book, please don't burn my heart.
Peace be with you,
Aadil.
L.C: Aadil, I do not, and never have stereotyped that all Muslims are terrorists. We will be burning the Koran because ignorant Muslims like you burn the US flag, over and over and over. The US flag is WAY more sacred than the Koran will ever be. It is our heart, and you burned it. That's why we have to even the score by burning your turd book.
I pray that you will continue with your research on leaving Islam. Now you claim that Islam isn't so bad. But some day you'll be convinced that Islam is wrong because it's a hateful religion that discriminates on unbelievers. The truth will surely reveal itself to you someday. =)
Me: Sure, you probably haven't stereotyped that all Muslims are terrorists. But you have absurdly claimed that all terrorists are Muslims when CLEARLY YOU ARE BECOMING THE TERRORIST! You are TERRORIZING MY RELIGION! You are on the verge on committing a potential hate crime! And about the American flag which I pledge to almost everyday, you are creating a horrible name for it and you are indirectly burning it yourself. If you find the American flag more sacred to my Qu'ran, than you must find it more sacred than the Bible - so stop contradicting yourself. If the American flag is your heart then whats the Bible to you? Because clearly you aren't following it. And I would take that as the worst insult if I was a Christian. EVEN YOUR CHRISTIAN BROTHERS AND SISTERS are saying you are going against your own book! And you know what - I don't need your crazy prayers. You need my prayers. And by burning our Holy Qu'ran (learn to spell it right), and trashing us Muslims (learn to say it right), and by fighting against Islam (learn IT right), you are ONLY gaining disrespect. Please learn some respect and wisdom. I'll say it for the millionth time: An eye for an eye only ends up in the ENTIRE WORLD BEING BLIND! 
L.C: I'm not a Christian, dumbfuck. LOL. If you were standing in front of me, I'd poke your fucking your eye out, and tell you to suck it up, because you don't believe in An Eye for An Eye. HA HA HA.
Me: Then what are you? An disrespect-er? Because that seems like your religion. And don't call me a "dumbf***", when you're the one who can't even bear to realize the truth.
L.C: Islam is deeply racist against other religions. Saudi Arabia (the global center of Islam) is the worst hellhole of religious intolerance and hate on earth. Non-muslims are barred from Mecca like blacks were barred under apartheid. The Bible, churches, Jews, synagogues, stars of David, crosses, buddhist temples, rabbis, priests, Christian prayers, Christmas trees, Christmas stamps, Valentines day etc. are all illegal. Islam is a religion of hate.
Me: Thanks for not answering my question. Let me fill in your statement with the truth. L.C. is deeply racist against other religions. The Dove (whatever they call it) Center is the worst hellhole of religious intolerance and hate on Earth. The Qu'ran is being planned to be burnt as if someone burnt their holy book. This hate crime (if it even happens) should be illegal. L.C. is a person of hatred.
L.C: Aadil, I told you. You burn our flag, we burn your turd book. Turn about is fair play. The aim of burning the Koran is to train Muslims, like dogs, so that they no longer respond when we mock, ridicule and insult Islam. You might as well shut up and get used to it. We're going to be burning the Koran and drawing insulting cartoons of your Prophet FOREVER. It's our solemn and holy right due to the First Amendment of the US Constitution. The Constitution will always crush superstitious nonsense like the Koran.
Me:  I didn't know your flag was your holy book.
L.C: The US flag is FAR more sacred than any holy book. Millions of men have sacrificed their life and blood for it. If you think the Koran is more worthy of respect than the US flag, you should be arrested, convicted and shot for treason.
Me: I didn't say I don't respect the flag. I probably pledged to it more than you ever did. I'm trying to understand why you are supporting a Church of Christianity when you say the 'American Flag' is holier than any Holy Book. Aren't you against their views too? Are you trying to start a religion of the American Flag or something? We respect America and Americans, but I don't respect you ma'am. Because you are unworthy of anyone's respect.
L.C: I'm not supporting a church of Christianity. I am supporting the burning of the Koran.
Me: Contradiction after contradiction. You are supporting that church in Gainesville! You might as well shut up before you sentence yourself to something you don't want to be sentenced to. And we will always respond. The Qu'ran and all other Holy Books will crush YOU and teach you to be wise. Unless you have sealed your heart. Which sadly it seems that you have, Allah knows better. I'm warning you- if you keep disrespecting- nothing will do you good. You are simply cruel and ignorant. Live a better life of tolerance instead of trolling around like a maniac full of hypocrisy. You aren't a true American if you don't believe in liberty for all.
L.C: I do believe in liberty for all. That includes the right to free speech. Therefore I have the right to insult, belittle, ridicule, mock and laugh at your religion to my heart's content. This is America and there is nothing you can do to shut me up. LOL. I'm sure that over time, God will open your mind and you will realize that Islam is bollocks, and see the truth. There are many kind people who can help you in your journey away from the cult of Muhammad and the turd book. I'll pray every day that your blindness and ignorance get cured.
PAUSE: Didn't she say she wasn't Christian, and now she wants me to convert..?

Me: Btw, you never answered my question of what religion you are. Therefore, I am in no need of your disgraceful prayers. And you have no heart, so don't say you'll mock to it's content. I know the truth. You fear to realize it. You aren't entitled to free action. You are entitled to freedom of speech, to an EXTENT decided by law. Hate speech is illegal under terms of action. So watch yourself, 'Greatest American'. Yes, you have the right to disrespect. You have the right to be rude, cruel, mean, arrogant, ignorant, stupid. But you don't have the right to anyone's respect- because of your inhumane beliefs. Islam is the fasting growing religion in the world, and you fear that fact as a coward. I wish for peace and wisdom- two things you lack. You are a thickheaded person with no love whatsoever. And that is why I leave you. Wa'akhiruda wana analhamdulillahi rab al alameen. Good bye.
L.C: Christianity is the fastest growing religion in the world, not Islam.
http://www.bible.ca/islam/islam-myths-fastest-growing.htm In the U.S., Islam ranks 9th in terms of growth rate. In terms of raw numbers "nonreligious/secular" is the fastest growing religion in the America. http://www.adherents.com/rel_USA.html
Me: You're so unintelligent that you don't know the definition of 'Goodbye'?
L.C: I'll be praying for you, that you will see the truth. Islam is a disgusting religion founded by a mass murderer who sawed off the heads of 700 Jews in one day. I'm sure that if you saw that act of horror actually transpire, you would be crying, vomiting and defecating in your pants with fear. You're a young boy Aadil, it's not too late for you to turn back from the wrong path your parents have brainwashed you into. I know it's scary to leave Islam because the Muslims will try to kill you, but there are some wonderful support groups to help return to being a human being. You're a smart boy, and I know with time you'll see the light, Aadil.
PAUSE: What "light"? I thought she wasn't Christian! CONTRADICTION and HYPOCRISY.
Me: I am a 'smart boy', that is why I side with the intelligent. We true Muslims are much more loving, peaceful, and compassionate than you. And how dare you say my parents have brainwashed me! How dare you! I am blessed to be born in such a beautiful religion. And I don't know what source you've received your information from, but I pray that Allah grants you the knowledge to one day be on the Sirat-ul-Mustaqeem, Ameen. And this time, be wise enough to understand the meaning of this word: Goodbye.
L.C: Look it up "smart boy". The Massacre of Qurayzah. Muhammad sawed off the heads of 700 Jews in ONE DAY. Ishaq 464: "The apostle went out to the market of Medina and dug trenches in it. Then he sent for the men of the Qurayzah and struck off their heads in those trenches as they were brought out to him in batches." Yup, it was a hell of a good time. Hacking through neck bones, severed arteries, gurgled screams, men defecating in their pants with fear, blood spurting everywhere. All courtesy of Muhammad. When the butchering was done, Muhammad enslaved the weeping widows and children of the dead, and divvied them up with his gang of thugs as "booty". Look it up Aadil. You and your deluded parents "love" a mass murderer, kidnapper and slaver.
Me: Ishaq is a sub-narrator and that Hadith could be a very weak one. I believe everything that is in the Qu'ran and I follow the Sunnah. Since you like 'rights' so much- I have the right to freedom of my religion. Stop trying to make me find some fake light or fake truth. I already know the truth. Sorry, I don't have the same beliefs as you. I'm not attacking your religion (if you even have one). You are attacking mine. And I am and ALWAYS will be defending my religion. So for the third time, I'm disappointed that your stupidity is still apparent and you aren't understanding this word, but GOODBYE. Thank you for your time, I apologize if I hurt your feelings, you probably wont apologize to me for hurting mine because you have no heart sooo- GOODBYE!
L.C: Aadil, I can tell you are a nice boy, and you don't approve of brutal killers like Muhammad. I will keep praying for you. The light of the truth is always there for you; just look up and you will see it. I beg you to think hard about this: We know for a scientific fact that there was no "Adam". Man evolved slowly over millions of years from earlier hominids like Homo Habilis. This means that the story of Adam in the Koran is false. It's simply a fairy tale, and that means that the Koran was not written by God. Therefore Muhammad was a liar.
Think about that very hard, because it could be the clue that opens up for you the shining path of truth, and frees you from the dark chains of ignorance known as Islam. Peace be with you my brother. I will keep praying for your awakening. :-)
Me: You're merely confused and unintelligent. I feel like I'm not speaking English. GOODBYE!!.

At this point, L.C kept spamming me and saying: There was no Adam, Muhammad is a liar. So I used reverse psychology by stating if she replied again, she would be saying in my mind " I am LC., and I am illogical". And I told her to reply because it would be hilarious.


And then no more replies (EPIC WIN) :). The purpose of me showing you this message thread was to reflect the absurdity of this situation. And now it's up to YOUR judgment. Are these people crazy? Is this act necessary? 


As for me, the truth is it's crazy. The claim it is an act of love, when it is clearly an act of hate, because FIRE never means love. We need to COEXIST. You follow your religion, I follow mine.


You tell me.


-That's the TFAT.
