Please, please. Where can I get paid for being an atheist? That seems like such an easy way to earn money. Who is doing the paying? How do I sign up?

The age of the universe is three times the age of our Earth.

Quran 50:38. We assuredly created the heavens and the earth and all that is between them in six days, and nothing of fatigue touched us.

Quran 41.9 Say, "Do you indeed disbelieve in He who created the earth in two days and attribute to Him equals? That is the Lord of the worlds."

The verses say the universes and our universe have been created in 6 days/stages, and our Earth is in 2 days/phases.

So the age or creation phase of the universe means three times the age of our Earth or the stage of creation.

Today, science also gives a similar knowledge: Our universe is 13.5 billion years old and our Earth is 4.5 billion years old....

In other words, science indicates that the age of our universe is 3 times the age of our Earth(4.5 X 3 = 13.5).

To be an atheist missionary one should be first and atheist.

You and Emre have to thank that you are not dealt with like Emre is in this very thread at Godlike Productions.
I have definitely seen it argued that Christianity had a role in laying the foundation for science and technology. I think it's a load of crap, but there are people who buy it (mostly Christians).

If that is the case,

Then 4.4 billion years ago the Earth was 0.1 billion years old and the universe was 9.1 billion years old.

Therefore, at that time the universe was 91 times older than the Earth.

As such, your ideas about god math are quite incorrect.

If that is the case, then that would mean that it took your god 13.5 billion years to write one book.

I've always been amused that these Gods waited hundreds of thousands of years to make up the rules and give them to hapless mankind. Countless millions of HSS and their 'cousins' lived and died without know they were going to hell.......lol

Nope. I'm not with you on this one. Cultural sneering and denigration isn't great in any context.

I'm certain that doubling down on racism is probably not going to assist the claim.

The contention that Islam (the inventor of Universities, Algebra and maintaining virtually the entirety of Greek thought from the Classical period) put a stop to education and learning is utterly false and ridiculous in the extreme.

It was the beginning of the end, unquestionably, I never said everything stopped on day one. As Islam took hold and transformed from a personal belief system into a all-pervading tool of conquest, those initiatives quickly fell away. The Islamic world has produced nothing of worth in the last thousand years.

OK, you're being pedantic, so let's say 750 years. Do you imagine that they're just taking a breather or something, before revealing their next slew of revolutionary world-changing technologies?

The rules are always the same, since the first person, the Islamic religion has always come.

The people who do not reach the book are evaluated according to their status.

The verses in our inner teaching us the good and the truth.

Everyone knows the truth under the unconscious . And that's why everyone is responsible.

Remember the promise you gave to God when you were a baby.

7:172 When your Lord took from the children of Adam from their backs, their progeny; and He made them witness over themselves: "Am I not your Lord?" They said, "Yes, we bear witness." Thus you cannot say on the day of Resurrection that you were unaware of this.

7:173 Nor can you say, "It was our fathers who set up partners before and we were simply a progeny who came after them. Would You destroy us for what the innovators did?"

Our program is in the direction of faith to truth, and goodness.

30:30 So establish yourself to the system of monotheism. It is the nature that God has made the people on. There is no changing in God's creation. Such is the pure system, but most people do not know.

What's this crap?

I gave no promise to anyone when I was a baby, and no-one would take anything a baby says seriously anyway.

There is no god, so promises ostensibly to a god are just you talking to yourself, which is a good sign that you are mentally unwell.

Demonstrating that your claims (none of which you have supported in any fashion) are erroneous is not being pedantic.

Given how far you have already walked back your claim, I hope we don't have to see you walk back the remainder in 250 year increments

We'll hold it at 750 years for now. So, what are these important inventions?

Well, lets review:

here was the original claim:

"but back then they were actually quite progressive and learned. Islam put a stop to all that."

After redacting the parts that are grossly false, we are left with:

Well, we're left with my question: What are these important Islamic inventions of the past 750 years that I should be aware of?

As for my original statement, it's perfectly correct. Islam put a stop on technological progress. Now you assumed I meant Islam put a stop on technological progress from day one, but I didn't say that and hence I didn't mean it.

So, back to the question: What are these important Islamic inventions of the past 750 years that I should be aware of?

Your claim that Islam put "a stop" to "technical progress" is sheer, unfettered nonsense (the suggestion that the tribes of the Arabian Peninsula in 600 AD were progressive, leaned and experiencing technological progress is ludicrous for example), in fact I have already demonstrated the exact opposite is true.

Listen, if you want to support any of your claims at any time, that would be something. So do it.

The 2015 winner of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2015 was awarded jointly to Tomas Lindahl, Paul Modrich and Aziz Sancar "for mechanistic studies of DNA repair".

That recent enough for you?

I gave no promise to anyone when I was a baby, and no-one would take anything a baby says seriously anyway.

There is no god, so promises ostensibly to a god are just you talking to yourself, which is a good sign that you are mentally unwell.
Emre is taking the islamic concept of one sole existence (before and after death) and pushing it "on steroids".

I was soiled with the rite of baptism when I was a few month old. No further damage from the evil priests ever since. Anyway, now anyone can be debaptized if they ask the help of Bill Maher

Suspiciously way recent enough. It sounded like one of your "I don't want to talk about this" magic tricks.

Tell me, is the just three nobel laureates in science from Muslim origins a product of Islam, laicism or modernity?

No, of course I don't. These missionaries only exist in your imagination so if you won't tell us who you think pays them for not believing in stuff we'll never know.

The exact opposite of something I didn't say? I said the people of that region were relatively speaking "quite progressive and learned", not "progressive, leaned and experiencing technological progress."

You want me to support my claim that Islamic countries have produced no important inventions in the past 750 years? How would you suggest I do that?

So your evidence that the Muslim word has indeed produced important inventions in the past 750 years is that a team of three people, including one Turkish Muslim, won a prize in 2015.

OK, would you like me to comment on that right now or is there anything you would like to add?

That's a good point, but it's an even weaker argument than that.

The "days" mentioned were not, of course, the ages of the universe and the earth but rather the claimed time taken to create them. So even if it had taken 6 days to create the universe and then 2 days to make the earth, the universe would be 8 days old when the earth was completed, making the universe 4 times as old as the earth.

we are absolutely done with that (although the Trumpesque racism of "they are **** holes now" was clearly a glaring tip off that everything in that post was a *********** train wreck from the get go)
