Salah Ali: Your claim about apes and oranges being made to fit man had me in fits

Salah Ali, you write,

>>..I eat apple and find it different in taste, shape, texture and colour from an orange. If let's imagine an ape or an ass lives alone. And their existence, it is axiomatic, does not by necessity depend on man's existence. In other words, they exist by their own self: Be they created or made. But no man have existed. Only an ass and an orange. Then suppose the ape rides on the ass and the ass walks until it stops under an orange tree (short and full of oranges). let's imagine the ape picks an orange. Now what will it doo with it? Eat it or throw it. Now let's imagine the fingers of a human being and ask the question: Whose fingers does the orange fit? The ape or the man? It is very strange to imagine an ape alone or an orange alone. both the apes and oranges are made to fit man. The animal to ride, the orange to peel and separate parts and eat.,,<<

From the ramblings of this post I guess you are asking why things are as they are. The senseless example of apes and asses gives me an idea of the kind of religious education you received. It has succeed in releasing into the world more of the animals your story contains. Since you have quoted this fine example I guess it would be useless asking you whether you know anything about evolution and how it explains the hands of apes, the brain power of asses and how monkeys, donkeys and orange trees are related to each other.

>>Have you asked yourself how could white milk come out from a black cow and how could a black cow comes out from white milk?<<

I have observed white milk coming out of black cows but have yet to see black cows come out of white milk. If you have seen this miracle it beats even the prophet splitting the moon.

>>Culture is interdependent with nature and history dovetails with both.<<

That is too profound a statement for me to comment upon.

>> You Kafirs negate the existence of God but your argument is weak.<<

Can you gives us one argument kaffirs use for the non-existence of God or Allah?

>>You tell me to leave Europe but it is Europe that needs my service as I am a teacher of Arabic. If my contract ends, of course I will leave Europe but my mind is not geography. You should think twice before getting yourself into troubles.<<

The Koran's style of prose has rubbed off on you. From kaffir assertion about the non-existence of god you suddenly turn to the problem of your existence in Europe. Reading this post of yours is turning my mind not to geography but to mush. What were you smoking or drinking while in front of your computer?
