Actions follow beliefs

Reader comment on item: How to End Terrorism:
in response to reader comment: apologetic liars

Submitted by Ianus (Poland), Dec 13, 2006 at 18:36

" Why would anyone apologize to another human being for what they believe in?"

Simply because human actions originate in beliefs. You don't do things you hold to be false and unholy to you. And if it can be shown that your beliefs are totally irrational and lead to detrimental consequences you not only should apologize, but abandon them. Have you ever heard the word 'rationalism' and the definition of human species as "Homo Sapiens' ( Rational Man) ?

> Faith is something corresponding with God and not with another human being...

As long as you continue to live in the Rub al-Khali I don't mind that. But the moment you come to a civilization of human beings and spread such views I do oppose them. They destroy the civilization I live in and want to preserve. On its ruin they edify a spiritual Rub al-Khali.

> I am not apologizing, nor am I a liar. Whatever it is I believe in liar or not, that is not for you to decide.

Are you a solipsist?

> Or don't you believe in the basic human rights of religion and beliefs? how pitiful.

Islam is not a religion as any other and least of all a religion of peace. Can't you see that ? Dhimmi-no-more is absolutely right. You are absolutely wrong.
