Continued…(13) more topics from good logic

On generalising people:

I am not trying to correct or advise or judge. I am going to highlight a point. Generalisation!

When we say ” Jews” or “Muslims” or… we need to be specific, unless we mean “All Jews” or “All Muslims” or… Why?

Because we cannot paint “All” with the same brush!!! It is what Qoran describes as “Fussuq and Isyaan”,there may be some good and innocent people in our “generalisation”? Qoran advises us to set the example:

O you who believe, no people shall ridicule other people, for they may be better than they. Nor shall any women ridicule other women, for they may be better than they. Nor shall you mock one another, or make fun of your names. Evil indeed is the reversion to wickedness after attaining faith. Anyone who does not repent after this, these are the transgressors.
يٰأَيُّهَا الَّذينَ ءامَنوا لا يَسخَر قَومٌ مِن قَومٍ عَسىٰ أَن يَكونوا خَيرًا مِنهُم وَلا نِساءٌ مِن نِساءٍ عَسىٰ أَن يَكُنَّ خَيرًا مِنهُنَّ وَلا تَلمِزوا أَنفُسَكُم وَلا تَنابَزوا بِالأَلقٰبِ بِئسَ الِاسمُ الفُسوقُ بَعدَ الإيمٰنِ وَمَن لَم يَتُب فَأُولٰئِكَ هُمُ الظّٰلِمونَ
O you who believe, you shall avoid any suspicion, for even a little bit of suspicion is sinful. You shall not spy on one another, nor shall you backbite one another; this is as abominable as eating the flesh of your dead brother. You certainly abhor this. You shall observe God. God is Redeemer, Most Merciful.
يٰأَيُّهَا الَّذينَ ءامَنُوا اجتَنِبوا كَثيرًا مِنَ الظَّنِّ إِنَّ بَعضَ الظَّنِّ إِثمٌ وَلا تَجَسَّسوا وَلا يَغتَب بَعضُكُم بَعضًا أَيُحِبُّ أَحَدُكُم أَن يَأكُلَ لَحمَ أَخيهِ مَيتًا فَكَرِهتُموهُ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ تَوّابٌ رَحيمٌ

We should be specific, but discussion should not turn into a “generalisation” of races and religions…:

If GOD did us a favour, we must return that favour on others, Qoran advises good conduct :
… But God made you love faith and adorned it in your hearts, and He made you abhor disbelief, wickedness, and disobedience. These are the guided ones.
وَاعلَموا أَنَّ فيكُم رَسولَ اللَّهِ لَو يُطيعُكُم فى كَثيرٍ مِنَ الأَمرِ لَعَنِتُّم وَلٰكِنَّ اللَّهَ حَبَّبَ إِلَيكُمُ الإيمٰنَ وَزَيَّنَهُ فى قُلوبِكُم وَكَرَّهَ إِلَيكُمُ الكُفرَ وَالفُسوقَ وَالعِصيانَ أُولٰئِكَ هُمُ الرّٰشِدونَ

Sometimes it is good for us to reflect and put the breaks on . Do onto others…

On a proverb:

• Q:  How many gifted believers does it take to change a light bulb ? 
 A:  None. “Why should we impose our values on the light bulb ? If it wishes to be a light bulb of no light, we should respect its uniqueness and individuality.

On who is GOD and why “One GOD” only:

GOD gives us the answer when he uses the word “Absolute one”,

There has to be one supremacy and one intelligence, a source and a founder of all that exist.

The question “What or who created the creator” will keep going on and on if there was no “Absolute one” i.e the Origin, Source .That is exactly who the Creator is: The Origin. the only one, the Absolute one.  He calls Himself the “First” and the “Last”…etc.

Everything stops at the Creator. He simply always existed, before anything…

The words absolute and relative are quite straight forward in what they mean. Anything relative is that which can be compared to or related to other things. Whenever we describe that object we are always describing it in relation to other things. On the other hand an absolute is that which is self-existent and conceivable without relation to other things.

So who created the one who created…are all relative, connected to each other. GOD is absolute, disconnected from the chain of who created…etc

The absolute God then means that nothing is like or akin to Him, but if we were to consider the possibility of the existence of more than one god, immediately the question will arise as to: which god came first, which god is more powerful and so on, and that would ultimately reduce these gods to being relative because comparisons will arise.

If God is absolute, by definition, He must be One and not created by any other. i.e the buck stops there.

Somebody might say : “Why are you quoting the Qoran when I do not believe in it?” i.e using the “Absolut one”?

I say logic also leads to this conclusion?

On “network”,electricity”,floppy discs…:

If a transient hits a pocket on a socket on a port
And the bus is interrupted at a very last resort
And the access of the memory makes your floppy disc abort
Then the shocked packet pocket has an error to report.

If your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash
And the double-clicking icon puts your window in the trash
And your data is corrupted ’cause the index doesn’t hash
Then your situations’ hopeless and your system’s gonna crash.

If the label on the cable on the table at your house
Says the network is connected to the button on your mouse
But your packets want to tunnel to another protocol
That’s repeatedly rejected by the printer down the hall
And your screen is all distorted by the side effects of gauss
So your icons in the window are as fickle as a grouse
Then you may as well reboot and go out with a bang
‘cuz sure as I’m a poet, the sucker’s gonna hang.

Any answers out there?

On seeing the light-light-hearted!:

I have seen the light. I think I know the answer, but first:

1- How many Moderators does it take to change a light bulb ?

Two. One to change the bulb and the other to send out a rejection order for the post about the “light bulb joke” !

2-Q: What did the light bulb say to the generator?

A: “I really get a charge out of you!”

What Thomas Edison’s Mother might have said to her son:
“Of course I’m proud that you invented the electric light bulb. Now turn it off and get to bed!”

Sign on  the side of the electrician’s van – “Let Us Get Rid of Your Shorts”.

At the electric company: “We would be delighted if you send in your bill. However, if you don’t, you will be.”

Q: What is an electrician’s favorite ice cream flavor?

A: Shock-o-lot!

3- Carry on with the jokes, until one of them answers the question?:

Two atoms were walking down the street one day, when one of them exclaimed, “Oh no – I’ve lost an electron!” “Are you sure?” the other one asked. “Yes,” replied the first one, “I’m positive.”

Q: Why are electricians always up to date?
A: Because they are “Current specialists”.

Q: How do you pick out a dead battery from a pile of good ones?
A: It’s got no spark!

Q: What would you call a power failure?
A: A current event

Sorry, I  will  need to ponder the question a bit more.

GOD bless
