Weird Nostradamus prediction: But the world will not end in one swift cataclysm, and conspiracists instead believe that Earth will suffer great natural disasters, deadly asteroids as well as the horror and destruction of World War 3 — all three of which have alarming contemporary resonance. In this bizarre compendium of quatrain verses, the prophet warned that the skies will open to fire, the seas and oceans will flood the lands and powerful tremors will split the Earth open.
We seek refuge with Allah from the evil of our selves and from the evil results of our actions. I testify that Allah alone is worthy of worship and that Muhammad is His slave and final Messenger. The best discourse is the book of Allah, and the best way is the way of Muhammad, and the worst of the matters in the religion are those newly introduced innovations, for every innovation in the religion is misguidance, and every misguidance is going astray and every going astray is in the Hellfire.
Brian Beedham is able to rely on what Noam Chomskey calls "manufactured consent". While dictatorships use force in order to achieve consent from the people and prevent opposition, "democracies" manufacture consent through the media by using it to providing a particular world view which conforms to the interests, by and large, of the ruling elite.
In fact the statement in not at all true. Recent events, such as the meeting of the opposition groups, including the "rebel fundamentalists", in Rome, calling for talks and a return to free elections - which was even supported by the French government and was rejected by the Algerian government - shows that it is the Algerian government that has proved bloody minded.
In spite of such obvious discrepancies Mr. Beedham is able to get away with it because consent has already been manufactured that the fundamentalists are rebellious and bloody minded.
Similarly he never feels he has to prove that democracy is an advantage, it is taken almost completely for granted, knowing his audience is already "captive" so as to speak. In the age of the "sound-bite" or perhaps in this case "word-bite"opposing the conventional wisdom is not easy, for what the likes of Mr.
Beedham can say in a sentence opposing it would take a book. Even then it would be of doubtful effectiveness, for opposing the norms of society is perhaps one of the hardest paths to take for an instinctively societal creature like ourselves.
Thus I shall be writing a series of letters, and not just one, thus enabling me to break down the commentary into more manageable pieces.
I shall also refer certain topics to appendices, which may include video and audio tapes. Of course no Muslim could accept Islam merely as an idea. As the survey itself mentions, Islam is based on the "word of God, revealed syllable by syllable to Muhammad fourteen hundred years ago" p.
Thus it is no mere idea, rather it is the idea, the ideology, the truth, exclusive of all others. As the Quran states: Indeed the very first task given to Muhammad peace be upon him was to correct the false beliefs. It was not that the pagan Arabs did not believe in Allah, or God the Creator.
In fact the Quran tells Muhammad peace be upon him: Most of them have no sense". Or who owns hearing and sight? And who brings out the living from the dead and the dead from the living?
And who disposes the affairs? So this is the reality concerning most of the men and jinn, that they claim to believe in Allah, and worship Allah, but what they believe about Him is incorrect, and the way they worship Him is incorrect All of this has one common cause, or origin, and that is thinking and speaking about Allah without knowledge, and thus ascribing to Him that which should not be ascribed to Him, such as sons, or daughters, or human qualities and weaknesses, or claiming that some of the creation possess His powers and abilities, or by claiming that He, the Majestic, is pleased by some action that in fact angers Him, or that He is angered by some action that in fact pleases Him.
So thus the idol worshippers call upon that which can neither benefit nor harm them, and the Christians call upon Jesus, and the Jews believe their racial origins guarantee His good pleasure, and those who believe that power, wealth and the such are means of success; all have put their faith and trust in something vain.
This in itself is a great evil, for they have only wasted their time and effort, yet this is least of the evil consequences. As for that which is most severe For if one is unafraid of speaking about Allah without knowledge, and this is a knowledge unattainable except through Him, for He is the best knower of Himself and His will, and that which pleases and displeases Him, then about what and about whom will one be afraid of speaking about ignorantly?
For truly, as is obvious to anyone witnessing the destructive forces of nature, and untold misfortunes and miseries over which Allah alone has ultimate power and control, both in this life and the next, Allah is the most terrifying and most worthy of being feared.
And also anyone witnessing the miraculous order, and precision, and symbiosis within the earth and universe, must realize the unparalleled knowledge and wisdom of its Creator.
So if one is heedless of transgressing the laws of Allah, and thinks them of little or no importance, or worse considers them bad, evil, and outdated, then what of the laws conceived in the limited minds of men? If one is ungrateful to his Lord, the provider of all, then of what little consequence to such a one is ingratitude to the creation?
If one denies the rights and dues of Allah, which are the most worthy of being fulfilled, then what rights and dues will such one be fearful of denying then?His astrological forecasts and books of prophecies, called the Centuries and written in codes and anagrams, sold well and made Nostradamus quite celebrated.
He used a bowl of water called a "magic mirror" to assist him in writing his predictions. Nostradamus predicted the date of his own death in in his Presage Nostradamus is known for being pretty vague at times, with many parallels between real life and his ancient predictions being a bit of a stretch, but now more so than ever we’re beginning to think that maybe there’s some kind of method to his seeming madness, after all.
In his book "Nostradamus, Bibliomancer: The Man, the Myth, the Truth," Peter Lemesurier, a former Cambridge linguist and author of nearly a dozen books on the French seer, concludes that. The core foundation of Hindu belief is that Vedas contain source of all knowledge – physical or metaphysical.
However in last odd years, this belief has come under scrutiny due to the advances that modern science claims to make.
