PostSubject: Islam and Reformation according to a Muslim scholar    Thu Jun 15, 2017 6:06 pm




^ this is really good, an interview with a Muslim scholar and Imam who claims that Islam needs to go through a Reformation similar to what Christianity went through, so that the outdated and barbaric cultural practices that survive in many modern interpretations of the Koran can be removed and replaced by a new, better interpretation of Islam that fits with the modern world.

 

___________
"We must, now armed with such a language, realize the “transcendental unity of ideas,” through a new morality that aims, not to hypostasize experience and grasp in positive knowledge a series of particular virtues and vices, but rather to fully explicate this continuity; where philosophy exists to represent this transcendental order, morality most exist to mediate the two spheres, the spheres of experience and ideality." --Parodites

"Between this sky and the faces turned toward it there is nothing on which to hang a mythology, a literature, an ethic, or a religion—only stones, flesh, stars, and those truths the hand can touch." --Camus

"It is a tedious thing to be always beginning life; they live badly who always begin to live." --Seneca

"I kick ass, all these other humans suck balls." --Inmendham

I was actually thinking on this topic a couple days ago.

Yes, it is time for a revised edition.
