The Muslim Understanding of Reality and History

To Muslims, it’s quite simple: Allah created the world and everyone in it. Would it make any sense that there would be more than one religion in Allah’s creation? Allah would never allow that! Therefore, Adam was a Muslim, Abraham was a Muslim, David was a Muslim, and of course, Jesus was a Muslim. Because people had drifted away from Islam, Muhammad was sent to bring them back.

“I don’t think so, Tim.”

Toxic: Any argument or fact that can be screamed away, because it is obviously true, is called toxic.

Sultan Knish: Virtue and the Moral Fall of Civilization

A civilization is not a mechanical endeavor, but a moral one. The virtues that uphold a civilization, the ability to reason, to work hard, to study how to solve a problem, to sacrifice now for future gain, to cooperate with those outside the tribe, to value truth, beauty and goodness for their own sake are individual, but they are also social. A society that cultivates these virtues in people can prosper. As society loses these virtues, it grows dysfunctional. It loses winnable wars, it squanders vast wealth, it loses its work ethics, its ability to cooperate and to plan for the long term. It slowly dies.
