Quran describes allah as the best deceiver!

The Quran describes Allah as the best deceiver there is, a liar who is not above using the same evil and wicked schemes of his opponents.

For example, the Quran calls Allah a makr, in fact the best makr there is.

But they (the Jews) were deceptive, and Allah was deceptive, for Allah is the best of deceivers

(Wamakaroo wamakara Allahu wa Allahu khayru al-makireena)!

In chapter 3 verse 54

YUSUF ALI: And (the unbelievers) plotted and planned, and Allah too planned, and the best of planners is Allah.

PICKTHAL: And they (the disbelievers) schemed, and Allah schemed (against them): and Allah is the best of schemers.

SHAKIR: And they planned and Allah (also) planned, and Allah is the best of planners.

Humanist Manifesto

HUMANISM AND ITS ASPIRATIONS

Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that, without supernaturalism, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity.
The lifestance of Humanism—guided by reason, inspired by compassion, and informed by experience—encourages us to live life well and fully. It evolved through the ages and continues to develop through the efforts of thoughtful people who recognize that values and ideals, however carefully wrought, are subject to change as our knowledge and understandings advance.
This document is part of an ongoing effort to manifest in clear and positive terms the conceptual boundaries of Humanism, not what we must believe but a consensus of what we do believe. It is in this sense that we affirm the following:

This is what I believe

Sometimes, when an atheist expresses his or her interest to debate with a theist using rationality, logic, reason and science; the budding discussion abruptly ends with the typical (or should I say stereotypical) remark,
Oh you're an atheist! Then you must have nothing to believe in!
After getting sick and tired, atheist Cuttlefish wrote this nice article on what he actually believes.

The relativity of wrong

Many theists admit what they believe now can not be proven by current scientific knowledge. But they never forget to insist science will eventually discover their faith is true and whatever mythological objects, events or creatures they believe will be proved as facts in future.

Theists also balantly claim that there is no guarantee, whateve we believe to be fact today can be proved wrong tomorrow. So we can never be sure about what awaits us in the future.

Isaac Asimov explains how science works and clarifies all the above points.

Who is Harun Yahya?

The Cult Figure

Adnan Oktar? The best investigative article i've found written about him is this - Journalist Halil Arda wrote in New Humanist about the secret lives of Harun Yahya.

Richard Dawkins debunks Oktar's creationism book called Atlas Of Creation.

Hmmm...every copy of this book has a production cost of £50. Oktar distributed approximately 10,000 books to scientists, biologists, evolutionists, archeologists, anthropologists and in schools, colleges, universities and libraries. A total of £ 500,000! I wonder where does his money come from.

For 40 years, the Black Stone in kaba, which is being kissed by millions of muslims, were once used as urinal by a muslim called Bin Hassan Al Qurmuti.

In the year 906 A.D. the leader of the Qarmatians, Abu Taher Bin Hassan Al-Qurmuti, led 700 horsemen into Mecca, massacred the Pilgrims, uncovered the Kaaba, and Urinated on it, took the black stone, and went over the top of the Kaaba and Said,
I am in God and God is in me. Where is your God? I am your great God. Where are the Birds of God (Tayr al ababeel) that protect the Kaaba? Where are the Stones of Fire (Hijara min sejeel)?

Ofcourse, we all are against the actions of the Qarmatians, for they killed many peaceful muslims and threw their bodies in the well of zamzam. The muslims didnt fight, because they believed in their allah to protect it, and another reason is that they said that Mecca was a place of peace.
