What's the word for someone who doesn't care about religion?
It's not that I think a deity cannot exist, but if they do, they are some distant thing that doesn't bother me and that I don't bother with. I've always found prayers to be useless and a waste of time and that finding solutions for myself worked better since shit don't happen by itself. I've also always found religion in practice to be full of toxic BS that actively tries to make my life horrible shit, another reason why I've always rejected and avoided it. That's why I've always liked deities from pagan or fictional (redundant but you get my point) mythologies better, they're less intrusive and much more acceptable. Especially in the sexual sphere. Abrahamic religions truly are shit for a woman.
Tl;dr my belief of religious beings is pretty much distant remote things that may or may not be but should never interfere with my daily life. Does that still make me a atheist even though an atheist, by the word's definition, should be someone who thinks deities do not exist at all?
Are there any accounts of wonder-workers in Islam? I've read many in Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Sikhism, but Islam seems to have nothing of the sort, and believe me, I searched. Anyone can give me any examples or sources?
I've come across some vague claims about Sufis, but it was a pain in the ass to find anything substantial. Furthermore, I didn't know how accurately it reflected orthodox Islam since Sufism is met with such controversy in the religion.
Also, what are some Christian and Sikh miracles Islam accepts?
Until modern times, there wasn't so much orthodox Islam as a small top layer of orthodox legal traditions and the masses influenced mostly by Sufi mysticism and local syncretism.
You'll have to ask your local Sufi lodge for examples. There's an online Sufi wiki as well that might help.
What do you guys think about Ivan the Terrible? There's pitifully little about him on Wikapedia and it took a while to find a non-meme website about him.
Tell me (his), will we ever wear an armour during the war again?
What is the meaning of life according to Alexander the Great?
Why didn't the British attack america during the american civil war?
Are they stupid?
They had good relations with the Confederacy. If they attacked from Canada things would have gotten interesting desu. I wonder if the Confederacy would have accepted British entry into the war
Well, Britain was going to ally with the south but I seem to recall Russia being like "IF ANYONE DOES ANYTHING TO HELP THEM I WILL FUCK YOU UP"
Maybe I'm wrong about that, but for some reason that is coming to mind.
On which side? for the Confeds who had a shit load of cheap cotton to sell to the industrial powerhouse of the world, or for the Union who were abolishing the very thing they'd spent the last 50 years destroying?
Why didn't Hannibal just land in Sicily or Southern Italy? Why did he went north all the way from Iberia, into Gaul and across the Alps? Sure there was an element of surprise but going south would preserve a big chunk of his army. Even only taking Sicily would do a better work than wandering around Italy looking for legions to attack.
So /his/, Marius or Sulla?
Both are equally good and equally shitty. Marius saved the republic from shitskins in North Africa and Cimbri and Tuetone-fucking shits in Cisalpine Gaul, and made the Roman army nearly unparalleled for over 120 years with his reforms. Sulla defeated Mithirdates VI, the greatest general Rome had faced since Hannibal.
Marius was an insane gloryhound who massacred hundreds of civilians when he retook Rome. Sulla was a faggot who raised conscription lists because he was a dick.
Pick your poison. At least Augustus was super duper talented despite being an asshole.
Why is Isabella more famous than Ferdinand?
She's appeared in countless books, movies, tv shows, and video games. Half of Latin America and Spain is named after her.
And Ferdinand is rarely mentioned even though it looks like he was more involved in European conflicts than his wife.
Ferdinand is the model of The Prince of Niccolò Machiavelli
not enough for you ?
Okay /his/ I need some suggestions. I am currently writing a college assignment regarding World War One and the art it inspired. To close the paper I must sum up the impact of the Great War in a single word. While I had some ideas I would like to see what yall would have in mind.
Were there edgy artists in Egypt, Rome, etc?
Why is it said that Machiavelli created the modern world?
Has anyone on this board ever fasted for religious reasons?
What do you think of LessWrong and the so-called rationalist community?
Was voltaire ever married?
