  3. WoW these extracts form the Koran seem really sound. I really agree with the whole balance thing, and with the comment above about distrubing it! Hey castro cheers for reply PS What is the final judgment day?
  4. LoL...... i enjoyed reading your replies, thanx to all of you! And to the men giving the advice, thanx. But a) I actually don't drink really, as my body thinks most of it is poison to it. b) even thou I go out, It doesn't mean I let anyone disresect me (I aint no piece of meat and I don't let men treat me like one). The only reason I go out is for my love of music, and meeting friendly down to earth people. I'd love to go to an Ede party, but I can't just gatecrash, lol!
  5. No not at all!!!!! I just just lead my thoughts on about "hey **** what happens on earth cuz I'm going to a nice after life" attitude!!!!! I was (trying) to drawing a comprison, The regilous right (christian) don't care for innocent lives when it comes to war, and don't care about the environment!! And some religious people who are islamic don't care about innocent peoples lives. But in MY opinion I reckon the religous right in America are worse, but they seem not get away with it, when it comes to media coverage!!! They 'terrorise' just as much, but in underhand ways!
  6. hey foxy thanx for the relpy! I'll try and check it out x
  7. ^^^^^^^ HA HA neways thank you for that link!! It looks wicked, i'm gonna organise a trip to it with my girls maybe for that De La soul night! THanX
  8. Scary eh? And Gorge Bush won't even sign to the Kioto (sorry if spelt wrong) agreement. Apprently most of the his right wing fundementalist cronnies don't really care because they reckon they'll reach heaven where there'll be safe. This recuurring thing I keep hearing with fundementalist religious people really scares me, it's like they don't care what they do on this earth or to its people, because they all think they are going to paradise after. I really admire & respect religous people (well the ones I meet), but the ones that terrify me are the exstremists, and they hate each other (calling each other evil).....as an outsider though I see the extremists all acutally have alot in common. Hate, hate and more hate.... Even as a little girl I used to wish we could make a planet for them all to live on together, and let us lot live in peace. This world is CRAZY
  9. thank you for the last few replies........ .... the first few seemed abit of an attack.... I been bought with white english parents...so please give me some slack!

  11. I think the correct term is INTERNALLY DISPLACED PEOPLE....... there are actully millions of internally displaced people all over the world, and unfortunately they do not get the same internation recognition as refugees, as they can still find refuge in their own countries.
