A Gandhari Sufi Muslim and David Frawley

My message to David Frawley:

Peace on truth seekers. I am a Sufi Muslim and biological descendant of Gandhari Greco-Buddhists. I consider myself as a bridge between western faith, western race and western philosophy. In modern world semitic faith and indo-european culture are seen to be in aggressive conflict especially after rise of modern atheism.

Orthodox Muslims, boredom and meaning

I have a great job, a terrific apartment, loving parents. Haven’t touched alcohol in years, and never tried illicit drugs. No gambling, no reckless driving, no extreme sports. No sex in over a year. And turning 36 next week.

I am profoundly bored.
I got here by swallowing my feelings and continuing to put one foot in front of the other. Nowadays it takes 300mg of Effexor a day to that. Boredom never ends. And it does not feel like an emptiness, but rather like I’m being buried alive. Life means nothing, there is no point, no purpose that I can find.

I am an orthodox Muslim. People may expect us to have very boring lives but our meaningful lives help us a lot to deal with existential boredom. Exploring the local Mosque and/or Muslim community might help you.


Message to an Azerbaijani logician

Peace brother from Pakistan. The biological mechanism of fight or flight has hagiosophical lessons to inform our cultural resistance. Spider cannibalism is part of our Scripture. Many giants of our history may have had a schizoid personality. We really need lessons in logical fallacies and cognitive biases to inform our religio-political discourse like the traditional mantiq lessons.


Islam and specieism

Islam teaches that on day of judgement a goat will be provided justice for being wronged by another goat by the horn. Leader of saints Ali peace be upon him taught that I would not accept a position of hagiocracy which involves taking away seeds from ants unjustly.

21st century Muslims are victims of a kind of reverse specieism in which animals in west have more rights than anti-imperial Muslims.

Islam, Christianity and narcissistic victim syndrome

I am an orthodox Muslim with some narcissistic family members. I am raised a Sunni and I like Shia attitude towards narcissistic anti-religious or pseudo-religious dictators. Now I am a semi-Sunni semi-Shia Zaydi. Shias cites Quran 4:148 as the Scriptural basis for being outspoken when you suffer abuse. Religion neither teaches blind anarchism nor blind obedience. Rather a optimal middle path of moderate respectful rebellion on that spectrum. Reza Aslan has shown rebellious elements in early Christianity which are different from modern socialism.
