Do religious people believe in ghosts or not? If not, then what sense do angels and demons make?

The Truthful religion has no teachings to believe in”ghosts” or to believe in myths or to have superstitious beliefs/no-beliefs.
Fors instance we don’t believe in Atheism as it is just superstitious to believe in notions that are neither supported by “Religion” nor by science. Right, please?

How to sift reality/facts from superstition/myth?

October 5, 2017

Paarsurrey Notes on:

Al-An`am Chapter 6 : Verse 117

And if thou obey the majority of those on earth, they will lead thee astray from Allah’s way. They follow nothing but mere conjecture, and they do nothing but lie.

Yunus Chapter 10 : Verse 67

Behold! whoever is in the heavens and whoever is in the earth is Allah’s. Those who call on others than Allah do not really follow these ‘partners’; they follow only a conjecture, and they do nothing but guess.

Al-Zukhruf Chapter 43 : Verse 21

And they say, ‘If the Gracious God had so willed, we should not have worshipped them.’ They have no knowledge whatsoever of that. They do nothing but conjecture.

How does one sift reality facts from superstition/myth, please?

Commonality in all religious scriptures, reasonableness, secure and pristine word of Revelation

Believe it or not, stress makes people “more superstitious”.

Superstition is the religion of feeble minds

Superstitions are irrational beliefs

Superstitions are myth not reality, actually, we have firm belief on superstitions and just because of this we consider them as real.

Our mind has great power and if we believe enough, we can create what our mind believes. The history and development of myths, superstitions and ceremonies are extremely interesting.

You are very right John these false beliefs have become so much rooted in our minds and societies that it is hard to get rid of them. Fortune tellers had made a fool out of millions of people and are on their way to do so in future also. Your wife is facing the same scenario as millions have faced before and continued to… I hope so she understands the true reality of life. May Allah bless her and give her health…


The Science of Superstition

Parallel Sessions: Scientific Superstitions and Scientific Temper Myths, Superstitions and Propaganda in Scientific Age

In fact, “pattern finding” and “order seeking” mechanisms form the basis for nearly all existing myths

The same mechanism also makes us extremely vulnerable to all kinds of deceptions and manipulative techniques that impair our critical faculties. We may imagine things that don’t exist, make false judgments, accept uncritical claims, misinterpret facts and arrive at conclusions that are completely at odds with reality.

Quran does not restrict sciences till they don’t interfere with ethical, moral and spiritual realms

“There is no mention of Archimedes in the Revealed Book of the truthful religion from the One-True-God. Those who believe in Archimedes believe out of superstition; and have weak psyche. There is no mention of Japan either in that book.” Unquote

Though your post is addressed to Sabio; but the contents suggest that it pertains to me, if I have correctly understood.
The Revealed Book as clearly mentioned in its beginning is for ethical, moral and spiritual guidance for the human beings from the One-True-God; it is not a history book. It has left the science, arts and other fields, pertaining to material and physical realms, open to be dealt with without restraint till they don’t interfere with the above realms.

I think you understand now.

Further to my above comments I have to add that the Revealed Book (Quran) is not a book of names of persons or places; neither it claims to be a text book of science or history. It is appropriate if one sees the world atlas to locate Japan or a list of scientists for Archimedes and of course one could Google for both. The Revealed Book (Quran) does not prohibit one to do a little research.

It is a mistake if one consults the Revealed Book (Quran) in this connection

It is not at all a superstition to believe in the existence of Japan or Archimedes.
How such a thought occurred to you? Please

Atheists! Please don’t label others as “stupid” or “delusional”

I think instead of labeling others as “stupid” or “deluded” that you rightly said just makes the person mad and less likely to hear one’s point of view; I think the right approach is that one should give one’s good reasons and arguments and tell the other person that his point of view is unreasonable.

Congratulating Pope Francis

March 14, 2013

I would like to congratulate the Catholics for having their Pope as their new religious leader.

I think leading a majority denomination on the Religion side he should seize the opportunity to play a role for uniting religion on truth through an open dialogue.

Religion should be cleared from mythical creeds, irrational dogmas and superstition to salvage humanity from its existing ethical, moral and spiritual throes.
