Religion Quiz

Ah yes… the quizzes are back…

You scored as Islam. Your beliefs are most similar to those of Islam. Do more research on Islam and possibly consider taking the shahadah and officially becoming a Muslim, if you aren’t already.

Despite the actions of some – who go against the teachings of Islam – Islam is a religion of peace; the word "islam" means "peace through submission to God." "Muslim" means "one who submits to God." Islam is the third of the three Abrahamic faiths, and it shares much with Judaism in Christianity; its differences are the acceptance of Muhammad as the last and final prophet, and the oneness of God – in other words, that Jesus, though he was a revered prophet, was not in fact God, and only one God exists. Apparently the Taliban could not read (though their name means "students"), because the Qur’an states that men and women are equal as believers, and that all believers should be educated and seek knowledge. Modesty in dress and behavior is required in Islam for both men and women to preserve the values of society and move the emphasis from superificial appearance to intelligence, knowledge, and God.

Democracy beaten!

Last Saturday night Neil Madhvani and I went back to school for the 40th Annual Elizabethan Union Dinner Debate. I attend every year having been involved in debating during my own school days.

The pre-debate dinner was, as usual, a rather surreal affiar. Back in the school refectory with 16 and 17 year olds always makes one feel out-of-place. Unsurprisingly the menu was a little predictable – I think it’s only changed twice since the first one I attended, as a pupil in 1997.

This year’s motion was “this house believes that democracy is so good, everyone should be made to have it.” Neil and I were tasked with opposing it. A few hacks at Imperial College Union would probably get upset at some of the arguments I used to demonstrate that democracy is dominated by manipulation of the political process. Nevertheless, we won, convincingly.

Neil has published a photo album of the event. They’re not that great, however, having been taken, with Neil’s camera, by Mr Liam Hargadon who used to be my form tutor.

Apparently, I’m a Republican…
