Mormons and Muslims

There is another similarity between Mormons and Muslims that I have not mentioned yet. One thing they both do is fast. The idea behind fasting is to make yourself suffer so that you can feel compassion for those who are hungry on a regular basis. Also, if you want something really badly, then it is…

Syria, Iran and economic sanctions

The United States and Israel have put sanctions on Syria and Iran, among other countries. Sanctions means that Iran and Syria are not allowed to enter into business agreements with America or Israel. Unfortunately, in my opinion, sanctions always hurt the workers in a country, rather than the leaders who make up the unpopular policies…

American Idol finale

Last night American Idol finished its 11th season. Or is it 12th? I’ve lost track.

Three similarities between Mormons and Muslims

The name Mormons refers to the adherents of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The name Muslims refers to adherents of Islam. As I have learned more about both religions, I have noticed some striking similarities. One is that both of the Prophets which began their religions were uneducated men and the followers…

What’s wrong with modern society

A great case can be made for why the two world wars that were fought during the 20th century were catastrophes from which we will never recover. Apart from the obvious toll on human life, much societal damage was inflicted as a result of these two epic wars. Especially the Second World War unleased societal…
