    This is only possible because of the American presence,of course. What in the world would these people do without us being there??? I haven't got a clue,really I don't!!! LOL.

      Jesse – Do you know how were the people behind the great Indian empires in 1200s to 1600s? Those people came from Afghanistan. The point I'm making is that Afghanistan can self-sustain by itself (it's just matter of time).

      Afghanistan has been in war torned for almost last 2 decades that's why its taking long from the country to get back on its feet.

      You know, I am not a muslim, and I understand what you are trying to say. But, I think in attempting to provide support for the point you were arguing for, you did the opposite as well. Sanatan says that everything is god. Your perfectly balanced quantum rectangle would be an example of this, would it not? See, lets wipe the rectangle clean: a blank rectangle. That whole rectangle represents entire existence: and THEREFORE CORRESPONDS TO THE TRUTH. Is truth not the statement of what exists?

      But this could just be human bs

      I think part of the problem is that we all have different understandings of what god exactly is -or isn't. What god is thought of in location A, might be different than was god is thought of in location B.

      All you are today is how you were brought up as.

      We are all biased, and unless you can prove that you are an exception, then I refuse to believe your attempt to tell people that you know what is right, because of what you were brought into this world with, whereas they are wrong, for some belief that you seem to hold to.

      Are hindus the real terrorists? How was islam introduced to the middle east? I can fight fire with fire too. Muslims are just brainwashed by their religion. They automatically assume everything based on what they think.

      (also, for what language does Hun linguistically represent what you say it does? and han and hin?)
