Before i respond to you or anyone else, i will make it known here that somethings i just wont say, but give bits & pieces (the "secret-society" bunnin' will out on me btw)
Peace Simon I:
"Can a falcon mate with a dove and have offspring? The answer to this will give you the heads up with what is natural and whats not.
Animals procreate for survival of their species and it seems that they have no choice.They seem to act on 'animal instincts'.Humans, it seems, can choose."
Alot of things have changed since man as well as the animal kingdom have degenerated themselves. Sure, a falcon can mate with a dove, but to my understanding it was not always like that. Just as in this time man strikes down an animal for food, and animals eat this one and that one; these things have not always been. I am just going by what the ancients said, and i do hold it to be true as i am examining and analyzing. "Survival of the fittest" and things of that nature are 'new' in the sight of mama nature, and whether we debate if what im saying is truthful or not, she knows what exactly took place MILLIONS and TRILLIONS of yrs ago.
"To me, 'sin' is only connected to the 'WHY' you have offspring with another person.If you are wanting to be with someone based on their race and think this is some cure for racism or racial prejudice then I could see that this would be a 'sin'. Maybe we are at a place in our evolution where we are not capable of being fully aware of why we are with someone of a different race and so it would be best to leave it alone.Who can judge."
To me, i think that if we all had the answers to WHO is the original man, HOW did the first 'other-than' come about' and why we did what we did, the world would be a better place. We must try to find out the beginning of things and not get caught up in the afterwards. The truth of the matter is, it doesnt matter if this one loves the other one, and that colorblind foolishness; ALL things in existence have their OWN planes of existence by the creator, who is the AUTHOR of love....true love
"One thing I dont understand,though, is why people allways try and say that being 'equal' means we are all the same...just like saying that our freedom of chooice and 'group' belongs with the 'same' group and we are the 'same as' animals. If we are not entirely the same as the animal kingdom or the plant kingdom(in our basic function)then how are we different?Tell me the difference and let me know where the sin is involved."
SPIRITUALLY we are different from the animal kingdom in the divine truth/fact that i have a spirit and they donot (only soul and body). I have the mineral, plant, animal essence all within me; i am the ; 'CROWN' of creation. Physically we all came from the earth and do have some of the same functions becuz we are all inter-connected. As far as the "sin", i will repeat that everything has their own components given to them by the creator to help in this vast creation that was already created. Mixing this and that is OUR creation, not the one whom i came from. ALL things follow a pattern, thus ALL things should be able to trace themselves back to their origin, but when mixing comesa into play, drastic things can take place.
"You have talked about animal kingdom and each species/groups' alignment and tried to make a comparisson with human beings and their alignment as though they are the same, but they are not if you study the reproductive possibilities.Even your Koran talks of the difference between man and animal"
I just wanted to make the point that if it was natures WILL that all things should be mumbo-jumbo, it would have been like that from the get-go, but it wasnt; therefore that should tell us something. If you read everything i said to isciple and what im saying to you, u would see that man has EVERYTHING within already ie. protoplast, mineral, eart, animal, vegetable, etc the ingredients. BTW, just so you know, my understanding is from a sufi pointt of view. Peace & Love
