Father of Western Economics Took his Best Ideas from Sharia Law

Without debating the specific premises upon which this article stands, namely, that Persia did it first, I don't like the title, that western economic theory is based upon sharia, especially when one considers sharia is based upon the ten commandments, or at least from which it derives it's authority or legitimacy.

Why do those who oppose Christianity embrace Islam? Is it because they hate God? Those who love the Devil know not whom they serve, for he will destroy them as surely as he would destroy all of God's creation. 

I don't know enough about the history of Islam, or Persia, to debate which civilization is "better", which seems to be the thrust of the argument. Whether the Persian Empire was greater than that of say, the Romans, or that of the Occident. Suffice it to say, the Persian Empire did not survive, neither did the Roman. The history of whether western civilization evolves, adapts, and survives has yet to be written. The influence of Islam on the west is primarily adverse, regardless of redeeming societal value. Let us not forget, that Islam, like Christianity, is an eastern religion. It's the descendants of the Roman Empire, which embraced Christianity, which gave rise to western civilization. Modern Judaism, which sprang from the Ashkani tribe, not hereditary Jews, and Islam have no basis for any claim upon the western world.

Even if the Devil himself, were to lay claim to the entire world, which is rightfully his, he cannot lay claim to the church of God, the body of Christ. Of which , neither Judaism nor Islam have any part, except an uncommon history, and upon which Western civilization is based, notwithstanding the bastardization of church doctrine by paganism, the great cathedrals of Europe bearing witness.

Nice article, but the argument of which civilization is better is irrelevant, except upon which to reflect, and the dominance of the west is well established fact. The irony is that the same forces at work to enslave the entire world, are also those at work in the resurgence of Israel and now Isis. The age old method of Muslims migrating to a region, and then by reproduction laying claim to the land is now being assisted by the open bloodshed of militant Islam. This, too, shall pass, and the end of him who is the chief antagonist and enemy of man has already been written, 

"He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!" (Revelation 22:20 ESV)

You Say You Want a Devolution? by Robert Gore | STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

Excellent commentary on the factors that have dominated US foreign expansion since WWII, and before that domestic expansion capped off by the US Civil War.

Decentralization, is the key, of course. When the Berlin wall came down in 1989, it left capitalism, or at least a form of it with little competition except police states. Communist governments are the worst centralized states, which is their weakness, and corruption is a characteristic result. This doesn't mean socialist capitalism is a viable system, privatizing profits and socializing losses. It has the same weakness. Free markets are decentralized, which lower taxes and less government spending provides. Try telling that to a social capitalist.

The internet of things has the potential to transform life on this earth, let's hope it's a peer to peer system, and not one controlled by the NSA. They're already one step ahead.

Thanks for a thought provoking article.

Plunging Manufacturing Numbers Mean That It Is Time To Hit The Panic Button For The Global Economy

It's all a fairy tale to you anyway, so if it didn't happen, or it's all made up, what is it to you?

It's a rhetorical question, you idiot! You and I both know why. You reject the truth of God's Word, and as if that isn't enough, you delight in ridiculing those who do believe.

I think that says enough about you as a person, despicable and uncouth, the worst human nature has to offer. Oh, let's be tolerant! Yeah, right, towards everyone except believers of the truth. I'll gladly accept your mocking, and be thankful for the blessing it is to be counted in the same company as the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God Almighty, creator of Heaven and Earth and all that is in them.

Thank you for your comment, sir!

Recession 2016: In Some States, A Very Deep Economic Downturn Has Already Arrived

we could mint a trillion dollar coin, march over to the fed and pay off the national debt, but that doesn't address the over $200T in unfunded federal obligations.
However, it goes a long way by not paying $500B in interest payments every year.
In fact, it would be a good start.

Recession 2016: In Some States, A Very Deep Economic Downturn Has Already Arrived

you're correct up to a point. most have to work, some are just greedy. most of the greedy ones are already sucking off of productive labor. the tipping point comes when there aren't enough productive workers to support the non-productive ones. guess what happens to the non-worker, then. the concern today is that we've already reached that point, and the decline will accelerate, assisted by a destructive social agenda of divide and conquer. The only cohesion of these dynamics being a chief instigator, the devil. who gets the credit for much of the greed and avarice, among other things, but not all, since humans have a tendency to muck things up all by themselves. It's in the unmucking where we tend to find ourselves, and wherein the devil lies in wait. some things never change, like the truth of god's word, the source of good and the antidote for evil.

The Financial Apocalypse Accelerates As Middle East Stocks Crash To Begin The Week

Claudia, first of all, the veracity and authenticity of god's word is as good as it gets, barring some new discovery of ancient texts. God's word is the greatest gift God has given to man. It was first written in the stars, from whence we get the twelve constellations, for each one of the tribes of Israel, and the five visible planets. During the Roman persecutions, whole books of the bible were memorized and these individual scribes then travelled and wrote verbatim what they had memorized. It wasn't up to the emperor what was written.

Secondly, and regarding proof, 

"Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” (John 20:29 ESV)

"But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”— (1 Corinthians 2:9 ESV)

Regardless of whether you believe the truth of god's word, you're casting a wide net in your skepticism, and assume much regarding whether someone is brainwashed. I could say the same and ask who taught you there is no god, but I already know the answer, it's the god of this world, as I stated previously.

Logically, then, if there is a supernatural ruler of this world, and the arch enemy of the one true god, it only makes sense that he would refute the truth and do everything in his power so that no one would believe. 

On the other hand, if there is no god, and no devil, then it should be enough for good people to do the right thing. However, that is not what we're seeing. Psychopaths in high places have put a system in place that is increasing wealth and income disparity at levels never seen before.

We could discuss the nature of man, but that get's into endless discussion. I prefer to keep things simple, and believe the truth. 

"but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God." (1 Corinthians 1:23-24 ESV)

The history of man is one of conquest and man's rising up against oppression. One can study places and events, but one will never know why things happen the way they do, without a thorough knowledge of the truth of God's word, the standard against which all else is judged, otherwise, everything is relative, and moral relativism is what allows man to justify doing evil.

Let's pray there is a god, because without him, we're stuck in the stone age for all time, tribe warring against tribe. I for one, refuse to follow after men, and follow the savior from sin, the man, Jesus Christ.

You decide who to follow.

I got the answer to gun crime - Page 2 - The RadioReference.com Forums

The research is inconclusive, which I checked before replying to you. The point is not who is more christian. I think a point can be made the US is the largest sponsor of terrorism in the world. Recent examples include Hillary's overthrow of a democratically elected government in Guatemala, resulting in the humanitarian refugee crisis in Latin America, Obama's overthrow of a democratically elected government in Ukraine, the Gulf Wars, Libya, and the proxy war with Russia in Syria.

There are Christians in China and North Korea, but it's outlawed. The point I was trying to make to make is Communists are godless. Technically, I suppose you're correct, for the wrong reason. Communism collapsed in Russia, which outlawed religion. If Putin reversed the state position on religion, that's all fine and good, it's still a thugocracy.

It's irrelevant what governments do, as a case can be made the US is the most godless when looked at from a spiritual perspective. Waging war is not godlike, and since Reagan, the US has pursued an imperialist war agenda.

The point is, this country was founded on a principle of religious freedom, not freedom from religion. There are some who make a religion of being anti christian. Christians and Christianity are under attack worldwide, while Islamists are being coddled.

Did you know the assailant who ambushed the police officer in Philadelphia has pledged allegiance to Islam?

I've made this point on here before, anyone pointing a finger at Christians as the cause of wars and bloodshed is only a useful idiot at best, and an agent of Satan at the core of the argument.

Thanks for the correction about Russia, and I'll counter that the comparison the US is irrelevant. Again, the point isn't about governments, it's about the people. Governments, I think, are inherently evil, a fact about which the founding fathers were all too keenly aware. It's only a shame that in this country how far we are removed from those originating principles, a matter that was not without controversy then, nor will it be as the nation navigates through these singularly troublesome geopolitical and economic times.

It would be enough to live in peace and prosper, however, it also appears that the hand of those who would profit off of another's labor needs to be checked from time to time, unless you don't value your freedom. Freedom, which, by the way, is God given, and not provided by man.
