Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

You can read All and compare.
But, do not blame God if you reject his Salvation and go to Hell.
Do not say to God, "I do not have chance to read bible, no one preached to me."
You can tell by the red colour that this is obviously another satanic post by a 'christain'.
'Rejecting' your 'god given brain' to follow some unproved, unprovable bit of 1650 year old propganda, does that seem that smart? :P I guess that just following a book is farily easy, actually thinking about things is bit too complex.
Dont say to the gods 'but I was sure that the christains were right, they said they were in that book!'.

For me you are the most confused guy here. I feel you need to clarify your stand first to yourself. Some time back you were atheist, then agnostic and yesterday you became believer in God. Wooow. Another time you dont believe in any holy book, but you keep copy of all books in your system. You dont believe in vedas because you believe in any book but quoting me "Aham Brahmasmi" and asking me to go and search the meaning. In your quote meaning you claiming yourself as God.... "God is Me" .... Are you in you buddy?
Some of your quotes for your quick reference.

I don't know why. I was a religious boy since my teenage, and then it was my belief system itself which made me open my mind and eyes and seek the answer not just in books but around myself.
There's no answer to any such thing so far, to me.

In fact, being a Hindu, (be it agnostic) I could only take one wonderful thing out of my belief system, and that was the mention in every single scripture of the message - "Aham Brahmasmi." That meant, God is in me / God is Me / God is everywhere. Call it anything. Very simple.

I belong to a belief system Hinduism where it is considered to have one creator OM and many many many prophets or avatars AND my childhood sweetheart and now gf is a devout Muslim (beat it), BUT I refuse to blindly believe either ways. I got holy books in my system too but they don't let me KNOW.
I want to know ... like the other guy in this thread.

No, there are already dozens of self proclaimed Gods out there.
For me, it doesn't at all matter and won't ever.
I was born free, would stay free and would die free

As long as I believe that there is just one highest power up above, somewhere or everywhere which can't even be "discussed" by mere human beings, leave alone the claim of being "owned" and written down in books; there can't be any holy books for me.
What exactly were you trying to prove with those links?
From the first link:
The Quran, which Muslims believe was revealed to Muhammad through Gabriel (Jibrāʾīl).
From the second link:
Muslims believe the Quran to be verbally revealed through angel Jibrīl (Gabriel) from God to Muhammad gradually over a period of approximately twenty-three years beginning in 610 CE, when Muhammad was forty, and concluding in 632 CE, the year of his death.

Sorry its a old topic....
See even i didnt write anything you reach to this level of punishing me. Think the temper you will have when really such book get published and the content is really very nasty/objectionable, everyone around your neighbour, your friends start asking you question and being in different country you can not do anything against me. And suddenly I am standing infront of you. Surely you will hit me hard I wont get up.
Here we are talking about the person who wrote book on international level and wrote all wrong about the person muslims love more then their family. Its human nature, anybody can loose his temper and will do something he shouldn't do. I never said what ever fatwa was issued was right, same time i am also not with that person who wrote such book which cause violence in public and refused to revert.
People will also have fear if they dont condemn hard for such acts, it will become practice in future and hard to control.
Because there are things people don't completely understand, and sometimes situations that can't be quite easily explained happen.
but that's no reason to believe that some kind of supernatural entity was the cause. In fact, even if that WERE the case, it would raise just as many unexplainable questions.
Sigh... Christianity is not the only religion in the world.
Yes, I am aware of this. In fact, if you had read the the bit in parentheses that immediately followed that quote, you would find "(or the Torah or the Koran or any other similar book)."
Its bad form to make a comment on something without reading, especially in a religion thread.
Well in this case you could try hinduism - it is said to be oldest active religion in the world.
I really hate using words like proof and evidence in religion threads because it makes me sound like another militant anti-religionist, but like most religions in the world, there's as little evidence to support Hinduism's claims as there is to support Abrahamic religion claims. Being the oldest surviving religion doesn't really mean anything substantial.
If someone wants to believe God or Jesus or Allah or Brahaman or the FSM or whoever created the world, or if they want to believe that the world sits on the head of an elephant balanced on the back of a turtle, that's their business. My only point is that I don't understand WHY an otherwise intelligent human being would put any stock in such things.
ShaanAli, I've give you points for persistence, but you'll lose just as many if not more points for lack of logic.

You havent thought this though in respect of your position on evolution. True, there is no hard 'proof' of mans evolution from hominids. But there is plently of evidence (to the point of 'proof') of evolution in general.
The evidence of evolution shows us that man is an evolved, not created creature. Unless you want to change 'god does not lie', you've got only 2 options.
#1- Humans evolved. The koran is wrong.
#2- Humans were created, and the evidence of evolution is a lie (and since god created everything, that means god is telling lies).
You can call it lose/lose.
BTW, nice to see that you finally gave up the 'god wrote the koran' and modified to to 'gabriel wrote the koran'. What a pity that I posted that when you were still insisting that 'god' wrote it.
Also, I found your marrige argument naive, misleading and out and out silly. In particular your obsession with "marry only one"....wow, how can you be so misleading? The rest of the passage refers to marriage to 'two and three or four'.....
