Atheist Youtuber converts to Islam
« on: April 01, 2017, 06:10:11 PM »


Personally, I'm not looking to convert anytime soon, but I understand Jacklyn's reasoning here.  And I've gotta say, she's making a great positive change in her life.  After that shameful Playboy photoshoot, I think it would really help her Spiritual Self to lead a more modest life.  Plus, she'd attract a more morally decent audience.

It's good to have a structure and purpose to life, and Islam really helps in building a peaceful, stable society.  Some countries don't do that so well, but that's only because they don't follow Islam correctly.  Salam means peace, so 'I-slam' literally means "I'm at peace."

There's been a lot of friction lately between predominantly white Western people and predominantly non-white Middle Eastern people, and it would really help smooth things over if Western people would meet them halfway.  Go to the same mosques, learn arabic, wear the same clothes, eat the same kebabs, etc.  If we can look past our cultural differences and give more respect and deference to our Muslim brothers and sisters and their deeply-held convictions, that would make the world a far more peaceful place.

Sarcasm on your part?  Did she do it for the boy?

Yeah, that totally isn't an April Fool's gag.

Heaven is no more than a carrot on a string at the end of a tunnel; Hell is no more than a gunbarrel at the back of your head.  When we are good people for the sake of being good people, we\'ll have no further use for religion.

April Fools, of course

I like her videos, but she can't act! Never bought it for a second.
Q for theists; how can there be freewill and miracles? And, how can prayer exist in an environment as regimented as "gods plan"?

Imho, April Fools jokes are supposed to be slightly hyperbolic or sarcastic.  There's supposed to be a bit of a tell.  You're not trying to pull of a masterful deception, you're trying to say ludicrous (or at least implausible) stuff in a tongue-in cheek manner.  The only people who are supposed to fall for April Fools jokes are actual fools.

The tell was evident when she started laughing at herself for making the statement, "I want to be a man's property.  There's something oddly romantic about that."  Her laugh actually struck me as a bit forced like she was waving a flag and pleading with the audience, "OMG, please don't take me seriously.  I know I'm supposed to appear serious for the purpose of the joke, but the idea that you may think I actually feel that way is not the image I want anyone to be left with.  Please don't take this too seriously."

For me, I had the feeling, that she was unconsciously needing to confess.  "I want to do an effective fool's joke, but not at my own expense, so I'm waving a huge tell at you right now."

And it doesn't even matter.  People do change religions, choose one, or give up one all the time.

It doesn't matter?  If she really did choose to become a Muslim, then I have to change my whole fantasy structure about her.

Your fantasies aren't my concern.
