We Americans live for happiness, then why aren't we happy?
« on: October 30, 2005, 10:58:27 PM »
With Americans spending so much time trying to be happy, how come they are so unhappy?

With Americans spending so much time seeking pleasure and striving to fullfill their lowest desires, how come they are still not happy and pleased with themselves?

With Americans spending so much time chasing after true love how come Americans have such high divorce rates?

Why are so many American's on anti-depressants and sleeping pills?

...............................

please understand...

The life Americans are seeking is a mirage.

It's time to wake up and stop searching for that brief peace of mind you find in a sleeping pill. Allah is the Creator of peace, no Creator but Allah, Allah is the Creator of happiness, no Creator but Allah.  Allah is the Creator of all things and all conditions, and Allah gives to whom he pleases.

That view's reflective of a minority in society, of which isn't just applicable to American's. Everyone around the world shares the same desire to better their current position, however this doesn't mean that they are unhappy in the one that they're currently in.

Why are you talking about americans like you know everyone of them. You've said yourself your not a teacher, yet everyday it seems like your trying to teach us what is wrong with American society and what is perfect about Allah. This is the exactly the kind of descrimination Americans get accused of practicing, and yet you are doing it right now. Answer me this. Does Allah or your culture in general preach anything abou tolerance. Because in the past couple days all I've been hearing from you is about how American culture is wrong. What makes yours so perfect compared to ours. You act like you guys have a perfect society and arn't waiging wars, commiting crimes, are doing anything wrong. And that if we turn to Allah all are problems can be solved. We'll obviuosly that's not the case or they're wouldn't be so much suffering of the people that fallow him. I'm not saying American culture is better then yours, I'm just saying you can't simply judge ours just cause you think yours is right. Americans do that all the time, I know that, but that dosn't give you the right to do the same thing.

Man what the hell kind of question is that to ask? Please people of the international community do not take this guys words for the American state of mind, he has obviously still not yet developed the knowledge that life is what you make it. Only confused, depressed spoiled kids dwell on this petty negative thinking, I hope you can understand this and not sell us short. It's easy, I know.

America doesn't fly airplanes over Iraq, Afganistan, and have military operations in 100 countries around the world?  They haven't blown up anything in Iraq and Afganistan?  They haven't killed nearly 1,000,000 civilians in Iraq and Afganistan in just a short time?  America hasn't supported and aided Isreali Jews in their siezure of Palestinian land over the last century, and destroyed towns and villages throughout the regions of Lebonon (don't forget America's violent war there in the 80's), and Palestine?

...try critically thinking.

Last time I checked people wern't risking their lives to be with Allah. People risk their lives to come to America. If Allah is so perfect why are people leaving the middle east and are begging to come hear? Allah pretty much teaches hate for America yet a lot of forieners will risk everything just to come to America, and few would ever want to leave.
So in the end I say God Bless America.
And if you don't like it no one is forcing you to stay.

Being rich ain't gonna make you happy.  THe problem is because people take things for granted and don't appreciate what they have.
People want more and more.  They can't stop.  They need spiritual needs.

this bullshit Allah crap is the problem with the world....

too many assholes claiming they're "religious" and trying to tell others what to do

saying one is "religious" is the biggest cop-out in the world....... being a deeply religious person to me only shows weakness

dedicating your life to a religion is for weak-minded people because all they are doing is looking to nonsense for an answer

just confused people who don't know what else to do but ask for help and become a part of a cult

all religion is is a cult..... I've been to church, and I don't think people mumbling in unison and praying in a bulding is NOT what a cult does

dumbass religious people in America, our president and people like that who don't stop to realize that not everyone in America is like them
trying to tell gay people they can't marry, just bullshit like that..... nonsense, I'm sick of people telling others what to do

and this dick here who's fucking his boyfriend Allah is just a confused ass person to be on Allah's nutz so bad that it runs his life

if I'm not mistaken, all those filthy ass terrorists love Allah and kill innocent people and want Americans to all die because we have cable TV and bullshit like that because it's against "religious beliefs"

if they kill innocent people of their own, they are so stupid to say "Allah would've wanted it" yeah can't argue with that  ::)

so tell me, you love Allah, so it's obviously okay for someone to commit suicide and kill thousands at the same time in ALLAH's name, right?

since these terrorists kill in his name, it makes it okay cuz it's religious?

any wacky religious person is just pissed off at how their lives turned out and try to deprive anyone of fun

RELIGION will destroy the world, RELIGION is the root of all evil, and RELIGION is THEE reason why we are at war and why there are terrorists and why there is tension in the world

let you be Christian, Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, whatever the fuck, I don' t give a shit.....

P.S. - I don't mean to offend those who believe in God and all that (cause I do myself) but it's the crazy religious nutz who have lost all reality that I'm referring to

-First of all you were way off topic, you didn't answer my question.  My post was asking the question, with American's making happiness there goal in life, how come they aren't happy?

-Second of all, "religion" comes from the Arabic word "deen" which means, "way of life".  What you live for is what you worship.  My way of life used to be hip-hop at one time.  It was all I thought about from morning to evening, and if anyone said anything bad about hip-hop then I had a problem with them.  It dictated most of the way I dressed, thought, acted, etc.  So that was like my religion.  At another time, I used to live to get back with my x-girlfriend, that was my religion, I wanted to do whatever would please her.  Some people live for their country, man drew boundaries in the Earth and some people will live and die for what they've been told is "their land" and their leader.In this context, everyone has a religion, because everyone has a way of life, religion = way of life.[/i]  Some people skateboard all day, hang out with skaters, and they'll fight you if you try to say something about skaters or mess with one of their skater friends, that's their way of life, ya feel me?

-Under the context I have written about in the second point, your whole argument makes no sense.  If you want to rephrase it and talk about specifics and examples then we can, but please understand, everybody has a way of life.

.......I'm not threatened by your comments because I used to think like you did.  I'm white, American, I was raised Christian, I didn't even know a Muslim till after I graduated highschool a few years ago.  I never could accepted Christianity, and I used to think like you did, but that's because I was young and didn't really know what was out there, and I accepted what little knowledge I had encountered in my brief, life's history as eternal, absolute truth.
