Do you think GNHQ, you could possibly tell us why this thread was deleted.

Thanking you very kindly.

There were some dubious-looking links with no explanation.

j04 Tue 19-Jun-12 17:45:31

Oh blow! Missed them! hmm

soop Tue 19-Jun-12 18:31:02

Me too! When I'm not paying attention, all the interesting stuff gets deleted. Miffed!

I read it all....... can't remember anything! confused.

j04 Tue 19-Jun-12 18:49:59

Well, you're a lot of help! hmm

Ella46 Tue 19-Jun-12 19:13:58

Anytime Jings grin

It was about how things that science has recently discovered were predicted in the Q'ran. Can't remember exactly what they were.

I've thought about this some more.
The general feeling at GNHQ (and elsewhere) would seem to be that Christians don't mind their religion being made fun of, but other faiths do, or might do, so we can't have any of that!

Bags Tue 19-Jun-12 19:51:22

What I read didn't make much sense.

johanna Tue 19-Jun-12 19:56:14

What did you read? And where?

Bags Tue 19-Jun-12 19:59:54

The two toty threads that were deleted.

jeni Tue 19-Jun-12 20:03:07

It made as much sense as 'st john the divine's ' book of revelations, which my iPad said was revel stationsconfused
I suppose this will get deleted now!

So, read it quickly!

Bags Tue 19-Jun-12 20:18:40

I didn't have Revel Stations to compare it with.

We are delighted if anyone of any religion - or indeed no religion - wants to start or join a debate on the forums. But it's worth reading our netiquette guide - specifically this:

Religion & Spirituality

We have a forum for this and we welcome posts on all religions and none. We are, though, a discussion forum, not a site for sermons.

thankyou Cari.

Ella46 Tue 19-Jun-12 20:41:52

Ahh Yes! I remember now!! grin

Ariadne Tue 19-Jun-12 21:24:47

Now that, Cari, is something worth remembering for future reference! thank you.

jeni Tue 19-Jun-12 21:27:53

I'm to bed!
And frankly
' I couldn't give a damm! '
Tomorrow is another day!

Goodnight all!

I have not got a crescent moon either.
Have also not a croissant left for breakfast.. Oh, Lord PML

johanna Tue 19-Jun-12 22:04:51

I still do not know what toty's thread was about?
Can anybody tell me?
Was it a sermon?
What does Gari mean. ? Please enlighten me?

Anagram Tue 19-Jun-12 22:28:16

johanna. toty posted some passages from the Koran. Some comments were made. Offence was apparently caused and the original post(s) were removed, and one thread completely removed.

Annobel Tue 19-Jun-12 22:29:02

Well,it wasn't all that clear but it was sermonising about the 'truth' of the Q'ran by purporting to show that recent scientific discoveries were prefigured in the Q'ran. It wasn't opening a discussion and I don't think the OP could have coped with our scepticism.
