This one gets a double uffda:


  1. Diamond and other jewelry is not mentioned with emphasis to love and to possess other than the references made that the poor has share from profit of this sales known as Zakat in Islam something amounting to 2.5% on the simple arithmetic of the profit and loss.How ever, it is rather considered for women to love and decorate themselves with Diamonds and other precious metals in Islam and that is allowed.Now from this Quaranic context what Muslims like us ,Men and women would do in buying this precious stone and to be in romance that flourish because of Feminine Quest for attachment with Masculine adoration and leaving legacy behind?My own answer is.that I also practice to present self authored books or creative works to women of Interest that soothes the eyes of masculine lust for erotic indulgence. I hope my poems would be deemed worth of real Diamonds and allow me to be at Occasions where precious stone Diamond would shines me.Could Poems be legal; tender in Diamond Trade?Muhammad Zamiluddin Khan’92,HSPH,a.k.a.Zamil Khan

    If he wants to save me 50% for a stupid reason, I’m OK with it. But I wonder if it’s just marketing or if he really believes it.

    Lots of valuable stuff will just be lying around once the True Believers get Raptured. Can’t we wait until then and collect this stuff for free?

    I think the rapture’s only supposed to take about 244 people or maybe it’s 244,000. It depends on how liberal you are with your Bible interpretation. The rapture probably happened already and nobody noticed it. Most True Believers are introverts.

    Anyway, I think this is a brilliant ad and whether he’s a believer or not, the fact that he can poke fun at it is great!

    Maybe it’s like the value of movies. If you want to see it now, you pay regular price. To save money, just wait till it’s available on DVD. Of course, post-rapture movies will be cheaper still.

    I’m waiting for the rapture to come to my local discount church before I see it.

    Chris Hanson: You’re on the right track; Revelation VII says 12,000 members from each of the twelve tribes will make the cut, for a total draft of 144,000. Modern Christians, especially those who are anti-semitic, have a hard time with this, and some may get angry if you ask about it. Fun.

    One of my favorite bumper stickers: “In case of Rapture, can I have your Car?”

    How many shopping days are left until the rapture? And wouldn’t we expect the prices to drop even more, the closer we get?
