What do you think of the paradoxical presence, both as a sponsor and as a restaurant, of Mc Donald's at Expo2015? Would you go to eat there during the visit, being aware of what the values of Expo2015 are? And do you think, considered the strength of the brand and its distribution capabilities in the world, that McDonald's could become, in the future, a concrete solution to the problem of feeding the planet (obviously agreeing to respect the values of proper nutrition from the nutritional point...

The report in the Washington Times indicates that, upon approaching Taliban fig...

Is Muhammad predicted in the Bible?

HardRockHallelujah
juverina

In order to prove that Muhammad is a prophet, Muslims often claim that Muhammad is predicted in the Jewish and Christian scriptures (The Old Testament and New Testament) respectively. This claim isn't just made as "more proof" that Muhammad is a true prophet, but the Qur'an itself offers this as an argument for Muhammad's prophet-hood in 2 places: Surah 7:157 - Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered prophet, whom they find written in what they have of the Torah and the Gospel, who...

I think that new new recordings of old music should be left just as they were. Stop trying to digitally re-master everything. I love Louis Armstrong and would love to hear the scratchiness of the old recordings....
