The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly known as the United Kingdom or Britain, is a sovereign state located off the north-western coast of continental Europe. The country includes the island of Great Britain, the north-ea... stern part of the island of Ireland, and many smaller islands. Northern Ireland is the only part of the UK that shares a land border with another state: the Republic of Ireland. Apart from this land border, the UK is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, with the North Sea in the east, the English Channel in the south and the Irish Sea in the west.The UK's form of government is a constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary system, and its capital city is London. The current British monarch—since 6 February 1952—is Queen Elizabeth II. The United Kingdom consists of four countries: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The latter three have devolved administrations, each with varying powers, based in their capital cities, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast, respectively. Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man are Crown dependencies and are not part of the UK. The United Kingdom has fourteen British Overseas Territories. These are remnants of the British Empire which, at its height in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, encompassed almost a quarter of the world's land mass and was the largest empire in history. British influence can be observed in the language, culture and legal systems of many of its former colonies   more

You know, I believe in God, but people have own beliefs.

I used to be an atheist. I also used to believe life only lives once. Deja vous changed that. A dream I had when I was 16 came true when I was 37. I experienced deja vous at the time. The only way to explain something happening to me, that I had a dream about 21 years earlier, was that life happens more than once. I don't think anyone has a good explanation about why we exist, unless they believe in some kind of higher power.

That's supposed to be '....Life only happens once.'

I ask you that if a Muslim goes in Fire without using any chemical on his body in front of world media and he is immune to burn in it, then will you all convert to Islam or not? If yes, then fix a time, a date and a place and start announcement for three month by electronic and print media in whole world that you all can know the truth of religion Islam and falsehood of all religions, because you are 5 billion and it is impossible that we enter in Fire for every Atheists and Non-Muslims on his desire for proving the truth of Islam.

God does exist. He is real... Do you ever ask a question on how we don't pay for air? How he created us and know us before we were born? READ THE BIBLE!
