Evolution doesn't contradict anything in the Qur'an in my opinion. The only areas where people think it contradicts Quranic verses are when the Qur'an is still popularly interpreted in archaic, outdated ways that contradict not just evolution, but most modern science. Empirical and observational ev...

Question - why have islamic countries made slavery illegal? Allah explicitly approves of slavery in the Quran and offers his own set of rules. Because you know...not all of us are Qur'an literalists and wish to remain in pre-medieval era. Slavery is simply morally despicable and even in Muhammad's ...

I would love to have a modern version of the F-104 Starfighter in my airforce. I love the sleek look of that aircraft. I wouldn't recommend it. The trend of fighters from the 4th generation onward is maneuverable aircraft with very low wing loading. The F-104 is literally the opposite - its tiny wi...

I think we already established that that website is an outright unreliable source for information about the Qur'an?

So I decided to modernise my airforce a bit to keep up with the hordes of Raptors and F-35s that appear in some RPs. With my nation being more stable than Russia, I thought that developing the T-50/PAK FA around the same time the US developed the Raptor would be reasonable. For my fighter numbers, ...

Israel's "atrocities" are nowhere close to the oppression of ethnic Palestinians that occurs in countries like Lebanon, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia. Even Israel treats them better than the people of any of those Muslim-dominated countries do, in general. I'm not inherently against Israel. I ...

I've always found that to be a rather hypocritical stance. There doesn't seem to be as much global outrage against the oppression of Assyrians, Kurds, Copts, and Berbers. ok then let me say it like this "Islam is against oppression", and if Muslims understand their Qur'an then they would ...

Hijab I don't see as some Arab custom. Islam is perfection. It doesn't need to be westernized. It needs to be followed correctly without any cultural input.

I don't see the point of a Mach 3 transport. A transport aircraft will most likely never need to fly that fast. Is it worth having/sharing on the off-chance that the capability would be useful, do you think? That capability isn't realistically that useful. It's just transporting materiel, and that'...

I'm finding it hard to believe that switching from a 125 mm to 152 mm gun wouldn't represent a statistically significant change in ammunition capacity. You would lose likely less than one third of the stowage, but part of the upside is that many targets will require fewer rounds to kill, be suppres...

Which of the Soviet/Russian fighters would be a good choice for a modern mainline fighter? If you're looking for a fourth-generation fighter, one of the versions of the MiG-29 or Su-27 would work out pretty well. If you would instead prefer a 4.5/4++ generation fighter, which are generally upgraded...

Here's a stupid question: Assuming that my country had some sort of ground-based integrated radar system that could cut through most passive stealth systems, could our front-line fighters (Su-30MKI), or just a generic, good-quality 4.5 gen fighter-plane, hold their own against a more modern, fifth-...
