Many people have been thinking about this question, and most of them will be composing their answer to it during Dr. Peek’s final later this morning… Maybe you can email Raven afterwards and ask her to let you see some of the other students’ essays!

Question by Daniel Dawning: Do Sunni, Shiites and Ismaelis all have Sufi mystics, or is Sufism connected to a specific sect?

What sect of Islam was the poet Rumi, or Nasrudin, or Al Hallaj. (I must admit, those are the only three Sufi names I know from their writings)

Best answer:

Answer by super-nova
There are no sects in Islam. Creating and altering the religion would not make them Muslims because they do not follow the Quran or Prophet Muhammed PBUH.

Prophet PBUH was not Shia or Sunni, he was A MUSLIM.

God hates those who divide the religion:

“As for those who divide their religion and break up into sects, you have no part in them in the least: their affair is with Allah: He will in the end tell them the truth of all that they did.” (Quran, 6:159)

Being a believer in Islam, you must declare that there is no God but God and Muhammed SAW is his messenger.

“…and be not amongst those who join gods with Allah and those who split up their Religion, and become sects – each party rejoicing in that which is with itself.” (Quran, 30:31-32)

Question by KingFrog.: Is consciousness physically connected to our brain tissue or our memories themselves?
The question I ask, is unanswerable. Yet I ask it to see people opinions and responses, for the consciousness will probibly be one of the last human mysteries we would ever accomplish to resolve.

Yet I’ve wondered, if we were scanned by an almost unlimitedly powerful supercomputer to the exact molecular detail of our body and brain, then we were vaporized and reconstructed in exact detail before we died, would I still be…”me” or “I”?

What if there were two of me?

and for those that think not, what about when we physically lose consciousness all of the time? what about amnesia?

Best answer:

Answer by Melissa
Read John Locke, David Hume, Derek Parfit, Daniel Dennett, and David Chalmers to understand consciousness.
