  • Is it true that you can poison yourself if you take vitamin C and shrimp or prawns at the same time ?


    In Taiwan , a woman suddenly died unexpectedly with signs of bleeding from her ears, nose, mouth & eyes. After a preliminary autopsy, it was diagnosed death due to arsenic poisoning death. Where did the arsenic come from?

    The police launched an in-depth and extensive investigation. A medical school professor was invited to come to solve the case.

    The professor carefully looked at the contents from the deceased’s stomach, in less than half an hour, the mystery was solved. The professor said: ' The deceased did not commit suicide and neither was she murdered, she died of accidental death due to ignorance! '

    Everyone was puzzled, why accidental death? The professor said: ' The arsenic is produced in the stomach of the deceased. ‘The deceased used to take ' Vitamin C ' everyday, which in itself is not a problem. The problem was that she ate a large portion of shrimp/prawn during dinner. Eating shrimp/prawn is not the problem that’s why nothing happened to her family even though they took the same shrimp/prawn. However at the same time the deceased also took ' vitamin C ‘, that is where the problem is!

    Researchers at the University of Chicago in the United States , found through experiments, food such as soft-shell shrimp/prawn contains a much higher concentration of - five potassium arsenic compounds.

    Such fresh food by itself has no toxic effects on the human body! However, in taking ' vitamin C ' , due to the chemical reaction, the original non-toxic - five potassium arsenic (As anhydride, also known as arsenic oxide, the chemical formula for As205) changed to a three potassium toxic arsenic (ADB arsenic anhydride), also known as arsenic trioxide, a chemical formula (As203), which is commonly known as arsenic to the public!

    Arsenic poisoning have magma role and can cause paralysis to the small blood vessels, inhibits the activity of the liver and fat necrosis change Hepatic Lobules Centre, heart, liver, kidney, intestine congestion, epithelial cell necrosis, telangiectasia. Therefore, a person who dies of arsenic poisoning will show signs of bleeding from the ears, nose, mouth & eyes.

  • Aren't we wasting lots time trying to convince each other ?

    The Christian tries to convince the atheists and Muslims that Jesus is the only way to God.

    The Muslims will stake their lives that Mohammad is the only true and final voice for this generation .

    Christians place their faith entirely on God and the Bible.

    Muslims do the same with Allah and the Quran.

    Neither side will budge one bit.

    I have yet to see one athiest say: "Right. I'm convinced by the Christians or Muslims. "

    Instead, what do you see ?

    Several thumbs down.

    Will there be a case of a Christian saying : " Wow. That's convincing. I'll renounce my Christian faith and put on a Muslim scarf tomorrow. I'll eat halal fod from this day..."

    What do you see here ?

    More thumbs down and more accusations that Mohammed is a liar and false prophet and other derogatory remarks.

    Will the evolutionist be ever convinced by the creationist ?

    No !

    The other way around ? Never!

    The minds of almost everyone are made up.

    Shall we ask other types of qns ?

  • Is the Quran wrong or the Bible wrong , partly or fully ?

    Christians believe that the Holy Bible is God's inspired Word for mankind .

    Muslims believe that the Holy Quran is Allah's word for mankind.

    Who is right ? Don't be too quick to answer.

    I know Muslims will come forward and say Islam is the only true religion.

    Christians will say Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.

    That makes Muhamad a liar and a false prophet.

    Muslims say there is no such thing as son of God for God has no son.

    So the Bible is false because the Quran is the true word of God.

    I personally find it strange that Quran must go to great lenghts to disprove Christianity and mention about Jews and Christians quite a fair bit in the Koran: mostly not good things, though.

    False, true, true, false...........

    My proposal is that Christians leave Muslims alone and Muslims leave Christians alone.

    Go and share your faith with others who are not of such strongly opposing views. Perhaps we'll have more peace.

    Agree ?

    Joy to the world!

  • When a former Muslim converts to a different faith, what happens ?

    From what I know , they will be persecuted and ostracized.

    Just to share a personal experience.

    Years ago, I had a Bible study leader who was an ex-Muslim.

    He was badly persecuted by his family. He was a very good leader and knows the Bible very well.

    A few related qns are :

    1) Does Allah give humans a freedom to choose whether to belief in Him ?

    2) If no, why ? Then we are not humans , but robots with no choice but to obey.

    3) If yes, why are former Muslims being persecuted when they convert to another faith ?

    That contradicts the fact that Allah gave man freedom of choice, which should include freedom to reject Him after believing and finding that it is not really what the person wanted.

    4) Which verses in the Quran said they should be persecuted ?

  • What's your understanding of 'days' in Genesis Ch 1 ?

    Some say that it is not a literal '24 hr day'

    Some say 'day' refers to ages or millions or even billions of years.


    Maybe God used evolution to 'create the world and humans" ?

    What's your take on this issue ?
