The main difference between Islamic finance and conventional banking lies in the Sharia principles, which govern how Islamic banks operate. Sharia law requires profits to be shared and bans investment in industries related to alcohol, gambling, tobacco, pornography or weapons, as well as prohibiting the charging of interest. Instead of mortgage loans, for example, an Islamic bank would buy a house and sell it to a would-be homeowner at a premium using fixed monthly instalments. In many ways it's an ethical investor's dream.

The main difference between Islamic finance and the cobwebs in my head are the Sharia principles, which govern how my abnormal brain operates. Sharia law requires my brain to be shared and bans rational thought related to alcohol, gambling, tobacco, pornography or weapons, as well as prohibiting normal interaction with humans. Instead of normal wiring, for example, my brain would buy a vowel and sell it to a would-be Jeopardy! contestant at a premium using wampum. In many ways it's psychiatrist's dream.

Alcohol, gambling, tobacco are addictions Piacere, they are not rational really. They are just adaptive responses to a maladaptive world. To make it seem better, to pacify and peace-afy us. The porno is more complicated, and weapons is a desire for power over a world that leaves us little input and choices into anything. Sharia inspired banking is different from our financial system and ways of thinking capitalistic materialism. Maybe some of the saints will have to come back as psychiatrists when the new world order has to submit to the eternal world order.

I am under the impression that sharia law applies if you take out a loan from them and it suprercedes our laws? How does that work?

mornin' gina. I was making a funny at your expense. I disagree with the second sentence of your post as would most clinicians, sociologists, rehab counsellors and psychologists. They are actually maladaptive responses to a core issue and not so much in response to any outside influence (the world).

but I digress...and have taken the thread off topic. sorry.

and it's "piacere", lower case "p".

Actually, you haven't taken the thread off topic at all.

This is an uber-religious reaction that is impractical in the real world. Attitudes like this lead to the prohibition of things that urge non-conformist principles that so many human beings are born with. I don't know if gina is a member of the Muslim faith, but that one sentence reads no different to me than a hardcore Christian denomination's prohibition of the same things.

Do those things lead to addictions? Sure. In some people. However, if a religion thinks I'm godless because I enjoy a scotch after dinner, then that particular denomination of any faith has more problems with reality than I do.
