Hot Chick/Cool Woman

"Muhammad said, 'Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?' They replied in the affirmative. He said, 'This is the deficiency in her intelligence.'"

Don't you believe it!


This weeks Hot chick/Cool Woman is Eileen Collins, the first woman to command the Space Shuttle.

She was born in Elmira, New York in 1956. She always wanted to become a pilot. When she was a child, her parents often took her to the airport to see the planes. Eileen was a very good student. She earned a scholarship to attend Syracuse University. After college she went into the Air Force. The Air Force trained her to become a pilot. She learned to fly many different kinds of planes.
In 1991, Eileen Collins became an astronaut. She was the first woman to pilot the Space Shuttle. Colonel Collins is married and has a daughter. When she has free time she likes to run, play golf and go camping. After four space flights, Eileen Collins retired from NASA in 2006.

    nass,
    there are many things people can do.
    I can inform people of the filth in the Koran and Hadith. I can encourage and inspire people to think on their own. I can teach my children.

  6. This is very interesting...actually I was going to write about this...but I suppose there is no point.

    Muslims are too busy with veiling their women, sacrificing camels, bickering among themselves and being constantly offended by something to produce intelligent high-achievers in science and technology.

    People like Nass are happy as long as they can get a free ride on the back of western progress .. and blame the pitiful state of Muslims on western propaganda as if Muslims are unable to think for themselves...oh wait...they ARE unable to do that. I wonder why.

  7. Simon, before you go on talking about other people, why don't you think about the fact that you are too blind and narrow minded not to believe in God?

  8. Nass,
    To believe in God you have to be blind and narrow minded - you have to ignore and disbelive empirically proven facts.
    Simon,
    Under Islam the women suffer the most and with the increase in Islamic "education", Maldivian women are losing their place as equal partners.
    The Hot Chick/ Cool Woman postings are meant to be an inspiration for women to demand their rightful place. I agree with the anonymous that there is plenty we can do. And one day, hopefully soon, the women will throw off the yoke and buruga of Islamic subjugation.

    Don't try to act like you are an Atheist, Ismail Raseed. You are a bloody missionary rate. That's all you'll ever be. And a pretty UNSUCCESSFUL one too.
