    Default Why are "genies" associated with bringing wishes?

    From my understanding, genies originated in the religion of Islam, in which they are supposed to be demons (fallen angels / evil spirits). So why would something so evil be something that was associated with something nice like granting you a wish?

    Have you never seen Wishmaster? Sheesh! The wishes turn evil, dude.

    Also, they're aren't demons or fallen angels. They are simply spirits, that can be good, evil, or neutral. I do believe most of the wish stuff came from One Thousand and One Nights, but I could be wrong. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genie

    Might want to research before making yourself look stupid. But I guess that there's nothing you can do to not make yourself look stupid. Jinn can be good, neutral or evil. They aren't just evil.

    Those are fairies. Though in Cosmos's case he should probably have his hands bound and wand taken away.

    Yeah, don't know why I do that. But there's a difference between accidentally using the wrong word and being ignorant of facts.

    You shouldn't call people stupid. Especially when you make your own stupid mistakes ... as most of us do. Do something constructive, educate them or point them in the direction to find the information. Jeez.

    Except he's been doing this for two years now. So stupid applies. I don't post spam like he does. I don't go crying look at me guys I'm cool. I'm not intellectually stunted like he is. This is a guy who's been banned for this behavior before across multiple accounts. Don't go talking to me about stupid till you're actually been apart of this forum for a decent amount of time.

    No, translation, I've been around him longer. I know how annoying he is. Besides I'm not the only one that thinks that. Spam is spam. And he does a lot of spam. Most of his posts should be in the blog section but are not. I wish they'd just ban him and get it over with. This is at least his fourth account here. He's proven himself to be a lying hypocrite.

    I've been studying math longer than you, so 3 + 3 = 10. Right?

    I don't care how long you've been here or your particular opinion of this post (which doesn't seem like spam to me). You shouldn't call people stupid.

    I call like I see it. If someone behaves like a idiot I'll call them one. And besides your retort can be thrown back at you. Please try again.

    Except I have more then two instances. I have hundreds. That's what you need to get. Two years of him trumps two instances.

    But a thread that's NOT spam should not be treated as if it was spam, just because I've made other threads and comments I've made that were spam. However, this is a legitimate thread, and should be treated as such.

    How is this a legitimate thread? How is your Lazy Town a legitimate thread?

It may not be the best said question or the most articulate, being that he considered them to be only evil in the beginning, but it's a fair question nonetheless. As for the Lazy Town thread, don't know and not even gonna try to touch that with a ten one hundred and ten foot pole. But this one isn't so bad, maybe someone with a larger understanding of the genies or jinn and Islamic culture can send more light on the subject. Or we can continue to be off-topic like a bunch of ninnies.

    And I'd be willing to give him leeway once he learns forum etiquette and stops spamming twenty topics a day.
