12 "It is they who have lost their own souls, that will not believe."Whoops, that last one isn't Mohammed. How'd that get in there? That's Goebbels talking about the Nazis. Doesn't have anything to do with the Koran. Nosirree, nothing at all. My subconscious just snuck that in behind my back. Got no idea why. Just ignore it.I got toothpicks, propped open my eyelids, and plodded though 135 verses, when I found something interesting. “Hey,” I said to me, “what's going on here?” Mohammed is talking sense,
39 "Those who reject our signs are deaf and dumb,-"
125 "thus doth Allah (heap) the penalty on those who refuse to believe."
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it."
136Out of what Allah hath produced in abundance in tilth and in cattle, they assigned Him a share: they say, according to their fancies: "This is for Allah, and this" — for our "partners"! but the share of their "partners" reacheth not Allah, whilst the share of Allah reacheth their "partners"! evil (and unjust) is their assignment!and I'm saying, yeah, Yes! Exactly. They give some to god and some to the priests, and the priests take both shares. It's a big scam. Has Mo come to his senses? He's talking sense here, goes on with more examples how the pagans don't eat certain foods, says how silly it all is, talking like a sensible person, and then he goes and says:
145Say: "I find not in the message received by me by inspiration any (meat) forbidden to be eaten by one who wishes to eat it, unless it be dead meat, or blood poured forth, or the flesh of swine,-Say what? After ragging on about how silly it is to think god forbids food, he says god forbids food. Ho, ho ho, those guys are so silly, thinking god told them what to eat. Yuk, God really told them to eat something else, har har.
God's message is dumb for everybody else, but for him it's the straight dope. Man, religious people really don't think like the rest of us do. Ask Billy Graham: “they strongly believe they alone are right in their beliefs and everyone else is wrong. Thus they reject the central truths of the Bible that ...” OOOOkay! Same input, different output. I think there must be some God Worm that gets in people's brain and eats away the logic part. I found a picture of it:After making fun of people for thinking god told them what to eat, the Gods (hey, it's plural) switch to first person and remind people that they told them what to eat;
146For those who followed the Jewish Law, We forbade every (animal) with undivided hoof, and We forbade them that fat of the ox and the sheep,... so the people are dumb for thinking god told them, because he did tell them, but told Mo something else ... I'm struggling, help me out here ...
154Moreover, We gave Moses the Book, completing (Our favour) to those who would do right, and explaining all things in detail,-If it explains everything in detail, we don't need no stinkin' Koran. Mo's kinda shoots himself in the foot here. Here and here are discussions of if or not the bible still holds water ... people have written whole books about this, that you could read, or, you could just put your head in a paint shaker. The gods “help” us out
155 And this is a Book which We have revealed as a blessing: so follow it and be righteous,They say some more stuff, but Google says “this book” means the Torah no it means the Quran no it depends on whether you're muslim or christain. If you're SANE, “it” means whatever you were talking about in the last sentence, which was the bible. Unless Mohammed was pointing at a Quran. That wasn't written yet. Gahhhhhhhnhuykj jnkggkuynjhhkhhknnh....
...This is where my brains ran out my ears and left me banging my head against the keyboard and babbling. Lat came in and gave me snorgles and chocolate, and read to me from a copy of Logical Thinking till I was back on my feet. One last verse from chapter 6
