Star Worship

Chapter 67 is only 30 verses and there is absolutely nothing new in it that hasn't been beaten to death, skinned, filleted, barbecued, eaten and shit out. I did find out one new thing though;

5 And we have, (from of old), adorned the lowest heaven with Lamps, and We have made such (Lamps) (as) missiles to drive away the Evil Ones,

This is about meteors. Mohammed claimed the shooting stars drive demons away, so that means the pagan soothsayers can't send them up to heaven to find shit out like they said they did.

It makes sense; if you live in the desert shooting stars are pretty awesome, so people would naturally attach a lot of woo to them. But seriously, as any Mayan could tell you, they're really the cigarette butts of the Rain Gods.
