Faking it, Part II

(2:79) But woe to them who fake the Scriptures and say: "This is from God," so that they might earn some profit thereby; and woe to them for what they fake, and woe to them for what they earn from it!

Say What? Quaranenglish sez it's the jewish rabbis, writing their own additions/terps of scripture. Sounds lame to me, but who knows?

Maybe it's talking about this guy. He rewrote the koran to promote Christianity, and tried to get it distributed around the Middle East. Fail! Just for shits and giggles, here's some of the verses.

(1) Alef Lam Saad Meem
(2) Say: O Muslims, You are far astray.
(3) Those who disbelieved in God and his Christ shall have in the life after the fire of hell and a severe torture.

Not exactly subtle, is it? Turns out writing isn't the only thing he's bad at. He got arrested for an Epic Fail at tax evasion. Tried to burn his tax records—in the basement of his condo. If that's not enough for a Darwin Award, he disabled the security cameras—and got filmed doing it. Woe to him, LULZ.

Here's some other guys rewriting scripture. They took out all the parts they think didn't come from Allah because they “promote violence, divisiveness, religious or gender superiority, bigotry, or discrimination”. They scrubbed 62 verses out of chapter two, 22% of it. It's a good start, but how do you know Allah isn't violent, divisive, egotistical, and bigoted? Seems as likely as anything. Maybe there really IS a god, and he's just a colossal fucking asshole. Did you ever think of that? Huh? Didja?

That's why I'm an atheist- because the only other explanation is that god is a sadistic bastard with a personal grudge against me.
