---You remember Adam and the Angels?
---Yeah, man, they had some big hits back in the 80's,
---No, it's not a band, man, it's a story. Like in the koran, man.
---Oh, yeah, I'm hip man. I know that story. Like,
The Man was gonna draft Adam and ship him
off to Earth, and the angels held a big protest,
said he was fascist, called Adam a baby-killer,
2:30  Behold, thy Lord said to the angels: "I will create a vicegerent on earth." They said:
"Wilt Thou place therein one who will make mischief therein and shed blood?- whilst we do celebrate Thy praises and glorify Thy holy (name)?" He said: "I know what ye know not."
---Yeah, that's the one, man. Well I think I know where old Mo got that story, man.
---No shit man? Well clue me in. And pass the bong
---Sure, man, here. Well see, those Jewish dudes, they have this book called the Bearshit Rabbi
---No man, you mean the Bereshit Rabba. It's Hebrew,
man, and it's commentaries on the bible. It's really deep,
it'll like open your mind, expand your consciousness ...
---Right on, man. I can dig it. Anyway, there's this story in there, on page 46,
Then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness, and let there be a creature not only the product of earth, but also gifted with heavenly, spiritual elements, which will bestow on him reason, intellect, and understanding." Truth then appeared, falling before God's throne, and in all humility exclaimed: "Deign, O God, to refrain from calling into being a creature who is beset with the vice of lying, who will tread truth under his feet." Peace came forth to support this petition. "Wherefore, O lord, shall this creature appear on earth, a creature so full of strife and contention, to disturb the peace and harmony of thy creation? He will carry the flame of quarrel and ill-will in his trail; he will bring about war and destruction in his eagerness for gain and conquest."
---Wow, that's far out, man. Mohammed was ripping 
off the Bereshit. His guru must have been a
Jewish dude. That's some heavy shit man.
---Right on, brother. Gimme another toke, eh?  Anyhow, that's where that weird story in the koran comes from.
Far out, man...
