22:18 Seest thou not that to Allah bow down in worship all things that are in the heavens and on earth: the sun, the moon, the stars; the hills, the trees, the animals?
Mmmm, ... No. I don't see that.

You just can't win with this book. First time you try to read it, you give up because it's all random, arranged by how long the chapters are. Then—a miracle!—in a slice of toast, Logic appeared, and told people to organize it in the order Mohammed made this shit up the verses were revealed to Mohammed. I'd never have made it this far if they hadn't. Instead of looking like somebody ate alphabet soup and randomly shit these verses, now it has a story line. It follows some guy from his first psychotic episode and chronicles his gradual descent into madness and megalomania.

That's probably why the official version's not organized that way, so people are less likely to notice. They still didn't get it right though, because this first half of ch 22 belongs way back in the Mecca times, when Mohammed was still yammering about the wonders of nature and all that pagany stuff, like up above. I kind of like that part.

He still hasn't read the bible, still confused about how god made people:
22:5 O mankind! ... We created you out of dust, then out of sperm, then out of a leech-like clot, then out of a morsel of flesh, partly formed and partly unformed, in order that We may manifest (our power) to you;
Typical fundamentalist. Wants us to read his silly books but doesn't even know what's in them. Dust, moron, God created man out of dust. You two need to get your story straight.
