IS ISLAM MONOTHEISTIC?

LOL.

1) The fact that Muhammad chose the chief pagan god of the Kaaba who is Allah shows his preference for Allah over the other 360 gods.

2) Here are some verses from Quran that refer to other deities or to typal beings other than Allah:

a) Will ye call upon Baal and forsake the Best of Creators (Allah)?

[Quran: 37:125, Yusuf Ali]

b) Or is it that thou askest them for some recompense? But the recompense of thy Lord is best: He is the Best of those who give sustenance.

[Quran: 23:72, Yusuf Ali]

CONCLUSIONS:

1) In these two verses posted above, Allah tells a different story.“Best of creators” means one creator who is better than some other creators. Therefore, Muslims believe there are multiple creators; Allah being the best of them all—whom Muslims must worship.

2) Similarly,“Best of those who give sustenance” means Allah is best giver of sustenance than the other Gods. In other words, Allah can give better nourishment or better livelihoods than the other Gods out there. Therefore, Muslims should worship to Allah alone, who can offer them the best of goodies. Allah is like a politician, who urges voters to give their allegiance to him offering them the best of goodies, if chosen.

3) In the above two Quranic verses, Allah clearly admits the existence of multiple Gods; He being best of Them. Therefore, the Muslim claim that there is only one God is false and ridiculous in the least. Allah himself refutes this uneducated claim of Muslims.

ISLAM IS MONOLATRISTIC !

The ethno-religious assertion is a FRAUD as it is applied by a particular group to the biological SEEDS which makeup the group. Nearly 50 % of this group is secular meaning atheists, agnostics or non-religious.
Now, compare that to Jamaica where far more Jamaicans are RELIGIOUS and in particular Christians. My guess is that 90% or more of Jamaicans are Christians and then there is the ethnicity part. So Jamaicans here and in the diaspora are an ethno-religious group and far more so than the group in question.
The religion of one's ancestor is not necessarily yours. My Grandfather was Jewish and I am certain that he grew up with Judaism as his faith,given the time that he grew up, or that his parents meaning my great grandparents were secular. Take this line of argument to ancient days and get the picture. Now what does the religion of these my progenitors have to do with me?
Does it make me a member of Judaism?
How does the religion of the progenitors of Jews who are secular make them Judahites? It does not. It is an IDIOTIC LIE that is promoted.
Jew is both a religion and a people. You could be a non observing or atheist Jew like Chomsky.

I can't remember the last time Jews put someone to death for blasphemy. Muslims, on the other hand...
Funny thing is I didnt know Mohammed was God. So I am not sure how cartooning Mohammmed could be blasphemy.

Hypocrite!
In the third book of the Torah , Leviticus 24:16 states that he that
blasphemes the name of the LORD "shall surely be put to death".
See also List of capital crimes in the Torah. The Seven laws of Noah,
which Judaism sees as applicable to all people, prohibit blasphemy.
Excuse me, you must confuse me for a literalist. That would be Hughbe. I follow the Jewish religion.

I don't judge posters.

I am least bothered if you or if anyone else reads my posts or not.

Good if you read my posts, good if you don't read my posts.

I am ok with both aspects given my high degree of equanimity in these matters.

On my part, I scrutinize every post, including yours, as a matter of intellectual interest since I have a universal outlook.

Grow up, you're so parochial, fanatical, biased, immature, unclassy, impoverished, unfair and sub-intellectual.

Bye.

The general is the culmination of the quantitative and the qualitative aspects and exists as principle.
