My blog posts on religion have attracted a lot of controversy. Religious people are annoyed by my claim that belief in God will go the way of horse transportation, and for much the same reason, specifically an improved standard of living.

Most posters on this thread (and in life generally) liken certain acts committed my human beings as acts that ONLY an animal would do. Like attempt to murder a child. My question is simply WHICH animal would behave THUS? I prefer animals to most of the human race.
Animals and trees. No, I'm not a tree hugger, but they give me shade in the summer, an artistic display in the fall, even in winter they tell me which way the wind is blowing at a glance.
Birds nest in them, my 4 legged friends use them as territorial markers and enjoy the shade as much as I do.
The human mammal is greedy, lustful and oft times dangerous. I prefer to get to know them individually before I make hasty judgements....still I am much more wary of them. Dogs do not bark and bare their teeth while wagging their tails....they have not learned the art of deceit....man has.

Of course you religion - Islam - takes it much further than most and makes it okay to demean, demoralize and kill women.
You must be so proud.

Three of the husbands could be sterilized, or even better than that we know who the mother is and that is far more important anyway. Either way the very fortunate child would have four fathers to help guide them to adulthood.

what are you talking about? not every man is marrying four women, secondly its not there is shortage of women. women will be out numbering men anyway.
Sigh. Since I need to break it down and explain it, let's use a model, shall we?

Men are 50 percent of the population. Women are 50 percent of the population. If you don't understand percentages it would be something like this:

4 men
4 women

One man marries 4 women. 4 men - 1 married man leaves 3 unmarried men.

Are you following me this far? Or should I take it down a few school grade levels?

Since there are no more women to marry, what will those 3 unmarried men do?
Marry a goat?

Perhaps Allah has rigged the male-female ratios in paradise.

Women will outnumber men by at least four to one.

Of course, when we factor in 72 virgins for everyone who has died for the cause, that ratio increases many times over.

Allah is equivalent of the English word God, Allah=God, the Jews and the Arab Christians use the name Allah/Elah=God Aramaic
Allah(swt) created Jinn long before mankind, they have freewill, and also follow different types of religion like us, some are faithless, they are countable aswell for sin and will be judged.
the worst kind of sin that Allah will never forgive is Shirk, associating othrrs with Him. people have always strayed from the path which is why He sent messengers to lead them to the righteous path and to teach them about oneness of Allah, the same way prophet Noah(AS) and Abraham (AS) as their people were idol worshippers.
most of the Arabs had compelled with the call of Ismail(AS) and professed the religion of his father Ibrahim(AS). they worshipped Allah and professed His oneness, they followed his religion for few generation until they forgot parts of what they had been reminded of, but they still kept the fundamental beliefs, like monotheism and other aspects of Ibrahim(AS)'s religion up until a man known as Amr bin Luhai who was known/renown for his righteousness, charitable and care for religion etc was granted unreserved.love and obedience by his tribes man, came back from from a trip to from Syria where there he saw people worship of Idols, and then he approved of his people to worship it. then idol worship was widespread, all sorts of idols were worshipped, different idols among different tribes, some kept the name Allah other made other names and so on, then prophet Mohammed(SAW) was sent, once again to warn people and to lead them to the righteous path and practice the oneness of Allah.
i wrote way more than that with great detail, now i say F&&* it, it took me at leat 40mins
tl;dr

In the beginning, it smelled like BS. But Allah did grin and tweet OMG!

That's that person's opinion, nothing else.
Allah is non of what that person has stated, Allah(swt) is the most beneficent, the most merciful, the most forgiving, the most wise, the most just[Allah is not and never is unjust] and so on, all this are Allah's names, as Allah has 99 names.
immams can get married and have families, marriage is half of ones completion of Faith, in saying that priests can't which is why they are sexually frustrated.
i could go on buy that's enough for now.
peace.
"marriage is half of ones completion of Faith"

Wait. what?

Back to my example of 4 men 4 women.

1 man marries all the women. 3 men cannot complete their faith?

So now they are frustrated sexually as well as in faith?!?

That 1 married man is gonna be dead in a hurry. In the name of Allah so the other 3 can be faithful and get married.

hey Darwinist why are you talking about Isa(AS)(Jesus) before Jesus there were many prophets, prophet Yahya(AS) and prophet Zakariya(AS).all they back to prophet Ibrahim(AS). Muslims were following prophet Ibrahim, but separation came, we believe prophet Ibrahim(AS) sacrificed Isaq(AS)(Isaac) so Muslims follow Ismail(AS).
didn't i mention everyone being born a Muslim? all mankind, even those born to non-muslims.
i already told you those idol worshippers were Muslim who went astray, and idol worship being intoduce to them. Islam did start with prophet Muhammad(SAW) but he was the seal of prophethood.
Allah orded prophet Mohammed(SAW) to follow the religion of Ibrahim(AS)
" Then We inspired you:'Follow the religion of Ibrahim, the upright in Faith'".Qur'an 16:123.
why don't you look up Amr Ibn Luhai, you probably have but, couldn't bare, just so you can hold on to the nonsense. we Muslims laugh at your silly attempts.
Islam 4EVER!!!!, Islam is peace.....Islam is Logic.
All praise be to Allah.
War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, and Ignorance is Strength.

Didn't realize there was a gender or species attached to the 72 virgins. For all we know, it could be 72 goats or donkeys or aggressive gay centaurs.

And in typical Muq spam form he answers not one fo the guys questions and simpley says basically god is good.

Sigh

Meanwhile according to sharia law as ordered by the prophet you are to beat a woman in the streets for all to see after she was jumped from behind and brutally raped.

Ans.
1. It is very easy to pronounce judgment as you have done in very simplistic terms. What we need is proof?
If you ask these different people to bring proofs from their scriptures for what they claim, you will find that "Most of what they claim" is their own man made theories.
Their scriptures do not say these things. Scriptures all along preach that there is One God to whom they should worship.
And that is the ultimate truth which islam confirms and says that it is remnant of True Religion still intact in all old scriptures.
2. Any one can claim that he is prophet of God, but there are signs which distinguish a true prophet of God from a false one. Some of the criterion of a True Prophet are:
a. He is a man of Highest Moral standards. He does not take shortcuts to achieve his goal.
b. he does not ask fro any reward or position for his services from people. He is not after their money or charity.
c. He is concerned for welfare for his followers and stands with them in thick and thin and do not leave them alone.
d. And the best test is his teachings, which ask people to worship only one God and shun the worship of false or man made gods. The best test for any prophet is in his teachings.
e. He is also given some signs or miracles to prove to people that he is from God.
But all these are 'theoretical questions' because in reality the 'door of prophethood' was closed 1400 years back when "last and Final Prophet of God" came into the world.
Now any one claiming that he or she is a prophet of God, should be sent to a mental asylum till they are cured!!

Hmmmm...

I'd always assumed that the virgins were female but you certainly have a point.

Let's ask the resident muslims in here:

What do you say guys?

Are the 72 virgins of the human species?

Well for the prophet Muhammad there beat be some virgin sheep, goats, pigs and camels for him to enjoy.

He actually died while making the play, 2 camels 1 prophet, at Mecca. Indeed he was warned by Aisha not to try to take on two camels but the prophet said Allah would protect him. Alas he died with one camel butt blasting him so hard that he couldn't pull the other camel's shlong out of his mouth before suffocating. As both camels finished the prophet fell and returned to Allah.

This is a holy ritual in Islam to this day with Muslim men like Muq lining up to reenact the prophet. This is the true way the prophet Muhammad died.

Muq either you are retarded or you are on purpose trying to make Islam look bad! I don't even need to post passages from the Quran to show how barbaric you animals are!
You're doing it for me! Look at this story you posted! Again it revolves around not only the Muslims with their bloody general prophet conquering innocent people but worse it shows that only by forced conversion to Islam is their life spared!
Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahah a!
Oh well these people did better than the Banu tribe who the prophet Muhammad brutally butchered after they surrendered.
But what do we expect from a wealthy merchant who made up a bogus religion to help expand his empire? He even raped 9 year old little girls I. The name of Allah.
MUQ wrote:
Which “Sword” the Prophet Used against his enemies: Part-39
Enemies of Islam represent our prophet as a very cruel and blood thirsty man, who would kill his “opponents, enemies and any one who disagreed with him” at “the drop of hat” and all his adversaries would be “terrified” at the mere sight of him.
The picture is far from true, let us look at some incidents from the life of prophet, as what was “this sword which killed the enmity for ever”
The Case of : HABBAR BIN ASWAD
HABBAR was a resident of Makkah and he was one of the bitterest enemies of Islam. He remained enemy of prophet and Muslims during their 13 years mission in Makkah.
When prophet migrated to Madina and wanted to bring her daughters ZAINAB and Others (FATIMA, & UMME KULTHOOM) to Madina. He sent his adopted son ZAID with camels to bring them back. ZAID took Fatima and UMM KULTHOOM, and wanted to take ZAINAB also.
ZAINAB was already married to ABU AL AAS and she was in advanced stage of pregnancy. When she had boarded the camel. Family members of ABU AL AAS, came and said that we will not allow Prophet’s daughter to be taken out of Makkah in broad day light.
During the discussion, this stone hearted HABBAR hit the camel on whom ZAINAB was sitting and she fell from the camel and had miscarriage. She suffered internal bleeding and never recovered from that injury and it lead to her death a few years later.
Prophet was extremely sad and unhappy when he learned of the accident, on the other hand this HABBAR remained unrepentant of the criminal act he had done.
When prophet conquered Makkah in year 8 H, he gave general amnesty to all people of Makkah, except 8 or 10 people. HABBAR ‘ name was in those eight or ten people for the crime he had done to prophet’ daughter.
HABBAR was afraid of his life and he hid himself in fear….but after some days, he was told that prophet does not kill those who declare Islam to him.
Accordingly he went to prophet and declared his Islam and asked for pardon for all his previous mistakes and crimes.
Prophet had him in his total control and if he would have been like any of those Earthly kings and rulers or cruel as our “Experts” would led us to believe, executing such a personal enemy would have been for him a moment’s decision.
But he was sent as a “mercy to the Universe”, so even in this condition, he took “His Sword of Mercy” and pardoned HABBAR thereby setting an example which is hard to be broken in the annals of this world!
