Richard Dawkins - God is evil, pedophilesa not so bad

Sep 14, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Examiner.com

"The God of the Qur'an is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.

I assumed they would just be raped as per usual in islam.

Is there toilet paper in muslim heaven?

Is so, would they still need to observe their left hand/right hand rigmarole?

Never mind all the male relatives, where are they going to find 72 virgins for each martyr willing to give up their virginity (and lives) so said martyr (by definition, mass murderer) can fook the virginity off them?
Then of course why the hell would some guy want to be surrounded by 72 inexperienced and gagging virgins?
Then of course, just like bombs (and toilet paper) virginity can only be used once, after said martyr has had his way 72 times then he’s stuck with used goods just like every other guy
Definately not thought through

After a virgin has been raped once she is no longer a virgin, this is the self defeating fallacy of their stupidness

I know of Muslims who use toilet paper, well they don’t carry the usual bottle of water around with them so I can only assume they use toilet paper. Perhaps hazem can enlighten me.

This cleaning of their sh|t after they have taken a dump is the reason why the Muslim punishment of cutting off the hand is so horrendous to them, nothing to do with the barbaric and inhumane cruelty of disfiguring a person for life. Just imagine the revulsion of having to eat with the same hand you wipe your a$$ with. Hell you’d have to get a virgin to feed you (or wipe you’re a$$)

I have often thought about this, what happens if a Muslim is left handed? Does he/she wipe with the right and eat with the left,(see quoranic bigotry against left handed people) and does a left handed thief have is left hand chopped off? Perhaps hazem can enlighten me.

Of course I know muslims that are clean too - most people are normal and eat cheese just like the rest of us.
They tend not to support suicide bombers though.

I do agree with suicide bombing as long as they are done against the military, Harming civilians and innocents is prohibited in Islam by any way not just suicidal bombings

5:32 " whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land - it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one - it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. "
so I do agree with suicidal bombings as a war tactic against the army and those who fight us, whats so hard to understand about that ?!!

Can you please tell me when the western countries gave women the Right to own a property ?!! when were women allowed to get education and go to universities ?!!

I can assure you that these rights weren't given to women until the 18th century, Islam gave women a A great place 1400 years ago, The first wife of the Prophet Muhammad, Khadeeja, was a successful businesswoman, and throughout history many Muslim women were involved in the founding of educational institutions. Most notable of these is Fatima al-Fihri, who established the University of Al-Karaouine in 859 CE, according to UNESCO this university is the oldest university in the world.

So how would a religion which gave women rights 1400 years ago when nobody even thought of women or any of their rights be considered to encourage bad treatment to women ?!!
you are brainwashed and you are denying all facts, you are just not willing to change any of your thoughts about Islam, I blame your muslim friends who never tried to explain Islam to you correctly.

I am sure such crimes were committed, however many, many more such crimes on a far grander scale were committed by Saddam and his political buddies as I have already indicated.

However if you get off on blaming America for your indoctrinated hatred then go for it.
Oh sorry, you think I am a mind reader now? You said “the next day” how was I to interpret that as really meaning almost half a century later, I did not realise that the qouran also taught time machines.


Do you Actually believe that the U.N do things to the world for free ?!!
You surely know that wars cost and cost a lot , so who paid ?!!
Do you really believe that america Paid over 1.7 Trillion dollars to fund the war against iraq only to remove Saddam's regime and spread democracy?!! you are missing the big picture.

So Isreal became a state at 1948 ..!! in order to have a formal state you should at least have a group of people with an army, so between 1916 and 1948 Armed Jews began to immigrate to Palestine under the protection of British Army,so they took advantage of us to get rid of the Ottomon empire to take our land ..!!! isn't that funny ?!!
I meant that Quran clearly states that muslims shouldn't become allies to non Muslims against Muslims, and that is exactly what the leader of Arabs did.

I know about the Balfour declaration letters, however a correspondence between 2 people does not change the fact that Israel was created in 1948, NOT 1916. And neither corespondents were head of state or in a position to do more than advise on government decisions.
isnt it weird that a correspondence between those 2 people was exactly applied, there is an obvious conspiracy but you just cant see it.

Yes I am fully aware of the Asia Minor Agreement thank you for your condescension. The fact remains that those Arab states on the German side of the fence LOST, they pitched in with the wrong side and the gamble failed. That’s the harsh realities of war. Feel free to hold a grudge if you think it does your festering mind any good but do not come at me with selective and mostly irrelevant data as a defence.
hahaha the problem is that Arabs were not on the side of Germany ...!!! we were fighting against Ottomon empire from the inside, Arabs were a big reason behind the collapse of Ottomon empire, but that didnt stop the winning side to back stab us and take our lands, yet gave Palestine to Jews as a national home.

Oh wow he has changes his story now. Thanks you for eventually agreeing that Isreal was created in 1948, not after WW1 as you have repeatedly implied
However we are now in the 21 century, almost 100 years after the decline of your glorious Ottoman empire and like a good old family feud you still want to kill people over the result. You .
As I told you the state of isreal didnt just appear in 1948, there should have been Preparations, these preparations took them over 25 years and during that time they were killing Arabs and Muslims in Palestine on a big scale.

No big deal, I was simply showing you the futility of your guesswork
Cherry picking is cherry picking. I take verses as written, I do not need to modify them by interpretation of other verses. You take the verses and think, hmm, that’s not good, how can I adapt another verse from another book to temper the meaning. You are rather like a christian opponent I often cross swords with on topix, he too believes that selected verses modify the meaning of other biblical verses.
Islam is not a game, there is a specific method and criteria to explain verses, you cannot just simply take a verse out of its original context, people study the Quran and Hadith for years and still may not be able to extract laws and rules, its like physics you cannot jump to a law before knowing the basics.
this specific criteria was applied since the day of Mohammed, sometimes a verse complete a Hadith, sometimes a specific Hadith completes the meaning of a verse, As I Told you we couldnt know how to pray without Hadith and teachings of Mohammed.

<quoted text>
He does not care that maybe 2000 years separate the statements, he treats them as all of the same time. That religious time machines really has a lot to answer for. You have made me realise that Islam uses the same blinkered ideology. Even if I cannot agree with you on any of your interpretation of the Muslim faith I have to thank you for that
I know praying is a huge part if Islamic faith, are you therefore saying that praying is meaningless to a christian or a Buddhist or a Hindu?
The Quran is the last living miracle in the world, because Mohammed is the last prophet (as we believe), so we do believe that Islam works perfectly at different times and locations, simply because its flexible, as I told you if you spent years studying Quran and Hadith you may be able to make an opinion regarding a specific issue, like the praying issue some scientists say quitting prayers take you of Islam , other scientists say quitting may not take you of Islam but only if you quit because of laziness, all scientists agreed that quitting the 5 prayers because of not believing in those prayers would take you out of Islam and will become an infidel.

Muslim scientists and big scholars agree on the big and the most important issues, then we find some Differences among other issues, hmm like praying during a journey...etc its a very wide scope, and every question that may cross your mind have an answer, Just name it ..!!

is praying meaningless to a christian or a Buddhist or a Hindu?
Chrsitians gave god a partner which is an unforgivable sin, they consider me as an infidel and I do the same, I am not the judge and I cannot say who is going to hell and who is going to heaven but My religion clearly states that there some actions will take you to hell, they think that Islamic prayers are meaningless, I say if they prayed for god the creator not Jesus the man their prayers may not be meaningless.

so there would be different types of people at the day of judgment according to a Muslim scholar ; 1-those who don't know about Islam and never heard about it and 2-those who know about Islam yet received it distorted, these 2 types of people cannot go to hell because god is fair and will never torture them because they never knew the true path , and god may send them a prophet during the judgment day or would give them some kind of a test.
there is a verse about this issue

67:8 It almost bursts with rage. Every time a company is thrown into it, its keepers ask them, "Did there not come to you a warner?"

67:9 They will say," Yes, a warner had come to us, but we denied and said,' Allah has not sent down anything. You are not but in great error.' "
67:10 And they will say, "If only we had been listening or reasoning, we would not be among the companions of the Blaze."

A warner is not only a prophet, I may be considered as a Warner

Why would the athiests on here comment only about Dawkins remarks about God and not his pedophilia remarks?
I also think Dawkins missed the parts about Christ, the forgiver of sins and a new covenant with humanity from God, but rather focused on Old Testament law. If God wanted people to still be stoned to death etc, then Christ would have never shown up.
Atheists stress Old Testament law because it is embarrassing to modern Christians. We (generally speaking, not referring to myself personally) are embarrassed by the ultra strict God of the Old Testament. Whereas on the other hand we glory in the enlightenment of the God of the New Testament. They are two expressions of the same God. The Old Testament stresses the infinitely holiness of God, and the New Testament His infinite love. Both attributes belong to the same Being. Gods hatred for evil goes past murder, it judges all evil - even the impure motives of our good deeds. If our good deeds are impure, how can we approach Him.
We can't outside of Jesus Christ. He had to take on our sins and propitiate infinite holiness through His death. He rose from the dead and offers a very real salvation from sin to everyone who trusts Him alone for salvation from sin.

Nope I won’t tell you a lie, you may personally consider that they are no longer Muslims but that’s just your personal hatred. They have chosen to live in the western world and they have adapted their core beliefs to the western way of life, that in no way diminishes their cultural point of view. It just means they are living in and embrace a different society.
I dont personally consider your muslim friend to be no longer muslims, its what big scholars says and what the religion of Islam states, they could embrace a different society and keep their beliefs at the same time, but maybe they are too weak or may have a very high Sense of inferiority, the one who sells his principles and beliefs to please others for me is no more than a Weak and a coward, if you saw any of them just ask them why did they quit prayers, If the answer was because of laziness ..blaah blaah they may still be considered as Muslims according to one scholar opinion, if the answer was we don't believe in praying you can instantly tell them that they are infidels and no longer Muslims.

this is religion, its a way of life and has specific rules , its not a game you cannot just come and say your opinion about those friend of yours, quitting prayers is prohibited whether they liked it or not.

I told you numerous times, Islam prohibits killings civilians and innocents, killing an innocent soul is like killing the whole man kind.

5:32 "...whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land - it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one - it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. "

so please remind how is it possible to kill the entire man kind be rewarded for doing so ?!!

How rude, you both are really brainwashed horribly that now you question muslims' personal hygiene, it is obvious that Muslims throughout the world have extremely high standards of personal hygiene, Muslims are required to take care of their personal hygiene by assuring that they are well groomed, and that their bodies, clothing, and surroundings are clean, Islam highly insists on it

Mohammed said “cleanliness is half of faith.”

“Truly, God loves those who turn unto Him in repentance and loves those who purify themselves.”(Quran 2:222)

- it also seems that you forgot about washing ritual before prayers, sometimes a muslim have to wash 5 times everyday before every prayer

“O you who believe! When you intend to offer the prayer, wash your faces and your hands (forearms) up to the elbows, wipe your heads, and (wash) your feet up to the ankles. If you are in a state of Janaba (i.e. had a sexual discharge) purify yourself.”(Quran 5:6)

Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) said “Five things are part of the fitrah: shaving the pubic hair, circumcision, trimming the moustache, plucking the armpit hairs, and cutting the nails”

you could simply google hygiene in Islam instead of jumping to conclusions and questioning our personal hygiene, you would find numerous verses, Hadiths and websites talking about this specific issue.

http://www.islamreligion.com/articles/2149/

http://islamic-world.net/sister/h17.htm

http://www.islamawareness.net/Cleanliness/per...

you cannot imagine how important is personal hygiene in Islam, in response to your question Christien, using a toilet paper (Wiping)
without water is not enough, there should be water involved in order to leave the area very clean, I always wonder how can people put up their pants without washing after Shitting ..!!
we should even wash the private area after urinating not only shitting, back days Mohammed taught muslims use Paper trees and stones to use after washing private areas, nowadays we can wash and use toilet papers for Drying.
Mohammed taught us how to clean ourselves 1400 years ago, I have to to add that islam prohibits urinating while standing unless we had to like when there is no toilets in open air ; in this case you have to urinate With the direction of the wind, because urinating while standing may make some of that Urine to hit the toilet and you may get urine on yourself thus you cannot perform a prayer unless you clean your clothes out of urine.

now its really okay in the western countries to urinate while standing, some guys even may have a conversation while urinating not taking in consideration that they may have lots of urine on their underpants, urinating while standing may also be very disrespectful for others, for instance One of the common habits we find in people who regularly use urinals is that they also stand up while using a lavatory, This can result in a very dirty seat covered with urine and germs, Very few people care to clean the seat, let alone the toilet area after leaving, so, the next person entering has to deal with that disgusting mess.
not to mention the Infections and side effects which may occur because of leaving private areas unwashed after urinating and or shitting ...!!!

"People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones" you are making fun of our personal hygiene while you are the ones who need
extensive hygiene lessons.

I really wonder why do you defend those people ??! you really should read about their history, of course they didn’t welcome that religion, they had over 365 idols to worship, they were swimming in ignorance.
How could they like a religion that makes slaves equal to their owner in front of Allah?!!, I can assure that back then the strong could kill the weak.

Some of these people were very Stubborn and saw the truth but still didn't convert and kept saying that this religion is only for the weak people and we are way better than them, they were arrogant .

2:13 "Again, whenever they are told (as a duty of calling to faith), "Believe as the people believe," (in a way to demonstrate their self-pride and disparagement of the people) they say: "Shall we believe as the fools believe!?" Beware, they themselves are the fools, but they do not know (seeing that they have no true knowledge to distinguish between truth and falsehood, sincere faith and hypocrisy, right and wrong.)"

Islam dealt with the slavery issue, it was a very big issue 1400 years ago, slavery was a normal thing that time, so Islam solved that problem Gradually, A lot of companions of Mohammed after conversion to Islam started to buy slaves in order to set them free Like Bilal Bin Rabah who was horribly tortured by his owner because he converted, so Abu Bakr Mohammed’s companion bought him and set him free, he was the first slave in Mekkah who had his freedom, so Islam started to put specific rules for slavery which eventually will stop slavery within a very short period of time, you have to remember that Islam ended slavery centuries before western countries, it is obvious in Mohammed teachings that each problem should be solved gradually, even alcoholism was solved slowly , until the verse of prohibition of alcohol was revealed.
you will find a lot of mistakes that can be done by Muslims in the daily life like not being able to fast in Ramadan, the penalty would be to set free a slave if you had one, or like a false swearing to god the penalty also would be to free your slave along with numerous mistakes , not to mention that there is an oath might be between the slave and his owner, like working for a specific period of Time for a specific amount of money, Islam doesn’t want to set slaves for free and leave them in poverty, there were accurate solutions and steps to set slaves free.
we have to Admit that Islam succeeded to end slavery centuries before western countries.

The Quran and Mohammed's hadith encourage muslims for freeing slaves and promise them with big rewards in the after life

Maybe the fact that they were there and knew the stories and poetry of Arabia explains why they weren't impressed.
The Quran impressed them, but they thought that Mohammed was a magician and practiced magic by Quran, some of them as I told you used to put their fingers in their ears to avoid Quranic Magic..!!! Not to mention that they failed to fulfill god’s challenge which is to get a book like the quran , they even failed to produce a chapter like of the Quran, the quran states that this challenge is still valid and the good news that anyone claims that he can produce one chapter like of the Quran can bring up his friends to witness, its 2013 and this challenge is still valid but of course in Arabic Language, because the translations of Quran only give general meanings , and the actual beauty and miraculous ways of Quran cannot be understood properly except in Arabic.

2:23 “And if you are in doubt about what We have sent down upon Our Servant [Muhammad], then produce a surah the like thereof and call upon your witnesses other than Allah , if you should be truthful.”

17:88 “Say, "If mankind and the jinn gathered in order to produce the like of this Qur'an, they could not produce the like of it, even if they were to each other assistants."

Sorry but this is bad logic.
If Abu Lahab had converted so as to destroy Islam then he would only be pretending to be a muslim and that wouldn't count would it?
If he had truly converted then he would just be forgiven and the surah abrogated.
Note the surah begins “May the hands of Abu Lahab be ruined”. That's not saying he will be ruined but rather that the author hopes he will be ruined.
And that is the miraculous thing of it, if he pretended it would count because obviously you cannot know who is pretending and who is not , Abu Lahab didn’t even pretend to be a muslim, he was very stubborn and was afraid of his reputation, he could destroy the whole religion and he knew it but decided not to be on the same level of the weak people in Mekkah, he had the chance for years , but this Surah shows us that it is from god who knows the future .
in Arabic its obvious that Abu Lahab will go to hell, Yusuf ali translation may be clearer to you
Abu Lahab was his nickname , which means the father of flame , he was a very rich man and very arrogant who would do anything to keep the religion of worshiping statues and Idols
111
“Perish the hands of the Father of Flame! Perish he!
No profit to him from all his wealth, and all his gains!
Burnt soon will he be in a Fire of Blazing Flame!
His wife shall carry the (crackling) wood - As fuel!-

The real drone attacks I hate are islamists droning on about how peaceful their violent religion is.

Meanwhile, like two bald men fighting over a comb, the sunni and shiites continue to murder each other.

I didn't tell you to change, you have the right to believe or disbelieve, but seriously how would it harm you to know what Islam is really about ?!! consider it as a free lecture.
even if you were a muslim you can disbelieve because apparently nobody is capable of reading your mind and nobody would put a sword on your nick and drag you to the mosque ...!!!

muslims kill many civilians - so islam doesn't work.

I told you numerous times, Islam prohibits killings civilians and innocents, killing an innocent soul is like killing the whole man kind.
5:32 "...whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land - it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one - it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. "
so please remind how is it possible to kill the entire man kind be rewarded for doing so ?!!
