After landing on the moon and hearing strange sounds(to them! what they actually heard was the call to prayer!) two astronauts immediately converted to Islam!

Niel Arstong and Sunita Williams converted to the religion of logic and peace after landing on the moon.

If these intellectual giants convert, then why don't you?

deen is THE BIGGEST JOKER IN THE HISTORY OF ISLAM FORUM..........

READ THE FOLLOWING MORON:-

SUNITA WILLIAMS SAID:-

My father gave me a copy of the Bhagavad Gita and an idol of Lord Ganesha to take them along with me to space and THEY TOOK CARE OF ME IN THE SKY," Williams said through video conferencing from the Johnson Space Centre in the US.

"My father is a Hindu and mother a Catholic. I am close to both religions. I have read the Gita earlier and Lord Ganesha WAS LOOKING AFTER ME ABOVE," she said, interacting with Indian scientists, journalists and school students gathered at the four American Centres in New Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata.

THIS IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST RUMOURS OF ALL TIMES

NASA astronaut Sunita Williams said while addressing a Rotary Club
function in Ahmedabad in the presence of her father:
"When I landed up in Naval academy I had to adjust to military
discipline. The RSS culture of discipline in our family came in handy
for me at that stage since my father had been associated with the
RSS."

RSS is an HINDU ORGANISATION

the bridge between India and Sri Lanka from the space station".

RAM SETU IS AN HINDU RELIGIOUS PLACE.ITS A BRIDGE CONNECTING INDIA AND SRI LANKA........IT HAS RELIGIOUS IMPORTANCE 4 HINDUS.

Yeah, yeah ... Johann Wolfgang von Goethe--according to Muslims--was supposed to be a Muslim, too. ROFLMAO

Neil Armstrong:

>It is a lie to prove that the moon story in the KORAN is true.

KORAN says that the moon has splitted into to peices and returned back to its one peice shape and Mohamed has to do something with this.

Muslims spread that story of Neil Armstrong converted to Islam after he saw the traces on the moon of that story of spitting. They went through spreading lies in place of using the science to proove the Koran stories. and This is one of those lies.<

http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index...

> Is Neil Armstrong a Muslim?

Answer

No, this is a hoax along with claims of several other well-known celebrities conversions.<

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Is_Neil_Armstrong_a...

Islam and its adherents seem to be desperate to have famous people among them who prove the Koran right.

For a Muslim you've got the whole story wrong

It was Mo and his buddy Gab on the winged horse stopping on the moon while on their way to Heaven

or was that the Zoroastrian Arta Virag's ascent through the 7 heavens with the angel Sarosh

Since Arta Vtrag predates Muhammad

and the stories are the same

one could say that one is a direct copy of the other

Have you ever wondered why Paul is such a thorn in Allah's flesh? Here is the answer.
It is a deliberate lie that Paul "urged all the Jews among the Gentiles to forsake Moses, he told them not to circumcise their children, neither to walk after the customs (Acts 21:21), this goes against what Jesus(P) himself taught". Here is the passage in question:

"... Then they said to Paul:‘You see, brother, how many thousands of Jews have believed, and all of them are zealous for the law. THEY HAVE BEEN INFORMED THAT YOU TEACH ALL THE JEWS who live among the Gentiles TO TURN AWAY FROM MOSES, telling them not to circumcise their children or live according to our customs. What shall we do? They will certainly hear that you have come, so do what we tell you. There are four men with us who have made a vow. Take these men, join in their purification rites and pay their expenses, so that they can have their heads shaved. THEN EVERYBODY WILL KNOW THERE IS NO TRUTH IN THESE REPORTS ABOUT YOU, but that you yourself are living in obedience to the law. AS FOR THE GENTILE BELIEVERS, we have written to them our decision that they should abstain from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from the meat of strangled animals and from sexual immorality.’ The next day Paul took the men and purified himself along with them. Then he went to the temple to give notice of the date when the days of purification would end and the offering would be made for each of them." Acts 21:20b-26

The context shows that Paul WAS BEING FALSELY ACCUSED of teaching that the Jews need to turn away from the Law of Moses. As the context shows it was the Gentiles who were not required to observe the Law of Moses, something which both Paul AND THE OTHER APOSTLES were in agreement on.

The Aaccuser either has not read the passage and is therefore speaking out of irresponsible ignorance. Or he has read the passage and is therefore willfully lying.

Clearly the problem is not with Paul, but with various Muslims who desparately seek to find anything that may subtract from the authority of Paul because the Gospel he so clearly preached exposes Muhammad's message as anti-Christian, vastly inferior and not coming from God.

Among the many rumors circulating in the Islamic world, the claim that Neil Armstrong, the famous Astronaut, has become a Muslim seems to be one that will never die.

Hopefully, the following statement will help to put this claim at rest. Neil Armstrong participated in the Global Leadership Forum in Malaysia on 6 September 2005. The Star Malaysia, currently the most widely read English newspaper in Malaysia, took the occasion to interview him on his moon landing mission with Apollo 11. In the article, Armstrong recalls moon landing, published on 7 September 2005, both in print and online, one finds this statement:

Armstrong, 75, also denied he had heard the Muslim call to prayer on the moon and had converted to Islam.

REF: JAKARTA 3281 AND 2374 (NOT ..)

1. FORMER ASTRONAUT NEIL ARMSTRONG, NOW IN PRIVATE
BUSINESS, HAS BEEN THE SUBJECT OF PRESS REPORTS IN
EGYPT, MALAYSIA AND INDONESIA (AND PERHAPS ELSEWHERE)
ALLEGING HIS CONVERSION TO ISLAM DURING HIS LANDING ON
THE MOON IN 1969. AS A RESULT OF SUCH REPORTS,
ARMSTRONG HAS RECEIVED COMMUNICATIONS FROM INDIVIDUALS
AND RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS, AND A FEELER FROM AT LEAST
ONE GOVERNMENT, ABOUT HIS POSSIBLE PARTICIPATION IN
ISLAMIC ACTIVITIES.

2. WHILE STRESSING HIS STRONG DESIRE NOT TO OFFEND
ANYONE OR SHOW DISRESPECT FOR ANY RELIGION, ARMSTRONG
HAS ADVISED DEPARTMENT THAT REPORTS OF HIS CONVERSION
TO ISLAM ARE INACCURATE.

3. IF POST RECEIVE QUERIES ON THIS MATTER, ARMSTRONG
REQUESTS THAT THEY POLITELY BUT FIRMLY INFORM QUERYING
PARTY THAT HE HAS NOT CONVERTED TO ISLAM AND HAS NO
CURRENT PLANS OR DESIRE TO TRAVEL OVERSEAS TO
PARTICIPATE IN ISLAMIC RELIGOUS ACTIVITIES.

Sadly, as documented above, this rumor still goes round and round in the Islamic world, over a decade after it has been denied over and over again. Not only in mouth to mouth propaganda but it is even spread by Muslim radio stations.

Yet even when the Muslims tell their brothers that it is a false rumor, they are not convinced, the newest newsgroup tidbit is

following some statements about this issue, authorised by Mr. Armstrong, to speak on his behalf.

NEIL A. ARMSTRONG
LEBANON, OHIO 45036

July 14,1983

Mr. Phil Parshall Director
Asian Research Center
International Christian
Fellowship 29524 Bobrich
Livonia, Michigan 48152

Dear Mr. Parshall:

Mr. Armstrong has asked me to reply to your letter and
to thank you for the courtesy of your inquiry.

The reports of his conversion to Islam and of hearing
the voice of Adzan on the moon and elsewhere are all
untrue.

Several publications in Malaysia, Indonesia and other
countries have published these reports without verifi-
cation. We apologize for any inconvenience that this
incompetent journalism may have caused you.

Subsequently, Mr. Armstrong agreed to participate in a
telephone interview, reiterating his reaction to these
stories. I am enclosing copies of the United States
State Department's communications prior to and after
that interview.

Sincerely

Vivian White

Here two postings on the newsgroup soc.religion.islam in response to the question and statement by Muslims at least informed that it is a rumor,... yet Gilberto reporting on some other rumor he heard on how the original rumor might have started (rumors about rumors, getting ever more complicated):

Asalam-alaikum,

What I've heard (some time ago, in this group) is that Neil Armstrong
went to Egypt, heard the adhan, said it was spacey" in an interview.
And somehow, that got turned into a rather nice story about how he
heard some strange sound when he was up in space, eventually found out
that it was the adhan, and became Muslim because of the experience.

To the best of my knowledge, he's not Muslim (allahu alim)

I thought he did convert. As an American that converted to Islam I have
come across this story in both Islamic and Non-Islamic sources. Two of
these include the book A Muslim Primer by Ira Zepp and another book titled
