Let's continue with the lies and deception taught by Mohammad
A paragraph later, we're told: "Allah wrote this down in a document and had the angels witness it.... Whereupon Allah had the document brought down and had the angels produced as witnesses against him." If Allah wrote, and if the Qur'an was important, why did it come down in the form of clanging bells and oral recitals rather than scrolls?(The answer is: it's easier to get scriptural approval for power, lust, and booty if you're making it up as you go along.)
Tabari I:332 "Adam died. Seth and his brothers were in the regions east of Paradise at a village that was the first on earth." Wait a minute; Allah said Paradise was up, and therefore not on earth. And how can this be the first village if Allah created cities on the third day of creation? We were even told that his footsteps became villages en route to Mecca. Somebody ought to have edited this stuff before trying to pass it off as scripture.
The prophet's next line further confirmed that he wasn't inspired by God. "The sun and the moon were in eclipse for seven days and nights." That's impossible. The sun is eclipsed by the moon and the moon by the earth's shadow. They cannot both be "in eclipse." Even a pretend god ought to be smarter than this.
To establish a Muslim ritual, Muhammad said, "When Adam died, the angels washed him separately several times with water and prepared a burial site. They said,'This shall be the custom among all Adam's children.'" In Islam, non-martyrs are buried this way. Martyrs, like today’s suicide bombers, are not washed. One too many innocents: The blood of innocents smeared on their bodies is a badge of honor, Allah’s signal to escort them directly into paradise - wherever it might be.
"The Messenger said,'Your father Adam was as tall as a very tall palm, that is sixty cubits. He had much hair and his privy parts were concealed. When he committed the sin of eating from the forbidden [wheat] tree, his secret part became apparent to him. He fled about in Paradise, but a tree encountered him and seized him by his forelock... When he was about to die, Allah sent down embalming chemicals and a shroud for him." Didn't Allah say Adam was bald because he bumped into heaven falling down?(Tabari I:298) And why would Allah need embalming fluid in heaven?
Tabari I:333 "Ibn Ishaq said,'He was buried in Mecca in the cave of Abu Qubays, called the Treasure Cave.'" But there is no reason to look for his big bones there because, "Noah took them out, placed them in a coffin, and carried them along in the ark.... When Noah left the ark, he buried Adam in Jerusalem. And as mentioned before, Eve spun, wove, kneaded, baked, and did all kinds of women's work."
One of the reasons I have been reporting these early Islamic Traditions is because they provide an insight into Muhammad’s character. They establish a pattern of behavior - a willingness to deceive. Specifically, they demonstrate that Muhammad was willing to pass himself off as an authority on godly and spiritual things when he clearly was not. That means his claim to being the Messenger of God is suspect. Therefore, so is the Qur'an and Islam.
The second reason that I have shared so many of these with you is to demonstrate that Muhammad was incapable of innovative thought. Lacking creativity and godly inspiration, he corrupted the Bible and plagiarized the Talmud. In that regard, he and the fallen angel Lucifer had a great deal in common. Simply stated, Muhammad was not capable of inventing a religion. You will soon learn that the prophet actually stole the entirety of the religious scam that became Islam.
