I learnt something interesting (or creepy) from a friend.

It turns out there are places named :
Medina in Kansas
Mecca in Ohio
Mahomet in Illinois

My mind is completely B-L-O-W-N!

Small towns first, big cities next?

Possible Sharia zones?

What needs to be researched is the straight-line distances and angles to see any odd correlations.

Many things are aligned for reasons.



Washington D.C. has some.

So do the Egyptian Pyramids I think.

A quick google would have shown you when they were founded... (hint 1800's)

For someone who starts so many threads you don't do much research.

And why are you scared of town names? Sharia zones? Seriously?

LOL, Are foreign sounding names the enemy now?

:/

You are just being religiousist if there is such a word, get over your freaked out attitude, may try reading the Koran and find out how similar it is to the bible. In my country we have a town called Bethlehem but we don't freak out and think the Christians are taking over. I forgot the Christians have just about taken over the whole planet and destroyed many beautiful cultures killing the native peoples beliefs and killing them with disease.

Cuba, Missouri is a known communist haven. And I heard tell that New York, New York is named after a place in ENGLAND! Filthy turncoats, naming a place in 'Murica after the filthy redcoats!

of course I did my research but the question remains why were Americans in the 1800's naming places "Mecca", "Medina" and "Mahomet"?? It makes no sense to me.

Couldn't find anything on wiki.

What I did find was:



Medina was founded in 1818 as part of the Connecticut Western Reserve. It was originally named Mecca, but another Ohio town had that name, so the name was changed.


So why were Americans naming their towns after places that are significant to islam?

Why wouldn't they? Do you think it wrong or shameful in some way?

Except if they knew about the conquests of the Ottoman Empire that had control of the whole Middle East and some of Europe and including skirmishes with the U.S. Navy "back then" !!!



The First Barbary War (1801–1805), also known as the Tripolitan War or the Barbary Coast War, was the first of two wars fought between the United States and the Northwest African Berber Muslim states known collectively as the Barbary States. These were the Ottoman provinces of Tripoli, Algiers, and Tunis, which were enjoying a large autonomy, as well as the independent Sultanate of Morocco.[1] The war was fought because U.S. President Thomas Jefferson refused to pay the high tributes demanded by the Barbary states and because they were seizing American merchant ships and enslaving the crews for high ransoms. It was the first military conflict authorized by Congress that the United States fought on foreign land and seas.

Because it simply doesn't add up. Its like the Chinese naming their towns "Birmingham" or "London".

Islam was completely irrelevant to American society in the 1800's so why would Americans name places after Islamic names?

Knowledge does not always equal fear.

and fine, Mahomet was named after Mason Lodge.
Medina is common name Spanish used to name lots of things.
IDK about Mecca, probably named after Mecca.

So we can probably all relax now, thread level plaid.

I have a world atlas from 1957 that lists certain region's religion as mohomadism, not Islam.
If you all want to fear names that's cool. But do look into the background.

answering-islam.org...

As per the OP there is also a Hell in Michigan. And a Weed in California. Should we also worry about those places?

no lets not relax.

"Mahomet" is not mason lodge, its Latin or French for Mohammad. What are you trying to pull here?

And for "Medina", its not Spanish...the place was going to be named "Mecca", proving those who were naming that place wanted it to sound Islamic.
