The Christian god shagged a 10-11 year old Mary...
Classical Rome 20–30 If a child survived to age 10, life expectancy was an additional 37.5 years, (total age 47.5 years).
Pre-Columbian North America 25–30
Medieval Islamic Caliphate 35+ Average lifespan of scholars was 59–84.3 years in the Middle East and 69–75 in Islamic Spain.
According to this perspective, Aisha may have been young, but she was not younger than was the norm at the time. Other Muslims doubt the very idea that Aisha was six at the time of marriage, referring to historians who have questioned the reliability of Aisha's age as given in the saying. In a society without a birth registry and where people did not celebrate birthdays, most people estimated their own age and that of others. Aisha would have been no different. What's more, Aisha had already been engaged to someone else before she married Muhammad, suggesting she had already been mature enough by the standards of her society to consider marriage for a while. It seems difficult to reconcile this with her being six.
For the man you know as Jesus Christ was radicalised at a desert training camp in the mountains of Judea by an extremist preacher called John, or “the Baptist”. It was from these notorious mountains that guerrilla resistance to the remnants of Alexander the Great’s empire had been successfully launched 200 years before. But now the occupying enemy was the Romans. And “the Baptist” preached the importance of readiness.
You honestly think there was no one above the age of 20? You claimed 15 as the life expectancy??

He raped her when she was 9, and she lost her hair from the trauma.
I guess you can let it go, but to worship such an obvious devil, and continue the practice is beyond what I can stomach.
Sweet dreams fella

Yikes, this should be interesting:
All cases of an adult having sexual relations with a nine year old child is a case of child molestation.
Muhamed was an adult who had sexual relations with nine year old child.
Therefore, Muhamed was a child molester.

Where does it say she lost her hair from the trauma of being raped? Specific quote.
What the records are clear on is that Muhammad and Aisha had a loving and egalitarian relationship, which set the standard for reciprocity, tenderness and respect enjoined by the Qur'an. Insights into their relationship, such as the fact they liked to drink out of the same cup or race one another, are indicative of a deep connection which belies any misrepresentation of their relationship. To paint Aisha as a victim is completely at odds with her persona. She was certainly no wallflower. During a controversial battle in Muslim history, she emerged riding a camel to lead the troops. She was known for her assertive temperament and mischievous sense of humour – with Muhammad sometimes bearing the brunt of the jokes. During his lifetime, he established her authority by telling Muslims to consult her in his absence; after his death, she went to be become one of the most prolific and distinguished scholars of her time. www.theguardian.com...
Yep, you got it. The only purpose for this thread is to imply that Islam is an evil, horrible, no-good religion - and all Muslims are evil, horrible, no-good people.
