Right there. Now if you re-read my response i said you ESSENTIALLY called them morons, i didn't say you actually said it word for word. You say that
all informed folks konw that Islam is a sham. Pretty blatent if you ask me. Maybe you meant something else though.
Is Islam a "sham"? Dictionary com defines a sham as: N. Something false or empty that is purported to be genuine; a spurious imitation. V.Int. To
assume a false appearance or character; dissemble. I would say Islam leans to the sham side for the following reasons.
Christians can't talk about Christianity without mentioning God or Jesus and Muslims cannot talk about Islam without mentioning Mohammed, the founder
of a major religion and a self-claimed prophet of God.
My wife comes from Vietnam where they worship Budda. Buddhism has 307 million followers. It was founded by Siddhartha Gautama, known as the Buddha
(Enlightened One), in southern Nepal in the sixth and fifth centuries B.C.Budda never claimed to be a prophet and made no teachings about any God. He
meditated and taught about the spiritual nature of man. Buddha was not a ruler, conqueror, enslaver, polygamist or pedophile.
Moses was in a way the leader and ruler of the Jews as they journeyed home to Israel from captivity in Egypt. He was not a conqueror, enslaver,
polygamist or pedophile.
Christianity was founded by Jesus. Jesus was not a conqueror, enslaver, polygamist or pedophile.
Islam is the Middle Eastern monotheistic fideist religion professing surrender to the will of Allah (God), whose revelations in the Old and New
Testaments were superseded by the Koran revealed to Muhammad (c570 - 632-06) for his chosen people, the children of Abraham's son Ishmael (c1800
In the above paragraph, "fideist religion" means: A philosophical view extolling theological faith by making it the ultimate criterion of truth and
minimizing the power of reason to know religious truths. Strict fideists assign no place to reason in discovering or understanding fundamental tenets
of religion. For them blind faith is supreme as the way to certitude and salvation.
Mohammed, the founder of Islam, was a polygamist and a pedophile. He had twenty one wives and two slave girl concubines.
Mohammed's Muslim biographers record that in his first year at Medinah after fleeing from Mecca, Mohammed consummated his marriage to Ayisha, a young
girl only 9 years old! In this day and age people in any civilized country would consider Mohammed a pedophile and a rapist for marrying and having
sex with a little girl less than ten years old, yet this is still practiced in some Muslim countries!
Most of the people of Mecca ignored Mohammed when he first started preaching. They became annoyed when he started insulting and defaming their
religions and they tried persuading him to stop this offensive behavior. Mohammed grew alarmed at the growing hostility against him and he fled from
of Mecca one night with a gang of his followers.
Ever since that incident, Mohammed was determined to take revenge on the Meccans. He escaped to Medinah, which had a sizeable Jewish population, and
started plotting his revenge. This was the beginning of Mohammed's trail of violence, hatred and bloodshed which his Muslim biographers have
documented in detail:
- Surprise raids and attacks on trade caravans and tribal settlements.
- The use of plunder to obtain and recruit an ever growing army.
- Assassinations of opponents.
- Expulsion and massacre of the Jews of Medinah.
- Attack and enslavement of the Jews of Khayber.
- Rape of women and children.
- Sale of these victims into slavery after rape.
- Trickery, treachery and bribery employed to their fullest extent to grow the numbers of his religion, Islam.
Mohammed is the only founder of a major religion who was a ruler, conqueror, enslaver, bandit, polygamist and pedophile. I consider Islam a sham
