All those passages from the Koran are alright, but that book was written by men too. No God, NO GOD wrote a book. And don't give me that "inspired"
BS, this is brainwashing at it's absolute best. Just because the majority of people might BELIEVE something to be true, doesn't make it true. All it
means, is that you and most of your neighbors are suffering from a mass delusion--or, put more bluntly: YOU ARE BRAINWASHED. So, the question is,
really, how did you get this way? How did you come to believe things like those statements in the first questions were true? "Well, I heard it on....
Well, I saw it on.... Well, I read it in...."
Intelligent men/women do not decide any subject
until they have carefully examined both or all sides of it.
Fools, cowards, and those
too lazy to think, accept blindly, without examination, dogmas and doctrines imposed upon them in childhood by their parents, priests, and teachers,
when their minds were immature and they could not reason.
[Some] 433,000,000 Mohammed followers believe that the Koran was brought by an Angel from Heaven; 335,000,000 Hindus believe one of their Goddesses,
Siva, has six arms; 153,000,000 Buddhists believe they will be reincarnated; 904,000,000 Christians believe a God made the world in six days, Joshua
stopped the Sun by yelling at it, and Jesus was born of a virgin and nullified natural laws to perform miracles.
There is absolutely no scientific proof of any of these claims. Science has shown them to be contrary to all known facts. It is more intelligent to
classify them as false.
These primitive beliefs have been kept alive by a vast army of priests, preachers, and rabbis
because it is to their great profit to promote
first, by imposing them on the helpless brains of children, and second, by saturating the air, TV, press, and schools with their childish
superstitions and unreasonable claims. They fool the ignorant and make the gullible and the intelligent alike pay tribute to them. Their
and incomes are exempt from taxes; they get half-fare on trains, buses, and planes; and receive billions of
dollars in grants of taxpayers' money to help build up their political power, wealth, and luxurious living. Taxes could be cut 10 percent if churches
paid their just share. That would mean a probable saving of 20 billion dollars a year to the people of the U.S. every year of their lives. Some
priests also indoctrinated with superstition from childhood probably even believe what they preach.
It pays them handsomely to do so.
