The only thing you have pointed out is that many different religions worship the Egyptian moon god.

It appears that way because you seem to think its extremely unlikely that different religions/cultures in different times used the moon as a symbol.

Then what is the purpose of it?


There is no purpose from a religious perspective.
In fact, many muslims have called for an end to its use.

Also, these posts already explained it

EDIT : Just noticed that the link in the OP was messed up. Here is the corrected link.


Their claim that Allah is a moon god is based on drawing imaginary connections between Islamic symbols and pre-Islamic relics. These ridiculous ideas have always been propagated by fraudsters and charlatans posing as experts on ancient history. These lies are then parroted by Christian internet archaeologists on forums and discussion boards everywhere. (Also, be sure to read the link to know where this moon god nonsense originated from)

All symbols have a purpose, but the leaders never seem to reveal the true nature of such, unless your apart of their hidden knowledge class.

The only point I'm making is that Islam is no different then Christians or Jewish, the leaders have put in symbols and logos which mean something, they didn't adopt it for no reason. As a Christian I don't like all of the statues of the virgin Mary because these statues make it seem like Mary was the Savior when she was not.

IMO main stream religion is what you should watch out for, whether it be Christian, Jewish or Islam, the so called High Priest, Rabbis and Imans have been deceiving the people for years.

Your question has already been covered by other posters here.

This isn't about justifying why the crescent star has become an islamic symbol.
Ratherm, its about how various cultures have independently used the moon, a natural object as a symbol.... meaning, theres no valid reason to assume a particular culture or a religion derived it from somebody else, as Christian fundamentalists claim.

Also take a look at all those non-Islamic examples of crescent moon usage in the OP.

you are saying allah, jehova and yahweh are not the same deity. but, why do all three of them command the exact same archangels ? this can't be a coincidence.

I told you that I had only read the first paragraph of your opening post.
I have not read this thread and have just now skimmed it.

Because one of them is the real God and the other is a false god.

Also, not just the angels....but Allah also guided the same prophets we know of from the bible.

Its no co-incidence.
But... prepare to hear them say something on the lines of "Mohammad copied the bible".

I hope they succeed. Many people use the crescent symbolism for actual representation of gods and goddesses. Being associated with a monotheistic religion with Shariah law on par to Christian dominionism isn't something anybody wants.

Their use of it is not religious no matter how many times it is said. Why can't Christians just stick with picking on us real pagans instead of inventing more?

It was a secular symbol to identify them as Ottomans. Much like the American flag will someday be the symbol for Christianity and french fries.

Correct if i'm wrong but doesn't Islam prohibit the use of idols? IMO a religious logo which represents the Moon is clearly an idol.


I see idols as man made things. Humans didn't create the Sun and the Moon.


The truth is, Islam is no different or any more perfect when it comes to pagan use in the faith. All religions have them. The question is do you embrace it as being ok when you know God doesn't like it.


How do you know Jesus isn't an idol and that god hates it?

That is not all it is based on. The name of the Egyptian moon god, Yah/Jah/Iah/Lah, is also part of the name Allah. The same is true of the name Yahweh. Both Allah and Yahweh are the same moon god. Neither one is the God of the Bible.
