1000+ Claims in the Quran - Invalid Unless Proven, Surah 6
18 May 2014
SURAH 6: Al-An'am (The Cattle)
(Mecca 621 AD, except 2-3 verses)
001 "In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful". Please read the surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Muslim moral code, the unjust/immoral parts of sharia, and the Quran's rules for lying, (al-Taqiyya, Kitman, Hilah, deceit, disuse/breaking of oaths (2/225, 5/89,16/91, 66/2), etc.), thieving/looting, enslaving, raids and wars, plus the rules for treatment of girls and women - free and captives - and see if you agree. Always when there is a distance between words and corresponding demands and deeds, we personally believe in the demands and deeds. Glorious words are cheap, demands and deeds are reliable. Glorifying words and claims are too cheap for anyone to use and disuse - when you read, judge from realities, not from propaganda.
002 6/1a: “Praise be to Allah - - -". Please see 1/1a above - is he worth it? (- if he exists).
003 6/1b: “Praise be to Allah, who created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -.” Often claimed, never proved. This simply is one of the many claims in the Quran every believer in any religion can use on behalf of his/her god(s) free of charge, as long as he/she can evade all requests for proof. Also see 2/22a-b above and 21/56c below.
004 6/1e: “Praise be to Allah, who created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -.” And what does Islam's "everything" look like? In short (included Earth, the Universe - beware that the Arab word for Universe in the modern meaning of the word does not exist in the Quran - and living beings): According to the Quran the “everything” = this:
High above everything - above the 7. heaven - resides Allah.
Under him are the seven heavens – one on top of the other.
The heavens are from something material - if not one could not fasten the stars to one of them, and the bodily resurrected Muslims could not live and walk around there or have their big mansions, thrones, shady trees, rivers, etc. there
The heavens are held up by invisible pillars - if not they of course would fall down.
The heavens contains Paradise - and better the higher a Heaven (= closer to Allah).
The Paradise for normal good Muslims seems according to Hadiths to be in 1. heaven. It consists of 4 or 6 or more (exact number not clear) Gardens, one more luxurious than the other
In between the heavens are the sun and the moon (the sun is not said, only indicated to be just here).
Also the sun moves across the sky. (It in reality is the Earth which spins around.)
The sun raises in the east from the Earth, and sets in a pool of dirty water on Earth in the west.
The places for sunrise and sunset was found by Dhu'l Quarnayn = Alexander the Great.
Under the sun and moon, and fastened to the lowest of the 7 heavens (37/6-7, 41/12), are all the stars. (The movements of the planets are not explained.)
Stars also are used as shooting stars to chase away bad spirits and jinns spying on Heaven.
Under the heavens and stars are clouds.
The clouds Allah sometimes breaks to pieces (raindrops).
Under the clouds the birds are kept aloof by only the will of Allah. (The real reason is the aerodynamics.)
Then there is our flat Earth.
On the Earth mountains are set down - not grown up, but set down.
The Earth is kept steady by the mountains.
Without the steadying mountains Earth might start wobbling and tip around
(today Islam points to earth-quakes, but that was not the original meaning according to Muslim scholars of the old).
On "our" Earth are rivers. Hadiths tell that 2 of them - the Nile and the Euphrates - start in Paradise.
On Earth there further are highways - made by Allah.
On the Earth also all kinds of beings live – created from clay or something or nothing.
The first man was Adam - a single man - created in somewhere between 5 and 13 different ways#.
Under our Earth (Hadith) there are more flat Earths – 7 all together.
Islam has named for all the different Earths - and tells (in Hadiths) that the lower down, the more hellish life for the inhabitants. Islam has names for and description of the inhabitants on the different Earths.
And at the bottom (Hadith) is Hell.
Hell has seven gates, each leading to a separate part of Hell - one worse than the other.
# Modern Islamic literature seems to indicate that the official point of view of Islam is that man really was created by clay or similar.
Just like what your school and modern science tell you?
(This is one of the really strong and easy to see proofs for that the Quran is not made by an omniscient god - no omniscient god makes mistakes, and absolutely not of this quantity, magnitude and stupidity.)
005 6/1f: "- - - (Allah*) made the darkness and the light". The sun made and makes the light, and darkness just is lack of light. Also see 11/7a below.
###006 6/2c: “He (Allah*) it is Who created you from clay - - -”. This is one of the many ways man (Adam) was created according to the Quran - even if Adam was created only once, according to that book. See 6/2b and 21/56c below.
007 6/2d: “- - - and then (Allah*) decreed a stated term (for you).” Predestination once more. From other places (Hadiths) we know that your “stated term” (= how long you are to live) is decided by Allah when the fetus is 4 months old = 5 months before you are born. Which means you can as well go to war for Muhammad and perhaps become rich by looting, because you will die at a predestined day no matter. A related claim: At the same time as Allah decided your time of death, he also according to Hadiths decided whether you were to end in Paradise of Hell, and there is nothing you can do to change that diction. Any comments about f.x. a benevolent god or free will for man?
Nothing of this is from the Bible.
008 6/3b: "He (Allah*) knoweth what ye hide, and what ye reveal - - -". The Quran makes it clear that Allah knows absolutely everything. But see 2/233h above.
009 6/3c: "- - - He (Allah*) knoweth the (recompense) which ye (people*) earn (by your deeds)". Then why - WHY - does he need to test his followers and others to find out what he already knows??! This even more so as he decides everything which happens according to the Quran! There is no logic in this. Also see 2/233f above.
010 6/3d: "- - - He (Allah*) knoweth the (recompense) which ye (people*) earn (by your deeds)". Of course he knows if it is true like the Hadiths tell that Allah decides whether you are to end in Hell or Paradise 5 months before you are born, and that nothing you do can change this diction - then he of course know all the time where you will end.
011 6/5d: "- - - soon they (non-Muslims*) shall learn the reality of what they used to mock at". One thing is that this just is pep-talk - a well-known technique even. Another is that many non-Muslims already knew the reality; that the Quran with all its mistakes, etc. is not from any god. No god ever was involved in a book of that quality.
012 6/6a: "See they (non-Muslims*) not how many of those before them We (Allah*) did destroy?" There were scattered ruins in and around Arabia and there were legends about earlier people. Muhammad told that all of them had been destroyed by Allah as punishment for sins. Science tells there are many other possible reasons for a house or a hamlet or a village or a town to become empty in a harsh, warlike area.
As normal in the Quran this claim is put forth without a proof. It is tempting to quote Christopher Hitchens: "What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence" - they have to bring proof to be believed by rational minds.
013 6/6b: "- - - We (Allah*) poured out rain from the skies - - -". Often claimed, never proved. This is one of the many natural phenomena Muhammad claims for his god. See 11/7a below.
014 6/7a: “If We (Allah*) had sent unto thee (Muhammad*) a written (message) on parchment, so that they (Muslims and non-Muslims*) could touch it with their hands, the Unbelievers have been sure to say: ’This is nothing but obvious magic!’” Muhammad never was able to prove anything about what he told his mostly naïve and uneducated audience. But he got questions about and demands for such proofs many times from followers and others – this is mentioned repeatedly in the Quran. He had to evade those requests and demands, and an obvious way was to find ways of explaining them away. Here the technique he uses is “No matter what proofs I produce, they will not believe anyhow, so why produce proofs at all?” Swindlers and cheats frequently use such techniques. It is obvious for anyone able to think for himself or herself that the logic is twisted and wrong – but the ones wanting to believe or the very naïve might believe in it. What is more serious is that Muhammad was an intelligent man and a man knowing a lot about how to treat and sway people. There is no way he did not know he used twisted logic and dishonest psychology and story, and that a real miracle - or more than one - had made new believers, even if some would try to call it magic. And no way that he did not know that if he produced real evidence that would strengthen his followers enormously and make huge numbers of unbelievers become believers. In a short sentence: There is no way an intelligent man did not know this excuse was a lie.
015 6/8c: “They (people*) say: ‘Why is not an angel sent down to him?’ If We (Allah*) did send down an angel, the matter would be settled at once, and no respite would be granted them”. This question – a proof f.x. by means of an angel – arose frequently. Muhammad’s often used “explanation” was this: Allah will not send down an angel until The Last Day (the Day of Doom). That means that if he sends down angles, that day becomes the Last Day (“the matter will be settled at once, and no respite would be granted them”), and in that case the unbelievers would lose their chance to become believers (“- - - no respite would be granted them”.) This “explanation” is nonsense even according to the Quran. That book tells that the angel Gabriel visited Muhammad often, it tells that angels come down to fetch the souls of the dead, it tells that angels come down to fetch your soul when you fall asleep and to return it when you wakes up, it tells that angels surround you to note down your good and bad deeds – not to mention the thousands of angels Allah sends down to do battles together with Muslims time and again. And angels visiting f.x. Abraham, Lot, and Mary.
There was not one single reason why Allah could not use one of the myriads of angles he daily and frequently sends down, as a proof for Muhammad.
On the contrary: There were all reasons for Allah to prove himself and his claimed messenger - in stark contradiction to Muhammad's claim, it had given lots of followers. Proofs: 1) Human psychology. 2) The Pharaoh's sorcerers all became Muslims because Moses made a miracle (a story which proves Muhammad knew he was lying when he said miracles would convince no-one. 3) Jesus made miracles and got many followers from this, which Muhammad knew.
A very obvious bluff and a piece of fast-talk. Muhammad's knowledge of the sorcerers' reaction to Moses' miracle proves that he knew he was lying when he claimed that the reason why Allah did not prove his existence, was that it would not make anybody believe anyhow. How many other places in the Quran did Muhammad lie? - this even more so that the Quran makes it clear Muhammad believed in the use of dishonesty as a working tool.
016 6/9a: "- - - We (Allah*) should have sent him (the angel*) as a man - - -". Why? A real angel would make quite another impression. But even as a man - why not? If this "man" could prove he was an angel, it would make a huge impression, and there is no way Muhammad did not know this. More explaining away from Muhammad about why he could prove not one single sentence of his claims about connection to a god - or the existence of the god. Worse: There is no way Muhammad did not know this was an invalid - and thus dishonest - explaining away.
But anyhow: To claim Allah had to send an angel in the shape of a man is wrong for any omnipotent god.
NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!!!
##017 6/9ba: “If We (Allah*) had made it (the proof*) an angel, We should have sent him as a man, and We (= our proof/angel*) should certainly have caused them confusion in a matter (religion*) which they have already covered with confusion.”
This is wrong. To send an angel - and an omnipotent god had no reason not to, and was/is in no way limited to send that angel dressed up or shaped like a man - would be such a strong proof for that Muhammad's claimed god and claimed religion were strongly true, that none, hardly even the very most skeptical disbelievers, would accept and believe such a proof. This is such an obvious psychological and human fact, that there is no chance a man as intelligent man and a man knowing so much as Muhammad did about how humans think and react, did not know it. One more place in where Muhammad knew he lied in the Quran.
NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!!!
018 6/10a: "Mocked were (many) Messengers before thee (Muhammad*) - - -". Muhammad was mocked. By claiming this was more or less normal for prophets, he tried to reduce the effect of the mocking - and quite likely succeeded, at least among his followers. This kind of arguments has such an effect.
019 6/10b: "- - - but their (former prophets'*) scoffers were hemmed in by the thing that they mocked". The meaning here is that the scoffers met their punishment, and the mocked prophets from the earlier times won in the end. If it is true like the Quran claims that there had been 124ooo prophets before Muhammad (the number is from Hadiths), and with the exception of a few Jewish ones not one single of them left even a tiny trace of their preaching and work, whereas their contemporary scoffers went on living like before, this claim simply is not true.
######An interesting mathematical fact: If we operate with a normal religious time frame, Adam lived something like 5ooo years before the claimed last prophet, Muhammad. If we say that Hadiths' number 124ooo had been correct, and that each of them worked for 25 years, there all the time from Adam till Muhammad should be on average 620 active prophets working for Allah around the world (more than 3 in every country during all those thousands of years). None of them (except the old Jewish ones - really working for Yahweh) left one single trace anywhere on the entire Earth. Even if you reckon the entire age of Homo Sapiens - 160ooo-200ooo years - there in case during all these eons have been 15-20 prophets working all the time. But no trace from them or a religion like Islam, a god like Allah - or a book like the Quran.
Believe it if you are able to.
#020 6/11a: “Travel through the earth and see what was the end of those who rejected the Truth”. Scattered around in Arabia and neighboring countries there were ruins of old houses, villages and towns, and there also were folk tales about older tribes and people now gone. Muhammad told these were the remains and rumors left by people destroyed by Allah because of not believing in or sins against Allah - which hardly is true in most cases. To tell the truth: Not one serious professor of history believes in this. And not one serious scientific book about history mentions such claims as a credible reason for why houses or villages or towns or cities became empty. It will take heavy proofs from Islam to convince them.
That the Quran is the truth, is just a claim, not a proved fact.
021 6/12a: "'To whom belongeth all that is in the heavens (plural and wrong) and the earth?' Say: 'To Allah'". Often claimed, never proved - and one of those things any believer in any religion can say about his god(s) free of charge, as long as he/she can evade all requests for proofs, as loose words and claims are that cheap.
022 6/12d: "He (Allah*) hath inscribed for Himself (the rule of) Mercy." See 1/1a and 2/233g above. A rule of mercy? In cases where populist words shall cover harsh realities, we always believe the realities.
023 6/12f: “That He (Allah*) will gather you together for the Day of Judgment, there is no doubt whatever.” With so many mistakes, contradictions, so much wrong logic in the teachings, there is serious doubt about anything in the Quran and in Islam – and with a good reason – included the so-called last day and judgment by a god like Allah. Besides it is contradicted by the Bible, which claims this will be the job of Yahweh. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.
024 6/12h: "It is they who have lost their souls, that will not believe". As far as Jews and Christians go, this is contradicted by the Bible. There also is a serious question about the Muslims’ souls, as it is clear that the Quran with all its mistakes, etc. is not from any god. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.
025 6/13a: "To Him (Allah*) belonged all (living beings*) - - -." One more of the many never documented claims. Keep your eyes open and your brain and knowledge engaged, and you will find many such ones in the Quran. Islam will have to prove them to be believed by us. It is again tempting to quote Christopher Hitchens: "What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence" - they have to bring proof to be believed by rational minds.
026 6/13c: "For He (Allah*) is the One Who heareth and knoweth all things." Just a reminder to Muslims: Stay in line! Also see 2/233h above.
027 6/14a: "- - - Allah, the maker of the heavens (plural and wrong) and the earth - - -". One more of the many never documented claims. Keep your eyes open and your brain and knowledge engaged, and you will find many such ones in the Quran. Islam will have to prove them to be believed by us.
028 6/14d: “But I (Muhammad*) am commanded to be the first of those who bow to Allah (in Islam) - - -“. This obviously is wrong according to Islam (though in reality it may be 100% correct - may well be that Muhammad was the very first Muslim), as the Quran claims that many were Muslims before Muhammad. (Muslims often claim - as always without documentation - that what the Quran really means here, is the first of a group, in this case the Arabs. But for one thing at least the claimed prophets Hud, Shu'ayb, and Salih were good Muslims according to the Quran, and all the three of them lived in Arabia before Muhammad - even before Moses, as Moses mentioned them according to the Quran. For another thing that is not what the Quran says - it nowhere indicates that it means the first of a group, but the first. And the language in the Quran is perfect and not to be misunderstood according to the Quran. Besides: If the book here means something else than what is clearly said, how many other places in the Quran does it mean something other than what the text really says? Other Muslims claim it means the first in quality. But in a book with perfect and unmistakable language that would be written "I am the best of those - - -."
029 6/15a: "I (Muhammad*) would, if I disobeyed my Lord (Allah*), indeed have fear of the Penalty - - -". Only if Allah exists and is correctly described in the Quran. But if f.x. the book is made up, what had Muhammad to fear if he knew it?
030 6/17: "He (Allah*) hath power over all things." Well, that is Muhammad's many times repeated but not documented claim - which Allah was totally unable (or unwilling ?) to prove, even if it obviously would have worked (in spite of Muhammad's words to the opposite - one of the times when Muhammad clearly knows he is lying in the Quran, as he was too intelligent to believe this himself. This even more so as he told about the sorcerers of the Pharaoh and about listeners to Jesus being influenced by miracles).
031 6/18a: "He (Allah*) is the Irresistible - - -". One more of the never proved claims any believer can make free of charge on behalf of his god(s) if he/she can evade any requests for proofs. Words are that cheap.
032 6/18b: "- - - (Allah is looking at you from above*), and He is the Wise, acquainted with all things." Mind your steps - and be obedient - - - which on Earth meant obedient to Muhammad in reality. Also see 2/233h above.
033 6/18c: "- - - He (Allah*) is the Wise - - -". Not if the Quran with all its wrongs is representative for his knowledge and intelligence.
Another fact: If Allah delivered the Quran and all its mistaken facts and other errors, all its internal and external contradictions, all its invalid logic, etc. there is a good reason to laugh - and laugh loudly - from claims like this.
034 6/19a: “’What thing is the most weighty in evidence (of the Quran*)?’ Say: ’Allah is witness between me (Mohammad*) and you (Muslims*) - - -”.
It is nowhere proved that Allah had anything to do with the Quran - on the contrary: All the mistakes etc. in the book prove that no god was involved, at least no omniscient one.
Can a book with that many mistakes, loose statements and invalid “signs” and “proofs” really be evidence for anything at all? - except an evidence for that something is wrong? And this verse 6/19 tells it is the weightiest evidence for Allah! (An invalid claim if not Allah really did witness.)
A claimed witness from Allah has no value if Allah did not really witness and in an indisputable way.
035 6/19c: "- - - this Quran hath been revealed to me (Muhammad*) by inspiration - - -”. Information transferred "by inspiration" is a very unreliable way, as it is impossible to know from where the inspiration came (one can be inspired by many things, included lust, dreams, and other things) - one may believe, but not know. It also is very convenient to claim inspiration if one needs or wants to add a little - some texts in the Quran have nothing to do in holy books, but were very convenient for Muhammad. It also is contradicted by the Bible: (4. Mos. 12/6) "When a prophet of the Lord is among you, I (Yahweh*) reveal myself to him in visions, I speak to him in dreams, (or sometimes speak to him directly*)" - there never in the entire Bible is mentioned "by inspiration" in such cases. Also see 26/52a below, and 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.
036 6/19e: "- - - in truth - - -". There are so many mistakes, etc. in the Quran, that one cannot just believe what it claims is true - proofs in addition are necessary. See 2/2b above and 13/1g and 40/75 below.
037 6/19f: "Can ye possibly bear witness that besides Allah there is another God?". The expression "besides Allah" demands that Allah really exists. This is nowhere proved - there only are Muhammad's not too reliable words and claims for this. The expression is invalid unless it is proved that Allah exists.
038 6/19g: "Can ye possibly bear witness that besides Allah there is another God?". This is typical for Muhammad's technique of debating - he claims without even trying to prove it that Allah exists, but just states it as a "fact", and then demands proofs from everyone else for anything. "What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence", or: "Claims without a proof may be dismissed without a proof" - Islam will have to bring real proofs to be believe by rational brains, especially as the one making the claim was such an unreliable and immoral man. (Read the Quran - skip the cheap, glorious words and read the reality; what he demanded and did, his view on the use of dishonesty and what moral rules he introduced, etc. - before you protest.)
What here backfires for Muhammad, is that the fact he lays much weight on proofs and demands proof from every opponent, is that this proves that he held proofs for essential and of high value. But all the same neither he nor Allah ever was able to give a valid proof for one single of his central religious claims. "A proofis one or more proved facts which can give only one conclusion". And we repeat: "A claim without a proof may be dismissed without a proof" - all too often unproved claims are made up claims.
039 6/19i: "- - - He (Allah*) is the One God - - -". For one thing: The Quran is not more reliable than that its claims have to be proved - and the Quran never is able to prove anything. For another thing: The Bible talks about Yahweh (and other books about other gods). As Yahweh and Allah are not the same god - too fundamentally too different teachings - there either has to be more than one god, or at least one of the two (not to mention claims about other gods) cannot exist. (And a small point here: Yahweh has proved his existences and his power according to both the Bible and to the Quran - Allah has proved absolutely nothing.)
040 6/19k: "- - - blasphemy - - -". To disbelieve in Allah only is blasphemy if Allah really exists and really is what the Quran claims, but never was able to prove - there only are the words of a not very reliable man, who on top of all had much to gain from making people believe in his tales. At least it is very clear that there is no god behind a book as full of mistakes, etc. as the Quran - and what then about the claims about Allah?
##########041 6/19l: "Truly I (Muhammad*) am innocent of - - - joining gods with Him (Allah*)". A very relevant question for Muslims here is: Is he innocent of making up Allah?
042 6/19m: "- - - joining others (other gods*) with Him (Allah*)". Not with him - instead of him. See 2/165c above and 25/18a below
043 6/21b: "Who doth more wrong than he who invented a lie (said something else than Muhammad*) against Allah - - -". But is it a lie against Allah if Allah - and the Quran - is invented? (He has not one single time proved himself, and the Quran is full of mistakes). Well, at least it is not a lie against Allah if Allah does not exist. Then it instead is a lie about Allah.
044 6/22c: "- - - the partners (to Us (Allah*)) - - -". For most non-Muslims the fact was that they had another god or other gods, not that they had gods in addition to Allah - a technique of debating where one tries to make the opposite part forget that one’s argument only is a claim, not a fact - one meets this technique many places in the Quran (Muhammad was intelligent and smart). Also see 25/18a below - and 2/165c above.
045 6/22e: "- - - the partners (to Us (Allah*)) whom ye (non-Muslims*) (invented and) talked about - - -". The big question here is, however: Is also Allah an invented god? As the Quran with all its mistakes, etc. is not from any god, that is highly likely.
046 6/24b: "- - - the (lie) which they non-Muslims*) invented - - -". But what if their beliefs - at least for some of them - were not invented? As the Quran is not from a god, unproved claims in the Quran are not reliable. (And for that case: What about Muslims if the Quran is an invented book? - the fact that a book with so much wrong facts, etc. is not from a god, makes this a disturbing possibility, not to say probability.)
At least as far as the Bible concerns, this claim also is wrong in another way: The Bible is not falsified (which is Muhammad's underlying claim here). This is strongly proved by both science and - against their will and wish - Islam, by being unable to find even one proved falsification in some 44ooo relevant scriptures and fragments older than 610 AD = strong circumstantial and empirical evidences for that the claimed falsification of the Bible is wrong.
047 6/25a: "- - - We (Allah*) hath thrown a veil on their hearts, so they understand it not - - -". Allah often denies people the possibilities of finding Islam and believing in it. And then he sends them to Hell as sinners. A fair and benevolent god? - compare to f.x. "The Lost Sheep" or "- - - in the 11. hour - - -" (Luke 15/8-10 and 15/11-31, Matt. 18/12-14 and 20/8-13) in NT: Definitely not the same god as Allah. (Islam often tries to explain that it is the person who is the really guilty one, not Allah, because Allah doing things like this grates against claims that Allah is a good and benevolent god. But when they make such explanations, they never mention the fact that according to MANY places in the Quran, Allah decides and predestines everything which happens in the world - and thus everything you do. Thus there is no rational way of getting around what is told here: Allah denies you the possibility to find the way to Paradise if he just decides so.
048 6/25b: "- - - if they (non-Muslims*) saw every one of the Signs (intended to mean indication or proof for Allah*), they would not believe in them - - -". Which far from is strange, as there is not one single sign in the entire Quran or anywhere else which proves there is a god, not to mention proves that the claimed god in case is Allah. Any believer in any religion can disuse the claimed signs on behalf of his/her god just as easily and cheaply as Muhammad did. In not one single case it is proved that it is Allah who is behind the phenomena Muhammad uses as "signs", and thus the claims are invalid. (There is a possible exception for some of the signs "borrowed" from the Bible, and where there were witnesses, but they in case prove Yahweh, not Allah.)
But there also is another side with this sentence: There is no chance that an intelligent man and a man knowing so much about people, like Muhammad, did not know that if people got even one single sure proof for a god, at least may would believe. ###This simply is one more place in the Quran where Muhammad knew he lied.
049 6/25g: "These (the tales in the Quran*) are nothing but tales of the ancient." This skeptic's had good reason to say. None of the tales in the Quran is made by any god - and hardly any even by Muhammad. They practically without exception are histories, legends, fairy tales, etc. which were known or well known in Arabia at that time. Muhammad just "borrowed" them, twisted them some, and told he had got that version from Allah. But we honestly doubt an omniscient god was unable to tell his own tales - and if he had to borrow from Earth, why only from in and around Arabia if he wanted to be god for the whole Earth? Only if humans in Arabia made the verses and surahs that was necessary. Thus at least the stories claimed to be from the Bible, all were more or less wrong compared to the Bible and sometimes also to known history. The same goes for f.x. the story about Alexander the Great (Dhu'l Qarnayn in the Quran).
050 6/28a: "- - - in their (non-Muslims'*) eyes will become manifest what before they concealed". Only if the Quran tells the full and only truth, and definitely not if the non-Muslims believe in a perhaps existing god like f.x. Yahweh. Also see 6/24c above.
This is a reference to Muhammad's claim that the Bible was falsified, which is wrong as both science and Islam have produced good circumstantial and empirical proofs for that the Bible is not falsified, by being unable to prove one single falsification in the entire Bible - some mistakes, yes, falsifications, no. The best proof for this is the official Islam's silence about such a proved case.

##051 6/28c: "But if they (sinners in Hell*) were returned (to a second chance on Earth*), they would certainly relapse to the things they were forbidden - - -". This is one more of the places in the Quran where Muhammad knew he was lying. There is not one chance that a man as intelligent and with so much knowledge about people as Muhammad, did not know that after really experiencing a place like Hell, each and everybody would do their outmost not to end there again - and after such a terrifying lesson, most of them would succeed. This even more so as such an experience would make more or less all of them believers, as they had got a solid proof for that the religion was true. It is nearly incredible that intelligent people - not to mention educated modern people of today - are able to believe a claim like this.
NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!!!
052 6/28d: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) are indeed liars". At least a clear message to Muhammad's followers - if it is true, is another question. Besides it is an ironic message from the only one of the big religions which accepts lies in the religion (f.x. Muhammad was too intelligent not to know he was lying when he claimed miracles would not make people believe - but he needed to explain away the lack of proofs for Allah), and as work tools - f.x. al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie) and Kitman (the lawful half-truth) and worse.
053 6/31a: "Lost indeed are they who treat it as a falsehood that they (humans*) must meet Allah - - -". They are lost only if the Quran is from a god, if that god is Allah, and if in addition the Quran tells the full truth and only the truth.
054 6/31d: "- - - a falsehood that they (humans*) must meet Allah - - -". One of the Quran's many, many never documented claims. Claims without proofs can be dismissed without proofs - they are invalid as facts.
055 6/32a: "But best is the Home in the Hereafter - - -". This may be true if there really is a god somewhere - but only for the ones who believe in a real god. An interesting point, as according to both the Bible and the Quran both Yahweh and Jesus have proved they are or are involved in something supernatural, whereas the only thing Allah and Muhammad have proved, is that they have been unable to bring forth one single real proof for anything central, and instead resorts to unproved claims and logically invalid "proofs" - the hallmark of cheats, deceivers and swindlers.
056 6/32c: "Will they (non-Muslims*) not understand?" But that was just what at least some of them understood very clearly; that there were so big and so fundamental differences between the Bible and the Quran, that Yahweh and Allah were not the same god.
057 6/34a: "Rejected were the Messengers before thee (Muhammad*) - - -." Muhammad was rejected by many. But cheer up: Rejection was normal for real prophets! - "ergo" Muhammad is a prophet like other prophets. Pep-talk. There is some pep-talk in the Quran.
058 6/34b: "- - - there is none that can alter the Words (and Decrees) of Allah". At least when it comes to what is claimed sent down in the Quran, reality alters quite a lot of it. (But this point is indicating the predestination - Allah decides and nobody can change his decisions, according to the Quran. Incompatible with the Bible, and also incompatible with Quranic claims about f.x. free will for man, any effect of good or bad deeds, prayers, etc., as everything is predestine long time on beforehand. Also it is not possible for Allah to reward or punish without changing his Plan for you.)

059 6/35a: “- - - yet if thou were able to seek a tunnel in the ground or a ladder to the skies and bring them (people – because also Muslims asked for proofs*) a Sign – (what good?)” Yes, the rhetoric question would be: What good would a real proof do? And the as rhetoric – but wrong because of twisted logic and even more twisted psychology – would be: Nothing, because the unbelievers would not believe anyhow. Who but deceivers need to twist logical and psychological facts? The real fact is that some real proofs had given many new followers. Also see 6/7–9 above and 6/35b just below.
Muhammad was too intelligent and knew too much about people not to know that if there had been real proofs, many had become believers. One more place where Muhammad knew he was lying in the Quran.
NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!!!
060 6/35g: "- - - those who are swayed by ignorance - - -". Who is the ignorant one? - the one who knows the Bible and sees that it tells things very different from what Muhammad claimed it told, and who in addition uses their brain for thinking things over? - or those who just blindly believe = live in "taqlid" (uncritical acceptance of what their fathers just believe is the truth? After all in all other aspects of life to believe blindly what one is told, is the most sure way to be cheated.
061 6/36b: “Those who listen (in truth), be sure, will accept - - -.” Pep-talk - the ones who does not accept Muhammad, is because they do not really listen to him. That this for many was not true, did - and does - not matter very much for pep-talk, as long as his believers believed/believe it.
It also is a most open question what he/she will do if he/she has some knowledge to compare the many claims to, and in addition uses his/her brain. This even more so if he/she has some education and is used to think him-/herself, not only just to swallow readymade claims uncritically (taqlid). But in many Islamic cultures the children and youths are not trained in thinking things over themselves - live in taqlid! - accept and believe what your fathers tell you!
062 6/36f: "- - - as to the dead, Allah will raise them up - - -". This is an interesting claim you meet several places in the Quran - interesting because Allah never proved he could resurrect dead ones - often claimed, but never proved - whereas Yahweh proved it several times if the old books tell the truth (f.x. 1. Kings 17/22, 2. Kings 4/35-36, Mark 5/41, John 11/44, Luke 7/15, Matt. 27/52, Acts 9/40, Acts 20/10 - and the Quran 5/110a).
063 6/37a: “They (people*) say: ’Why is not a Sign sent down to him (Muhammad*) from his Lord (Allah*)?” People saw things might be - or was - seriously wrong. Many had questions and requests for proofs - but Muhammad was not able to deliver one single unmistakable proof. Only lots of fast-talk to explain it away, and the many, but logically invalid claimed "signs".
064 6/37c: “Allah hath certainly power to send down a Sign - - -”. But he never did - and Muhammad never was able to produce anything but fast words and less than convincing “explanations”. That is to say: Muslims are indoctrinated to believe it - and not to think for themselves, but only to obey and believe the imam (taqlid). Because of this many of them honestly and without thinking things over, believe that invalid claims are proofs.
065 6/37e: "- - - most of them (non-Muslims*) understand not". That was just what many of them did - understood that something was seriously wrong.
066 6/39b: "Those who rejects Our (Allah's*) Signs are deaf and dumb - - -". The fact that there does not exist one single valid sign which proves Allah, may instead indicate that someone has tried a little cheating and then has been looked through by people with knowledge and/or intelligence - here the opposite of deaf and dumb. But we may remind you that to believe blindly often has the same effect as being deaf and dumb.
067 6/39d: "- - - in the midst of darkness profound - - -". The question is who is in darkness: The ones who see that something is seriously wrong in the Quran, and thus with Muhammad and Islam, or they who believe blindly (taqlid) in a book so full of errors, contradictions, etc. that it is heresy to blame a god for it, and a book dictated by a man liking power, riches (at least for bribes) and women, and a man believing in lies and dishonesty as working tools (al-Taqiyya - the lawful lie, Kitman - the lawful half-truth, betrayal, and broken words/promises/oaths).
068 6/40a: "(In*) - - - the Hour (that ye dread), would ye then call upon other than Allah?" When in danger or difficulties humans often call on a deity, this even some not strong believers. But they call on the god they believe in - which means that no-one but Muslims call on Allah.
Besides in a time of distress one would not call on a god who has never proved himself, so that most likely he does not exist. One would choose one who perhaps exists. Well, if one really believes in a fictive god, one often calls upon him - or her - anyhow when in difficulties, but a fictive god can never help. It frequently happens, though, that things goes well and one thanks the fictive god, but what one in such cases should have thanked, is the laws of chance, one's own cleverness which made one react correctly, or similar things.
##069 6/41a: “Nay - On Him (Allah*) would ye (people*) call (if you were in distress*) - - -", Definitely not, as most likely he is a made up god - the Quran and its many errors prove that the chances for that he exists are practically nil - and if he exists, the question is if he is a god (not f.x. a dressed up Iblis/the Devil or something - the moral code, etc. in the Quran does not make such an explanation impossible to say the least of it).
070 6/41c: “- - - if it be His (Allah’s*) will, He would remove (the distress) - - -”. He or nature or chance or yourself or a helper? There is no case in all the history where Allah undisputedly clear has helped anyone. Also see 6/41a just above.
071 6/42: "Before thee (Muhammad*) We (Allah*) sent (messengers) to many nations - - -". Muhammad claimed there had been sent messengers for Islam to all groups of humans, all mankind, throughout the history - and prehistory. The number 124ooo prophets through the millenniums are mentioned in Hadiths. The problem, however, is that no traces of all these claimed prophets or of the teaching of a monotheistic religion have ever been found, neither in history, nor in legends, nor in architecture (temples, etc), art, archeology, or anywhere - not even in fairy tales. The only exception is Israel, where a "narrow string" - often only one of any consequence at a time scattered through many centuries - kept the one god religion alive and mainly dominant. There is nothing else. Well, there are episodes like Akn Aton and his sun god in Egypt, but those few do not count here, especially as they clearly were pagan religions. Similar goes for Zaroastrism in Persia. Nothing from Islam. No traces. And when you compare to the results of a few dozen real prophets in Israel + the traces Muhammad - one single claimed prophet - left, and are told that 124ooo others did not leave a single trace, you simply do not believe there ever were all those prophets - you believe it all is fantasy simply. If not Islam proves anything, but they never do - only claims. And remember: "Claims without proofs can be dismissed without proofs" - and even more so if there are strong indicia or even proofs for that they are wrong. The number 124ooo is not true - like so much else within Islam. Most likely the correct number is nil - and this may include Muhammad's claim about being a prophet (he according to the Quran was unable to make prophesies - "see the unseen" - and a man unable to make prophesies is no prophet).
###072 6/43b: "- - - their hearts became hardened, and Satan made their (sinful) acts seem alluring to them". This is an interesting sentence, as it is clear that the Quran with all its mistakes is not from a god, but that one of the few real possibilities is that it came from a devil, perhaps dressed up like the angel Gabriel. A number of immoral and even horrible things seem alluring to Muslims, and one has to have a much hardened heart to be able to do some of the things Muslims have done through the times, and some still do.
073 6/45a: "Of the wrongdoers the last remnant was cut off (killed*). Praise be to Allah - - -". Yes, praise be to Allah for that all non-Muslims and sinners there (actually many places) were killed - lots of millions of non-Muslims have been killed or murdered by Muslims. Tales like this in a claimed holy book plus the preaching in accordance with such verses, have its effect on the mentality of the followers. This verse is one of the reasons for the disregard Muslims have for non-Muslims ("half human value? - or less?" - from a recent debate in Pakistan), and the disregard for other peoples' property and well-being and lives: Rape a girl in Eritrea - it is "good and lawful" as we call this a Jihad, and her well-being does not interest neither us nor Islam. Kill an American - if he had been old enough, he had had to pay tax to America, and thus he is guilty of fighting Islam and merits to be killed (believe it or not, but this argument really is not only used, but widespread: "All Americans are guilty and can be killed, because they have to pay tax to USA" - and they do not even check if they really have paid tax (children, a student, a housewife, someone permanently ill, etc. - not all pay tax). ###Jihad = "self defense in the widest meaning of the word", so wide that it is a parody).
####074 6/45b: "Of the wrongdoers the last remnant was cut off (killed*). Praise be to Allah - - -". ########This "Praise be to Allah" is one of the points which makes Islam a morally sick and distasteful religion. A claimed benevolent and good god who is to be praised for stealing, rape, slave taking, extortion, repeated atrocities, apartheid, and mass murder, and for the reason that they had another religion only, is distasteful outside our vocabulary, and as wrong morally. We are sorry - we have big vocabularies from lives in reading and learning, but we do not have strong enough words for this.
######A pinnacle of a high moral code for any religion anywhere in the world.
Not to mention one of the really strong proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god, and for that Jesus and Muhammad are not in the same religion, not to mention in the same line of prophets. Read this claim from Muhammad, and then read the words of Jesus - ########it will take a great amount of naivety and wishful thinking to be able to believe those two ever were in the same religion or represented the same god.
Are there any similarities between the Quran's moral code and the ones of f.x. the Mafia, the Cosa Nostra, the Chinese Triads, etc.?
Muslims able to glorify Muhammad, must be low on real knowledge - or somewhat special beings.
075 6/46b: "See how We (Allah*) explain the Signs - - -". There are in the entire Quran no explanations of any of the claimed "signs" - only claims regarding them.
BUT THE MOST CENTRAL POINT HERE IS JUST THIS THAT THE QURAN CONFIRMS THAT THINGS ACCORDING TO THE QURAN ARE EXPLAINED = TO BE UNDERSTOOD LITERALLY. THIS DOCUMENTS THAT WHEN ISLAM AND MUSLIMS CLAIM THAT ERRORS, CONTRADICTIONS, ETC. AND OTHER BAD POINTS DO NOT MEAN WHAT THE TEXTS SAY, BUT ARE ALLEGORIES OR SOMETHING, SUCH CLAIMS AND EXPLAINING AWAY ARE WRONG. BESIDES: WHO CAN EXPLAIN BETTER THAN AN OMNISCIENT GOD?
076 6/47a: "Think ye (people*), if the punishment of Allah comes to you - - - will any be destroyed except those who do wrong?" The tsunami of 26. Dec. 2004 hit Muslims much harder than all other religions put together. The numbers are unsure, but some 250ooo vs. some 50ooo. Were all those 250ooo Muslims bad people? - #####and only some 50ooo non-Muslims in that wide area were bad? Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, Christians, Pagans - only 1/5 as many bad ones among them? Well, if you add that there are 4-5 times as many non-Muslims as Muslims in this world, does it indicate that Muslims on average are 20+ times as bad as non-Muslims?
077 6/47c: "- - - those who do wrong - - -". One of many names for non-Muslims. Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
078 6/48a: "We (Allah*) send the Messengers only to give good news and to warn." In that case Muhammad was no messenger from Allah - he was too much of a thief/robber/rapist/enslaver and of a bloody robber baron/warlord/murderer and more. And later an enforcer: "Become Muslim or fight us and die"- that was the choice much of Arabia (and others) got. "- - - only to give good news - - -"? Not even wrong, but much stronger than wrong. (But this was in 621 AD before he started to become powerful and either became morally destroyed or could show his true moral and personality. Absolute power often works like that.
079 6/48b: "- - - nor shall they (good Muslims in the claimed next life*) grieve". That will entirely depend on what they in reality meet in the possible next life - remember that the Quran with all its mistakes, etc. is not from any god.
###080 6/50a: "- - - nor do I (Muhammad*) know what is hidden - - -". Muslims and Islam often tell about things Muhammad foresaw, and claims this and this prove Muhammad was connected to something supernatural - in spite of Muhammad's problems with explaining away his total lack of proofs and miracles, including foreseeing. Also in spite of Aishah's clear statements in Hadiths that the ones claiming Muhammad could foresee the future, were wrong. And here he himself states that he does not know what hidden - the not visible and the future.
##########3333Muhammad here simply confirms that he is unable to make prophesies - and thus he is killing all such claims from Muslims!!
This verse - 6/50 - also is a clear proof for that Muhammad was no prophet: A person unable to make prophesies - "know what is hidden" - by definition is no prophet. (F.x. 5. Mos. 18/21 - in the same speech of Moses where Islam claims Moses foresees Muhammad when talking about "a prophet like me" - quite an irony when 18/21 indirectly, but clearly tells Muhammad was not even a prophet. (And among many others 18/2 tells Moses were speaking about Jewish "brothers" - Islam has cherry-picked and twisted 18/15 and 18/18 in an al-Taqiyya.))
081 6/50ba: "- - - nor do I (Muhammad*) tell you (people) I am an angel". With his CV he had better not - and this even more so later on. (Surah 6 is from ca. 621 AD - before Islam was changed to a religion of hate and war.)
##########082 6/50g: (A comment 6/39 to verse 6/50): "This denial on the part of the Prophet (Muhammad*) of any claim to supernatural power - - -". That Islam accepts and states that Muhammad had no supernatural powers, is worth remembering when Muslims talk about all his miracles - f.x. from Hadiths (which the Quran by means of among others this verse proves are all made up). But far worse: It is here - and other places in the Quran - clear that Muhammad had no supernatural powers, and that in addition Allah made no miracles connected to him, #####and all the same Islam in its books and through its imams etc. tells and boasts about and uses for proof for Allah and for Muhammad's connection to Allah, to all its followers the shining miracles Muhammad is claimed to have performed - miracles they know the Quran proves are fairy tales! And similar for prophesies - a special kind of miracles = the ability to "see the unseen". What does this tell about Islam as an institution, about the religion, and about the religious leaders in Islam?! Not to mention the question: Can a religion be a true one when its leaders have to use what they know are made up tales and lies? - and how much of the teaching and arguments then are lies?
Also: His admitted total lack of supernatural powers - and supernatural powers include the power of prophesying - strengthens the proof in 6/50a for that he was no real prophet.
083 6/52b: "- - - unjust - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
084 6/53: "Thus did We (Allah*) try some of them (Muslims*) - - -". Once more: Why does an omniscient god need to try anyone? - he knows everything already, and especially if he predestines everything, like the Quran claims many places. (But there is logic if it is Muhammad who needs to be able to explain hardship his followers meet.)
085 6/54c: "- - - your Lord (Allah*) hath inscribed for Himself (the rule of) Mercy - - -". This surah is from 621 AD and Mecca - a time when Islam still was a quite peaceful religion, and perhaps these words were not too bad at that time. #########But the religion changed very much from 622 AD on and the flight to Medina - a fact Muslims never mention, and always tries to avoid explaining - to a brutal religion of war. This sentence was not true after ca. 624 AD. Besides: ########Why does Allah - or Muhammad - suddenly change the religion so brutally much, from relatively peaceful to a religion of war? Can it have something to do with that Muhammad suddenly needed warriors for his raids?
086 6/55a: "Thus do We (Allah*) explain the Signs in detail - - -". How are his claimed signs explained here? They are explained nowhere in the entire Quran - there are lots of claims, but no valid explanations, as there are no valid signs.
BUT THE MOST CENTRAL POINT HERE IS JUST THIS THAT THE QURAN CONFIRMS THAT THINGS ACCORDING TO THE QURAN ARE EXPLAINED IN DETAIL = TO BE UNDERSTOOD LITERALLY. THIS DOCUMENTS THAT WHEN ISLAM AND MUSLIMS CLAIM THAT ERRORS, CONTRADICTIONS, ETC. AND OTHER BAD POINTS IN THE QURAN DO NOT MEAN WHAT THE TEXTS SAY, BUT ARE ALLEGORIES OR SOMETHING, SUCH CLAIMS AND EXPLAINING AWAY ARE WRONG. BESIDES: WHO CAN EXPLAIN BETTER THAN AN OMNISCIENT GOD?
087 6/56c: "- - - those who receive guidance (Muslims*)." You do not receive much real guidance from a book full of errors and with a partly detestable moral and ethics" and even accepting dishonesty in many cases. (F.x. Al-Taqiyya - the lawful lie, Kitman - the lawful half-truth, and worse.)
088 6/57c: "The Command rests with none but Allah - - -". The decision and predestination: Allah commands - decides - everything, and of course according to his predestined Plan. (But nothing of this is ever proved.
#089 6/57e: “He (Allah) declares the Truth”. May be he does, but in that case outside the Quran, as what is referred in the Quran, at best is only partly the truth - too many mistaken facts, too many contradictions, too many mistakes in the Arab language according to literature, too many invalid “signs” and “proofs” - and may be some other mistakes, too - - - perhaps even religious mistakes (why should they be exceptions?) Plus a lot of unclear language. That the Quran is the truth, is just a claim, not a proved fact. Actually: With so many mistakes like you find in the Quran, it at best is partly the truth.
090 6/57g: "- - - He (Allah*) is the best of judges". Not if he judges according to some parts of the morality code in the Quran, and some of the rules in sharia - a couple of those are the most horrible and unjust laws we have met in any judicial system.
091 6/59d: “Not a leaf doth fall but with his knowledge - - -”. If Allah has so detailed knowledge about everything, why then does he have to test his followers and others?! - this even more so if it is true like the Quran claims many places, that Allah decides and predestines everything!
092 6/59e: "- - - a Record - - -". A reference to Allah's Book of Records. But: Why does an omniscient god need a record?
093 6/60b: "- - - (Allah*) hath knowledge of all that ye have done by day - - -". See 2/233h above.
094 6/60d: "- - - in the end (at the Day of Doom*) unto Him (Allah*) will be your return - - -". If Allah exists and is a god in accordance with the tales of the Quran - - - and if the Quran's tales are true in every detail about this.
095 6/61a: "He (Allah*) is the Irresistible - - -". This and similar are often claimed, but never proved. It takes blind belief (taqlid) to believe in it without proofs, especially as there are so many errors in the Quran - but then Muhammad glorified and Islam glorifies blind belief - taqlid - (though they do not use that word talking about Muslims), as none of them could/can prove any of their central claims. In all other aspects of life, blind belief is the easiest way to be deceived, but in religion Muhammad glorified it and Islam glorifies it, in spite of that all claimed information comes only from a hardly reliable man believing in the use of lies, etc. (f.x. al-Taqiyya - the lawful lie - and Kitman - the lawful half-truth) and even in broken words/promises/oaths for working tools, but liking power and riches (at least for bribes) and women. Is there a connection?
096 6/61c: "- - - He (Allah*) sets guardians over you." Here is a contradiction. Guardians mean angels, and other places in the Quran makes it clear it is more than one who looks after you at the same time - and all the time. But f.x. 6/8 says: "If We did send down an angel, the matter would be settled at once, and no respite would be granted them" = your life would come to an end or it would be the Day of Doom according to Islam. 6/61 says guardians (= angels, plural) take care of you. And for that case it is several places in the Quran said that the angel Gabriel is sent down to Muhammad. And Abraham, Lot, Mary, inhabitants in Sodom and Gomorrah saw angels. But 6/8 says no angel can be sent down because then everything will be over. A clear contradiction.
097 6/61e: "- - - Our angels take his soul - - -". But the Arab word used for angel here, is "rusul" - the same word which the Quran uses for Muhammad in the meaning "messenger". If you instead insert this meaning of the word in this claimed clear and distinct language, you get "- - - Our messenger (Muhammad*) take his soul - - -". Knowing something about the real Muhammad, this may provoke a few thoughts. Muhammad took thousands and Islam millions and more lives and souls. (And as the Quran and all its errors, etc. are not from any god, likely those souls were lost also if there is a next life.)
098 6/62a: "Then (the Day of Doom*) are men returned unto Allah - - -". If Allah exists and is a god according to the tales of the Quran - - - and if the Quran's tales are true in every detail about this.
099 6/62d: "- - - Allah - - - the (only) Reality - - -". Incompatible with the Bible, and: Is he a reality? There exists not one single documentation - ONLY the word of a not very reliable man unable to prove one single of his central words - a man with very doubtful morality, a man who clearly lied sometimes, a man who made lying, half truths (al-Taqiyya and Kitman) parts of his religion, a man who advocated breaking even your oaths if that gave a better result /2/225, 5/89, 16/91, 66/2) - and a man lusting for riches, for bribes, and for power - and for women - and not "specific" on how to lay his hands on any of those three.
100 6/62e: "- - - is not His (Allah's*) the Command?". Only if Allah exists and is a god in accordance with the tales of the Quran - - - and if the Quran's tales are true in every detail about this.
101 6/64a: "It is Allah that delivereth you from these and all (other) distresses - - -". A claim - but only a claim. Like normal the Quran never proves anything - is unable to prove anything. Is it strange that Muhammad idolized and preached blind belief for his followers? But not proved claims in reality are weak. ####"Any not proved claim can be dismissed without a proof" - also another way of saying that the duty of proof rests on the one who claims something. It is not the duty of the opponent to disprove it.
#102 6/65b: "See how We (Allah*) explains the Signs - - -", This somewhat cryptic claim you find several places in the Quran - cryptic because the claimed "signs" never are explained. Not once is it really explained how come that this and this really is a sign for Allah, neither anything about the claimed "signs" have any deeper meaning. It only is claimed that this and this and this are "signs" - intended to mean proofs (the word "proof" is even used a few times) - for Allah, and that is all - - - and the claims all have that in common that they are logically invalid, mostly just because it is not proved that Allah really is behind it (there may be a few exceptions for things "borrowed" from the Bible, but they in case prove Yahweh, not Allah).
BUT THE MOST CENTRAL POINT HERE IS JUST THIS THAT THE QURAN CONFIRMS THAT THINGS ACCORDING TO THE QURAN ARE EXPLAINED = TO BE UNDERSTOOD LITERALLY. THIS DOCUMENTS THAT WHEN ISLAM AND MUSLIMS CLAIM THAT ERRORS, CONTRADICTIONS, ETC. AND OTHER BAD POINTS, DO NOT MEAN WHAT THE TEXTS SAY, BUT ARE ALLEGORIES OR SOMETHING, SUCH CLAIMS AND EXPLAININGS AWAY ARE WRONG. BESIDES: WHO CAN EXPLAIN BETTER THAN AN OMNISCIENT GOD?
103 6/66b: "- - - it (the signs*) is the Truth." The Quran claims they are true, but for one thing no documentation for that Allah is even involved is ever available, even though it should be easy for an omnipotent god, for another any priest in any religion can say just the same on behalf of his god(s) about the same claimed "signs", and not least: The Quran is so full of mistakes and of invalid claims, that it is difficult to believe anything without external proofs in addition.
104 6/66d: “Not mine (Muhammad’s*) is the responsibility for arranging your (religious*) affairs.” This was in 621 AD – Muhammad got other ideas after 622 AD.
105 6/67: "For every Message is a limit of time". Islam explains that the reason why new messages had to be sent now and then to prophets and people, was that the times changed and new messages were needed to cover the changes. But neither the Quran nor Islam ever explained:
The Quran claims it is a copy of the revered and timeless ”mother book" in Heaven - a book which is from the beginning of time or perhaps from eternity. How was it possible to change the "mother book" to make copies adjusted for new times? = the new editions of the scriptures/Quran claimed sent down.
Times have changed more since 1789 (French revolution) - yes only the last century, not to mention from 632 AD until today - than it did during all the many millenniums from the dawn of Homo Sapiens till Muhammad. How come no new teaching - yes, not even a single small prophet is needed now? - the world really could need something!
The teaching of the Bible - which the Quran claims is from the same god as the Quran - changed from partly strict in OT to a lot milder with Jesus - may be the god saw that during the long (206 years - 27 BC to 180 AD) Pax Romana in a wide area, a more mild and beneficial version of his teaching finally had a chance to take hold and grow strong enough to meet the ups and downs of the future. How come that his next claimed change - Islam - then was not back to the old and partly harsh teaching, but back to something much worse; a pure war religion built to a large degree on haughtiness and disregard for others, and on blood, war, suppression and lies? - and contradicting the most fundamental parts of his moral code in the Bible?
106 6/68c: “- - - sit not thou (Muslim?*) in the company of those who do wrong (non-Muslims*)” A very clear order. And a warning of possible social reactions from fellow Muslims. And may be Muhammad also did not want rational questions or facts from the outside - leaders of sects (at this time - 621 AD - Islam just was a fringe sect) often do not like true information that does not fit their teaching, or rational questions.
####107 6/69a: "On their (non-Muslims'*) account no responsibility falls on the righteous, but (their duty) is to remind them (everybody*), that they may (learn to) fear Allah". A complicated way to say this: "It is the duty of all good Muslims to work for spreading Islam – proselytize". Something to remember and beware of - especially as using also al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie) and Kitman (the lawful half-truth), etc. are recommended if they will give a better effect at defending or forwarding – proselytizing - Islam.
108 6/70a: “Leave alone those who take their religion to be mere play and amusement - - -.” Muhammad got more power – and other ideas – later.
109 6/70i: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) persisted in rejecting Allah". Not strange as they saw things in Muhammad's teaching were much wrong - his sources often said other things than he claimed they said, and this especially goes for differences to the Bible. The reason here is likely to be that Muhammad knew legends, etc. about and or based on the Bible, but not the Bible itself - at least only very superficially.
110 6/71b: "Shall we indeed call on others besides Allah - - -". If Allah is a made up god, one might instead try to call on others not besides, but instead of Allah. Based only on a book full of mistakes, there is not much of a chance that the god Allah exists, this even more so as he never has proved or manifested himself. Never (guess if Islam had screamed about it if our information here had been wrong!)
111 6/71c: "- - - things (other gods*) that can do us neither good nor harm - - -." It is clear that made up gods have no effect. What also is clear, is that Allah has never done anything which is documented, not one thing - there are lots of claims for him being a god, but not one single documentation. But "- - - it is in the nature of man to regard the beliefs which have been imprinted in him from childhood, and which he shares with his social environments, as the only true and possible ones - - -", to quote Islam (M.A. comment 6/93 to verse 6/108). So Muslims believe uncritically he is a god. Also remember the Arab word "taqlid" - uncritical blind belief in what your father believed was the truth, because so his father had told him.
Also: If made up god can do nothing, and Allah has never proved himself to be able to do anything, what does this indicate?
If Yahweh according to the Bible and to the Quran could let Jesus make proofs for connection to something supernatural, and if Allah = Yahweh like the Quran claims, it just is fast-talk outside any logic that Allah could not send proofs to Muhammad, if Muhammad was his representative. This even more so as people believed in Jesus to a large part because his miracles - and Pharaoh's sorcerers according to the Quran came to believe because of a miracle Moses made - whereas Muhammad's excuse is that no-one would believe even if he made miracles. (To be very polite: Muhammad knew he was lying each time he used this excuse - he was too intelligent not to see this.) And: There has been proved not one single act of good or bad from Allah himself since he was launched by Muhammad 1400 years ago! He has himself never done any documented good or harm - the teaching about him, yes, he himself never (Muslims had told about it with letters made by fire and more, if there had been even one single case). Allah personally has been able to "do neither good nor harm".
112 6/71d: "- - - receiving guidance from Allah - - -". Not one proved case of guidance from Allah is registered any place any time. Not one.
113 6/71g: "Allah's guidance is the (only) guidance - - -". But if Allah's guidance = the teachings of the Quran, there are too many mistakes, etc. to be any reliable guidance.
114 6/72a: "To establish regular prayers - - -". This with 5 - or another number - of prayers a day at regular times is something you do not find in the Bible neither in OT nor in NT. There you pray when you feel for it or when there is an extra reason. This fact that for Allah the fixed prayers are so essential that it is one of the five official "pillars" of the religion of Allah, whereas Yahweh is totally uninterested in such formalism, is one of the many 100% proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god. It simply is incompatible with the Bible.
115 6/72c: "- - - for it is to Him (Allah*) that we shall be gathered together". If Allah exists. If he is behind the tales of the Quran. And if the Quran in addition tells the full truth and only the truth.
116 6/73a: "It is He (Allah*) Who created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -". Often claimed, never proved. This just is one of the many claims in the Quran any believer can make free of charge on behalf of any god, as long as no proof has to be produced.
117 6/73d: "- - - He (Allah*) saith, 'Be', behold, it is." The Quran other places claims Jesus could not be the son of the god, because the god had no woman (wrong: In the very old Hebrew religion there was a female - Yahweh's Amat - but over centuries and millennia she was forgotten in that very masculine society. Source: New Scientist and others, and thus the god might have got a son in the "normal" way in spite of the Quran's words about this a couple of places). But may be the god said: "Be a son", and behold, Jesus was. And who are we who say that a god does not like a son?
118 6/73f: "His (Allah's*) Word is the Truth". See 2/2b above.
119 6/73g: "- - - (the Quran is*) the Truth - - -". See 13/1g and 40/75 below.
120 6/73h: "His (Allah's*) will be the dominion - - -". Often claimed, never proved. This just is one of the many claims in the Quran any believer can make free of charge on behalf of any god, as long as no proof has to be produced.
121 6/73l: "- - - He (Allah*) is the Wise - - -". Not if the Quran represents his wisdom - too much is wrong there.
Another fact: If Allah delivered the Quran and all its mistaken facts and other errors, all its internal and external contradictions, all its invalid logic, etc. there is a good reason to laugh - and laugh loudly - from claims like this. But of course if somebody else made the Quran, of course Allah may be wise if he exists.
122 6/73m: "- - - He (Allah*) is - - - well acquainted (with all things)". Stay in line and be good and obedient - Allah sees you. Among other things a small reminder.
123 6/74-83: These stories about Abram/Abraham are not from the Bible. There also is no mentioning about religious disagreement between Abram/Abraham and his father in the Bible.
124 6/79b: "- - - Him (here claimed to be Allah*) who created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -". Often claimed, never proved. And a claim anyone can make on behalf of any god, as long as demands for proofs can be pooh-poohed. But remember: "Any claim which is without a proof, can be dismissed without a proof".
125 6/80b: (YA 901): "His (Abraham's*) people disputed with him - - -". Quoted from the comment: "If spiritual enlightenment goes so far as to take a man (even today Islam says "a man", not "a person" - women counts little*) beyond his ancestral worship, people will come and worship with him".
1. "Spiritual enlightenment" may take a person "beyond his ancestral worship". This may happen to Muslims, too, especially as they only believe in what their ancestors worshiped, told to their ancestors again by a man with very dubious morality, a man accepting the use lies, a man unable to prove even an atom of his claims - and a man who liked power.
2. The trouble with Islam is that Muhammad did not trust his religion enough to rely on words to convince people. If someone got enough "spiritual enlightened" to want to leave Islam, one should use all kinds of pressure and baits and even murder to make leaving difficult or impossible. (Muhammad himself often used both baits - money/bribes - and pressure, and Muhammad is the shining idol in Islam; "do like him").
126 6/82a: "(Abram/Abraham said:*) It is those who believe (in the Quran*) - - - that are (truly) in security - - -". See 6/81a above. As the Quran and its many errors are from no god, belief in that book neither has nor can have any security.
127 Here we include a small, but essential piece of information - essential for some of the claims regarding Abraham, and even more the claims concerning the claims about Abraham, Mecca, and the Kabah mosque. The dromedary was domesticated sometime between around 2ooo BC and 3500 BC - the exact time is not known (the very first proved case of domesticated dromedary/camel in the Middle East is from Qasr Ibrim in Lower Nubia (east Africa) around 740 BC) - and likely in the coastal area of South Arabia (Oman?). Abraham according to science lived - if he was a real person - around 2ooo-1800 BC (and far from South Arabia). #####But today - 27. Dec. 2012 - we discovered a small fact we have not been aware of - small, but essential and revealing in this case: THE DROMEARY - THE ARAB CAMEL - DID NOT COME INTO WIDE USE UNTIL AROUND 1OOO-900 BC (around the time of King Solomon)! And f.x. the first time camels are known to be used in battle, was Cyrus the Great who used camels against Croesus of Lydia in 547 BC, AND THEN TRANSPORT DROMEDARIES, NOT RIDING ONES WERE USED, INDICATING THAT EVEN THAT LATE RIDING ONES WERE FEW OR NOT EXISTING.. (Horses not used to camels were frightened by them, and this made problems for the cavalry of Croesus.) This means that as late as in 547 BC - some 1300 years after Abraham - riding camels were not widely enough used to be a factor in daily life (if they had been, riding dromedaries had been used by Cyrus instead). Camels are mentioned in the Books of Moses, too, but this is reckoned by science to be one of the proofs for that those books are written long after Moses.
This means that Abraham did not have camels, and definitely not riding camels. Which makes his claimed trip with his animals to the lonesome, waterless and empty desert valley where Mecca later grew up, physically impossible, his claimed building of the big Kabah hundreds of miles and more in kilometers from home, even more meaningless, as he could not go back and forth between his home and his temple - and his claimed visits there later as hopeless a Muslim claim as his first claimed trip.
THIS MEANS HE NEVER LEFT HAGAR AND ISHMAEL IN THAT VALLEY, THAT HE NEVER BUILT THE KABAH, AND THAT HE NEVER VISITED THE PLACE LATER,TOO. We have said the same before, but without the camel/dromedary Muhammad's claims about Abraham going to that dry desert valley to leave Hagar and Ishmael, and later to build the Kabah, and then to visit the place now and then, move from extremely improbable to physically impossible.
We also remind you that according to science "there is no indication for that Abraham ever visited Arabia".
Added 5. Apr. 2013 AD: Quoted from the Scandinavian newspaper Aftenposten published today, where professor emeritus (in physics) Redvald Skullerud says: "(It is claimed that Abraham*) used camels for transport some 1200 years before the camel was introduced as a transport animal in the area, when the Assyrians started trade with South Arabia". As you see it is an accepted scientific fact that even though the dromedary was domesticated and somewhat used in South Arabia, it was not introduced further north until a long time - 1ooo+ years - after Abraham, and then as a transport animal. To use it as a riding animal came even later. And without the camel, it would be impossible for Abraham to go back and forth between Canaan and the dry desert valley where Mecca later came - crossing rough and forbidding big deserts. Abraham's claimed connection to Mecca is an impossibility.
128 6/82b: "It is those who believe (in the Quran*) - - - that are (truly) in security - - -". Are they? Relying on a book full of mistakes, dictated by a man relying at least partly on untruth and dishonesty, and a man wanting riches for bribes, wanting power, and wanting women - - - and not being too mindful about how he got hold on any of those three. If Allah does not exist or if he exists, but is not correctly described in the Quran, the one thing they may be secure about is that they have no security. Yet worse: If Allah is made up, at least the ones of the Muslims living according to the harsher parts of the Quran, can be pretty sure not to end in a paradise - yes, this may be the case for all Muslims, if they believe in a non-existing god. (And at least the Quran with all its mistakes, etc. is from no god.)
129 6/82b: "It is those who believe (in the Quran*) - - - that are (truly) in security - - -". Are they? Relying on a book full of mistakes, dictated by a man relying at least partly on untruth and dishonesty, and a man wanting riches for bribes, wanting power, and wanting women - - - and not being too mindful about how he got hold on any of those three. If Allah does not exist or if he exists but is not correctly described in the Quran, the one thing they may be secure about is that they have no security. Yes worse: If Allah is made up, at least the ones of them living according to the harsher parts of the Quran can be pretty sure not to end in a paradise - yes, this may be the case for all Muslims, if they believe in a non-existing god. (And at least the Quran with all its mistakes, etc. is from no god.)
130 6/83b: "We (Allah*) rise whom We will - - -". The standard explanation for why some had a better life than others - even being non-Muslims: Allah in his unfathomable wisdom decides. But it also is an argument in the debate: Why an Arab prophet in a line where all documented prophets (or at least mentioned other places than in the Quran and the Hadiths) were Jews? (Hud etc. were not documented).
131 6/84c: "- - - We (Allah*) guided - - -". Allah or Yahweh? Muhammad claimed - as normal without any proof - that Allah just is another name for Yahweh (a claim proved wrong by the fact that the teachings fundamentally are too different). This is so often claimed in the Quran, that we comment on it just now and then.
132 6/87a: "- - - We (Allah*) guided (by means of Quran-like books*) - - -". But no twin of the Quran can give much guidance. And no twin - or copy older than 610 AD - of the Quran was ever found.
133 6/87b: "- - - a straight Way". The claimed road to Allah and to his paradise - see 10/9f below.
134 6/88a: "This (the Quran*) is the Guidance of Allah - - -". No god would send down a book with so much wrong like the Quran as guidance to his followers.
135 6/88c: "- - - He (Allah*) giveth guidance to whom He pleaseth, of His worshippers". Allah guides whom he pleases - Yahweh anyone who honestly asks for it and lives accordingly according to the Bible. No comments.
136 6/90d: "No reward do I ask of you - - -". This was one of Muhammad’s claims, and then it was good to have the earlier prophets say the same - indicating this was what real prophets said. And Muhammad took nothing? No, only 1/5 of everything stolen or robbed, included slaves - 100% if the victims gave in without fighting - (for comparison: Yahweh once and only once in the Bible (4. Mos. 31/28) demanded 1/500 - Allah via his representative (?) Muhammad demanded 1/5 = 100 times as much! And every time. The same god?), tax = 2.5% on average of everything you own (not earn, but own) each and every year (if you are not too poor) and 10% of everything dug out of the earth + plenty of women + total obedience and total power over you. No, Muhammad demanded "nothing" from his followers!(Reality incompatible with at least NT).
137 6/90e: "- - - this (the Quran*) is no less than a Message for the nations." There have been many messages to the nations through the times - some may have been true and some definitely not. And the Quran at least is from no god - too many facts, etc. are wrong. Is also this a wrong claim? It has got to be - as the Quran and all its errors, etc. are not a message from a god, it automatically also is not a message to the world from a god.
##138 6/91c: "Who then sent down the Book which Moses brought?" This is intended as a rhetoric question with only one possible answer: Allah.
One thing is that the Bible tells he got what he got not from Allah (neither Allah nor Muhammad is mentioned in the Bible). More essential just here is that Moses did not get any book(s) - both according to the Bible which says he got 2 stone tablets + vocal information (the laws, which he himself wrote down later), and according to science which tells that the Books of Moses were written long time after his death. This simply is a try to make up a "proof" for that Allah might have sent down the Quran, but as the god did not send down the Bible, this claim is a total miss. Any god had known this and not made such a flop. Then who made the Quran?
139 6/91e: “- - - ye (Jews*) conceal much (of its (the Torah’s = first part of the OT*) contents - - -)“. The old and never proved - but proved wrong - claim from Muhammad that the Bible is falsified - his only possible defense against the fact that the Bible says a lot of things differently from what he claimed it said. Science has ever so clearly - and Islam even more clearly - proved that this Islamic claim is wrong: Many really old documents (the numbers vary some, but some 300 copies or fragments of the Gospels, some 12ooo of other parts of the Bible + some 32ooo other manuscripts with quotations from the Bible) have shown that the texts of today are like the really old ones. Not even Islam has found a proved falsification!! Islam will have to bring real proofs for these repeated claims in the Quran and elsewhere – till now they only have produced claims; unfunded claims and loose words, and we are back to the old fact: If Islam had found one single hard fact showing that the Bible in any way was falsified, the world had been told quickly and with large letters. This because Islam does not have one single real proof for the existence of Allah, for Gabriel as a messenger to Muhammad, for Muhammad’s connection to a god or anything at all – everything rests only – only – on what Muhammad told, and the historical Muhammad (in contradiction to the Islamic glossy picture) was a man that would not have been accepted in any serious court as a reliable witness. A proof for falsification of the Bible would be an indication for that the Quran was correct at least on this one point, and thus very welcome. But in 1400 years no real proof has been found – only claims and words. Therefore a real proof for a falsified Bible had been big news in all Muslim media and for all Muslims debating religion forever after. No real proof has ever been produced by Islam or anyone else.
Also see 3/24, 5/13, 5/14, 5/15. Similar claims in 2/42 – 5/14 – 5/15. As for more about the differences between the Bible and the Quran, see our separate book "The Bible and the Quran" - Book E.
140 6/91g: "- - - then leave them (non-believers*) to plunge in vain discourse and trifling." But to leave them was what they had to do before they became strong enough to react strictly.
141 6/92a: "And this is a Book (the Quran*) which We (Allah*) have sent down". No omniscient god has sent down a book with so much wrong contents like the Quran.
142 6/92b: "- - - (the Quran is*) bringing blessings - - -". Can a book not from any god bring blessings in Muhammad's meaning of that word? No.
#143 6/92c: "(The Quran is*) “confirming (the revelations) which came before it (the Bible*)”. Wrong. There are so many fundamental differences, that the Quran is no confirmation of the Bible. See f.x. 2/89 and 3/3 for further explanation. Similar claims in 26/196 - 35/31 – 46/12 – 46/30. See also separate chapter about the Bible in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran".
144 6/92d: "- - - the Mother of Cities - - -". = Mecca (beware that the name also is written Makkah - and a few times also Bakkah, which is the oldest name, and seems to mean "narrow valley"). "The Mother of Cities" was a strange name for an after all young city compared to a number of others - f.x. Jerusalem - and a not too big one.
145 6/92h: "- - - they (Muslims*) are constant in guarding their Prayers". Why? - if it is true what the Quran claims many places, that Allah has predestined everything for you in accordance with his unchangeable Plan, which nothing and no-one can change, no prayer can change his predestinations - prayers to Allah thus are meaningless and a waste of time. (Muslims never - never - mention this).
146 6/93a: "Who can be more wicked than one who inventeth a lie against Allah, or saith, 'I have received inspiration', when he hath received none - - -." A very ironic verse if the Quran is made up - and it is from no god with all those mistakes, etc. But if Muhammad made it up, he had one big truth to rely on: He could lie and he could make up anything he wanted; there was no Allah to punish him.
147 6/93e: "- - - what Allah hath revealed (the Quran*) - - -". If Allah has revealed the Quran, he is no omniscient god - far too much is wrong.
148 6/93gb: "- - - this day (the Day of Doom*) shall ye (non-Muslims*) receive your reward - a penalty of shame - - -". If Allah exists and is a god like described in the Quran, and if the Quran in addition tells the full truth and only the truth about this. Also see 3/77b above.
149 6/94d: "- - - your (pet) fancies have left you in the lurch!" = Your other gods than Allah cannot help you. This may be true, but only on two conditions:
That Allah really exists and is a mighty god - correctly described in the Quran.
That no other god - f.x. Yahweh - exists.
And - - - is Allah fantasy? - at least no book of a quality like the Quran is from any god.
150 6/95b: "He (Allah*) causeth the living to issue from the dead - - -". This is an interesting claim, because there nowhere and at no time was proved that this is anything but cheap words; Allah never proved he could create life or resurrect the dead - many claims, no proofs - whereas if the Quran and/or the Bible tell the truth here, Yahweh has proved it many times. F.x. there are at least 8 resurrections + Jesus - 1. Kings 17/22, 2. Kings 4/34-35Mark 5/11 (+ Matt. 9/25, 8/55), John 11/44, Luke 7/15, Acts 9/40, Acts 20/10 + Jesus himself - of dead humans in NT (general confirmation in the Quran in 5/110i).
151 6/95c: "It is Allah who causeth (more or less everything*)"- included more or less all natural phenomena. Well, we point to some of the very many loose and never documented and thus invalid claims in the Quran (you meet even more when you debate with Muslims). There are many. Use your brain and your knowledge, and you will find plenty of them.
152 6/95e: “- - - then how are ye (non-Muslims*) deluded away from the truth? (the Quran*)”. With that many mistakes like in the Quran, it is quite likely it is the Muslims who are deluded - at least the Quran with all its errors is not from a god. And the reliance on lawful dishonesty as working tools indicates the same.
153 6/96a: "He (Allah*) is it that cleaveth the daybreak (from the dark) - - -". One more of the many places where Muhammad without proving anything takes a natural phenomenon and tells this is done by Allah. Totally without value as an indication or a proof for Allah unless it first is proved that it really is Allah who does this - for one thing it is only a claim, and for another any priest in any religion as cheaply can claim just the same on behalf of his god(s). Also see 11/7a below.
154 6/96b: “He (Allah*) makes the night for rest and tranquility - - -“. One more natural phenomenon that Muhammad claimed for his god (see 11/7a below) – and as always without a single proof. But the main thing just here is that night for sleep is not a prerequisite for life – on the contrary sleep at night (or at day for some animals) is an adaptation made by life to the fact that it is dark parts of the time. There is much life in total darkness - and a lot of life in perpetual daylight during summers in the far south and far north - any god had known.
155 6/96e: "- - - (Allah is*) the Omniscient". Not if he made the Quran - too much is wrong there. And not if he need to test people - even his followers.
##156 6/97a: “It is He (Allah*) Who maketh the stars (as beacons) for you - - -”, - and fastened to the lowest heaven, as we know from other places in the Quran (37/6-7, 41/12) - and also used as shooting stars to chase away bad spirits, according to the same book. That the stars are lights and weapons fastened to the lowest heavens - below the moon according to Hadiths and the astronomy of that time - destroys the credibility of Muhammad concerning this unproved statement about a natural phenomenon like the stars. Even worse: It is not just a statement; it is a sign for Allah - invalid like all the others. A small remark: Use of false proofs often is the hallmark of cheats and deceivers.
More essential just here: That the mighty and distant stars are made just for being beacons for tiny beings on a far-away minor planet, is unlikely to a very high power.
157 6/97d: "- - - for people who know." This is quite an ironic sentence, as the stars hardly were made for the purpose of being bacons for people on tiny Tellus (Earth) for an (astronomically) short time. But there is psychology behind the words: Who does not want to be reckoned among knowing, intelligent people - and who wants to admit he/she does not belong to those? Flattery often works. Flattery often is good and cheap psychology.
158 6/98a: “It is He (Allah*) Who hath produced you (man*) - - -". Often claimed, never proved - and as easily claimed about their god(s) for believers of other religions - - - free of charge for them as well as for Muhammad, as long as no proofs are required. Besides, if you take a look at how the Quran claims man was created (11/7a below), it does not leave the book much credibility.
159 6/98b: “It is He (Allah*) Who hath produced you (man*) from a single person (Adam*) - - -”. According to science it takes two to make a baby. But that aside: Where is the proof for that any god - not to mention Allah - is involved at all? One thing is that Adam never existed – man developed from earlier primates according to science. Another thing is that 1 person – even 1 pair of persons – would give too little DNA-variety to make man as a viable race. One more invalid sign.
160 6/98d: "We (Allah*) detail Our Signs - - -". There is no help in detailing them when everything is wrong and/or invalid.
BUT THE MOST CENTRAL POINT HERE IS JUST THIS THAT THE QURAN CONFIRMS THAT THINGS ACCORDING TO THE QURAN ARE EXPLAINED IN DETAIL = TO BE UNDERSTOOD LITERALLY. THIS DOCUMENTS THAT WHEN ISLAM AND MUSLIMS CLAIM THAT ERRORS, CONTRADICTIONS, ETC. AND OTHER BAD POINTS DO NOT MEAN WHAT THE TEXTS SAY, BUT ARE ALLEGORIES OR SOMETHING, SUCH CLAIMS AND EXPLAINING AWAY ARE WRONG. BESIDES: WHO CAN EXPLAIN BETTER THAN AN OMNISCIENT GOD?
161 6/98f: "- - - people who understand". But who is it who really understands? - the one who can be flattered into admitting or accepting Muhammad and his religion? - or he who really thinks thing over and find out what is right and what must be wrong? Also see 6/97d above.
162 6/99b: “It is He (Allah*) Who sendeth down rain from the skies - - - in these things there are Signs for people who believe”. Yes, but only if Islam proves it really is Allah who causes it, or as a belief if they believe blindly (taqlid) and has no education about how the water cycle works - without any traces from an involved god and absolutely no sign specific for Allah. Flattery added is cheap oil.
##163 6/99c: “- - - with it (rain) We (Allah*) produce vegetation of all kinds - - - in these things there are Signs for people who believe.” Well, vegetation grows no matter in the nature. We only have the words of one single man for that Allah is involved - a man who Islam itself admits is a highwayman, an extorter, an assassin of opponents, a mass murderer of helpless prisoners, a womanizer, a rapist, a breaker of his words (f.x. by killing 29 men - 1 got away - he had promised safe conduct (the peace delegation from Khaybar in 629 AD)), an enslaver "en masse", etc., aspiring for power - all in all a perfect and absolutely reliable witness according to himself and to Islam. And not to mention his slogan according to Ibn Ishaq: "War is betrayal" - betrayal and even breaking of one’s oaths was ok. Well, flattery feels good at least – especially for people naïve enough to believe everything they want to believe.
164 6/100a: "Jinns" - beings "borrowed" from pagan Arab religion and Arab fairy tales. They are strange creatures to tell about for universal god, as they mainly exist only in old Arab pagan religion and folklore (though they do exist also in old Jewish folklore and fairy tales, but not in their religion) Islam even today disputes what they really are, but most agree on that they are individuals of quite another kind than humans, but all the same not dissimilar. There exist Islamic laws for marriage between jinns and humans, so they have to be material beings. They are not demons, but another kind of invisible beings - ruled by Allah like men, and like man claimed in a not explainable way to all the same have free will. Most of them seem to end in Hell in the claimed next life.
165 6/100e: "- - - sons - - -". Simply Jesus. Muhammad could not accept that Jesus perhaps was son of the god. For one thing he thought it would spoil his claim about only one god. (Not correct - Christians believe in Jesus, but all the same only one god, Jesus' father Yahweh - there normally only is one king in a country, even if there may be a prince, too). For another: Muhammad wanted to be the greatest of prophets, which was impossible if Jesus is the son of the god.
166 6/100f: "Praise and glory be to Him (Allah*)!" See 1/1a above and see if you think he is worth this - - - if he exists and is correctly described in the Quran.
167 6/100g: "- - - (Allah is*) above what they (many non-Muslims*) attribute to Him!" Here is meant he is above having children - but who knows what a god likes? And when it comes to Yahweh and Jesus, Jesus many times called Yahweh his father, and called himself the son - and even the Quran tells that Jesus was reliable.
168 6/101a: “To him (Allah*) is due the primal origin (= creation*) of the heavens (plural and wrong*) - - -”. Proof? Claims are easy and cheap, and can be used by anybody - actually in most religions there is a creator. But in so serious a case as Heaven versus Hell in eternity, Islam demands blindness - blind belief and "taqlid". Yes, not even blind belief, but blind belief in a very unreliable and immoral man.
169 6/101c: “- - - how can he (Yahweh*) have a son when He hath no consort?” Wrong - and the Quran has itself given one possible solution: It declares that the god may just say “Be” and it is. May be Yahweh just said “Be a son”, and Jesus was.
##But there is another, but little known fact: In the very old Jewish religion there was a female god, too. They spoke about the god and his Amat (source among others “New Scientist”). In the very masculine society of the old Hebrews, the goddess was forgotten, though, - - - but it was possible for Yahweh to have a son “the natural way”. Gods would know this, but Muhammad not. Also see 17/111.
#######But why should gods make children the same way as humans and animals? Similar claim in 18/5 – 112/3.
170 6/101e: “- - - He (Allah*) hath full knowledge of all things.” Something is seriously wrong here: The Quran and all its mistakes prove that either Allah did not make the Quran, or he had far from knowledge of all things. Also see 2/233h above.
171 6/102a: "There is no god but He (Allah*) - - -". Well, not mentioning other claimed gods in different religions, there still remains Yahweh. The basics of Islam and the basics especially of NT are so different that they cannot be the same god, no matter what wishful thinking and not documented claims the Quran or Muslims put forth. (One possibility: The two may really be one god, if the god is strongly schizophrenic.) If there is one, but just one god, that means that only Allah or only Yahweh can exist. And Allah only is to be found in a book with hundreds and more mistakes, told by a man with very suspect moral and liking power, using Allah - real or made up - as his platform of power; Self-centered. Selfish? Well, of course Allah is to be found in the old pagan Arab religion, then obeying(?) the name al-Lah - "the god". Whereas there after all is a chance for that Yahweh exists - there f.x. were so many witnesses to Jesus' miracles, death and resurrection, that one may wonder.
172 6/102b: "- - - (Allah is*) the Creator of all things - - -". See 6/101e above and 21/56c below. Also contradicted by the Bible, which claims Yahweh was the creator. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.
173 6/104a: “Now have (the Quran*) come - - - from your Lord (Allah*) - - -”. No omnipotent god ever created a book with so many mistakes, so many contradictions, so much wrong logic, and honestly so low quality literature (in spite of all the glorious words from religious Muslims), not to mention kept it as a revered "Mother Book" in his own Heaven, like the Quran itself claims at least 2 places. See 13/39, 43/4, 85/21-22 below.
####174 6/104c: "Now have (the Quran*) come - - - from your (Muslim's) Lord (Allah*) - - - I (Muhammad*) am not here to watch over your (people's) doings". THIS IS A SERIOUS ONE: Here it is Muhammad who is speaking - - - in a book presumably made eons ago in Heaven!!! - an impossibility and a clear contradiction of the Islamic claim that it is a copy of the Mother Book in the Heaven. (There are some 8 such cases in the Quran, and at least one case where angels are speaking - see 6/114a below.) Clear proof(s) for that the Quran is not from Heaven - at least not all of it. This lines up with facts like:
There are lots and lots and lots and lots of mistakes in the book.
There are lots and lots of invalid “signs” and “proofs” in the book.
There are lots and lots of invalid logic in the book.
There are lots and lots and lots of invalid statements and claims in the book.
There are lots and lots of contradictions in the book.
There are lots and lots of unclear language in the book.
There are lots and lots of grammatical and linguistic errors in the book.
There are lots and lots of non-Arab words in a book claiming to be in pure Arab.</0l>
PLUS A HISTORICAL FACT: ISLAM AND ITS MUSLIMS ARE N E V E R MENTIOND IN OLD HISTORY. THERE IS NOWHERE IN THE WORLD EVER FOUND EVEN ONE SINGLE TRACE FROM A BOOK LIKE THE QURAN, A RELIGION LIKE ISLAM, OR A GOD LIKE ALLAH OLDER THAN 610 AD, WHEN MUHAMMAD STARTED HIS MISSION. (This in spite of that according to the Quran a similar book has been sent down to 124ooo (according to Hadiths) prophets/messengers all over the world through the times + copies made from these. This is many more than there ever existed of the Bible, and from the Bible there are some 12ooo copies (of parts of the Bible - some 300 copies of Gospels) or scraps from the Bible + some 32ooo with quotes from or references to Biblical texts, all older than 610 AD. But as said from the Quran nothing.) NOT IN LITERATURE, NOT IN ARCHEOLOGY, NOT IN ART (this even though art in Islam often is to draw/paint quotes from the Quran in high quality script), NOT IN HISTORY. NOTHING. NOWHERE.
175 6/104d: "- - - if any will see (the claimed truth in the Quran's teaching*) it will be for (the good of) his own soul - - -". Islam is "to one’s own good" only if the Quran is from a god - which it is not with all those errors - and tells the full truth and only the truth.
176 6/104e: "- - - if any will be blind, it will be to his own (harm) - - -". Here it is symptomatic that it is the Quran which demands blindness - blind belief (taqlid) - whereas skepticism towards that book needs open eyes and brain.
177 6/104f: “- - - I (Muhammad*) am not (here) to watch over your doings.” One year later Muhammad started to watch everybody’s’ doing, too – and little by little strictly so.
178 6/105a: "Thus do We (Allah*) explain the (claimed*) Signs by various (symbols) - - -". You will find similar claims here and there in the Quran, but the Quran never explains anything about its claimed "signs" and "proofs", it only makes claims about them.
BUT THE MOST CENTRAL POINT HERE IS JUST THIS THAT THE QURAN CONFIRMS THAT THINGS ACCORDING TO THE QURAN ARE EXPLAINED = TO BE UNDERSTOOD LITERALLY. THIS DOCUMENTS THAT WHEN ISLAM AND MUSLIMS CLAIM THAT ERRORS, CONTRADICTIONS, ETC. AND OTHER BAD POINTS DO NOT MEAN WHAT THE TEXTS SAY, BUT ARE ALLEGORIES OR SOMETHING, SUCH CLAIMS AND EXPLAINING AWAY ARE WRONG. BESIDES: WHO CAN EXPLAIN BETTER THAN AN OMNISCIENT GOD?
179 6/105c: "- - - We (Allah*) may make the matter clear to those who know". Those who know are completely aware of that it is not possible to make things clear by means of a book full of mistakes, contradictions, invalid logic, etc. And some of them are too intelligent to be moved by cheap flattery.
180 6/106a: "Follow what thou (Muhammad*) are taught (the Quran*) by inspiration from thy Lord (Allah*) - - -". No god did teach the Quran - too much is wrong. We also mention that the word "inspiration" never is used in such connections in the Bible. Yahweh used direct talk, visions, or dreams according to the Bible (4. Mos. 12/6-8), but never inspiration for transferring messages, etc.
##181 6/106b: "- - - there is no god but He (Allah*) - - -". Often claimed in Islam, but never proved.
There actually is no natural law prohibiting more than one god. (The Quran tries to claim this one or a few places, but uses invalid arguments and invalid logic). Or prohibiting even no god.
But if we for the sake of simplicity say that polytheism is out, there still remains the problem with Yahweh - the god of Jews and Christians.
Yahweh is an old god - he (his religion) can be traced by science all the way back through history and far into prehistory. If the books are reliable on this point, there is no doubt about his existence and his power - this according to both the Bible and the Quran.
There is not one single trace of the Muslim version of Allah - or of his claimed earlier prophets (except the Biblical ones) - older than 610 AD, not within ANY kind of science: Archeology, architecture, art, literature, history - not even in legends or in fairy tales.
Allah only - only - exists in a book full of mistakes, and dictated by a man believing in al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie), etc., and wanting power and money for bribes and women - - - and according to Islamic sources with few qualms about how he got hold of it (including using a new religion as his platform of power).
To make matter worse: That book is so full of mistakes, contradictions, etc. and except for polished language of such an amateur quality, that no god was involved in it - to claim the opposite is slander and an insult and heresy against the god one blames the work on.
There is nowhere even the smallest trace of a mosque older than 610 AD (Kabah in Mecca may partly be older, but that was a pagan temple taken over by Muhammad).
There nowhere exists one single proof for the existence of Allah or for Muhammad’s connection to a god
There are hundreds and more of mistakes, contradictions, unclear language, etc. and even some obvious lies in the Quran - 110% proofs for that it is not from a god.
Muhammad tried to claim - and with considerable success - that Yahweh was the same god as Allah, and that Allah thus was an old and mighty god.
But the fundamental differences between the two teachings and also between the codes of moral and ethics of the two, and other things, are so many and so deep, that this claim simply is not true (one possible exception: If the god is deeply schizophrenic).
Muhammad tried to explain the differences by claiming - as always without a proof - that the Bible is falsified. Modern science has long since proved that this is not true (some 44ooo relevant manuscripts and each and every one of them without any trace of falsification + Biblical texts today are the same as in the very oldest ones.). Islam has proved it even stronger: If there had existed one single real falsification, the world had been told about it several times a day.
Then there is the question of the Bible, which both in OT (f.x. several places in Isaiah 44 and 45) and many places in NT declare that there is no god but Yahweh - in spite of Muhammad's claims a very different god. And the Quran admits that Yahweh exists, even though it wrongly mixes him up with Allah.
And not to forget: If Allah all the same exists, there remains the question: What is he? He is no god - no god delivers a book of a quality like the Quran. But he may be something from the dark forces dressed up to cheat Muhammad. Muhammad would not have a chance to see the difference. (Personally, though, we doubt that even a devil would make such a sorry book like the Quran - he had to know all the errors would be discovered sooner or later, and he would lose credibility. But there is the chance that may be there was a god prohibiting him from using anything better - - - and he also might have taken into account the standard human religious blindness - the inability many humans have to see what they do not wish to see.
##########Also remember "taqlid" - the uncritical acceptance of what the fathers claim must be true, "because so our father again had heard from his father and others, and then it must be true". (This - "taqlid" - is the main reason why most Muslims today believe, because very few have sat down and read the Quran with a critical eye and checked if it really is true.)
Decide for yourself: What are the chances for that Allah exists and in case is a lone god? - and what in case are the chances for that he just is another name for Yahweh?
182 6/106c: "- - - by inspiration - - -". Convenient claim: Impossible to check - and easy to change or add or falsify. But also: Inspiration from where? No god - too much is wrong in the book. Hardly a devil - too much is wrong in the book, and he knew he would be looked through sooner or later (though possible if the god made the mistakes a condition for permitting the Devil to make the book - to make it possible for man to see the trap). An illness - like TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy)? A helper - or some helpers? Muhammad himself? Make your own guess.
183 6/107a: “If it had not been Allah’s Plan, they (non-Muslims*) would not have taken false gods - - -” There is a certain class of people who find out where people wants to go, then walks in front of them, telling everyone that they are leading the people. You often find them in politics and in organizations. They make us think of this verse. If only Allah willed - - -! In addition: HOW - H O W!! - can an omniscient and omnipotent god presumed to be a good and benevolent god, damn humans to Hell for taking other gods, when they did so because of his own Plan???! This also is incompatible with the Bible.
184 6/107b: "- - - Allah's Plan - - -". This is the reason for and the origin of all predestination: Allah's Plan which nobody and nothing can change even a nanometer. There is no such plan mentioned in the Bible.
185 6/108a: "Reveille not ye (Muhammad/Muslims*) those whom they call upon besides Allah, lest they out of spite reveille Allah in their ignorance." This you could forget when Islam became strong enough to punish instead of being polite. This verse is abrogated – made invalid - and contradicted by at least these verses: 2/191, 2/193, 3/38, 3/85, 3/148, 4/90, 5/33, 5/72, 8/12, 8/38, 8/38-39 (the warning), 8/39, 8/60, 9/3, 9/5, 9/14, 9/23, 9/29, 9/33, 9/73, 9/123, 25/36, 25/52, 33/61, 33/73, 35/36, 47/4, 66/9. This includes many bloody threats, but also verses advising or permitting political, social, economical, etc. compulsion (with the sword in the background if you protest) – we mention a few here: 3/28, 3/85, 3/148, 4/81, 5/72, 5/73, 9/23, 14/7, 15/3, 33/73, 35/36. They are all quoted under 2/256 in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran". (At least 28 abrogations).
####186 6/108d: “Thus have We (Allah*) made alluring to each people its own doings”.
Comment A6/92 (A6/93 in the 2008 English edition): “Lit., ‘thus goodly have we made….', etc. implying that it is in the nature of man to regard the belief which have been implanted in him from babyhood, and which he now shares with his social environment, as the only true and possible ones – whit the result that a polemic against those beliefs often tends to provoke a hostile psychological reaction.” This is said as an explanation why Islam sometimes meets a negative reaction. But the book skips the fact that this also goes for Muslims: If they are strongly indoctrinated, they may react strongly to arguments and facts they do not like – and without thinking over – or being mentally able to think over – even true facts. This is likely to be the explanation for why most Muslims are able to be blind to all the mistakes and proofs for that things are very wrong in the Quran and thus with Muhammad and in Islam.
187 6/108e: “Thus have We (Allah*) made alluring to each people its own doings”. ######This sentence should be extremely thought-provoking also to Muslims. All the mistakes, etc., in the Quran proves 100% and more that the book is not from any god. And large parts of the religion and its moral code may - may - indicate that dark forces are involved (whereas all the wrong knowledge one believed was correct science in Arabia at that time + all the tales "borrowed" from Muhammad's surroundings, strongly indicate that the Quran is made by one or more humans in Arabia at the time of Muhammad - with Muhammad as the prime suspect.)
188 6/109b: "They (non-Muslims contemporary to Muhammad*) swear their strongest oaths by Allah, that if a (special) Sign came to them, by it they would believe". This is entirely in accordance with human nature - produce miracles and most people will believe. But Muhammad was unable to produce any miracle, and instead had to use fast-talk to "explain" away the request and the clear logical fact.
189 6/109e: "Certainly (all) Signs are in the power of Allah." A big claim. But a big claim anyone can make on behalf of his god(s) as long as there only are words - words are that cheap. An invalid claim and an invalid proof. Also see 14/19d below.
###190 6/109i: “- - - what will make you (Muslims) realize that (even) if (special) Signs came, they (non-Muslims*) will not believe?” Wrong. If there were real proofs of a god - miracles - at least a good number of people would believe - that is a psychological fact (look f.x. at the Pharaoh’s magicians and at the results of Jesus' miracles). The sentence really is fast-talk to “explain” away why Allah/Muhammad was unable to produce unmistakable proofs for Allah. Worse: An intelligent man like Muhammad knew this argument is a lie - and all the same he used it frequently. This simply is one of the places in the Quran where Muhammad knew he was lying.
191 6/110a: "We (Allah*) (too) shall turn to (confusion) their hearts and their ("unbelievers'*) eyes - - -". Jesus and Yahweh were searching for "the lost sheep". Muhammad and Allah make their way back to belief difficult or impossible. The same god? No.
###192 6/111a: “Even if We (Allah*) did send unto them (non-Muslims*) angels, and the dead did speak unto them, and We gathered together all things before their very eyes, they are not the ones to believe, unless it is Allah’s plan”. This may be understood in two ways – both quite fast talk:
Another and strengthened variety of no. 7/120a and others - with Muhammad lying in the Quran.
Some of Muhammad’s audience questioned the obviously wrong logic and psychology in that clear proofs would not impress anybody, and needed a reason why not – and got the all-encompassing and ultimate answer to all difficult or unanswerable questions: It is Allah’s will - sometimes the fastest of all fast-talk.
#########This is one of the places in the Quran where Muhammad knew he was lying - produce some real miracles, and at least some will believe, and this even more so as in old times with naive, uneducated, superstitious people, not as skeptical towards such things as people nowadays - it was easier to make people believe.
193 6/111b: “- - - they (non-Muslims*) are not the ones to believe, unless it is Allah’s Plan”. This is even worse than 6/107a above - Allah simply has made it impossible for non-Muslims to become Muslims, if it does not fit him. But still he condemns them to Hell!!! Predestination at its worst - perhaps except when luring people to their death or mutilation in battle.
No comment could possibly explain our point of view or distaste.
194 6/111c: “But most of them (non-Muslims*) ignore the (truth (the Quran*)).” With that many mistakes, that much wrong logic, etc., that book at best is only partly the truth.
#####195 6/112a: "- - - by way of deception". Muhammad Ali here has an interesting comment: "- - - the Prophet (Muhammad*) was asked: 'Are there Satans from among men?' - and he replied, 'Yes, and they are more evil than Satans from among the invisible beings - - -".##### When one knows about all the inhumanities, immoral parts of the moral code, etc. Muhammad introduced, and when one knows all he demanded and did, one may start thinking from such a piece of information.
196 6/112b: "- - - (non-Muslims*) inspiring each other with flowery discourses by way of deception." This is a nice piece of pep-talk, explaining-away, and inducement for his followers not to believe what non-Muslims told them. But is it true?
And what kind of words are many of the words and discourses in the Quran?
197 6/112d: "If they (Muslims'*) Lord (Allah*) had so planned, they (non-Muslims*) would not have done it (believed in other gods*) - - -". What kind of god is planning so as to send millions and even billions of humans - and jinns - to Hell?!!
198 6/112e: “- - - so (Muhammad*) leave them (opponents*) and their inventions (gods*) alone.” This was in 621 AD when Muhammad still was military weak. When he gained more strength, this verse was abrogated – made invalid - and contradicted by at least these verses: 2/191, 2/193, 3/38, 3/85, 3/148, 4/90, 5/33, 5/72, 8/12, 8/38, 8/38-39 (the warning), 8/39, 8/60, 9/3, 9/5, 9/14, 9/23, 9/29, 9/33, 9/73, 9/123, 25/36, 25/52, 33/61, 33/73, 35/36, 47/4, 66/9. This includes many bloody threats, but also verses advising or permitting political, social, economical, etc. compulsion (with the sword in the background if you protest) – we mention a few here: 3/28, 3/85, 3/148, 4/81, 5/72, 5/73, 9/23, 14/7, 15/3, 33/73, 35/36. They are all quoted under 2/256 in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran". (At least 28 abrogations).
199 6/113a: "To such (deceit) (see the verse above*) let the hearts of those (non-Muslims*) incline who have no faith in the Hereafter: let them delight in it, and let them earn from it what they may". This verse is one piece of pep-talk.
200 6/113d: "- - - those who incline (to deceit) - - -". An ironic name and point of view, as the Quran/Islam is the only one of the big religions which in many cases accepts dishonesty - al-Taqiyya, Kitman, Hilah, deceit, broken words/oaths - as working tools.
201 6/114b: "Shall I (Muhammad*) seek for judge another than Allah?" It might be an idea - if he judges according to the sharia laws, he sometimes is quite unjust. And parts of his moral code is even worse.
Verses like this are one of the reasons why Islam only can accept the Quran's (partly im)moral code - and its (sometimes as immoral) laws.
202 6/114c: “- - - He (Allah*) it is Who hath sent unto you (Muslims*) the Book (the Quran*)”. Wrong. Taken into account the many mistakes, etc. that at least needs proofs. No god delivers a book of a quality like the Quran with all its errors, etc.
##########203 6/114ca: "- - - He (Allah*) it is Who hath sent unto you (Muslims*) the Book (the Quran*) explained in detail - - -". If Allah has explained everything in detail, who can then explain it better - or explain that the clumsy Allah meant something different from what he said? But that is one of Islam's and Muslims' standard "explanations" for "explaining" away errors and difficult points in the Quran: As what the text says is wrong, impossible, horrible, or something, Allah cannot have meant what he said, but must have told a parable, allegory, metaphor, or something, without indicating so, "but we intelligent humans can explain it better and tell you what Allah 'really' must have meant!!".
THE MOST CENTRAL POINT HERE IS JUST THIS THAT THE QURAN CONFIRMS THAT THINGS ACCORDING TO THE QURAN ARE EXPLAINED IN DETAIL = TO BE UNDERSTOOD LITERALLY. THIS DOCUMENTS THAT WHEN ISLAM AND MUSLIMS CLAIM THAT ERRORS, CONTRADICTIONS, ETC. AND OTHER BAD POINTS DO NOT MEAN WHAT THE TEXTS SAY, BUT ARE ALLEGORIES OR SOMETHING, SUCH CLAIMS AND EXPLAINING AWAY ARE WRONG. BESIDES: WHO CAN EXPLAIN BETTER THAN AN OMNISCIENT GOD?
204 6/114f: “- - - it (the Quran*) hath been sent down from thy (Muslims’*) Lord (Allah) - - -“. No omniscient god ever sent down a book with that many mistakes, contradictions, logical blunders, unclear language, etc., not to mention kept is as a revered "mother book" in his own Heaven (13/39, 43/4, 85/21-22), like the Quran also claims – as usual without any documentation or proof.
205 6/114h: (A6/99 – in 2008 English edition A6/101): “They know full well, to whom We (Allah*) have sent the Book (in this case: The Bible or the Quran?), that it hath been sent down from thy Lord in truth.” Well, is it here the Bible or the Quran that is sent down in truth? Who knows? Clear language in the Quran?
Another point is that the Bible is not sent down by a god. It is written by men, but - according to the two religions the writes were inspired (but not in the Quran's meaning of that word; dictated word by word) by Yahweh. And according to reality: The quality of the Quran only can be explained if it was written by amateur humans and then the linguistics polished afterwards by more clever persons - ######but a nightmare is as bad even if the bed sheets are from silk. Well, there is one more possible explanation: That the book is from the dark forces - but even a devil would not deliver a quality like in the Quran, as he had to know all the errors, contradictions, etc. had to be discovered sooner or later, and the book lose its credibility. The only possibility in case is if he was forced to deliver that sorry a product - f.x. by a god.
206 6/114i: "Never be then of those who doubt". - not even when there is reason for doubt! - yes, not even when the Quran is proved multiple wrong.
207 6/115c: “The words (the Quran*) of thy Lord (Allah*) doth find its fulfillment in truth”. Unclear. Some Muslims claim this is a reference to the wrong claim that Muhammad is foretold in the Bible, but the Quran here does not indicate such a reference. Besides he is nowhere foretold in the Bible. (Islam claims they find him - they have to, because if not there is such a serious mistake and lie in the Quran, that this one alone clearly makes the Quran and Islam totally invalid), but only after cherry-picking of words, bending of context and facts, + use of wrong "facts".)
208 6/115d: "- - - in justice - - -". Not unless some parts of sharia law and large parts of the Quran's moral code is omitted.
209 6/115f: “- - - none can change His (Allah's*) Words “. Perhaps no Muslim can, because that means that something is wrong in the foundation and fundamentals of Islam - they cannot afford to change any word in the Quran for that reason. But f.x. science can show if some - a lot - of the words in the Quran are wrong. Which they are. Also there are changes in the Quran – the differences in the old Qurans, the different “ways of reading” (a camouflaged way to talk about what in reality are varieties of the texts), the abrogated verses and the change in the religion around/after 622 AD – by whom and why? Well, whoever the maker of the Quran is, he is contradicting himself, as he clearly changes it himself when something forces him to – try and fail? Or change his mind about more blood and injustice from 622 AD on? – or because of other problems or things he has learnt?
2/106: “None of our revelations do We (Allah*) abrogate or cause to be forgotten, But We substitute something better or similar”. Words can be changed.
16/101: “When We (Allah*) substitute one revelation for another – and Allah knows best what He reveals - - -“. No doubt that he can change his own words, at least – when he did not do things right at once. (These two verses – 2/106 and 16/101 – are the main fundamentals under Islam’s rules for abrogation – making verses invalid when there are contradictions. See separate chapter about abrogation).
One more confirmation for that nobody and nothing can change Allah's predestined Plan - "His word". What then about f.x. free will for man, forgiving, prayers, good/bad deeds, pilgrimage, etc? - they all are illusions if Allah predestines everything and according to an unchangeable Plan.
And there is another aspect to this sentence: The Quran is claimed to be Allah's words. This then means that nothing in the Quran can ever be changed - harsh demands, harsh rules, treatment of women - free and captive - the discrimination, the dishonesty, the suppression, the slander on non-Muslims, the war and blood. Nothing.
210 6/116b: "- - - they (disbelievers*) do nothing but lie". Wrong: At least some of them point to real errors, etc. in the Quran and hence in Islam.
211 6/116d: "- - - they (disbelievers*) do nothing but lie". The irony once more: The only one of the large religions which accepts - even sometimes advices - the use of lies and dishonesty (al-Taqiyya, Kitman, Hilah, deceit, betrayal, broken words/oaths), is accusing others of lying - - - and as normal for the Quran without proofs behind the claim. A lie? At least it is a lie that they do nothing but lie, something even Muhammad knew. Slander and a lie.
212 6/118a: "So eat of (meats) on which Allah's name hath been pronounced, if ye (Muslims*) have faith in His Signs". One of the many abrupt changes of topic which is one of the reasons why the Quran is not good literature.
213 6/119c: "Thy Lord (Allah*) knows best those who transgress". Just a reminder: Watch your steps or Allah will punish you. But also see 2/233h above.
214 6/121b: "But the Satans ever inspire their friends (non-Muslims*) to contend with you (Muslim*); if ye were to obey them, ye would indeed be pagans". An interesting sentence when one remembers that one of the 3 possible makers of a book of a quality like the Quran, is the dark forces (the other two are a sick human brain (TLE?) and a cold human brain - no god was ever involved in a book as full of errors and worse as the Quran).
215 6/122a: "Can he who was dead, to whom We (Allah*) gave life - - -". This interesting claim again: Allah never proved his power over life or death - or over anything else, or even his existence. Yahweh proved it many times if either the Quran or the Bible speaks the truth on this point. This makes one think.
216 6/122c: "- - - a light (the Quran*) whereby he (a man*) can walk amongst men - - -". There is little light in a dark book (see the surahs from Medina) which on top of all is full of mistaken facts and other mistakes, etc.
####217 6/122d: "- - - to those without Faith their own deeds seem pleasing". #######The same goes for Muslims, and here it is very serious, as much of what they are permitted or expected to do, is sin against the constitution of all inter-human ethical and moral codes, and against what a really benevolent and good god would have ordered: "Do onto others what you want others do onto you".
218 6/123: "- - - they (bad non-Muslims*) only plot against their own souls - - -". In propaganda and in slander an opponent always is bad. As for souls, that is a bit vague something in the Quran - vague likely because Muhammad really did not need it, as he claimed the resurrection for the next life is in body (not in soul like in the Bible - one more strong proof for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god, and Jesus and Muhammad not in the same religion.) As the Quran's Paradise mainly offers bodily pleasures, people have to be resurrected bodily.
219 6/124b: "We (non-Muslims*) shall not believe until we receive one (proof*) (exactly) like those received by Allah's messengers". Wrong - the only thing they asked for, was a clear proof for Allah and his power, which Muhammad never was able to deliver. Here Muhammad has twisted the truth a little - lawful in Islam (this is a Kitman - a lawful half-truth) - to be able to explain it away and to be able to make his opponents look bad.
Just this not a proved lie from Muhammad in the Quran, as one or a few can have said so. But a very likely one, especially as the Quran says every leader said the same, which is highly unlikely.)
###220 6/125a: "Those whom Allah (in his Plan) willet to guide - - -". One of the fundamental differences between Yahweh and Allah: Allah predestines your life from even before the beginning, included whether you are to end in Heaven or Hell (according to Hadiths this is decided when the fetus is 4 months old). Yahweh gives man freedom of choice, but accepts anyone - not only the ones "he willeth" - to his Paradise who honestly wants and qualifies. Yahweh and Allah the same god? Plainly and simply no.
221 6/125b: "- - - (in His (Allah's*) Plan - - -". The predestination again. Allah has everything planned, and nothing and nobody can change anything (actually why pray to Allah for help in problems, when nothing can be changed?). And what about f.x. free will for man?
222 6/125d: "- - - those (humans*) He (Allah*) willet to leave straying - - -". One of the really serious differences between NT and the Quran: Yahweh wills none to stray, according to the Bible (Luke 15/8-10, 15/11-31, Matt. 18/12-14, Matt. 20/8-13 to mention some). The same god? Not a chance.
223 6/127a: "For them will be A Home of Peace - - -". If Allah exists and is a top god, if the Quran tells the full truth and only the truth about this - and if the Islamic paradise exists.
224 6/127b: "- - - A Home of Peace - - -". Islam's Paradise - see 10/9f below.
It is a bit remarkable that even though the best Muslim is the warrior, its paradise has no use for warriors - it is claimed to be a place of peace. ####Is warring not the best all the same?
225 6/128b: "- - - Jinns - - -". Supernatural beings only to be found in and around Arabia - an Arabism. They are not from the Bible. See 4/13d above.
226 6/128ba: "- - - much (toll) did ye (Jinns*) take of men". All the same they are not mentioned in the Bible. As Israel was and is near the Arabs, jinns do exist in the periphery of old Jewish folklore (though spelled differently - djinnie if we remember correctly), but not in the Bible - not relevant to the religion, only to folklore and fairy tales. (Like trolls, etc. in the West: Found in folklore and fairy tales, but not in the religion.) Of some essence for Allah, totally non-interesting for Yahweh. Yahweh and Allah the same god?
227 6/128bb: “- - - we (humans*) reached our term (predestined day of death*), which Thou (Allah) didst appoint for us.” See 6/2d+e above.
###228 6/128c: "- - - you (sinners and non-Muslims*) will dwell therein (Hell*) for ever, except as Allah willeth." This may - may - be a very essential verse in the Quran. Together with in 6/128c, 11/107b, 43/74b-c, 78/23, (plus some Hadiths) this verse make many of the foremost Muslim scholars believe that perhaps Hell is not really forever - for eons, but perhaps not forever. Heaven perhaps yes (11/108)?, Hell perhaps no. Also see 51/13a below.
229 6/130a: “O ye assembly of Jinns and men! Came there not unto you messengers from amongst you - - -?” Human messengers to man, Jinn messengers to Jinns. But it is contradicted by:
12/109: “Nor did We (Allah*) send before thee (Muhammad*) (as Messengers) any but men, whom We did inspire – (men) living in human habitations.” No Jinn messengers. Well, in this verse it is possible to explain it away with that it perhaps only is spoken about human habitats. That is not possible in the next two and the last one, because they are without (possible) reservations.
16/43: “And before thee (Muhammad*) also the Messengers we sent were but men - - -“.
21/7: “Before thee (Muhammad), also, the messengers we sent were but men - - .”
22/75: “Allah chooses Messengers from angles and from men - - -.” But not from Jinns.
25/20: “And the messengers whom We (Allah*) sent before thee (Muhammad) were all men - - -.”
Well, 6/130 says that at least not all were men. A nice little contradiction.
230 6/131a: "- - - (Allah*) would not destroy for their wrongdoing men's habitations whilest their occupants were unwarned". How many times have f.x. natural catastrophes happened - also in Muslim areas - without any warnings?
231 6/131b: "- - - their wrongdoing - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. F.x. it is wrongdoing not to go to war to steal and enslave and kill when a leader has a jihad ("holy" war) declared, whereas f.x. to rape any captive female, even children, is "lawful and good" (if the female is not pregnant) - and the fact that this formally has to be done in the name of the god, makes both the deeds, the religion and the god even more distasteful, repulsive - and immoral.
232 6/132a: "To all (Muslims in the Quran's paradise*) are degrees (or ranks) according to their deeds - - -". It is many places in the Quran made clear that the Islamic paradise is a class society. (But it is nowhere explained how you can get all your family around you in the paradise, it they do not all merit the same level or class).
You do not find a society divided in classes in the Bible's Paradise - one of the strong proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god (if they had been, their Paradise had been one and the same.)
233 6/133b: “- - - if it were His Will, He could destroy you - - -”. Well, he has not done so - able or not. One of the many places in the Quran where Muhammad boasts of what Allah is able to do - - - if he willed (but he never willed).
234 6/134b: "- - - nor can you frustrate it (Allah's predestination*) (in the least bit)". Nobody and nothing can change Allah's predestination and Plan - nothing and nobody at all. Then where is free will of man, and where is the rationale in praying, forgiving, bad or good deeds, etc.?
235 6/135a: “- - - soon will ye (people*) know who it is whose end will be (best) in the Hereafter.” Muslims will fare best of course. One of the many pep-talks in the Quran.
236 6/135b: (A116 – in 2008 edition 118): “- - - soon will ye (people*) know who it is whose end will be (best) in the Hereafter.” Literal meaning: “- - - to whom the (happy) end of the abode (“dar”) shall belong”. This is the meaning if you guess that the word “dar” refers to “dar al-akhirah” = “the abode in the life to come”. But it only is said “dar”, and then it can as well refer to “dar ad-dunya” = “the abode in this life” - - - and in that case the sentence from the Quran indicates that you will have a rich and good future in this world. Pick your choice or guess. Allah is using clear and distinct words? At least 2 meanings. And these variants as usual also are in the Arab text, as the relevant word there has more than one meaning.
#237 6/136a: “Out of what Allah hath produced in abundance in tilth and in cattle - - -”. One more a loose statement about what Allah does, just hanging in the air for want of proof or documentation. As they have no proofs of any central claim, it is not strange that Islam glorifies blind belief without proofs or questions -"taqlid" - or tells that it is primitive not to be able to see from the texts in the Quran that it is from a god, in spite of all mistakes and invalid “signs” and “proofs” and lose statements - hallmarks of cheats and deceivers and manipulators of men - and as primitive to ask for proofs. Even though what really is primitive is to believe anything and everything without proofs - primitive and naïve. (In all other aspects of life, blind belief is the sure way to be cheated).
238 6/137d: “If Allah had willed (he could have “saved” the pagans*)”. But Muhammad was able to “save” (make them Muslims) only some of them - and far from always by words. There still are some billions pagans and other non-Muslims in the world.
What does it tell about Allah that he did not "save" them? - or about Muhammad and bluffs if Allah was unable to save them?
239 6/137e: "- - - but leave alone them (polytheists*) and their inventions." That was in peaceful 621 AD. It soon changed: This verse is abrogated – made invalid - and contradicted by at least these verses: 2/191, 2/193, 3/38, 3/85, 3/148, 4/90, 5/33, 5/72, 8/12, 8/38, 8/38-39 (the warning), 8/39, 8/60, 9/3, 9/5, 9/14, 9/23, 9/29, 9/33, 9/73, 9/123, 25/36, 25/52, 33/61, 33/73, 35/36, 47/4, 66/9. This includes many bloody threats, but also verses advising or permitting political, social, economical, etc. compulsion (with the sword in the background if you protest) – we mention a few here: 3/28, 3/85, 3/148, 4/81, 5/72, 5/73, 9/23, 14/7, 15/3, 33/73, 35/36. They are all quoted under 2/256 in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran. (At least 28 abrogations).
240 6/139e: "- - - He (Allah*) is full of wisdom and knowledge." Not if the Quran represents his wisdom and knowledge - too much in that book is wrong.
241 6/140b: "- - - inventing (lies) against Allah". Religious rules (in other religions) not in accordance with Muhammad's teachings, are "lies invented against Allah". It here is somewhat ironic that many customs and rules, even the most central ones, in Islam simply were taken over by Muhammad from the earlier Pagan Arab religion. And also that Islam is the only one of the big religions which accepts - sometimes even advices - the use of dishonesty as working tools.
242 6/140c: "They (non-Muslims*) have indeed gone astray - - -". But who are horribly astray if the Quran is a made up book? - and it is not from any god with that many errors, etc.
243 6/141b: “It is He (Allah’) Who produceth - - - tilth with produce of all kinds - - -”. Profs? Documents? Like so often the Quran takes natural phenomena and claim Allah has made it (see 11/7a below) - just as cheaply as any other religion can use just the same cheap words and cheap, unproved claims for their god(s). Cheats and deceivers often use such methods. Was Muhammad a cheat and deceiver?
244 6/142a: "- - - what Allah hath provided for you - - -". Everything you have, is provided for you by Allah - and as normal for Muhammad; no proof - - - and an easy claim for any religion.
245 6/142b: "- - - and follow not in the footsteps of Satan - - -". Here the meaning is: To make restrictions on what Allah has permitted, is to follow Satan (f.x. restrictions on raping captive girls and women during and after a war claimed to be for Allah, but which may give riches and power in this world - also for the leaders?).
But it is a curiosa here that just Satan is one of the theories for who is the real maker of the Quran, as it is clear that a book of that quality is from no god. Some of the moral and judicial rules in the Quran and in Islam may back up that theory.
246 6/144a: "But who doth more wrong than one who invents a lie against Allah, to lead astray men without knowledge?" A most ironic sentence if the Quran is a made up book (and at least it is from no god - no god makes that many mistakes, contradictions, cases of invalid logic, etc.). But if Muhammad himself made up the religion, at least he knew he was safe - he in case knew there was no Allah to punish him.
247 6/144c: "For Allah guideth not people who do wrong". He guides absolutely no-one unless he exists - a strong probability as the Quran with all its errors, etc. is not from a god.
248 6/145a: “I (Muhammad*) find not in the Message received by me - - -". Was it really received? - and in case from whom? As gods are impossible with all those mistakes, there are few alternatives: Dark forces/devil, illness like TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy), or a cold, scheming human mind. Or a combination of 2 or 3 of these.
249 6/145b: “I (Muhammad*) find not in the Message received by me by inspiration - - -". A method easy to claim - and easy to falsify. And a method never mentioned in the Bible.
250 6/147a: "If they accuse thee (Muhammad*) of falsehood, say: 'Your Lord (Allah*) is full of Mercy all-embracing; but from people in guilt never will His wrath be turned back.'" Muhammad never was able to prove even a comma about Allah or about his own connection to a god - even though it should have been easy for an omnipotent god to do so. He had to resort to fast words and explaining everything away. Here he uses it as treats for waylaying the debate.
251 6/147c: "- - - from people of guilt never will His (Allah's*) wrath be turned back". See 3/77b above.
252 6/148g: "If so, produce it before us (Muhammad*)". In clear text: 'If you non-Muslims have knowledge opposing the Quran, prove it'. Muslims demand proofs from everybody else, but never prove any central claims they put forth themselves. This in spite of that it is the one who claims something who has the burden of proving his claim.
But points like this prove that Muhammad meant proofs were essential - and all the same he never was able to prove even one of his central religious claims. This tells something.
253 6/148h: "Ye (non-Muslims*) follow nothing but conjecture - - -". This may be right or wrong, but a relevant question here is: As the Quran with all its errors, etc. is not from a god - what is then Islam following?
254 6/148i: "- - - ye (non-Muslims*) do nothing but lie". This is a demonstration of 6/148c above: Loose claim. But this also is a part of some ones - and not only Muslims' - method of debate: Scolding, slander, etc. Just this accusation in the Quran is a bit ironic, though: The only of the reasonably big religions where dishonesty not only is an accepted, but advised part of religious debates, is Islam (but NB: Only if there is a reason for lying, or if it is necessary to win your point - - - but all the same: How reliable is a religion which relies on lies? - al Taqiyya (the lawful lie), Kitman (the lawful half-truth), even broken words/promises/oaths. (2/225, 5/89, 16/91, 66/2)).
####255 6/149a: (A6/141 – in 2008 edition 6/143): “With Allah is the argument that reaches home (= the decisive arguments = it is Allah who decides*) - - - ". Predestination again - because Allah long since has decided everything according to his Plan. And man's claimed free will?
“The Message of the Quran” has this comment:
“In other words, the real relationship between Allah’s knowledge of the future (and, therefore, the ineluctably of what is to happen in the future) on one side, and man’s free will, on the other – two propositions which, on the face of it, seem to contradict one another – is beyond man’s comprehension; but since both are postulated by Allah, both must be true".
Simply the ultimate pinnacle of clear speech. And the ultimate victory not for blind faith, but for blind faith based on naivety and intellectual unconsciousness.
IT ALSO IS THE ULTIMATE DEFEAT FOR THE CLAIM THAT IT IS POSSIBLE TO COMBINE THE CLAIM THAT MAN HAS FREE WILL WITH THE CLAIM THAT ALLAH DECIDES EVERY DETAIL OF YOUR LIFE - this only is mysticism or superstition.
Predestination contra man’s free will actually is a version of “the Time Travel Paradox”, which is long since proved unsolvable. (In short: The king is murdered. A FTL-message (FTL = Faster Than Light) is sent to a star-ship off Sirius. FTL according to Einstein moves backwards in time, and arrives earlier than it was sent. The ship sends a warning to the king, and as it uses FTL, the warning arrives before the murder and the king avoids the murderer. Because of that no message is sent to the ship, which sends no warning to the king - and the king is murdered. Then an FTL message is sent to the ship - - - -".) There is no way Allah can even be fully clairvoyant, not to mention decide everything on beforehand, and man at the same time have free will. (More in the chapter about predestination.)
Another proof for that there are things in the non-material parts of life which are impossible even for an omnipotent and omniscient god: Add one mathematical 1 to another mathematical 1. The only possible answer even for a god is the mathematical 2. There simply are things not possible even for gods. And to combine full predestination with even a tiny part of free will for man, is one of them - the laws of chaos inexorably prohibit it. A god may direct this and that to happen, but full predestination or full precognition is not possible if it is possible for man to change his mind, even if he can change it only now and then.
Yet another point: It is a proved fact in science (logic) that if two claims are mutually excluding each other, maximum one of them may be true.
PREDESTINATION ALSO MAKES F.X. PRAYERS MEANINGLESS: IF ALLAH HAS PREDESTINED EVERYTHING, PRAYERS CAN CHANGE EXACTLY NOTHING. (Predestined help - or reward or punishment - for predestined deeds just is theater.)
This point perhaps is the pinnacle in all Islam's ability to flee even from facts they see themselves are wrong , its inability to face hard facts even when they see them, and its ability and willingness to be blind and to overlook even the strongest facts and proofs for that things are very wrong in the Quran and thus with Muhammad and in Islam. Central claims which cannot be true, are accepted in pure superstition.
"Our fathers told us and our neighbors and mullahs tell us this is true, and then it must be true" (taqlid).
"We built our lives on this belief - it has to be true because it is too difficult for me to face the alternative. ####This no matter what the price there is to pay if the Quran is not from a god, but there all the same is a next life, ruled by some god.
You meet this lack of moral backbone and the ability in Islam and in Muslims to overlook or explain away even the strongest facts, at every point in the Quran where there are mistakes, contradictions or other proofs for that something is wrong in the Quran, and thus with Muhammad and with his religion - proofs they are unable to face, for that Islam like told in the Quran is not a religion, but a superstition.
Total predestination for Allah and even a smithereens of free will for man are two claims which are mutually prohibiting/excluding each other. Maximum one of them can be true. The claim is logical and scientific nonsense.
256 6/149d: "- - - if it had been His Will He could indeed have guided you”. A guide using the Quran with all its errors as a guide-book is not much of a guide.
257 6/150a: "Bring forward your witnesses - - -". See 6/148e above.
258 6/150e: "- - - Our (Allah's*) Signs as falsehoods - - -". The claimed signs mostly in themselves are ok - they normally are real, existing natural phenomena. What are falsehoods is to treat them as signs - read "proofs" - for a god, without first proving that it is that god who causes those phenomena. Without such proofs first, the claim is totally without logic and value. And who is it who has to rely on bluffs, fast-talk and made up claims? - the cheater, the deceiver, the swindler.
259 6/150g: "- - - their Guardian-Lord (Allah*) - - -". Only if he exists, if he is a god, and if the Quran in addition has described him correctly.
###260 6/151a: “Come, I (Muhammad*) will rehearse what Allah hath (really) prohibited you from - - - (f.x.*) be good to your parents”. This very obviously is wrong and a bit of a contradiction compared to other places in the Quran – Muhammad very obviously meant exactly the opposite; that you were ordered to be god to your parents. An omniscient god would not make such a mistake. Who made the Quran? PS: This is one of the verses Muslim scholars (but not always imams or laymen) admits must be wrong - - - and omniscient gods do not make mistakes.
Practically all Muslim scholars as mentioned agree that here the text is wrong – there is said there are 19 such accepted mistakes in the Quran, www.1000mistakes.com lists 15 - it is absolutely contrary to what the Quran says about this all other places. Which give you an unbeatable proof against any Muslim boasting that the book being without any mistakes at all. (In addition there are the cases where Muhammad lies in the Quran.) A proof and a fact sanctioned by Islam! (And besides: If here is one mistake, how many more are there?) Just remember: 6/151 (6 in Scandinavian = sex, and 151 has sex in both ends (1 + 5 = 6, and 5 + 1 = 6). Easy to remember.
And besides: If here is a mistake and if Islam admits 15 - or perhaps more (we have heard 19) - how many more are there in reality?
261 6/151d: "Come not nigh to shameful deeds - - -". Quite an ironic sentence when you remember the shameful deeds the Quran advices or accepts - sex with children (at least from 9 years), rape, slavery, lying, stealing (in connection with raids and wars), suppression, murder, just to mention some. Also see 7/28b below.
###262 6/151f: "- - - take not life's - - - except by the way of justice and law - - -". This ought to be a thought provoker for terrorists and even more self-murder terrorists: With indiscriminate killing most of the victims will be innocent persons, or at least persons who would not be given a death penalty by the law in a proper court. By killing them you sin against this verse in the Quran.
And another fact: Islam states that the murderer has to carry the victims' loads of sins, because they did not get the chance to repent and ask Allah to be forgiven. Add this to the fact that a self-murder terrorist is not killed in the cause of Allah, but kills himself, something which is forbidden in Islam - how big is the chance for that such a person will end in Paradise? Not to mention: If Islam is a made up religion - - - and no book of a quality like the Quran is from any god.
As for forgiving from Allah: See 2/187d above.
263 6/151g: "- - - wisdom". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it mostly is connected to knowledge about its religion, Islam.
264 6/152e: "- - - thus doth He (Allah*) command you - - -". As the Quran and all its errors are not from a god, the relevant question is: Allah or someone/something else?
265 6/153c: "- - - His (Allah's*) (great) Path - - -". If he exists. If he is the god behind the Quran (and there is no god behind a book that full of errors, etc.). And if the Quran in addition tells the full truth and only the truth about this.
266 6/153e: "- - - thus doth He (Allah*) command you, that you may be righteous". Is it righteous ("just and good") to steal or rob in the name of Allah? - is it righteous ("just and good") to enslave in the name of Allah? - is it righteous ("just and good") to extort in the name of Allah? - is it righteous ("just and good") to attack peaceful people in the name of Allah? - is it righteous ("just and good") to rape captive or slave children and women in the name of Allah? - is it righteous ("just and good") to rape captive or slave children in the name of Allah? - is it righteous to punish a raped woman because she cannot produce 4 men - men - who have seen the very act, to prove it was a rape? (one of the most disgusting and unjust laws in this complete world)! - is it righteous ("just and good") to lie, or cheat or break your word or your oath (al-Taqiyya, Kitman, "break your oath if that gives a better result" (Muhammad))? - is it righteous ("just and good") to murder opponents because they do not agree with you? - is it righteous ("just and good") to kill persons because they do not believe in Islam or wants to leave it - a religion based on a book full of mistakes, contradictions, wrong logic, etc., dictated by a man believing in al-Taqiyya, in Kitman, and in breaking his words and his oats even - is it "lawful and good"? The horrible truth is that many Muslims will answer "yes" to some or all of these questions. These rules of moral and justice - or rather immoral and injustice - have been so strongly imprinted on them since they were babies, that they are unable to see the horror and the places of inhuman injustice in their code of so-called moral - and moral philosophy which could have mended the terrible cultural rules does not exist in Islam - and the as disgusting injustice in some of their laws. They really believe those are the best of rules, and that everybody not living by them are second rate "Untermench" - In parts of Pakistan imams/mullahs have debated if non-Muslims have half the value or less compared to Muslims. No Comments. But also see 6/108d above and 23/24b (A23/11) and 26/74c below.
May be worse as this is from high up: Wall Street Journal, 9. April 2002. Compensation - also named "blood money" - for killing or in other ways causing a person's death in Saudi Arabia, was as follows:
100.ooo riyals if the victim is a Muslim man.
50.ooo riyals if the victim is a Muslim woman.
50.ooo riyals if the victim is a Christian man.
25.ooo riyals if the victim is a Christian woman.
6.666 riyals if the victim is a Hindu man.
3.333 riyals if the victim is a Hindu woman.
No comment necessary. A Muslim man is f.x. worth 33 Hindu women. Still no comment necessary - except that this is completely in line with the Quran and with the judicial and moral codes in Muslim culture.
Non-Muslims and especially "Pagans": Declare you are Muslim before you are killed. This will give your children more money to survive on.
267 6/154b: "- - - do right - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
#268 6/154c: “- - - is explaining all things in detail”. It is explaining far from all things, and definitely not in details - among other facts there are not enough laws to run a society. Laws and rules had to be added.
BUT THE MOST CENTRAL POINT HERE IS THAT THE QURAN CONFIRMS THAT ALL THINGS ACCORDING TO THE QURAN ARE EXPLAINED IN DETAIL = TO BE UNDERSTOOD LITERALLY. THIS DOCUMENTS THAT WHEN ISLAM AND MUSLIMS CLAIM THAT ERRORS, CONTRADICTIONS, ETC. AND OTHER BAD POINTS DO NOT MEAN WHAT THE TEXTS SAY, BUT ARE ALLEGORIES OR SOMETHING, SUCH CLAIMS AND EXPLAINING AWAY ARE WRONG. BESIDES: WHO CAN EXPLAIN BETTER THAN AN OMNISCIENT GOD?
269 6/155b: “- - - a Book (the Quran*) which we (Allah*) have revealed as a blessing”. A book with many mistakes and invalid and even wrong proofs is no blessing - and not from any god - and is a book with many mistakes and much incitement to hate and war and suppression of other people and of women, a blessing? No.
270 6/155d: "- - - receive mercy - - -". Please read the surahs from Medina - omit the glossy words and read the reality; the demands, the orders, the imposed rules, the deeds. Is Allah able to show mercy? - - - if he at all exists.
271 6/157d: “- - - a Clear (Sign) - - -“. There are no clear signs/proofs neither for Allah nor for Muhammad’s connection to a god in the Quran or anywhere else. See 2/39b and 2/99 above.
272 6/157h: "- - - who could do more wrong than one who rejected Allah's signs - - -". A pretty ironic sentence if the Quran is a made up book - and with all those errors it at least is not from any god.
273 6/158b: “- - - Signs of thy Lord (Allah*) - - -.” It tells something that Muhammad used and used and used "signs" - read; claimed "proofs" - any god would know were logically invalid. (Actually any human knowing something about logical deduction knows the same - conclusions based on not verified claims only, are invalid - except maximum as a hypothesis.) Also see 2/39b above.
274 6/159a: "And for those who divide their religion and break up into sects, thou (Muhammad*) hast no part in them in the least: their affair is with Allah - - -." That this was an affair only for Allah is very strongly contradicted by reality - through the Islamic history many a sect has been persecuted, some even drowned in blood (according to informed sources there have been some 3ooo Muslim sects through the time - some still exist). Also contradicted and abrogated by the Quran itself: This verse is abrogated – made invalid - and contradicted by at least these verses: 2/191, 2/193, 3/38, 3/85, 3/148, 4/90, 5/33, 5/72, 8/12, 8/38, 8/38-39 (the warning), 8/39, 8/60, 9/3, 9/5, 9/14, 9/23, 9/29, 9/33, 9/73, 9/123, 25/36, 25/52, 33/61, 33/73, 35/36, 47/4, 66/9. This includes many bloody threats, but also verses advising or permitting political, social, economical, etc. compulsion (with the sword in the background if you protest) – we mention a few here: 3/28, 3/85, 3/148, 4/81, 5/72, 5/73, 9/23, 14/7, 15/3, 33/73, 35/36. They are all quoted under 2/256 in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran". (At least 28 abrogations).
275 6/159b: "He (Allah*) will in the end tell them (the not good Muslims and others*) the truth of all that they did". But if Allah knows the truth about everything, why then does he have to test people, f.x. by sending them to war for Muhammad and later leaders? Also see 2/233h above.
276 6/160b: "He that doeth good, shall have ten times as much to his credit - - -." This is not to be found in the Bible - it is such an essential point that it should have been, if Yahweh was just another name for Allah, like the Quran claims - as normal without the slightest documentation.
277 6/161b: "Verily, my (a Muslim's/Muhammad's*) Lord (Allah*) hath guided me to a Way that is straight - - -". May be, but not by means of a book with so many errors, and at too many points immoral moral code like the Quran. Also see 16/107 below.
278 6/161d: "- - - a Way that is straight - - -". One of the differences between the Quran and the Bible. In the Quran it is the easy road which leads to paradise, in the Bible the difficult one ("the narrow road"). The Quran here smells of populism. Populism normally is popular, especially among the little thinking part of a population. Besides this is one of the many proofs for that Yahweh and Allah were not the same god - and Jesus and Muhammad not in the same religion.
279 6/161e: "- - - (Islam is*) a religion of right - - -." No comment except: Study the moral code of the Quran and laugh at this statement, but weep at the reality.
280 6/161g: "- - - the Path of Abraham (Islam*) - - -". One thing is that the Bible disagrees and talks about a connection to Yahweh, not to Allah. Another thing is that the Quran never documents any connection to Abraham - there only are claims. And a third is that nearly nothing of the central claims in the Quran agrees with what the only other source about Abraham, the Bible, tells.
281 6/161j: "- - - he (Abraham*) (certainly) joined not gods with Allah". Very naturally if the Bible is correct when it tells that Abraham believed in Yahweh and was not involved with Allah at all.
282 6/162b: "- - - Allah, the Cherisher of the Worlds - - -". This and similar are often claimed, but never proved - - - and often claimed on behalf of many claimed gods.
283 6/163a: “No partner hath He (Allah*): - - -”. If the Quran here means Allah, it may be correct. If it is indicating Yahweh, words of Jesus may easily be understood like the Quran here is wrong (not to use stronger words), and that Jesus is some kind of junior partner. Also see 6/101d above.
##284 6/163b: “- - - I (Muhammad*) am the first of those who bow to His (Allah’s*) will.“ How is that possible if the Quran is correct and lots of people had been Muslims before him, and bowed to Allah? (Though in reality it is highly likely he was right: That he was the first one ever). Similar claim f.x. in 6/14. Some Muslims explains that it is meant the first in a special land or something, but that is not what the Quran says.
285 6/164b: "- - - no bearer of burdens can bear the burden of another". Well, at least concerning this life , the Bible says: "Carry each other’s burdens".
286 6/164c: "Your goal in the end is towards Allah". Only if he exists and is correctly described in the Quran
287 6/165a: "It is He (Allah*) who hath made you (Muslims*) (His) agents - - -". One more never proved claim. And one which among other things depends on if he really exists, if he really is a central god - or a god at all - and on if the Quran tells the full truth and only the truth about this.
288 6/165d: "- - - thy (people's/Muslims'*) Lord (Allah*) is quick in punishment - - -". See 3/77b above.
1531 + 288 = 1819 remarks.
Not formed like questions for proofs, but what needs to be proved normally easy to see all the same. And: References you do not find here, go to "1000+ Comments on the Quran".
