Allah in the Quran, Chapter 95

SURAH 6 IS HARD ON ALLAH AND THE QURAN
Some points of reality:
##001 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 Moses got what he got not from Allah (neither Allah nor Muhammad is mentioned in the Bible), but from Yahweh. 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 which he himself wrote down afterwards, 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 - it was written by humans, but is said to be inspired by Yahweh. this claim is a total miss. Any god had known this and not made such a flop. Then who made the Quran?
Actually surah 6 is a bit hard upon the wishful thinking of Muslims.
Finally: Always when you read the Quran, Hadiths, and other Islamic books, you should remember that Muhammad accepted the use of and himself used dishonesty in many forms in words and deeds. Even if the names are younger, it was he who institutionalized dishonesty like al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie), Kitman (the lawful half-truth), Hilah (the lawful pretending/circumventing), the use of deceit ("war is deceit" - and "everything" is war), betrayal (f.x. the peace delegation from Khaybar), and even the disuse of oaths (2/225, 5/89, 16/91, 66/2 - and the star case 3/54 (if Allah could cheat, cheating is ok)), which also includes the disuse of words and promises, as they are weaker than oaths = when oaths can be disused, so can words and promises. On top of this it is very clear from the Quran and all other central Islamic books, that Muhammad also liked respect and power and women. Combine these lusts with his acceptance of and personal use of dishonesty - even the gravest kinds: How reliable are that kind of men normally? - and how true and reliable are their never proved claims and tales?

002 ###In 6/50 Muhammad confirms he cannot see what is hidden - f.x. the future - killing all the claimed miracles claimed made by Muhammad concerning seeing what was hidden (= foretelling/prophesies), and indirectly also documenting he was no prophet - not knowing the future = unable to make prophesies, and a person unable to make prophesies 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 5. Mos. 18/21 + 6/50 in the Quran indirectly, but clearly tells Muhammad was not even a prophet - he only "borrowed that impressive and imposing title. (And among many others 18/2 tells Moses was speaking about Jewish "brothers" - Islam has cherry-picked and twisted 18/15 and 18/18 in an al-Taqiyya.)
##########003 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! 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 power - and this includes the power of prophesying - strengthens the proof in 6/50a for that he was no real prophet.
004 ###Then 6/91c: "Who then sent down the Book which Moses brought?" This is intended as a rhetoric question with only one possible answer: The god. But as Moses did not get any book(s) both according to the Bible and according to science (science tells that the "Books of Moses" were written at least 5 centuries after Moses), this try to make up a "proof" for that Allah might have sent down the Quran, is a total miss. Any god had known this and not made such a flop. Then who made the Quran?
005 ###In connection to 6/106 (6/106b) Allah's very existence is doubted.
006 ###In connection to 6/108 "The Message of the Quran" (comment 6/93) explains: "- - - it is in the nature of man to regard the beliefs which have been implanted in him from childhood, and which he now shares with his social environment, as the only true and possible ones" - which explains in details why Muslims believe in spite of all facts proving that something is seriously wrong with the religion.
007 ###In connection to 6/149 (comment 6/141 in the same book) Islam has to admit that the claim that Allah decides everything - predestination - is impossible to combine with the claimed free will for man (and without free will it is morally wrong to punish man for sins) - but "it all the same must be true, because Allah says so (in the Quran*)", the ultimate defeat for brain against blind belief.
008 ###And in 6/151 may be the most well-known of the mistakes in the Quran accepted by Islam to be a mistake: "You are prohibited from - - - being good to your parents" (well, may be ###"Mary, sister of Aaron" is even more well-known, but that one is frequently tried explained away).
