Allah in the Quran, Chapter 8

 

WHY NOT BELIEVE IN ALLAH?

001 Why not? Simply because it is highly unlikely he exists. All the errors, contradictions, etc. in the Quran prove that the book is not from any god - no god makes fact mistakes, other errors, contradictions, invalid statements and claims, etc. wholesale and "en gross". The ethical and moral codes in the book prove that it in addition in case is from no good and benevolent god. The first makes strong at least empirical proofs for that Allah does not exist - and this is strengthened by the facts that he originally just was a pagan god Muhammad dressed up, but never proved a comma about. Hundreds of claims, but not one single valid proof about any of the central claims. The second proves as strongly that if he all the same exists, the glorifying words in the Quran do not describe him correctly. The ethical and moral code, his deeds, his demands, his rules, may give a correct description, but not the nice words. And the ethical and moral code, his deeds, his demands, his rules, etc., are of such categories that they may indicate that the theory that the Quran is from the dark forces, may - may - be correct (even though we personally do not believe so - there are too many mistakes, etc. in the Quran even for the dark forces).

An introduction (verse 57/8a):

002 "What cause have ye (non-Muslims*) why ye should not believe in Allah?". Well, to mention a few of the reasons:

  1. Not one single claim is proved in Islam - not even the existence of the claimed god, the former pagan god al-Lah/al-Ilah/Il (and may be Hubal).
  2. All the mistaken facts and other mistakes prove 110% and more that the Quran is not from any god - no omniscient god makes such or so many mistakes (which is why Muslims cannot afford to see the mistakes no matter how obvious they are).
  3. All the contradictions have the same 110% effect.

  4. All the invalid logic also has the same 110% effect - so only from these 3 points you have 330% proofs that the Quran is not from a god.
  5. All the invalid claims indicate - or even prove - the same.
  6. The language many places are unclear or with 2 or more possible ways of understanding a point. No god would use unclear language in his holy book.
  7. A lot of points in the book were difficult or impossible to understand for people not from that region - Arabisms. No universal god would make his holy book in ways not possible for people to understand unless they were known in a small region of Earth. Humans might make such mistakes, but not an omniscient god.
  8. All the tales in the Quran are from in and around Arabia, and only tales known there at the time of Muhammad. Nothing from the rest of the world. Not natural for an omniscient god for the entire world.
  9. All the wrong facts in the Quran are in accordance with what one believed were correct knowledge and correct science in Arabia around the time of Muhammad. Very unlike an omniscient god.
  10. The horrible and immoral parts of the Quran's moral code may indicate that the real maker of the Quran belongs to some dark forces. Who wants to believe in a religion perhaps made up by f.x. a devil impersonating Gabriel?
  11. The immoral and unethical parts of the ethical and the moral codes, mean a not good and benevolent god in case.
  12. The parts of sharia which are unjust and/or immoral gives the same thoughts as the sentence just above.
  13. The Quran contains not a few cases of boasting or bluffs. Who needs to use bluffs? - the cheat and deceiver, not an omnipotent god.
  14. The Quran contains some places where Muhammad is lying (see separate chapter). How true is a religion which needs lies? And who needs to use lies? - the cheat and deceiver.
  15. All the points in the Quran where it is used wrong science - science believed in at the time of Muhammad - indicates very clearly that the Quran is made by humans living at the time of Muhammad - perhaps by Muhammad himself.
  16. Islam is a war religion - the claim "the religion of peace" is an al-Taqiyya (a lawful lie) - and who believes a "good and benevolent" god runs a religion of dishonesty, stealing, apartheid, rape, suppression, and war?
  17. The Quran is entirely based on the words of a man with a very doubtful moral - lying, breaking even his oaths, deceiving, stealing, raping, and a lot more - and a man wanting power and riches (for "gifts" to buy more followers and to keep some of the ones he had - clear from central Islamic books) - and not to mention women (one knows the name of 36 women he had more or less regular sex with - see the chapters about Muhammad in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran" - our Book A - those are the ones one knows by name).

Well, these at least were a few reasons why not to believe in Allah and in Muhammad's religion - at least not until something is proved. And not until the proofs for that things are seriously wrong in the Quran, and thus in Islam, are disproved.

############################### Another - and serious - point is that to "explain" that the Quran means something different from what it really says, is to corrupt it.

003 Also: What is sure, is that no god ever made a holy book as full of wrong facts, other errors, contradictions, unclear language, etc. like the Quran. ###############Besides: Which one of the 20-30 known versions accepted by Islam of the Quran (see 15/9c) - if any (and there were even more versions through the times) - is in case the correct one?

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?

*004 2/7a: "Allah hath set a seal on their (non-Muslims'*) hearts - - -". The Quran many places like here makes it clear that when someone does not believe in Islam, the reason is that Allah makes belief impossible for them. Not a very benevolent and goodhearted god - and very dissimilar from Yahweh/God; f.x. "the lost sheep" in NT (Luke 15/4-7).

005 2/10e: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) are false (to themselves)". This was one of Muhammad’s claimed explanations why non-Muslims did not believe him. The real reason frequently was that they saw something was wrong in Muhammad's new religion.

006 2/86a: "These are the people who buy the life of this world at the price of the Hereafter - - -". This is one of Muhammad’s standard claims: People who will not believe in him, do so because they are bad or stupid. It also explains why many of them lived a better life than many Muslims - they had "bought" a good life on Earth on the expense of the next life. So be comforted - they will be punished, and you win in the next life.

The reality was that many saw that things were seriously wrong in Muhammad's preaching.

007 2/88c: "Nay, Allah’s curse is on them (non-Muslims, here likely the Jews of Medina*) for their blasphemy: little do they believe". The Quran here claims that the reason why they did not believe in Muhammad, was that Allah had cursed them - psychologically a much better story for Muhammad to tell his followers, than the plain reality: The Jews understood from their knowledge of the old scriptures, how wrong Muhammad's teachings and his claim that Yahweh and Allah were the same god were. As 'everyone' know, Muhammad claimed that the discrepancies between the Torah, etc. and the Quran were because the Jews and Christians had falsified the books/Bible - his only possible way out if he wanted to save his religion and his own position. Science and even more so Islam later have proved this claim wrong by being unable to prove one single falsification among literally tens of thousands of relevant old manuscripts (the numbers vary some, but some 300 Gospels or fragments of Gospels, some 13ooo scriptures or fragments from the Bible, and some 32ooo other manuscripts with quotes from the Bible, all older than 610 AD when Muhammad started his new religion, and there thus was a reason for falsifying Muhammad and his teachings out from the Bible - Islam has been unable to prove any point at all in them falsified. Like so often with Islam, there have been - and are - claims, but only claims. (If there had been real proofs, the world had been told about it frequently and in big letters.)

For OT there is another direct proof for that it is not falsified: Both the Bible and the Quran tell that Jesus used the old Jewish scriptures/OT. A prophet like Jesus had not used falsified scriptures. OT thus in case cannot have been falsified until after Jesus died in 33 AD. But in the Qumran scrolls there are copies of the complete or parts of nearly all scriptures in OT. These scrolls are from ca. 150 - 50 BC = identical to the ones Jesus used some 80+ years later. AND THE TEXTS IN THE QUMRAN SCROLLS ARE IDENTICAL TO THE TEXTS IN OT TODAY, with the exception of minor differences normal for hand copied texts. A 100% proof for that OT is not falsified - - - and Muhammad is not there (in the Bible)..

008 2/165b: "- - - take (for worship) others beside Allah - - -". Wrong. Non-Muslims do not take other god(s) beside of Allah. One simply does not believe in him and take another/others INSTEAD of him - there is quite a difference between "beside" and "instead of". Also see 25/18a below.

009 3/76b: "- - - those who sell the faith they owe to Allah - - -". Muhammad many places in the Quran - like here - claims that non-Muslims do not believe in Islam because they have "sold" the religion for a better life in this world - a much more pleasing "explanation" for him and his followers than the pure truth: The non-Muslims simply believed or even saw that things were seriously wrong with the Quran and with Muhammad's new religion.

010 3/77a: "- - - those who sell the faith they owe Allah - - - for a small price - - -". Expressions like this mainly - and often - are used for Jews and Christians. What is meant is that those bad persons have falsified the Bible to have a richer life on Earth. Instead of admitting that they really did not believe in Muhammad's new religion from honest reasons - and everything we know about history proves it literally was a new religion and that Muhammad's claims about older roots are fairy tales. It was psychologically much wiser for him if he wanted to promote his religion - and his basis of power - to claim they did it from base motifs, and were morally degenerated and despicable persons. You will find him telling and impressing this claim on his followers several places in the Quran. Blind belief made people believe anything and without using their brains. It still does. Also see 2/75b, 2/130a, and 3/24 above.

011 3/78f: "- - - and well they (Jews and Christians*) know it (that the Bible is falsified*)!" This is propaganda - and propaganda only fit for non-thinking and/or non-educated persons. It is psychologically impossible to believe in a god and a holy book you know are fakes. And very many of the Jews proved with the loss of their lives that they really believed in their scriptures.

This surah is from 625 AD. At this time Muhammad knew that at least the great majority - perhaps all - the Jews and the few Christians in and around Yatrib/Medina believed in their old books and not in his tales. He may still to a large or small degree believe he had a contact with a god (if he had a mental decease - f.x. TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy) - this is fully possible), but he knew the Jews and the Christians did not believe him, but believed in their old scriptures. He thus knew that they did not "know the Bible is falsified" - one does not believe in something one knows is falsified. Muhammad here thus used a lie - propaganda often is lies. And this late Muhammad knew enough about the Bible, etc. and knew that his claim was a lie.

012 3/86b: “How shall Allah guide those (Jews, Christians*) who reject faith after they accepted it and bore witness that the Messenger (Muhammad*) was true and that Clear Signs had come unto them?” This refers to Muhammad's claim that one or a few Jews and Christians had admitted (maybe true, maybe not) that he was a prophet, and here he claims it then was unjust and not understandable that not also all the others admitted the same. It is very clear even from Islamic literature that the reason why they did not believe in Muhammad, was that they simply did not believe in his new religion, and stuck to the Bible/their old scriptures.

013 3/113g: "- - - they (Jews and Christians*) prostrate themselves in adoration". Wrong. None of "the People of the Book" adore Allah. They simply do not believe he exists, and definitely not as a god. (####Though many do not know the Quran better than they believe Muslims are speaking the truth when Islam claims Yahweh and Allah are the same god - but that Muhammad/the Quran has twisted the god's teaching).

014 3/179g: ""But He (Allah*) chooses of His Messengers (for the purpose) whom He pleases". Muhammad claimed the Jews did not believe in him because he was not a Jew (the real reason was that they knew their own old scriptures, and saw how much in Muhammad's teaching and what he claimed the old god said and wanted, were wrong compared to those scriptures. This is an argument against the Jews, but meant for his followers - the Jews knew he was not speaking the truth here. Worse: The last years - when Muhammad had got more knowledge about at least the OT, he had to see the difference himself and had to know something was wrong. But he blamed everything on falsification of the Bible even if he at this time (in all surahs younger than 624 AD, because by then he had got some knowledge to the real Jewish scriptures and Bible - this one is from 625 AD, and f.x. surah 5 from 632 AD) had to know he was lying - his only way out if he wanted to save his religion and his platform of power - - - and his "face".

----------------------------------------------------------------------

015 4/27b: "- - - those who follow their lusts - - -". = The non-Muslims. It was essential for Muhammad to impress on his followers that the ones who did not believe him, did so because they were morally inferior persons. (The real reason was that many of them saw that Muhammad's claim that Allah and Yahweh were the same god and Islam was this god's religion, could not be true - the religions and the gods were too different).

016 4/44c: "They (Jews and Christians*) traffic in error - - -". Muhammad's standard claim: These people did not believe in him because they had falsified the Bible to have riches in this life. (The real reason was that they knew the Bible and saw that many of Muhammad's claims about its contents were wrong.) Also see 4/44b just above.

017 4/48d: "- - - set up partners with Allah - - -". Non-Muslims do not set up partners with Allah. They simply do not believe he exists and set up another god - or other gods - instead. But Muhammad use the mentioned expression to claim that they know about Allah (and thus certifies his claims about Allah's existence), but have other gods in addition. Wrong. There are in this case oceans between "instead of " and "(together*) with".

018 4/116b: "- - - one who joins gods with Allah - - -". Non-Muslims do not join gods with Allah. They simply do not believe he exists, and believe in their own god(s). An exception may be the old Arabs, who believed in their main pagan god, al-Lah, which Muhammad claimed in reality was the only god Allah - this in case is one of the Arabisms in the Quran.

019 5/65a: "If only the People of the Book had believed - - -". They did believe, and so much that they rather choose to flee or to be murdered, than to leave their religion. But they believed in the Bible, and saw that so much was different in the Quran, that when Muhammad claimed it was the same religion and Yahweh and Allah the same god, they saw that something was seriously wrong - it simply was not true. This even more so as also they did not believe in his unfounded claims that the Bible was falsified.

020 5/76a. "Will ye (Christians*) worship, besides Allah (Jesus*) - - -". No Christian (or Jew or other non-Muslim) worships something besides Allah. They do not believe in Allah at all, and worship another god, Yahweh, INSTEAD OF Allah. There is a huge difference between these two concepts. (Oh, we know the Quran claims - and as normal for the Quran without proofs - that Yahweh and Allah are the same god, but their teachings are far too different for that to be true.)

021 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, contradictions, loose claims, 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.

022 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 Muslim 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 used 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.)

023 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. But Muhammad was unable to prove anything essential - the real reason for disbelief.

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.

###024 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-talking 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.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

025 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.

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.)

026 7/33g: "- - - assigning partners to Allah - - -". Wrong. Most non-Muslims do not assign partners to Allah. They simply do not believe he exists and instead believe in other gods - or another god (like Yahweh). Assigning partners to Allah, was only done in the old Arabia, and really not to Allah, but to Allah before he was dressed up by Muhammad and still was the pagan god al-Lah - an Arabism (see 4/13d above).

027 7/34c: "- - - not an hour can they (humans*) cause delay, nor (an hour) can they advance (it in anticipation)." Predestination is absolute - man can do exactly nothing. Which means that man’s claimed free will is an illusion? But it also means that war and battles are not dangerous - you do not die until your time is up, but then you die either you are in the midst of a hard battle, working in your fields, or sleeping in your bed. A very nice religion for a robber baron and for a warlord - wrong of course, which is easy to prove nowadays by means of statistics, but naive people even today may believe in it. But also see 7/34a above: Have prayers any meaning at all in Islam, when prayers can change nothing?

028 7/75c: “’Know ye (believers*) indeed that Salih (a claimed prophet for the tribe or people Thamud. He according to the Quran lived sometime between Noah and Moses, but after the claimed prophet Hud – Moses is said by Islam to speak about him, though not in the Bible*) is a prophet from his Lord?’ They said:’ We do indeed believe in the revelation which has been sent through him.'”

Comment to 7/75 (A7/58 - 7/60 in the 2008 English edition): “The contents of this message (lit., ”that with which he has been sent”) appeared to them justification enough to accept it on its merits, without the need of any esoteric “proof” of Silah’s mission. In this subtle way this statement of faith has a meaning which goes far beyond the story of the Thamud. It is an invitation to the skeptic who is unable to believe in the divine origin of a religious message, to judge it on its intrinsic merits and not make his acceptance dependant on extraneous, and objectively impossible, proofs of its origin: for only through the contents can its truth and validity be established”.

Well, proofs – or at least documentation – is not more “objectively impossible” than that the Christians have got documentation in NT, and partly confirmed in the Quran, for that something supernatural was involved with Jesus and with Yahweh (another question is whether one wants to believe in that documentation or not). It ALWAYS is possible for a god to prove his existence (but not for a human to prove a god). What to be aware of here is that Islam has not one single proof for anything central concerning the religion – not one single bit; only the word of a man with a very special mentality and morality – or amorality. Therefore they have to argue for blind belief and for that proofs are unnecessary, yes, that demands for proofs are intellectual stupidity and lack of intelligence. Which they do. And which is wrong - in all aspects of life the most sure way to be cheated now and then, is to believe blindly. Besides: If intelligence is given by a god, surely his meaning was that we should use it.

And we repeat: There would be no problem for a real god to prove his own existence

One problem here is that it is logically and intellectually impossible to know something that is not proved. One maximally can believe strongly – sometimes so strongly that one believes one knows. But not proved beliefs never are more than beliefs – strong or not. But even strong beliefs ever so often have been – and are – wrong. People “knew” the Earth was flat – and it was wrong. Then people “knew” Earth was the center of the geocentric Universe – and it was wrong. Then people “knew” Sol or Helios (2 names for our sun) was the centre of heliocentric Universe – wrong. And then they “knew” our galaxy (“The Milky Way”) was the entire Universe – wrong once more. And in all religions – f.x. Islam - there are people who “know” they are right and that all others are wrong - - - and most of them have to be wrong (and Muslims with their somewhat special founder and everything built only on his claims - only claims - and with lots and lots and lots of mistakes, etc. in their holy book, in reality are in a most weak position for being among the ones – if any – who are right).

But because their total lack of proofs and even of real indicia, Islam claims and claims and strongly claims that the texts in a book with lots of mistakes and errors and wrongs, prove that a god has made it, that lack of ability to see this is your stupidity, not that the book is not perfect - and that blind belief is the ideal. Which is a main – if not the main – reason why Muslims and Islam cannot accept or see any mistake in the Quran, no matter how obvious: If there are mistakes in the Quran, the book is not from a god - and then Islam is a false religion. That is a possibility too hard to face.

##029 7/89d: “- - - nor could we (humans*) by any manner or means return thereto (the right way*), unless it be as in the will and plan of Allah - - -:” According to the Quran it is Allah who decides whether you believe in him and live like a good Muslim or not. But all the same if you do not believe in him and live accordingly, he punishes you with Hell. A fair, good and benevolent god??!

###030 7/120a: After Moses made his miracle “the sorcerers fell down prostate in adoration”, and were convinced that the god of Moses was a strong and real one. This is one of the proofs for that Muhammad knew he was lying when he time and again told his audiences that it would have no effect to perform miracles, because disbelievers would not believe anyhow, and thus "explained" away the fact that he (and his presumed god) was unable to make miracles. Here he tells just the opposite. Disbelievers - even sorcerers - in Muhammad's own words here became Muslims because of one small miracle in his own story about Moses(!), - a psychologically much more correct tale on just this one point. The same story in 20/69-70. That Muhammad told this story, also shows that he knew miracles works, and thus that he knew he was lying in the Quran every time he told Allah did not send miracles because it would make nobody believe anyhow.

031 7/121c: "We (the sorcerers*) believe in the Lord of the Worlds (Allah*) - - -". See 7/120a+b+c above.

032 7/146e: "- - - even if they (non-Muslims*) see all the Signs (of Allah*), they will not believe in them - - -". For the very natural reason that there nowhere exists even one "sign" clearly from Allah, and when one meets made up "proofs" (which the claimed "signs" in the Quran pretend to be), one naturally grows skeptical - the use of made up or false proofs is a "flag of danger" and an indication - often a proof - of a cheat, a deceiver, a swindler. Also see 7/120a above.

F.x. see the pharaoh’s magicians. This is one more place in the Quran Muhammad knew he was lying - some reliable signs, and a lot of people will believe. Muhammad was too intelligent and knew too much about people not to know this. But NB: Only in the case of reliable signs.

034 7/158k: "So believe in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -." Muhammad's main mantra - here in a strengthened version. It glued him to his god. A platform of power many have used - though none with a success like Muhammad's.

####Note how close Muhammad attaches himself to the power of his claimed god - in plain words: "Obey me - Muhammad". You find this many, many places in the Quran. Self-centered. Selfish? Power was the main thing Muhammad sought - and riches to gain more power. The Quran clearly indicates that power - and respect - meant even more for him than women. And he was eager for (young) women - willing ones and not willing ones - and at least one child.

As for believing in him that is a bit risky, as all the errors, etc. in the Quran prove there never was a god involved in that book.

035 7/172d: "- - - made them (people*) testify concerning themselves". Another interesting claim: (A7/138 - in English 2008 edition A7/139) tells that "According to the Quran, the ability to perceive the existence of the Supreme Power (= god*) is inborn in human nature (fitrah); and it is this instinctive cognition - which may or may not be subsequently blurred by self-indulgence or adverse environmental influence - that makes every sane human being 'bear witness about himself' before Allah". Science has never found any trace of such inborn, instinctive knowledge. (They have found that a minor percent of humans have an inborn longing for something strong to lead them - a god - but nothing like an inborn, instinctive knowledge. Actually man has very few real instincts, and very little inborn knowledge - almost everything has to be learnt.)

But when one meets claims like this from Islam and Muslims, one should remember that they frequently use claimed (but not existing) instinctive knowledge or understanding and similar expressions as arguments for why Islam is the correct religion and for why one should believe in Muhammad and his religion. As they have exactly no proof or documentation for the religion they have to do two things: 1). Glorify Muhammad so that he sounds as trustworthy as possible, and resort to unclear and not documented claims like "instinctive knowledge" about Allah or at least about divinity. But do remember that Muhammad himself proved what kind of man he was - forget the glorifying, cheap words, and look for his deeds, demands, lies, rules, moral, etc. And 2). Use mysticism, but neither proved knowledge nor proved facts. The fact that they need to use such "arguments" and claims, tells miles about lack of real facts and arguments - and also about their reliability, as these are the kind of "arguments" and claims you normally meet from mystics and from charlatans and other cheaters.

If you have little knowledge about humans and human psychology, just read and reflect on this. If you have good knowledge about it, you get a hearty laugh from such claims from Islam.

In reality this only is mysticism - actually bordering dishonesty, as science more or less has proved such an instinctive "ability to perceive the Supreme Power" does not exist. But neither Muhammad nor Islam had/has anything better to offer for a "proof".

036 7/179d: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) have hearts wherewith they understand not, eyes wherewith they see not, and ears wherewith they hear not". May be the real truth is just the opposite, and that the reason why they do not believe in Muhammad and his Quran, is that they understand that something was and is seriously wrong.

037 7/185d: "In what Message after this (Muhammad's*) will they (non-Muslims*) then believe?" Difficult to say, as some choose one belief, others another one. But for thinking persons with some knowledge it is difficult to choose a belief which itself proves strongly that something is very wrong. For children brainwashed and pressured from baby age and never taught critical thinking, it may be explainable. But for adults to choose such a religion it takes a lot of lack of knowledge, a lot of lack of brain, or a lot of naivety. Or perhaps some al-Taqiyya (lawful lie) or Kitman (lawful half-truth) from Islam - both of which and more "if necessary" or if "it gives a better result" ought to be used to promote Islam, f.x. by making proselytes believe in Islam and become Muslims. ######(3 out of 4 who become Muslims in adult age, leave the religion within 3 years. What do they learn inside Islam which make them loose their belief?) Islam is the only of the big religions who promotes the using of lies to among other things defend or promote the religion.

###038 7/198b: In connection to this verse M. Yusuf Ali - a Muslim scholar who knew the real, historical side of Muhammad, not only the glossy picture from the imams, very well, in all his stealing and robbing, raping, womanizing, lying, torture, murder, and blood - wrote this about Muhammad (YA 1169): "Even now, after fourteen centuries, ##########a life (Muhammad's*) of unexampled purity, probity, justice, and righteousness is seen in the false light by blind detractors!" It simply is very difficult to believe that it is humanly possible honestly to believe in such a shining picture for a learned scholar who knew the reality. And what then about uneducated Muslims?

Is this really the "realism" in Islam?

In that case it is easy to see why many Muslim areas are pretty backward.

Are we living in the same world?

Or is this really what the Muslim moral code is like?

Did Yusuf Ali really believe what he said? - one of the foremost Muslim scholars and translators in last century?! - or is it perhaps an al-Taqiyya meant to satisfy the clergy/religious scholars?"

Or does this tell something about Islam and al-Taqiyya - the lawful lie Muslims are urged to use if necessary to defend and forward the religion (and some other things)???

The sentence made a huge impression on us, and told us much about Muslim integrity, reliability, and moral backbone.

039 7/202c: "- - - deeper into error - - -". The question is: Are they (non-Muslims) in error? At least some may believe in an existing god. And what about Muslims if the Quran is a made up book? - remember it at least is from no god, with all those mistakes, etc.

040 8/23a: "If Allah had found in them any good, He would indeed have made them (non-Muslims*) listen - - -". Take it easy - there is nothing wrong with "our" belief. The reason why they do not believe in "our" claimed truth, is that they are so bad that Allah do not want them. Muslims use the same logic today: If anyone does not believe in Islam, it is because they do not know what they are talking about, or because they are bad, or because they are Islam-haters, or because they are Americans, or things like that - easy ways to flee from the fact that many who rejects Islam are intelligent people with much knowledge, and that perhaps there is a reason why they reject it.

But: If Allah created them, how could they be not good quality?

################A sobering fact: The main point about a piece of information, is not who gave it - be it an enemy or not - but if it is true or not. A disturbing fact here is that persons negative to something often know more about questionable points and facts than do strong believers, who tend to see only what they want to see.

041 8/55c: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) will not believe (in Muhammad and his Quran*)- - -". Perhaps the real reason - at least for some - was that they had too much knowledge and saw that something was - and is - very wrong and, therefore, were unable to believe in it. It is difficult or impossible to believe in things which one knows are proved wrong, for people able to see.

042 9/9d: "- - - evil indeed are the deeds (hindering persons from becoming Muslims*) they (pagans) have done". If Allah exists, is a god, and the Quran has told the truth and only the truth, it is bad to hinder people to become Muslims. If Allah does not exist or is not a god, and the god(s) the non-Muslims believe in, also does not exist, it does not matter what is done - well, perhaps to hinder them from Islam is a slightly good thing, as most religions have better moral codes, etc. If the non-Muslims' god - f.x. Yahweh - do exist, it is a good thing to lead people there instead. And if Allah exists, but is something from the dark forces (which f.x. the Quran's moral code indicates), it is a good thing to lead people away from him.

043 9/17c: "- - - join gods with Allah - - -". The old Arabs joined gods with their old pagan god al-Lah/Allah, and not with Muhammad's monotheistic version of Allah (Muhammad only accepted the name Allah). But for that no-one joins gods with him. They simply do not believe he exists, and believe in another god - or gods.

044 9/23c: "- - - infidelity - - -". = Not believing in Muhammad and his new religion. But is it infidelity if they f.x. believe in Yahweh if Yahweh happen to exist? - and even more so if Allah do not exist? If the old books tell the truth, Yahweh has proved his existence many times, but Allah never - and even worse: The Quran tries to prove him with a lot of invalid "signs" and some as invalid "proofs" - a proof for that Muhammad had no real proofs for Allah. If he had had, he had used them instead. Besides: The use of fast-talk and invalid proofs are hallmarks of cheaters and deceivers. The same are lies.

045 9/86c: “When a surah comes down (to Muhammad*), enjoining them to believe in Allah and strive and struggle (= make war*) with His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Nearly as far as possible away from the NT as it is possible to come. The same god? The same line of prophets? Possible to believe only if you are naive.

046 9/127d: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) are a people who understand not". Psychologically a good "explanation" for Muhammad to give his followers for why many did not believe in his new religion. Strong believers readily swallow claims like this. But may be the real reason was that non-Muslims understood.

047 10/38e: "- - - and call (to your aid) anyone besides Allah - - -". Non-Muslims do not call to aid anyone "besides Allah", but instead of Allah. Muhammad liked to pretend they had gods in addition to Allah, but they simply did and do not believe in Allah at all. And even the Quran strongly indicates they were and are right - a book of a quality like the Quran is from no god, and definitely not from an omniscient one. To claim a god has made the Quran is slander, insults, and heresy towards the indicated god.

048 10/57c: "- - - (the Quran is*) a healing for the (diseases) in your hearts - - -". There is not much healing in a "medical" book full of mistakes, contradictions, etc.

###On the other hand it is a very well known phenomenon that your psychology can be at work if you believe something strongly enough. The question often is not if it is right or wrong, but if you really believe in something. Because of this f.x. all religions and several other strong beliefs may have an effect on your health, both the psychological one and the bodily one. It f.x. is a medical fact that believing Christians on average feel more inner peace than non-believers. The effect is the same for f.x. Buddhists and should be similar for Muslims (if not the fact that Islam is a religion of war and discrimination disturbs the picture).

049 10/66d: "What do they (non-Muslims*) follow who worship as His (Allah's*) 'partners' other than Allah?" The trouble is that a similar question can be asked about Muslims, as all the mistakes, etc. in the Quran prove that the book is not from a god.

The answer in reality is plain and simple: They simply did not believe in Muhammad and his new religion or in Allah - some of them because they saw that things were very wrong in that religion.

050 10/84b: "- - - believe in Allah - - -". According to the Bible only Yahweh was engaged in this story.

*051 10/90c: “I (Ramses II) believe that there is no god except Him Whom the Children of Israel believe in (indicated by Muhammad to be Allah)". One more thing we know about Ramses II (see 10/90), is that he was a polytheist and never a Muslim – and never a Jew. This episode is nowhere mentioned in the Bible. It also is historically wrong.

################This episode(?) told by Muhammad in 614-615 AD also is a very strong proof for that Muhammad knew that miracles or other proofs from a god - like indicated Ramses II understood here - would make people believers, and thus a strong proof for that he knew he lied each time later when he "explained" away requests for proofs from/for Allah with the claim that proofs or miracles would have no effect.

052 10/99b: “If it had been thy Lord’s (Allah’s*) Will, they would all have believed (in Islam*) - all who are on earth!” Far from all believe - not even after 1400 years. This either means Allah does not want the majority to believe, but instead go to Hell - or he is not able to make them believe in spite of the big words via/from(?) Muhammad.

############053 11/87c: "- - - the worship which our fathers practiced - - -". The reason why Muslims believe in Islam is that their fathers and surroundings claim it is the truth, not that they ever have gone into the material to see if it at all is possible that it can be true. (Which it is not with all those mistakes, contradictions, etc. in the Quran).

054 12/3f: "- - - before this (the surahs of the Quran*), thou too (Muslims*) wast among those who knew it (the religion?*) not". Comment A12/3: "(The Arab words "la'allakum ta'qilun" here*) are meant to impress upon everyone who listens to or reads the Quran that its appeal is directed, primarily, to man's reason, and that the "feeling" alone can never provide a sufficient basis of faith". Muhammad understood psychology and used similar claims rather frequently - impressing on his followers that "you are intelligent who understand and follow my teachings" - to be told they are wise and intelligent is flattering, especially for uneducated and/or naive persons. #####But if Islam had been based on knowledge and peoples' intelligence and reason, it had disappeared fast and become a bloody comma and a sample of peoples' incredible ability to believe in spite of knowledge and facts, and of their as incredible ability to be blind to everything they do not want to see. Islam rests on the gut feeling that "what my parents and everyone else told me when I was a child and later was right, and what all my surroundings and imams claim is the truth, is the truth" - Islam simply rests on "taqlid" to use an Arab word - and the "claimed" mistakes in the Quran are just that the others do not know anything or do not understand that the "explanations" mean there are no mistakes anyhow, and the facts others point to are just lies from "Muslim-haters", and, therefore, there is no reason to check or think over facts not consistent with Islam. (The fact that often it is the opponents who are best informed about negative facts - facts - concerning something, they never even think about.) The same goes for its partly horrible moral code.

(There is much in that moral code - and Islam only have a moral code, no moral philosophy, as everything has to be done like Muhammad said or did - which is far from the basis for all real inter-human moral: "Do unto others like you want others do unto you".)

**055 13/1f: “- - - the Book: that which hath been revealed unto thee (Muhammad*) from thy Lord (Allah*) - - - “. "That is the question", to quote Hamlet: Did a god really produce and reveal a book with that many mistakes, contradictions, and invalid claims and “proofs“? No. And when no god revealed it, he also did not reveal it to Muhammad.

An alternative is that the Devil impersonated Gabriel, and in other cases told Muhammad “by inspiration”, and that it thus was revealed to him, but from dark forces. Another alternative is that it all stems from a cold and sick brain – TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy) + lust for power may easily explain everything. Yet another alternative is that it was not revealed, but made up – the fact that many of the mistakes are in accordance with the wrong science of the time and area of Muhammad, and also the fact that Muhammad was not stupid enough to believe everything that is said in the Quran, may indicate that it is made up. (As for the last argument: F.x. the claim that miracles would not make any people believe, Muhammad was too intelligent and knew too much about people to believe himself – and f.x. Jesus was a good proof of the opposite: A lot did not believe in spite of everything, but quite a number came to believe in Jess because of what they saw and heard and witnessed. The same was the conclusion of the story that Muhammad himself told about the magicians of Pharaoh Ramses II and Moses: They came (according to Muhammad’s own words) to believe after a small miracle.) For similar also see 2/231 – 3/3 – 4/136 – 5/48 – 5/59 - 5/64 – 5/67 – 6/7 – 7/2 – 7/3 – 10/2 – 13/19 – 16/89 – 18/1 - 16/102 – 25/33 – 27/6 – 33/2 – 34/6 – 35/24 – 35/31 – 39/2 - 47/2.

Thus to repeat:

An alternative is that the f.x. the Devil impersonated Gabriel, and in other cases told Muhammad “by inspiration” what thus was "revealed" to him. The inhumanity of the religion would then be explained. Personally we doubt this explanation, if for no other reason, then because even a devil would not make that many mistakes, contradictions, etc. in the Quran - he simply would not want to be found out by his victims sooner or later. There is one possibility, though: If Iblis - the Islamic Devil - got permission from Allah for trying to lure more humans to Hell only on the condition that the trap should be one which was easy for thinking persons to see, then all the mistakes may be explained. To be flippant: May be the god did not want too many too stupid humans into his Paradise?

Another alternative is that it all stems from a sick brain – TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy) + lust for power and women may easily explain everything. In this case Muhammad may have believed at least partly in his own tales and religion.

Yet another alternative is that it was not revealed, but made up in cold blood. The fact that many of the mistakes are in accordance with the wrong science of the time and area of Muhammad, the fact that most of the tales in the Quran are from stories, legends, fairy tales, etc. known in Arabia at that time, and also the fact that Muhammad was not stupid enough to believe everything that is said in the Quran, may indicate that it is made up. In this case it may have been made up of one (or more) helper like many of his contemporaries suspected, or by himself - the last is most likely, at least for parts of it.

As for the last argument we repeat: F.x. that miracles would not make some people believe, Muhammad was too intelligent and knew too much about people to believe himself – f.x. Jesus was a good proof of the opposite: A lot did not believe in spite of everything, but quite a number came to believe in Jesus because of what they saw and witnessed. The same was the conclusion of the story that Muhammad himself told about the magicians and Moses: They came (according to Muhammad’s own words) to believe after a small miracle.

056 13/5a: "If thou dost marvel (at their want of faith) - - -". No, we do not. It is easy to understand that intelligence and real knowledge make it difficult to believe in a book with that much wrong, and told only by that kind of a man. But we marvel at the believers - not at their belief, because belief always is possible, especially by the naive, the uneducated ones with little knowledge, or the brain washed ones. But we marvel at many peoples' ability to believe without even checking the truth of what they believe in - yes, taking pride in believing without ever checking if what they believe in can be true! - taking pride in believing blindly without ever thinking over that blind belief is blind! And as bad: Believing not because of proofs, but in spite of proofs of that things are being wrong! Sometimes a little flattery is all which is needed to make them take the bait.

057 13/28b: “- - - for without doubt in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find satisfaction”. This only is true for (some) Muslims, and in difficult times also some others seeking comfort in their religion. Science tells that a minor fraction of the people (may be 5 - 10%) has an internal drive for a god - for something strong to lean to - and some more resort to such thinking when life is difficult. (In 2006 or 2007 they even found which gene in our DNA which produces this drive. One theory is that religion is favored by evolution because it makes the group closer knit and then the chances for survival bigger). These people find satisfaction in their religion - no matter which religion - if they do believe in it. And if they happen to be Muslims, they then find satisfaction in Allah. But NB: The satisfaction does not derive from the god they believe in – he/she may well be a fiction, like Allah seems to be (strongly indicated by all the mistakes, contradictions, etc. in the Quran) – but from their own belief, as it is strong enough to make them feel sure it is right, and then feel secure in that security (false or not does not matter, as long as they themselves believe their belief is right). There is a possibility that this feeling of security, and hence safety and reduced nervousness, is another Darwinian reason for this inherited trait – it may in some way give an edge in the fight for survival.

The question these ideas of course produce is: Is there a god somewhere or are they all made up from our needs for something supernatural? What is sure here, is f.x. that all the errors, contradictions, etc. in the Quran, give many and strong at least circumstantial and empirical proofs for that the book is from no god, and thus that it is highly likely that Allah is a made up god - this even more so as he originally was a pagan god - al-Lah - whom Muhammad took over and dressed up. And if he all the same exists, it is highly unlikely he is correctly described in a book full of wrong facts and other errors + lots of contradictions and many more loose claims and invalid "proofs", etc.

We should try to find out, because if it all stems from inside us, we should try to do something with the inhuman and immoral religions, to which Islam belongs - remember the basis for all inter-human real moral; "Do onto others what you want others do onto you". Few religions - and hardly any of the big ones - are further away from this than Islam.

058 14/11a: "Their (earlier people's*) messengers said to them: 'True, we are humans like yourselves - - -.'" It seems to have been essential for Muhammad to tell his followers that he was a normal prophet, and only met problems and distrust prophets normally do meet - that made it easier for his followers to believe in him. Nearly all former prophets - real or not - he told about, he claimed had identical stories to his own = he was identical to the old accepted prophets = Claimed proof: I am a real prophet. Also see 14/10j above.

#059 15/12-13: "Even so do We (Allah*) let it creep into the hearts of the sinners - That they should not believe in the (Message (the Quran*))." No-one who honestly claim that Allah and Yahweh is the same god, has ever read NT with an open mind. The fundamental differences are too deep and too big. F.x. Allah hinders sinners from believing. Yahweh/Jesus goes far out of his/their way to save them - "the lost sheep", etc. - even in "the 11. hour" = up to the very last moment. (Luke 15/8-10 - 15/11-31, Matt. 18/12-14 - 20/8-13)

060 16/17c: "Is then He (claimed Allah*) Who creates like one that creates not?" No - not if he really creates whereas the others really do not. But as the whole of this claim only rests on a book full of mistaken facts, loose claims, etc., dictated by a man of very doubtful moral and reliability, no rational and intelligent person can believe in it without documentation - and all we have seen are strong claims built on nothing, and as strong demands for and idolizing of blind belief, the most sure way of being cheated in all other aspects of life.

061 16/64e: "- - - things in which they (non-Muslims*) differ - - -". Things which make them not believe in Muhammad.

062 16/72e: "- - - will they (people?/your women?/your descendants?*) then believe in vain things (other gods*) - - -". The old question: What if at least some of them believe in an existing god? - f.x. in Yahweh if he, too, is not a dreamt up one.

Well, there is one more serious question: Is Allah also a "vain thing"? There never was a single proof for his existence - only the claims from a man who provably believed in the use of dishonesty if necessary to succeed, a man who had Allah as his platform of power, and a man who very obviously liked power and women.

063 16/95b: "Nor sell the Covenant of Allah for a miserable price - - -". Often this also is one of Muhammad's standard explanations why many did not believe in him: They wanted a good life on Earth, and therefore did not want to listen to him - like he claimed: They sold Paradise for a good life here in this world - which was a miserable price to get for Paradise. But was the claim true?

Another relevant fact: A covenant is an agreement between minimum two parts. There is nowhere in or outside the Quran proved that Allah "signed" this claimed covenant as a part. If he has not done so, there is no covenant, only promises from Muslims to - a hoped existing - Allah.

064 16/107a: "This (that many would not believe Muhammad*) because they love the life of this world better than the Hereafter (Paradise*) - - -". This is a claim you meet many places in the Quran; the reason why the skeptics did not believe in Muhammad was that they were bad people, not that they saw that things were wrong in his teaching or that they really believed in another god (or gods). Claiming that they were low quality, psychologically was a much better explanation to give his - Muhammad's - followers and others.

065 17/48a: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) have gone astray". Only if Allah exists, if he is behind the Quran, and if the Quran in addition tells the full truth and only the truth. If they then in addition believe in a real god, the non-Muslims are not astray.

066 17/90c: “They (non-Muslims*) say: ‘We shall not believe in thee (Muhammad*), until thou cause a spring to gush forth for us from the earth (or give us some other proof*)”. Strong requests - and a positive answer would have had effect. But there never was any proof for anything - not for Allah, not for Gabriel, not for Muhammad being a prophet or a messenger, not for Islam. Only claims - and claims are cheap.

067 17/99j: "- - - the unjust refuse (to receive it (the Quran*)) - - -". As mentioned before, many already then understood that something was wrong. These naturally were among the ones who refused to believe in the Quran.

068 18/6a: "You (persons*) wouldst only, perchance, fret thyself to death, following after them (non-Muslims*), in grief, if they believe not in this Message (the Quran*)". Not if they happened to believe in a real god, and especially not if on top of this the Quran and Allah are made up - not to mention if Allah is from the dark forces (like f.x. parts of the Quran's moral code may indicate).

069 18/15a: "- - - why do they (non-Muslims*) not bring forward an authority clear (= proofs*) - - -". What is the logic of telling that no-one will believe in Allah even if he sent no real proofs, and then demand proofs from all other religions? - the answer should be the same: Why should anyone believe in proofs from other gods if they do not believe in proofs from Allah? (Though the claim from Muhammad that nobody would believe if there were real miracles simply is not true, and Muhammad knew it was a lie - he was too intelligent and knew too much about people not to know that this was a lie.) But it is a bit ironic that the Quran always demands proofs from everybody else, even though itself is unable to prove anything of any consequence at all - they only pretend that what they say and the Quran says are facts.

070 18/110g: "- - - in the worship of (Allah*), admit no one as (Allah's*) Partner". Believers in other religions did and do not add gods to Allah - a claim Muhammad liked to make his own god more central (though in Arabia the old ones had gods in addition to al-Lah/Allah - the old Pagan god Muhammad transformed and only named Allah - so with a little twisting he could claim so there). They simply did not and do not believe Allah exists, and believe in another or other god(s) - f.x. Yahweh.

071 20/16c: “- - - let not such as believe not therein (in the Quran*) but follow their own lusts, divert thee (Muslim*) therefrom, lest thou perish.” You in case only perish if the Quran is correct in all and everything, included in the never proved claims that Allah, but no other god, exists.

072 20/23b: "- - - Our (according to the Quran: Allah's*) Greater Signs - - -." There do not and never did exist signs clearly from or proving Allah - neither small nor great ones (Islam admits this, but does not talk about it - on the contrary they use al-Taqiyya and tell their congregations about the made up miracles, etc. which the Quran proves are not true, and which Islam also admits are not true by admitting that "there are no miracles connected to Muhammad, except the making of the Quran". It actually is unbelievable that Islam is able to make their followers believe in claims - claimed miracles - which the "holy" book proves are wrong, even though they also themselves say that the claimed miracles are not true. But then one of the "signatures" for blind belief is belief not because of proofs, but in spite of being proved wrong). Also see 2/39b.

073 21/66b: "Do you then worship, besides Allah - - -". Except for in Arabia where the pagans had gods beside al-Lah (not Muhammad's Allah, but the original pagan god al-Lah/Allah whom Muhammad took over and dressed up), no other places people had gods besides Allah/al-Lah. They simply did not believe in this god and had their own - and if the Quran's claim that its god was for the entire world, the god had known that this expression was wrong. But by repeating and repeating it, Muhammad gave a picture of a god known all over - or at least had been known all over, but with competition from local (false) gods. Good psychology as long as the listeners accepts anything in blind belief. Also see 25/18a below.

##074 21/66c: "Do you then worship, besides Allah, things that can be neither of any good to you nor do you harm?" To continue this way of thinking: "Do you then worship a claimed god who not one single time in the entire history has not proveably done even one single man, woman or child neither any good nor any harm? A god whose existence only are to be found in claims from a man believing in lying (al-Taqiyya, Kitman, Hilah), deceit ("War is deceit" and "everything" is Jihad), and broken words/promises/oaths! And a man wanting power and women - like many a false prophet, but few real prophets.

And to repeat it: Except for in Arabia where the pagans had gods beside al-Lah (not Muhammad's Allah, but the original pagan god al-Lah/Allah whom Muhammad took over and dressed up), no other places people had gods besides Allah/al-Lah. They simply did not believe in this god and had their own - and if the Quran's claim that its god was for the entire world, the god had known that this expression was wrong. But by repeating and repeating it, Muhammad gave a picture of a god known all over - or at least had been known all over, but with competition from local (false) gods. Good psychology as long as the listeners accepts anything in blind belief. Also see 25/18a below.

075 21/67b: "Have ye (non-Muslims*) no sense (believing in other gods than Allah*)". Muhammad often pretended that to believe in Allah is logical if you are intelligent - who does not like to be reckoned among the intelligent ones, especially if you are not very intelligent. He also used to pretend Allah was a proved fact, without the slightest proof. You meet varieties of these arguments not a few places in the Quran. Also see 13/3j above.

076 21/67c: "Have ye (non-Muslims*) no sense (believing in other gods than Allah*)". May be good sense was just what they had - and then saw something was very wrong in the new religion.

077 21/106b: "Verily in this (Quran) is a Message for people who would (truly) worship Allah". That may well be, but if the Quran is a made up book - by men or dark forces, as no god is involved in a book with so much wrong - also the message is a made up one, and then the god may also be a made up one. (May be we should hope he is made up, as he at points is very immoral, unfair, bloody and harsh. As we have said before: When a man or a god says something, but demands and does something very differently, we any day believe in his demands and his deeds, not in his words - words are too cheap.

078 22/6a: “- - - Allah is the Reality - - -“. Not unless Islam brings real proofs. It is too naïve to blindly believe in a religion only based on a book with lots of mistakes, contradictions, twisted facts and invalid logic – told by a man with a highly suspect moral, but a strong liking for power and riches for bribes for even more power - and women - and with his religion being his platform of power; Self-centered. Selfish? If it is a claim, it is not possible to prove it just by more unproved claims, no matter how strongly framed or how often repeated - it needs real proofs. If it is a lie it, it does not become a truth from loose, if strong other claims. But repeated frequently enough, both wrong information and lies may be believed by some - just ask the famous Nazi "Minister of Propaganda" Joseph Gobbles.

"In all aspects of life naivety and blind belief is the most sure way to be cheated - and blind belief is just what Islam glorifies and demands, because they have nothing but loose claims and words to offer".

But a possible and eternal next life is too essential a question to rely on blindness and big, loose claims and flattery asking you not to think, but just listen to their words and claims. If there is a god somewhere, your brain is the second greatest gift he gave you (after life). Do you think he in case gave it to you just to fill up an empty scull?

####079 22/46d: "Truly it is not their eyes that are blind (as they do not believe in the Quran and in Muhammad*) - - -". What the Quran forgets(?) to mention, is that Muslims are victims of just the same human dilutions like others: A blind heart and a blind brain are blinder than a blind eye and deafer than a deaf ear. This is the only possible reason why they do not see all the many big and small errors, etc. in the Quran - #########they are unable to or unwilling to see, or are unable to face the terrifying fact that something is horribly wrong with one of the basic elements they have built their lives on.

080 22/54b: "- - - those on whom knowledge has been bestowed - - - may believe therein (in the Quran*) - - -". It is not possible for anyone with real knowledge AND a little training in critical thinking + have a brain which still function, to believe in the Quran. It is not possible to believe in something you see is full of mistakes and worse, or to believe in a religion where it is easy to see no god has ever been involve (no god was ever involved in a book of a quality like the Quran).

But Muhammad often used these age-old tricks; flattery and deception.

081 23/56b: "- - - they do not understand". One of Muhammad's standard "explanations" for why many did not believe in him. It still is one of the standard Muslim "explanations" for why many see things are very wrong in the Quran. This even though the real fact often is that "they" really understand.

082 23/67a: "In ignorance - - -". This was one of Muhammad's standard "explanations" for why opponents did not believe in him - and it is a standard "explanation" today. This even when debating with persons knowing much more than they also about the Quran. It is a safe road to flee.

083 24/62a: "Only those are Believers, who believe in Allah and his Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". It is not enough to believe in Allah - the claimed god. One also must believe in one specific of his many, many claimed messengers - Muhammad. Here is something strange - if Muhammad is not divine, the religion should be complete without one of its very many claimed prophets. What is wrong here? - or is Allah incomplete without Muhammad, one of his 124ooo (= 620 at any time for 5ooo years or 12-15 for 160-200ooo years. No traces from them found. Believe it if you can.) claimed prophets? And cannot belief in one or more of the other 124ooo claimed prophets/messengers prove that a person is a Muslim? Has it to be belief in that Muhammad is Allah's prophet? If that is the case no Muslim could exist before Muhammad.

But the claim is a good one if the intention was to glue Muhammad to his platform of power - his religion.

084 25/29a: "He (non-Muslim*) did lead me (bad Muslim*) astray from the Message - - -". Bad if Allah exists, if he was involved in making the Quran, and if the Quran tells the full and only the truth. Good if not - this even if there are no other gods, as Islam is a primitive, inhuman and partly immoral religion, not only for the surroundings, but also for Muslims - with a possible exception for the leaders and some of the ones who stole themselves rich. (Perhaps also for some of the some 5-10% who need the belief in a god, #####but for them the effect is more or less the same no matter what god they believe in.)

##############But how could someone lead you astray if Allah predestines every detail of your life, like the Quran states several places?

##085 25/55d: "- - - the Misbeliever - - -". Who is a misbeliever and who not, will depend on who believe in a real god and who in one or more made up ones. Islam is in a weak position here, at it is proved beyond both reasonable and unreasonable doubts (but not beyond religious blindness, brainwashing, and wishful thinking - that is impossible) that its claimed holy book has no connection to a god - no god makes that many mistakes, contradictions, etc.

###086 26/74c: “They (Abraham's people*) said: ‘Nay, but we found our fathers doing thus (what we do)”.

(A26/38): “(Zamakhshari): ‘- - - ancient usage and precedence in time are no proof of (a concept’s) soundness”. Razi, for his part, states that (this*) verse represents ‘one of the strongest (Quranic) indications of the immorality (Arab “fasad”*) inherent in (the principle of) "taqlid", i.e. the blind, unquestioning adoption of religious concepts or practices on basis of one’s uncritical faith in no more than the “authority” of a scholar or a religious leader.”

  1. 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. And also for them it is highly immoral just to accept a religion or something just because their fathers and others believe in it.
  2. But there hardly is a major religion more authoritative and with a clearer demand for blind belief than Islam. Or with stronger and more ruthless indoctrination.

Also see 6/108b and 23/1b above.

087 27/60f: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) are a people who swerve from justice". Not if they happen to believe in a real god (if such one exists). And especially not if the Quran is a made up book - and it proves itself that it is not from any god, as no god would sully his name by being involved in a book where so much is wrong, included wrong facts. Besides: Many nations have laws more just and with better moral and ethics than the sharia laws of Islam. (Some of the paragraphs in the sharia are horrible).

##088 28/39b: "- - - they (the Egyptians*) thought they would not have to return to Us (Allah - at the Day of Doom)!" Comment YA3372: ####"They (the Egyptians*) did not believe in the Hereafter." This is an unbelievable comment, as there have been few cultures ever which have been so concentrated on the next life as the old Egyptians. That f.x. was the reason for mummifying and pyramids.

Another point is that this fact is so well known that there is no chance that top Muslim scholars do not know it. All the same they make up arguments like this. Dishonesty.

089 28/52b: “(Jews and Christians*) – they do believe in this (Revelation) - - -“. Flatly wrong. And flatly dishonest. A few became Muslims according to Islam, but the overwhelming majority had to flee, was made slaves, or was killed/murdered/executed because they refused to believe in Muhammad’s tales. Cfr. f.x. what happened in and around Medina and Khaybar in the years after this surah was told (in 621 AD or later). Contradicted by reality and history. And: One more place where an intelligent man like Muhammad knew he was lying, because this he knew. (Well, this is from 621 AD. Perhaps this early Muhammad believed it was a bluff and not a lie. But over a few years it became a lie by omission, because he did not correct it when he at least later learnt it was not true. Worse: He sporadically even then used claims like this.

##090 28/63: "Those whom we (non-Muslims*) lead astray, as we were astray ourselves - - -”.

Comment A28/66: “In its deepest sense, this passage – as so many similar throughout the Quran – points to the moral inadmissibility of accepting an ethical or intellectual proposition as true on no other grounds than that is was held to be true for older generations.”

For members of a religion based only – only – on a book with many mistakes and wrongs and with partly malevolent moral and ethical rules (but so integrated and accepted in and by their religion and culture, that they themselves are unable to see anything wrong or how bad it really is), this should be a reason for some deep thinking, and especially for Muslims where the ONLY basis was a man of very doubtful moral even according to the Quran (f.x. acceptance and personally use of dishonesty as working tools and of dishonesty - stealing/robbing/extortion - to get riches, not to mention facts like the acceptance and use of lies, deceit and worse, rape, suppression, etc., and with much power (and women) to gain from making people believe in his god and platform of power).

#######Most Muslims today believe in Islam - and in f.x. it’s partly immoral moral code - only because their fathers and surroundings tell them that the Quran is the truth, no matter how many errors one have to explain away. VERY FEW MUSLIMS HAVE SAT DOWN WITH THE QURAN AND ENGAGED THEIR KNOWLEDGE AND BRAIN AND WITH AN OPEN MIND TRIED TO FIND OUT: HOW MUCH OF THIS IS REALLY TRUE? - OR AT LEAST MAY BE TRUE? Not to mention: HOW RELIABLE WAS A MAN WITH A MORAL CODE LIKE THE ONE THE QURAN CLEARLY - IF YOU LOOK BEHIND THE GLORIFICATIONS - TELLS MUHAMMAD HIMSELF HAD?

091 29/46ec: "We (Muslims*) believe in the revelation which has come down to us and in that which has come down to you (Jews/Christians*) - - -". The implication here is that the Bible originally had the same messages as the Quran (but that it has been falsified). For one thing science has proved beyond any even unreasonable doubt (but beyond blindness or wishful thinking is impossible) that there is no falsification in the Bible - and Islam has proved it even stronger by being unable to find one single case of falsification among the many thousands of old papers which exist.

And for another thing the two teachings are so fundamentally different - too different to come from the same god. This claim simply is one of the many loose and never documented claims in the Quran which are wrong. Unless Islam for once proves something. The Quran simply is no confirmation of the Bible - not by many long shots.

092 29/61e: "How are they (non-Muslims*) then deluded away (from the truth)?" Who is most likely deluded: The one who believe in a book full of mistakes, clearly not from a god, and dictated by a man believing in using lies (al-Taqiyya), half-truths (Kitman), broken oaths according to the Quran, deceit ("war is deceit" - and "everything" is jihad), and liking power and women? Or the one not believing in him? Or the one believing in something else, which just might be a real god?

093 29/67e: "- - - believe in that which is vain - - -". Believe in other gods than Allah. But Muhammad accepted that the old Jewish god Yahweh was real - is belief in him in vain? And the Quran is not from any god - is then belief in Allah in vain or not?

094 30/29j: "To them (non-Muslims*) there will be no helpers". This will be true only if the Quran tells the full and only truth - it should be unnecessary to point to that this is not the case, and that on top of all no god ever was involved in a book so full of mistakes, etc. like the Quran. The claim in the verse is not true if the god(s) some non-Muslims believe in, really exist(s) - f. x. Yahweh.

PS: And what about helpers to Muslims if the Quran is a made up book? - remember that there is no god behind it (too many wrong facts, contradictions, etc.)

095 30/35b: "- - - pay part-worship - - -". Wrong. Non-Muslims simply believe Allah is a made up or false god and worship their own god(s). There is no question of part-worship - a phenomenon Muhammad may have launched because of the special situation with the god al-Lah/Allah (renamed by Muhammad to only Allah) in Arabia, or in order to magnify his own god by claiming all other worshipping only was part-worshipping to gods beside Allah - i.e. claiming Allah after all was the main god for everyone, which was and is untrue. Also see 25/18 a above.

096 31/21e: "'Nay, we non-Muslims*) shall follow the ways that we found our fathers (following)' What! Even if it is Satan beckoning them to the Penalty of the (Blazing) Fire?" But this is just what Muslims are doing - blindly and without real questions following the old beliefs.

"- - - 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 something is seriously wrong with the religion. The Arab word for this is "taqlid", and it describes the reality about the majority of Muslims.

(Also see 6/108b): “Thus have We (Allah*) made alluring to each people its own doings”. ***Comment A6/92 (A6/93 in the 2008 English edition): “'Lit., ‘thus godly have we made….', etc. implying that it is in the nature of man to regard the belief which have been implanted in him from childhood, and which he now shares with his social environment, as the only true and possible ones – with 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 to true facts.

To repeat it:But this is just what Muslims are doing - blindly and without real questions following the old beliefs. When our father tells us that the Quran is the truth, this must be correct, because so his grandfather told him!

*097 35/24b: “Verily We (Allah*) have sent thee (Muhammad*) - - -”. Verily Muhammad and the Quran repeats and repeats and repeats this (most often in the words “Allah and his Messenger”) - worthy of a certain German “Minister of Propaganda” between 1933 and 1945 we think it was, a very honest and reliable (?) man named Joseph Goebbels, whose slogan was: “Repeat a lie often enough, and people will start to believe it”. Here it has been repeated zillions of times through the time, and millions of Muslims believe in it - but then no Muslim society has ever trained their subjects in critical thinking, or for thinking realism. On the contrary: Muslim societies normally have trained them in the sick kind of thinking which is believing that most acts and most information not in accordance with the Quran, are lies which gives reason for conspiracy theories + they are taught blind belief in Islam and the mullah and the imam.

Perhaps the words in the quote are true. But most likely they are not - and Allah is no god (no god sends a book of that quality). One thing is all the mistakes in the Quran which tell it is not reliable and most likely is invented. More serious is that in spite of being asked again and again and again Muhammad was unable to prove anything at all - one hallmark of a lie – or more lies - is that proofs are impossible. One have to use fast-talk and evasions, both of which there are plenty of in the Quran. And when there is a question of proving anything, there still is plenty of fast-talk in Islam.

*But worst of all are all the invalid claims and statements, and the “signs”, “proofs” and fast-talk - those are the hallmarks of any smart cheater or false prophet, who for natural reasons is unable to produce proofs.

###098 36/74: "Yet they (non-Muslims*) take (for worship) gods other than Allan - - -". Most natural, as they do not believe in Allah - some even knowing how much is wrong in the Quran and thus in Islam.

099 37/32: "- - - astray - - -". Who are most astray - the ones blindly following the never proved, but proved wrong often, tales of a man of doubtful moral, but lust for power? - or the ones asking for proofs before they believe in such tales?

100 39/17c: "- - - Good News - - -". No religion based on war, suppression, and partly on dishonesty is "good news" for anyone but the leaders of the religion, and for the ones who grows rich and/or powerful because of that religion. And, well, yes for the small percent of humans (5 - 10%?) who needs a religion to lean to, but they will be satisfied by any religion they believe in, as it is the belief itself which helps them, not the religion.

101 40/4a: “None can dispute about the Signs of Allah but the Unbelievers”. This may be absolutely correct, though the correct expression may be "are permitted to" not "can":

  1. It is a reason for social extrication in Muslim societies to doubt any word in the Quran.
  2. It is a reason for imprisonment in some Muslim countries to doubt too much or deny belief in the Quran. (March 2008: A woman in Malaysia, Kamariah Ali, was just (2007? AD) sentenced to 2 years of prison for being inconsistent with Islam. The judge, Mohammad Abdullah, told she had committed a grave offence, and that the sentence was in the public interest.)
  3. It is a good reason in some countries and in some societies for being murdered by Muslims if you express too much doubt in the Quran, not to mention in Muhammad - the weak link in the religion (the only claimed witness and not a very holy character).
  4. It still is a reason for death penalty - official or unofficial - in some Muslim areas to doubt too much in the Quran, not to mention to want to leave Islam.
  5. Your marriage is automatically void and ended the moment a Muslim leaves Islam - and not everyone wants to lose his wife or her husband or the mother or father of their children (not to mention lose their children).
  6. Even for non-Muslims it is dangerous to doubt the signs and the Quran - they may be murdered. Islam do not trust the power of the word - with a reason, thinking about all the mistakes and invalid statements, “signs” and “proofs”, etc. in the Quran - and resort to suppression, terror, and murder. It is better to believe in the never proved religion of the fathers, than to try to find out if it really is true. Like Islam says when “hunting” for proselytes: It is difficult to question your (heathen*) deepest beliefs and what you were imprinted as a child". They forget that this also goes for Muslims: Better not to control if what you believe in is right or wrong - and to run the risk of not finding the right religion (if one exists) in time, if Islam is wrong.

Yes, many places only non-Muslims can - or actually are permitted to - discuss or dispute the signs of Islam. And even for us it is so dangerous, that this book cannot be printed unless the printer is very brave, in spite of the book being very down-to-earth and based entirely on the Quran and other central Islamic literature + correct scientific knowledge.

102 40/6e: "- - - truly they (non-Muslims*) are the companions of the Fire!". Not if they believe in a real god - f.x. Yahweh if he is real like both the Bible and the Quran claims (though the Quran wrongly mix him up with Allah*). And especially not so if Allah is a made up god, like all the mistakes in the Quran indicate - no god ever was behind something that full of errors, etc.

103 40/12b: "- - - Allah was invoked as the Only (object of worship), ye (non-Muslims*) did reject Faith (Islam*) - - -". Many had a very good reason for that: They saw that things were seriously wrong in the new religion. And an essential point here is that they not only did not believe in Muhammad, but were so sure that things were wrong, that they refused to bow to him even at horrible costs, included for many their lives.

104 40/50c: "- - - the praying of those without Faith is nothing but (futile wandering) in (mazes of) error!". But are prayers from Muslims any better, as the Quran they believe in, literally are mazes of error, included hundreds of wrong facts, contradictions, etc.?

As for the value of prayers in Islam, also see 62/9c. And if you combine 62/9c with 67/9c - a strong one - you get something thought-provoking. (And relevant here: Muslims often are taught that a question or problem which really can have only one valued solutions, can have 2 or more true and correct solutions - Islam is forced to teach this, because if not many of the mistakes and contradictions in the Quran become too obvious. But this ONLY is true if parallel true solutions are possible. F.x. in cases where 2 or more possible solutions are mutually excluding each other, maximum 1 of the mutually excluding ones can be true. Islam teaches differently. It should be a bit thought provoking for Muslims, that just this "small" difference in theoretical thinking and teaching, was one of the reasons (there were several of course) for why Europe and the West exploded into the Technical Revolution, while the Muslim area stagnated). Two star examples are: 1): Full predestination is not possible even for an omnipotent god to combine with even the smallest piece of free will for man - the two are mutually excluding. Islam is teaching differently. 2): The same for full and unchangeable predestination long time before, combined with any claimed effect of prayers - the two are mutually excluding each other. Islam is teaching differently.)

Another fact: Today it is easy by means of statistical methods to check if prayers have any effect. (Let f.x. 1ooo persons each pray for one among 1ooo unknown persons sick or in other ways in need. compare the result after some time with a similar group of 1ooo who has not been prayed for, and see if there is a difference. If there is a positive difference, this would be a strong indication or perhaps even a proof for something - a proof Islam strongly needs, as it has not any proof for a single of its central claims. But it has not even tried to make such a test. Why?)

105 40/59d: "- - - most men believe not." Wrong. Most men believe. They just do not believe in the Quran, for the very obvious reason that at least many see there are too much wrong in that book - it has no connection to a god.

106 40/69a: "Seest thou (Muhammad?/Muslim?) not those that dispute concerning the Signs of Allah? How they turn away (from reality)?" This is pure, but not intended irony: As there is not one single valid proof or sign for Allah - many claims, but not a single valid one - it is the ones who believe in such claimed "signs" who have no contact with reality.

107 41/23a: "- - - (now) have ye (non-Muslims*) become of those utterly lost!" Only if the Quran is not a made up book, Islam is not a made up religion, and only if the non-Muslim does not believe in a real god - - - and only if there exists a next life.

108 42/23b: "- - - Glad Tidings - - -". Because Islam is a war religion, it is from disturbing to horrible tidings for all non-Muslims. For Muslims it is glad tidings for the ones who grow rich and/or powerful from robbing and suppressing or enslaving or raping fellow human beings, and for persons needing a religion to lean to - but the last ones find the strength they look for in any religion in case they really believe in it, a fact you meet in any religion. But in the end Islam only is glad news also for these ones, only if the Quran is from a god. And no god makes a book with that much wrong contents, and as it is from no god, what will be the tidings for Muslims if there is a next life?

###109 43/22c: "We (non-Muslims*) found our fathers following a certain religion, and we do guide ourselves by their footsteps". This also is the reason for why most Muslims believe in Islam: Taqlid. = Their parents and others have made them believe it is the truth - no real proof has been given them (because such proofs simply have never existed). And few if any Muslim have ever checked if what their fathers believed, could be true.

110 46/31f: "- - - believe in Him (Allah*) - - -". See 46/31b above.

111 46/32e: "- - - such (non-Muslim*) men (Islam is a men's religion*) (wander) in manifest error". Not if the god they believe in - f.x. Yahweh - exists, and especially not if Allah on top of that is a made up god (quite likely, as the Quran is a made up book, or at least not from any god with all its errors).

112 47/9a: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) hate the Revelation of Allah (the Quran) - - -". Some may do so, as they see how dark the Quran is, and that it cannot come from a god with all those errors - and definitely not from a good god with that moral code. But most just wonder what is wrong with the intelligence and nature of man, which make it possible for millions to believe in a book where so much obviously and clearly is so seriously wrong that no god can be involved. And marketed by a man of that quality!

##########113 49/15b: “Only those are Believers who have believed in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*), and have never since doubted, but have striven with their belongings and their persons (= made war*) in the Cause of Allah - - -.” Use your wealth and your life in war for Muhammad/Allah – only then you are a real Muslim. A clear message.

###But how could anybody believe in Muhammad before he was born or started his mission? ########How then could there be Muslims before the time of Muhammad, if only the ones who believed in both Allah and Muhammad are Muslims? Is Muhammad the main person also in "the Mother of the Book" (13/39b, 43/4b-c above, and 85/21-22 below) and thus the main person in the Book Allah reveres (according to Islam - "high in esteem" according to 43/4b-c above), and thus in the copies sent to all the earlier claimed prophets and messengers in spite of that nobody then would understand who the book was talking about?

###114 51/22a: "And in heaven is your (Muslims'/humans'*) Sustenance - - -". There are many claims in the Quran saying Allah is behind your sustenance, and as many telling he is the ruler of Heaven, but all of them are just loose words and as loose claims. Nothing more. And such claims about their gods are normal and usual for religious charlatans and cheaters - normally calling themselves prophets or similar and becoming the well off or/and often powerful leaders of sects, etc. like Islam in reality was in the start, a strongly heretical and apocryphal sect spun off from Jewism and Christianity mixed up with the old Arab paganism (f.x. most of the rituals, jinns, parts of the moral code, etc.) + traces from Persia (f.x. the houris, the handsome servants in Paradise, the bridge at the Day of Doom, etc.) and others. With a claimed holy book strongly apocryphal compared to the mother religions - and likely made up in the same way as other apocryphal texts: Made up to fit the leader's ideas and thinking. Except that in the case of the Quran, the "holy" book may partly or mainly derive from a mental illness (TLE - Temporal Lobe Epilepsy) according to modern medical science - - - or for that case from dark forces if one believe in such - f.x parts of the Quran's moral code may indicate this.

115 57/7b: "Believe in Allah and his Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Why should any sentient being do so when so much is wrong - and even some lies - in their message, the Quran?

116 57/8a: "What cause have ye (non-Muslims*) why ye should not believe in Allah?". Well to mention a few of the reasons:

  1. Not one single claim is proved in Islam - not even the existence of the claimed god, the former pagan god al-Lah.
  2. All the mistaken facts and other mistakes prove 110% and more that the Quran is not from any god - no omniscient god makes such mistakes (which is why Muslims cannot afford to see the mistakes no matter how obvious they are).
  3. All the contradictions have the same 110% effect.

  4. All the invalid logic also has the same 110% effect - so only on these 3 points you have 330% proofs that the Quran is not from a god.
  5. The language many places are unclear or with 2 or more possible ways of understanding a point. No god would use unclear language in his holy book.
  6. A lot of points in the book were difficult or impossible to understand from people not from that region - Arabisms. No universal god would make his holy book in ways not possible for all to understand, unless they were known in a small region of Earth. Humans might make such mistakes, but not an omniscient god.
  7. The horrible and immoral parts of the Quran's moral code may indicate that the real maker of the Quran belongs to some dark forces. Who wants to believe in a religion perhaps made up by f.x. a devil impersonating Gabriel?
  8. The immoral and unethical parts of the ethical code, means a not good and benevolent god.
  9. The parts of sharia which are unjust and/or immoral gives the same thoughts as the sentence above.
  10. The Quran contains not a few cases of boasting or bluffs. Who needs to use bluffs? - the cheat and deceiver, not an omnipotent god.
  11. #####The Quran contains some places where Muhammad is lying. How true is a religion which needs lies? And who needs to use lies? - the cheat and deceiver.
  12. All the points in the Quran where it is used wrong science - science believed in at the time of Muhammad - indicates very clearly that the Quran is made by humans living at the time of Muhammad - perhaps by Muhammad himself. And similar for much of other things and tales told in the Quran.
  13. Islam is a war religion - the claim "the religion of peace" is an al-Taqiyya (a lawful lie) - and who believes a "good and benevolent" god runs a religion of dishonesty, stealing, apartheid, rape, suppression, and war?
  14. The Quran is entirely based on the words of a man with a very doubtful moral - lying, breaking even his oaths, deceiving, stealing, raping, and a lot more - and a man wanting power and riches (for "gifts" to buy more followers and to keep some of the ones he had - clear from central Islamic books) - and not to mention women (one knows the name of 36 women he had more or less regular sex with (see the chapters about Muhammad under www.1000mistakes.com - those are the ones one knows the names of)).

Well, these at least were a few reasons why not to believe in Allah and in Muhammad's religion - at least not until something is proved.

117 57/13h: "- - - without it (outside Islam/the gate of Paradise*), all alongside, will be (Wrath and) Punishment!" Contradicted by the Bible, according to which Islam is a false and made up religion and thus not leading to Paradise, as it addresses another god than Yahweh, and thus a made up god according to that book, and as believers do not believe in and live according to Yahweh's religion. All the mistakes and inhumanities in the Quran may indicate this is correct. Also see 13/1g and 67/9c - 2 strong ones. 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.

118 57/15c: "Your (non-Muslims'*) abode (in the presumed next life*) is the Fire - - -". This only may be true if Allah exists and is a god, if the Quran tells the truth and only the truth, and if you in addition do not believe in a real god. Also see 3/77b above.

119 64/10e: "- - - those who reject Faith - - - will be the companions of the Fire". Often claimed, but never proved. It also only can be correct if Allah exists and in addition is a god - not f.x. something from the dark powers pretending to be a god. For this claim to be correct it also is necessary that the non-Muslims do not believe in another, real god, f.x. Yahweh - a god who according to both the Bible and the Quran has proved both his existence and his power (though the Quran wrongly mixes him up with Yahweh). Allah on the other hand has never been able to prove anything about himself.

120 72/4a: "There are some foolish ones among us (Jinns*), who used to utter extravagant lies against Allah". You had to be foolish not to believe in Muhammad it seems: A never proved argument with a double effect: "All non-Muslims are foolish", and that is the reason why they do not accept Muhammad - the explanation is not that they know or understand things we do not know or are unable to see or understand (which for many was the real reason). And: "We Muslims are the only wise ones", and who does not want to be counted among the wise ones - especially if you are not very wise?

121 72/13a: "- - - since we have listened to the Guidance, we have accepted it - - -". Does this mean that the Quran is so obviously true that you have to believe in it once you listen to it? In that case Muhammad had a very low esteem of his listeners' knowledge and ability to use their brain (perhaps with a reason).

#####122 76/4d: (A76/5): "- - - man's - - - inborn cognition of Allah's existence - - -". This is scientific nonsense. No such inborn cognition has ever been found - even by Islam. Science has found that a small percentage has an inborn longing for something stronger to lean on - a god. But any religion and any god(s) do(es) the job as long as the needy believe in it. But no "inborn cognition" has ever been found. It has been found that small children easily accepts the idea of a god, just like they accept most other things they believe are facts, but there are miles between also this and "inborn cognition of Allah's existence". This claim most likely is a result of Islam's lack of proofs for Allah (and for Muhammad's connection to a god) and its search for "strong" arguments for that Allah must exist in spite of the total lack of valid proofs. You find similar claims on "instinctive knowledge", etc. several places in the Quran and other Islamic literature. Scientifically it is totally wrong and invalid - so much so, that al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie) may be a more correct word than "wrong", as this is so well known that also Muslim scholars have got to know it. It tells something about Islam that they have to stoop to the use of "arguments" like this.

As said: Scientific nonsense.

And also logical nonsense: Why should Allah create such an inborn cognition, and then not make it strong enough to make itself clear?

123 77/50: "Then what Message, after all, will they (non-Muslims*) believe in?" At least in one which possibly can be true, and which possible may come from a real god, and preferably a benevolent one - if such one exists. All the mistakes, contradictions, invalid pieces of logic, etc. in the Quran prove 100% and more that something is seriously wrong with the book, and also at least 110% that it is not from a god - to accuse a god for delivering a quality like in the Quran, is heretics, slander, and an insult against the god. Also the blood and war and suppression and slavery and stealing and lying and in other ways partly immoral moral code, and the partly immoral/unjust laws in the Quran, prove that the book in case represents no good or benevolent god. Whenever there is a difference between reality and rosy words, we believe in the reality. No, it is not possible to believe in a book as full of mistakes like the Quran is, delivered by a clearly unreliable man wanting riches (at least for bribes), power, and women - not unless the message is backed by proofs, and not one single valid proof exists. Not one for Allah. And not one for Muhammad's connection to a god.

124 80/42a: "Such will be the Rejecters of Allah - - -". Yes, but only if there is a god behind the Quran, and only if it in addition is completely true. (And what of Muslims if this is not the case?) And not least: Only if there also is not another, real god (or other real gods) some rejecters of Allah believe in and who invites them to his/their paradise - f.x. Yahweh.

125 85/8c: "- - - Allah - - - Worthy of all Praise!" Please read the surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Muslim moral code, and the unjust/immoral parts of sharia, and see if you agree. Always when there is a distance between words and corresponding demands and deeds and introduced rules, we at least always believe in the demands and deeds and the introduced codes - words are too cheap and easy to use and disuse.

p>126 85/14b: "And He (Allah*) is - - - Full of Loving-Kindness". Please read the surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Muslim moral code, and the unjust/immoral parts of sharia, and see if you agree. Always when there is a distance between words and corresponding demands, deeds and introduced rules, we at least always believe in the demands and deeds and rules - words are too cheap and easy to use and disuse.

127 92/15-16b: "- - - those most unfortunate ones Who give the lie to Truth - - -". = The ones who do not believe in Muhammad and his new religion. But is the Quran the truth?

128 103/2b: "Verily, man is at a loss - - -". Perhaps. But is this the case for non-Muslims (some of which may be believing in real gods - like perhaps Yahweh is) or for Muslims - who believe in a book so full of Mistakes, etc. that there clearly is no god involved?
