Introduction

PREFACE & CONTENTS

Since http://www.1000mistakes.com was first posted on the Internet in spring 2008, it has become a central reference book. But there still are many who do not know about it. Please post the addresses http://www.1000mistakes.com on all your debate pages, information pages, and other relevant pages on the net - the pages you use, the pages you know about, and the pages you come across. Not for the benefit of us, but for the benefit of the ones who may need or want some of the enormous amount of information in this page. Information - quotes - not even Islam claims are wrong (even though they dislike what the quotes tell about the religion). The information may benefit:

Muslims unsure about Islam.

Muslims thinking about leaving Islam.

Muslims looking for facts concerning Islam.

Muslims trying in rational ways to evaluate their religion.

Non-Muslims thinking about converting to Islam.

Non-Muslims seeking information about Islam.

Non-Muslims debating with Muslims - Muslims f.x. sometimes are not always 100% honest in such debates.

Politicians and others meeting Muslims in daily life or job.

As for debate pages, the address should be mentioned every now and then (once a fortnight? - once a month each place?), because as new "letters" are posted, they "cover up" a posted address, and it drifts into oblivion if it is not repeated. AND EVEN IF YOU HAVE THIS AS AN E-BOOK, PLEASE USE http://1000mistakes.com ON THE NET AT LEAST NOW AND THEN. "HITS" MAKE THE PAGE STAY HIGH UP ON GOOGLE, YAHOO, AND THE OTHERS, AND THUS MAKE IT EASIER TO SEE FOR PEOPLE NOT KNOWING THIS PAGE - AND THERE AS SAID STILL ARE MANY WHO MAY BENEFIT FROM THIS BIG SOURCE OF CORRECT INFORMATION ABOUT THE QURAN, BUT WHO STILL HAVE NOT DISCOVERED THE PAGE.

At the time of writing just this (21. Aug. 10), we have up to between 6ooo and 7ooo hits a day - yesterday f.x. 6611 hits. The average of course is lower, but all the same we reach a lot of people. With your help we may reach a lot more - this is information which should reach as many as possible.

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

This book will be more or less the same as "1000+ Comments on the Quran", but that book had its contents listed according to the verse numbers in the Quran. But the Quran is very helter-skelter written, and difficult to use for anybody not knowing the book well. Because of that we are working to sort the points and verses according to themes, so that it will be much easier to find what one needs or looks for in this book.

This work will take some time, but during our work some interesting facts emerged, and facts so central in debates and claims from Muslims - in debates and even in madrasas (religious schools), schools, and mosques, etc. - that we found we wanted to publish it before the book really is ready. Normally we do not upload a book until it is complete, but because of this we this time will upload the texts as the different main chapters - "Parts" - are ready.

Beware that as the comments here simply is picked from "1000+ Comments on the Quran - skeptics' facts and thoughts", similar points may have rather similar comments. ALSO BEVARE THAT THE REFERENCES TO OTHER POINTS IN THE QURAN MAINLY ARE TO THAT BOOK, SO THAT MOSTLY YOU WILL HAVE TO GO TO THAT BOOK TO FIND THEM.

NB! NB! FOR THE BENEFIT OF THOSE WHO DO NOT ONLY NEED THE INFORMATION ABOUT SOMETHING, BUT ALSO WANT TO KNOW THE DIFFERENT PLACES WHERE TO FIND IT, WE IN MANY CHAPTERS QUOTE EACH TIME, OR AT LEAST MANY OF THE TIMES THE PIECE OF INFORMATION, CLAIM, OR WHATEVER APPEARS (####BUT BEWARE THAT HARDLY ANY OF OUR LISTS ARE COMPLETE - IF YOU GO LOOKING, YOU MAY FIND RELEVANT STUFF MORE PLACES, SOMETIMES MANY MORE). THIS IS THE REASON FOR THE MANY AND PERHAPS BORING REPETITIONS IN THIS BOOK. For things repeated very many times in the Quran, we only repeat it some times, though - f.x. the wrong claim that there are 7 heavens (the word "heavens" in plural is used some 200 times in the Quran!) we only mention some places.

Chapters 1 - 3: THREE STRONG PROOFS:

CONTENTS:

Chapter 01: MUHAMMAD UNABLE TO MAKE FORETELLINGS/PROPHESIES. Either Muhammad or Islam/Muslims lie about prophesies from Muhammad.

Chapter 02: MUHAMMAD UNABLE TO MAKE MIRACLES - either Muhammad or Islam/Muslims lie about miracles claimed made by Muhammad.

Chapter 03: THE TEXTS IN THE QURAN ARE TO BE UNDERSTOOD LITERALLY WHEN NORHING ELSE IS INDICATED. Either Muhammad or Islam/Muslims lie about clear texts being allegories, etc. or not in the Quran.

Note that the letters behind many of the verse numbers refer to the comment numbers in the "1000+ Comments on the Quran, Book F", ####and you very often must look there to find it.

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

THESE 3 PROOFS ONLY PROVE THINGS MUSLIM SCHOLARS HAVE KNOWN FOR CENTURIES AND MORE, BUT WHICH MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS ARE UNAWARE OF PARTLY BECAUSE THEY ARE TOLD DISHONEST TALES - DISHONESTY IS NOT A SIN IN ISLAM IF NEEDED TO DEFEND OR PROMOTE THE RELIGI0N. FOR ONE THING THERE ARE THINGS LIKE AL-TAQIYYA (THE LAWFUL LIE), KITMAN (THE LAEFUL HALF-TRUTH), HILAH (THE LAWFUL PRETENDING/CIRCUMVENTING), ETC. WHICH SHOULD BE USED "IF NECESSARY" FOR DEFENCE OR PROMOTION OF ISLAM. AND THEN THERE ARE DECEIT, BETRAYAL, ETC. WHICH IS OK TO USE BECAUSE MUHAMMAD USED IT, AND THEN IT IS MORALLY OK. AND NOT TO FORGET THE VERY LAWFUL DISUSE OF WORDS/PROMISES/OATHS - PAY EXPIATION AFTERWARDS IF NECESSARY (2/225, 5/89, 16/91, 66/2). AND AS DISHONESTY IS NO SIN IN SUCH CASES, MUSLIMS ARE TOLD ENGAGING TALES ABOUT MUHAMMAD'S FORETELLINGS/PROPHESIES AND MIRACLES - TALES CLAIMED TO PROVE HIS CONNECTION TO ALLAH. AND MUSLIMS ARE TOLD AS CLEARLY WRONG TALES ABOUT THAT THERE ARE NO MISTAKES OR WEAK SPOTS IN THE QURAN'S TEXTS, AS ALL ERRORS AND BLACK POINTS JUSTS ARE CLAIMED TO BE ALLEGORIES, ETC., AND MEAN SOMETHING DIFFERENT FROM WHAT IT SAYS - SOMETHING MUCH MORE CORRECT THAN ALLAH WAS ABLE TO TELL IN HIS QURAN EVEN THOUGH HE IS CLAIMED TO BE AN OMNISCIENT GOD AND TRIED TO EXPLAIN EVERYTHING IN DETAIL AND IN A SIMPLE AND EASY TO UNDERSTAND LITERAL LANGUAGE.

IN A WAY MOST REPULSIVE AND MORALLY MOST DISGUSTING IS THE DISUSE OF ALL THE MADE UP TALES ABOUT MUHAMMAD'S PROPHESIES AND MIRACLES, BECAUSE IT IS SUCH A WELL KNOWN FACT IN ISLAM THAT MUHAMMAD WAS UNABLE TO DO SUCH THINGS, THAT THERE DOES NOT EXIST ONE SINGLE ISLAMIC LEADER OR IMAM OR MULLAH WITH A MINIMUM OF STUDY BEHIND HIM, WHO DOES NOT KNOW HE IS LYING EACH TIME HE IS "PROVING" MUHAMMAD'S CONNECTION TO ALLAH, BY TELLING ABOUT HIS MIRACLES AND PROPHESIES.

WELL, EACH TIME HE IS "PROVING" MUHAMMAD BY CLAIMING MUHAMMAD MADE FORETELLINGS, HE AT THE SAME TIME TELLS THAT MUHAMMAD LIED AT LEAST 8 PLACES IN THE QURAN - THE PLACES MUHAMMAD SAID HE WAS UNABLE TO "KNOW THE UNKNOWN", "KNOW THE UNSEEN" OR SIMILAR EXPRESSIONS. AND EACH TIME A MUSLIM TELLS MUHAMMAD MADE MIRACLES, HE IN THE SAME WAY IS CONFIRMING THAT MUHAMMAD LIED ABOUT THIS AT LEAST 5 PLACES IN THE QURAN.

BUT IN A WAY POINT 3 IS NOT MUCH BETTER, BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY PLACES - AT LEAST 30 - WHERE THE BOOK TELLS DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, BUT CLEARLY, THAT IT USES A PLAIN AND STRAIGHT LANGUAGE WITHOUT HIDDEN MEANINGS - ALLEGORIES, PARABLES, METAPHORS, ETC. - UNLESS EXPRESSEDLY SAID SO. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE EVEN FOR A MULLAH OR AN IMAM TO READ THE QURAN WITHOUT SEEING AT LEAST SOME OF THESE PLACES. BUT DISHONESTY IS AN INTEGRATED PART OF THE QURAN'S TEACHING, AND WISHFUL THINKING IS STRONG.

WHEN DID YOU THE LAST TIME HEAR ISLAM TELL THAT "ISLAM IS THE RELIGION OF HONESTY"?

THUS OUR 3 PROOFS ARE ABOUT SOMETHING VERY WELL KNOWN TO ISLAM AND TO MUSLIM SCHOLARS - BUT WHICH IS UNKNOWN TO ALL TOO MANY LAY MUSLIMS. NOW WE HAVE FOUND THESE 3 VERY STRONG PROOFS PROVING WHAT IS THE TRUTH ABOUT THESE POINTS - PROOFS FROM THE VERY QURAN ITSELF, AND PROOFS SO SIMPLE THAT ANY MUSLIM OR NON-MUSLIM CAN UNDERSTAND THEM. AND PROOFS SO EASY TO CHECK ON, THAT ANYBODY CAN CHECK THAT THEY ARE TRUE.
