So, for those of you who think I'm against just Christianity - think again. First of all, it is called "The Glorious Koran" and "The Noble Koran". Also, it is said more times that I can count that Allah is so merciful. Lets take a closer look. Oh, and please be advised that I'm only about 5 pages in, so I have a ways to go: SÂ´rah al-Fatihah: 1. In the name of Allah,2 the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful. 2. [All] praise is [due] to Allah, Lord of the worlds â€“ 3. The Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful, 4. Sovereign of the Day of Recompense 5. It is You we worship and You we ask for help. 6. Guide us to the straight path â€“ 7. The path of those upon whom You have bestowed favor, not of those who have evoked [Your] anger or of those who are astray. Ok, we have that. Now lets move on: From SÂ´rah al-Baqarah: 6. Indeed, those who disbelieve â€“ it is all the same for them whether you warn them or do not warn them â€“ they will not believe. 7. Allah has set a seal upon their hearts and upon their hearing, and over their vision is a veil. And for them is a great punishment. So, let me get this straight. Allah HAS SET A SEAL UPON THEIR HEARTS AND THEIR HEARING. Am I to understand that this is implying that Allah HAS CONTROL over someone's belief? And then THEIR PUNISHMENT IS GREAT for not believing? Blades, we're at the beginning of the book. Moving on: 10. In their hearts is disease, so Allah has increased their disease and for them is a painful punishment because they [habitually] used to lie. 15. [But] Allah mocks them and prolongs them in their transgression [while] they wander blindly. 16. Those are the ones who have purchased error [in exchange] for guidance, so their transaction has brought no profit, nor were they guided. 17. Their example is that of one who kindled a fire, but when it illuminated what was around him, Allah took away their light and left them in darkness [so] they could not see. I'll get off of that for now. 30. And [mention, O Muhammad], when your Lord said to the angels, "Indeed, I will make upon the earth a successive authority."17 They said, "Will You place upon it one who causes corruption therein and sheds blood, while we declare Your praise and sanctify You?" He [Allah] said, "Indeed, I know that which you do not know." Allah creates Satan so he (Allah) can be seen in a good light. What follows is the Adam and Eve story. But after that: 62. Indeed, those who believed and those who were Jews or Christians or Sabeans [before Prophet MuÃºammad ()] â€“ those [among them] who believed in Allah and the Last Day and did righteousness â€“ will have their reward with their Lord, and no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve. Those are the promises. Every verse kisses Allah's ass - put him on this huge pedestal. I'll stop here, because I can't find what I was looking for. I was looking for the part where it said something like, "Do not kill another human being - UNLESS ALLAH APPROVES". I think we're getting a picture. As I read more of this book, I will post updates. Thanks for reading, and fuck ALL religions.
