Fun facts about Islam

Recommended Posts

Quote

*Early Christianity viewed Mohammid as a false prophet; inspired by the devil

 

During the Early Middle Ages, Christendom largely viewed Islam as a Christological heresy and Muhammad as a false prophet. By the Late Middle Ages, Islam was more typically grouped with heathenism, and Muhammad was viewed as inspired by the devil. A more relaxed or benign view of Islam only developed in the modern period, after the Islamic empires ceased to be an acute military threat to Europe. See Orientalism.

 

*The US navy was created to battle Muslim Barbary pirates who repeatedly attacked and enslaved American ships crews 

 

*Jewish and Christian men will burn forever in hell, but their wives will go to paradise to be used as sex slaves for all eternity. O.o

 

*The Koran was only unified into one version around 1925

 

Anymore?

Strange things happened in the olden days.  Certainly, most religions (especially when partially co-located) spent far too much time hating one another.

Happily we live in what is largely a more enlightened time.

It is best to focus on stupidity and intolerance when they've occurred in more recent times.

It isn't as though there aren't plenty of more contemporary examples.

It well overdue a reformation 👍

You can't reform Islam, the Quran specifically.

The bible is a collection of stories about man's interaction with god, they only real instruction in there directly from God himself is the 10 commandments, the interpretation of the bible is free game. 

The Quran is the literal word of God, you can't change or pick and choose which bits count and which don't. 

Not that I agree with interpretation of the bible, you either accept it all (not shellfish and no clothes from mixed materials) or none of it.

No alcohol and no pork. I couldn't do Islam.

Nor could Russia!

The Primary Chronicle reports that in the year 987, after consultation with his boyars, Vladimir the Great sent envoys to study the religions of the various neighboring nations whose representatives had been urging him to embrace their respective faiths. The result is described by the chronicler Nestor. Of the Muslim Bulgarians of the Volga the envoys reported there is no gladness among them, only sorrow and a great stench. He also reported that Islam was undesirable due to its taboo against alcoholic beverages and pork.[23] Vladimir remarked on the occasion: "Drinking is the joy of all Rus'. We cannot exist without that pleasure."[24] Ukrainian and Russian sources also describe Vladimir consulting with Jewish envoys and questioning them about their religion, but ultimately rejecting it as well, saying that their loss of Jerusalem was evidence that they had been abandoned by God.

The wahabbis *are* the reformation - smashing statues, demolishing buildings, sola scriptura, puritanism, wearing black

Good point. It fits the pattern of the 500 year time lag also.
