  2. Your god, per the bible, is described a murderous, vindictive, rather ignorant being that works with its supposed archenemy. Happily, it’s not real. I wouldn’t want a universe with such a petty thing in control either, and if it were real, I’d still not worship it. I have better morals than that.

      • darn, one more theist who thinks this is clever “Oh and please explain your objective criteria your opinion is based on please.”

        I don’t need some god to get criteria from, and I’m quite happy to have subjective criteria that can change and get better.

        As for the qu’ran no better than the bible, both books advocate for violence against non-believers. Both are very fearful religions since they can’t abide someone showing that they are wrong. Just like Christians, you pick and choose what you want to believe in it, and you have apologists just like Christians, trying to explain away the violence and ignorance in your supposed “holy” book.

        We have the same lies about how nonbelievers are of Satan “Those who believe, fight in the cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Satan. So fight you against the friends of Satan. Ever feeble indeed is the plot of Satan.”

        We also have the conversion at the end of a sword “But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practise regular charity, then open the way for them: for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.”

        The Qu’ran doesn’t have as much violence per page since it is shorter than the bible.

        Like the bible, the qu’ran also has some words about peace in it. Both are contradictory works.

      • They are words of reason, patrobin. I’d still not worship your god since it is demonstrably ignorant and vicious, if the bible is true. Your morality is nothing more than might equals right.

        Happily, humans do have will, and yep, it is the enemy of your ignorant beliefs since you desperately need obedience and ignorance for your religion to exist. You want to believe that your god exists. Anyone who questions you is a threat to you.

        There is no evidence for your god nor any reason to believe in it. Christians use the same “reasons” that most, if not all, theists use for why they worship their gods e.g. “See the universe? My god created it.” And they have the same evidence for that god: none. None of the essential events in the bible can be shown true, just like the events in the qu’ran, etc.

        You are right however that you have the freedom to choose to worship Him or not, in fact I believe it is the same God you hate that gave you the ability to refuse his guidance.

        I’m not going to lessen God by answering your hate-filled tirade against Him as though there is some desperation to get you believe, again that is your choice, I can only encourage you to drink in the wisdom contained in his Word and consider its teachings with an open mind and heart.

      • Nope, no anger toward your god, since it is imaginary. But theists do find that they choose to make this false claim often, since you have to try to ignore any arguments made by an atheist by claiming they are just emotional.

        Now where does your holy book say anyone has a choice?

        If your god can be “lessened” by you answering questions, you don’t have much of hooses who can accept it and who can’t (Romans 9). a god. As for “hate-filled tirade”, I’m sure it’s much easier to lie about that than to admit that there are points you are afraid to address.

      Darn, one more atheist who thinks he’s “edgy” and that being an arrogant jack@$$ equals being smart. Anyways its not clever just obvious to anyone that you have to have objective criteria and that the world does not run on clubschadenfreude’s feelings. My apologies that everyone does not subject themselves to your menstrual cycle. Nice strawman, but I did not once say you need God to have a set of morals (known as fitra in Islam) I am saying other than your whims (which change and move when you get refuted because its easier to do this than admit to being wrong) how are you determining what is right and wrong? The Quran does not have your issues you listed above as being:

      murderous
      vindictive
      rather ignorant being that works with its supposed archenemy.

      We do NOT believe these things anb IF you check the blog criticize them QUITE frequently. You’re taking the Christian concept of God and saying ALL religions believe this when its not true.

      Moving on to your points,

      1. Quran and violence

      Not really you just haven’t read it and don’t know what you’re talking about. You have a handful of passages talking about a war with the Prophet’s(saw) tribe. Again if you read it you would know this basic.

      2. Can’t shown to be wrong

      Can’t speak for Christianity but we just can’t be shown to be wrong.

      3. Picking and choosing beliefs
      Uhhh… no? Unlike Christianity we have set things YOU must believe in order to be a Muslim this ain’t a buffet.

      4. Surah Tauba

      Since you took about a whole 10 seconds on Google to quote the verse like you know it let’s do a simple refutation for giggles.

      1. Instead of talking from our butts let’s read:

      9:1. ˹This is the˺ cut off by God and His Messenger from the treaties you’ve made with those who equate others ˹with Him˺.
      9:2. Hang around in the land for four months, but keep in mind that you will never escape God, and that God will disgrace and humiliate those who’ve disbelieved.
      9:3. This is a proclamation from God and His Messenger, TO THE PEOPLE ON THE DAY OF THE HAJJ ˹pilgrimage˺. God is free from any commitment to the pagans, and so is His Messenger. If you repent now, it’s better for you. But if you decide to turn away, then be aware that you can never frustrate God’s will. So give the ones who disbelieve the ‘congratulations’ of a painful punishment.
      9:4. As for those who have honored the treaty you made with them and have not supported anyone against you, fulfill your agreement with them to the end of their terms because God loves those who are god fearing.
      9:5. When the forbidden months are over you may kill the idol worshippers wherever they’re encountered. Arrest, surround and wait for them at every checkpoint, ˹but˺ if they repent, establish prayer and give charity, let them go on their way because God is Most Forgiving and Forever Merciful.
      9:6. If any of the pagans seeks your protection, grant it to them so that they can hear God’s Word. Then take them to a place where they feel comfortable and safe because they’re people that didn’t know.
      9:7. How can there be a treaty with God and His Messenger with people who equate others ˹with Him˺? As for the ones who you made a treaty with at the Kaaba, you are to stand by it as long they stand by it, because God loves those who are mindful of Him.
      9:8. How, when whenever they’ve had any opportunity to advance against you or have gained the upper hand, they do not respect any courtesies with you? They only try to flatter you with what their mouths utter, but their hearts are against you and most of them are corrupt.
      9:9. They have sold God’s revelations for a small price, and blocked themselves and others from His path. Have no doubts about this, what they do is evil.
      9:10. They would show no courtesy or regard whenever believers were concerned, whether it was the norms of being family or treaties. They are the ones who are committing the aggression.
      9:11. If they repent, establish prayer and give charity , then they’re your brothers in faith. I will explain these verses in detail for people who are willing to learn.
      9:12. However if they violate their treaty once they’ve agreed to it and insult your religion, then fight the leaders of disbelief so that they stop because their promises mean nothing to them,.
      9:13. How can you not fight a people who’ve broken their word, tried to drive out the Messenger, and attacked you first? Do you fear them? It’s God you should fear if you’re people with true faith.
      9:14. Fight them! God will punish them by your hands and humiliate them! He will help you against them and heal what’s in the chest of people who believe,
      9:15. by removing the anger and frustration from their hearts. God accepts whoever He wishes into His mercy because God is the All knowing and the One who passes Judgement.

      When I last checked you are not one of the people standing on the day of the Hajj pilgrimage and have not formed a treaty with the Prophet Muhammad(saw). As opposed to cherry-picking “big ol scary” verse 5-6 by simply reading as it says in verse 11 God will explain the context of what He’s talking about. This is a message to a specific group of people that betrayed their treaties with the Prophet(saw) Muhammad and the early Muslim community. As you can see it has nothing to do with you. However as a final not, war is a part of the human experience and so yes we have rules and regulations about what is and what is not acceptable conduct. So this actually acts as proof FOR our book not against it. Thank you.

      • No, it is not “obvious” that anyone has to have objective criteria to judge something. We have theists who constantly change what their god really wants, so the claims of their god being an objective source of morality or anything are false. That theists don’t agree, even in within their own religions, shows that none of you have any objective ground to stand on.
        So, I’m a guy and I have a menstrual cycle? Tsk, what a failure you are.
        You didn’t have to literally claim one has to have a god to have objective morals, and yep, they are called fitra. I know that is what you believe. And nice false claim that my “whims” change. Please do show where that happened. Or are you lying?
        Islam is a version of Judaism and Christianity, with one more group of humans desperate to imagine that their version is the right one. I mentioned Christianity and now I’m mentioning Islam. The Christian god works with its supposed archenemy. That is not true in Islam.
        Like Christians, you try to ignore the parts of the qu’ran you don’t like and try to reinterpret them to excuse your book from being what it is, a book written by ignorant men, just like the bible. You want to claim that the verses I mentioned were “only” about a war with a tribe, but funny how other Muslims say you are wrong. Like Christans, you don’t agree and again show you have no truth. I did read the qu’ran and I knew the excuse you would offer.
        You can be shown to be wrong since you can’t support your claims and the rather silly claims of the qu’ran. If one reads the qu’ran, then you know that it makes a lot of the same silly claims as the bible, having come from it. It does have its own though. The moon was never split.
        It’s not hard to find verses that show you wrong, or at lease attempting to cover up what the qu’ran says
        2:1 Alif. Lam. Mim.
        2:2 This is the Scripture whereof there is no doubt, a guidance unto those who ward off (evil).
        2:3 Who believe in the Unseen, and establish worship, and spend of that We have bestowed upon them;
        2:4 And who believe in that which is revealed unto thee (Muhammad) and that which was revealed before thee, and are certain of the Hereafter.
        2:5 These depend on guidance from their Lord. These are the successful.
        2:6 As for the Disbelievers, Whether thou warn them or thou warn them not it is all one for them; they believe not.
        2:7 Allah hath sealed their hearing and their hearts, and on their eyes there is a covering. Theirs will be an awful doom.
        2:8 And of mankind are some who say: We believe in Allah and the Last Day, when they believe not.
        2:9 They think to beguile Allah and those who believe, and they beguile none save themselves; but they perceive not.
        2:10 In their hearts is a disease, and Allah increaseth their disease. A painful doom is theirs because they lie.
        2:11 And when it is said unto them: Make not mischief in the earth, they say: We are peacemakers only.
        2:12 Are not they indeed the mischief-makers ? But they perceive not.
        2:13 And when it is said unto them: believe as the people believe, they say: shall we believe as the foolish believe ? are not they indeed the foolish ? But they know not.
        2:14 And when they fall in with those who believe, they say: We believe; but when they go apart to their devils they declare: Lo! we are with you; verily we did but mock.
        2:15 Allah (Himself) doth mock them, leaving them to wander blindly on in their contumacy.
        2:16 These are they who purchase error at the price of guidance, so their commerce doth not prosper, neither are they guided.
        2:17 Their likeness is as the likeness of one who kindleth fire, and when it sheddeth its light around him Allah taketh away their light and leaveth them in darkness, where they cannot see,
        2:18 Deaf, dumb and blind; and they return not.
        2:19 Or like a rainstorm from the sky, wherein is darkness, thunder and the flash of lightning. They thrust their fingers in their ears by reason of the thunder-claps, for fear of death, Allah encompasseth the disbelievers (in His guidance, His omniscience and His omnipotence).
        2:20 The lightning almost snatcheth away their sight from them. As often as it flasheth forth for them they walk therein, and when it darkeneth against them they stand still. If Allah willed, He could destroy their hearing and their sight. Lo! Allah is able to do all things.
        2:21 O mankind! worship your Lord, Who hath created you and those before you, so that ye may ward off (evil).
        2:22 Who hath appointed the earth a resting-place for you, and the sky a canopy; and causeth water to pour down from the sky, thereby producing fruits as food for you. And do not set up rivals to Allah when ye know (better).
        2:23 And if ye are in doubt concerning that which We reveal unto Our slave (Muhammad), then produce a surah of the like thereof, and call your witness beside Allah if ye are truthful.
        2:24 And if ye do it not – and ye can never do it – then guard yourselves against the Fire prepared for disbelievers, whose fuel is of men and stones.

        And the rest is here: http://www.skepticsannotatedbible.com/quran/2/index.htm#6 We can look at this “7 Allah hath sealed their hearing and their hearts, and on their eyes there is a covering. Theirs will be an awful doom.” And then look at this “7:41 Theirs will be a bed of hell, and over them coverings (of hell). Thus do We requite wrong-doers.” To see a rather pathetic god that intentionally sends people to hell for no action of their own.

        Having rules for wars, as you acknowledge that humans have always had, is no proof for your nonsense being true. Just like it is not proof for Christianity being true.

    jesus’ evil actions could have easily gotten hundreds of innocent jews slaughtered.

    he is USING VIOLENCE against a people who would have GONE back doing the money exchange because torah requires that.

    “They could have been charging too much and \ or they could have been too close to the temple itself and caused defilement.”

    so you allow jesus to use terroristic violence against people who were TOLD WHAT to do? which law in torah allows a shut down of torah mandate especially at most busy time of the year?

    “The meccans allowed Mohammed to preach and pray at the Kaaba.”

    when they start persecuting him heavily they were allowing him to preach at the kaaba? but compare to jesus, he PERSECUTES a jewish people for DOING what GOD MANDATED. he USES VIOLENCE on people who were simply JUST WORKERS who were obeying orders .

    ” In return Mohammed was plotting to make alliances with Medinan tribes so he could wage war against the Meccans. All for a pile of old stones. Blood for dust you could say.”

    “all for a pile of old stones”

    notice how a crosstian starts thinking like an atheist when it comes to muhammad, but when we ask the athiests about jesus’ violence at the temple, they say :

    In an age of slavery, widespread infanticide, massive human rights violations, etc., Jesus is most angry about a few people making money by exchanging currency in the Temple? That seems like a highly trivial matter for God on Earth to become so upset about.

      Mohammed left Mecca after forming alliances with tribes in Medina who became Muslims. After this the Meccans tried to kill him because they knew he would not stop until he had taken over complete control of Mecca. Up to this point in time he had always had a protector until his uncle died.

      He knew that he had to leave Mecca and build a power base in Medina which would be strong enough to wage war against the Meccans.

      His first tactic was to attack the trade caravans of the Meccans. This was just the opening gambit.

    it doesnt matter if it is “false accusation”
    We have seen that jesus has violent purpose and he is not come to BRING peace but a sword ….so acts could be preserving an authentic tradition about jesus violence against the temple.

    if i were to come into erASSMus’ church and TRASHED everything there and drive out the congregation using a whip because i did not like the idea of selling and buying , i should not be called a vandal , but a man of love and peace.

    when john tells his READERS that jesus MADE a whip, his readers would OBVIOUDLY HAVE UNDERSTOOD how jesus Accomplished the DRIVING OUT OF THE BUYERS-SELLERS-ANIMALS

    they would know what DAMAGE WHIPS did

    jesus was fulfilling yhwhs violence in psalm 69

    “The OT spoke against all these things. ”

    where does the ot allow one to CARRY out the VANDALISM jesus did in a high holy place? his sacrilegious act would have DISGUSTED those poor PILGRIMS who came to BUY an animal

    think about it. they came from long distances , went to purchase an ANIMAL only to find out they would be driven out by a whip. this WOULD BE against torah.

    jesus’ oppression against these people doing business in PEACEFUL way should disgust you.

    “Jesus didn’t come to put a plaster on the wound but to cause healing at the source of all evil. ”

    yes, your pagan religion MIXES love and violence.

    “n the human heart itself.”

    You dont need to trash their property arsehole. Neither do you need to cause disruption in holy place.

    “Mohammed left Mecca after forming alliances with tribes in Medina who became Muslims. ”

    whats the problem?

    “fter this the Meccans tried to kill him because they knew he would not stop until he had taken over complete control of Mecca. ”

    first paste the narration, BITCH

    then prove your “they knew he would nkt stop until he had taken over complete control….

    From a torah perspective what is wrong with CLEANING a place of idolatry?

    “Up to this point in time he had always had a protector until his uncle died.

    He knew that he had to leave Mecca and build a power base in Medina which would be strong enough to wage war against the Meccans.”

    First post the narration, BITCH and tell me what is wrong with creating a “power base”
    And “waging war” from a torah perspective.

      “I am an atheist in relation to Allah and all other gods that men dream up.”

      Oh really? So I guess you don’t believe in the one Jesus(as) worshipped:

      https://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?t=kjv&strongs=h426

      If you reject gods people dream up then there is no way you would be worshipping Jesus(as) God’s creation.

      Next, you seem to have selective memory so allow me to repost:

      1. You seem to have ignored the part about Joshua’s(as) alleged genocide for a piece of land could you clarify that for everyone?

      2. You have absolutely no proof for what you said about Jesus(as) and the money lenders. All you have is they were going about their legal business and he flipped over their tables and hurt people.

      The Jews allowed him to preach and pray at the Temple. In return, because they didn’t want to follow him and didn’t (and still don’t) believe him to be the Messiah he attacked them which caused them to go to the rightful authorities. Speaking of which using your logic he should be grateful that the Romans allowed him to preach and pray at the Temple. In return, Jesus was then making alliances with the Zealots, Judean officials such as tax collectors, John’s(as) followers and the general Jewish population to wage war against the Sanhedrin and the Romans. Blood for dust you could say indeed.

  10. “Probably they should have carried on their business but outside the temple precincts.”

    Why? in what way will currency exchange and selling animal (all which was required by yhwh) make problem ?
    the exchange is required to remember that god does not like images. The selling of animals is to remember what god required. These exchanges only make one remember their god , not monetary gain.

    your god ruined peaceful business in REMEMBRANCE of yhwh because he did not like the idea of doing TORAH MANDATED business. if anything, ur god has a problem with precepts of yhwh.

    “In an age of slavery, widespread infanticide, massive human rights violations, etc., Jesus is most angry about a few people making money by exchanging currency in the Temple? That seems like a highly trivial matter for God on Earth to become so upset about.”

    “The OT spoke against all these things. ”

    jesus was busy getting angry with torah mandate.

    “Jesus didn’t come to put a plaster on the wound but to cause healing at the source of all evil. ”

    how is exchanging money evil ? Plus, why attack a torah MANDATED practice ? Plus, why attack the workers? They were working for their bosses.

    “In the human heart itself”

    how does physically attacking people and breaking torah mandate change “human heart” ?

    how does POINTLESS violence gain? They would go back doing the exchanges because torah mandated it. they would go back selling animals because torah mandated it.

    he is using POINTLESS oppression on poor people . vandalising property, using a whip to drive out people.

    • again this would be a time of the year which would be busy. Romans would be preparing to hack these poor people if their is any disturbance. jesus’ terroristic attack on temple would have caused the deaths of hundreds of innocent buyers and sellers. you should be ashamed of jesus’ acts which go against the torah. remember if jesus thought it was good to vandalise then similar minded jews would have thought it good enough to vandalise him.
