Re: Why did Muhammad not stand up to have a pee?

In the book, "After Hardship Cometh Ease" (book about the intersection of legal development in early Islam, and how it's related to Judaism and the Talmud), there was a large discussion on just this issue. The Muslims claimed that the sit to pee is due to a Jewish law that states you shoul...

Re: MEP tells it as it is, Left recoils in horror.

Nope, cuz they know the right is right, and there's nothing they can do to defend Islam.

Re: fear is the cement of Islam

I think one can probably say, at least as a first approximation, that as time has passed religions have progressed towards Enlightenment values. Although Islam post-dates Christianity its attitudes pre-date it by many centuries. This, I think, betrays it as a barely changed sect of Arabian polythei...

Thank you for the birthday wishes. It's been very stressful here, my parents both in and out of hospital since Christmas. Glad I have friends to talk to though.

Re: Quranic composition and modern scholarship

Very interesting. That is close to what my own researches have shown. Reading Christmas in the Koran, it seems more than likely that Qur'anic ideas are entirely Persian in nature. Even the concept of naskh is Zoroastrian.

Re: Is voting in the West affected by ignorance of Islam?

Yes I think it was exported from the US. Their New Left has been truly horrible. Unfortunately, it's the orthodoxy for now. Social justice, BLM, and other junk is a direct result. As for Vietnam, it was the media involvement of the war that changed the "hearts and minds" of American citize...

Re: Rape in the Cave of Hira: Speculations on the Origin of

Even Western scholarship on women and Islam, acknowledges that Khadijah was an exception, a figurehead in some Once-upon-a-time, Edenic, Golden Age, which no longer exists.

Re: Wearing Mental Turbans: Islam and Spain

Thanks Ibn Rushd - a breath of fresh air on a putrid matter that I always wondered about. I was looking up some book reviews in journals to see what others have said of these books. Since a couple are so new, it might not be until next year before we see more of it. But I found one by Thomas Madden...
