fudgy, Asad is a known liar who purposefully re-translated the Quran in a manner to cover all of the errors. Why do you think he is so wildly different than all other translators? Figure it out. You're being lied to so that the integrity of the Quran remains preserved. That's all that's going on. And besides, spouse is the same thing as wife anyway, so I don't even know what your point is anyway. It's stupid.fudgy wrote:LOL. see how is silent on "spouses. " Asad simply slam dunked those who thinks its ok to have sex with slaves. Its evident that such notions are nothing but man made crap.
Asad is doing the same thing that Muslims have been doing for hundreds of years. They change the meaning of the Quran to suit the times. The Quran isn't perfect, Muslims MAKE it so. Just look at the verses of the sun orbiting. At first, Muslims would tell you that it's obviously pointing to the sun orbiting around the earth. Then when Copernicus comes along and tells us the earth orbits the sun, then suddenly Muslims change their story. Now those verse are merely figurative (a common Muslim trick). Then, recent science comes along and tells us that the sun actually does orbit, but it orbits a galaxy. Then, Muslims change their tune again. Now, the verses are suddenly NOT figurative but are literal again, except this time, it's talking about an orbit around the galaxy, even though the Quran never even mentions any concept at all like a galaxy, and it mentions the earth all over the place. But nope. No no no, it's not talking about an orbit around the earth just like everybody thought back then. No no no, it's talking about an orbit around the galaxy. Look at how disgraceful this is. But this is exactly the kind of things Muslims have been doing for hundreds of years, and they don't feel the least bit ashamed at pulling these stunts. It's absolutely amazing. When it comes to religious discussion, I've never seen a group of people more willing to invent, or even outright lie if necessary, even to themselves, in order to justify their religion. It's absolutely disgraceful.
