Uh ohh. I'm in trouble now.
13, You worship a rock and are determined to make the whole world worship your rock.
There is something very frightening about a world in which millions of people will play stinkbug, with their buts in the air, several times a day, pointing towards a small meteorite that fell thousands of years ago -
It illustrates that millions of people can be duped into believing anything - and when that belief is without reason, you have millions of robots who will do whatever they are told.
[xx]. You envy all male infidels because of their large penises. Especially Americans. Janet Reno included.
Apparently, this POS thing floats. Some pumice chipped from the remains of a Roman bathhouse perhaps?
^ Khaled Mashal, Hamas
s leader, after Madwoman Halfbright and Burr Hussein Crinton nixed the Israeli execution attempt. He likes the pretty rock.
Thanks these are great! :)
Give the Taliban a break...
If all bars served no alcohol and all the women were covered from head to toe in a Burqa, you’d want to strap a bomb on yourself too.
Daylight come and me wan' go home.
14. You’d rather have your daughter raped than have an education.
15. You’d rather rape your daughter than let your brothers do it first.
You think an assault with fifty men and machine guns against a US Stryker Brigade may be successful.
ok i ll bite. what is he looking at?
You 'n me both.
he’s looking at what’s in Mecca — a black meteorite that the M’s worship
meaning that little window is looking in at the metoerite in the black tent that they walk around? how big is it?
And then stone her to death for being “unclean.”
“...the meteorite in the black tent that they walk around? how big is it?”
It appears to be the size of a bar of soap. Can you imagine the game of “keep away” they could have with it? God forbid one of them should let it fall to the ground.
17. Your mother would be happier if you blew up into a million pieces.
i thought it was a lot bigger, its only as big as a bar of soap?
whats it called?
Muslims believe (without proof) that the revered “black stone” (Alhajar Al-Aswad) is a special divine meteorite, that pre-dates creation that fell at the foot of Adam and Eve. It is presently embedded in the southeastern corner of the Kaba. Muslims touch and kiss the black stone during Hajj but non-Muslims are strictly forbidden to even touch it.
The stone has been attacked many times and is now composed of several pieces and fragments, bound together by a silver ligature. It is semicircular and measures about ten inches horizontally and twelve inches vertically. Here a woman and her husband touch the stone.
more intersting history of the stone:
“Before Muhammad appeared, the Kaaba was surrounded by 360 idols, and every Arab house had its god. Arabs also believed in jinn (subtle beings), and some vague divinity with many offspring. Among the major deities of the pre-Islamic era were al-Lat (”the Goddess”), worshiped in the shape of a square stone; al-Uzzah (”the Mighty”), a goddess identified with the morning star and worshiped as a thigh-bone-shaped slab of granite between al Talf and Mecca; Manat, the goddess of destiny, worshiped as a black stone on the road between Mecca and Medina; and the moon god, Hubal, whose worship was connected with the Black Stone of the Kaaba. The stones were said to have fallen from the sun, moon, stars, and planets and to represent cosmic forces. The so-called Black Stone (actually the color of burnt umber) that Muslims revere today is the same one that their forebears had worshiped well before Muhammad and that they believed had come from the moon. (No scientific investigation has ever been performed on the stone. In 930, the stone was removed and shattered by an Iraqi sect of Qarmatians, but the pieces were later returned. The pieces, sealed in pitch and held in place by silver wire, measure about 10 inches in diameter altogether and several feet high; they are venerated today in patched-together form.)” (The Joy of Sects, Peter Occhigrosso, 1996)
Interesting isn’t it? Allah is apparently just a common demon, nothing special, who made a successful power grab with Mohammed’s help.
You have to give allah credit for a nice effort. Still, his knee will bow to Jesus Christ.
...”In 930, the stone was removed and shattered by an Iraqi sect of Qarmatians,”...
I don’t think he really means “Iraqi” in that context.
dont want to bust your balloon but all religions, including judaism and christianity have precursors in practice. islam isnt any different in that respect.
there are a bunch of “relics” in christianity that are sound similarly ridiculous to the meteor in mecca.
i was on a greek island last year and people were crawling on their bellies a couple miles to kiss the glass box that supposedly had some saints bone in it.
whats the diference?
LOL I love that title.
Before Muhammad appeared, the Kaaba was surrounded by 360 idols, and every Arab house had its god. Arabs also believed in jinn (subtle beings), and some vague divinity with many offspring.”...
Even then it was all about “change”...very interesting.
It was religious people who insisted that He be nailed up. Remember? Religious people pursued Paul and tried on multiple occasions to murder him. Religious people killed scores of Jews and Christians during the Inquisition. Religious people killed scores of famous martyrs throughout history, in fact.
There's a vast difference between following some religion and being friends with Jesus on a personal level.
that is funny, hadnt noticed.
its also intersting how many religions sound when you describe the sacred worship part in clinical terms.
or is it just me?
A meteorite fell in the ar-Rub al-Hali desert & left some craters now called the “Wabar craters”. The place has always been known for having similar glass blocks & it was popular with caravan routes, so there were plenty of opportunities to pick up these rocks.
There’s a Middle Eastern legend of the city of Ubar, destroyed from the sky by G-d for its king’s disobedience of a prophet. The city was located in that area & the craters were actually re-discovered by Europeans when they were looking for Ubar. Ubar is our Atlantis of the Middle East.
Although I believe he was thinking specifically about his friend L. Ron.
If you claim to belong to the Religion of Peace, yet continually want to turn other in "pieces."
Is that thing supposed to look like a vagina?
I commend you on your grasp of Islam, sir (or madame). Very impressive, very impressive indeed.
They still do. As it goes, jinn are a race that are generally invisible to humans & have magical powers. Shaytan was a jinn named Iblis who was thrown out of paradise for refusing to bow to Adam. The Arabs believe the jinn to have free will just like humans, as opposed to angels. They also are born, get married, die, & all the normal human things except that they live longer & can shapeshift.
14. You can’t take a joke!
“Religious people killed scores of famous martyrs throughout history, in fact.”
So, they were all famous martyrs before they were killed? Had they been killed by non-religious people, would they still have been “martyred”? I’m trying to get 4 out of what should be a matter of simply putting two and two together but there’something about that statement that doesn’t want to add up. No offense but...
No, they’re famous now, largely because of John Foxe.
And you’re a martyr if you die for refusing to deny your faith. Doesn’t matter what the murderer’s motivation is, but it’s usually religious in nature.
Thanks for that. I am now more sure than ever that they’re out of their freakin’ minds.
“And youre a martyr if you die for refusing to deny your faith. Doesnt matter what the murderers motivation is, but its usually religious in nature.”
Yeah right...and Bob Marley was a martyr too (cough).
my command of Islam is wholly a function of google. lol.
Patrick McNee as Count Iblis in the old Battlestar Galactica.
I wouldnt know and google wasnt any help. Will defer to you on this one.
Bob Marley wasn’t murdered for his faith, as illegitimate as it is. What are you talking about?
And not all christians 'honor' relics. Some would say no christians 'honor' relics...
Would it be 'neat' to find Noah's ark, the ark of the covenant, a splinter from Jesus' cross, etc - I suppose. Many let these things become distractions from our relationship with the one we worship.
I may have a pocket knife from my grandfather, but it is no more than a reminder of the relationship that I had with him, and it doesn't replace him. If it were gone, I would still remember him...Since my God is alive again and with me constantly, having a 'relic' to remember Him by almost seems silly...
i hear ya, but you shoulda seen these pilgrims crawling for miles on this greek island to the “relic”. some were quite old and sick. creepy to say the least.
Well, maybe I just have a dirty mind, but that thing really creeps me out.
It reminds of lesbian icon Georgia O'Keefe's paintings.
