Let the Truth set you Free

Before i cap this Month, i would like to say a final statement, which should be like the moral of this month, and this month more than any other month has been an eye-opener, it has awaken a more civilized, more ethical person in me that has been buried under layers of blind belief.

However, Even if many Muslims see disrespect towards their religion by these articles and caricatures that i have posted in this blog, i feel the same way towards religion, because it offends my intellectuality, it offends my ethics, and morals, I would never respect some one or a religion that wishes me to eternally burn in hell's fire. for most of my life i have been good to people, i always try to be as helpful and delightful as i possibly can or as much as my circumstances would allow. Now as being an Atheist and not believing in God or in Hell, maybe some Muslims are wondering why do i bother being good? Since i believe that there would be no judgment? Well, it's wrong to do good for the sake of avoiding a delusion called Hell, and purely for the sake of being rewarded with the delusion of a heaven. We have it in us to do good deeds, the sense of right and wrong that motivate us to project the best of us, and to avoid making bad decisions. but why?

Think about it, we must be thinking if there is no God then there is no reward for being good, that's absolutely wrong, there are far more greater rewards, and you really don't need to wait for the day that you die to harvest the fruits of your goodness. You will discover that you will be rewarded almost instantly once you show the goodness of your heart. as for me the reward of being a better person is that i feel good about my self, knowing that i have spared others from my bad doings that i could inflict on them. Eventually it becomes an infection, it turns to a new common-sense, were being good for the sake of being good becomes taken for granted, but this means that it has also become a new foundation, and it is the right foundation that removes fear from our minds. this also opens the door to a new concept of creativity since we're not bound or restricted by blind belief, our only limit becomes our mind's limits.

Women on the other hand can play a bigger role in society, because there is no religion depriving her from her natural right to become an equal partner in our universe, thus allowing her to show her real potential, in many fields. there are many great women who have achieved very much from so little, they didn't have any better conditions that supported them to reach were they stand now, but they made it any way.

What we're standing against here is a system of oppression, a system that wants to not only control our lives, but also to control our thoughts, and to control our free will, it wants us to kill those who don't believe in what it tells us to believe in. Science has given us so much evidence and like ancient gods, science has narrowed the gaps for the lord of the gaps of our time, the very same god who has enslaved our thoughts and our lives and our time for thousands of years. We're no longer living in the old dark ages, we're an advanced society so let's act as ones, and stop causing pain and suffering to others. say NO to your delusions.

And most certainly, no one is paying me to post these articles against Islam. this is only what a brain-washed paranoid would say to redeem him/her self.

Believe it or Else

A dear friend, and a fellow Atheist sent me these wonderful caricatures by Abdullah Aziz. Hope you will enjoy them as much as we did.

The Holly Crap

Recently I have come across some incredible articles during my internet research about Mohammad's Characteristics, it strike me as surprising and disgusting as I read the article and realize how far people around Mohammad worshiped him as the supposed-to-be messenger of god.

Unfortunately the article was written in Arabic; however I will do my best to translate the essence of the article in English.

The article talks about Mohammad's spit, sweat, blood, defecation, urine, and semen.

Spit: Of course as we all may have known, that Mohammad being the prophet of God, therefore his mouth does not contain any sort of germs, or any kind of impurities.

It is mentioned in stories told about him through out his life that his spit was used as means of medicine to cure illnesses and severed body parts.

In one of those stories, a woman came to Mohammad with her son and told him that her son is rebellious and possessed by a demon, so the Mohammad opened the boy's mouth and spat in it, and repeated this sentence three times :"Be gone Enemy of God, I'm the prophet of Allah".

In another story, Mohammad was drinking water, then a man came to him and begged Mohammad to spit in that drink so that he can offer it to his father, may it will purify his heart. So did Mohammad, the man went to his father with the cup of spit in his hand and offered it to his father, were the father asked his son, about the contents of the cup. And the son replied, it contains the spit of Mohammad and it will purify your heart. The father replied: "I rather drink your mother's urine, for it is more pure than that spit".

Sweat: It appears that Mohammad didn't produce sweat like the sweat that humans produced, as we've been told, but his sweat was a holly sweat, that smelled good.

In one story Mohammad was spending the night at Anas's home, while he was sleeping he started to sweat, when Anas's Mother came to him while he was a sleep, and started drying his sweat with a piece of cloth and in to a small bucket. While this was happening, Mohammad suddenly woke up, and asked Anas's mother what she was doing. She answered: "it's so we can use it as a perfume"

Holly Shit: Mohammad was also famous for his Holly Shit, stories about him tell the significance of his digestive system, and about the sweet aroma of his Holly Shit, not only that, it also says that when ever Mohammad went to take a crap, the earth would open up under his ass, and swallow his shit. As you can tell, it's amazing.

what is more amazing, is that most Muslims all over the world are willing to believe all this, but they still don't believe that man has landed on the moon. it is the ignorance that made religious people believe in myths and rubbish, and reject science with all the evidence that it has provided.

A Monster called Religion

It is interesting how a Muslim lives his/her life, and how much of a narrow minded person do you have to become to live such a life. When you're not allowed to think freely, or to express your self in the form of art, when you're not allowed to appreciate the beautiful things in life, then you must be a person who has truly lost your way, and the natural light that once was lighting your way has dimmed and faded as you got brain washed while growing up.

Religion has blinded us from the obvious truth, now that religion is a monster that says "close your eyes and follow me, if you open your eyes, then you shall burn in hell for the rest of eternity" at that point you can imagine lakes of fire and torment, being damned in hell for all eternity is a hard thing, so I better keep my eyes shut and believe. Well, I've been there and I felt that fear for so long and I kept my eyes closed, till one day I decided to open them and at the moment I opened my eyes, I saw that there was no Monster, and I saw the world in a different color. All that it takes is a little courage.

As long as your eyes are closed there is no possible way that you can see the truth, as long as your eyes are closed there is no possible way that you can know that there is no Monster judging your every thought and sending he's minions to spy on you.

Then the Monster Says: "Who hears the communications of Allah recited to him, then persists proudly as though he had not heard them; so announce to him a painful punishment" The Kneeling Surah, Verse 8

Have you ever had a dream that seemed so real? And when you woke up from that dream you were so grateful that it was just a nightmare? It is the same with Islam, In this Islamic nightmare the Monster keep convincing you that if you wake up, you'll find a painful punishment waiting for you, and because the dream is real as long as you're still in it, you find it hard to believe that you will be safe after you open your eyes and awake from the terrible nightmare. But for how long have you been having this bad dream, have you ever wondered how the world would look like if you just open your eyes for one second?

Then you hear the Monster's voice again saying: "And Allah's is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth; and on the day when the hour shall come to pass, on that day shall they perish who say false things" The Kneeling Surah, Verse 27

At this point you're trying harder not to open your eyes, but deep down in your mind you hear a faint voice telling you to open your eyes, you try to ignore that voice, but the faint voice keep echoing in your mind and insists that you open your eyes, now you're in a struggle between the faint voice and the Monster that is telling you to stay in it's Nightmare. But you can't ignore the faint voice because the more you think of it, the louder it gets, till it becomes loud enough that you no longer hear the Monster, you feel a bit relieved now that you can't hear the scary monster's voice, and the fear is gone, so you finely decide to open your eyes, at the first moment of opening there is an over whelming bright light that makes it in to your eye, and it's too much for you to take, because you've been in the darkness for too long, you rub your eyes, but soon your eyes adjust to the bright light and every thing look clear to you, now you see the true colors of life, and the best part is, there is no Monster, and there is lakes of fire, there is no torment, so you release a sigh of relief because now you're enlightened, and you have killed the Monster called Religion.

After Islam

Men and women in Islam:

The great unmentionable evil at the center of our
culture is monotheism. From a barbaric Bronze Age
text known as the Old Testament, three anti-human
religions have evolved - Judaism, Christianity, and
Islam. These are sky-god religions. They are, literally,
patriarchal - God is the Omnipotent Father - hence
the loathing of women for 2,000 years in those
countries afflicted by the sky-god and his earthly male delegates


Gore Vidal

It is safe to say that religion in general was designed to best serve men's best interests, knowing that the concept of a supreme entity was at the beginning of mankind nothing more than a question mark over what human's couldn't grasp and comprehend from natural phenomenon to vast yet unexplained environment that surrounded them, such as the sun the moon the stars, ignorance being the common theme of those dark and old ages, when humans thought the earth was flat, they started to imagine superior entities that hold a cataclysmic power that can either reform their quality of life and bless them with more food when they go out to hunt or farm, or punish them for their sins.

Of course, at those ages it was men who did most of the out door activities, so they were considered the providers of food and so forth, therefore claiming their right to become leaders of every thing else, and being at the top of the food chain. It was the very same ego that made men conceive of such an entity, the idea of a God has been present since the beginning of time, and one God failed after another as science proved that such being has no room in our universe

In an Arab country, only a man would have the courage to alert the most desperate and the ignorant about the existence of a God that gave that very same person the burden of delivering his message to those who seek refuge from the dark ages and all the injustice and intolerance that comes with it. So as he progressed with his revelations about his newly conceived God, he told the desperate ones exactly what they needed to hear from a savior.

Now taking that in to account, I believe that when Mohammad came up with laws, and limits for his new religion he made those laws to best serve his gender, and yet to preserve a balance that would not create conflict, therefore Mohammad had given men the right to claim higher and sensitive positions in the government, the kind of positions that would give men a stronger leadership mainly over countries, armies, estate, fortune, and women and so on. The same principle has been adopted by prophets even before Mohammad.

"And if you fear that you cannot act equitably towards orphans, then marry such women as seem good to you, two and three and four; but if you fear that you will not do justice (between them), then (marry) only one or what your right hands possess; this is more proper, that you may not deviate from the right course".

Women Sura, Verse 3.

In the Women Sura Above, Mohammad claims that God has given women their rights, therefore he allows men to marry up to 4 women at the same time or in total, but compared to our modern age, in most European nations and in the United States of America it's against the law to marry more than one woman, simply because a man would be disrespecting a woman by seeing her as his sexual pleasure provider or a slave rather than a human being with an individual personality with equal rights as her fellow man. Even in third world nations Muslim women who had their fare share of education do not approve of getting married to a man who is already married because they find it disrespectful to them, If it's the word of God that allows a man to marry up to 4 women at the same time, then why do most women disapprove it?,

In one verse God says that men should treat women as equal partners, and in another verse he says that men should have leadership over women, the contradiction is perfectly obvious. If we take a good look at the time scales of human history right from the Stone Age to the modern age, we can see the transitioning of women's role in society. At the time when muscle power ruled, women were over powered and enslaved by men. Simply because men had more muscle power, as time progressed and humans became more intelligent man started to recognize a woman's potential, and up to this date women are discovered to be as equally intelligent as man.

It is safe to say that Mohammad failed to see the progressing of woman's intellectual power, and he kept her as a less equal partner to men, depriving her from reaching high ranks in society this reaching her full potential, prioritizing her duties to her home, and obligating her to obey her husband at all times, for example, a wife can't visit her father even if he's in his death bed, unless her husband permits her. The only logical explanation to this is, that times were different when Mohammad claimed his prophecy, and women at that time didn't play a large role in their society as they do now a days.

Then again in another verse from the Holly Qura'an says:

"Allah enjoins you concerning your children: the male shall have the equal of the portion of two females; then if they are more than two females, they shall have two-thirds of what the deceased has left".

Women Sura, Verse 11

I don't think there is much to explain as the verse very simply explains it self, Now I do believe that Mohammad preached about women being an equal to men, the question is, Then why doesn't he permit a woman to have an equal share as a man would?

Well, it doesn't require a rocket scientist to figure out that there has been injustice and sexual discrimination committed here. Ask your self this: "If a god did really exist, who claims to give women their rights and claims that women are equal to men and should have the same rights given to men, would that same god give a woman half of what man gets from an inheritance rather than giving her full share?"

It gets even uglier now as you read the following verse that contradicts with the whole concept that Islam claims to be built on (which equal rights between men and women):

"Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great".

Women Sura Verse 34
Now logic flies right out of the window, and it appears that God is not making any sense, one minute he's saying that women are equal to men, now he's saying that he created men as superior to women, or let me put that as god would put it "because Allah has made some of them to excel others"
, to top it all off, God gave man permission to beat and abuse his wife and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them” I don’t have Ph.D. in any field of social studies, but i do know that i doesn’t take a Ph.D. to know that this is the way to treat a slave, a lot of men get restraining orders and go to jail for years for abusing their wives, But God permits it

When Muslim men go to heaven, they have all the beautiful women that even their wildest imagination can't imagine their beauty, in the other hand, the Qura'an never mentions what's in store for a Muslim woman when she's in heaven. Is it because God believes that women shouldn't know what awaits them in the other life? Or is it simply because God doesn't think it's that important?

Despite all this, I can't get over one thought that keeps ringing in my mind which is; Why does god always refer to him self as "He"? Is he male? Let's look at this in a good logical way. Supposing that god is male, that means that he has a male's reproductive organs. Just to explain what I'm trying to say here, I want you to read the following verse:

"Say: He, Allah, is One (1) Allah is He on Whom all depend (2) He begets not, nor is He begotten (3) And none is like Him (4)"

The Unity Sura Verses 1, 2, 3, and 4

In this verse God claims that he wasn't given birth nor did he have given birth. So now if God is male, and he has a male's reproductive organs, then they would be useless because there would be no female of his kind to have a sexual intercourse with, and it purely makes no sense because he just said in his Qura'an as illustrated in the previous verse that he is "One", "and none is like Him". So what is the point of being a male if you can't perform a male's natural role?

Let's just face the simple and crystal clear facts, it was not God who created man in his image, it was man who created God in his own image. Therefore man puts all his attributes in to his god, because men are always struggling for more power, most men wish to be Gods so it is very typical that man would imagine a god in his image.

In third world nations a man expresses his manhood through abusing women and displaying his strength and leadership to overpower and enslave women and keep them obedient to his wishes thus he becomes a mini God, or at least views him self as so. It is very traditional that men are far more superior to women in the Arab world, the less man abuses women, the more he feels like a woman.

Do we really need a God to tell us that women should be treated equally? When did humanity lose track of the sense of right or wrong, justice or injustice towards our equal partners "women"?

I believe that we should put our highly evolved brain in to good use, instead of wasting our time on an imaginary God, we should spend more time harmonizing the connection between men ad women, without pointing out at each other's differences, because there is no such thing as a superior sex, both genders can benefit from each other's knowledge and experience if both genders given equal opportunities to reach a higher potential.

Before Islam

The Common Theme:

The common theme of that age was a sad image; More than 1465 years ago, there was a nation that can only be described by its ignorance, greed, and its extreme lack of justice. Such nation was overfilled with heartless savage and barbarians who would not hesitate to kill the weak and powerless, those who couldn't help them selves found no one to help them against the injustice that took place or to simply seek refuge at that time.

You would find crimes every day, the powerful who steels from the weak, the rich taking from the poor, not to mention the every day's injustice in every day life at the time.

If you were living in a time like that, weak, and helpless, wouldn't you wish for a savior to appear from the heavens and save you from your misery?

It was commonly known to be a disgrace for a father to have a daughter, therefore a woman would be buried a live with her new-born child if she gives birth to a girl. Women were treated like slaves and had no opinion of their own as we still witness till our day in most Arab countries, they were presented as gifts to seal a good business deal, and they were mainly for recreational purposes only.

Before Mohammad came up with the concept of Islam, he was known in his community as the honest man, this was due to his fare trade with incoming and out going caravans that brought goods from and to Hijaz (which is Saudi Arabia now).

Even when Mohammad was well known for his honesty and fare trade, and even if he claims to have given women their rights, he wasn't being completely honest. Still one thing is true, Mohammad did preach about Women rights, yet he him self didn't abide by his teaching. Before the conceiving of Islam many know that Mohammad had 11 spouses, one of them was 6 years of age at engagement, and was 9 years of age at marriage, her name was A'esha. Now, of all people who preach about right and wrong, Mohammad should know better that it is not in A'esha's best interest to be married in such a young age, if he committed such action in our days, he would've been thrown in jail as a pedophile.

Yet we still hear the sheikhs, and Imams trying to justify Mohammad's action by twisting and turning facts, just like one sheikh would say: "that you can't compare the sense of right and wrong in our days, with sense of right and wrong Mohammad's days", which also creates a contradiction, because Mohammad also said that: "Islam is a religion for every time and place" therefore leaving no chance to false justifications, it can only mean that what was wrong then is still wrong now, and vise versa.
