RELIGIONS OF THE WORLD---IN RHYME---Part 3 Islam
The last time I wrote about this I received a death threat, My response is to not publish my location till I've left. Anyway, I've lived longer than the average bear already--Ill take my chances and tell you what I think. I begin with my best condensate of their views.
There is only one God, call him Allah.
He creates as an act of mercy,
Sustains and guides and will someday judge
Every Jack, Jill, Suzy and Percy.
Humans are made to worship Allah,
To rule over nature and construct
A social order of justice and truth,
merciful and not corrupt.
Evil in the world begins with Satan,
An enemy angel who tempts us all
To be proud, selfish and petty,
Eat pork and drink alcohol.
God wants us to rise above this evil,
Build character in our lives,
Obey his laws, benefit humanity,
Have no more than 4 wives.
He asks five things: Profess the faith,
Pray five times daily, give alms,
Once in a lifetime visit Mecca,
Fast during Ramadan.
This message was given verbatim to Mohammed,
Written in the Koran book.
He’s the final prophet God will send,
No need to further look.
History will end on judgement day
When Allah will choose where we dwell–
The righteous will live forever in heaven,
The wicked are sent to hell.
RANDY PHILOSOPHIZES: In the snake pit that religion is---Islam is the Cobra--and it seeks to eat all the other snakes-- a dreadful religion with a dreadful history. It has morphed itself into the number one problem in the world.
It's doctrins are no more or less unbelievable and unverifiable that those discussed so far and it brainwashes its children like christians do-- but it has added a prison wall of a doctrine that makes escape from it so dangerous that few try. That is the doctrine that whoever renounces the faith must be killed. It has thus immunized itself against critical self examination and reform.
The Indoctrination and fear inherent in Islam has a billion people in its grip behaving like mindless automatons guided by stupid and savage leaders.
We delude ourselves to think we can live in peace with them. They are beyond reasoning. Hunnington (The Clash of Civilizations)makes the case clear. (also recommended: Sam Harris--THE END OF FAITH)
The only cure for this fanaticism is a shattering defeat. That's what it took to disabuse the Japanese of their divine emperor/destiny delusion.
