“Quran is replete with scientific heresies, historic blunders, mathematical mistakes, logical absurdities, grammatical errors and ethical fallacies. It is badly compiled and it contradicts itself. There is nothing intelligent in this book let alone miraculous.”

    I really don’t know much about the Quran other than it seems it’s most devoted followers encourage suicide bombers, but it sounds a lot like the Bible.

    Truth is, if I decide to blow myself up, it will be for one very experienced, high-class and mature hooker, not some silly and giggly virgins who need to be trained! Besides, the Quran doesn’t specify the sex of these virgins or whether they have been disfigured or not. 😉

    From what I have read in the Quran, is that as Bob said it is similar to the Bible in that it has resulted in many dangerous fanatics. However; i disagree in that it is a direct cause of all of these. The Quran is a piece of middle eastern literature. Just as the Bible is an anthology of Palestinian, Roman, and Greek literature. And like most good literature it contains many philosophical and ideological elements. The problem derives when kings and generals exploit these philosophies for their own political gain. This is proven since there have also been many other examples of this throughout history, be it Charlemagne and “City of God,” the Han dynasty and “Analects,” Ferdinand and the works of Aristotle, Stalin and “Communist Manifesto,” et cetera. So in short, do not burn the book because someone misread it. The Quran is a great work of poetry and is essential for understanding that era of history and geography, do not condemn anymore than you should condemn “Thus Spoke Zarathustra” or “Discourses”.

    P.S.
    Keep your pants on Atheist Advocate, we all appreciate your effort in following your evolutionary programming, but it is not a topic that need be discussed

    The problem is not necessarily with the Bible and/or the Quran in and of themselves. The problem lies in the uses to which various groups put them and the claims, historical and otherwise, that those same groups make for them.

  6. Bob Says:

    Oxymoronic Christthinker, I disagree. When a “holy book” instructs it’s believers to kill for various different reasons (as the Bible does) how is the book it’s self NOT the problem?

  7. Chris Says:

    A book is just a book. But when you tell people to put their human reason away and accept a book that condones horrific murder and genocide and purports to be the divine and unalterable word of a god then you are giving those poor besotted hordes license to practice all the worst parts of human nature. The book is not to blame but only to the extent that it it just a book. Right now, these brutal and immoral texts are hardly just books. Someday maybe they will be. Here’s hoping…
