The core beliefs of Islam

One of the great, positive stories of the age is how the Internet is enabling, for the first time in history, proper analysis and criticism of the beliefs of Islam.

For 1,400 years, the ideas of Islam have been either ignored in the West, or unchallenged in the Islamic world, where criticism has been ruthlessly censored.

With the Internet, this is finally ending. The Internet is full of criticism, analysis, mockery, comedy and parody of Islam. A torrent of unstoppable words, images and videos. Visible to every young Muslim in the West, and visible to much of the Islamic world too. The changes this will make to Islam have only just begun.

A large-scale global Islamic apostasy will likely be the result. (Similar to the large-scale global Christian apostasy since the Enlightenment.) And that will hopefully make for less Islamic jihad and less Islamic terrorism, and hopefully a safer planet.



 
Extracts from The true nature of imposture fully displayed in the life of Mahomet by Humphrey Prideaux (6th edn, 1716).
Some Westerners criticised Islam over the centuries. See Christianity on Islam in the past.
But mostly Islam was ignored.
This is finally changing. And the world will be better off as a result.


  

The Prophet Muhammad

All discussion of the life and moral character of the Prophet Muhammad has been ruthlessly policed and censored for 1,400 years.

With the Internet, this is finally ending.

The life of Muhammad summed up in a meme.


  

Killings by Muhammad

Like Moses (but in contrast to Jesus), Muhammad was an enthusiastic and prolific killer.
  


Human response to the story of Mohammed stoning a Jewish man and a Jewish woman to death.
See Bukhari Book 86, Hadith 48.
Also Sunan Ibn Majah Vol. 3, Book 20, Hadith 2556.

Muhammad's wives and slaves




The prophet Muhammad married a 6 year old and had sex with a 9 year old.
From the Hadith by Bukhari at sunnah.com, which re-numbers this as Book 67, Hadith 69.
For over 1000 years, how many children have been abused because of this hadith?



From Chapter on Aisha apparently part of a collection of texts by Muhammad Al-Munajjid.
This is absolute genius.
This says that the Prophet Muhammad was not a paedophile because most of his wives were not children.

"My Prophet, My Führer" (in the style of Downfall) looks at Muhammad's sexual and other morality.

The Quran and the hadith

Criticising the Quran can easily get you killed in some parts of the world, a useful device to ensure the uncritical propagation of the meme.

In contrast, criticism of the Bible is freely available everywhere in the western world - because Christians and Jews tolerate freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

Selected verses from the Quran and Hadith

  


What the Quran says about non-Muslims.
From here.



"Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him."
From the Hadith by Bukhari at sunnah.com, which re-numbers this as Book 88, Hadith 5.



"What Islam Fears - Laughter".
Hilarious video where atheist Phil Hellenes reacts to a Muslim talking about the Punishment of the Grave.


  

"They surely disbelieve who say: Lo! Allah is the Messiah, son of Mary. The Messiah (himself) said: O Children of Israel, worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord. Lo! whoso ascribeth partners unto Allah, for him Allah hath forbidden paradise. His abode is the Fire. For evil-doers there will be no helpers. They surely disbelieve who say: Lo! Allah is the third of three; when there is no God save the One God. If they desist not from so saying a painful doom will fall on those of them who disbelieve."
- Some pretty nasty speech against Christianity in Quran 5.

"Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful."
- Quran 9:5 calls on Muslims to fight the unbelievers until they believe.

"Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture as believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, and forbid not that which Allah hath forbidden by His messenger, and follow not the Religion of Truth, until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low."
- Quran 9:29 calls on Muslims to fight the unbelievers until they pay the "protection money".


Some Zanadiqa (atheists) were brought to 'Ali and he burnt them. The news of this event, reached Ibn 'Abbas who said, "If I had been in his place, I would not have burnt them, as Allah's Apostle forbade it, saying, 'Do not punish anybody with Allah's punishment (fire).' I would have killed them according to the statement of Allah's Apostle, 'Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'"
- The Hadith, Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 84, Number 57.

There was a fettered man beside Abu Muisa. Mu'adh asked, "Who is this (man)?" Abu Muisa said, "He was a Jew and became a Muslim and then reverted back to Judaism." Then Abu Muisa requested Mu'adh to sit down but Mu'adh said, "I will not sit down till he has been killed. This is the judgment of Allah and His Apostle (for such cases) and repeated it thrice. Then Abu Musa ordered that the man be killed, and he was killed.
- The Hadith, Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 84, Number 58.

Allah's Apostle said, "The blood of a Muslim who confesses that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that I am His Apostle, cannot be shed except in three cases: In Qisas for murder, a married person who commits illegal sexual intercourse and the one who reverts from Islam (apostate) and leaves the Muslims."
- The Hadith, Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 83, Number 17.





"Science" in the Quran

  

"Science" in the Quran.
"Science" in the Bible works a similar way.



"Science" in the Quran.
To the tune of "My Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music.

The "science" of sunrise and sunset explained, by an illiterate 7th century man.
Episode of "The Prophet Tales" by Apostate Prophet and SyeTen.
The Apostate Prophet character says: "You are not a prophet. You're just some guy who is making up a lot of stuff. I'm telling you, nobody is dumb enough to believe in your religion in a few hundred years."



Quran 68 (also here) assures us that Muhammad is not a madman.

Blocked on Twitter by the regressive left and Islamists: I love debate. I love ideas. But the Western left and their friends the Islamic right do not return the favour. Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block. See Who blocks me on Twitter.

I will debate almost anyone. Stick to ideas and I will debate you. But I do have rules. See Who I block on Twitter.

The Twitter dark age, 2016 to 2022: I am on Twitter at markhumphrys. Twitter was a great place for debate before 2016. You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas. Starting in 2016, Twitter became increasingly broken. It became full of reporting and bans and censorship. In 2019, Twitter even started shadowbanning me for no reason that was ever explained, or could be appealed. With the arrival of Elon Musk in 2022, Twitter's dark age of censorship may end. Let's hope so.

I am also on Parler at markhumphrys. I am on Gettr at markhumphrys.
