Quote from: SGOS on July 31, 2014, 07:09:58 AMPeople are sheep. Religion counts on it. Religions even glorify people acting like sheep. It doesn't take that much. Be it Mohammed, the Pope, Joseph Smith, or PT Barnum, people are willing to believe in silly shit and will throw away reason at the drop of a hat. Just promise them something that sounds too good to be true, and people will defend it to the death, because they prefer a fantasy to the truth.

Quote from: doorknob on August 04, 2014, 06:58:57 PMI think mohammed is full of total bullshit from the start. I think he like all who created or started a religion saw an opportunity to control nitwits and ran with it. He knew damn well what he was doing! And the fact that he claims to have seen a christian angel means he stole popular folklore of the times.

Quote from: Minimalist on September 23, 2014, 08:44:58 PMRead "Did Mohammed Exist" by Robert Spencer.Mohammed's as much bullshit as all the others.
QuoteRobert Bruce Spencer (born February 27, 1962) is an American author and blogger best known for his criticism of Islam and research into Islamic terrorism and jihad.As of 2014, he has published twelve books, including two New York Times best-selling books. In 2003 he founded and has since directed Jihad Watch, a blog which he describes as containing "...news of the international jihad, [and] commentary..." which is dedicated to "bringing public attention to the role that jihad theology and ideology plays in the modern world, and to correcting popular misconceptions about the role of jihad and religion in modern-day conflicts".He has also co-founded Stop Islamization of America (SIOA) and the Freedom Defense Initiative with blogger Pamela Geller, with whom he also co-authored a book, The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration's War on America. Spencer and Geller have been barred from travel to the UK for supporting "anti-Muslim hate groups".Stop Islamization of America (SIOA) (also known as the American Freedom Defense Initiative or simply the Freedom Defense Initiative) is an American far right, anti-Islamist, anti-Muslim, and Islamophobic organization led by Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer. Geller describes it as "a human rights entity dedicated to the freedom of speech, which is under attack, as well as to the freedom of religion and to individual rights."The group was founded in 2010 as the US branch of Stop Islamisation of Europe. It became notorious for its highly publicized ad campaigns in New York City, especially one opposing Park51, a Muslim community center proposed for lower Manhattan. The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) lists SIOA as a hate group. They are headquartered in Houston, purposely to 'reconquer' a city lost to "ethnic and religious diversity".
