  • Your favorite reasons that the Quran is/isn't the word of God
     OP - August 07, 2011, 06:04 PM

    Well I don't have any definitive evidence that the Quran is/isn't the word of god, but I've had quite a few reasons why it probably isn't.

    One of my favorites is its claim to be a final guide for all of mankind, while the social/economic system it promotes through separation of role and inequality of women under the law is maladapted to a functional modern society, not even taking into account how society may progress in the future. This to me is a very strong indication that god wasn't involved in this document, as the writer was clearly lacking in foresight.

    Post your own best reasons here!

    how fuck works without shit??

    1.  Suddenly everything haram becomes halal in jannah.

    2.  The chapter of Mirum and Isa is so pathetic, its laughable.

    3.  Biblical plagerism on an epic scale, changed around a bit
    to fit the culture of the day.

    4.  Why there is never any mention of the GOOD jinn who
    converted to Islam, and yet there is talk about them in the
    quran.  And WHY are there even jinn in the quran?  Weren't
    they previously worshipped as gods by the pagans?

    And on the same note, sometimes shaytan is a jinn, and sometimes
    he is an angel, and then when asking about that, the convo gets
    squashed cuz the quran contradicts that.

    5.  As spiritual beings, folks are still having human sex, and human
    driven lusts.  As a spiritual being, who would care for that?  There is
    no sense of rising above human satisfaction in Jannah.  Like being in
    the presence of allah and spending eternity worshipping him.

    I love the idea of this as proof of its manmade origins! Which, by contrast, would make Shakespeare or Dante divine Cheesy.

    My favourite reason: all the clearly human touches which translators hedge around by adding in parenthetical words like ‘(say)…’ (e.g. 6:114).

    Also the health / food/medical advise given by the prophet I tried to implement every recommendation and nothing was working, in fact it harmed me more.  The food the prophet recommended really is horrible for me and causes me issue, beside there was a lot of contradictions  in it, one moment he loves sweet things, watermelon, honey, milk and dates, the other hadiths says his favourite food is meat, then another hadith recommending broth (fatah) so experimenting with all these has not yield any good results  for me!!

    Also the blessed seed is supposed to cure everything… why has medical research not found much about that?? I found a few links for research funded by Saudi, but really if it was so good, other pharmaceutical companies would have jumped at making tablets out of the stuff.

    Same reasons I dismiss the bible, pretty much. These may overlap somewhat, but I wanted a detailed summary (for the record) of why I reject it.

    1. The God it portrays comes off as egotistical, insecure, unjust, and unbelievably cruel. Quite possibly more cruel than Albert Fish, Hitler, or Stalin. The "punishment" and "reward" he issues he issues to people whose acts and destiny he himself wrote. Justice? Unsurprisingly this God also reflects many of the prejudices of the people he was 'revealed' to. Who would've thought 6th century Arabs and omnipotent creator of the universe would agree on so much...That's not suspicious at all! This God has greasy human fingerprints all over him.

    2. The God it portrays is far too provincial, local, and small. Allegedly he created billions of galaxies, yet the language and analogies (eg, "a stray camel") he uses in his message are based on things and animals specific to a small geographic area and time period.
    It's comical to imagine doing dawah to an Eskimo, telling him about the 5 daily prayers during a polar night, telling him that he needs to enter his "bathroom" with his left foot, and tempting him with all the tasty Arabian fruits awaiting in jannah.

    3. It does not seem befitting for an omnipotent super-mind to have a bizarre obsession with trivial and mundane human affairs (eg, how exactly we go to the bathroom, what we wear, how we style our facial hair, etc).

    4. The method of revelation. There are far less suspicious and more efficient methods of communication a God could employ than revelations to a single man in a cave, or a book. Me and WhoMan had a conversation about this in another thread.

    5. There are no original groundbreaking insights into nature you would expect a God to share. Where are the useful, detailed, applicable insights into biology, anatomy, physics, engineering? The verses presented by apologists as indicative of supernatural knowledge are vague, obscure, and usually require a heavy researcher bias to be interpreted in a way that coincides with modern scientific knowledge. Just think what benefit a detailed insight into the nature of electricity and chemistry could do to Ancient Arabs and people worldwide. Maybe they'd be giving da'wah to extraterrestrials by now.

    Moreover, many of the claims made by holy texts are plainly wrong as far as we know.
    Formation of the universe, origin of humans and other animals, etc

    Have you heard the good news? There is no God!

    there's no evidence or testimonies that Mohammed had a spiritual/theological connection to a deity.

    Not a single one of mohammed companions made a claim to seeing mohammeds communicating with an angel or a deity or anybody speaking on behalf of a deity. Such claims today which deal with human illusions of seeing angels/demons/deities are diagnosed as schizophrenia.

    It was compiled as a single book during the caliphate of Uthman some 20 odds years after the death of Muhammad. Obviously this can bring about suspicions that the text could have been altered in the intervening period, but the standard response from Islamic apologists is that the Arabs of the time had an incredible memory, so there's no way that the few Hafiz remaining at the time could have made any mistakes. To me this sounds unlikely, but largely irrelevant as my contention with the Quran doesn't relate to its purity but rather to its content.

    what kind of question is that dear asbdsp  finmad finmad finmad and why are you putting that word "isn't"  there??   You all Ex-Muslims and infidels are hell bound where you will be roasted with hot pepper and spicy sauce..

    And my favorite chapter from Quran is AT-TAHRIM Those verses in that chapter-66 clearly proves to me that this book is indeed word of allahgod..

      Off course verses like these from various chapters of Quran
    Quote
    Ta Seen Meem.[Al Quran ; 28:1]

    Ta Seen, [Al Quran ; 27:1]

    Ta Seen Meem [Al Quran ; 26:1]

    Ta Ha. [Al Quran ; 20:1]

    Kaf Ha Ya Ein Sad. [Al Quran ; 19:1]

    Alif Lam Ra. [Al Quran ; 15:1]

    Alif Lam Ra. [Al Quran ; 14:1]

    Alif, Lam, Mim, Ra. [Al Quran ; 13:1]

    Alif Lam Ra.[Al Quran ; 12:1]

    Alif Lam Ra.[Al Quran ; 11:1]

    Alif Lam Ra.[Al Quran ; 10:1]

    Alif Lam Meem Sad.[Al Quran ; 7:1]

    Alif Lam Meem.[Al Quran ; 3:1]

    Alif Lam Meem.[Al Quran ; 2:1]

     also clearly proves it is word of allahgod.  Indeed such words are  the signs of  Book of wisdom from allahalmighty

    On the way   let me also write some Quran here., It is just allah told me to scribble something in this thread..

    +1. This is where i told myself “thats it im done believing in Qur'an". Also i heard Ali has his own copy of Qur'an which was rejected.

    Plus i heard that Qur'an was written in various dialect. Why did they reject the other versions and accept the Quraish dialect?. What's was the difference?
