    1. yawn...

    2. screw the secular jihadists.

    3. as to tom holland, well, i guess he is okay.

     Now i don't know which revelation for who??   or which post ?

    It is a nice resume of the existing problems of the narrative and the different positions.

    Nope, I'm not interested any more in jihad. I'm done it with this. I do not consider it as an important pillar at the origin of the Quran or Islam (as eschatology for more and more scholars today) contrary to Gallez or de Prémare which is normal as they both are Christians. As such they were lead to think of it considering what happened to Christianity.

    what does that mean??   

    does it mean "JIHAD WAS NOT THERE IN EARLY ISLAM??  or it is not there and not important in Islam itself??

    Melchert on Quran and hadith:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NgSVl9rJqQ&feature=youtu.be

    Melchert clearly states that different readings emerged trying to make sense of the rasm.
    He claims that the early tradition leaves room for viewing the rasm as being dictated by Gabriel and all the rest is less divine.

    Sure. There's no oral tradition. Only a text. All the narrative is wrong. But! It is not a plot. It is a belief as the Quran states about itself that it is a proclamation, to not believe in the oral tradition is not believe in the word of God.

    Oral tradition:

    Some scholars really seem to believe this. I know it is completely implausible but when all these intelligent people say the contrary, even I start to have second thoughts  Huh?

    So I do think it is refreshing to hear Melchert say what he says.

    The Quran speaks of itself also as a book. I don't think this "primacy of orality" is spelled out in the Q. Contrary.

    It's much more ambiguous than that. One does not really know about what book it is talking about, whereas one does know when it speak about the texts one is reading now (hahaha!) and regarding it, it speaks of it as a proclamation, not a written text.

    the Oral tradition:.. WHAT I CALL IS ORAL DIARRHEA  .. comes from faith heads who interpret these faith books in a literal way word to word...  It is very little to do with what is there in these faith books and the facts about the origins/history of these faiths..   That not only goes to Islam but to ALL OTHER FAITHS on the planet . did you watch all that  50 mts or so video  dear mundi?? what did he say??

    the heading says "Shaping of Islam in early middle ages"  and  which years of Islam you consider as  "middle ages" in Islam starting from first  revelation in that cave ??  i mean what year to what year??

    The Quran is a written text. Moreover Melchert in the video seems (really) embarrassed in destroying the fable of the oral transmission, going against the pillar of the Muslim narrative, namely the frame Mecca/Medina/Zem zem/Kaba and the character supposed to have produced the text  the "Prophet Muhammad", transmitting orally the Quranic proclamation to the people who have installed themselves in Damascus.
    All of this, thanks Melchert to say it (even embarrassed), is a fable.
    The narrative is inexact, there is no oral transmission, but a work on a consonantal text which have to be completed and has been completed by people whose origin are nor Mecca/Medina/Zem zem/Kaba whereas the narrative claims they are.
    There is no plot just a belief which explains the Quranic text.
    This belief is historically inexact; the Quranic text (beyond the interpolations spotted in it)  has another origin. Muslim believe in a fake story about their sacred book. All is fake.

    I  took the liberty of editing bit of your post but those  two  statements are extremely important to put them on to a publication dear Altara...  I am not sure why you are not do that  and what for you are waiting .

    Jihad was invented after the fact to build a mystique around events that were not religious in nature and in order to help build the muslim narrative and show the alleged superiority of Islam.

    It is however an important pillar nowadays, especially when one look at movements like ISIS though there are a lot of muslim who prefer dawa to jihad but they serve the same goal.

    Yes. Working on it seriously with no agenda of tenure, career, ideology , political correctness, or just be not fired (what I understand very well... I do not blame them), all what have not academics, I get those chances, I have some responses. The issue with the Quran is that it necessitates to be interested in other things that few in the field owns. This field is more vast than perceived and mobilizes different dimension that  a professor of Arabic or a specialist of the Virgin Mary cannot get; they does not show to know them in their work.
    One scholar has perceived this, he wrote it (in French...), it is Manfred Kropp.
      The only scholar who could (in the field) be near me from this point of view is... is... Hahaha! I won't tell it! Even if he's wrong (for me...) on many things  he has the vista to ask question and searching. (Nope it is not Raymond Dequin  dance hahaha!)

    Archeology:

    Very early in "proto-Islam", the believers seemed to have adopted specific burial practices: burying the dead in a specific direction on the right side. I think this can be an important clue in the understanding of where the ideology of the litterrati/illuminati emerged.

    Anyone?

    Graves:

    I have a set of examples pre-islam (Aila) and also early islam.

    The early islam sites are mentioned by Gibson eg in Spain, Nimes and also Qasr Qastal ( http://thesacredcity.ca/qastal.html).

    Gibson associates it with the battle of Badr . Probably that is imagination.(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELh-uIHjPbc&feature=youtu.be&a=).  But the archeological report I found (http://www.chambres-hotes-morin-salome.fr/Qastal-chateau-omeyyade.html) show that the oldest tombs face Petra (190 dg). Petra could be meant or some other site, who knows. The archeologists thought mosque and graves were aligned with Jerusalem: that doesnt make sense especially for the Qibla...With a difference of 10 dg from due south (for mosque Qibla AND burial), it is doubtful that this is just "carelessness" as David King would say.
