A cult is not a religion. The world riven in two parts, with the Moslem destroying the Infidel, is unworthy of the name religion. This Sura of 'Time' is simply an expression of two themes: 1) Only the male moon deity of Mecca, the 'One' or Al-Lah has free-will and 2) If you follow him or it you might be rewarded with a heavenly afterlife. Might be.
“This Sura is yet another ode to how and why the Infidel will be toasted and roasted in Hell-Fire. In vain will you search this Sura for an ethical statement or program. ... This Sura leads off with an expressed statement of contempt for the human. This is hardly novel within the Koran or Islamic liturgy. Men are things, not humans. And these things must be managed by the moon deity:
“Verily We created Man from a drop of mingled sperm, in order to try him: so We have him (the gifts) of Hearing and Sight.“ (76:2)
Men were just useless sperm, until the moon deity, El-Lah took it upon himself to fashion the droplets into a human form. That is so very nice of him. So all humans even non-Muslims are created by El-Lah. By extension therefore all humans are really Muslim even if they persist in following non-Islamic theologies. Given that apostasy is a crime punished by death in the Koran and in Sharia Law, this supposition gives Muslims a free-reign to murder non-Muslims who have not returned to their natural cult. This Sura plainly states that you must become a Muslim. In fact your only acknowledged free-will is to follow Al-ilah or Mohammed both of whom are the same of course:
“We showed him the Way: whether he be grateful or ungrateful (rests on his will)“ (76:3)
This verse is the only verse in the Koran in which there is a hint at free-will. Usually every page reiterates the demand that the moon thing or dialectical polytheistic force Al-Lah controls all wills. The verse above of course, does not propose that free-will exists. You either support Mohammed or Al-Lah or you are damned. Your free-will is a gift from the Allah thing.”
Nothing in the Koran supports free-will or its corollary rational intelligence. The entire edifice of the cult of Muhammad demands the opposite of course. In this Sura of 31 verses, there are only 6 verses of hate speech against the Infidel. Moderately centrist the PC cult would say. The hate speech includes:
Moslems who follow Muhammad need to be patient. They will reap their rewards, as most of the verses of this Sura depict heavenly delights, young boys, wine, flowing water and a carefree existence. The criminals who do not follow the cult are facing a painful torment and a 'hard' Day of Judgement. They will be wearing iron collars and possess disfigured faces. Sounds tolerant.
The Moslems and Koran never say why the Jews, Christians and Pagans will be destroyed. Only that they must be, since they rejected the prophecy of Muhammad and his Qur'an, supposedly the uncreated work of a divine force, represented by the male moon deity of Mecca Al-Lah. The Koran is simple. Moslems who support the Muhammadan cult by fighting, 'striving', giving alms to poor Moslems, and helping the Moslem community while being piously prostrated to Al-Lah, win. The rest of humanity is doomed. This seems to be a very strange definition of a 'religion'. Intolerance, irrationality, slavery, ignorance and no free-will are usually hallmarks of cults.
