Islam Dismantled is a must read for anyone interested in truth. Two reviews pertaining to Muhammad's insanity, derived from Das' work are here and here. Muhammad was a common psychopath, one 'prophet' out of thousands in the early 7th century in Arabia; a man whose mean and denuded mental faculties found expression in super-ego based hallucinations, neurologically induced 'vision's, and a capacity for mendacity, viciousness, blood and sex-lust; unparalleled in history. Muhammad was in short, the anti-Christ, or the opposite of the example of Jesus. Of that there is no dispute.
But what about the Qur'an itself ? Certainly it is a jumble-mash of incoherent ravings. Most of the text is a rant against Infidels who must be killed, humiliated, crucified or subdued. Much of the rest is a screaming demand that you must obey Muhammad and his alter-ego the Allah thing. Women are the property of Moslem men, a 'chosen' group who have license to plunder, rape and engage in sex with whomever they please. Allah grants Moslem men and in particular the most important human in history, namely Muhammad, whatever they want in this life, and whatever sexual pleasures they wish to revel in, during their stay in the heaven of the next life. What a deal.
Some very early Muslim scholars openly acknowledged that the arrangements and the syntax of the Qur’an are not miraculous, and work of equal or greater value could be produced by other God-fearing people. Dasti concluded that Qur’an was not the word of God, since it contains many instances, which confuse the identities of two speakers – Allah and Muhammad. Dasti also noted more than one hundred Qur’anic aberrations from the normal rules (Warraq, 1995, p. 5). A belief must be shown to be sound in itself as well as in some consequences of holding it, as Sina (2008, p. iii) lamented, 'After reading the Qur’an, I was in shock. I was shocked to see the violence, hate, inaccuracies, scientific errors, mathematical mistakes, logical absurdities, grammatical solecisms and dubious ethical pronouncements in the book of God .” Under the (mis)guidance of the Qur’anic revelations and sunna, Muslims live in a ghostly world of fearful piety, surrounded by devils, jinns crossing themselves a hundred times....'
But what if the Qur'an is made up – not 'god created' or 'uncreated' ? What if the Qur'an was built over hundreds of years by humans, starting with Muhammad and ending some 200 years later ? What if many Qur'ans exist ? What if the Allah-thing never had a hand or interest in the handbook of Muhammadan violence and raging supremacist hate ? Islam fails and falls spectacularly.
There is not 'a' single Qur'an, but many different versions, including texts that are palimpsets, or papers with one verse written over top of an existing verse, a crude method to both save paper and correct an existing copy.
During the seventies, Wansbrough concluded that Qur’an evolved only gradually in the seventh and eighth centuries after a long period of oral transmissions and different sects used to argue furiously with each other on the genuineness of the revelations. The reason that no Islamic source material from the very beginning of Islam never survived is because it never existed. In fact Puin admitted that he was 're-reading Wansbrough' during the course of analyzing the Yemeni fragments (Warraq, 2002, p. 122). Puin’s other radical theory is that pre-Islamic sources have entered the Qur’an. He argues that two tribes it mentions, As-Sahab-ar-Rass (Companions of the Well) and the As-Sahab-al-Aiqa (Companions of the Thorny Bushes) were not part of the Arab tradition, and the people of Muhammad’s time certainly did not know about them. He also disagrees that Qur’an was written in the purest Arabic. The very word 'Qur’an” itself is of foreign origin.'
Qur'an is not an Arab word meaning 'recital' but an Aramaic word denoting 'a lectionary of scripture of portions appointed to be read during a divine service'. Moslems are thus basing their entire existence on a book, named by a language no longer in existence, premised on practices which were never Islamic.
It is clear, and has been for centuries, that the Qur'an is man-made and evolved over a long period of time. Once Moslems understand this, they will need to leave their cult. The edifice of Islam is blown apart, once the Qur'an is proven false [which its words, texts, ideas, and racist-supremacist rage already does]:
Bothmer had painstakingly finished taking more than thirty-five thousand microfilm pictures by 1997 and brought the pictures back to Germany (Warraq, 2002, p. 109). It means; now Bothmer, Puin and other scholars will finally have a chance to scrutinize the texts and to publish their findings freely. Puin already wrote several short essays on their findings in various science magazines where he pointed out several aberrations between the ancient Qur’an and the present standard one. The extraordinary discovery of Puin had fascinated Rippin, as he concluded (cited Warraq, 2002, p. 110), 'The impact of the Yemeni manuscripts is still to be felt. Their variant readings and verse orders are all very significant. Everybody agrees on that. These manuscripts say that the early history of Qur’anic text is much more of an open question than many have suspected. The text was less stable and therefore had less authority than has always been claimed'.
Inscriptions of several Qur’anic verses are decorated on the Dome of Rock of Jerusalem which is most probably the first Islamic monument meant to be a major artistic achievement, built in 691 (Whelan, 1998, pp. 1-14). These inscriptions significantly differ from the present standard text. Coins from 685 have inscriptions that do not match today’s verses (Warraq, 2000, p. 34).
The fact that the Qur'an or Muhammad's mad handbook of hate and violence is the work of men is hardly a surprise to the objective thinker. It does however shake the Moslem world to its very foundation. If the Qur'an is false, plagiarized, inconsistent, contradictory, fragmentary, debased, debauched, and mad then what of the cult itself ? If the Qur'an is nothing more than a Mein Kampf of Arab Imperialism the entire joke that Submission is a 'religion' is destroyed. No more protection for Moslems in Western states. No more piety at the UN as they declaim against whites, Jews and Westerners. No more soft-ball media coverage as the mainstream elite coddles, hugs and kisses the Moslem cult. It all falls apart.
Qur’anic sacredness and the very “romantic” concept of the Qur’an will gradually disappear, and a very interesting development can be observed. The first question which will appear in their mind is – which version is superior. But then, it is not possible to choose a Qur’an and discard the other copies by preference, because the Muslim belief also confirms that whoever denies a single verse of the Qur’an denies the entire revelation.
The only logical and inescapable forecast for Islam is that it will implode and cease to exist. No one knows when this will happen but the destruction of Islam is assured. Rational, real-world facts make it clear that at some point Islam as a cult 'on the march' will not subjugate the world, but simply fade and wither. Many of Islam's 1.6 billion slaves will thus have a chance to unchain themselves from Muhammad's madness. This future event has much to commend itself.
