A true religion has to free the mind, the body, the spirit and the individual. A religion demands that you use the God-given tools granted to you including your mind to achieve truth, beauty, perfection and understanding. A religion will not put you or another human into chains. A religion does not force you to memorize, repeat, prostrate yourself, or mumble phrases in a language you don't understand. A religion demands that your mind understand and accept the ethical program which is premised on the Golden Rule and Natural Law Rights. A religion's core must be centred around these two key ideals. They are the foundations for freeing the human. [link]
Islam is not a religion. It is a cult. The basis of the Islamic cult can be found in the pre-Muhammadan celestial cults which permeated the Arabian peninsula. The Koran is not 'uncreated' but has clear antecedents stretching from Yemen to Syria, in arcs of time bending back to hundreds of years before Muhammad the mad-poet, and fascist totalitarian made his ill-gotten appearance on this planet.
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. [Koran is man-made]
It is obvious that the Koran is both gibberish and entirely human-created. It is the handbook, the Mein Kampf, of the Moslem cult.
Bizarrely for this cult, the main object of veneration is the conflation of Muhammad with the Allah-thing. This is ironic since Moslems scream that polytheists must be killed. Yet in reading the Koran and Muhammad's intolerant demands, it is very hard indeed to separate Muhammad from the Allah-idol. Moslems in effect pray to both.
The main deity that the Moslem cult worships is of course a moon deity. The ilah or 'Lord' is not God, but Hub'Al the male moon deity of Mecca. This is clear to anyone who has read Meccan, pre-Muhammadan history. [See proof here for example]. Hub'Al the main ilah had a wife or consort Al'Lat [the Sun] and 2 daugthers widely assumed to be Venus and perhaps Mars or Sirius [Manat, 'Uzza]. Allah or ilah, has no historical connection whatsoever to Christianity's idea of a divine essence. [link]
Like all cults Islam possesses the following characteristics, on display for 1400 years, and manifested daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, wherever it has befouled the ground with its existence:
-The political – totalitarian imperative of control, submerges the rest of civil society into the cult. Church, the state, the individual, are all subsumed into the cult
-The individual is simply a tool for the cult and the state
-Intolerance [1600 verses of Jihad, violence and hate-speech soak the Koran]
-Demonizing the other in which Christians, Jews and Pagans are targeted by the Koran and by Islamic practice, for destruction
-No higher metaphysical purpose or ethics
-Strictures around punishment and forcible submission
-No free will [Only the Allah idol has free-will]
-Immanent purpose to conquer through force, all of humanity
-Misogyny and male-domination
-Obsession with male-power and free-sex
-Extolling and accepting slavery [still practised today]
-Everything you need to know is in the Koran [negates science, enquiry, free-thinking]
The Kabaa shrine at Mecca was built 600 years before Mad Muhammad. It has a long history of pagan rites and even prostitution [stopped by the Moslems]. Throwing rocks at little devils, kissing a black asteroid rock, circumambulation around the shrine, profound groveling to images and idols – all of this and much more was and still is, a part of Kabaa-lore. Islam simply took over the existing pagan rites of the Meccans and pronounced them divine. This was done of course as a political trade-off. You worship your idols and keep your rites, as long as Allahu Akhbar or Allah is greatest amongst the idols.
The Moslem world negates archaeology and investigation into Islam. There is a reason for this. The more that the world discovers about this pagan-fascist cult, the less tolerance it will have for it. Moslem arrogance, irrationality, bigotry and idiotic violence is premised on its failed culture, itself a derivative of cult doctrine better left behind in the Bronze Age. In fact Hammurabi's 1750 BC codex has plenty in common with the illiteracy one finds in the Koran.
What can be done? Islam will always be a failure. No reform to this cult will ever occur. No reformation, renaissance, or interposition of reality and rationality will make an appearance. Islam is a closed, quite fascistic and intolerant dogma. At some point in time it will simply implode due to the weight of its own amoral stupidity.
