Western Civilisation was and is superior to anything Islam has developed. Islam has not aided in the development of the modern world; in fact civilisation has only been created in spite of Islam. Raising the alarm about the fascism called Submission since 2000.
The Middle Ages, by Morris Bishop
In the current modern dark age where a fascism like Islam means 'peace', and plant food causes weather, climate or some globaloney; it is always amusing to hear people discuss in an age saturated with information, but deficient in knowledge and wisdom, the terrible 'dark ages' of Western Christendom. The thousands of Western European inventions between 500-1550, have no other equal in history. But of course, all of them were generated by that great and wonderful Moslem culture, so beneficent, so tolerant, so inspiring, so advanced. This is why Islam is such a paradise today.
Bishop's book is real, devoid of cultural Marxist babble and rubble; fairly balanced and informative.
Hospitals – a Christian invention, flourished.
“Hospitals abounded. In the High Middle Ages, there were 400 in England, and by the time of the Reformation, there were 750. Thirteenth-century Paris had twelve hospitals, with special maternity wards, and also a lazar house and an asylum for the blind. Generally they were supervised by Augustinian monks and nuns; the actual nursing was done by humble lay brothers and sisters, who had renounced the world to serve the unfortunate. Most hospitals were vast halls with partitions, such as the famous Hotel Dieu at Beaune in Burgundy. They were brightened with flowers; their rooms were more cheerful than most modern wards are.”
Social welfare hijacked today by Social Justice Marxists, was a Church priority:
“The church also promoted economic welfare, helping to build and maintain roads and bridges. The bishop of Metz in 1233 ordered that the best suit of clothes of every person who died in the diocese be sold to pay for a bridge over the Moselle. This is the Pont des Morts, which still stands. Many monastic farms were models, introducing new crops and techniques, including the scientific breeding of cattle.”
“The church maintained hospitals, leprosaria, almshouses, orphanages, and hospices along Alpine passes. It fought the remnants of slavery, which lingered in Western lands; a London council in 1102 forbade “the ignoble trade whereby men are sold like beasts.” The church ransomed prisoners and repatriated Christian slaves from Muslim lands. The orders of Trinitarians and Ransomers offered their own bodies to free those whose salvation was in danger. The Penitent Sisters of St. Magdalen reclaimed prostitutes. A kind of Travelers Aid Society succored pilgrims. A poor-relief system was decreed for every parish; the poor were entitled to one-fourth of the tithes and one-half of all other donations to the church. Often, however, the yield was disappointing.”
Relics and cults were viewed with suspicion:
“Sober ecclesiastics, including the great Pope Innocent III, took alarm at the cult of relics and tried to bring it within reasonable bounds. At first, they could do little to counter the vested interests of famous shrines and the need of simple folk for symbols of hope and comfort. Eventually, doubt and skepticism increased, even among the devout. When the Reformation came, mountains of ancient bones were gleefully burned on bonfires. Relics were a particular attraction for medieval pilgrims. The impulse to go on pilgrimage lies deep in the human spirit...”
The Church kept the world together:
“The church fulfilled many of the functions of the modern state. Church courts tried civil and criminal cases involving clerics, and their decisions on such matters as marriage, divorce, and bequests were binding and enforceable by local constables. The church alone controlled scholarship and book production; it alone cared for the poor, the sick, and the aged. It had jurisdiction over all students as well as over priests, monks, lay brothers, and a horde of “clerks” in minor orders, who enjoyed “benefit of clergy” with practically no obligations. The proportion of clerics to the population was perhaps ten times as large as it is today. The church was, in sum, more than the patron of medieval culture; it was medieval culture.”
Protestants, Atheists, the poorly named 'Enlightenment' [witch burnings, religious wars, bigotry, Puritanism etc.]; and other revisionist theology should not be accepted without understanding their bias, their bile, their objectives and dogma. A hard age, an era of transformation, action and initiative, was not dark. It was different and it was the foundation for the modern world.
Phd Morey's common sense study of the cult named Submission, most likely would not find its way into print today. Suppressing facts, evidence, testimony and reality is now deemed 'free speech'. Morey would most likely end up in court or jail in many jurisdictions for 'hate speech' which considering Mein Koran is one long screed of hate, and the Meccan cult is a mixture of racist, supremacist and misognynist ravings; is rather obtuse. But there you have it – the decline of Western culture into the psychopathologically sick morass of cultural Marxism. The protection of a Bronze age inspired cult whose Mein Koran 'law' reads like the inane tortures commanded by Hammurabi's 1750 BC codex, is lauded and applauded as the highest form of tolerance.
Morey on the moon cult:
“In Arabia, the sun god was viewed as a female goddess and the moon as the male god. As has been pointed out by many scholars such as Alfred Guillaume, the moon god was called by various names, one of which was Allah. The name Allah was used as the personal name of the moon good versus other titles that could be given to him.” [p. 48] [In fact Mein Koran lists 99 names for the moon god].
“Allah, the moon god, was married to the sun goddess. Together they produced three goddesses who were called the 'daughters of Allah'. These three goddesses were called Al-Lat, Al-Uzza, and Manat.” [p. 49] [In fact Al-Lat is often used to refer to the Sun goddess, so many believe that Uzza and Manat or Venus and Mars, were the only 2 daughters].
The Arabs were astro-worshippers as were most Near Eastern peoples. The moon had an especially important role to play in cooling temperatures, heralding seasonal change, and providing a permanent source of calender creation and organization. Baal, the Babylonian Sin, or moon deity, was the Al Lah or Lord of Mecca.
“The Quraysh tribe into which Muhammad was born was particularly devoted to Allah, the moon god and especially to Allah's three daughters who were viewed as intercessors between them and Allah. The worship of the three goddesses, Al-Lat, Al-Uzaa and Manat played a significant role in the worship at the Kabah in Mecca.” [p. 49]
When Muhammad conquered Mecca with his 10.000 man personal army, his first act was to destroy all of the 360 idols of the Kabah shrine bar one – that of Baal the Lord of Mecca, resplendent in red sandstone. The rest, including Baal's daughters, were effaced. A practice that Moslems still employ today- destroying all non Koranic images and structures.
What is Morey's main point ? The cult of Submission or Islam, is a pagan Arabian construct, completely divorced and different than Judaism and Christianity.
“The Quran's concept of deity evolved out of a pre-Islamic pagan religion. It is so uniquely Arabian that it cannot be simply reduced to Jewish or Christian beliefs. It is rooted in pagan ideas of God.” [p.51]
Morey's statement is so obvious that it should be common knowledge. However, the media, the education systems, the 'experts', the politicians and the general cadre of corrupts and incompetents, preach the opposite. Mein Koran and the veneration of Mein Fuehrer Muhammad are constructs built around moon worship. How Bronze Age. How pagan. For more info on why Islam is a moon cult, a reading list of articles is here.
Phd [appeal to authority!] Morey studied the Moslem [un] holy texts back in the 1970s and 80s, long before the 97% scientific consensus that Islam is peace, existed; and concluded that Islam was and is a pagan cult devoid of religiosity. He produced books and articles on the same theme. Today of course he would not be granted a Phd for such thought crimes. In the UK and elsewhere he would be jailed for hate speech.
Anyone who has studied pre-Muhammadan and Islamic history, would not be shocked by what Morley had to say some 20 years ago. It is a sign of the illiterate times that his work is not better known, and his given facts, not widely distributed. Consider:
-Mein Koran was cobbled together by Muhammad [eg the short Suras or poems], from pre-existing material. [p. 34] “In the end the Muslim must give up his belief in the heavenly origin of the Quran. If this is done, Islam cannot stand.” [p. 43]
-The word Islam, pre-dates Muhammad by millennia, and was originally employed to denote bravery and courage in the face of impossible odds. 'The word slowly developed into the meaning of 'submission' as Dr. Jane Smith at Harvard University has demonstrated.' [p. 35].
-Killing non Moslems comes right out of the Arabian tribal mentality: “It should be emphasized that the Arabs did not regard killing a person as in itself wrong. It was wrong if the person was a member of your kin-group or an allied group; and in Islam this meant the killing of any believer [4:92].” [p. 36]
-Moon worship and the Sabeans. Al Lah means the Lord, who was of course Baal the male moon god first imported from Babylonia. Cosmological worship was rife in the Arabian peninsula and directly informs the cult of submission. “...the dominant religion that had grown very powerful just before Muhammad's time was that of The Sabean's. The Sabeans had an astral religion in that they worshipped the heavenly bodies. The moon was viewed as a male deity and the sun the female deity. Together they produced other deities such as the starts. The Quran refers to this in Sura 41:37 and elsewhere. They used a lunar calendar...the phases of the moon.” [p.40] The Islamic world still uses a lunar calendar today.
-Allah is a moon god whose identity is never clarified in Mein Koran. It did not need a definition. All Arabs knew who Baal or the Lord was: “Dr. Arthur Jeffery, who was one of the foremost Western Islamic scholars in modern times....'The name Allah, as the Quran itself is witness, was well known in pre-Islamic Arabia. Indeed, both it and its feminine form, Allat, are found not infrequently among theophorous names in inscriptions from North Africa.' [p. 45]
-The name Al Lah “According to the Encyclopedia of Religion; 'Allah' is a pre-Islamic name....corresponding to the Babylonian Bel.' [p. 46] Bel or Sin was the moon deity of Babylon [Mout Sinai, is thus the Mountain of the Moon deity].
-The pagan heathen nature of Islam is easily seen in its rites, rituals, pilgrimmage, kissing of rocks, throwing rocks at devils, circa-ambulation of the Kabaa, rubbing of rocks against the vagina for fertility, and other artifacts of the Bronze age customs one could find in Mecca in 600 AD. “Alfred Guillaume, who was Head of the Department of the Near and Middle East...at the University of London...'The customs of heathenism have left an indelible mark on Islam, notably in the rites of pilgrimage.' [p. 41]
-Why is the Bible so messed up and garbled in Mein Koran ? “Some of the heretical teachings of the Gnostics were present in pre-Islamic Arabia in such fraudulent 'Gospels' as the 'The Gospel of Barnabas'. These Gnostic 'gospels' began to appear in the latter part of the 3rd century and reached their highest influence during the 4th to 7th centuries. Their presence in pre-Islamic Arabia is well known.” [p. 42]
The cult of submission is suffused with pagan rites, it worships a moon deity, it has an incoherent and inaccurate opinion about the Old and New Testaments, and it targets Jews and Christians [and those outside the Muslim tribe or Umma] for destruction. The huge brains of the world deem the above to be religious. And we have not even mentioned the duty of Jihad, misogyny, sex trading, polygamy, bronze age death sentences.....
