Quote Of The Day — May 9, 2015

.

If the people of this religion [Islam] are asked about the proof for the soundness of their religion, they flare up, get angry and spill the blood of whoever confronts them with this question. They forbid rational speculation, and strive to kill their adversaries. This is why truth became thoroughly silenced and concealed.
You claim that the evidentiary miracle is present and available, namely, the Koran. You say: “Whoever denies it, let him produce a similar one.” Indeed, we shall produce a thousand similar, from the works of rhetoricians, eloquent speakers and valiant poets, which are more appropriately phrased and state the issues more succinctly. They convey the meaning better and their rhymed prose is in better meter. … By God what you say astonishes us! You are talking about a work which recounts ancient myths, and which at the same time is full of contradictions and does not contain any useful information or explanation. Then you say: “Produce something like it”?!

Muhammad ibn Zakariyā Rāzī, (865 – 925 AD) was a Persian physician, alchemist, chemist, philosopher, and scholar.

      Good Morning, Uriel. How so very true. And this has been going on now for almost 1,500 years. So, NO, all too many people haven’t learned yet, nor are they willing to.
