I’m starting to get quite scared of the level of willful ignorance found within the vocal members of Islam. Yes I know, some of you will say “Yes but don’t judge all Muslims by the voices of the few loud people.” Well I don’t. In fact the only Muslims I judge are those with influence who willingly spread the ignorant nature of their religion with hate-speak and misinformation. The rest are just people, and shall be judged by the merits of their actions. These vocal spokespeople of Islam (and to a less dangerous degree Christianity) are up on podiums telling their congregations not only to trust in the words of their god Allah (which as we all know were written by man), but that all information that humans have is not only unimportant, but false. The video below shows this perfectly.
The level of ignorance, and the promoting of ignorance, is clearly seen here. People don’t abstain from pork because of Allah. People had already been abstaining from pork for centuries before the Koran was even conceived, not because God forbade it, but because of an illness that struck pork-eaters called trichinosis caused by a parasitic worm found in raw or undercooked pork, which can cause death in severe cases. Yes a religion is a good way to stop the otherwise uninformed from eating a potentially lethal food, but I ask you, is it more likely that the part about pork was included in the Koran and the Old Testament because of the already known disease, or that God or Allah only decided reasonably recently that it was such a problem that it should be banned? It is ridiculous.
So the ignorance of Islam is such that the information provided by science is not enough. It doesn’t matter. And this guy is promoting ignorance on a scale that could kill many more people than trichinosis ever could. The message is clear; don’t trust science, don’t trust the doctors, don’t trust medicine, it’s all a trick to damn you into hell. It really is verging on mental retardation. Islam is in a state that Christianity was in over 400 years ago, where piety and denial is more important than facts. This kind of misinformation serves only to steer the gullible and the ignorant toward whatever outcome the translator of the religion has in mind.
To call the practices and beliefs of Islam with science a “sickness” is a great way to get people to fear science. Rather than focus on the real illnesses like the complications caused by trichinosis, tell people that the seeking of knowledge through scientific endeavor is actually an illness, and you have effectively quashed any interest in science among Muslims.
I don’t know what the particular pathology of Islamics is, but it is without doubt the single most divisive and deluded belief structure on earth. If it weren’t for the fact that so many people followed Islam, we would condemn it as the ravings of lunatics.
Don’t even get me started with this guy:
