I would love to hear from the Tundra Tabloids’ Muslim readers and apologists, what they think of the following. What do they really think of the fact that the Muslim god, Allah, whom they worship, is really the pagan god Al-ilah?
“Historians say that pre-Islamic Arabs worshipped the moon-god by bowing in prayer toward Mecca several times a day. They would also make a pilgrimage to Mecca, run around the Kabah seven times and throw stones at the devil. And they fasted for one month, which began with the appearance of the crescent moon and ended when the crescent moon reappeared.
These same rites form the core of Islam today: Muslims bow in prayer toward Mecca; they make a pilgrimage to Mecca and run around the Kabah seven times; and they still throw stones at the devil. They also observe the fast of Ramadan, which begins and ends with the crescent moon.
Moreover, the ancient symbol of the pagan moon-god, the crescent moon, is the official symbol of Islam; it appears on the flags of Muslim countries, as well as on the tops of mosques and minarets everywhere.”
Kind of puts the idea of a “shared belief in the same God” into the category of myth and canard. More here. *L* KGS
Note: Islam cannot stand the test of textual criticism and scientific archeology, that’s why both sciences –concerning Islam– are passionately rejected.
