You seem to say that praying to statues is wrong, but dont Muslims pray 5 times a day facing a pagan temple with a black rock you seem to worrship?

Is not the Kabbah nothing more than a uncreative pagan idol to a moon god that Arabs have prayed to for centuries before Mohammed?

I cannot see the difference? An idol is a physical object people use in devotional acts.

How can you not describe the Kabbah as a Idol? Was not then Kabbah built to house a black rock that pagan Arabs found and they thought it was sent by a moon god, and then they housed other objects from their other gods there too?

So Mohammed really just liked the moon God more, is that why Muslims follow a Luna calendar which is very inaccurate as opposed to the canendar the civilized world uses?

Is it true that you keep the lunar calendar so not to offend your moon god?

I find it funny how you pray to a pagan moon god 5 times a day, and worship a rock, yet go on about idol worshippers and how it displeases god. if idol worship is so wrong, why do they do it 5 times a day?

Even if the quran made sense, using that as a basis, why do Muslims worship Mohammed, because even according to the Koran, Mohammed was not mentioned nearly as much as the Jewish Prophets?

Also does not the obvious criminality of Mohammed negate the likelihood that a real God would use him as a messenger? God would not make basic mistakes in mathematics like Mohammed did. God you not use as a messenger someone who murdered, raped, stole, lied and bullied people. Why would God use as a messenger a racist and a child molesting slave owner?

Even thing Muslims claim their so called religion stands for, always seem to translate to the opposite in the practices and implementalion of islam.

Islam, where ever it is, spreads hatred and war, it discriminates against everybody except Muslim males of Arabic origin. It promotes Mohammed as a Goid like figure and demands the worship of a black rock in a pagan temple. It treats women as chattels and children as sex objects.

... I hope one day AAA you will understand you have been lied to, and deceived.

Hitler and the Nazi were inherently evil, this does not mean all Germans during the Nazi Era were evil. but Nazism utilized baser human instincts to get the German people to support and do evil things. It is the same with Islam, it promotes hatred, it wants total control of its followers and it wants domination.

Not all Muslims are evil, only a few are ...
