in response to reader comment: How can I express the expressable?

My Dear Salah,

Has it ever occured to you that the Koran that you can hold in your hand is not a true Koran? Such an idea has been axiomatic amongst my own folk since from a time before the writing of words. We have always known this so we do not hold any book as an absolute authority, nor do we put any book in the place of the Most High G-D. To do so for us would be considered the most vile form of blasphemy. We know full well that the true word of the G-D is written in the blood of our veins and in the marrow of our bones. The book is for those who are too blind to know this. But they are not to be blamed for their blindness for they have not developed sufficiently to be able to see. They are like new born kittens whos eyes have not yet opened. We must wait until such a time that their eyes are opened before we can begin to teach them. Such is the case with the majority of men in the world. They are still yet blind and unknowing infants.

Would you commend the farmer who flogs the sapling crying " Why do you produce no fruit"? NO! That is because the tree cannot produce any fruit until it has matured to the point of productivity. You cannot force the hand of G-D and that is just what you Muslims are trying to do in our world. Can't you see that this is madness? It takes a certain degree of spiritual maturity in order to percieve the ONENESS of G-D. If a people has not yet achieved that degree of development they must percieve at the level of a child. So like are the majority of men in our world and that includes the majority of Muslim men.

There are two kinds of men in the world. There are those who seek the G-Ds wisdom and there are those who seek the G-Ds power. Those who seek the G-Ds wisdom are a blessing. Those who seek the G-Ds power are a curse. You must choose whos side you are on.
