Response to Answer 10

[[That this premarin is the reason why your so called prophet told Muslims to drink camels urine and he never said right?Really? you just told us and this is what you wrote:]]

Reread again, the urine have the substance that can beneficial for visiting tribes for per say e.g premarine. Also, the advice was given to the visiting tribes. Not a general advice for many. Did it work? Indeed it works. Reread the story. The advice did cure the visiting tribes. And they proceeded to take profit from the camels illegally.


Response to Answer 13

[[Oh the word الصلب ? They had no clue about what it means]]

Reread again http://beta.quran.com/86/7. 6 translations provided for you.

[[This means that your revered sources say that semen comes from the area between your back and the lower four ribs or YOUR LOIN! and what do you have in your loin? Hint: your kidneys! So does semen come from your kidneys?]]

Its good that you agreed that there is no kidney mention in the verse. But rather its was just you assumption of interpreting what is the organ involved. Also reread the link posted.

[[And here is the foolish Pickthall translation: that issued from between the loins and ribs]]

Try rereading from where fluid surge? Indeed seminal vesicles is from between ribs and the loins/lower back. Nothing wrong with the statement.

As for Tabarani interpretation of the verse, there's nothing wrong when reading interpretations. If one interpret wrongly, it can be corrected with facts. And undeniably the verses of Quran still do no contradict truths and facts.


[[1. Is it true that she was 9 years old when she had sex with Muhammad and he was 53 years old and would you allow your 9 daughter to marry a 53 year old man with 22 wives and concubines? A yes or no answer would do]]

God never forbid marrying young woman as long as they had attained puberty. Prophet that rule lands have many wives for reason of uniting tribes.

Even during the Israelite era, you will see tradition of young women getting married at young age.

And in Roman Christianity, bishop of the past sets age of consummation at age 7 years old and above. No issue really.


[[Is it true as the Shia tell us that 'Aisha used to cheat on Muhammad and she used to breast feed the young men of Quraish?]]

Perhaps the Shia was refferring to a case about having ex slave now having status of free man in a house during an era in Arabia where slavery was progressively abolished by Islam. There are narrations about a young boy (10-12 years old) that just reaches threshold of puberty, he gets categorized as young men. Since he is no longer a slave, for him to be allowed living freely, he need to be part of family member. Thus suggestion was given so that he need to be part of family by act of suckling. There are also opinions saying it was thru drinking of only milk.


[[Then you tell us if your Allah is such a great creator how come 25% of pregnancies end in spontaneous abortions because of major malformations in the fetus? Any guesses?]]

If spontaneous abortions happened, then these evens are part of what we call sunnatullah. Path of God decreed onto its creation.

For example sunnatullah in space, when lump of rocks form together, planet is born. Sometimes planet fails to be formed if the order is not met.

[[Leave Islam and leave all this nonsense behind you and be free. Do it! You can do it]]

Study about Islam. Study about covenant meant for mankind. In the past, covenants were sent by God to specific nations (different places and era). In Islamic tradition they were 3++ covenants for specific nations. And Islam is the covenant meant for mankind. Do not give up on worshippping the Creator. Believe in the Creator.
