I verified DNM's description of why Muhammad's answer to the question re women's intellect

Dear Reader, I verified DNM's translation of the above Arabic saying. The translation turned out to be pure gibberish. Muhammad used circular logic, brought in irrelevant facts and did not make much sense.

People often blame the Arabic language for this kind of disasters. I will translate some verses of an Arabic version of the Bible. I will check if that also becomes difficult to make sense of.

Was the Kuoan ever meant to be understood?

If it is the fault of Google's translation, then Muslims should prohibit Google from translating Islamic texts. For all you know, they might succeed.
