Me vs Islam: How to Abandon the Nonsense

What is the best way to refute the Koran? The best way to know it’s nonsense? Read it!

For example, read the chapter called “Al Nisa (Women)”, verse 34:

“Men are overseers over women because Allah has given the one more strength than other, and because men are required to spend their wealth for the maintenance of women. Honorable women are, therefore, devoutly obedient and guard in the husband’s absence what Allah require them to guard their husband’s property and their own honor. As to those women from whom you fear disobedience, first admonish them, then refuse to share your bed with them, and then, if necessary, beat them. Then if they obey you, take no further actions against them and do not make excuses to punish them. Allah is Supremely Great and is aware of your actions.”

Isn’t this truly beautiful? Men essentially own women, and if women don’t want them (translation to Islamic language: Are disobedient) then you can beat them. Of course, after you asked them nicely and left them alone in bed that is!

Now, these days apologists have tried many things to justify this. Including stating “It’s mistranslated!” Yes, right. Good old mistranslation…

Your God seems awfully bad with his communication skills. Which means his resume is a lie: Omnipotent and Omniscient my ass!

Dear fellow Homo sapiens, or if you prefer conscious mammals! And of course, friends nonetheless: I created my blog in order to speak my very weird mind, mostly about three subjects (as I identify myself and my state of mind with them): Atheism, as I was born in the Middle East and saw and felt the affects of Islam; Homosexuality and equal rights, as a gay man who has tasted the Homophobia and also Sexism in that society; and Liberalism and political philosophy, which I think is a good ground for secular values and criticism of fundamentalism. If you wish, visit and join your state of mind to mine. I hope they don't short circuit!
