Defending Allah

I am often amused by the claims that the gods need defending. I need no defending from an ant. 

In the word’s of a famous fictitious god…

I’ve walked across the surface of the sun, seen events so tiny and so fast that they hardly can be said to have occurred at all. But you, Adrian…are just a man. And the world’s smartest man poses no more threat to me than does its smartest termite.

If Allah should exist, I fear that witty and incisive bloggers with sexy tans and stylishly shaved heads would do little to harm him.

Yet it boggles the mind about the number of people who wish to defend their immeasurably powerful objects of faith. That these beings of creation and destruction are harmed by me claiming that Allah is an imaginary creature. The sort of imaginary friend who occasionally tells you to burn everything.

Saudi Arabia’s Comission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice has decided to defend Allah. Several bloggers and atheists are on a list submitted to the interior ministry to arrest several people for the crime of apostasy and atheism. It is coordinating closely with the Commission for Telecommunication to block and shut down pornography and sites that promote atheism and apostasy.

Which means that this blog will not be available in Saudi Arabia if these people do their jobs. It amuses me that I pose a greater threat to Islam than ISIS or rising islamic fundamentalism or falling education standards. As of now anyone insulting the god that is called Allah and the prophet Mohammed is a target for arrest.

Another example of how deadly the lunacy of state sponsored religion can be? Violations include the use of misleading mobile and computer applications like Tor or Encryption software. Even “non-acceptable” versions of the Quran can get you arrested. That means the Skeptic’s Annotated Quran is sufficient to get you arrested.

All to protect the feelings of an all powerful god. Porn and knock  off Qurans are kryptonite to Allah.

In order to maintain the status quo of Islam, Saudi Arabia takes more steps to stifle any non-party line dialogue. And it doesn’t even have the decency to set it to a catchy song.

    Allah must be a very weak god if he needs protection from people who publicly don’t believe in him.

    I would find it amusing if there were people who adamantly believed that I didn’t exist and wrote books about it. :)
    And if it bothers him so much, it’s not like he lacks he power to take over every TV, computer, cell phone, radio, loudspeaker, etc. and announce his existence with everyone hearing it in their own language and then make all amputees grow their missing limbs back at an appointed hour.

    If you assume that an omniscient, omnipotent God exists, it follows inescapably, given observed reality, that He is a sadist. It makes more sense to assume a nonsentient universe.

    @3…well, to be fair, Allah could also be an incompetent boob, or just lazy and unconcerned.

    Sadism involves action. I see very little action from Allah. Or any of the other gods.

    Considering Allah is supposed to be the same deity as the one in the bible:

    “If there is a God, he is a malign thug.”
    (Mark Twain / 1835-1910)

    I’ve always assumed that the truly fanatical have put themselves so close to god that sometimes they regard themselves as god’s spiritual adviser, and therefore, any insults directed at god are actually insults against the true fanatic – who feels compelled to immediately go on the defensive. I could be wrong.

    Just shows the level of intelligence that surrounds this earth. You would feel the need to defend your parent when someone bad mouths them or swear’s them, and your parents may not be around to defend themselves, but mock people who defend their creator from idiocy and people who makes the most pathetic statements that ever exist, which can’t even be defined as blasphemy. Unless the level of respect you have for the people who brought you into this world are believed to be just some fanatical creatures, and thus have not been given respect. God created one man Adam and one women Eve, did you really believe that monkeys are your ancestors ? Who created monkeys then ? Baboons or the Gorillas ? Where do you believe or how did it all begin ? Having to defend Allah is to us much greater then then the love we have for parents. If you can’t understand Islam, what gives you the right to mock it ? I don’t know either one of you, but humility is something every human is created with, having to hate is something that’s taught. To love is easier then to hate, love doesn’t have to be taught whereas hate does. Respect for the next person and whatever they believe in, is in fact every human right. Its in a country’s right to protect the definition of love and respect. So your idiotic request of God announcing his existance is like asking pigs to fly. If you have no knowledge of religion, and the origin of it, then please your intelligence could be useful at the public zoo, and can be tested on animals. God had already revealed his existence over and over again, doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. Fools over decades seem to reincarnate and still have not grown from centuries ago, as they too asked for sign’s from God, and when he did eventually prove his existence, man was never be satisfied, as you have proven. So it may be imaginary or fanatical or fictitious to you, but to us time will reveal all. But I’m so intrigued to find out how do you all think, man came into existence ? Or who created earth and everything that lives on this planet. How did it all begin, if God to you doesn’t exist ?
