‘Curiosity heard Islamic call to prayer on Mars and became a Muslim!’

I would not be shocked if Muslims say Mars rover Curiosity heard azaan, the Islamic call to prayer, on Mars and became a Muslim. Some idiots have been busy to spread rumors that Neil Armstrong the first man to walk on the moon became a Muslim since the early 80′s. Those idiots can easily make Curiosity a Muslim. Curiosity would become a Muslim exactly the way Neil Armstrong became a Muslim. Neil Armstrong heard azaan while he was walking on the Moon. After returning to Earth Neil converted to Islam. Will the U.S. State Department issue a statement on Curiosity like they issued a statement on Neil Armstrong?

NEIL A. ARMSTRONG

LEBANON, OHIO 45036

July 14,1983

Mr. Phil Parshall Director

Asian Research Center

International Christian

Fellowship 29524 Bobrich

Livonia, Michigan 48152

Dear Mr. Parshall:

Mr. Armstrong has asked me to reply to your letter and to thank you for the courtesy of your inquiry. The reports of his conversion to Islam and of hearing

the voice of Adzan on the moon and elsewhere are all untrue.

Several publications in Malaysia, Indonesia and other countries have published these reports without verification. We apologize for any inconvenience that this ncompetent journalism may have caused you.

Subsequently, Mr. Armstrong agreed to participate in a telephone interview, reiterating his reaction to these stories. I am enclosing copies of the United States

State Department’s communications prior to and after that interview.

Sincerely

Vivian White

Administrative Aide

The State had to issue another statement.

SUBJECT: ALLEGED CONVERSION OF NEIL ARMSTRONG TO ISLAM

———————————————

REF: JAKARTA 3081 AND 2374 (NOT ..)

1. FORMER ASTRONAUT NEIL ARMSTRONG, NOW IN PRIVATE

BUSINESS, HAS BEEN THE SUBJECT OF PRESS REPORTS IN

EGYPT, MALAYSIA AND INDONESIA (AND PERHAPS ELSEWHERE)

ALLEGING HIS CONVERSION TO ISLAM DURING HIS LANDING ON

THE MOON IN 1969. AS A RESULT OF SUCH REPORTS,

ARMSTRONG HAS RECEIVED COMMUNICATIONS FROM INDIVIDUALS

AND RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS, AND A FEELER FROM AT LEAST

ONE GOVERNMENT, ABOUT HIS POSSIBLE PARTICIPATION IN

ISLAMIC ACTIVITIES.

2. WHILE STRESSING HIS STRONG DESIRE NOT TO OFFEND

ANYONE OR SHOW DISRESPECT FOR ANY RELIGION, ARMSTRONG

HAS ADVISED DEPARTMENT THAT REPORTS OF HIS CONVERSION

TO ISLAM ARE INACCURATE.

3. IF POST RECEIVE QUERIES ON THIS MATTER, ARMSTRONG

REQUESTS THAT THEY POLITELY BUT FIRMLY INFORM QUERYING

PARTY THAT HE HAS NOT CONVERTED TO ISLAM AND HAS NO

CURRENT PLANS OR DESIRE TO TRAVEL OVERSEAS TO

PARTICIPATE IN ISLAMIC RELIGIOUS ACTIVITIES.

But most Muslims threw all the statements into waste paper baskets. Some Muslims tried to accept the truth though. Will Muslims who forcefully circumcised Neil Armstrong leave the little Curiosity alone? Let’s wait and see.

    Is there a name for these inspiration conspiracy theories pitched to the religious? It’s not quite the same as a glurge, I think.

    This is still slightly less obnoxious than the Mormons converting people posthumously.

    There are still a few historians around who suggest Napoleon Boneparte became a moslem. Napoleon was certainly willing to take over Italy, home of the Pope, after his forey to Egypt. To Middle East people he looked like a new version of Alexander the Great.
    “Political Power comes from one book”. Mahomed
    “Political power comes from the barrel of a gun” Mao

    Napoleon knew and had done the latter, being an artillary man.
    After Egypt it became more necessary to hold territory. I don’t think there was a single book that summed up “Libertee, Egalitee,Fraternitee
    but Napoleon was keen to replace legal codes in countries that joined the French Empire.

    Actually it’s much more obnoxious. When such an attribution is made of a famous living person, valuable time is spent in denying an oft-repeated lie. In Armstrong’s case it even involved a government agency having to spend the taxpayers’ money to set the record straight (as above).

    In the case of Mormons honoring corpses with retroactive conversions, the actual person is not inconvenienced in any degree, only his memory which is a matter for his survivors and historians.

    My own curiosity caused me to research Armstong’s religious belief, if any:

    “In the late 1950s, Armstrong applied at a local Methodist church to lead a Boy Scout troop. When asked for his religious affiliation, he labeled himself as a Deist.”–Wikipedia

    Most categorizers of religious belief agree that Deists are as far from religion as one can get and still believe in a Creator. It is hard to imagine how a Deist could convert to any earth-based religion…but then the character Allâh is descended from a moon-god. So there’s that!

    Millions and Millions of people converted to Islam in the USA & France.

    -it is true.

    Taslima Nasreen is curse to the Muslims (till she says that she is a Muslim) -it is also true.

      How many People are in these countries? It is all your dream that everybody in USA & France become Muslims

    Mustafa Kamal

    Taslima writes some on personal life of writer Humayun after his death and now she writes about Neil-Armstrong after his death.

    So no one can inquiry directly from them…

    It is her another ugly-habit to write.

    Mustafa, there’s two letters above from U.S. departments clearly stating that Neil Armstrong was not a Muslim. Why would there be any need to inquire directly from him again if he were alive? Taslima is only pointing out the stupidity of those Muslims who grasp at straws to try an boost their own flagging belief. Perhaps that’s why you commented? Faith a bit shaky, need to lash out to confirm to yourself something….?

    All religions try that nonsense.
    So flaky and thin is the veneer of their ‘faith’ they have to make stories up to pacify themselves.

    It would seem they have very little self confidence in their own delusion…
    Seems to be why they think they must impose their will on the world and pretend it is the wish of their sky fairy.
    The scandal being all governments use this banal delusion to enable social control.

    Desperation makes fools and clowns of the most righteous.
    Only they are not particularly funny…just sad!

    Mustafa @ 5: “Millions and Millions of people converted to Islam in the USA & France.”

    Firstly, citation needed; I’m sure there are some converts in both those countries, but I’d be very surprised if they run into the millions;

    Secondly, even if you are right, the specific point of the article is that, however many American converts to Islam there may be, Neil Armstrong was not one of them – and you have not provided any evidence to the contrary.

    Mustafa Kamal said:

    “Millions and Millions of people converted to Islam in the USA & France.

    -it is true.”

    The most reliable figures for Muslim population in France and the USA are from the Pew Research Foundation, the British Broadcasting Corporation, Wikipedia, and the US government’s Department of the Census and Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Those figures are about 4.7 million Muslims in France and about 2.6 million in the USA, giving a total for both countries of about 7.3 million Muslims.

    The bare minimum number represented by Mustafa’s statement is 4 million, (“millions” being plural and meaning at least 2 million).

    In effect, Mustafa has said that of these 7.3 million Muslims, 54% are converts. This is astoundingly hard to believe…but then, I’m not a Muslim. If I were, I’m sure that I would believe anything another Muslim said because in the Qur’ân, Allâh says that Muslims are the very best of all people.

    Some people will believe anything if they hear it often enough or if it’s written down in some silly scripture and attributed to a non-existant being.

    Mustafa, do you know what a Deist is?

    My guess is that you do not as the only god you can imagine after years of brainwashing is a sadistic jerk and the only “truth” you know are ridiculous fairytales.

    people muslims and non muslims who cares i f neil armstrong was muslims he was not a saint or prophet so stop being concern about it i really want to know if it will make a bit difference in your life .

    Muslim, with the Quran as the Holly Book.
    In Quran you can find about forbidden to eat pig. But in special condition , the forbidden can be changed as okay
    Read in al Baqarah 173.
    So, by the directioning of the Quran, muslim make legalitation in every thing non legal. As far as to make the other religion convert to Moslem.

    This can be understand because his messenger mohammad saw told a hoax story about journey to jerusalem and to heaven. But moslem people still accept it as a true story.

    So never ever trust the person who hold the Quran as their way of life.
    Quran make women not equal to man.

      Men have their own responsibilities and women have their own as teached in quran as saying of quran can never be wrong..

      Its sayings and sayings of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) are proven by scientific reasearch you can see link (http://kaheel7.com/eng/index.php/secrets-of-quran-a-sunnah/132-seven-scientific-facts-testify-that-mohamed-is-sincere) or can search over it.

      Millions of non muslims are embrasing Islam all over the world my question is why? Muslims do not embrased their relegion why? Why Islam is the fastest growing relegion? Because its the true relegion and Muslims know it and those non-muslims also realize it and entered in islam for there own benefit.

      Non-muslims know islamic sayings benefit thats why they are trying to force Muslims Agaimst Islam as they don’t want their benefit…

      So instead of saying against islam without search please search over it and if u don’t found it true thent comment on it else thaught over it …… if u realize the truth its for your own betterment otherwise no one can force u…..

    Indeed, Neil Armstrong certifiably become a Muslim else he continue to have been a celebrity in his lifetime and would not have been on house arrest.
    Why would he be not visible all those years when his fellow Apollo 11 astronauts was in the limelight celebrating the first moon landing?

    Muslim is not practicing Al Islam as a religion because simply it is the way of life.
    Ad Din Al Islam is the foundation and fountain source of TRUTH.
    Religion per se is still the process of returning to The God to The Truth.
    Al Islam is Truth itself why then it be labeled and included with all others claiming truth when all others are still in the process of returning to the truth. RE LEGARE

  17. 17

    Muhammad is the Paraclete foretold. He is the Spirit of Truth referred to by Christ Jesus. Read the Al Qur-an the message Muhammad heard and spoken not of his own opinion.

  18. 18

    This is but accurate “While stressing his strong desire not to offend anyone or show disrespect for any religion, Armstrong has advised the Department of State that reports of his conversion to Islam are inaccurate. 3.”

    This is called manipulated truth

  19. 19
    Muhammad Jamil

    The reports of his conversion to Islam and of hearing
    the voice of Adzan on the moon and elsewhere are all untrue.

    Indeed, it is true for media mileage purposes.
    All those years Neil Armstrong is unheard in the media would point only to one thing – censorship
    Curiously WHY?
    The simple reply.
    Because he converted to Al Islam.
    That is why

    Muslim, with the Quran as the Holly Book.

    Wrong spelling . “Holly”

    In Quran you can find about forbidden to eat pig. But in special condition , the forbidden can be changed as okay

    If you are forced to preserved life. TRUE

    Read in al Baqarah 173.

    So, by the directioning of the Quran, muslim make legalitation in every thing non legal. As far as to make the other religion convert to Moslem.

    You seems to be Roman Citizens of old.

    This can be understand because his messenger mohammad saw told a hoax story about journey to jerusalem and to heaven. But moslem people still accept it as a true story.

    Yes,. to those Muslim who haven’t fathom yet and still believe it is called FAITH

    So never ever trust the person who hold the Quran as their way of life.
    Quran make women not equal to man.

    You must have read the fabricated books of juicy words of propagandist

    All religions try that nonsense.

    Yes, all religion is NONSENSE until it had finished the process of returning and had reached terminal.

    So flaky and thin is the veneer of their ‘faith’ they have to make stories up to pacify themselves.

    as all religions are.

    It would seem they have very little self confidence in their own delusion…

    as it may seems to you.

    Seems to be why they think they must impose their will on the world and pretend it is the wish of their sky fairy.

    it happened and done by so many nations and tribes except Abrahamic Covenanted Nation.

    The scandal being all governments use this banal delusion to enable social control.

    It is called GREED

    Desperation makes fools and clowns of the most righteous.

    Except Muhammad, the Servant, Jesus the Christ, Moses the Lawgiver, Abraham the Eternally Covenanted and Noah the Maker of the Ark

    Only they are not particularly funny…just sad!

    Don’t be sad, try to reflect because all are alike

    from the same mold from Adam the Man

    You and I and all else including Jesus the Christ are alike with navel.

    the only exception without navel is Adam himself, molded by The CREATOR OF ALL. WITHOUT EXCEPTION.
    THE UNCREATED CREATOR.

    Yes, all are Muslim except the God given gift of free will. You choose not to be a Muslim that free will.

    Free will itself is a Muslim.
