This is an open post where you can throw up any Islam or religion related links you think are worth checking out.

Some quick ground rules:

  • I will not be moderating the links very often, so I cannot vouch for their validity. Click at your own risk.
  • Please don’t copy & paste the entire article into a comment here. It clutters things up.
  • Please don’t post 10 comments in a row, as it’s sure to land you in my spam box, sandwiched in between the dummies who are trying to convert me back to Islam and the morons who think I’m an undercover Jew.
  • If I think a link is inappropriate (ie proselytizing), I will delete it.

That’s all.  Post away!

  1. One of my favorite websites is the Skeptics Annotated Bible. It also has a section on the Quran and the Book of Mormon. It has lots of great cross referencing on many topics like inconsistencies, homophobia, and bigotry toward women among other things.

  12. The faithful believe in miracles, right? Well how come god never sees fit to perform a miracle and grow a new arm or leg for an amputee? Well, this site explains it:

    Argues that the gospels were made up in a self-consciously allegorical style, are obviously plagiarized from contemporary mis-translated Jewish scripture, and there is no valid evidence at all for a historical Jesus.

    Either that or Marilyn Manson.
    I’ll put it on youtube if i ever do and put the links for u.

  19. I might as well throw in my own plug:

    Iron Chariots, the counter-apologetics wiki

    This has been a pretty successful project so far, but we are conspicuously lacking very much in the way of articles about Islam or the Koran. So if you’re so inclined, have at it!


    July 24, 2008 at 5:21 pm

  20. Hi, kafirgirl. It seems to me like our ambitious projects share a similar motivation, though a markedly different approach:


    This is my ongoing project to illustrate the entire Bible in LEGO. It’s tagline could well read: “Illustrating the Bible so you don’t have to actually read it–since you weren’t going to anyhow.”

    I was raised to be a Christian, but stopped believing around age 13. Ironically, being the only atheist I knew caused me to become fascinated by religion, and in a similar parallel to yourself, I was drawn to study philosophy of religion and the history of ancient Christianity and Judaism in college. It was then that I read the Bible through for myself and was shocked at every turn. It became crystal clear to me that very, very few people ever read the Bible, and that most people are entirely unaware of what makes up the bulk of its content. This despite the fact that millions and millions of Christians would claim it as the source of their deepest held beliefs and the ultimate moral guide.

    By the time I created The Brick Testament, there were already many websites directly criticizing the absurdities, contradictions, and supposed exemplary morality of the Bible. Though I don’t disvalue such sites at all, they often struck me as mainly “preaching to the choir”. I wanted to make something that would be genuinely enjoyable and useful to religious and non-religious folks alike. Generally I tend to think the Bible does a fine job deconverting modern, reasonable people on its own–it’s just that nobody reads it.

    Anyhow, I’m enjoying the proverbial bajeezus out of your straight-talk commentary on the Quran. And if you or your readers get even a smidgen of that same pleasure from viewing my website, then in the words of the prophet Mohammad, peace be upon him: “awesome”.

    Best regards,

    -The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith

  21. Hi The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith! I am a huge, huge, huuuuge fan of your site. And I’m honestly a little embarrassed that I didn’t remember to add a link leading there (adding it right now). I can’t recommend it highly enough. I’m glad you’re enjoying the blog so far, and thanks so much for the encouragement. You rock.

    Sources of Quran by W. St. Clair-Tisdall.

    A valuable book showing the sources from which Allah(oops Muhammad) got his fairytales from.

  23. Moses another fiction like Jesus?

    The birth story of Moses is suspiciously similar to that of the birth of Sargon, an Akkadian monarch from the 3rd millennium BCE.


    July 25, 2008 at 10:43 am

  24. The image of Sargon as a castaway set adrift on a river resembles the better-known birth narrative of Moses. Scholars such as Joseph Campbell and Otto Rank have compared the 7th century BC Sargon account with the obscure births of other heroic figures from history and mythology, including Karna, Oedipus, Paris, Telephus, Semiramis, Perseus, Romulus, Gilgamesh, Cyrus, Jesus, and others.[15]



    July 25, 2008 at 10:50 am

  25. Rev.,

    I’ve seen other web sites link to specific passages on your site. I have also seen comments in other blogs to the effect that everyone seemed to be puzzled about whether your site was serious or a mockery of the bible. Thanks for providing the background on your motives. It’ll help me appreciate what you’ve created even more.

  31. You probably already know this, but I didn’t find the link here, so…
    The “Skeptics’ Annotated Bible / Quran / Book of Mormon” text was donated to the Reason Project, and volunteers are currently converting it to a wiki format. This way, registered users are able to write further annotations.

    The Quran can be found here:

    (There are only a few chapters of the Quran converted, I think they’re working on the Bible or the BoM).

  34. See the views of atheist Jabali in Valmiki Ramayan:
    “The father is only the seed of a being. The sperm(shuklam) and the ovum(rudhiram) blend(samyuktam) at the right time in the mother’s womb, so that a human being is born in this world.”

    “Perform sacrifices, distribute gifts, consecrate yourselves, practise ansterity and renunciation’ – These writings are composed by learned men for the sake of inducing others to give.”

    [Valmiki Ramayan 2:108-11;15]


    Was Valmiki Ramayana written to “refute” these atheists?
    So, it seems from the supernatural births of Rama, Sita and Hanuman.

    The Ramayana refers to Vanaras(monkeys who cud speak like humans etc). So was this taken by Valmiki from atheistic thinkers who theorised evolution and mythologised?

    Great site!

    Just letting you know of these very informative sites on Islam and jihad:

    All the best.

    A pretty funny prank call recording. A jewish girl tells her parents she’s dating an italian guy. Drama ensues.

  37. This is from another post. I didn’t want it to get buried in there, so I’m reposting it here. (Thanks, incunabulum!)

    There was a great story today on WYPR (local NPR affiliate) in Baltimore about Muslim women in America. If you get a chance, please give it a listen:
    [audio src="http://stream.publicbroadcasting.net/production/mp3/wypr/local-wypr-740718.mp3" /]

    At first, it sounds like it is just a story about a homeless shelter. Then you realize it is about black Muslim men in America using their religion to have sex with whomever they want while not actually providing for them.

  42. Great article from The Independent by Johann Hari, posted on richarddawkins.net, “We need to stop being cowards about Islam”:

    Great quote:

    “The story of Aisha also prompts another fundamentalist-busting discussion. You cannot say that Mohamed’s decision to marry a young girl has to be judged by the standards of his time, and then demand that we follow his moral standards to the letter. Either we should follow his example literally, or we should critically evaluate it and choose for ourselves. Discussing this contradiction inevitably injects doubt – the mortal enemy of fanaticism (on The Independent’s Open House blog later today, I’ll be discussing how Aisha has become the central issue in a debate in Yemen about children and forced marriage). “


    August 14, 2008 at 1:27 pm

  43. “It is condescending to treat Muslims like excitable children who cannot cope with the probing, mocking treatment we hand out to Christianity, Judaism and Buddhism.”

    Muslims are the best of people who forbid what is wrong(e.g.eating pork) and permit what is right(e.g.killing kafirs/beating wife, polygamy etc).

    See this myth evaporate in Beijing Olympics. Pork-eaters winning far more Golds than non-Pork-eaters.
    What is more-Atheistic China beating Jesus’s West and USA, Allah’s 57 Islamic Countries and Ram’s India.


    August 18, 2008 at 9:45 am

  46. Anand, I should add that not all Muslims permit things like killing infidels, beating women and polygamy. There are plenty of moderate and liberal Muslims out there who have no idea that this kind of shit is in the book. And I’m willing to bet a lot of them would be mortified if they actually read it for themselves.


    August 18, 2008 at 10:23 am

  47. ^^^^^
    True.They wudnt commit or permit those horrible things.But these people try to “defend” by giving excuses such as “wrong translation”, “u must learn Arabic”……….But i appreciate their high sense of morality that they seek to “defend” these things in this way.

  52. Watercat posted this on A4Atheist’s blog (http://a4atheist.wordpress.com). I think it’s well worth posting here.

    A while back, I read each of the main scriptures for as far as they made sense. (not very far) I just posted the bible segment here. Maybe you’ll like my take on it ;=)

  53. “The trial of eight men accused of planning to bomb transatlantic airliners with home-made liquid explosives has heard that some of the men recorded “martyrdom videos”.”

    See the videos for yourself:


    “Anyone who tries to deny this, then read the Koran and you will not be able to deny this because this is the words in the Koran and the words of our the messenger of Allah, prayers and peace upon him, who said them and we will not leave this path until you leave our lands, until you feel what we are feeling.

    Canadian guilty in terror trial
    A Canadian man has been found guilty of participating in a terrorist group that allegedly planned to storm parliament and behead the prime minister.

    Wow, somehow I knew the guy was a Muslim before I even clicked on the fucking link.


    September 25, 2008 at 12:45 pm

  56. For some reason, that Canadian guy reminds me of Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, the valedictorian of the Islamic Saudi Academy (in VA, near DC — and their school bus passes in front of my house), who is now in jail for plotting to kill President Bush.

    Jihadi terrorism is not created by lack of education or social impoverishment.

    I saw this documentary a couple of days ago:
    I’d heard of the abuse of child “witches” before, but htis really brought home the extent of the problem. If anybody asks what the harm of religion and supersition is, well that’s it right there!

  62. The Evolution of Religion: Is religion a psychological hiccup?

    R. Elisabeth Cornwell, PhD and J. Anderson Thomson, MD, who work alongside Richard Dawkins in support of his Foundation For Reason & Science, share their thoughts on the possible roots of religion from a evolutionary perspective….

    They hypothesize that religion is merely a psychological hiccup in our development and consider it the ultimate Big Mac as far as our primal brains are concerned.

    SuicideGirls would like to thank Richard Dawkins for facilitating this very special article.
