You may wish it was a Poe

But it isn't.

Quote# 64610

In an interview with the BBC, the group's leader, Mohammed Yusuf, said such education "spoils the belief in one god".

"There are prominent Islamic preachers who have seen and understood that the present Western-style education is mixed with issues that run contrary to our beliefs in Islam," he said.

"Like rain. We believe it is a creation of god rather than an evaporation caused by the sun that condenses and becomes rain.

"Like saying the world is a sphere. If it runs contrary to the teachings of Allah, we reject it. We also reject the theory of Darwinism."

I suspect Mohammed Yusuf might just be the biggest Poe in the universe.



At least, I HOPE so. :-O

That, gentlemen, is the legacy of Ibn Ghazali who effectively destroyed the Islamic Civilisation.

Well, that's one scary way of looking at life.

P. S. How can you be absolutely certain that Quran is the word of God? Btw, because it says so in the book and priests confirm it DO NOT count.

Hah, their fundies are more moronic than ours! At least the Western ones pretend to accept science most of the time.

Mohammed Yusuf is a Nigerian Islamist militant, so if a poe, then he's taking the joke perhaps a wee bit too far.

"In an interview with the BBC, the group's leader, Mohammed Yusuf, said such education "spoils the belief in one god"."

Isn't that a bitch? Have fun wallowing in your ignorance then.

""There are prominent Islamic preachers who have seen and understood that the present Western-style education is mixed with issues that run contrary to our beliefs in Islam," he said."

Then maybe, just maybe, your beliefs need reevaluating.

""Like rain. We believe it is a creation of god rather than an evaporation caused by the sun that condenses and becomes rain."

Good god. Are you fucking serious?

""Like saying the world is a sphere. If it runs contrary to the teachings of Allah, we reject it."

You can't tell me that you've never, even in your ignorant little backwater hell-hole, not once in your entire life seen a satellite image of the Earth.

So, mister "my ancient superstitions trump modern science and my own fucking eyes," how do you explain a fucking sphere where your flat disc should be?

"We also reject the theory of Darwinism."

Me too. Modern evolutionary theory is much better.

And to think Muslims were once great pioneers in education, particularly science.

Oh good lord...he's serious, too, isn't he?

So he really admits believing that the world is a disc and rain comes from god (and not from the hydrologic cycle)?
I hope for him that he is just joking, as even christian fundamentalists sound more sane than this person

;)

The moment I read this article I rushed over here to submit it (then found I'd been beaten to it). This would have been a 5 in the old days.

Tough titty. Facts are facts, fairy stories will remain fairy stories.

'"Like rain. We believe it is a creation of god rather than an evaporation caused by the sun that condenses and becomes rain.

"Like saying the world is a sphere. If it runs contrary to the teachings of Allah, we reject it. We also reject the theory of Darwinism."'

Ah, wilful ignorance and fundyism - like peas in a pod.

I wonder how he's enjoying the first week of his eternity in hell?

Yupp, still says 2009, I could have understood the comment if it had said 909 and not 2009 but holy fuck, how dumb can you be?

Fundiesm comes in all kinds of flavors. Of course all those flavors taste like shit.

This is why Poe's Law works. No matter how fucking batshit insane something is, there is someone out there who actually believes it.

it's Gengis Khan's fault. He dismantled Baghdad's centers of learning and knowledge, but let 'em keep their Islamic faith intact.

EDIT: Kind of like what a certain 21st Century "American Gengis Khan" did a few years back....

Ahem.....if you can see photos which prove that the earth is, in fact, a sphere, doesn't that make a bell go off in your head somewhere to tell you that your book might not actually be the word of Allah?

Change Mohammed Yusuf to Pat Robertson, Islam to Christianity, and Allah to God, and it would still make as much sense.

Of course, you know that NASA faked all those photos showing that the earth is a sphere. Just like they faked the moon landing and are hiding the fact that there are giant holes at the north & south poles. I know it's true because I read it on the internet.

I'd tell you to remember that you live in reality, but your dead. So I guess there wouldnt be much point.
