“A woman can go to Heaven, as long as she’s accompanied by a male relative” claims Saudi Imam

This surprising declaration is in complete rupture with the country’s traditional hard line, which states that woman can never be admitted into Heaven, under any circumstances.

So this makes She‎ikh Salah Al-Budair relatively more liberal and progressive, I guess.

Of course, women can never do enough for their men:

“Women are sinners by nature and, therefore, cannot be admitted in Allah’s kingdom. Of course, they should still live a devout life to help their sons and husbands go to Heaven.”


Fatwa: Indonesian Muslim clerics reject vaccines as ‘unclean’

When do religious leaders get to make pronouncements on matters of science and health? Oh because they are ‘religious.’

Stupid is as stupid does. The sheep will blindly follow. Because religion. And their children, not the clerics, will be the ones paying the true price.

This will no doubt also impact the tourism industry. Who in their right mind would visit potentially infection- ridden locations when there are so many other safer options in the region.

Islamic scholars were once world-leading pioneers in astronomy and mathematics. Alas as Islam became more fundamental and anti-reality, this is no longer the case.

Why does humanity tend to default stupidity over time?

It would seem that only religious belief can make people do stupid shit and open themselves to being exploited.

How do you draw the line between constructive life-supporting beliefs and destructive brainwashing?

If there is a god who allows terrible things to be done in his name, why is he deserving of worship?

Religion of Peace is a Matter of Interpretation


We have all seen blatantly ironic pictures like this. Islam is both a religion of peace and of violence. Both those claims are concurrently true. Everything boils down to how particular believers interpret the holy books.

And therein lies the risk inherent in any religion. The gods we invent seem universally incapable of communicating clearly and precisely. It can be said that the beauty of religious texts comes from their ambiguous flowery language, full of subtle shades and rich nuance, and thus open to wildly divergent interpretations.

Or these gods are callously capricious and care not for the suffering, death, destruction their imprecise words cause.

Or, applying Occam’s Razor, these gods simply do not exist.

ISIS is ‘Systematically Beheading Children’

“They are systematically beheading children,” Arabo repeated slowly. “And mothers and fathers. The world hasn’t seen an evil like this for generations.”

“There’s actually a park in Mosul where they actually beheaded children and put their heads on a stick… this is crimes against humanity. They are doing the most horrendous, the most heart-breaking crimes that you can think of.”

Religion of peace. Yeah. I buy that. Not. What is it with fundamentalist muslims and beheadings?

The scary thing is, some “everyday” believers seem all too ready to buy into this barbarism. See this previous post.
