THE REAL EXPLANATIONS OF SOME POINTS?
Are these the real explanations for what happens in these cases?

THE REASON WHY ISLAM AND MUSLIMS BELIEVE THEIR MORAL CODE, LAW, ETC. IS HIGHLY MORAL?
####001 6/108d: “Thus have We (Allah*) made alluring to each people its own doings”.
Comment A6/92 (A6/93 in the 2008 English edition): “Lit., ‘thus godly have we made….', etc. implying that it is in the nature of man to regard the belief which have been implanted in him from babyhood, and which he now shares with his social environment, as the only true and possible ones – with the result that a polemic against those beliefs often tends to provoke a hostile psychological reaction.” This is said as an explanation why Islam sometimes meets a negative reaction. But the book skips the fact that this also goes for Muslims: If they are strongly indoctrinated, they may react strongly to arguments and facts they do not like – and without thinking over, or being mentally unable to think over – even true facts. This is likely to be the explanation for why most Muslims are able to be blind to all the mistakes and proofs for that things are very wrong in the Quran and thus with Muhammad and in Islam.
002 6/108e: “Thus have We (Allah*) made alluring to each people its own doings”. ######This sentence should be extremely thought-provoking also to Muslims. All the mistakes, etc., in the Quran proves 100% and more that the book is not from any god. And large parts of the religion and its moral code may - may - indicate that dark forces are involved (whereas all the wrong knowledge one believed was correct science in Arabia at that time + all the tales "borrowed" from Muhammad's surroundings strongly indicates that the Quran is made by one or more humans in Arabia at the time of Muhammad - with Muhammad as the prime suspect.)
Also see 8/48a below.
003 8/48a: "Remember Satan made their (sinful) acts seem alluring to them - - -". #####Irony: A number of acts accepted or advocated or even ordered in the Quran are from sinful to extremely sinful in all other of the large religions - and nearly all of the small ones - and also conflicting human rights and against all normal moral laws and rules. Not to mention the conflict with the very basis of all inter human moral: "Do onto others like you want others do onto you". The Quran is not made by any god, not to mention a good or benevolent god - too many errors, etc. and too horrible moral - or immoral - code. If the Quran is made by dark forces or even by one or more selfish humans, it is not strange if Satan has made the Muslims' sinful acts just and alluring to them. May thus Muslims be included here?
Different from what Islam tries to tell, the human conscience is a "carte blanche" when you are born. It has to be trained and educated. Islam and Muslims accepts and even promote - sometimes strongly promote - deeds which according to all normal moral codes and according to "do to others like you want others do to you", are from negative to strongly inhuman. #####Is it Iblis/Satan (+ permission to steal, rob and rape) who makes such acts seem alluring to Muslims?
Also see 6/108d and 6/108e above.
004 10/12c: "Thus does the deeds of the transgressors seem fair in their (non-Muslims'*) eyes". Comment to this in (YA1400): "Those without Faith (= non-Muslims*) are selfish - - - (and) - - - They do not see their own faults." Muslims "forget" that this also goes for them: This may also be the reason why Muslims - often very honestly - are unable to see f.x. the horrors in their war religion, or the immoral - often highly immoral - sides of their moral code, etc. They have so often been told that this and this is just and right and glorious, that it simply feels right for them. And when then Islam has no moral philosophy - thinking - they also never learn to think over such things over.
Also: Please read the Quran, and you will see the selfishness on behalf of the Muslims and even more on behalf of Muhammad MANY places - f.x. the permission to steal, rob, rape, take slaves "lawful and good", without the slightest bit of caring for the victims.
005 16/63d: "- - - but Satan made, (to the wicked), their own acts seem alluring - - -". But how could this happen, when the Quran so clearly states that Allah decides - even predestines and according to his unchangeable Plan - everything? Remember that free will for man is one of the things not possible even for an omnipotent god if there is full predestination - not even limited free will. (This is one more claim which is wrong in the Quran). See 14/22b above.
###006 16/63e: "- - - but Satan made, (to the wicked), their own acts seem alluring - - -". Compare the Quran's ethical and moral codes to "do unto others like you want others do unto you" and remember what is alluring to Muslims according to the Quran. Do you start thinking? (This question we found on Internet.)
THE REASON WHY MUSLIMS ARE ABLE TO OVERLOOK ALL THE FACTS TELLING THAT THINGS ARE VERY WRONG IN THE QURAN?
##007 23/1d: (A23/11): “- - - a Quranic allusion to the fact that people often reject a new ethical proposition on no better grounds than that it conflicts with their “inherited” habits of thoughts and ways of life. Indirectly, this allusion implies a condemnation of all blind "taqlid", i.e. an unthinking acceptance of religious doctrines or assertions which are not unequivocally supported by divine revelations, the explicit teachings of a prophet, or the evidence of the unprejudiced reason”.
- But the book skips the fact that this also goes for Muslims, especially needed as the Quran with all its errors is no revelation from any god: If they are strongly indoctrinated, they may react strongly to arguments and facts they do not like – and without thinking over or being mentally able to think over – even true facts.
- The book here has tailor-made a definition to fit Islam. It has forgotten (?) that for one thing that reason is unable to find the right answer without full and correct information – and the Quran is full of mistakes - that claims about divine revelations are 15 to the dozen in some religious circles, and invalid as proofs without documentation (something Muhammad and Allah were unable to produce) – and that the same goes for any self proclaimed prophet, and especially so if his teachings are very much wanting and he himself a questionable person (like the real Muhammad was). Not to mention "the evidence of the unprejudiced reason" - a meaningless expression in a culture where unprejudiced reason does not exist. This expression in reality in Islam is a claim for "belief on basis of blind belief". But definitions like this frequently are used in Islam and many Muslims really believe this is ok. logic - - - which makes straight thinking difficult for them.
- There is not one point in the Quran which is proved to be a divine revelation - lots of claims, but not one valid proof.
- All the wrong facts and other errors in the Quran prove that the book is not from any god - no divine revelation.
- As Muhammad also according to the Quran was unable to make prophesies = he was no prophet. Perhaps a messenger for someone or something or for himself, but no prophet.
- Reason - prejudiced or unprejudiced - never is a proof for anything. Reason can make conclusions, but ONLY on basis of facts or proofs - reason itself never is a fact or a proof. This is one of Islam's ways of disusing logic to try to construct "proofs" for Islam, and for the Quran's claimed reliability.
THE REASON WHY MINORITIES IN MUSLIM COUNTRIES ARE SUPPRESSED AND MISTREATED NOW AND THEN?
#####008 26/56: (A26/30): "Thus the Quran illustrates the psychological truth that, as a rule, a dominant nation is unable really to understand the desire for liberty on the part of the group or groups which it oppresses, and therefore attributes their rebelliousness to no more than unreasonable hatred and blind envy of the strong". Something to think over for Muslims who through the times suppressed and worse so many? And who have as an official goal in the Quran to conquer and suppress every country and every non-Muslim.
###########And one more and related point: Most Muslims are unable to understand why the religion/they are disliked and sometimes hated. They are unable to see that memories of a horrible history, added to a partly immoral moral code, an aggressive and suppressive ideology, glorification of oppression of all non-Muslims, and haughtiness, etc. are the real reasons. They are so used to their own ways of thinking and of their own moral code, etc. that they are unable to see that much of it far from are laudable, and honestly believe they are the best and with the best religion and best rules. Living that far from "do to others like you want others do to you", they are unable to see the reality, and believe that they are victims of unjust dislike and hate.
Read f.x. relevant pages on Internet, and see all the promises from Muslims that Islam will conquer and suppress "Italy and all Europe", etc., etc. Are there rational reasons for non-Muslims to react? - especially if they know there is a real possibility for this to come true, because of the inhuman war ideology behind Islam? - and even more so if they know enough about Islam to know that the Quran with all its errors is not from any god, and the religion thus a made up pagan one, under which they risk becoming slaves?
THE REASON WHY MUSLIMS BELIEVE IN THE QURAN NO MATTER HOW MANY ERRORS, ETC. THEY HAVE TO "EXPLAIN" AWAY? (THERE ARE HUNDREDS AND MANY MORE).
#009 5/104e: "They (non-Muslims*) say: 'Enough for us (non-Muslims*) are the ways we found our fathers following'". One more of the many texts or quotes in the Quran which could not have been reliably written into the claimed "Mother Book" (13/39b, 43/4b+c, 85/21-22) in Heaven (of which the Quran is claimed to be a copy) eons ago, unless predestination was and is 100% like the Quran claims many places (if you look, you will find more cases than we mention - we only mention some of the obvious ones). If man has free will - even partly only (an expression some Muslims use to flee from the problem of full predestination contra free will for man (and also contra that there is no meaning in praying to Allah for help, if everything already is predestined in accordance with a plan "nobody and nothing can change" - a problem which Muslims seldom mention), and an expression no Muslim we have met has ever defined) - and can change his mind, full and reliable clairvoyance about the future, not to mention the distant future, is impossible even for a god, as the man always could/can change his mind or his words once more, in spite of Islam's claims. There are at least 3 reasons - 2 of them unavoidable - for this:
- When something is changed, automatically the future is changed.
- The laws of chaos will be at work and change things, if even a tiny part is made different.
- The so-called "Butterfly Effect"; "a butterfly flapping its wing in Brazil may cause a storm in China later on" or "a small bump may overturn a big load".
This that Allah predestines everything like the Quran claims and states many places, is an essential point, because besides totally removing the free will of man (in spite of the Quran's claims of such free will, or some Muslims' adjusted "partly free will for man" - to adjust the meanings where the texts in the Quran are wrong, is typical for Islam and its Muslims) - it also removes the moral behind Allah's punishing (and rewarding) persons for what they say and do - Allah cannot reward or punish people for things he himself has forced them to say or do, and still expect to be believed when he (Muhammad?) claims to be a good or benevolent or moral or just god. Also see 2/51b and 3/24a above.
But remember as for punishments and rewards - and forgiving: They cannot be given unless there are made changes in the Plan of Allah, which several verses in the Quran states nobody and nothing can make. (A predestined reward is not a reward, but theater.)
And as mentioned above, full predestination also makes prayers to Allah meaningless, as everything already is predestined according to Allah's Plan - a Plan which no prayer ("nobody and nothing") can change.
And not to be forgotten: "Enough for us are the ways we found our fathers following", are just the words of the majority of the Muslims. Taqlid.
###010 5/104f: "Enough for us (non-Muslims*) are the ways we found our fathers following". = We non-Muslims prefer to follow the religion of our fathers. A way of thinking which Muhammad found much wanting - - - but which is just what most Muslims of all times have been and are doing; our parents and our surroundings told this religion was the true one and worthy of blind and unthinking belief, and then we follow their beliefs - as they and others say so, it must be the truth.
###011 26/74c: “They (Abraham's people*) said: ‘Nay, but we found our fathers doing thus (what we do)”.
(A26/38): “(Zamakhshari): ‘- - - ancient usage and precedence in time are no proof of (a concept’s) soundness”. Razi, for his part, states that (this*) verse represents ‘one of the strongest (Quranic) indications of the immorality (Arab “fasad”*) inherent in (the principle of) "taqlid", i.e. the blind, unquestioning adoption of religious concepts or practices on basis of one’s uncritical faith in no more than the “authority” of a scholar or a religious leader.”
But the book skips the fact that this also goes for Muslims: If they are strongly indoctrinated, they may react strongly to arguments and facts they do not like – and without thinking over – or being mentally able to think over – even true facts. And also for them it is highly immoral just to accept a religion or something just because their fathers and others believe in it.
But there hardly is a major religion more authoritative and with a clearer demand for blind belief than Islam. Or with stronger and more ruthless indoctrination.
Also see 6/108d and 23/1d above.
012 31/21e: "'Nay, we non-Muslims*) shall follow the ways that we found our fathers (following)' What! Even if it is Satan beckoning them to the Penalty of the (Blazing) Fire?" But this is just what Muslims are doing - blindly and without real questions following the old beliefs.
"- - - it is in the nature of man to regard the beliefs which have been implanted in him from childhood, and which he now shares with his social environment, as the only true and possible ones" - which explains in details why Muslims believe in spite of all facts proving something is seriously wrong with the religion.
(Also see 6/108b): “Thus have We (Allah*) made alluring to each people its own doings”. ***Comment A6/92 (A6/93 in the 2008 English edition): “Lit., ‘thus godly have we made….”, etc. implying that it is in the nature of man to regard the belief which have been implanted in him from childhood, and which he now shares with his social environment, as the only true and possible ones – with the result that a polemic against those beliefs often tends to provoke a hostile psychological reaction.” This is said as an explanation why Islam sometimes meets a negative reaction. But the book skips the fact that this also goes for Muslims: If they are strongly indoctrinated, they may react strongly to arguments and facts they do not like – and without thinking over, or being mentally able to think over – even to true facts.
To repeat it:But this is just what Muslims are doing - blindly and without real questions following the old beliefs. When our father tells us that the Quran is the truth, this must be correct, because so his grandfather told him!
###013 37/69-70: “Truly they found their fathers on the wrong path; so they (too) were rushed down their footsteps”.
Comment A37/25 (A37/27 in 2008 English edition): “I.e. blind imitation ("taqlid") of the – obviously absurd – beliefs, valuations and customs (f.x. parts of the Muslim “moral” code*) of one’s erring predecessors, and disregard of all evidence (!!!*) of the truth supplied by both reason and divine (?*) revelation, is here shown to be the principal cause of the suffering referred to - - -. (Zamakhshari)”.
No comments necessary – this also fits Muslims 100%, not to say 120%.
###014 43/22c: "We (non-Muslims*) found our fathers following a certain religion, and we do guide ourselves by their footsteps". This also is the reason for why most Muslims believe in Islam: Their parents and others have made them believe it is the truth - no real proof has been given them (because such proofs simply have never existed). And few if any Muslim have ever checked if what their fathers believed, could be true.
015 11/62c: "Dost thou (now) forbid us (the Thamuds*) the worship of what our fathers worshipped?" Sentences like this might make one start thinking, when one knows that Muslims believe because their fathers and their and their mullahs/imams and teachers and surroundings tells this is the true belief because their fathers etc. have told them it was true, and because there is a strong social pressure never to question such claims - in one Arab word: Because of "taqlid". Muslims hardly ever go into the material with the question "where is the truth?"
############016 11/87c: "- - - the worship which our fathers practiced - - -". The reason why Muslims believe in Islam is that their fathers and surroundings claim it is the truth, not that they ever have gone into the material to see if it at all is possible that it can be the truth. (Which it is not with all those mistakes, etc. in the Quran).
THE REASON WHY MUSLIMS REACT LIKE THEY DO TO FACTS THEY DISLIKE?
017 37/97a: YA 4093: "The argument - - - was so sound that it could not be met by argument. In such cases Evil resorts to violence, or secret plotting." IS THIS THE REASON WHY MUHAMMAD DID AND ISLAM/MUSLIMS SO EASILY AND SO OFTEN RESORTS TO SECRET PLOTTING AND VIOLENCE?
