This is the article I wish I didn’t have to write. But such are the circumstances of the world that I feel compelled to believe it is absolutely necessary. There will be some who disagree with me. There will be some who may write me off as an idiot and never read anything I write again. There are some who won’t bother to understand what I’m really saying here and some who won’t like it. So be it. My integrity to myself is far more important than followers and readers.
Honest and personal evaluation is needed in this case. No other opinion will do.
I have asked many people many times to provide me with irrefutable proof that the Quran is a book of violence. I have received in return many arguments, none based on the actual text of the Quran. I have received links to several sites that supposedly exposed violent passages from the Quran. All of those supposed references were either terribly mistranslated when compared to the actual texts, cross referenced with eight different translations, or they were taken terribly out of context.
It needs to be understood that I am ONLY comparing ISIS to the Quran. My current study is very limited and very specific. I am not saying that Islam is a great religion or a bad one. I’m not comparing the Quran, except where absolutely necessary, to the Bible. That ISIS is a bunch of psychopathic and rabid animals who cannot share the dignity of being called human needs no further endorsement from me than an observation of their own actions of any who care to look at them.
For the sake of definitions of terms and axioms there are many definitions of what insanity is. There is one that stands in my mind as the quickest and most comprehensive index as to what is considered to be insane. Insanity is the ability to distinguish differences.
