The Peacock Problem: Response

This is a response to this blog post. Women are clearly presented as sexual objects in our society.  I’ve tried to help my son to see through it, and my wife would very much like to do some kind of travelling school lesson for boys on the subject. Boys of this age are moving into a new social arena.  They are starting to see the sexual side of their existence, trying to make themselves attractive to the opposite gender without […]

Could Muhammad have split the moon in two?

Context You may know that I once met some Muslim proselytisers and have since stayed in touch with one of them.  We occasionally chat via email and I really enjoy or correspondences.  He doesn’t try to convince me Islam is true, he tries to understand why I do not think that it is.  I greatly appreciate and enjoy his approach. He recently wrote and asked what I thought of the miracle claim that Muhammad performed a miracle and split the […]

Questions Muslim proselytisers won’t answer

It seems there are some questions that are too difficult for certain people to answer. The first one is with regards to Hamza Tzortzis and his views on sex with 9 year old brides.  Having sat in front of an audience and told them that under the right circumstances it is okay for an adult male to have sex with his 9 year old bride he now seems very coy about discussing the issue.  The only brief correspondence we had […]

Islam, and sex with 9 year old brides

In this post I intend to provide some references as to why Muslims, such as Hamza Tzortzis, condone sexual intercourse with females as young as 9 years old.  Before providing those references I would like to point out a few things. As far as I am aware, Muslims must operate within the laws of their hosting country as long as they do not force them to break Islamic laws.  This would mean that no Imam in the UK should perform […]

iERA finally renounce Quran scientific miracles

iERA sent a small delegation of proselytisers to the world atheist convention in Dublin 2011.  During this event claims were made for information in the Quran which pre-dated modern scientific discovery, including mountains stablising the Earth’s crust via isostasy and microscopic level knowledge of the embryonic stages of human development. Since then there has been a change in position.  In this article Hamza (chief researcher for iERA) states that he has since changed his position completely and no longer holds this view.  The […]

Why the word Islamophobia should not be used

Quite frankly I am sick of the word “Islamophobia”.  The reason is that it is completely the wrong term.  Burning down mosques, pulling off hijabs and indecent graffiti are not forms of Islamophobia but anti-Muslim.  It seems that users of the word “Islamophobia” think that an irrational fear is when you are able to put the words “irrational” and “fear” into a single sentence about a specific subject, but this is simply not the case. An irrational fear (or phobia) […]

Shooting stars, Jinns, and the Quran – Happy Ramadan!

I’m waiting for a system update to complete, so seeing as I have some free time and it is the start of Ramadan I thought I’d write down something that I originally planned for a video but now find I don’t have the time to create. Perseids The Perseids /ˈpɜrsiːɨdz/ are a prolific meteor shower associated with the comet Swift-Tuttle. The Perseids are so-called because the point from which they appear to come, called the radiant, lies in the constellation Perseus. The name derives in part from the word Perseides (Περσείδες), a […]

Does the Quran permit sex with slaves?

After a short exchange with a guy named “Tanvir Chowdhury” on Twitter Tanvir wrote a detailed response as to why he thinks sex with slaves is not endorsed by the Quran.  I shall quote Tanvir’s response and intersperse my comments. Does #Islam permit a #Muslim man to have sex with his slaves in addition to his legal wives? Those arguing it does, frequently cite the #Quran, verses 23:5-6 as support for their position. These verses as translated by Yusuf Ali reads:“Who abstain from sex,Except with […]

Whosoever kills a human being – Rupert Murdoch’s Quran rant on Twitter

Rupert Murdoch has recently upset many people by having a rant about the Quran on Twitter.  He discusses a verse in the Quran commonly cited by Muslim apologists such as Mehdi Hassan, Ajmal Masroor, and even President Obama to show how peaceful the Quran is.  This verse is never given in its entirety and that is why I think it’s a good thing Murdoch has brought attention to it.  The narrative will go something like this The Quran says “whosoever kills a […]

Read more – An open letter

Here is a copy of an email I just sent to – I have emailed them in the past so they are aware of my ThisIsTheTruthUncut project.  I was surprised (kind of) to see that they kept the “scientific miracles of the Quran” section of their book after having a new print run off. Bill Hay has a book out in which he describes how he was tricked into saying what he said and how he was then […]
