    Qur'an is a better Romanization of the word from Arabic. I'm guessing this will be a theme throughout the new translation.

        Islam is the opposite though. Nietzsche himself said so. He admired Islam. Ofcourse Schopenhauer saw through all its bullshit.

          I don't consider any thinker to be gospel. Maybe we've seen more of what Islam is today, than people did then.
          It's absolutely slave morality, if Christianity is then how couldn't Islam be? And the evidence is there in the history of Mohammad.
          It's an updated form, targeted towards a different population. Remember these religions are social engineering technology.

          Nietzsche very clearly knew nothing about Islam, just like a lot of 19 th century thinkers. If only they had known back then, would've saved us a lot of lives

    I kind of liked Islam until I discovered Muslims had to be circumcised. That's israeli BS. It's funny how one detail can change your entire perception.

      Yeah, like looking at ai art and thinking it seemed fine, but you spot the wonky fingers and then notice all the other problems

      like how some I think German academic was examining the songs of the koran and realised if you just changed the diacrits a little so that they made sense someone had literally just taken a load of christian hymns.
      I think he had to go into hiding after that. Also the way zamzam water apparently comes out of this magical desert spring that somehow supplies the needs of millions of pilgrims every year, but ignores all the piping going into it from the giant desalination plant for the local city.

          Christoph Luxenberg (Not his real name as he's a butthurt Lebanese christian)
          It all falls apart once you realise he uses modern arabic (Levantine, hence the obvious Lebanese link). He also can't speak aramaic and gets it wrong all the time. His book is worthless. Hagarism was a much more fun and interesting exploration of the same themes. Luxenerd would render the qur'an as a garbled mess of half arabic, half aramaic which would be totally unreadable.

            Not at all well, iirc, Crone disavaowed her book later. We found a bunch of very early manuscripts of the Qur'an which remove lots of the mystery of early islam. Its still worth a read as its quite an interesting book

      It’s hygienic, same reason Muslims have to shave their armpits and pubes. No foreskin means no smegma, ancient Egyptians did it too. Helpful in the desert

          You'd think if their god was up to snuff, he'd at least mention to cook the meat properly. I know thermodynamics and microbiology are complex topics, but it wouldn't have killed the guy to add "cook all the way through or you'll get worms" to his scriptures.

            the problem is that 1. you could sell human meat as pork and people wouldn't notice (in the Philippines it's called "long pig") 2. you can feed anything to pigs, for example human cadavers
            while in Europe such practices would be frowned upon and people lynched, and in Asia they are more or less considered "natural", the Middle East took the path that lies between these two extremes: write in the book that pig is banned altogether... and no more multi-day debates whether we should lynch Ismail who fed us his mother-in-law or not!!

        Mutilation is anti-natural, therefore, degenerate. It's an insult against God's creation.

      There is nothing in the Quran that tells you to cut off your foreskin. It's tradition based on hearsay. Unlike what a lot of people seem to believe, I don't think that "following the prophet" is supposed to mean that you ought to copy his bodily movements, e.g. to eat dates the way he did. (Unfortunately there are far more ridiculous things in tradition...) Stick to the word of God *only* (if you believe that it is His word) and you'll be fine.

    "Koran" is for normal people
    "Qu'ran" is for champagne communists who put pronouns in their profiles, or neurotic Muslims that tomorrow may decide that "Qrrh4han'''trr_rr" is the only correct transliteration (with an accent on "trans" as in "troony") and if you disagree you hate muslims and want to kill them

      “Q” is generally used to represent an Arabic letter that doesn’t exist in English. ق. K in Arabic is ك. That said, the best English translation is the Koran Interpreted, by Arberry

        yet Ko is closer to ق than Qyu..
        I got the Dawood one because it's in prose and not verse... also the Arberry one doesn't have an epub version..
