    Since the author — Thomas Jacob — has not elaborated on the historic (pre-Islamic) Pagan origin of Ka’ba in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, below I write for my readers a quote from my readings.

    I also post for my readers about the pre-Judaic Pagan origin of the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem in the following LINKS.

    Indian historian Sita Ram Goel wrote:

    ‘Muslim historians tell us on the authority of the Islam’s Prophet that idolaters of Arabia had set up idols in places which were meant to be mosques when they were established for the first time by Abraham.

    The mosque of Ka’ba, we are told, had been built by Abraham at the very centre of the earth.

    Those who dismiss Rama as mythological gossip and deny him a place of birth at Ayodhya, India, may well enquire whether Abraham was a historical person who actually presided over the building of the Ka’ba!

    It is, however, recorded history that the armies of Islam did everywhere what had been done in Arabia, as they advanced into Iran, Khorasan, Transoxiana, Seistan, Afghanistan, and India.

    Hundreds of thousands of Fire Temples of the Zoroastrians, Buddhist monasteries, and “Hindu” temples disappeared or yielded place to mosques, ziarats, and dargahs. Modern archaeology, has reconstructed what happened along the trail of Islamic invasion of all these ancient lands.

    When Islam’s founder Muhammad entered the Ka’ba after his conquest of Mecca by overwhelming force, he declared, “Truth has come and falsehood has vanished.”

    Some years ago I read an article proposing that the Ka’ba was a Shiva Temple before it was converted into a mosque by Islam’s Prophet Muhammad.

    The article cited a long hymn in Arabic addressed to Mahãdeva who, according to the article, was the presiding deity of the Ka’ba.

    The hymn, it was stated, had been composed in the reign of Vikramãditya of Ujjain in the first century B.C.

    A friend who got interested tried to get the hymn traced to the extant collection of pre-Islamic Arab poetry!

    He approached several libraries abroad, but drew a blank.

    He as well as I then DISMISSED the proposition as the product of that school of “Hindu” historians according to whom every building everywhere in the world was a Hindu monument at one time!

    But in the course of the present study I have run into some facts which force me to revise my judgment.

    I am not yet prepared to say that the Ka’ba was a Shiva temple.

    I, however, cannot resist the conclusion that it was a hallowed place of “Hindu” pilgrimage.

    The facts are being placed before the readers for whatever worth they possess.’

    Thanks, I have filed the beautiful versus of Sanatana Dharma. There is a difference between proselyting and Evangelising. Proselyting is asking to convert or attempting to convert someone with allurement; whereas evangelising is preaching. Anyone can accept it or reject it. All democracies allow evangelising and propagate faith. Especially so with Faith Freedom.

  3. Face_The_Truth says:

    Only in Sanãtana Dharma I find the following sentences as no other religious path on earth — to our knowledge — has ever said anything similar the followings:

    ॐ असतो मा सद्गमय ।
    तमसो मा ज्योतिर्गमय ।
    मृत्योर्मा अमृतं गमय ।
    आविराविर्म एधि ।
    ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥

    Meaning:
    Lead us from the unreal to the real
    Lead us from darkness to light
    Lead us from death to immortality!
    Let the Knowledge of the Self-Manifest Atman Grow in Me
    Om! Peace! Peace! Peace!

    ॐ पूर्णमदः पूर्णमिदं पूर्णात्पुर्णमुदच्यते
    पूर्णश्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवावशिष्यते ॥
    ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥

    Meaning:
    Om! That is infinite, and this (universe) is infinite.
    The infinite proceeds from the infinite.
    (Then) taking the infinitude of the infinite (universe),
    It remains as the infinite alone.
    Om! Peace! Peace! Peace!

    ॐ सर्वेशां स्वस्तिर्भवतु ।
    सर्वेशां शान्तिर्भवतु ।
    सर्वेशां पुर्णंभवतु ।
    सर्वेशां मङ्गलंभवतु ।
    ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥

    Meaning:
    May there be Well-Being in All,
    May there be Peace in All,
    May there be Fulfilment in All,
    May there be Auspiciousness in All,
    Om! Peace! Peace! Peace!

    ॐ सर्वे भवन्तु सुखिनः
    सर्वे सन्तु निरामयाः ।
    सर्वे भद्राणि पश्यन्तु
    मा कश्चिद्दुःखभाग्भवेत् ।
    ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥

    Meaning:
    Om, May All become Happy,
    May All be Free from Illness.
    May All See what is Auspicious,
    May no one Suffer!
    Om! Peace! Peace! Peace!

    ॐ वाङ् मे मनसि प्रतिष्ठिता ।
    मनो मे वाचि प्रतिष्ठितम् ।
    आविराविर्म एधि ।
    वेदस्य म आणीस्थः ।
    श्रुतं मे मा प्रहासीः
    अनेनाधीतेनाहोरात्रान्सन्दधामि ।
    ऋतं वदिष्यामि ।
    सत्यं वदिष्यामि ।
    तन्मामवतु ।
    तद्वक्तारमवतु ।
    अवतु माम् ।
    अवतु वक्तारामवतु वक्तारम् ॥
    ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥

    Meaning:
    Om, Let My Speech be Established in My Mind,
    Let My Mind be Established in My Speech,
    Let the Knowledge of the Self-Manifest Atman Grow in Me,
    Let My Mind and Speech be the Support to Experience the Knowledge of the Vedas,
    Let what is Heard by Me (from the Vedas) be Not a mere Appearance …
    but what is Gained by Studying Day and Night be Retained.
    I Speak about the Divine Truth,
    I Speak about the Absolute Truth,
    May That Protect Me,
    May That Protect the Preceptor,
    May that Protect Me,
    May that Protect the Preceptor, May that Protect the Preceptor,
    Om! Peace! Peace! Peace!

    सर्वं शान्तिः शान्तिरेव शान्तिः सा मा शान्तिरेधि ॥
    ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥

    Meaning:
    May peace radiate there in the whole sky as well as in the vast ethereal space everywhere.
    May peace reign all over this earth, in water and in all herbs, trees and creepers.
    May peace flow over the whole universe.
    May peace be in the Supreme Being Brahman.
    And may there always exist in all peace and peace alone.
    Om! Peace! Peace! Peace to us and all beings!

  4. That we will see. We have seen comments from some readers maligning Hindu religion and Hindus based on propaganda and lies, on which you have a valid point. But that is no reason for you to use un-Parliamentary language. Irrespective of what anyone writes, everyone must use correct language. Filthy language will not be tolerated. Regards, Admin

    “Repeated violations will be dealt with strictly”

    Finally, faith freedom is fine, but antisemitism cannot be tolerated.

    Thanks!

  6. Face_The_Truth says:

    To Unknown Scholar:

    Please stop Christian proselytizers on this FaithFreedom.Org website.

    I do not and DID NOT initiate any conversation with Christian proselytizers.

    Christian proselytizers DID repeatedly try to proselytize me with millennia-old Christian falsehoods.

    Rational and collegial arguments DO NOT work with Christian proselytizers.

    Best regards.

  7. Most unfortunately, many or most of the Editors are also very busy and can’t be logged in. This Editor tries his best to delete comments with un-Parliamentary language, or at least edit them. This editor will try to log in more frequently and do so. This admin has also addressed one such comment maker directly and asked him to avoid filthy language. Repeated violations will be dealt with strictly.

    Dr. Ali Sina
    I shall be glad if you would instruct the moderator to delete all filthy comments or to ban those commentators who consistently use filthy language. I remember once this site was one of the top few thousand sites. Hope you will strive hard to bring back this site to a new level. Any religionists, whether Buddhists, Hindus, Christians, Muslims or Atheists, humanists should be able to opine in this Faith Freedom, without being attacked with vulgar language. Many Muslims were chased out with “Pedo-Mohammad” “pimp Allah” etc. Now this site is totally devoid of their say. This is my personal opinion.

  9. Face_The_Truth says:

    Dear readers:

    Islam, Christianism and Judaism were all man-made false and harmful religions where inherent human darkness of mind was profoundly manifested.

    Like biological evolution processes, human social structures are also evolutionary as well as revolutionary.

    From pre-historic times, humans (i.e., Homo sapiens) evolved both biologically and socially.

    Those people today who claim that, Western civilization’s morality and moral laws came exclusively from or originated exclusively from Christianism and Judaism in order to form and sustain Western Civilization are liars.

    And, liars are everywhere from top-level public and private universities to top-level government and non-governmental positions.

    Judaism incorporated many things from non-Jews and, subsequently, propagated those things as the de novo inventions of Judaism.

    Similarly, Christianism incorporated many things from Judaism and discarded many things from Judaism as well, for example, Christian scribes wrote an absolutely fictitious moral story in the New Testament about Joshua Ben-Joseph saving a harlot from being stoned to death according to Jewish moral laws of the day.

    Islam unabashedly incorporated stoning female adulterers to death, cutting off limbs for the crime of stealing, and beheading of apostates and non-believers of Islam strictly from Jewish moral laws.

    Jews rejected polytheism and created so-called “Mono-Theism” for exclusive worship of a fictitious Jewish God named “Jehovah” who did not like to be worshipped with anyone else!

    Similarly, Islam’s founder incorporated fictitious Jewish God named “Jehovah” by just another name called “Allah” who refused to be worshipped along with any other God; because, Islam’s founder formulated and practiced on the idea that any other God was false, except Allah.

    So, the Poison-Tree of so-called “Mono-Theism” planted by the Jews under the guidance of Jewish prophet Moses for exterminating as well as subjugating all native people of Middle East in order to establish Judaism as the only true religion came to bite all Jews when Islam’s founder Muhammad claimed to be the last prophet in the succession of dozens of Jewish prophets in the annals of Judaism.

    Jewish prophets systematically murdered non-Jews to establish Judaism in Middle East and Islam’s founder murdered as well as exiled all Jews in order to establish Islamism in the medieval Arabian Peninsula and beyond.

  10. Face_The_Truth says:

    The author — Thomas Jacob — has alluded to the de-similarities between Christianism and Islam by the headline “The Myth of the Three Abrahamic Religions”.

    When I think about the headline, I find rather so many similarities that I can say, Islam’s founder actually lured pre-Islamic Arab people by Jãnnãt al’Ferdous (i.e., highest level of Islamic paradise) 1400 years ago.

    World’s faithful Muslims believe in the Last Day (Qiyãmat), the everlasting Paradise (Jãnnãt), and the infinite, never-ending Hell (Jãhãnnãm).

    Humans — by nature — seek better health, better lifestyle and better future!

    That’s just biological truth.

    Just by believing in Islamic doctrines — as given by Islam’s founder 1400 years ago — world’s faithful Muslims feel they are better off.

    Because, the alternative is the infinite Hell (Jãhãnnãm).

    World’s Muslims do not like Jãhãnnãm.

    World’s Muslims prefer Jãnnãt (the everlasting Islamic Paradise).

    Plus, brutally murdering non-believers of Islam as well as looting everything from non-believers of Islam is the eternal Islamic ideological commandment until Muslims conquer and displace all non-believers of Islam on earth!

    Who can deny world’s poor Muslims from becoming rich by dispossessing all non-believers of Islam in this world when, as I’ve said, it is within the human biological spirit that strives for betterment in any way possible?

    Muslims believe that earth belongs to them and non-believers of Islam are just pariahs who deserve death on earth and eternal punishment in Jãhãnnãm (Islamic Hell) after death.

    Similarly, world’s Christians condemn non-believers for not accepting “God the Father” and one and only begotten “Son” of “God the Father” who supposedly and or quite stupidly died on the Christian Cross for the “sins” of all non-believers!

    According to Christian doctrines, non-believers are the worshippers of demons and evil.

    According to Christian doctrines, non-believers are guided by the Satan.

    According to Christian doctrines, non-believers must be burned alive on earth and be allowed to burn and rot in everlasting Christian Hell after death.

    After all, non-believers committed “sins” and, always, keep committing “sins” while due to non-believers’ never-ending “sins”, the one and only begotten “Son” of “God the Father” died like a street-dog on the Christian Cross for no fault of his own!

    So, today’s Christians lure unsuspecting, gullible and financially poor to accept the one and only begotten “Son” of “God the Father” and “sin” no more.

    Once unsuspecting, gullible and financially poor accept and put into practice Christian doctrines as taught by Christian churches, the unsuspecting, gullible and financially poor seek betterment of their lives both physically and financially on earth while wait for the final day when those unsuspecting, gullible and financially poor will enter Christian Heaven for everlasting happiness that only Christianity can deliver!

    Who will blame unsuspecting, gullible and financially poor for seeking betterment of their miserable existence on earth?

    This message is written for screen-names Stanley_the_Christian and Passive_Observer_the_Christian:

    You Christians are congenital liars and, consequently, historic falsehoods are the base of world’s Christians all over.

    So, it is useless to refute your every sentence in your every post while wasting my valuable time in typing.

    Because, you Christians will believe in whatever serves your mental desires, not what the actual historical truth is.

    Christians like you conflate “Hindu” generosity and “Hindu” forbearance towards anyone throughout our known history as weakness of “Hindus” and “Hinduism”.

    You Christians and world’s Muslims unite to kill “Hindus” because of your shared Middle-Eastern “Mono-Theism”, which is nothing but demonizing non-believers of your Jesus Christ and Muhammad.

    Face_The_Truth
    Oops! This is unbearable filth. I think the moderator is sleeping. Decent people runaway from this site. Face the truth, you are letting down the Hindu culture. I have a great respect for the Hindus and Hindu culture. Westerners too. They go to Bali because it is the only Hindu enclave. Only Christians and Hindus welcome multiculturism, not the Buddhist Japan or the Muslim Saudi Arabia. Credit should be given to Sanatana Dharma for absorbing the best from the British. According to K.N.Subramanian, a Brahmin, Novelist, literary critic, ‘British has changed the Indian life totally. They caused/influenced to stop, ‘sati’ (widow jumps into the husband’s burning pyre), to stop child marriages,(in 1820 when diarrhoea attacked, there were nearly one million child widows, widows are bad omen, so their heads are shaven and sent to the kitchen all their life)’. British missionaries brought a sort of renaissance to the 73 languages in North India alone; changes in the alphabet, creating dictionaries etc. British introduced parliamentary democracy and Christian civilization, etc.

    You can see the difference in the neighbouring country Afghanistan, where the British couldn’t enter. When a UNO officer Mr. A. Muthulingam visited Afghanistan in 1990, he met the wider cross section of people both educated and ordinary. He found that the most educated people know only up to the 7th multiplication table. In the book “FREEDOM AT MIDNIGHT” BY Larry Collins and Dominique Lapierre, they expected Muslims with one God would do well, but they found that Hindus who have outdone the Muslims. Yes, credit goes to Sanatana Dharma.

  17. Passive observer says:

    Jacob, thanks for the above article and for the article “Pope Francis Ignores the true nature of Islam”. My opinion is that Pope cannot behave like far right leaders. Fault lies with political correctness of the Western leaders. They have the clout not the Pope. Pope John Paul did say nothing about Islam, yet a Muslim youth Mehemet Accai shot him four times at a close range. Pope Francis behaves like Jesus with empathy, compassion and love. At least 10% of 1,600 million Muslims, about 160 million, watch the Pope how he conducts his affairs.
    As per your above article, though everyone calls “The three Abrahamic religions” there is a vast difference between Islam and Christianity. There is less than 1% of Catholics in Myanmar and so in Muslim Bangladesh, yet Pope Francis visited these countries. It was a great consolation to 600,000 Rohingya Muslim refugees, though he did nothing except appealing to the international community to do more help.
    When all the people of other religions searching for God and went up to Himalaya, only the Son of God came in search of man

    “Blessed is the Lord God for He has visited and redeemed His people” (Luke 1:68)
    “This is love; not that we loved God but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins” (1John 4:10)
    Pope Francis did the same thing .Do you think Pope Benedict XVI will be able to visit any Muslim country with 1% Christians? There are times and places for criticisms. For instance, Pope John Paul attacked USA and brought liberation to Cuba and worked hard with President Reagan and brought down Communism.
    What is Ayatolah Khamenie, the second to Allah on Earth, doing when his own Muslims are suffering in Myanmar? He is busy thinking how to hoodwink the West and make atomic bombs. Perhaps he would have ordered the Houthies to kill Abdullah Saleh, the ex-prime minister of Yemen for 30 years, when he made overtures to peace with Saudi Arabia. So much so for the religion of peace.

    Are you still in your twenties with boiling blood over the British administration of India? Cool down. For the last 6000 years every country, every nation, every tribe made wars and India is not an exception. Chola and Pallava dynasties of South India captured lands up to Indonesia. The largest Hindu temple is at Angkor Wat, Cambodia. So there is nothing new about that England looted India. The original sin goes to Muslims who invaded many counties from Arabia to Spain. After the 800 year rule of Spain only, as a counter measure, the maritime powers of Europe started colonising other counties including India. To my knowledge British did not kill millions of Indians. The only major incident happened in Punjab where 1500 civilians were shot dead; in other areas there were a few civilian casualties. Thanks to Gandhi’s non-violence movement. It is the Muslims who killed 80 million Hindus during their 800 year rule; and they did not build a single university.
    $100,000,000 a year is nothing when compared to the British education system in India. They built prestigious universities in Bombay Delhi, Calcutta, Allahabad and Madras. When they leave in 1947 there were 21 universities and 496 colleges with science subjects. Nowadays India gains billions of dollars every year because of the initiation of this Education system.
    ”Christians joined with Muslims to divide the sub-continent so that the Hindus would never succeed” is a foolish statement. I never expected this crap from you Face_The_Truth. Before leaving India British allowed the local leaders Jinnah, Gandhi, Nehru, Patel, Ashad and others, to sort out their problem. Reluctantly Gandhi Nehru and their ilk acceded to the demands of Jinnah. Even if Britain sided with the Muslims it was a blessings in disguise. What Muslims can contribute to the development of India? Pakistan and Bangladesh are struggling to exist as nations. 170 million Muslims are already a burden to India with the Kashmir issue. If Pakistanis 190 m, and Bangladeshis 180m are included, there will be 540 m Muslims in India. Can you imagine the problems they would create?
    How about the largest railway system in the world built by the British? Do you think, if not for the British, India would have built such an extensive net-work of railways? The fact is India is unable to maintain what the British have built. How about the tea industry? You may say British did all this for selfish purpose. I agree.

    Above all, the British brought to an end of the Muslim rule in India. You have to thank them all your life; otherwise you would be a Muslim now with four wives and forty children.
    Face_The_Truth, please take care of your spiritual life. You know how the Hindu temples are purified after renovation work. So how can we humans enter into heaven with adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, and outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries and the like without purifying ourselves? There is a cost to be paid. Christians believe that Jesus, the Son of God paid with His own blood at the cross, just as your Saama veda says “Raththa prethoshanam papa vimosanam”

  20. Face_The_Truth says:

    World’s Muslims believe that, before Islam’s founder propagated Islam there was only IGNORANCE in the Arabian Peninsula, because world’s all non-believers did not acknowledge the “fact” that all other faiths, all other beliefs and all other religions are false except Islam.

    Only Islam is true and all others are false and all others must be replaced by Islam all over the world, according to world’s 1.5 billion and rapidly growing faithful Muslims to this day!

    So, I’ve searched for any written or conjectured historical accounts of pre-Islamic Arabian Peninsula for many years and below I quote one of my readings to my readers at FaithFreedom.Org website.

    ===========================================================

    Muslim theologians and historians present a pretty dark picture of pre-Islamic Arabia.

    Its people, we are told, were unrepentant Pagans and polytheists unware of the “Unity of God” and the succession of his Prophets.

    They believed — we are told — that Allãh, the one and only True God, stood in need of partners who could mediate between him and his creatures.

    Worse still, they gave daughters to Allãh while they preferred sons for themselves, we are told.

    They worshipped stones (authãn) and statues (aSnãm) and offered sacrifices to Satans, we are told.

    They had had no Prophet (Rasûl) and possessed no scripture (Kitãb) of their own, we are told.

    Consequently, they were ignorant of the Last Day (Qiyãmat), as also of Heaven (Jannat) and Hell (Jahannam).

    They revelled in blood feuds, and buried alive their female infants, we are told.

    Sons married their step-mothers, and the same man two or more uterine sisters, we are told.

    And so on, till the conviction grows on the readers or listeners that the pre-Islamic Arabs were despicable barbarians!

    Christian theologians and Christian historians follow suit.

    Christians do not endorse Muhammad as a prophet; in fact, Christians call him an impostor!

    All the same, Christians prefer him to the Pagans and polytheists whom he fought and subdued.

    Christians do NOT concede that Muhammad’s message was spiritually sound or morally adequate.

    Yet Christians hail his teachings as a marked improvement on the mode of worship and morals which prevailed earlier!

    Thus Christians stand solidly, though negatively, united with their Muslim counterparts in denouncing the state of affairs in pre-Islamic Arabia.

    And there is no dearth of Indian “Hindu” scholars, even “Hindu” saints, who join the Christian chorus.

    Even those “Hindus” who are by no means enamoured of Islam and distrust or despise Islam as a religion, regard Islam none-the-less an immense improvement over what went in Arabia before its advent.

    They say that Islam united the “Arab rabble” into a “nation”, and gave them at least the “rudiments of culture”.

    It never occurs to these “Hindus” that Muslim scholars who denounce pre-Islamic Arabia view pre-Islamic India also as an “area of darkness” to which Islam brought “illumination” for the first time!

    Though Indian “Hindus” have been victims of Islamic aggression for several centuries, few of them feel sympathy for victims of the same aggression elsewhere.

    The pre-Islamic Arabs seem to have no case simply because no one and almost nothing has survived to tell their side of the story.

    Unlike the Indian “Hindus” who have survived the onslaught of Islam and can compare what they had with what was brought in by Islam, the pre-Islamic Arabs have passed into what is more or less a total oblivion.

    The Prophet of Islam and his rightly-guided Caliphs saw to it that NO trace was left of the pre-Islamic religion and culture of Arabia, not even in the consciousness of the converts.

  21. Face_The_Truth says:

    Franz Babinger writes vis-a-vis the pre-Islamic Sabaean civilization of Arabia:

    “The new creed had the greatest interest in obliterating all recollection of the Pagan period, not only in stone monuments which still survived the natural weathering — these were destroyed to provide material for new buildings, or burned for lime or sometimes out of sheer vandalism — but also in literature, and even in consigning the ancient language to oblivion.”

    Whatever could not be wiped out was converted so completely as to look like a contribution of Islam.

    The Ka’ba and the Hajj ceremonies provide excellent examples!

    So does the Arabic language which, although it retains its old sounds and syntax, has been made to convey meanings and concepts which were foreign to it in its pristine state.

    The greatest blow which pre-Islamic Arabia has suffered is the perversion of its history.

    An overwhelming majority of the Arabs had never heard of Abraham before Muhammad started mentioning him; those few who had, had no reason to like him in view of the contempt which his people, the Jews settled in Arabia, had continued to pour on the Arabs.

    Moreover, it was not long before the birth of Muhammad that the King of Yemen who had converted to the creed of Abraham had massacred thousands of Christianised Arabs.

    Therefore, the Arabs who were extremely tolerant in matters of belief could not but have looked askance at the very name of Abraham.

    Yet the Prophet proclaimed that the Arabs were the progeny of Abraham through his elder son, Ismael!

    The Prophet went much farther.

    The Prophet “discovered” that the foremost Arab temple, the Ka’ba at Mecca, had been built by Adam, renovated by his son, Seth, and rebuilt by Abraham!

    The Prophet accused the Arabs of having usurped, for polytheistic worship, a place which was originally meant to be a mosque!

    The Christian and Islamic theologians and historians — who followed — abolished the real forefathers of the Arabs altogether and linked them to lineage of the Jews.

    Small wonder that every comprehensive history of Arabia written by pious Muslim chroniclers starts with Adam and Eve, and fills its spaces with the progeny of Abraham.

    This Islamic version of Arab history would have continued to prevail if modern scholarship had not rescued the true version by means of painstaking research.

    “Our knowledge of the history,” writes Fritz Hommel, “we owe partly to inscriptions found in the country, partly in contemporary literatures and monuments of other nations (Babylonians and Assyrians, Egyptians, Hebrews, Greeks and Romans) and partly also (for the centuries immediately preceding Muhammad) to early Islamic tradition.

    As early as the 3rd millennium B.C. the old Babylonian inscriptions mention a King Manium (also in the fuller form Mannudannu) or Magan of East Arabia; there is much to be said for the view that Magan was only a Sumerian rendering of an Arabic Ma’ãn and that from this centre was founded (at a date unknown to us) the South Arabian kingdom of Ma’ãn (later vocalisation Ma’în) or the Minaean state which perhaps in the beginning embraced the whole of South Arabia.

    In addition a district named Melukh is mentioned as lying further off, probably covering Central and North West Arabia from which as well as from Magan the Sumerians e.g. Gudea of Sirgulla (about 2350 BC) imported a large quantity of products (wood, stone and metals) for their temples.”

    The same sources tell us about the Sabaeans who flourished in Arabia from 800 BC onwards, till they were “swept away by the wave of Muhammadan conquest.”

    They practised “an ancient natural religion” in which “the sun, the moon, and the planets” figured prominently.

    They “believed in the migration of the soul and in great world periods constantly renewed in an everlasting revolutions,” which remind us of the “Hindu” theories of rebirth and the yugas.

    They built “massive temples” and “handsome gold and silver statues of their chief Gods.”

    The Greeks and the Romans knew “Saba and three other South Arabian kingdoms” as the areas which produce frankincense, myrrh, cassia and cinnamon, and praised them “as brave soldiers, industrious tillers of the soil and traders and skilful sailors” who “sent out colonies or at least trading settlements into foreign lands, especially India.”

    Modern archaeology has exposed “sculptures and remains of colonnades, palaces, temples, city walls, towers, public works, especially water-works etc., which confirm the brilliant picture of Sabaean culture”.

    Similar is the story of the Nabataeans who arose in North Arabia or Arabia Petraea about the same time as the Sabaeans in Arabia Flex or South Arabia, and extended their sway upto the frontiers of Hijaz.

    They were ‘never completely subjected either by the Assyrians, or the Medes, Persians or the Mecedonian kings.’

    It was the Romans who conquered for the first time a part of the Nabataean kingdom in the north in AD 106 and named it Provincia Arabia.

    The Nabataeans too were great traders who ‘attained’ the position of monopolists in Near Asia.”

    In their pantheon, which we know “mainly from tombs and votive inscriptions, the principal God was Dushara (Dhu’l-Sharã), the principal goddess Allãt.”

    None of the Minaean or Sabaean or Nabataean inscriptions mentions Abraham or Ismael or any term indicative of the Judeo-Christian belief system which Muhammad will impose on the Arabs in the form of Islam.

    It is only towards the end of the Pagan period that a South Arabian inscription dated AD 542-543 mentions for the first time “the power and grace and mercy of the Merciful (RaHmãnãn) and his Messiah and the Holy Spirit.”

    The inscription was set up by Abraha, the Governor of South Arabia, on behalf of the Christian king of Abyssinia.

    How Abraha became what he became is an interesting story which explains the repugnance felt by the Pagan Arabs for both Judaism and Christianity, as also for the names and terms associated with these creeds.

    “Many are called but few are chosen” (Mathew 22:14). Many read the Bible day and night but only the chosen few understand it.

    There is a proper way to see how Christianity started and spread all over the world. Alexander the Great invaded many parts of Europe and promoted Greek Language and Greek culture. Subsequently Romans too promoted Greek language and culture almost all over Europe. It is to be noted that all 27 books of the NT were written in Greek language and the disciples of Jesus were able to write letters (epistles) in Greek to Romans, Corinthians, Galatians, etc., and able to travel along well built highways (by the Romans) and interact and preach the gospels. Christians faced persecutions not only in Palestine but also in Rome. Emperor Nero burned Christian suburbs, threw some before hungry lions, crucified the first Pope –St. Peter, and beheaded the 13th Apostle St. Paul. However, Christians patiently prayed hard and waited for a miracle. It happened. Emperor Constantine accepted Christianity and destroyed Roman gods like Hercules, Apollo, Victoria, and Dionysius etc. that paved the way for the full conversion of all Europe. These European missionaries went all over world and preached the Gospels.
    Here we see that Jesus confronted the most powerful Roman Empire on earth. A fake Jesus would have gone behind a weaker nation.
    Jesus confronted Saul the fiercest enemy who witnessed the murder of St. Stephen, persecuted Christians and went to Damascus to persecute more. After meeting Jesus Saul became St. Paul, the greatest missionary, the world has ever seen. (Acts Chapter 9). A fake Jesus would have gone behind a gullible person.

    Jesus wants to emphasize to his followers that to enter the Kingdom of God and meet HOLY God face to face, they should be born again –meaning a new life devoid of sinful thoughts, words, and deeds. In order to proclaim this vital message Jesus has chosen Nicodemus! a member of the powerful council ‘Sanhedrin’ through which Romans ruled the Jews in Palestine. In today’s terms Nicodemus could be a Bishop, professor, Supreme Court judge, a Revenue Officer (Collector) all combined and has direct access to Roman Governor Pilate. Since he is a man of TRUTH he humbly comes to Jesus in the night to know Him more. But Jesus told him to his face. “VERY TRULY I TELL YOU, NO ONE CAN ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD UNLESS THEY ARE BORN OF WATER AND THE SPIRIT” (John 3:5).

    If Jesus is fake, he would have told this ‘born again’ message to the Samaritan woman who had five husbands. (Next chapter John 4)

  25. Face_The_Truth says:

    THIS IS HOW CHRISTIANISM STARTED:

    ‘Genesis and Character of Christianity

    Some historians in the West have serious doubts about the very
    existence of a man called “Jesus Christ”.

    And, almost all historians agree that if he existed at all, nothing
    can be known about his person or teaching because all contemporary
    sources, Christian and non-Christian, are either silent or unreliable
    regarding the subject.

    Thus, all we have is the “Jesus of the Gospels” which are now regarded
    as theological statements rather than a record of historical events.

    And “Jesus of the Gospels” is a questionable character!

    He makes tall claims about himself, and curses all those who do not
    accept those claims.

    He denounces his own people as sons of the Devil and killers of prophets.

    In due course, Christian theology came to proclaim that Jesus was the
    only-begotten son of the only true “God the Father”; that the
    only-begotten son of “God the Father”, namely Jesus, had been sent
    down in order to wash with his own blood the sins of mankind by
    mounting the Cross; that Jesus had risen from the dead on the third
    day and appeared to his apostles in flesh and bones; that Jesus was
    the same as his “God the Father” whose divinity he shared in full;
    that those who accepted Jesus as the only savior had all their sins
    washed by Jesus’s blood; that Jesus had entered his apostles as the
    “Holy Ghost” and entrusted them with the mission of saving all mankind
    from eternal hell-fire; that the Christian Church founded by the
    apostles and joined by the converts was Jesus’s body and bride; and
    that the whole world had been mandated to the Christian Church by the
    “Father” and the “Son” and the “Holy Ghost”.

    What one finds striking about these ridiculous and absolutely
    laughable statements is that none of them can stand the test of human
    reason or experience.

    The Christian Church declares them to be mysteries beyond the reach of
    human understanding!

    The apostles had tried to sell these “mysteries” to the Jews in Jerusalem.

    The only response they met was dismissal with contempt from the Jews.

    Next, the apostles tried these “mysteries” on Jewish communities
    settled in Syria, Asia Minor, and Greece.

    The apostles had some small success, but most of the time met with
    considerable resistance.

    Finally, the apostles took this “merchandise” to the metropolitan mart
    at Rome where their business found some firm footing for the first
    time!

    It was in Rome that the methods of Christian missionary salesmanship
    were matured over a period of time.

    The structure of the Roman Empire provided a model for the structure
    of the Christian Church.

    The Christian missionaries got busy building a state within the state!

    In the next two centuries, the Church became a rich and powerful
    organization with members in many leading families of Rome.

    It found many adherents among politicians who wielded power, among
    military commanders who were superstitious or in need of political
    support, and among merchants who had money, but no brains for
    philosophical questions.

    The mother of Emperor Severus (222-235 AD) became a Christian.

    So did Emperor Philip the Arabian (244-249 AD).

    Helena, the mother of Emperor Constantine, was also a Christian convert.

    Now the Church extended the “Divine Right” to rule as a despot to
    anyone who was prepared to declare Christianity as the sole state
    religion and suppress all Pagan religions.

    Emperor Constantine who wanted to secure a dynastic succession for his
    family — a practice unknown to Roman politics so far — saw his
    opportunity in this new doctrine, and proclaimed in favor of the
    Christian Church.

    The common people in Rome resisted this royal renegade.

    So, Emperor Constantine removed his capital from Rome to Byzantium
    which was renamed “Constantinople”!

    The precedent set by Emperor Constantine in consolidating a dynastic
    despotism with the help of the Church was copied by many crowned heads
    all over Europe in subsequent centuries.

    The king in Pagan societies was only the first among equals.

    The Church enabled him to become an unbridled autocrat who derived his
    authority not from the community over which he ruled, but from “God
    the Father”.

    The conflicts which developed between these autocrats and the powerful
    Christian Church with a Pope at its head, came much later, after the
    common people all over Europe had been enslaved and deprived of their
    traditional institutions which safeguarded their fundamental freedoms.

    For quite some time, the Christian Church cooperated with the kings to
    convert the common people everywhere into hewers of wood and drawers
    of water!

    This was just one part of the Christian history.

    Another part was a large-scale destruction of ancient religions all
    over Europe, Asia Minor, and North Africa where the Church spread its
    tentacles with the help of despotic rulers.

    All Pagan schools were closed, all Pagan temples were demolished or
    converted into Christian churches, and all Pagan images were publicly
    defiled and destroyed.

    Pagan books were burnt and Pagan priests were killed, mostly by
    Christian monks who led Christian mobs after lecturing them into
    fevered frenzy!

    That is how Christianity triumphed over Pagan religions and societies
    — not by the power of its moral or spiritual superiority or the logic
    of its doctrines, but by the power of the sword wielded by despicable
    Christian despots.’

    ===========================================================

    THIS IS HOW ISLAM STARTED

    ‘Genesis and Character of Islam:

    Muhammad followed in the footsteps of Jesus in making the same sort of
    claims for himself, cursing his own people in the choicest language of
    “Mono-Theism”, and threatening them with slaughter.

    Muhammad, however, did not have to struggle against a centralized
    state when he found that his “Prophethood” had no attraction for the
    Pagan people of Mecca.

    Muhammad migrated to Yathrib — was later renamed “Medina” from Madinat
    al’Nabi — which was more receptive to “Mono-Theism” because of a large
    presence of Jews in that town (i.e., Yathrib), and Muhammad emerged as
    a powerful potentate.

    Muhammad, however, ended by exiling or brutally killing en masse the
    Jewish “Mono-Theist” populations of Yathrib which resisted him as soon
    as Muhammad came out in his true colors!

    Meanwhile, Muhammad had amassed much wealth by plundering merchant
    caravans and scattered Pagan Arab settlements.

    Muhammad created the nucleus of a standing army out of the toughs and
    desperados who flocked to him in increasing numbers for committing
    crimes and sharing the loot.

    In short, Muhammad built the apparatus of a military state in “Medina”
    and used it for imposing his closed creed on the tribal settlements of
    Pagan Arabia by means of armed force.

    The doctrines of Islam were tailored to the needs of this galloping
    tyranny, and sold with the help of the sword.

    And the sword was stamped with the name of a fictitious one and only
    almighty “Allah” (i.e., Jehovah) in whose service the ancient religion
    and culture of Arabia were destroyed root and branch.’

    Just as a coin has two sides, every issue has two sides. Michael Moore, an American, has claimed that 9/11 attack was an inside job. He doesn’t belong to the TRUTH. If he is, he would have raised the question “How can the establishment can kill its 3000 citizens when President Nixon was asked to resign for telling a single lie in the Water Gate affair? Or President Bill Clinton was asked to resign by the Congress for a minor sex affair.
    Communism like an infectious disease that spreads to more than 150 countries and billions believed in it. Now it has crumbled. Lenin, Stalin and Mao are no more the pillars of society, for they do not belong to the TRUTH
    1500 million Muslims believed that Jesus was not crucified and Islam is the religion of Peace. That too is crumbling. Islam does not belong to the TRUTH.
    Thanks for your link, it clearly proves that Mathew, Mark, Luke and John did not sit together around a table and cook up a story of Jesus, copying the stories of other gods, like Adonis, Zeus, Osiris, Mithras etc.
    Bible scholars are correct that the four evangelists used OT to prove Jesus is the Messiah. Anything wrong? Just as quoting the Hindu scripture Saama Veda “raththa prathoshanam paapa vimoshanam”. It means without shedding blood, (just as Christ did), there is no atonement for sin. While everyone was running behind various gods up to Himalaya only the Son of God came in search of sinners and paid a big price to redeem them that even a novelist cannot imagine.
    Trevor Burris is one of the millions who have criticized Jesus, gospels, Christianity and Bible. It appears he doesn’t have deeper understanding of the background of the gospel writers. For instance John, perhaps the youngest of the twelve, has intimate relationship with Jesus. In the picture of last supper you can see he leans towards Jesus’ shoulder. Before His last breath Jesus hands over His Mother Mary to John. In such a close relationship John’s gospel, written, last in the AD 90s, is much different and more ‘personal’ from that of other three. He says emphatically “THE WORD BECAME FLESH AND MADE HIS DWELLING AMONG US. WE HAVE SEEN HIS GLORY. (John 1:14)
    Even If Jesus did not exist, or the gospels are cock and bull stories, Jesus’ words, as He is called WORD OF GOD, transform millions of people, which you cannot deny. Nelson Mandela, though he was imprisoned for 27 years, was able to forgive Botha Government and he exhorted the black majority to forgive the minority white racists.
    We owe so much to Miss Nightingale, for initiating the nursing industry by removing the clothes of soldiers and applied medicine 150 years ago, and also to the Red Cross workers who amidst bombing and fighting take care of the injured and millions of refugees.
    Today for the love of Jesus millions of NGOs and 700,000 nuns are working round the clock to make the world a better place to live in. 85% of all good works are done by the so called Christians.
    When Mahatma Gandhi was asked, he replied “Even if Jesus did not exist I will venerate Him for His words. Yes Mahatma Gandhi belongs to the TRUTH.

  27. Face_The_Truth says:

    THE FOLLOWING QUOTATION IS FOR SCREEN-NAME Passive_Observer.

    ‘Christian Gospel writers’ failure to retroactively fulfill Jewish prophecy:

    It is clear that the writers of the Christian Gospels tried to tie their narrative of Jesus the Nazarene Jew to some of the Jewish prophecies of the Old Testament.

    Most believing Christians accept that the Jewish prophecies were genuinely historically fulfilled, but there is compelling evidence that this is NOT so.

    This is best summed up by Trevor Burris: (http://trevorburrus.newsvine.com/_news/2008/03/05/1345329-10-reasons-why-christianity-is-wrong).

    The Christian evangelists poured through the Old Testament and found “prophecies” that predicted Jesus’s life.

    After all, there had to be grander reasons why their great teacher had been executed like a common criminal.

    In the pages of Jewish scripture Christian evangelists found those reasons!

    The writers of the Christian Gospels then consciously wrote their Gospels in order to retroactively fulfill Jewish prophecy.

    That this happens at all is beyond dispute.

    Sometimes, while stumbling over themselves to “fulfill” Jewish prophecy, the writers of the Christian Gospels get it horribly wrong:

    Mark (1:1-3), using shoddy sources, begins his Gospel with “prophecy” that mistakenly conflates two Old Testament versus; Isaiah 40:3 and Malachi 3:1. Matthew (1:20-23) uses a mistranslated Old Testament, in which the Hebrew almah, (meaning “young woman”) was changed to the Greek parthenos (meaning a physical virgin), as a justification for the immaculate conception.

    Matthew (21:1-7) so wants to fulfill a “prophecy” from another shoddy source that has combined Isaiah 62:11 and Zachariah 9:9, that he misinterprets the passage — which only speaks of one animal (with subsequent qualifiers) — and has Jesus ride into Jerusalem, in some bizarre act of balance, on two animals. (The other Gospel writers are quick to correct this grievous error.)

    Thus, we begin to see that not only is it a manifest absurdity to believe the Gospels are history, it becomes tenuous to believe they are even accurate!

    Biblical scholars have established that the writers of the Christian Gospels felt compelled to connect the story of Jesus to the messianic Jewish prophecies of the Old Testament in an effort to convince potential followers that Jesus was the promised Jewish messiah.

    We now have enough evidence to conclude that the prophecies were “fulfilled” only on papyri.’

  28. Passive observer says:

    Christians do not believe Mohammad as the last and final prophet. About forty prophets from Abraham to John the Baptist were sent to prepare the chosen Jewish people, for the coming of the hero of the Bible Jesus Christ. There are more than 300 prophesies about Jesus in the Old Testament. It took about 1600-2000 years to prepare the Jewish people. It appears that God determined to bring His son from a people where there is no practice of polygamy or worshipping of stones and statues. God repeatedly punished the idol worshippers. Though monogamy was instituted when God said to Adam and Eve “FOR THIS CAUSE A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND CLEAVE TO HIS WIFE AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH” (Genesis 2:24), King David, Solomon and others had many wives.
    For the Christians the last prophet was John the Baptist, who was specially sent to give baptism to Jesus. John who shouted “PREPARE THE WAY FOR THE LORD’S COMING! CLEAR AND MAKE PATH STAIGHT FOR HIM (Mark 1:3). “When the fullness of time had come God sent forth His son”(Galatians 4:4-7)
    After the Son of God has come to the world there was no necessity to send any prophet or messenger. Jesus cautioned everyone about the false prophets “YOU WILL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS (Mathew 7:15-20)

  29. Face_The_Truth says:

    I thank Thomas Jacob for writing historical truth here.

    The author — Thomas Jacob — has left out a few other historical aspects, which I prefer to post here for my readers.

    Islam’s founder Muhammad was born a very long time after his supposed biological father — Abd’Allah ibn Abd al’Muttalib — actually died.

    That means, there is both historical possibility as well as historical probability for Islam’s founder Muhammad being born out of rape of his Pagan biological mother named Amina by an Arab Bedouin and, consequently, soon after birth Muhammad was actually sent to reside with a Bedouin family in the desert of Arabian Peninsula.

    Arabic word “Muhammad” means “Praiseworthy”.

    Typically, a son follows his biological father’s religion in 99% of our known cases and, within that 99% range, there are many instances as well where a son rejects his biological father’s religion.

    However, based on my studies of Islam’s founder Muhammad the Arabian Bastard, I will not rule out the possibility or probability of his biological mother Amina being raped by a Jew (i.e., a Jewish barbarian).

    Because, in ancient history of the Jews (i.e., people of Judea), Jews were extremely promiscuous people as my readers might conspicuously notice one of the 10 Jewish commandments was “Thou shall not commit adultery!” (i.e., do not f*ck).

    According to my most admired psychiatrists Dr. Sigmund Schlomo Freud, stealing and adultery (or fornication) are primitive urges within humans, because psycho-pathologically humans manifest either one of two primitive urges!

    We also observe within the 10 Jewish commandments, another command is “Thou shall not steal” (i.e., do no deprive the owner of his rightful ownership of anything).

    So, we can again conceptualize that, sexual promiscuity and kleptomania both were widely common amongst barbarian Jews of Middle East, who rejected polytheism for a fictitious one and only God named “Jehovah”.

    My readers might notice that, fictitious “Jehovah” — whom world’s Christians consider “God the Father” — did not tell the Jewish people to stop polygamy and human slavery as well as widespread female sex-slavery.

    Islam’s founder Muhammad’s extreme admiration for Jewish “Mono-Theism” led him to go to war against all Pagan Arabs.

    So, I will not be surprised at all if a Jewish man’s blood was actually flowing in Islam’s founder Muhammad’s veins and arteries — for his biological mother Amina actually being raped by a Jewish barbarian, not by an Arab Bedouin!

    Furthermore, Islam’s founder Muhammad did not find any appreciation for his so-called “Mono-Theism” in Mecca — which was the mostly inhabited by Pagans.

    So, Islam’s founder Muhammad migrated to Yathrib (later re-named as “Medina”) where vast numbers of Jews used to reside.

    Islam’s founder Muhammad adopted as well as assimilated Jewish customs and Jewish cultures in Yathrib (i.e., Medina) and later claimed to be the final prophet in the succession of Abraham to Ishmael to Moses to Daniel to Elijah to Elisha to Joshua to countless other so-called Jewish prophets who worshipped so-called one and only fictitious creator of the universe!
