Fu¢k the bible, where is Mein Kampf by Hitler and The prince by Nicollo Machavelli.

The bible is a work of fiction, folklores and fairytales.

If you don't say this, your people will not know how much you need help.

But OP, what of the Holy Quran?

My friend, you are right in saying people hate Islam. Give me one good reason why people shouldn't hate Islam? By their fruits you shall know them. Moslems keep professing their religion as peaceful but hate, violence and murder is what we see from them.

Go and do this homework yourself. Compare all the countries with Islam against counties without Islam and see how they are in terms of peace and tolerance.

UsA, UK, France, Germany, China....peace
Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Nigeria....war

Christian - Christian: peace
Christian - jews: peace
Christian- Buddhist: peace
Hindu - Buddhist: peace
Islam - Jews: war
Islam- Christian: war
Islam- Buddhist:war
Islam - Islam : war

Most moslems are so dumb, they don't even ask questions as to why their religion is so violent. They don't like to think at all. They are so closed minded and unsophisticated. The ones that decide to seek truth with an open mind end up discovering the evil in Islam.

Don't you mean thats just you want to see & believe, You carry a whole country with millions of Muslims. but because of a few thousand who use the name of Islam for violence, You decided to condemn over a billion Muslims who practice Islam.

My brother if Islam is really about violence, I ASSURE YOU, with our population we would have wiped out the whole world. Just think about it, if a few thousands can cause you to tremble, Imagine what over a billion could do.

The western media keep portraying Islam as evil & Muslims as terrorists, but if you can truly use ur brain, how could the action of few less than 1% be used to judge 99%

And WE ARE EVERYWHERE, EVEN AT THE VATICAN CITY, So in summary ur stuck with us, wether u like us or not, we go still dey with you even on judgment day

#1: The Bible
The Bible, from the word biblia, meaning "the book" in Latin, is a collection of vastly different texts from different times, places, styles, and often contradictory sources, especially when you get into the weeds of the Old versus New Testament.


The Old Testament has some of the most violent and lustful stories ever told, starring the bearded badass Moses, while the New Testament's heartthrob Jesus taught us all that we need to love and perhaps punishments, depending on who you ask.


Yep, but it's true. Sorry, J.K. Rowling, but the Bible is the bestselling book series of all time, providing bedrock principles for 2.2 billion people worldwide. And honestly, don't be offended if I didn't mention your specific religious text, like the Quran or the Flying Spaghetti Monster Manual, because they all teach us something.

The Bible obviously is a founding text of western thoughts and philosophy. The author is however silly with his description of the Book.

The topic is about influencial books. A book might be false in it's assertions but that doesn't stop it from influencing people. Christianity and Islam are very influencial ideas.

Influential but not the best.
Influential but not liberating...

I would have suggested removal of some books from the list, but I realize that being influential doesn't not necessarily mean they are the best.

Visit library genesis @ gen.lib.rus.ec for the pdfs, I got 90% of my ebooks from there.

Look at what you are saying. Your whole comment reeks of vengeance and hunger for blood, typical of a moslem. You couldn't just make your point without threatening to wipe out existence?

Well, let me sink to your level of brutality. Trust me when i say, only North Korea can wipe the whole Islamic nations if they are to fight. You don not have to believe it but it is a fact. If u are educated enough and conversant with global trends, the you will see that this statement is true. Problem with moslems is that you are too bold to make war threats but the world just keeps quite because in the event of war, innocent lives will be lost. This is unlike moslems who don't value human lives for as long as jihad is concerned. I can even name more countries that will wipe out Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Turkey, Iran combined. Only 5 Israeli airforce jet wiped out an entire Egyptian force. I have not even mentioned US, Russia, China.....honestly, if u think any Islamic nation(s) have the military strength to fight any of the aforementioned, then you are naive.

You said I mentioned few small countries? Have you done the research I challenged you do? Name one Islamic country that is not involved in murder, killing etc en mass? In Africa, we have Sudan, Somalia, Gabon...name them. In Asia, we have Iran, Iraq, Qatar, Pakistan, Philistine, Turkey, name them. Only Indonisia is relatively peaceful.

You cannot mention terrorism without Islam. Both words are mutually complementary.

The western people are not just fishing propaganda. They are saying facts. We all see it. Have u ever seen Christian book haram or Christian's killing in the name of Jesus? Have you heard Buddhists killing in the name of Buddha? All we here is Alllaaaaaaaaahhuuuuakbar...and heads rolling.

It is so bad that the president of Egypt once said Islam is the problem of this world and he is right!
