GUEST,Songbob BS: God balances the books (114* d) RE: BS: God balances the books 17 Aug 10


The comment on the 'God of the Quran,' is right on. Allah = Jahweh, and Abraham was the patriarch of Judaism and Islam, through the sons of his wife (the Jews) and his slave (the Muslims).

From Wikipedia:

For Jews and Christians this is through his son Isaac, by his wife Sarah; for Muslims, he is a prophet of Islam and the ancestor of Muhammad through his other son Ishmael, born to him by Sarah's handmaiden, Hagar.

So when some fundamentalist intones, "My God is greater than the God of the Muslims," he's being a fucking idiot.

And, in conclusion, a definition:

Prayer: A fervent request that God set aside the laws of his creation for the benefit of one self-abasedly 'unworthy.'
