Bible Vs Quran
The “social experiment” is something has been a particular irritant to me over the past few months, my patience with them though is now at an all time low after coming across what I believe to be the most pointless one to date…
I get the idea, you go out and see how the public react to various situations, and we can all sit back and watch in shock at how kind homeless people are, or how shallow some people can be. The problem with these “social experiments” is that they are never conducted genuinely, and i’m not talking about simply editing the reactions to suit a narrative, but these “experimenters” take it one step further to cut even more corners in actually having a legitimate experiment by simply hiring actors.
Adrien Gee” who was regarded as one of Youtube’s most popular “social experimenters”, was recently exposed by actors he had hired on Star Now after they saw themselves on Youtube for his “Blind Man Experiment” and it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to just look at the others online and see that they stink of free range, 45 day old aged bison shite.
The fraud of social experiments aside, I have found one that I think is worse on many levels, and what is even more surprising is that they may have actually used real people and conducted the “experiment” genuinely?
The “experiment” I am talking about is from Dutch prankers, “Dit Is Normaal”, where they bought a Bible, but changed the cover to say it’s the Qur’an. Then they asked people to read passages and give their thoughts…
When I heard this, my first question was, why? What is the purpose of this experiment and what will it achieve? There has to be a particular “moral of the story” to this experiment? No?
It seems that the only lesson we have learned is that The Bible contains bad things in it as well, and that all religions are equally smelly, that I shall agree – but this revelation is completely irrelevant to the context they were trying to put out there, that Islam is no different from other religions? Which is just nonsense.
Are Christians out there killing people in the name of The Bible every day? Have there been 45,000 terrorist attacks committing in the name of Jesus since 9/11? Are Christian countries stoning women to death? Are Christian countries using The Bible to justify hanging a homosexual from a crane? Are Christians shouting “Jesus is great” as they behead a non Christian? The answer is a big fat NO! Considering the most extreme Christian group you can find today is the Westboro Baptist Church, it makes the comparison laughable.
This ludicrous “experiment” seemingly wants to justify or be an apologist for acts of Islamic terrorism by suggesting that all religions have bad things in them so it’s not just Islam that’s the bad one. Well, I have to disagree. This is a typical tactic used when debating a Muslim on their religion, the only defence I have ever heard is by suggesting that the words are being taken “out of context”, despite never being able to provide an alternative context in which it should be read, or deflecting the debate onto Christianity saying they are bad as well, basically employing blind ignorance as a defence.
I just wonder, how the public would have reacted if they were presented with pieces of scripture from the Quran that call for the death of non-believers such as;
Quran (2:244), Quran (2:216), Quran (3:56), Quran (3:151) , Quran (4:74) , Quran (4:76),Quran (4:89), Quran (4:95), Quran (4:104) , Quran (5:33), Quran (8:12), Quran (8:15), Quran (8:39), Quran (8:57), Quran (8:67) ,Quran (8:59-60), Quran (8:65), Quran (9:5) ,Quran (9:14), Quran (9:20), Quran (9:29),Quran (9:30), Quran (9:38-39), Quran (9:41), Quran (9:73), Quran (9:88), Quran (9:111) , Quran (9:123), Quran (17:16), Quran (18:65-81), Quran (21:44), Quran (25:52 , Quran (33:60-62), Quran (47:3-4), Quran (47:35), Quran (48:29), Quran (61:4), Quran (66:9),
It would be much more interesting to see how people react when a direct link between the terrorism we see in the world today and the faith itself is presented rather than a Bible vs Quran comparison. Now that’s an experiment I would like to see, but inevitably no-one would dare do it because “thats racist” or (my favourite) Islamaphobic..,.
