They may be trying to connect with God, but it's not the god of Abraham,
Isaac, and Jacob, but the moon-god, Allah, one of the many pagan idols that
Mohammed chose to follow.
May I suggest actually reading the book, or perhaps take a real religions/
history of the world course from a legitimate school.
Filthy Kuffar: Muhammad didn't worship ANY idols, let alone
MANY.And Hamblin and Peterson have already written about the notion
that Allah is a "pagan moon-god." I can't post a link here, but if
you Google "Deseret News Hamblin Peterson Allah Not Pagan Term,"
you'll find it.
It is refreshing reading Dr. Peterson when he is striving to educate in lieu of
his usual Mormon white washes.
It's really striking, skeptic, that Professor Peterson engages in deceptive
white washing on subjects where you disagree with him but, on topics where
you're sympathetic to his position, transforms himself into an honest and
competent educator. He's quite the Jekyll and Hyde, it seems!
Verdad, yes, I quite agree with you, other than I question your sympathetic
scenario. Reality is truth, white wash is coated propaganda. Where is the
sympathy, they are what they are.
