Thou shall not kill. Thou shall not commit adultery. Don’t eat pork. I’m sorry, what was that last one? Don’t eat pork. God has spoken. Is it that the word of God or is that pigs trying to outsmart everybody? – Jon Stewert

When I found this quote, I knew it had to come here. It is as much criticism towards Islam as to the whole concept of belief in religion. Islam has many fine, strong and well made points, yet some seems to be a bit out of order.
I know the story behind the whole ‘Don’t eat pork’ thing. The pigs in the seventh century was sick and unhealthy, so it was suggested that people didn’t eat pork. Unfortunately, to the dissatisfaction of Muslims, they haven’t realised that pigs are edible now.
It also critise how religious believers tend to believe in anything, regardless of how stupid it may seem. Science then was idiotically stupid, while science now actually confirms religion.
