The funamental christian spammers take a rest and we get a new one in the name of another god. Surely to all the gods hubpages can institute a number of hubs published before posting gag on these fly-by irritations !!!!!!
Surely this style and type of fundie pronouncement can be labelled spam removed so as to increase the average hubber intelligence by a notch or two ???? never mind remove a load of rubbish from the latest post board.
It may not be that at all; I have heard that the average person needs to have a message repeated 7 times before comprehension actually sets in. Not much of an endorsement of our vaunted mental prowess, but there you are.
Maybe God just needs a few more reiterations of our worship and obeisance to comprehend what we want or how much we worship him. A weeks worth of prayer (35 repetitions) just might turn the trick and if not we can keep repeating the same thing for years.
And you have to be facing mecca in order for the prayers to go through. How many degrees can you be off and still get picked up by the spiritual antennae? Which direction would a believer face if he (I won't bother to say she) were aboard the islamic spaceship 'jihad'? Do believers that work in underground mines have a light upward tilt when they pray toward the holy city? What happens when you pray six times, does it rollover? Or do you get slapped across the head for wasting good prayer vibes? I am so close to being a believer, but these questions weigh down on me day and night, my camel is in layaway, and I stopped bathing.
The spaceship thing is a very valid question, and apparently one that Allah has not considered.
Think about it - the earth is NOT flat, and we know that now. This means that prayers originating in, say, the Americas may actually be pointed toward Betelgeuse or Antares (depending on the time of year and exact location) because of the earths curvature. Is that then considered to be Allah's home?
More likely, I would think, would be Polaris as it has always been of extreme importance to mankind. That, however, means that the faithful in Greenland are actually pointing some other part of their anatomy towards God as they kneel and pray. Picture the geometry of the action...
The Arabs were well aware of this simple fact at that time, it was the christians who spread their ignorance across the (relatively) civilized world of that time, just as they would like to now. Your misunderstanding of how east and the other points of the compass work is your inheritance.
