Fresno State 44 Toledo 14

Some Quick Notes: RECAP

It sucked that Bruce Gradkowski did not suit up and play. The game would have been more competitive.

Fresno State recorded 5 sacks(unofficial), almost doubling the season total thus far.

Bryson Sumlin was back to his usual self, minus the fumble.

The offensive line looked great. No sacks allowed, no false starts, nor holds.

Pinegar did what was needed, he did not have to be spectacular today.

The linebackers are unreal. IMO, they are the strongest part of the defense.

Special teams were great, minus Stitser's missed PAT.

No real challenge left for the Bulldogs from now until Boise State comes to town November 10. Herbstreit will be in the house for that game, and for those who will miss it in person, it will be broadcast in HDTV.

What is the Koran?

The Koran which they sometimes spell Quran is the so-called holy book of the Islamic or as they sometimes call it Muslim or even Mohammedan religion.

But what it is it?

Well the story is that an angel dictated it to Mohammed. The story goes on to say that the Koran is like a big sudoku puzzle that all of the Arabian letters line up to give you the same sum.

As far as angels giving dictation I don’t know and as far as the sums it is hard to say if you don’t read Arab and I for one have better things to do.

But getting back to the question. I looked at an English translation by Marmaduke Pickthall. Now just to be fair I went to an Islamic shop to buy it. The guy in there, Islamic as they come with the little round hat and all told me that because of the sums you can’t really make a translation. As I like to say I have to spend my time as I see fit and right now that does not include learning the Arab’s language. He told me that he was from Pakistan and they didn’t speak Arab there so they had to learn it so they could understand the Koran. Well finally he sold me this book but said it would not give me a perfect picture.

The whole thing is a bunch of laws and stories. I don’t see that it has any relevance to today’s professional life at all.

As such even having a perfect picture would not fit. It said this guy Pickthall was English who became an Islamic so even he’s got what I might call an ax to grind when it comes to checking and evaluating data. I guess the thing is such a waste of time that nobody with anything better to do ha the time to sit down and write out a translation that the average guy such as me or you could understand.

And, there is a lot of violence in it. I can see that if you got wrapped up in it you would be willing to fly planes into office buildings or go to war over it. I also see how if you believed it you would think any non-Islamic or non-Muslim is some kind of degraded thing to be spat on and thrown in the trash can. Now if that is not religious bigotry then I don’t know what is and I’d like to ask not only my readers here but the Muslim community what they think about this. They are welcome to use this bulletin board or they could email me on jphillips@actfortitle.com and all I would ask is that they write to me in English.

In the past I have called for the eradication of Islam. I am still of the mind that this is a good thing to do. Islam contributes literally nothing to the world except terrorism.

If you don’t believe me on this topic just look at Keith Henson. He is a convicted terrorist bomber serving time in a maximum security prison. He tried to blow up a Church of Scientology and then was a fugitive in Canada. There is conclusive proof that he was helping zealots up there and they were going to poison a river by blowing up a fuel tower. These days Henson gets to eat pancakes three times a day and word is he even has to rinse out his own underwear. What we don’t know for certain is if they let him have a copy of the Koran in jail or not.

Then there is Roger Gonnet. Yes he is French but it is well documented by Homeland Security that there are as many Islamics in France as there are in Kuwait. Gonnet hates real religions and is working for Muslim zealots in France.

More detail on these guys is there for you to read on www.religiousfreedomwatch.org, which will also provide you with basic tutorials containing the truth about the world’s major religions. Even if a religion such as Islam is invalid it can still have a terrifying impact.

You can see this from the history of Islam. A bunch of cannibals found a giant magnet that was probably a meteor and worshipped it. That is because it would attract their knives and so on. They put it into a tent and that’s the beginning of Islam. In the Islamic store they showed me a picture of this tent and told me that the meteor is in there and they call it the pointer stone of Mohammed or something. Everyone had to worship the Pointer or Mohammed ordered them to be killed.

Now Korans are odd things. I like all of the gold decorations. When I was in school we had to read a book by Shakespeare called The Old Curiosity Shop. It was about an old woman who kept not only old junk but her wedding cake from the day that her husband ran off to France or somewhere. I’ll bet she had a Koran or two in there.

Do you want an odd thing kept by a stupid old woman ruling the world? I for one do not think so!
