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.
