Encore Presentation--Hajj, the Most Shameful Journey in History

This went over so well with the Muslims last year, that I thought this deserved an encore performance.  Don't you agree?



In case you cannot or don't want to watch/listen to the video, here is the video transcript:

The 5th Pillar of Islam wastes more money and effort and time and lives than any other single journey in human history.

Muslims from all around the world - many of them excessively poor - devote a significant proportion of their income to complying with the demand of the Qur'an that they should visit the Kaaba in Mecca, Saudi Arabia at least once in their miserable lives.

I find this a disgusting and lamentable superstition. Not only this, but some of the poorest families in the some of the poorest Muslim countries in the world save all their lives to send their children to wander around a tomb to a long dead deluded bloke called Mohammad - a self-appointed prophet who raised himself above the status of all other humans and still from the ashes reaches out and financially ruins people's lives to this very day by having insisted that all his deluded followers should pop in to his birth town.

You couldn't write more insane fiction than this if you tried. If you saw this on the pages of George Orwell, you would think it would never happen. But it does. And I am sickened by it.

Allah does not exist. Mohammad was just a normal man - now dead for over 1300 years. There is no spiritual realm. Every single Muslim who makes this journey is diverting money and energy away from making this world a better place - building better nations, developing education, science, technology, politics, medicine and so forth. Each Muslim who makes this lamentable journey is guilty of squandering money in as wasteful a way as those people that they criticise for spending on alcohol that they piss down the drain. In some ways, even worse. At least some boozed-up bloke who struggles off to work the next morning with a hangover knows that he has overdone it. Muslims NEVER think they have overdone it and will simply pass on this world-wide destruction of potential to their poor children.

The greatest aim of all Muslims is to take part in the Hajj? No wonder Islam makes its victims less successful in the real world of the 21st Century: their aspirations are so pathetically low.

One correction: Muslims are only supposed to go to Hajj if they have the financial means to do so. However, many still feel obligated and sell their possessions to go to see the stupid cube and walk around it seven times.
