Let's talk about Muhammad's life
Is it right to say he was a man who did whatever he wanted and justified everything with the quran and hadiths?.

The more I think about his life the more I see that he lived how any selfish greedy man would live. He wanted to justify having sex with who ever he wanted so he took 9 wives and as many slaves as he could get away with which was probably a lot.
In fights/wars he probably was always surrounded by men protecting him.

He lived as best as he could. He wanted to experience all the pleasures he could and conquer everything he could. Justifying everything with his religion that he created.
If someone had a girl or wealth or anything that he wanted he probably would've told them that God says to give it to Muhammad.

What else did he want and do with his life besides sex and power/control, am I missing something

Not to mention likely clinically nucking futs. Like DSM diagnosable, off his rocker insane. Like, would be in a padded room, wrapped in a straitjacket, in Mecca's nearest mental ward bonkers.

Muhammad lived a life of poverty as a religious leader, although he lived well for his time earlier in his life when he was a merchant. According to his apologists, his many wives were mostly either charity cases or because of political alliances. He really did believe in what he was teaching others. He wasn't just taking advantage of his position.

This is not to minimize his many failings by modern standards, but there's no reason to exaggerate.

RE: Let's talk about Muhammad's life
I wonder if he lived at all ? Maybe they made him up too.




Edit :
A lot of suspicious stuff. Like one of his "principle biographers", who supposedly documented either every day or every month of his life, forgot about a calendar adjustment, and (woops) a month or two is actually missing).

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

RE: Let's talk about Muhammad's life
I was about to say this, yeah. I've heard he's a very suspicious character like He's (bog)us of Nada-reth.

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

Risky, writing/chatting about that guy who has decreed images are verboten. Remember, pictures are worth a thousand words - which also means a thousand words is equivalent to a picture. Best to keep the word count turned on during typing so as to not get inadvertently flattened by a peevishly hurled lightning bolt. Tongue

Does it matter? Without a god, "Prophet" is just a polite way of saying "Deluded Windbag".

In RELUCTANT fairness to the man (... er, myth? How much do we know of the man from independent, secular sources?), polygamy was a cultural norm. It's just as likely to think that he did it because it was par for the course, rather than because he was setting up some nefarious social engineering scheme to get his game on.
