Islam disturbs evolution of Iran

Balatarin

 

Iranians could have continued evolving into their advanced culture and being today a great, free, and advanced nation if this process had not been stopped by the Muslims’ invasion 1400 years ago. This 1400-year old belief system is now politically re-grafted on our society after the 1979 revolution disturbing progress in democracy, economy, social justice, ethics and all fields and process of human evolution.

 

Islam in general and, worse, political Islam in particular can never be in harmony with the evolution of human species. People under Islamic domination are the prisoners, trapped in the dark era of terror until the unsupported preys to Allah's clutches. Under such circumstances, the subjects have no motivation to evolve, at best they have to beg and clamor so that their sinister does not worsen.

 

During the 1979 anti-Shah revolution, people were looking for a quick demise of the Shah’s dictatorship at any price. They were not aware of a totalitarian state, which could flick out of Islam -- a bitter ignorance for which Iranians are today paying a colossal price.

 

The politicised Islam under the Mullahs’ regime has since 1979 committed the most hideous crimes since the first invasion of Islam on Iran in the seventh century. On its black records, one routinely sees torture, rape before execution, application of Sharia by stoning, amputation, lashes, state terrorism (chained killings, kidnappings, mass killings in / out of the country) -- all these crimes are well-documented.

 

Some non-Semitic religions like Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucius, Baha’i or nature religions in some African tribes reflect their direct cultures and are the outcome of their daily lives, wishes, and ideals. For them, the religion is tending towards the emergence of their needs and conventional norms. They qualify their faith as a source of morality, what consists in acting and living in such a way. They understand their human conditions because faith / religion suggest a supreme being(s), and a pathway to an ideal life here and after. Not all these aspects of these religions can objectively explain Iranians’ belief in Islam. We see Islam as a false patch imposed with sword on our culture since 1400 years ago. However, little Iranian intellectuals have criticised Islam and its background because of fear. From 1400 years ago on, the Muslim men of sword prohibited such contemplation. 

  

Islam cannot accept the evolution because it considers itself as the only valid and devine pattern to guide humanity for all time. The 1400-year-old imposed Islam demands omnipresent role in daily attitudes of Iranians whose ancestors were once forced to believe in it and today are forced or mesmerised to follow. Islam with its dictates-teachings on murder, rape, torture, enslavement, humiliation, misogyny is today a legacy of its prophet Muhammad left for the Islamic regime in Iran. All these immoral commands of 1400-old-religion show deteriorations, but contain no impulse for evolution. Little scientific progress in the Golden Age of Islamic Caliphates was not because of such impulses, but despite of Islam. Indeed the Islamic rough credo constrained the process of a normal evolution.

 

As an omnipresent and omniscient doctrine, Islam has continued to remain for many centuries as a pivot character formation, mindset and moral pattern of our mesmerised Muslims with no any impetus for their evolution. The entire evolution in programming causes and effects have strategies of temporal changes and achievements, what actually is as un-Islamic for the two following reasons:

 

1- feeling that a change is highly appropriate for each phenomenon, including people’s thoughts, feelings, and ethics seem to discord major teaching of Islam, which by contrast is a social order promoted by violence and based on submissiveness of the Muslim community, "Omma".

2- Islam opposes any reform and inner evolution of its limited field.

 

Concretely said, Islam is against formation of institutionalised ethics in a level of the international institutions like the Human Rights Organisation, Amnesty International, and The Hague Court. Such modern institutions bear modern ethics protecting human interests. These jeopardise the Islamic domination over the community. Iran is not the only country with a crisis of totalitarian regimes, but the only one with a totalitarian regime that is also characterised as a force of Islamic occupier. Iranians need more international support than other Arabic oppressed nations because Iranians do not fight against their corrupt despots, but an Islamic occupier force.

  

We know that, unfortunately, a number of factors stand over humanitarian factors. Historically meant, the “civilised” world is not that civilised and so evolved to avoid sacrificing its humanitarian values for the lucrative interests, though our species could only survive if it is adaptive to the basic humanitarian values. Despite the fact that in a clash with religious domination, the West created their humanitarian institutions, it ignores now the plague of political Islam. Independently from its attitude, western values today trigger our integration into international community and make us more vigilant to protect ourselves. The more isolated we are, the more we can be trampled by the aggressors of both inside or outside.

  

My issue is that Islam and evolution are like fire and water, two complete opposites. I do not mean that Islam can eternally stop the motion of evolution, but can disturb, slow down and charge it with huge human casualties. I am not evoking the clashes between creationism and evolutionism because it does not help Iranians. What seems to me important is the fact that all religions adapted their credo based on the mindset of people. These are more or less formed by a historical process in interaction of people’s cultures and psychological needs, let alone the fact that none of them proves a source of divinity and all of them have been historically product of human mind.

 

 Those old cultures which shaped up religions are not representative today, therefore all Semitic religions, expect Islam, had to be reformed and updated. Because of its multifaceted nature of a totalitarian social order, Islam cannot be reformed; otherwise it loses all its divine sense. It is incompatible to our today's criteria and the ethics we need, especially for conscious Iranians who feel themselves today as the 1400-year-old hostages of their captor, Islam. Islam represents today for an increasing majority of Iranians the Islamic regime.

 

 With the advent of the Islamic regime, the people of Iran feel themselves the prisoners of a diabolical domination, ghastly memories of the past 1400 years are gathered in an emotion of increasing hate towards Islam. The bestial countenances of the 1400-old crimes, enslaving, looting, raping, humiliating of Iranian people are all represented by and in the attitudes of the Islamic regime.

Zendanian An injury to one is an injury to all.

Islam has damaged Iranian society greatly and contributed to an Iranian "arrested development," a mal-development, in at least three instances:
- the original invasion,
- Safavieh Dynasty and Shiafication of Iran
- Currently.

But Islam hasn't been the only contributing factor to this historical mal development: we've also had Mongols, and queer Macedonians before them, and a few other external interventions.
Of course for some students of Iranian history, the major reason for lack of development in Iran has been inability of Iranian markets and capitalist production to properly develop and establish themselves. Some facts in our economy affirms this reason.
To posit all problems of a nation to one cause could be described as reductionism.
Hypothetically speaking in a proper capitalist setting Islam could be very secular, flexible and profitable, Turkey's assent could be an example of such Islam.
Our fight with IR is against a theocracy. A religious state that is part Spanish Inquisition, and part Nazi Germany; yet all so Persian and Shia, in the early 21st century.
Down with the Islamic Republic of Iran.

So what about the "Real Islam." Real Islam is even worse than this slightly more evolved form. To find what Real Islam is you need to talk to some uneducated crazy Saudi Wahabis.

Emancipate yourself from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our mind.

Islam impedes progress. It is not the only reason for our country's stagnation but it is definitely up there. When we learn to replace superstition with reason only then can we witness an Iranian renaissance.

"Islam in general and, worse, political Islam in particular can never be in harmony with the evolution of human species.". Hearing "always" and "never" is a red flag as it is often a far too extreme and inaccurate stance that ignores the realm of possibilities or worse yet, the truth.

choghok Your enemie's enemy is necessarily not a friend.

I find this kind of debate pretty classic loser mentality that people from Middle East is great at. It is never our fault. If it is not US fault, then it is English, if not then it is Israel, if not then it is ... Because the fault is never ours. Unfortunately this loser mentality is the thing keeping us down. If you study history you see that until Shah Abbas Iran was a big power. After that because our rulers and statesmen bad decisions we became a pawn and not a player in the world. People in Iran hail the big kings who won and ravaged other countries. But when a king lost the war or country lost its power then others are bad.

Even after all they have learned in the past 34 years, majority of Iranians still call themselves muslims. They will not dare to find some of the sources of their dysfunction in their superstitions. Although simply blaming Arab Muslim invasion as the cause of all of our current problems is ignorant, it is great for Iranians to begin to recognize the evils of religion and Ideology. Only then we have hopes to move in a direction away from savagery of the past and evolve as humans.

True, I deliberately did not mention the word "Arab" in my article; in order avoid any racial nuances. I emphasised the word Islam and “early Muslim invaders, not Arabs. We should target the primitive cult, not Arabs or Muslims, who might be the victims of it too.

What a nice simple and comforting view of the world. The God in the sky created us is watching after us and one day if you follow him he will give you a mansion in the sky full of horny hot virgins that despite their lack of experience will give you the best experience of your life (after death).
Great simple explanation of the world and great for the simple minded.

Islam IS THE EVOLUTION OF MANKIND. Iranians who embraced Islam after the injustices of the Zaratushti mullahs evolved in every field of science and literature. The was an explosion of progress in arts, literature, sciences and atrecrafts.
You brother Jahanshah owe your evolution to the Islamic heritage of your country.

This is excellent article by divaneh. MUST READ. Please read all the ensuing commentaries; educational and insightful.

By Divaneh:


دین ستیزی یعنی روشنگری

این هم دردی است که گاه افراد روشنفکر بیان می کنند که ما دین ستیز نیستیم و به عقاید مردم کاری نداریم. چرا نیستید؟ مگر دین ستیزی چیست به جز روشنگری؟ دین ستیزی و مومن ستیزی دو مقوله متقاوت است. یکی روشنگری است و دیگری نفرت پراکنی. دین ستیزی مبارک است و مومن ستیزی منحوس. دین ستیزی را باید تشویق نمود و با مومن ستیزی باید مبارزه نمود. دین ستیزی را روشنفکر می نماید و مومن ستیزی را متعصبی دیگر.

اسلام ستیزی و مسلم ستیزی دو امر متفاوت است و نباید یکی شمرده شود. اسلام ستیزی مبارزه با جهل و آئینی بدوی و تفوق جو است. مسلم ستیزی این است که برای مثال گروهی تند رو در امریکا به نفرت پراکنی در مورد مسلمانها بپردازند و خشونت بر علیه آنها را ترویج بدهند. اسلام ستیز در صدد کمک به مسلم و رهائی او از قید و بند جهالت است و مسلم ستیز به دنبال آزار نمودن ایشان. این دو بسیار متفاوتند و یکی دانستن آنها ترفند روحانیت برای نا آگاه نگاه داشتن توده است.

Mohammed is a false prophet. An agent of evil, look at all the destruction this so called peaceful religion has wrecked. Thousands of innocent lives destroyed all in the name of some jihad. What part, tell me what role did these innocent civilians play in this war except to be made into some public show as they were brutally massacred by their oppressors. I say it now and I say it again, Mohammed is a FALSE PROPHET, and agent of evil and that born from hell itself. I pray who have lost their way to his deluded sense of "peace". Peace be with them, and may God watch over us and keep us safe from the evils of Islam's teachings. If this makes me an infidel then I am proud to be one.

Find out the common denominator of backwardness in the Islamic world. No improvement is steady possible there. The bigger, or influential, this denominator is, the more destructive it inhibits the progress. See the societies where Islam is more embodied and their effected course of progress today.
In extreme cases, most people remain backward and uneducated. It would be wrong to dismiss the importance of this religious factor. Let's realise and point out the factor of sterility in the economic, democracy, and individual freedom. The statistics speak out; the Islamised societies stand alone in a sea of illiteracy, obscurantism, despotism and economic backwardness.
