Just Read an English Translation of the Qur'an

Seeking to learn more about other peoples and other societies I ended up reading a translation of the Qur'an into English by M. H. Shakir wishing to read it for myself and (regardless of how one happens to view the Islamic religion) to try to learn how the Islamic religion emerged as a major religion of the world. Also considering that so many people all over the world have happened to have read this book over the centuries I wished to read what they had read. I have now finished reading it.

One very negative aspect of Armstrongism is that we are often taught to simply accept what we are told by the ministers in the Armstrongite organizations. By being told that we were given the true version of Christianity we were encourage to just believe what we were told by those who led us in the various Armstrongite organizations. But present reality and history of the past is far more complicated than whatever simplistic stories the Armstrongite 1% wish to foist upon lay members. We need to be unafraid of dealing with the wonderfully complicated histories and social situations that form our society instead of retreating to accept simple "black and white" fables taught by the Armstrongite 1%.
