the quran broadens your mind.think outside the box
35 years ago I was working in a situation where I'd eat breakfast at a pancake house every morning. I had decided to read the Koran and had gotten a copy. So I read some every morning at breakfast.
And, yeah, I had bacon with my eggs while reading it.
As I finished up one morning I rose saying to the waitress, "Nothing like a hellfire sermon from Mohammed to start the day."
"I prefer orange juice," she answered.
I found one interesting insight in it about charity. I found a reference to Yug Sothoth, one of the Great Old Ones of H.P.Lovecraft's Chthulhu Mythos. Other than that I found it kind of boring. The Bible had better story tellers, better aphorisms, etc, generally speaking. I must admit I did like that part about the angels using comets or meteors as weapons to make demon spies who are trying to eavesdrop back off. I liked the part about Solomon's court where some of the counselors are enslaved devils and one of them transported the Queen of Sheba's throne thru an underground tunnel to surprise her when she got there. So it wasn't all a loss.
Since 'tis the season to be jolly I'll mention that Santa Claus is in the Koran. That is, there is a Christian myth that one of the miracles of St. Nicholas was that he could speak Greek the day he was born. Mohammed, garbling stuff as he usually did, attributed that miracle to Jesus.
So does that fit the definition of broadening my thinking?
