Book Review: Moon-o-theism, Chapter 8

Remember how I complained in my review of the previous chapter that it needed to be vastly expanded or omitted? I found the rest of the chapter here. It needs to be moved back into the last chapter.

It's hard to advise this in a chapter that finished up with footnote 3507, but this book also needs more cross-references. So many topics are addressed in so many places that it continues to be rather repetitive.

There also needs to be a chapter specifically devoted to the fertility religions which Islam incorporated, and their influence today. That topic is scattered throughout the book, and it should really be brought together in one area.

I really liked the distinction he made early in the chapter between Christians and Muslims. A Christian is a child of God. A Muslim is a subject of Allah. If everything else was identical except this point, you could say without a shadow of a doubt that the God of the Bible is not the god of the Koran. That thought alone is enough to make reading the chapter worthwhile.
