The Kaaba

In our recent post Freedom from religion (October 6,  2014), we mentioned that a rock could be an object of worship.

There was an ancient tradition in Arabia of  anointing and circumambulating stones as a form of worship. Many of the worshipped stones were meteorites. As they came “from the heavens” they were thought to be sent by a god and to contain divine powers. One such stone, long since fragmented, is the one enshrined at Mecca, that Muslims hold sacred and circumambulate.

From Wikipedia:

The Black Stone (Arabic: الحجر الأسودal-Ḥajar al-Aswad) is the eastern cornerstone of the Kaaba, the ancient stone building toward which Muslims pray, in the center of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. It is revered by Muslims as an Islamic relic which, according to Muslim tradition, dates back to the time of Adam and Eve.

The stone was venerated at the Kaaba in pre-Islamic pagan times. According to Islamic tradition, it was set intact into the Kaaba’s wall by the Islamic prophet Muhammad in the year 605 A.D., five years before his first revelation. Since then it has been broken into a number of fragments and is now cemented into a silver frame in the side of the Kaaba. Its physical appearance is that of a fragmented dark rock, polished smooth by the hands of millions of pilgrims. Islamic tradition holds that it fell from Heaven to show Adam and Eve where to build an altar. Although it has often been described as a meteorite, this hypothesis is now uncertain.

Muslim pilgrims circle the Kaaba as part of the tawaf ritual of the hajj. Many of them try, if possible, to stop and kiss the Black Stone, emulating the kiss that Islamic tradition records that it received from Muhammad. If they cannot reach it, they point to it on each of their seven circuits around the Kaaba.

The broken stone has no value in itself; not as a gem, not as a meteorite sample, and not as a relic of the past. It is not an artifact that could reveal information about ancient civilizations. It is not unique. It is endowed with value only by tradition and superstition.

It could, however, be of enormous importance to the world. The destruction of it – by pulverizing it so completely that no trace of it remains – could be hugely beneficial.

We quote from: Hitler, Stalin, Muhammad: Who ranks as the most evil human ever? by Dov Ivry (a reader of this website) –

Whether what remains on display at Mecca today is the original meteorite is open to question because there are only fragments in a reconstructed edifice. [However,] the remembrance of a stone falling from the sky rings true. … They keep changing the label on the meteorite god. Today it is called Allah. …

Islam, as the worship of the pet rock is known, is always vulnerable to a sudden disappearance from the planet if [the Black Stone] were ever pulverized into powder and the powder scattered over the Pacific Ocean. An atomic bomb might produce that powder at some point. If so, Islam would vanish within a few generations.

If that outcome really is a strong probability, then the sooner the Kaaba is bombed the better (obviously at a time when there are no pilgrims there). Conventional bombs would do. It could be the quickest way of ending the jihad, the Islamic State, and the conflict between Islamic sects, and above all its disappearance might free the world of at least one ancient and persistent religion – the worst of them all: Islam.

The Black Stone 

Along with “The UN must be destroyed!”, “Bomb the Kaaba!” takes its place as a slogan of ours.

    That would be quite worrying because, no doubt they would experience an evolution of the religion when faced with extinction. Thinking about it, they would probably reinforce the other monotheistic portion of their faith, keeping all the murderous and insightful lies, which make them like wild beasts, rampaging around in the earth. They would probably amass themselves to caliph here on earth, and begin to worship him as if he was their stone, making for themselves a god on earth. I don’t think it would be as simple as dropping a bomb on them, they need to be judged by G-d’s chosen people.

    • Glad you agree with us, digitariaification, that the Mohammadans are murderous and lying. Their ideology requires it of them.

      By “G-ds’ chosen people” you can only mean the Jews. I think the Jews judge them correctly as murderous and lying.

      But in our view G-d as you call him is no less absurd an invention than Allah. Not as murderous these days, but still as absurd.

    Good article Jillian, but initially and originally, the “Kaaba” was built by the Polytheist Pagan-Arabs thousands of years ago in Greater Arabia (current day Saudi Arabia), but during the course of the early half of the 7th century, when Islam was being formed and created by taking passages and doctrines from Christianity and Judaism, the Arab-Muslims stole the Kaaba from the Polytheist-Arabs by killing them and brainwashing them to accept Islam, and so forth.

    • Sean R:
      We do quote: “The stone was venerated at the Kaaba in pre-Islamic pagan times.”

      But we are nevertheless grateful for your comment, for the extended information you have given us, and for your kind compliment.

    Great idea! But why not bomb it while the big-wigs of Islam are all there worshipping it and “kill two birds with one stone”, so to speak?
    I don’t know if that would cause Islam to disappear, though. People backwards enough to worship a stone, and ignorant enough to obey the commands of the most obvious lying charlatan in history will only need to hear another lie from their current lying charlatans to avert that outcome.
