Islam group: Trip to Mars is suicide and forbidden, jihad attacks are ok

An Islamic religious group which ruled that travel on a one-way trip to Mars is prohibited by Islam because it is equal to committing suicide is under attack and asked to denounce suicide attacks by jihadists.

The General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowment’s fatwa committee ruled that joining the Mars One mission to colonize Mars is prohibited under Islamic law.

“Such a one-way journey poses a real risk to life, and that can never be justified in Islam,” the committee said according to the English-language Khaleej Times. “There is a possibility that an individual who travels to planet Mars may not be able to remain alive there, and is more vulnerable to death.”

“Protecting life against all possible dangers and keeping it safe is an issue agreed upon by all religions and is clearly stipulated in verse 4/29 of the Holy Quran: Do not kill yourselves or one another. Indeed, Allah is to you ever Merciful,” the committee said in its fatwa.

Sheikh Mohammed Yusuf, Imam of the Amena mosque, said: “Man’s life is not his or her own property; it is God’s creation, and therefore suicide is prohibited in all religions, and of course by law.”

Responses were swiftly posted from those calling hypocrisy on the ruling, noting past religious stamps of approval of suicide bombings.

“Muslim clerics finally forbid suicide missions but only on Mars,” read a headline in the Jewish Press.

“Does that mean that the Quran forbids Muslims to be suicide bombers? After all, the professor [on the fatwa committee] did say that the Muslim holy book says one should not kill himself,” wrote the Jewish Press. “Where were these guys when Palestinian Authority terrorists were blowing up, and still are trying to blow up Jews, and Hezbollah terrorists were blowing up and still are blowing up Sunni Muslims? Where were these leading religious figures on Sept. 10, 2011, or even the day after 9/11?”

  1. Friday Jihad round up | The Prussian says:

    […] attacks are okay on those trying to get to Mars.  Look, we’re just trying to get away from you […]

  2. bill says:

    F ¥ ck off, islam

  3. john doe says:

    good, looks like we wont have to worry about any suicide attacks on mars. we midas well all move there and they can stay on earth and blow each other up.

  4. Recyclus says:

    This is coming from the same people who still think the earth is flat and who regularly attack and kill medics issuing polio vaccines to children. Fűck off, Islam.

    ANY LIFE ON MARS CAME FROM EARTH

    In the Earth’s past there was powerful volcanic activity which could have easily spewed dirt and rocks containing microbes into outer space which not only could have eventually reached Mars but also ended up traveling in orbit through space that we now know as meteors, comets, and asteroids. A Newsweek article of September 21, 1998, p.12 mentions the high possibility of Earth life on Mars. “We think there’s about 7 million tons of earth soil sitting on Mars”, says scientist and evolutionist Kenneth Nealson. “You have to consider the possibility that if we find life on Mars, it could have come from the Earth” [Weingarten, T., Newsweek, September 21, 1998, p.12].

    HAVING THE RIGHT CONDITIONS AND RAW MATERIALS FOR LIFE doesn’t mean that life can originate by chance.

    Proteins can’t come into existence unless there’s life first! Miller, in his famous experiment in 1953, showed that individual amino acids (the building blocks of life) could come into existence by chance. But, it’s not enough just to have amino acids. The various amino acids that make-up life must link together in a precise sequence, just like the letters in a sentence, to form functioning protein molecules. If they’re not in the right sequence the protein molecules won’t work. It has never been shown that various amino acids can bind together into a sequence by chance to form protein molecules. Even the simplest cell is made up of many millions of various protein molecules.

    The probability of just an average size protein molecule arising by chance is 10 to the 65th power. Mathematicians have said any event in the universe with odds of 10 to 50th power or greater is impossible! The late great British scientist Sir Frederick Hoyle calculated that the odds of even the simplest cell coming into existence by chance is 10 to the 40,000th power! How large is this? Consider that the total number of atoms in our universe is 10 to the 23rd power.

    Also, what many don’t realize is that Miller had a laboratory apparatus that shielded and protected the individual amino acids the moment they were formed, otherwise the amino acids would have quickly disintegrated and been destroyed in the mix of random energy and forces involved in Miller’s experiment.

    There is no innate chemical tendency for the various amino acids to bond with one another in a sequence. Any one amino acid can just as easily bond with any other. The only reason at all for why the various amino acids bond with one another in a precise sequence in the cells of our bodies is because they’re directed to do so by an already existing sequence of molecules found in our genetic code.

    Of course, once you have a complete and living cell then the genetic code and
    biological machinery exist to direct the formation of more cells, but how could life or the cell have naturally originated when no directing code and mechanisms existed in nature? Read my Internet article: HOW FORENSIC SCIENCE REFUTES ATHEISM.

    A partially evolved cell would quickly disintegrate under the effects of random forces of the environment, especially without the protection of a complete and fully functioning cell membrane. A partially evolved cell cannot wait millions of years for chance to make it complete and living! In fact, it couldn’t have even
    reached the partially evolved state.

    What a bunch of idiots…. I wonder when they will ban driving, because theres an elevated risk of death while operating a car. If they did, I wouldnt be suprised if they made en exception for when the car was packed with explosives.
