** It's also often said that the serpent had legs before God curses it for tricking Adam and Eve. but the text only state that afterwards he his cursed to crawl on his belly. Some Modern Interpreters hypothesize that he in fact had WINGS before the curse, and wash similar to a Seraph. Perhaps he was a chinese dragon?

* The Bible never says "all sins are equal". Although it says all sins lead to death, the Bible is clear that there are different levels of sin. John 19:11 "Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin." Also made apparent by the existence of an unpardonable sin (Mat 12:31).

* The phrase "Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime" and its variants are often mistakenly attributed to the Bible.

** Matthew 5:28 - "But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart." Whoever looks upon a woman with lust has committed adultery against his own wife. Pretty irrelevant to masturbation in most interpretations.

Whoever looks upon a woman with lust has committed adultery against his own wife. Pretty irrelevant to masturbation in most interpretations. However, this only limits to masturbation ''without'' a thought of looking on a woman and lusting after her.

* Nowhere in Literature/TheQuran does it state that martyrs will get 72 virgins. The concept actually comes from a ''Hadith'' (a story concerning the life of Muhammad), this particular hadith is not considered credible by almost all Muslims. Furthermore, the Hadith does not mention that martyrs get 72 virgins, it says that ''everyone'' in paradise will be served by 72 houri (angelic servants).
** The Qur'an also teaches that women have souls and will go to paradise. Also that they should be educated. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women_in_Islam And a lot of other stuff.]]
*** Suffice it to say that a lot of the maltreatment women get at the hands of "Islam" is local custom that has been justified by [[TwistingTheWords taking bits of the Qur'an and flimsy pieces of Hadith]] (the words of UsefulNotes/TheProphetMuhammad, which are extremely persuasive but not absolute authority on Islamic law; moreover, both traditional and modern scholarship have cast doubt on the authenticity of some reported statements)[[note]]For instance, a few feminist Muslim writers have investigated the Hadiths reported by Abu Huraira regarding women, accusing him of being less reliable than traditional Sunni sources claim, a self-promoter, and a misogynist to boot ("Abu Huraira"--[[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname really a nickname]]--means "the guy with the kitten," as he had a cat as a kid, which for some reason he found embarrassingly effeminate--hence the misogyny). The Shia for their part have never trusted him either, as not only is he not part of the Prophet's family (the Shia traditionally regard Hadith not related by the Prophet's House to be suspect at best), he was staunchly opposed to the Shia cause from the beginning.[[/note]] over the centuries.
** In Afghanistan, it is widely believed that that the Quran definitely says somewhere that men can treat women as horribly as they like. It doesn't help that most of the country's population is illiterate and thus can't actually read the Quran. Conservative mullahs have been known to attribute Pashtun proverbs like "[[StayInTheKitchen a woman’s place is in the home or in the grave]]" to the Quran, in which they don't appear.

** On that same subject, nowhere does the Bible say, “It is better to cast your seed in the belly of a whore than spill it on the ground.” This is most likely ascertained from both the account of Onan and the subsequent intimate encounter of Judah with his daughter-in-law Tamar, who only ''disguised herself as a harlot'' so that she could conceive seed when Judah held back his remaining son Shelah from marrying her.
