Nowhere in the Koran does it say that martyrs will be given 72 virgins in the afterlife. Nor is the Rapture mentioned anywhere in the Christian Bible. The rapture was invented by a preacher in the 19th century, and just became popularized by the nature of Memes* and how they are spread. Just like with fundamentalist Christians, some Muslims have found a way to mistranslate and even invent content for their own religious zealotry.
There are so many flaws in the logic, it’s hard to know where to begin, so I’ll just say this:
That aside, it is obvious that these distortions, and often the religion itself is predicated on catering to men and their particular interests. What about the Muslim women? do they get 72 MALE virgins? (ridiculous, as we know there are none left. )
Do Muslim women get to go to “heaven” at all? Guess not. Can anyone say misogyny?
Even though this is quintessential absurdity and ignorance that has grown into a threat to all of us, and indeed to the very existence of life on this planet, I entreat you to consider my own solution.
Someone please provide 72 virgins right now.
Then they will have their reward without dying and without killing others in the process.
*Meme–As defined by Richard Dawkins in The Selfish Gene (1976): “a unit of cultural transmission, or a unit of imitation.” “Examples of memes are tunes, ideas, catch-phrases, clothes fashions, ways of making pots or of building arches. Just as genes propagate themselves in the gene pool by leaping from body to body via sperms or eggs, so memes propagate themselves in the meme pool by leaping from brain to brain via a process which, in the broad sense, can be called imitation.”
