Sure, the koran says we're deaf and blind and the bible calls us fools in Psalms.  What I suspect was going on in both cases is preemptive dismissal of any kind of criticism.  Whoever wrote both books KNEW such examination was coming and wanted to erect a defense against it.  The problem once again is that both statements are assertions without proof, and a friend of ours had something to say about such statements:

What can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.

Warren, they don't see through it because they've been taught not to think critically, not to question, not to think for themselves.  Sure, we see the bible and the quran as bad jokes because we DO bother to think about what is said in them.

You know that and I know that.  Sadly, they don't.

"Perfect" as opposed to what? I am still dumbfounded why so many people can't see through this. Not exactly award winning literature and it reads like something that was written by a committee and translated over and over. Like the Peter Sellers movie, being there. Everyone thought his ramblings were deep and important, until they finally realized that they were nonsense, I hope one day the bibel is dethroned too.
