The Muhammad Code
By

Rating
Over a thousand years ago, Islam toppled superpowers Rome and Persia, then took over two-thirds of the inhabited world. Militant Muslims believe that Islam is on the brink of doing it again. The Muhammad Code lays bare the origins of this belief. Many excuse Islamic violence as a legitimate reaction to Western imperialism. They blame wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the establishment of Israel. But Jihad was invented in 624 AD by the only prophet ever to call himself 'The Prophet of War'. And that prophet was not responding to legitimate grievances, but an ambition for world conquest.

About the Author

Howard Bloom has written six books, and articles for The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Wired, Knight-Ridder Financial News Service, the Village Voice, Cosmopolitan Magazine, and the Scientific American's scientificamerican.com. ("Bloom's arguments will rock your world" says Barbara Ehrenreich. Bloom appears regularly on Saudi Arabia's KSA2-TV, Ekhbariya TV, and on Iran's global English language Press-TV. He has also debated with senior officials from Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood and Gaza's Hamas on Iran's Alalam TV. Bloom's book Global Brain was the subject of an Office of the Secretary of Defense symposium with participants from the Energy Department, DARPA, IBM, and MIT. Additionally, the New York Military Affairs Symposium tapped Bloom to give a 1,382-year history of jihad. Bloom also helped launch Farm Aid and create Amnesty International's American presence. He has worked with the United Negro College Fund, the National Black United Fund, and the NAACP. Bloom is a visiting scholar at NYU, a core faculty member at The Graduate Institute in Meriden, Connecticut, and the author of The Lucifer Principle: A Scientific Expedition Into the Forces of History, Global Brain: The Evolution of Mass Mind From The Big Bang to the 21st Century, The Genius of the Beast: A Radical Re-Vision of Capitalism, and The God Problem: How A Godless Cosmos Creates. Bloom has lectured at Yale, Stanford, and Columbia University's Department of Neuroscience. He has published on theoretical physics, cosmology, and evolutionary biology. His scientific work has appeared in: arxiv.org, a leading site of advanced theoretical physics and math. Bloom co-founded the Space Development Steering Committee, a group that includes astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Edgar Mitchell, and members from the National Science Foundation, NASA, and the National Space Society. He has appeared on the Today Show, CBS Morning News, ABC News Overnight, CNN, and 129 times on Clear Channel's Coast to Coast AM. Britain's Channel 4 TV says that Bloom is "next in a lineage of seminal thinkers that includes Newton, Darwin, Einstein, [and] Freud." Gear Magazine adds that Bloom is "the next Stephen Hawking." And Buckminster Fuller's archivist, Bonnie DeVarco, explains that Bloom is, "The Buckminster Fuller and Arthur C. Clarke of the new millennium." "But," as Gear points out, "he's not just interested in science. He's interested in the human soul." Bloom has studied Islam for over 55 years. Concludes Marcel Roele--science writer for Holland's Algemeen Dagblad, Intermediair, and HP/De Tijd: Bloom's probably the only person alive today who can make original and insightful comments on current political developments in the US, Far East or Middle East with the benefit of knowledge of the evolution of the universe in the past 13 billion years.

Reviews

"I'm racing through The Muhammad Code, like a Formula One racer is pushing me along. Brilliant. Forceful... and something everyone must read." Michael Mendizza, co-author Always Awakening, Buddha's Realization--Krishnamurti's Insight--Howard Bloom "The Muhammad Code is keeping me up at night. It's a terrifying book--like a horror novel. It's the best book I've read on Islam...and the most elegantly written." David Swindle, PJ Media Quotes for The God Problem, another Howard Bloom title: "Enthralling. Astonishing. Written with the panache of the Great Blondin turning somersaults on the rope above Niagara. Profound, extraordinarily eclectic, and crazy. The most exciting cliffhanger of a book I can remember reading." --James Burke, creator and host of seven BBC TV series, including Connections "Bloody hell...What a truly extraordinary book. I'm gob-smacked." --Francis Pryor, President of the Council for British Archaeology, author, Britain BC "Truly awesome. Terrific." --Dudley Herschbach, Harvard U, 1986 Nobel Prize in Chemistry "Deep, provocative, spectacularly well written...great." --Robert Sapolsky, Stanford U, MacArthur Genius Award winner "Strong...like a STEAM ROLLER...impressive...great." --Richard Foreman, founder Ontological-Hysteric Theater, MacArthur Genius Award-Winner "Mind-bending." --Charles Siebert, contributing writer, New York Times Sunday Magazine "Ebullient, enthralling." -- Alex Wright, Director of User Experience and Product Research, New York Times, author, Glut: Mastering Information Through the Ages "A great book. I raced to finish it and enjoyed every page of the way. For those of us who do not invoke a god(s) to explain things, there is a challenge - where did the complexity of the physical and natural world come from? How can we make sense of order without a blueprint or blueprint maker? This deep, provocative, spectacularly well written book provides some answers. It both preaches to the choir and provides a powerful tool for increasing the size of the choir. A wonderful book." -- Robert Sapolsky, Stanford U, MacArthur Genius Award winner, author, Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers "I have just come out from the giddy ride through things of the mind and mathematics that is The God Problem. Bloom takes us on a magic carpet ride of ideas about: well, about everything. And it turns out that everything we knew about everything is probably wrong. Howard Bloom is the absolute master polymath and his book is an intellectual cave of wonders made more wonderful by the tales of the lives of the people behind the ideas. Don't start this book late at night, for it will banish sleep." --Robin Fox, Rutgers University, author, The Tribal Imagination, former director of research for the H. F. Guggenheim Foundation "A must read for those wanting great literature delving into the greatest mysteries." --Edgar Mitchell, sixth astronaut on the moon. "Terrific. I am stupefied by the amount of work Bloom has put in. Bloom is an authentic genius." --Jean Paul Baquiast Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Paris "A profound and extraordinary look into the history of human thought." --Yuri Ozhigov, Chair of Quantum Informatics, Moscow State University "The Muhammad Code is keeping me up at night.
