Islam -- Hotbed of Chimp-Think
Introduction to Islamo-Chimp Theory
by Igor Slamoff
This new approach to analyzing Islam is neither satire not provocation. Instead, it is a seriously meant scientific hypothesis based on sober observation of actual social phenomena and historical events recorded by trained scholars. I first conceived the hypothesis of a partial analogy between Moslem and chimpanzee societies while reading scientific works on chimpanzee behaviour written by mainstream anthropologists.
Analogies between human and chimpanzee behaviour are a well-established and uncontroversial methodological tool in the social sciences. The only specific case of such use that I know of is the use of chimpanzee behaviour models to analyze the behaviour of human male youth gangs and their members.
Very clear similarities have been demonstrated between the behaviour of chimpanzees and that of members of human youth gangs.
Consequently hypothesising analogies between chimpanzee society and human social groups is methodologically unobjectionable and should under no circumstances be misinterpreted as derogatory toward the human social groups selected for comparison.
Moreover, it should be perfectly clear that this methodology has nothing to do with comparative human genetics and is consequently incapable of yielding any conclusions regarding any hypothetical or actual biological differences or resemblances among different human groups. The comparison is solely between behaviour of human youth gangs and that of bands of chimpanzees.
Statement of the hypothesis
On the basis of observation of the empirical evidence at my disposal I concluded that those behaviour patterns of human youth gangs that resemble certain chimpanzee behaviour patterns are likewise prominently displayed by many Mohammedans and by various subgroups of Mohammedan societies. .
The nexus is provided by the fact that during a crucial formative stage of Islam –- namely immediately after the hijra from Mecca to Madeenah -- all able-bodied Muslim males were employed full-time as bandits, plundering passing caravans, killing the men and enslaving the women and children, in accordance with immemorial tribal traditions reaching back to the proto-Semites. As a matter of fact in classical Arabic there was no word for “male slave”.
Although I’m hazy on the essential differences between a youth gang and a band of robbers, I suspect that there is considerable overlap. That, of course would have to be decided by specialists in the field.
I hypothesise that Mohammedan societies tend to reward behaviour resembling chimpanzee behaviour and, as a corollary, that they tend to punish behaviour that diverges from chimpanzee behaviour. This opens the door to the more far-reaching hypothesis that by preserving, through its social institutions, behaviour patterns characteristic of the lower primates, the Mohammedan cult constitutes an obstacle to human development.
If that hypothesis is confirmed by the evidence, the ensuing finding would constitute a grave indictment of the Mohammedan cult and would undoubtedly provide arguments in favour of its speedy dissolution and/or eradication. The legal grounds would likely be a pattern -- seemingly immanent to Mohammedanism -- of systematic disregard for human rights on a massive scale.
A circumstance that lends credence to this notion is that Mohammedans form the only religious group that has rejected en bloc the concept of human rights as established by the UN in its Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The so-called “islamic human rights" proclaimed in the Cairo Declaration of 1990 are not only extremely restricted in scope, but are not even true rights at all, since under articles 23 and 24 of the Declaration, every single one of them depends for its validity on not breaching sharia law. Sharia law, for its part, is nowhere codified in a binding manner. Accordingly all the so-called “rights” granted by the Cairo Declaration can be brushed aside at any time by a vague reference to an undefined, controversial and amorphous body of rules established higgledy-piggledy over many centuries, and almost none of which are universally accepted.
Status of research project
Since I have no training in the field of anthropology, others must do the required research. I will attempt to fund some preliminary work relying on the meagre resources at my disposal.
Although the hypothesis has not been proven, or even for that matter formally stated, I am personally persuaded that it is sound. This is because the hypothesis was so strongly suggested by perusal of high-quality and randomly gathered data. Furthermore I can think of no cogent methodological argument that would tend to contradict or invalidate it
Accordingly I shall henceforth tentatively consider the hypothesis to be a reliable guide to reality, until it is refuted or rendered implausible by subsequent scientific research.
A brief account of the curious resemblances I noted between chimpanzee and Mohammedan behaviours, and of the books where I found out about them, is provided in my open letter "Innocence of Gangstapimps” recently published on my Slaughterfaith blog.
