Default Eerie...

Just got sent this in e-mail:
Quote:
This is something to think about!
Since America is typically represented by an eagle.
Saddam should have read up on his Muslim passages...
The following verse is from the Quran, (the Islamic Bible)

Quran (9:11) -- For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken a fearsome Eagle. The wrath of the Eagle would be felt throughout the lands of Allah and lo, while some of the people trembled in despair still more rejoiced; for the wrath of the Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah; and there was peace.

Note the verse number!

Screaming Pickle Investigates

Our crack team of scientists searched multiple online databases which contain the Quran in it'* entirety.

The word "eagle" does not appear anywhere in the Quran, the Koran or even the Quarahnne

Our scientists then went to google.com and typed in "online quran" to locate an online copy of the book. Here is the actual Chapter 9, verse 11 of the Quran

009.011

YUSUFALI: But (even so), if they repent, establish regular prayers, and practice regular charity,- they are your brethren in Faith: (thus) do We explain the Signs in detail, for those who understand.

PICKTHAL: But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then are they your brethren in religion. We detail Our revelations for a people who have knowledge.

SHAKIR: But if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, they are your brethren in faith; and We make the communications clear for a people who know.

Screaming Pickle Uncovers

This email is actually complete and total rock bottom crap.
