Morey's Deceptive Methods

A Christian acquaintance proudly handed me a copy of a book entitled The Moon-god Allah in the Archeology of the Middle East by Dr. Robert Morey. I found the author using a number of deceptive tactics to prove his foregone conclusion that Allah is not the God of the Bible but rather theMoon-god of pre-Islamic Arabia whose worship is now perpetuated within Islam. I will classify his deceptive methods under five broad headings for simplicity of discussion:

1.Misquoting authorities,
2.Concealing evidence,
3.Filling pages with irrelevant information thus giving a false impression of establishing something,
4.Using logical fallacies to establish conclusions, and
5.Drawing conclusions for which no evidence was even suggested, much less established.
