Morey obviously thinks his readers will fall for anything. So he does not bother to tidy up his deceptions. Page after page of Morey's book reveals how he manipulates the evidence he is working with. For example, on pages 5 and 7 he discusses the findings at Hazer in Palestine. On page 6 he shows four diagrams of the artifacts discovered there. After identifying the findings as having came from a major temple to the Moon-god in Palestine, Morey describes diagram 4 in the following words:
Several smaller statues were also found which were identified by their inscriptions as the "daughters" of the Moon-god (See Diagram #4); (Morey, p.7).
Notice here that according to Morey the inscriptions identify the statues as the daughters of the Moon-god. But didn't he direct us to look at Diagram #4? Well, Diagram #4 reveals something interesting. Underneath Diagram #4 we find the following words:
Pieces of the idols of the daughters of the Moon-god. The inscription identifies them as the
"daughters of god" (Morey, p.6).
But we have already seen that according to Morey
on his page 7, the inscriptions identified the statues as daughters of the Moon-god
(Morey, p.7). Which page of Morey's book are
we to believe? Six or Seven? It appears that the inscriptions did not say Moon-god. But
Morey is so fond of his Moon-god-in- Islam
theory that he just simply inserted the word "Moon" before "god" on
We still do not know for sure what the inscription (page 6) or inscriptions (page 7) do say. But without doing any further checking we discover Morey's errors from the very pages he writes. What level of readership was he writing for?
