    In the videos the doll was saying "Islam is the Light" That's an unusual line for a dolly.

    Did you listen to the preacher? Typical -"my religion is better than yours." [​IMG]

    Ugh, things like this make me sick. Little kids are not going to change their religion based off the babblings of a doll. Human beings like to pick out things that make sense to them...it's the reason we see ghostly faces in photographs, and the reason we hear "voices" in the whisper of a waterfall or the swish of the wind.

    Baby dolls creep me out to begin with, but the simplest answer here is just to avoid buying the doll. Yet here people are making a huge deal out of something that is nothing.

    Snopes does a good job of debunking this issue.

    People hear what they want to hear. Bottom line, if you expect to hear something, you'll hear it.

    If a doll muttering makes you change your religion....how much faith did you have in the first place?

    I only listened to about a minute of that preacher, but it was enough to make me sick and sad that there are people who listen and look up to him.

    Don;t get me wrong... I agree that this is just the mind and suggestion and that this whole movement to destroy these dolls or have them pulled from the market is just silly.... but... what the frell kind of cooing noises is that supposed to be????? I've never heard a doll or a baby make any kind of babbling or cooing noise close to that ever. You think they would have done a better job with that. Regardless of what it is or isn't saying that doll is a piece of junk [​IMG]

    Sounds pretty clear to me... although I have no problem at all with that statement.

    I think it's very possible that someone at the 3rd- or 4th-world factory messed with the recording.

    It's kinda funny and not a reason to get all up in arms religiously, LOL! [​IMG]

    All Religions from God are "the Light".
