update your knowing guys , we're not in the stone age | Reviewer: alireza | 12/1/13
excuse me guys , I want to be honest with you first of all open your fucking holy book bible and then go to Numbers 31:17 see for yourself what moses did . he killed many innocent people according to your book but prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him Said Fight back with the Unblievers . but it was after they Killed many Muslims so god told them to fight with who attacking to you but don't kill innocent people , people who are not on the war like poor people , women and children and don't steal from anyone because god don't like transgressors . second of all Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him said that jesus is the messiah or in your language christ you can find it in holy quran verse 4:156-159 he never said that I am the messiah . third of all Prophet Muhammad Peace be Upon Him had 3 sons and 4 daughters not 40 sons and daughters , the other thing is that he had 9 wives and just one of them was virgin and other ones had husbands before but they lost them in war or trips and all 8 of them was old also it is good to know that he lived with his first wife till the last day of her life with no other wife , he married with others just to protect them from that wild culture of unblievers arab not for sex . if he wanted to have nice sex with his wives then he would get young beautiful arab girls so he didn't look for sex . so the idea of this song is not about source of islam i think it talks about leaders of religions who used religion to take the power just look at your mideval age your religion leaders raped people killed people burned people in the name of god but jesus never said to kill people . also our religion leaders after prophet muhammad pbuh , did all that things to innocent people but after your dark mideval age (that age muslims was most advance Civilization in science , Medic and Maths and Astronomy) about 14th century all this happend to us which is caused by your Politic Leaders (I have proof for it ) . End of All i just want to say you western people will believe what your politic and religion leaders say to you .for example your knowledge and picture you have in your poor minds about persian empire is just what you saw in 300 movie but facts will never change and history is not going to change , we don't care what you know or want to believe about persia or islam , your minds have been controls for many centuries , you're not going to change because jews have full control of you in their hand and also our too but we know it and you don't know it . for your persons who have brains just go and read why head chief of World Trade Center was not in there in 9/11 .
this is about islamic religion | Reviewer: anonymos guy | 10/12/13
This is about the islamic religion
Because the prophet muhammad used to kill in the name of god and
He had plural wives and he first was a saint.
And he got 80 servents murdered. He had 40 suns and daughters from his wives and this song is defenetly about him.
Just for the record :
I don't have anything against the prophet or the islamic religion
my point of wiew | Reviewer: Ayman | 8/7/13
It's clear that christian people are sick of the church etc. because their religion isn't pure anymore, it viewed some changes by popes over the centuries. But I think that Islam is the right one, if you read about it and know it's true purpose and goals you would understand, don't think of it as terrorism, because those terrorists are giving it a bad image. After all, don't judge before you try, or at least know the truth about something.
Open Your EYE.. | Reviewer: Aldre | 4/1/13
what see and hear is some of the heavy metal bands like metalica- genesis, megadeth-revelation, DT etc... is revolutionary heavy metal bands.. thats why christianity and other religions always hit them with "good news" because they spil some of the dirt of the "faithful" churchess... that depends in you on how you understand the history with scripture[s] even in revelation in john's vision that christ said in asia minor that all 7 churches are anti-church of anti-christ... the true religion has been swallowed by the evil one's... the true religion is gone in this era of lies...good day loner faith believer like me.. im also a christian but i have no religion ^_^
what is more important | Reviewer: a muslim | 3/11/13
go and do a research about the history from beginning until now so then you gonna discover the true religion that we must follow (Islam) .and we have to fight the peaple who lies to creat a bad things about God and l Islam like the ones who created the (Iluminati) to governe the world and that hapenned when the Islam appeared....... to learn more informations; i advice you to read a series about (the Arrivals )
not about a specific religion | Reviewer: Amr Hamed Osman | 3/9/13
I don't think this is about Christianity,I'm an Egyptian, I was born and raised as a Muslim and I can relate this to what's happening in my country when I see politicians using religion to blind people, I think this song is a general idea about those who use religion to mislead people in order to reach their goals that has nothing to do with religion
Misleading | Reviewer: JINKY ADONA | 11/3/12
This song is eventually misleading to Christian faith.. This song is only Emphasize the four books in BIBLE ( GENESIS, EXUDOS, LEVITECUS, DUETRONOMY )in that ancient time people does't know about MESSIAH.. those time people lived in survival.. they don't have choice but to kill, steal, lust in their very eyes.. because they don't have faith in GOD.. even Moses because of his unfaithfulness did not enter the PROMISE LAND.
All religions do nasty things! | Reviewer: Cl*oud | 10/19/12
When I first read the lyrics of this song my first thought was Christians. I was raised as Christian but I hate this religion. Not religion but Church mostly. I was raised Christian and now when I can use my own head I became an atheist. All religions do nasty stuff around the world, no one is innocent.
What I think | Reviewer: Carlos | 7/6/12
I read a lot of comments, not all ofcourse but, it was all about religions... and this song is not about religion. This song is about god and the violence that creates and implies, this song is a serious claim to the human to be human and live and respect us all and our beliefs.
My best to all,
Carlos Alfaro Robles
In the name of God(s) | Reviewer: Steve | 6/4/12
I can't believe all of the people that interpret this song as a reference to a single religion but I guess I shouldn't be surprised. These are the same people that read a common book then preach hate against anyone that interprets that book in a different way. This song is about the evils of all religions! Killing in the name of god is not reserved for Muslims! What about Christians in the US bombing abortion clinics, or Dubya making comments about doing Gods work while killing thousands of Muslims! Did you all forget the Crusades? There are also references to small cults like the Branch Davidians and possibly Jim Jones in the song. Anyone with an open mind can find references to many religions in these lyrics. All religions are cults and should be abolished
everything & nothing | Reviewer: anonymus | 4/22/12
i see that there are arguments about which religion this song is about..the way i see it is that this song is talking about every religion but neither one religion..every religion has its dark part of the history..and this is what this song is about..speaking about everything and nothing..that is the way i see it
Conclusion based on lots of knowledge | Reviewer: Franck Peter | 2/16/12
Let me clarify:
This song is about Theistic-Abrahamic belief systems which have been abused systematically, by people who have other agendas than what the teachings of Abraham initially was - and what The Lord's message was.
It's in fact not FOR Theism, but contrary, against. This is what i call a "brainwashing" song. It's supposed to make the listener think that they're on his side, and support his ideas. As always, people tend to agree with lyrics of songs, merely based on the fact that it sounds good.
This song IMPLIES that Theism is dangerous. Not that the TEACHINGS (of the Abrahamic kind) are bad, but that it is being abused, and that people cannot be trusted to uphold their doctrines.
I.E: THEISM IS BAD!
The truth of this song | Reviewer: Bob Sagget | 10/7/11
Here's what the song is really talking about! They are the ones who control the world behind the scenes! They try to use religion to keep people seprate hence the age of duality that we live in... Anyways they go by many names but all have a "common idea" New world order and they will twist "any" faith through the weakness of man... I'll start naming them illuminati, freemasons, bilderbergs, trilateral commission just to name a few... And the symbolism of their belief is on the front of the album! look it up! Its the ALL SEEING EYE! And the line saint gone astray with a septor and a gun symbolizes "Ruling with force" Governments kings etc.. and the saint gone astray is Lucifer! Do the research and see what u come up with!
Christian fanatics, not muslim | Reviewer: Poulun | 8/30/11
It is pretty clear to me that this song is quite specifically about radical christian-inspired cults like Branch Davidian (Waco, Texas / David Koresh) and Peoples Temple (Jim Jones).
In the DVD of Dream Theater performing it Live at Budokan, these are also the people/tragedies showing on the video behind the band.
In more general terms I guess this is about how people with a certain mindset can pervert scripture (of any denomination) to suit a self-serving purpose.
In the Name of God | Reviewer: Dream Theater fan | 7/20/11
Hey DT fans, just want to add a post here. The people here who say that this song is about the sins of religious fanatics are probably right. I'm a Christian myself and i used to think that this song talked about radical Islam. However, i just listened to this while reading the lyrics and i'm pretty sure it's actually talking about all religions. About how any religion taken to the extreme can do things that any kind hearted person, regardless of religion, would agree is wrong.
I'm not 100% sure, but i would even go as far as saying that the song is also specifically for Christians, not muslims. Think about it, how many people in the United States alone have done things that are horrible, and claimed to be Christians.
And for those who think that all muslims are bad, just remember there is only a relatively small group of muslims that carry our Jihad. Many muslims just want to live their lives peacefully, especially those in the US. I'm not saying there isn't the danger of Jihadists that come to the US and wait for years to attack. I'm just saying don't generalize the term "radical Muslim" to mean every one out there.
