Did the ‘Prophet’ Muhammad Suffer from Temporal Lobe Epilepsy?

If there is but a single religious figure from human history that people should be discouraged from emulating, it’s the founder of the Islamic religion, Muhammad. Should you possess the stomach to read through the compendium of medieval torture pornography that is the Qur’an and the Islamic Hadiths, you’ll see what I’m talking about. Muhammad, according to his own religion’s sacred scripture, was a murderous paedophile, and a child-wife-beater. This is, of course, a somewhat oversimplified description of a character who also possessed charitable, loving, gentle and benevolent qualities as well, but I shall leave the starry-eyed doting over Muhammad to both Muslims and irrationally romanticising scholars like Karen Armstrong, and just focus on his contemptible and capricious conduct. But we must ask; what was it about Muhammad that made him so extremely kind on the one hand, yet so insanely violent, licentious and brutal, on the other? Was he simply a product of his environment, or was there something seriously wrong with his brain?
