Savage Islam 2 - The Imperfect Book

If the Qur’an did not pretend to grant eternal life, would anyone hold its passages as true?
I think not!
In fact, without its prize of an ‘all expenses paid, trip of a lifetime, to paradise’, the Qur’an, as with all other doctrines, looks exactly like a manifesto for totalitarian control. Control that is blatantly evident in the speech and writings of many of its followers, instructed as they are to add ‘PBUH’ or ‘May Allah be pleased with her’ to their words.
The Qur’an is a mind prison.
And about those religious affectations that are applied, I thought Muhammad didn't even want a tomb! I can't see him being the sort of man who went around enforcing 'Say "Peace be unto him" when you speak my name.'  Can you? Really? I reckon if he had been that sort, nobody would have taken any notice of him in the first place! So that affectation must have come from the high priests, clerics, Imams and Ayatollahs, what-have-you, to limit freedom of thought.
The Nazi's prohibited books that where against their doctrine, doesn't Islam do the same? And why? Because the men who control the religion fear the knowledge will loosen their grip. They proclaim the books to be against the teachings in the Qur’an which followers are taught is perfect, and so 'must' be wrong! More evidence of the mind prison?
But could the Qur’an be the perfect book?

Humanity knows way more than is written in the Qur’an. Hell, I know more than is in the Qur’an! It was written before most of the knowledge humans have, was known. Its contribution to life's useful knowledge is minimal.
And, whether it's perfect or not, it's certainly is not necessary.
I've been married, brought up children and had a very nice life, without ever seeing even the cover of the Qur'an! I've never once thought "Ooh, you know what, I need to read the Qur'an for guidance."
Can anyone supply a page from the Qur’an that describes CPR (Cardiopulmonary resuscitation) Unlikely? Or one that tells of how to cure Cancer? Again, doubtful? Can anyone supply a page which tells of why a woman should be stoned? Almost certainly, and probably more than one page!
If you needed emergency brain surgery, who would you choose to operate on you?
A fully trained brain surgeon or
a member of the Muslim religious hierarchy?
I know you'd choose the surgeon and that you would make that choice because you wouldn't want a man trained in brain surgery by the Qur’an messing around inside your head! He'd be useless!

Now, while inclusion of these 'useful things', or any other useful thing for that matter, would not of itself signal the unquestionable divinity of the Qur'an, the lack of their inclusion does show that the Qur'an is imperfect simply because is does not include ALL information. Surely, only a book which presents ALL the knowledge of the universe in a non partisan format can be considered perfect?

There's a separate question here, has anyone ever done a survey to find out what the global population would consider a perfect book? Is there even a 'perfection test' for books? I feel there should perhaps be at least a survey taken before anyone goes using the label 'the perfect book'.
And to extend that thought, is there a legal issue?
How can a book which has not been tested for perfection, be promoted as such?
The UK's Trade Descriptions Act 1968 states...
'Each product sold(1) must be as described, of satisfactory quality, and fit for purpose as described refers to any advert or verbal description made by the trader.'
Which basic means...
'If it doesn't do what it says on the tin,
it is illegal to claim that it does!'
If the Qur'an cannot prove its perfection, shouldn't its promotion as such be considered illegal in the UK?

(1)In this instance 'sold' would have the meaning 'comprehended' as in 'Yeah, I buy it'

Finally, how can a book which one must learn a language to 'fully comprehend' be perfect? That automatically excludes those who, for whatever reason, cannot learn that language! To extend this question, how can anyone accept as 'perfect' any book which cannot even defeat the mortally written Divine Evidence Laws?
