Mother Says Nintendo Baby Pals Has Hidden Islamic Message

WTNH in Indiana posts the very strange story of mother who took a doll and a Nintendo game away from her daughters after discovering what she says were hidden messages in the toys proclaiming "Islam is the light."

Rachel Jones says the message first popped up in a doll she'd bought her 4-year-old and resurfaced later in a copy of Nintendo's Baby Pals for the DS, which she'd purchased for her 8-year-old as a reward for good grades. (Baby Pals, Nintendo DS)

"Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?"

Oh no, my child might start beLIEving in the WRONG Invisible Man in the Sky
As an Atheist, I find this funny. Oh nooooes, my child has been exposed. Jebus! Jebus....SAVE my child.

All religion and ALL doG's are MANMADE. Everything we know about every single doG or doG's have been told to us by other HUMANS.

Someday, the world will wake up and realize that we live on a "pale, blue dot" in a sea of blackness and fighting over who's doG is better than another's doG is useless and a waste of time.

Except of course the ONE TRUE OMNIPOTENT ONE....His Noodlyness the
Flying Spaghetti Monster. HE is the one, the only TRUE GOD, and your only hope of salvation!!!

Come brothers and sisters, be touched by his Noodly Appendage and find peace with fellow Pastafarians at the base of the Beer Volcano next to the Stripper Factory.

He didn't say that because he was atheist. He actually believed in God, but like Socrates, Epicurus did it for questioning the norm.

The belief that a cosmic Jewish Zombie,
who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree...

Ya, makes perfect sense...

Nintendo probably just bought the generic audio files from the same company that did the toy. Why hire a person to do it and pay them wages and whatnot when you can just buy stock audio files?

They called it a toy, lol!

Judging by her comments, this lady seems like a racist, klan member?

Actually watch the video. The game really DOES say islam is the light.

erm no. when words are placed for us to hear we often hear exactly that. try this link: http://www.youtube.com/watc...

@ shine1396
Well if that's not what it says, what does it say?
shine1396  +   2494d ago
I can't really tell but the method works in my opinion. listen to it again only from 30 to 33 second. and make sure your listening only to that specific part of the audio whilst reading one of this. so that you only influence is any of these statements.
*I can't see the light
*I can see the light
*i can't read the light
*I don't need the light.
my guess would be: afternoon delight

edit. My niece seems to be sure that its: I can't read the light. It doesn't make sense to me, but I've heard that children typically have better hearing then adults so maybe you might be hearing that

ballsofsteel  +   2494d ago
umm what was so bad
okay maybe if the thing said CONVERT TO ISLAM YOU INFIDELS then i can understand the outcry but even if it does say Islam is the light that really isn't offensive at all i mean i doubt your kid is suddenly going to convert to Islam or become an Islamic extremist

Dino  +   2494d ago
dude you gotta be kidding me
Islam is NOT the light, NOR is Christianity OR Judaism. they're all religions that will undo us as a species. They are all good ideas that are twisted by people in power to corrupt easily manipulated fools to do their dirty work. All are Abrahamic religions that cant stand each other and even can stand themselves. I believe in a higher power but it doesn't tell me who to hate, I take that responsibility myself. and I know religious people aren't all bad apples but damn if the bad ones don't outweigh the good by a huge margin.

sorry lombax
I don't need to watch SOMEONE else's documentary to form MY OWN opinions. But YOU, you keep having other people spoon feed you information via entertainment. I'll inform myself.
Lombax  +   2493d ago
Sorry Dino,
but I wasn't talking to you. If i was, you would have seen a "@ Dino 11.3"

But any who... Since I seem to have upset you...

"I don't need to watch SOMEONE else's documentary to form MY OWN opinions. But YOU, you keep having other people spoon feed you information via entertainment."

Are you serious? I base my opinions on EVERYTHING. Why must you wear blinders? OH! I get it, your religious.

Do you watch a Discovery Channel documentary about penguins and say "thats just their opinion"? Even though scientist call them FACTS?

"I'll inform myself."

Good for you. But why are you typing in English? A language that was taught to you? Since you "inform yourself" you must not know that the world is indeed round or that those dots in the night sky are actually burning balls of gas millions of light years away.

@ Lombax
Hey, its nice to see a freethinker with a sense of humor. If you want to have more fun, mosey on over to Joystiq and post there on this same subject. You will get attacked for being an evil Atheist...its sooo funny.

Add me

Very interesting ?
If the doll said "Jesus is the way" I'm sure the ACLU would be all over it right now !
NipGrip  +   2494d ago
I thought it said..
"Afternoon Delight" but I could be mistaken. Maybe it says, "This mom isn't right"?
cactuschef  +   2494d ago
"MAMA sent letters to the Federal Trade Commission, Mattel and the Securities and Exchange Commission regarding the lack of disclosure to parents that the doll was advocating for Islam, a material risk to girls in particular because of Shariah - the discriminatory and barbaric Islamic legal doctrine. MAMA also notified the FTC and SEC of the striking difference between Mattel’s soundtrack and actual doll recorded audio"

The world is crazy
poindat  +   2494d ago
"That didn't satisfy consumers who saw a jihadist conspiracy to indoctrinate their children in the Chinese-made toys. Self-described 'anti-jihadist' parents claimed an audio file Mattel posted on its corporate site was doctored. In fact, one group calling itself Moms Ask Mattel for Accountability, allegedly filed a complaint with the FTC in December."

This is why I have a negative view on religion, especially Christianity and its subsidiaries.

I remember seeing this on youtube ages ago. She's clearly hearing what she want to hear. Mattel being behind some Islamic conspiracy? Right...

I bet if "Christianity is the light" is what she has heard, she wouldn't be complaining.

And the baby in the nds game freaks me out.
TheInCrediBleSulk  +   2494d ago
This mother gives religious people a bad name. Correction: this mother giver people a bad name. And by the way, why the hell should you care if a doll says "Islam is the light" anyway. It isn't like your kids are going to become rabid Islamic Extremists. I hate when people put religion on such a f***king high horse because they always bend religions to suit their views and wind up not even following the religion as it is meant to be followed. This sort of racist crap is the reason why people cannot just f***king get along and work together to better ourselves and our planet.
cjflora  +   2494d ago
I don't believe that's what those toys are actually saying. But for all of you who say it's no big deal if it is, that's not really true. I mean, regardless of what religious phrase the baby was saying it's not really something that should be in a game or toy like that. It is a little creepy. Which is why I don't believe it's real. They have people who check these thing before shipping them and I don't believe that this would have just slipped by. Plus, these are made in China, where religion is strictly prohibited. I don't know what the Islam population is in China, but I can't imagine there are a lot of Islam believers there. It doesn't make sense that something like this would come out of China, IMO. You would think the Chinese government would be all over that factory. Who knows...

I saw this on the news a while back...
Yelled "YOU FRICKIN RETARD" at the tv. That doll could have been saying anything. I personally think it was saying nothing. Just some baby gibberish. But some mother, worked up by years of US propaganda and scared by anything foreign, decided to get, publicly, mad at a verbal Warshak inkblot.
Kurylo3d  +   2493d ago
articles like this are stupid. They only make me angry. Angry that i cant bit"ch slap that stupid paranoid mother... who definently is someone who discriminates. I mean how the heck do u hear "islam is the light" out of that voice. Its random mumbling. They say you hear what you want to hear. She wanted to feel paranoid about her children and islam lol
Needles  +   2493d ago
But...it is.
I must agree with the doll and DS game...Islam, IS! the light.
Bengoshi-San  +   2493d ago
Islam IS the light.

What's her problem anyway? So uptight. Stop having babies if you think everything you get them has subliminal messages. That must be a pretty pathetic existence.
inStereo  +   2492d ago
This brainwashing subliminal message WORKS.
After hearing this line mumbled from his DS, my own child is now a fundamentalist child of Islam and wants to kill all Christians in an apocalyptic jihad.
