"A Muslim died killing an infidel and gains 72 virgins. Demonstrate that even if he only has sex with one each day, that in eternity he will have more sex than all the infidels combined during the life of the universe".

" Hamid has 10kg of explosives. If 1kg has a 90% chance of killing an armoured car driver, and 500g a 40% chance which size bomb should he make in order to kill most people? For extra points why any this not be the best tactic in the real world?"

Is this true? Why do we put up with this, when there would be complaints if atextbook had even a slight religious bias?
