look, if people convert to islam, thats becoz there are people who try to convert people to islam. after all spreading the faith is a core element for u guys! convert them, marry non muslims girls and convert them to islam. slowly sneak into lands of other cultures and start jihad! this religion works like a corporate organization, as i said before. and they use all sorts of lies and deception to do that.

you are very conveniently absolving islam from all wrong doings of muslim. this logic is absurd. if i use my book and religion to kill other people and convert and take their lands, then i along with my faith and the book are responsible. look, this religion has no theological standing of its own. and i dont expect it to come from a bunch of semi educated arabs, who for whatever reasons did not achieve any intellectual sophistication. and if anyone 'believes' that God came n gave that book in original hard cover edition. then i dont have much to say. a miraculous book, from which the arab bandits get inspired. osama bin laden gets inspired. sundry muslim marauders all over the world in the last 1400 yrs get inspired to decimate other people. and someone's claiming theres nothing wrong with the faith and the book. cheers to allah!!

if u stop being a believer for sometime, and read this book, it sounds so trite n hackneyd, its not funny. i mean like God!! this is what you wanted to tell me: **cken pray 5 times a day??? what an idiot!! this book has nothing spiritual or any deep philosphical thoughts in it. go read something by Confucius or Lao Tzu, or Buddha, or the writings of Aristotle or the other Greek schools or try to understand the concepts of Dwaitvad, Adwaitvad, Anekantvad, theory of Karma etc. like i said before. a society has to reach a certain level of intellectual sophistication to contribute to spiritual well being of an individual. otherwise it is gonna relegate itself to stupid directives: do this or else, do that or else. dont u know i am the special representative of God Himself!! bloody listen to me, or I will kill you!! cheers to allah!

the sheer intellectual bankruptcy in the muslim world is a direct reflection of this void exists in the core of this religion. nd if u carefully study the 'glorious' days of the islamic past, ul slowly discover that the intellectual geniuses were the product of other cultures whom islam had not completely wiped off! like Persian scholars or Babylonians. they were not chanting kuran when they produced their work. just like Newton n Einstein were not reading the old testament to produce their work.

in a nutshell. if the word 'believe' is removed from this religion, it has nothing to offer to humanity. and its aftereffects on human psyche are way too obvious to deny it. God wanted to **ck humanity, and so He gave islam. 3 cheers to allah.

i hv nothing more to say to u. m glad u stay in US. keep up the missionary work. sooner or later america shall also be islamic! we shall all cheer. cant wait to see a beach covered with burqa and bearded weirdos! i wish that just like my land is infected with this virus, so shall everyones!! lol the doomsday has to be received by everyone!
