Devasahayam - Mansoor

in response to reader comment: Also another detail he forgot (and assumed conveniently)

I appreciate Devasahayam's prolific knowledge and his attempt to defend his faith. I believe that faith is faith and you can't prove your faith like litmus test - it is based on intuition and it is pure mental concepturalization without sceintific evidence. So arguments going to the level of personal shaming or humiliation is not at all acceptable to a civilized mind.

I quote from memory a sentence in Les Miserables by Victor Hugo where the Father looking at a scorpion says " Poor creature, it is not its fault" . Mr. Mansoor, however illogical his arguments are, may be a gentleman, always with a smiling face, ready to help anyone, kafirs including. I found most of the Pakistanis I met here very kind and helpful gentlemen on personal level to all irrespective of nationalities, religion. Logical arguments definitely penetrates any stubborn mind and I am sure Mansoor and Devasahayam etc will be spending sleepless nights on the points raised by the other. This is what Mr. Daniel Pipes intends with this great site, not to spread hatred.

I believe all religions appeared and continuing to exist in this earth befitting the populace it represents, doing its specific purpose and all are leading the mankind to ultimate perfection. Clash of ideas always purifies both and it is complementary to human progress. It is not far away,(few more centuries?) all religions will be loving and co-existing each other and will be performing on personal level. Mansoor and Devasahayam or Sadhsiv such that, will be embracing each other in the heaven (heaven because they are sincere in their arguments) regretting whatever hate creeped in their arguments.
