in response to reader comment: why hate islam?

It would seem most of the death and hardship in Palestine and Iraq is caused by Muslims themselves... or rather on ground of Muslims attacking other Muslims.

I hate Islam because of its intolerance of freedom of speach, and the fact that in a lot of Muslim States to change from being a Muslim is a crime. This not the actions of a religion of peace.

I have read most of Quran.... it shows tolerance towards other religions?.... are you sure you have read the Quran?

I am an agnostic. I have read the entire Old Testament, New Testament. I have read a lot of the Quran, a lot of the Mormon Bible, some Hindu texts, and some Buddhist texts. I went to Christian High School. Back then just to be a revolutionary I tried to write a report on how the Quran is superior to the Christian Bible. In the end I failed, because I found it impossible given what the Quran really says. I have my problems with the OT and NT, but nothing compared to my problems with the Quran. It reeks of being written by man, not by God/Allah. The Quran is just too sexist, violent, anti-Jewish, and simply silly.

In my opinion I find it nearly impossible to imagine a timeless God / Allah could be responsible for such earthly dribble. The only other religious book that even comes to close to being as silly as the Quran is the Mormon Bible. Remember, I am an agnostic, so therefore I am impartial. I have had my problems with all of the religious books I have studied, but the Quran… literally left me speechless with its level "how can people really believe this is the thoughts of timeless perfect being".

When is the last time have you heard of a Christian, Jew, Hindu, Buddist killing in the name of their God?

Koran 5:33
The Punishment for those who oppose Allah and his messenger is : Execution or Crucifixion or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides or exile from the land
