Hi btilly,

Your facts are wrong. Let me help straighten you out. Don't worry, it is my pleasure.

1. "I see you did bite the Arabic dirt."
Yes, I did bite the Arabic dirt. I served two combat tours in Iraq. I recommend you bite some also. Trust me, it won't hurt you a bit unless you are an unbeliever then i can't vouch for you in that case.

2. "Isa said round many thousand of years before any Arab named Muhammad said it was flat."
This is wrong. It was not many thousand of years before. I think you meant to say six hundred years.

3. "Allah is a Hindu Sanskrit word, Il-lah is Arabic."
This is wrong. Allah is the name for the God since time began. All peoples used Allah for God but most forgot. Even Jesus said Elohi, Elohi, in Aramaic which linguistically sounds like in Arabic Allahi, Allahi for my God, my God. That is still in the Bible and I wonder why they didn't translate that into English??? Even Jews today call God Elohim which sounds in Arabic Allahim linguistically sounds the same but spelled differently which is why it fools you.

4. "When your one prophet invaded Mecca where the Kaaba waS ALREADY A SHRINE, he took a word the Arabs already knew and used it as the word for god."
Yes, the Arabs already knew Allah from Abraham and Ishmael, they just didn't want to get rid of the other 360 Gods that they were also worshiping and making a living from due to the pilgrimage 1000s of years later after falling into polytheism. They turned Abraham's rituals into a pagan affair so Muhammad came and cleansed the Qa'ba and rededicated it back to Allah, the God of Abraham.

5. "return to Christendom. You would be better off. At least they teach you that Jesus came to die and did die for all mankind. Islam said he didnt die"
I am better off in Islam my friend. Islam is easy while Christendom is confusing to me. I would not be better off being confused. Islam doesn't say he did not die it says he was not killed. They did not kill him. God raised him up to heaven.

I hope this helps you btilly,

peace
