At one stage I would have just said - 'How can you believe what you say?' But I am not surprised any more at the degree to which some people will continue to deny reality in the face of overwhelming evidence against their beliefs.

Of course it is a human invention. Did snails or rabbits create it? Humans (of Middle Eastern ethnicity) created it and embellished it .

'it is based on the spoken words of GOD who is more respectfully known as ALLAH."

When did God speak and who heard it? Cannot you separate your opinions from reality? Did anyone ask God whether the semitically derived 'Allah' was a more respectfully title than the name 'Bunjil' which aboriginals of Victoria, Australia use? Or 'Brahma' for that matter?

And saying that Islam is "based on the spoken words of GOD " is just an opinion of yours and cannot ever be proven as a fact.

"....can i make it very clear that when you hate islam, you are actually unhappy with what ALLAH has ordained for you. that must mean that there is somethng wrong with you...."

With as much veracity I can say - when you hate the beliefs of the Aboriginal people of Victoria, Australia - YOU are actually unhappy with what 'Bunjil' has ordained for you. Therefore, using your logic - that MUST mean there is something wrong with you.

What you are doing is using the old Islamic tactic of saying that there is something wrong with anyone who criticises Islam . That is why Islamists coined the word 'Islamophobia'. The same tactic that gays used to imply that there was something wrong with straight people if they criticised homosexual's behaviours.

I can certainly criticise Islam - it's completely riddled with inconsistencies, errors and faults. You want people to shut up though don't you? As for me, I'm healthy and have a great life - there's very little 'wrong' with my life basically because I appreciate each day. You could certainly say I was 'blessed' (as we all are, if we'd just take the time to see it.)

. God doesn't mind if I criticise Islam. Criticism means nothing to truth. That's why Islamists are so frightened of criticism

As God can never be defined, playing the 'my God is better than your God' game is totally absurd.

You should look at the reasons why you wish to state personal opinion as fact.

You're fooling nobody (except, obviously... yourself. )
