I suppose I should be looking in the grave yards for those who were coverted posthumusly. As I see it there are far more of those than there are of the living. Why should there be any conversions to any religion? Why is it so important for Muslims to push conversion on a people? I asked the same question of Christians. Why must we convert? And the answer was the same from both the Christian and the Muslim: "Because G-D told us to convert you". If I don't accept this from a Christian why should I accept it from a Muslim? What does conversion mean any way? Does it make me a better man? Does it lift me up to G-D in a way that I cannot already accomplish? Does it make me more knowledgable or wiser? The answer is NO! So why should I convert

All it would do is satisfy those who wish to enslave me.
