Islam Alone is lame?

Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam

Awkward time in history, no doubt : We evolved to believe in Alpha apes in the sky, and discovered a whole different reality. I recommend the beginning of a spring cleaning on our minds, and discard any attachment to ideas of 1. Afterlife; 2. Gods; 3. prophets that know God; 4. Exclusivity; 5. Infallibility. Let's not prefer sensitilvty to truth. Trust truth. Kids can handle truth better than deception and we're still kids.
