Dhimmi no more,

It's irrelevant who developed the systems of abrogation, that it had to be developed in the first place is more troubling. This is indicative of inconsistencies in the text, which they understood would have led to ecclesiological chaos. This is the reason why the scholars needed to develop and overlapping harmonization for the inconsistencies.

From your response I believe we are in accordance as to the influence by later scholars in defining modern day day Islam. The issue is that system does not allow for a challenge to these definitions, causing the tenants of the religion to become stuck in the 10th century.

I don't agree with your assertion of Mohamed being marginal at best. Jesus was not even a ruler and was definitely marginalized, but his beliefs has shaped western civilization.
