Respect my cosmological theory

Reader comment on item: Finding Allah in Unlikely Places
in response to reader comment: SHOW SOME RESPECT

Submitted by Zahir (Canada), Feb 19, 2006 at 14:13

I have often wondered how muslims can stand the embarassment of appearing in puiblic, knowing that a majority of thinking people find them comical. Admittedly it is a kind of black comedy. Here we have grown up people who throw tantrums and make demands like three year olds, because they percieve the characters of their cosmolgical theory has been insulted by innocent or amusing artwork. If this continues all artistic self expression will become proscribed, or self censored and we will sink into a dark age of non-creativity.

The allah theory is only one of many possible cosmological theories. Like most of the other cosmological theories, it falls short of a complete explanation of the grand cosmos. I doubt very much if the supreme entity gets upset because its creations are themselves creative and artistic.

My cosmological theory is superior to your cosmological theory and I ask only that you show at least as much respect for it, as you demand for your own cosmological theory.
