Well if I go to muslim community or Saudi Arabia & try to preach them about something new
(new religion, science or say yoga) and ask them to abandon their evil practice of considering
themselves being superior than others, killing/sucide bombing, intolerence & there are no
70-72 virgins for man to die for allah etc etc.
Do you think what will happen to me or anybody for that matter. This answers your first
paragraph. But you can argue I need to be a prophet in order to do so , well I got a mole
somewhere in my body .
Well we can go with advanced technology and weapons and force them to convert to my
religion or kill them. Then you will see the other side that's what happend in the past (well
not with the power of technology but with the power of sword).
But don't worry we are not going to do anything like that (unless it becomes absolutely neccessary to defend humanity ) because we are living in the civilized world , but we won't accept that un-human behaviour that they are still continuing with, from their past in the name of their religion, prophet & god.
you wrote : "now, if you are gonna talk about my prophet and my religion i suggest that you do some research before... because what u just said is purely idiotic, maybe that's just because you are living in an idiotic world."
Do u think I need to do any research about your prophet's deeds, his wars & war bounties,
his wives, his un-secular messages to slaughter kafirs, or satanic verses ?
What do you want me to research about your religion, the hate verses, killing kafirs, apostasy,
intolerences or the miracles/science moon getting split into two halves .... ??
Do you want me to quote the verses ? But as I said action speaks louder than words.
every one is now aware of your history & theory and the results are also out. Look around
what's happening.... action is speaking louder than words...but I don't know if you are
pretending to be a deaf.
It's you who need to do a little research without any biasing, any mullah preaching but with
open mind. For that you need to come out from your religious veil (otherwise your mind won't
accept any new ideas/thinking).
You believe in your religion as long as it's not harming anybody (if it's at all possible to do so?)
Belive in whatever you want even stone as long as you are not throwing it at me .
