Do you mean you believe in God because it may well be true? Do you then follow what is called Pascal's wager? Is that the foundation of your faith? That there is a possibility that we will be raised from dead and have to give account of our life and get punishment or reward depending on how we behaved? So the best bet is to play it safe and behave? So if all of this is false there is nothing to lose."

I never said whether or not I believed in God and regardless of that fact it is no concern or business of yours. Like I said before, if God exists it would be an unjust God that would damn people that have lived a good just life. That's the point isn't it? all religions are a wager, just in case, when really everyone has lost sight of what it takes to be accepted into heaven (if it exists)

"I think you have already lost it!"

I question your ability to think at all. You sound like you are judge and jury. If you are judging me that means you are holding yourself as high as God him/her/it....self. Surely only God can judge on these matters? Or are you challenging him/her/it? How very arrogant of you (sounds familiar though, didn't mohammad do the same?) I suggest you remove your head from the very dark place you have thrust it and smell the roses.

"But it's never too late, you still have time. Confirm that there is only one God who has created everything and has contacted man throughout history through his messengers and Muhammad (PBUH) is the last messenger who was given the Quran which is preserved for the rest of mankind. It is the last revelation which challenges you:

4:82 What, do they not ponder the Koran? If it had been from other than God surely they would have found in it many inconsistencies."

So don't just read it reflect on what you read in it."

WOW!!! I do believe you are trying to convert me. Sorry, I'm not into cults!!!! Listen! I won't confirm that there is only one God because I can't. How can you? I you can, show me here! If God exists I don't believe he/she/it would entrust the spiritual guidance of humanity to a murderous criminal called Mohammad. Nor do I believe that the warped passages in the Quran reflect God's word in any way. The only reason it is preserved is to show how NOT to do it!!!! Nor do I believe that if God exists he/she/it would allow you clowns to screw up the world and mankind the way you are.

The only relevation that challenges me is Islam has been allowed to continue for so long.
