in response to reader comment: Atheists think science proves there is no God. Muslims don't care about science...

....Islam in no way at ALL is violent nor is it evil. Now many people take verses out of the qur'an and take them out of context and try to prove islam is violent.This of course is not applipacle in trying to prove any theory about islam being violent because you have to understand why the qur'an says this and that. You cannot just simply read 1 verse out of thousands of verses. The bible on the contrary, is proven to contradict itself, proved itself written by man, false statements jesus made, scientifically proved wrong, violent verses.... for example.... this is what god commands the believers to do in your bible..

Samuel 15-2-4
Now go smite amelak,and utterly destroy all they have,spare them not,but slay BOTH man and women,INFANT,and SUCKLING,ox and sheep,camel and ass.
And saul(paul) gathered the people together and numberd in in talaim,2000 foot soldiers of JUDAH.:

And on top of that! The christians still have to follow ALL of the absurd statements in the old testemant....

"Do not think that I [Jesus] have come to abolish the Law (the Old Testament) or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke or a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law (the Old Testament) until everything is accomplished. (Matthew 5:17-18)

Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: 'The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat. So you must obey them and do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach.' (Matthew 23:1-3)"

The quran says this about freedom of religion,how we should act in war,how should we treat our enemy....

"But if the enemy incline towards peace, do thou (also) incline towards peace, and trust in God: for He is One that heareth and knoweth (all things). (The Noble Quran, 8:61)"

God does not forbid you from showing kindness and dealing justly with those who have not fought you about religion and have not driven you out of your homes. God loves just dealers. (The Noble Quran, 60:8)

"And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for God. But if they desist, then let there be no hostility except against wrongdoers. (The Noble Quran 2:193)"

"Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from error: whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy handhold, that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things. (The Noble Quran, 2:256)"

Again and again will those who disbelieve, wish that they had bowed (to God's will) in Islam. Leave them alone, to enjoy (the good things of this life) and to please themselves: let (false) hope amuse them: soon will knowledge (undeceive them). (The Noble Quran, 15:2-3)"

Say, 'The truth is from your Lord': Let him who will believe, and let him who will, reject (it):......(The Noble Quran, 18:

"If it had been thy Lord's will, they would all have believed,- all who are on earth! wilt thou then COMPEL mankind, against their will, to believe! (The Noble Quran, 10:99)"

"Say: 'Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger: but if ye turn away, he is only responsible for the duty placed on him and ye for that placed on you. If ye obey him, ye shall be on right guidance. The Messenger's duty is only to preach the clear (Message). (The Noble Quran, 24:54)"

"Say : O ye that reject Faith! I worship not that which ye worship, Nor will ye worship that which I worship. And I will not worship that which ye have been wont to worship, Nor will ye worship that which I worship. To you be your Way, and to me mine. (The Noble Quran, 109:1-6)"

Allah means God in arabic....

islam is the most compatible religion with science in the world,if you don't believe me, google it and research it yourself. Islam made claims 1400s years ago that have just been proven now.
