in response to reader comment: response to palli

Having spent many (wasted) hours reading my copy of the Koran, I find it difficult to conclude where reality commences and fantasy ends.As pointed out by many others there is no precise progression in the presentation, this causes confusion in the mind of the reader when he recognizes the many apparent contradictions Thus I don't feel that Palli presents a very compelling explanation.

Until such time as the "Holy Book of the so called True Believers" is codified into the language of the twenty first century and the exhortations for Jihad and senseless killings of non believers are scourged from the text, there will be fanatic extremists opting for martyrdom and the mythic sensual rewards to be had in paradise!
