Mu'een Ud Deen, you are doing your level best to totally obfuscate the issue and divert the argument to some irrelevant side-bar, ie the arguments about light and plants in the Bible. Who cares about that?

The issue at hand is the rampant violence that Islam is exporting everywhere you find it. Rapes, murders, terrorist, and genocide exists in abundance everywhere Islam touches the planet.

As for your absurd claim that the Koran cannot be "correctly interpreted" by anyone not speaking Arabic, that's nonsense. Scholars who speak fluent Arabic and who are experts in the language as well as the culture have given us accurate English translations. Furthermore, many Muslim clerics are translating verses from the Koran into English while preaching to English-speaking audiences, and they're using the same violent language that others have quoted here.

This whole "you don't speak the language so you don't understand it" argument does not cut it.

Furthermore, we in the West have a saying - "Actions speak louder than words."

And it is by the actions of Muslims that Islam is being judged, not so much by what it says. I don't need to understand the subtle nuances of the language in order to see that Muslims are using Islam as an excuse to commit rapes, murders, terrorism, and genocide all over the world. Their actions speak louder than any translated word ever could.

Why don't you try debating the actual talking points instead of diverting the argument into irrelevant nonsense about when plants and sunlight appeared?
