My dear salman your command of Muslim theology is and you must pardon me: bogus.

You wrote:

>God (read this as Allah) isn't asking anyone to kill anyone else

One word; Bogus. Your Allah tells you in Q9:4 to go out and kill the polytheists (unless they convert to Islam) and who says that islam was not spread by the sword. This single aya was quoted by Mahmud of Ghazni as the reason for his Hindu genocide. So what is wrong with you? Ignorance or intellectual dishonesty?

Then you wrote:

>(matters of war, self defense not withstanding)

Bogus again. In Q9:29 your Allah is asking you to go out and fight ahl al-Kitab (oh you do not know any Arabic. I see) or the Jews and the Christians and the Hindus and the Buddhists etc...for no reason what so ever until Islam becomes the supreme religion. Again is this ignorance or intellectual dishonesty on your part?

>in addition to that to answer your question about why God doesn't just turn people's hearts human beings have been given free will for a reason

Bogus again. "Human beings have been given reason" in Islam? You must be kidding. And how about the doctrine of al-qada' wa al-qadr? You do not know any arabic. What is the use.

There is no free will in Islam! And do you know why? Because your allah and his rasulthe arabian warlord and caravan raider had no clue about basic Aristotelian logic.

So how come you did not know about al-qada' wa al-qadr? Is this ignorance or intellectual dishonesty?

Stay tuned for more.
