i dont think you really understand the meaning of the word 'theology'? do you? when i criticize islam, i mean koran and that so called prophet. the arab warlords thought of islam as some magic wand. they conquered iraq and persia, but could not remove everything that was there before that. when i say dont confuse babylonians or persians with islam, i mean that before islamic warlords gained control over those areas there was some culture. and islam could not eradicate it completely.

now go back in history, and tell me what has come out of the land of arabia except mohammad n koran? thats the land of pure islam. and you'll find that it is completely devoid of human intellectual achievements. if anything happened in iraq or iran thats becoz those people had a background of civilization. now lets compare this with say china, a centre of taoism, confucianism and buddhism. now over the centuries many things hv come out of china. whereas arabia is completely blank. and that is why mohammad is not a miraculous prophet but a charlatan. to be able to give something philosophical to the world apart from a book given by god!! you need to learn, read and write and be a part of a culture. not get drunk 1 day and say god came in my dreams last nite with 72 virgins.

so. i REPEAT. do not confuse the contributions of ppl from persia and mesopotamia with islam. if wikipedia is your source of research then the god of mohammad help you!!! rest assured if you want to know anything about pre islamic history, let me know. i shall tell you the stories of ali and mohammad. and also of cyrus and zarathustra. and of assyrian culture and what is left of it in modern syria.... and and i'll repeat ...again. Newton or Einstein do not owe anything to Christianity or Judaism. i dont think you understood what i meant in my previous posts. a religion has philosphical, spiritual, theological and lastly cultural underpinnings. islam has none. and its core being devoid of these things drives its followers to madness. and this madness is not a result of iraq war or israel. its the same madness that destroyed persia, byzantine, southern europe, northern africa and india. to me it is brutal imperialism. to some bleeding hearts its OK!!!

and I am getting weary of your juvenile bragging about research. you use the words statistics and data like a 5th grade kid. i know that you dont know more than correlation in the name of statistical research. i think islam should be delegitimized and ppl should be encouraged to practice other religions. but in the west, christianity should be declared the state religion for good. coz in the name of secularism and multi faith, islam is creaitng serious dents. and apologists like you have no problems with it. and they turn their eyes blind to what happens in saudi arabia or iran. the fallacies in koran, and the actions of mohammad and their followers should be exposed. that guy murdered ppl and slept with a 7 yr old and also his adopted son's wife. if god sent such a prophet, it must be pretty patheitc.

i dont know much about neo conservatives website. but you please stop relying on wikipedia. islamic propoganda runs everywhere. as a first step on study of religion, learn to see the difference between religion and culture, then dissect the core of a religion. now tell me the 5 core, essential pillars of islam. and compare them with the cores of other religions. are you able to see anything? i see the muslim world and especially the women as victims of this thug, mohammad. they need to get out of islamic slavery. if iran is able to process some uranium its not by reading koran. i understand erradicating islam is very difficult. thats no reason to justiy it.

a link for u. http://iranchamber.com/literature/articles/islam_poetry_iran1.php. if you think this guy has anything to do with neo cons, then let me know.

if anything has come out of the 'islamic' world, its DESPITE islam not due to islam. go and study persian poetry after islamic conquest and you shall get an idea. show me what mohammad brought new. NOTHING. the koran has NOTHING to offer. i cant imagine you actually believe otherwise. and am not a fundamentalist christian. i'm not a christian by the way. i am just anti islamic for all the right reasons.
