To Ynnatchkah: Appreciate your comment

Hello Ynnatchkah,

Thanks for your comments.

It is tough to get through to Muslims that they are defending the undefendable because of the intense indoctrination they undergo from an early age about the purity and truth of their religion and the untouchable holiness of their founder.

They are unable to break out of the circularity of their reasoning. For them proof of the Koran's source is the Koran itself. Only the Muslims who accept that this reasoning is childish, implanted in them when they were children, are able to examine their religion and its founder impartially.

Some do manage to break out of the 'circle' and with the help of the Internet more Muslims will be able to break out of the encirclement of Islamic teachings.

Blogs like DanielPipes help in the process by letting Muslims come here and argue with people like us. Despite the hard-wiring of illogical thinking into their brains many Muslims will realise they have been forced into a state of mind that practically forces them to accept all the inversions and perversions of history and logic that is dished out by their 'scholars'. Truth, as the Koran itself proclaims, stands out from error.

Warm regards,

Plato
