hello typical muslim brother usman. i have seen many of of you everywhere and i still laugh because you think there's only one path in life and that has to be ISLAM. r you trying to say one billion muslims are going to heaven whereas the 4 billion non beleivers are going to rot in hell?

you think that is the truth of afterlife. 1st of all you can't even prove there is afterlife. all you do is put your trust and your whole life into something that hasn't been seen by any man. heaven and hell are very appealing to those people who are scared of death. human beings have always had desires. do you know wat is their biggest desire??? it has always been ETERNAL LIFE, but unfortunately for those who can't understand that life is only for once, they get very frightened of death, coz they know it's all going to end.

so in order to please themselves and comfort their people they came up with the idea of afterlife and the river flowing with wine , milk , honey. one question i have is, why do you want to go to heaven when you can get everything here NOW. the way i see, god has already provided heaven here on earth since he has given us everything, so whyy are you so greedy for the 72 houris?? lust perhaps?? this god of yours work in very magical way, doesn't he? 1st he says control your lust while on earth, then he will reward u with the 72 virgin gals.

wh y does he need to do all this drama? or maybe this drama was started by we people ourselves.i don't think a god thinks like that. he should be more like a god not a pimp.oops( sorry for that). you say we people are stubborn to realise the true religion. how do we know which is true religion, is it my fault i'm born christian, or is it that when you were born the word islam was on your forehead. how do you define true religion?

i know what your answer will be. now all you will say is it is written in quran and blah blah blah. why not the other scriptures that came before it like torah or bible or guru granth sahib or vedas/ avestha . to me they are also saying the same stuff . so what's so special about your true path? could it be because you were born into it so you had no choice but to defend it.

anyway i know you as a muslim don't have a right to opt out of your religion because you will then be apostate. but if you still think there is heaven waiting for you with all the beautiful ..... you know what, well then keep on dreaming. what about your wives in afterlife then?? aren't they gonna be mad that you re going to spend more time with the 72 gals?? and did i miss the river flowing with wine. my god, no wonder people convert to this true path . here on earth you are prohibited for drinking alcohol, then why god encouraged it when you are in heaven. don't you respect him anymore when you have been accepted into his heaven?

all i know is truth is a pathless land. goodbye
