your blind faith is disturbing, friend. god did this god did that, and you talk about ANGELS! what are they supposed to be anyway? have you ever seen one? where do they live? what have the been doing all this time? i could tell you there was fairies at the bottom of my garden and it would carry as much weight as your claim to angels. people believe in fairies, so therefore they must be real?

i'm telling you that there are fairies, like the quran bible etc say their are angels, so therefore you must believe...?! i believe in dinosaurs because ive seen their bones - they aint mentioned in the bible (whats that about anyway?) and they dont have to be because the physical evidence is there. get real, man, religion is fake, its cheated us for years, its only when we got rid of the shackles of religious zealotry that we achieved progress in this world! christianity and islam was happy to let people be ruled and abused for centuries, and did nothing of note to prevent it, rather it perpetuated it, catholicism in particular. atleast emerging secular society granted a majority rather than a minority rights and power to their own lives. you make excuse for the great 'ALLAH'...why doesn't he make them for himself? just accept that islam is full of contradictions and archaic opinions and ideas...what makes islam so special anyway, or any religion for that matter.

theres always been religions and gods - and they've only lasted as long as the people who believe in them. the earth has been here for millions of years, in that context human history is the blink of an eye and religion a recent, suspicious fart. if wars between delusional christians and muslims cause world war three and wipe out humanity, there wont be a judgement day and 'the hereafter,' they'll be the long cold silence of a wasteland on earth until the sun expands into a red giant and torches this sad little rock. wake up and smell the coffee, or one day our children will eat ashes at breakfast.
