Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?
in response to reader comment: There is no GOD

Submitted by Nick Cathcart (United States), Feb 26, 2008 at 23:26

I found your article rather interesting, and although I invariably disagree, I would like to ask why you think this. I mean not to be insulting or rude in any way, but classmates at my school say the same thing, and when I ask why, they fail to come up with a reasonable answer and I am left to think of everyone else who say there is no God, as "unreasonable people," since I can never find an answer from them.

I believe that everyone should get a share in what they say, even if I don't believe in what they stand for, and for me to automatically think of those who say they don't believe in God as "unreasonable" isn't fair for those who truly stand for what they say with facts. (Well, I'm a kid, I doubt anyone would care about what I say or think)

I assume you are not in high school, so I thought it would be nice to get an adults point of view on the matter rather than from Freshman and Sophmore classmates. I would appreciate it.
