Do you think that saying something over and over again eventually makes it true? Sure seems like it. That's probably why you are forced to pray 5 times a day... not out of piety... but because it reinforces a lie that's really really hard to believe. I've heard that some muslims pray 17 times a day... it must be incredibly hard to believe what they believe.

1. Your claim that the "word [i]slam means peace" is misleading at best, and downright evil propaganda at worst. I've heard this lie repeated many many times... fact: islam literally means "submission"... check any dictionary... there are many available to you. BTW... there are other dictionaries besides the "Dictionary of lies that muslims must tell kafirs".

You may say that islam means "peace" in some warped, figurative sense... don't say it, it's a lie too. We already know it - we're just waiting for you to figure it out.

Define the thing by its deeds and by its words. Islam IS the religion of death and enslavement. If it acts like a pig... if it snorts like a pig... if it looks like a pig.... it AIN'T a horse!

2. Your assertion: "The Quraan is original and has never been changed."

Some claim that there are 13 versions of the koran. At any rate, there are AT LEAST two very different versions of the koran. Are you sunni or shiite? Once you tell us that, then we'll understand why you claim there is only one version - the other version is just wrong, right? Stop with the lies already! repeating them ad-nauseum will not make them true.

3. "There people amongst the Muslims who memorise the Quraan by heart. This ensures that it can never be changed even if every copy is destroyed." Right... because word-of-mouth traditions are always the most accurate... so, of course, this "ensures" that it'll never change. Leave it to a muslim to trust that when another muslim says he has memorized every word of an incredibly long and cryptic document, he takes it to be true. What happens when every koran is destroyed? I mean, if one million people have memorized your book, then there'll be one million versions of your book. Whose memory are you going to trust then? If you say that, miraculously, allah will make all memorized versions exactly the same (he is allah after all... the omnipotent) then why bother memorizing it in the first place? Does allah the omnipotent need your help?

I memorized a poem when I was a kid... wanna hear it? K... here goes...

There once was a man from Nantucket...

no, wait... I'm not sure... no, that ain't it.

(my memory isn't what it used to be,

perhaps, I'll try another poem just to see)

...

There once was a man from Mecca, who stood and said "hey, what the hecka!"

he got a new widow bride, with lots o' cash on the side

then he used her money, to marry his 6 year-old honey

he fell in a bout of epilectic fit, and claimed the moongod did it

then he wrote a book of random rants, that Shakeel still repeats in mindless chants

"Tell all those who oppose me, I have a sword, you can surely see

so submit and follow me... or you will simply cease to be.

Death to you, and Power to me!",

Dear Shakeel, now do you see?

To be absolutely clear about this...

literally, islam means "submission"... figuratively, islam means precisely the opposite of love and peace.

Good luck man!... try visiting faithfreedom.org. May you find true love and real peace!

Submitting....
