Thanks, Jaladhi, for your comments.

Islam adds no value to humanity and has not progressed ever. Humanity has progressed since then. If we ponder back to our history, as far as 4000 years of documented history, slavery was abolished not too long ago. The Americans went to a civil war to end theirs. Women rights and the journey of equality happened in our fathers' time. Not without strife. Polygamy is losing its grip in all educated society. Sure, prostitution and affairs continue to exit. But then, we don't have mu'ta marriages. The rule of law for everyone under the sun is being largely practiced in western society and being sought in other countries.

What has Islam brought to the table? Please don't start on your "golden age" some centuries ago about how muslims invented the number zero and gunpowder. Much borrowed Greek knowledge, scientists from conquered lands were doing all the work. No intellectual from Arabs themselves. A false religion perpertrate falseness into society. Islam today contribute nothing to society except suicide bombing, genital mutilation, honor killing, beheadings, violent street protests, Of course, of course, other societal groups also contribute to these but Islam has successful create brand positioning. Think honor killing, think Islam. Someone was beheaded? Islam is the answer to everything.

Look at the signs of falseness:

1.0 If God, the almighty creator, wants women to cover their beauty from society, He would have not given them beauty and create a large skin fold to cover their faces.

2.0 No God would be so vengefull in punishing people for "sex-related" crimes, such as close proximity, fornification, and many others (except pedophilia - since Mohammed had sex with 9-year old Ayesha), and then rewards His faithful with 72 perpetual virgins and a stiff instrument to enjoy.

3.0 If God is so ever-present, His worshippers do not need to ensure the right timing and the right direction to pray. 5 times a day. Oh, come on.

The list is too long and I'm running out of time here.
