All religions have darker side and fanatic followers. Islam has more of it-we all know that.

But what worries me is the level of brainwashing in Muslim society.

# Most of them, including some of their scientists believe Quran revealed science !!!! Academicians and top scientists have warned and criticized very harshly against such criminal dilution of science-because none of the holy texts have any experimental results recorded and without any experimental result, there is no domain of science. Most of the Muslim scientists are so poorly trained in philosophy of science, they believe Quran has 'science' revealed in it. To what extent somebody has to lose his head and sense to believe in such trash??

# There are 500 verses in Quran against non-Muslims-none of the Muslims who believe in greatness of Quran can not even read one of them? This clearly shows they are in self denial mode and anybody who is peaking highly of Quran has to be a liar and hypocrit.

# Even with all the darkness in Quran, it does have beautiful poetic narratives -because it has been written by 20 authors and some of them were wise poets. Muslim spiritual leaders like Jalaluddin Rumi and Khalil Jibran found exllenent beauty and universalism in Quran--which is really good that they have extracted best out of Quran--most of the Muslims do not follow them--instead they are chasing after vodo science discovery in Quran to prove its authenticity from Allah!!

Muslims must understand Quran can be interpreted in thousands of ways-and by Islam, people do not read Quran but how Muslims behaves. If Muslims resort to dishonesty and lies (like science in Quran)-they are making Islam more vulgar and ugly. Instead they should look for beauty in Quran as Jibran found it and they can follow the universalism of Jalaluddin Rumi to live in harmony with other faiths.
