Who says Muhammad has been selected? He "selected" himself. There are no witnesses to his "encounters" with the angel Gabriel.

Life is change and so must religion change because we are becoming more knowledgeable about everything all the time. If Muslims insist to follow a 7th century egomaniac's rules, that's their problem but don't force your beliefs on others. Society does not want to change? Well society changes all the time and society realizes the stupid rules of antiquated religious beliefs. "Premaritial affairs, adultury, sodomy, alcoholism and all evil activities" have nothing to do with this. Eventually people realize the bad effects of certain behaviours and look for ways to reverse them.

Whatfundamentals is Islam calling the people back to? Just like all the other religions, Muslims cannot even agree among themselves.

How can you control adultery? Why does it need "controlling". Muslims only look at the worst examples of Western society. There has never any adultery taken place in my marriage (1 husband, 1 wife not wives) and the same goes for hundreds of thousands of other marriages. How you see a body is in the mind of the beholder. To BLAME the OTHER is ridiculous. If you want to talk about God, he created the body. So what's wrong with it? A beautiful body is a visual delight, no different from artwork, which it is.

Point point point at the schools in the USA. Yes, we all wish there were only good boys and girls. And yes, we wish there were no drugs and gangs etc. I'd say that we are going through a learning experience as to what works and what doesn't. CONTROL of the kind you are talking about does NOT work.

Generation after generation has come up with your idea of Sodom and Gomorah but we're still standing.

Will Islam rule the world? NO, NEVER Nature loves variety and diversity. God would find monotony as abhorrent as most of us do
