Islam is so afraid of the truth, it threatens death for questioning. You may mock people's idols and rituals, but these ancient religions that you mock, such as Hinduism, ancient Greek, Egyptian, Zorastrian are philosophically much stronger, than modern Islam. Your people live in darkness, and repression, enforced through fear and violence. It is no way to live. Humanity lived for thousands of years before Islam in an advanced state, and will live for thousands of years after Islam disappears due to its hateful nature. Once the world is enlightened, they will forsake the slavery of the mind that Islam offers, everyone is a clone under blackness, marching lockstep, life is lived waiting for death.

They teach so much hate, always wanting to destroy and conquer to self perpetuate. Why I say? Liberate yourself, God gave mankind a brain to be free thinkers, not slaves, use it. That is what separates us from animals. And the comments on idols? You must understand that the ancient religions began far before the majority of mankind was literate. They spread the message through symbolism and stories. And that is ok. Islam prays toward a black meteorite in the sand? What is that about? Islam bans art with animal and human forms, some of Gods greatest creation. Why? Are they afraid they will become them? Why not embrace them? Islam is a religion with no joy, no laughter, why even live?
