well lets think about this. we are living in a modern world. where we all try to fulfill our own desires and needs by not harming others. Prophet Mohammad must have been right at that time. but hello! conditions, society and all the other things have changed. it is ridiculous to stick to old rules. and moreover, a book don't have to tell me what i will do. those are just supposed to be guidelines for us and not rules as the muslim world take them as.

so just go for good education as i think only education make us human.
