in response to reader comment: Did Prophet Mohammad Exist ?

... just becuase Islam forbids pictures of Muhammad does not mean he does not exist. I do not have a picture of my grandfather or any earlier members of my family does that now mean they do not exist?? How about people from 2,000 years ago there aren't any pictures of them so does that mean they too do not exist?? As for intelligent people leaving Islam, there are more intelligent people who are Muslim and living by Islam, so do they now out weigh those intelligent people who have left Islam?? Thirdly, the punishments that Islam orders upon criminals, you may find them barbaric but look at the socities we live in and the communties we have created with the liberal laws that we have. Most people feel unsafe in their communities becuase crimininals and crime is rampant. This is a product of liberalism and freedom. Lastly, the most educated people in Islam were the wives and daughters of the Prophet Muhamamd. They are the people who taught the rest of the Muslims including the 4 main scholars in Islam. They are the main source of the prophet Muhammad's life, his saying, teachings and actions. By the way, the women in the west fair no better then women in general around the world. Look at your statistics on domestic violence, rape, run aways, teenage pregnancies, etc... you really are a model society for the rest of the world to emulate.
