in response to reader comment: KORAN ENCOURAGING CONSPIRACY THEORIES ? UMM, AGAIN SUPERFICIAL

I never said that kuran alone is the source or cause of conspiracy theories. Islam teaches muslims that they are a separate, superior and supremacy-entitled supra-nation and thus encourages all kinds of self-justifications and self-glorifications among muslims. If a muslim commits a crime them his fellow muslims declare that he was not a muslim, it cannot have been a muslim who did it. It is thus assumed that crimes are committed solely by non-muslims. This is the basis of every conspiracy theory - the criminals are always the other guys, our own are always noble, impeccable and god-chosen saints.

In your email you write much about the PAST, but let us concentrate on the furure and realize that presently it is islam that is bringing forth the most killers and angry violence-doers and catching and misleading children and youth into this criminality in the name of an arab god. The arabic-islamic god-concept is a fascist god-concept by the norms and standards of the 21st century. This can be demonstrated without making any recourse to any conspiracy theory. The actual situation and performance of islam and muslims TODAY proves this.

It is a crime to present faith as truth. Faith has to be presented as faith only, never as truth. Islam and muslims commit the crime of equating faith with truth. This leads to fascism, arrogance, violence and intolerance and then to conspiracy theories.

If a muslim says : "I believe there is only one god and Mohammad is his last prophet" then it is his good right to say so. But if he omits the words "I believe" then he becomes guilty of a crime, of the crime of presenting faith as truth, and thus of manipulating simple-minded human beings into a totalitarian, arrogant, intolerant, violence-prone ideology.
