You're projecting only your vision of life and failing to see my point

That's what you think.

I have no trouble believing that the Qur'an is, indeed, the Word of God. The words themselves, their impact on human history, the origins of the Qur'an, and Muhammad...I'm not frustrated about any of this, and I have no doubts whatsoever regarding them.

It is YOU, my friend, who is frustrated that you are unable to convince me otherwise. How do you know what books I've read? I was raised in a Christian atmosphere and studied the Bible. I went to a Christian college. And although I continued to remain unconvinced with regard to the "divine" nature of Jesus, my political beliefs did undergo a radical change...from moderate left to far right (American).

So if you're comfortable in your views of God, the universe, spiritual conciousness, and whatever other deities that you wish to believe in, then you should be happy and content and leave everyone else who doesn't agree with you alone. As for me, I couldn't care less if you believed in the Easter Bunny or in the Korean-American goddess of cyberspace. But when it comes to Islam, you seem to know only what you want to know and hear, which sounds like you're afraid to investigate further and/or be proven wrong in your beliefs. Either way, I am strong, happy and perfectly at ease in my beliefs. It is you who isn't in yours, obviously, which is why you would say the thingsthat you did earlier.

Happy mind-scrambling!!
