Dr. Pipes --

Quite impressive! If any of your readers would like to parse the Tahafut at-Tahafut, they can find it on the web, here: http://www.muslimphilosophy.com/ir/tt/tt-all.htm

That you parsed it and made it your thesis is all the more impressive. Do you think that rationalism and scholasticism can ever become mainstream in the Muslim world? It has a better likelihood of making sense to Westerners than the current hardline views.
