Dear Dr Pipes, your very wise reader 'PLain Truth Ahmed' in his above posting very assertively told us that Allah sent Muhammad to eradicate the statues of Lott and Ozza and 366 other statues in Kaaba. Can this wise reader tell us why would a merciful Allah hate some statues so much that he would send a prophet to destroy those on Kaaba.

I would appreciate if 'PLain Truth Ahmed' answers this question to me, to other readers of this site and to himself with reason and not by relying on circular reasoning like Allah said so and Kuran said so and Muhammad said so etc.

We would just like to know why an all powerful Allah will hate some measly statues so much.

Submitting....
