The Impending Fire of Earth's Destiny Under Islam-Who Will Stop It?

Reader comment on item: Interview: Islamism's War on the West

There are many ways one might approach differing scourges to humanity, even those that have long histories and deep rooted emplacements which permits recurrences and resurgences; appearing benign for just enough of a period of time until an advantage can be brought forth and release the pent up anger towards all things good, leading to ultimate destruction. Of such is Islam.

The majority of the world's history has taught this lesson and yet the resiliency of a suffering ideology appears to artificially coax a mindset that if the battle is fought to a certain point, then a victory is promised to those who have succumbed to an elixir that deceives a delusional world mindset; that a better day will arise tomorrow after the alignment of arrogant thought is achieved. Of such is Islam.

Here and elsewhere, there is the burgeoning philosophical argument raging on how to deal with a world lost in its own pretensions; that if pursued, seeks to quell all the other arguments against following along a path to destruction; that in its own argumentative nature if just one approach to the cessation of warfare could be established, then hostilities could be restrained and mankind could live with itself.

Unfortunately, there's a fatal flaw in that reasoning. The world has been in that tail chasing mode for most of its existence and the truth is that 'that utopia' cannot ever be achieved, not as long as humanity retained its innate desire of thinking it is in control of its own destiny. And that is the underlying truth to the matter: mankind has not yet and in its inherent nature will never be able to define its single purpose; not even in Islam.
