Comments on atheistic Arabs article. Jews and Arabs who ask themselves questions

Reader comment on item: Atheism among Muslims Is "Spreading Like Wildfire"

Submitted by Steven Ross (United States), Sep 23, 2021 at 13:52

Apart from atheism, I bet many Muslims and many Jews doubt Islam and Judaism. I am a bad Jew in that I believe that the universe is nearly 14 billion years old, Earth is about a billion years old, there were dinosaurs, and people and apes evolved from an earlier form of primate. In my neighborhood, this is unacceptable. Hashem made dinosaur bones and tracks to test our faith or for some other reason and Earth is about 5800 years old. If you do not believe that, then you do not believe the words given to us in the Torah and spoken by Hashem. How do you, Mr. Daniel Pipes, deal with that personally? Do you believe that Aaron's staff popped into a snake? Judaism is not unique. I would not be surprised if many Muslims doubt the Koran.

Changing the subject a bit, it was wrong of us to think that we could change the primitive tribal society of Afghanistan. However, I for one think it was much worse for us to abandon the girls and women of Afghanistan to the Taliban. The USA, Israel and the rest of the world should have established secular schools there to give people a chance.

Completely changing the subject, I worry that since progressive Democrats are largely, or are ruled by, Jew-haters and Israel-haters, Israel cannot rely on the USA, and so will turn to China, even though the CCP is the worst threat to humanity since Hitler and his Nazis. My thoughts are not profound. I hope that they do to waste the time of you and your followers. I am concerned, though, about the relationship between Israel and the CCP. People (especially Jews) should have banned business with Hitler's Germany and yet we all are over our heads in business with China as the CCP continues to perpetrate ruthless genocide against Tibetans and others, crush liberty in Hong Kong, threaten Taiwan, lie, cheat, and steal, possibly purposely develop and release COVID-19 and other crimes against nature and humanity. Thank you for your consideration.

Daniel Pipes replies:

Few modern believers take those stories literally.

I agree that Israel is too cozy with the CCP.
