in response to reader comment: Deep Human need to suppress the truth

If one thing that this observer has taken away in studying in this forum the multiple attitudes of Muslim influences in a world that still does not know how to deal with Islam from its advertized source; it is that there is no common sense that one source can be pointed to and everyone agree it is the true basis of Islamic belief. Were that true, there would be consensus amongs the variant practices; and there is no such appreciation.
From this observer's perspective, the one thing learned from Dr. Pipes is that Islam has its facets, that dependent upon when one thinks its writings got started, when they were translated from the self defined Aramaic roots and alleged absorption of Judeo-Christian influences for its description as a replacement of Hebrew Scriptures (presuming those influences in self-contained references are true), one cannot help but think there can be no common 'tradition' of belief and that the variant forms are necessary for each of the following adherents since the Arabic version so commonly called the original cannot be uniquely defined.
Dr. PIpes?
