The weakest link of Islam is that it contradicts human nature

Reader comment on item: Israel's Partial Victory
in response to reader comment: On Muslims Killing Hindus

Dear Readers, I think the weakest link of Islam is that it contradicts human nature. All humans like freedom. Islam curbs it. People like universal love. Islam compartmentalizes it. People feel ingratiated when they take collective decisions. Islam is antithetical to democracy. I can go on and on. But, the biggest proof that Islam is anti human nature is that it has to invent a system as cruel as the Sharia to control people.

That is why I think Islam can be changed by non-Muslims from the outside. If we can make Muslims study Music, philosophy, logic, physics, math, or literature, we can change Islam. For crying out loud, if we can just make them read, we can change Islam. I even think that if we can make Muslims read translations of the Quran without jumping pages, we can change Islam.

We just need to confidently speak the polite truth and believe in our continuously evolving thought more confidently.

Did any Muslim read what I just said? If even one did, I made a dent.
