Dear Edward,

Yes, I repeat again and again saying that Muslims are 20% world population in order to remind people you criticize one of the great civilizations in the world. It is a historical reminder not a religious argument to convince people. Non-Muslims think that they can convert all Muslims to any other religious. This is not an achievable or realistic goal. Instead of getting along with other religious people they try to convince them their religion is baseless. This is hopeless. I want people to see this.

I don't ignore anything, how can I? Religion shapes your life, style, attitudes towards people, almost everything. We humans have only one chance to use our free will so that we can live in a way that we feel good. We have only one life not many. That means everyone should learn every bit of her/his religion in detail. This is very crucial decision. It is not a game.

Anyone who has common sense can see it but many don't. Let me explain. Non-Muslims websites, I think Ayesha is one of their subscribers, use Islamic material to convince Muslims Muhammed, peace upon him, did wrong. All those materials they used are belong to Muslim culture or society, written Arabian historians. Someone asking me about Mu'tazilah, which is a Islamic Scholar, existed 11 centuries ago. I have chosen this example to show you how they dig history of Islam. They don't introduce anything new to Muslims. All those information have been available to Muslims everywhere or at each century. Those arguments, allegations are known. Islam still exists.

I can write pages and pages to all those allegations. I have a better idea then this, I want to show people to see big pictures. If someone like you calls the acts of Muhammed, peace upon him, as " his crimes" it doesn't have any historical value to pay attention. Have you seen any biography of him using this kind of allegations? No. It is the way normal people who has no or enough knowledge about history and theology but just read what is written in non-Islamic websites, choose to express their views. Just tell me if I am wrong. Did you read full biography of Muhammed, peace upon him before? I don't think so.

By the way, If someone curious about theology and ask genuine questions about Islam, believe I don't miss it. I share all my knowledge with him/her. When I see some comments, even seems challenging, I don't pay attention if they are expressed aggressively.

Thank you for showing the difference between me and an ex-Muslim. She can only impress non-Muslims like non-Islamic websites does. Neither those websites nor ex-Muslims can reach heart of Muslims. My thoughts against them is just an example. But I prefer reading messages like yours who pleased by her story. Are you Muslim? No. That's good enough for me.
