No offence taken, Adib. The concept of the Holy Trinity is rather a complicated one to explain and many don't fully understand it. This is quite understandable as Christians regard God as being omnipotent and therefore capable of anything. A God that could be fully explained and understood by man obviously wouldn't be much of a God! Judging by some of the postings by others who also question this concept, and whose interest seems a little more 'machievelian' than your own, it would appear that the concept of omnipotence is limited to the Jewish and Christian faiths. This is a little strange as 'omnipotence' is the key definition that describes God to us. To make matters even more complicated for you, Christians also believe that God can be EVERYWHERE at the SAME TIME! Get your head around that!

However, I think you'll find that few Christians will want to get drawn into a debate on the theological definition of religious concepts in Christianity as Christianity doesn't have a great deal to do with the situation that we are discussing. The debate centres around the conflict between the Muslim faith and Western secularism. Christianity has very little to do with the subject other than it's historical impact on the development of our cultures vis a vis The Reformation four hundred years ago.
