You seem like a willing defender of the religion of peace. Would you care to comment on my reflections on Islam entitled "To Tariq, Harrak:" posted on Apr 5 in this same comment stream? I asked many questions and provided a lot of reflections on Islam in that note, but haven't heard from either Tariq or Harrak yet.

Surely, you have enough courage and pride to mount a better defense of the religion of peace than Harrak's "At least he did not kill them!"

It truly fascinates me how people justify their religious convictions. I'm studying astronomy/astrophysics, but if I thought I could discover anything coherent about the subject, I would switch to studying the psychology of religious belief. But understanding the physics of black holes is vastly simpler for me than understanding Muslims' faith in Mohammad. Go ahead, read my post and enlighten me.
