You know what your real problem Miohammed is? You are out of focus. And your posts betrays your abilities to critically examine an issue. And why is that Mohammed?

Now, I'm glad to know that you are no Pakistani who knows no Arabic and tries to push the religion of the Arabs imperialism and all. And now I know that I can explain to you more than the likes of Nuray would ever understand.

I do not defend any religion and I'm not a Christian although I do think that the teachings of the Buddha and the Christ are very profound.

The Qur'an, and I repeat, is poor literature. It has interesting passages that are very poetic (eg: Surat al-Nijm or if you wish surat al-Negm) but you or I can write poetry and may be even better than that. It also has ugly stuff in it as in :iqtolo al-Mushrikeen (Q:4). Or the worst from my point of view is: "Qatilo alladhina layu'minoon billah" You Allah is asking you to go out ang fight the rest of humanity because they do not believe that there is a god called Allah and do not believe Muhammd either. What a needy deity! I suspect that you would not do that Mohammed because you sound like a decent man, lost but decent. If Allah is such a powerful deity why did he not change our minds long time ago, he can do that, and made us all Muslims? Do you know why this never happend Mohammed? Becuase Allah is a fake god.

Muhammad plagiarized the literature of the Greeks and the Syriac speakers, and called it the words of his allah. Take the case of the story of Dhul Quarnain (this is plagiarized from the Greek story, via Syriac, of : The Romance of Alexander) and ahl al-Kahf which is plagiarized from the Syriac/Greek story of the "Seven sleepers of Ephesus" So much for the word of God. The Qur'an is full of embarrasing mistakes as in calling Mary the sister of Moses or that the Christian Trinity is: The God head, Jesus and Mary. The Qur'an is full of words that are not even Arabic words (see Suyuti: Itiqan and Ghareeb al-Qur'an) so when was the last time that you Mohammed used the words ababeel or sijeel ( or as I suspect that you would pronounce it as segeel) in a sentence? Let me guess! Never!...

Now, as for the New Testament (al-'Ahd al-Jigeed if you know Arabic) historians tell us that the four canonical gospels (synoptic) were written starting in the year 40 CE which is not very long after the death of the Christ. We do have extensive biblical fragments availabe in papyri that comes to us from the town of Oxyrhyncus in Upper Egypt (todays Bahr Yussef and not very far from Bani Sueff) and they can be dated to the early second century CE. You need to read some good and scholarly work Mohammed, because your knowledge is very defective.

As for the Qur'an: How do you explain that the name of Muahmmad or the word Islam or muslimeen or Qur'an do not appear in the extant Arabic sources for 72 years after his death? And how do you expalin that those early invading Arabs in 635 CE called themselves al-Muhajeroon and not Arabs or Muslims? And as I suspect that you might be Egyptian how do you explain that the papyri that come to us from Egypt, and there is plenty of them, we hear of no Muhammed or Qur'an or even Islam for the first 72 years after his death? As for the Qur'an: the earliest dated and complete copy is circa 3 rd century (this is confirmed by the fact that the Muslim masora is a tafseer/ta'weel of the 3rd cetury and not any earlier). You need to read Mohammed. Iqra'....iqra'.

Now back to the sex thing: Mohammed: it is not the way we dress that matters, or if we are virgins or not this is all style. What matters is substance it is the way we care for others and the less fortunate than we are. Did it ever cross your mind why do you have to pray? And why is your Allah that needy? And why any deity would be that needy?

I have been told that: "al-muhajjabat kuluhum muharwaqeen" and many resort to anal sex or oral sex so they can continue to be virgins! Pathetic indeed. So much for virginity.

Teach your kids to be good, and they will be good. Teach your children about sex and that it is OK to say no, teach them about drugs and that you do not need them. You are a parent and you can change things. Allah? Do not even depend on him because he is no deity.

.Go back wher you came from Mohammed. But I hate to disappoint you, you will never be able to fit there again, because the infidels have touched your heart otherwise you would not have been here. And yes Iqra'.
