Important thing is: no violence or dictatorship in the name of any god.

you forgot to mention cruelty in the name of one of the thousands of gods you favor. very recently an elderly hindu couple in india acted on advice of a hindu priest and sacrificed to kali, a hindu boy four or five years old. the boy was lured into the house and subjected to a painful death, first by cutting his nose, then later ears, and then fingers...chopped to a slow death.

your talk of hair cuts make you sound stale. but i am sure you deem these comments to be very inteligent and witty.

what you need is clear head and think things through. if you say god is man's invention then what do you mean you believe in revealation?

islam is liberating. it gives you the confidence to trust yourself to know the truth when you see it.
