That is utter nonsense. Islam is growing because they are having lots of children, not through conversion. I have read the Koran and I find nothing particularly enlightening in it. In fact it is so full of obvious inaccuracies that it is hard to believe people take it seriously. The trinity has nothing to do with Mary, though Mohammad thought it did, which is very odd if he was actually hearing angels. Also the world isn't flat, although supposdly Gabriel told Mohammad it was. Also Islam is much too violent. Why would an absolute god need people to wage Jihad for him? It's obviously a cover so the Arabs can build an empire. Also, if the Koran is the revealed word of some god, why does it shift so often to conform to whatever Mohammad happened to want to do at the time?

As far as understanding the Most Holy Trinity, do you claim to understand Allah? Part of the beauty is the mystery is it not? Christ told us to spread the good word as well. He did not tell us to kill, plunder and maim in his name. Unfortunately Mohammad did. Personally, I could never worship the moon god of Arabia, I believe his name is Allah. And by the way, if the idea of Christ bothers you perhaps you shopuld look into the history of Allah who also had offspring. I believe he had three daughters all of whom became goddesses. Also, while I'm thinking about it, Muslims rant on and on about idol worship, but they venerate a rock in Mecca! Doesn't that smack of idol worship?

There are currently 14 conflicts raging in the world and all of them involve Muslims on the atack against other religions. Is this a fluke or is there something very dark and evil at the heart and soul of Islam?

It's true I do not care for Islam, but I do not go about killing Muslims and I actually pray for them. Hopefully they will come into the light at some point.
