To "Infidel":

You can read a million translations of the Qur'an and still not make any sense, because you obviously like to pick out what you agree with and leave out the rest. You are anything but an objective researcher.

So Qur'an 2:106 talks about "abrogation". But does it say specifically which parts of the Qur'an, if any, were abrogated? And you've proven my point...you ignored all of the other Ayas that I quoted. I knew you would...you're so damn predictable. However, I'm not going to repeat those Ayas here.

I know that there were certain passages revealed to Muhammad that were ultimately left out of the Qur'an, some of which supposedly were not even from God. I believe that if God had caused any of His revelations to be abrogated, they wouldn't have been included in the final text of the Qur'an under the direction of the 3rd caliph Uthman. It seems to me that to you, Sura 9 abrogates all other parts of the Qur'an. Sheesh...

And you still haven't answered my question: IF YOUR RELIGION IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN MINE, WHAT THE HECK IS IT? I WANT TO KNOW!!! You suggested that I read different translations of the Bible. Actually, I have read several parts of the Bible over many years and found it to be far more violent, intolerant and anti-Semitic than the Qur'an when it is taken literally. So I guess Islam, Judaism and Christianity are all out.
