in response to reader comment: Not so easy...

Dear Drew,

I totally agree that living as a religious person is not easy. Although we discuss details about our religions many people around us are not so religious or ignorant. Some of them are unbelievers. I personally don't judge my friends. I accept them as they are. I don't talk about religion unles they want to do so. I can't share all their activities. Because I don't drink. But they can drink when they are with me. They drink beer I drink water. No need to isolate ourselves from our friends. I am an example of an religious person for them. I like my role. At least they know someone to talk about religion. That's enough for me.

Why should I be hostile to you? We just talk and share our knowledge and experience.

You wrote that "Also, regarding the eyewitness testimony of the followers of Mohammed, if you can count that as good proof, then the testimony of those who saw Christ resurrected and ascend into heaven surely cannot be discounted, don't you think?" Quran says Jesus didn't die on the cross. It was seen so. It is not a suprise for me if some saw Jesus after brutal crucification.

All religious books are also historical books. Quran is the holly book describing the birth of a new religion and civilization. I am against trinity. What kind of archelogical evidence do you know about a God-man? What can prove that a man can be God-man?

Thank you for your kind words about my attitudes.
