Reader comment on item: How to End Terrorism:
in response to reader comment: On Socratic solipsism or a modern Moslem

Submitted by phonetics (Indonesia), Dec 15, 2006 at 04:18

As a matter of fact I am a Moslem. A modern neo-Socratic Moslem, you know. I flush down or burn Qurans on regular bases inviting friends and relatives to contribute with their saliva. I take pictures of that , send the Quranic ashes to the Saudi embassy. I also distribute pork and bottles of wine -called "Solipsist's Wine" - to mosques and Islamic centres across the country. I profess a credo-quia-absurdum-Islam ! So to speak a neo-Socratic Islamism. I modernized Socrates' saying to please Allah , the supreme solispist ! I-know-I-know-everything and I-know -you-know-nothing Islam ! It's great! 100% correspondence with God and 0% correspondence with humans! I am sure you'll never reach so pure Islamic standards unless you join my modern Moslem faith !

> or do you now want the whole world to follow God and only your God and beliefs?

As a neo-Socratic Moslem I deny the existence of the whole world with the exception of the Supreme Solipsist! It would make things too complicated and our life unhappy if we as modern Moslems admitted its existence, wouldn't it ?

How do I sound, phonetics ? "Terrorist" and yet "not Islamic" ??? ... How can you call me a terrorist and at the same time not Islamic? I would be ashamed and dishonoured to terrorize without professing Islam!!!

> maybe Irish? last remnants of the IRA? hmmm... you've all forgotten about them haven't you?

Aren't they at their heart already Moslems? I mean Moslems by deed , not be name ?

> Or are they muslims too?

If they aren't they will become. We could convert them , couldn't we ?

For the "supercalifragilistic" style argument of solipsism: SALVE IANAE, AEGRII DIABOLII FACIUS ET TUM PODEX CARMEN EXTULIT HORRIDULUM... hmmm, perhaps I am too sophisticated for you to understand... IANus, oops, i mean IANAE...
