Well slight corrections my dear harrak.

Deity: US dollar, Euro, Yen, English pound. Canadian dollar? No! At least the US dollar has more value than your deity. I frogot that you Muslims think more about your Allah's funny heaven and the 72 vrigins and or the ghulman! But wait; your Allah and his rasul were also into money after all your allah and his rasul get 1/5 of the booty collected from infidels!

Religion: Let us see your Allah and his rasul the Arabian warlord and caravan raider do not like polytheism so my religion is polytheistic. I pray to any statue that I can put my hands on. But again this is no different from Muhammad, the poor theologian, wanting Muslims to kiss an idol in the ka3bba called the black stone. There goes polytheism. How about syncretism? Well let me see I like Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Wicca, Christianity, Sikhism, Jainism, even Mormonism. Islam? No I do not do Islam! It is too viloent and flawed for me.

Prophets: I would add all the Greek philosophers the likes of Plato and Aristotle, from Judaism I would include the great Philo (remember the phylo and mytho?), Saadya Gaon and Maimonides. From Christianity I would include St. Augustine, Clement of Alexandria, Origen and for sure my favorite is St. Thomas Aquinas who wrote:

"Timeo hominem unius libri" Or Mankind be aware of the single book!

The smart man was more likely than not talking about the Qur'an. Compare him with sordid Muslims the likes of Ibn Taymiyya, Malik or Shaf3ee.

From Buddhism my prophets are the Buddha and the Dalai Lama. From Hinduism the great authors of the Hindu epics including the Gita. And from the secular world I include Homer for his "Iliad" and the "Odyssey", Virgil for his 'Aenid", and Fardawsi for his "Shahnemah."

Anything form Islam? Not a thing. Oh may be "3Ali baba wa al-arbi3een harami"

Et voila our dear harrak, who knows no Arabic, or Judeo-Arabic for this matter.

Oh, say Hi to our dear Mu3tamid al-jahil
