"Ian, I challenge you to prove that I am ignorant of quran/Islam and was never a muslim"
Why don't you challenge yourself and prove it otherwise?

"It appears that you are an uninformed muslim or some one converted to islam by typically sanitized teachings"
Your presumptions are baseless

"I challenge you to debate with me here and prove that :
-I do not have understanding of islam or Quran.
-I was never a muslim."
I dismiss your challenge as I don't need to debate with you or prove you anything.

Rest of your passage looks like a collection of copy-pastes from some google search and doesn't prove (or disprove) anything.

At this point, after skimming through what you have written, honestly, I am least interested in continuing this thread. My intention was to initiate an intelligent (or at least semi-intelligent) exchange of ideas, but I foresee only unintelligent rambling here and that's that last thing I would like to do. With the kind of arguments you make, it doesn't make a difference whether you are a muslim or a non-muslim. "Religious conversion" is so hyped that I don't buy it anymore.

Ciao
