Moderate Islam is not the solution The Anti-life is Evil: Religion is anti-human life:

Reader comment on item: Bolstering Moderate Muslims

Submitted by Ralph C Whaley MD (United States), Apr 17, 2007 at 09:24

Moderate Islam is not the solution. It is as deadly as moderate suicide. The essence of all religion is faith. All religious scholars agree. To live men must identify the nature of human life and the metaphysical requirements of that life. Sense perception evidence, processed by reason, is man's only means of discovering the nature of his life and what actions are required to preserve and promote his own life. Faith is belief in the absence of evidence and/or in controversion of evidence. Religion is anti-reason anti-mind and therefore anti-life.
