My name is A. E. (This ID remains
confidential at the request of the writer) and I'm originally from
"an Arab country" living now in, North America.
I am an ex-Muslim and came to know
about you from "Answering Islam" web site, since I came here
around a year ago I really enjoyed the free debate on those issues that
we have here in north America (and west Europe too).
I doubt that I can dedicate the time
or probably the money to purchase and read your book at the moment but
my area of interest is rational criticism of the Quran and its
contradictions, authenticity of Quran and its collection.
The way I see things is that Islam is
not only wrong but, has interfered in life details in a way that make it
impossible for Muslims to brake the circle of poverty, ignorance and
retadedness they are in now and forever if they don't open their eye and
see the truth, and modify or desert that religion.
The obvious weak points are:
The way they claim Quran was
The gap between the oldest copy of
Quran we have now and the date Muhammad died is 150 years.
Quran contradicts scientific facts
(among them-to the Muslims surprise-the way embryos
develops) and itself in many places.
Islam never ended slavery and
still has doors for it to come back.
Islam legislation doesn't provide
equal rights for human beings.
What makes things more annoying is
that (with the oil money that Muslim countries have) they're out there
using the freedom the west has given them to invite more people to Islam
and they simply use the fact that those poor Europeans don't speak or
read Arabic and never knew anything about Islam to present them with the
same lies they filled our brains with in the schools.
I still hope that at some stage of my
life I'll be able to dedicate my full time to study Islam and give a
knowledgeable criticism to it in a way that doesn't provoke or offend
Muslim but just open their eyes to the truth.
