Yamin Zakaria vs. Ali Sina
Back < > Next
Hello Mr. Yamin Zakaria
I will be glad to debate with you on Islam.
As for the payment after being defeated you must take me for my
word and if you donít, you are not required to debate. One thing I can
assure you of is that I am not a gambler. If I had any doubt in my mind,
even as little as one in a billion chance of being wrong, I would not have
risked confronting a savage and unforgiving deity such as Allah and facing
the possibility of his eternal tortures. I had my share of doubts at
first, but as I read and I understood more those doubts dissipated and
when I started my Internet campaign six years ago, my conviction about the
fallacy of Islam was as certain as my conviction about the roundness of
So Mr. Zakaria, you donít have to be too concerned
about securing the money because you can bet your life that you are going
to lose this debate and I will prove once again that Muhammad was not a
prophet but a successful cult leader no different from Jim Jones or David
Koresh and much more cruel than Hitler.
Yes, I do have a better alternative to Islam but I am
not here to tell people what path they should choose. I leave that to them
to decide. Almost anything is better than Islam. All I want to tell them
is that Islam is dangerous and we must get rid of it soon or the world
will face a major catastrophe much worse than the Second World War.
Personally, I am a practitioner of the Golden Rule. The reason I oppose
Islam is because it is totally against the Golden Rule. Islam is wicked in
its core and it is destructive. I do not oppose Islam because it is false
but because it is evil. I have no problem with people who love to believe
in fairytales. But when their fairytale fills them with hatred of their
fellow humans and encourages them to shed the blood of the innocent
people, then I take the stance. That is not the kind of fairytale I can
tolerate nor I would accept your right to believe in it. You must end this
insanity and stop killing people or we will have to stop you.
No, I am not wealthy by any standard. The money I am
offering comes from the equity in my house. I have made this offer to get
your attention. This is to prove to the Muslims that the reason their
scholars shun me is not because they think what I say is not relevant or
not important but because they know they have no chance of winning the
debate with me. The fact that you have accepted this challenge is a good
harbinger of your honesty. I hope this honesty will assist you to see the
light and leave Islam.
However, I made a search with your name and read a
few passages of your articles and gave up on that illusion very soon. I am
afraid your heart is filled with Islamic hate and you have no regards for
truth, fairness, love and mankind. You have a very twisted sense of
morality and your entire articles do nothing but to provoke hate, justify
violence and divide mankind. You are indeed a true follower of Muhammad
and an enemy of humanity. Nonetheless, I consider debating with you
beneficial. I have no interest in you Sir. I am after my fellow humans who
erroneously think they are Muslims. Fortunately, they are the majority and
it is they whom I want to reach and help to make the leap from Islam to
humanity. By debating with you publicly, I
can make them see the stupidity of Islam and hopefully many would see the
light and leave this cult.
Yes Sir, I will maintain the level of decorum even if
you donít. In fact one way I win is to show my readers that Muslims
canít debate without resorting to ad hominem. Very few Muslims can
control the temptation of personal attacks. Those few who succeed have my
utter admiration and respect.
As for calling someone ďsubhumanĒ I have made it
clear that I do not consider those who behead people or target civilians
and engage in senseless acts of terror, humans. There are many verses of
the Quran that encourage the Muslims to engage in such savageries and
inhumane acts. Those who follow such teachings are not humans and we
should stop this stupid game of political correctness and call them as
such. They are savages. They are less than subhumans. They are monsters,
beasts and vampires. Our humanity is determined by our humanness and that
is in the strength of our soul, in our concern for our fellow beings, in
our care and love for mankind and not by our appearance. Can Hitler be
called human? How about his supporters who perpetrated those barbarities
and followed his orders? I do not know what is your answer to that but
mine is, NO! You can't be called a human if you have no humanity in you.
By the same token, neither Muhammad can be called a human nor those who
live by his mandates, kill, loot, rape, behead and butcher innocent human
beings targeting the most vulnerable and defenseless.
Do you have any problem with this definition? Do you
think this is a condition you canít accept? Are you demanding that I should drop such characterization before you engage in debate with me?
In that case you donít have to. Not only I will not retract, I actually
hope the entire world adopt this definition and denounce the Quran as a
barbarian book of terror and all those who follow its inhumane teachings
as a subhuman species. I want to end this damn political correctness ďlest we
hurt the sensibilitiesĒ of a bunch of thugs and terrorists. I want the
whole world call the spade a spade and stop this dangerously foolish game of
appeasement. If I considered Islam to be a humane religion why would
I oppose it?
So, do not see this as labeling but as a charge. If I
make such claim, I must be able to prove it and if you want me to withdraw
it you must be able to disprove it.
Let us make this a rule: Each one of us is free to
make any assumption that he pleases but he must be able to prove that
assumption or withdraw it. I think this is fair. This would give either
one of us the right to say whatever we want to say without any restriction, BUT we
must prove it or take it back. That is freedom of speech with
Youíll find that in the course of our debate I will
call Muhammad an assassin, a lecher, a rapist, a highway robber and many
other things. These are not insults. These are charges. It is up to me to
prove these charges or apologize for them and withdraw them. Once I prove
either one of these charges, you may want to attempt and disprove them or
plead no contest. We will go from topic to topic. I will lay the charges
on Muhammad and the Quran and present my proof. Then it is up to you to
rebut those charges. At the end we donít have to agree. It is up to our
readers to be the judge.
I will publish all our correspondence in my site. You
are free to do the same in yours. If you donít, our readers may
interpret this as your lack of confident in your ability to win this
debate. But it is entirely up to you to publish them or not. If
you don't have a site, send them to Al Jazeera who so often publish your
hate laden articles.
I trust you find these rules fair and equitable.
After all if my charges are nothing but libel, youíll be able to
demonstrate that. In that case I will remove that charge. If you can
disprove all the charges, you have my word that I will sell my house and
give you the money that I have promised. This is a public statement and I
am a quasi public figure known to a few million people. If I donít keep
my word, this would be the end of me. Furthermore, I will remove all the
pages of this site with the exception of the index page with a message
saying I have been proven wrong by Mr. Yamin Zakaria and to honor my word
this entire site has been removed. On the other hand, if you lose, you
donít have to do anything. You can continue digging your heel in your
ignorance and promote your hatemongering religion of terror and darkness.
So as you see, you have nothing to lose while I am risking everything. The
rules of this debate are totally in your favor, except for the fact
that you are standing on a very shaky ground of faith and conjecture and
are armed by an air gun that makes only noise, while I am standing on a
solid ground of facts and my logical gun is loaded with real ammunition.
In other words, you defend Islam from the position of belief and
irrationality and I attack it from the position of logics and truth.
If you agree to continue, please let me know and I
will bring my first charge against Muhammad.
