Dear Mr. Ali Sina,
As an independent mind myself I
read your website with interest. I do understand your subject as well as
your problem, but not sure what you are trying to achieve here.
Mr. Sina, you have high
intellect and I am sure you realize that belief and will to believe is a
complex human nature. They are independent of reason, rationale, logic or
facts. 'Men of belief' can be destroyed for their dogmas or religion by
they cannot be defeated. Look at the history in different time and space.
Mysteries, paradoxes and unfathomable truths exist in all religions. So
what, the belief and will of belief in its truth or falsehood is the basis
of belief. Faith without reason or reason without faith are second thought
arguments for those who lag behind in their belief.
Development of natural sciences
and advancement of human mind was a natural process that gradually
shattered irrational dogmas and man reconciled their belief with liberal
synthesis and empirical knowledge. Not every Muslim, Jew or Christian has
the same religious orthodoxy as it was in the past. And the process
continues. There are ongoing positive changes in human intellect brought
about by invisible natural forces.
Your website FaithFreedom thus
a mere reflection of yourself. It cannot take the place of natural process
that performed the transformation of, for example ape to Ali Sina. And it
is yet to evolve beyond. The different articles posted by you and other
authors on your website is a reflection of the process but not the process
Religion is embodied in human
nature and it cannot be metamorphosized at once by individual
intervention. There is no such possibility. Why do you think it is
possible to reverse the Islamic or Christian process with narrow
engagement of piece meal debate in the comfort of a website. I understand
your health reason not to join the live congregation of the believers. You
lose either way. I do not also see any merit in engaging Zakir Naik,
Ayatullahs or Imams. For they may be minuscule part of belief force. Who
will tell you that they lost and you won the debate and vice versa? This
is not nature that I am trying to emphasize to you. If you want to
experience nature's force try and exhibit your feat in
or anywhere else. Rest is all endeavour and entertainment. Dr. Samuel
Johnson wrote: shams and delusions are esteemed for the soundest truth
while reality is fabulous. The reality is that even you chose to do so,
you cannot be against any human belief, because then you are like against
natural forces like gravity, thrust or forces. As I can see your
frustration and thus snobbery that is too prone in your writing.
Mr. Ali, I know you are a busy
person. But if you will I can take some of your major posted on website
and explain that you have a misplaced vision and mission.
Afterall you are a human being
nature does not permit you to lift both your legs simultaneously at one
time. So try to understand yourself and your subject because itís not a
matter of Islam or no Islam. There is third dimension to it.
