The main problem you have
(aswell as Ali Sina) is you compair the holy books to logic and
physics. You look at the Quran in a literal sense and take it so
literally that you try to make sense of it the same way you would
theorize about a certain scientifical facts.
fact of it is though, the Quran aswell as many other holy books are
not literal and they are spiritual. Without having the spiritual
part of the Quran, it looks like it looks to Ali Sina, and it is
done so on purpous.
In the Bible you donot
actually believe in dieing and going to heaven to get gold do you?
You dont believe in literally eating your young and the flesh off
jesus's bones and drinking his blood do you? These are all anologies,
just like the 72 virgins. No true Muslim believes that he/she
will go to heaven to have a massive orgy, the 72 virgin analogy
basically means that it will be a "good place".
All Ali Sina is doing is
a good job of taking the Quran out of spiritual context and
attempting to deface it infront of a scientifical community, the
same can be done witht he Torah and the Bible since holy books are
not literal and they are not practical or logical, they are
spiritual. It is very unfair to compair the atrocities committed by
a certain number of Muslims, to ALL Muslims. If I put a picture of
David Koresh, the Crusades, the Spanish Inquisition, the witch
burnings, the KKK, and the Christian snake worshipping tribes, you
would think Christians to be evil.
All Ali Sina does is
single out certain acts that were comitted by certain Muslims and
try to make it sound like it is a broad teaching of all Muslims,
that is misinformation.
As far as Muhammad being
a pedophile? The chronological clock of the people living in his
time were faster, also today we see this as Midde-Eastern genes
mature faster at an earlier age. If Muhammads wife was indeed 9-14
at time of marriage, according to the chronological clock of their
team, a 9 year old would be as mature was a 21 year old,
intellectually, physically, and in every other way. However there
was a catch since life expectancy was much shorter (30-40) hence
people aged faster. If Muhammad was presented with a 9 year old in
todays times, he would be appaled, because it would appear to be
maybe a 6moths/1 year
old in his time. Do you see where im going with this?
Your picturing Muhammad
with todays 9 year olds, that is wrong since the chronological
genetic clocks were different. A 9 year old in his time would be
much older and maturer than a 9 year old in our time. Years are not
permanent when you are looking at life expectancy and genetic
chronology. As far as the "radical" aspect of Islam, alot
of the Quran was written during a time of war when Muslims were
being persecuted and ran out of cities for their belief in one god.
You cannot compair certain scriptures written under-fire to todays
society as say living in a neighborhood. Most Muslims can discern
teachings written in a time of war and teachings written in a time
of peace, hence we Muslims can tell between the two.
Islam is a religion of
peace, and not all those who claim to be Muslim are perfect nor do
all Muslims represent every Muslim, the same goes for all religions.
