Yes, you keep saying that over and over again
but you failed in presenting concrete proof.
It's like saying a rock is not a rock just because you say it isn't so.

No one said anything about "at least "not that
bad" because others do it"
It has been compared to SPELL OUT TO YOU that if domestic violence is
rampant in cultures which do not have the Quran, then there MUST BE OTHER REASONS
behind domestic violence and it takes very little open-mindedness to
apply the same reasons to Muslims who beat their wives instead of blaming it
on their religion.

No different from the Quran? Yes!! You keep saying
that!!! Frankly, we're
growing kind of tired of the persistant droning. Now if you would please
show us the same things you blame the Bible for having, is also present
in the Quran! Your site exposes the contradictions and inconsistencies
in the Bible so please show us the same thing in The Quran.
Once again you have failed to substantiate any
of the things you have claimed.
aren't u committing the act of believing in hearsay as well since you
yourself can't produce evidance.
>>The same has been said of the Bible long before
a man (or
>>men)sat down and made up the religion of Islam.
when was this? more than 1400 yrs ago? YES the
Bible WAS at one point the
word of God but in case you don't know, there is not a single copy
of the original Bible today. The Bible has been distorted by man, hence, you
see the high level of inconsistencies and contradictions.
If both books are written by a man, why don't
YOU produce anything like it?
Can you? Would you have been able to declare these scientific facts 1400
yrs ago. Your girlfriend said, "There are 1000s probably more than that, books
today which are devoid of any mistakes and inconsistencies." When I asked
her to produce one, she didn't even reply to my message!!
I refer you to two URLs.
The work of man?
>Other minor issues abound. Baptism by sprinkling or dunking? Hijaab
>and women? Who cares? It is all so much blah, blah, blah, yada, yada, yada.
>Does it bring you closer to God?

As Sarah mentioned, we're not terrorists who are
out to mail bomb you. We had a good
laugh about that when it came to the other Wiccan who made a complete fool of herself too.
But if you would like to be not involved in anything like this, DON'T REPLY! Very simple,
it's called DO IT YOURSELF. As long as you reply, I take it that you are looking
for a discussion and I will reply to you.

Actually, some of us were having quite a bit of
fun thank you :)
