Yes, I did read the whole bible. Several times in several translation and editions.

Great! You didn't read the Quran though, and you seem to not believe in Allah, why?

Anyway, do you have an answer to the OP?

No, the same way I didn't read the Torah either. So I don't judge any entire religious community by their respective holy books. I only judge the radicals by their deeds. Everything else would be just talking out of the ass.

And do you really ask, why I don't believe in Allah? For the same reason I don't believe in Jesus or the jewish god, Odin or any other god you can imagine.

How DARE you make a judgment on Allah without reading the entire Quran? And the radicals are the TRUE believers, the TRUE fundamentals. Christian fundamentals are taking away abortions, while Muslim fundamentals are performing 99% of terrorism.

Anyway, do you have an answer to the OP?

RE: Regressive Straw Man
The better question would be, do you want to answer the OP?

To which I respond with a clear no, since it doesn't seem worth the effort. That's the same way I handle every loaded question by the way.

@OP: I don't get it.

Who exactly is saying that people do say this? People on this forum, or what?

Of course I want an answer. I jump at every opportunity to change my mind. If there is evidence for something, then I should believe it, right?

Effort? Why would it require effort? You think that if Islamophobes wanted their messages heard, they would put it out there.

Probably wouldn't take much effort to find more.
But Christians believe that Jesus came down to abolish that law, and Muslims believe that the law is still standing. Have you ever heard of Shria Law???
So... any answer to the OP?

Actually Jesus said he came to fulfill the Law... Ups!

Holy books are merely books, they can be used for any imaginable purpose - You don't need to take every part of the Quran seriously to be a Muslim, in fact you don't even need to read the Quran.

Are you trying to make some point to make you look special?

What happens to my hunger if I fulfill it. IT GOES AWAY.
