Do you know WikiIslam ?

Do you know WikiIslam ?
WikiIslam is a website that is an encyclopedia about Islam.
It is critical about this religion. Critics are based from Islamic texts and contemporary researches.
I think this site is an useful resource for those interested about Islam and want to access to a non Islamic point of view.

Quite biased, anti-Islam and very Islamophobic:

I said it is a good site. I didn't said it is an excellent one.

We can see it does lack resources about alternative interpretations of Islam.
Content is mainly based on traditional Sunni views (I know Sunni Islam isn't one united block but composed of many branches like Hanbalism , Hannafism , Malikism etc... with subbranches. I know you won't find two Muslims in the world with exactly the same beliefs like in all religions in which you won't find two believers with the same beliefs) but traditional is more common than alternatives visions.

We can regret the fact there are only few items about conceptions of Islam perceived as heterodox.

Traditional doesn't means you're extremist (Not forget a person can be an extremist even if not violent or / and in favor of violence) or moderate because we can find extremists and moderates in any traditional vision.
What is an extremist ? To define who is an extremist and who is not we must see the norms of the society in which the person live.
In country A the person can be perceived as an extremist. In country B the person can be perceived as a moderate.

Islam is yet another bovine superstition from antiquity that holds back human progress. Why on earth should I need some further biased interpretation of same?

Well, these branches don't disagree on fundamental aspects of faith like God's attributes (a unique supreme being, in contrast to the doctrine of trinity, for example)  or Muhammad's status as the last prophet to humanity.. they only differ on very technical aspects of fiqh' - how the Islamic law as revealed to Muhammad should be interpreted and applied -.

This website is nothing more than a compilation of outdated anti-Islam themes, let me save you some time and present them all:

- The Islamic prophet's actions, biography, marriages, etc.
- The killing of the Banu Qurayza (a Jewish tribe), presented in an attempt to depict Muhammad PBUH and his companions as mass murderers.
- Attempts to find scientific errors in the Qur'an [News flash : there are none]
- Attempts to find linguistic errors in the Qur'an, this is the most stupid theme imaginable, as the Qur'an is actually regarded as a reference of Arabic grammar, and the finiest text in Classical Arabic.
- Belittling supernatural elements of Islamic faith: jinns, angels, the Buraq' creature, etc.
- Attempts to find logical inconsistencies in authentic hadiths.
- Islam's views on women.
- The concept of Jihad.
- Enforcing Sharia's law against homosexuals, fornicators, apostates, etc.

All of these themes have been discussed endlessly since the dawn of Islam some fourteen centuries ago. What should be kept in mind here is that it's all mostly christian polemics, and christians never succeeded in an argument involving any of these themes because of the extremely violent injunctions found in the Old Testament, whatever they bring from the Qur'an and try to present it as unfair/violent, all one has to do is to bring a similar(or more violent) statement from their own holy book to refute their point. An atheist or an agnostic should be more concerned with the issue of the existence of God than some internal aspect of some religion. It's critical that one accepts the premise of a just God existing before moving on to evaluate organized religions.

Update: the website IS NOT based on contemporary research NOR authentic islamic references. After searching several entries in the website I found many references to the famous biography of Ibn Hisham, which includes many weak and even fabricated hadiths.

If Islam inherently holds back progress, how do you explain this ?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_Golden_Age
Qur'anic revelation is the sole path to ultimate reality. All argumentation and philosophy is an expression of arrogance and an overestimation of human cognitive ability. 

"But believe me, Cleanthes, the most natural feeling that a well-disposed mind will have on this occasion is a longing desire and expectation that God will be pleased to remove or at least to lessen this profound ignorance, by giving mankind some particular revelation, revealing the nature, attributes, and operations of the divine object of our faith." (Hume's Dialogues)
