A Constructive Argument About Islam

Monday

An ex-Muslim atheist and an intellectual atheist argue about the connection between Islam's written ideology and the behaviors of ISIS, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, Hamas, etc. Are these groups merely following the Islamic texts to the letter? Or are they twisting and distorting Islamic teachings to justify their lust for power or horror?

This is a lively discussion between two people who are at odds with each other for most of the argument, and yet conduct themselves without yelling or name calling. This is a three hour conversation, but worth watching.

Like most people you talk to, the host of this show objects to the idea that Islamic doctrine is any worse than other religions, and he brings up pretty much every objection possible, and argues them vigorously. They are all answered sanely and articulately by Sam Harris.

Harris makes so many good points and uses so many good examples that this interview is worthy of not just watching, but studying. Check it out on InquiryIntoIslam.com here:

Sam Harris and Cenk Uygur Clear the Air on Religious Violence and Islam

This is also a great video to share with your atheist and agnostic friends. They may listen to Sam Harris discussing Islam when they might not listen to a Christian or Jew discussing Islam. They are likely to consider Harris a more credible source of information about religion because he hasn't "picked a side" — he hasn't chosen a favorite religion — so he has no ax to grind in that sense. He's a neutral and impartial evaluator of religions, and he has studied most of them. His educated conclusion is that Islam is a more dangerous ideology than any other mainstream religion.

Share this video and let Sam Harris enlighten your non-religious friends and family.

Neither an a real atheist nor a Christian the French philosopher, Voltaire did have some wisdom that may very well apply the this bizarre ,nonsensical and far-fetched Islamic doctrine of a paradise with many virgins, houris, in it for the Muslim who dies in the jihad for Islam. For knowledge of Voltaire applies to this strange, weird and outlandish Koranic doctrine, Sura 44:54. 55:56.78:31., which result in much murder and mayhem. For he wrote "As long as men believe in absurdities they will continue to commit atrocities."

One of the most unusual articles on CitizenWarrior.com is Pleasantville and Islamic Supremacism.

It illustrates the Islamic Supremacist vision by showing the similarity between what happened in the movie, Pleasantville, and what devout fundamentalist Muslims are trying to create in Islamic states like Syria, Pakistan, or Saudi Arabia (and ultimately everywhere in the world).
