What if God Exists?

Let reason be your guide. We all have been endowed with enough reason to find our way. Assuming God exists, reason says that if you live an ethical life and don’t hurt others He will be pleased with you even if you never believed in Him. This is my wager. I believe in doing the right thing and living by the Golden Rule.


Islam is Fascism

Islam is a religion with a very political agenda. The ultimate goal of Islam is to rule the world. Islamic state is a fascistic state. Like fascism, Islam distains reason, encourages absolute loyalty to the state, it glorifies war, it is totalitarian, it is absolutist and it does not tolerate criticism.


Why Attack Only Islam?

What I look in people is their humanity. I look at their sense of justice, fairness, compassion, kindness, and empathy. Intellectualism challenges my mind, but what make me cry are simple acts of kindness. I want to promote goodness. I don’t give a damn about beliefs.


Is Islam a Religion?

Islam is influenced by Christianity and Judaism and shares many features with these religions. However, it has a dimension that these two faiths don’t and that is its political dimension. While Jesus was clear that his kingdom is not of this world, Muhammad’s main objective was to conquer the world and dominate it. This goal is so paramount that for its achievement morality and ethics can be sacrificed. Muslims are allowed and even encouraged to break the rules of ethics and fairness in order to make Islam dominant.
