    I'm curious why you believe Islam is correct. I was wondering if youd share alittle of how you become muslim and why.

    Id prefer if this didnt turn to a muslim bashing thread. Course, I have no control over what people say after this.

    I've been thinking of asking the same thing.

    Why?

    Why did you have to ask... not sure?

    I think the thread is a good idea. Personally, I'd love to hear a muslim rationalize to me why they think killing people in cold blood is their duty. Why burying a woman up to her waste and then stoning her to death is their way. Why fathers kill their daughters because they date a non muslim. And then I'd like to hear them tell me again about islam being a religion of peace.

    This is was this thread was doomed to devolve into, and it didn't take long at all. Sorry, but discussing something like this is impossible when so many idiots will enter the discussion under the assumption that they already have all the answers.

    This is like asking a gay person to tell you how they became gay and why.

    I was worried that it might be. But i really wish it wasnt. I think we can all be greatly edified by it.

    I suppose so. But what's wrong with trying to understand people better?
