The_Doc_Man, lets get something absolutely clear here. You initially ignored post #60 because you recognised the truth
No, I ignored post #60 because I knew you were going to claim something miraculous there. But to me it is just another case of confirmation bias.
I am trying to not be personally abusive, Aziz, but you sound exactly like the kind of overly anxious zealot that makes me fear for my safety. You seem to be out to convert people to a religion that I find hateful in the extreme regarding the way it unevenly treats women (but then claims to be PROTECTING them - from what, I'm not sure.) Your religion cannot stand dissenters and doubters. Your religion has no acceptance of people who are of other religions and no acceptance of people who are homosexual. Since I have a gay daughter, a person I happen to love, I cannot accept the restrictions and condemnation that would be placed on her. Your religion would probably condemn me for apostasy or heresy or something similar. And I should adhere to a religion that hateful? I don't think so.
Do you want to know WHY I reject your exhortations? Because to me they speak of anger - an overweening anger that I would want people of your religious culture to enter the 20th century and, in time, make it all the way to the 21st century. The excesses of exclusionary dogma do no one any favors. It is time to abandon that way of thinking. And I have abandoned it.
