    So, that’s why they don’t enjoy a drink, they’re confused. Jees you’d think their imaginary being would be a wee bit more clear with the instructions. The christian god is just as useless. Allah/god=fail.

    I think the wording you may haave used is wrong

    I’ve always wanted to ask someone that believe in the failiure of religion what he believes in or how was he created or maybe how his soul, body, and the whole world. Where did all of that come from! Emotions? Thinking? Your Brain? Just please don’t tell me that the big bang theory, and that we were created through physical means.

    Oh, and by the way I am Muslim. What this picture states are just straightforward facts that are as a matter of fact true as well as exaggerated. If you bother reading more on this subject you will realize why. If you read the Quran without the attitude that you’re convincing yourself with that it is false and contradicted. It’s beautifully written. Never have I read anything even similiar, and I am a reader!! Please before you throw accusations just read the facts deeper. And yes Robster we don’t enjoy a drink. We smoke the hookah or the shisha and we have hashish, we don’t need wine or beer 😀

      Dear Anonymous Muslim,

      “I’ve always wanted to ask”, you say. That’s great, here’s your chance! But I wonder, are you interested in the response? Here it comes:

      You accuse atheists of not bothering to read the Quran properly. I confess, I haven’t studied many of the interpretations. You may be right that the quote above could be a misinterpretation.

      But at the same time, the examples you just gave (creation, emotions and thinking) reveal a breathtaking ignorance of basic scientific explanations that are easily within reach for anyone. Yes, the origin of the universe, of life, as well as the enigmas of emotions and the brain have been fairly well explained by science and are readily available on the web, on TV and in popular books for general audiences. Really, just by posing these questions you indicate a compact disinterest. This is why I doubt your honesty when you say “I’ve always wanted to ask”.

      “I don’t understand how the world works, therefore Allah must exist!”

      There’s no shame in ignorance. We’re all born ignorant. From there, most of try to learn. The rest WANT to stay ignorant, and that is something to be ashamed of.

      If you’re really curious, here’s a reading tip to start with. It’s written for a general audience and discusses how conscience, free will and moral responsibility works: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_Evolves

      One more thing. The whole line of reasoning you put forward is known as the “God of the gaps” argument, which says, “there are gaps in scientific knowledge, therefore the supernatural exists!”. The problem with this reasoning is that every day, science is progressing and finding more and more answers, forcing the divine to a smaller and smaller domain. Today we have reached a point where this domain is very, very small.
