Comments on my previous posts ask, in effect, why I think that everyone, especially believers in Abraham’s God, need to improve their religious understanding, when, in reality, it’s the "crazies" who lack understanding and need to be "eliminated." But how can nations "eliminate" a widely dispersed, unidentifiable, rapidly-growing "army" of "fanatic Muslims," who believe it is now their "holy duty" to convert the world to their beliefs and destroy the "unconverted?"

Before this "nuclear age," the idea that some people could actually destroy "all unbelievers" would have been too ridiculous to seriously contemplate. Today, "the crazies," armed with enough weapons of mass destruction — AND THEIR WILLINGNESS TO USE THEM — could destroy the world as we have known it. Although many "righteous Muslims" would also die in nuclear attacks, if they are "true believers" they are going directly to Heaven, so their deaths cannot deter the attackers!

The only way to effectively combat such beliefs is with "improved beliefs." If enough people the world over embraced the enlarged understanding provided for us by ALL the Prophets, from Abraham through Muhammad, the Muslim "extremists" would hear them! Although you might think that idea is "beyond reasonable expectation," nothing else the world can do will persuade the "fanatics" to reconsider their "mission." Of course there’s no guarantee that even an improved understanding of God will do the job! But thinking we can kill all of them before they set the world on fire is fatally self-deceiving.

I'm new to your blog but it seems that you are suggesting a different way of dealing with the crazies. You may have a point, but how would I start? What do I do? I do not want to give up my religion, but I don't need to kill anyone, but I am unwilling to convert to Islam.

I apologise, but, in my opinion, you are not right. I am assured. Let's discuss it. Write to me in PM.

I would be glad to discuss our "disagreements," but first you must state at least one disagreement, so I can reply.
