To strenghten and develop the sublime force of willpower to focus it and fulfill the divine quest! and become one with God once again.

It doesn't matter what religion you choose, they are all paths to unity with spirit, however there are paths that are faster and more effective, but it depends on your personality.

To so perfectly time my existence, that while eating the perfect chocolate chip cookie, I sink my par putt on the 18th hole of pebble beach, then drop dead.

life has no purpose, we make our own with the things we say and do.

Thanks too much
Oh yeah, Allah... the one that tells people to kill other people or something right? Why is it that your religion commits suicide in the name of Allah or kills people in the name of Allah? I think many of us Christians and even non-Christians alike want to know that.

Yes, but we can provide some plausible explanation for WHY we believe what we do. Christianity is not mere "blind" faith. Our belief system is grounded in authentic people, places, and events in history.

I'll await your response (s).

Just think for a moment.
How are you going to be after death ?!
Can you believe that this exact system of the universe and all of these great creation will end in nothing...just after death!
Have you thought, for a second, How to save your soul from Allah's punishment?!
Haven't you thought about what is the right religion?!

Yes I have thought about it, and after weeding through the lies, frauds, killings, and thefts, I rejected all religion as absurd, and only for those who were just ignorate or too afraid to look at the truth.

Most followers of other religions will probably give you some form of the same response though. Muslims think that there is a plausible explanation for believing that Allah is the 'one true way' and that it is not blind faith, and also have 'evidence' so to speak to back up why they believe Allah is the way to truth.

Fair enough.

Yet Christ is unique. His teaching and his life of sacrifice intimates such.

Same argument really. I'm sure every muslim will tell you that Muhammad was also unique because of actions he did which the person finds inspiring or any Buddhist will say Gautama Buhhda was special for other reasons.
