1) What makes you believe in Islam? (Beside the good morals)
2) How did Islam influence the world positively? (Beside the good morals)– Hmmm, okay after a 2nd thought, lets just say how did it exactly influence the MuslimWorld only?
I have asked these two simple questions to Muslims whether directly or indirectly about a zillion times. Unfortunately, none was able to give me any logical explanation, they all end up describing mankind as savage beasts, who needs to be tamed with religion. According to them religion is an essential foundation for civilizations for the morals that it preaches, and for the fear from punishments it provokes, which effectively prevents our sinful nature from committing any immoral acts.
However, one can reasonably argue that development of morals is evolutionary.-Check my previous post on religion & morality for more info.
Moreover, morals and ethics is a common feature that exists in all religions and non-religoues systems; morals doesn’t make any belief any more or less valid than other religions. So if you will attempt to answer this question please refrain from referring to morals as an example … There must be more into Islam than just morals for you to believe in it-unless your belief is based solely on blind faith.
