With all due respect, and I have to admit candidly that I am rapidly losing that respect, these…
Just because you don’t like Muslims (which you clearly don’t) does not give you any sort of moral high ground to take a fact and alter it for the convenience of your rhetoric.
You are more like the Muslim caricature you draw than you realize.
Were indeed personal attacks, by any valid definition of the term.
Your comments also put into jeopardy our assurance in your capacity to distinguish truth from fiction and fact from personal opinion and your bona fides with regard to both.
Not that that assurance wasn’t already strained to the gills, because it was.
To return to your “factual” argument – since your capacity to recognize and use facts is now seriously in question. You claimed that Islam worshiping the God of Abraham is simply a matter of fact. Your argument might be put succinctly as…
The God of Abraham is, in fact, the true God who is the one God whom Christians worship.
Muslims, in fact, worship the God of Abraham.
Therefore, Muslims, in fact, worship the true God who is the one God whom Christians worship.
That is, basically, your argument which you claim is a matter of pure fact…
The problem is that you disallow other facts, which when consistently applied in the same form as you employ, those facts prove the exact opposite.
Same form as your argument:
Jesus Christ is the true God and is the one God whom Christians worship.
Muslims do not worship Jesus Christ as the one true God.
Therefore, Muslims do not worship the one true God who is the one true God whom Christians worship.
Applied consistently your “factual” argument proves both X and ~X, therefore it cannot be a definitive proof. The facts, themselves do not amount to an argument.
I have no interest in rejoining this debate, but when untruths are told and the “methods” used by that person are coercive in nature rather than merely speaking the truth, someone needs to speak up and simply clarify the facts. As you said, it is illegitimate to employ a method that will “take a fact and alter it for the convenience of your rhetoric.” Just holding you to the same standard.
