>> As for Shalmo, I do not think he is an atheist, but nor do I think he is an Islamic fundamentalist, for obvious reasons. I think he really is a Muslim, but a wishy-washy sort of modernist Muslim.
In my opinion, we know that Shalmo has one personality that's atheist because
- Shalmo has argued using anti-bible interpretations of archaeology.
- Shalmo has argued against aspects of religion that Islam affirms i.e. virgin birth and messiahship of Jesus (Islam does not affirm Jesus' divinity or crucifixion)
- Shalmo was about to argue against the global deluge on OTD's blog until I challenged him on it then he backtracked and lied that Islam only affirms a local flood.
I know that Shalmo has yet another personality that is Islamic because he says he's not an atheist and because you (Mellock) and OTD says Shalmo is Islamic.
I call Shalmo an Islamic fanatic for 2 reasons
- He does not believe that today's Jews are real Jews. He subscribes to the conspiracy theory of Shlomo Sands that Jews come from Khazars.
- Shalmo is extreeeeeeeeeemely anti-Israel and does not even give Israel credit for its Islamic citizens having equal rights.
The thing is when I was having a fallout with the orthodox clique and they spread stupid shit about me, and I became SJ for the first time, I was railing against the dishonesty of the religious establishment. Shalmo rails against Jews on an existential level.
