1.Professor nuts, please give your understanding of what follows and then tell me if you are in agreement with it. If you disagree, outline your "logical" reasons for holding your STUPID position.<quoted text>
(who has yet to address the question on how his messiah could be biblically legit)
As Eric has said, and as no doubt any of the Muslims you referred to would freely admit, NONE of them are descendants of Ishmael, therefore none of them are Hebrews. They are all Muslim, in the way that if I became Zen Bhuddist that wouldnt make me Japanese.
Islam is a religion, not a people.
Christianity is a religion, not a people.
Hebrews are/were a people. Arabs, while not exactly a people, are a genetically based (i.e. what you are calling "racial") category as well. Not all Muslims are Arab - Muq (Indian descent), Alex (white European descent), and BMZ (Persian descent living in Singapore) are not.
If Ishmael is in the list of Eric's "Hebrews" then BMZ, Alex and MUQ are also in the LIST of Hebrews. WHY? They are in the MIDST of his list. Put it this way they are sandwiched between Ishmael and the real list.
2. "Islam is a religion" is known to the entire world and has always been known. Congratulations for catching up with the rest of humanity. You tend to linger behind.
3. Explain your "not a people" with respect to Islam. Don't dodge.
