Please note that for this article "Atheism" also includes agnostics, deists, pagans, wiccans... in other words non-religious.

You will notice this is a statement of fact. And to be fact it is supported by evidence (see references below). Now you can have "faith" that this is not true, but by the very definition of faith, that is just wishful thinking.

01. Jesus' teaching, i.e. "truth will set you free", is NOT an allegorical statement and this concept is far older than Christian theology.

02. Like Christianity, Islam has many different branches and many different sects within those branches with many different imans putting their own spin on what Mohammed said. The Sufi branch of Islam holds that seeking truth is how man evolves into higher states of consciousness and frees himself from bondage to false illusions--very similar to the teachings of Gautama Buddha and Jesus.
Ans.

01. "Truth will set you free" has many shades of meanings and in such issues there is flexibility and it is not a Dogma.

02. I know that Muslims got divided into sects and each one is giving importance to their own interpretations.

When humans try to understand scripture, there is bound to be some difference of opinions and some disagreements, but they have to be within limits and people should not make sects and each start arguing and condemning others.

03. Sufi teachings based on Quran and sayings and actions of prophet are laudable and no one is against them.

But when some one leaves straight path and starts giving more importance to their visions and their mystical experiences which go against direct teachings of Quran and ways of prophet, they have to be rejected.

Teachings of all past prophets have some basics in common.

So you admit to belonging to the same ultra barbaric form of Islam that UBL was in. You must approve of chopping the noses off of women who back talk their husband.

And you wonder why civilized people look upon you as beasts.

Islam has it's numbers only because of the threat of violence if people leave.

There is no historical proof Muhammad even existed.

Is it not strange that Muslims in western countries still adhere to Islam?

Who is threatening them with death?

And how about Non Muslims accepting Islam?

PS:

There is no "historical proof" that our prophet even existed!! This is great, what historical proof you are talking about?

Have you Historical proof that Moses, or Abraham or Jesus existed?

Other claims made by your poster boy Jastrow:

"...tobacco was having no effect, that Acid Rain was not caused by human emissions, that ozone was not depleted by CFCs, that pesticides were not environmentally harmful..."

Wrong again, bubba. Robert Jastrow did get Apollo 11 to the moon.
"Now we see how the astronomical evidence supports the biblical view of the origin of the world. The details differ, but the essential elements in the astronomical and biblical accounts of Genesis are the same: the chain of events leading to man commenced suddenly and sharply at a definite moment in time, in a flash of light and energy."
-- Nobel Laureate Robert Jastrow--first chairman of NASA’s Lunar Exploration Committee, which established the scientific goals for the exploration of the moon during the Apollo lunar landings. Chief of the Theoretical Division at NASA, founding director of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies, Professor of Geophysics at Columbia University, Professor of Earth Sciences at Dartmouth College, Member of the NASA Alumni Association, Founder and Chairman Emeritus of the George C. Marshall Institute, and Director Emeritus of Mount Wilson Observatory and Hale Solar Laboratory.

Often their family threatens them with violence. Like when the president of that Muslim outreach group brutally beheaded his wife?

That's how you beasts behave.

Mr `Crick` you are the person who in a previous incarnation actually aspired to being(and claimed the identity of) a convict serving jail time for violent offences. If you aspires to the calibre of that person I can only imagine your current circumstances with dread...

Excuse us if we treat your point of view regarding Carl Sagan as slightly less than...salient.

These are the weasel responses we should expect when creationist trolls get cornered.

They always have something ignorant to say about homosexuals, women, abortion, science and atheism.

But when it comes to their own lives, they go silent - because that's what dishonest theist liars do.

Mr `Crick` considers astrology to be a science. He often speaks disparagingly regarding women and strangely enough for a misogynist he has a penchant for physically `large` men as his avatar.

Make of that what you will...
