Now that is a stupid comment.<quoted text>
The difference is if the officer tell you to do something foolish or wrong you can contact the commander-in-chief and have an answer from him. In case of Muhammad, you cant contact anyone. Hence the need of convince people he's Allah's main boy, and to "enslave" them the using of faith.
Islam and Judaism work mainly on the principle that "messengers" bring message from God.
When prophets and messengers bring messages, only an idiot would want to talk to God!!
Either you believe in God or you don't!
If you believe in God you will believe in the Prophet who has brought a clear message to the followers.
If you don't believe in god, you won't be listening to the prophet anyway.
By definition you can't "see" God.
