Seeker,It's the only possible explanation that I can think of, and this was indeed confirmed by some ex Muslims I have participated with on forums. If you want the hard cold truth, talk to an ex Muslim who knows all about it.
I have had the fun and pleasure with men like Ali Sina, Haik Monsieur aka Khalil, Kamran Mirza, Abul Kasem and many others and I found them to be ignorant fools.
Even Ali Sina and Abul Kasem agreed that they do not understand a word of Arabic and discuss through translations in English. That makes them incompetent fools. But they are okay with you because you too discuss through translations in English.
