The Trouble With Islam ( I Am Saying This Respectfully)

Hi M,
Islam says some very worthwhile thoughts
as I remember, like don't eat too much and be nice.

What bothers me is saying there can't be any more revelation...and requiring folks to believe if they haven't freely chosen (you know, how they
say "infidels" and all that).
If you could design your way through that conversation-ending dogma, it would be
in play for free and open discussion.
I also don't like to travel all that much so going to Mecca would be really a problem...anywhere can be sacred...in fact, why should we consider a space to be profane? It just creates an excuse not to take best care of a space? Maybe you can answer freely with thought, or maybe you can only reply within your religion. YOu know, scholarly superiority may not be permanent.
Mike
