...If you really are the religious Muslim you claim to be, how is it possible that you think Allah is so limited that He can be defined with only logic?
Allah is the most Logical with out whom there is no logic. As such Allah gives us by his intellect what we call reasoning within us to determine right from wrong in order that we may act upon what is right and shun the wrong away from our selves and shield our loved ones from such wrongs when and where possible in order to preserve peace and unity where chaos and ambiguity and hesitation or doubts may form from corrupted forms of ideology of blind faith.
...Furthermore it is my believe that God has given mankind a free will. Only because we have a free will, we can really worship God (if God had "forced" us to believe, what would be the value?).
A "consequence" of this free will is that we are able to interpret His Guidance (Quran, Bible) in the actual situation we are currently living in.
If the Guidance where to be absolute and not open to interpretation would that not that away our free will?
Correct: Some Chose of their free will to recruit gays and lesbians to produce children to be branded as themselves and some chose to legislate laws to prevent such things. I chose the latter over the former any day!! Would you not? Or are you a liberal too who believes in any thing popular at the time. (We have seen may such popular nations destroyed by their own form of liberalism) (This is not to say that one should believe in dictatorship. The laws are set to protect us from many crimes even crimes against ourselves if and when our judgments are corrupted by erroneous ideologies)
As long as we don't have a complete answer to these questions, wouldn't it be better to be humble and kind to God and other people.
No one has suggested otherwise!! One should employ vigilance in expression where one is at risk of having children or neighbors or any brother or sister corrupted by false ideologies, which clearly do not work, based on observation and results.
“ You ask me to tell you what God will give us in paradise. Verily, I say to you that those who think of the wages love not the master. A shepherd who has a flock of sheep, when he sees the wolf coming, prepares to defend them; while the hireling, when he sees the wolf leaves the sheep and flees. As God lives, in whose presence I stand, if the God of our fathers were your God you would not have thought of saying, ‘What will God give me?’ But you would have said as did David the prophet, ‘What shall I give God for all that he has given to me?’”
For us to give unto God it is impossible (for we would have to be twice a god all over [May God forgive me this utterance of thought and analogy]) so we can offer the sacrifice of prayers and not the blood sacrifice that people often tend to give or want to give (as a reality or “in their imaginations as in the case of the crucified Christ”) It is this crucified Christ ideology which hinders true progress in that those who believe they are redeemed by the blood of some other being pay little or no heed to preventing themselves from committing errors and thus those who think they have for reward heaven for a hideous belief as - in the case of crucifixion or sacrifice for redemption of their errors – grow more arrogant and their offspring eventually grow in the same pattern causing descent in society and use up valuable resources which would otherwise be spent on further education on reeducation or correction at correctional facilities which have to be policed. These economic losses and loss of time cause more harm for future generations who have to pick up – from amongst corruptness - the fragments of what remains of the truth to live by and to teach by. If Christ has truly died for our sins or errors then – the reasoning of the minds of children - which is not yet formed fully – deduces “that in this case I shall not be punished and will continue to live in peace!” (Please do not try to state otherwise. I have seen this kind of reasoning every day and amongst adults who preach from the pulpit) you just have to look at some TV. Evangelists amongst others who do not lift a finger to teach commonsense to the poor and to the homeless and to the destitute
With regards to hygiene, farming, habitat development. We see daily that they give toys and dolls (replicas of themselves to hungry children in order to brain wash them in to worshiping the creature rather than the invisible indivisible creator.)
As for me I have chosen my path; that is: To share what I have learned of Allah, and for no fee as many of us on this forum are doing even with out knowing it. We are to reflect our thoughts and present arguments until we have established the ultimate reality about (God) Allah as best as we have been allowed to by (God) Allah: Here is a description of a perfect God: (please come up with a better description if you are able. I am interested to know if there is a better description to this date)
"Foundations of True Faith"

You can also, if you will, purchase your own books just as I chose to. I have found that one can learn more from reading the right kind of books than what the limited books schools and libraries may have to offer.
Once we have agreed on one real God who needs not blood or money sacrifice to be appeased, then we can move on to more of the scientific reasons for our existence and what is to come based on what this ONE GOD (Allah) has told us.
As ever humble
