Comments from an ex-Muslim on Circular Reason

Am now reading Leaving Islam: Apostates Speak Out, ed. by Ibn Warraq. It is quite an interesting read to be honest, as Ibn Warraq and many of the folks in this book did not leave Islam for Christianity (something I have studied a great deal), but for atheism or secularism or perhaps deism. A very different sort of texture to their stories.

Here are some comments from one ex-Muslim on his experience with speaking to Muslims about God and doubt:

When you debate with a Muslim and he does not know what to say, he always says, "God is the author of the Koran because that's what it says in the Koran." It is absurd to prove something by itself. Sometimes when I hear these responses I feel like giving up on exposing the truth about Islam and religion...
