    Materialism has bought the west liberty, equality and freedom.
    they used that freedom to oppress others......the west is the one who created violence in the east with their injustice....so they have been using freedom the wrong way....

    I am fully aware of the impact western foriegn policy has in the east. But western foreign policy did not bring wahabbi Islam, or harsh shariah law. The west did not cause men to throw acid into the faces of women who wanted to learn or not to wear a veil. Nor did it cause Islamic governments to stone homosexuals and adulterers for private choices etc..etc...

    To blame the west, is just to try and shift the focus from your primitive, opressive religion and it's rules and laws.

    not all non muslims go to hell its for god to decide who will go to hell
    even muslims will go to hell
    That's news to me since most of the Muslims I have come across are in almost unanimous agreement that non-Muslims are automatically condemned to Hell according to the novel the Quran.

    i have been thinking a lot recently about Religion and this just a theory i have come up with. That its only a necessary for the first three stages of the transition model.

    I Think this is why large parts of the middle east/africa cannot develop, as the stranglehold of religion is too tight. (obviously there are other factors)

    personally i really feel there is a god and his the abrahamic one. (Christian, Jewish and Muslim) but sometimes the more i feel this theory is more correct.

    what does everyone else think ?
    You migth be right if those parts of the world hadn't ever encountered development and progressed in strong religious societies. However, that isn't the case. The Muslim world flourished after the rise of Islaam.
