Noticing a dearth of Islamic posters here, and curious about their worldview on subjects I hold dear, I actively went out to recruit a few Muslims for the board.
The result was a Fundie Muslim who annoyed everyone by believing in Creationism and making the same kind of arguments that Fundie Christians made. On one hand, it really showed people are not that different. On the other hand… AHHHHHHH!!!
Another poster was pretty cool though, even participating in an “Ask the Muslim”-type thread which was common around these parts back then. (Witness Esprix and his sig file for a glimpse of how popular those threads became). However, he got bored with the place and left fairly quickly.
I don’t think there are any more Islamic posters on the board at this time. If they are, they haven’t mentioned it, though some folks here are semi-knowledgable about the Koran and the religion in general.
If you wish to recap any of the above, search in Great Debates for “Muslim” and you’ll see the threads that the guys I brought in here were involved with. It was at least several months ago; I think towards the very start of 2000.
