You can be skeptical and friendly at the same time.

Jeff Swenson points out the obvious problem:
I knew guys named Mohammed in college, but they smelled to be allergic to water, so they wouldn’t appear in a bath towel, like the cartoon. Which Mo-man did they look like? Well, varied styles of peops, of course, like any other guys. How does anybody know what the real one looked like?
IMO, that Freethunk! tied for #1 with the one where Gawd stubs His Toe (and damns all of humanity).
At the risk of taking this post a bit too seriously: do we know whether there actually was a real prophet Mohammed? The islamic scholar Muhammed Kalisch doesn’t think so. I’ve read a bit of his work, and it seems reasonably coherent, though I’m not in a position to judge its accuracy.
He only has himself to blame.
Ok, that’s ironic, funny and topical.
