When you write skeptically on religion, you get some interesting reactions. My favorite so far is is a Muslim comment on An Illusion of Harmony:

. . . that book by the enemy of Allah, and the mini-dajjal of our era Taner Edis.

(I ran across it on an online forum discussing a nasty review of Illusion by some sheikh.)

This is sort of like calling someone an enemy of God, a mini-Antichrist, in a Christian context. I kind of like it, actually. It’s over-the-top and weird enough to be amusing.
