“Mini-Dajjal”

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.

    Is that an honor or what?

    Aydın Örstan: “Is that an honor or what?”

    I’m not sure. When I’m feeling insignificant, does it help or hurt to know that out there somewhere, I’ve provided an occasion for someone to foam at the mouth?
