Mohammmad: two-bit brigand or colonial pawn?
Related to an IF post by Shambhu from 2008 containing the Wall Street Journal article "Professor Hired for Outreach to Muslims Delivers a Jolt: PBUH probably never existed" (online.wsj.com/article/SB122669909279629451.html)

Wasn't aware that the aforementioned German uni-professor - "Muhammed" Sven Kalisch - ceased to be a muslim in 2010. Although he has definitely deconverted from islam, his current ideological/religious situation is unknown as per the site "wikiislam", see below.

What's also at least as interesting is that the guy behind the muslim "Answering christianity" site has deconverted from islam too. (Lots of christian apologists and reverends debating with atheists similarly deconverted from christianism. See FFRF and other sites for a listing)


(Includes listings of which religions they've moved on to, or if they've left religions altogether.

Added: Apparently only English-enabled apostates/those in English-enabled countries are given coverage. Because there are many apostates of islam in China, many of whom even revert to ancestral heathenism.)

The relevant section is:

Quote:Current Beliefs Unknown

•Wesley Snipes - Major Hollywood star who left Islam in 1988.[24]

•Seány O'Kane - Big Brother 2007 UK housemate, converted to Islam in 2003,[25] and practised the religion for a short time, but stopped after believing it to be in conflict with his homosexuality.[26]

•Qais Ali - Muslim internet debater behind the now defunct "Answering Christianity" site.[27][28]

•Muhammad Sven Kalisch - Former Muslim convert and Germany's first professor of Islamic theology. In 2008 after extensive research he came to the conclusion that "Muhammad probably never existed",[29] and apostatized in 2010.[30]


(The footnotes on KalischSmile

29. Andrew Higgins - Professor Hired for Outreach to Muslims Delivers a Jolt - Wall Street Journal, November 15, 2008

30. Muslim professor who questioned Big Mo's existence has ditched Islam - The Freethinker, April 21, 2010

Quote:Disputed Conversions

•Barack Obama - Current President of the USA. Although President Obama (who is a Christian) has stated that he was never a Muslim, some have suggested otherwise.[31] This issue has also been discussed within the Muslim world,[32] and a Sudanese scholar has even called for his execution on the grounds that he is an apostate[33]
Didn't remember that islamaniacs had gone about calling for Obama's execution on the assumption that he had been (or "ought to have been") muslim. But what else is new.
