Calling the Muslim community to pay attention to history, time, and the deeply flawed assumptions that 7th century Mecca is "eternal"
It is amusing, now that we are over it, to see that others have to learn the same lessons we did. History is real. Societies change, for the better and for the worse. Reasoning can improve over time. As a (fourth post down) brilliant poster said long ago,
the greatest catastrophe in the history of Islam occurred in the 10th century, when the "gates of reason" were closed. Time to reopen them, gentlemen.
