I am not sure what part of my post you pronounced as nonsense, the fact that illiterate does not necessarily mean dirty or the fact that The Prophet Mohammed was illiterate.

 

Perhaps these people in India are more interested in the struggle to purchase food than soap and toothpaste. Let's see, brush my teeth, feed my starving baby....... hmmmmmmmmmm

 

Apparently you have never been to Europe where the literacy rates are very high and lack of oral hygiene runs rampant. You might also be surprised at how many highly educated people live in complete filth.

In fact, living in filth is so prevalent among the highly educated there are TV programs dedicated to showing just how filthy they are. Please see:

 

<SPAN =mw-line>Foreign versions</SPAN>

<SPAN =mw-line></SPAN> 


<SPAN =mw-line></SPAN> 


 

Notice that there are versions in all of these "high literacy rate" countries:

 

<SPAN =mw-line>Foreign versions</SPAN>

 


Please spare me your lunacy. It's not my job to educate you. But, I hope this helps.

You and Sagan no doubt know more than Allah.

HAHAHAHA. So, by your logic, Muslims should all be illiterate because Prophet (SAWS) was also illiterate. And also ride camels. [IMG]smileys/smiley4.gif" align="middle" /> [IMG]smileys/smiley4.gif" align="middle" /> [IMG]smileys/smiley4.gif" align="middle" />

 

I'm not the one stereotyping here.

 

Candid's greatest hits:

illiterate people are dirty

 

black people are uneducated

 

westerners are overly materialistic, decadent, immoral, and believe religion to be a burden

 

rich Muslims are decadent and immoral

 

Israel and America are evil

 

Pakistanis "Majority of the people are illiterate. They have limited access to information and hence, they can't think for themselves."

 

Indians are hypocrits, filthy, and fascists

 

European women are selfish and materialistic

 

Hey, you forgot to mention that I also said Westerners are promiscuous and drunkards.
Besides, you should, at least, take care to quote me accurately even when you do it out of context.

Candid, have you ever been out of India? Just curious.. as Mark Twain once said " be careful of health magazines you may die of a misprint"

be careful about what you read..

I haven't been out of India, but I have interacted with many foreigners and Indians, who have been out of India, in person. I have also chatted with many people from around the world on IRC.

Sorry, thought I was fairly accurate. Which statement are you questioning?
 
Perhaps:
 
"Even in US AIDS is more prevalent amongst Blacks because many of them are not adequately educated."
 
or maybe:
 
"Here in India illiterate people don't use soap and toothpastes. They don't know smoking and drinking is injurious to health."

or:

"Rich Muslims are certainly getting decadent and immoral"

I can go on....

I wonder how all of the above observations fit in with the "Muslims are NOT racists" topic you started? Perhaps it should have been "Some Muslims are NOT racists". 
 
But you should be proud, you form an opinion about large groups of people, and you are not afraid to voice it...

"Here in India illiterate people don't use soap and toothpastes. They don't know smoking and drinking is injurious to health."

or:

"Rich Muslims are certainly getting decadent and immoral"

Since when did rich Muslims and itlliterate Indians become a race?

You know, if you choose to denigrate people, whether it is their race, their intelligence, their morality, it's up to you.
In the west we have a saying: If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.
At this point I choose to say nothing at all........

Oh, thanks a lot for choosing to say nothing because you have nothing sensible to say.
