When engaging in dialogue with Christians, a good portion of your time may be simply spent on dispelling myths, misconceptions, and straw man arguments about not only Islam, but also about Christianity itself. Most laypeople in the world are generally uninformed about religion in general, including their own.

Early Christian Theologies

This will be a continual work-in-progress over the years of compiling a list of early Christian theologies, focusing mainly on those with Muslim-sounding themes or major turning points in history.

Friedrich Nietzsche on Islam

Friedrich Nietzsche writes in his book, Der AntiChrist (the Anti-Christian) in 1888: The whole labour of the ancient world gone for naught : I have no word to describe the feelings that such an enormity arouses in me.

There's a strange movement among white Western men of this "alpha male."
