Why do you feel that you need to 'prove' the superiority of Islam? I live in a community where the many types of Christianity from Catholicism to Methodism, Judaism, Buddhism and Islam are practiced without one faith trying to prove the 'superiority' of their faith over the other. I will add one thing though, Christianity exists in many forms because it ALLOWS the examination of the theology and practice of itself. Tell me where Islam allows this? I'm not saying Christianity is 'superior' because of this, but I am saying that Islam LIMITS thought and practice and most people I know like to be able to see beyond their own back fence. I just know you will respond by citing all the violence that's occured in the name of Christianity and then I could respond with all the violence carried out in the name of Islam, and to that I would finally say that there is violence in the human heart, all human hearts, and that the keystone of peace (and isn't that what we all want?) is tolerance.
