In your first post you stated, "I don't understand this argument." and then you stated, "That doesn't mean I agree with all the conclusions drawn." There's a big difference between "not understanding" and "not agreeing". If you don't understand, please feel free to read the thread. It's been discussed. If you don't agree with me, well, that's fine, too. I never said that you had to. You can also refer to post #35 and get the perspective of an expert (M. Ayoob) on the matter.
