iceHorse posted a topic in All-in-one ForumI'm from the west. I was brought up being taught the scientific method. Basically my schooling (and way of thinking) probably has its roots in the Enlightenment upon which many of the U.S.'s founding documents are based. I've been trying to understand Islam for several months now - I've made a bit of progress. One initial conclusion I've come to is that it's difficult to discuss Islam with many Muslims because many topics appear to be off limits or cause offense. One example would be the Danish cartoonist. Of course the notion of "off limits" topics is counter to logical discussion. I would be happy to hear that my conclusion is wrong, and that in fact there are no "off limit" topics. So what's true? Perhaps I should ask "what's true in this forum?" Are there "off limits" topics?
