The Qur'an's challenge; "Produce a surah like it, if ye are truthful"

I found the following letter on the Internet, while I was on my way to the Wikipedia article on Damascus:
 


This is no ordinary letter, or surah, if you will. This is God's last letter/surah/revelation before he severed contact from the Earth, leaving a small band of apostles that include me and the white dude who linked this to me on Gmail chat. This letter, every day, works for me, by teaching me moral values of committing to things of higher value for the sake of both me and society's happiness. It makes me a better person, by giving me spiritual strength in that even divine teachers struggle with the weight of this world. It predicts things that are beyond human knowledge, for example, God knowing he's going to be laid before it actually happens. I presuppose this letter's truthfulness and its godliness (lent to me via extraneous revelation, like Paul or Muhammad's knowledge), and it gives me a world free of contradictions. All other world views are objectively inferior to the one this grants me.

Come on, Muslims. Google is bound to lead you here eventually. Let's have a go at it.

I'm not sure. But, I'm starting to think that posting on here while I'm drinking is not going to help atheist apologetics at all. At least I type well enough when I'm drunk?

My drunk Facebook'ing and

My drunk Facebook'ing and texting tends to not end so well. Not too long ago apparently I sent a text to some guy saying, "You are so beautiful." Next morning I saw his reply, "We've never even met." Which was true, I guess.

This thread is making me want to drink some more.

Well, I find your drunk posting rather entertaining, so feel free! (I'm such an enabler, haha)

Speaking of Marx, I have a website for you that criticizes Lenin's dialectical materialism in favour of Marxist's historical materialism:

When you are less sober, I would cherish your thoughts on it. I've been enjoying reading it for the past couple of days.

And yes, Goddess, stop being an enabler. What happens if next time I get drunk I also get baptized and hitched in some nocturnal pentecostal church? This is Southern California, for Christ's sake; it can happen!
