Dualism – Why Is Islam So Confusing?


Islam seems very confusing since it is so contradictory. It is supposed to be the religion of peace yet practices brutal jihad when needed. Part of Islamic doctrine includes wife beating, yet there are hadiths that say not to hit Muslim women. Which is it? What is the real Islam?

The answer to that question is a “yes” to both. Islamic doctrine is based on contradiction. I call this acceptance of contradiction Islamic dualism. Islam has all the good you hear about and also all the bad you hear about. The true nature of Islam is dualism, or contradiction. This makes Islam very powerful because it can present whatever “face” is advantageous.
