    What difference does it really make if someone converts from one religion to another? Absolutely none I am afraid. All religions are basically the results of myths taking on a life of their own. Judaism, Islam, Christianity and every known religion is really a big business. Oll those offerings made to JHWH or Baal in the old Testament were ways for people to offer the priests a living. Thus, the priestcast had power over the ignorant masses that thought them to be ordained and chosen by some deity, when in fact it was myth. So convert all you want, you are still suckers for the priestcast that exploits you. Magdi Allam, your conversion does not get you any nearer heaven or a god that man created. Sure, you feel a bit better having converted, but that is a psychological effect, not reality.
