About Me:I am a former Muslim and former Muslim apologist who defended the religion of Islam on an academic stage. I debated theologians, philosophers, apologists, thinkers and activists at Universities, Churches and on Media programs. My official position is Agnosticism. This is the premise from which I now debate theology and philosophy. Prior to my agnosticism as a Muslim I debated Christian apologists including: Dr. James White, Dr. Tony Costa, David Wood, Walid Shoebat (former PLO terrorist), Nabeel Qureshi, and Sam Shamoun. On behalf of the Muslims for Progressive Values toward the end of my tenure as a Muslim I debated Shaykh Shaker Elsayed who is an Imam of Dar al Hijrah in Virginia also known as the "9/11 Mosque" because 2 hijackers attended it and the infamous Shaykh Anwar Awlaki was an Imam there. As an apostate of Islam or former Muslim (now Agnostic) I've debated Muslim apologists including Abdullah al-Andalusi and Sami Zataari and Christian Pastor Jonathan Switzer.
