It's common among Moslems to reject retarded or brain injured children. This is a holdover from their older belief systems which almost all held that you get reincarnated, and while that's going on, you get punished for the sins of your previous lives (a concept best known from Hinduism but otherwise pretty common in the pre-modern world).

That's just one of the reasons Islam cannot be subjected to reason ~ they all believe all sorts of things that simply don't derive from Western religious traditions (Christianity, Judaism, Mithrism, Agnosticism, Polytheism) ~ their actual beliefs are more like disembodied animist spiritualism. Last thing any of these guys want to do is talk about sin and redemption ~

” That’s just one of the reasons Islam cannot be subjected to reason”

I have tried debating in a Facebook forum. They value rote memorization not critical/analytical thinking. They simply don’t think logically.

I got banned btw for analyzing the historicity of Mohammed.
