You may listen? How will you know if it has more to offer than your current beliefs if you don't have a deep and thorough study of the Koran?

p.s. I don't see the meme pictures as mocking, but rather addressing legitimate questions/claims in a whimsical fashion.

Also, I'm not calling you ignorant, Robert Ingersoll was addressing faith, calling it a mix of insanity and ignorance. Faith is believing in something without evidence. Ignorance is a lack of knowledge. Having faith involves a lack of knowledge. If you know something exists, you don't need faith. The insanity portion is probably just bluster. I know plenty of people of faith and don't think they are insane.
