  1. The further geographic distance you look, the more options you will have, but you may have long distance barriers. Like education and families far apart. If you focus locally, you have fewer options but less logistical difficulties and better mechanisms of evaluating compatibility (in real life, not just online). If you live in certain cities of Canada (especially GTA but anywhere else too), you get the best of both worlds. In that case, wait it out. You may have the luxury of being “pickier” than others. You’re starting the search early enough. Even waiting one month may completely change your opportunities. And I’ll say the obvious, time isn’t as disadvantageous for men.
  2. You made a general point that religion survives primarily in “insular” economies, and I asked a question using one counter example of a religion expanding and thriving through the opposite mechanism. Here’s another question: when religious texts have been translated into scores of world languages, how is that facilitated? And another: How does the concept of a “globalized” Mahdi fit into your premise?
  3. I’m not commenting on anyone in particular. Just a general observation that “we’re being suppressed” is often emphasized by conspiracy types to boost credibility. Some people see this as an important prerequisite for the viability of a position. In other words, the more marginalized something is, the higher chance there’s truth in it. That’s a logical fallacy that many have, but won’t acknowledge. The search for truth is hampered by the psychological need to feel victimized and be a contrarian. Of course, the pendulum swung the polar opposite direction can also be problematic.
  4. The Galileo fallacy is a logical fallacy that asserts that if your ideas provoke the establishment to vilify or threaten you, you must be right — "everyone says I am wrong, therefore I am right." That's what seems to be happening.
  5. People in general have difficulties understanding numbers and probabilities, and only see what they want to see. The same people who dismissively talk about a “99% recovery rate” (which is actually a little low considering the high rate of transmission) are the same ones who over exaggerate about 1 in 1000000 chance of a vaccine side effect, or whatever ridiculously low number it is, pretending it’s more pervasive than it really is. If you’re willing to go in a car, then a vaccine is significantly safer than that.
  6. An approach to dialogue cannot be one way only, and that’s the problem with some of them. They only want to talk and preach, but not listen.
  7. Non-Muslims are also tested by God. That interaction was one of their tests on the state of their hearts, and the ability to show decency. And you were tested too with your patience and how you react.
  8. The fact that Muslims exist and have some presence in virtually every country can only be a positive thing.
  9. Putting aside colors for a second, it’s hard to believe that the “existence” of anything is purely dependent on human consciousness. In other words, human perception flipping the switch from “non-existence” to “existence”. A more accurate terminology would be “latency” to “apparency”. Both these terms still imply existence in essence, while also explaining the association with human conscious.
  10. Polygenic traits weaken, not strengthen the significance of genetics. By definition, they are more susceptible to environmental factors.
  11. Translated wavelengths are still wavelengths. Giving it a different name through translation (color) doesn’t change any inherent physical properties of the object.
