We know that Ergun has committed a grave error by saying that the month of Ramadan consists of 40 days, which is of course, not the case. An explanation of this error can be found here.
Ergun has attempted to respond to the exposure of this error by publishing an article on his Facebook page.
Furthermore, he explained to a Facebooker that the reason he said Ramadan is 40 days is because there is a group called the Alawite who fast for 40 days.
He then went on to say that we must understand that he teaches global apologetics and that we will not be familiar with a lot of things he says. This is of course, total nonsense because we are aware of the differences with regards to religious matters. Ergun very well knows that he made a mistake and he refuses to admit that he is a liar.
If you actually see the clip where Ergun stated that Ramadan is 40 days, you will see he clearly says “40 days ON THE LUNAR CALENDAR”.
The question must be asked – which lunar month has 40 days? The answer is none!.
What he said had nothing to do with the “Alawites” at all, he is yet again lying to his own fans in order to cover up his error.
Besides, even if the “Alawites” fast for 40 days, that does not mean that Ramadan is a month consisting of 40 days, it simply means that this deviant group fast for 40 days, nothing more.
For Muslims, it is blatantly obvious that Ergun Caner is lying, why do his fans not see that he is a liar?
Shouldn't Ergun as an ex devout Sunni Muslim until the age of 18 understand how many days are in the month during which he fasted for 18 years?
Ahhh...that didn't take long. For a moment I thought you were interested in speaking about doctrines and beliefs. I assume this means you are trapped and have no more answers on the issues of truth and Jesus Christ? For the last time:
1. Subsects of Alawite fast 40 days. Muslims.
2. Bahai use two fasts, 19 days and 40 days. Islamic offshoot.
Whether you prefer to count them as Muslim or not, I do not personally care. In world religions, they came from Islamic movements, and thus count as Islamic movements. Just like Sikhs.
So- the fasting is now answered.
The problem we faced in this discussion is that they do not recognize Alawite as a Muslim sect. There are other groups that Sunni dispute: some do not believe Shia are real Muslims, or Alawite, or Druze.
I teach Global Apologetics. Even though I was Sunni, scholarship demands that I also present the beliefs of ALL Muslim sects and splinters. That includes the Sikh (Guru Nanak split off) and others.
