  • 25.8% of people ages 18 and older in the US are heavy alcohol users.
  • 14.5 million people ages 12 and older in the US had Alcohol Use Disorder. (Imagine having a population with AUD that is more than population of Belgium and Greece)
  • Alcohol contributes to about 18.5 percent of ER visits.
  • 28.0 percent of overall driving fatalities are alcohol related,
  • In 2010, alcohol misuse cost the United States $249.0 billion (roughly GDP of Portugal / New Zealand)

It is easy to say "don't drink it if you cannot control yourself". However, these people cannot know that they have addictive personality without trying it.

In respect to your 6th question, Islam spread in various ways. One example is Bosnians who were oppressed by the Catholics at the time. Pope John XXII in 1325 and Pope Gregory IX in 1234 even launched a crusades since they were not seen as Christians. As a result Bosnians were more receptive to the Ottoman Turks. Another example is Albanians who were oppressed by Serbians, through tabligh most accepted Islam and some stayed Catholic. For this reason Albanians have Bektashi background whereas Ottomans had Sunni. Similarly Cretans had Bektashi sensibility and continued to live as Greeks. Indonesians on the other hand accepted Islam due to trade relations. Surah al-Baraqah says “There is no compulsion in religion. Verily, the Right Path has become distinct from the wrong path. Whoever disbelieves in taghoot (false gods) and believes in Allah, then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break.”

Regarding question 5, some parts may have remained free from corruption. In these verses you can feel the wording and grammar is similar to Quran. However, there are many parts that were added, removed or edited. For example the word Deus is something coming from Ancient Greek Zeus (who also had a son according to Greek mythology); However in reality, Jesus spoke Aramaic and said Allah instead of Deus. Another example Christmas is another thing that comes from paganism or cross is something that Jesus didn't wear. These are just few signs how things changed over time.
