I can't speak for sk0rpi0n, but I feel he's getting as jaded as I am to the general trend here on ATS. The premise of that thread seems to me to be a

asks why those same don't use the same logic "God declared that Islam is overtaking the west, deal with it".
While I don't quite line up with his views (it is my opinion that despite the hatred and bigotry today, non-muslim western opinion of Islam and
muslims will normalise like it has with Protestants, Catholics, Jews, etc.), I can't fault his line of thought.
At least as far as I can see, he's not advocating that muslims migrate en masse to the west to cause the downfall of Christianity or
