It seems our Fadu Singh is "more than eager" to take the main lead once again!!

Did he not moved in circles having doubts over what Jews think about prophets and what Christians think about prophets.

Now he is trying to use the same tactics asking divergent questions, to mislead from our main topic.

He should change his name, before I answer his comments, if I answer at all.

And what happened to Mr. Spider?

Has he chickened out?

He said he is feeling "bore"!!

What a reason to run away from discusiion!!

Is it not strange?
Sunni and Shia Muslims have a different collection of Hadith. That also is strange.

No doubt each one things they are right, and the other sect are apostates.

I do not discuss "internal difference" between various sects and denominations of Jews, Christians , Hindus, Buddhists and Sikhs either.
It is easy to see the followers of other faiths as deluded. It is easy for you to see Christians as delusional and following false beliefs.

All you need to do is apply the same level of skepticism to your own religion. A small step to enlightenment!

I challenge Christians to come forward and prove that they follow what jesus taught and preached.

Most of them are following what St. Paul told them and this St. Paul was not a disciple of jesus. He never met him, not learned any thing from him and did not learn any thing from the chosen 12 disciples of Jesus.

His claim of Apostle of Jesus was self made and it was he who turned simple teachings of Jesus upside down and brought out a New edition of what Jesus taught.

As for Muslims, we try to follow as best as what our prophet taught. We did not change any of his teachings.... out shortcoming is only to the extent we follow.

Word of Allah and sayings of our prophet are preserved in the same condition as when they were uttered.

There is a lot of difference when Muslims argue and when Christians argue.

Some of what you say above is true. Paul was not a disciple of Jesus and was a self made man whose teachings were different to those of the gospels.

However you repeat Muslim propaganda that Paul perverted Jesus' true teachings.

If you do research, you will find out that Paul was in fact the founder of Christianity, not Jesus.

Paul's letters were written first and then the gospels decades later. This is a very important point. Jesus teaching was just stuff people made up decades after the events. These gospels all contradict each other, and contradict the earlier letters of Paul.

Paul was not perverting any Christian teaching, because he initiated the new religion in the first place.

Muslims have a very mixed up view of Christianity, cherry picking bits of the gospels which fit in with the Quran, and saying everything else was a corruption. Christians cherry pick other bits and come up with a very different understanding. And they dont just follow Paul as you say. If anything they put the gospels first and Pauls letters second. But that is not my main point.

The way to understand it properly is to look at all of it. Then you will find that there are massive contradictions throughout, errors and absurdities. All of it can be rejected as nonsense. Same applies to other so called holy books.

When the name Muhammad is the most popular name in the uk I'd suggest atheism is the least of your concerns. Can I get a Allah Akkbar!! Them Muslims are raising the roof everywhere, even in Canada a first happened a bunch of muslim immigrants are taking our government to court because they want citizenship but do not want to swear alliiegance to the Queen. Go figure crusades... Ect.... Thinking in running in politics next time I suggest we put them in a sea container drill some holes and push it out to sea. After all would a Muslim expect an infidel to do anything different? Just saying,

The topic of our discussion is Qualities of True prophets of God.

I do not want to start multiple discussions on the same thread on different topics at the same time.

Where is Mr. Spider the "lead man" ? Why is he hiding? I do not see him being active ?

Why this sudden loss of interest?

Can anyone take his place? Except Mr. Fadu Singh, because he handed over that baton.

You confuse "capitalism" with corporatism and there is a huge difference.
Capitalism is the ruling System. The nuclear Age is on its way to destroy mankind. No Chance to escape for humanity. Harrisburg, Three miles,Ttchernobyl, Fukushima are just way marks for the Ends of human life. The AKWs fasten the Inferno.
