Are you ready to stop being a coward and prove the god you're lying about?

Seriously you've had thousands of years...the lies are wearing thin...

Dear brother, I will not quote any thing from Quran at all.
These are very basic things which most people already know. And using these criterion we can judge who is a true prophet of God and who is not.
And neither you, nor your pedophile moohumund qualify.

A child-raper like moohumund is simply not moral enough.

Why could Muhammad have 12 wives but other Muslims can only have 4? Oh and why could his brother only have 1?

It seems you and Allah are unable to answer this.

But you will have to be patient and listen to each item slowly and give your comments.

If you get these things properly understood, your job will become very easy.

Mostly the Muslim men. They love to bash western society while indulging in the very behavior that they condemn. A few Muslim women from moderate societies do it to.

You need not quote any verse from Quran to answer my questions.I am just asking why there is a disagreement among Muslims and Christians regarding prophecy of Muhammad.Why he has been denied by Christians and Jews?
There is two possibilities:
Either Muhammad had fulfilled the criteria that were known even before him or Muhammad set his own criteria to declare himself as prophet.

I'd much rather deal with a liberal cafeteria sort, than the fundies who are full of hate, though.

Me too.

I love the re-purposing of these into productive business as well.

Especially pubs or bars-- that has a level of delicious irony that would only be surpassed, if the ex-church had been a brothel instead.

Posters should write objectively and inclusively to receive respect and trust from readers, as well as to avoid alienating readers. To be objective means to write with curiosity, rather than having a preset opinion, and to engage with research, rather than presenting a personal preference.

Being objective in your writing is a skill that you will develop, just like your academic voice. Though having a passion for your topic makes the writing process easier, it is important not to let it take over your post.

Your Jesus,(were he real) would say to you: "Satan, get thee behind me! I do not know you."

I agree, although I regard cafeteria types as being dishonest to themselves and not wanting to admit that their own moral views and that of modern society are inconsistent with biblical/koranic ethics.

Why Jews and Christians rejected our prophet is known to them. If they would have applied the tests, they would have found out that our prophet was a True prophet of God.

If there is doubt in the prophethood of our prophet, then I am sure they cannot prove prophethood of ANY of the prophets whom they believe in.

But let us leave out these subjective opinions. There will always be people who will not listen to reason and logic and adhere to their beliefs.

If that was not so, the life on this planet would have become "so monotonous" !!

So leave aside, what Jews say and what Christians say about our prophet. First you should know what are the qualities of a true prophet of God.

I told you that you should have an open mind, if you are confused and already pre-programmed, you might not follow the arguments.

Are you ready?

Read your own writing: You're telling us that we will be tortured forever.

Who's the evil one again?

Give up the lies and try to be honest for once in your life you mindless creationist robot.

Your opinions about the nature of reality will matter after you're brave enough to prove your god and not before.
