My blog posts on religion have attracted a lot of controversy. Religious people are annoyed by my claim that belief in God will go the way of horse transportation, and for much the same reason, specifically an improved standard of living.

you still talking to us imperialist infidels?!? Why are you bothering? Oh yes, you want to convert us to you peeeace of Islam. BTW some of us used to be Theists so we KNOW what a joke religion is :))

Reality check. The Quran *contradicts* previous revelations. All the so called revelations contradict each other.

What does this tell you? All of them are man made.

That would be obvious to any sane human being. However theists are moon-struck and to varying degrees insane.

Theists happily admit other theists are bat-shit crazy, without realising they are crazy themselves. Yes thats all of them, all the 5 major one, lots of minor ones, and 000s of sects.

The story goes like this..

You have a "Prophet" X who gives a "revelation" (delusion). You have to believe in him and only him, otherwise you will burn in hell. Obey his teachings and you will go to heaven to be rewarded with virgins or perhaps to sign eternal praises to Gawd.

All other religions and revelations are of course false. You are the chosen one.. lucky you!

Muq like other theists is clearly brainwashed in Islam. It is the sheep herd mentality. Unable to think for himself, he takes a belief system wholsale off the shelf and believes in it all uncritically.

Humankind has moved on. We no longer go around tending to flocks of sheep and herding goats. These primitive belief system are ripe for extinction. This is now an age of reason. Humankind is growing up. Only a delusional fool would believe in bronze age ravings by "prophets" talking to imaginary sky people.
Ans.

01. It is our “duty” as a Muslim to inform every one about Islam. This is enjoined on us Muslims because no new prophet is to come into the world after the last prophet came.

02. Quran does not contradicts earlier scriptures. It conforms them and removes the corruptions and changes done by human hands.

03. I cannot say about Other Scriptures, but Quran is not man made. That is why it throws challenge to all human beings to bring another book like it and so far no one is able to do it.

So you pick up the challenge and bring a book like Quran and you finish Islam!!

04. Yea I know humankind has moved, they are digressing into more errors.

But MUQ, we believe in none of them. Muhammad followed the footsteps of Moses and Jesus and tries to emulate them. We just feel that he had amalgamated their so called 'divine revelations' with his own principles. There is no big deal it.
Ans.

All prophets of God followed each others and walked in their steps.

The message of God has remained the same thru out the ages.

As the basic rules of Physics and Chemistry do not change with time, so are essential principles of God’ revealed religions.

You are entitled to accept or reject our prophet, but by the same rules as we establish the Prophethood of Moses and Jesus and other prophets, we can establish the Prophethood of our prophet.

You will be asked to explain before God why you rejected the Last and Final Prophet.

There would be no prophets and every one the world over would have the same message, and no one could have changed it to suit himself. There would be no men thighing any babies, anywhere then. The ones who might, would all be too afraid of a real god, to ever try it. Raped babies are proof that there are no gods.
Ans.

You have very strange test to explain why there is no God.

Just explain how this Universe came into being!!

But where is the proof to support your claim that Muhammad,Moses and Jesus performed miracles.Only your scriptures back up your claims.Your scriptures cannot be trusted unless there are some evidences from an unbiased non-religious source that is consistent with your scriptures
There is no scientific evidences that Jesus had been existing long ago.
Your prophet seems to have been emulating someone like Jesus who had never walked on the face of the earth.
Any Tom,Dick or Harry could have declared himself as prophet since people of those times(except pagans) had belief in prophets(precedents of Muhammad) they had never witnessed in their lifetimes .

Because the sun doesn't set in a muddy spring, stars are not used as missiles against evil ones trying to listen in to heaven, we are not made from potters clay, unsupported promises of virgins in paradise and threats of hell, a book that translates badly and no one in their right mind just accepts the word of one man without question.

Messiah does not necessarily mean that they have to be annointed to be kings. This is a very harmless term in OT meaning some one who is “charged” with some mission from God.
Since Jews denied the messiahship of Jesus, that is why Quran called him a Messiah and gave him that title.
So do you have a hope that the existing nation of Materialst, Atheist, Ashkenazi Jews of Isreal would “go back” to their old scriptures and start observing those laws of OT?
Boy you are very big Optomist!!
When would Christians go back to following the teachings of Jesus, by the way?
The term Messiah means "anointed one" and this person will literally be anointed. Daniel 9:24 "Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people...to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy". Elijah will also be anointed. Zechariah 4:14. All of the OT laws will be observed until the Messiah comes to Jerusalem and changes them. "Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments". Malachi 4:4. Jesus' covenant to Christians was belief only. They are caught in the grip of Satan.

The final prophet is the Messiah. The God of Israel is the first and the last, and scripture ends with the resurrection. This will mark the beginning of the final earth age and the heavens and earth will be renewed. If Muhammad was a prophet of the God of Abraham, why is there so much hatred between Muslims and Jews? Muslims pay lip service to the living God but they do not obey his laws. The Christians are no different. The coming Messiah is the savior of the Jews.

That shows how good are you in understanding scriptures..not knowing a word of Arabic it seems and posing as authority on Quran and Islam.

Ans.

1. What are those "70 weeks" mentioned in Daniel 19:24? When they will start? Do you mean to say that "there will be a religious revolution" in the current Materialistic , atheist Ashkenazi controlled country of Isreal and they will start observing all laws of Torah?

(I think they will better prefer to go back to from where they came!!)

You are more believer in OT books than the people who wrote them!!

2. The Final Prophet has come and that happened 1400 years back.

If you are waiting for any New Messiah to come, that will be Anti Christ spoken in NT books.

It looks to me that you will be happy to follow that anti Christ than the real Messiah.

01. Miracles performed on the hands of prophets Moses, Jesus, Mohammad and other prophets of God (Peace be on to them all) are things that do not happen every day.

In case of anything happening, it is the reports of eyewitness that is sufficient. People are sent tog allows based on the testimonies of eyewitness.

When reliable witnesses have given their testimony that they saw it happening, unless it is scientifically impossible, we will have to accept it.

02. Where is any scientific evidence that Great father of your great great grandfather ever existed? Bring scientific proof and then talk about jesus.

03. Our prophet never emulated any one, he was a prophet like many before him.

04. Yeas every Tom Dick and Harry can claim that he is a prophet of God, but he has to have all those qualities I mentioned in our discussion "Qualities of a True Prophet of God".

No Tom Dick and Harry would qualify that list.

It seems your memory is very short.

Why you post at all, when you have nothing to say?

The vision and prophecy is to be sealed up. That is because scripture can be broken. The best way to ensure it all happens is ignorance. This is something God has taught me. But the breaking of scripture is the fulfillment of scripture. Christians call the real Messiah "Antichrist" and they will cause him to be killed. Whoever returns on the Mount of Olives is the real Messiah.

Why you post at all, when you have nothing to say?
1)You have repeated this many times.I am still holding the same position.How could anyone perform miracles that defy physical laws?
The oldest copy of Bible dates back to 2 century A.D.
While the specualated prophet Jesus is supposed to have died in 1 century A.D.Hence,the so called eye-witnesses must have not written the Bible.
There is a good chance that someone might have made up the stories.
Hence,the authencity of Jesus's existence is questioned.
2)Silly argument.I don't have to prove my ancestors' existence since I am the one living proof of their existence.But if I were to say,My great great grandfather was a prophet and performed miracles,I should prove it with plausible evidences.
The same cannot be said in the case of Jesus as neither his progeny traced nor there is any archaelogical evidence dating back to 1st century A.D..We only get to hear about such a great man in abrahamic scriptures.
3)Oxymoronic sentence!You are claiming that Muhammad was prophet and the same time denying that he never tried to be like a prophet.
Or you did you mean he was not like other prophets?
4)My memory isn't short.
None of your posts on qualities of prophet had any significant benchmark.
Some highlights of your posts on qualities of prophets in paraphrased sentences:
1)Prophets never contradict precedent prophets' teachings and follow their footsteps.
Ans:Do you think it would have been difficult for Muhammad to not contradict Jesus when there is a good possibility that he must have known the teachings of Bible?
Even there are many Muslims that ardently adhere to teachings of Quran.Are they all prophets?
2)Prophets are men.
Ans:Seriously,is this a benchmark?Who have set this benchmark?Your own prophets whose honesty/intergrity is questioned.How plausible it is that your alleged prophets qualified themselves as prophets by setting their own standard?
3)Prophets deliever God's messages and deliver the message without any corruption.
Ans:This is not a benchmark.How would we know if they were delivering god's messages without any corruption.
