Since The Four NobleTruths cannot be denied--Buddhism definately is hands down the winner since this forces Buddhists to not make up myths and fairy tales about some deity.
This means Buddhists have no lie in them, but because Islam begins with the following declaration:
There is no god except Allah and Mohammad is Allah's prophet.
A Muslim is formed of an uncertainty and possibly an outright lie. What about Yahweh? What about the Elohim? What about Brahma or Vishnu or Shiva?
What about the possibility of no god?
Uncertainty thus makes the Muslim mind and body weak and easily destroyed.
Muslims form wrong views:
They say God is all powerful-- than why do Muslims who pray 5 times and fast for a month still suffer?
Because Allah cannot deny the First Noble truth that there is suffering.

Muslims are devil worshippers.. They create hell on earth. Muhamad is a desert mafia. It is an evil " religion".

No Muslim can be better than Mohammad. He died with great suffering--Allah who you think is all powerful would not stop the pain and suffering of his own prophet after being poisoned by his Jewess wife:

Both Jesus and Mohammad died crying out to god in pain. They should have instead learned from our wonderful Lord of Lords, Buddha passed away in wondrous meditation:

How the Blessed One Passed into Nibbana
9. And the Blessed One entered the first jhana. Rising from the first jhana, he entered the second jhana. Rising from the second jhana, he entered the third jhana. Rising from the third jhana, he entered the fourth jhana. And rising out of the fourth jhana, he entered the sphere of infinite space. Rising from the attainment of the sphere of infinite space, he entered the sphere of infinite consciousness. Rising from the attainment of the sphere of infinite consciousness, he entered the sphere of nothingness. Rising from the attainment of the sphere of nothingness, he entered the sphere of neither-perception-nor-non-per ception. And rising out of the attainment of the sphere of neither-perception-nor-non-per ception, he attained to the cessation of perception and feeling.

10. And the Venerable Ananda spoke to the Venerable Anuruddha, saying: "Venerable Anuruddha, the Blessed One has passed away."

"No, friend Ananda, the Blessed One has not passed away. He has entered the state of the cessation of perception and feeling."[59]

11. Then the Blessed One, rising from the cessation of perception and feeling, entered the sphere of neither-perception-nor-non-per ception. Rising from the attainment of the sphere of neither-perception-nor-non-per ception, he entered the sphere of nothingness. Rising from the attainment of the sphere of nothingness, he entered the sphere of infinite consciousness. Rising from the attainment of the sphere of infinite consciousness, he entered the sphere of infinite space. Rising from the attainment of the sphere of infinite space, he entered the fourth jhana. Rising from the fourth jhana, he entered the third jhana. Rising from the third jhana, he entered the second jhana. Rising from the second jhana, he entered the first jhana.

Rising from the first jhana, he entered the second jhana. Rising from the second jhana, he entered the third jhana. Rising from the third jhana, he entered the fourth jhana. And, rising from the fourth jhana, the Blessed One immediately passed away.

God of the Bible and Koran could not end the pain of Jesus or Mohammad-- they should have cried out to Buddha instead!

Is it because he married and slept with a little girl in his old age ? No wonder we can see the kind of " teaching" coming out of him.

It is hard to be a human.
It is harder still to be a Buddhist.

it's even harder to be a Buddhist who's firm refuge is the Dhamma, and every goes by BOOK (Nikayas)

it's high time to turn to the Nikayas,rather than secondary sources.
