“Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? [...] What does God care what we call him?”

You can call me a liar all you want, but the action taken by Muhammad show's he was narcissistic.
No.

A narcissistic person, who lacks self-respect and confidence in his own self talks like this:

"Who do people say I am?"

And instead of telling people, who he was, he says, "I am he" to everything.

Ans.
01. Why Jesus, every human has a soul that never dies. Why you make Jesus' soul as "special"? where did "divinity" entered into his soul?
02. Why only Jesus, when any one dies, his body dies and soul goes to next world.
No one saw Jesus dieing and no one saw his coming out of the grave. These are just your "assumptions" that he went to hell and preached to those people there…did he also went to heaven also and invited those people to accept his as Lord Divine?
You are just parroting teachings of St. Paul, without verifying if they are true or not.
03. St. Paul was an apostle of Jesus but he was self made, he did not have any "Authorization" from Jesus. He never met Jesus and he never learned any thing from jesus and he never quotes Jesus for what he says.
How do you know any spirit talked to mohammad? Did someone see this angel beside mohammad? Did mohammad talk to God? No. He talked to some angel who spoke for something called allah? Who is allah? allah is the alter ego of mohammad! Whenever mohammad did something allah would not like allah would say it's okay for mohammad to do it.

Where is the original koran that tells how mohammad asked the people to pray to three goddesses that were allah's daughters?

No prophet came carrying a book in his hand.
In Arabic, Kitaab also means revelations and scripture.
Even if we call it Aaasmani Kitaab, as suggested, that would still fall under revelations, as no book (hard copy) was ever dropped from aasman (heavens).
Thanks for bringing up the word Aasman. It just does not mean sky. Right?
Yes, I am a Muslim. By the way, every Muslim is also a "Jew + Jesus + Muhammad" but the good news is that a Muslim can never be a crypto-Christian.
The koran in English calls itself a book. So all arabic translators have it wrong but you? Why don't you be honest with yourself for once?

What about nickel, gold, platinum and other siderophile elements in the inner core of the earth?
The fact that precious metals and other heavy elements are so much more abundant in the earth's inner core than in its crust is explained by the theory of the so-called iron catastrophe, an event that occurred before the first eon during the accretion phase of the early Earth.
No mention of solid inner and liquid outer core and of temperature and pressure conditions?
Muslim retard.
ROFL.
Hey Joel,. do your yoga or vedic manuals talk about such things?
Why don't you show them...
You know the absurdities in there!
Like I said it is easy for pseudo intellectuals to run everything down and continue to be losers.
Hope you know how oxidation works and the difference between iron and gold platinum and silver.
Also Quran is not a book oof Science...it talks about signs for people to understand.

If you want a comprehensive book of everything then you will also need to include ALL about medicine, economics, maths, astronomy and many more -isms and sciences!

The Quran will be heavier than many galaxies!!!

Allah mentions this as well in Quran!!

There is no force.
You can take it or leave it well alone and carry on with your lives!

Take care yogi.

You saved me a bit of bandwidth there, bro!
Nice reply indeed....
Revelation Inspiration Scripture, Book...or whatever!

What matters is the MESSAGE from the Most High conveyed beautifully and in STYLE by the Holy Prophet Muhammed PBUH!!

What is there to know about BJ?
He was a JEWISH MAN.
He VERY CLEARLY claimed he came only for the JEWS.
He basically HATED the Gentile DOGS and PIGS.
He MISLED is friends...landed in trouble. Told them to buy swords but they didn't even know how to use them! Then when the chips were down he told them to drop the swords!! what a coward!

BJ was a VINDICTIVE man who got the JEWS in trouble by getting himself MURDERED by them.

As a result the "Christians" MURDERED the JEWS in their MILLIONS branding them as CHRIST KILLERS.

Jesus PBUH, NEVER came a religion called "Christianity"!

That was a funny name used by old honest paul THE SATAN as an insult/revenge to JESUS PBUH, the TRUE MESSENGER from GOD.

Finally "Christians" end up with 3 gods but keep saying they are one!!

Comical...

Yes, according to your false Koran that's right.

I know the Koran is utter rubbish, it was written by a very evil man. Wake up and understand that the Koran just a book of fairy tales, it has nothing to do with reality.

If your Allah exists, then He is a very weak god. He can't help the Muslims defeat Israel. There is 100 times more Arabs in the middle east and the Israelis still kick your arses. Shame on Allah, He let His people loose every war.

Have you ever wondered why Muslims are being slaughtered like flies by The Jews and Christians. Maybe Allah likes it that way.

My Vedic texts? LOL.

I am not a Vedist or a Hindu.

There are Vedic texts dealing with technology and physical facts.

Quran attempts to deal with a few elementary physical facts and makes a big mess since the God and his messenger (Muhammad) were/are not competent.

Primarily, the Vedas are concerned with the nature of reality based on monism and they lay out the methods of achieving the union in consciousness of the subject with the object.

Where is hell?

Is there one or many hells?

What is the basal nature of hell in terms of its substance and forces?

What're the phenomena and laws in hell?

How does hell connect with the universe since underlying diversity is unity.

If the Quran claims without proof to be an infallible book of God sent to humankind via his so-called perfect Messenger, Muhammad, then, whenever it attempts to tackle a topic on cosmology or on any of the scientific facts, why does it make so many errors and assert so many falsehoods that can easily be debunked with Allah and the prophet being made fools of?

Shouldn't a book of God be error-free?

You will find that the character BJ is a PSYCHOPATH mainly due to his apparently illegitimate "birth"…so a “god” was born?
Factors:
1. Having a convicted father or mother (accused by all and sundry and sundry as a loose woman; worse than conviction),
2. Physical neglect of the boy (not easy when parents had problems, no record of his life for many years),
3. Low involvement of the father with the boy (Poor Joseph felt very self conscious about everything that was going on. BJ was not interested in him either),
4. Low family income (hard working poor carpenter and a wandering disinterested son),
5. Coming from disrupted family (Naughty ghost made a complete mess of everything).
6. Poor supervision (they lost him & found him doing “father’s” business!),
7. Harsh discipline (life under Jewish law would have been very harsh)
8. Delinquent sibling (read the gospels!),
9. Young mother (they don’t come any younger than that!)
10. Depressed mother (under lot of pressure vilified, ignored),
11. Low social class, and
12. Poor housing.(stable!)
Traits:
- Glibness/superficial charm (chatting up lonely women offering tadpole water)
- Grandiose sense of self-worth (good lord….i am he!!!)
- Pathological lying ( I am this/that, your sins are forgiven, today you enter heaven with me, peter the rock, I am a good “dead” shepherd, or am I a gate? Son of man on clouds and hundreds more unfulfilled!!!)
- Cunning/manipulative ( made sure the Jews got the blame for his death, blaming others when chips are down, getting clowns to steal donkeys, sell underpants to buy swords and then ditching them saying “live by sword? Then die!!)
- Lack of remorse or guilt – He insults others including hosts, sthe world owed him a favour?
- Emotionally shallow - Simply had no feelings
- Callous/lack of empathy – no affection or link with anybody. Always insulting others. Even mother gets insulted many times. No respect for others.
- Failure to accept responsibility for own actions – made many cock ups and the poor disciples got the blame or the Pharisees or even a fig tree!!
Lifestyle:
- Need for stimulation/proneness to boredom – so did the stupidest of things on earth!
Parasitic lifestyle – didn’t do a days work. Just sponging off others and insulting them
Lack of realistic, long-term goals- keeps changing his mind. Nothing real. All unverified nonsense
Impulsiveness- Fetch me two donkeys!
Irresponsibility – drop the swords you bad boys…I have nothing to do with telling you to get sword. Always landing everybody in sht!
Antisocial
Poor behavioral controls- Need we say anything?lol.
Early behavioral problems – insulting mum and dad!
Juvenile delinquency – where the hell was he most of the time?
Criminal versatility – just look at the Bs he was coming up with!
Machiavellian egocentricity- absolutely!! I AM the man!
Rebellious nonconformity – Need we say more?
Blame externalization – Absolutely!!
Carefree nonplanfulness – Worse than Foggy Clegg and Compo!
Coldheartedness – He showed no heart at all besides crying and screaming so he could save himself. All the others were bad only he was a goody boy!
Superficial charm and good "intelligence" – To con the ignorant peasant fishermen!
Unreliability – He almost always let them down or ditched them or landed them in mess
Untruthfulness and insincerity – read the rubbish attributed to him!
Lack of remorse and shame - absoluitely
Inadequately motivated antisocial behavior
Poor judgment and failure to learn by experience – so very true!! Ends up on a pole
Pathologic egocentricity and incapacity for love – he hated most and always me..me ..me!

Unresponsiveness in general interpersonal relations- no wife, family etc
Suicide threats ----I die ..my daddy loves me as I die!!!
Sex life impersonal, trivial, and poorly integrated – non existent! May be homo? Pedo?
Failure to follow any life plan- I am in trouble, they are going to nail me..so let’s say I die for your sins
