You claim that I do not know the teachings of Bible, while at the same time you say that the Quran says Muslims go to heaven by killing disbelievers, you see, every verse in the Quran has to be checked, when it came, why it came, and check the context.

And second, I believe that the Bible was sent by God but then was corrupt, I have no problem believing that Islam is the continuation of Judaism and Christianity, you say that is illogical, but lets see which one is illogical.

We claim that the Bible has been changed, you guys dont, so lets analyze this:

In Genesis 1:3-5: light was created on the first day, and it was called morning and evening, and then it even mentions that a morning and an evening passed, referring to a 24 hour period, and secondl, how can there be a morning and an evening if the earth was created on the third day(Genesis 1:9-13), and second, how can there be light in the first day when the sun was created on the fourth day(Genesis 1:14-19).

Genesis 1:9-13: Earth was created on the third day, but the sun and the moon was created on the fourth day(Genesis 1:14-19) we know from science that the earth cant come into existence before the sun.

Genesis 1:11-13: Herbs and Vegetations were created on the third day. Again, how can vegetations be created before the sun and survive, because the sun was created on the fourth day.

Genesis 1:16: says that there were two lights created, a lesser and a bigger(sun and the moon), but the actual translation of the word 'light' from Hebrew is 'lamps', therefore meaning that the moon gives out its own light according to Bible.

Genesis 1:29: says that all the herbs and plants are edible for you. But today we know that all herbs and plants are not edible for us, many are poisonous.

Contradictions:

Hebrews 1:10-11 and Psalms 102:25-26 says that the Earth will perish.

Ecclest 1:4, Psalms 78:69, and Job 26:11 says that the Earth will abide forever.

Ezra ch. 2, if you count the verses of the people who will come back from exile is 29, 818, while Nehemiah ch. 7 is 31, 089.

Ezra 2:65 says that there were 200 singing men and women, but Nehemiah 7:67 says that there were 245 singing men and women.

II kings 24:8: says that Joechan was 18 years old when he reigned Jerusalem. II Chronicles 36:9 says that Joechan was 8 years old.

Mistakes in the Bible about Animals:

Leviticus 11:6: 'hare is a cud chewer', but today we know that hare is not a cud chewer, it is not designed to, back then people believed that because of their shapes.

Proverbs 6:7 : 'Ants have no rulers', again, we know through science that ants do have rulers, even a queen.

Isaiah 65:25 'serpents eat dust', Dbunker, please feel free to look at any zoology book you can find that says this.

Plagiarisation:

Job 10:9-10 mentions that we were created like a curdled cheese. But this is exactly what Hippocrates said, and back then plagiarisation was very common.

Animals:

Leviticus 11:20: 'fowls with four feets', the NIV translated the word fowl, 'uff' in Hebrew into 'winged creature' because that is what some scholars say is the true translation, 'uff' means and 'insect' or 'winged creature', no matter which translation you use, it is still unscientific, there isnt any four feeted winged creature, nor any four feeted insect.

Cure for leprosy;

Leviticus 14:49-53: says to disinfect a house from leprosy with blood.

Insertions in the Bible:

If you look at the RSV Bible, you wont find the adultress women story, why? because it was a fabrication, that story is not in the 2-3 century(earliest greek Bible manuscripts) Manuscript.

there are many other verses that have also been inserted.

but you see, in the Quran, the Big Bang has been mentioned(Quran21:30),

the stages of baby whom prof. Keith moore gave due credit to Quran for(Quran 96:1-2).

Animals living in Communities have been mentioned in the Quran.

Circulation of blood(Quran 16:66)

Expansion of the Universe (Quran 51:47)

Evaporation in the Quran (Quran 86:11)

Mountains as pegs (Quran 78:6-7)

Oceanology (Quran 25:53)

Etc.

You see, with careful and logical reasoning, the Quran is compatible with science, while the Bible is not due to men who changed it.

Thank you.
