Revealed Scripture?

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God? - Continued
in response to reader comment: If humans are the true authors of "revealed scripture", then what's the point?

Submitted by Linda Haslam (United States), May 29, 2008 at 11:02

If the Koran was truly "revealed" by Allah; then it should stand up to the same kind of questioning that the Christian Gospels have been exposed to. For example: Did Jesus even really exist? Was Jesus married and did he have children? These are questions that can never be conclusively answered.

However, even if there was no prophet named Jesus, the message would still be relevant. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" will always be relevant. In contrast, could the Koran stand or fall on its own based solely on its teaching? In my opinion, it could not as it is too full of hate.
