What miracles?

Reader comment on item: Better Dictators than Elected Islamists
in response to reader comment: No regrets

The miraculous are the claims made afterwards in the hadith, not even the Quran. What are you talking about, Slayhy? The great splitting of the moon? Again, Islam has to counterfeit something to supercede or at least equate itself with the Bible. God, through Moses, had to split the Red Sea, so now Mohammad has to "split" the moon. Abraham obeyed God and was going to sacrifice the promised Isaac, and Mahometism has Abraham sacrificing Ishmael. The bible was written by Moses, prophets, and the Apostles all inspired and instructed with exact wording via God, so of course the illiterate Mohammad's miracle was him writing the Quran via Allah.

Jerusalem is mentioned 800 times in the bible and not once mentioned in the Quran, and yet tradition has Mohammad flying on a beast to Jerusalem. Wait, that's right, Jesus first rode a donkey into Jerusalem. Are you starting to see the counterfeit relationship, yet? But why would Mohammad split the moon being the symbol of the Babylonian/Eyptian moon god Al-Ilah?
