I have seen muslims make such non sense claims on this forum before so I'm surprised that you are making them.

Muslims kiss the black rock whenever they go on haj. Kissing the black rock is part of the ritual. Why do they kiss that peice of meteorite anyway? I will tell you why. That practice goes back to pre-islamic times, Muhammed simply incorporated these rituals in his new religion. Allah was the moon god known as al-illah. Muhammad worshipped it so did the people of his tribe(quarish). The only thing Muhammad did was turning the diety of his tribe into the supreme diety in Arabia. Abraham never went to Arabia, his home was in palestine. The kabbah was built buy pagans to worship their pagan gods.

Concerning the Holy Bible yes it is the best selling book of all times. If you want to find out more you can google it, or go to amazon.com. You said you are not sure there are more christians than muslims? What planet are you leaving on. There are 2 billion + Christians around the world and growing. This exploding growth is taking place mainly in Africa, Asia and Latin America. I'm sure you have about the global south.

When it comes to the koran, one only has to read it to see the absurdities in that book. The contradictions and bogus science in that book make more of a fairy tale type book. Well, that's what the koran is actually. A collection of greek myth, plagarized biblical passages and any other legend that was floating around at that time. The koran is not from God. There is no prophecy, no chronology and no accuracy. This book was put together 200 years after Muhammed's death. So one can only begin to immagine the innacuracy and falacy contained in that book.

You mention the book "misquoting Jesus" as some kind of source of truth. You must be a very gullible person. Those authors are only about the money. Those who wrote the "Da Vinci code" and all the other junk science fiction books.If you read the book you will see that they have no proof. All they use are suppositions and conjectures, but not one shred of solid proof. But like I said before, these guys are all about the money. I'm sure they know there are people like you who will take them seriously and by their junk fiction. I'm sure they are laughing all the way to the bank.

P.S: Show me where you see the corruption in the Bible. Give me the chapter and verse. I will be waiting
