in response to reader comment: PCMadness, you are drawing the wrong conclusion

First, we were discussing prophets fighting in the cause of God. Your own book has plenty of them. So why single out Muhammad (PBUH).

Whatever your book says about prophets isn't necessarily true. so don't talk about their sex life or idol worshipping in old age. that's your book. you are welcome to believe everything in it or only those things that make sense."

Actually tno we weren't and the only conclusion I am drawing is that religion seems to hold people in high regard, as in prophets regardless of how they have lived their life. Soloman wasn't necessarily a good person, and neither was Mohammad. Raiding caravans is not fighting in the cause of God. Wise people can be bad people too you know.

And in response to you second point, what sort of answer is that? Our book?, your book?, truth? Yet you "think" the Quran is truth?

If we all believe in the same God one untruth is untruth for all. One day you will get it!
