Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: Saladin - falsification tests mean nothing

The fact that clever men interpreted the words of Mohammad and wrote in falsification tests makes no difference.... They are just clever men. That passage you quoted is making the assumption that someone writing a book would not write consistently. This was written down by scribes and then verified (proof read if you like) Didn't the first Caliph Hadhrat Abu Bakr put all the scripts together to make it into a book? You say it is in it's original form. But applying the falsification theory you could propose that the texts were indeed changed to make them more readable and flow...... You could say that they put their heads together to make sure they got it right before sending it to the publishers.

Do you know that there is no objection that has been raised against the Quran that is not already commented upon in the Quran itself?

There has been a group of people who have reached the conclusion that there is so much information in the Quran that no arabian could have known? so Muhammad must have outside source of information. meaning that he is a liar; that somebody gave him this information and he said it came from God. And then there is another group of people who did their own research and came to conclusion that at different moments in his life Muhammad showed a confidence that could only come if he was a prophet of God. But actually he was crazy, he thought he was a prophet!

Well you can be a liar or you can be crazy, or you can be neither but you can't be both; a liar and a crazy person at the same time.

So your objection that clever men interpreted...falls into which category?

Where did this inofrmation come from(just one examle - no interpretation required by clever men):

Have not the disbelievers seen that the Heavens and the Earth were one piece and we parted them? And We made every living thing from water. Will they not then believe?" (21:30)

Can I ask why a Hindu, Sikh, or Bhuddist would ponder the Quran. They have their own books to ponder.

As i have said the Quran is not a muslim book. It is a book from the one who created everything. let him who will take heed. It would be very nice if they started pondering their own scriptures and stick to what their scriptures say instead of following cults invented later.

One more question. Why would God tell just one person in the world? If he is all powerful surely he could have just broadcast it to the world in everyones native tongue and then there would be just one religion wouldn't there?

This objection is already commented upon in the Quran. You will find the answer there. Go look it up.
