You say that Christianity is corrupted. There is no historical evidence as far as I'm concerned. In fact, since the Qu'ran was written many years after the Bible, Muhammed was definately exposed to Judaism and probably Christianity as well, possibly developing the Biblical themes. This is similar to the example that "Christianity is based off of Greek mythology." You say the Bible has many contradictions, I ask you to name examples.

The Bible was written on three continents, in three different languages, on hundreds of topics, prophetic, and was written people from all walks of life (kings, scholars, tax collectors, the list goes on!). All this work over a span of 1,000 years. And the Qu'ran was written by ONE person based of his revelations. My knowledge of the Qu'ran is limited, forgive me if I am mistaken. The revelations are sometimes self-serving it seems? Muhammed married the the divorced wife of his stepson. Does not the Law of Moses say that these things are forbidden?

How can Christianity and Judaism be corrupted? The archaeology supports the Bible's accuracy. The Dead Sea Scrolls support it as well. The prophets foretold the coming of Christ, the Son of God. These prophecies were made much earlier than those Greek myths.

Genesis says that the Messiah will be the seed who strikes the serpent's head.

Moses himself said that Jesus would be the Star from Jacob.

Over 700 years before Jesus, Isaiah prophesied:

Jesus would be born of a virgin.

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah 7:14;&version=31;

Jesus is God.

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah 9:6-7;&version=31;

And many more, see Isaiah 11:10, Isaiah 53:3, and Isaiah 53:7. And the other prophets also prophesied as well, such as Micah, Daniel, Jeremiah, and Malachi.

What's more, the New Testament is written by SEVERAL authors, not one like in the case of the Qu'ran. Again, if I am mistaken, forgive me. The fact the Qu'ran says that the disciples and followers simply made things up about Christ is foolish. Would the disciples suffer torture, exile, banishment, death, persecution for something they KNEW WAS A LIE? Again, if the Resurrection DID NOT HAPPEN, then why do we use BC/AD as time dating?
