Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict XVI and the Koran
in response to reader comment: not "kept unmolested" Raqib

Submitted by Raqib Ahmed Asif (Bangladesh), Dec 14, 2006 at 12:53

Brother Lactantius should know one thing that the "The Bible" we have today is the product of the Council of Nicea, held under the wings of Emperror Constantine. Where the divinity of Jesus Christ established by debate. When we had debate about the Quran and Science, he had presented me with various translated verses of Qur'an by varies translators. Thanks to Allah, He has revealed the Qur'an in Arabic. Allah knew that if the Qur'an was revealed in other language then the corruptors would have defiled it just the way it was done to Holy Bible. Find a single verse in Qur'an which is unscientific. Find a single verse which is wrong.

To understand Qur'an one has to learn Arabic. Those non muslims who learned Arabic and then read Qur'an, surely you will get the answers from them. Like Dr. Maurice, who is still a christian, I beleive. If you want to learn about Islam. Then come to a neutral position, learn science and learn Arabic. I am trying to learn Arabic. You have said, " If the Qur'an truly is uncorrupted, why does the Muslim world not publish the oldest Qur'an manuscripts? What is there to hide? ".

My reply is to you, go the Tashkent and Istanbul, where the oldest manuscript is preserved and any one even you can get a look at it. See and compare its meaning with the Qur'an you find in the book store. Gospel of Barnabas, Gospel of Phillip are the Gospels which were rejected in the council of Nicea, very long time back. Those Gospel still exists today in the Vatican Library. You can read them, only if they allow you. They were rejected because these gospels do not support the divinity and Trinity. ? I have examined all the known superstitious of the world, and I do not find in our particular superstitious of Christianity one redeeming feature.

They are all alike founded on fables and mythology. Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined and imprisoned. What has been the effect of this coercion? To make one half the world fools and the other half hypocrites; to support roguery and error all over the earth.? ? Thomas Jefferson Allah hafez.
