To Raqib,

Didn't you read my previous postings Raqib? You have made no attempt to respond to the issues of key importance contained in them, issues of the authority of the Bible, the Council of Nicaea, and its non-involvement in the Bible's contents, your claim that "the divinity of Jesus was established by debate" at the Council of Nicaea in AD 325 and the demonstrable falsity of the GOB ("Gospel of Barnabas"). The claims for the "Scientific Miracle of the Qur'an," and your asking me to "Find a single verse in Qur'an which is unscientific" to which I responded with the scientific disaster of Muhammad's belief of the sun setting in a muddy spring, documented in Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Number 421, the Qur'an teaching at Surah 18:86, that the sun rests in a muddy spring from where it then travels throughout the galaxy until it appears before Allah and returns back again! Issues of the preservation of the Qur'an, and its transmission without change over the last 1,400 years, and the age of the oldest documents etc.

It really is tiresome to keep going over the same old ground, when the falsity of your claims can be so readily demonstrated, and I repeat that you reread my previous postings, and deal with all the issues you have failed to deal with, before I move on and deal with any more of your objections/distractions. In my interactions with you, I seek to "give a reason for the hope I have," as required of me by the Scriptures at 1 Peter 3:15 and thus far, have sought to meet your objections fully, and ask that you attempt to meet mine similarly, before introducing further objections/accusations, do please reread my postings at http://www.danielpipes.org/comments/68233

http://www.danielpipes.org/comments/68346

and http://www.danielpipes.org/comments/69712

and when the unfinished business they contain has been dealt with, then, and not before then, will I deal with any more of your attempted distractions. I look forward with great interest to having your carefully considered responses to the questions posed you in my previous postings, and then we'll see about moving on to deal with your further comments.

With kind regards and best wishes Lactantius Jr.
