I read the chain carefully and came to the conclusion that what a waste of time. All religions in this world have a common thread and they are interconnected. If an older religion has predicted about someone coming in the future then it is possible for such passage to exist. However, one need not go to another religion to support their own religion. Hinduism is probably one of the oldest religion if not THE oldest. I also think that over passage of time passages from the books were either lost or changed. But that does not negate the fact that these are Holy Scriptures and we must respect it whether we believe in it or not. People should follow their own religion but certainly research should be conducted and discussions should be had. Hope these comments are helpful.
