in response to reader comment: G-d is Reasons

Belief has never been about evidence.The quran tells me to believe that Jesus did all his miracles and so did Moses.I did not see those miracles but I beleive in them as part of my religion. Jesus did amazing miracles but did everyone believe in him? Most people did not at that time. People would call him a magician ...etc. Mohamad could have raised the dead(by god's power) but people would not believe him. They would say he hypnotized them or he performed magic.

Is it hard for god to take Mohammad on a journey to heaven and bring him back? God is capable of anything.None of Mohammad's followers beleived in him because of that incident.They knew his character, lived with him and saw him over the years as a genuine person. He was know as the truthful one long before islam started. The issue is not evidence but it's the message.Mohammad's message is universal and simple.See, Alex, God would not ask of you what you cannot deliver.

take care,
