Let's examine Mansoor's statements. Mansoor states that the "Glorious Qur'an", "was authenticated and written under his personal (Muhammad's) supervision". Now we know that Muhammad could neither read or write, but astonishingly, he was able to authenticate the "verses written on separate pieces, scrapes (did you mean scraps) of leather, thin flat stones, leaflets, palm branches and shoulder blades".

As Mansoor said; "the Prophet would immediately ask the scribes to write down the revelation he had received, and he would reconfirm and recheck it himself. That to, must have been a miracle, as Muhammad, could neither read nor write. Regrettably, Mansoor failed to tell us that the verses written by Muhammad's companions, were not compiled until 70 years after Muhammad's death. Naturally, we need to accept that the verses written on, "separate pieces, scrapes of leather, thin flat stones, leaflets, palm branches and shoulder blades", were the same words written 70 years ago.

The "Holy Bible" was translated from Hebrew and Greek by 70 literature experts in 1100AD, but according to our world historian, Mansoor, it was corrupted by the 70 experts.

Mansoor, also states that; "the order of the verses, were revised and reconfirmed by the Prophet with archangel Jibraeel". Tell us Mansoor, when did this confirmation take place; was it while Muhammad was still alive, or was it 70 years after his death?
Lastly, Mansoor states, Usman, "borrowed the original manuscript of the Qur'an, which was authorized by the beloved Prophet (pbuh)". How was that possible, since the words of Muhammad were written on "separate pieces, scrapes of leather, thin flat stones, leaflets, palm branches and the shoulder blades"? How did Muhammad's words, written on a sundry of materials, suddenly become a "manuscript"?
