Hello Infidel, you wrote: "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"?"

You also wrote: "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."

Good questions!!!

But, I would ask you not to confuse the defenders of faith with facts.(snicker) Facts are only a minor inconvenience in the whole scheme of Islamic jurisprudence.
