Reader comment on item: Churches in Saudi Arabia?
in response to reader comment: Small doses of myth?

Submitted by Samer Suhkun (United Arab Emirates), Apr 30, 2008 at 14:29

You say religion is myth. jesus, mohammad, also myths

So you don't believe that Jesus was born miraculously without the intervention of man. that he has no father but only a mother?

you do not believe in the miracles jesus did , such as curing the blind, and raising the dead?

I do believe in that, but I will not talk on this.

I will talke about the Quran, and I will forget about the social reforms and political reforms in it.

I will talk that it is known that Mohammad was illiterate yet he talks about

1) Medical sciences - Cure by Honey and dates - embroyology and development of fetus - the flies that have the dote and antidote, the disease and the cure - the cure by olives and figs

2) Astronomy - the moving apart of galaxies - the big bang theory

3) Geology - the mountains and their roots inside the earth, like the pegs of a tent - The Jordan valley and the lowest land on Earth - the rain and the waters drops effect on the soil

4) The spinder and that the she spider that makes the webs

5)How a person feels when he fly in high altitudes, breathing problems.

6) That man will reach the moon by a rocket that has many stages

7) that there will be 11 planets circling the Sun

8) That the sun moves, not stagnant and that the moon and the earth move too - that the earth is round

I can write a book on the miracles that are written in the Quran, but what we know now is not all what is known

When Mohammad wrote about these things he was illitrate as you know - he did not talk about social and political reforms alone, but also on many many many things - how can an illiterate person talk about such things that he no previous knowledge of, UNLESS it was from GOD

Think about it

There is no Myth about what Mohammad brought, or what JEsus and the other Prophets brought, they organised the sociaty with their teaching (That is from God)

Did you think God create us and not take care about our welfare and well being, and that justice should prevail. imagine there are no laws on this earth, what will happen to the Human race??? God's laws that are followed by over 1/2 the population of this planet
