Plato's revelation to Mansoor

Reader comment on item: Destroying Sculptures of Muhammad
in response to reader comment: Repeated duplication

Quote from Mansoor:"I stand firm on the matter of corruption of previous divine scriptures. The reason very clearly mentioned in Quran that those who were made responsible to guard the book themselves corrupted, altered and changed the message for their own petty purpose. The impact is so visible as the world is divided in different faiths."

And quote of Plato:"Why do you consider accepting something as divinely inspired because the complete scripture is available in its original language as logical? There are other scriptures like the Guru Granth Sahib which are available in the complete form in the original language. Why don't the Sikhs crow from the rooftops that they possess the only true revelation?"

Mansoor responded in attacking other religious books still did not add proof his own relgious book (the Q'uran) did not fall under the same type of corruption.

Plato giving respons that other religious books even in their original texts still do not povide proof that they are more or less authentic then the Q'uran.

Mansoor falling into that possible trap by replying (Quote from Mansoor):"You talked about different books of other religions like Sikhs in particular. For your kind information, Granth Sahib the Sikhs book includes the Hyms and notes by various saints based on their personal perception of Lord (Guru)..it is not perfect to call it of divine nature. Thus it is no where near to Quran..."

But the Q'uran was written by Mohammed's followers according to the revelations that Mohammed (PBUH) claimed to have recieved them from Gabriel and Gabriel had them given to it by Allah.

So the Shiks actually had lesser intermediates then the Q'uran between the original messenger and the book. Feel free to correct me in this.

Mansoor as you said that (quote from Mansoor):

"I am not tired of repeatedly answering you same questions which you throw again and again...

I can well understand your purpose, because newcomers on this website always find you with hard hitting questions..but they never know that they have been answered thousand times before..

I do hope Mansoor, you didn't fall for the same thing as well over and over again.

Regards,

Submitting....
