Hi Keith:

I've studied the Bible for 39 years and studied the Qur'an for 7 years and refer to the Bible and Qur'an on a daily basis. The reason for studying the Qur'an prompted me when on Sept 11,2001, 19 Muslims hijacked 4 passenger jets; 2 of the hijacked jets destroyed the Twin Towers in New York and killed 2,974 innocent people; the 3rd jet crashed into the Pentagon, and the 4th jet crashed on the ground killing everyone on the plane.

Therefore, I'm not debunking any religion. But I believe that I understand true Christianity and Islam. And I've never heard a Christian refer to GOD as "Allah". Islam has as its focus of worship a deity by the name of "Allah". The Muslims claim that Allah in pre-Islamic times was the biblical God of the Patriarchs, Prophets, and Apostles. In fact, he was the Moon-god.

Archaeologists have uncovered temples to the Moon-god throughout the Middle East. From the mountains of Turkey to the banks of the Nile, the most widespread religion of the ancient world was the worship of the Moon-god. In the first literate civilization, the Sumerians have left us thousands of clay tablets in which they described their religious beliefs. The ancient Sumerians worshipped a Moon-god who was called many different names. The most popular names were Nanna, Suen, Asimbabbar and "Al-lāh". Al-lāh's symbol was the crescent moon. Al-lāh, the moon god became the god of Muslims when Muhammad began teaching the Arabs in Mecca to worship Al-lāh as the god of the world.
