Taking Christianity alone (i.e., simply the word of Christ), what 'bad' comes from it? You lost me here... He is simply taking the law (i.e., Judaism) and showing you the 'way.' I understand you are a-religious, but do some research before spewing.

On the other side of this is a 'man' who became mocked at his political movement and used pieces of each existing religion of the day (it's too bad that they didn't know of budhism in Medina at the time, cause that would have ended up in the Sura's too) - to create the 'xyz party' - this party eventually became a 'movement else death' then when enough people were included, a religious cult, then a religion by about 1200 (600 years to create a religion). When they learned Christianity existed in addition to Paganism and Judaism, the Koran expanded to include this new 'threat' to the political movement.

Now, 2009, we have 1 billion people following a political movement, worshiping a moon god (not abrahams god) - or in layman's terms, a well orchestrated soup can game. There is a reason why the Koran is so big, when you articulate something that is based on proving others are wrong, you tend to verbalize more to prove your case, even though you could have simply done it the way Christ did - through actual divinity. Ask any Philosophy scholar about Christ's 'Words' - they are the only words that cannot be challenged or usurped by 'man kind.' If you've heard of the phrase 'purely divine,' that's where it comes from.

Good luck to all of you in your quest to find yourselves.
