I refer to Mohammed's weblog dated October 24, 2005 at 02:03.

You are very right. Muslims core belief is that prophet was a perfect human being who lived his life following Allah's day to day guidance. According to the quran, Allah was very supportive of his only prophet. He made it halal for him to marry a 6-year girl. He made him halal for him to have outside marital sex with his wife's slave - Mariam, the Coptic Girl. Allah gave his prophet permission to break treaties. Allah is most merciful. I fact, even the first muslims felt suspicious when Allah's words begin to contradict each other. But, lo and behold, Allah has a new decree in Sura 2-106 "Whenever we abrogate a verse, or order that it be forgoten, we issue a better one or similiar one. Do you know that God is capable of everything?" I'm sure you know, Allah knows best.

Yes, the quran sometimes refer to "god" as "we". This must be a legacy of ancient Greek mythology. Don't you know, Alexander the Great was muslim. He went to the end of the world and saw that the sun sets in muddy springs. The scientific quran is never wrong. Just abrogated. You see, Allah needs improvement. He will introduce new verses here and there. Unfortunately, Allah did not prevent his last prophet from dying a premature death. Food poisoning from one of his captive wives. Funny, Allah needs to abrogate some of his verses because he has better ones coming up and yet he allowed his messenger to die a sad death. In fact, his burial was even degrading. Buried in the middle of night in a locked room at the eve of property inheritance struggle and a civil war among the muslims.

Yes, Mohammed, your prophet was not a prone sinner as Allah said in quran "obeying messenger is obeying Allah". Allah made it halal for him to do anything. He has no sin. Thus, he does not need to die as he has no sin. No poison will kill him. No evil charm can affect him. Wow, powerful messages. In fact, there was even a divine revelation of regulating uninvited visitors to the prophet's house and eating his food. Allah is very personal with his beloved prophet. Can I say that your messenger represents Allah? Can I say that he is the only one who had heard Allah's voice? Can I say that, there is no other proof that Allah exist except what your prophet claimed? Since Allah has always come to the side of Mohammed, even though he had caused scandals amongst the community, that Allah is actually the invention of Muhammed?

Don't get me wrong. I do believe in God. I do believe in the Creator of the Universe. Allah is not him.

In conclusion, I agree with you. Your prophet was the living quran. He is the quran. The quran contains words that he uttered. The words that he cited. The words that he claimed came from God. A God that granted him no miracle. A God that allowed him to die a premature death. A God that created non-believers and led them astray. Then, intructs the muslims to kill them wherever they may find them. Allah has created a world of gladiators. Let the war between muslims and kuffirs begin. Allah is most merciful. Allah knows best.

A religion that broke into civil war a day after their prophet died. A religion that now has 200 interpretations. A religion that seizes attention in Bali, London, Thailand, India, Russia, sigh - every where.
