Sword and Justme,

Let's see how we got to this point.
First you attacked our Prophet, quoting concocted things. Another one, quite patiently tried to explain to you about those things. That brought the issue of the birth of Jesus. JustMe said she/he did not believe that Jesus and Holy spirit were God. Sword pointed out about the Trinity. Adib pointed out that the concept of Trinity is there in your religion. Sword asked JustMe not to go deep into the subject. JustMe also said that she/he was not willing to discuss religion. Sword, being unable to state the number and nature of God believed by the Christians (whether it was ONE or Three or Three-in-One or One-in-Three, etc) announced proudly, like a real 'Defender of the Faith' that he did not believe in any religion at all (well,that's safe for someone who would like to run away from a subject he doesn't know..). Then both Sword and JustMe clearly spelled out that they would not discuss about religious matters any more.

What do we see next moment? Both of them are now back to the religious issues. No, not about their own faith (they can't explain the basic things about it) but attacking someone else's religion !!!

So what do you want now? Discuss religion? Lets discuss about God first, then we'll talk about messengers, then followers, then we'll talk about present day's 'islamic extremist'. Or we can discuss all issues at a time.

Another thing I thought I would point out to Sword and all participants at this board. Sword said that Christians and Jews have similar views about God. No my dear, don't mix your semi-pagan theories with Judaism. Christianity is not a natural continuation of Judaism. No matter what you say, Christianity broke away from Judaism. And there is no way you can say that the concept of God is similar in Judaism and Christianity. Jews believe in ONE GOD ONLY. On the other hand, there is no consensus about the nature and number of God(s) in the followers of Christianity. Comparing Christian concept of divinity with that of Judaism would be like comparing Jesus (PBUH) with Hindu God Krishna.
