Why do I as a muslim feels the Christians and Jews are giving much better and clearer solutions than Muslims?

you can read the posts again and may be that will change your mind? what i have read, most of the non-muslims are here just enjoying the abuse every other non-muslim is throwing at islam and muslims. they keep repeating the same baseless accusations against islam. (basically strawmans arguments-they tell us what we believe or what the translation of this/that verse says and attack that and expect us to defend that positon:why should we?) if you call these much better and clearer solutions what can anyone say?

For muslims the Quran is the touchstone, so if they quote it to support their point of view, what's wrong with that? Christians and Jews do it all the time. you don't find that wrong?

we quote from the Quran not only because we beleive it to be from God, but it says sensible things.

Quran is not a book for muslims. It is a book from God. and in the very begining it says it is a guidance for those who are aware (of their surroundings) muttaqueen
