My dear phonetics your arguments are bogus.

I know my Arabic very well ( a language that you do not know. You speak Urdu maybe? a language that your allah does not know as he is an Arabian God) and I can tell you that the Qur'an is nothing but poor literature. It is a confused and confusing book that is poorly edited. It is full of mistakes in grammar (eg: ina hadhan lasahiran), synatx (eg: ina hadhan lasahiran again), and proper spelling of Arabic words (eg: qul). It is disjointed and poorly edited. And allah is in the habit of repeating himeself ad nauseum (eg: the two garden tradition). It claims to be written in 3Arabi faseeh when this is far from the truth. The Qur'an is full of foreign words (eg: Tur, and Rum from Syriac, Hawariyuun from Ethiopic, Zakat from Hebrew, Sarat from Latin) and strange words (eg: Ilaf, kalala, ababeel, sijeel) . It also claims to be kitab mubeen (eg: the case of those strange letters at the begining of some suras) which is very far from the turth as you cannot really understand the Qur'an without reading the commnetaries and most of what such commentaries porvide is bogus. So much for a kitab mubeen.

What is most absurd is that Allah or is it the poor theologian Muhammad, the Arabian war lord, caravn raider and wannabe prophet plagiarized the secular literature of the Greeks and the Syrians (eg: the story of "The seven sleepers of Ephesus" that Muhammad calls the story of Ahl al-kahf, and the story of ":The Romance of Alexander" which Muhammad calls the story of Dhul Qarnain) and he had the audacity to call stories of fiction the word s of the god of the universe.

Karen Armstrong? She ain't no historian
