    Helo everyone,

    I have a question for the Chrisitan fellows. Why do you not consider Prophet Muhammed to be a prophet of GOD when it says in the Bible clearly that he is a prophet.

    One more question to everyone, I am very open minded , I always like to improve my understanding. Why should I leave my religion. Just because of Big Bang theory ?

    Out of interest, are you a Muslim? Admittedly I haven't read the Bible, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't say that Muhammed is a prophet of God.

    My understanding of how Judaism/Christianity/Islam interlink comes from one of my old RE teachers. He said that the Jews came first and wrote the Old Testament. The Christians believe the Old Testament and the New Testament of the Bible, but also that Jesus was the Son of God (which Jews don't believe). Apparently the Muslims are like the "third part" - you believe everything us Christians believe, but some additional things that we don't.

    I don't really understand what you're asking in the last part of your question, but if you're asking why people can still be religious and believe in the Big Bang, it's because some feel God started the Big Bang that created the universe.

    LOL the bible that was written a couple of hundred years before the coming of Muhammed. It no where within says that Muhammed is a Christian prophet, nor gives him any mention at all. It also states that there will be no more prophets until the end of time.

    Their idea is that because Christians got it so wrong God had to send another prophet. Seems strange they view God as being so stupid he needs to put another prophet down because he put him in the wrong place before... each to their own I guess.

    No you are 100 percent incorrect. They believe Prophet Muhammed is the highest in rank amongst all the Prophets. They believe his soul was made even before the creation of Universe. Even before Adam was made. So if you are saying they believe Propeht Muhammed was sent down because Christians got it wrong. Then I would like to see the proof.

    christianity says that the earth was built by god in 7 days (and the chruch also said that the earth was flat and we are the center of the universe).

    if the big bang created the universe the bible and crhistianity is wrong. Since it is proved wrong about such a fundamental foundation of the belief - it would be incredibly irrational* to believe in the other extraordinary things it claims, since its reliability had already been abolished. Either that or the followers would just claim that its a metaphore, as usual its not mean to be taken literally, again!! lol.

    *well, even more irrational

    So you think Jesus was a minor prophet and he is the highest prophet or what? Why was Jesus sent then? Why would the highest ranking prophet sleep with a 10 year old?

    Nah your wrong again. This is not what I THINK. This is what Muslims BELIEVE. There is a difference in believing and thinking.

    By the way, you should always provide sufficient evidence for your arguments. That is not what you have done. I asked you to provide evidence for your argument. You said Prophet Muhammed was sent down because Christians got it wrong. I want evidence!!!!.

    Then I will be very open to discuss everything with you.

    This is what i've been told, that Muhammed came to clear up Jesus' mistakes so to speak. Please enlighten me, why after Jesus was Muhammed needed? Why would God send down 2 prophets in direct contradiction to each other? For a laugh?

    Wrong!. Islam is not a third party and we dont believe in everything jews/christians believe in. Good example they believe that jesus is God we simply see him as a messenger.

    Person X: I've recovered from meningitis.
    Person Y: Thank God!
    Person X: No, it was not God. It was penicillin.
    Person Y: Thank God for penicillin, then.
    Person X: No, that was Alexander Fleming.
    Person Y: Thank God for Alexander Fleming, then.

    And etc etc etc. Some religious people just don't get it.

    Ok so you were told. Someone told you something very wrong.

    Lets get this right. Why was Prophet Muhammed needed after Jesus. So why was Jesus needed after Moses ? Or why was Moses needed before Gods own son (Jesus) ?

    So let me get this right.... you think men should be able to adopt children and bugger in the streets til the cows come home, but when somebody believes in something you don't they deserve mocking? You really are a knob.

    lol. I think the point of that logic is just to say that they're thankful that God eased the hardship they went through.

    The end of the bible states that there will be no more prophets, that Jesus is the last. Similarly the old testament predicts the coming of Jesus. There is no where in the new testament that states there will be a third coming, at least until the end of time that is.
