    The scenario is you're freezing, you're snowed in a library and the powers gone out. The library is full of Bibles and Qurans, all you have in your pocket is a box of matches. If you had to burn either a pile of Bibles or a pile of Qurans to save your life, which would you burn and why?

    The only rule is that you can only burn one or the other, not both.

    I'm Muslim so the Qur'ans. It's better burn Allahs name in attempt to save your life than act against another religion.

    The Quran because it contains the most hatred, prejudice and general bull****. The bible isnt much better though I suppose.

    The fact is it is a library means there are other books available too. If it was just bibles and Qurans present then it wouldnt be a library, more an erm...religious bookshop?

    Burn any other books apart from 2 Holy books - its what any decent individual with morals and even teh slightest bit of decency would do

    Race does not pick a religion for you. If you're a smart person someone of little to no intelligences, I am sure you can choose which religion you'd like to follow.

    I am an atheist...I could easily burn either book, doesnt bother me either way.

    Haven't you EVER heard of realistic? At least make the hypothetical scenario slightly realistic!! I dont know about you - but I can't seem to understand why even hypothetically, a LIBRARY would have loads of copies of just TWO books!

    Neither. I'm a Muslim and I would never burn my Holy Book. Yet, I would not burn the Bible either because we share similar beliefs. Anyhow, WHAT A STUPID THREAD!!!
    The OP clearly wants to be provocative.

    Are you insane?????????????????????


    You're not meant to throw away a piece of paper on which is written Allah, let alone BURN it because you're cold. If you're a true Muslim, then you should know that patience is virtue. So it's better to wait patiently for Allah's mercy.
    If you die, you will die in full knowledge that you respected the word of God.
