[quote=exoflare]Simple request: I would ask that all other non-Muslims to please NOT reply to this thread as I think it would only make it easier for the post to get de-railed, even if that is not your intention… this is just how I would like it. Thank you for understanding.
I’m going to make this as simple as possible. Muslims, please give me any objective reason why you think that Mohammed was some sort of prophet and that the Quran is from God. Note, key word “objective”. You have to have some kind of empirical evidence, measured by a consistent standard, and not just based upon “feelings”.
Every time I have tried to ask this about either Mohammed or the Quran in the past, it inevitably resorts to any of several logical fallacies or attempts to change the subject. These will immediately be pointed out and discarded as irrelevant to the topic. Otherwise, I’m willing to discuss anything fairly, one response at a time, and I agree not to resort to ad hominems if everyone else will extend me the same courtesy.
That’s about it! Like I said, for Catholics or any other non-Muslims I’d appreciate it if you don’t reply directly to this thread so that it can more easily stay on-topic, but if you want to start some kind of a parallel side-thread or whatever that’s completely fine with me. Thanks for your cooperation!
okay letme try to be the first to answer…
-Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was the last Prophet for ALL of mankind and last Prophet in general… and he said there will be false prophets after him…which has come true…
-The Qu’ran mentions about Noah (pbuh) and his ark…and instead of saying the whole world was flooded…it says only the part of the land he was from was flooded… makes a LOT more sense.
-Prophet Muhamamd (pbuh) was illiterate (a fact) and ther is no way someone can come up with anything even remotely close to the Qu’ran.
-the Qu’ran confirms the virgin birth of Isa(pbuh) and his miracles. as well miracles of other Prophets
-I have not found any discrepancy or any contradiction in the Qu’ran… any book that is revealed over a period of 23 years will have SOME discrepancy or change of tone, etc.
-The Qu’ran has not been changed , not even one letter
-It is said it will be easy to memorize the Qu’ran…millions ofpeople have done it…evennon Arabic speakers
-Prophet Muhammad’s (pbuh) conquest of Mecca and other towns even at times when he was wayyy undermanned.
-Islam surviving thousand+ years, virtually unchanged
-Prophet Muhammad is a descendent of Abraham (pbuh) just like other major Prophets
there are other reasons as well. i understand some of these might look subjective and some you can debate and find articles in antiIslamic sites.
