Quote# 654

In reading the Koran, there is no way to reconcile that god with the God of Christianity and Judaism. Allah is not YHWH. I admit to being completely baffled that anyone could even think they are the same. That is tantamount to calling God a liar and I don't want to be around when they have to face God for that.

Read it before you make ignorant claims.

As ScienceIsGreen said, it IS the same god; \"Allah\" is just \"God\" in Arabic. Islam is derived from the same roots as Christianity; heck, Jesus is considered one of its major prophets!

As for God being a liar, well, there is a good case for that as well in the Bible; Adam and Eve lived after eating the forbidden fruit, didn't they? The serpent was the honest one!

In any case, the issue is even more insanely moot if God isn't even real, and to date there's still no evidence of him. I'd say that your priorities need some serious reconsideration.

Allah's my younger brother, actually. He's been a bit kookoo lately.

Well, to be fair, they did die....eventually. Way, way, WAAAAAAAY after the end of that day.

But that's a lot like a quote I read somewhere. "I went to a fortune teller, and after a little while, she looked up and said 'bless you.' 'I didn't sneeze,' I said. 'You will,' she replied. Two weeks later, sure enough, I sneezed!"

What s/he means: The translation didn't remind me of the KJV, so there's clearly nothing connecting the two.

1) You've never read the Koran or
2) You've never read the Bible

Which is par for the course at RR

In reading the Koran, there is no way to reconcile that god with the God of Christianity and Judaism.

Well, then following was probably one of the parts you "inadvertently" overlooked:

[21.83] And Job, when he cried to his Lord, (saying): Harm has afflicted me, and Thou art the most Merciful of the merciful.

[21.84] Therefore We responded to him and took off what harm he had, and We gave him his family and the like of them with them: a mercy from Us and a reminder to the worshippers.

[21.87] And Jonah, when he went away in wrath, so he thought that We would not straiten him, so he called out among afflictions: There is no god but Thou, glory be to Thee; surely I am of those who make themselves to suffer loss.

[21.88] So We responded to him and delivered him from the grief and thus do We deliver the believers.

[21.89] And Zakariyah, when he cried to his Lord: O my Lord leave me not alone; and Thou art the best of inheritors.

[21.90] So We responded to him and gave him Yahya and made his wife fit for him; surely they used to hasten, one with another In deeds of goodness and to call upon Us, hoping and fearing and they were humble before Us.

[21.91] And she who guarded her chastity, so We breathed into her of Our inspiration and made her and her son a sign for the nations.

[21.92] Surely this Islam is your religion, one religion (only), and I am your Lord, therefore serve Me.

[21.93] And they broke their religion (into sects) between them: to Us shall all come back.

[21.94] Therefore whoever shall do of good deeds and he is a believer, there shall be no denying of his exertion, and surely We will write (It) down for him.


Sounds like pretty standard biblical stuff. Besides they say there's only one god and you say there's only one god then why doesn't it occur to you fools that it could bloody well be the one and the same asshole playing you both (Christians and Muslims) for chumps?

In Biblical times, the common language of the area was Aramaic. 'God' in Aramaic is 'Elah'. Elah. Allah. Coincidence? You decide.

Also, right up to today, members of the Church of Malta (one of the earliest established Christian churches - next to the Coptic Church in Egypt) refer to God as Allah.

Not exactly an Emeritus Professor of Theology are you eh, onesheep? I would never presume to call myself a theologian, nor an expert in religious history, yet what does the fact that I know the above facts tell you & everyone on Ruptured Retards?

We're still waiting for you to tell us who you got to that conclusion. I guess you DIDN'T read the Koran.
