People here have a tendency to say that the Muslim religion is a sect of the Christian religion and that they worship the same god as other Christians. This is, however, false. I’ve studied a bit of the history and skimmed the Qur’an, and I will go ahead and explain this. (Mind you, I’m NOT a master of their religion and don’t claim to be.)

However, this is untrue. Muhammad, the writer of Qur’an wanted his religion to appeal to the Christians and Jews, so he manipulated his concoctions to intergate their religions into it. He used this to convince many people that Allah was in fact the same thing as Yahweh. However, the Jewish and Christian churches looked at it and said, “Yeah, umm, no.”

Muhammad himself admitted that Qur’an contradicts itself and was written to encourage loyalties according to the current political situations. However, he also says, “But I am the prophet so its okay.” (Obviously I’m not citing him word for word.)

Now, I’m not saying it is or isn’t true. I am, however, expressing my opinion that the Muslim religion is a lot like the Catholic religion was in the middle ages. I think it’s a tool to manipulate people, and you’re free to feel that way about my religion, and I can’t understand how anybody falls for it. Like scientology.

Also, I cannot comprehend what the point of being put away with 42 virgins for an -eternity- is. They’re only going to be virgins for like… a month or two. After that it’s just being trapped with a bunch of chicks for the rest of existence.

:p

Anyway, that's my horribly controversial opinion. And no, I’m not just saying this crap in light of current events. I was simply encouraged to look into it when somebody told me that our religions were the same but with different names. Which is utter crap.

Christian extremists hate Muslims and Jews.

I'd say the religion doesn't seem to be as... "mature" as Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism and ect.

I won't take away anyone's right to believe in it though, that's their choice.

You're right.

But both Christianity and Judaism have matured enough to the point where most of the followers resist killing people because of it.

All religions produce their crazy psychos though.

In the end, I wouldn't give up my Christian faith just because someone who calls themself a Christian murders someone.

That's the problem with the world though.

One member of a religion that does something considered wrong, makes every other member "wrong".

Some people think that Christianity, Judaism, or Muslim stand for killing and the like.

Ignorance.

Religion in the beginning starts off as a convenient political excuse. As time goes around the descendants of those who used religion as an excuse come to think that such behavior is how one maintains one's religion, and continues the cycle.

i'm a muslim but i had to tell u r wong from the beginning. qur'an didnt written by muhammad. and i had to tell that muhammad cant read or write. quran evolve from bible. that's y most of the contents are the same. the rest of the contents were added after muhammad recieved prophecies. it was recited back. i saw many false inforegarding islam in website such as aboutislam.com. and it's true that muslim extremist hate christians and jew but i cant blame them coz they were born that way mostly the arabians. a real muslim teaching is like a japanese christians.
oh yeah, a note here, whenever ppl saying something such as "the sun sink in murky water", "muhamad rape a 9 year old girl" or "....it was from bukhari", ignore them coz i met so many ppl coz they trying to decieve you.

religion is nothing but a human tool; for manipulation or for spreading hope... either way... it's just a tool to accomplish certain agendas. agnostic much?

Islam . Christianity . Judaism .. history of bloodbath and power struggles and still ongoing.

freedom of religion is okay, but why do muslim extremist have to force their religion on others. and they call it the holy war against those who dont believe. i mean look at the christians, they believe in God and Jesus but they dont force their religion on others, and dont use stuff as suicide bombing. here on tv there wont be a day that there was no suicide bombing by a muslim extremist. a lot of innocent people die because of it.

of course you have people that are extremist in all kinds of stuff,all over the world. lately in the netherlands all kind of famous dutch people get killed by muslim extremist because they disagreed with something in the muslim religion, some politics have to hide out with maximum security because they fear for being killed.christian or muslim or buddhist and so on, i think its good to have something you believe in. but if you have the free will to choose a religion,then let other people have their own free will too. dont force anything on them be it christians or muslims.

i'm a moslem also and i also agree this post is already wrong from the very beginning. eventhough lots of extreme moslem hate christians and jews, i don't hate them, i also have friend with different kind of culture and religion, so i hope if you haven't learned Qur'an deeply, don't judge us like that. actually if you learn phsycology a bit, you will see that no matter what religion you trust, nationality you have, your behaviour is depend on your own. so i hope you erase your bad thought about moslem and noted that we all here because we have the same crush for asian movies, don't disturb it with anything in the name of religion, races or nationality.
