Question for muslims/chritians. What makes your religion right from the thousands of others? How do you rule out other gods like Zuse? Can you ruling out of Zuse apply to your god? To muslims: The Qur'an mentions that the sun sets in a muddy spring. Muslims try to cover this up by saying it's just poetic and therefore allegorical. However, that section of the Qur'an is describing a historical event and is not poetry. The Qur'an mentions that Pharoah ordered crucifixions, yet this is a Roman practice that did not start until much later. If the Qur'an contains even one error, it could not have been the work of a god. The Qur'an contains many errors and contradictions.

    There's a time and a place for everything including religion, generally religion helps adult individuals to deal with their culture or adopted one. What reality an individual ultimately experiences may be a function of their religion and may or may not exceed expectations. Many today believe that the universe is God and science is it's prophet denying the need of all previous Deities. President Jefferson made his own new testament by cutting out all the miracles. Actually I believe science when it say's the Universe came into existence on its own but I'm a firm believer of God the father and the Son and I don't cut out the miracles in the Old and New Testaments which many physician will tell you still occur today. This is why when they do experiments on Human Being they us blind and double blind studies. I'm a conscientious objector when comes to democracy and do not believe in violence even in self defense, my path that lead me hear has not been easy and I have my own religion not register with the State, but they have some understanding, possible control, of the one I was raised with.

    The bible specifically speaks of 17 points to determine the true church of Christ. 1. Christ organized the Church - Ephesians 4:11-14 2. The true church must bear the name of Jesus Christ - Ephesians 5:23, Colossians 1:18 3. The true church must have a foundation of apostles and prophets - Ephesians 2:19-20, 1 Cor. 12:28 4. The true church must have the same organization as Christ's Church - Ephesians 4:11-14 5. The true church must claim divine authority - Hebrews 5:4-10 6. The true church must have no paid ministry - Isaiah 45:13, 1 Peter 5:2 7. The true church must baptize by full immersion - Matthew 3:13-16 8. The true church must bestow the gift of the Holy Spirit by the laying on of hands - Acts 8:14-17 9. The true church must practice genuine divine healing - Mark 3:14-15 10. The true church must teach that God and Jesus are separate individuals - Heb. 1:3, Acts 7:55-56, John 17:11 & 20:17 11. The true church must teach that God and Jesus have bodies of flesh and bone - Luke 24:36-51, Acts 1:9-11 12.

    It's like the lottery you have a 1 out of 420000th chance that you religion is correct. If there was no idea of a god we would not think there was one. Religion is a fairy-tale.

    Are these questions rhetorical? What makes your religion right from the thousands of others? I would presume that ones religion is right and not wrong based on their definition. How do you rule out other gods like Zuse? Can you ruling out of Zuse apply to your god? Not applicable, if by definition the religious people are told they have more than one god then yes Zeus could be considered, but for monotheistic religion no. The "to Muslims" part is ludicrous. Let us take this statement: "The Qur'an mentions that Pharoah ordered crucifixions, yet this is a Roman practice that did not start until much later." You do not provide the surah nor ayah for us to confirm if this is truly said. Also based on the translations you have posted in the past, I doubt these hold any significance. Though you ask a good point, how do you know your religion is right. The simply answer, is through faith and belief, though it may not be scientific many things said in the Qur'an, Bible, and Torah actually held true when it when it went under scientific testing, though there has been contradictions in some cases.

    Actually crucifixion stated with the Greek before the Romans adopted the Greek gods and culture. Of course the Roman eventually went further in their Deification of their Emperor and if you read some of Paul's, a Roman citizen, he ends with "All the saints salute you, chiefly they that are of the Caesar's household", Philippian 4:22. This is in a sense of a US missionary, protected with US passports not God or Christ, and the indigenous people having an inordinate reverence for the origin of the pastor. This is why I think President Kennedy started the Piece Corp.

    Beg to differ, look up crucifixion origin's on the internet and you will find it was used from about 600 BC to 400 AD. The Greeks were the first to conquer the Mediterranean to eastern India creating the Hellenistic period in which the Romans eventually took over.

    I have to agree with with @KenLJW . Also if I may add in crucifixion is NOT a type of torture, as the objective of torture is to keep the person alive to inflict pain. Crucifixion is a method to terrorize people to not commit heinous crimes. Meanwhile torture is usually to obtain information.

    Supposedly jail/prison is to deter crime as capital punishment is supposed to inhibit the most heinous crimes. This system is based on man being not possessed and being rational but there seems to be some contradictions because some still do them. The international world have used MAD, mutual assured destruction, to prevent nuclear war but not war as proven in the last 60 years. Apparently in this real world the threat of hell or nuclear holocaust have little effect on some characters. The only real solution will ether be extinction or divine intervention.

    Christ said if two of you touching anything and agree it will be true. The Old Testament say's seek and yea shall find. The scientific community have been using these for four hundred years to discover the workings of the universe while religions try to seek their God. What's come about for so many is the Universe is God and science is it's Prophet because of our secular education and democratic society.
