Carbon dating suggests ‘world’s oldest’ Koran is older than the Prophet Muhammad
Interesting research published at the weekend.

This apparently "lends credibility to the historical view that Muhammad and his followers collected text that was already in circulation to fit their own political and theological agenda, rather than receiving revelations from heaven."

Mirrors other more recent cults/religions I guess and probably older ones too.

Well it's a good thing that carbon dating doesn't work! I'd hate to imagine how much blood would be spilled if it did...

Quote:Carbon dating of a fragment from a Koran stored at a Birmingham library suggests that the book was produced between 568 and 645 A.D., said scientists at the University of Oxford, but Islamic scholars generally believe Muhammad lived between 570 and 632 A.D.

He came from his own book, that he wrote, kinda like the terminator. Considering what a pain in the ass Islam is, that's kinda scary. Evil_monster

It's easily explained when you realize that man created god, instead of the less likely other way around.

Muhammad never existed. They made up Islam from the moon-god- cult that already existed in Arabia. Robert Spencer has a number of YouTube videos on the subject. They cooked up Islam to unify the empire. It was a well known trick. Judaism and Christianity were good models for doing that, and how to make that work, successully.

I posted that video to my FBook page; hopefully my same fundie family that won't watch science videos will at least learn why Islam is BS. (They already think it is, but not for legitimate reasons.)

It's a good trick, 'cos they're bound to wonder about the Bible even as they like the conclusion about the Koran.

How can anyone become an atheist when we are all born with no beliefs in the first place? We are atheists because we were born this way.

Listen to Spencer's video, and refute his history, fine sir, or the other video.
Islam grew directly from the moon-god cult (the god Sin) from Arabia. There are multiple borrowed elements in Islam from its precursor. The three celestial object-godesses that were named in the Satanic Verses, are Sin's 3 daughters, (which is why Islamists get so wacked out when they hear about them). Despite the claim, it has really nothing to do with the "Abrahamic" god. Why is the crescent moon so ubiquitous ? Because "Al-Illa" was the crescent phase of the moon-god, Sin.
