How come Islam is legit when it had only one prophet
Muhammad was the only prophet of islam.
While Judeo/Christianity had many prophets that wrote their scripture at the time event in their present day, and Bible being collection of books of the prophets is much more believable than one man claiming something.

I am not a believer in christianity, but i'd say compared to islam, it is much more reliable if i had to choose. I am not so sure when quran was written, but some says it was 200 years after muhammad's death.
So how can it be claimed relaible with that much time period lost.

Also according to islam, Jesus didn't die on a cross, i mean.

If you would believe something, what would make most sense.
Islam: 600 years after the death of Jesus Christ.

Or witnesses that where there during the time when he was alive, and was written down in scriptures not long after his death. Which was the start of the Christian movement.

I mean, muslims even claim that "Alexander the Great" was a muslim, which is a lie compared to historical fact.

So how come muslims haven't questioned this yet, or can they, huh, i wonder?
What do you think about it Smile
I am curious to hear what your opinion on this whole is. Feel free to share what you think?

What? Islam has counts Abraham, Moses, and Jesus as prophets, as well. They just consider Mohamed to be the last and greatest prophet. There are 25 of them listed here.

RE: How come Islam is legit when it had only one prophet
Hmm... Consider I think you might be misinformed, Chazz ... Islam insists that god sent messengers to every nation. A prophet is a messenger and Islam has claimed many prophets and indeed views Jesus and Moses to be among them.

But hey, glad to have you here.

Yeah, but the thing is that there are so much differences compared to biblically. And although i have not read the Jewish scriptures, i do believe they share similarities in the old testament atleast "Tanakh" the jewish bible. (But not read)
However, quran seems to twist many things when it comes to the old prophets. So that is why i am critical about the validity when it was only one man as the main focus of islam.

While in the old testament it does say things like Messiah will come, prophecies, so that i can see why it would add up to Jesus. I am just curious about the valid points, when much of the quran goes against the teachings of Judeo/Christianity. For example.
"Thou shalt not lie"
While in Quran it seems ok to lie to infidels.
That goes very much against what the monotheistic god in the Judeo/Christianity teaches?

Although all religion have different practices, that is true, otherwise they wouldn't be different. But when it comes to validity, i find islam low so far.

Both books are collections of myth and stories, neither is credible, so what is your point?

RE: How come Islam is legit when it had only one prophet
Mohammad is the last prophet, not the only prophet.

Which is something of a problem for the Mormons, who when it comes to prophets, seem to have an embarrassment of riches.

It's also why the Muslims have such a bent against the Baha'i.

Wasn't Joseph Smith the last prophet according to Mormonism. I have to be honest i have never read it, although i want too Tongue

Speaking of "The Last Prophet" have you heard of the prophet "Mani":

Yes, but when you compare it together, one is the black sheep in the family, and that is Islam. Not trying to say i believe the others either, but if you try to sort them out compared to scriptures, my reasons basically of how valid if you compare that together.

Edit:
Judeo/Christianity = Jewish Scriptures and Old Testament
Christianity = New Testament
Islam = Different from all. (Not the same as it is told by Jews or Christians)

But i do see what you are trying to say. I disagree with Christianity, not much against it as i am with Islam, but i have my reasons for not believing in it. That's about all Smile
