Atheists and other Christian-bashers love to claim that the story of Jesus was stolen from Pagan religion

 

 

 

It is interesting that Islam is actually nothing more then a cheap counterfeit of Christianity.

 

You have a Jesus figure, who ascended to heaven.

You have a reworking of Gabriel, into a "600 winged" angel who gave (dictated) the Bible (Quran) to Muhammad.

Its interesting that Muhammad is given the title of "founder" of Islam, when in fact it was his tribe that designated him with the title.... and "allah" as the single God, after previously worshipping 6oo Godz.

"allah" is the "moon god", which is wby the muslim flag and most middle eastern flags associated with allah, show a moon, stars, ect.

So, you have a counterfeit of Christianity, with a god, a prophet, angels, a bible, and other similarities.

"nothing new under the sun".

Muhammad was a trader and his travels had him interacting with both Jews and Christians in the regions he traded in, so he for sure interacted with many Jews and Christians. He probably learned a lot about Judaism and Christianity early on in his life because of this. Also, his first wife Khadeejah had ties to Christians and according to the hadiths, her cousin Waraqah was a Christian and could write in Hebrew. It's quite possible this is where Muhammad learned about what was written in the Torah and the Bible. There was no translation of the complete Bible in Arabic in the 6th century, so Muhammad would have had to rely on others to tell him or read to him what the scriptures said.

There is no doubt that Muhammad used a combination of the teachings of Judaism and Christianity to twist into a religion of his own. If you read the Qur'an you will find many similarities to what is written in the Bible. Some of the writings are so close that it almost seems that they were plagiarized from the Bible. Had there been a complete translation of the Bible in Arabic prior to the 6th century, it's quite possible that Islam never would have existed, especially since Muhammad had close relations with Christians. It seems like Muhammad just used bits an pieces of the Bible and created his own book by filling in the blanks. Since there were some portions of the Bible written in Arabic at the time, that's a possibility. 

Either way, Islam is just one of many false religions in the world and is from a false prophet. It's certainly not from God.
