Ive read somewhere that Mohammed actually contradicted himself and had previous text changed to fit. Hardly inspired writings.

Well you know, it's frightfully easy to get caught out when your God is a fictitious entity!
Isn't it ironic... dontcha think?
I read somewhere the same thing, but with the writers of the Bible instead.

I heard the same thing for about every religion I cared enough to google up.

"I've read somewhere" (But no citation about source or author). That could mean anything from something scribbled on a bathroom door, to a random interpretation of the stars in the sky forming letters. It also has about the same chance of being true.
I could write something on a paper napkin, and later quite truthfully say "I read somewhere,,,,,, ". See where I'm going with this, Hootmon?

I think that would be the famous Satanic Verses which Rushdie used as part of his novel of the same name.

Actually, the Qur'an wasn't written down in its entirety until after Mohammed's death, during the caliphate of Abu Bakr.
I read somewhere that Jesus ate babies. It didn't make it into later Biblical translations.

Much like the Bible.

@ dr y
during the caliphate of Abu Bakr.
This must have been the onset of the military phonetic alphabet.
> and had previous text changed to fit.<
Sort of like your own King Jimmy's book, eh, Hootmon?

In many European countries they teach how the Holy books were compiled, comparitive religion and philophecies. With a better grasp on those historys Atheism usually wins out.
Churchs are against these teachings but churchs aren't in control.
In America and Canada any suggestion of courses like those are attacked by all church groups.
The Bible contradicts itself, in the first two books. No, I didn't read it somewhere, it's all there for anyone to see, in the Bible itself.
I've read many contradictions in the Bible itself, and know there are several mistranslations of the original text. Hardly inspired writings.

Muhammad was just another average Joe until he started seeing visions of God. Same with Jesus. Muslims and Christians should be pals, derp.
