    Deism and 750 verses of the Holy Quran

    Islam and the Holy Quran are much closer to Deism than Christianity or the Bible.

    The Holy Quran makes a very lucid case for Deism or the Creator God. The very second verse of the Holy Quran claims Allah to be the Maker and Sustainer of the universe and then scores of verses lay down arguments for the Quranic deist claims. The Holy Quran opens itself to the humanity with these verses:

    In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful. All praise belongs to Allah, Lord of all the worlds. (Al Quran 1:1-2)

    Were Jesus’ disciples ‘illiterate peasants?’

    The dogma of resurrection is based on the eye witness testimony recorded 2000 years ago. But what if the Biblical account is not by the eyewitnesses, then it falls in the category of hearsay. CNN examines with reference to a recent book by Bart Ehrman, Forged: Writing in the Name of God–Why the Bible’s Authors Are Not Who We Think They Are: Ehrman doesn’t confine his critique to Paul’s letters. He challenges the authenticity of the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and John. He says that none were written by Jesus’ disciples, citing two reasons.He says none of the earliest gospels revealed the names of its authors, and that their current names were later added by scribes.Ehrman also says that two of Jesus’ original disciples, John and Peter, could not have written the books attributed to them in the New Testament because they were illiterate.“According to Acts 4:13, both Peter and his companion John, also a fisherman, were agrammatoi, a Greek word that literally means ‘unlettered,’ that is, ‘illiterate,’ ’’ he writes.
