Alright, those of you who know me know I'm atheist, but there was something I read in this forum awhile ago that intrigued my interest. I meant to ask a question about it earlier but I had my reservations about doing so. Before I even ask this question I want to point out I do not ask this question to start an anti-Islam thread, nor do I want this to devolve into an anti-Islam thread, nor do I ignore the possibility that this could very easily degenerate into just that sort of thread. So, without further ado, for our biblical scholars, how does Islam (or perhaps specific sects of Islam) correspond to the prophetic New Testament (or even Old, if there is anything in there) descriptions of the anti-Christian religion that will preceed the apocalypse? I'm looking for both similarities and differences.
