has anyone here read the torah, koran or bible or other?
I read the Bible a couple of times at least.
I well played plan for a religion.
Yes and yes.
I've read the bible, because it was the religious text I was raised on. Most of the other religious texts and material I've studied seriously were in Eastern philosophy and Buddhism. I think they all have merit when used as an instructive manual for a decent way to live your life. They also have (imo) historical merit, although I feel pretty certain that most of them have been edited and manipulated down through the ages, by men and religious institutions who had their own ideas about how things should be.
Nope, nope, nope.
I guess I have nothing to discuss here LOL.
Move along folks...
Martin, the Torah is more or less the same thing as the Old Testament.
I have a biblical question, if anyone would care to field it:
What is the message of all those boring "so-and-so begat so-and-so" passages?
It's to show how inbred christians are.
Each of those in their entirety along with significant portions of Buddhist, Taoist, and Confucianist texts. Why?
Well then you are just the person to ask questions of, Kalam.
Approximately when was each written? Does the Bible (Old and New Testaments) pre-date the Koran?
Is Jesus mentioned in the Koran? If so, in what way? Mohammed is not mentioned in the Bible, is he?
A Nosey Person
I don't understand the question
