The author is up against God!,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Origins of the Koran: Classic Essays on Islam's Holy Book (Hardcover)
I must say the author has done his research but the bottom line is who would you rather believe - man or God. When God says in the Quran that it is He who has revealed the Quran, I think I'd put my bets on the Lord. There are verses in the Quran that ask man to create even a single verse like those in the Quran, if indeed the Quran is product of human creation. It's an open challenge!

The bottom line is actually - no text is beyond criticism, especially those written by people pretending to be messengers from god.

This review is really scraping the bottom of the barrell.When the only argument that can be summoned is "I'm(or God's) right,you're wrong",you know somebody can't defend their point of view.

"..........if indeed the quran is product of human creation"
The quran in 68:01 speaks of "NUN"
Nun is explained in the tafsir as follows: 'allah swears by the Nun, which is the WHALE that carries the earths on its back while in water' - Ibn Abbas
One of the Arabian gods was the Hoot god, which means the 'WHALE', the Arabians believed the Hoot god was a "DIVINE WHALE" which within other deities carried the earth. These myths are included in old Arabian script known at the time of mohammed called 'Sahift Lukman'
I would suggest therefore that the idea that the earth rests on the BACK OF A HUGE WHALE is Indeed of "HUMAN CREATION" - which surely beggars the question is your quran "from God"?

what a silly fool you are. you think anything in that bile-filled text is the word of god...just because the text itself says so! you are so gullible .
as to that "open challenge" you mention, dont you see that for the con-trick it is? no-one however brilliant their writing could win, they would be rejected out of hand....if only because the book ITSELF decalres that no-one could equal it.....and that therefor those deciding the matter would HAVE TO dismiss it, however brilliant the writing was! some of you muslims must just be living in fairyland -- but i suppose that thats what happens when you deny any criticism...and dont teach people to think for themselves....they just accept what theyre taught as gospel, and reject anything that contradicts the brainwashing they have received in religious education.
this just shows the illogic and ignorance-producing power of religious books [and particularly the koran] when people take it literally.
here's churchill's take on the matter:
Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.

Here is a sura which is better than any in the Qur'an, The Torah or The Bible:
In the name of Allah, the compassionate, the merciful. Say prophet that We will show our compassion for humanity by bringing peace and joy to all people, believers and unbelievers alike. Say prophet, that heavenly love, harmony and happiness will rain down on them all from this moment until the end of time.
