Here is what confuses me about monotheistic religions, they're all based on same principles. Islam was born in 7th century, and believers think that there were 25 prophets before Muhammad, including Jesus and David himself (renamed to Isa and Davud). I am muslim and I was never able to understand this whole "25 prophets" thing... I mean do they think that Jesus was muslim or smth?!?! This is just example, all monotheistic religions are based on similar "stories" and "legends"... When I read Bible and compared it to Quran I was suprised to see how many stories were basically same... So here is my theory on religions: Stories and legends from "holy books" of "modern religions" were basically taken over from older civilizations(like Egypt, Mesopotamia etc.) and they were transmitted and transformed into different versions. discus9

This, basically. "The creator" might simply be impossible to comprehend while stuck in three dimensions, but it's also replicated within our universe (like with everything else from micro to macro) as the great void of nothingness, which spawned everything in our bubble we call the universe. So if you want to imagine "the creator" you should think of darkness instead of light, endless sea of possibilities, a bubble of all possible information from which everything manifests.

a prophet is somebody who is believed to be in contact with god. christians, jews and muslims basically believe in the same god and mohammed and jesus thus spoke with the same god, its just that mohammed "created" a new religion because he didn't agree with some believes of christianity.

Islam/Christianity/Judaism are variations of the same root religion
2020-11-27 00:10
Yeah, sure. Many Christian holidays were adaptation of pagan holidays (to better spread of the religion). Christmas itself is in the day it is because it was meant to overshadow a big pagan holiday. (solestice If I'm not mistaken) Every religion takes something from "old" ones. Rome's mithology is pretty much a rip-off of Greek mithology for example

"This is just example, all monotheistic religions are based on similar "stories" and "legends"... When I read Bible and compared it to Quran I was suprised to see how many stories were basically same..." well yeah because they have the same origins? jesus was a jew, his followers are called christians. jesus christ is a seen as a prophet in islam, not as the son of god. its believed that mohammed knew a lot about christianity and judaism and adopted many of their rituals and believes. he actually believed that muslims and christians are very smiliar but he didnt agree with christianities idea of trinity, as for him it meant that christians believe in 3 gods, not in one
2020-11-27 00:17
the reason the bible and Quran are slightly similar is that the one who wrote it, aka Muhammed, was a merchant and had caravans with his uncle and father, went in Israel and other places, and combined the religions into one. Also, the bible was written was so many people over thousands of years and all of these stories in the bible all connect to one story namely Christ's sacrifice for us. So your "theory" about religions coming from older civilizations is true when it comes to Islam, but not the bible.

the christian flood narrative is based partly on the epic of gilgamesh. there are too many parts about the flood & the boat that are so similar that they can't be ignored.
2020-11-27 12:52
Most convenient example would be afterlife/hell&heaven. Because most ancient religions belived in it (Egypt, Mesopotamia etc.)
2020-11-27 16:45
if we're talking about originality we'd need to talk about judaism instead of christianity. christianity after all is just a much more successful branch of judaism. it turns out that writing an ethnocentric nationalistic mythos doesn't really appeal to anyone else but the jews. in fact some gospels in the new testament were written just to appeal to a larger roman audience. just better marketing i guess.

The Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings be upon Him) was unable to read or write. He could not have simply read the Bible and wrote the Quran without knowledge of others. As for the caravan trip, that was when he was a younger kid, I doubt he could remember all of the stories of the Prophets from the trip and then 25-30 years later announce that he is a Prophet and know each Prophet and what they did.

The Quran borrows from the Bible in the sense that Islam came after the time of Jesus (yes I know about Ishmael, but I mean "modern" Islam). (Hopefully I remember this right because I'm too lazy to look it up) Muhammed was a heretical Christian sometime around the 6th century AD when he started what is today known as Islam. Of course the similarity between Judaism and Christianity is obvious, up until the time of Jesus where the paths diverge.

Islam, Christianity and Judaism all are Abrahamic religions meaning they all began in the same place, most of the have a first half which is very similar to eachothers and then they have a second half which is not the same as the others, for Christianity this is the Old Testament and the New Testament

Muslims don’t believe that Islam started from the 7th century, we believe that Islam was the first religion, starting from Adam (Peace be Upon Him) to Muhammad (Peace and Blessings upon Him). That is because the most fundamental and important part of Islam is monotheism, and all the Prophets and Massagers came to send the message of monotheism.

Islam was born in 7th century-fact No such a term has ever been mentioned before 7th century... Problem is once agian how do you prove that it's only real monotheistic religion. Only logical explanation would be that "original Islam" was edited or recorrected and that's how Christianity was born... But once again there is no any proof surrounding it

Reason many religions have much of the same stuff is because all religion is man made. once you accept that part. that religion in its basic have nothing to do with anything devine or godly. Its made by men to govern men. And to prosper and thus gain more power they use stories and former religions so people who knows those religions and stories can see them self in the new religion.. Many things in religion stories have a natural start and like all major impact thing, that turns into folk lore. and that inturn is then used to write stories for religion to steer people into that religion. Again a point to why the same stories goes again.. Noahs ark and the simular stories in other religions is based on a known flooding of the black sead after the ice wall at the end of the last ice age broke in canada releasing a lot of water, forming the canadian lakes, rushing the ocean filling in through the strait of gibralter breaking the land near now Istanbul filling up what was just a lake at the time. that place was a place where people settled, it was their entire known world getting flooded. that story is then passed on, untill religion then used them and twist them into what they want to tell. All religion is written by man, to get other men to follow it to gain power over them. we know a lot about who wrote them, why and where and how it was all decided. Also why its fun people actually think religion and faith have anything to do with each other. but that is a different story. However that is why many religions have the same people and stories, because those stories come from peoples past, so it makes sense to use them to get people to follow your religion, and also if you can use parts from other already known religions it becomes easier for "new" people to accept it.

Great read That makes a lot of sense. Noah's ark is great example. Religion learns us that was god's punishment and warning for people but it reality it was just tsunami or whatever. It makes a lot of sense as to why people back than thought that tsunami was "supernatural" and "god's making", it's because people didn't know any logical explanation to it, same goes for earthquakes and volcanos. Since there is no explanation for them "on the surface", people thought it was supernatural. Which resulted in believing of God-"the one who is able to do anything"..

Well if they associate partners with God, they can’t be monotheistic. If they call onto a shrine or a grave seeking for help from a dead person or something else, that is paganism or polytheistic.

We believe that all the Prophets and Messengers have been sent from God. Each and every nation has been sent a Prophet. We believe Jesus and Moses are a prophet. There are way more than 25 prophets. I believe there was hadith that said 300,000 prophets, but I might be wrong. The Bible accuses the prophets of major sins, such as idol worshipping or even adultery. The Quran has a more befitting view of the Prophets. Have you considered they are the similar because they came from the same source(God)? Jesus indeed was a Muslim. Muslim means to submit yourself to God, isn’t that was Jesus did? We also believe that he came and told his people of Islamic monotheism.

Found out there is no exact number of Prophets, as the hadiths were graded weak according to scholars so ignore the 300,000. However, I hope this Quran verse helps: “And there never was a nation but a warner had passed among them” [Faatir 35:24]

this is whats missing. yes there are 30 prophet well-known but it actually more than that, it just that 30 is written in Quran. and prophet Isa (or jesus for you) is not Islam but he is muslim meaning he is Allah's servant, and every prophet has a task to fix a civilization or era and prophet Muhammad is the last prophet from Allah and leave Quran for guidance because there would be no prophet send to the world. and when you see stories in Bible and Quran is actually same because its sent from the same source which is Allah the almighty god. and to choose which is good it has to be Quran since it the latest holy book from the latest prophet (so many argument in here but im gonna point this one out)

Jews, Christians and Muslims all believe in same God. Jews believe the Messiah hasn't arrived, Christians think Jesus is the Messiah and idk if Muslims think it's Mohammed or they just view him as the most important prophet. They also have some differences in their beliefs, but you can see differences between different types of Christians too for example. Also Judaism tradition (which influences Christianism and Islam) is influenced by other religions and beliefs that were around during the creation of Judaism
