I don't know why nature is not a God, there is much more evidence that we came from it than a divine being
There are no 25 prophets. There are 30 prophets.
Muhammad = 30th
Islam/Christianity/Judaism are variations of the same root religion
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
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 bible is just a book of stories told by random people nobody should take it serioulsy lol
especially not 2000 years later
religions are dumb believe in yourself and don't wait for things to happen magically just cos u pray long hours lmao
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.
yes. some ancient civilizations exchange information constantly. most of the histories we're symbolic explanations of the reality, but idolatry blinded people.
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
"Islam was born in 7th century" why would you believe a rip-off then wtf
Muslims respect prophet Issa (Jesus) the most because he plays counter strike
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.
Religion is for people who want simple solution for complex problems
Three of them are product of Middle East religion tradition. Just three brunches of one Abrahamic religion.
You know that there is a reason why all three are called Abrahamic religions right?
God bless you all, Good night.
That's because Christianity and Islamic are both Abrahamic religions.
Most pointless thread on HLTV ever, idk if I got baited.
Too much text for my small head sry
isn't shinto technically monotheistic, or are spirits not technically viewed as gods?
some things really does not make sense in religions so i dont believe them at all
i think god does not exist or he/she exists but does not care about humanity
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.
Who cars men life should be free, i registered as a catholic but never goes to sunday prayer ever since i live separatedly from my parents. My life has been more fun and free since i dont need to sing nonsense every week and pay damn bishops my hard earned money
P.s im not atheist, i believe heartfully in money i guess you could call me moneytheist
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)
all religion is good
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
I bible isn't 100% original, so yea, you're right. That's not even a hot take, just facts
the bible by now is probably rewritten 500000 times.
That's not really ur theory... that's actually how it is :D
no shit lmao
i remember there were some soviet books that showed how monotheistic religions basically stole stories and symbolism from the pagan ones
at the end of the day it's a product of culture
Religion is the dumbest thing ever
