I know that it sucks a little bit more than any of the other major religions out there. Every religion has extremists but the muslim extremists are the worst. They get butthurt over every single fuckin thing you can imagine. "OMG someone drew my prophet Mooohamid, lemee get all ass hurt over this! arararrghghghghghgHG!!!!!!!!L"

the koran can be seen as the continuation of the story that was started in the old testament it is based around 5 pillars but i know one of them is muslims must believe in god and believe that muhamad is his profit most muslims are supposed to give about 2% of their income to charity and there is a split in the religion caused by a dispute between who became the first leader of the religion

Prince, for what purpose did you post? You didn't say anything useful, and I believe that some people care. The person who began the thread certainly does.
I'm afraid I know absolutely nothing about the Islam, but I'd love to learn more about it. Religions interest me greatly.

Because every time I post something in connection with Islam, I find that I am ignored and wasting my time. The majority of TS members are interested mostly in Christianity and atheism.
Anyways, if you want to read good Islamic introductory materials here you go:

Why are some Muslims so quick to resort to violence or murder when their feelings are hurt. Muhammad was a pedophile. He married a 9 year old girl. Just accept the fact.

Nearly all extremists/radicalists are losers in life, especially athletically or economically, one way or another. They cannot enjoy their lives and they want to act on behalf of God.

This topic is extremely complex the fact some people are that quick to jump in and blame all muslims for doing's of one is just wrong, i am not muslim however i have many muslim friend's and have learnt a lot about there religion, and learnt to respect it there was a time i use to blame them for everything too because of osama binladen etc, but yes, that's not fair.
Islam is honestly the most hated religion out there yet it's one of the biggest, muslims are generally split into two groups shia and sunni, shia are generally more of these extremenists which btw there are very few of, just because 1 man kills 100 people and blames it on his religion doesn't make it true.
I have a muslim friend who is quite wealthy every single day he prays 5 time's, donates a large majority of his money to the poor i.e. today he gave a homeless man 100 pounds and a large evian bottle of water and a small bag of fruit he repeats this process every day.
after i read stories about islam it intruiged me it is one of the most complicated religioins in a way so much background to it many beautiful stories and 80% of it is from the bible and torah but the diference is the Qu'ran has never been edited every single one out there has the same information unlike the bible.
if you want to learn about islam i suggest you youtube "Dr bilal philipps" a great islamic scholar who's very informative.

If you are interested to read the Qur'an, I recommend (esp as a Catholic) you read Surah 19 (Chapter of Virgin Mary). Visit: www.quran.com and select Surah/Chapter 19) Maryam.

Urgh. I honestly do not know where you learned or heard that the Qur'an has scientific flaws. The Qur'an is universally acclaimed to be in complete harmony with reality and Modern Science. Have you heard of the saying, "Do not believe everything you hear? Do your own investigation."
Muslims believe that the Qur'an is the literal word of God as revealed to the prophet Muhammad through the Archangel Gabriel. Many Muslims believe that the Qur'an contains scientific information that would only be discovered by the world in modern times, centuries after their revelation, proving its divine origin. These are claimed to include scientific information pertaining to creation, astronomy, biology, and human reproduction.Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scienti...n_sacred_texts
One such claim is based on an interpretation of the passage in the Qur'an which states: "Have not those who disbelieve known that the heavens and the earth were of one piece, then We parted them and we made every living thing of water? Will they not then believe?"[Quran 21:30] Muslims claim that the first part of the verse is referring to the Big Bang and the second part of the verse refers to the fact that all living things are made of water since and water being a necessary component for life. Muslims also believe that the Qur'an also refers to the protective properties of the atmosphere when it says, “We made the sky a preserved and protected roof yet still they turn away from Our Signs.”[Quran 21:32] In addition to this, Muslims believe the Qur'an mentions the rotation and orbit of the Sun and the Moon when it states, "It is He who created the night and the day, and the sun, and the moon; each of them swim along in its rounded course."[Quran 21:33]
Muslims have cited the following Qur'anic verse as miraculous, "After that (Allah) spread the Earth out (dahaha: from the verb 'daha')" [Quran 79:30]. This verse has been interpreted by many Muslims as foreshadowing the concept that the figure of the Earth has an ellipsoid shape. Kamel Ben Salem's explanation for this is that "the ancient exegetes had earlier explained the Arabic verb (dahaha) by (has flattened it)" but that "the origin of this verb is found in the word (Ud-hiya)," which means "egg of ostrich," thus "the Earth would look like an ostrich’s egg." Rashad Khalifa alternatively translated the verse as: "he made the earth egg-shaped."

Also check out the cool almost 3-hour documentary by Harun Yahya on the scientific miracles in the Qur'an. In respective order from part 1 to part 4:
Many of these scientific miracles (that is, scientific facts and phenomena mentioned in the Qur'an before its discovery or settlement by modern science) convinced people all around the world that the Qur'an is the Word of God.
