Michael you didn't answer any of my questions. You simply made a claim that one of the holy books which has supernatural claims (Koran) made less prophesies than another holy book that makes supernatural claims (bible). I asked no such question. The Koran is utterly loaded with prophesies...so unless you simply haven't read the Koran or know next to nothing about it...you've just made that up. A basic elementary google search reveals the wikipedia page on it, and endless websites connecting prophesies in the Koran with a methodology and examples of future events fulfilling them. Nice try but you are wrong.
Let's return to the questions I asked because if we would take your claim seriously (that the prophesies of the Bible coming true give evidence that the holy text of the bible is a trusted source) I need more information on how to assess such prophecies in all holy books:
1. if someone used the Koran in their own subjective way to predict the existence of things which came true...would you consider that evidence of ye existence of Allah?
2. If a man made countless predictions using a holy book and only a handful came true...would you consider his predictions as actual predictions or the statistical likelihood that when enough predictions are made...a few are bound to come true?
3. would just a couple predictions based on the text of the Baghavad Gita...coming true would be enough to consider the Koran as evidence of the existence of Allah?
4. What about the prophesies in the Bible that didn't come true? Should we ignore those?
5. What other predictions have you made based on the bible?
6. What percentage of these predictions should come true?
7. What kind of methodology should we use to study and label text as prophecies and what methodology should we use to link those predictions with later events?
8. Being completely honest...what were all the predictions you have made and which have come true and which have not. Be very specific and be completely honest.
Try to answer at least a few of these in a clear manner addressing the question and not an irrelevant side matter.
And again you've not answered his questions.
"It was an accurate prediction of the succession of world Empires even beyond our history."
LOL, it just gets deeper and deeper. :)
In a prior post you said...
There aren't too many prophecies in the Koran.
Yet here you say...
The Koran is loaded with prophecies.
Hi Michael, could we get a working definition for your God so that we know what we are debating? I find that many Christians have different ideas about this. For some God is a Spirit as in John 4:24, for others he is a personal God as in “I am not religious but…” while others have some sort of vague deist concept of a god that does not become involved with the affairs of humans.
