Mohammed a fraud? Who would’ve guessed!

The ‘Birmingham Koran’ fragment that could shake Islam after carbon-dating suggests it is OLDER than the Prophet Muhammad

It is believed that the Birmingham Koran was produced between 568AD and 645AD, while the dates usually given for Muhammad are between 570AD and 632AD.

Historian Tom Holland, told the Times: ‘It destabilises, to put it mildly, the idea that we can know anything with certainty about how the Koran emerged – and that in turn has implications for the history of Muhammad and the Companions.’

Keith Small, from the University of Oxford’s Bodleian Library, added: ‘This gives more ground to what have been peripheral views of the Koran’s genesis, like that Muhammad and his early followers used a text that was already in existence and shaped it to fit their own political and theological agenda, rather than Muhammad receiving a revelation from heaven.

    Good research line to investigate. But so what? Even if the earlier Koran was proven true, and that Mohammad was a plagiarist, all the powers-that-be would do would be to ignore the findings, or shoot the investigators. And the Western academic/media/government establishment would just ignore the findings, to kowtow to the Muslim establishment. Nothing would change.

    • Why would anyone “freely” believe Islam, in its entirety, as a belief system?

      Quite frankly, Islam is preposterous.

      A seventh century warlord, womanizing, murdering thug, child pedophile is revered by Muslims as the perfect human.

      All Muslims are supposed to strive to be like Mohammad.

      Something is wrong here.

      • It is ridiculous.

        HART is jewish and an astrophysicist, historian.

        Just see whom he placed on First Place.

    • Exactly. In today’s atmosphere, facts are no longer respected, only terror.

    Carbon dating is haram.

      • Tom Forsythe

        That’s a completely different sort of dating.

    Since when have facts mattered to choppers?

    • Delvol

      They never do when it comes to the narrative.

  • Ron MacDonald

    So Mohamed was both a plagiarist and pedophile.

    • He was certainly a plagiarist, no matter how old this finding is. Him or whoever put together the Koran – it is a very low-quality copy and paste job.

        Have u read Quran?

        • Yes. And I have read the Jewish and Christian Bibles.

      People have been saying that for years. The only truth that Mohammed ever spoke is when he first met the “angel” in the cave. He called it a demon out to tempt him and then years later he went back and pledge himself to the thing in the cave.

      All u people’s life revolve around Islam and Muhammad ( PBUH ) . Do u know about Christianity n Jesus ?
      Ever read Bible ?

  • I like the line in the article that says: “Muhammad, a deeply spiritual and religious man” – according to this, being a sex fiend, a highway robber and looter, and a mass murderer is “deeply spiritual and religious”? And it goes on: he “was meditating in a cave” – surely, they mean masturbating in a cave – what would such a depraved man know of meditation! And then they claim: “he was visited by the angel Jibreel who ordered him to recite” – would an angel approach such a demonic creature?

    These nutbags claim Islam is transcendent of time. It existed before the world and will continue after it.

  • tom_billesley

    A conundrum easily solved by admitting that Mohammed is a fictional character.

    • Gary

      Muslims use the quran to prove he was a prophet , so it must be true because the quran is from allah.

  • Gary

    NASA now claims that they found a quran on the moon right by an exposed step to a mosque.
    It’s true, just ask Imam Obama.

    So in addition to being a pirate, a pig, a crossdresser, a pedophile, and a general all around scumbag, Mohammed was also a plagiarist.

  • Kausar

    Doesnt 570 to 632 , lie in the bracket of 568 to 645, so how can u say its fraud ?

    Atleast do some maths.
