Article: A Simple Reason Why the Qur'an Cannot Be the Word of God by Jonathan McLatchie

In this featured article Jonathan McLatchie of the CrossExamined.org blog argues as follows:

1. Either the Bible is the Word of God or it is not.

2. If the Bible is the Word of God, the Qur’an is not.

3. If the Bible is not the Word of God, the Qur’an is not.

4. Therefore, the Qur’an is not the Word of God.

For those wanting to know what makes a good argument, go here.

McLatchie goes on to thoroughly defend the argument and writes:

"...the argument developed above represents a formidable challenge to the Islamic religion, and I challenge any Muslim to show me where I have erred. In order to maintain his Islamic faith, a Muslim must reject one or more of the Premises of the syllogism given at the start of this article. If he cannot do so, the conclusion follows necessarily and inescapably."

Courage and Godspeed,
Chad
