A Muslim asks: Did Jesus really die on the cross?

Wednesday, April 18th, 2007

The Qur’an says ‘No, it was an impostor’ (paraphrase), but even secular historians at the time record it, and the authorities would have recaptured Him if they thought he had gotten out of the crucifixion, unless they were afraid.

Peace be upon you, brother.
Yes, Jesus was actually crucified, as you will find by researching secular authors of the time who recorded it for history. I have been studying Islamic apologist sites and have found that they cry out loudly against the ‘New Testament’, and declare many falsehoods about it to be true. I have heard the same from those of Islam – that the Christians spout lies about Mohammad and the Qur’an. I would suggest that your answer is to be found through intense study and prayer, and not through radical speech from either side.
I have done and am continuing to do research for my own quest, and have firmly come to believe that Jesu is indeed the Messiah for you and me. Do not misunderstand, THERE IS ONE GOD! But God is more complicated that we give Him credit for being. Jesus is God in that He is the expression of the active creator PART of God. The ‘Holy Spirit’ is simply the ‘heart’ of God. But THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD. Our scriptures tell us there are seven spirits of God – this is something I don’t understand, but accept, as HIS WAYS ARE HIGHER THAN OUR WAYS.

Can someone here tell me how the Second Law of Thermodynamics disproves Evolution?

This is from my answer to this question on Yahoo Answers after seeing a lot of nonsense posted:

IT SEEMS THAT there is a bit of a misunderstanding on the full implications of the 2nd Law: It is not just about heat flow, but also about complexity. Things in this particular universe do not tend to move toward increasing complexity, but instead tend to go the other way (entropy). It has been shown that our DNA, due to the cosmic rays of the sun and other problems, is losing alleles (parts), causing more health problems and defects. Please don’t confuse micro-evolution (which absolutely occurs) with MACRO-evolution, which has never been seen/proven/evidenced. This is why we do not have millions of transitional fossils that would confirm macro-evolution. Many adaptations (like better oxygen usage) are simply embedded in the DNA and are not used until needed.
The problem has always been (more…)
