Mark 14:35-36 And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him. And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt. Jesus prostrated on the ground (likely in the same manner as Muslims) to pray to God to save him from the up coming ordeal, God willing (as a Muslim would say).
I have studied the history of the text of the Bible. Jesus spoke Aramaic. Hebrew was a dead language by his time. He did not know Ancient Greed or Latin. Do you know what the word for "God" is in Aramaic? It is "Allaha". That is the name of God which Jesus used when he was on the cross and called out to God to save him. Remind you of anything? Not to mention that it seems more than a little odd that if Jesus was God that he would beg to be saved when the plan to have himself killed on the cross was his in the first place. Look it up. http://www.learnassyrian.com/aramaic/church/church.html
And leave you in the dark?
The KJV includes several passages that most scholars believe were not in the original text. Creative editing has been a problem since the earliest days of Christianity when different groups changed the message of Jesus to suit their own needs. St. Paul being the greatest culprit of all.
Because there is enough of you right-wing fanatics already doing the job.
God initiated the Big Bang. "Let there be light." The laws of the universe and all that has resulted from those laws are the work of God. Evolution ought to be embraced by believers as yet one more sign of the awesome power of God.

As far as eternal punishment, I don't think that anyone should believe in or worship a God that would create man and then punish him indefinitely for a life of wrong doing or arrogance. That would go against the dictates of justice. By the way I am a Muslim. :)
That is completely false. You have no clue what you are talking about. Muslims, of all times and places, believe in the God of Abraham, Moses and Jesus.
Just because someone excels in one facet of life does not make them an authority in another. Dawkins is an incoherent fool when he chooses to step out of his field of study and speak about religion.
It's true, the Muslims who were once the most educated and scientifically advanced people on the planet, have sunk far. It is a period like the dark ages were for the Europeans.
