  1. Im curious, what is that black square object they wear on their heads? and why do why wrap a cord of leather on their hands when they perform the prayers?

  2. Why are muslims and jews small (men) – I have date a jew and he was 1.78 hรฌgh and I'm 1.67 with high heel I was higher tha he is๐Ÿ˜‚ – his opponion on religion is (he is from Israel) ——> all the religion shut be forbidden because that only cause wars, he and his familiy lives in a kibbutz, it was boring and he feel that he never grow (personally not his high ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜) so he move to Denmark ๐Ÿ‘

  3. Wait can someone explain what's the difference between Judaism and Christianity, or rather why there's a difference?

  4. And there lies the difference between Judaism and Islam. Debate and progress is encouraged in the Jewish religion where as Islam insists on living in the 14th century thus making it incompatible with modern times.

  5. Not the same god Muslims worship but the same Abraham recognized by all three cultures to be the same God it would be the God of the The Torah correct me if I am wrong

  6. This fellow left out the most important branch of Judaism, Messianic Judaism. More and more of us Jews are coming from all strands of Judaism, economic backgrounds, and other backgrounds are coming to know our Messiah!

  7. 3,000 yrs old he said….Sumerian civilization is 6,000 yrs old….u wanna rewind and push the origin another 3,000 yrs? Bosnian pyramid is estimated to be 25,000 yrs old….push back origin again?….what next should be discover another archaelogical site that dates back 450,000 yrs old….more pushing back????

  8. Mysterious God is everywhere – it is illogical to say God would tell people to face kaba to be in touch with Her / Him. One can pray to Bhagavan, God, Allah, Jehovah in a church or a synagogue or a mosque or in the cafe when sipping coffee or anywhere else in the world and God will listen for She / He is merciful, Caring and kind.
    The Kingdom of Heaven we talk about is the Country on Earth in which all people can live in harmony and ancient religions do not come into this as ancient books are outdated for our modern times. The ancient books were written for times past and not for our times of today with mixed cultures. The Kingdom of Heaven is likely to be the UK for here no religion is given prominence but its citizens are. Believing a Kingdom of Heaven exists somewhere else is a misconception which does not undersatnd the Harmony of Nations.
    Mohammed was a social reformer and an intelligent person. He by himself with his cabinet were quite capable of drafting the text of the Quran. He used the ideas coming from the Sumeria to Greeks to Buddha to Moses and Jesus. This is very common in human societies even at the times of the learned Greeks and Romans who lived many years before Mohammed.
    In like manner there is evidence to show that Jesus borrowed his ideas from Buddha on peace and tolerance.
    And there is evidence based on his upbringing as a prince in Egypt that Moses with his cabinet was more than capable of writing the Torah by himself.
    Buddha who wrote sensible laws as good as the laws in the Torah, Bible and the Quran never said god gave him the message – reflections on life did.
    In the modern world we need to modernise all ancient texts including the three stated above.
    Sunyat Iqbal, UK

  9. I feel like religion should be dynamic and change with time. You should have the freedom to interpret or even question religious texts. So much these days seems so black or white, it leaves zero room for debate
