A Bible vs. Qur'an compare and contrast article is better moved under a similar title as I have just linked here. For consistency, this page would be better formatted like the Bible page, with a simple description like you have at the top, and links to an online text provided.
It is important the any such compare and contrast article remain objective. State the similaries and differences without favoring one side or the other in excess. Total objectivity may not be possible for anyone who holds to the Bible or the Qur'an as the one and only Word of God, so just do your best. It is important not to place anything in the article that is there just to be critical. Some of the quotes in "Interesting Quotes In the Qur'an" seem there for this reason alone.
It is totally acceptable for external links to be placed at the footer to articles which are "Pro Bible" or "Pro Qur'an" comparisons.
The article islamic creationism should be left as a stand-alone article, but some of the information may be redundantly placed in both articles, and it should be appropriately linked within this document. --Chris Ashcraft 19:53, 22 December 2005 (GMT)

BBrett - This original article has been moved to Bible vs. Qur'an and revised. Please analyze the future home of this article and make all further modifications or additions at Bible vs. Qur'an. We will want to keep your introductory paragraph regarding the Qur'an here, and the links that remain on this page also. The rest can be deleted after you have a chance to look it over.--Chris Ashcraft 22:06, 22 December 2005 (GMT)
- Hey BBrett -- I read your contributions to this article -- very valuable! I have one question tho: the section you added on "Differences" quotes the Quran as calling Muslims to search the other scriptures so as to find confirmation of the Quran, but it does not say that those other scriptures are not incomplete or even corrupt in some details. In the same way, we Christians look to the Old Testament as incomplete without the completion of the New Testament, they look at the Quran as the completion of the Old and New testaments. But how can we draw from this that they think the bible "cannot be corrupted?" Ungtss 18:28, 22 December 2005 (GMT)
- Hey Ungtss -- I see your point. Although, this is clearly covered under the section "The Bible cannot be corrupt". Another problem is that the Koran thouroghly contradicts the Gospel to the utmost degree!!! There is no confirmation of the Qur'an found anywhere in the New Testament. Even though the Old Testament is incomplete it does not in any way contradict the New Testament but it fulfills it!!! The Qur'an does not fulfill the Old and New testament but instead contradicts them on several major points! BBrett
- Good point, good point: I just added the Islamic interpretation of those verses at the end -- keep up the good work:). Ungtss 19:10, 22 December 2005 (GMT)
Cool! Looks good thanks for the help! BBrett
