1 Cary W = "This documentary is very well done and informative of both the history and growth of the Muslim religion."
2 Cary W = "Christians hold that Jesus was both man and God, saying if you have seen Me, you have seen the Father.  Muslim's deny that Jesus is God's son and do not believe he was divine, just a prophet.  Yet if they were to understand Jesus life and message, they would know that He came to give us all the same inheritance He received from the Father, namely sonship!"
3 Sahil Badruddin = "Carl, I would disagree to your point. It is true that Muslims do not hold the Prophet Jesus as God or the literal Son of God; however, they do adhere to him as a Prophet. In fact, I would argue that the Prophet Muhammad saw Jesus as the greatest Prophet. You are basing you claim based largely on the Gospel of John which was written somewhere between 100-120 CE so about 70-90 years after the death of Jesus.You have to understand the type of Christians that Muhammad was exposed to, at least historically, in Pre-Islamic Arabia. These were Christians who did not believe in Jesus as the God and only as a man; thus, it makes sense that the Prophet was influenced by these Christians. "
4 Cary W = "Muslim faith is quite unique in that there are no clergy or overseers of the church, leaving everyone to interpret the scriptures on their own.  You could get 10 Muslims in a room and find 10 different interpretations for every verse scribed by Mohammad."
5 Sahil Badruddin = "Islam does not have a general overall authority. Thus, any interpretation becomes a valid interpretation from a scholarly perspective. However, it does not mean every perspective is theological equivalent. Some perspectives are more historical, rational, reasonable, and scientific than other interpretations. Thus, if we use history and science as a basis to establish general elements of Truth that can be empirical verified, then some interpretations will be more reasonable for a rational person to follow than other interpretations. "
