    First of all Asrar was just being silly offering poison or what looks like poison like the olden days bogus, childish arguments. Then to drink it knowing that it is harmful or not harmful is even more silly because this is a debate and should be done academically. This is just like a Christian claiming "I speak to the Holy Spirit" and that's an argument.

    Its silly to quote a verse that one doesn't believe to be valid text and ask them to drink poison to prove a verse they dont believe in. The standard of this debate overall is very sophomore, especially with that lady what's her name, zaithoon or something? She is no scholar? She is just a loud talking evangelist who has no education on theology whatsoever. She is a disciple of Jay Smith and all they do is repeat the same lie again and again to turn naive Christians towards them.

    You call this a victory? Mate. Be much more sophisticated than this.

    Thank you for your reply.
    Indeed interesting. Mark 16 is quite different from Mathew 28, thought it tells about the same event.
    But that is to be expected. Some people are more sensitive than others. So, they see other things.
    And God reveals different things to different people...even at the same time.

    I can understand that the Church decided to cut out the parts that make the Bible seemingly inconsistent
    But I rather have all the puzzle pieces and interpret it myself.

    Did it ever occur to you that modern rat poison is not harmful to anything but rats and mice? This is because modern law has rendered all poisons that are harmful to humans, and which used to be used for rat poison, such as thallium sulphate, arsenic and strychnine, illegal?

    Moreover, it's also the dosage which counts for a lot. I suspect that the dosage of this dissolved rat poison was fairly low, as constrasted with the solidified rat poison that rats and mice eat in the quantities that they need to eat it, in order to die. One dose of modern poison does not even kill rats or mice. They have to eat it over a period of time.

    I wouldn't bet that these muslims could drink any of the aforementioned poisons in lethal dosage and survive! So I conclude a fake miracle.

    It doesn't kill people unless you take a whole lot of it. My old United Pentecostal sect was a cousin church to the snake handler churches in Virginia and the states with lots of mountains, mo8untain churches. I think Alabama is the main state that has those churches.

    They pick up snakes get bitten drink poisen etc...……...….it's crazy, they risk their life but picking up snakes doesn't men death neither does drinking poisen.

    Watch the rest :)
    I peeked at it. It doesn't deny my original statement, that Muhammad was poisoned by one of the Jewish women that survived the battle.
