Comment: Dear Chris, THANK GOD !!! I really appreciate your effort. If only material like this could be the basis for a study of comparative religions in Australian schools. We need to defend our Government schools and the secular settlement, which will come under pressure soon from those advocating the millet or separate court system of the Ottoman Empire. And who are we mere mortals to argue with God? By the way, I am very liberal in my views on religion, after 30 years of inner turmoil and struggle.

Comment: I feel very fortunate to have stumbled on to this work. My early education was devoid of such information on these religions. We know the dogma perhaps now perhaps we are a little better informed about it's history and development. Thank you and good luck with any future endeavours.

Comment: Hi Chris, I am a GP on the Sunshine Coast and was intrigued to read your booklet.I too am an amateur religious historian and am currently writing a book on the origins of Christianity and Islam, so am well aware of the effort you have put in. My slant is that religious thinking has caused more harm than good in our world so we should understand where it comes from, perhaps with a view to demystifying and depowering its grip on society. Would love to chat with you or anyone else interested.

Comment: Many thanks for your scholarly work. Another interesting book which sheds light on the Monotheistic debate is The Jesus Conspiracy (or The greatest story ever sold)by Acharya S

Comment: You might want to restate your comment about 'women' in that Muhammed and Islam brought about significant material benefits unheard of in the entire known world not just the Arab world.

Comment: Firstly I would ask anyone who reads this document to verify ALL the claims. From the start errors was evident. e.g. Chris says that Ur just meant city and has never been found. Ur lies 140 mile between Babylon and the Persian Gulf. There has been much scientific based archaeology that supports many Biblical/Qur'anic accounts. To say the symbol of the crescent moon came from pagan Arabs is totally wrong. A quick Google search will reveal it's Byzantium origins. This paper can only be put in to the 'Pseudo Science' category right next to a bottle of 'Snake Oil' like so many 'Pseudo Science' claims a name of a university is given in this case the University of Queensland albeit the Medical Faculty and not the History Faculty. Why did Chris write this? Some motivation only he knows.

Comment: Hi Chris, Thank you for all the effort you have put in to this. I would love to believe everything you have written and i hope your research in to these matters have been as exhaustive as can be. I read somewhere that the name Allah was actually a pagan God name from pre Islamic times and 'prophet' Mohammad only intended to 'stream line' the pagan religion. Any thoughts on this please.

Comment: Your article was very interesting. Yes, we do need more discussion on this subject, but please get your facts right. You stated that there is no historical evidence for the existence of King David and others. I beg to differ. Please check out the following site There are many other archaeological sites that will confirm the existence of King David and many other people mention in the Christian and Jewish Bibles.

Comment: I've taught biblical / classical Hebrew and 'Semitic' languages for many years and I have a few commenmts about your very good work; 'Ur' p.1 means more 'administrative district' rather than city though the distinction is quite blurred. The Q(Quelle) hypotheseis is now largely discredited. The quote "... shall rule over you." p.39 is a mistranslation, mashal-bor is a sexual metaphor lit. ... be big in your (fem) openness. Common error based on translators' embarrassment. Well done!
