  1. Please how much will it cost to clear 2009 Toyota Corolla ( Accident car)

    1. Prophet Muhammad had s** with a six year old girl Ayesha, He ordered to kill Dogs, he wrote about killing or doing war with non believers of Allah etc and you are calling such person peaceful, WOW, great research.
      Mother Teresa uses the used syringe to treat poor ill people & many died because of AIDS, food poisoning, blood infection & other Deadly disease, food & Shelter were very unhygienic, Toilets were worst in that, she used to convert poors to Chirstanity & for this missionary she was praised that’s it, there were a secret string operation were it’s revealed if you researched properly you have got it..
      Mahatma Gandhi wasn’t peaceful at all, he was hinduphobhic, he was supporting Muslims but he was not supporting hindus, nathuram godse’s people were died because of Gandhi, during protest and during that protest Gandhi was sitting inside his house, it was rain outside survivors from that protest were not invited inside & were thrown out of his property and you this character in the most peaceful people in the world history??
      You should include Lord Rama, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Swami Vivekanand & Nicola Tesla..

  2. Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) id the most peaceful person in the world. He (SAW) educated the ignorant Arabs and transformed the whole country of ignorant people who buried their daughter alive, kill each other, threaten each other etc into peaceful muslims. For this our Prophet(SAW) forgave the person who tried to kill him. Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) is UNDOUBTEDLY THE MOST PEACEFUL HUMAN IN THE WORLD EVER. Therefore, he deserves to BE FIRST not third!!!!!

    1. Agreed Hundred percent…Even before Reading it,I knew it will not be the way it should be…

  3. There is no historical evidence that Jesus ever existed.

    1. There is and it is dully documented


    3. Robert there is historical evidence. And if you read the bible youll be able to understand there is evidence. Bro like he came back from the dead,people came back to life,i could say the same thing about muhammad like cmon man.

    4. EXCUSE me?! There is evidence that Jesus did exist AND THEN WHO EVEN CREATED CHRIST READ THE BIBLE DUDE

    5. Fair, but consider this. Would it be possible that the same historical landmarks, and same buildings that are described in the bible, are still there to an extent? and that there are records of his existance from thousands of years ago? Just a thought, though you do have somewhat of a point. Im just trying to be rational here. If you think he’s the son of god, go at it. Im speaking of jesus as a person. personally i am christian so that may give some bias.

  4. Mother Theresa isn’t looking so good post-mortem. Regarding Jesus- Romans kept excellent records but can’t find him. Had he existed as Christians claim he would have stood out. Single Jewish men were freaky but he just wasn’t there.

  5. Robert there is historical evidence. And if you read the bible youll be able to understand there is evidence. Bro like he came back from the dead,people came back to life,i could say the same thing about muhammad like cmon man.

  6. Actually Robert there is evidence, the problem is just that there are some things that are been linked or rather attached to the story which don’t really have clear documented religious proof.Jesus has a route even in all religions but some stories of Jesus are misconceptions,Jesus is a human like you who live on earth like other messengers of God Almighty, he conveyed God message to the world during his time before some unbelievers killed him and according to both Islam and xtian religion he will come back before the end time to finish his task.I didn’t know whenever u wanna talk about this alot will easily get frustrated and violently begin argument when u wanna talk about it.That’s exactly why almost nobody has a clear view of Jesus even the followers winch is pathetic… May God Almighty Guide us to the Light….And you know when u come across bloggers like this,they write base on what favour their thoughts,they hardly are critical thinkers before positing things.Just read and pass…
