This clip is from an "Intelligence Squared" debate on the life of Muhammad. Brother Douglas Murray is giving his talk.
Take a look at this passage from the holey Quran. Since Allah does not exist, Muhamamd by default has to be credited with authoring the contents of the Quran.
Qur'an (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"
Here's the conclusion any sensible person will arrive at. If you are religious, you will conclude that Muhammad was the prophet of Satan masquerading as a prophet of God. If you are an atheist like me, you will conclude that Muhammad was an evil opportunistic man who had no qualms about hurting others and couldnt care less about what legacy he left behind after he was dead and gone.
He will never rest in peace after all this bloodshed that he has caused by writing a book called Quran.
I'm an ex-muslim atheist, but I can respect people like Buddha and Jesus. Muhammad? Too violent and materialistic for my sensibilities.
Muhammad needs to earn respect, just like everyone else need to. You cant simply write a book of fairytales and yell out that it was sent down from the sky by God and demand respect, admiration and obedience from people. That;s just not on. And yet, that;s exactly what Muhammad did. He said in the hadith and I quote: "None of you will have faith till he loves me more than his father, his children and all mankind" Anas, book of Sahih Bukhari.
