This is sort of a contingent question for this List, since you could
look it up for yourself if you really wanted to know.


Sura 14:48
"The day will come when this earth will be substituted with a new
earth, and also the heavens, and everyone will be brought before GOD,
the One, the Supreme."

So you believe that the Qur'an is the literal word of God? What I was hoping is that you would say Muhammed was deluded or lying, so that the Qur'an is at best an impressive piece of literature with some interesting moral teachings: i.e., what atheists say about the Bible.
