For anyone who is actually interested in this sort of thing... heres some food for thought....
Islam is not considered a new religion by Muslims. They actually believe they are following the original path of the prophet Abraham. This is due to the previous religions (Christaianity and Judaism) being corrupted by man to suit his own political and socio economical reasons.
Muslims believe and respect all the prophets from Adam through to Jeseus (the big difference being that they dont believe in the crucifixion or the 'Son of God' trinity business. They believe Jesus was just a prophet like any other but that he was not crucified but rather taken up to heaven by God and is still alive waiting to return to battle the anti christ.
It is interesting to note that the Bible was actually written some 200 years after the passing of Christ. Would that explain certain discrepancies in it for it is logical to assume that the actual word of God would not have any discrepancy? Would it explain the different number of versions of the Bible.. each is supposed to be the word of God!!?
The Prophet Muhammed pbuh is buried in medina, the grave is in the mosque there... the one with the green dome some may have seen on TV. Riding a horse to heaven or turing water into wine, or parting the red sea... just miracles and signs of the power of God manifest if you believe in such things.
One last point... a lot of prophets were considered to be false by the religions they came to supercede... why? that should be obvious....
