Dutch Pranksters tell People Bible verses are from Qur’an & Hilarity Ensues

RT | (Video report) |

“Dutch pranksters have conducted an experiment aimed at testing public prejudice towards Islam. They took to the streets and read extracts from a book which they claimed was the Koran. Then came the big reveal. What people had originally believed were extracts from the Koran were actually being read from the Bible.”

  1. Ridiculous. If they had been told the verses were from the Old Testament, they probably would have had a similar reaction of revulsion, only it would have been more readily accompanied with dismissiveness. Why? Because Christianity has a New Testament and has gone through a reformation.

    after viewing, YouTube will autoload vids of ppl who have replicated this experiment in the USA, and the reactions are priceless.

    • Let them replicate the experiment in a Muslim community and let’s see some more pricelessness.

      • It wouldn’t work, Trip. Muslims mostly accept the Bible, and there isn’t really anything in it that would scandalize them.

        • What is the response to the claim that the New Testament has “reformed” the Old Testament , whereas that hasn’t happened in Islam ?

        • It isn’t relevant to a historical examination of these issues, it is just a kind of ahistorical theology.

          The Qur’an isn’t from the time of the Hebrew Bible, but post-dates the NT; it represents itself as a restatement of all previous scripture.

        • How about the suggestion that David (whom they regard as a prophet) committed serious sins, such as murder?

        • The New Testament didn’t reform the Old Testament. The people who canonized the NT weren’t Hebrews reforming the Torah. Jesus’s message wasn’t about reform. It was more akin to a new covenant with God before the Apocalypse. Jesus was an “end times” prophet–besides, you know, being all those other things people claim he was/is. The reformation of Christianity didn’t officially start until 1200 years after the canonization of the NT and the OT–900 years post-Muhammad.
