Michael Patton, author of Now That I’m a Christian: What It Means to Follow Jesus, writes:
“The believer in the Islamic faith has to trust in a private encounter Muhammad had, and this encounter is unable to be tested historically. [ the link is to a post at a Muslim site, but the statement is Michael Patton’s – see full article below.]
We have no way to truly investigate the claims of Joseph Smith (and when we do, they are found wanting). [Joseph Smith, founder of the Mormon religion]
Buddhism and Hinduism are not historic faiths, meaning they don’t have central claims of events in time and space which believers are called upon to investigate. You either adopt their philosophy or you don’t. There is no objective way to test them.
Run through every religion that you know of and you will find this to be the case: Either it does not give historic details to the central event, the event does not carry any worldview-changing significance, or there are no historic events which form the foundation of the faith.”

Adbul Hakim Murad, Paul Williams and other Muslims make a very unintelligent claim here. Islam denies real history, as it denies the crucifixion and death of Jesus Al Masih. Pray for God to open the hearts of Muslims to the truth of the history of the crucifixion of Jesus Al Masih).
