I have come to realize that dating is a process that occupies a great deal of your emotions and tempts you physically so fast that you don't realize what hit you.The process spins out of control and becomes very hard to control.The physical part is as simple as holding hands and evolves into hugging, kissing and other forms of sexual relations.What's the bid deal with a little kiss or hand holding?This makes the newly-discovered pages possibly the oldest copy of the Quran in existence.The Prophet Muhammad, who is recognized as the founder of the Islamic faith, was said to have received the revelations that eventually came to form the Quran. The dating of the Birmingham Quran has led some historians to believe that it could even pre-date the Prophet.An ancient copy of the Islamic holy book the Quran was discovered by researchers from the University of Birmingham.Historians now believe that the early manuscript, written between 568 and 645 AD, could pre-date the lifetime of the Prophet Muhammad.
Some pretty credible people are using some pretty dramatic language about this turn of events. Keith Small noted that though the parchment, not the ink was tested, he “believes that the dates are probably right and may raise broad questions about the origins of Islam,” adding: This gives more ground to what have been peripheral views of the Koran’s genesis, like that Mohammed and his early followers used a text that was already in existence and shaped it to fit their own political and theological agenda, rather than Mohammed receiving a revelation from heaven.Qur’an that may be the world’s oldest made a splash in July, when carbon dating at the University of Oxford placed it at about 1,370 years old — the era of Muhammad.The “Birmingham Qur’an,” named after the English university where it resides, was heralded as proof that modern texts have remained true to Muhammad’s original words. That’s not only very, very old, it’s quite possibly If the dating is correct, the “Birmingham Koran” was produced between AD568 and AD645, while the dates usually given for Muhammad are AD570 to AD632…Two fragments from the Quran, discovered last month and considered the earliest written evidence of Islam’s holy book, have now been suggested to pre-date the birth of the prophet Muhammad, the founder of the religion.What the tests revealed initially, was that the parchment originated around 1,370 years ago.it could date back to Mohammed’s childhood, or possibly even before his birth. Trouble with a capital “T.” That rhymes with “P” and that stands for, um, pissed Muslims.
