Die breite Masse eines Volkes ... einer großen Lüge leichter zum Opfer fällt als einer kleinen.
-- Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, I.x
  The broad mass of a people ... will more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a small one.

Scrutinizing Rumors And Exposing Hoaxes

Falsely Claimed Conversions:

True conversions

Other Muslim claims:

It is so much easier to make an unsubstantiated claim than to disprove it. (And there exist an enormous number of baseless rumors in the secular and religious realm.) It is obviously vital that we build our faith on the solid ground of truth. I would be most grateful for anybody who can provide further information on any of the topics listed here or other scams, rumors and hoaxes relevant to Islam and Christianity that you are aware of. Please send us your information.

False claims about Islam:

Christian wishful thinking:

  • Joshua's Long Day: [claims], [intro], [NASA], [no], [no], [no], [no], [no], [no], [evidences?], [possible explanation]
    Humorous interlude: Kid's quote: The greatest miracle in the Bible is when Joshua told his son to stand still and he obeyed him.
  • A Whale of a Tale: Fundamentalist Fish Stories
  • Darwin's Confession is thoroughly exposed in the book which by the way is a wonderful read and gives much insight into Darwin's thinking, into the (religious) environment of his time etc. Very educational.
    Online article on Darwin's conversion from Reason & Revelation.

  • Also most of what comes under the claims of a mathematical miracle or scientific miracle of the Qur'an (or the Bible) certainly belongs in the section of hoaxes, and finds its fans among believers of (all?) religions, but certainly Jews, Muslims and Christians.
