Apart from fulfilled prophecy, the Bible shows that God is powerful enough to protect His own interests here on Earth.
This deity “allah” can’t protect his own interests- he has to employ legions of Rage Boys to kill and maim those who don’t accept his demands. What kind of person signs up for that duty?
I have free speech and if the followers of “allah” don’t like my opinion of their beliefs, they can kiss a pig.
