Muhammad Sven Kalisch is an Islamic researcher at the University of Münster. He is also the first person in Germany to hold a Chair of Islamic Religion. Kalisch's recent public admission that he is unsure whether the Prophet Muhammad was actually a historical person has got him into hot water. Peter Philipp has the details
"The results were such that it is my conviction that it cannot be proven whether Muhammad actually lived or not," said Kalisch. "I believe that there is no definite answer to this question, although I must admit that I tend more towards the view that he did not exist. However, one must be able to say so and one must be able to have an academic debate about it."

Well, I really have no stake in this argument. However, to me, it matters little. If he existed, he existed. If he didn't, he didn't.
Christianity comes under the same attack by secularist. They claim, "Well, there is no evidence that such a man ever lived." What exactly would meet their standards of proof?
