I watched the interview between Medhi Hassan and Richard Dawkins and just this clip of the interview stood out. Medhi Hassan went to oxford and is political editor of the Huffington Post UK and the presenter of al-Jazeera ­English's The Café. I can see the absurdity in his belief and I suppose others can too but it seems that people can't see the absurdity in their own belief. Richard is astonished that he believes in Mohammed going to heaven on a flying horse and Medhi Hassan asked Richard to prove that he didn't. It is like believing in Pegasus from Greek mythology. At the end of the video is the supposed place that Mohammed tied up his flying horse. Through out the interview Medhi was trying to discredit and catch him in something.

Or believing in a burning bush that talks or an eight armed blue person orfeeding the masses with a single fish and loaf of bread.

I'm sure there's a thousand more bits of silliness in the religious texts yet billions of people believe this tripe.

I wonder if Christians believe in winged horses? Unicorns and giants are in the bible, so I'm curious as to what their opinion would be on this.

I think the whole thing is bunk btw. Why a winged horse? Why not just an ascent into heaven like Jesus or Enoch?

Mohammed had to split the moon in two as well so I guess he needed Pegasus for some help.

Winged horses? Why not? Christians believe this:

11 As they were walking along and talking together, suddenly a chariot of fire and horses of fire appeared and separated the two of them, and Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind.
2 Kings 2

I forgot about that I guess that story was borrowed as well. I just like the astonishment from Dawkins in the video.

If you believe in a deity who is all-powerful and created all there is, then you also believe that deity can, when it chooses, work things that defy reality. They almost never do so, but they can. So for a Muslim to believe Mohammad rode a winged horse sent by Allah? OK.

It's no more weird than for the dev of an MMO to design a special avatar for him or herself that no one else in the game world can have and to bestow special titles on select gamers who happen to run across said dev. They are like gods dispensing miracles. They know the code of their world and they can rewrite it at their choosing.

Yes well, Dawkins did admit that he WAS unable to PROVE that a winged horse DIDN'T carry Muhammad to heaven, so I guess Dawkins is a winged horse agnostic!
