Bounties from disprovers of Islam
Ali Sina’s site has a bounty posted:
If you do not like this site and want me to remove it, instead of acting as a bully or as a victim, disprove my charges against Muhammad logically. Not only will I remove the site, I will publicly announce that Islam is a true religion. I will also pay $50,000 U.S. dollars to anyone who can disprove any of the dozen of the accusations that I have made against Muhammad.
$50,000! You’d think somebody would take Ali Sina up on the challenge. Not so. The challenge reward is unclaimed since 2001, so then challenge doubles down:
As of this day, I am also doubling the reward. If you are not a reputable scholar, you can still win the prize. All you have to do is persuade a scholar to debate with me. If he (she) disproves my charges or can prove that Muhammad was a prophet of God, both you and he (she) will be rewarded $50,000 dollars each. This is to encourage you to write to your admired scholar and convince them that Islam is in danger and that it is their duty to defend it. Once you write to invite someone, please CC a copy to us for announcing the invitation. Our email is faithfreedom2 (at) gmail.com
. . . that was posted in 2007. The challenge still stands.
Next comes the bounty by the YouTube user AhmadsQuran3 (cause he’s been banned a few times before). Under the pseudonym I.Q. Al Rassooli, he’s posted a series of chapters – over 200 so far – with a companion site here. He’s challenged anyone to disprove his interpretations of Islamic texts twice. Most recently the challenge is stated at £10,000.
