  • Ijaz Ahmed,

    You are not posting the full debate. There are various points made by Jay Smith in that full debate that need to be refuted. Unfortunately, this is just a part of that video. I know that Jay Smith made various claims that are present in the full video. For example, one christian commentator says, “Mansur wants to use the 2 sigma distribution of the probabilities of the date for the manuscript as a uniform distribution (i.e. equal probability of being any of the dates in the range). This is not how the distribution works. The rnage of dates is a normal distribution (a “bell curve”) centred around the mean (not the median – this makes no sense in the context of a probability distribution, but I think this is what Jay meant) with a 95% confidence interval of 2 sigma.

    The notion that there is an equal probability of the dating being at the 2 sigma point and at the mean point of the distribution is a mathematical nonsense.”

    Another Christian says,

    “Mansoor is ridiculous. All he’s done is agree with everything that Jay has said. His only disagreement is on purpose and technicalities. Then you’ve got that mino in the background (Ali Dawah?) acting as Mansoor’s cheerleader.

    All they’ve done is rearrange the furniture. Jay’s argument still remains.”

  • I know, this video is only 3 minutes long. The entire debate is an 1 hour+. Did you expect the entire debate to fit into 3 minutes…? This is one video of others that I’m doing….

  • Brother Ijaz Ahmed,

    When will you prepare a response to the full debate of this video? We know that Jay Smith made several claims about these manuscript and we need many clarifications regarding this issue.

  • I’ve got two debates within the next month. I myself didn’t hear any claims that would need responding to, that has not already been taken care of.

    If there’s any claim in particular, and you would like a response to it, send me a message and I’ll take a look at it.

  • Brother Ijaz, will you respond to the question I asked in the comment? The question was raised by a Christian who commentated on this video on youtube. Anyway here is the statement he made:-

    “Mansur wants to use the 2 sigma distribution of the probabilities of the date for the manuscript as a uniform distribution (i.e. equal probability of being any of the dates in the range). This is not how the distribution works. The rnage of dates is a normal distribution (a “bell curve”) centred around the mean (not the median – this makes no sense in the context of a probability distribution, but I think this is what Jay meant) with a 95% confidence interval of 2 sigma.

    The notion that there is an equal probability of the dating being at the 2 sigma point and at the mean point of the distribution is a mathematical nonsense.”

    Brother Ijaz, will you reply?

    Thanks.
