    Perhaps because of the similar reason we've been given free will: freedom has a necessary risk factor in a temporal envrioment but the benefits outweigh the risk. Regarding the Bible, the benefits of understanding the spiritual message of the Bible far exceeds the possible risk factor of not understanding it in the human conundrum.

    Since one of these views is profoundly mistaken, is there a good reason to believe that the mistaken view, be it Muslim or Christian, actually knows much about God?
    Both faiths actually share many similarities. The most important one I would say is: "There is only one God. He is the Creator and Sustainer of the universe." As far as "knowing much about God" verses knowing God, how do you know who knows what?

    Fiction
    What's fiction? I presume that's your opinion of the message of the Bible. What's the message?
