Fascinating Talk Exploring An Interesting Question
This is really a fascinating talk on an important subject. The author makes a very cogent argument that Mohammad didn't exist and was created, at least Islam was created, to provide a religious basis for the government of the places conquered by Arab forces. The suggesting is that Islam was created somewhere around 690 to provide religious cohesion against the surrounding Byzantine and Persian alternatives. Very effective and interesting talk.
