This is the lecture which Jay was not permitted to give at City University (in Kowloon), back in November. The day before he was scheduled to give it, the Muslims went to the University authorities and called him a 'hate preacher', as well as an 'Islamophobe', and 'a liar'. For some odd reason the authorities believed them without even talking to Jay and had him banned.
Nonetheless, Jay was still able to give his lecture at a Lutheran church next to the school, which, though they had never met him, opened their doors for him. Yet, academic lectures like this are better suited for secular universities, not church buildings.
Observe the 11 areas Jay unpacks in this lecture, which include:
[A] What do modern Muslim Leaders Claim?
[B] What did early Muslim Scholars Say?
[C] Historical Anachronisms
[D] Source Criticism
[E] The 2 Compilations of the Qur’an
[F] The 6 Earliest Qur’anic Manuscripts
[G] The 2 Layers of the Sana’a Palimpsest
[H] The 4 Carbon Dating Lab Reports
[I] The late Diacritical Variants (i.e. 31 different Arabic Qur’ans)
[J] The early Consonantal Variants
[K] The History of the 1924 ‘Hafs’ canonized text
After going through all 11 criticisms you decide whether what he is teaching is "hateful", or “Islamophobic”, or "full of lies".
No Christian anywhere would do the same and ban any Muslim who would critique the Bible likewise.
But then the Bible has been scrutinized and criticized for over two centuries now in every one of these 11 areas, and has stood up to every criticism, something the Qur'an is only now beginning to enjoy.
After watching this video, you decide whether this material and the new research Jay is introducing is worthy of a ban.
And after looking at the 11 areas Jay addresses, comment below concerning whether you believe that the Qur'an is 1) eternal, 2) sent down to Muhammad, 3) Completed in 652 AD, and 4) exactly the same as that created in 652 AD?
Is the Qur'an really a book which has never had any intentional human interventions, or is it a book like any other, written by men, changed and corrected by other men, and then finally canonized by yet other men, a mere 95 years ago.
