In the video, the caller doesn't specify where that "obvious distinction" comes from, he just kind of says something and Richard the glasses guy who doesn't know what he's talking about just goes along with it. However, I'm not going to fall into the trap of debating logic in a faith based religion, there are a lot of fail-safes inherent in faith based religions that prevent logical debate. If you really want the answers to those questions then try hitting up the Wikipedia articles I linked to earlier, they'll probably give you a better answer than I can.

As Latiosmaster47 has said, there are better places to research this than a gaming site. Google Christ Islam and check out some of the varied sites.
My opinion? Jesus said a bunch of things indicating His claim to deity. Just because I don't have the capacity to understand how God works, doesn't mean I have to doubt that it works. If I could comprehend deity, surely I would be equal to it.
Which I most definitely am not.
He clearly stated there place in the bible.. :S
And they are true from what i'v read about jesus..
Now it's just used as yet another argument for wars and killing, if only by a small minority. As far as I see it, modern religion is no more than the argument of who's right and who's wrong, and that includes Atheists and Agnostics.
If I ever see a leader of every religion sit down as equals and talk to each other as human beings in my lifetime... hell, even I'll start going to church.
That's just my two cents. Feel free to ignore it, or argue with it, but I won't respond. I've been avoiding this thread because I've gotten into too many of these discussions and they've all gone south and descended into a flame war, every one. I felt like I should add my part to it though, and I somehow doubt this one will follow the same path as the others. But, having said my piece, I bid you adieu.
But I think that if you have a religion, cool, now just don't go bugging others about it. It just makes people upset and more than a few fights. It's ridiculous. Everyone should just chill and get on with their lives. If they believe in their own faith, then they need to respect others who believe in a different faith, or don't believe in any at all.
Heck, my own father is Muslim and he doesn't try to force me to become Muslim too or something, and I don't try to convince him to drop his religion and go all scientific.
And this whole 'My religion is better than yours' cra*? Stupid. Just stupid. And biased. Obviously.
But yes, most people believe solely because it makes them comfortable, for the most part, doing what makes one comfortable is human nature.
For the record, I am an Atheist.
