From the Quran and the Hadiths we can see that Islam's Prophet Muhammad, whom Moslems consider to be "the Perfect Man" (and should follow his example for all time) was a morally questionable man at best.

Is a man who ordered the death of hundreds, condoned the rape of women, stole, and created a political/religious doctrine that has produced uncounted dead throughout the centuries really be considered a man who "spoke for God" (Allah)?

I'll like to thank my opponent for choosing to debate this topic, an interesting one for sure. :)

First off, just to make it clear I'll provide the definition for the word "Moral".
Moral:
1.of, pertaining to, or concerned with the principles or rules of right conduct or the distinction between right and wrong;ethical: moral attitudes.
2.expressing or conveying truths or counsel as to right conduct, as a speaker or a literary work; moralizing: a moral novel.
3.founded on the fundamental principles of right conduct rather than on legalities, enactment, or custom: moral obligations.
4.capable of conforming to the rules of right conduct: a moral being.
5.conforming to the rules of right conduct (opposed to immoral): a moral man.
6.virtuous in sexual matters; chaste.
7.of, pertaining to, or acting on the mind, feelings, will, or character: moral support.
8.resting upon convincing grounds of probability; virtual: a moral certainty.

I'll be arguing the pro side that Muhammad was a moral man.

I will present my first rebuttal next round once my opponent posts.

*Sigh*

MY OPPONENT FAILED TO ARGUE THAT MUHAMMAD WASN'T A MORAL MAN!

Meh, whatever. What a lame debate. IF YOU WANT TO DEBATE, DON'T FORFEIT!
