Even logic contradicts this theory of inherited sin, because sin or sinfulness cannot be passed from father to son. Maybe height, eye color, shape, size, body organs and complexion can be transmissible, but inheritance of sin is irrational, illogical and senseless. The Islamic view is in line with the modern scientific findings regarding human nature, and it readily disputes the Christian creed upon this matter of the unborn and inherited sin, the atonement of Christ for mankindís "alleged inherited sin" and thus denies his crucifixion.
This belief in inherited sin also goes against the punishment-reward
principle. How can someone be punished for a sin he has not committed?
It would be against the Divine Justice of the Creator to visit the punishment
of a sin committed by a personís father or grandfather upon the descendant.
