I am sure we are all aware the Islam does not agree with the original sin theory. And I actually thought the idea was long past in most Christian scholarship. But recently when discussing with a friend of mine's mother some of the ideas of Islam I was confronted with the question of how do we atone for the sins of Adam and Eve without Jesus's (PBUTA) sacrifice. I was trying hard not to get into a deep philosophical debate as really a pool party IMO probably isn't the place for it, but under constant questioning I answered her from my belief of how the theory isn't sound in the Bible (and Quran). She of course was then completely confused as to why Jesus (PBUH) would need to be sacrificed if this was true, and I had to further explain that we do not believe he died nor was crucified (although I did give the few scholars opinion that he went through the crucifixion process as it stated but did not die). My main question is this. Is there any scholarly opinions that the original sin theory is accurate? Or if anyone here believes that to be so? If so please explain, why? I'm not trying to demean anyone's beliefs but even when I was Christian I didn't know that many people who thought this way.
