Are the the old testament, the new testament, the Quran or the book of Mormon all works of divine origin?
If not then which ones are not?

They might be.
The Old and the New Testaments are.
The Book of Mormon is. I speak from experience. It is the necessary second witness of Jesus Christ.
The Quran might not have come from God, but Islam is certainly better than paganism or idolatry.

Old Testament, New Testament: Yes.
Quran, book of Mormon: Absolutely not, since they disagree with the Bible.

Nope. None of them are. They are all products of their time.

Obviously not, since the Quran and the book of Mormon both contradict the Bible, which is the inspired Word of God. God cannot contradict Himself.

Depends on who you ask and what their faith is. IMHO there is enough evidence to show that they all were written by men. Divine or not, it was written by men.

If you can suspend whatever beliefs you have and step back to objectively evaluate each one compared to the others, you could very easily come to the conclusion that each describes a different god. The real question is how would you know if any book or writing was of divine origin or even inspiration? Ulness you use objective facts, every other "method" will come down to a single person's beliefs.
Each group that follows one (or more) of those books will absolutely assert that their book/way is the correct (or more correct) way of viewing God, and yet, they can only offer arguments, rather than objective evidence. For example, Christians will point to numerous scriptures, or messianic prophecies, that Jesus fulfilled, while Jews will point out that those scriptures are not messianic prophecies and Jesus fulfilled none of those that the Jews consider to be prophecies, while Islam doesn't, as I understand it, address the Messiah at all.
You give us an objective way to evaluate these, as well as any other, writings and you will have done the world a great service

The Bible was written over 1600 years by 40 authors. It was written on three continents in three languages. No matter where it was written somehow all the papers came together and stayed together to end up in our hands.
One man wrote a book “inspired by an angel” and called it ‘the Koran’.
One man wrote a book “inspired by an angel” and called it ‘the Book of Mormon’.
Decide for yourself.
