Islamic Science: Does Islamic literature contain scientific miracles?

Post by Guest on Mon May 25, 2015 9:30 am

Over the last decade growing numbers of Muslims have declared the Qur'an to be a book filled with alleged scientific miracles. Numerous web sites, books and videos have been produced that proclaim Islam to be truly a religion of divine origin, citing "scientifically accurate" statements in the Qur'an and Hadiths. Many of these productions introduce their claims with a statement like this:

One of the most remarkable things in the Quran is how it deals with science. The Quran which was revealed in the 7th century to Muhammed (p.b.u.h.) contains unbelievable scientific facts which are being discovered in this century. Scientists are shocked and many times speechless when they are shown how detailed and accurate some verses in the Quran are to modern science. For those who doubt the truth of Islam, I ask you: Could Muhammad, a 7th century desert Arab , from a poor and barbaric society, with no tradition of knowledge, philosopy and learning as the Greeks, with no author as prolific as Homer or Plato, an uneducated orphan who could not read and write, produce a book like the Qur'an if it was not from God?

This article will confront this question, as well as confront the various verses from the Qur'an which Muslim's cite as scientific miracles. This article will also look into various scientific absurdities found in the Qur'an and Hadiths that many Muslims fail to mention.

Interesting as if Tommy thinks this article is waffle, I guess he thinks there is science after all in Islam then.
I certainly don't.

Don't forget we are made from clay, I remember a song from years ago, called I think, " he took a 100 lbs of clay" Perhaps there' something in it after all!

do you want to know why the whole days and years argument is stupid??? At least to anyone that understands Physics Suspect

Days and years are measurements of rotation not time Wink
the whole thing is relevant to Earth only. there is no such thing as a day or year in space and on other planets it is completely different.

trying to work out the universe by looking at earth alone is like trying to work out the picture in a 1000000+ piece puzzle by looking at only one piece

I read the first two paragraphs of the op and that was what I commented on.




If the rest of the article thinks it is waffle too then we are in agreement.

The article goes on to systematically debunk claims that Islamic literature predicts scientific facts or discoveries.

The reality is Tommy Blooper never reads anything presented to him and this is further proof of that. proving how close minded he is.

Even the third paragraph was a dead giveaway:

This article will confront this question, as well as confront the various verses from the Qur'an which Muslim's cite as scientific miracles. This article will also look into various scientific absurdities found in the Qur'an and Hadiths that many Muslims fail to mention.
