Inaccurate science in the Quran?
« on: July 16, 2012, 09:14:59 PM »
I am not a scientist and therefore cannot address the claims made in the wikiislam article about scientific inaccuracies in the Quran but for those who can, have any of you seen this and what is your take on their commentary and the translations they rely on and comment on?

Listen, and understand! That Terminator is out there! It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.


We here have different views from salaat, to haj, to qibla to shirk to many fiqh issues. But there is something that binds us all, is we take our deen from the Quran and we recognize its authority over anything else. - BigMo

there are many websites and videos about this, and an equal number refuting them.

From my studies, most are either based on traditional understandings, lack of cross-reference, selecting one meaning over another without validity, erroneous conclusions/assumptions etc.

But people are of course welcome to study them.
All information in my posts is correct to the best of my knowledge only and thus should not be taken as a fact. One should seek knowledge and verify: 17:36, 20:114, 35:28, 49:6, 58:11. My articles

Peace AK85.

All are mistranslation and misunderstanding. There are many sites dealing with this, Google " Scientific accuracies in Qoran". Here is an example:

There are no inaccuracies, Scientific mistakes or contradictions in Qoran.The best way to find out is to deal with a couple at a time . It will take you a while but it is worthwhile.

Peace AK85.

Start by looking at what evidence, those who claim there are scientific errors. have. Then move to those who support the science evidence of Qoran and compare.

Salaam,

Quran does not contain any science only the truth.

Manipulating the ayaats of The Quran so that it fits science ?s imo as bad as those who manipulate them the other way around.

Peace Bender.

Here is some science in Qoran:

21:30 ? Do the disbelievers ( and those who do not acknowledge or value the creator) not realise that the heavens and the earth used to be one solid mass that We exploded into existence ( Big Bang Theory!), and from water we made all living things? Would they believe?.?

15:16″ We placed Galaxies ( billions of them!) in the sky and adorned it for the beholder.? ( With or without telescope!)

 

 

15:19″ As for the earth, We constructed it and placed on it mountains and We grew on it a perfect balance of everything. ( for all the creatures who inhabit it.)

 

15:20″ We made it habitable for you and for creatures you do not provide for.?

 

15:22″ And We send the winds as pollinators and cause the water to come down from the clouds for you ( and animals) to drink. Otherwise you could not keep it palatable.( If it was not recycled, It will go stale!) There is nothing that We do not own infinite amount of, but We send it down in precise measure.? ( Can you be more precise and Scientific?)
Peace.
