How would you reply to Rashad Khalifa's number 19 theory, where he removed 2 Noble Verses from the Noble Quran because their references were not multiples of the number 19?

My response to Rashad Khalifa's number 19 hoax is as follows:

You can't prove or disprove a religion or Verses in a Holy Scripture through mathematical equations.

This whole number "19" theory is a big hoax. Allah Almighty never mentioned anything about the number 19 being a "Holy Number". So what? He decided to put 19 guards or angels on the gates of hell; "Over it are Nineteen. And We have set none but angels as Guardians of the Fire; and We have fixed their number only as a trial for Unbelievers,- in order that the People of the Book may arrive at certainty, and the Believers may increase in Faith,- and that no doubts may be left for the People of the Book and the Believers, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the Unbelievers may say, 'What symbol doth God intend by this ?' Thus doth God leave to stray whom He pleaseth, and guide whom He pleaseth: and none can know the forces of thy Lord, except He and this is no other than a warning to mankind. (The Noble Quran, 74:30-31)" What in the world does this have to do with the quantity of the Verses of the Noble Quran and their validity?! Rashad Khalifa used his mathematical number 19 denominator hoax and decided since the two Noble Verses' (9:128-129) numerical references don't have the number 19 as their common denominator after they're added to other Noble Verses, then they must be removed! Where in the Noble Quran does it tell us or suggests for us to remove the two Noble Verses or any other Noble Verses that Rashad Khalifa decided to remove?! Since when do we consider conclusions, assumptions and hoaxes as the Ultimate Truth?

Yes, the number 19 is miraculous in the Noble Quran and was proven to be essential in many of the Scientific Theories and Discoveries.

But Rashad Khalifa's removal of the two Noble Verses conclusion reminds me of the Trinity conclusion dogma. It too is nothing but a conclusion. The word itself, "Trinity", doesn't even exist in the Bible, and yet, it is the very central faith for the Trinitarian Christianity, because they thought or decided it should be so.

If we were to take this hoax logic, then how about taking the number 2, since Allah Almighty created us in pairs; "O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other. Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well-acquainted. (The Noble Quran, 49:13)" Should we remove all odd numbered Noble Verses from the Noble Quran?! I mean, where does all of this nonsense connect?!

How about the number 7? Allah Almighty created Earth in 7 layers. How about coming up with some hoax theory that would remove a bunch of Noble Verses from the Noble Quran because their references are not multiples of the number 7?

How about the number 4? Did you know that the words "Allah", "Muhammad", "Jesus", and "Moses" are written in 4 letters in Arabic? "Allah" is written as "A L L H". "Muhammad" is written as "M H M D". "Jesus" is written as "E E S A". "Moses" is written as "M O S A". How about making the number 4 as a holy number in Islam and remove all of the Noble Verses in the Noble Quran which reference number is not a multiple of 4?

Allah Almighty never said that the number "19" is the number that the Noble Quran's quantity of Verses is based on. This is nothing but a nonsense that was invented by some mathematician who knew computer programming and wrote a code that generated some nonsense that he considered as statistical analysis on the Noble Quranic Verses and thought he could become a Messenger of Allah Almighty.

His whole theory contradicts the Noble Quran which he supposedly sincerely believes in; "Surely, we have revealed this scripture, and surely, we will preserve it. (The Noble Quran, 15:9)" Is Allah Almighty waiting for someone to discover a corruption 1400 years after the Noble Quran was revealed? He the Almighty promised to preserve the Noble Quran. So removing two Noble Verses from it totally contradicts the Revelations of Allah Almighty in the Noble Quran.

By the way, I have a masters degree in computer science. My oldest brother has a Ph.D in Applied Mathematics, and my older sister almost has her Masters degree Mathematics.

We would never even dare to think about messing with the Noble Quran like this as the joker Rashad Khalifa did.

Is he a Kafir (Unbeliever)? Or is he an Apostate (Renegade)?

He is neither. He is worse! He is a "dajjal", a liar and deceiver. I guess we can call him a "kafir" (infidel), but this would be a weak description for a careless liar like him. Allah Almighty Said:

"Know they not Allah Knoweth what they conceal and what they reveal? And there are among them illiterates, who know not the Book (i.e., the Bible), but (see therein their own) desires, and they do nothing but conjecture. Then woe to those who write the Book with their own hands, and then say: 'This is from Allah,' To traffic with it for a miserable price! Woe to them for what their hands do write, and for the gain they make thereby. (The Noble Quran, 2:77-79)"

"But there are, among men, those who purchase idle tales, without knowledge (or meaning), to mislead (men) from the Path of God and throw ridicule (on the Path): for such there will be a Humiliating Penalty. (The Noble Quran, 31:6)"

"These our people have taken for worship gods other than Him: why do they not bring forward an authority clear (and convincing) for what they do? Who doth more wrong than such as invent a falsehood against God? (The Noble Quran, 18:15)"

"Say: the things that my Lord hath indeed forbidden are: shameful deeds, whether open or secret; sins and trespasses against truth or reason; assigning of partners to God, for which He hath given no authority; and saying things about God of which ye have no knowledge. (The Noble Quran, 7:33)"
