Oh I'm just going to work on Qur'an 15:19 and it says in Arabic a language that you cannot read speak or write:

wa al-arda madadnaahaa wa al-qaynaa fiha rawasi

Or: and the earth (we) spread it out and (we) placed in it pegs/anchors (rawasi) (root RSW)

>Q15:19 does not say the earth was flat.

Yes it does not say dahaahaa or he made it flat but it says he spread it out and it does not say and he made it like an ostrich egg for sure or baydat al-na3ama

>It says that God created the Earth by spreading it out like a carpet

Really? then where do I find the word sijadda or busat or carpet in the above verse? you will not find either word and do you know what this means? It means that your translation is bogus and that you cannot read Arabic and you need to stick to Urdu

>and set mountains

Mountains? whwre would I find the word Jibal (mountians) or even the Syriac word tur in the above aya? Do you know what this means? It means that your translation is bogus and that you cannot read the arabic text and you are editing your Allah's little book and you need to stick to Urdu

>to act as weights to keep it steady.

So mr demagogue do mountains keep the earth steady and free from earth quakes? And if so Pakiland should be earth quakes free as you have many mountains there. So is Pakiland earth quake free mr demagogue?

> Surely you have seen how the earth's crust is layered out.

Really? and where would I find in the Qur'an abnything close to

inna qishr al-ard ma3mool min tabaqat

You will not find it. Your Allah is saying that he spread the earth out which I read as he made it flat

>Have you seen a cross section drawing of the earth's crust??? It looks like it is smoothed out and layered like a carpet huh??? Now, how would man know that back then? "Over time the Earth cools and separates into several different layers

gobbledygook.
