>>hint - this is what we learn in 2nd year school science; no need to explain the obvious - it makes you sound patronising...

if it is something you learn at an elementary level ,why would you bring it up as a case against the qurans genuinity? in the quran ALLAH tells that the sun moves along its own path. modern science proves it and calls it the solar apex. certainly your druid ancestors couldnt have known that. they couldnt since they moved with it. thats all. the stonehenge definitely did not help detect the sun moving in an apex with all its planets. it simply showed how the sun 'rose' and 'set'

>>

So the Koran states that the Sun has made over 200 revolutions around the galactic centre?

does it have to ? isnt it enough when ALLAH says all the heavenly bodies are moving about their individual courses in harmony ? i believe ALLAH was confident of the intelligence HE granted you so as to figure this out. im sure HE knew it wasnt necessary to mention that the sun made 200 revolutions to convince you of that.

you should drop your ethnocentric , racial and cultural biases for just long enough to appreciate that very little is actually known of the Druids which you've used as an example. Anglo-Saxon people do not necessaily descend from Druids. And casting them as primitive is hardly the position you should be taking. If Islamic BanglaDesh had such enlightened forebears - what the hell happened????

what happened is your descendnts happened. we were doing just fine till the east india company came in. colonialism happened. oh we have you to thank for all the misery we 'enjoy' today. dont be modest now. im sure you have that amount of historical knowledge to know how your british ancestors ruined this land. and so much for your enlightened disposition, need i mention that the renaissance wouldnt have occured without the influence of islamic spain? that the so called modern world has islam to thank for all the knowledge that it had preserved and transmitted? it is undeniable that europe is what it is today because of islam.

>>

You've left out the Chinese and many others but, yes, other cultures were far more advanced scientifically than the early Muslims. I totally agree.

so they were advanced even when they couldnt figure out the planet they were iving in? they were advanced even when they did not know the sun made a solar apex? even when muslims knew them instead? makin a stonehenge isnt a sign of advncement. it is merely an effort. it hardly gave people correct information. thats why it is just a historical showpiece today.

The honour is misplaced. There is no concerted effort against you, an individual. Different people write in response to absurd statements from any individuals. Do not take it personally, it would not matter who made them. In short - you set yourself up for such 'honour'.

you are modest . although i do enjoy the honor a lot, it does make you look like you are a bit too eager to please. maybe you should keep a check on that. your friend plato knows what im talking about. lol.

But now the poor arab is even more confused - hecan ask questions about the cow - what does it eat, what does it breathe, what was it standing on before it was standing on the back of the fish; how does it stay adhered to the back of the fish as it swims along; why is the fish always swimming just nder the surface - or can the cow breathe underwatre too?;how can glutinous water float on air, how can all this rest on darkness .... ad infinitum.

the arab is at least given a rough picture of things. the prophets figurative explanation is way better than yours which is just dying to be brief. the arab is never meant to understand the whole of this concept. he just sought a rough and rudiemntary explanation. you wouldnt really have done any better.

how is a cow with 4,000 horns , the giant fish etc etc a metaphor for anything?

aww gee, i dunno. how about the centripetal and centrifugal forces on the earth. and ALLAH knows what other forces that act on this planet not yet discovered. by giant fish you get a rough idea that the earth is moving. it does move. it revolves. by glutinous water means the path is fixed or sluggish. the earth does move around in a circular motion and not for once does it stray. thanks to the sticky gelatinous water of course.

and as for the woman battering in the uk. it is fact. people who live there know it. university conducted statistics show it. the only thing that remains to be done is to throw the proof in your face. and those facts show non muslims battering their women.i wonder if that is the reason why so many european and british ladies are reverting to islam. ALLAH be praised.
