>Ill educated personal insults do not clarify matters here. Cut and paste are so useful. I am not your "dear Thomas", that address is patronising and offensive. It is an insult.

Hello: respect is earned and learn to give credit to your sources and while we are at it check the word plaqiarism in a dictionary

>Allah had no clue who is really Ptolemy Allah, we are told in the Koran, is all knowing and all wise. The Ptolemaic universe described in the Koran is inaccurate.

Hello: The Qur'an is really a book of ignorance you are not telling me anyhting that i d not know and why would Allah have no clue about let us say Kepler or Copernicus or Gallelio? Let me answer this one because Allah's so called cosmology is bogus

>Galen in the Qur'an? really? where? References to human generation

It is called Embryology and all of it was known already to the Greeks but what is damaging to Muslims and to islam is that

1. Allah tells us in the book of ignorance that he is the best creators! So who are the other creators?

2. And if he is really the best then how come 25% of pregnanices end in spontaneous abortions? Imagine if you or I are working and creating let us say TVs and 25% of what we make is defective? We will be fired! Allah is a poor creator now do you get it?

>do nothing more than demonstrate Galen's abilities as an observer with nothing more than his unaided eyes and other sensory organs.

Sure and this is why al-khalfia al-ma'moon in 9th century Baghdad and with the help of Nestorians the likes of Hunien Ibn Ishaq (he was Nestorian) translated the great works of the Greeks as in medicine to Syriac and then to Arabic so the knowledge was already there and all Allah had to do was to plagiarize the works of the Greeks and this is why you must give credit to your sources our dear Thomas! or do you want to be a plagiarist like the author of the Qur'an?

>and much can be found which was taken from Gnostic and Apochryphal sources as well as canonical Jewish and Christian writings. Do you or do you not agree with this statement? Your answer is meaningless unless you agree that the Koran is of human authorship.

What gave you the imprsession that I believe that there is an Allah or that the Qur'an dropped from the sky and revealed to an Arabian warlord and caravan raider? You tell me

Istislam means submission so why is Islam is not called istislam? Any guesses? For the same reason as Allah is not Alillah.

Oh stop it you do not know any Arabic or Greek and the word in Herodotus is Alilat

>Useage causes words to change.

Hello: the word istislam and Islam are very stable words due to the activity called the Muslim masora so you tell us again: Why is islam not called Istislam? Let me help you: because as i explained to you Luxenberg is correct

>And what does Jesus have to do with the religion of the Arabs? Oh let me see: The Qur'an says that Jesus must be God right our dear Thomas? Jesus is one of the most named persons in the Koran. It does not state that Jesus must be God.

Hello: the Qur'an says that Jesus did not die and that he created life and the only being that can do that is a god then Jesus must be God and i'm not the author of this poor theology

>Incidentally, I am not your "dear Thomas" I could go on, but this is tedious.

No the "tedious" is he who cut and paste and brag about it and then would not give credit to his sources
