Our dear slayhy who tells us that the word dahaaha in Q79:30 means the earth is like the egg of an ostrich and this is stright from Lisan al-3arab the most important dictionary of Arabic

و مَدْحَى النعام : موضع بيضها

Do you know what this says ya ayuha al-gahbi al-kabeer? wa madh al-na3ama mawdi3 baydaha

Let me help you: the ostrich lays her eggs and before she does so she FLATTENS the area of land where she will lay the eggs and this is madh el-na3am IS THE PLACE WHERE SHE LAYS HER EGGS and it is not her eggs but again like a typical ignorant Muslim it is close enough

See what happens when you quote other ignorant Muslims without doing your own research?

How come you did not know that?
