The Quranic geocentric universe! What a disaster

Reader comment on item: Ankara at War
in response to reader comment: Influence of Arab-Muslim science on Western science

Submitted by dhimmi no more (United States), Nov 21, 2012 at 11:50

Our dear Hava who ain't no Hava or Bishoy either in his haste to cut and paste about Islam and science he was not aware that the author of this ridiculous piece of work was not aware among other things that Hunein Ibn Ishaq was not Muslim and he was Nestorian Christian and the oldest extant copy of his work "TetraBiblos" is his Arabic translation of this great work

But here is the disaster: the author Ptolemy believed that earth in the center of the universe and that the sun and the moon orbit this stationary earth and guess what our dear hava? this is what you will find in the Qur'an: The bogus geocentric universe or Ptolemy and his Almagest!

You think that you and i can do lunch with Allah and tell him to stop reading Ptoemy and start reading other kuffar works the likes of Copernicus and Kepler?

What a disaster the Quranic flat earth that is stationary and the moon and the sun that orbit earth!
