Faisal,

Your comments are so weak, they crumble on themselves. You speak of the bible mentioning pillars in heaven. First of all, your only evidence against pillars in heaven comes from the Koran, which is far from scientifically proven. Secondly, the bible speaks of pillars in heaven, not as physical objects, but as spirits who are in high standing in heaven. Unlkie Islam as detailed in the Koran, Christians do not see heaven as a physical place that can be physically found somewhere out in space. We do not believe in the middle earth theory of the 5th century that there are seven heavens or seven physical earths as detailed in Sahih Bukhari 3:43:643.

The Quran 65:12 claim that there only 7 planets in the universe, yet modern science knows of 8 planets and several dwarf planets in our solar system alone. Scientists have found hundreds of planets within the known universe.

In Sahih Bukhari 4:56:831, it speaks of the moon splitting in two and then coming back together. There is no evidence that the moon ever split, much less came back together.

Quran 21:16 states that the moon emits light. The moon doesnt emit light, it reflects it. Quaran 24:35 clearly reiterates that the light is from within the moon, not reflected.

Quran 18:86 and 18:90 clearly states that Mohammed went to the rising and setting places of the sun. This is clearly based on the flat earth theory, commonly held at the time of the writing of the Quran.

Quran 67:5 and 37:10 claim that shooting stars are missiles being shot at devils?? ha!

Quaran 37:6 states that "Surely We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment, the stars". Through science we know that the stars are not near at all, but located far far away in other galaxies.

Quran 2:29 states that the earth was created before the stars, but we know through science that many of the elements that make up the earth would have originated from nucleosynthesis that occurs in supernovas.

Need more doubt? I have dozens more.
