And more islamic voodoo science

This was my question to our dear Nasr whose ancestors the Hindus were brutlaized by islam and Muslims

3. Is is true that the Qur'an says that the earth is the center of the univese and that the sun orbits earth?

And this is his answer

Answer (3)you can read what i post before about the course of sun. and course of moon revolving.returning phase. The sun was not mention with description of returning phase. So its clear they are all moving with its orbit.

Can you tell us O glorious madrassa graduate one more time does the Qur'an a book that you cannot read in Arabic say that the earth is the center of the universe and that the sun orbits earth? Hint this is what the Qur'an says as per not me but according to the Mufti of Saudi Arabia el-Sheikh Bin Baz

I will be waiting for your answer

Then I asked him

4. Is it true as per الشيخ بن باز in his book جريان الشمس والقمر وسكون الارض that the sun and the moon orbit earth so is that true our dear Nasr the wannabe Arab or was his a liar and an Islamophobe? And before you answer you must be aware that the good ole Shiek issued a fatwa that an one who disagrees with him is a kafir

And this is his answer

Answer (4)if you read a hadith about eclipse, then you will understand that celestial bodies do not flow in same orbit. If the sun and moon had eclipse in same orbit , doesnt that mean they collided?

Hello: my question is very clear and you tell me what does this have to do with what Shiekh Bin Baz's book? Oh let me guess you cannot read the Arabic right? So let me ask you again is it true that Sheikh Bin Baz in his book "The running of the sun and the moon and the stationary of earth" is telling us that the Qur'an says that the earth is stationary and it is the center of the universe and the sun and the moon orbit the stationary earth and that this is what the Qur'an?

You could not read it because you cannot read Arabic and this means that you have no shame

But what does it mean if one also wishes to interpret as all celestial body moving in one orbit.

I did not say that so you tell me where did I say that?

If we look at earth, moon and sun. All of them are orbiting the centre mass of galaxy which again is correct by definition if one whishes to interpret all moving in one orbit.

Really? so where would i find anything in the Qur'an even close this gobbledygook?

Your Allah was an avid reader of Ptolemy

What a disaster ...
