Dear Richard,

Some says like you Quran has contradictions they say that
"According to Sura 21:76, Noah and his family is saved from the flood, and Sura 37:77 confirms that his seed survived. But Sura 11:42-43 reports that Noah's son drowns. "

Here is Sura (verse) 76-78
76. And We rescued him and his family from the great distress (i.e. drowning),

77. And, his progeny, them We made the survivors (i.e. Shem, Ham and Japheth).

78. And left for him (a goodly remembrance) among generations to come in later times:


Jewish Bible says
Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham and Japheth (Gen 6:10 ).

According to Quran
So it (the ship) sailed with them amidst the waves like mountains, and Nûh (Noah) called out to his son, who had separated himself (apart), "O my son! Embark with us and be not with the disbelievers." (11:42)

43. The son replied: "I will betake myself to a mountain, it will save me from the water." Nûh (Noah) said: "This day there is no saviour from the Decree of Allâh except him on whom He has mercy." And a wave came in between them, so he (the son) was among the drowned. (11:43)

Quran says that he (the son) was among the drowned. It doesn´t say Sons of Noah were drowned.

It is obvious that Christians don't read their Bible correctly. When someone gives misleading information about Quran They accept as a fact without checking it. This is valid for all those misinformation Quran. If they read their book they will find how it confirms Quran. They are coming from the same source.
