"The Qur'an contains scientific, medical and democratical knowledge (FACT). The Qur'an explains the concept of birth, evolution and space - which have all proven to be scientifically correct (FACT). AS for rage and ignorance, thats your opinion."

Surely we don't need my opinion of ignorance. You give everyone understanding by your own words, friend.

Qur'an says the sun sinks into a murky pool in the earth every night. That would make it, what? The size of a tennis ball? How can something so small heat the earth? And how does it get back to the east to rise in the morning? Can a muslim fly around the world in an airplane? Or does fear of striking the sun keep muslims on the ground? (Do you REALLY believe? We must judge by actions, not by empty words.)

Qur'an says babies come from liquid that originates near the back, and begin as blood clots. That is not a baby. It is tissue from the woman's body that comes out if she is NOT pregnant. We know that many tribes of the muslims, especially Arabs, marry a first cousin. We also see many boy children placed in hospitals because this close inbreeding is bad after many generations. The Bible forbids marrying too closely, to prevent this problem. (Where are the poor girl children? So easy to smother a girl baby at birth, and hope for a healthy boy?)

Qur'an says the sky is held up by pillars. (They better be short pillars, too--or we all will have a lot of trouble breathing! Qur'an does not know the "sky" has our air!) That "pillar" idea makes the sky a canopy. Also, it makes the earth flat. Anyone who has seen a ship sail *down* over the horizon has seen it travel on the *curve* of the earth. Even the shadow of the earth on the moon shows a ball. Now the Bible describes the earth (and hints about the rainbow) as a circle--a word that can mean sphere. How can we be sure it is sphere? The Almighty will put our sins as far away as the east is from the west. North and South have poles. There is no end to east-west--for a ball!

Again, from the Islamic material we learn that the sex of a baby is decided by who finishes the sex act first: the father or mother.... The father is said to "plow a field" - as if his seed is all that determines the child. The Bible shows better knowledge hundreds and thousands of years earlier. David the King tells how the Almighty "knit me together in my mother's womb"--the joining of the male and female seeds into a single "fabric", not a "blood clot". The same psalm describes building the baby's parts--out of the "knit" cell, with all its genes in place. You cannot build a different person's body parts from a blood clot.

The New Testament also shows real understanding of human child making. Geneologies are given for both the adoptive father and the biological mother of Jesus of Nazareth, to prove his claim to David's throne by descent thru the mother, as well as legal descent through the adoptive father.

I am so sorry that people are kept in such darkness. This is not possible for the Bible, which gives truth beyond human understanding, that we learn only after thousands of years. It was in our days that we learn rainbows really DO look like complete circles--but only from the sky, where the Almighty can look down and remember his unending promise, like a circle without an end....

The unending faithfulness and love of the Almighty in the Bible are desperately needed by the lost people of the house of Ismael.

Oh, and rage? Again the Bible: "Why do the nations rage? Why do they plot and scheme?" Not much slips by Someone who knows everything. Better to be forgiven than judged, friend.
Submitting....
