The whole Earth is flat thing is something people interpreted. Why do you take things so literal? These are DIVINE events.

Again, Divine event. Except this was a dream.

Job 26:7 says, "He spreads out the northern skies over empty space;
he suspends the earth over nothing."

I see those verses saying, "The earth cannot be moved." Can you move the earth? Note: It says, it cannot be moved, not that it can't move.

For the other verses concerning the Earth. You must remember that the Bible has two earths. The old earth and the new earth. Earth will remain forever but the old one will disappear for the new creation.

As for the numeral miscalculations you suggest, I would like to say that many skeptists have pointed out things like that have been disproved.

Concerning Ahaziah. http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2 Chronicles 22:2;&version=31 ; 2 Chronicles 22:2 and 2 Kings 8:26 say he was 22. Although it seems there were a few problems with translating the text (Hebrew numbers can be so confusing). Historians conclude that 99.9% of current translations are in agreement with the existing documents. Man's translations are fallible I admit but how does that deny the accuracy of the originals? Are you trying to propose that the Bible was twisted so that it is not moral nor historical? Thankfully historal evidence, prophecies, and the other scripts show that the Bible is reliable and not corrupted. Where are these Islamic proofs for the corruption of the Bible?

You seem to fail to see something. You try to criticize a book composed of 66 books. You yourself only have 1 book. Do you not see the irony? You say this is the Word of Allah, yet no prophet ever hailed, "The greatest of prophets." If they hailed Jesus Christ whom your religion does not consider equal to Muhammed, how is that logical? Might I remind that Muhammed himself was definately exposed to Jews and a very high chance some Christians as well? The Qu'ran is based off of Revelations of a single man.

Why do you say the Bible contradicts science? All I've seen you do is pull out poetic verses and try to disprove them with science. Literary techniques apparently are sometimes being put to literal when they are not meant to be.

Now please, I have a few posts about the prophecies of Christ and his influence, please do take the time to respond to them.

Did you know that Noah's Ark's Dimensions fit with scientific dimensions? Scientists claim that the dimensions were suited to accomodate such a task!

Jonah 2:5-6 says there are mountains underwater, only in the last century have we discovered this fact.

Genesis 3:19 says that man was formed from the ground. The 28 base and trace elements that comprise the human body which are found from the ground.

Ecclesiastes 3:14-15 supports the First Law of Thermodynamics which is the conservation of mass and energy stating that nothing can be added or taken from matter and energy.

Hydrology is supported by Isaiah in verse 10, chapter 55 when he says,

"As the rain and the snow
come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
without watering the earth"

And Ecclesiastes 1:6-7 supports it as well.

1 Corinthians 15:41says that each star is different. Scientists have only discovered that no two stars are the same recently.

Geology says that the earth is perfectly balanced with its mountains, oceans, and other features. Isaiah, 700+ BC said,

"Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand,
or with the breadth of his hand marked off the heavens?
Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket,
or weighed the mountains on the scales
and the hills in a balance?"

Now, one of the 'scientic proof' you stated delt with the "Big Bang."

1. That isn't proven, that is a scientific theory that is plausible and thus far is not a fact. Yes, I know what a scientific theory is so please don't tell me how scientific theories have not been disproven.

2. The verses I stated above delt with laws and facts. Not theories.

3. The Big Bang leads to evolution. Wow, can't you see if you support the Big Bang then that means Allah cannot exist? The Big Bang suggests the universe creating itself, Allah is a creator, therefore both cannot exist, it contradicting. Is that not the Qu'ran being contradicted by a scientific theory it supports?

Finally, there is much more I want to say but sadly I have not the time. Science and apologetics are great, but Christianity have touched the most savage barbarians and people and created love among them. I, myself say that I have found peace in Christ, and have a personal relationship with God.

May the Lord Jesus Christ Bless You All.
