Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict XVI and the Koran

Submitted by Raqib Ahmed Asif (Bangladesh), Nov 1, 2006 at 12:00

Vatican Church, believed that earth is the center of the universe and moon, sun and all other heavenly objects moves around the earth. This astrological philoshophy established by the Church was finally proved wrong when Copernicus proved that earth in not the center of the universe and all heavenly bodies moves around the Sun, making Sun the center of the Solar system.

However,the same astrological idea of Copernicus was written in The Holy Koran around 800 years before Copernicus proposed his idea to Vatican. It is not permitted. To the Sun to catch up The Moon, nor can The Night outstrip the Day; Each (just) swims along In (its own) orbit (According to the law). The Holy Qur'an, Chapter no. 36, verse 40. Truly, The Holy Qur'an is the words of Allah (God). As Pope Benedict said, "something dropped out of Heaven, which cannot be adapted or applied".
