To Muslim and Raqib about scientific miracles in the Koran

So what happened to "science" in the Koran? The claims seem to have stopped all of a sudden.

As to Muslim, an Arabic speaker, agreeing with Raqib about 'expanding space' it only goes to prove the opaqueness or unintelligibility of the Koran which repeatedly claims to be a clear book. If 9 out of ten translators (refer to Lactantius comment), who are also admitedly scholars in Arabic and the Koran did not give the meaning that Raqib and Muslim read into it then God also seems to be in the business of misleading translators of the 'book preserved in heaven'.
