Before questioning my ability in understanding Arabic, you need to realize the difference between learning Arabic as a secondary language and growing up reading, writing and speaking it.

You seem to have extremely poor resourses to compare the glorious Quraan to other books that were written by humans. Allah challenged the INSE and the GINN together ( Humans and Angels) to create a text that is close to the Quraan, this challenge is still valid to this day and time, so, go ahead, if you think the Quraanic literature is poor, come up with something quite as poor, better yet, have a group of writers from the East, West, North and South give you a hand, and once you're done contact me and show me what you've come up with. you have a lot of time, you have probably until you perish to finish such task. I'm in no hurry, but you may find out that I could very well die before you finish that task.

And this challenge goes to everybody who may have your twisted ideas about our most glorious book ever. And one last note; if people spend 4 years in college to get a degree in one of the sciences of Quraan, as poorly edited as you think, how many more years would they need to spend if the Quraan, in your opinion was O'K edited?
