The reason why i use race is not because of color again you add out of context. Thats the main reason for havic around the world from all faiths. When i say race or use it i simpy reffering to the human race. We ae all the same if you like it or not color ha nothing to do with it. I can't but notice how you keep pointing out evil and corupt this of so called muslim which many have truth to them especially during war. but you try to pull issues from the koran to justify your comments. Why is it you seem not to find also the great and good things of muslims?

You talk about christians discover this and that and how i benefit from it. TRUE...but know this the Qur'an and its miracle along with muslims created many,manys things that the world use today and if not for muslims this plant will still be in the stone ages. examples:

(1) the scientific of the Qur'an speak about the bigbang theory

The Qur'an is in full agreement with the findings of contemporary science. The conclusion that astrophysics has reached today is that the entire universe, together with the dimensions of matter and time, came into existence as a result of a great explosion that occurred in no time. This event, known as "The Big Bang" proved that the universe was created from nothingness as the result of the explosion of a single point. Modern scientific circles are in agreement that the Big Bang is the only rational and provable explanation of the beginning of the universe and of how the universe came into being.

Before the Big Bang, there was no such thing as matter. From a condition of non-existence in which neither matter, nor energy, nor even time existed, and which can only be described metaphysically, matter, energy, and time were all created. This fact, only recently discovered by modern physics, was announced to us in the Qur'an 1,400 years ago.

The sensitive sensors on board the COBE space satellite which was launched by NASA in 1992, captured evidentiary remnants of the Big Bang. This discovery served as evidence for the Big Bang, which is the scientific explanation of the fact that the universe was created from nothing.

The Qur'an speaks of the layers of the atmosphere and in refcnts times we of these layers as.

1. Troposphere
2. Stratosphere
3. Ozonosphere
4. Mesosphere
5. Thermosphere
6. Ionosphere
7. Exosphere

The functions of th mountains

It is a great miracle that these facts, which could not possibly be discovered without the technology of the 20th century, were explicitly stated by the Qur'an 1,400 years ago

The Qur'an draws attention to a very important geological function of mountains."We placed firmly embedded mountains on the earth, so it would not move under them…"
(The Qur'an, 21:31) As we have noticed, it is stated in the verse that mountains have the function of preventing shocks in the Earth.

This fact was not known by anyone at the time the Qur'an was revealed. It was in fact brought to light only recently as a result of the findings of modern geology in the 20th century.

According to these findings, mountains emerge as a result of the movements and collisions of massive plates forming the Earth's crust. When two plates collide, the stronger one slides under the other, the one on the top bends and forms heights and mountains. The layer beneath proceeds under the ground and makes a deep extension downward. That means that mountains have a portion stretching downwards, as large as their visible parts on the Earth.

I can go on and on the ocean,rain water,clouds,moon,iron,creation of paris,the creation of the fetus,the brian cortex etc. plus the muslims are known of their art of circluar geometry which is used world wide for maps.gps and direction just imagine in a world without knowledge of these. The fact is that all culture and race and faith contributed to the sucess of humans life through inventions religions and cultures. Without each other we will have nothing.
