>"He erected heaven and established the balance." [Ar-Rahman 55:7]

ROTFL Pakistani Arabic it is al-Rahman and let me see Allah is saying that he rafa3a al-sama' or he lifted the sky! Really? Well I have a few questions for you and you knew theye were coming:

1. So did he lift the sky with his left or his right hand?or did he use a crane?

2. And why did he lift the sky?

3. Oh let me guess so it would not coming down crashing on the earth that is flat? Or is it that the sky will come down crashing on your farash or little bed?

4. And did he lift the sky while sitting on his little 3arsh and not the one with the bidet?

5. And who was keeping an eye on the universe when he was busy lifting the sky?

So much for Allah's science

> "In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alternation of night and day, there are Signs for people with intelligence:

You think we should tell Allah that it is all about the earth rotating around the sun? And do you think we should tell him about never to listen to Ptolemy and his cosmology? and do you think that we should tell him about the arctic night and the arctic day and may he he fails in his insilakh (skining) of the arctic day?

>those who remember God, standing, sitting and lying on their sides, and reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth: 'Our Lord, You have not created this for nothing. Glory be to You! So safeguard us from the punishment of the Fire." [Al-i-'Imran 3:190-191]

Oh and the fact that the mountains are created like pegs so the sky does not come down crashing on your bed? So much for the science in the Qur'an
