After having had a good look at it

in response to reader comment: If you were in my shoes

The last ten years or so, I had a few good occasions to discuss and research claims of scientific discoveries confirming the affirmations of the Koran and other "numerical miracles". Not one did hold water after a thorough examination and many were just plain tricks. I thus imagine that if you're anyhow sincere, you never took the time to control them. So if you believe in them, please check it out, yourself. And you'll then understand why it was non-Muslims who brought the bulk of scientific progress, in a way that makes it serviceable. Or why the actual scientific progress brought by Muslims was not based on the study of the Koran. Get real. After all is said and done, if all you want is to believe in God, almighty etc. you'll always be able to do so.
