Why does Quran have obsolete ayas?

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: Bottom line of Nuray's argumentation

Dear Nuray: It is a muslim myth that there is science in quran. There is none. No muslim has ever invented anything based on quranic science.Muslims heirarchy loves to make up things from ambiuities of Quran.Bucaille , a physician to Saudi king made millions by witing a book about science in quran and laughed all way to the bank without ever converting..
Quran continuously says Jesus believed in Allah and he preached islam.There is no proof of that whatsoever. Read the following verses of quran which makes it very clear.
YUSUFALI: When Jesus found Unbelief on their part He said: "Who will be My helpers to (the work of) Allah?" Said the disciples: "We are Allah's helpers: We believe in Allah, and do thou bear witness that we are Muslims.
YUSUFALI: "And behold! I inspired the disciples to have faith in Me and Mine Messenger: they said, 'We have faith, and do thou bear witness that we bow to Allah as Muslims'".

In your responses you deny believing in all hadiths and say all your knowledge is from quran, yet very conveniently you refer to arabs killing their daughters and declaring some ayas from the period when islam was being established and not applicable now (response to Mohammed). How do you know that ?Quran does not give that info. The fact remains that without hadith and history , you do not even know how ,when , and by whom, the Quran was compiled. Why do muslims say quran is for all time and all people ? Why are obsolete useless ayas kept in quran?

Why would the all powerful almighty , creator of the amazing universe which operates with such precission , send the most important message for all times and all people in such a crude way in bits and pieces through an angel who flew repeatedly to an illiterate man living in backwaters of civilization and delivered verbally. The illiterate man remembers and repeats those messages to his scribes who then wrote on leaves, bones, wood etc. The illiterate man then dies off without even putting all those messages together creating controversies,misinterpretations and hundreds of sects of believers permanently.

Nuray, using your imagination and broad generalization you can fit any scientific theory into even senseless rants...
