I understand that as a Muslim you are not required to respond with proof or real information to Infidel questions or statements and of course Muslims are never wrong. And that is why, when you responded to my comment, you made some assertions, but of course provided no proof. Therefore should you allow yourself to condescend to my level and respond, please tell me how the earth can be a circle and not a sphere? Secondly, how do you explain Aya 18:86, the Blessed Qur'an translated by J.M. Rodwell.

Blessed Qur'an: Aya 18:86 Until when he reached the setting of the sun, he found it to set in a miry fount; and hard by he found a people.

And now from copy of Holy Qur'an from Internet:

Aya 18:86 Until, when he reached the setting of the sun, he found it set in a spring of murky water: Near it he found a People: We said: "O Zul-qarnain! (thou hast authority,) either to punish them, or to treat them with kindness."

Please read the above AYA's and THINK! THINK HARD! and then kindly explain to this Infidel why he is wrong!
