To Raqib

Again you fail to engage with the contents of my previous postings. In them, I have responded to your unfounded claims about matters of key importance, the authority of the Bible, the massive and eloquent testimony given it by the Qur'an and Muhammad, your erroneous claims about the Council of Nicaea in AD325, your erroneous claims about the GOB ("Gospel of Barnabas"), and its demonstrable falsity, "the Scientific Miracle of the Qur'an," your erroneous claims for perfect transmission of the Qur'an, showing your claims it is "unmolested" to be baseless, age of the oldest Qur'anic text etc.

In my interactions with you Raqib, I critique Islamic from its most authoritative sources, and in response to your request to "Find a single verse in Qur'an which is unscientific," I responded with Surah 18:86 where the Qur'an teaches that the sun rests in a muddy spring, from where it then travels throughout the galaxy until it appears before Allah and returns back again! also quoting Bukhari's Sahi Hadith Volume 4, Number 421, which contains the scientific absurdity of Muhammad's belief that the sun sets in a muddy spring!!!

Please enlighten us with your comments on this absurdity Raqib, and if you really want more scientific absurdity in the Qur'an brought into the public square, let's see how the claims for "embryology in the Qur'an" line up with the real deal.

I repeat that it really is tiresome to keep going over the same old ground, when the falsity of your claims can be so readily demonstrated, and I ask again that you reread my previous postings, and deal with all the issues you have failed to deal with so far, before I move on and deal with any more of your objections/distractions. Thus far, I have sought to meet your objections fully, and ask that you attempt to meet mine similarly, before introducing further objections/accusations, do please reread my postings, and interact with their contents, if they contain errors of fact, or if I misquote/misrepresent the Islamic source documents and Muhammad, please point them out, and if wrong, I will gladly apologise and withdraw them, and then, but only then, can "the talk go on."

Jesus Christ is Lord, to the Glory of God The Father

With kind regards and Best wishes

Lactantius Jr.
