I love how you pull bullshit statistics out of your arse all the time without any way of backing them up because - in actual fact - most Scientists are either Atheist (due to the fact their science contradicts most religous belief) or are the religion they were brought up as from birth.Ever wondered why so many scientists are converting to Islam?
I'm doing Chemistry at University right now and - guess what - we don't have a single Islamic lecturer. Hell, I think there are about two Christians and that is it out of a faculty of around a hundred Chemists. Go figure, right?
Your right, how could such knowledge have been known back then? If such knowledge was known back then then perhaps the people of the time would have EMPLOYED IT as a method of catching criminals. Since they didn't (the technology to track fingerprints is hardly high-tech on a basic level - easily within the grasp of a Roman society) I can safely assume that you are lying through your teeth and that - like most things - people are taking a vague mumbling in the book as meaning something more.It predicted things like using fingerprints to indentiy people, and how each person has a unique fingerprint. How culd such knowledge have been known back then?
It's amazing what people assume is meant just by looking at a few ambiguous sentences. If you looked at them without any prior knowledge of the world there is no way you would make the link between Fingerprints and the Quran. The only reason such a link exists is the same reason that poetry still exists - a good writer writes vague enough that their words can be applied to more than one subject.
Yes, that explains why many Physicists were hunted down in both Christian and Muslim societies for "blasphemy". In fact, it also explains why Eastern socieites are so accepting of viewpoints outside of their own belief system. Oh, wait, no, that's wrong, different viewpoints are not accepted. If I tried to teach Evolution to people in most Middle-Eastern states I would probably loose several limbs swiftly followed by my head.The Qur'an talks about the universe and the stars, in great detail, another miracle that could not have been known in those times.
Give up the ghost - religion is for people who are too weak to accept the truths of the Universe. They want to believe in religion because it gives them the strength to move on in life...
Answer this - what would you expect people to say to a 15 year old boy who still believed in Santa Clause? Then you'll know how I feel about 15 year old boys who still believe in God.
