Proof Is In The Quran: Sun Rotates Around The Earth
Al-Fawzan's proof for his claim that the sun revolved around the Earth is none other than the Koran. The interview aired on Saudi Channel 1 and was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI). In the interview, the host asks Al-Fawzan, "Allah says in a Koranic verse: 'And the sun runs towards its stopping point. That is the determination of the All-Powerful, the All-Knowing.' Does the sun revolve around the earth?" Saleh Al-Fawzan replies by saying, "There is no doubt about it. The Koran says: 'The sun runs…' Nevertheless, they say that the sun stands in place and the Earth moves. This contradicts the Koran." (Source)
For crying out loud, even 16th century science is wrong! It's Koran versus Kepler and taqqiya versus Tycho.

Now if 'Allie' is the Cylon Vagina rock, then I doubt it told Mohamhead anything.

Here's a good response that should keep them busy for many years of self doubt: If the Bible is literally true, then why do we have the intelligence to conduct controlled experiments that prove it wrong? If we deny that intelligence, are we not denying God's creation of Humanity?
Quite simply, the Bible can not be literally true. There are nouns and verbs in the Hebrew Bible whose exact meaning is no longer known. These words appear only once, so we do not have any comparative context in which to know their meaning. There are idioms or figures of speech whose meanings are lost in antiquity.
For example, it DOES NOT say "An Eye For an Eye" in the Hebrew Bible. It literally says "An Eye Beneath an Eye" (the KJV got it wrong --I know, that's heresy; but those who know Hebrew will confirm this) This idiom is the subject of much discussion by Jewish Scholars. They take this to mean the value of an eye for an eye and they used it as a foundation for modern Tort Law. It is but one example of an idiom whose meaning is not entirely certain.
Thus, the notion of fundamentalist interpretations of the Bible is nonsense. We MUST interpret it if only because language itself is not timeless or perfect.
That said, most Muslims have yet to figure out that their language is no different. They too must interpret the Koran, Hadith, and Sunah. But as they have no such tradition of scholarship without some warlord chopping heads off, why they'll continue this way for too many more generations until they too learn this basic tenet of civilization.
And so it is that we have some idiot professing that the sun rotates around the Earth. I guess this is why there is another Fatwa telling Muslims not to go to Mars. Frankly, if they're going to be this narrow minded, I don't see why they're worth the trouble to send them.

To touch it will send a muslim to hell and its much harder to blow up than a solid wall and its cheapness means it can be built in depth.
I just want the civilized world to be ready when the time comes.
