Proof Is In The Quran: Sun Rotates Around The Earth

More warped thinking by the brainwashed. Muslims believe the Quran is the unalterable and literal word of Allah himself. Therefore, it can never be incorrect. Which means modern science is wrong:

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)

1 "Modern science is wrong...."

For crying out loud, even 16th century science is wrong! It's Koran versus Kepler and taqqiya versus Tycho.

2 I have the same issue with my Christian brethren and Evolution. I am repeatedly told that I MUST believe in a literal 7 day instantaneous creation or I am not a good believer. Now, they are not quite as close minded about these things as the Mooslims, but it isn't far off if you look at it openly. The problem with the one is that they really don't understand what science says about Evolution and Old Earth and are easily lead by the young-Earth charlatans running around to churches and preaching ignorance. The problem with the other is that they don't CARE what science says if it contradicts their sacred texts.

3 they screw their sisters and first cousins, what kind of higher mental powers do you expect?

4 Actually the sun is busy trucking along at a good clip on it's orbit also.
Now if 'Allie' is the Cylon Vagina rock, then I doubt it told Mohamhead anything.

5 @FrustratedTeacher: Fundamentalists who interpret the Bible literally are famous for making all sorts of gaffs like this.

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.

6 The person who edited this video is biased!!!! Muslims do NOT believe that the Sun revolves around the earth but believe that the Sun rotates around its axis. The verse states "And the Sun runs to its resting place. That is the decree of the Almighty, the All-Knowing. And We have decreed set phases for the Moon, until it ends up looking like an old palm spathe. It is not for the Sun to overtake the Moon nor for the night to outstrip the day; each one is swimming in a sphere" (Surah Ya Sin, 38-40). Here the vest explains that the sun rotates which was information released to the people through the Quran in about the year 600 AD. This is proof of Islam actually because science today explains that the sun rotates around its axis and has a path ro follow.

7 Also, People who think that Islam is false, I respect you for having an opinion but please read the Quran and understand the actual religion through its early followers before coming up with this oppinion. Don't listen to fox news and what the people say but research Islam. Actions of the people do not define a religion, it is the text that does so. Thank You for reading this message!! :)

8 And read the Quran before jumping to conclusions.

9 When its time to wall the barbarians back inside their sand-cesspits, do you thing sprinklers spurting pig blood will be a cheap way to do it ?

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.
