Quran & Science Part I - Expansion of The Universe & Noble Prize
Many of the ancient Greeks speculated as to whether the universe was expanding.
Much of the science type drivel in the Koran comes from Aristotle's mistaken view of the cosmos...
Aristotle offered five proofs for his geocentric system.
1. We have no feeling of motion.
2. What force could move the Earth?
3. We feel no constant wind from one direction.
4. There is no visible parallax of the stars.
5. People are at the centre of the universe.
"The earth, then, also, whether it move about the centre or as stationary at it, must necessarily move with two motions. But if this were so, there would have to be passings and turnings of the fixed stars [a Parallax]. Yet no such thing is observed. The same stars always rise and set in the same parts of the earth". (Aristotle, On the Heavens, Book II, Part 14).
It is observed widely within the scientific community that there are no miracles in the Quran.
Just childish paraphrasings of misunderstood Greek Science.
give me prove

Now, it is common knowledge that the Muslims were heavily influenced by the mistaken Aristotle - though Aristotle did talk much about ants and bees talking to each other and today we accept such things as true - so if the Koran includes such things as said by Aristotle then of course it will get some things right but only because Aristotle got them right.
These are not miracles you are sharing - they are not violations of the natural laws.
They are also not miracles because they are the sorts of everyday thinking and observation made by the Greeks.
you need more prove
i like that
here is it
THE BIRTH OF A HUMAN BEING
i think it known also by greek since they had microscope at that time
Lol, how so very backward, Kefah.
I have read Plato's entire works and much of Aristotles complete works. Here are just a few examples of where these ideas in Koran came from - they came from Aristotle - Search Aristotle's complete works for the word EMPRYO and see what comes up...
What we term an egg is a certain completed result of conception out of which the animal that is to be develops, and in such a way that in respect to its primitive germ it comes from part only of the egg, while the rest serves for food as the germ develops. A grub on the other hand is a thing out of which in its entirety the animal in its entirety develops, by differentiation and growth of the embryo. Of viviparous animals, some hatch eggs in their own interior, as creatures of the shark kind; others engender in their interior a live foetus, as man and the horse. When the result of conception is perfected, with some animals a living creature is brought forth, with others an egg is brought to light, with others a grub. Of the eggs, some have egg-shells and are of two different colours within, such as birds eggs; others are soft-skinned and of uniform colour, as the eggs of animals of the shark kind. Of the grubs, some are from the first capable of movement, others are motionless. However, with regard to these phenomena we shall speak precisely hereafter when we come to treat of Generation.
