Had a little debate about Islam with a Muslims today. It came to a point where I presented the Qurans & Hadith saying’s on earth is flat (Q 19:6, 79:30, 18:7, and 21:30, H pp. 270-271). I even presented him with the clip on the Iraqi man on TV trying to convince the world that earth is flat. He did not believe me, and kept denying, later on he said that this verse has been misinterpreted.
WTF?!! Misinterpreted? These are Islamic scholar (al-Baydawi, Zamakhshari) who translated the Quran for all muslims.
That’s not what blew me away. he presented me a verse calming earth shape is like an egg.
i’m sorry WHAT?? First Quran says the earth is flat and now its shaped like an egg? AN EGG? ….I told him how this contradicts the verses saying that earth is flat, and like all Muslims do he said that the one saying earth was flat has been misinterpreted.
(here’s the best part i tired to find this verse on my own i refered to http://quran.com/79 which said
79:30 “And after that He spread the earth.”
or http://en.knowquran.org/koran/79/ which said
79:30 “And the earth, He expanded it after that”
these 2 sites have the verse 79:30 saying different things, nothing about the earth being shaped of an egg)
I though ok I’ll play along, and told him that earth is not in a shape of an egg, than he said it was an ostrich egg.
At this time there was another “infidel” who was also puzzled about this new verse claiming earth was egg shaped. And he pointed out that there is no mention of an ostrich egg in the verse. Which is very true, there was nothing about that in this verse; it was just saying that earths shape is of an egg.
At this point the egg has got the species revealed, which is not in the Quran, but in the mind of the Muslim, Muslims lie just as Quran asks them to. To defend Islam, to promote Islam and to deceive the infidels. The best part is, this Muslims have no idea what Islam is, and what the Quran says. He is just like the billion Muslims who take Islam at face value, and know just enough to make you believe it’s the true religion.
From earth is flat to earth’s shaped like an egg. – the Quran
From an egg to and ostrich egg – the Muslim
Earth’s shape should be an oblate spheroid – the truth
