Muslim scientist says world is flat and sun revolves around the earth!

    Muslim scientist says world is flat and sun revolves around the earth, basically because Quran says so...

    So much for the Quran being "perfect".

    Any scientist that says his smart because of his beliefs is not a scientist . The sad things is that in the last 10 years a lot of idiots became scientists even thou they barely know how to think .

    I didn't find any specific sentence in Quran related to Earth is flat or round. Quran isn't a scientific book I think but in Islam world we had scientists who knew it quite well as "Abu Rayhan Biruni"

    well may be he dreamed of such a verse in Quran and wanted others to believe it
    Now, my first and last question is - Who called him a scientist ? Was it the tv channel or he tagged it on by himself ?

    You seem to be a very knowledgeable person. Are you a scientist by chance ?

    This has been proven many times. The world is actually flat. I had a friend who went boating once and never came back. The detectives told me that "He fell off the face of the Earth".

    I'm a scientist and I can prove that earth is cubic and I'm a bitheist. And I know that because in my religion's bible - Bitheism for dummies - it says earth is cubic, so be it...

    @thread starter without knwng the total fcts dont show off ur intlgnc
    1. Earth made as a carpet
    The question refers to a
    verse from the Quran in
    Surah Nuh:
    “And Allah has made the
    earth for you as a carpet
    (spread out).” [Al-Quran
    71:19]
    But the sentence in the
    above verse is not complete.
    It continues in the next
    verse, explaining the
    previous verse. It says:
    “That ye may go about
    therein, in spacious
    roads.” [Al-Quran 71:20]
    A similar message is
    repeated in Surah TaHa:
    “He Who has made for you
    the earth like a carpet spread
    out; has enabled you to go
    about therein by roads (and
    channels)....” [Al-Quran
    20:53]
    The surface of the earth i.e.
    earth’s crust is less than 30
    miles in thickness and is
    very thin as compared to
    the radius of the earth
    which is about 3750 miles.
    The deeper layers of the
    earth are very hot, fluid and
    hostile to any form of life.
    The earth’s crust is a
    solidified shell on which we
    can live. The Quran rightly
    refers to it like a carpet
    spread out, so that we can
    travel along its roads and
    paths.
    2. Carpet can also be
    spread on other than an
    absolute flat surface
    Not a single verse of the
    Quran says that the earth is
    flat. The Quran only
    compares the earth’s crust
    with a carpet. Some people
    seem to think that carpet
    can only be put on an
    absolute flat surface. It is
    possible to spread a carpet
    on a large sphere such as
    the earth. It can easily be
    demonstrated by taking a
    huge model of the earth’s
    globe covering it with a
    carpet.
    Carpet is generally put on a
    surface, which is not very
    comfortable to walk on. The
    Quran describes the earth
    crust as a carpet, without
    which human beings would
    not be able to survive
    because of the hot, fluid
    and hostile environment
    beneath it. The Quran is
    thus not only logical, it is
    mentioning a scientific fact
    that was discovered by
    geologists centuries later.
    3. Earth has been spread
    out
    Similarly, the Quran says in
    several verses that the earth
    has been spread out. “And
    We have spread out the
    (spacious) earth: how
    excellently We do spread
    out!” [Al-Quran 51:48]
    Similarly the Quran also
    mentions in several other
    verses that the earth is an
    expanse: “Have We not
    made the earth as a wide
    expanse “And the
    mountains as pegs?” [Al-
    Quran 78:6-7]
    None of these verses of the
    Quran contain even the
    slightest implication that the
    earth is flat. It only indicates
    that the earth is spacious
    and the reason for this
    spaciousness of the earth is
    mentioned. The Glorious
    Quran says: “O My servants
    who believe! Truly spacious
    is My Earth: therefore serve
    ye Me . (And Me
    alone)!” [Al-Quran 29:56]
    Therefore none can give the
    excuse, that he could not
    do good and was forced to
    do evil because of the
    surroundings and
    circumstances.
    4. Earth is geo-spherical
    in shape
    The Quran mentions the
    actual shape of the earth in
    the following verse: “And
    we have made the earth egg
    shaped”. [Al-Quran 79:30]
    The Arabic word Dahaha
    means egg shaped. It also
    means an expanse. Dahaha
    is derived from Duhiya
    which specifically refers to
    the egg of an ostrich which
    is geo-spherical in shape,
    exactly like the shape of the
    earth.
    Thus the Quran and
    modern established science
    are in perfect harmony.

    Because they're following one of the most corrupted religions of the last 100 years. It's not a religion any more, more of a criminal organisation.

    You could have saved a heck of a lot of time and space here on the forums by simply saying:

    "Islam"

    That kinda encompasses it all.

    Just can't stop laughing after seeing the video . Is that old person from present world or from 1500 ac....... still he got doubt over earth being round. May be that old scientist got some memory problem.
    In the age where we are getting photos of earth from space (which loudly saying earth being a round shape with lil flat on top and bottom) he's asking this stupid question and eventually trying to prove it also.

    ahhahahhahahahhahahha..... please consult some doctor to that man.
