My blog posts on religion have attracted a lot of controversy. Religious people are annoyed by my claim that belief in God will go the way of horse transportation, and for much the same reason, specifically an improved standard of living.

MUQ has no response to my answer.Maybe,Islam doesn't have answer to the question how Cain could procreate without a legitimate female partner.

What are negative numbers? When were they "invented"? What about "Imaginary numbers"? Do they also exist?
Trying to bluff your way out?
Numbers are not "invented", they exist as concepts. They have always existed. Just think of accounting if there were no negative numbers. If you spend more money than you have, without negative numbers, you could never have a deficit, as the lowest you could go is zero. There would be no way to express the concept of a deficit without negative numbers. You could not express temperatures below zero without negative numbers. This could only work if you used a temperature scale that started at absolute zero (only the Kelvin and Rankine scales do. absolute zero is -273.15 Celsius, a negative number.)

Your ignorance is deplorable, but the logical result of a mind locked into rote learning of precepts from the dark ages.

What is this Babbling about Cain and "legitimate" female partner?

From where you got the genealogy of Cain? I did not see it mentioned anywhere in Quran and sayings of prophet.

Ans.

01. The idea of Debt or Profit did exist before any numbering system was started.

But when the numbering system was started, it started with Zero. There was no number before Zero.

The same goes with “imaginary numbers”…. They do not “exist” but are used in scientific equations.

It is not my ignorance, but the way you are taking it literally.

02. The argument was “Who Created God” and I said that God is the ONLY Creator in this Universe and every thing else is Created, so the question “who created God” is illogical and unreasonable.

Instead of answering the main question and argument, you are trying to drag the conversation to another direction.

This is the technique which “learned people” like you always employ, so that people forget the main question.

Wrong.
Human counting probably started with 1, not zero.
But numbers, whether positive, negative, zero, imaginary, irrational, transcendental, etc, already existed.

What is the problem with Adam' Grandchildren? There fathers and mothers were children of Adam.

That marriage between brothers and sisters was allowed temporarily so that human race could spread and multiply.

Once that was achieved, it was banned.

What and where is your problem?

It was ZERO that revolutionized the Counting systems.

If we go by your logic, then all the Modern Physics, Chemistry, Airplanes, Rocket and Missile and Space Ships, did exist before they were “discovered” by humans!!

If you accept it, then what we are arguing?

Then why later your Allah prohibited incest with siblings when he had no problem with Cain's intimacy with his sister(s)?If he had thought incest is wrong inherently then he should have created another pair like Adam and Eve so their progeny could have married with Eve's children.But he didn't according to Islamic myth.So why all of a sudden he thought it to be wrong?

What are you trying to say, I am unable to understand.

You are confused and trying to confuse others.

You are raising issues that have nothing to do with what is our subject of discussion.

So numbers never started with zero.

When "humans" started numbering system, they started it with Zero, the "beginning" of number system.

No one "knew" imaginary numbers at that time.

I do not know what you are driving it.

All the laws of Physics, Chemistry and all other branches of science were "created" at the time of Creation of world. No human was consulted or did in making of these laws.
Humans only "discovered" these laws while experimenting and observing the nature. Like some one "discovering" ores hidden in the belly of earth. Who deposited it there and in what quantity?

I do not know, what game you are playing, just using verbal jugglery
