<quoted text> Professor Alfred Kroner is one of the world's well-known geologists. He is a Professor of the Department of Geosciences, University of Mainz, Mainz, Germany. He said, "Thinking where Muhammad came from .. I think it is almost impossible that he could have known about things like the common origin of the universe, because scientists have only found out within the last few years with very complicated and advance technological methods that this is the case." (From 'This is the Truth'[video]). Also he said, "Somebody who did not know something about nuclear physics fourteen hundred years ago could not, I think, be in a position to find out from his own mind, for instance, that the earth and the heavens had the same origin." http://www.scienceislam.com/quran_miracles.ph...
Thanks Khan. I have always enjoyed reading your posts. It will be hard for the White Americans to believe that many Muslim scientists, engineers and doctors are proudly serving in the United States of America.
<quoted text> Obviously you have not read any biographies of Prophet Muhammad -- who he was, his missions, and his accompolishments. I recommend you to read Michael A. Hart's: A Ranking of the 100 Most Influential Persons in History, where he roughly says that his choice of Prophet Muhammad as the foremost person to top the list might be argued and even rejected by some, but he defended it by saying "He is the only person in history who is supremely successful at both secular and religious levels". The Age of Enlightenment really started in the Muslim world well before it spread into Europe as your celebrated Renaissance, which I as a Muslim partake to celebrate pride and glory. The amazing discoveries and inventions by Muslim scholars in the field of mathematics, algebra, trigonometry,metallurgy, astronomy,chemistry, biology, navigation, to name a few, speak volumes of their intellectual genius well before the seat of learning shifted to Europe. Muslims have every reason to feel envious of the intellectual and technological progress of the West today, but please DO NOT sink in your ignorance to deny that it was the Muslim Arab scholars who preserved, expanded and transmitted knowledge from Cordova and Andalucia (of Spain today) to the rest of Europe. The intellectual malaise affecting the Muslim world then (remember the vast Ottoman Empire?)and now is pretty much their internal problem, inasmuch as the onslaught of Western colonialism (Portuguese, Dutch, British, French,Germans included)which caused the downfall of great centers of Muslim learning and civilizations. Even the mighty Roman Empire had its glory and downfall, as do Muslim empires. Do you get it? Let us be more rational in presenting our views. Peace to you man. I can't heap scorn and abuse at anybody who is honestly ignorant or ignorantly honest!
yes yes go on , you missed many things that could be ascribed to cave religion. BTW malaysia was hindu and all inhabitants were forcibly converted , temples were raged , list is infinite but one thing I agree upon Islam is a religion of peace
