    Hi all, I really appreciate participating in your forum and will start my posting with a new information discovered in the United States and would like to have your comments on the declared phenomenon.

    The Scientific Miracles

    I’m not a religious but astonished to know that Quran contains unbelievable scientific facts discovered just in the last century.

    This is really amazing.

    Astronomy!
    Mountains!
    Human Embryology!
    Oceans And Seas!
    The Movement Of Clouds!
    The Cerebrum!
    The Shape Of The Earth!
    The Expansion Of The Universe!
    The Sensory Characteristic Of The Skin!
    Formation Of Iron!
    The Lowest Part On The Face Of The Earth!
    The Sequence Of Day And Night!
    The Snow Age!
    New Diseases!
    Cnn Top Ten Discoveries Of 1998

    So amazing that somehow Islamic science and culture ground to a halt many centuries ago.
    As did the Greeks, the Romans and Chinese in different parts of history.

    Er, one of the websites mentioned that the Quran says god 'created man from an extract of clay'. Either I've been misinformed or I must have forgotten something because I don't remember that being mentioned in my science class.

    Maybe Muhammad was thinking of pottery and not embryology.

    Except folks like her.

    I'd recommend that you read her work, but the beacon of freedom, the American government, won't let you.

    That being said, this thread is shite.

    Wow.

    When Mel disses your thread, its time to plead with the mods to extirpate it in its entirety.

    PS - I'd say welcome to the Politics board but your first at bat was so poor, why bother.

    This is actually probably a pretty sincere, if silly, post. For whatever reason (and I could suggest a couple likely ones), Muslims around the world find a strange amount of comfort in propaganda like this. I used to similar examples from my students in Rabat all the time.

    A bit more comical is that they also love to recite the names of famous people who have converted to Islam, as if that alone is supposed to impress one into converting. You know, folks like: Ronald Reagan and Michael Jackson.

    There was also an oft repeated story about Jacques Cousteau that combined these two tendencies in a funny way.

    According to the tale, he tested some Koranic hypothesis about how the water in oceans doesn't mix. When he found that the Koran was correct, he converted on the spot.

    The stuff linked above is weaker than even the Nostradamus phophecies.

    I would like to know what extraordinary knowledge the Koran has to say about any scientific subject, not just vague generalities that could mean anything.

    I think that he must mean that the US government won't do him the favor of translating her works into Mellish, an obscure dialect that requires 2 superfluous phrases for every meaningful phrase in a sentence.

    Yeah, all religions have stuff that they should be justifiably proud of, but celebrating yesteryears' accomplishments is not a good way to toot your horn.

    You are right Islam becomes the fastest-growing religion in America and in the world
    http://www.geocities.com/Pentagon/3016/fastest.htm


    From what I've heard from different friends of mine who have converted to Islam, there are a few main reasons for most conversions.

    1. Islam is a religious lifestyle, not just a quick Sunday morning church visit and a label. Although some Christians do pray before each meal and spend much time with their Bible, etc.many don't in the USA. Islam is something that can't be shunted into a few spare hours. You pray five times a day. Your dress code is affected; even your food choices are explained in the Qur'an. Many converts like it because they feel actively involved and as if they are truly religious.

    2. For women, it is a big and welcome change from the "in your face" sexuality of western culture. Women are not required by the Qur'an to veil. They are required to dress modestly and it is *recommended* that they cover their hair. However, most do veil and some go farther with niquab (the face screen) or other traditional clothes. Women dressed like this consider themselves marked as religious women, not easy dates. They don't get hit on. No one gawks at their bodies. They are clearly off limits sexually and many that I personally know say it is liberating not to have to conform to western standards of sexy dress, makeup and spending so much time and money on appearance. You buy a five-dollar hijab, put your hair in a ponytail and cover, wear long skirt and a tunic shirt -you're set.

    3. Islam is also growing because many people are not satisfied with Christianity. They feel it is too liberal, too fluid and changes for the culture. Islam on the other hand is more rigid and does not as a whole allow much for modern changes and the whims of society. Many like it because they feel other religions have loose standards.

    sweet! so it's similar to the atkin's diet! I lost 50 lbs. on Atkins, I am so there.

    But can I pray just like 2 or 3 times a day? Or if 5 per day is required, can I do all 35 praying sessions on Sunday before the football match?

    And if Islam's not your bag, there's always the moonies or Scientology or Hare Krishna or Lyndon LaRouche

    Or my own preference, Leprechaunism. From my studies I have scientifically proven that the world was created in 8 days, i.e. 7 plus one for getting drunk on Guinness.

    Are you saying that women who don't dress modestly in your opinion ARE sexually available?

    You have much to learn.
    I honestly doubt that that is how they truly feel.
