Quran's Flat Earth Part 167
Modern Muhammadan scholars tell the world that the Quran KNEW about the seven spherical layers of the earth 1400 years ago. Is this true?
Both bible and koran refer to a flat Earth; bible says 'round', koran says 'flat'. NEITHER refers to a SPHERE.
'Round' does NOT mean spherical! A disc is not a sphere.
In a 2000 Fatwa titled “The Transmitted and Sensory Proofs of the Rotation of the Sun and Stillness of the Earth”, Saudi Arabian Grand Mufti Sheikh Ibn Baaz asserted that the earth was flat and disk-like and that the sun revolved around it. He had insisted that satellite images to the contrary were nothing but a Western conspiracy against the Islamic world.Source: Al-Ahram Weekly Issue 477, 13-19 April, 2000.
But ONE example of the wilful refusal to accept the obvious that all believing muslims must practice as part of their "Faith". Video of Earth from space CLEARLY shows a rotating sphere [oblate or flattened sphere, more accurately].
Still they deny.
