Let Christian ID’ers join forces with their Moslem counterparts and prove BOTH the Bible and the Qur’an

by Neil Godfrey

In following up why there has been a sudden strange peak of hits on my post about Adam’s rib really being a penis bone I find that the post was linked in the course of a creationist or ID discussion. However, the focus was not on the usual Christian fundamentalists, but on a Moslem scientist having articles arguing that the failure of geneticists to resurrect dead cells or create life proves that the Qur’an (why don’t we spell it Koran anymore?) is inspired by God or Allah.

The first post, the one worth reading, is Genomics is All Wrong. At least here in the post and additionally in the comments one learns what the actual arguments of geneticists are.

The second post (and the one including a link to my Adam’s rib post) is less savory in its tone (Wahid is Back).

I wonder what Christian fundamentalists think of Moslem fundamentalists using much the same pseudo-scientific arguments to prove their respective holy books.

    … the Qur’an (why don’t we spell it Koran anymore?)

    “Quran or Koran?”

    I still spell it Koran. Why would anyone use ‘ mark in English anyway, even with a foreign word? How does Qur’an make it any more obvious that the an is a separate syllable than Koran does? Its just an annoying thing like when Spanish news casters insist on rolling their r’s on TV and pronouncing every Spanish name the Spanish way. Just more of the media rubbing it in our faces that they intend on destroying the English language.

      Don’t hold back. Tell us what you really think! :-)

      After I expressed my little pique I realized it was another sign I’m aging. The only constant in life is change. And the English language — all languages — have always been in flux and changing since Babel. Sure some of it is political, but there’s a lot of counter-establishment tossed into the fray as well. Each new word will eventually become another fossil in language history.
