Title: Flat Earth and the Qur'an
Post by: Pete Svarrior on December 24, 2013, 01:30:39 PM
An interesting resource outlining the verses of the Koran implying that the Earth is flat. Written from an obviously RET-biased perspective, but what else can we expect, really?

This is not Quran, n the writing is not Arabic. Could be Persian or other language Urdu or something else. But definitely not Arabic, n not Quran.

Yes, as clearly labelled in the WikiIslam source, this is Taken from Zekeriya Kazvinî's "Acaib-ül Mahlûkat" (The Wonders of Creation). Translated into Turkish from Arabic. Istanbul: ca. 1553.
This map depicts "a traditional Islamic projection of the world as a flat disk surrounded by the sundering seas which are restrained by the encircling mountains of Qaf".'

Do your attempts at figuring out the (well-documented) ideas of syntax and semantics in propositional logic have anything to do with references to the Flat Earth in the Qur'an?

Can we please have a split?

Going to clean the thread up a bit more, but it has been split and moved here:  https://forum.tfes.org/index.php?topic=8400.0

I am not sure if it is appropriate for FED, but I will let the discussion/debate continue there for now.


EDIT: My apologies, I should have seen this in FEIR and split it months ago.
