Help needed - quran shenaningans
I'm in dialogue with a moslem on another board 'jihadwatchdotorg' who insists that the quran correctly provides for the Speed of Light calculation. I've offered Carrier's rebuttal and also that of Prof. Neumaier of the Inst. of Math Univ. Vienna but to no avail.
Here's the drivel:
A New Astronomical Quranic Method for The Determination Of The
Greatest Speed C
by Dr. Mansour Hassab-Elnaby
If anyone of the more eloquent and science savvy board members would care to equpm me with a laymans version of a rebuttal I will buy them a tasty beverage.
How can not believing in something that is backed up with no empirical evidence be less scientific than believing in something that not only has no empirical evidence but actually goes against the laws of the universe and in many cases actually contradicts itself? - Ricky Gervais
