The Earth revolves according to the Quran?
It is not for the sun to overtake the moon, nor does the night outstrip the day.They all revolve, each in an heavenly path. [36:40]
Accordingly, the Night and the Day would also have each an DISTINCT trajectory.
Immediatly, we think that this is a mere observation made by ancient people, that night/day revolve around the Earth:
However, this doesn't seem consistent with the verse, because, in this interpretation, their path is the same.
But if one interpret the verse with our current science:
Night and Day are respectively the darkened and lightened part of the Earth. So, as the Earth revolves around the Sun, night and day revolve also around the Sun.
This time, we can notice that Night and Day each have a DISTINCT path, which is more compatible with the verse.
THUS, since the 1st interpretation is incompatible with the verse whereas the 2nd one is, does the verse means (by night and day) nothing but that the Earth revolves?
