Moon Spliting in Islam?
[NOTE: I am a new agnostic here. Please cut me some slack if I make any mistakes such as posting in the wrong forums. ]
Recently I discovered the Muslims believe their prophet, Muhhamed, split the moon in half as a miracle. I instantly thought I should debunk this, so I did some Googling around and found that it almost certainly never was split, that if it was split that we would all freeze to death, etc.
I came across this: http://www.islamic-life.com/forums/anti-islamic-refutations/nasa-moon-split-795
In it I discovered a post by a user who was Muslim that stated:
"In 2002 during the Islamic month of Ramadan on CNN, Americas number one news station, there was a panel composed of four people. 1) Jew 2) Christian 3) Muslim 4) NASA representative. On such month it was discovered by NASA that the MOON seemed as though it was two pieces and it was suggested that if it was so that man could have not done it but God Himself. The question was posed to all members if there was anything in their scripture to support the idea that the MOON could have been two pieces. No one but the Muslim was able to give an account on the matter. So, whoever does not accept the idea that The Moon was two pieces once does not accept CNN, NASA, or even GOD."
Deep down, I KNOW there must be a rational explanation to this.
I appreciate everyone's help in advance!
