Just another religious idiot believing ancient stupidities. Say, wasn't the Universe created in six days as well? Time to give up God and put your reason to work, people.

I adore this man! He is so deep in his religion and faith in Qur'an that he is unable to accept scientific facts.

in medieval ages they used to call ppl heretics and killed them for saying Earth is round or it's not the center of universe. That was christian church in Europe of course, they 'modernized' a bit at least in that way :P perhaps this guy should too

Glad to be an atheis, i believe what i see.
Science is the way to go, though everyone have rights to believe what they want.

That man is stupid, as 95%(?) of ppl who believe in something like a fairytale (religions).

My favorite sentence:

"anything that has no indication in the koran is false"

This guy is just so incredible dumb that he is just not ABLE to understand such things as science. The most shocking thing is that he is not the dumbest person on earth. In his country and in similar countries people are guided by men like this one, who tell them what is right and what is wrong. Since this guy believes that EVERYTHING in Koran is true, i doubt him understanding his own religion at all. It's useless to write about it, it will stay the way it is for decades.

Being religious myself I believe that the Bible is the ultimate truth... but I also know that just because it doesn't say something doesn't mean it doesn't exist. The Bible doesn't talk about the shape of the Earth at all. There's belief, and then there's ridiculousness.

Think again and try not to think youre christian.
Think that youre one with yourself and everything you believe is what you see and science can show you, not happening. x) Too much to ask from braindead ppl.

It amuses me when I find out that i've wasted my time watching a stupid video and read the nonsense acompanying it...
To me this kind of topic is a moral "no-no" and should be left to those who actualy know what they are talking about(its obvious that most if not all of you don't know what you are talking about)... allso read the rules about posting before u get banned :|
And to be on topic - it puzzles me how such a silly "debate" if it can be called that was allowed to be aired.

What that guy said about the Quran is completely wrong and i propose him to read the Quran again or better to ask someone to explain him. Because, I cannot understand where he found in Quran these informations. The second guy wasn't able to agree or denied these informations because he doesn't know the Quran too. This debate is really stupid.

I also believe in the Kjv Bible but, this guy has spiritual blinders on his eyes the earth is round its not that hard to believe even if we never have seen earth in outer space look at the moon and sun there both round why wouldn't the earth be round as well..The Bible actually teaches a spherical shape for the earth. In Isaiah 40:22 God is said to sit above “the circle of the earth” (the Hebrew word for circle can also mean a sphere). Also, in Luke 17:34–36 Christ's Second Coming is portrayed as occurring while some are asleep at night and others are working at daytime activities — which means a rotating earth with day and night at the same time.Everyone has there own point of view please be respectful.

This goes out to the 3 abrahamic religions - muslims, christians and jews. Do you think whilst you are smashing and blowing up each other to bits, and demanding special privilleges whilst you're at it, the rest of us could sort of... do you think the rest of us could have our PLANET BACK?

Even you normal, righteous, religious people, it's even your fault, because you provide the power base for all those religious leading nutcases like Bush and Al Quaeda, and without that powerbase they could have been safely locked up in mental facilities. But because of the bullshit that you believe in (i.e. some books that were written by some other nutcases a few centuries back), now we gotta endure these people.

While the debator is obviously a religious zealot (and, according to modern scientific understanding of planetary bodies, seemingly wrong), some of the argumentative posts here are ludicrous. The arguments against what he believes would be much stronger if (a) they were properly spelt; (b) properly punctuated; and, (c) demonstrated some knowledge of the Koran (Qur'an) to repudiate what he believes (realbone would benefit from this advice no end...).

Additionally, it's not that long ago that Western establishment disavowed certain tenets that are now held as being "gospel"...

Try reading this...

For Cheeseburger (Post 12)... There are Christians who believe and act the same way (see the link above).

For Chaimss (Post 13)...Sane...(not a believer myself though).

For Noobeater (Post 14)...And your qualifications on theology come from which internet university...?

As for mamlo7 (Post 15)... Could you say that again in a way some of us could understand what you mean?

I doubt if this guy even a muslim??

for almost 1500 years since the dawn of islam all muslims knows that earth is round as the holy Quran mentioned it clearly.

and if you asked any islamic scholar bout it, they'll tell u its oval not round which is scientifically more accurate than sayiny its round and thats what Quran said exactly.

am just wondering from where he got the copy of his holy Quran? I even doubt if he have one!!!!

I don't condemn that guy. Everybody believes only in their own rationalizations. Even our scientists rationalize in their own ways.

I worked with a woman from Somalia. 62 years old. Never learned to read or write. Couldn't think in terms of right and left, up and down. Couldn't draw a picture. And yet, Somali culture is beautiful. I blame the stubbornness of Islam for her being so unequipped to live in the USA, but I forgive the ordinary people who just want to live in devotion to their faith.
