  • Speech of ants
  • The solar system:

  • What Shape is the Earth in?
  • Who Invented the Flat Earth?
  • Does the Bible teach geocentricity?
  • The Bible and the Message from Space
  • Is the earth egg-shaped?
  • Long before Muhammad, ancient astronomy and coins clearly told that the earth is a globe.
  • The splitting of the Moon: [1], [2], [3] (Past or future event? Whatever it is, it is a miracle? ...)
  • The Speed Of Light in the Qur'an?
  • Astronomy sites:

  • Early Greek Astronomy
  • The Nine Planets
  • Views of the Solar System
  • Further Astronomy sites: [General], [Moon], [Moon]
  • Miscellaneous:

  • Did the Qur'an bring math and science to us?
  • Milind Saraph's collection of articles on Islam and Science
  • Further Islamic pages presenting the "Scientific Miracle of the Qur'an":
    [1], [2], [3], [4] [5], [6], [7], [8], ... (it is just too boring to write nearly the same title many times)

    Bible miracle pages: That Amazing Book!, Scientific Accuracies in the Bible, Biblical Forecasts of Scientific Discoveries, Scientific evidences of the Bible's inspiration, Superaccurate Prophecy, Numerical Miracles, and more ... sound very much like some of the scientific miracles Muslims publish about the Qur'an. Wouldn't you agree? Fact is, with enough energy we can always find some isolated "amazing facts", but does that mean the whole book is therefore accurate and of divine origin? We only ask that you treat Bible and Qur'an with the same standard of evaluation.

    Further links of interest:

  • Counterbalance Foundation (on science and faith issues)
  • Medieval Science

    An article about Galileo Galilei and the relationship between religion and science back then and today, and a statement from Catholic perspective on the issue of Galileo Galilei, and more: 1, 2.

    Walid also has a good number of science issues in the latter part of his book Dear Muslim, let me tell you why I believed.

    Much of the controversy between Christians and Atheists on Faith and Science might be very interesting to Muslims too, as it basically is a controversy between Atheism and Theism and the Christian answers in regard to it are mostly arguments for the existence of God and showing where atheistic arguments in regard to science go wrong. The next question after establishing that Science and God are not in conflict is to answer then "Which God and how can we know about HIM?". This then is a point where Christians and Muslims will obviously diverge, but in much of the first discussion we will be able to stand together. I would like to know whether there are Muslim scientists who have similar helpful articles as the ones I want to point out with the following page of Faith and Science Links

    The Galileo Connection

    (Hummel's book is one of the best introductory book around for developing a mature Christian way of looking at science/faith issues.)
