Matt, I am very familiar with what is referred to as 'higher criticism' of the Bible and I am also very aware that the vast majority of Christians are both unaware of and uninterested in its findings.  Do you feel the same is true of Islam?  That would explain at least some of rememberallah's eccentricities.

Bob, this might be the case in the US, because Christian fundamentalism is a widespread phenomenon unfortunately. This is different in Europe. Creationism is almost non-existent over here. And many educated Christians are aware of the method. Yes, Islam needs higher criticism too. People have to understand the historic context the Quran was created. But there are so few liberal Muslims. I think they are afraid of all the hardliners.

peace be on you,
what will explain your eccentricities bob? perhaps it is you who doesnt know the truth, dont be so confdent on your research and analyses. other people around the world have brains too. i have become a believer after being an athiest, i have made my nature my criterion to judge things and stand where i am standing today. you seem to be too certain, thats where lies your un-intelligence. certainties are based on probabilities, and in department of probability, in none of the posts on kuran & science you have been able to disprove what i have said.
may God guide all

rememberallah, I'm afraid that disproving your statement is not how science and the scientific method works.  Your hypothesis that the Quran contains scientifically miraculous statements needs facts to back it up.  You have provided none, only opinions as to what certain verses mean.  These are not facts.  Let me say it one more time, for emphasis.  Your opinion as to the meaning of Quranic verses do not constitute facts and facts are what you need to prove anything including your assertion that the Quran contains foreknowledge of modern science.  It is not up to me to disprove anything.  You are the one with the theory.  Perhaps you should read up on the scientific method and logic before you seek to lecture on science and probability.

The conclusion of your opening remarks were "This is a scientific fact which could not had been known 1400 yrs ago and is a clear indication in favor of the Qurans claim that it is a revelation from God the Creator of the heavens and the earth who knows all the secrets of the universe."  This is merely your opinion.  The problem is that you do not know the difference between an opinion and a fact.  Please see my last post.

And yet in {30:20}, among other passages, the Quran says "He creates you out of dust". 
 
So is it dust, or is it water?
