However, much has happened since it went up, including the Blogger outage. Scroll down for a report on that. More new posts will be added below this one. The essay below is the conclusion of the ninth part in a series by Takuan Seiyo.
Until It is important to know the exact Arabic words, for the discussion that follows. Then in verses Then Zul-qarnain goes on to other places, and the chapter finishes with another barrage of promises and threats of doom 91— Now, I hope you understand that even little children today know that the Sun cannot dive into the Earth during sunset, nor can it rise from within the Earth during sunrise, for the simple reason that the Sun is a fiery ball much-much larger than the sphere of the Earth.
Can you imagine a fiery soccer ball diving into a pinhead? What sense can you make of verses Do you think the bright fellow in the picture is getting ready to dive into a muddy spring?
But before answering the above question, remember the scientific principle: If you do so, you show your ignorance of science; so you should stop talking about science existing in your holy book and do some fasting instead, or some other thing that you understand well.
Here is an example of twisting the data: How can you know, for example, that when Allah says that an adulterer or fornicator man or woman must be flogged with lashes Your only motivation for interpreting the data of Besides, an allegory of what?
What is the real thing or situation that is allegorically referred to by verses Another desperate attempt at re-interpretation, very popular and encountered most often among Muslim apologists, goes as follows: He saw the Sun as if setting in a pond!
Did he also see the reflection of those people?
Was Zul-qarnain able to see directly anything at all, or was he always seeing in reflections? For, that is precisely what we are investigating, based on the evidence: Therefore we cannot assume it as a given, a priori, that it is correct! A third, rather pathetic attempt at reinterpretation: First of all, the text says: The poor Sun was still setting in a muddy spring.
The only such candidate noun is the feminine Sun. Temporal-interpretation-or-not, the Sun still dived in a muddy pond! Besides, there is another problem with this reinterpretation, which is independent of language — Arabic or otherwise — and concerns its deeper meaning.
According to the said reinterpretation, the sentence says that Zul-qarnain marched up to the time of the sunset, when he found such-and-such things. Nothing in this interpretation implies that Zul-qarnain walked all the way up to the far ends of the Earth.
Probably he walked for one day only, until the sunset happened.
But now, please ask yourselves: Why should Allah tell us about this trivial event? How many other times in history has it happened that a military leader marched with his army until sunset?Find all Thing answers to your Wheel of Fortune (mobile app) puzzles!
