The Bible's Scientific blunder on the Moon
Christians always like to argue that the Quran commits a scientific blunder when it comes to the moon's light, however so it seems they do this to take the heat of their own Bible, because in reality it is their Bible which keeps making the scientific blunder regarding the moon's light. We illustrate this now:
Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.
Notice this verse from the Bible says that the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun; this indicates that the moon will have its own light, which will be as great as the sun. As we all know that cannot happen, since the moon does not even have it is own light, rather it is reflected light from the sun. Christians have been so troubled by this verse that Christian commentaries went through deception saying the moon's light here referred to the Church or the Gospel! How convenient, in fact this is a recurring issue with Christians, whenever there is a scientific blunder in the Bible, or something very absurd, they say it is metaphorical and referring to the Gospel or the Church, how convenient.
This is not the only verse in the Bible that is scientifically wrong regarding the moon, there is more:
Isa 13:10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
Notice the verse says that moon shall not cause HER LIGHT to shine, meaning the moon has its own light.
Christians have tried to fix this problem up by saying the verse says the sun is darkened, and since the sun is darkened it gives off not light therefore the moon will also be darkened meaning the verse is scientifically correct. The answer is wishful thanking rather than factual.
If one carefully reads the verse, one will notice this is a chain of objects in space which will be giving up their light, notice it says the stars will not give their light, then it says the sun, then the moon. What this means is that each of these objects, the stars, the sun, and the moon each have their own light, if we want to use the Christian response that will mean the sun becomes dark due to the stars losing their light! And as we know, the sun does not shine because of the stars light, rather it shines because it is a big ball of flame.
Secondly, the verse says that moon shall cause HER LIGHT, showing the light belongs to the moon, meaning the light is the moon's own, not borrowed or reflected. So either way the verse is scientifically wrong, and there are many other verses like this showing the author of the Bible believed the moon had its own light:
Eze 32:7 And when I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven, and make the stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light.
Mat 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
Mar 13:24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,
The Bible is wrong as usual.
