    @ Hokey

    From Islamic point of view, the answer is simple:

    "Some of these verses possess deep sacred signs which are kept as puzzles for the well being of mankind. The rest of the verses has meant something else & needs to be interpreted properly"

    btw, r u just googling the contradictions in quran or do u really have read all these things?

    Hokey seems to be getting this stuff from a website called arab-terror.webs dot com, specifically this page http://arab-terror.webs.com/contradictions.htm.

    The home page has this to say:

    im an israeli . my little county is bordering with 2 hostile forces . one is radical islamic hamas ( south ) and the second one is fanatic islamic hizbollah ( north ) . my goal is to explain to you that letting palestinians an independent state would pose a Threat to my tiny country israel . as you can see in the maps and pics ( iranian burning the israeli and the american flag . now

    Can't Israeli nationalists who under no circumstances want peace, make their own hate posts?

        Hi friend Hokey

        Try the following method:

        Whenever you quote a verse form Quran, see the context of the verse; there are clues in the context by which one can understand the true meaning and the apparent contradiction is resolved; at least five preceding and five following verses should be read carefully.

        May be that helps you.

        Thanks
