How could the Allah book quran be scientific when...

    The Prophet said "If a house fly falls in the drink of anyone of you, he should dip it (in the drink), for one of its wings has a disease and the other has the cure for the disease." (Sahih Al-Bukhari: Volume 4, Book 54, Number 537)

    Doesnt sound like true scientific method to me.

    Sounds more like the sort of stupid things schoolboys make up, or tribal goatherders/fuckers.


    Credit to "skyfire" for providing, and bringing this quote to my attention.

      Before claiming the Hadith as stupid, u cld have done some researches that will validate the hadith, let me tell u that medically speaking, it is well known now that the fly carries some pathagens on some parts of its body as mentioned by the Prophet (before 1400 years. approx. when the humans knew very little of modern medicine.) Similarly Allah created organisms and other mechanisms which kill these pathagens e.g. penicillin Fungus kills pathogenic organisms like Staphalococci . Recently experiments have been done under supervision which indicate that a fly carries the disease (pathagens) plus the antidote for those organ-isms. Ordinarily when a fly touches a liquid food it infects the liquid with its pathogens, so it must be dipped in order to release also the antidote for those pathogens to act as a counter balance to the pathogens. wink

                It 's a scientific fact since 1917, u r the 1 who is claiming here , it has been EVIDENCE of bacterial pathogen-suppressing micro-organisms living in houseflies. An article in Vol. 43 of the Rockefeller Foundation's Journal of Experimental Medicine (1927) p. 1037 stated:

                "The flies were given some of the cultured microbes for certain diseases. After some time the germs died and no trace was left of them while a germ-devouring substance formed in the flies - bacteriophages. If a saline solution were to be obtained from these flies it would contain bacteriophages able to suppress four kinds of disease-inducing germs and to benefit immunity against four other kinds."
                u can also check this:

                  I think you are jumping to conclusions and are attempting to link a generalized faith based claim to something entirely different. Within the fly's internal gastronomic system, some bacterias will remain for a period of time and eventually will disappear. This really has nothing to do with a disease on one wing and the antidote on another. Here are the conclusions of the experiment:

                here is a new study called The new buzz on antibiotics, read it:
                The surface of flies is the last place you would expect to find antibiotics, yet that is exactly where a team of Australian researchers is concentrating their efforts
                Working on the theory that flies must have remarkable antimicrobial defences to survive rotting dung, meat and fruit, the team at the Department of Biological Sciences, Macquarie University, set out to identify those antibacterial properties manifesting at different stages of a fly’s development.

                "Our research is a small part of a global research effort for new antibiotics, but we are looking where we believe no-one has looked before,” said Ms Joanne Clarke, who presented the group’s findings at the Australian Society for Microbiology Conference in Melbourne this week. The project is part of her PhD thesis.
                The scientists tested four different species of fly: a house fly, a sheep blowfly, a vinegar fruit fly and the control, a Queensland fruit fly which lays its eggs in fresh fruit. These larvae do not need as much antibacterial compound because they do not come into contact with as much bacteria.

                Flies go through the life stages of larvae and pupae before becoming adults. In the pupae stage, the fly is encased in a protective casing and does not feed. "We predicted they would not produce many antibiotics," said Ms Clarke.

                They did not. However the larvae all showed antibacterial properties (except that of the Queensland fruit fly control).

                As did all the adult fly species, including the Queensland fruit fly (which at this point requires antibacterial protection because it has contact with other flies and is mobile).

                Such properties were present on the fly surface in all four species, although antibacterial properties occur in the gut as well. "You find activity in both places," said Ms Clarke.

                "The reason we concentrated on the surface is because it is a simpler extraction.”

                The antibiotic material is extracted by drowning the flies in ethanol, then running the mixture through a filter to obtain the crude extract.
                When this was placed in a solution with various bacteria including E.coli, Golden Staph, Candida (a yeast) and a common hospital pathogen, antibiotic action was observed every time.

                "We are now trying to identify the specific antibacterial compounds," said Ms Clarke. Ultimately these will be chemically synthesised.

                Because the compounds are not from bacteria, any genes conferring resistance to them may not be as easily transferred into pathogens. It is hoped this new form of antibiotics will have a longer effective therapeutic life.

      Few more Hadith gems wink



      1. Volume 4, Book 54, Number 516:

      The Prophet said, "If anyone of you rouses from sleep and performs the ablution, he should wash his nose by putting water in it and then blowing it out thrice, because Satan has stayed in the upper part of his nose all the night."

      2. Volume 7, Book 71, Number 608:

      Allah's Apostle said, '(There is) no 'Adwa (no contagious disease is conveyed without Allah's permission). nor is there any bad omen (from birds), nor is there any Hamah, nor is there any bad omen in the month of Safar, and one should run away from the leper as one runs away from a lion ''

      3. Bukhari:Volume 4 Book 55 Number 546

      “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘Gabriel has just now told me of the answer. If a man has sexual intercourse with his wife and gets discharge first, the child will resemble him, and if the woman gets discharge first, the child will resemble her.’

      4. Bukhari: Volume 7, Book 65, Number 306:
      Allah’s Apostle said, “A believer eats in one intestine (is satisfied with a little food), and a kafir (unbeliever) or a hypocrite eats in seven intestines (eats too much).”

      5. Volume 2, Book 21, Number 245:

      A person was mentioned before the Prophet (p.b.u.h) and he was told that he had kept on sleeping till morning and had not got up for the prayer. The Prophet said, "Satan urinated in his ears."

      6. Sahih Muslim Book 028, Number 5612:

      Buraida reported on the authority of his father that Allah?s Apostle (may peace be upon him) said: He who played chess is like one who dyed his hand with the flesh and blood of swine.

      Quran does not claim to be a text book of science.

      Quran wants that man should enrich his intelligence and experience by pondering over the natural and physical phenomenon in the Universe.

      [67:1] In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.
      [67:2] Blessed is He in Whose hand is the kingdom, and He has power over all things;

      [67:3] Who has created death and life that He might try you — which of you is best in deeds; and He is the Mighty, the Most Forgiving.
      [67:4] Who has created seven heavens in harmony. No incongruity canst thou see in the creation of the Gracious God. Then look again: Seest thou any flaw?

      [67:5] Aye, look again, and yet again, thy sight will only return unto thee confused and fatigued.

          Scholars are human beings; they could make mistakes; the Quran does not mention that it is a text book of science or that Quran was sent by the Creator-God Allah YHWH so that man could make advancement in science by just reading it. Quran does not prophibit scientific activity or any other faculty of knowledge.

          51.47: And the heaven We constructed with strength, and indeed, We are [its] expander....

          revealed 1400 years ago, confirmed today that the universe is still expanding.

          55:33 O assembly of jinns and men! If you have power to pass beyond the zones of the heavens and the earth, then pass (them)! But you will never be able to pass them, except with authority (from Allah)!

          talking about space exploration that has been achieved today.

          22:5 O mankind! If you are in doubt about the Resurrection, then verily! We have created you (i.e. Adam) from dust, then from a Nutfah (mixed drops of male and female sexual discharge i.e. offspring of Adam), then from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood) then from a little lump of flesh, some formed and some unformed (miscarriage), that We may make (it) clear to you (i.e. to show you Our Power and Ability to do what We will). And We cause whom We will to remain in the wombs for an appointed term, then We bring you out as infants, then (give you growth) that you may reach your age of full strength.

            The above are all true; by reading such verses one can get guidance in one's life in matters spiritual and improve oneself; but a text book of science is in equations, symbols and terminology not understandable by ordinary persons.

            From the style of Quran everone can benefit from it directly.

        I've just noticed in your quotations Paar the inconsistencies in the language used. You have a mix of 'you's and 'thee's from one verse to the next. You start by quoting modern English but then go all Shakespearian with the 'canst' the 'thou' and the 'aye'. Does Allah speak Elizabethan occasionally? Please answer with quotes from Quran.
