The last shall be first.. And the blue shell shall lay its vengeance upon thee

I chatted with a Muslim a few days ago about the Koran. He claimed that, since the Koran alludes to DNA and evolution, through a vague scripture inside of it, that must mean that the Koran is scientific. “Because Allah put those ‘clues’ in the Koran”. Basically, what the argument amounts to, is that, as soon as we find something new in any field of the sciences, we must go to the Koran and interprate exactly which one it must be.

That’s sort of how Astrology works, and you could easily do the same with the bible or any other ancient text. For instance. Did the bible predict that Mario Kart would be known for its blue shells?

This is obviously humbug though. Unless that wasn’t obvious. I mean, sure, it makes sense in a way, and i guess to Christians, it even holds some weight. Since that’s the logic a lot of you seem to operate upon.

All in all. No religious text contains scientific answers (Which is why scientists don’t go to them to find answers), and it’s wrong to point out after the discovery and understanding that “Well, my religious book knew that all alooooooong!!1one”. It’s not the type of logic one should use, and you will be laughed at if you use it.

I know i haven’t said anything too original here and i doubt it’ll change anyone’s mind, but i just wanted to get it out there. The picture kind of sparked it, as is probably evident in how it’s written.
