Moon wars: Muslim scholars clash with space observatory over lunar calendar

06.08.2013 12:30

Muslim scholars in the Caucasus are locked in a heated dispute with scientists at Azerbaijan’s Shamakhi Observatory – over the lunar cycle. They say an opinion of the faithful wasn’t taken into account when “setting the date” for the next new moon.

This article is a bunch of nonsense and only shows how russians are prejudiced against Muslims. There is a God and Russia always seems to lose out when being arrogant against good people. This one will be no different. In America we have a saying: God don't like ugly...

  


who are Americans to say what Ugly is?

F rankly, I don't CARE what Islam has to say about the moon. We learned all we needed to know about it on 9/11.

  

Re ally? are you inbreed or something? oh wait you´re an american, that says it all.

Abdur Rahman says "This article is a bunch of nonsense and only shows how russians are prejudiced against Muslims"
This is silly. For all Abdur knows the scientists working at the observatory are Muslim. Muslims don't have to be blinkered by what was written by less knowledgeable men centuries ago.

Muslim groups disagree and fight amongst themselves everyday, killing each other with bombs guns etc.
Its not suprising or news that they disagree on the moon...

  


The Xtians did this for 100s of years what is the difference? Have you forgotten that it's the so called Xtian armies & politistitutes sending millions of Muslims to the grave today (Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria, Iran, Somalia, Bosnia etc...)? The salafis in Syria are armed by Xtian politicians to destroy one of the oldest world civilisations in the name of democracy for a hidden US/Zionist agenda.

[quote name='Peter Ateo' time='07.08.2013 07:15']Thermite? No. just planes filled with fuel. at 1,100 degrees the steel softens enough to bend and begin the pancake collapse seen on 9/11. As an engineer, I understand the physics of it and it makes sense. I own three welders and I make steel bend easily all the time (and at nowhere near its melting temperature).[/quote ]

I wouldn't give a contract to someone who misunderstands physics like you. The black smoke from those planes was no > 1500 F. but iron needs at least 2800 F. to melt. As for the pancake effect, it was caused by explosives & it's proven. Go learn more..

@ PETER ATEO #TheCoward
Such a shame that you are so educated you could support your theory and media's theory to insult 23% of world population because of the 0.00001% of muslims who are involved in 9/11 AND IF there are any involved.

Cowardly comments of yours proves that you are stupid in other words un-educated disrespectful person. Maybe you should start reading a little bit about (NORAD) north american aerospace defense command before talking about american defence.

God gave you to ears and two eyes to listen and observe before opening your mouth!!!

@ Peter Ateo... COWARD

I guess you have graduated in the school of media (The university of BBC,CNN and fox news) You are and have become an islamophobic fundamentalist who have no shame of insulting 1.6 billion Muslims, or 23% of the world’s population. Because of you owning three welders?

You own three welders and that supports your scientific approach and also gives you the knowledge that supports your version the purported formula of 9/11?

That shows how intelligent you are: all your culture was built in one day: 9/11 - congrats ...

They didn't 'miraculously' learn to fly jumbo jets. They took flight lessons in Florida. no mystery or miracle required - just plain old U..S. dollars. I have a private pilot license for small planes, but I'll bet I could easily hit a building with a large one (very stable in flight), if I were brain-addled on some stupid ancient desert-dwelling religion.

W hat defenses? Planes can fly where they want in America, even into buildings. There was no 'defensive' network in place to stop them.

 

Peter Ateo 07.08.2013 05:28

Science versus fossilized mythology? Hmmm.

Which one has cured multiple disease types? Which brought us transportation? Which one helps society understand and relate to each other via a plethora of high-tech media? Which one has doubled our life expectancy?

Which one flies planes into buildings and beheads children? Which one has done NOTHING to advance society , social interactions, medicine and education? Which one wraps half its people in cloth bags in 100+ degree weather? Which one mutilates genitals?

F rankly, I don't CARE what Islam has to say about the moon. We learned all we needed to know about it on 9/11.

I think I am dealing with some blankety blanks here. @Internaut: The lunar year was always used by Jews, Muslims as well as Xtians for Easter Sunday. When the Jews were hunted in Europe where do you think they went for shelter? Please go and educate yourself.
As for Francis: I don't know which planet have you landed from but in case you just arrived, Al-Qaeda in syria is doing the unthinkable to women & children & is supported by Western governments. 75% of Syrians are against this Western agenda. Your info is from your main stream media & we know its agenda.
As for Karl: I can't find words to answer his basic mind.

So much misinformation, hatred, and experts here. Trolls exluded as usual.

Too bad Alah forgot to tell Mohamed to exclude hatered for anyone... or did he, and Mohamed used writers privilage? Crying over a moon phase. Such childishness, and we call ourselves the intelligent of the species.

You r comment reflects so much hatred toward Muslims for something that doesn't even concern you. You generalise and put us all in the same bag. Looking at what your people are doing in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and the rest of the Muslim world isn't a frikken human disaster and we have to put up with that. Isn't it? Get a life DDD Francis and get real.[/quote]

pull all support and funding from the middle east by the west, and get back to me. you westernized muslims have no idea so why dont you head on over to syria and tell the locals we dont need the wests help.
