The world is flat, the Big Bang never happened, light and sound travel at the same speed, and the stars exist to stone the devils.
In order to comport with the Koran, the Muslim student has turned thousands of years of scientific fact on their head. From Pythagoras to Copernicus to Magellan, Newton and Einstein, they’re all wrong – because the Koran says so.
The amazing research is being conducted with the consent of the University of Sfax in a city by the same name in the Muslim country. WorldCrunch first reported the amazing story:
In short, her thesis was that the Earth if flat … The doctoral student puts forth a new vision of kinetics that, indeed, conforms to the verses of the Koran.
She was quoted in the French-language magazine Jeune Afrique as having written that “all the data and the physical, religious arguments have made it possible to demonstrate the central position, the fixation and the flattening of the surface of the Earth, the revolution of the Sun and the Moon around it. She then argued that the “stars have three roles: to be scenery in the sky; to stone the devils and as signs to guide the creatures in the darkness of the earth.”
Needless to say, she is being widely mocked – even in Muslim academia – for such an idiotic idea.
A professor at the University of Tunis mocked the fact that a college in his country could be funding and supporting such idiocy:
“How has such work been accepted in the doctoral school since 2011?” Professor Faouzia Charfi asked. “How can we accept that the University is not the space of knowledge, of scientific rigor, but that of the negation of science. Is that where science is refused because it does not conform with Islam?”
Another academic in Tunisia was even more outraged: “It’s unacceptable, it’s inadmissible,” Chokri Mamohhli said. “The ignominy is reflected on the entire research community, on the Tunisian University, on the credibility of our diplomas, on the recruitment opportunities of our young people in foreign laboratories and even on the country.”
And on Islam, Mr. Mamoghli. Don’t forget how this nonsense reflects on Islam.
