things people have said

it would be better to destroy every other book ever written, and just save the first three verses of Genesis

If there is a contradiction between a definitive [Koranic] text and conjectural science, then the scientific theory is refuted

A speaker at the First International Conference on Scientific Miracles of the Koran and Sunnah
