Ok, so while eating halal pepperoni for the first time in Scarborough (not for any good reason, just kind of was there), I spotted something across the road. I didnt even know these existed, it was an Islamic bookstore. I checked the place out for a bit, and decided to by the book "The Bible, The Quran and Science," by Maurice Bucaille. Im reading it right now, but after @Jebreil's lecture on intellectual rigour in the Ummah, I thought we could have a good discussion on the different parts of the book. It'll also help for this to be out there for all non muslims to see the unparalleled eloquence, beauty and preciseness that not even the prose of all the skilled poets of Arabia could match. It might also be helpful to have the views of some SC resident Christians here, especially on topics surrounding the Bible. Inshallah I will find a PDF format so everyone can read the book, and we can have some healthy discussion on the most important parts of the book. Maybe we'll even come away with a full Shia commentary on the book by the time we're done lol. SO, lets get started. Inshallah I'll put up the first topic of discussion later this week.
