Scientific evidence to prove religions??

Since there is already another thread taking into count religion and science,I thought of posting this thread here.
I found this site actually from a link from a commercial on the main site here.
The auther clearly trying to prove a religion by using scientific stuff (general relativity , ...)
I've read the site, and saw what text he used from the Quran , I've read them in arabic it seem that the info translation from arabic to english is valid,but i'm more concernd on how did he used them.
Info twisting seem very wide these days...
what do you think?
what can you say about his work on the site?

Well the author makes some interesting assertions with regarding to interpreting specific words in Qu'ran. That does not seem very scientific.

I am skeptical of 'exactly' 12000 lunar orbits right away.

I remain highly skeptical. :rolleyes:

BTW - this thread could be close to becoming a religious discussion rather than a scientific one, which would violate the agreements/rules of PF. Hopefully discussion/criticism/disputation will be limited to the claims or method, and will not evolve into a religious discussion.

the only intrest i have is regarding the science involved , that's it.
As for the 1200 lunar well arabs at that time used lunar calendar ,the lunar year it's about 11~12 days shorter then normal year.

The science involved is "crackpottery". There are several outright mistakes, in addition to subtle ones, from this website.

Examples:

But according to Einstein's theory of General Relativity, the velocity of light varies with the intensity of the gravitational field, that is, this is not the speed of light inside gravitational fields.

Special Relativity says that the speed of light in vacuum is constant. But "vacuum" does not only mean outside matter but also means outside gravitational fields; that is, if you are in a gravitational field then you are not in vacuum even if there is no air around you. In this case special relativity does not hold.

etc...etc.

I have come across this site before and had the strong impression that whoever wrote this could only "copy" what was said without understanding the content of the physics.

Please note that our Guidelines strictly prohibit advertizing crackpot websites such as this.

The link also violates our "Religious Discussion" guideline as it clearly proclaims the superiority of one religion over another.
