Q. Dr. Campbell did first attempt to bring up supposed false facts pertaining to the Qur’anic views on the universe – and you did refute these accusations. However… was not addressed, what the Bible says about the shape of the earth, and those other aspects?

A. (Dr. Zakir): Sister asked the question that I did not address, regarding what the Bible says about the shape of the earth – due to lack of time – I can point out another 100 points – lack of time. Anyhow, sister wants to know what the Bible speaks about shape of the earth. ­­­­­­It is mentioned in the Bible, in the Gospel of Mathew, Chapter No.4, Verse No.8, it says – the same reference which Dr. William Campbell used about tempting… ‘The devil took him… that is Jesus Christ, peace be upon him, to an exceedingly high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the earth and its glory. ­­­­­Gospel of Luke Chapter No.4, Verse No.5…‘The devil took him to a high mountain and showed him the glory of all the kingdoms of the world.’ ­­­­­­ Now, even if you go to the tallest mountain, the highest mountain in the world… that is Mount Everest, and supposingly, you have a very good vision, and can see for thousands of miles together – Yet, you will not be able to see all the kingdoms of the world – Because today we know, the earth is spherical. You will not be able to see the kingdom, of the opposite side of the world. The only way you will be able to see, if the earth was flat. ­­­­­­That is the description what the Bible gives…‘The earth is flat.’ ­­­­­­Further more, this same description is repeated in the book of Daniel, Chapter No.4, Verse No.10 and 11. ­­­­­­It says… ‘In a dream, that the tree grew up into the heaven, and there when the tree grew up into the heaven, it grew up so much, that every one from all the ends of the earth, they could see the tree. ­­­­­­This is only possible, if the shape of the earth was flat. ­­­­­­If a tree is very long and the shape of the earth was flat it is possible.­­­­­­ Today it is a universal fact that the world is spherical – You will never be able to see the tree, however much long it is, from the opposite side of the spherical shape of the earth. ­­­­­­ Further more if you read, it is mentioned in the 1st Chronicles, Chapter No.16, Verse No.30, that… ‘The earth does not move.’ ­­­­­­ The same is repeated in the book of Psalms, Chapter No.93, Verse No.1, that… ‘Almighty God has stabilized the earth.’ – That means the earth does not move. ­­­­­­And in the New International Version, it says that… ‘God has established and stopped the movement of the earth.
