      Scientific miracles of the Qur'an?

      alright so im just asking how can these things end up in the Qur'an if the quran was revealed like 1400 years ago, way before the time of modern science and not one word has been changed in the Qur'an..
      heres a long list:Miracles of the Qur'an - Modern Science Reveals New Miracles of the Qur'an

      There's about as much scientific merit in the Qu'ran as there is in the Bible. That is to say, none.

      All of it is either common knowledge of the time, or text taken to mean things totally different than what it actually says.

      For example from that link, "… We send down from heaven pure water so that by it We can bring a dead land to life and give drink to many of the animals and people We created. (Qur'an, 25:48-49)" Which apparently means they knew scientifically that water makes crops and lands grow. Well duh, everyone at the time knew that water made plants and crops grow. They had droughts back then too. That is totally common knowledge of the time.

      Or this "[I swear] by Heaven which returns and the earth which splits. (Qur'an, 86:11-12)" There is no way possible you can stretch that sentence into proof they knew about plate tectonics, which the website claims. It could simply be talking about earth quakes which people knew about at the time, there is no way it is talking about plate tectonics though.

      Or this "Have you not seen how God makes the clouds move gently, then joins them together, then makes them into a stack, and then you see the rain come out of it.... " And they claim no scientist knew about this until recently. Seriously? People didn't know clouds moved across the sky and some times the big ones rain? Seriously?
