Quran’s Textual History (with Nabeel Qureshi)

UTR #44


Most Muslims believe the Qur’anic manuscripts have been so well preserved that there are no meaningful textual variants. We explore this claim misunderstanding with a former Muslim and current Christian apologist, Nabeel Qureshi. Nabeel’s book and audio book – Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus – are outstanding; nothing better has been written to reach devout and thinking Muslims in the West.

Special Guest: Nabeel Qureshi (author, Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus)

THE HISTORY OF SCIENCE vs. HISTORICAL REVISIONISM

Ohenypl

HISTORY OF SCIENCE ROCKIN’ ON YOUR RADIOOO!

The pop culture consensus is generally unaware of the history of modern science and its Christian origins. To make matters worse, many internet atheists engage in historical revisionism when engaging this issue. For example, see the hard secular polemics of Richard Carrier, who is following in the footsteps of his outdated, outmoded and outlandish forebears, John William Draper and Andrew Dickson.

Dr. Jonathan Sarfati (Creation Ministries International) was on Backpack Radio (link) to discuss the Christian roots related to the rise of modern science. I was on an episode of Apologia Radio to discuss the same thing and respond to somecriticism of the claim. Apologia’s website says the show, “will hopefully cause praise to flow from your lips to God Who is the very foundation of any pursuit of scientific discovery.” My sentiments exactly. On this post, I share some thoughts on the history and development of modern science.
