1400 years ago people thought that wind can push people around however nobody believed that wind can snap trees. Today we know that this is false. Category 5 storms can uproot or snap trees.
Saffir-Simpson scaleCategory 5Very catastrophic damage will occurCategory 5 is the highest category of the Saffir-Simpson scale. These storms cause complete roof failure on many residences and industrial buildings, and some complete building failures with small utility buildings blown over or away... Virtually all trees are uprooted or snapped and some may be debarked, isolating most affected communities.
In category 5 storms virtually all trees are uprooted or snapped. This was only known recently, however this was portrayed in the Quran 1400 years before it was discovered.
٦ وَأَمَّا عَادٌ فَأُهْلِكُوا بِرِيحٍ صَرْصَرٍ عَاتِيَةٍ
٧ سَخَّرَهَا عَلَيْهِمْ سَبْعَ لَيَالٍ وَثَمَانِيَةَ أَيَّامٍ حُسُومًا فَتَرَى الْقَوْمَ فِيهَا صَرْعَىٰ كَأَنَّهُمْ أَعْجَازُ نَخْلٍ خَاوِيَةٍ
The wind snapped the trunks of palm trees leaving behind empty stumps. Today we know that this is possible in category 5 storms.
How could an illiterate man who lived 1400 years ago have known that wind can snap trees?
The Quran (Koran, the book of Islam) contains scientific knowledge that could not have been known 1400 years ago. It ranges from basic arithmetics to the most advanced topics in astrophysics. You are invited to go through those miracles and judge for yourself.
