Re: Witness a miracle (streaming video)
-"First he says we HAVE to study the text in its original language. THen he needs to translate it in order to put in to a computer"
He didn't translate it, he transliterated it and then entered it into the computer. For example, the first letter in Arabic is "Aleph", so he substituted it by an "A" because of the similar sound, the second is Ba, so he put "B"...etc. That's because there was no Arabic software at the time.
-"in order to put in to a computer. Which, by the way, in 1968 would have been nearly impossible. He must be a computer science genius and have access to the best computers in the world at the time."
He was a biochemist with a Ph.d, God qualifies His messengers before He gives them the message. As for the computer, Rashad Khalifa mentioned that he rented a connection with a huge computer, so that he can use it from his small pc through telephone lines, or something like that.
-"If this code was beyond human ability we would have never figured it out. I mean how can we understand something which is beyond our ability."
That's why God sent us a messenger to reveal it through him.
-"If God left us proof of His existence, we would no longer need faith, which in turn eradicates free will."
You are right, the proof works only to reassure the hearts of the Jewsih, Christians and believers that Quran is the final testament confirming the messages they recieved.
In chapter 74, 19 is mentioned (the only occurence in Quran), amazingly the miracle was revealed in 1974,
The Quran's Common Denominator
[74:30] Over it is nineteen.
[74:31] We appointed angels to be guardians of Hell, and we assigned their number (19) (1) to disturb the disbelievers, (2) to convince the Christians and Jews (that this is a divine scripture), (3) to strengthen the faith of the faithful, (4) to remove all traces of doubt from the hearts of Christians, Jews, as well as the believers, and (5) to expose those who harbor doubt in their hearts, and the disbelievers; they will say, "What did GOD mean by this allegory?" GOD thus sends astray whomever He wills, and guides whomever He wills. None knows the soldiers of your Lord except He. This is a reminder for the people.
For more details by the messenger, see this 60 minute video stream,
