In Response To: Certainly, the Qur'an is the Word of God (Dr Shabbir, Florida)

36. Easts and the Wests. In 70:40, the Quran talks of the Easts and the Wests (in plural). How many people is the 7th century knew that the points of sunrise and sunset keep changing in different seasons!

Dr Saab, you may have to refine this as sites like Stonehenge make it apparent that they did know about the changes in the Sun's rising and setting points. They had interest in the shortest day, setting a special stone to show this day, and would have observed that the Sun was rising at points along other stones at other times of the year.
