Islam, like the other Abrahamic religions, cannot be supported by any scientific facts, and indeed is disproven by them.

In this argument, no arguments will be made about the morality or evils of any religion. This is solely about scientific justifiability. Also, religious hatred is banned. Thank you!

As I understand this, you 're making the statement that Islam can be supported, scientifically.

My question is: Islam can be supported, scientifically, to do what, please?

Can it be used in place of the Periodic Table of the Elements?
Can it be used as a way to track and manage parasites?
Can it be used to make sure that a plumber's work is well-done?

Are you stating that Islam exists, in actuality?
The actual books of the Harry Potter stories exist, in actuality, but the events described, therein,
are fiction.

So, I find your statement to be, poorly, worded.

The information gathered from the layers of the Grand Canyon yields information that can be, and is, supported, scientifically, and, indeed, can, only, be gained by using, purely, scientific methods
and the story is, far more, believable, not too complicated that it cannot be understood
by a person who is learning it for the first time and, interesting.

If you noticed the top part of the argument, then you'll notice that I'm in the "con" section. Therefore, I don't think it can be supported scientifically.
Since the topic statement is vague, let me clarify- I mean that I don't think that there is any evidence to support it, I think that science disproves the religion's beliefs, that is to say, many of the statements made in the Qu'ran are false.

These include the belief of the Earth being 6,000 years old, and other statements including embryology, water, etc. I assume that since you're on the pro side that you believe there is scientific evidence for the beliefs of Islam. I'm not sure what you're trying to say about that.

ug! I apologize. I am with you on this.
Can you push this one off and start it again with slightly different wording
and get a real debate.
I am truly sorry and sincerely apologize

Religions only exist in the minds of their followers.

Where there are no people, there is no religion

Exactly what I think. So everyone, just ignore this whole debate. It's a mistake- so I guess it's a draw now...

Unless someone objects to this, in which case I'll happily set up a debate with you.

I would wish you would define scientifically. I mean if were going to use the same logic that supports Darwin's theory of evolution (this is a guy who didn't no about the single cell) and his examples with the finches seem to support adaptation rather than evolution, then you could prove just about anything you want

If you say that islam isn't supported by scientific proves , but forgive me for my poor english , that prove I will show you is mentioned in the muslim's holy book (quran) , and it talks about how this universe began , the csientist represnt a theoty called "big bang" wich is the whole universe was a huge thing that have been exploded and and made the stars , planets , and the other things that exists in that universe ,the csientists represent that theory bofere 50 years ago , but the muslims holy book mentioned it before 1430 years ago , you can find this in the (quran) in soura called (al-anbiya) verse number 30 , it explain the big bang , thank you

Islam can be supported scientifically from the simple empirical fact there are those who believe in Islam, therefore, those who believe in Islam is true.

On the other hand, the ideology of Islam cannot be supported scientifically.
