  1. Miracles of Quran

    Here is my contention regarding the claims of miracles in Quran. Firstly, linguistic miracle: This is a an untestable claim as literary beauty is a subjective matter, and what's beautiful for one need not be so for another. Secondly, lack of contradictions: Writing a book without contradictions isn't a superhuman feat. There are many books without contradictions - all of them are not divine. Moreover, the apparent contradictions have been explained away using the principle of abrogation, which further weakens the argument. Lastly, the concept of preservation: Caught up between confusing theories of 7 Ahrufs, 10 Qirat and innumerable trivial differences between these readings - I think that claim too rests on shaky grounds. I would like to hear your opinions on them.
