Have any of you read Jules Verne, the French science fiction writer from late 1800s? He actually predicted a lot of scientific stuff that came true in the 20th century.

But does that mean he was omniscient? No, it just shows that he had the basic ideas of science and a very imaginative mind.


Nasif: That picture is very nice. But you know that the colors in the astronomical photographs aren't 'real', right?

Read this:

It's written by an astrophotographer whose job is to beautify/doctor these photos so that there is a pleasurable emotional response from the viewer. (In your case, the fact that the color matched a description in Quran has produced a strong emotional response, i.e., a sense of miracle or whatever, even though it is NOT based on the real color of the thing.)
