    I find these arguments pretty weak and petty.

    Same argument applies to God.

    really? U know why i believe in islam....it isn't because i can prove the existence of god, its because of the quran god has given to us....that is his proof. read it and understand and then u will realise that everything that is being said today about life was said 1400 years ago....who could have known then? Maybe, the person who created it.

    The Quran was written by humans, just like the bible. It is 'claimed' by a human that God told him all the stuff to write. The Quran is full of scientific errors, hundreds to see here https://wikiislam.net/wiki/Scientifi...s_in_the_Quran. If it is truly from God then why did he make so many errors?

    Heres an example: 'When the sun (with its spacious light) is folded up' it claims the sun can be folded up .

    Is that the reason to become an Atheist, because they did not mention the dinosaurs?
    Dinosaurs are cool.

    is god there to be observed?
    u say that the world was created by the big bang, there has to have been something to cause that....did it "just happen"? For something to happen, there must be a resultant force which has to have been caused by something....not nothing.
    By that logic, God cannot exist because something must have preceded him to create him.

    These aren't my beliefs. I'm just saying, that's a pretty weak argument.

    Probably because dinosaurs were extinct way before Islam/Christianity came about

    Because they are works of fiction invented by ignorant, primitive, little men that didn't know that dinosaurs ever existed. So forget about the theological bull****, the reason is pure and simple: Ignorance; that is why.

    What if the law of causality only applies after the big bang (as well as all other physical laws)?

    Their existance is a matter of fact. Islam says nothing on them. It is completely un-important.
    lols at first read I interpreted this as you saying dinosaurs are a matter of fact, and the Quran doesn't deal with facts at all......which is actually true haha

    I recall reading a passage of the qur'an that noted God saying he put man on a world that had existed before him. Naturally Dinosaurs come before man's time...

    Then the big bang doesn't require a "God" or any other first cause
