Couldn't help but notice that the Qur'an claims Jews worship Ezra

as a son of God, in the same way Christians worship Jesus. Seems like a pretty big mistake for God to make, what's up with it?

The Qu'ran claims that humans are made of clay, that sperm originates from the ribs and that the earth is flat, to name a few. I wouldn't take what it says (or any holy text, generally) too seriously.

If only there were some antecedent for the Qur'an's claim that humans are made of clay...

I don't know where you got the second one, and I'm 99% sure it describes the earth as an egg.

Earth is flat verses

As far as the egg thing, it's mistranslated and only in a single verse. I haven't really looked over the verses I linked, they were just the first ones that popped up in google and looked about right.

Is it just me, or that site actually trying to discredit Islam?

You have the right to remain silent, anything you post will be misquoted, then used against you.

I wonder what the counterargument is for Muslims on the verse with Jews worship Ezra?
Feel free to use the Original Arabian text if it is a mistranslation or an interpolation.

Even then it's wrong as an egg isn't spherical.

Saying "I call Godwin's Law!" as an attempt to discredit a statement about Hitler/Nazis is using Godwin's Law incorrectly.
