Thwarting more claim of contradictions of the Quran

Misconceived contradiction of the moon and the heavens
The moon is further away than stars;  Quran 71;16 "moon in the midst of 7 heavens" 37;6 "stars in the lower/nearest heaven"   this is false, the moon is the nearest natural object to us, so is NOT in the midst of stars (or further)  stars are much further away
The full sentence of the Quran with Arabic words:
“See ye not how Allah has created the seven heavens one above another, “And made the moon a light in their midst (fihinna) and made the sun as a (Glorious) Lamp? Surah 71:15-16. And in another verse: We have indeed decked the lower heaven with beauty (in) the stars (Surah 37:6)
REFUTATION: There is no contradiction in the above verse as the Arabic text “fihinna” in Surah 71:16 actually means ‘in it’ and not the mistranslation “midst”. The word “midst” in Arabic is “sawaa e” as the example shown here in Surah 37:55 He looked down and saw him in the midst of the fire. So the accuser of the contradiction lacked the knowledge of Arabic to forward his point.
Misconceived contradiction over created pairs
Quran 51;49 "everything created in pairs"  asexuals?  
REFUTATION: As a pair Allah created the night and the day, darkness and light, heaven and hell and so is the above asexual is paired with sexual. This can be seen in the production of new individuals or offspring in plants, which can be accomplished by sexual or asexual reproduction. Sexual reproduction produces offspring by the fusion of gametes, resulting in offspring genetically different from the parent or parents. Asexual reproduction produces new individuals without the fusion of gametes, genetically identical to the parent plants and each other, except when mutations occur. There is therefore no contradiction in the Quran over verse 51:49.”Everything We have created pairs”
Misconceived contradiction over stars as missiles, the moon and the sun
Quran 67;5 stars are 'missiles to drive away devils'.  Quran 21: 33 "And the Sun and Moon; both of them float along in its orbit"-------- this clearly implies the sun goes around the earth. Quran 91;2 "the moon follows the sun"  this is false, the moon has its own orbit.. Qur'an, 71:16 "placed the moon as a light" the moon has no light. the word reflected (in`ikaas) does not appear in this sentence
REFUTATION: There is no contradiction in Surah 67:5 as it says: And certainly We have adorned this lower heaven with lamps and We have made these missiles for the Shaitans, and We have prepared for them the chastisement of burning. Allah did not use the stars as missiles as wrongly claimed but He used lamps as missiles as the meaning of lamps is correctly as a device that generate light and often heat.
The Surah 21:33 did not implies the sun goes around the earth or in Surah 91:2 showing the moon has its own orbit, it just shows with the naked eyes that the sun comes out during the day and the moon comes out during the night and that will flow the night and the day every day.
Of course the moon does not have light of its own. The light we see from the moon is the light of the sun reflected toward earth. The sun is the primary source of light as stated: It is He Who made the sun to be a shining glory and the moon to be a light (of beauty), (Surah 10:5). However this reflection will disappear when the sun is darkened as shown in the Quran: When the sun (with its spacious light) is folded up; and when the stars fall losing their lustre. (Surah 81:1-2). There will be no light whether to the stars or the moon as there is no more reflection from the sun. Thus there is no contradiction here.
Misconceived contradiction over the big bang
Quran 21;30 "heaven and earth used to be joined together before the ‘big bang"
The earth did not exist before the big bang.
REFUTATION: There can be many earth and many big bangs as Allah is Great He is able to repeat His creation as He created the earth He destroyed and recreate it and it is easy for Him as stated: See they not that Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth, has power to create the like of them (anew)? (Surah 17:99); See they not how Allah originates creation, then repeats it: truly that is easy for Allah (Surah 29:19) The Day that We roll up the heavens like a scroll rolled up for books (completed), even as We produced the first creation, so shall We produce a new one: a promise We have undertaken: truly shall We fulfil it (Surah 21:104). So this is only the misconceived of the accuser of the Quran but it is certainly not a contradiction.
Misconceived contradiction there is no gap or discrepancy in the universe
Quran 67:3 there are no gaps or discrepencies in the universe  this is false, black holes are regions of space from which nothing, including light, can escape.
The full verse as stated in the Quran is as follow: Who created seven heavens one upon another. Thou seest not in the creation of the All-merciful any imperfection. Return thy gaze; seest thou any fissure? (Surah 67:3)
REFUTATION: In the above message Allah is speaking about His perfection in creating the universe and the black holes and galaxies are all part of His creation. Although the black holes is full of mystery some aspect have been known that It is an extremely massive and dense object in space that is thought to be formed by a star collapsing under its own gravity. Just because black holes are black, because nothing, not even light, can escape from its extreme gravity does not mean God is imperfect in His creation. He has His reason and purpose for His creation and His creation goes beyond the black holes still unknown to human minds. There is no contradiction.
Misconceived contradiction God sends earthquakes only to non-Muslim nations
Quran 17:16 God sends earthquakes only to non-muslim nations this is false. the higest death tolls from natural disasters this millennia were muslim countries  2004 indonesia; 170000 dead - 2005 kashmir; 86000 dead - 2003 bam iran; 30000 dead
The verse do not match the accusation claim of the above and this is the actual words in the Quran: When We decide to destroy a population, We (first) send a definite order to those among them who are given the good things of this life and yet transgress; so that the word is proved true against them: then (it is) We destroy them utterly (Surah 17:16)  
REFUTATION: In the verse stated above there is no such description that God sends earth quakes to only to non-Muslim nations it is stated that whoever transgress against God will be destroyed as and when He wills it. The example shown in earth quakes are those who reject the apostles of God as stated in these verses: The leaders, the unbelievers among his people, said: "If ye follow Shu'aib, be sure then ye are ruined!" But the earthquake took them unawares, and they lay prostrate in their homes before the morning! (Surah 7:90-91). To the Madyan (people) (We sent) their brother Shu'aib. then he said: "O my people! serve Allah, and fear the Last Day: nor commit evil on the earth, with intent to do mischief." But they rejected him: Then the mighty earthquake seized them, and they lay prostrate in their homes by the morning. (Surah 29:36-37). And in another example it is stated:  How many populations have We destroyed, which were given to wrong-doing? They tumbled down on their roofs. And how many wells are lying idle and neglected, and castles lofty and well-built? (Surah 22:45). So God destroy a population based of their wrong doings rather than nation. So this is misinformation of the accuser of the contradiction.
