In one of his lectures Dr. Zakir Naik, founder of the Islamic Research Foundation, stated that there was a contradiction in the Bible. He read from the book of Genesis about the appearance of vegetation before the creation of light. His point was that how could there be vegetation before light. Thus he concluded that the Bible is in error with science. Let me point out that Mr. Naik, founder of the IRF, actually thinks like an infant.
Sure... all of us know that vegetation requires light to take form. But let us all consider in what manner did creation occur. Did light just "appear" or did it travel in straight lines as Mr. Naik assumed. Is Zakir Naik correct in his presumption of light's paths at creation? I'll leave that answer to you because everyone know that light travels in particles.
But on the other hand doesn't the Koran say that with Allah anything is possible? According to Mr. Naik God "needs" light for vegetation to grow. If that were the case then would Mr. Naik care to explain the countless miracles in the Koran from a "scientific" point of view? Unlike Mr. Naik we, Christians, do not hold God's miracles in association with science because with God anything is indeed possible.
