Kuffar science finally starting to play catch up with noble Quran.
Not so,"kuffar"science knew in the 7th century the earth was spherical,but Allah disagreed and said the earth was flat.
The author of the Quran, allegedly Allah, did not know that the earth was round, he has mis guided Muslims for 1400 years telling them that the earth is flat, even disagreeing with those who know that the earth is round.
One error in a book said to come from the divine, is one error too many.
The Quran is manmade not God made, it proves it by making fundamental mistakes like this one.
Al Jalalayan tafsir 88.20
And the earth, how it was laid out flat?, and thus infer from this the power of God, exalted be He, and His Oneness? The commencing with the [mention of] camels is because they are closer in contact with it [the earth] than any other [animal]. As for His words sutihat, ‘laid out flat’, this on a literal reading suggests that the earth is flat, which is the opinion of most of the scholars of the [revealed] Law, and not a sphere as astronomers (ahl al-hay’a) have it, even if this [latter] does not contradict any of the pillars of the Law
