You are equivocating, as I mentioned in Reply #25.

It is fallacious reasoning and will not be tolerated.

I don't quiet understand this

In Wikipedia they wrote "the concept is often used to indicate the lack of anything relevant or significant, or to describe a particularly unimportant thing, event, or object."

Which is exactly what I claimed about using the word "Nothing" in Quran
and my opponents did not agree

If the word often/can be used in English to mean "Almost nothing" then his argument is invalid

SoA, do you understand what equivocation is?

That would be a necessary first step toward responding to being accused of equivocation.
The highest moral human authority is copied by our Gandhi neurons through observation.

Wikipedia isn't a valid source as it can be edited by anyone, even those who have no qualifications in the entry they edit.
Even if it is not, it is common sense

When somebody ask you, what is in your pocket? you can say nothing
While you have air, germs, particles, dust in your pocket
but it is silly to say that

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=San_Pellegrino&diff=prev&oldid=206422658

So the revision of toenail shit water is common sense to you? How about prostitute's armpits?

Like I said, wikipedia can be edited by anyone to say anything. Most of these things do get noticed (like Issac Newton being a waffle), and taken down, however the fact remains that someone can see these fallacious articles and take them at face value, and therefore this makes wikipedia an unreliable, at best, source to cite.

SpineOfSteel,

Wikipedia is reliable enough and it is used here frequently. In this case, however, Servant of Allah needs to use a dictionary.

I want to see the rest of this debate, what happened to it?  Or is SoA stuck in ER for now?

Anyways, I'm pretty sure the growth of Islam didn't happen in that exact order of countries or where that is stated in Islamic teachings.
7th grade, I realize my classmates actually believe this crap.
