A Short Thread Debunking the Allegations on The Marriage of Prophet (ﷺ) with Ai'sha

(with scientific evidences 🧵)
First of all, this argument to start with is not an academic argument and never will be.

Infact, Non-Muslim academics have rejected this, most of the people who make such are intolerant Islamophobes with no understanding of Science, historical social contrast and presentism.
That being said, this allegation can easily be rejected on the basis of rational scientific and biological premises.

We will use several scientific papers and facts to debunk this allegation and will later justify it with the historical context of the pre-modern society.
First of all, it is imminent to grasp that aging as a concept is the biological framework based on several metabolic markers. It should also be noted that aging is related to abiotic factors like weather, thermal control, etc.

Also, higher the temperature, faster is the aging and metabolism. This is an empirical fact uncovered by Biologists in the recent age, thus people in desert matured the fastest given it's naturally high temperature.

There is also a heap of scientific evidence that as individuals age at different rates, so do they mentally mature differently. In simple terminology, age is not always the function of maturity.

We also have evolutionary as well as ageotypic evidence by a Stanford PhD Biologist which proves that modern humans age slower, and that aging which depends on various ageotypes was way quicker in the pre-modern era.

The above bulk of overwhelming scientific evidence has disproved all the moral claims, and proved how it was a scientifically normal phenomena now to match it with the historical veracity we will quickly present a few sources for the permanent annihilation of this argument.
This is the part of a book written by a French *Atheist* Philosopher, where he clearly states that women would marry by the age of seven, and were often considered old by the time they reached their twenties.
Interestingly enough, almost every major religion approved this practice historically. The early Catholic Church, Vedas and the Talmudic Mishnah approved marriage after Puberty (being as less as 12 or 7 in some cases). This was only abrogated in the early 20th Century.
And that's how easily it is to debunk these double- standard claims, they aren't based on any scientific evidences or historical records but a preponderance of hate, ignorance and bigotry which is both fallacious and weak.

Debunking the "Qura'an and Flat Earth" argument

(with academic references 🧵)
This myth is quite famous within the Islamophobic community, but does the Qur'an really say Earth is flat? This query can be answered from two POVs,
geodesic(3-D) and geodesic (2-D). We will limit ourselves to the use of two verses, 15:19 and 79:30 to disprove the argument.
Before disproving this, it is imminent to understand Physics to get the difference of "shapes" in space-time continuum by an observer. This is a part of "The Brief History of Time",where Hawkings vividly explains how shapes differ in a geodesic framework for different dimensions.
