Wrong. A queen ant can have wings. The queen is female. You are wrong. Your quran is wrong.

We've been telling him that for many pages now. On both points. Along with terminal wrongness, apparently the Qur'an confers deafness as well.

There are three things about the Koran that maybe you can answer to me.

1: If the religion was ment to be universal, why is there no provision in the commandments for ramadan dealing with day length variation? If you are lucky near the polar circles you can eat all day long, if you are unlucky you cannot eat at all.

2: If your god is so all knowing, why did he not give the verses explaining how to make simple antibiotics and how viruses work?

3: Why give a revelation to a single obscure person in an insignificant part of the world? Giving the same revelation to all people all across the world would be actual evidence of a god right?

• For the word "eat": "Kuli" is for females; "Kul" is for males. The Quran used "Kuli" (females).
•For the word "follow a path": "Usluki" is for females; "Usluk" is for males. The Quran used "Usluki" (females).
•For the word "their bellies": "butuniha" is for females; "butunihim" is for males. The Quran used "butuniha" (females).

This information about sexes from the Quran is amazing. Let's try other creatures. How about the Slime mold?

I'll just bet the Quran has it covered!

Link for the infidels!

In English the word to describe this is "coincidence"

You put (for females) into the verse but the words in brackets do not appear in the Quran.

Are you kidding me. Announced.

These are signs for those who contemplate.

************

Then eat [Kuli(female)]

follow ["Usluki"(females)]

"their bellies": ["butuniha"(females)]

This is like your in English "he "she" "it"

In Turkish we say only "o" (he, she, it in same word).

In Arabic, such acts as eating and following up are expressed separately in females and males.

In short, the verse says female bees in the original Arabic.
