Egg shaped planets do exist...

Egg shaped planets do exist...
Wasp 12b is a really curious planet:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WASP-12b

"The planet is so close to WASP-12 that the star's tidal forces are distorting it into an egg shape and pulling away its atmosphere..."

So the Quran was right after all...? Oh wait, the Quran says the Earth is egg shaped...never mind then. While we're on the subject of the Quran and astronomy, I'd like to highlight this astronomically inaccurate verse:
http://www.quranx.com/53.49
Quran 53:49
That He is the Lord of Sirius (the Mighty Star);

The Quran forgets to say that Sirius is actually two stars. The Quran seems to ignore the fact that Sirius is a binary star system. Whoops! Wouldn't that have been an amazing opportunity to confirmation that Allah is real?

What? A book of bullshit wrong about astronomical facts? Who'd have thought it.

But... what if... WE'RE really on Wasp 12b and the planet we think is called Wasp 12b is really EARTH?! Bow Down Thinking Worship (large)

Don't worry, my friend.  If this be the end, then so shall it be.

Yep, and if that fact had been mentioned in the Quran, that would really be remarkable, as it's a binary that is notoriously difficult to resolve - it would have been impossible to resolve in the 1st millennium CE, and for much of the 2nd.

You know what's tempting for me to do? Make up my own Quran miracle claim, which I would know is false, and see how many people believe me. But I could never allow myself to knowingly lie to people like that.

Maybe I'm the first to notice this...

but Pluto is now known to have the heart-shaped region.

Doesn't anyone think this is PROOF POSITIVE, Venus/Aphrodite is the True Goddess we should all be worshiping?

I mean, come on, a HEART! What are the odds? Goddess of love, valentines day=hearts, hearts=love, etc.

PROOF POSITIVE! Us hardened atheists are always asking for a sign. Well there is your sign buddy. Right there on Pluto where anyone with $750 million and centuries of technological advancement can see!

Looks more like an upside-down butt to me, tbh.

All hail Anusius?

Well, some modern theories on the origin of the heart shape suggest it's a representation of a female's buttocks (or vulva)
