The Inline Quran

By adding one line of code to your website, you can make every reference to the Quran on your webpage display the full passage on hover, and each reference will also become a link that will take the user to quran.com.

Usage

Basic Example

Make sure that your string of Quranic references begin with either the word "Quran" or the word "Surah". Casing does not matter. Then, at the foot of your webpage, just before the closing body tag, add the following HTML code:

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://presuppositions.org/software/inline-quran/inline-quran.min.js" ></script>

Here is a full example of the code in use in a sample HTML page:

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
     <title>Quranic References</title>
     <meta charset="utf-8" />
</head>
<body>
     <h1>Quranic References</h1>
     <p>We want to refer to the Quran. Therefore, we will. (Quran 3:12-13; 5:7,9,12; 13:2)</p>
 
<script type="text/javascript" src="https://presuppositions.org/software/inline-quran/inline-quran.min.js" ></script>
</body>
</html>

Customization Example

The following example shows how to hide the "about" links that point a user to our website. All of the following code should be placed at the foot of the page, just before the closing body tag.

<script type="text/javascript">
     var inlineQuran = {};
     inlineQuran.settings = {
          displayAbout: false
     };
</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="https://presuppositions.org/software/inline-quran/inline-quran.min.js" ></script>

The Inline Quran can be seen in action on the God Contention website. If you implement it on your website, please let us know and we may link to you.

Other Writings

"If God doesn't change over time, can He know tensed facts? If not, how is He omniscient?"

A tensed fact is a fact that is true in relation to present experience, but has no universal or permanent truth value. "Yesterday was July 26th", "today is Wednesday", or "I got a new job last month" are all tensed facts. Some people believe that God must know tensed facts to be omniscient. William Lane Craig formulates a hypothetical argument that God is not timeless as follows: 1. A temporal world exists. 2. God is omniscient. 3.

"Why did your omniscient and omnipotent god think it was a good idea to use a BOOK to relay his vitally important message to mankind?"

Interestingly enough, the book of Romans informs us that all we need to know about God has been revealed to us individually as part of our created essence, or nature, or being. Romans 1:18-20 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them.

"Does evolution (and with that, the evils that have occurred in the name of natural selection, prior to the fall of man) disprove the existence of God?"

In short, no. There is absolutely no evidence that evolution, in the sense in which this question is referring to it, has ever happened. Evidence of the lack of evidence includes the "theory" of Punctuated Equilibrium, developed by evolutionary paleontologists Niles Eldredge and Stephen Jay Gould. One of the celebrated functions of this theory is its demonstration of why, if evolution were actually true, there would be no fossil evidence for it.
