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

Limited customization is currently available. 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.

  • There are no further modification options yet available. If you would like modifications for the display, the translation, or anything else, let us know. We may be able to accommodate.

Other Writings

"Was Jesus crucified at the third hour? Yes: Mark 15:25 No: John 19:14-15. Which would you pick, and why?"

Here are the relevant texts (from the NASB): John 19:14 Now it was the day of preparation for the Passover; it was about the sixth hour. And he said to the Jews, "Behold, your King!" Mark 15:25 It was the third hour when they crucified Him. Sometimes, hand-written copies of the same document will not entirely agree with each other. Copies of the Bible are not immune from this. This verse in John is a case in point.

"Do we have free will? Please explain."

Free-will has been defined in several different ways. Some would say that free-will is "the ability to do what we want to do". Under this definition, it's clear that we do have free-will, as all of us (at least on occasion) do what we want. However, another definition of free-will is "the ability to choose, or to choose otherwise". Free-will by this definition has been the subject of debate for centuries. We should note that the issue is not "can we choose?

"What's an easy way to demonstrate that polytheism is false?"

If two equally sovereign creator gods disagree on any point, noncontradiction is no longer a valid test of truth. Without noncontradiction, there can be no test of truth at all, and rational thought goes out the window. But the problem is worse than that. Since the gods are equally sovereign, neither is in control of the other one. This means that neither one can guarantee the behavior of the other one.
