Oh, go ahead and leave the copied entries... chances are we will all be right. Senbon will be able to see who gave the answers first, and you will be able to bask in gaining knowledge without even trying. Cribbing from a Certified Genius(TM) is a perfectly acceptable way to get an education.

As a tie breaker- let's have an essay question... Senbon should pick one of the answers and have the contestants provide a defense of why the answer is correct, citing historical references. Or make them distill kerosene.

Reading this makes me think "Oh how the mighty have fallen"  Tongue it's like conservative religious extremism ruins everything, or something.

1. The Quran talks about the Lost city of Iram and the Syrian city of Ebla has records of business done with Iram.

2. No.

3. The dirham weighs 2.975 grams of silver.

4. Galen of Pergamon

5. The University of  Al-Qarawiyyin was founded in 859 by some chick named  Fatima al-Fihria.  I don't think "Universities" back then were the same concept as Universities today, but this is the answer I think you are looking for. Smiley

6. The word "yawm" is mentioned 365 times in the Quran.  Wow, cool.

7. Jacques Cousteau.

8. Muḥammad ibn Mūsā al-Khwārizmī

9. "Who discovered kerosene" seems like it should be "who invented kerosene" and the answer isAbraham Gesner.  But Rockefeller saved the whales (bonus points for this answer, right?).  Also, you are asking questions about Islam and Gesner wasn't an Arab or even a Muslim as far as I know.  More google searching, stand by.  

....

Wait a second, now I find that Muhammad ibn Zakariyā Rāzī supposedly was the first to distill kerosene.  That means wikipedia LIED to me?!?!

10.  The Quran supports equal rights for men and women to be blamed for the Fall of mankind, apparently.  Both.

11.  Everyone else said "fire".  I'm not sure what the question was, but I'll go with that.

12.  Wikipedia says  Jabir Ibn Hayyan (Geber), but might be lying to me again.

13.  Yemen

14. You're not allowed to eat pork in Islam.  But there may be exceptions for accidental ingestion.

Check this out: The Quran 2:173 says  He hath only forbidden you dead meat, and blood, and the flesh of swine, and that on which any other name hath been invoked besides that of Allah. But if one is forced by necessity, without wilful disobedience, nor transgressing due limits,- then is he guiltless. For Allah is Oft-forgiving Most Merciful.

So if you are starving and that's all there is to eat, sounds like it's ok.  Or if you don't eat more than a certain amount ("due limits")?

15. Angels

16. Apparently there's some debate on this.  I found some Jews and Christians who dispute the translation and interpretation, blah blah blah Imma say out of that messy argument.  I think the answer you are looking for is "the Dead Sea", which apparently is the lowest point on earth.  I didn't know that before.  The more you know...

That took a lot of work I had to look up almost everything.
