spiderwoman
the quran has may reference to scientific facts .

and that is one of the types of verses that help those who have doubt to beleive that the quran is from Allah

and here is one of the fact

the female spider is the one who build the spider house and the male spider can help but the main job is done by she.



"The likeness of those who choose other patrons than Allah is as the likeness of the spider when she taketh unto herself a house, and lo! the frailest of all houses is the spider's house, if they but knew." The Noble Quran 29:41

Just goes to show you what your holy book doesn't know, a spider's thread is much stronger than a thread of steel and your holy book can't tell you that.

Oh please. MALE SPIDERS BUILD WEBS TOO. Plus, a spider's web is anything BUT frail. It's stronger than steel! Tell you what, come on into the 21st century with the rest of us and learn some real science, not just the claptrap your 'holy' book tells you.

Well, what the OP said is a fact, too. Spider's 'house'(web) is INDEED the frailest of all houses. He is comparing houses, not web to steel? Can you honestly say that if your house, which ironically is made of steel, is destroyed side by side to a spider's web, by using a high pressured water or a powerful fan, the web will win? But nice to know that spider's web is stronger than steel. Wow.

Though there is an alternate version of the Mary Jane Watson character from the Spiderman series where she is Spiderwoman, this is not a Marvel construct, so we will never see this on film either.

While it might be a cool spin for any Spiderman 4 that might be made, I wouldn't count on it.

A spiders web is not a house...It is a trap, and they usually build a new one each day...Did you find this info in your quran?

Allah is perfect.

The Quran is perfect.

read the verse again

the verse says " the frailest of all houses is the spider's house"

and not "the flimsiest threads".

The spider's home remains to be the weakest and frailest of all homes despite its strong threads.

Quran(4:82)
"Do they not then consider the Quran carefully?
If it had been from [any] other than Allah , they would have found within it much contradiction.
"


Imam Ismail Ibn kathir said in his commentary what means :

( Allah commands them to contemplate about the Qur'an and forbids them from ignoring it, or ignoring its wise meanings and eloquent words.

Allah states that there are no inconsistencies, contradictions, conflicting statements or discrepancies in the Qur'an, because it is a revelation from the Most-Wise, Worthy of all praise. )

So, every word in Quran couldn't be replaced. Every word has its own meaning.

By the way, the title is striking
