    What is scientifically incorrect of the following?:

    [49:12] O ye who believe! let not one people deride another people, who may be better than they, nor let women deride other women, who may be better than they. And defame not your own people, nor call one another by nicknames. Bad indeed is evil reputation after the profession of belief; and those who repent not are the wrongdoers.
    [49:13] O ye who believe! avoid most of suspicions; for suspicion in some cases is a sin. And spy not, nor back-bite one another. Would any of you like to eat the flesh of his brother who is dead? Certainly you would loathe it. And fear Allah, surely, Allah is Oft-Returning with compassion and is Merciful.
    [49:14] O mankind, We have created you from a male and a female; and We have made you into tribes and sub-tribes that you may recognize one another. Verily, the most honourable among you, in the sight of Allah, is he who is the most righteous among you. Surely, Allah is All-knowing, All-Aware.

    Please
    Regards

    These are claims and commands. But there is no evidence that these claims are true. A scientist would say: "Maybe these claims are true. But until I can figure out to do experiments to see whether I can find evidence for these claims, AND these experiments can be repeated many times and give the same results, then maybe we could create some theory to explain this demonstrate-able, repeatable occurrence."

    I would say that this has been proven to be wrong with repeated observation and experimentation. Speculation and suspicion of the assumptions made in the past have led to immense progress in understanding the cosmos.

    Nothing, since it is not a scientific statement.

    The first two sentences, do you believe these have something to do with science? As a whole, I think you are confusing science with something it doesn't deal with.

    That is the point, science does not deal in everything, it has limitations, out of those limitations, it does not work and it must not work. Out of these boundaries it is simple ignorant.

    But ... you are unable to show that there is anything (save your belief) that is outside of science's boundries.
    But you are unable to make a logical case that anything exists that is outside of science's boundaries. The best you can do is say that we do not know something and then make an argument from ignorance.

    Please give one's understanding of the word "science", not from a lexicon. Please

    It's amazing to see somebody ask so many questions about a specific subject, but never learn anything about it. It's quite amazing really.

    Let's try: in this context, anything that would not be characterized as supernatural.

    Indeed, science is not about matters of taste, political or religious preference.

    You are right. Science doesn't address *everything*. In fact, it doesn't address many of the most important things.

    Science is concerned with truths that can be tested and verified. That is it. It does not deal with matters of taste, for example. It does not deal with matters of aesthetics. It does not deal with matters of morality. It can *inform* all of those subjects. But it cannot say what you *should* do. It can only say what the consequences of your actions are likely to be. You still have to decide on your value system to decide what to do.

    There's nothing in the above which is scientifically incorrect.
    Exhortations to behave a certain way based upon mythical claims are not disprovable.

    All that does not pertain to science is not necessarily mythical. Sorry

    There appears to be a weak echo in here.

    Pretty good.

    But I would like to also add, that science don't deal with the supernatural, the paranormal, fantasy, and superstition belief.
