Even if this is true, so what?
Note, months don't last 30 days.

Oh wow. 365, 30, 12, 7, 19. Those numbers are the number of times certain words are used in the Quran? Just mind blowing.
The Bible is full of interest. It has noble poetry in it; and some clever fables; and some blood-drenched history; and some good morals; and a wealth of obscenity; and upwards of a thousand lies.

So there is (if true) another curious coincidence in a religious text. What can we learn from this?

Anything?

Yup

A quick google reveals the following

"Of the 475 total occurrences of all forms of "yawm," 3 are
in the dual and 27 are in the plural, leaving 445 in the
singular."

The lunar Hijri calendar (you know, the actual calendar used by muslems) has 354 or 355 days. Not 365.

It's amazing what 5 minutes with google can tell you.

It's amazing that theists continue to jump on anything that looks good for their chosen religion and decide that it is true without applying any critical thinking or checking if it has been debunked before declaring it as fact.

But then, the people who do those things tend not to be theists, I wonder why?

If fact-checking is not your friend, then perhaps you should consider the possibility that your line of thinking is possibly not on speaking terms with reality.

I wonder what the penalty is supposed to be in the afterlife for spreading falsehoods about the holy book, and making its believers look bad. Can't be much, since the practise seems to be so common among those who promote faith.

You use as a source, without checking, a site that talks like this in its CONCLUSION:-

"Again, the Noble Quran and Islam are filled with scientific statements and notions. These are statements of Allah Almighty describing how He created things on earth and in the Universe. What's most amazing is that all of these scientific statements and notions had been proven to be in perfect agreement with science and our modern-day scientific discoveries. Allah Almighty made the Noble Quran be Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) Everlasting Divine Miracle and proof for Prophethood. The Holy Book certainly stood the test of time 1,500 years ago with Its Claims, Prophecies and Miraculous language eloquence, and it does again and again in our day today with Its overwhelming agreement with science and discoveries that were not known to man 1,500 years ago."


Absolute twaddle. It is astounding that people can still get away with making claims like that, probably only because they have a captive audience who will not bother to look for any other viewpoint or evidence. The "science" in the Koran/Quran is laughable and it takes the most ridiculous contortions of thinking to try and make excuses for it. Where are the modern scientific discoveries of the Islamic world if they had such a head start? They haven't figured out how to mix salt water and fresh water yet (hint - one container).

the penalty is definitely punishment,it just depends on the intention of the doer,if he/she is ignorant with little knowledge,he is innocent but doing it on purpose is different.
