In reply to the comments (with replies disabled) claiming that the Qur'an "correctly" describes how the Earth formed from clouds of smoke, here's what the perfect book actually says:
Then turned He to the heaven when it was smoke, and said unto it and unto the earth: Come both of you, willingly or loth (unwillingly). They said: We come, obedient. [41:11-12]
In reality Earth did indeed form from "smoke" particles. But these particles came from an exploded star, and according to the Qur'an, stars didn't exist until AFTER the earth was formed. Also, the Earth doesn't have a will of its own. And it can't speak.
