    Hi there

    Did any of the ancients know the following truths:
    1- That the outer space is dark.
    2- That the bottom of the sea is Dark.
    3- A feeling of Chest tightness/constriction the higher the altitude or when you fly.
    If there are any sources that would be great.
    Thanks.
    Hashim

    These would have been obvious simply from observation.

    3- That the Chest gets compressed the higher the altitude or when you fly.
    This doesn't happen.

    I'd guess that you've been reading one of those inane (and false) websites that claim the Quran contains "scientific truths only recently discovered".

    Hi I wanted to share a link with you that shows that chest tightness or congestion is indeed a symptom of severe acute mountain sickness. http://www.nytimes.com/health/guides.../overview.html
    Please let me know what you think.

I can't because I'm a new member. If you google "acute mountain sickness" AND "chest tightness" you should see a few sites that show that, one of them is nytimes. Let me know what you think.

    A feeling of "tightness" is not at all the same thing as actual compression of the chest.

    1. "The ancients" who could see the sky at night would know this.

    2. "The ancients" who lived near deep water would know this.

    3. "The ancients" who lived near mountains would know this.

    I don't think the ancients would have known how it feels when you fly.

    You mean the story of Icarus wasn't a documentary?
