Yeah, basically since they know how much science, logic and reason are valued in the West people like Zakir Naik will lie despite not even speaking arabic! There are plenty of preachers changing the words of the bible and taking vague Hindu Vedas references and claiming modern science can be found. People like Ken Ham and Ray Comfort...
If you look at virtually the entire history of Islam, particularly that of early Muslims who followed the exact pure dialect, but also those all the way up to the 21st century in many area's you will see that they re-state incorrect but common beliefs about the universe.
Early Muslims didn't talk to each other in complete confusion about what the meaning of words were, as if any language was as changeable as the Qurans Arabic then communication would have broken down and society would not function due to constant serious misunderstandings.
