LYING FORELOCKS OR LYING CEREBRUM?
Quran verse 96:15 says a man was dragged by his forelock [of hair on his head], but the immediately following verse says the forelock was lying and sinful, implying that hair can think and talk. Substituting cerebrum for forelock does not help much; being dragged by the prefrontal area of the cerebrum does not make as much sense as being dragged by his hair.

OTHER TALKING BODY PARTS
Quran verses 41:20-22 say that your skin, eyes and ears will testify against you.on Judgement Day. Quran verse 41:21 says “And they shall say unto their skins, wherefore do ye bear witness against us? They shall answer, God hath caused us to speak, who giveth speech unto all things”. (George Sale translation)

HUMAN EVOLUTION AND THE QURAN

start of synopsis >

HUMAN FOSSILS
Quran chapter 17 verses 49-51 say that even if a man is turned to stone, Allah can resurrect him on Judgement Day. Harun Yahya claims this is a scientific revelation about fossils. Actually, it likely refers to the myth that anyone looking at the face of the Gorgon named Medusa would be turned to stone.
EARLY HUMANS
The correct interpretation of Quran verse 76:1 might be that no legends are remembered about the activities of man during the long span of time from the creation of Adam until the time of Nuh (Noah).
George Sale translated the verse as “Did there not pass over man a long space of time; during which he was a thing not worthy of remembrance?”. Muslims respect Adam, and are reluctant to call Adam a “primitive” man.
Asad instead interpreted the verse as meaning there was a long span of time before Allah created the first man.

Quran verse 18:90 in Arabic merely says the people wore no clothes, but Nuri & Hoque adx that the people were “barbarous”.
MAN CREATED IN STAGES
Quran verse 71:14 refers to the layers of the seven heavens, but has been taken out of context and mistranslated by Rashad Khalifa and others as being about Allah making improved versions of man.
ARABS MADE TALLER
Quran verse 7:69 says that Allah made man considerably taller [at the time of Mohammed] than a tribe descended from Noah. Edip Yüksel mistranslated wazādakum as “improved” instead of “taller”.
NEW IMPROVED VERSIONS OF MAN
Edip Yüksel mistranslated verse 32:9 as “He evolved him”. The actual meaning of the Arabic word sawwāhu is fashioned or shaped.

MAKING BABIES IN THE QURAN

THIS POST CONTAINS SEXUAL CONTENT WHICH MAY OFFEND SOME PEOPLE.

WILL IT BE A BOY OR A GIRL?
Some Muslim websites interpret the pair of Quran verses 53:45-46 as saying that the sex of a baby is determined by the sperm of the father. What the WILL IT BE A BOY OR A GIRL?
Muslim websites interpret the pair of Quran verses 53:45-46 as saying that the sex of a baby is determined by the sperm of the father. What the Muslim websites fail to mention is that this pair of verses claims the fetus is created from the semen, and fails to mention the contribution of the female’s egg cell.
SEMEN
Quran verse 86:7 says semen is produced from between the lower ribs and the backbone. Nuri & Hoque defended this verse, claiming it described the location of the testes prior to the testes descending to the scrotum. Actually, the testes descend to the scrotum in the late fetal stages before the baby is born. The Study Quran mistranslated the word “ribs” as “pelvic arch”, removing the science controversy in the verse.

HEARING IN YOUR SLEEP IN THE QURAN

start of synopsis >

Quran verse 18:11 is about the 7 young men who were sealed inside a cave, but Allah saved them from starvation by putting them into a sleep state for many years. A Muslim website claims that this verse reveals a scientific fact, unknown then, that hearing is the only sense that is active while you are asleep, thus making them deaf would cause the men to sleep for many years.
The Muslim website fails to take into consideration the circadian rhythm. Even if you are deaf and in a dark cave, your natural body clock will wake you.

The Romans knew 2000 years ago that we hear in our sleep.

EMBRYOLOGY IN THE QURAN

MOORE AND ZINDANI
In 1982 Yemeni cleric/herbalist sheikh Abdul-Majeed A. Zindani deliberately provided false hadith and Quran translations to Canadian embryology professor Keith L. Moore, duping Dr. Moore and several other Canadian and American non-Muslim embryologists into believing that the Quran and hadiths revealed modern scientific facts about embryology.
The gullible Professor Moore said “This proves to me that Muhammad must have been a messenger of God or Allah”. Some Muslim websites falsely reported that Moore converted to Islam.
Zindani’s “looks like a chewed substance” stage of an embryo was changed to “bite-sized” by several clueless translators of the verse.
Another controversy is that the Arabic says that bones are clothed in flesh at a stage following the stage of an embryo when the bones are formed, implying that all bones are created before any muscles are. Some translators deliberately mistranslated the verse to omit the words “and then”.
Dr. Keith L. Moore defended the “clothed in the following stage” traditional interpretation by saying that each bone when it is created does not have any muscle attached to it until many hours later.
THE PROPHET MOHAMMED
The prophet Mohammed could have learned what is mentioned in the Quran about stages of development of the embryo from his Christian physician companion Harith Ibn Kalada, who taught at the Jundishapur medical school, where the medicine of Galen of Pergamon was taught.

FINGERPRINTS
Edip Yüksel falsely claims that Quran verse 75:4 reveals the scientific fact that no two people have identical fingerprints.
Actually, Quran verse 75:4 (John Medows Rodwell translation) says “his very finger tips are We able evenly to replace”. The verse is saying that after you die, Allah is able to restore your entire body whole again.
A footnote by Nuri & Hoque interprets the verse as describing man’s opposable thumbs.
BODY IS OVER 50% WATER
Quran verse 21:30 says that Allah made every living thing from water. Muslim websites interpret this verse as a revelation that over half of the weight of a human body is composed of water.
