For the fact mistakes and errors based on themes, see Part II, Chapter 1, Subchapter 3, Sections 1 through 16.
Comments numbered by 3 numbers (included 00 or 0) a few places followed by one small letter = clear mistakes. Comments numbered by 00 or 0 followed by 1, 2 or 3 letters (big or small) = likely mistake.
001 81/1: “When the sun (with its spacious light) is folded up - - -.” A solid sphere cannot be folded up – it can become dark (in many billion years), which may be the underlying meaning, but it cannot be folded up. It seems that Muhammad believed the sun was a flat disc. Any god had known better.
002 81/1+ 4 + 5: “When the sun (with its spacious light) is folded up (becomes dark*) - - - the she-camels, 10 months with young, are left untended (and*) When the wild beasts are herded together (in human habitations) - - -”. In some 5 billion years the sun will become a red giant, according to science. The Earth will either be swallowed by it or circle just above its surface. If Earth survives, it will then have a surface temperature of some 2ooo+ C as the surface of a red giant is 2000-3000 centigrades - and all camels, wild beasts and humans will be gone billions of years before. The Earth itself will only be dry cinder. From then it will take many billions of years before the sun becomes dark (it will not go nova as it is too small by a factor of ca. 12 - it will become dark). Very wrong time factor. Any god had known.
003 81/2: “When (at the Last Day*) the stars (here it is talk about the real stars, not shooting stars*) fall (on Earth*), loosing their lustre - - -”. The stars cannot fall on earth - never according to science and according to reality. Theoretically Earth can fall into the sun – and may do so in 5 billion years time – but not "vica versa" (it will be the Earth that really moves, not the sun).
004 81/19: “Verily, this is the word of a most honourable Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -.” If a man that is a thief/robber, extorter, womanizer, child molester (Aishah through many years from she was 9 years old), rapist, betrayer, torturer, murderer, mass murderer, war monger and more is a “most honourable Messenger” - - - well, in that case we will not like to meet a normal messenger, not to mention an unhonourable one. It may seem that Islam have a somewhat special standard for ethics and moral.
005 81/27: “- - - the Worlds - - -.” Well, the 7 (flat) worlds of Muhammad simply never are found by science. See 65/12b.
006 81/29: “- - - the Worlds - - -.” See 81/27 just above and 56/12b.
001 82/1: “When the Sky is cleft asunder - - -.” How can vacuum be cleft asunder?
001 83/6: “- - - the Worlds - - -.” See 81/27 above.
002 83/13: “- - - Our (Allah’s*) Signs - - -.” There exists no sign clearly from Allah, neither in the Quran, nor anywhere else. And see 2/99.
001 84/1: “When the Sky is rent asunder - - -.” Vacuum cannot be rent asunder. Any god had known.
***002 84/15+16: “For his Lord (Allah*) was ever watchful of him (non-Muslim*)! So I (Muhammad*) do call to witness the ruddy glow of Sunset - - -”. A serious one - here it once more is Muhammad who is speaking - in what is said to be the copy of the Mother Book (43/4) in Heaven, made of Allah and existed from eternity. How is that possible?
003 84/23: “But Allah is full of Knowledge - - -.” Not if the Quran is representative for that knowledge.
001 85/9: “- - - heavens - - -.” Plural and wrong. See 2/22a.
002 85/19: “- - - rejecting (the Truth) (the Quran*)!” See 40/75 and 41/12.
*003 85/21: “- - - a Glorious Quran - - -”. A book with that many mistakes, contradictions, and other hallmarks of cheating and deceiving is not very glorious. Also see 40/75 and 41/12.
Surah 81 – 85: At least 15 mistakes.
001 86/6: “He (man*) is created from a drop (of sperm*) emitted - - -”. See 80/19 + 6/2.
**002 86/6+7: “He (man*) is created from a drop (of sperm*) emitted - Proceeding from between the backbone and the ribs.” Glorious: Muhammad did not even know that sperm comes from the testes - the “stones” - and placed the source inside the body and half a meter too high up!!!! And a place where it is too hot for production of semen. (The testes are in scrotum outside the main body because it needs slightly under body temperature to be able to produce semen). It is in accordance with Greek medicine – Hippocrates f. ex. thought the sperm passed through the kidneys. Even a baby god knows better. Who composed the Quran? And what is Islam – and it’s Muslims - if the Quran is faked?
001 87/3: “- - - and granted guidance (the Quran*) - - -”. There is little reliable guidance in a book full of mistakes and hallmarks of cheating and deceiving. See 40/75 and 41/12.
*002 87/19: “The Books of Abraham - - - ”. Abraham had no books according to science – and definitely not in plural. Besides a nomad of 4000 years ago, hardly knew how to read. (There exists, though, “The Testament of Abraham” – a very much made up (apocryphal) scripture.)
001 88/20: “And at the earth, how it is spread out?” – the flat Earth is indicated again. See 79/30 and others above.
001 90/19: “- - - Signs - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39 above.
Surah 86 – 90: At least 6 mistakes.
001 91/2: “By the Moon as she (the moon*) follows him (the sun*)”. The moon does not follow the sun - it only looks like that as seen from the Earth. Does Allah live on Earth? At least it seems like the maker of the Quran did so.
*002 91/4: “By the Night as it conceals it (the sun*)”. The night does not conceal the sun - there is night because the Earth makes a shade. It is 180 degrees different from what Muhammad told: There is night because the night conceals the sun. Any god knew that. Besides: The night simply is lack of sunlight – it is physically impossible for the night to conceal the sun. Any god had known that, too. Then who made the Quran?
003 91/6 “By the Earth and its (wide) expanse - - -”. The Earth is no wide expanse (it is known from other places in the Quran that Earth is a wide, flat expanse), but a sphere.
**001 92/1: “By (start of an oath*) the Night as it conceals (the light) - - -”. Wrong - it is Earth that conceals the light and causes the night. Any deity knows this - Muhammad not. (See 91/4).
*002 92/3: “By (the mystery of) the creation of male and female - - -”. No mystery for us, no mystery for a god - a large mystery for Muhammad. (According to Hadith he thought that if the woman climaxed first, it became a girl, but if the man climaxed first, it became a boy – and boys of course were best.) Who made the Quran?
003 92/16: “- - - Truth (the Quran) - - -”. See 40/75 and 41/12.
**001 95/4: “We (Allah*) have indeed created man in the best of moulds”. Wrong - and it tells something that the Quran strengthens (with the word “indeed”) a statement - a loose one as so often - that is wrong. Man is far from made in the best of moulds. Many “construction details” could have been better - our ability to stand wear and tear f. ex., and our ability to see in the dark, and more. Also our ability to tackle illnesses is far from perfect - and if our brain could think of more than one thing at a time, we would be more efficient. Etc., etc., etc.
Surah 91 – 95: At least 7 mistakes.
**001 96/2: “(Allah*) Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood - - -”. Neither man (see 6/2) nor a man (see 75/37) was made out of blood - congealed or not – even though some of the old Greeks believed so, and from whom Muhammad may have stolen this idea. But the start of a human or an animal - the sperm cell and the egg cell and then the zygote - are so small that it is not to be seen with your eyes only, in the blood and gore in a carcass or in a slaughtered animal. Muhammad believed that the semen was a seed which planted in a woman grew into a clot of blood that grew into a foetus. It may be worth mentioning that the statement in this verse, is like Aristotle’s theory. But any god had known better. Who composed the Quran? And why do Muslims never mention that so many of the “facts” in the Quran are in accordance with Greek and Persian (wrong) science at that time?
**002 96/11: “- - - if he (a man*) is on (the road of) Guidance?” Is there guidance in a book with more than 1700 points with mistaken facts, at least 200 likely mistaken facts, more than 100 linguistic mistakes in the Arab edition according to linguists, lots of loose statements and lots of invalid “signs” and “proofs” - the hallmark of cheaters and deceivers? Not to mention 200+ contradictions, 100+ abrogations and 400+ cases of unclear language in the Quran – the claimed lack of which is Islam’s only strongly claimed (but never proved) proof for divine origin of the book!! - No; no real guidance. No evidence and no good guidance.
003 96/13: “- - - if he (a man*) denies (Truth (the Quran*)) - - -”. See 40/75 and 41/12.
001 98/1a: “Those (non-Muslims*) who reject (Truth (the Quran*)) - - -”. See 40/75 and 41/12.
002 98/1b: “- - - Clear Evidence - - -”. This means the Quran: See 96/11, 40/75 and 41/12.
003 98/4: “- - - Clear Evidence - - -”. This means the Quran: See 96/11, 40/75 and 41/12.
004 98/6: “ Those who reject (Truth (the Quran*)) - - -.” With all that is wrong in the Quran, the book at best is partly the truth.
Surah 96 – 100: At least 7 mistakes.
001 103/3: “- - - teaching of the Truth - - -”. See 40/75 and 41/12 - - - and others.
001 105/3+4: “- - - Han (Allah*) sent against them Flights of Birds, Striking them with stones of baked clay.” This refers to an attack from Abyssinia in 570 AD. The vice king Abrhah or Abrah, lost much of his army because of a virulent illness - perhaps smallpox - and had to return home without attacking Mecca. The troops were NOT killed by stones from birds. Muslim scholars often agree this is unlikely, but sometimes try to “explain” the clear text and the as clear mistake away by some linguistic gymnastics that includes that the Arab word for stone and the one for writings are not dissimilar, and if they think that these words have been mixed up (in a holy book sent down by Allah, and without mistakes), and then say the meaning is metaphorical (in a book the Allah says shall be understood as it is written), it may not mean stones, but hard physical strikes. Muslims frequently have to use far out “explanations” like this to try to camouflage mistakes. But if there is a linguistic mistake here, according to Muslims – how many more linguistic mistakes are there in the Quran?
00a 112/3: “He (Allah*) begetteth not - - -.” Well, if Allah should happen to be the same god as Yahweh all the same, Jesus many times called him “father” and many times said he was the son of Yahweh – and lots/most of those times it is clear it was meant in the real meaning. In the NT it is said at least 163 times that Yahweh was father of Jesus, and at least 66 times that Jesus was the son of Yahweh. It is said nothing about how the relationship started. If true, there are 3 possibilities:
Surah 101 – 114: At least 2 mistakes + 1 likely mistake.
Total for all the Quran: At least 1776 mistakes + 213 likely mistakes.
In reality there are more. It is our educated guess that a real in depth analyses will end at 2ooo+ points with mistaken facts, as there are points we have skipped because the proofs were more complicated, there are the likely mistakes – a lot of them will turn out to be real mistakes – there are the borderline cases we have skipped because we were not sure, and not least: We hardly have seen all the mistakes.
In addition there are the other mistakes, errors and wrongs.
In this edition (2009) we have most of the mistaken facts. There are three categories that are missing:
This 2009 edition is planned to be the final one as for mistaken facts – it is far more than enough to prove 100% and more that something is seriously wrong with Muhammad, with the Quran, and with Islam. We may add some more mistakes from grammar, orthography, etc., and some more contradictions, abrogations, etc., but for mistaken facts we think this is enough. Though if we are made aware of mistakes we have overlooked, they will be added.
If we have made mistakes - but real mistakes and not f. ex. just divergences with the Bible - we have not found, please inform us by Internet and our answering box. We will add them later.
NB: If you find any mistakes anywhere, please inform us. If it is a real mistake, it will be corrected.
NB, NB, NB:
1. Read first the 2 small chapters "Some Essentials for how the Quran is to be read and understood" (VII-10-1) and "The Quran is to be understood literally if nothing else is indicated" (VII-10-2).
2. http://www.1000mistakes.com is blocked by many Muslim authorities. To debate with persons in such areas, cut and paste what you want from the pages and send it under titles different from http://www.1000mistakes.com.
3. http://www.1000mistakes.com is one of 9 pages which Muslim organisetions warned especially against in 2008 and 2009 - it could make especially procelytes lose their belief in Islam; correct and "down-to-the-earth" information works. In this connection it is worth noting that in the "warning" http://www.1000mistakes.com was one of 3 which neither was accused of bringing wrong facts, nor of being a hate page.
4. Comment 141 (to verse 6/149) in “The Message of the Quran” (see point 5) explains (translated from Swedish) about Allah's claimed omniscience vs. man's claimed free will:
“With other words: The real connection between Allah’s knowledge about the future (and consequently about the unavoidable in what is to happen in the future*) on one side and man’s relatively (!!*) free will on the other – two statements that seems to contradict each other – lies outside what is possible for humans to understand, but as both statement are made from Allah (in the Quran*) both must be true”. Unbelievable. Blind belief is the only correct and intelligent way of life, even in the face of the utterly impossible!!
5. And an afterthought: In the book “The Message of the Quran”, certified by Al-Azhar Al-Sharif Islamic Research Academy in Cairo (one of the 2-3 top universities in the Muslim world on such subjects) in a letter dated 27. Dec. 1998, it is admitted rather reluctantly that there are no proofs for Allah, and that it is not possible to prove him. An additonal point here is that if there is no proof for Allah and impossible to prove him, automatically there also is no proof for, and impossible to prove Muhammad's claimed connection to a god. And if there is no Allah and/or no connection between Muhammad and a god, what then is Islam?
6. Further: All the mistakes, contradictions, etc. in that book prove 100% that the Quran is not made by an omniscient god - no god makes such and so many mistakes, etc. If then Islam is a made up religion, what then about all the Muslims who have been prohibitted from looking for a real religion (if such one exists)? And where will they in case wake up after living and practising such an inhuman war religion like Islam is according to the Quran (and to Hadiths), if there is a second life somewhere? - Hell or Paradise?
7. NB and PS: No matter how sure you are about something, if it is not proved, it is not knowledge, only belief or strong belief, and can be wrong. Only what is proved or possible to prove is knowledge.
(As http://www.1000mistakes.com is blocked in many Muslim areas - which shows they are afraid of it and lack arguments (if they had real arguments for http://www.1000mistakes.com is wrong, blocking was unneccessary) - "cut and paste" whatever you want from it and send if you want to inform or to debate there. Remember to omit the name http://www.1000mistakes.com).
PS: If we are blocked centrally - f. ex. by spam (there is too much at times already from unfriendly sources) we will reopen with new address somewhere else, and announce the new address om f. ex. http://www.topix.com/forum/religion/islam. Also if your comments to us do not reach us, any comments posted on the thread "What is it with http://www.1000mistakes.com ?" (or make a page containing "1000 mistakes" in the title yourself if you want) on that forum will be read by us - it is a big international debate page.
Please inform all and everybody and all relevant fora - f. ex. Internet pages for debate or information - about the address http://www.1000mistakes.com. It is information that is urgently needed by many, not least by Muslims. No god made a book with so many mistakes and other wrongs - and if the Quran and Islam are made up by humans or dark forces, where are the followers of this inhumanly dark and brutal war religion heading for in a possible next life?
