Allah in the Quran, Chapter 36

 

Chapter 36

NATURAL phenomena USED AS CLAIMED "SIGNS" OR "PROOFS"

 

001 Muhammad did not have one single proof neither for his claimed god, nor for his god's claimed power, nor for his own claimed connection to that god. He got many requests for documentation or proofs, but was unable to bring anything but fast talk and "explanations" for why the god was unable to prove anything - and at least some of those "explanations" any person as intelligent and knowing as much about humans as Muhammad did, had to know were untrue.

In spite of this and in spite of his fast talk about skeptics who would not believe no matter what miracles or proofs Allah would produce, in spite of all this there are two facts which show that Muhammad reckoned proofs to be essential and valuable:

002 One is the fact that Muhammad demanded and demanded proofs from all opponents. He was unable to prove even a mosquito of his own teaching, but any opponent should prove his words. These strong demands for proofs show that he reckoned proofs to be of central value in a debate or case.

003 The other is that Muhammad claimed literally hundreds of "signs" - Quran-speak for "proofs" - and some "proofs" for Allah and his power. This he had not made up unless he meant that proofs had/have value.

004 And what kind of "signs" and "proofs" did he use? To a large degree natural phenomena which he without any kind of documentation or proof claimed Allah had done or made. The sorry problem, though, is that as long as he never was able to prove things really were made or done by Allah, every single such claim was and is totally without any value as a "sign" for Allah or as a proof for him. The plain fact is that any believer in any religion could and can make just the same claims just as easy - and just as valueless - for his or her god(s), as long as they can do like Muhammad: Evade all requests for proofs, and only use nice claims for that his god had caused it.

005 And take a look at the sheer volume of Muhammad's claims - literally hundreds (there are more than we have listed - read the Quran and you will find). Also Jesus mentioned the power of his god, but not maniacally like Muhammad.

006 And we are back to the old and sorry facts: Who is it who most strongly feels he needs to prove how truthful he is and who is most eager to do so? The cheat and deceiver, the swindler and charlatan. And who is it who has to resort to fast talk and invalid "indications", "signs", and "proofs". Again the cheat and deceiver, the swindler and charlatan.

Below is a long list of natural phenomena, etc. Muhammad used to legitimize himself, his claimed god, and his new religion. Just enjoy the sheer volume of it - and as said the list is not complete.

007 It looks like Muhammad felt he needed much legitimating.

But by using never proved "proofs" and "signs" like these, he proved he had no real proofs. If he had had, he had used them instead.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

####### Another - and serious - point is that to "explain" that the Quran means something different from what it really says, is to corrupt it.

Also: What is sure, is that no god ever made a holy book as full of wrong facts, other errors, contradictions, unclear language, etc. like the Quran. #### Besides: Which one of the 20-30 known versions accepted by Islam of the Quran (see 15/9c) - if any - is in case the correct one?

Finally: Always when you read the Quran, Hadiths, and other Islamic books, you should remember that Muhammad accepted the use of and himself used dishonesty in many forms in words and deeds. Even if the names are younger, it was he who institutionalized dishonesty like al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie), Kitman (the lawful half-truth), Hilah (the lawful pretending/circumventing), the use of deceit ("war is deceit" - and "everything" is war), betrayal (f.x. the peace delegation from Khaybar), and even the disuse of oaths (2/225, 5/89, 16/91, 66/2 - and the star case 3/54 (if Allah could cheat, cheating is ok)), which also includes the disuse of words and promises, as they are weaker than oaths = when oaths can be disused, so can words and promises. On top of this it is very clear from the Quran and all other central Islamic books, that Muhammad also liked respect and power and women. Combine these lusts with his acceptance of and personal use of dishonesty - even the gravest kinds: How reliable is that kind of men normally? - and how true and reliable are their never proved claims and tales?

008 2/164e: "- - - the rain which Allah sends down - - -". Once more a natural phenomenon Muhammad is giving his god the credit for - and like absolute always in such cases in the Quran, without any proof. Any follower of any religion can say just the same about his own god(s) - unproved words are that cheap and mean nothing. Also see 11/7a below.

009 2/187b: "- - - what Allah hath ordained - - -". Allah or nature? The Quran and Muhammad never were able to prove anything at all of the central points. There only were and are words and claims. Yahweh at least proved a number of things, if the old books tell the truth - Allah nothing. Also see 11/7a below.

010 2/258d: “But it is Allah that causeth the sun to rise from the east - - -”. Abraham is said to use this as a (also for other reasons totally invalid) proof for Allah. But for one thing it is not the sun which rises, but the Earth which turns. For another thing this is a totally natural process which in no way is proved made by a god - not to mention by Allah. But any priest of Baal - or others - could say as much: 'Baal makes the sun rise in the east. Allah cannot make it rise in the west - which means Baal is proved to be the real god and Allah a fake one!'. Both claims are equally cheap, equally stupid - and totally invalid as proofs + logically total nonsense, as long as it is not proved the god really was/is behind the phenomenon. Did/do a god use such "proofs"?

Another pressing question is this: What on Earth is the quality of the brains and the knowledge of the followers you can dupe with so hopelessly naive arguments like this?

011 2/267b: "- - - the fruits of the earth, which We (Allah) have produced for you (people*) - - -". Allah or nature? This is one of the many, many places in the Quran where Muhammad without any proofs claims natural phenomena as "proofs" for and/or glorification of his god. Totally without any value as long as all of it just is claims and words - claims and words any believer in any religion can make free of charge on behalf of his/her god(s), as long as he can evade all requests for proofs. It is worth nothing as long as it is not proved it really is produced by Allah. Actually we get a bad feeling when we meet invalid "signs" and "proofs" - the use of invalid arguments is the hallmark of deceivers and such people.

012 3/27a: “Thou (Allah*) causest the Night to gain on the Day, and Thou causest the day to gain on the Night - - -“. Wrong. Night and day are a natural result of the Earth spinning in the light from the sun. If Islam claims what the Quran says above, they will have to prove it. Also see 11/7a below.

013 4/119c: "- - - nature created by Allah - - -". See f.x. 2/22d above and 11/7a and 21/56c below.

014 6/1e: “Praise be to Allah, who created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -.” And what does the Quran's universe look like? (Scientific nonsense.) In short (included Earth, the universe (see 51/47c) and living beings): According to the Quran the “everything” = this:

High above everything - above the 7. heaven - resides Allah.

Under him are the seven heavens – one on top of the other.

The heavens are from something material - if not one could not fasten the stars to one of them, bodily resurrected Muslims could not walk on them, and neither mansions nor thrones could be placed on them.

The heavens are held up by invisible pillars - if not they of course would fall down.

The heavens contains Paradise - and better the higher a Heaven (= closer to Allah).

The Paradise for normal good Muslims seems according to Hadiths to be in 1. heaven. It consists of 4 or 6 or more (exact number not clear) Gardens, one more luxurious than the other

In between the heavens are the sun and the moon (the sun is not said, only indicated to be just here).

Also the sun moves across the sky. (It in reality is the Earth that spins around.)

The sun raises in the east from the Earth, and sets in a pool of dirty water on Earth in the west.

The places for sunrise and sunset was found by Dhu'l Quarnayn = Alexander the Great.

Under the sun and moon, and fastened to the lowest of the 7 heavens (37/6-7, 41/12), are all the stars. (The movements of the planets are not explained.)

Stars also are used as shooting stars to chase away bad spirits and jinns spying on Heaven.

Under the heavens and stars are clouds.

The clouds Allah sometimes breaks to pieces (raindrops).

Under the clouds the birds are kept aloof by only the will of Allah.

Then there is our flat Earth.

On the Earth mountains are set down - not grown up, but set down.

The Earth is kept steady by the mountains.

Without the steadying mountains Earth might start wobbling and tip around (today Islam points to earth-quakes, but that was not the original meaning according to Muslim scholars of the old).

On "our" Earth are rivers. Hadiths tell that 2 of them - the Nile and the Euphrates - start in Paradise.

On Earth there further are highways - made by Allah.

On the Earth also all kinds of beings live – created from clay or something or nothing.

The first man was Adam - a single man - created in somewhere between 5 and 13 different ways*.

Under our Earth (Hadith) there are more flat Earths – 7 all together.

Islam has names for all the different Earths - and tells (in Hadiths) that the lower down, the more hellish life for the inhabitants.

And at the bottom (Hadith) is Hell.

Hell has seven gates, each leading to a separate part of Hell - one worse than the other.

* Modern Islamic literature seems to indicate that the official point of view of Islam is that man really was created by clay or similar.

Just like what your school and modern science tell you?

(This is one of the really strong and easy to see proofs for that the Quran is not made by an omniscient god - no omniscient god makes mistakes, and absolutely not of this quantity, magnitude and stupidity.)

015 6/2b: “He (Allah*) is it who created you from clay - - -“. But how man was created, is complicated in the Quran; the one and first man - Adam - was made in no less than 13 different ways (or 5-6-7 if you say that some of them were different names for the same raw material). This even though one man cannot be created in more than one way. The Quran says he was made:

From clay: 6/2 7/12 17/61 32/7 38/71 38/76.
From sounding clay: 15/26 15/28 15/33.
From ringing clay: 55/64
From sticky clay: 37/11
From essence of clay: 23/12
From mud: 15/26 15/28 15/33.
From dust: 3/59 22/5 35/11 40/67.
From earth: 20/55
From a clot of congealed blood: 96/2
From semen:# 16/4 75/37 76/2 80/19.
From nothing: 19/9 19/67.
From water: 21/30 24/45 25/54.
From base material: 70/39.
 

One of these may be from the Bible, the other 12 not.

#(It is not told where the semen came from).##

## Mostly when the book talks about semen, it is in connection with (making) children. But also children are not made from semen - it only is 50% of the truth. A child is made from semen + an egg cell, but an egg cell is so small, that Muhammad did not know about it - human eggs can hardly be seen in the blood and gore in a carcass or a slaughtered animal. Actually at the time of Muhammad one did not know how conception happened - one theory was that semen was a seed which grew when placed in a woman - though far from each time. Strangely this is how the Quran explains it. Any god had known better.

Strictly speaking all the different ways of creating man/Adam, means that the Quran tells that man/Adam was created in 13 different ways, even if Adam was created only once (in reality he never was created and never existed – man developed from earlier primates according to science). If one lump similar “creations” together, there still remains at least 5-7 different creations. Only one can even according to the Quran be right (as Adam was created only once even according to the Quran and to the Bible) - and the irony is that science long since has showed that all alternatives are wrong, as man like said evolved from a prehistoric primate.

Some Muslims explain that Adam was created from a little clay, a little dust, a little earth, a little blood, a little semen, a little nothing and some water. But that is far from what the Quran tells - and even if it were the true story of the Quran, it is wrong. For one thing man does not consist of clay, etc., and for another he as mentioned was not created, but developed from prehistoric beings.

Yes, we know about the Eve from archaeology who lived in East Africa some 160ooo - 200ooo (195ooo?) years ago, and the corresponding Adam that lived in Asia some 60ooo - 70ooo (64ooo?) years ago, but that is something different).

The Quran here is contradicting even 3. form primary school knowledge. Actually this is scientific nonsense.

016 6/6b: "- - - We (Allah*) poured out rain from the skies - - -". Often claimed, never proved. This is one of the many natural phenomena Muhammad claims for his god. See 11/7a below.

017 6/60a: "It is He (Allah*) who doth take away your soul at night - - -" = makes you sleep - sleep is like a kind of death, as Allah takes away your soul. Muhammad often took natural phenomena and told they were because of Allah - like any believer in any religion can say about his god(s) as long as he can evade demands to prove it - there are few things as cheap as words as long as you do not have to prove them.

*018 6/95a: “It is Allah Who causeth the seed grain and the date stone to split and sprout.” (A sign according to 6/97-99). Once more a natural phenomenon - or two - which Muhammad gave Allah the credit for, without one single proof. It is impressive to give a god so much credit - - - especially if the audience is uneducated and naïve enough to believe without proof, or really to believe in spite of invalid proofs and in spite of proofs for that something is really wrong. Easy victims for cheaters and deceivers, f.x.

019 6/96a: "He (Allah*) is it that cleaveth the daybreak (from the dark) - - -". One more of the many places where Muhammad without proving anything takes a natural phenomenon and tells this is done by Allah. Totally without value as an indication or a proof for Allah, unless it first is proved that it really is Allah who does this - for one thing it is only a claim, and for another any priest in any religion as cheaply can claim just the same on behalf of his god(s). Also see 11/7a below.

020 6/96b: “He (Allah*) makes the night for rest and tranquillity - - -“. One more natural phenomenon which Muhammad claimed for his god (see 11/7a below) – and as always without a single proof. But the main thing just here is that night for sleep is not a prerequisite for life – on the contrary sleep at night (or at day for some animals) is an adaptation made by life to the fact that it is dark parts of the time. There is much life in total darkness - and a lot of life in perpetual daylight during summers in the far south and far north - any god had known.

021 6/96c: “He makes - - - the sun and the moon for the reckoning (of time)”. Wrong. They - and especially the sun - are natural phenomena which are essential to life on Earth (the moon may have been essential to the emergence of life, at least on dry land, by creating more "in-between-zone" between dry land and sea - remember here that the moon was closer to Earth then, and thus the tidal zone wider). It so happens that they are ok for reckoning time, but they are not made for it. (Actually they hardly are made even especially for sustaining life on Earth.)

It is very clear from the following verses and notes that Islam claims the Quran is sent down from a god – revealed by the god to Muhammad - and to his followers via Muhammad. Muslims also claim the book is clear and that everything is easy to understand - - - except when there are points which clearly are wrong, or others difficult to understand. Then the texts suddenly are allegories and/or must be understood from a special context – or “cannot be understood correctly unless you have the full overview over the whole book”.

##022 6/97a: “It is He (Allah*) Who maketh the stars (as beacons) for you - - -” - and fastened to the lowest heaven, as we know from other places in the Quran - and also used as shooting stars to chase away bad spirits, according to the same book. That the stars are lights and weapons fastened to the lowest heavens (37/6-7, 41/12) - below the moon according to the Quran and to the astronomy of that time - destroys the credibility of Muhammad concerning this unproved statement about a natural phenomenon like the stars. Even worse: It is not just a statement; it is a sign for Allah - invalid like all the others. A small remark: Use of false proofs often is the hallmark of cheats and deceivers.

More essential just here: That the mighty and distant stars are made just for being beacons for tiny beings on a far-away minor planet, is unlikely to a very high power.

023 6/97b: “It is He (Allah*) Who maketh the stars (as beacons) for you that ye may guide yourself, with their help, through the dark spaces of land and sea: We detail Our Signs for people who know”. Well, but where is the proof for that Allah had anything to do with the making of the stars at all? The Quran even flagrantly proves that Allah/Muhammad have not the faintest idea neither of what the stars are, nor where they are (according to the Quran they are points of fire that even can be used for weapons (shooting stars) against bad spirits, fastened to the nonexistent lowest of 7 material heavens (37/6-7, 41/12) - which means that according to the astronomy of that time they are situated somewhere between the Earth and our moon (as the moon was fastened to another heaven, that one could not be the lowest one + it is said it is between the heavens)). Some “sign” and some "detailed explanation"!

024 6/99a: “It is He (Allah*) Who sendeth down rain from the skies - - -". One more natural phenomenon any believer can claim for his god(s) glory - just like Muhammad does. Such claims cost nothing as long as one does not have to prove anything. Invalid unless Islam proves differently. See 11/7a below.

025 6/99b: “It is He (Allah*) Who sendeth down rain from the skies - - - in these things there are Signs for people who believe”. Yes, but only if Islam proves it really is Allah who causes it, or (wrongly) if they believe blindly and has no education about how the water cycle works - without any traces from an involved god and absolutely no sign specific for Allah. The flattery added is cheap oil.

##026 6/99c: “- - - with it (rain) We (Allah*) produce vegetation of all kinds - - - in these things there are Signs for people who believe.” Well, vegetation grows no matter in the nature. We only have the words of one single man for that Allah is involved - a man whom Islam itself admits is a highwayman, an extorter, an assassin of opponents, a mass murderer of helpless prisoners, a womanizer, a rapist, a breaker of his words (f.x. by killing 29 men - 1 got away - he had promised safe conduct), an enslaver "en masse", etc., aspiring for power - all in all a perfect and absolutely reliable witness according to himself and to Islam. And not to mention his slogan according to Ibn Ishaq: "War is betrayal" - betrayal and even breaking of one’s oaths was ok. Well, flattery feels good at least – especially for people naïve enough to believe everything they want to believe. Wrong unless Islam proves differently. (According to science, this is done by nature.)

One also her should not forget his point of view concerning al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie), Kitman (the lawful half-truth), Hilah (the lawful pretending/circumventing), etc.

027 6/99d: “- - - from some We (Allah*) produce green (crops) - - - in these there are Signs for people who believe”. See the 6/99a, 6/99b, and 6/99c above.

028 6/99e: “- - - out of which (green crops*) We (Allah*) produce grain - - - in these there are Signs for people who believe”. See 6/99a, 6/99b and 6/99c above. Flattery is cheap.

029 6/99f: “- - - out of the date palm and its sheaths (or spates) (come) clusters of dates hanging low and near: and (then there are) gardens of grapes, and olives, and pomegranates, each similar (in kind) yet different (in variety) - - - in these things are Signs for people who believe”. See 6/99a-e above.

##030 7/29d:"- - - He (Allah*) created you - - -". There must be at least a hundred places in the Quran where Muhammad takes a natural phenomenon and without any proof claims it is Allah who is behind it. This for:

  1. Glorification of his god.
  2. Indication of his claimed god's existence.
  3. "Sign" - which in "Quran-speak" indicates proof - for his claimed god's existence.
  4. "Sign for his claimed god's power.
  5. "Proof" for his claimed god's existence.
  6. "Proof" for his claimed god's power.
  7. A few times as proof for other gods' non-existence (f.x.: "Allah makes the sun rise in the east, your god cannot make it rise in the west - your god does not exist".)
  8.  

    All this have one thing in common: They are utterly invalid words as long as it is not proved it really is Allah who makes those things happen - something the Quran never even tries to prove. Not once. It just is cheap, valueless words any priest and any believer in any religion freely can use free of charge on behalf of his/her god(s), as long as they can evade all requests for proving anything - like the Quran always does. Here it in addition is an extra curious point as the Quran nearly always demands proofs from others, but never proves anything - anything - of any consequence itself. (The same to a large degree goes for Islam and for Muslims today - twisted logic, lose claims and cheap words, often lots of them, but no valid proofs for any of the central questions. Not one of the central points - in reality claims only - is proved in Islam. Everything only builds on the words of Muhammad - a man even the Quran and the Hadiths prove to be a man of very doubtful morality, as soon as you omit the glorifying cheap words, and look at the realities; what he demanded and did and permitted, what rules he introduced, etc.) Also see 21/56c below.

    031 7/54g: “He draweth the night as a veil o’er the day - - -”. The night is just the absence of light. Nothing. It is not possible to use nothing as a veil or to draw it over anything - and absolutely not over the light of day. Muhammad had this completely wrong: Daylight can influence the darkness, but the darkness of night cannot influence the daylight. Totally wrong. A natural phenomenon tried disused as a "proof" for Allah, but in this case it back-fired because it is absolutely wrong - any god had known this. Then who made the Quran?

    032 7/54h: "He (Allah*) created the sun, the moon, and the stars - - -". The Quran often claims Allah created everything, but it never proves anything of any essence - only lose words. Muhammad and many other believers in many religions make similar claims to the honor of their gods - easy words as long as one does not have to prove anything. And this claim clearly is wrong unless Islam proves the opposite.

    Simply more natural phenomena claimed by Muhammad for his claimed god.

    033 7/54i: "- - - governed by laws (of nature*) under His (Allah's*) command". See 7/54f above.

    *034 7/54+58c: “- - -Allah, Who created - - - the earth in (part of*) six days - - - thus do We explain the Signs - - -”. Nearly as beautiful a wrong proof of Allah as the one just above - creation of Earth took millions of years, and there is no trace of Allah or any other god neither in the sun, nor in the Earth. Oh, we know many religions included Islam are reluctant to admit it, but till date there is not one single valid proof for a god being involved. A nice “sign” and a nice "explanation". But invalid. Wrong unless Islam proves the opposite.

    ##035 7/54+58d: “He (Allah*) draweth the night as a veil o’er the day - - - thus do We explain - - -”. A new wonderfully wrong proof for Allah from nature: The night can in no scientific way be described as a veil, as the night is simply nothing - it only is absence of light. If you really want to be specific, in addition Muhammad has gotten it all totally wrong - it is the daylight that rules over the night, not the other way round. Another nice “sign” - not to mention the “explanation“. Wrong unless Islam proves the opposite. This any god had known - who made the Quran?

    036 7/54+58e: “He (Allah*) created the sun - - - thus do We explain the Signs - - -”. Proofs, please - if not we believe the sun is from nature. A wrong claim unless Islam proves the opposite. Also see 7/29b above.

    037 7/54+58f: “He (Allah*) created - - - the moon - - - thus do We explain the Signs - - -”. See the one just above. Wrong unless Islam proves the opposite. (Some explanation.)

    038 7/54+58g: “He (Allah*) created - - - the stars - - - thus do We explain the Signs - - -”. See the 2 just above. In this case even more so, as the stars are NOT fastened to a lowest heaven (37/6-7, 41/12), and are not identical to shooting stars like the Quran tells in another verse. Wrong unless Islam proves the opposite. (Once more: Some explanation.)

    039 7/54+58h: “- - - (all cosmos is*) governed by laws under his Command - - - thus do we explain the Signs - - -.” All gods like to say similar words, and it is very easy to say. Well, words and statements cost nothing more than a big mouth - but where are proofs for that Allah really initiated this “sign” for Allah? Wrong unless Islam proves the opposite.

    040 7/57a: “It is He who sendeth the winds - - -”. The winds are made by differences in temperatures and air pressure. Islam will have to prove that Allah is doing it - if he does. Also see 7/29b above.

    041 7/57c: "- - - We (Allah*) drive them (the clouds*) - - -". Wrong unless Islam proves the opposite. See 11/7a below.

    042 7/58a: “From the land that is clean and good, by the will of its Cherisher (Allah*), springs up produce - - -”. It is easy to take credit for all and everything, when you evade all questions about proofs. Also see 11/7a below.

    043 7/158i: “- - - it is He (Allah*) that giveth - - - life - - -”. A very nice thing to claim credit for - and claims come easy if you never have to prove it. This claim is repeated frequently in the Quran, and it is an interesting one, because neither Allah nor Muhammad ever - not one single time - proved any power over death. Lots of killing and murder, but not one documented resurrection or creation of life. Whereas both the Quran (f.x. 5/110d) and the Bible tell that Yahweh and Jesus - and even Elisha, Paul, and Peter (but not Muhammad) - had the power to resurrect. (F.x. 1. Kings.17/22, 2. Kings.4/34-35, Matt. 9/25, Matt. 27/52, Luke 7/15, John 11/44, Acts 9/40, Acts 20/10 - plus Jesus' resurrection).

    044 7/158j: “- - - it is He (Allah*) that giveth - - - death - - -”. Another natural event to claim credit for - true or not. Though as for giving death both Muhammad and his successors were pretty efficient.

    Science tells this is done by nature, and the Quran's claim here thus is wrong unless Islam proves the opposite. If science is correct, a few hundred million non-Muslims have been killed by Muslims through the centuries - most in Africa and Asia. May be nearly 100 million only connected to slave taking/slave trade in and out of black Africa - f.x. the slave transport through Sahara cost very many lives, and slave taking often was far from peaceful.

    045 7/190a: "But when He (Allah*) giveth them (a couple*) a goodly child - - -". Allah? - or a (proved?) god (if such one exists?)? - or nature?

    046 8/11a: "- - - He (Allah*) caused rain to descend - - -". Allah or nature? This claim is wrong unless Islam proves the opposite.

    047 10/5e: "- - - Allah (did*) create this (everything*) - - -". Allah? Or someone else? Or nature? - another easy claim which never is proved.

    048 10/24a: "- - - the rain which We (Allah*) send down from the sky - - -". Muhammad often uses natural phenomena for glorification and/or "proof" for his god. In this case it means a lot of work for Allah, as the Quran another place tells he breaks the clouds to pieces to make the raindrops.

    But as he never proves it is Allah who in reality sends the rain, it may as well be another god - many priests in many religions claim the same honor for their god(s). An easy and cheap claim as long as one flees from all requests for proofs. (And maybe it is done by nature?)

    This claim is wrong, unless proved right by Islam.

    049 10/31a: Some natural phenomena (dis)used as "signs" for Allah without proving Allah is behind the phenomena - like Islam often does. See 10/6b+c above.

    050 10/67a: "He (Allah*) it is who hath made you Night - - - and Day - - -." Yet another natural phenomenon Muhammad grabs as a "sign"/"proof" for his god - totally invalid as anything, as long as it is not proved it really is Allah who causes it. Just another of very many lose and never documented claims in the Quran any believer in any religion can claim for his/her god(s) - unproved words are that cheap and worthless. And the fact that the Quran only have such logically worthless words for "proofs", is a main reason why Islam so strongly glorifies blind belief and so frequently talks about "instinctive" knowledge, etc., even though man may be the one of the higher animals with least instinctive knowledge. And of what such we after all have got, hardly anything is at any intellectual level, where "instinctive knowledge about god" would have to have been situated. (Another thing is that a small percent of humans - 10% or lower - have a drive for something stronger than oneself to lean to. A drive which perhaps is based on insecurity. But that is a drive, not knowledge - and strong belief in any religion satisfies it). It also is a main reason why Islam so often backbites and derides requests for intellectual or scientific knowledge; as they have no facts to show for themselves, the value of facts and real knowledge must be downplayed and discredited.

    051 11/7a: "He (Allah*) it is who created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -". Many, many places in the Quran you find Muhammad is claiming natural phenomena for his god - for glorification, for "sign" (normally "Quran-speak" for proof) or directly for "proof". He never even tried to prove or document it - there only was and is his word: The word of the man who was behind the institutionalization of al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie), Kitman (the lawful half-truth), Hilah (the lawful pretending/circumventing), breaking of promises and your words, included your oaths (f.x. 2/225, 5/89, 16/91, 66/2), the man who lived by "war is deceit" - and everything was war - etc. But cheap words like this any mullah or priest - yes, even an ordinary believer - in any religion as easily can claim for his god(s), as long as he can avoid the requests for proofs - lose words and lose claims are as cheap as that - - - one of the reasons why they often are used for propaganda.

    But such words and such claims have some things in common:

    1. Unless it is proved that the god really is behind the claimed phenomena, such words and claims are totally without any logical value.
    2. Without such proofs, they also are totally without any value as indications or proofs.
    3. Such claims also show that the user has no valid arguments or facts - if he had, he had used them instead.
    4. Invalid arguments normally are the hallmarks of persons trying to cheat you - be it a politician, a cheat, a deceiver, a swindler - Muhammad may have been all of this, as he was going for power and for riches for bribes - and for women. And he was not the glossy semi-saint Muslims like to claim - just read the Quran about his demands and deeds and some lies, and you see this. Skip the glorifying words and claims, and read what he demanded, introduced and did, and you get the real picture - glorious words are cheap, demands and deeds are by far more reliable when you want the truth about a person.
     

    Claims of this kind all are wrong and invalid, unless Islam proves - proves - the opposite. ("A proof is one or more proved facts which can give only one conclusion".)

    052 11/52c: "He will send you the skies pouring abundant rain - - -". Once more a natural phenomenon Muhammad without documentation claims for his god - like any believer in any religion can do as long as no proof is required. The claim is wrong unless Islam proves differently.

    053 13/2f: “He (Allah*) has subjected the sun and the moon (to His Law)! - - - ”. Similar often claimed, but never proved. One of those easy, cheap claims anyone can make.

    054 13/2g: “He (Allah*) has subjected the sun and the moon (to His Law!) - - - ”. Natural laws are integrated parts of the nature, until someone proves this is wrong. No god or prophet has ever proved that - it remains to be seen if Islam is able to do so. Also see 11/7a above.

    055 13/2h: "- - - (His (Allah's*) Law) - - -". Proof? - everybody can claim, but where is Muhammad's proof?

    *056 13/3b: “And He (Allah*) it is Who spread out the earth - - - ”. Allah or the nature - most likely the nature, because the nature has made the Earth round, whereas Muhammad/the Quran believes it is flat. Verily we do consider that to make such a mistake, makes it a very suspect “sign” for Allah.

    057 13/4a: “- - - yet some of them (fruits, etc., etc.*) We (Allah*) make more excellent than others to eat. Behold, verily in those things there are Signs for those who understand!” At least it is very easy to understand that Allah/Muhammad takes credit for a lot of natural things that happens by itself in nature, fields and orchards, without proving that he has even one finger in the game. Invalid as sign or proof until it is proved that Allah really is behind this. Also note the flattery.

    058 13/12a: “It is He (Allah*) Who doth show you the lightning - - -”. An impressive natural phenomenon which many gods like to be the masters of - but Allah does not prove it any more than the other pretenders, like f.x. Thor (the Old Norse god of war - like Islam the religion of the old Vikings was a religion of war and the lightning was a symbol for the war god Thor). Also see 11/7a above.

    059 13/12b: "- - - it is He (Allah*) Who doth raise the clouds, heavy with (fertilizing) rain". Yet another natural phenomenon which all and every religion claim for its god(s) - just like Muhammad and the Quran for Allah. And as normal for Muhammad: Never a proof - only claims based on nothing. Also see 11/7a above.

    *060 13/13a: “- - - the thunder repeateth His praises - - -“. Hardly – the thunder is just a natural and automatic reaction to the lightning (which again is natural and automatic reactions to electrical charges). Islam will have to prove that the thunder – vibrations in the air - has enough brain to be able to praise Allah in this way, in order to be believed. A case of animism (animism is typical mainly for primitive religions and for fairy tales). Also see 11/7a above.

    061 13/15c: “- - - so (prostrate themselves for Allah*) do their (the living beings’*) shadows in the mornings and evenings”. Animism - normally to be found in primitive religions (and in fairy tales). Shadows are just lack of sunlight – and they for natural reasons are long and flat in the mornings and the evenings. Islam will have to prove that this result of the Earth’s spin in the sunshine, makes the lack of sunlight some places to have enough brain to consciously decide to prostrate “themselves” for a god (if it is not a willed act, it has no religious meaning). If no proofs are produced, this clearly is a fairy tale on an intellectual level fit for small children. Also see 16/48b+c below.

    062 13/17a: "He (Allah*) sends down water from the skies - - -". See 11/7a above. This claim is wrong according to science, unless Islam proves differently.

    063 13/22d: "- - - what We (Allah*) have bestowed for their sustenance - - -". It of course is Allah who makes the food grow, at least according to Muhammad. But see 11/72 above. Actually this is done by nature + the farmer, unless Islam proves differently.

    064 14/10c: "- - - Allah, the Creator of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which says this was done by Yahweh, not by Allah. (And by a number of other religions - it is one of those claims anybody can use free of charge on behalf of their god(s), as long as no proof is required.) Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just lose claims and as lose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

    065 14/19a: "Seest thou not that Allah created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -". No, in this case we only see a book so full of mistakes that it is not from a god. Such a not documented claim in such a book, has no value.

    066 14/19c: “- - - Allah created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth in Truth - - -”. (For some reason or other Islam and its Muslims seldom claim that Islam is the religion of honesty.) It is impossible to know if it is true, as long as the Quran only offers words and not a single proof. Words are very cheap - especially when it is clear that there are MANY mistakes etc. in the book. Also: This claim is strongly negate by science, as there are no material heaven above Earth, and definitely not 7 of them. Also see 11/7a above.

    067 14/32a: "It is Allah Who hath created the heavens (plural and wrong*) the earth - - -". See 11/7a above.

    068 14/32c: "It is Allah Who - - - sendeth down rain from the skies - - -". See 11/7a above. According to science this is done by nature - if not Islam proves, proves, otherwise.

    069 14/32d: "- - - it is He (Allah*) who hath made the ships subject to you, that they may sail across the sea by His command - - -." No comments - ships are not made by nature, but they definitely are not made by any god, too.

    070 14/33a: "And He (Allah*) hath made subject to you the sun and the moon - - -". Are the sun and the moon really subjects to humans? Wrong.

    071 14/33b: "- - - and the Night and the Day hath He (Allah*) (also) made subject to you". See 14/33a just above.

    ###072 15/16a: “It is We (Allah*) Who have set out the Zodiacal signs in the heavens (plural and wrong*)”. Actually we think there is nothing in the universe (see 51/47c) that Muhammad knew about, which he does not claim credit for on behalf of his god. Only a pity he was limited to what Muhammad believed he knew - which produces extra doubt when things on top of lack of proofs, sometimes/often are really wrong.

    On thinking it over: It really is strange that Allah makes no claims of credit for things Muhammad did not know about - in Muhammad’s and Islam’s future that would have made elegant proofs for Allah. There are none - no true foretelling at all in the Quran, and also no scientific or other facts which were unknown at the time of Muhammad, and which would have proved Allah later. (This in stark contradiction to such claims from lay Muslims. But check those claims - till now each and every of them have been wrong. And another curious fact: You meet those claims from lay Muslims without much education, and you meet them in media meant for lay Muslims or sometimes for non-Muslims without too much education - often run by educated Muslims, but aiming at "the masses". You seldom find it in media/books meant for really educated persons. Strange, don't you think so?)

    073 15/17a: “- - - We (Allah*) have guarded them (the Zodiacal Signs*) from every evil spirit accursed: - - -” According to the Quran, the stars – included the Zodiacal signs – are fastened to the lowermost of 7 heavens (material ones – they have to be if the stars can be fastened to one of them). But jinns/bad spirits wanted to spy on the heavens, and had to be chased away by stars used as shooting stars. And then the Zodiacal signs were guarded at the same time. According to science this is utter nonsense to at least the fifth power. Any god had known – even baby ones – but Muhammad not. Then who made the Quran with all its mistaken facts, etc.?

    074 15/19a: “And the earth We (Allah*) have spread out (like a carpet); - - -”. In the Quran the Earth is flat - which is wrong. Just ask any god. (Actually it is not directly said in the Quran that the Earth is flat - this was too obvious for Muhammad even to mention. But all things it is compared to, are flat. And in Hadiths it is told that the 7 (flat) Earths are placed one on top of the other.)

    *075 15/19b: “- - - set thereon (on the Earth*) mountains firm and immovable - - -.” But no mountain was ever set down – not to mention from somewhere above. They without exception did grow up, no matter whether they grew up because of volcanism or because of tectonic activity (the only two ways mountains are made). Any god had known – but Muhammad not.

    076 15/22: "And We (Allah*) send the fecundating wind, then cause rain to descend from the sky - - -". Another place the Quran even tells that Allah breaks the clouds to pieces (and thus makes the raindrops(!)). Muhammad gives Allah the honor for everything. But see 11/7a above.

    077 16/3a: "He (Allah*) has created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -". Often claimed, never proved.

    078 16/8a: “And (He (Allah*) has created horses, mules, and donkeys - - - “. See 11/7a and 16/5 above. According to science this is done by nature. Thus the Quran here is wrong, unless Islam proves it is right.

    079 16/10: “It is He (Allah*) Who sends down rain from the sky - - -". Wrong if not Islam proves the opposite. See 11/7a above.

    *080 16/10-11b: “- - - out of it (rain*) (grows) the vegetation on which ye feed your cattle. - - - verily in this is a Sign for those who give thought.” Giving it thought, we understand that this is just what nature is like - and that Allah has not proved it is his work, even though Muhammad said so - but only said so. And some more flattery of the reader (13/3j). Also see 11/7a above.

    *081 16/11a: “With it (rain*) He (Allah*) produce for you corn, olives, date palms, grapes and every kind of fruit: verily in this is a Sign for those who give thought”. It definitely is no proved verity/truth. And also no sign for Allah unless it is proved it is done by Allah. Similar to 16/10-11b above.

    082 16/13a: “And the things on earth which He (Allah*) has multiplied - - -". Allah or nature? Wrong unless Islam proves the opposite. See 11/7a above.

    *083 16/15ab: “And He (Allah*) has set upon the earth mountains - - -". Mountains are not set on Earth - they grow up from Earth - and really the mistake is bigger than this, as the Arab word used, really means that the mountains are dropped down on Earth (the same word an Arab sailor used when he dropped down an anchor).

    084 16/15c: “(Allah has made*) roads - - -“. Wrong – if Islam does not really prove it - not made from nature, but definitely not made by any god, too. The roads in the Middle East at the time of Muhammad in reality only were tracks most places – made not by Allah, but by the walking of men and animals through centuries and millennia. But as their origin was forgotten, no-one really could protest to Muhammad's claim. Also see 11/7a above.

    085 16/65a: “And Allah sends down rain from the skies - - -". The Quran even one place tells that Allah breaks the clouds to pieces (to make the raindrops - the exact opposite process of what really happens). But is it Allah or some other god - or nature - that sends it down? See 11/7a above. The Quran's claim here is wrong unless Islam proves the opposite.

    086 16/65b: “And Allah sends down rain from the skies, and gives therewith life to the earth after its death: - - -”. If rain is all it takes to make earth flourish, it was not dead before the shower - there were lots of live seeds and may be roots.

    087 16/66d: "We (Allah*) produce, for your drink, milk - - -". See 11/7a above.

    This claim in the Quran is wrong unless Islam proves the opposite.

    088 16/67a: "And from the fruit of the date-palm and the vine (other translation; grapes*), ye get out wholesome drink and food (wine - this was in 622 AD, before alcohol was prohibited in Islam*) - - -". This surah is one of the last ones from Mecca, and in the old Mecca like in the rest of Arabia at that time sex and alcohol were "the two delicious things". But you bet that Muhammad little by little prohibited at least this "wholesome drink". Abrogated and contradicted by the verses against alcohol - f.x. 5/90: "Intoxicants and gambling - - - are an abomination - of Satan's handiwork - - -".

    But was this a good "picture" to use for a god for the entire world? How large percentage of the world population at that time would know what a date palm or vine was?

    089 16/68: “And thy Lord (Allah*) taught the Bee to build its cells in hills, on trees and in (man’s) habitations - - -”. The bee is at very least 50 million years old, and most likely more than 200 million years old (though not necessarily the honeybee). It has had plenty of time to develop ways of living and dwelling itself, just by adapting to nature. It is so incredibly easy to claim anything you see and anything that comes to your mind - claim it for the honor and credit of your real or invented god, as long as you shy away from proving anything, and your audience accepts your fast words - something that may be possible when your listeners are uneducated and naïve, or if they are in a religious fervor and/or strongly brainwashed. Not to mention if all these conditions are present - the most intense religious fanatics in Islam (and other religions) you find among the lower intelligent or not too educated ones, and among educated ones with a one-tracked mind - one-tracked by nature or nurture.

    *090 16/78b: “- - - He (Allah*) gave you hearing and sight and intelligence and affection - - -”. In that case Allah was an early riser - science has identified these traits hundreds of millions years ago - and a slow worker - as it took far more than 500 million years from early animals in the Ediacarian period some 600 million (635 - 542 million) years ago in late Pre-Cambric (or some 3,5 billion years or more if you recon from the very first traces of life) to produce human intelligence. But no one in Arabia in 630 AD had any chance to disclaim such a claim: Muhammad tells it - and a nice and reliable robber, lier (he lied more than 80 times in the Quran - at least), and rapist like him, of course spoke only the truth! (Sometimes Muslims tell you Muhammad was a man of his times - hard and brutal times - and no worse than other chieftains and war lords in Arabia. They may be right, but he definitely neither was any better - and he pretended (?) to represent a benevolent god. (It f.x. is impossible to compare him and Jesus - they are many worlds apart in teachings, ethics and morality - and not to mention in empathy)).

    091 16/79a: “Nothing holds them (the birds*) up but (the power of) Allah”. Wrong. What hold them up are the laws of aerodynamics. Muhammad would not know this, but all gods would. Contradicts reality. Also see 11/7a above and 67/19a below.

    092 16/81d: "- - - of the hills He (Allah*) made some for your shelter - - -". We will guess no professor of geography or geology will agree to that some mountains are made for the purpose of giving humans shelter. This needs a strong proof to be believed. Besides: Was it Allah who made it? - or nature? - or perhaps a real god?

    According to science this is done by nature, and this claim in the Quran thus is wrong unless Islam proves the opposite.

    093 16/81e: ”He (Allah*) made you garments - - -”. Proofs for that Allah did this? (Garments normally are not made directly by nature, but also definitely not by a god.)

    094 17/12a: "We (Allah*) made the Night and the Day - - -". See 11/7a above.

    095 17/66a: "Your (Muhammad's*) Lord (Allah*) is He that maketh the Ship go smoothly for you through the sea - - -". See 11/7a above.

    096 17/99a: "See they (non-Muslims*) not that Allah, Who created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth, has power to create the like of them (anew)?". Impossible to see as long as it is not proved that Allah really created the heavens and the earth - and especially when you see lots of errors in the teaching in addition.

    097 18/45a: "- - - the rain which We (Allah*) send down from the skies - - -". See 11/7a above.

    098 20/53b: "- - - He (Allah*) has sent down rain from the sky". See 11/7a above.

    099 20/53c: "With it (water*) have We (Allah*) produced pairs of diverse plants - - -". At least mostly wrong, as most plants do not exist in pairs - "male" and "female" parts are at the same plant, often in the same flower. There exist some which comes in pair though. But it may seem like Muhammad did not know, because he say a similar thing at least one more place in the Quran, and there more definitely ("fruits in pairs").

    Besides: Plants are not made from water - water only is a part of them.

    100 20/54b: “- - - in these (plants and cattle and food*) are Signs (Quran-speak for proofs for Allah) for men endued with understanding.” There are no real signs in the Quran – not for Allah, not for Muhammad’s religion, not for Muhammad’s connection to a god. The only signs “men endued with understanding” gets from sentences like this in the Quran, is the question: Why did Muhammad have to use invalid proofs and twisted logic, and the conclusion: Muhammad’s use of invalid arguments proves that he had no real arguments/facts – if he had had, he had used them instead. And actually there is one more point: ####The use of made up claims and statements and "proofs" are the hallmarks of a cheat and a swindler.

    101 20/132b: "- - - We (Allah*) provide it (sustenance*) for thee (people*)." See 11/7a above.

    A question: Who really provides it? - dark forces? Allah? - nature? - nature + work? - or perhaps thieving/looting?

    102 21/30e: "We (Allah*) made from water (NB: “from water”, not “in water”*) every living thing.” There does not exist one single living thing which is created from water or made from water. There are beings which are some 98% water, but that is maximum. The normal may vary around 70%, but the margins are wide. Besides: This is contradicted by 6/2, 7/12, 17/61, 32/7, 38/71, and 38/76 that tell man/Adam was made from clay, 15/26, 15/26, and 15/33 that tell man/Adam was made from sounding clay, 55/14 that tells man/Adam was made from ringing clay, 37/11 that tells man/Adam was made from sticky clay, 23/12, that tells man/Adam was made from essence of clay, 15/26, 15/28, and 15/33 that tell man/Adam was made from mud, 3/59, 22/5, 35/11, 40/67, that tell man/Adam was made from dust, 20/55 that tells man/Adam was made from earth, 96/2 that tells man/Adam was made from a clot of congealed blood, 16/4, 75/37, 76/2, 80/19, that tell man/Adam was made from semen (without explaining from where the semen came), 70/39 that tells man/Adam was made from “base material”. (Also see verse 6/2 in the chapter about the 1000+ mistakes in the Quran.) (Strictly reckoned this contradicts 28 other verses. And here minimum 28 contradictions.)

    *103 21/30f: “We (Allah*) made from water every living thing.” Wrong - the living things were not made from water. Some Muslims say modern science proves the Quran here, as science tells life started in water. But life just started in water, it was not made from water - there is a huge distinction there. The really bad thing here, though, is that this incorrect information also is told by well educated Muslims – f.x. it is thoroughly explained in comment 21/38 to verse 21/30 in “The Meaning of the Quran” – by Muslims that have so much education and knowledge that they know very well the difference between to be made in water and be made from water. How reliable is then other things they claim or “explain”? See also 6/2. We may add that this is the only place in the Quran where – possibly – also the “creation” of plants is included, this in spite of that plants are the basis for all animal and human life.

    104 21/31b: “And We (Allah*) have set on the earth mountains - - -”. The mountains are not “set on” the Earth - they have without exception “grown up”, no matter whether they are a result of tectonic or volcanic activity (the only 2 ways to make mountains). Any god knew this, but Muhammad not. Does this indicate who the real composer of the Quran is?

    We may add that we are informed that the actual verb which is used in the original Arab text, do not really mean “set down” but “dropped down” and is the same verb that is used when one f.x. is dropping an anchor. Mountains definitely are not dropped down. Also see 31/10b and 41/9-12.

    *105 21/31c: “And We (Allah*) have set on the earth mountains standing firm, lest it should shake with them - - -”. Experts on Islam and the Quran say this refers to that the disk which is the Earth (in the Quran the Earth is flat, but perhaps a round disk) might shake and become unstable, and because of this may slip away or tip around and drop everything - included humanity - off the Earth.

    We refer to some Muslim scholars: Jalalan, (p. 437), Baydawi (p. 686), Tabari (p.589), and Zamakhshari (part 4, p. 381): They all tell that “if it was not for these unshakable (!!*) mountains, the earth would slip away.”(!!!*)

    ###*And Jalalan, Baydawi, and Zamakhshari all say that “- - - He (Allah*) placed unshakable mountains (not more so than that they shake during earthquakes*) on Earth lest it tilts with people.” This obviously is what the Quran really meant, and this even more obviously was the meaning Muhammad told his followers, as it is what the learned Muslim scholars were sure was the truth.

    But this “truth” is so ridiculous, that let us go on to the alternative explanation – the one which is in vogue in Islam now that they know the original “truth” was wrong: That the mountains hinder earth-quakes.

    That is not correct. Well, it is so far from the truth, that it is not even wrong - it is sometimes the opposite of the truth:

    1. According to f.x. heavyweights like “New Scientist” and “Nature” mountains sometimes can CAUSE earthquakes because of their considerable weight and pressure on the underground. Yes, even variations in the amount of water (= weight) in big mountain lakes or glaciers sometimes causes minor and medium earthquakes. The same goes for heavy snow-falls in the mountains sometimes – snow in the mountains and rain lower down is a normal phenomenon = imbalance in weight. (There f.x. are more earthquakes in the north in winter than in summer).
    2. *It is well known today that mountains are made because of tectonic activity (this always causes earthquakes - though sometimes too feeble for human so feel) or volcanic activity which often causes earthquakes. This means that mountains in reality are made by earthquakes (or actually by the same mechanisms that make most earthquakes), it does not hinder such quakes. Any god had known this, but Muhammad not - this is new knowledge to humans. Then who composed the Quran?
    3. Also volcanism is closely connected to earth quakes. Volcanism also in many cases is connected to tectonic activity - there thus are connections between the two mechanisms for mountain building - and for earthquakes. Tectonic activity makes it easier for lava to break through to the surface - as seen f.x. in "the Ring of Fire" around the Pacific.
    4. Finally: It also is a fact that areas with young/raising mountains have more earthquakes than most other places.

    * 21/31d: “- - - and We (Allah) have made therein (in the mountains*) broad highways (between the mountains) - - -”. We honestly did not know Allah - or any other god - built highways. And here we could make a cheap joke (tell your congress-men (or similar) to ask Allah build your roads, instead of spending all that tax money on it). But we refrain from it.

    Well, it would be possible for Muhammad to say - true or not true - that Allah showed the first travelers where to travel. But in no case Allah built the roads - or highways. Unless Islam really proves he did - but Islam never proves, they only tell or state or claim, even though they demand proofs from everyone else. Or they say it is said so in the Quran, and that proves it. But a book with that many mistakes has little value as a proof - and besides it is logically impossible to use the Quran to prove the Quran, as circular proofs are without value.

    *106 21/31e: “- - - and We (Allah) have made therein (in the mountains*) broad highways (between the mountains) - - -”. This is so ridiculous that we do not remind you that Allah cannot do such things unless he exists and is something supernatural.

    107 21/33b: "It is He (Allah*) who created Night and Day". This is one of the many natural phenomena Muhammad simply claims for his god - in just the same way as other believers claimed it for their god(s), and just as cheap. It had been a nice proof for Allah - - - if Muhammad first had proved Allah really causes it.

    ##108 21/33c: “- - - (Allah created*) all (the celestial bodies) swim along, each in its rounded course.” Wrong. There only is one celestial body that has a round course, and then only compared to Earth: The moon – Luna. And if you compare it to the sun, its course is not really round any more, but a kind of wavy, and even more so if you compare it to the galaxy. The sun also has no rounded course, even if you compare it to the galaxy – it follows a kind of a bent sinus curve above and below the equator plane of the galaxy. The same go for very many of the stars we see – no circle, but bent sinus. Earth's course of course follows, but is more complicated because of its circling the sun at the same time - 107200 km/h around the Sun which moves at 800ooo km/h around the center of our galaxy. And our galaxy moves in the Local Group of galaxies (a few dozen galaxies) direction Andromeda with a speed of 470ooo km/h, and our Local Group and many others are on a somewhat linear way towards something called “the Great Attractor” which nobody knows what is, with a speed of 2200ooo km/h. So we are waltzing around the Sun while it at the same time is circling in our Galaxy in a wavy way, tumbling around in our Local Group, which is wandering in and part of a larger group of a thousand or more galaxies speeding towards The Great Attractor. You do not find round courses in space, unless you cherry-pick part movements – and all courses we can see without telescopes have a somewhat linear main direction because of this movement in the direction of “The Great Attractor”, but irregular because of local circling or similar - and waving.

    The course of the planets are round, you say? - yes, but only compared to the sun. Add the sun's course in the galaxy, the galaxy's course towards Andromeda, both's course in the galaxy cluster, the cluster's course in the super cluster, and the super cluster's course towards the mystical "Great Attractor", and you are very far from a circle course.

    109 21/56c: “- - - He (Allah*) Who created them (man*) - - -". This is a very interesting claim - interesting because similar claims and statements frequently are repeated in the Quran, but never the slightest proof for that it may be true - only the word of a man who according to Islam and its books believed in using lies (al-Taqiyya - the lawful lie - Kitman the lawful half-truth, etc.), etc. - and indicated that this not only can, but ought to be used "if necessary" to defend or promote Islam, and similar for deceit ("War is deceit" - and everything is Jihad), and even broken promises/words/oaths (f.x. 2/225a, 5/89a+b, 16/91, 66/2). And a man wanting power and riches for bribes for more power - - - and women.

    In contradiction to Muhammad's inability to prove anything at all, and his "explaining" away - sometimes even lying in the Quran and Hadiths (see separate chapter in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran") - about Allah's claimed power, both the Quran (f.x. 5/110) and the Bible (f.x. Mark 5/41, John 11/44, Luke 7/15, Acts 20/10 - and of course the resurrection of Jesus himself) tell about Yahweh's power over death. Thought provoking?

     

    ##110 21/56e: “- - - He (Allah*) Who created them (man*) (from nothing): and I (Abraham) am a witness to this (truth)”. Wrong even according to the Quran, as the Quran tells Man - Adam - was created from this and that (see 6/2b above). And on top of that: – man was made from something, though not created, as he developed from earlier primates. This really is an unintended joke: It is told that Allah did something that is not true - and Abraham witnesses that it is the truth, and this even if he lived millions of years later! (Some 6 million years or a bit more after the first humanoid, and may be 200ooo after the first Homo Sapiens or Adam). Some proof for Allah! Is it possible that Allah himself has sent down this mistaken "proof"? But it does tell something about proofs in the Quran – and from Muslims.

    111 21/79e: “- - - it was Our (Allah’s*) power that made the hills - - - celebrate Our (Allah's) praise - - -.” Hills express no feelings or anything – they are totally inanimate. Simply animism - normally found in primitive religions and fairy tales. Not from the Bible.

    112 21/79f: “- - - it was Our (Allah’s*) power that made the hills and the birds celebrate Our (Allah's) praise - - -.” Hills express no feelings or anything – they are totally inanimate. Birds? In old times religious people claimed they sang to praise God - or Allah or gods. But science has long since found that the reasons for their songs are more prosaic – mainly to declare their territory or to attract mates. Besides they do not have the brain power for abstract thinking like praising a god. Animism and anthropomorphism in one verse - things normally found in primitive religions and in fairy tales.

    113 22/5f: "- - - We (Allah*) poor down rain - - -" One more of the natural phenomena Muhammad without any proofs claims for his god - just like many others as simply and cheaply do for their god(s). It had been a nice proof for Allah if the Quran first had proved it really was done by Allah, but without such a proof, it has no value as even an indication. See 11/7a above.

    114 22/5-6: "- - - thou (people*) seest the earth barren and lifeless, but when We (Allah*) poor down rain on it (it is not proved it is Allah who does this*), it is stirred (to life) - - - (and) This is so because Allah is the Reality: it is He who gives life to the dead." This is not even a joke: Allah waters the seeds, and the fact that seeds grow when they get water and the other necessities are present, is indicated to prove that Allah is the reality and that he has power over the death. To say the least of it: A too naive argument. And a totally invalid claim as long as it is not proved it really is Allah who does it.

    115 22/28c: "- - - the cattle which He (Allah*) has provided - - -". Everything you own, is given you from Allah. Nature or your toil - or stealing/looting - has provided nothing?

    116 22/36c: "- - - camels We (Allah*) have made for you - - -". See 11/7a and 22/35b above. We may add that slaughtering of animals, with its blood and gore, is a primitive way of adoring a god. And it is a primitive god who needs or take pleasure in such things. That old tradition was left behind in NT. Also see 22/37a below.

    117 22/61a: "- - - Allah merges Night into Day, and He merges Day into Night - - -". Once more one of the many cases where Muhammad claims a natural phenomenon as an indication or a proof for his god - and like always without any proof. Just like any believer in any religion can claim for his god(s) as long as he can evade proving anything. As long as it is not proved that Allah really causes this phenomenon, it is entirely void of any value as an indication, not to mention as a proof. Also see 11/7a above.

    118 22/63b: "- - - Allah sends down rain from the sky - - -". See 11/7a and 22/61a above.

    119 23/13: “Then We (Allah’) placed him (the future baby*) as (a drop of) sperm in a place of rest - - -“. Wrong. Muhammad believed sperm was a kind of seed that could grow to become a human being (and if the man climaxed first, it became a boy, whereas if the woman climaxed first it became a girl, according to him in Hadiths). The reality is that the sperm is not planted in a woman, but unifies with an egg cell and the resulting zygote then starts growing. Also see 6/2b above and 53/45-46 below.

    *120 23/14a: “Then We (Allah*) made the sperm into a clot of congealed blood - - -”. Wrong. And doubly wrong:

    1. The sperm is not made into a clot of congealed blood.
    2. Sperm (1 cell from it) combines with an egg cell and becomes a zygote.
     

    Muhammad did not know better, as this was what one believed in Arabia at his time - without a microscope it is impossible to see exactly what happens. But a god had known. There is a saying that “the taste is the proof of the cake”, and this is tasty. Muhammad and the Quran and Islam and Muslims had and have very busy time to find “explanations” - some of them rather unlikely - to “explain” why Allah/Muhammad did not produce one single real proof for that a supernatural being was involved, even though many friends and as many foes asked sincerely for it. But Allah did not even have to make the slightest miracle to prove his existence. All he had to do was to tell the truth in all these cases - like this one - where the Quran now are proved to be wrong. If Allah really did exist, and if he really was/is omniscient - why then did he make up so many wrongs, when correct information strongly had proved something in the future?

    As it is, all scientific "facts" in the Quran is in accordance with what was believed to be the truth in Arabia at that time (much of it actually was Greek or Persian "knowledge".)

    A disturbing fact is that even today Muslim scholars try to tell that in one step of development the fetus is a clot of congealed blood(!!!). F.x. YA2872.

    Like it is now, all these facts are incredibly strong proofs for that there was no omniscient god involved in creating the Quran - and what then about Islam? - is it a made up, false religion? Not to mention: What will then in case happen in a possible next life to all humans - Muslims - who have had their chances to look for a real religion (if such one exists) blocked by Islam?

    ######Another strong fact: The fact that many of the wrong facts and other errors in the Quran are in accordance with what one in Arabia at the time of Muhammad believed - wrongly - were correct facts, are a strong indication for who made the Quran.

    *121 23/14b: “- - - then We (Allah*) made a (fetus) lump; We made of that lump bones and clothed the bones with flesh”. Wrong - 100% wrong: Flesh is made first, and then bones develop inside the flesh of the fetus. It must be remarked that Muhammad’s tale about how a baby is made, is in accordance with old Greek medical beliefs – f.x. the famous doctor Galen and Aristotle – which was known in the Middle East at the time of Muhammad (facts Muslim scholars know very well, but never mention.) Any god had known better. Then who made the Quran?

    122 23/18a: "And We (Allah*) send down from the sky - - -". A claim just like from any other relevant god in any other religion. As long as it is not proved Allah really does this, such a claim is worth exactly zero as a proof or indication for Allah - just as much as the similar claim from strong believers in other religions. Also see 11/7a above.

    A telling tale here is that the Quran another place tells that Allah breaks the clouds to pieces (to make raindrops). The exactly opposite of what happens when raindrops are formed. The maker of the Quran was not much omniscient - was he a god or a human?

    123 23/19: "- - - We (Allah*) grow for you gardens - - -". See 11/7a above.

    124 23/79b: “And He (Allah*) has multiplied you through the earth - - -”. To say the least of it: That is something the nature and we have managed ourselves absolutely without any help - and with pleasure. Proofs for the claims, Muslims? See 11/7a above.

    *125 23/86a: “Who is the Lord of the seven heavens - - -?” Wrong. There are no 7 heavens (and remember: They had to be material ones, because according to the Quran, the stars are fastened to the lowest heaven (f.x. 37/6-7, 41/12, 67/5a), and you can fasten nothing to something non-material. Also good Muslims resurrected in body cannot walk on, have thrones on, or have big mansions on a heaven unless the heaven is material.) All the same you find these claims about 7 heavens/firmaments/tracts in 2/29d+e, 17/44a, 23/17a, 23/86a, 41/12a+b, 65/12a, 67/3a+b and 71/15a+b - all together the Quran mentions "heavens" in plural at least 199 times; there is no doubt the Quran means there are 7 heavens. In 67/3 you also are told the heavens are places one above the other, which means they of course are built successively higher above the Earth - which also is clear from most places in the Quran where the place of the heavens are indicated. Some modern Muslims try to place the heavens in space, deep space included. But among others 67/3 prohibits this, as "up" and "down" ("one above the other") has no meaning as part of the real space.

     

    By the way: 67/12b also claims there are 7 Earths, and Hadiths give their names according to Islam.

    It is some irony to see such a huge scientific mistake used as verification for Allah. And it is not the only time a "proof" for Allah simply is scientifically wrong.

    We may add that each time Muhammad uses wrong science or other wrong facts as indication or "proof" for something, we find it a little ironic and amusing.

    126 24/45b: “Allah has created every animal (also man is an animal*) from (not in, but from*) water - - -.” To say it with small letters and no laughing: No comments. But this is contradicted by 6/2, 7/12, 17/61, 32/7, 38/71, and 38/76 that tell man/Adam was made from clay, 15/26, 15/26, and 15/33 that tell man/Adam was made from sounding clay, 55/14 that tells man/Adam was made from ringing clay, 37/11 that tells man/Adam was made from sticky clay, 23/12, that tells man/Adam was made from essence of clay, 15/26, 15/28, and 15/33 that tell man/Adam was made from mud, 3/59, 22/5, 35/11, 40/67, that tell man/Adam was made from dust, 20/55 that tells man/Adam was made from earth, 96/2 that tells man/Adam was made from a clot of congealed blood, 16/4, 75/37, 76/2, 80/19, that tell man/Adam was made from semen (without explaining from where the semen came), 70/39 that tells man/Adam was made from “base material”. (Also see verse 6/2 in the chapters about the 1000+ mistakes in the Quran.) (Strictly reckoned this contradicts 28 other verses. And here minimum 28 contradictions.) Simply and obviously wrong.

    Some Muslims try to say that science has proved this verse (+ two others - 21/30 and 24/54) as science has showed that life started in water. But there is an enormous difference between “from” water and “in” water. No place in the Quran there is even a whisper about that life was created in water, only from. We also mention that in the Quran nothing is said about how the plants were created, even though the plants are the basis for all life on Earth. Perhaps from water like the animals? Wrong simply.

    127 25/45a: “- - - He (Allah*) doth prolong the Shadow!” It is the turning of the Earth that prolongs shadows. Any god had known, but Muhammad not - it is new knowledge. Then who made the Quran? Not an omniscient god. And Allah is said to be omniscient - or is he? Also see 11/7a above.

    128 25/47a: "And He (Allah*) is it Who makes the Night - - - and the Day - - -". See f.x. 11/7a and 24/44a above. Wrong unless Islam proves differently - proves, not claims. Also see 11/7a above.

    129 25/48a: "And it is He (Allah*) Who sends the Winds as heralds of glad tidings (rain*) - - -". For one thing rain is not automatically glad tidings except in the dry parts of the world - would not a universal god use an example which was a glad tiding everywhere? But for another and more serious thing: This is one more of the very many natural phenomena any priest in any religion can claim for his god(s) free of charge as long as he does not have to prove anything - just like Muhammad does time and again and again and again, without proving anything at all. It has exactly no value as an indication, not to mention as a proof for Allah, which is indicated many places in the Quran. Also see 11/7a above. (Also science has another explanation.)

    130 25/48d: "- - - and We (Allah*) send down pure water from the sky". See 11/7b above.

    131 25/49b: “- - - with it (water*), We (Allah*) may give life to a dead land - - -“. If all it takes to awaken the nature is water, the land is not dead, but alive with roots and seeds – it only looks dead. Also see 11/7a above.

    132 25/54a : “It is He (Allah*) Who created man from water - - -.” One thing which is absolutely sure, is that man is not made from water. And a wider truth: It is likely life started in water, but not created from water - in this case there is a huge difference between "in" and "from". Another thing which is as sure, is that Muhammad has made a lot of contradiction in his tales about how man – and the rest, too – was created.

    This is contradicted by 6/2, 7/12, 17/61, 32/7, 38/71, and 38/76 that tell man/Adam was made from clay, 15/26, 15/26, and 15/33 that tell man/Adam was made from sounding clay, 55/14 that tells man/Adam was made from ringing clay, 37/11 that tells man/Adam was made from sticky clay, 23/12, that tells man/Adam was made from essence of clay, 15/26, 15/28, and 15/33 that tells man/Adam was made from mud, 3/59, 22/5, 35/11, 40/67, that tell man/Adam was made from dust, 20/55 that tells man/Adam was made from earth, 96/2 that tells man/Adam was made from a clot of congealed blood, 16/4, 75/37, 76/2, 80/19, that tell man/Adam was made from semen (without explaining from where the semen came), 70/39 that tells man/Adam was made from “base material”. (Also see verse 6/2 in the chapter about the 1000+ mistakes in the Quran.) (Strictly reckoned this contradicts 28 other verses. And here minimum 28 contradictions.)

    *133 25/59a: “He (Allah*) Who created the heavens (plural and wrong) and the earth and all that is between, in six days - - -”. Wrong. It took 4.6 billion years to create the Earth like it is today. (Actually the latest numbers are 4.567 billion - and for the universe (see 51/47c)/heaven 13.7 billion). Even in the Quran you can find contradicting information saying it took 2 + 4 + 2 days = 8 days:

    1. 41/9-12: These verses tell that Allah took 2 + 4 + 2 days = 8 days to create everything. (Muslims try to tell that the first 2 days are included in the 4 days, but just read this yourself and see – what they wish you to believe is not what the Quran says. It says very clearly 2 days for one job, 4 for the next, and 2 for the last = 8 days. Some also wants you to believe that "day" in Arab = eon. For one thing it is not a correct translation, and for another read 2/117 and see if Allah should need 6 – 8 eons.)
     

    ##134 25/62a: “And it is He (Allah*) Who made the Night and the Day follow each other”. Wrong. It is the turning of the Earth in the sunshine that causes this - any god had known. See 11/7a above.

    135 26/8c: "Verily, in this (the natural products claimed made by Allah*) is a Sign: but most of them (non-Muslims*) do not believe". Very naturally as for one thing the "sign" is invalid as long as it is not proved made by Allah - and who except cheats and deceivers use invalid "proofs"? And for another thing already a number of his contemporaries saw that something was very wrong in this new religion - f.x. his claimed quotes/stories from the Bible which mostly were not from the Bible, but from legends and fairy tales based on - but different from - the Bible.

    It definitely is no proved verity/truth.

    136 26/79-81: A number of the natural occurrences Muhammad frequently and without ever proving anything - like normal for him - claimed for Allah. Claims without proofs are just cheap words.

    137 27/60a: "Or, who has created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth, and who sends you down rain from the sky?" Like so often Muhammad takes natural phenomena and without any proofs claims his god made or makes it, just like prophets of most religions do - words are that cheap as long as you can flee from proving anything. Invalid as proof or even indication for Allah, as long as it is not proved it really is Allah who made/makes it.

    138 27/60c: "Yea, with it (rain*) We (Allah*) cause to grow well-planted orchards full of beauty and delight". See 11/7a or 27/60a above.

    ##139 27/61b: “(Allah*) has made the earth firm to live in, made rivers in its midst; set thereon mountains immovable - - -”. All of this nature manages very well itself. The only things which are proved about Allah because of this or other natural phenomena, are that the Quran likes to give Allah credit for everything, and that it is not able to prove anything.

    Would an omniscient god establish all his credibility on lose words, invalid and even wrong signs, contradictions, and as invalid and wrong proofs - not to mention helpless and unclear language? - things he had to know would backfire the day humans started to find out things?

    140 27/61c: “(Allah*) made rivers in its (the Earth’s) midst - - -”. Wrong. The Quran believed the Earth was flat, and then there is a midst. But the Earth is a sphere, and the surface of a sphere has no midst. Besides: Is it Allah or rain that makes rivers? Also see f.x. 11/7a or 27/60a above.

    141 27/64b "- - - - who gives you sustenance from heaven (rain*) and earth (food*)?" More natural phenomena or simply undocumented claims used as indication for Allah. Totally invalid as long as it is not proved Allah really does this. See 11/7a above.

    142 27/86a: "- - - We (Allah*) made the Night - - - and the Day - - -". Two of the many natural phenomena Muhammad claimed for his god. They are without any value as indication or proof for Allah unless Islam proves it really is Allah who makes them.

    143 27/86b: “See they not that We (Allah*) have made the Night for them (non-Muslims/humans*) to rest in - - - Verily (though it definitely is no proved verity/truth*), in this are signs for any people that believe”. Muhammad got this 180 degrees wrong. Animals active in daytime have adapted to the periods of darkness by using it for inactivity (whereas animals active at night use the periods of light for inactivity because in day it often is more dangerous) - it is not the other way round. Also if we had had permanent light through hundreds of millions of years, life had adapted to that and to the possibility of permanent ability to do things - making humans more efficient and saving them from the extra dangers found in the darkness. This also goes for bodily and mental processes now taking place at night.

    And still we miss even a grain of proofs for that Allah is involved.

    144 28/73a: "It is out of His (Allah's*) Mercy that He has made for you Night and Day - - -". Claims as empty of value as 28/71a+b+c+d until it is proved it really is Allah who does it.

    145 29/44a: "Allah created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -". See 6/1e, 11/7a and 21/56c above.

    146 29/61c: "- - - subjected the sun and the moon (to His (Allah's*) Law) - - -". One more of Muhammad's many never proved claims, See 11/7a above.

    147 29/63a: “And if indeed thou ask them (non-Muslims*) who it is that sends down rain from the sky - - - they will certainly reply,’ Allah’”. Wrong. If they at all had mentioned a god, they had mentioned their own god – or the one of them who has to do with rain. Also see f.x. 11/7a and 29/61a+d above.

    ###148 30/8d: "- - - for a term appointed, did Allah create the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth, and all between them - - -". "- - - for a term appointed - - -" = predestined. Also: Here are natural phenomena where Muhammad like so often without any proofs or debate claims the honor of creation of for his god. One may say he only was telling about it. But when all there is are tales, and nothing - nothing - is proved through hundreds of tales during 23 years (from 610 AD to 632 AD) in spite of many requests, and in spite of even Muhammad telling proofs had been simple for Allah "if he wished", and when a lot even is clearly wrong, an "explanation" like "he only is telling about things", is not acceptable any more. Somewhere a teller of tales crosses the line between telling about things and bluffing. Muhammad clearly is bluffing.

    149 30/19a: "It is He (Allah*) who brings out the living - - -." Glorifying Allah for a natural phenomenon never proved to be his making - like so often in the Quran. Also see 11/7a and 21/56c above.

    150 30/22a: “And among His (Allah’s) Signs is the creation of the heavens (plural and wrong') - - -“. Very clearly a wrong proof – a wrong “sign” – as there are no 7 heavens. Irony? At least a contradiction of reality. See 21/56c above.

    151 30/22b: “And among His (Allah’s) Signs is the creation of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -". A totally invalid argument as long as it is not showed that it really is Allah who created it. See 2/39b and 21/56c.

    152 30/24d: "- - - He (Allah*) sends down rain - - -". See 11/7a above.

    153 30/24e: “- - - (Allah*) gives life to the earth (by means of water*) after it is dead: verily (it definitely is no proved verity/truth*), in that are Signs for those who are wise”. As soon as dry earth gets water and the other necessities, roots and seeds automatically start growing - god or no god. There is no proof in this for anything but that nature is resilient. Anyone who is wise will demand proofs before believing anything else. And again some flattery of the reader at the end.

    154 30/30c: "- - - on which He (Allah*) has made mankind - - -". See 6/2b, 11/7a and 21/56c above.

     

    155 30/40a: "It is Allah Who has created you - - -". See 6/2b, 11/7a and 21/56c above.

    156 30/46b: "- - - He (Allah*) sends the Winds - - -". See f.x. 11/7a and 30/27a above.

    157 30/46e: "- - - the ships may sail (majestically) by His (Allah's*) Commands - - -". See f.x. 11/7a and 30/27a above.

    158 30/48a: "It is Allah Who sends the wind - - -", See f.x. 11/7a or 30/27a above.

    ###159 30/48b: “- - - then does He (Allah*) spread them (the clouds*) in the sky as he wills, and break them into fragments, until thou seest raindrops issue from the midst thereof - - -”. It is not possible to get it more wrong than this. What happens is not that the clouds are broken apart to become raindrops, but straight opposite: That droplets come together to form drops. No further comments. But ANY god had known better. Then who made the Quran? Also see 16/65 – 25/49 – 30/24 – 36/33 – 50/11.

    160 30/48c: "- - - they (humans*) do rejoice (for rain*) - - -". In Arabia they do - but hardly f.x. in England or Amazonas. If Allah had existed and been a universal god, he had used examples which had made everyone rejoice, if he was involved in the making of the Quran. An Arabism - see 4/13d above. Then who made the Quran?

    161 30/49: Like 30/48c, but stronger.

    162 30/50b: "- - - He (Allah*) gives life to the earth after its death - - -". In this case Muhammad refers to the desert coming alive after rain. But is it Allah who produces the rain? - or nature? - or some other god? Besides this phenomenon you only find in dry area mainly - any god knows all kinds of areas and had used a more universally understandable picture. But Muhammad mainly knew dry area. One more thing: If water is all it takes to make the area flourish, it was not dead, it just looked so - it was alive with seeds and roots. Also see 11/7a above.

    163 30/51a: "And if We (Allah*) send but a Wind - - -". See. f.x. 11/7a and 30/27a above.

    164 30/54a: "It is Allah who created you - - -". See f.x. 6/2b, 11/7a, 21/56c or 30/27a above.

    ###165 31/10b: “He created the heavens (plural and wrong*) without any pillars that you can see - - -”. The Quran tells that the 7 heavens rest on invisible pillars (of course they need pillars - if not they would fall down!!!). Nowadays even Islam knows this is wrong, and the statements have to be explained away. We have f.x. been told from Islamic information centers on Internet that: “- everyone with an IQ more than 60 of course understand that that means the pillars do not exist”.

    But we know well the difference between “invisible” and “not existing”.

    We also remember that the Quran - and Islam and Muslims - says the book is to be understood literally - "clear meaning" - (if nothing else is said). About the statement that what is said in the Quran has clear meaning - see 3/7, 11/1b, 19/97, 26/2, 27/1, 28/2, 41/3, 43/2, 44/2, 44/58, 54/32. No doubt.

    Some proof for his power - a totally laughable claim scientifically.

    166 31/10e: “He set on earth mountains - - -”. The mountains are not set (another place in the Quran it even says “dropped“ in the original text) - they without exception have grown up.

    167 31/10f: “He set on earth mountains standing firm, lest it should shake with you - - -”. Originally Muslim scholars say that this refers to the (wrong) danger that the pancake-like (?), flat disc which is Earth, could start shaking or wobbling, then to tumble and turn and drop you off - and some such scholars still admits this is the real meaning. But even if we accept Islam’s modern “explanation” - that this has to do with earth quakes, it is completely wrong. Mountains do not hinder earth quakes. On the contrary: Earthquakes very often are connected to the same processes which build the mountains, whether this is tectonic or volcanic activity (when we say “very often” in connection to tectonic activity, the reason is that earthquakes also are made from tectonic plates just sliding past each other without building mountains). The fact is that in some cases mountains - or because of varieties in big lakes or masses of snow in the mountains giving varying weight - can cause earthquakes (source: New Scientist). (There f.x. are some more earthquakes in the northern part of the Earth during winter because of the weight of the snow, and there also often is more snow in the mountains than in the low-land, producing imbalance - also here the source is New Scientist.)

    168 31/10g: "- - - He (Allah*) scattered through it (Earth*) beasts - - -". See 11/7a above.

    169 31/10h: "We (Allah*) send down rain from the sky - - -". See 11/7a above.

    170 31/10i: "- - - (Allah*) produce on earth every kind of noble creature - - -". See 11/7a and 21/56c above.

    171 31/29b: “- - - Allah merges - - - Day into Night - - -.” This is one of the many natural phenomena Muhammad hijacked for his god without any proof or documentation. It is totally void of any value as a proof for Allah unless it is proved that it really is Allah who spins the Earth in the light from the sun – the real reason for the alternation of day and night. Without such proofs, this just is another number of cheap, valueless words which anyone can use free of charge for his own god or gods. Also see 3/27 – 24/44 -25/62 – 31/29a (just above) – 35/12 – 39/5 – 40/61 – 41/37 – 45/5 57/6. And see 11/7a above.

    172 31/29c: “- - - He (Allah*) has subjected the sun and the moon (to His Law) - - -“. A nice proof for Allah - - - but only if it is proved that it really is he that moves them in their trajectories - and he who has made the laws of nature. Without such proofs, these just are cheap words in a valueless claim anyone can use totally free of charge – for Allah or for any other god, real or invented.

    173 31/29d: “Seest thou not - - - that He (Allah*) has subjected the sun and the moon (to His Law), each running its course - - -.” Wrong. Relative to the Earth the sun is fixed and it is the Earth that is moving. (“Explanation” from some Muslims: We drop the fact that it here is talk about the relative movements between the Earth and the sun – obvious partly because it is talk about movement relative to the observer on Earth, and obvious from the fact that is talk about the movements of both the sun and the moon – and we drop the fact that the verse started with “Seest thou not - - -“, and find the obvious meaning in occurrences that man at that time simply could not see as they had no telescopes: Muhammad told about the sun’s course around the galaxy, they claim - once every 225 million years (new numbers from 2009 indicate that the stars are moving somewhat faster and hence that this number is a bit lower). Well, it could have been obvious, if they had explained why they settled for just that movement – because the galaxy is moving around in the Local Group (a small cluster of galaxies), which again is moving around in our local Super Group (cluster of a couple of thousands galaxies), which again is moving towards some enormous centre of gravity called The Great Attractor - - - which again may be on its way somewhere. (Muhammad clearly had not the faintest idea about the real connections between Earth, moon and sun – any god had known everything exactly. And Muslims are eager finding "explanations" so they do not have to see the mistakes.) Also see 33/29ab - 36/40 – 39/5 – 39/38 - 91/2

    Are they just cherry picking the arguments they like here, and which seemingly are usable, no matter whether it really fits or not? Well, it would not be the first time.

    174 31/31b: "Seest thou (opponent of Muhammad*) not that the ships sail through the Ocean by the Grace of Allah?". We only are able to see two things here: We see that the ships sailed through the oceans by means of the wind. And we see that there nowhere is proved that Allah has anything to do with the wind at all. Also see 11/7a above.

    175 31/34d: "It is He (Allah*) Who sends down rain - - -". See f.x. 11/7a or 31/29a above.

    176 32/4a: “It is Allah Who has created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth, and all between them - - -". See 11/7a and 21/56c above.

    177 32/4b: “It is Allah Who has created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth, and all between them, in six Days - - -”. One simple and polite remark: Very wrong. And another: A contradiction to the verses in the Quran which tell 2 + 4 + 2 = 8 days.

    1. 41/9-12: These verses tell that Allah took 2 + 4 + 2 days = 8 days to create everything. (Muslims tries to tell that the first 2 days are included in the 4 days, but just read this yourself and see – what they wish you to believe is not what the Quran says. It says very clearly 2 days for one job, 4 for the next, and 2 for the last = 8 days. Some also wants you to believe that day in Arab = eon. For one thing it is not a correct translation, and for another read 2/117 and see if Allah should need 6 – 8 eons.)
     

    Also strongly contradicting science.

    178 32/7c: “He began the creation of man with (nothing more than) clay”. Wrong. Man was not created from clay. See 6/2b above.

    179 32/8a: “And (Allah*) made his (man’s) progeny from a quintessence of the nature of a fluid despised - - -”. Only half the truth. Muhammad believed the semen was a kind of seed planted in the woman – he did not know about the egg cell. Any god had known. Then who made the Quran?

    180 32/9b: "But He (Allah*) fashioned him (Adam*) in due proportions, and breathed into him something of His spirit (= life*)." A bit different from what natural science says.

    181 32/27a: "And do they not see that We (Allah*) do drive the rain - - -". Once more a natural phenomenon claimed for Allah without the slightest proof - just like priests of pagan gods do as cheaply. A question: If the Quran is a made up book, is then Islam a pagan religion?

    182 34/12b: “And to Solomon (We (Allah*) made) the Wind (obedient) - - -.” Islam will have to prove that this is not just one more storey “borrowed” from a legend/fairy tale. (It is not from the Bible, and is sure the Jews had mentioned this - to glorify their big king - if it had been true).

    183 35/1b: “- - - Allah, who created (out of nothing) the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -”. In a way it is nearly correct that the heaven as we see it, is made of nearly nothing, as an optical illusion is made from photons = nearly nothing (but Muhammad was very wrong all the same, as he/the Quran believed the heavens consisted of something material). But the Earth definitely is not made from nothing - not even if one refers to Big Bang. And Muhammad's heavens also were material ones – if not f.x. the stars could not be fastened to one of the heavens). We may add that the 7 heavens is a construction taken from old Greek and Persian wrong astronomy – they used 7 (often plus an extra shell for the fixed stars to be fastened to) invisible, but strong heavens, to try to explain the celestial movements. A fact Muslims never mention.

    184 35/9a: "It is Allah Who sends forth the Winds, (etc.*) - - -". See 11/7a above.

    185 35/9c: "- - - and We (Allah*) drive them (the clouds*) - - -". Only possible if Allah exists and is something supernatural - but also see 11/7a above.

    186 35/9d: “- - - and revive the earth therewith (with rain) after its death - - -”. Land that can be revived by only adding rain is not dead. It is alive with seeds and perhaps roots. Also see 11/7a above.

    187 35/13a: “He (Allah*) merges Night into Day, and he merges Day into Night - - -“. The alternation between day and night happens because the Earth spins around, swimming in the sunshine in space. Muhammad very often takes natural phenomena and calls them proofs/signs for/from Allah. It is untrue unless Islam first really proves both that this is done by a god, and that this god is Allah. But Islam proves nothing essential – it only claims and states and demands blind and naïve belief without documentation - - - even in the face of solid proofs for that something is very wrong.

    188 35/13b: "- - - He (Allah*) has subjected the sun and the moon (to His Law) - - -". An easy claim, but like normal for the Quran not a proof.

    189 35/27a: "- - - Allah sends down rain from the sky - - -". Muhammad often took natural phenomena and claimed it was Allah who made it. Not one single of these claims was ever proved, in spite of requests for proofs for Allah and for Muhammad's connection to a god. Also see 11/7a above.

    190 35/27b: "With it (rain*) We (Allah*) then bring out produce of various colors". See 11/7a above.

    191 36/22a: "- - - serve Him (Allah*) Who created me - - -". Wrong - man was not created, but developed from earlier primates. Besides: See 6/2b, 11/7a and 21/56c above.

    192 36/33b: “A sign for them is the earth that is dead: We (Allah*) do give it life - - - “. From other parts of the Quran, we know it here means “by adding rain”. But a land which comes to life just by adding rain, is not dead - it is alive with seeds and perhaps roots. Also see 11/7a above.

    193 36/33-35: Muhammad claims nearly all and everything of natural phenomena as indications for Allah and/or for his glorification, without even one single time trying to prove that it really is Allah who is behind it. It all is just unproved words and claims - just like so many other religions. Invalid as indication, not to mention as proofs, as long as it is not first proved that it is Allah's work. Also see 11/7a above.

    194 36/34: "And We (Allah*) produce therein orchards with date-palms and vines, and We causes springs to gush forth therein - - -". See 11/7a above.

    195 36/36c: “Glory to Allah, Who created in pairs all things that the earth produces - - -". See f.x. 11/7a and 21/56c above.

    196 36/36d: “- - - Allah, Who created in pairs all things that the earth produces - - -”. Wrong. Only multi-cellular plants and animals are in pairs - and far from all of those, too. No uni-cellular life exists in pairs - and they are far more abundant both in numbers and species. Besides there is quite a number of multi-cellular beings that propagates asexually and thus do not exist in pairs – up to and included sponges, etc., some fish and some reptiles. Not to mention among plants and trees. Plants and trees also often have both genders on the same plant/tree, and thus do not exist in pairs. Contradicted by biological and zoological - and botanical - facts.

    197 36/37b: "We (Allah*) withdrew therefrom (from the night*) the Day - - -". See f.x. 11/7a above.

    198 36/37c: "We (Allah*) withdrew therefrom (from the night*) the Day - - -". Wrong. The day is not withdrawn from the night. It is the night which is a small exception from the eternal day around the sun. Any god had known this, but Muhammad not. Then who made the Quran?

    199 36/38a: “And the sun runs his course for a period determined to him - - -”. The sun runs no course as related to the Earth, though that was the accepted astronomy of that time. It is the Earth which revolves – around itself and around the sun. See 36/38c+d+e below.

    200 36/71a: "See they (humans*) not that it is We (Allah*) Who have created for them - - - cattle - - - ?" Well, cattle existed for eons before man found out he could utilize them some 15ooo years ago. They simply were part of the nature and the fauna, not created for the humans.

    Today it may seem that deer may become cattle. When in case did Allah create this cattle?

    201 36/77a: "Doth not man see that it is We (Allah*) Who created him from sperm?". Wrong - even if we overlook the fact that here once more Muhammad claims a natural phenomenon as glorification for his god without the slightest proof for that it is true, this is wrong:

    1. In normal English "created man" means to have created the "animal" race called "man". But see 6/2b above.
    2. But even if it here should be meant each and every human born the natural way, it is wrong, as a human is not made from semen, but from one cell of semen plus one egg cell which fuses together and start growing. Muhammad believed semen was a kind of seed which might start growing when "planted" in a woman - he even did not know about the egg cell, which any god had done.
     

    Also see 11/7a above.

    202 36/81a: "Is not He (Allah*) Who created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -". But was it he - among all the gods claiming credit for that creating - who created it? There only are the lose, never proved words of an unreliable man (al-Taqiyya, Kitman, Hilah, even broken oaths, deceit, and betrayals) with strong motives (f.x. lust for power) for telling tales, like many false prophets do and have done throughout the times. Only on this man's undocumented claims does this unproved claim rest - and the same man's other claims often are proved wrong and a few times even clear lies, literally far more than a thousand times. The chance for it to be true is feeble to say the least of it. A very minimum demand is that Islam proves something before they can expect to be believed. Also see 11/7a above.

    Besides science tells that the Earth (see 51/47c) was created by nature.

    ###203 37/6a: “We (Allah*) have indeed decked the lower heaven (in) stars - - -". One more of Muhammad's high-jacking of natural phenomena to glorify his god - in this case like in many others with the bad luck that his "proof" is totally wrong - there exists no lower heaven, not to mention a lower heaven decked with stars.

    ###204 37/6b: “We (Allah*) have indeed decked the lower heaven (in) stars - - -”. The Quran tells this in some varieties some places in the book: The stars are fastened to the lowest of the 7 heavens (which also means that the heavens have to be made from something material - if not it was not possible to fasten the stars there). The stars also are lower than the moon, as other places in the Quran tell that the moon are in between the heavens - in addition to that it here is said the stars are fastened to the lowest heaven (37/6, 41/12), and as also the moon was fasten to a heaven according to the astronomy of that time, in addition to that the Quran tells it is between the heavens, it has to be higher than the lowest heaven and the stars. The mistake actually is borrowed from Greek and/or Persian astronomy at the time of Muhammad (a fact mistake - any baby god had known better. Muslims generally try to evade questions about this - or give you a lot of diffuse words (and never tell it is from local, wrong astronomy)). We have hardly ever seen a reasonable – not correct, but at least logically reasonable - explanation of this mistake, except the standard one when something is so wrong that even “explanations” are not possible: It is “figurative”, "allegorical” - or something similar - explanations or stories.

    ###205 37/6c: “We (Allah*) have indeed decked the lower heaven with - - - stars - - -”. The nature has produced billions of stars - of which man with his naked eyes is able to see 6ooo-7ooo. But in no way he used them to deck a non-existing lower heaven (below the moon according to the astronomy of that time in Arabia - - - and to the Quran as the moon is "between the heavens") - and neither do nature use the stars as weapons (shooting stars) to chase away evil spirits or jinns like in the Quran, next verse (37/7). Also if the stars - suns - were below the moon, Earth had been pretty hot (in addition to all other nonsense this verse would imply if it had been true, compared to the reality). Is this a proof for that nature knows what it is doing, whereas Muhammad was bluffing?

    Actually it is not 100% correct to say that Muhammad told everything about the heavens according to the astronomy of that time. If we remember our Greek astronomy correctly, it was like this:

    1. The outer layer or ceiling: The stars.
    2. The 7. Heaven Saturn.
    3. The 6. Heaven Jupiter.
    4. The 5. heaven Mars.
    5. The 4. Heaven The Sun.
    6. The 3. Heaven Venus.
    7. The 2. Heaven Mercury.
    8. The 1. Heaven The Moon.
     

    The outer layer some "astronomers" reckoned to be the 8. heaven. We stress that you may find old "charts" with a somewhat different sequence of the heavenly bodies. But as far as we have found Islam is the only one with the stars fixed to the 1. Heaven. The Quran is wrong even compared to the Greek astronomy - though not according to Arab astronomy it seems.

    206 37/96: "But Allah has created you - - -". One more never proved claim - a claim most priests in most religions make on behalf of their (relevant) god(s). Also see 6/2b above.

    207 38/75: “- - - one (man*) whom I (Allah*) have created with my hands - - -.” See 6/2b, 11/7a, and 38/71 above.

    208 39/5a: “He (Allah*) created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth in true (proportions)”. True to Muhammad’s picture of the heaven(s) and the Earth - the Earth f.x. is flat like a disk in the Quran. And 7 heavens + 7 earths (65/12b below. Also see ALLAH, THE CLAIMED CREATOR, verse 65/12b). And just not “in true proportions”. Wrong. Also see 11/7a above.

    209 39/5c: “He makes the Night overlap the Day, and the Day overlap the Night - - -”. Wrong. This is done by the Earth's own spinning in the sunshine in space, as the night really is just a shadow. If Islam pretends something else, they will have to produce real proofs - not just cheap words. “Strong statements demand strong proofs”. Any god had known this - not Muhammad. Yes, any god could have proved himself for the future just by telling things like that - no miracle necessary. Then who composed the Quran? Contradicted by astronomical fact!. Also see 11/7a above.

    210 39/5d: "He (Allah*) has subjected the sun and the moon (to His law) - - -". See 11/7a above.

    211 39/6b: "He (Allah*) created you (all) from a single person (Adam*) - - -". Wrong. According to science, man developed from earlier primates. Also: If there were only one couple, the DNA-pool would be too small for survival of the race (this actually is a problem for the tale about the animals and the ark, too).

    212 39/6c: "- - - then (Allah*) created, of like nature, his (Adam's*) mate (Eve - the name is nowhere given in the Quran, only in the Bible*) - - -". One more never proved claim in the Quran. But see 39/6b just above.

    213 39/6e: “He (Allah*) sent down for you eight head of cattle in pairs - - -”. From other places in the Quran we know the cattle were: 2 cows, 2 sheep, 2 goats, 2 camels = 4 pairs = 8 heads. That is wrong, as the Quran is for the entire world: There also are water buffalo (Asia), reindeer (in the north), lama (S. America), the alpaca (S. America), the guanaco (S. America), the vicuna (S. America - the 4 from S. America are distantly related to the camel) - the yak (Asia), and (Indian) elephant - and perhaps others (+ horse, donkey, etc. (and the interesting animal pigs, also created by Allah according to Islam, but for some reason which nobody knows taboo for Jews and Muslims – the meat is tasty and of high quality - - - but an abomination according to the Quran, without any explanation. There are theories that it is because pig is a dirty animal – but in the wild they are not. Another theory is the danger of trichinosis – but that is easy to check for. Yet another is that the pig eats the same kind of food as people, and therefore became too “expensive” for many societies. But nobody really knows and the Quran does not explain.)) Besides cattle were not created or “sent down”, but developed. Any god knew this – Muhammad not. Who made the Quran? Contradicted by zoological facts. As for "8 heads" and DNA see 39/6b above.

    214 39/6f: “He (Allah*) makes you, in the womb of your mothers, in stages, one after the other - - -.” According to old Greek medicine (Galen, Aristotle), the fetus developed in 4 stages. Modern medicine disagrees – it is a continuous process.

    215 39/21a: This verse is one of the many places where Muhammad claims the honor of natural phenomena for his god - always without the slightest proof. Just like so many other self proclaimed prophets or believers do for their relevant god(s). Totally without any value as an indication - not to mention a proof - for Allah, as long as it is not proved that Allah really did it. Worse: Who is it who has to rely on invalid proof and fast talk? Cheats and deceivers.

    216 39/21b: "Seest thou (a person*) not that Allah sends down rain - - -". No, we do not. We see that nature does so, but it is impossible to see Allah behind it. Even if there should happen to be a god behind it, it may as well be another god - f.x Yahweh. But most likely nature manages this itself. Islam will have to prove claims like this to be believed.

    *217 39/21d: “- - - He (Allah*) makes it (nature) dry up and crumble away. Truly, in this, is a Message of remembrance to men of understanding.” Allah does not have to do anything for this to happen - nature itself does it all alone just by sending the rain to other places for some time. But of course to be able to control the nature, gives status and seemingly power as long as you do not have to prove anything at all, and as long as uneducated or naïve or religiously blind followers are satisfied with that “Allah and His Messenger know best”. Also note the implicated flattery.

    218 39/46b: "(Allah*). Creator of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth!" Often claimed in the Quran, never proved anywhere. See f.x. 6/1e above.

    219 40/13b: "(Allah*) sendeth down Sustenance (in this case rain*) to you from the sky - - -". One of the many, many places in the Quran where Muhammad claims - always without any proof - a natural phenomenon as glorification and proof for his god - - - just as easily and cheaply as any believer in any religion claims just the same phenomena for his god(s), as long as he can flee from the questions of proofs or evade such questions with the glorification of blind belief - together with words the cheapest of all money for swindlers, deceivers, etc. Also see 11/7a above.

    *220 40/61a: “It is Allah Who made the Night for you - - - and the Day - - -”. Wrong. It is the sun and the revolving of the Earth which makes night and day. This is just another place where Muhammad takes a natural phenomenon, states without proof that this is done or made by Allah, and then tells or indicates that this is a proof for Allah or Islam. As a proof, it is logically completely invalid, as it is not proved that it is Allah who is behind the phenomena - and as said before: Use of invalid proofs, etc., etc., is the hallmark of someone deliberately not speaking the truth and trying to delude or deceive or cheat somebody. (For some reason or other Islam and its Muslims seldom claim that Islam is the religion of honesty.)

    221 40/67a: “It is He (Allah*) Who has created you from dust - - -”. Wrong. Man was not made from dust. See 6/2b above.

    222 40/67b: “(Allah then made you*) from a sperm drop - - -”. Wrong. You were not made from a sperm drop. You were made from the fusing of a sperm cell and an egg cell - the egg cell even is by far the biggest. From other places in the Quran it is clear that Muhammad believed the sperm was “seeds to plant” in a woman, and there started to grow to become a fetus and then a baby. Any one inch tall god had known that this claim was wrong. Then who made the Quran?

    223 40/68a: "It is He (Allah*) who gives Life - - -". This interesting claim appears several places in the Quran - interesting because it never is proved, whereas both Jesus and Yahweh proved they have the power (if the Bible and/or the Quran is/are reliable on this point).

    224 40/79: "It is Allah Who made cattle for you - - -". Typical the Quran - claim glory for Allah, but never able to prove even a comma of the claims. Invalid as indication or proof for Allah. Also see 11/7a above.

    225 41/9d: “(Allah*) created the earth in two Days - - -”. Wrong. It took the better part of 4.567 billion years to get it like today - and hundreds of millions of years just to make it fit for life.

    ###226 41/9-12a: “(Allah*) created the earth in two Days - - -. He set on the (earth) mountains standing firm high above it, and bestowed blessings on the earth, and measured therein all things to give them (living entities*) nourishment in due proportions, in four Days - - - (and*) So he completed them (the sky*) as seven firmaments, in two Days - - -”. This makes 8 days - very inconsistent and very wrong compared to what the Quran normally says: 6 days. (Not to mention the 4.567 billion years science has found out). One more contradiction. We have been told we have to be very stupid who does not understand that the two first days are included in the next four. We admit that is the only way Islam can try to “explain” this away - but that very clearly is not what the text says. (“The Message of the Quran” has “doctored” the Quran a little (at least in the English translation) saying "two eons" to make the “explanation” not quite so dumb - but only “not quite so”, as Yusuf Ali’s translation is very clear. It also is a typical Muslim "explanation away" - "solving" one part of a problem, just to crash headlong into another; here: How do you place a few eons into 6 or 8 days? You find a number of "explanations" like this in Islam - they "explains" details, but forget the big picture, and the big picture makes a lie or even a joke out of the "explanation". But it partly works, because many Muslims so strongly wants to believe or have so little education - at least in critical thinking - that they do not see the new mistake or they simply are so little used to use their brain for critical thinking, that they are unable to compare the new claim to their own knowledge and thus unable to see that also the new claim is a mistake).

    ###227 41/9-12b: “(Allah*) created the earth in two Days - - -. He set on the (earth) mountains standing firm high above it, and bestowed blessings on the earth, and measured therein all things to give them (living beings*) nourishment in due proportions, in four Days - - - (and*) So he completed them (the sky*) as seven firmaments (see 37/6c), in two Days - - -”. This makes 8 days - very inconsistent and very wrong compared to what the Quran which all other places says: 6 days. (Not to mention the 4.567 billion years science has found out). One more contradiction.

    ###228 41/9-12c: “(Allah*) created the earth in two Days - - -. He set on the (earth) mountains standing firm high above it, and bestowed blessings on the earth, and measured therein all things to give them (living entities*) nourishment in due proportions, in four Days - - - (and*) So he completed them (the sky*) as seven firmaments (see 37/6c) (plural and wrong*), in two Days - - -”. This makes 8 days - very inconsistent and very wrong compared to what the Quran normally says: 6 days. (Not to mention the 13.7 billion years science has found out - or 4.567 billion years for Earth - or hundreds of millions of years till it got the first primitive life). One more contradiction. We - as said - have been told we have to be very stupid who does not understand that the two first days are included in the next four. We admit that is the only way Islam can try to “explain” this away - but that very clearly is not what the text says. (“The Message of the Quran has “doctored” the Quran a little (at least in the English translation) to make the “explanation” not quite so dumb - but only “not quite so”, as Yusuf Ali’s translation is very clear).

    This means that everything was made in 6 or 8 days – a small intern contradiction. But nothing compared with the contradiction reality makes: 13.7 billion years.

    229 41/9-12d: These verses tell that Allah created the Earth in 2 days, the mountains and everything on Earth in 4 days and finally the heaven (“the seven firmaments” – plural and wrong) in 2 days. 2 + 4 + 2 = 8 days. But:

    1. 7/54: “- - - Allah, Who created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth in six Days - - -.”
    2. 10/3: “- - - Allah, Who created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth in six Days - - -.”
    3. 11/7: “He (Allah*) is it Who created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth in six Days”.
    4. 25/59: “He (Allah*) Who created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth and all that is between, in six days - - -.”
    5. 50/38: “We (Allah*) created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth and all between them in six Days - - -.”
    6. 57/4: “He (Allah*) is it Who created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth in Six Days”.
     

    (6 contradictions.)

    230 41/10a: “He set on the (earth) mountains standing firm, high above it - - -“. Wrong. The mountains were not set (down) on Earth – they grew up.

    231 41/10b: “He set on the (earth) mountains standing firm, high above it - - -“. The Quran claims that without the firm mountains the (flat) Earth could start shaking. In reality it talks about that it could start wobbling and tip around (and thus drop you off). Modern Muslims try to claim that the Quran means it hinders earthquakes - but even this is wrong, as mountains do not hinder quakes - on the contrary they sometimes are connected to them (For one thing the making of mountains often gives earthquakes, and for another the imbalance which mountains represents - f.x. enlarged by water or snow - sometimes even causes earthquakes.) Any god had known this.

    232 41/10c: “He set on the (earth) mountains standing firm - - - - - and measured therein all things to give them (animals or humans?*) nourishment in due proportions, in 4 days - - -”. Wrong. That took millions of years - only the cooling down of the Earth to make any kind of life possible, took at least 300 million years. And the development from the first life to the first "real" animal took some 2.5 - 3.5 billion years (science has believed it took something like one billion years or more before the first primitive life happened, but these last few years they have found that may be it happened a bit earlier). The first "real" animals came in late Pre-Cambrium, in the period some 500 – 600 million years ago, that a few years ago was named Ediacarian. (And then animal life “exploded” during the next period named Cambrium.)

    *233 41/12a: “So He (Allah*) completed them as seven firmaments - - -”. (Firmament is another name for the heaven or sky – mainly used for the night sky). But there are no 7 firmaments. All the same you find these claims about 7 heavens/firmaments/tracts in 2/29d+e, 17/44a, 23/17a, 23/86a, 41/12a+b, 65/12a, 67/3a+b and 71/15a+b - all together the Quran mentions "heavens" in plural at least 199 times; there is no doubt the Quran means there are 7 heavens (and as the stars are fastened to the lowermost of them - f.x. 67/5a - they have to be material ones - if not the stars could not be fastened to it). In 67/3 you also are told that the heavens are placed one above the other, which means they of course are built successively higher above the Earth - which also is clear from most places in the Quran where the place of the heavens are indicated. Some modern Muslims try to place the heavens in space, deep space included. But among others 67/3 prohibits this, as "up" and "down" ("one above the other") has no meaning as part of the real space. Also see 37/6c above).

    By the way: 65/12b also claims there are 7 Earths, and gives their names according to Islam.

    234 41/12b: “So He (Allah*) created them (heaven(s)*) as seven firmaments (wrong - there only is one*) in two days - - - Such is the Decree of (Him) the Exalted in Might“. Just look up, and you see the firmament - it may be especially impressive at night. Nature at its most colossal, even though it looks petite from Earth. Did any god make it? Was that god in case Allah? There are few reasons to believe so, and definitely no proofs. And what is 100% sure: It was not made in two days - it all started 13.7 billion years ago according to science, and may be the first stars became visible not much later - - - and the creation is still not completed.

    Allah decreed this in the Quran - a most unlucky choice for a “proof, as it is wrong.

    Sometimes our impression is that Muhammad/the Quran behaves like some second rate politicians: They steal arguments and claims, then run in front of people and say they are leading them - in this case leading them to stolen riches, slaves and power. Muhammad/the Quran finds good phenomena and tells that Allah has made them. Only statements, only claims, and only words any “prophet” for any god can use just as cheaply - and sometimes like here 120% wrong. Impressive proofs - but for what?

    Also see 11/7a and 37/6c above, and ALLAH, THE CLAIMED CREATOR, verse 65/12b.

    ####235 41/12e: “And We (Allah*) adorned the lower heaven with lights (= stars*) - - -”. This is one of the points Muslims are very reluctant to try to explain, as it is obviously and impossibly wrong - and impossible to “explain” away in any believable manner. We know from old astronomy that the moon and the planets were fastened to different heavens, and that means that the stars have to be between us and the moon (the Quran another place also says that the moon is between the heavens) - at less than some 384ooo km distance - as the stars were fastened to the lowest heaven (37/6c, 37/6-7, 41/12). In addition to all the other impossibilities, humans would not be even crisps in a millisecond. Once more: Any existing god knew this, Muhammad not. Contradicted by almost anything – except as said: Not by fairy tales. Is Allah non-existing? And who composed the Quran?

    236 41/15f: "- - - Allah, Who created them (people*) - - -". This interesting, but never proved claim surfaces a number of times in the Quran - interesting because Allah never was able to prove he was able to create anything at all, whereas Yahweh/Jesus proved this many times if either the Bible or the Quran tells the truth on this point. Also see 6/2b, 11/7a, 21/56c+e above.

    237 41/21b: "He (Allah*) created you (people*)- - -". See 6/2b, 11/7a, 21/56c and 41/15f above.

    238 41/37a: “Among His (Allah’s*) Signs are the Night and the Day - - -”. The night and the day are made by the sun and the revolving of the Earth - physical facts at work. If Islam claims the sun and the Earth and the physical laws are made by Allah, they will have to prove it - it is nowhere proved neither in the Quran nor in the Hadiths - cheap words and invalid signs anyone can use, f.x. any priest in any religion: Baal made the sun and makes it rise in the east. Allah can neither unmake it nor make it rise in the west - then Baal is a real god and Allah a false one. It only is cheap words which prove not a thing, except that resorting to such fake arguments are among the hallmarks of cheats, swindlers, and deceivers, which may prove or indicate something or other about the one(s) using such arguments.

    239 41/37d: "- - - adore Allah, Who created them (the sun and the moon*) - - -". The same claim as most religions put forth - and just as reliable, as the Quran is never able to prove anything at all, just claims and words and glorification of blindness in religion (blind belief). Also see 37/6c above.

    240 41/39a: "And among His (Allah's*) Signs is this: thou seest the earth barren and desolate; but when We (Allah*) sends down rain, it is stirred to life - - -". Once more a natural phenomenon Muhammad claims for glorification of or proof for his god - like always without the slightest proof for that it really is Allah who does it - - - just like similar claims from other religions. Islam ONLY is words, not one single proof. Also see 177/a above. And all only on the basis of words from a man even the Quran and other central Islamic books tell was not very reliable, plus wanting riches for attracting and keeping followers, and power - - - and women. Bluff?

    Also see 11/7a above.

    241 41/39c: “He (Allah*) Who gives life to the (dead) earth (by sending rain*)”. Earth which comes alive just by adding water, is not dead - only looks like that. It is alive with seeds and perhaps roots.

    242 41/39d: "- - - We (Allah*) send down rain - - -". Allah - or some-one else - or nature? See 11/7a above.

    243 42/11a: "(He (Allah*) is) the Creator of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth". Often claimed in the Quran, never proved anywhere. See 11/7a and 21/56c above.

    244 42/28a: "He (Allah*) is the One that sends down rain - - -". Muhammad is totally shameless when it comes to use natural phenomena without the slightest documentation, for glorification and "proof" for his god - just like any pagan priest. All such cases are entirely without value as long as it is not proved it really is Allah who does it. The only thing the use of invalid claims "signs"/"proof" really prove, is that the user has no real arguments or proofs - if he had had, he had used them instead. More sinister: Who is it normally who uses invalid arguments and "proofs"? - the cheat, charlatan, swindler, and deceiver.

    Also see 11/7a above.

    245 42/29b: "- - - the creation (by Allah*) of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth". Often claimed, never proved. See 11/7a and 21/56c+e above.

    246 42/29d: "(Allah created*) the living creatures - - -". See 11/7a and 42/29b above.

    247 42/33b: “If it be His (Allah’s) Will, He can still the Wind - - -”. That we can, too - - - as long as we do not have to prove it.

    *248 43/10a: “(Allah*) has made for you the earth - - -". See 11/7a, 21/56c, 41/15f above and 65/12 below.

    *249 43/10b: “(Allah*) has made for you the earth (like a carpet), spread out - - -”. The Quran many places says the Earth is flat - (it was such a matter of course, that it never is mentioned explicitly, but it always is compared to something flat) - perhaps round like a disk, but flat - - - like a carpet. Wrong.

    *250 43/10c: “- - - and (Allah*) has made for you roads - - -”. We have never heard about a road made by a god, except perhaps in fairy tales. The paths/roads in Arabia were so old that no one remembered the start of them, and then Muhammad could tell things like this. But it is obviously not true. Similar claim in 16/15. Just for the record: This - like so much more in the Quran - is not from the Bible.

    251 43/11a: "(Allah*) sends down - - - rain - - -". There are very many cases like this in the Quran, where Muhammad claims his god makes the natural phenomena - just like the same phenomena are claimed for many a relevant pagan god like Allah/al-Lah was originally. Muhammad never proves such claims - it only is lose words resting on nothing. Also see 11/7a above.

    252 43/11d: “- - - We (Allah*) rise to life therewith (with rain*) a land that is dead; even so will ye be raised (from the dead) - - -”. The comparison is wrong - and a god had known it. In the first case the DNA (the "molecules of life") is alive and well and ready to sprout. In a dead body everything is finished - also the DNA and all its possibility to go against entropy (a term from physics which can be said to be a measure for chaos and states of energy). There is critical difference in that. But then the Quran has a strong tendency to give Allah credit without any documentation for natural occurrences. Also see 2/164 – 7/57 – 35/9 – 41/39 – 43/11 - 45/5. As for Allah and creation also see 6/2b, 11/7a, 21/56c and not least 41/15f above, and for resurrection see 7/158i and 5/110d above.

    253 43/12d: "(Allah*) has made for you (humans*) ships - - -". No comments - and none necessary; wrong as wrong can be - they all were handmade and to designs man had found out little by little through millennia.

    254 43/12e: "(Allah*) has made for you (humans*) - - - cattle - - -". See 11/7a above.

    255 43/27a: "- - - Him (Allah*) who made me (Abraham*) - - -". This interesting claim that Allah created the humans, you meet many places in the Quran. The reason why it is interesting, is that neither Muhammad nor Allah ever was able to prove anything about creation, whereas Yahweh proved his power on that point many times - if either the Quran or the Bible tells the truth about just that (f.x. 1. Kings 17/22, 2. Kings 4/34-35, Matt. 27/52, Mark 5/41, Luke 7/15, John 11/44, Acts 9/40, Acts 20/10, and the Quran 3/49b, 5/110i).

    256 44/38a: "We (Allah*) created not the heavens (plural and wrong*), the earth, and all between them, merely in (idle) sport". There is nowhere proved he did so for any other reason. too.

    257 45/4a: "And in the creation of yourself, and the fact that animals are scattered (throughout the earth), are signs for those of assured Faith". But the claimed signs in case have no relevance to Allah unless it first is proved that it really is caused by Allah. As it is, any believer in any religion can do just the same as Muhammad: Claim it for glorification and indication of his god - totally free of charge, but also totally without real value as indication or proof, as long as it is not proved the god really causes it. After all "a proof is one or more proved facts which can give only one conclusion".

    Also see 11/7a above.

    258 45/4b: "- - - creation - - -". There often are claims in the Quran about Allah creating things and living beings, but there never is anything but words, and words are cheap. The situation is extra interesting because if either the Bible or the Quran tells the truth on this point, Yahweh on the other hand, proved his power here.

    259 45/5f: “(Allah*) revives thereafter the earth after its death (by sending rain*) - - -”. One thing is that the Quran in no way proves that it is Allah who sends the rain - the book has a strong tendency to give Allah credit without any documentation for natural occurrences. But: If earth comes alive just because of water, it was not dead - it only looked like that.

    260 45/12b: "- - - that ships may sail upon it (the sea*) by His (Allah's*) command - - -". Similar to 45/12a just above. Also see 11/7a above.

    261 45/26b: "It is Allah who gives you (persons*) life - - -". See 6/2b, 11/7a and 21/56d above.

    262 45/26c: "- - - then He (Allah*) gives you death - - -". Yes, it is well known that Allah and his followers give death to many. Many of them even murders prohibited by the Quran (according to the Quran you f.x. shall not kill women, children and old ones, and not people who are not guilty in anything - and no indiscriminate killing. But those verses are abrogated and forgotten by many.)

    Also see 11/7a above.

    263 46/3b: ”We (Allah*) created not the heavens and the earth and all between them - - -". See 46/3a just above.

    264 46/33a: "- - - Allah, who created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and earth - - -". Often claimed, never proved. See f.x. 11/7a, 21/56c+e, 41/15f and 45/22a+b above.

    265 50/6a: "- - - how We (Allah*) have made it (the sky*) - - -". One of the very many natural phenomena Muhammad claims for glorification and documentation of his god - like so many priests in so many religions. Totally invalid as long as it is not proved that it really was Allah who created it - he has not even proved his own existence, something at least Yahweh has done if either the Bible or the Quran tells the truth on this point.

    Also see 11/7a above.

    266 50/6b: "- - - and adorned it (the sky*) - - -". From other places in the Quran we know that Allah has adorned the sky by fastening the stars to the lowest heaven (37/6-7, 41/12). No comment - and none necessary. Also see 11/7a above.

    267 50/9a: "And We (Allah*) send down from the sky rain - - -". See f.x. 11/7a and 50/6a above.

    268 50/10: "And (Allah makes*) tall (and stately) palm-trees (etc.*) - - -". See 11/7b and 50/9b above.

    269 50/15a: "- - - first Creation - - - second Creation - - -". These claims from the Quran are quite interesting, as Muhammad never was able to prove anything about Allah, included his claimed power to create and recreate. This fact is extra interesting, as Yahweh proved he had the power, if the Bible and/or the Quran tell(s) the truth on this point.

    270 50/16a: "It was We (Allah*) who created man - - -". See f.x. 6/2b and 11/7a above.

    271 50/16d: "- - - We (Allah*) are nearer to him (man*) than (his) jugular vein". One of the many, many never proved claims in the Quran. And once more: Why then 2/233h above?

    102 50/43b: "Verily it is We (Allah*) Who give Life and Death - - -". Definitely no proved verity or truth. Definitely - never eve one valid proof. See f.x. 6/2b 7/158, 11/7a, 21/56b, and 50/6a above.

    ####272 51/47c: “- - - it is We (Allah*) Who created the vastness of space.” Here is a point which should be checked: According to one of our sources, the word which is used in Arab is “samaa” which is said to mean “sky”, whereas the Arab word for “universe” or “space” is said to be “al-kawn”. If true - and our source is reliable - the correct translation should be: "- - - the vastness of the sky", which is something very different ("the sky" in this connection is what we see up there from Earth, "the universe" is something immeasurably larger). We have till now been unable to check this for sure, but mention it because such dishonesty tells so very much about Islam and about honesty in Islam and Muslims even today if it is true, and our source is quite reliable – whereas we find half truths or cases of al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie) too often in Islamic media/books (though we had originally not expected it from a man like Yusuf Ali). Our source also is strengthened by the fact that Muhammad Asad (A51/30) admits that the literal meaning of the Arab texts is "the sky" - see 51/47d - so it seems to be true that the translation of the Quran here is falsified.

    Sources we reckon to be reliable, also ###say that the Arab word for universe in the modern meaning, (al-kawn) is not at all used in the entire Quran. Also see 51/47d.)

    273 52/36a: "Or did they (other gods*) create the heavens and the earth?" Another of Muhammad's rhetoric questions intended to have only one possible answer. But any believer in any religion might answer "yes" on just as correct a basis as any Muslim: Claims and beliefs and not one proof. Because in addition to this obvious "yes", there is a counter-question Muhammad never permitted: Did Allah really create it and where are the proofs in case? Muhammad always behaved like his claimed "truth" was true and needed no proofs - both of which are wrong - - - unless proved.

    274 53/44: "- - - it is He (Allah*) who granteth death and life - - -". Often claimed, but never proved anywhere (in contrast to Yahweh who via Jesus and others - if the Bible tells the truth - several times proved he was able to give the dead ones life (f.x. 1. Kings 17/22, 2. Kings 4/34-35, Matt.9/25, Matt. 27/52, Luke 7/15, John 11/44, 9/40, Acts 20/10, and the Quran 3/49b, 5/110i above - and of course the resurrection of Jesus himself).

    ##275 55/3: “He (Allah*) has created man”. At least not like told in the Quran - see 6/2b above. Besides man was not created according to science - he developed from an earlier primate. If Islam says he was created, they will have to prove it. And if they claim the creation was like described in the Quran, they will have to produce even stronger proof - - - after they first have found out which of the claimed may be 13 different ways described in the Quran is the correct one.

    276 55/7a: "And the Firmament has He (Allah*) raised high - - -". Wrong: The firmament has never been raised - at least not "raised high" as compared to the Earth.

    277 55/10a: “It is He (Allah*) who has spread out the earth - - -”. See 11/7a above.

    278 55/10a: “It is He (Allah*) who has spread out the earth - - -”. See 11/7a above.

    279 55/24a: “And His (Allah’s) are the Ships sailing - - -”. We never heard about a god owning ships. It cannot be literally meant. But the Quran says the book is to be read literally.

    080 55/29c: "- - - every day in (new) Splendor doth He (Allah*) (shine)!" No comment until Islam produces at least a small proof for that Allah really exists and is a major god or at least a god and really is the maker of this, none of which Muhammad and Allah were ever able to prove in spite of repeated requests. Muhammad only was able to produce excuses and "explanations" for being unable to prove even a nanometer of his claims.

    281 56/57a: "It is We (Allah*) Who have created you (humans*) - - -". See 6/2b, 11/7a,21/56c and 41/15f above.

    282 56/60a: "We (Allah*) have decreed Death to be your common lot - - -". This only is possible if Allah exists and is a major god. And this is one more of Muhammad's never proved claims.

    283 56/62b: "- - - the first form of creation: why then do ye not celebrate His (Allah's*) praises?" What here indirectly is said, is that Allah created everything, included you. See 6/2b, 11/7a, 21/56c+e and 41/15f above. The reason why we do not celebrate Allah's praises for that, is that it is unlikely in the far extreme that Allah did the creation - yes, even that he exists.

    ##284 56/64b: "Is it ye (humans*) who cause it (seeds*) to grow, or are We (Allah*) the cause?". This is a technique of debating where you (try to) lead your opposite part by the nose, by using rhetoric questions and limiting the permitted answers. Here the answer which is the most likely to be the correct one - nature - is prohibited. You meet this kind of technique pretty often from Muslims - f.x. demanding proofs from the Quran for things they know is not clear in the Quran. (F.x. "Prove from the Quran that Dhu'l Quarnayn is Alexander the Great". This is thoroughly proved by science and also in central Islamic literature - f.x. by Ibn Hisham in Ibn Ishaq: "The life of the Prophet": "Alexander was a Greek (he was from Macedonia, but was king of Greece*) and he founded Alexandria - it is a historical fact that Alexander the Great founded Alexandria. But it is not clear in the Quran - on the other hand no Muslim ever mentions that it also is not clear in the Quran that Dhu'l Quarnayn was not Alexander.) Such a limitation is nonsense if proofs exists other places, but it makes the Muslim the winner of the debate if his opponent is stupid enough to accept the limitations.

    Besides: It is up to Muslims to prove that Allah causes it to grow, as it is they who put forth the claim - not for you to disprove it.

    285 56/69: "Do ye (bad people*) bring it down (in rain) from the Cloud or do We (Allah)". As dishonest a question as in 56/59 and 56/64a+b. Also see 11/7a above.

    286 56/70a: “- - - We (Allah*) could make it (all rain*) salt - - -”. Not without changing both natural and physical laws. Salt simply does not evaporate, and then as simply cannot rain down (some spray from the sea is caught by the wind, but far, far too little to make rain salty). If Islam insists it is true, they will have to prove it - words are cheap.

    287 57/2d: "- - - it is He (Allah*) Who gives life and Death - - -". An interesting claim, as Allah and Muhammad and Islam never were able to prove this - it only is lose words - whereas if the Bible and/or the Quran tells the truth on this point, Yahweh have proved it many times (f.x. Matt.9/18-25, Luke 7/12-15, John 11/39-43 - and of course Jesus himself - and there are more, included in the Quran).

    *288 57/4a: "He (Allah*) it is who created the heavens (plural and wrong) and the earth - - -”. Often claimed, never proved.

    *289 57/6a: “He (Allah*) merges Night into Day, and Day into Night - - -”. Wrong. It is the sun and the revolving of the Earth which do this - any god knew it, but Muhammad not. Then who made the Quran? If Islam still says Allah does it - or made the natural laws behind it - they will have to bring proof - - - but proofs, and not just words or statements any priest can use for any god, as statements and words are very cheap.

    NB: This verse Muslims use to say Muhammad knew the Earth was spherical, because this only could happen if the Earth is spherical. But:/p>

    1. a. The Quran tells that night and day follow their courses = it is they who move. In that case the shape of Earth does not matter - the gradual change between night and day could happen no matter what shape the Earth had, included flat - because it would depend on the movement of night and day.
    2. b. Muhammad saw how day and night changed. He did not need to know the shape of Earth - he only described what he saw.
     

    The claim is invalid.

    290 57/17a: "Know ye (people*) (all) that Allah giveth life to the earth after its death". An interesting - and as normal for the Quran not proved - claim, as Allah has never proved his power over life and death. Lots of claims, but never a clear proof. Not over life and death, not over anything at all, yes, not even his own existence. Whereas Yahweh has sent a lot of proofs, if either the Quran or the Bible or both tell the truth on these points. Especially interesting as both the Quran's never proved claim that Yahweh and Allah is the same god, and it’s never proved claim that the Bible is falsified, both are proved wrong.

    An extra point here is that this picture refers to rain making the desert blossom. But a desert which blossoms after rain, was not dead, it only looked dead.

    291 64/1a: “Whatever is in the heavens (plural and wrong*) and on earth, doth declare the praise and glory of Allah - - -”. No. 62/1a above is cemented. Besides: It is said "whatever", not "whoever" = animism and/or anthropomorphism. (You meet this some places in the Quran. Animism and anthropomorphism you normally meet in primitive religions and in fairy tales.) This simply is not true - easy for anybody to see. F.x. the majority of humans do not even believe in Allah, and when did you last time see animals, birds, fish, slugs, and plants bow down to Allah direction Mecca 5 times a day?

    292 64/2a: “- - - it is He (Allah*) Who has created you - - -”. According to science man was not created, but evolved from an earlier primate. At least man cannot have been created in any of the 13 different ways in which the Quran tells the single person Adam was created - see 6/2 + 38/75 + 55/3 and more. Finally: Islam and the Quran only offers a claim that any religion and any person can make for any god they like, as long as they have to prove nothing. Lose claims without proofs can be the basis for belief - even for strong belief - but they are without value as basis for knowledge as long as they are not proved. This especially is so as it is an extremely serious matter if there really is a god somewhere, and this god is not Allah. If the god is not Allah, and at the same time Muslims have been denied the possibility to search for this possible god, by blind belief forced on them by unproved claims anyone can use free of charge about their imagining god(s) and by glorification of blind belief - well, then they are in for a rude waking up if there is a next life.

    293 64/3a: “He (Allah*) has created heavens (plural and wrong*) and earth in just proportions”. Often claimed, never proved. Besides: Did he just say that what nature had made, were the just proportions? Also see 11/7a above.

    ##294 65/12a: Scientific nonsense: “Allah is He Who created seven Firmaments - - -”. Firmament is another name for the heaven as we see it - mostly used about the night sky. The Quran so many places states there are 7 heavens or firmaments or tracts or just heavens in plural referring to the 7 heavens, that there is no doubt about what it means. It is totally wrong, though. (Even if Muslims try to explain it away with 7 layers in the atmosphere or diffuse arguments about the space as we know it today or statements about it being an allegory - the standard last resort for Muslims for explaining or "explaining" things that are impossible to explain - even though it very clearly is no allegory - clear at least to anyone not full of wishful thinking or religious inhibitions.

    You find these claims about 7 heavens/firmaments/tracts in 2/29d+e, 17/44a, 23/17a, 23/86a, 41/12a+b, 65/12a, 67/3a+b and 71/15a+b - all together the Quran mentions "heavens" in plural at least 199 times; there is no doubt the Quran means there are 7 heavens (and as the stars are fastened to the lowermost of them - f.x. 67/5a - they have to be material ones - if not the stars could not be fastened to it). In 67/3 you also are told they are places one above the other, which means they of course are built successively higher above the Earth - which also is clear from most places in the Quran where the place of the heavens are indicated. Some modern Muslims try to place the heavens in space, deep space included. But among others 67/3 prohibits this, as "up" and "down" ("one above the other") has no meaning as part of the real space.

    By the way: 67/12b also claims there are 7 Earths, and gives their names according to Islam.

    Actually it is not 100% correct to say that Muhammad told everything about the heavens according to the astronomy of that time. If we remember our Greek astronomy correctly, it was like this:

    1. The outer layer or ceiling: The stars.
    2. The 7. Heaven Saturn.
    3. The 6. Heaven Jupiter.
    4. The 5. heaven Mars.
    5. The 4. Heaven The Sun.
    6. The 3. Heaven Venus.
    7. The 2. Heaven Mercury.
    8. The 1. Heaven The Moon.
     

    The outer layer some "astronomers" reckoned to be the 8. heaven. We stress that you may find old "charts" with a somewhat different sequence of the heavenly bodies. But as far as we have found, Islam is the only one with the stars fixed to the 1. Heaven - seemingly the belief at that time in Arabia.

    ###072 65/12b: Scientific nonsense: “Allah is He Who created seven Firmaments (wrong*) ##########and of the earth a similar number”. According to Hadith the last part means 7 separate Earths - one above the other. According to Muhammad Ibn ‘Abd Allah al-Kisa’I the last part means 7 layers down in the Earth according to one “explanation”. But what the Quran really says, is 7 Earths – 7 flat Earths. (Also see ALLAH, THE CLAIMED CREATOR, verse 65/12b). No matter if you believe the Quran/Hadith or one of the “explanations” for this somewhat special geology/geography/astronomy, the names of the “Earths” from top and down are:

    1. Ramaka. People: Muwasshim, in everlasting torment and divine retribution. (Earth?)
    2. Khalada. People: Tamis, eating their own flesh, drinking their own blood.
    3. Arqa. People: Qays, eating dirt, drinking mother's milk. Pest: Mulelike eagles with spearlike tails and poisonous quills.
    4. Haraba. People: Jilla, have no eyes, hands, or feet, but batlike wings. Pest: the snakes of Hell, large as mountains.
    5. Maltham. People: Hajla, eat each other. Pest: carry stones of sulphur around their neck - may burn.
    6. Sijjin. People: Qatat, look like birds, worship Allah.
    7. Pest(?): contains the register of Hell.
    8. Ajiba. People: Khasum, black and short, with claws like lions. Pest: Iblis/the Devil lives here (Hell?). Gog and Magog will end here.
     

    It seems that Ramaka is our Earth. And other points in the Quran indicate that Hell is below Ajiba = below the Earths.

    According to f.x. Hadith, Al-Bukhari, the Earths are placed one above the other – easy as the Quran tells Earth is/are flat. The lower down, the more devilish life on the respective "Earth" – and if you are a big enough sinner, you can fall down through them to Hell at the Day of Doom according to Hadiths. It is not necessary to say it is all rubbish. No comments. But also see 65/12c just below.

    ###295 67/5a: “And We (Allah*) have (from of old), adorned the lowest (37/6-7, 41/12) heaven with Lamps (Stars*)- - -”. The Quran’s picture of cosmos is taken from Greek and/or Persian astronomy and "adjusted" some, and as any secondary school child not blinded by religious indoctrination can see; it is much wrong. For one thing the heavens have to be made from something material to make possible fixing the stars to one of them. Besides: From Greek etc. astronomy we know that the planets, stars, sun and moon were fixed to 7-8 different heavens. As the stars according to the Quran is fixed to the lowest, they have to be lower than the than the moon. But what happens if you try to place say Betelgeuse or even Helios - our sun - below Luna - our moon?

    Further: Our rockets cannot go too high - they will collide with the material heavens. Muhammad said the Quran is perfect and without mistakes or flaws. The Quran says the Quran is perfect and without mistakes or flaws. Islam says the Quran is perfect and without mistakes or flaws. Muslims say the Quran is perfect and without mistakes or flaws. All of them say the Quran is perfect and without mistakes or flaws because Allah sent down a book he had made or which had existed forever - a book which is the revered “Mother Book” (13/39b, 43/4b+c, 85/21-22) in the heaven of Allah - and an omniscient god can neither make mistakes nor revere texts containing lots of mistakes, contradictions, flaws and hallmarks of cheats and deceivers. Also see 67/3 above and 67/5b+c just below.

    BUT WHAT DO ALL THOSE WORDS HELP WHEN THE MISTAKES, CONTRADICTIONS, AND THE FLAWS ARE THERE ANYHOW? AND WHEN ISLAM TELLS THAT THE TOTAL LACK OF ANY MISTAKE IN THE QURAN PROVES IT IS FROM ALLAH, WHAT THEN DOES MEGA BLUNDERS LIKE THIS PROVE?

    Actually it is not 100% correct to say that Muhammad told everything about the heavens according to the astronomy of that time. If we remember our Greek astronomy correctly, it was like this:

    1. The outer layer or ceiling: The stars.
    2. The 7. Heaven Saturn.
    3. The 6. Heaven Jupiter.
    4. The 5. heaven Mars.
    5. The 4. Heaven The Sun.
    6. The 3. Heaven Venus.
    7. The 2. Heaven Mercury.
    8. The 1. Heaven The Moon.
     

    The outer layer some "astronomers" reckoned to be the 8. heaven. We stress that you may find old "charts" with a somewhat different sequence of the heavenly bodies. But as far as we have found, Islam is the only one with the stars fixed to the 1. Heaven and below the moon.

    ##296 67/5b: “- - - and We (Allah*) have made such (lamps (stars*) as) missiles to drive away the Evil Ones - - -”. Well, well. Any secondary school child able to see that the entry from the same verse 67/5a were wrong, would laugh from this: Stars fastened to the lowest heaven and then doubling as shooting stars to drive this away! Today it is clear such "information" only belongs in fairy tales. Also see 67/3 and 67/5a. Who made the Quran?

    No further comments - except that you find similar in 15/17-18 - 37/10 – 72/8.

    297 67/5d: Scientific nonsense: (A67/5 – omitted in 2008 edition): “We (Allah*) have, (from of old), adorned the lowest heaven (out of the 7 the Quran frequently tells about, and which Muhammad even visited according to Islam*) with lamps (stars*), and We have made such (lamps) (as) missiles to drive away the Evil Ones - - -.” But the disagreement concerns: Is it the stones in the shooting stars that chase jinns, etc. away? – the Arab word “rudjum” – plural of “radjm” means “throwing of stones” or “stoning” (one name for the Devil f.x. is “ar-radjim” = “the stoned one”). Or is it the fire? – the Quran really mention the fire. Once more: Start guessing. (The 2008 edition of “The Message of the Quran” even has got a new one – at least new to us: The Quran is not talking about stars used like shooting stars, but used as objects for divination by the bad astrologers. They need a lot of easy words to reach that conclusion, but so what? – as we have indicated before: Sometimes the religion is more essential than honesty and intellectual integrity. Though we have touched this theme before, we ask again: What does it indicate that a religion has to resort to cheating and dishonesty? Normally such methods mean that one does not have real arguments. In religion there also is the serious fact: If there is a next life, and if a religion needs to base its life on lies – even only partly – that is a strong indication for that that religion is not based on the truth. And in that case its believers will not wake up in any Paradise.)

    The Islamic universe. 7 Heavens, 7 Earths, and Hell.

    According to the Quran the “everything” is like this:

    On top of all - above the 7. heaven - Allah has his residence.

    Seven heavens above the Earth – one on top of the other. They have names, guardian angel, and gates.

    The heavens are resting on the Earth by means of invisible pillars.

    In between the heavens are the sun (?) and the moon.

    The sun is a flat disk (if not it cannot be folded up like it does at the Day of Doom).

    The 7 heavens contain Paradise - the higher heavens are for top Muslims.

    The lower heaven is for "normal good" Muslims - split in at least 4 gardens = 4 qualities.

    Under heavens, and fastened to the lowest one (37/6-7, 41/12), are all the stars.

    Allah often uses stars as shooting stars to chase away jinns and bad spirits spying on Heaven.

    Under the heavens and stars are clouds – which Allah sometimes breaks to pieces (raindrops).

    Under that the birds are kept up there by the will of Allah only.

    On the Earth mountains are set down - or really dropped down.

    The reason why Allah has set down mountains on Earth is to stabilize it - if not it can start wobbling and tip over (This is the Quran's real meaning on this point).

    (Modern Muslims claims the mountains are set down to reduce earthquakes - but mountains do not reduce earthquakes (on the contrary sometimes)).

    According to Hadiths 2 of the rivers on Earth starts in Heaven - the Nile and Euphrates.

    Earth was – according to the Quran - created together with the heavens from something like smoke which Allah ordered to come together to one mass and then he split asunder. One part became our flat Earth (or really "earths" as there are 7 (65/12) – one on top of the other according to Hadiths) and the other became heaven, or actually the 7 material heavens which lies above Earth. (For more about this, see the about the creation of heaven).

    On the Earth also all kinds of beings live – created from clay or something or nothing.

    Man - Adam - is created in 13 different ways if you count exactly and strictly (5 - 7 if you are kind-hearted towards Islam).

    All this is existing or living on our flat Earth.

    There are 7 earths - according to Hadiths the others are under "our" Earth.

    According to Hadiths Islam knows the names of the 7 earths - and the name of their people.

    Underneath everything is Hell

     

    (we have not found out for sure if it is situated in the world Ajiba, but likely under it).

    The lower the earth the more Hell-like is the situation for its inhabitants, Hadiths tell.

    And at the bottom Hell (?)

     

    All this (possibly with the exception of Paradise and Hell) was created in 6 - or 8 - days.

    That it took 6 days, is mentioned at least in 10/3 – 11/7 – 25/59 – 32/4 – 50/38 - 57/4. But science tells a very different story.

    Just like your teacher of geography told you? And who created this nonsense?

    ##(YA5570):"He (Allah*) Who creates must necessarily know His own handiwork". This is very correct, so when the Quran shows that the maker of that book clearly do not know the reality, it is a strong proof for that something is very wrong somewhere.

    The 7 heavens, its guardian angels, and its gates:

    1. 7. Heaven: Gharibya, angel Razquel, gate made from shining light.
    2. 6. Heaven: Rafqa, angel Shamkhael, gate made from white pearl.
    3. 5. Heaven: Ratqa, angel Kalkael, gate made from gold.
    4. 4. Heaven: Arqlun, angel Salsael, gate made from silver.
    5. 3. Heaven: Aun, angel Saadiel, gate made from topaz.
    6. 2. Heaven: Faydum, angel Michael, gate made from ruby.
    7. 1. Heaven: Birqi, angel Ismael, gate made from emerald.
     

    The 7 heavens were Greek and Persian astronomy. One observed 7 movements on the firmament - the stars, the sun and the moon, plus Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn (the other planets were not visible to the naked eye) - and thus needed 7 invisible heavens to fasten them to, to explain why they did not fall down on Earth. Any - any - god had known better. Then who made the Quran?

    Actually it is not 100% correct to say that Muhammad told everything about the heavens according to the astronomy of that time. If we remember our Greek astronomy correctly, it was like this:

    1. The outer layer or ceiling: The stars.
    2. The 7. Heaven Saturn.
    3. The 6. Heaven Jupiter.
    4. The 5. heaven Mars.
    5. The 4. Heaven The Sun.
    6. The 3. Heaven Venus.
    7. The 2. Heaven Mercury.
    8. The 1. Heaven The Moon.
     

    The outer layer some "astronomers" reckoned to be the 8. heaven. We stress that you may find old "charts" with a somewhat different sequence of the heavenly bodies. But as far as we have found, Islam is the only one with the stars fixed to the 1. Heaven.

    The 7 Earths and Hell - and their people:

    The scientific name of the people on our Earth is Homo Sapiens. That means "the thinking human" or "knowing human". There are times when there are reasons for believing that name is an ironical joke - f.x. when leaders demand blindness, blind belief, and acceptance/belief in obviously wrong facts and/or obviously invalid logic.

    If there somewhere is a god who is behind the creation or development of man, his second most valuable gift - after life itself - is our brain. If it is a gift from a god, it is an insult to this god to use blind belief instead of the brain.

    1. Ramaka. People: Muwasshim, in everlasting torment and divine retribution.
    2. Khalada. People: Tamis, eating their own flesh, drinking their own blood.
    3. Arqa. People: Qays, eating dirt, drinking mother's milk. Pest: Mulelike eagles with spearlike tails and poisonous quills.
    4. Haraba. People: Jilla, have no eyes, hands, or feet, but batlike wings. Pest: the snakes of Hell, large as mountains.
    5. Maltham. People: Hajla, eat each other. Pest: carry stones of sulfur around their neck - may burn.
    6. Sijjin. People: Qatat, look like birds, worship Allah. Pest(?): contains the register of Hell.
    7. Ajiba. People: Khasum, black and short, with claws like lions. Pest: Iblis/the Devil lives here (Hell?). Gog and Magog will end here.
     

    According to f.x. Al-Bukhari the Earths are placed one above the other – easy as the Quran tells the Earth(s) is/are flat. The lower down, the more devilish life on the respective layer – and if you are a big enough sinner, you can fall down through them all at the Day of Doom. It is not necessary to say it is all rubbish.

    p> Also see 2/131 – 7/61 - 7/67 – 7/104 – 7/121 – 10/3 – 26/16 – 26/23 – 26/47 – 26/77 – 26/98 – 26/109 – 26/127 – 26/145 – 27/8 – 27/44 – 32/2 – 37/87 – 38/87 – 39/74 – 41/9 – 43/46 – 45/36 - 56/80 – 59/16 – 68/52 – 69/43 – 81/27 – 81/29 – 83/6 and many more. All these places mention “the worlds” in plural – f.x. “Lord of the Worlds (Allah*)” – and reference to the 7 worlds. But beware of a stumbling stone here: The Quran also in 1 – 2 cases uses the expression “the Worlds” in another connection – Muslim scholars believe it in that or those couple of cases refers to “man and Jinn” or “man and woman”. In western languages it is not possible to see the difference, because our nouns only have singular and plural. But in Arab (and some other languages) it is different: They have singular, dual (= 2), and plural. We are informed that in all such cases where the original Arab text has plural, it refers to the 7 non-existing Earths (well, one exists, even though it is not flat). But if the Arab text any place has the noun "Worlds" in dual, it just that place is referring to something else - like "man and jinn".

     

    The 7 gates of Hell:

    Like the heavens also Hell has 7 gates. They open to 7 parts of Hell, one worse than the next.

    1. Gehanna.
    2. Laza.
    3. Hutama.
    4. Sair.
    5. Saquar.
    6. Jahim. (This one is for Jews, Christians, and Sabeans - "the People of the Book".)
    7. Hawiya.

     

Once more: Just like your teacher of geography told you? And who created this nonsense?

Once more: ##(YA5570):"He (Allah*) Who creates must necessarily know His own handiwork". This is very correct, so when the Quran shows that the maker of that book clearly do not know the reality, it is a strong proof for that something is very wrong somewhere.

##298 67/14b: (YA5570):"He (Allah*) Who creates must necessarily know His own handiwork". This is very correct, so that when the Quran shows he clearly does not know the reality, it is a strong proof for that something is very wrong somewhere concerning the Quran - and thus also concerning Muhammad and Islam.

################THIS SENTENCE COMBINED WITH ALL THE ERRORS AND WORSE IN THE QURAN, SHOULD PROVE THAT THE QURAN IS NOT FROM THE MAKER OF THE WORLD, OF THE UNIVERSE, AND OF LIFE.

299 67/18c: "- - - then how terrible was my rejection (of them) (non-Muslims*) - - -". There were scattered ruins in and around Arabia, and there were tales about former people and tribes. Muhammad claimed that their deaths were all samples of his punishment for sins. A claim science - and common sense - doubt to say the least of it, as there are other and more likely reasons for ruins in a harsh and warlike land.

##300 67/19a: “None can hold them (the birds*) up except (Allah) - - -”. Wrong. What keeps the birds up, are the laws of aerodynamics. (Of course Muslims can use one of their favorite last resorts: Declare that Allah made those laws. But then they will have to prove that - not just use cheap words that any priest in any religion can use about any claimed god.) Also see 11/7a. Similar in 16/79a+b above.

301 67/24b: "It is He (Allah*) Who has multiplied you through the earth - - -". Many will protest and tell that multiplying they have managed themselves - and with pleasure. Also see 11/7a above.

302 71/14a: "Seeing that it is He (Allah*) who has created you - - -". I do not see that - not without very strong proofs. This is typical technique from Muhammad: Pretending that a starting point (here that Allah has created) is true and proved, and then making deductions from that. But as long as the starting point is not proved, it has nothing to do with logical deduction - but such technique often is used by cheaters, swindlers, charlatans, deceivers, etc. to deceive people. And you frequently meet this technique also from Islam and from Muslims.

303 71/14b: "- - - He (Allah*) who has created you in diverse stages". This is old Greek and perhaps Persian zoology and physiology - f.x. the great Greek thinker Galen thought that a fetus was made in stages, and this - as you see from this verse in the Quran - was what was correct science in Arabia, too, at the time of Muhammad. Any god had known that the making of a fetus is a continual process.

304 71/15-16a: “- - - Allah has created the seven (material - see the Mega Mistakes*) heavens, one above the other - - -.” It is not possible to be more wrong. Who above 3. grade primary school needs a comment here? 7 (material) heavens and the moon in between them somewhere (and remember the stars are fixed to the lowest heaven (37/6-7, 41/12), so they are below the moon! We do not bother to comment this. But also see 37/6c and 67/5d above.

305 71/15-16b: “- - - Allah has created the seven (material- see the Mega Mistakes*) heavens, one above the other, and made the moon a light in their midst - - -.” The moon is in between them somewhere (and remember the stars are fixed to the lowest heaven, so they are below the moon!)!! We do not bother to comment this - except that the moon is not behind and beyond the stars. If the Moon (Luna) had been beyond even the nearest star, we hardly had been able to see it even in a space telescope. Not to mention what had happened if a star had been between us and Luna where it is now!

Actually it is not 100% correct to say that Muhammad told everything about the heavens according to the astronomy of that time. If we remember our Greek astronomy correctly, it was like this:

  1. The outer layer or ceiling: The stars.
  2. The 7. Heaven Saturn.
  3. The 6. Heaven Jupiter.
  4. The 5. heaven Mars.
  5. The 4. Heaven The Sun.
  6. The 3. Heaven Venus.
  7. The 2. Heaven Mercury.
  8. The 1. Heaven The Moon.

The outer layer some "astronomers" reckoned to be the 8. heaven. We stress that you may find old "charts" with a somewhat different sequence of the heavenly bodies. But as far as we have found, Islam is the only one with the stars fixed to the 1. Heaven.

306 71/17a: "- - - Allah has produced you - - -". See 11/7a above. Also not possible unless Allah exists and is a god.

307 71/17b: "- - - Allah has produced you from the earth - - -". Wrong. See 6/2b above. (Though perhaps it here is meant that you have grown because you have eaten food grown on the earth, though this is not indicated in the Quran - and none of the other ways Adam is claimed created can be explained in this way.)

##308 72/16d: "- - - We (Allah*) should certainly bestowed on them Rain in abundance." See 11/7a above.

309 73/20b: “Allah doth appoint night and day in due measures.” This is dictated by someone who knew nothing about the far south and the far north - facts and reality and nature is different from what would be due measures for most beings - included man - there at times. But Muhammad did not know that. Any god had known. Also see 11/7a above.

310 78/6b: “Have We (Allah*) not made the earth as a wide expanse.” The Quran has been saying the same before - Allah made the (flat) Earth. But here it is used as a proof - - - without ever having been proved - without ever having been more than statements built on lose words. A claim just taken from nature and used many times in the Quran. The Quran tried to give Allah the credit, but only words - words any priest or “prophet” for any god could/can use just as cheaply and just as empty for value, as a proof for their god or gods. To mention it ones more: Cheats, swindlers and deceivers often use tactics like this. Also see 11/7a above.

A never proved claim pretended to be a proved fact - Muslims and Islam often use this technique.

311 78/7: “(Allah made*) the mountains as pegs - - -“. Some Muslims say: Hip, hurray – here is a proof for Muhammad and the Quran: The science talks about the “roots” of the mountains – the mountains are like pegs! How could Muhammad know?!" But mountain “roots” are not like pegs, but like bulges or distorted sheets (as mountains and mountain chains often are long and narrow – look at the Rocky Mountains – Andes chain f.x.) - or as distorted hemispheres. There exist deep pegs – or really sheets – pointing far down into the mantel (melted stone), but not in connection to mountains or mountain ranges really, though they may co-exist: They exist some places where large pieces of the Earth’s crust – tectonic plates – are forced downwards because of movements of the crust (tectonic movement). But that has nothing to do with mountains (even though mountains may be secondary results of the movement) – it is something entirely different. Contradicted by geological facts.

A never proved claim pretended to be a proved fact - Muslims and Islam often use this technique. Especially when the claims are wrong, the effect is peculiar and revealing.

312 78/9: “(And has not Allah*) made your sleep for rest - - -”. Unproved statement used as (invalid) proof. Did Allah really invent sleep? See 11/7a and 78/6b above.

A never proved claim pretended to be a proved fact - Muslims and Islam often use this technique.

313 78/10: “(And has not Allah*) made the night as a covering - - -”. Did Allah invent the night? - unproved statement used as proof. See 11/7a and 78/6b above. And is lack of light - nothing - a covering? Also see 11/7a above.

A never proved claim pretended to be a proved fact - Muslims and Islam often use this technique.

314 78/11: “(And has not Allah*) made the day as a means of subsistence?” Did Allah really invent the day - or is it a by-product of the sun’s shining and the Earth‘s revolving? And was it really meant for subsistence, or was that, too, a by-product of the shining of the sun? Two statements used as proofs - both just unproved statements and both suspect. And both invalid as proof as long as it is not proved that Allah made it. Also see 11/7a and 78/6 above.

A never proved claim pretended to be a proved fact - Muslims and Islam often use this technique.

##315 78/12a: “And (have We (Allah*) not) built over you - - - firmaments - - -?” For something to be built, materials have to be used – the heavens also from other pieces of information must be made from something material. Wrong: The sky as we see it, just is an optical illusion – or actually 2 (bending of sunlight makes the blue "sky" at day, out inability to see in 3 dimensions at those distances, makes the night sky look like being in 2 dimensions at night). That the Quran believes the firmaments are material, also is proved by the fact that it tells the stars are fastened to the lowest heaven (37/6-7, 41/12) - they could not be fastened unless there was something material to fasten it to.

A never proved claim pretended to be a proved fact - Muslims and Islam often use this technique. In this case it is even worse, as the claimed "proof" is proved wrong.

##316 78/12b: “And (have We (Allah*) not) built over you the seven firmaments - - -?” Wrong: See 37/6c, 67/3 a, 67/3b, 67/5a and 67/5b above. Simply and doubly wrong.

A never proved claim pretended to be a proved fact - Muslims and Islam often use this technique. In this case it is even worse, as the claimed "proof" is proved wrong.

317 78/12-13: “And have We (Allah*) not built over you the seven firmaments, and placed (therein) a light of Splendor (= the sun*)?” The sun is not placed among (“therein”) the 7 firmaments.

A never proved claim pretended to be a proved fact - Muslims and Islam often use this technique. In this case it is even worse, as the claimed "proof" is proved wrong.

318 78/13: “And (has not Allah*) placed (therein) a Light (the sun*) of Splendor - - -”. One more lose and suspect statement (did Allah create the sun?) without proofs, used as a proof. Entirely without value - and a kind of proof no god would use. Also see 37/6c, 11/7a and 78/6 above.

A never proved claim pretended to be a proved fact - Muslims and Islam often use this technique.

319 78/14: “And do We (Allah*) not send down from the clouds water in abundance - - -”. Invalid as a proof, as it is not proved that Allah has anything to do with the rain at all. See also 11/7a and 78/6 above.

A never proved claim pretended to be a proved fact - Muslims and Islam often use this technique.

320 78/15: “(And*) That We (Allah*) may produce therewith (rain) corn and vegetables - - -”. Also this proof is invalid because it is based on lose presumptions, not proved facts - it is nowhere proved that Allah has anything to do with the growing of anything. Also see 11/7a and 78/6 above.

A never proved claim pretended to be a proved fact - Muslims and Islam often use this technique.

321 78/16: “And (do not Allah produce) gardens of luxurious growth?” See 11/7a, 78/6 and 78/15 above.

A never proved claim pretended to be a proved fact - Muslims and Islam often use this technique.

322 79/29: "Its (the firmament's?*) night doth He (Allah*) endow with darkness, and its splendor He bringeth out (with light (the stars and the moon*))". See 11/7a above.

323 80/19a: “From a sperm-drop He (Allah*) hath created him (man*) - - -”. Wrong. Neither man (see 6/2a) nor a man (see 75/37) was created just from sperm.

324 80/21: "Then He (Allah*) causeth him (man*) to die." Comment similar to 80/20a+b above.

325 80/21-32: Different natural phenomena Muhammad like so often claims for glorification and indication of his god - as always without the slightest proof. He just claims like any pagan priest claims for his pagan god(s).

326 80/24-32: Allah claims he is producing the food needed by humans and animals. See 11/7a, 21/56c, and 41/15f above.

327 82/7a: "Him (Allah*) Whom created thee (humans*) - - -". This at least is what Muhammad claims - like always without any kind of documentation. Like all priests in all religions can claim just as easily as long as they evade all requests for proofs. Also see 6/2b and 11/7a above. Wrong unless Islam proves the book true at this point at least

*328 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 Hadiths 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. Scientific nonsense.) Who made the Quran? Also see 18/37 – 32/8 – 35/11 – 40/67 – 75/37 – 77/20.

##329 96/2a: “(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 - is 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 fetus. 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? And also:

This is contradicted by 6/2, 7/12, 17/61, 32/7, 38/71, and 38/76 which tell man/Adam was made from clay, 15/26, 15/26, and 15/33 that tell man/Adam was made from sounding clay, 55/14 that tells man/Adam was made from ringing clay, 37/11 that tells man/Adam was made from sticky clay, 23/12, that tells man/Adam was made from essence of clay, 15/26, 15/28, and 15/33 that tell man/Adam was made from mud, 3/59, 22/5, 35/11, 40/67, that tell man/Adam was made from dust, 20/55 that tells man/Adam was made from earth, 16/4, 75/37, 76/2, 80/19, that tell man/Adam was made from semen (without explaining from where the semen came), 21/30, 24/45, and 25/54 that tell man/Adam was made from water (NB! NB! Not in water, but from water!), 70/39 that tells man/Adam was made from “base material”, and not to mention the greatest contradiction in this case: 19/9 and 19/67 which both tell that man/Adam was created from nothing.

(Also see verse 6/2 in the chapter about the 1000+ mistakes in the Quran.) (Strictly reckoned this contradicts 30 other verses. And in this case also minimum 30 contradictions.)

*330 96/2b: “(Allah*) Created man out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood - - -”. The Quran believes that semen is a kind of seed that can start growing when “planted” in a woman. It becomes a clot of blood, then a small something, then a fetus and then little by little a baby. For a man without a microscope like Muhammad, it may be the best of explanations. But nature knew better - and an omniscient god had known better. Is this a proof for that babies are made by nature and not by someone "omniscient" who obviously does not know what he is talking about?

Besides who does this point to as the composer of the Quran?

331 105/2a: "Did He (Allah*) not make their (the Abyssinians*) treacherous plan go astray". Was it in reality Allah or nature that sent the illness?

-----------------------------------------------------------------

It also is pretty thought provoking that f.x. all the errors, contradictions, wrong facts, etc., only and alone, in the Quran, prove 100% that there is no god behind that book. And that f.x. the fact that Jesus accepted OT as correct, proves to both Christians and Muslims, and to most Jews and historians, that the OT was not falsified at that time - and that the Qumran scrolls prove that even OT was not falsified any time later, too.

It further is an insult to that possible god to "explain" that his texts means something different from what they really says = you are more clever than him at explaining what the god "really" meant, than the god is himself, even when he tries to explain things "clearly and easy to understand", and says his words are to be understood literally and without hidden meanings. Also only "the sick of heart" look for hidden meanings behind his words, according to the Quran - the very claimed hidden meanings the wise Muslims claim are what Allah really meant, but was unable to express clearly himself, so that they have to help the bumbling god and tell what he "really" tried to say. This in spite of that the Quran clearly states that meanings hidden behind Allah's clear and easy to understand words, only are possible for Allah to understand, and like said above are "only for the sick of heart" to look for.

May be as bad: To claim that the Quran means something different from what the texts clearly say, is to falsify and corrupt the Quranic texts.
