The Qur’an and Science: Are They Really “Twin Sisters”

Over the years Muslims have made many claims that the Qur’an is “without error” and “scientifically accurate” – that the Qur’an and science are “twin sisters”. Is this really the case or is this just a case of public relations on the part of Muslims in a desperate attempt to get converts?

The fact of the matter is that the Qur’an and science are not only NOT “twin sisters”, but they aren’t even remotely related.  On the one hand you have the science, which is:

  • Not dogmatic
  • Open to questioning
  • Open to change in the form of progress

And on the other hand you have Islam, which:

  • Is dogmatic
  • Not open to questioning and is met with open hostility if is questioned.
  • Not open to change at all, in fact Muslims think this is one of their “proofs” of Islam being right.
  • Relies on threats and intimidation tactics instead of facts.

Not only is the Qur’an is not only NOT scientifically accurate; it is patently absurd in the claims it makes of the natural world.

The Qur’an states that mountains hold the ground from moving – which is not true.  Mountains form as a result OF the ground moving.  Not only that, if the ground didn’t move, that would mean you are on a dead planet.  The reason why the ground moves is because we have a hot core, which plays a role in the movement of tectonic plates.  THE GROUND MOVES.  That is why when you look at a globe it looks like the land is a puzzle.

The Qur’an also states that semen comes from “an area between the backbones and the ribs”- also absurd.

The fact of the matter is that the Qur’an contains NO scientific miracles.  It is a religious book that repeats itself over and over and tells people to follow or burn.  If you were to get your science from the Qur’an, you’d be seriously misguided to do so.
