An atheist wrote this article who converted to Islam
Many critical thinkers believe that all religions are completely fabricated man-made lies that were invented in order to give power to evil men. I was one of these people as well, until I found proof after proof that the Quran couldn’t have been written by humans, especially not 1400 years ago. Being an atheist when I found these proofs, my initial conclusion was that the Quran had to have been written by Aliens.
There are basically evidences that prove the Quran wasn’t written by humans:
The scientific “miracles”; things which would have been impossible for a human to know at the time. I’ll talk about the scientific evidence first. The Quran talks about some of these proofs in allegorical terms, because the language was not developed enough to say them in truly scientific terms. For instance, the universe is claimed to be continually expanding:
(Holy Quran 51:47) We constructed the universe with might, and We are expanding it.
The earth’s rotation is explained by:
[Holy Quran 27:88] When you look at the mountains, you think that they are standing still. But they are moving, like the clouds. Such is the manufacture of GOD, who perfected everything. He is fully Cognizant of everything you do.
And again the earth’s rotation is explained by:
[Holy Quran 7:54] Your Lord is the one GOD, who created the heavens and the earth in six days, then assumed all authority. The night overtakes the day, as it pursues it persistently, and the sun, the moon, and the stars are committed to serve by His command. Absolutely, He controls all creation and all commands. Most Exalted is GOD, Lord of the universe.
The night is always persuing the day when you look at the earth from space. Also the Quran specifies that the early stage of development for the Universe was gaseous:
(Holy Quran 41:11) Then He settled to the heaven, while it was still gaseous, and He said to it, and to the earth: “Come willingly or unwillingly.” They said, “We come willingly.Furthermore, the Big Bang is talked about in the Quran, where everything came from a SINGULARITY:
(Holy Quran 21:30) Did those who reject not see that the heavens and the earth were one mass and We tore them apart? That We made from the water everything that lives. Will they not acknowledge?
Also this verse brings up the fact that every living thing was created from water. This supports the theory of evolution. Many other times it is said in the Quran that human beings were created from clay. This is an allegory for saying that human beings are made from earthly materials, not from “fire” or energy, like the “jinn beings”.
[Holy Quran 15:27] As for the jinns, we created them, before that, from blazing fire
Evolution is explained as a TOOL OF CREATION in the following verses:
*(Holy Quran 71:14) “While He created you in stages?”
(Holy Quran 71:15) “Did you not see how God created seven heavens in harmony?”
(Holy Quran 71:16) “He made the moon to illuminate in them, and He made the sun to be a lit flame?”
(Holy Quran 71:17) “God made you grow from the earth as plants.”
And also evolution is explained:
(Holy Quran 29:19) Did they not observe how God initiates the creation then He returns it? All that for God is easy to do.
(Holy Quran 29:20) Say, “Roam the earth and observe how the creation was initiated. Then God will establish the final design. God is capable of all things.”
(Holy Quran 24:45) God created every moving creature from water. So some of them move on their bellies, and some walk on two legs, and some walk on four. God creates whatever He wills. God is capable of all things.
Also, the embryonic development of a child is explained before science had ever analyzed these things.
(Holy Quran 23:14) Then We created the seed into an embryo, then We created the embryo into a fetus, then We created the fetus into bone, then We covered the bone with flesh, then We brought forth a new creation. So glory be to God, the best of creators.
The word that is translated as “fetus” is the Arabic word “alaq”, which literally means “hanging thing”. They didn’t have a word at the time for “fetus”.
Also, the mountains are talked about as “pegs” or “roots”which help stabilize the crustal plates from shifting so much. This theory is very new to geologists even today, but is talked about in this article here:
When oceanic and continental plates come together, geologists believe the continental crust buckles. On the surface, the buckling manifests itself as a rising mountain range, but beneath the crust, the buckling creates a heavy, high-density “root” that holds the crust down like an anchor, says Garzione. Conventional tectonic theory says that convection of the fluid mantle deep in the Earth slowly erodes this heavy root like a stream wearing down a rock, allowing mountains to gradually rise as the crust shortens and thickens.
(Holy Quran 78:6) Did We not make the earth a resting ground?
(Holy Quran 78:7) The mountains as pegs?
They are talked about again:
(Holy Quran 16:15) He has cast into the earth stabilizers so that it does not sway with you, and rivers, and paths, perhaps you will be guided.
Also, evaporation is allegorically explained by:
(Holy Quran 25:53) He is the One who merges the two bodies of water. This is fresh and palatable and this is salty and bitter. He made between them a partition and an inviolable barrier. The seas on earth are salty. The sea of water vapor in the sky is fresh and palatable. The evaporation is the the inviolable barrier between them.
[Holy Quran 55:33] O you jinns and humans, if you can penetrate the outer limits of the heavens and the earth, go ahead and penetrate. You cannot penetrate without authorization.
[Holy Quran 55:34] Which of your Lord’s marvels can you deny?
[Holy Quran 67:5] We adorned the lowest universe with lamps, and guarded its borders with projectiles against the devils; we prepared for them a retribution in Hell.
After looking at all these proofs it was pretty easy for me to conclude that the Quran was NOT written by humans.
Because I was atheist, my initial reaction was that the Quran was written by Aliens. After reading it, I believe it is word of God.
