In Bible versus Quran, you do not know the path of the wind

The Bible, in Ecclesiastes 11:1-7.

Offers three recommendations as a guide to man’s activity.
Presents Meteorological four facts.
Gives three scientific facts.

 

 

The Bible offers three recommendations as a guide to man’s activity; they are:

Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days.
Give a portion to seven, or even to eight, for you do not know what disaster may happen on earth.
In the morning sow your seed, and at evening withhold not your hand, for you do not know which will prosper, this or that, or whether both alike will be good.

 

The Bible presents four Meteorological facts; they are:

He who observes the wind will not sow, and
He who regards the clouds will not reap.
If the clouds are full of rain, they empty themselves on the earth,
And if a tree falls to the south or to the north, in the place where the tree falls, there it will lie.

 

The Bible gives three other scientific facts; they are:

You do not know the path of the wind,
You do not know how the embryo’s body and bones are formed in a mother’s womb
It is good for the eyes to look at the sun.

 

On the other hand, it should be emphasized that NONE of these three recommendations, NONE of these four Meteorological facts and NONE of these three other scientific facts are mentioned therein in the entire Quran.

The comments about the three scientific facts

 

1) The Bible denies Meteorology

The Bible says that man does not know the path of the wind.

However, Meteorology is the interdisciplinary scientific study of the atmosphere that focuses on weather processes and forecasting including the path and speed of the wind.

 

2) The Bible denies Embryology

The Bible says that man does not know how the embryo’s body and bones are formed in a mother’s womb.

Embryology is a science which is about the development of an embryo and the formation of an embryo’s organs in a mother’s womb.

 

3) Does the Bible aimed to blind us?

The Bible says that it is good for the eyes to look at the sun.

The scientists say that if you look at the sun, you will go blind; Looking at the Sun causes blindness.

Never ever look at the Sun, even during an eclipse or at sunrise or sunset; even a couple of seconds is dangerous and could cause long-term damage to your eyes

Herein is the golden rule:

Never, ever look directly at the Sun — even during an eclipse or at sunrise or sunset. The Sun emits dangerous UV radiation that can permanently damage your eyes and even cause total blindness. This can happen in a matter of seconds.

 

Foe this reason, no smart one can believe that the Almighty Creator would say the above three facts that contradict with the science.  God is the father of the sciences, then how come He would have said that.

On the other hand, the Quran talks about the role of the wind in our life, the importance of the eye and never ever recommends us to look at the sun.

Also, the Quran talks comprehensively about the Embryology and the development of the embryo’s bones. The Embryology in the Quran needs more than seven articles to talk about.  However, I will let Professor Keith L. Moore to give a quick look about the Embryology in the Quran.

 

Who is Keith L. Moore?

Professor Emeritus, Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, University of Toronto, Distinguished embryologist and the author of several medical textbooks,

Dr. Moore was a former President of the Canadian Association of Anatomists, and of the American Association of Clinical Anatomists.  Dr. Moore was honored by the Canadian Association of Anatomists with the prestigious J.C.B. Grant Award and in 1994 he received the Honored Member Award of the American Association of Clinical Anatomists “for outstanding contributions to the field of clinical anatomy.”

 

What Professor Keith L. Moore says about the Embryology in the Quran?

 

 “At first I was astonished by the accuracy of the statements that were recorded in the 7th century AD, before the science of embryology was established. It is clear to me that these statements must have come to Muhammad from God, or Allah, because most of this knowledge was not discovered until many centuries later. This proves to me that Muhammad must have been a messenger of God, or Allah.”

The Bible, Ecclesiastes 11:1-7

American Standard Version

 

1 Cast thy bread upon the waters; for thou shalt find it after many days.

2 Give a portion to seven, yea, even unto eight; for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth.

3 If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth; and if a tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there shall it be.

4 He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap.

5 As thou knowest not what is the way of the wind, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child; even so thou knowest not the work of God who doeth all.

6 In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thy hand; for thou knowest not which shall prosper, whether this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.

7 Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold the sun.

Back to my question to the smart and interested reader:

Are the Scholars truthful when they claim that the Quran quoted from the Bible?
