Qur`an, Hadiths and Modern Science
List of Quotations from the Qur`anBucaille`s other work,
"Mummies of the Pharaohs - Modern Medical Investigations"
(St. Martins Press, 1990), won a History Prize from the AcademieFrancaise and another prize from the French National Academy of Medicine.During the last three decades of the twentieth century, a number of social,political and economic factors contributed to the spread and popularity of suchliterature. Various state-sponsored institutions have organized conferences andseminars in which scientists link specific verses of the Qur`an to specific data andtheories of modern science to prove (i) that the Qur`an is really a book of God,revealed to the Prophet of Islam because such specific scientific information wasunknown during his life and (ii) that the Qur`an contains all scientific knowledgeand it is for science and scientists to discover this knowledge. This approach isencumbered with an emotional, psychological, even political, baggage and hasbeen opposed and challenged by serious scholarship. But its mass popularityremains uncontestable. This has given rise to a great deal of apologetic literature,including hundreds of websites which attempt to prove that the Qur`an is, infact, the word of God because it contains scientific theories and facts whichmodern science has only recently discovered.Note:Some claim that Maurice Bucaille didn't convert to Islam,,,It doesn'tmatter...But who reads the book,knows the truth...
