Another “miracle” that has dumbfounded our Muslim friends is the verse 24:40:

Or [the unbelievers' state] are like the darkness of a fathomless sea which is covered by
waves above which are waves above which are clouds, layers of darkness, one upon the
other. If he puts out his hand, he can scarcely see it. Those Allah gives no light to, they
have no light. (Qur'an, 24:40)

Muslims claims that in deep seas and oceans, the darkness increases and since human
beings are not able to dive to a depth of more than 70 meters without the aid of special
equipment, the above verse indicates that Muhammad had divine knowledge.

This is an obvious self deluding fallacy. Anyone who has dived only a few meters in the
sea can see that the light decreases with depth, especially if there layers of clouds
blocking the sunlight. Since antiquity Arabs used to dive into the Red Sea to harvest
coral. Claiming that only Muhammad knew that in deep seas there is little light is
preposterous when this can be observed by anyone diving into the sea.

Such claims only prove the desperation of the Muslims to fabricate miracles for a book
that contains nothing but absurdities and nonsense.

But that is not all. Muslims also see another miracle in this verse. They say the part that
says "...like the darkness of a fathomless sea which is covered by waves above which are
waves above which are clouds…" is another another miracle of the Qur'an because:

"Scientists have only recently discovered that there are sub-surface waves, which "occur
on density interfaces between layers of different densities." These internal waves cover
the deep waters of seas and oceans because deep water has a higher density than the
water above it. Internal waves act like surface waves. They can break, just like surface
waves. Internal waves cannot be discerned by the human eye, but they can be detected by
studying temperature or salinity changes at a given location."

We can clearly see that Muhammad in this verse is not talking about any internal and
underwater waves. His language is confused. That is why Muslims try to interpret his
words in any way that please. How difficult was for him to be specific and say that in the
sea there are internal ways? But he is talking about waves over wave as experienced by a
person that is being drowned in the sea.

I am always amazed to see the desperation of the Muslims to find miracles in the most
banal statements of the Quran.

This verse is not trying to explain to the readers how the deep oceans look but it is
exemplifying the state of the unbeliever with something that is already known to the
reader. This shows that people who read this verse already knew that the dept of ocean is
dark (just as anyone knows today) and with this example Muhammad tried to make them
visualize the state of the unbeliever. If they did not know that the deep waters are dark
then the verse would not express what it intends to express. If I tell you my tie is the color
of my hat, when you do know know what color is my hat, you would not understand what
color is my tie and I would not be speaking clear to you. Remember, clarity is one of the
claims of the Quran. But if I say my tie is red like cherry, you’ll soon know what color I
am talking about because you have seen cherries and you are familiar with their color.

Furthermore Muhammad is not talking about “deep oceans”. In deep oceans you do not
need to “stretch your hand” as Muhammad says, in order not to see it. You cannot see
anything.
