1- Answering claims that Islam is true
Category: 13- Evidence that Islam is false
1- Would a true God keep 80 % humans unaware of Islam- his ‘only true religion’?
2- Was Allah Muhammad’s domestic servant?
3- Why will the creator of the illimitable Universe be so concerned about tiny humans?
4- Why didn’t Angel Gabriel reveal the Quran to all Meccans, show himself to all Arabian people?
5- Why didn’t God turn Muhammad into a scholar overnight and provide him with good stationery to record the Quran instead of relying on Muhammad’s supporters’ memory?
6- Why doesn’t God do anything supernatural today to prove that Islam is true, like rearranging stars in a way to read “Islam is true” ?
7-Why doesn’t God simply show himself to the people and declare every night- Islam is true, follow Muhammad?
8-Why has God left so much ambiguity and difference of opinion among believers in Islam, where Sunnis and Shias say that the others are not ‘real Muslims’ and where different scholars interpret things so vastly differently?
9-Would a true God have allowed different versions of the Quran to crop up within 20 years of Muhammad’s death in AD 632 ?
10-Will God allow millions of killings in his name by misguided followers who genuinely believe that they are spreading faith in God and doing his work?
11-Why didn’t God give the Quran in all languages, or make everyone know Arabic?
12-Will God force people to accept his religion blindly and give death to those who leave it?
Other major blunders of the Quran
There are people- strong, faithful believers, who will go to any defend to ‘explain’ errors. But in this case, it should be asked- Why should there be a need to explain contradictions in a ‘clear book’ which is supposed to be the word of God if that book is to guide humanity? Why is the help of explanations needed to understand God’s words? The best answer to show that the Quran must not be interpreted in any other way than its obvious meaning comes from the Quran itself. The Quran repeatedly claims to be a “clear book” (5:15) “easy to understand” (44:58 , 54:22 , 54:32, 54:40) “explained in detail” (6:114), “conveyed clearly”, (5:16, 10:15) and with “no doubt” in it (2:1). If at all these mistakes had any other meaning and explanation, it should have been clearly mentioned in the Quran.
1- Quran mistakes Jesus’ mother Mary for Moses’ sister Mariam
2- Quran says shooting stars are missiles to scare Jinns
3- Quran says Samaritans lived during Moses’ time, which they didn’t
4- Quran says Muhammad went to Masjid-ul-Aqsa, which did not exist in Muhammad’s time
Answering claims that Islam is true
Miracles of the Quran or Islamic hoaxes?
2- Victory of the Romans and the lowest point on earth
3-The Quran on seas and rivers
4-The Quran on Human Embryonic Development
And here is the reality and this
And also, this presentation by William Campbell. Another Islamic hoax.
5- The Quran on mountains
And here is the reality Islamic hoax.
6-Speed of Light in the Quran?
8-The Quran on deep seas and internal waves
9-The Quran on expanding universe and Big Bang
10- 7 layers of the Atmosphere
16- Seas not mixing
What all this shows is that since there is no evidence at all that Islam is true, not a single sentence in the Quran which could not have been said by 7th century Arabs, and every single sentence in the Quran can be explained from Muhammad’s own socio-cultural background, Muslims resort to such tricks. These claims are actually Islamic hoaxes, and not miracles of the Quran. And none of the so-called ‘miracles’ [which are actually hoaxes, and some of them are actually mistakes] are in clear language. If Allah knew that the Dead Sea is the lowest point, why didn’t he simply say so- “Dead Sea is the lowest Point”? Simple and clear! But nothing like this is said in simple and clear language in the Quran.
Why should there be a need to explain these ‘miracles’ in a ‘clear book’ like the Quran? The best answer to show that the Quran must not be interpreted in any other way than its obvious meaning comes from the Quran itself. The Quran repeatedly claims to be a “clear book” (5:15) “easy to understand” (44:58 , 54:22 , 54:32, 54:40) “explained in detail” (6:114), “conveyed clearly”, (5:16, 10:15) and with “no doubt” in it (2:1). And not a single of the ‘miracles’ aka hoaxes is in clear language.
It should also be remembered that when real scholars debate real scholars, they do not bring forward any of the above amateurish claims. For example, two real scholars (not showmen like Zakir Naik) of Pakistan, Javed Ahmed Ghamidi and Khaled Zaheer debated with Ali Sina of www.faithfreedom.org. In that wonderful debate, all arguments and counter-arguments are excellent and worth reading. But when Ali Sina asked for evidence that Muhammad was a Prophet of God, neither of the great debators could provide any. If these ‘Miracles of the Quran’ aka hoaxes were truly miracles, these real scholars would have definitely brought them as evidence in support of the claim that Islam is true. That great and lengthy debate can be read here.

An important 46-paged book on ‘Corruption and distortion in the Quran’ by Amar Khan is also available. It is available on www.islam-watch.org but since that website is banned in many countries like India, it is necessary to preserve it elsewhere, like here https://www.mediafire.com/file/cduxmpc0q1vkde5/Corruption_and_distortion-tahreef_in_the_Quran_by_Amar_Khan.pdf/file .
Mistakes in the Quran
Faithful believers go to any level to bend all rules of logic to deny the undeniable, defend the indefensible and explain the unexplainable.Why should there be a need to explain contradictions in a ‘clear book’? The best answer to show that the Quran must not be interpreted in any other way than its obvious meaning comes from the Quran itself. The Quran repeatedly claims to be a “clear book” (5:15), “easy to understand” (44:58, 54:22, 54:32, 54:40), “explained in detail” (6:114), “conveyed clearly” (5:16, 10:15), and with “no doubt” in it (2:1). For such a book, if errors and contradictions appear to be obvious, then the book itself should clarify the explanations- human explanations to clarify clear contradictions reveal that the book needs human interpretations to understand.
The Quran says: The food for the people in Hell will be only “Dhari” 88:6, “only foul pus from the washing of wounds” 69:36, and “they also get to eat from the tree of Zaqqum” 37:62-66?
There are many contradictions in the Quran. Even a single error is enough to dismiss the Quran as a word of God. All religious books are also written by humans. The Bible too contains many mistakes, many contradictions, as does the Jewish scripture, Talmud. Hindu scriptures like Vedas, Puranas too contain contradictions and factual errors. But Hindus do not regard their books to be written by GOD to be obeyed by all without question. They know that all books are man-made, and that they are free to accept or reject any or all parts of the books. Same open mindedness shown by all, with respect to their religious books will ensure tolerance and world peace. When everyone understands that all books are human made, not just of their own religion or others’ religion.
