4.0 out of 5 stars Nice but needs a more modern version, October 30, 2007
This review is from: The Bible, the Qur'an and Science: (La Bible, le Coran et la Science) The Holy Scriptures Examined in the Light of Modern Knowledge, translated from the French (Paperback)
Even though this book works in my favour as a Muslim, I did find it a bit boorish. He begins off with the Old and New Testament which I found quite intriguing but when he analysed the Qur'an and science it was not nearly in-depth enough and Dr Bucaille could have provided more and better examples when amplifying his research. Since this book is written in the 1970s I do believe there should be a more modern version.

However it does illustrate the wonderous nature of science in the Qur'an. Dr Bucaille presents the fact that the Qur'an contains information that scientists have only discovered recently. A few examples include how the Qur'an states that the universe began as a smoky/gassy substance and is constantly expanding which corresponds with modern science.

Are you serious? You actually believe that the Quran is a scientific book? Read Stephen Knapp's "Proof of Vedic Culture's Global Existence" cause he believes that the Hindu Vedas are scientifically correct also!! Also read my review and see if your God really is as scientific as you think he is. Your God is actually a clumsy historian that doesn't even give essential details that may help the Quran be recognized as a historical book. I challenge you to read the Quran and answer the following questions:
Where was Jesus? How long was he here on earth? Who were his disciples? What about David, Where was he Born? Did he become king? If so when? What was God's message to him? Was there more that God told him? Or was God that vague and clumsy in his message to David? When did Moses exist? Did he see the Promise land? Where is the Promise Land? What century did Jesus live in? Under what Roman Governor did Jesus live under? What did Moses tell Aron? When was Solomon born? Did anything special happen to him? What about Noah, how long did the flood last? Or Joseph, who were his brothers? Can your Quran give places, people, events with high specificity? Think about why the there is no such thing as Quranic Archeology. Becuase the Quran is filled with mythologies. Those stories are just as real as Mother Goose stories. Why is there an actual Biblical Archeology? Which is better the one with hitorical evidence or the one without any historical evidence except for the history of Arabia at the time of Muhammad.?

R. Hamed says:
Dr Bucaille book is in relation to science, the questions you ask have nothing to do with science. All the answers you are looking for are in the Hadiths [saying and actions of the prophet]. Considering you ask a fair few number of questions, I dont really have time to answer them, It will just take too long.

Thanks for your reply R. Hamed. But I have researched this out a bit. I have read the hadiths already and find little or no historical answers to my questions. The Hadiths are primarily useless in terms of history of the events in the Quran but it is the best source for information on the historical Muhammed. Thats about it. Like you stated the hadiths are "[saying and actions of the prophet]" thats it. There isn't much on David, Moses , Jesus etc. This is why even the hadith doesn't answer those questions.

Now lets say that the hadith were to address some of my questions in incredible detail like in the bible. The question I would ask you is: If the quran was dictated by God directly and answers none of the essential historical question and the hadiths do address historical reliability, then I shouldn't I believe the hadith more than the quran? After all if thi scenario was the case, then it looks like fallible humans who wrote the hadith are more historically informed than the all knowing Islamic God who writes vague stories with no emphasis on reality. In this case humans are superior to your God, no?

Thanks for reading.
