Moore on Islam

Embryology in the Qur’an

Moore has become well-known for his belief that statements in the Qur’an concerning embryology provide a proof of its divine origin. In his article, A Scientist’s Interpretation of References to Embryology in the Qur’an, Moore asserts that “statements referring to human reproduction and development are scattered throughout the Qur’an”, and that “the interpretation of the verses in the Qur’an referring to human development would not have been possible in the 7th century A.D., or even a hundred years ago.”[12]

Moore affirms that Qur’anic statements regarding human development make it clear that the book is of divine origin, concluding: “This proves to me that Muhammad must have been a messenger of God or Allah.”[12]
