Next, I asked myself: How could one prove or disprove these assumptions? I believed that scripture could provide the answers, particularly the Quran. Muslims believe that the Quran is still in its original form, exactly as it was communicated to Mohammed 1400 years ago, presumably by God. Moreover Muslims pride themselves on the numerous ultra-modern scientific proofs contained in the Quran. My mission was therefore to study the original Arabic Quran, focussing on its scientific verses and examining it from a modern, scientific perspective. If an error was detected or a verse was shown to be outdated, the Quran would lose its divine status.
Putting aside any prejudice and with the help of an Arabic linguist, I set about my task, and commenced an in-depth study of the scientific verses of the Quran. I was catapulted into an extra-ordinary journey of discovery, from the explosive birth of the universe, through the various stages of cosmic evolution to the Big Crunch. Verse after verse, the Quran revealed the secrets of the universe, disclosing stunning new information never recorded in works of a similar nature. “In precise scientific language, the ancient Book expresses its superior knowledge of creation: The violent temperatures in the beginning, cosmic expansion, the nature of space-time, Einstein’s concept of gravity, the lifecycle of stars, quantum features of the forces of nature and the origin and evolution of life. The Quran further contains reference to atoms, cells and DNA, the rejection of the soul hypothesis, embryology and extraterrestrial existence…”
In summary, I have discovered that the Quran addresses key concepts and fundamental principles which underlie the structure and function of the universe. The inevitable, crucial question thus follows: how could an illiterate desert-dweller like Mohammed, trapped in the 7th century stamp his authority on the wall of every scientific discipline and made these incredible predictions with 100 % accuracy? Such ideas were not in the vocabulary of that age; in fact many of them have only been uncovered in the last few decades. The probability of a single historical figure venturing into the then unknown intricacies of modern cosmology, evolution, genetics and chemistry, extracting its key principles and accurately describe them, was a flat zero. On the other hand, the probability of making absurd predictions was utterly overwhelming. Even if all the wise men of today congregated, pooling their knowledge, they would not be able to produce the likeness of the Quran. Their imperfect knowledge of the universe would be exposed within the twinkling of an eye. Weighing up the evidence, there remains only one explanation consistent with the facts: Mohammed, the supposed author of the Quran, was advised by a superior intelligence. Through studying the ancient scripture, my initial assumptions (if God exists there must be convincing evidence of his existence; and God would never violate his own laws), were validated.
This is the foundation of Document X; exploring the limitless scientific vision of the Quran which led to the inescapable conclusion – God is the author of the Quran and therefore must exist.
