One day a group of scientists got together and decided that man had come a long way and no longer needed God. They picked one scientist to go and tell Him that they were done with Him. The scientist walked up to God and said, “God, we’ve decided that we no longer need you. We’re to the point that we can clone people and do many miraculous things, so why don’t you just leave us be.”
God listened patiently to the man and after the scientist was finished talking, God said, “Very well. How about this? Let’s have a man making contest.”
The scientist, with great arrogance said, “That would be fine.”
The Lord added, “Now, we are going to do this just like I did back in the old days with Adam.”
The scientist said, “Sure, no problem,” then bent down and grabbed a handful of dirt.
God said to the scientist, “No, no, no. You go get your own dirt!”
And certainly We created man of an extract of clay, Then We made him a small seed in a firm resting-place, Then We made the seed a clot, then We made the clot a lump of flesh, then We made (in) the lump of flesh bones, then We clothed the bones with flesh, then We caused it to grow into another creation, so blessed be Allah, the best of the creators. Then after that you will most surely die. Then surely on the day of resurrection you shall be raised. Holy Qur’an (23:12-16)Referring to the above verses in the Qur’an, Dr. Keith Moore of the University of Toronto says:
“This verse from the Koran states that God made you from a drop and then changed the drop into a leech-like structure which soon changed into a chewed like substance that then took the shape of bone and was clothed with flesh.”
To illustrate his point about the accuracy of the Qur’an, Dr. Moore lined up a picture of a leech and a picture of a human embryo at 24 days old to show the striking similarity between the two. Similarly, he compared the human embryo at 28 days with a plasticine model of the embryo with teeth marks deliberately impressed on it and found the two to be quite Similar.
Then did he become a leech-like clot; then did (GOD) make and fashion (him) in due proportion. Holy Qur’an (75:38)
And made his progeny from a quintessence of the nature of a fluid despised: Holy Qur’an (32:8)Dr. Moore then turns his attention to the mention in the Qur’an (75:38) that humans are created from a nutfa, a tiny drop of fluid, which gushed forth, and that God made the progeny of men from “an extraction of despised fluid (32:8).”
