Atheists....?

this is a verse from Holy Quran about embroyology and you tell me how some one other than God wouldve known this 1400 hundred years ago. "Subsequently, we produced him from a tiny drop, that is placed into a well protected repository. then we developed the drop into a hanging(embryo), then developed the hanging (embryo) into a bite-size (fetus), then created the bite-size(fetus) into bones, then covered the bones with flesh. we thus created a new creature. most blessed is God, the best creator, then, later on, you die. then, on the day of resurrection, you will be resurrected. [Quran 23:12-16]. Embroyologists also agree with this verse.

    "then created the bite-size(fetus) into bones, then covered the bones with flesh."

    Doesn't sound very scientific to me. There's no point when a fetus is just a collection of bones. And it claims that the zygote is from the male gamete only. This isn't true.

    If that's God, then He doesn't know much about how babies are made.

    It is the epitome of misinterpretation.

    Here is your verse without the misdirections that you have added:

    We created man from the purest kind of clay; then made him a drop in a secure receptacle; then formed the drop into a clot and formed the clot into a lump and formed the lump into bones and clothed the bones in flesh; and then brought him into being as another creature. Blessed be God, the Best of Creators! Then subsequently you will certainly die. Then on the Day of Rising you will be raised again. (Qur'an, 23: 12-16)

    First of all, it starts with clay... They are wrong already!!! Then it says that a clot will turn into lump and lump into bones. Sorry, but any biologist will dispute that. The outer layer is formed first, not the bones. Then stating the obvious that we will die after we are born is preaching to the ignorant!!! A big "Duh" is in order on that one.

    does someone have to be an Embryologist to understand that from a tiny seed a baby grows ?

    because that is all it is basically saying

    flesh comes before bones actually.

    are the words in parenthesis (embryo and fetus) from the text, or are they inserted?

    The Quran is a ridiculous book written by delusional people.

    maybe all the bellies of pregnant women ripped open by the swords of Islam over the years enabled them to say this,

    You don't need divine inspiration to find out about reproduction, you need reason and objective evidence, which interestingly enough are the very things which refute religious belief.

    The same way we know these things now. They looked. Plenty of dead people to study, same as now.
