Chromosomes and the Koran

February 5, 2018 Leave a comment

Human beings have 46 chromosomes. When a man and woman procreate together, the man contributes 23 chromosomes to their child and the woman contributes 23 chromosomes to the child as well. There are some interesting mathematical wonders pertaining to the number 46 in the Koran.

The definite singular of this word occurs 46 times before Surah 76 – The Human. The 46th verse in the Koran to contain the definite singular of this word is Koran 76:1. (It occurs twice in Koran 17:11.) This word occurs 64 times in the definite singular and once in the indefinite singular (Koran 17:13). So, in the singular form this word occurs 65 times in the Koran. 65 is the 46th composite number. (Composite numbers are numbers divisible by numbers other than themselves. Prime numbers are divisible only by themselves and 1.) Here are the composite numbers up to 65. I grouped them in fives. You can count them.


If you add the numbers of all of the chapters preceding Surah 76 which have the definite singular form of this word, you will get 961.

4 + 10 + 11 + 12 + 14 + 15 + 16 + 17+ 18 + 19 + 21 + 22 + 23 + 25 +  29 = 256
31 + 32 + 33 + 36 + 39 + 41 + 42 + 43 + 46 + 50 + 53 + 55 + 59 = 560
70 + 75 = 145

256 + 560 + 145 = 961

961 = 31 x 31

46 is the 31st composite number.

The haploid chromosome number of humans is 23 — the number contributed by each parent in procreation. The 23rd occurrence of the singular form of this Arabic word is in Koran 31:14. (Count the occurrence in Koran 17:13 where it occurs in the indefinite singular.) Remember that 46 is the 31st composite number. The 23rd occurrence of the singular form is in the 31st chapter of the Koran.

If you count all of the occurrences of this word in all of its forms, you will get 71. 71 is the 36th odd number. 36 = 6 x 6. According to Genesis, God created man on the sixth day. (Genesis 1:26-31)

These are just a few interesting mathematical wonders in the Koran.


How to Make a Dog from Scratch

February 24, 2013 Leave a comment

    How would you like to be able to make a living, breathing animal that someone in the future can take home with him for a pet? It is possible to do this and this is scientific!

    The animal I am going to provide instructions for one to make is a dog. Dogs are loyal, friendly animals after they have been tamed and cared for by their masters. They can help people in a variety of ways. They serve as guard dogs and let their owners know when someone has come onto their property. They help blind people walk by guiding them. They help find people who get lost in the woods or on a desert or a mountain. They have an excellent sense of smell.

    Anyway, I am going to explain this very simple and easy method of manufacturing a living, breathing dog with all of its organs.

    Here is what you need. You need carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and other elements such as sulfur, phosphorus, iron, and zinc.     Carbon is easy to find. Just  get a bag of charcoal or burn some wood if you do not want to buy any. Hydrogen and oxygen are the two elements that make up water. Just get some water. There is also oxygen, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen in the air we breathe. Air is easy to find. You will need to get iron for the animal’s red blood cells. Some iron nails will probably do or any old piece of scrap iron. Sulphur can be found in eggs, but I think in order to make this animal from scratch you will need to use pure sulphur. You can probably purchase this from a pharmacy. Phosphorus is what is used to make matches. Just scrape off the phosphorus on some matches. Zinc and copper are in pennies. Also, there are a lot of screws and bolts that are made of zinc nowadays. Just get some pennies and zinc screws and bolts.

   Put all of these items in a tub. Let them set there for millions of years. One day, all of these inorganic elements will combine together to form various living organisms that will eventually evolve into a dog. This is scientific! Inorganic matter can actually assemble itself into complex proteins, form kidneys, brains, bladders, hearts, lungs, and strands of DNA all on its own. No need for the help of a deity!

Boy, it sure takes a lot of faith to be an atheist!
