I replied as follows
Muhammad didn't pick out only the ones which were correct. He also picked out the ones which were wrong, but due to the flexibility of the Arabic language and/or the flexibility of the minds of those who translate it it is possible to pretend those verses mean something else.
For example, in Aristotle's chicken experiments where he observed the developmental stages of chickens do you know what the first stage is? A clot of blood! A blood clot appears, which then spreads out (forming veins) and then starts to twitch regularly. As people hadn't done experiments on human bodys at the time it was common throughout the world for people to believe human bodys worked in the same way we observed animals.
People read the Quran where it says we are made as an "Alaqa" and instead of interpreting it as "clot of blood" as it was for many years we now know that the embryo is NEVER a clot of blood so it is instead translated to mean "leech like clot" - where people are asked to concentrate on the words "leech like" and ignore the word "clot" which is still wrong!
If you read Ibn Kathir....."then We made the Nutfah, which is the water gushing forth that comes from the loins of man, i.e., his back, and the ribs of woman, i.e., the bones of her chest, between the clavicle and the breast. Then it becomes a red clot, like an elongated clot."
Not only does this corroborate that the Quran is talking about a blood clot rather than a leech, but it also shows how the liquid gushes from between the man's back and his ribs. Do you know why? Because the Vas Deferens tube hooks over the pipe going from the kidney to the bladder - so people used to see this pathway and think that sperm was made from between the ribs and the backbone (the kidney area) rather than realising it was made just below the penis but took a detour on only one side.
At the time Galen's books were THE medical authority for most of the world, they were translated into many languages. I open the Quran and see the same mistakes as in Galens book and then I am asked to believe that they really mean something different and more obscure, and that these words came to Muhammad via an invisible angel made of light that only Muhammad could see which was sent by an intelligent creator of the universe who wanted to give all mankind a message but for some reason chose not provide us with supernatural evidence of its supernatural origin - and you ask me to believe this because the idea that Muhammad got a book out from the library is too far fetched?
Just in case they delete it.
