The Big Bang Theory in the Quran?
The following post is from our

and our 'Quran Miracles Debunked' Youtube Channel:

Question to us : Muslims say that the Big Bang theory is in the Quran , is there any truth to that?

Answer: Not in the slightest.
We actually have a video on this subject, but haven't added it to the play list yet (along with 8 others) as we want to remake them first to fit better with our newer videos.



The Quran states : 'The heavens and the Earth were joined and we clove them asunder'.
This does not conform in any way shape or form to the reality of the situation, as demonstrated in 3 points..

(1) Let's do the Maths..
The Universe is 13.8 Billion years old
The Earth is 6 Billion years old
So how can both begin at the same time?
The explanation is that they didn't.
Without going into in-depth Cosmology, The Earth was a result of a number of subsequent and common occurrences which required Hydrogen Formation and dying stars, neither of which existed or were possible at the beginning moment of the Universe.

A common nonsensical response argument is that what the Quran *really means* is that the Earth's materials were at the beginning.
Sadly, it's yet another great failing in the grasp of basic Education in the field.
With only the exception of Hydrogen, all elements to form the Earth were created through Nuclear Fusion inside the core of a star and even hydrogen itself could only form after the universe began to cool, the entire process up until the elements required for Earth existed ANYWHERE in the universe was over several Billion years , so once again, NO, the Quran is wrong.


(2) What is the Earth in contrast with everything else?
The answer is next to nothing.
Simply in our own galaxy, there are an estimated 100+ Billion stars, most of which have solar systems and plants like the ones surrounding us, and this is simply 100's of Billions of other Galaxies throughout the vastness of the universe...The argument that the Earth played any form of Vital role in the existence of the universe is absurd in light of the Evidence..

However, If you believe the Earth is the centre of a universe, solely surrounded by a handful of orbiting celestial bodies and that stars are simply low level lights ...then this argument makes perfect sense...
Not in a vast universe where we exist in a generic area of a typical galaxy among many.


(3) The verse makes no sense.
The last time I checked, the Earth was a part OF the universe, not APART from it.
The verse itself becomes confusing by the Muslims argument , but becomes entirely clear when we read the verse in the authentic context..

The Quran simply parrots common beliefs of the time period and nothing more.
The Qurans statement of separating the Earth from the Heavens is nothing new, the concept is found in all surrounding and Earlier religions/Cultures of the region.

Christianity, Judaism, Sumerian Mythology for example, all talk about a separation between the Heavens and he Earth, do they describe the Big Bang? Of course not and no one assumed this to be the case.
The reality of the situation is that the claim creates a belief that the Heavens (now known as the upper sky) and the Earth were separated (as with a brick lifted off the top of another Brick) to simply create a space between them.
All the Quran is doing (a consistent find in the Quran) is giving a vague synopsis of local beliefs which have been incorporated to give the Quran a sense of credibility and nothing more, especially not what some muslims would have you believe.

In conclusion, the Quran does not demonstrate the Big Bang theory and only appeals to archaic beliefs of creation, disproving its 'divinity' .

But let's say its intention WAS to explain the big bang theory...As we've proved - it couldn't be more wrong, so if it can't be accurate in telling us where it came from, how can we possibly consider it to be accurate to tell us where we're going?...

RE: The Big Bang Theory in the Quran?
When a believer is confronted with facts, that s/he cannot deny, that theaten the cherished belief, then the believer will grab any arguement to support his/her belief, no matter how improbable, as long as it satisfies him/her as a tool to protect ones belief. Since the big bang theory has a lot of weight scientifically, the arguement evolves to claim that the Quran knew all about it before science did. This way the religion can claim that it's book is true and use that arguement as a recruiting tool. It is not about truth, it is about building a following for profit and power. You can call it propaganda, brainwashing, lies, bullshit and a bunch of other colorful adjectives and you'd be right.

RE: The Big Bang Theory in the Quran?
I have also seen muslims using the argument that it says in the bible that allah pulls the sky apart with his hands. They interpret this as meaning allah caused the big bang.
any thoughts?

Hey brother christian, with your high and mighty errand, your actions speak so loud, I can't hear a word you're saying.

"Well this machine kills commies!"

RE: The Big Bang Theory in the Quran?
The big bang and pulling the sky apart don't have any similarity to me. Suppose one person lit a fire cracker and another ripped a newspaper in half, would they be doing the same thing?
To me these people are trying to prove their god exists, probably for themselves, with the belief that if they can convince others, then they must be right. They fail to see that convincing others and being right are two different things entirely.

RE: The Big Bang Theory in the Quran?
You say above:
"The Earth is 6 Billion years old"

The Earth is about 4.55 billion years old. Using inaccurate data diminishes the credibility of your refutation.

Notwithstanding a certain degree of ambiguity inherent in the phrase 'to form the Earth' both helium and lithium were created at the Big Bang. You really should acquire a better grasp of basic science to avoid debasing your arguments.

The Biblical creation myths were virtually identical to the Babylonian creation myths. It's where they got them.
In Comparative Mythology, it's called "syncretism".
It was the common practice of one culture, to "borrow" material from others.

RE: The Big Bang Theory in the Quran?
if really the Muslims have the theory of the big bang in their book, they would reveal it before the scientists .. they always wait for a new
discovery to claim after it that they have it in their book already.
