The Algorithm: If a statement in a book (Quran or any other) agrees with modern scientific fact then it can be one or more of the following 8 possibilities:
A. The author was as a genius.
B. The author took a guess and got it right.
C. The author was a great scientist.
D. Coincidence; Author did not intend to make a scientific statements.
E. Common Sense.
F. Scientific fact is observable (without modern equipment).
G. Information pre-existed in history (plagiarism).
H. A source greater then man was the author of these statements.
Nader Ahmed goes through these possibilities and sees if they can apply to the scientific statements in the Quran. He also takes a look at some common logical fallacies made by critics in their studies of Quran and Modern Science, these include:
1. Fallacy of multiple interpretations.
2. The science pre-existed in other books
3. Looking for scientific errors to distract from real issues.
