Surah 96: Science
- Thy Lord ... createth man from a clot."
Humans were created from a clot? 96:1-2
- If he denieth (Allah's guidance) ... We will seize him by the forelock - The lying, sinful forelock."
Some Muslims say that when Allah talks about the "forelock" here, he is acutally referring to the prefrontal cortex,
which, as modern science has recently found out, is the place where all that lying and sinful stuff happens. It's just one of the many
scientific miracles in the Quran. 96:13-16
