Sperm

Chromosomes not unique.

Males produce billions of sperms and each sperm has different combinations of chromosomes. On the other hand, the female ovule has just one set of chromosomes. So it is actually the male chromosomes that are not unique. This was known recently, however this was portrayed in the Quran 1400 years become it was discovered.

Quran 76:2
We created man from a mixed sperm, to test him; and We made him hearing and seeing.

٢ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَا الْإِنْسَانَ مِنْ نُطْفَةٍ أَمْشَاجٍ نَبْتَلِيهِ فَجَعَلْنَاهُ سَمِيعًا بَصِيرًا

"Amshaje أَمْشَاجٍ" means mixed or not unique. Today we know that the billions of sperms give billions of different combinations of chromosomes, while the ovule is unique.


How could an illiterate man who lived 1400 years ago have known that sperms are not unique?


(While today's scientists have confirmed that animals inherit their colors and stripes from their parents (through DNA), the Christian Bible says something else: In Genesis 30:37-42, the Bible explains how baby goats get their streaked colors: If their parents were mating AND LOOKING at upright rods then the baby goats will have stripes; while if their parents were mating BUT NOT LOOKING at upright rods then the baby goats will not have stripes!)  

The Quran (Koran, the book of Islam) contains scientific knowledge that could not have been known 1400 years ago. It ranges from basic arithmetics to the most advanced topics in astrophysics. You are invited to go through those miracles and judge for yourself.
