Does scientific proof of evolution automatically invalidate Quran’s divinity?

Answer by Jim Ashby:

Thanks for the A2A, Prasanth!

Unlike the Bible, the Quran is (allegedly) the literal truth. It doesn't employ parables or symbolism or allegory, etc. We can claim that parts of the Bible should not be taken literally. The same is not true of the Quran. Every word is, by it's own proclamation, literally true.

If the Quran is the literal word of Allah — perfect, inerrant and complete — then evolution proves the Quran and the word of Allah are not perfect, inerrant and complete. The claim of inerrancy is false.

This could mean that Allah made a mistake . . . or that the Quran has interpolations . . . or that the Quran was not written by Allah . . . or that Allah does not exist and that Muhammad manufactured the Quran from his imagination.

There were no proto-humans named Adam and Eve because homo sapien sapiens evolved from predecessor species. The Abrahamic creation myths are all false . . . which means any claim to scriptural inerrancy are also false.
