This is an index page for articles written by "Martin Taverille" at quranspotlight. Most of the pages listed in the Category at the bottom of this page were copied over from his website.
In addition, several years later he substantially rewrote some of the existing articles here with much better, and in many cases new arguments and evidence (having already made incremental improvements to some of them on occasion). These articles include:
Embryology in the Qur'an (entirely rewritten, except for a few of the sub-sections at the end of the article).
Geocentrism and the Qur'an (most sections completely rewritten or new)
Flat Earth in the Qur'an (mostly rewritten with some improved and new sections, and added Lane's Lexicon definitions and links for the verse sections)
Scientific errors in the Qur'an (removed some weak sections, and rewrote the bulk of the astronomy, flat Earth, and many of the biology sub-sections)
This is a wiki, so future editors might make further changes.
Around that time he made significant additions and improvements to many other articles, such as Corruption of the Qur'an, Wife beating in Islam, and Qur'an, Hadith and Scholars: Apostasy. He also fixed some unjustified criticisms of Islam, such as the article which used to claim that Muhammad drank wine, which he rewrote, removing the original claim and debunking it therein.
He also co-authored the paper Embryology in the Qur'an: Much Ado about Nothing, which was a response to a lengthy and extremely misleading document produced by iERA, the Islamic Education and Research Academy, which is a major Salafist da'wah (proselytising) organisation. This response directly led to a change of policy by iERA and their Head of Research, Hamza Tzortzis, who withdrew their embryology paper and renounced the scientific miracles approach to da'wah in 2013. iERA now runs workshops debunking scientific miracle claims and teaching da'wah teams not to use this approach.
