Ref: http://www.submission.org/miracle/endless.html

Many of you might've heard of this or seen it before. Quranic miracles that deal with numbers, for example, ratio of word "Land" to "Sea" gives you the 71%:29% (actual ratio of land:sea on Earth).

Has anyone here actually confirmed this? I've seen this claimed on more than one website, but they never give guidelines on how to actually confirm them numbers for ourselves.

Meaning no offence, these 'numbers  miracle' actually trouble me too..there is a site in which u can search for any word and, as u might know that 'death' and 'life'(al Hayat, Al maut) come exactly 145 times:but is that really so?Check this site:http://www.hti.umich.edu/k/koran/simple.html

Type life and then death.Watch for ur self.

Can some one tell me where is the problem?

Yes, Dayem. That is the point I'm trying to raise. If this "miracle" is fabricated, why is it still preached? Confirming it is not a simple task either, since one would have to search the terms in Arabic instead of English.

I heard that in the koran Adam is mentioned 23 times and 'Awaa (Eve) is mentioned 23 times. Together it's 46 which is the number of chromosomes which make up the DNA of a human being.

Alif it's number value in arabic is 1

Daal is 5

Meem is 40

 

these 3 letters form Adam in arabic and the number value is 46!

This is all "I've heard" and "I've read". What about "I've counted"? Can someone do us a favour and do a real count?

Community; Yes, dam does mean blood. But why is this significant? Adam itself means dust (red dust or clay).
