Anthropocentrism and divine objectivity : some observations on the logic behind the "Scientific Miracle of the Qur'an"
Mateo Dieste, Josep Lluís (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona)

Data: 2015
Resum: The "scientific miracle of the Qur'an" acquired its present-day form and gained momentum after Maurice Bucaille's success in 1976, when authors like the Yemenite Zindani or Khalifa set out for ambitious goals such as the scientific demonstration of Qur'anic "miracles. " In the context of the Seventh Saudi Medical Conference (1982) Zindani set up a committee to investigate the scientific signs in the Qur'an and the Hadith. Since then world congresses and local ones have been frequent, including the publication of books and materials that new information technology decisively helped to spread. The "scientific miracle" is a trend of popular culture that is shaped and nourished by the new media and by new dynamics in the creation of Muslim authoritativeness involving Muslim scientists and institutions at university level. For instance, in Tétouan (Morocco), an association affiliated with the organization of congresses on the scientific miracles of the Qur'an organizes, in the faculty of sciences, conferences in which the scientific character of the Qur'an is discussed.
