One Verse That Proves the Quran is False

“And if you are in doubt about those of your women who have despaired of menstruation, (you should know that) their waiting period is three months, and the same applies to those who have not menstruated as yet…”
Quran 65:4, Maududi translation

The explanatory footnote reads, “They may not have menstruated either due to young age, or due to delayed menstrual discharge as it happens in the case of some women, or no discharge at all throughout life which, though rare, may also be the case. In any case, the waiting-period of such a woman is the same as of the woman who has despaired of menstruation, that is, three months from the time of pronouncing the divorce.” [Italics mine]

We see here that the Quran is referring to pre-menstrual, pre-pubescent girls as sexual fair game. Scientifically speaking, this practice is dangerous. Children born to teenaged mothers have higher infant mortality, higher incidences of underdeveloped organs, low birth weight, bleeding in the brain, respiratory distress and intestinal problems (Sources: 1 and 2) Teen mothers are at greater risk for conditions such as toxemia, pregnancy-induced hypertension, significant anemia, and placenta previa. The maternal death rate for mothers age 15 or younger is 60% greater than that of women in their 20s. (Source)

There is another Quranic verse that, like this, promotes another behavior which is dangerous and medically irresponsible. In this case, its incest:

“O prophet, we have made lawful to you those of your wives, whose dowers you have paid, and those women who came into your Possession out of the slave-girls granted by Allah, and the daughters of your paternal uncles and aunts, and of your maternal uncles and aunts, who have migrated with you, and the believing woman who gives herself to the Prophet if the Prophet may desire to marry her.”  Quran 33:50, Maududi translation

Birth defects are common in the offspring of incestuous relationships. The British news media have occasionally discussed the problem of disproportionate rates of birth defects and genetic problems in the offspring of the United Kingdom’s Pakistani population, due to its traditional practice of first-cousin marriage, which is not uncommon in the Islamic world.

Excerpt:

“It is estimated that at least 55% of British Pakistanis are married to first cousins and the tradition is also common among some other South Asian communities and in some Middle Eastern countries…

Communities that practice cousin marriage experience higher levels of some very rare but very serious illnesses – illnesses known as recessive genetic disorders…

Myra Ali has a very rare recessive genetic condition, known as Epidermolisis Bulosa.

Her parents were first cousins. So were her grandparents.

‘My skin is really fragile, and can blister very easily with a slight knock or tear,’ she says.”
