The use of the title “Pharaoh”

In the Old Testament, the Egyptian ruler during the period of Prophet Abraham and Prophet Joseph are named “Pharaoh.” However, this title was actually employed after the eras in which these two Prophets lived.

While addressing the Egyptian ruler at the time of Prophet Joseph, the word “Al-Malik” in Arabic is used in the Qur’an: It refers to a ruler, king or sultan:

(Qur’an, 12:50) The King said, ‘Bring him to me straight away!’…

Tectonics

Earth’s crust has been slowly moving for billions of years. Not only mountains are still slowly moving but also whole continents. Moslems say that this is what Allah says:

However today scientists have confirmed that animals do not act by instinct alone…

Brain Functions

For centuries it was thought that the frontal part of the human brain handled vision (simply because it is near the eyes). Today we know that this part does not handle vision. The part that handles vision turned out to be at the rear of the brain (enlarge image). The front part of the brain is called the prefrontal vortex and is responsible for concocting lies: Pathological liars have more prefrontal white matter…
