The focal point is that Oneness of the One-True-God is the fountain head of the system working in the Universe. Had there been no system; there would have been no science.
If there had been many gods then there would have been many systems working in the Universe; it would have been archaic universe with no science.
If there had been no god, as the atheists would have one to believe; then there would have been no universe and no science.
Is Quran a book? In what sense?
I started a thread at the forum RationalSkepticism.org; a good atheist forum. The title of the thread is “Christopher Hitchens’ book “GOD is NOT GREAT”” http://www.rationalskepticism.org/nontheism/christopher-hitchens-book-god-is-not-great-t29000.html.
A good discussion started.
I give hereunder one of my post #396

The word used in the Quran is “al-Kitab”, which translates unequivocally as “book”.

The root of the word “Kitab” is k-t-b which tells us that it means something which is in a good natural and meaningful system; is divided in chapters each meaningful in its own and then it is linked to the adjoining chapters and the whole of it in a very elaborate system; is an ethical, moral and spiritual law containing commandments and prohibitions guiding to a sublime purpose. In this sense this Recitation-Quran is called the “Book”.
One could know it better from the word “kutaibah” from the same root k-t-b, in use for a regiment -a military formation varying in size from a battalion to a number of battalions of an army; an organized group or unit systematically linked to the main Force; having an elaborate system of its own structured with the main; performing with the adjoining regiments in unison.
I think I mentioned it here earlier that as an auxiliary measure to preserve it was also committed to writing for public convenience but the original Recitation is verbal ; nevertheless both exist undoubtedly, supporting one another.
One may comment here in this blog or on the above link for further discussion in the matter.
Quran is authored by the Creator- God Allah YHWH and not authored by Muhammad; it is pristine Word of Revelation.

The whole of the Quran rests on the honesty of one man. A man who had had all the books of other religions (judaism, christianity, etc) read to him so knew them.
A suspicious person would say he used his knowledge to create a new religion, pretty much as christianity was created from judaism.
Several decades ago, L Ron Hubbard realised that a sure way to money and power was to create a new religion and he did so (scientology), and gained both. Though he died an ignominious death as a hermit, he still has many followers around the world who wait for his return.
Hi friend Sir Bernard Quatermass
Like the Universe has a system in it, likewise Quran has a system in it. One cannot create the Universe; similarly one cannot create the system Quran has for the ethical, moral and spiritual problems of man; it has claims as well as the reasons in it; impossible for a human to do it. Muhammad could not have authored Quran; it is authored by the Creator- God Allah YHWH.
