"It is the Truth" is a visually attractive site that is full of colorful pictures and illustrations. It is based on the work of Sheikh Abdul Majeed Zindani and the Commission on Scientific Signs in the Quran and Sunnah, an institution that once enjoyed the support of Osama bin Laden. The goal of this webpage is to convince us that the Qur'an contains scientific facts, many of which were discovered recently, in order to prove that the Qur'an is of divine origin. The "science" of the Qur'an presented here is, in most cases, constructed from extreme extrapolations of a word, or phrase, taken from the Qur'an or Hadith.
The authors also cite many "authorities" who believe (although most do not publish these beliefs, especially in the west) that the Qur'an is factually correct. Some of these experts are well known, but this can hardly imply that their opinions are beyond question. Many of the better-known scientists claim that the website "It is the Truth" mis-represents their opinions, including Dr. Simpson, Professor Palmer, Dr. Goeringer, and Dr. Hay.
For some others their status as "experts" seems to be overrated since their names cannot be found in any major institution and no academic papers have been published under their names. In any event, let us scientifically evaluate if "It is Truth".
