... Any ancient midwife, let alone Medeival midwife, would know that there are three stages in embryonic development.

Anyways, who cares? Does this help anyone in the world today solve problems of murder and famine? Muhummad said something quasi-scientific, does that have anything to do with man's relationship to God? No.

Science is the demonstration of how God works. What created the universe? The Big Bang. But what force created the super dense molecule of the universe, wrote its properties, and provided the spark to explode it? I think a better question should be asked, not what created the universe, but how did it come into existence, or: How did God create the Universe? Through the Big Bang. The question of its properties, spark, and existence is answered. To understand science is to understand the mind of God- as exemplified by Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein.

However, science does not prove the existence of God, because the supra natural can only be proved by faith.
