One of the most popular verse of Quran used by anti Islamists to prove
scientific errors in the Quran is the the following.
[27:18] When they approached the valley of the ants, one ant said, “O you ants, go into your homes, lest you get crushed by Solomon and his soldiers, without perceiving.”
This is noted as an absurdity in the skeptics annotated bible/quran.
Also Twenty first century atheists at Secular Web (infidels.org) state this ‘error’ in a 7th century scripture is understandable
“What is even worse is the verses cited have this man hearing the speech of ants! It is a scientific fact that ants have no speech patterns. They communicate through chemical trails, and other forms of odor. In otherwords
they communicate via smell, not sound! This blunder is understandable, as the average desert Arab in the seventh century would not know this. However this lack of knowledge of the animal kingdom proves human origin of the text, and disputes theories of a divine origin.”
What’s more, Christians didn’t fail to miss this too. AnsweringIslam.org has this to say under the title ‘A Quran Difficulty: Ants Cannot Talk’
“But then there are these amazing facts about Ants that in contradiction to the Qur’an, ants do communicate using smells, not modulation of sounds. Solomon could not have heard any talk since ants do not produce any.”
However, all these losers have only succeeded in make a laughing stock out of themselves as very recent research proves that Ants can and do talk and specifically use complex speech patterns to warn other ants of danger
exactly as Solomans ants did in the Quran.
“Research several decades ago had shown that ants were able to make alarm calls using sounds, but only now has it been shown that their vocabulary may be much bigger and that they can “talk” to each other. “
“Soon will We show them our Signs in the (furthest) regions (of the earth), and in their own souls, until it becomes manifest to them that this is the Truth. Is it not enough that thy Lord is witness over all things?” 41:53
