Scientists Say Oldest Koran is OLDER than Muhammad’s Lifetime, Reveals False Religion of Islam

In a discovery that could destroy Islam’s claims of legitimacy, scientists and historians in England have discovered a Koran that scientists date to between 568AD and 654AD making it the oldest Koran in existence. But the newly dated manuscript actually pre-dates the years during which Muslims claim their prophet Muhammad lived and that would mean that the whole religion is built on false claims.

Muslims claim that Muhammad lived sometime between 570AD and 632AD but if scientists are right about the dating of this newly discovered Koran it predates the time when Muslims say that Muhammad was living his life and being inspired by god to write the Koran. This would entirely undermine the whole basis for Islam.

The pages, thought to be between 1,448 and 1,371 years old, were discovered bound within the pages of another Koran from the late seventh century at the library of the University of Birmingham.

Written in ink in an early form of Arabic script on parchment made from animal skin, the pages contain parts of the Suras, or chapters, 18 to 20, which may have been written by someone who actually knew the Prophet Muhammad – founder of the Islamic faith

The pages were carbon-dated by experts at the University of Oxford, a process which showed the Islamic holy book manuscript could be the oldest Koran in the world.

The discovery was said to be particularly significant as in the early years of Islam, the Koran was thought to have been memorised and passed down orally rather written.

But now several historians have said that the parchment might even predate Muhammad.

It is believed that the Birmingham Koran was produced between 568AD and 645AD, while the dates usually given for Muhammad are between 570AD and 632AD.

Historian Tom Holland, told the Times: ‘It destabilises, to put it mildly, the idea that we can know anything with certainty about how the Koran emerged – and that in turn has implications for the history of Muhammad and the Companions.’

Keith Small, from the University of Oxford’s Bodleian Library, added: ‘This gives more ground to what have been peripheral views of the Koran’s genesis, like that Muhammad and his early followers used a text that was already in existence and shaped it to fit their own political and theological agenda, rather than Muhammad receiving a revelation from heaven.

Now, note that these pages were written before the time when Muslims say that Muhammad wrote the “real” Koran, yet the words in these older pages are nearly the same as those in the modern Koran.

If the dating on these newly discovered pages is correct, this would prove that Islam is a political ideology based on previous writings, not a bible inspired by god and written by the prophet Muhammad.
