"Prof. Gerald Goeringer, an embryologist retired from Georgetown University, says he urged the commission to try some verification: hire an independent scholar to see whether the Quran's statements could have been taken from Aristotle, the Greek philosopher-scientist who preceded the book by nearly 1,000 years. After his request was denied, Prof. Goeringer says, he stopped going to the conferences for fear of being associated with fanaticism.

"It was mutual manipulation," he says. "We got to go places we wouldn't otherwise go to. They wanted to add some respectability to what they were publishing." ~ Daniel Golden, Western Scholars Play Key Role In Touting 'Science' of the Quran. Wall Street Journal, 2002.

"As Dr. Persaud said, we don't read Arabic. The Scholars translated for us. We simply give our interpretations. We are not saying they are accurate." - Dr. Keith Moore
