For Atheists: Honey Bees

                                   For Atheists: Honey Bees

The worker bees, those who gather pollen and make the honey, are actually all females. The male bees do not make honey[i]. This was only known recently. However 1400 years ago the Quran refers to bees that generate the honey as females (the Arabic grammar is in the female mode):

[Quran 16.68-69] And your Lord (Allah) revealed to the bees: Build your hives in mountains, trees and in what people build. Then eat (for females) from every fruit and follow (for females) your Lord’s enslaved paths, from their bellies (for females) exits drink of different colors, in it healing for man. These are signs for those who contemplate.

  • For the word “eat”: “Kuli” is for females; “Kul” is for males. The Quran used “Kuli” (females).
  • For the word “follow a path”: “Usluki” is for females; “Usluk” is for males. The Quran used “Usluki” (females).
  • For the word “their bellies”: “butuniha” is for females; “butunihim” is for males. The Quran used “butuniha” (females).

How could an illiterate man who lived 1400 years ago have known that those honey making bees are females?
