    Positive claim. Care to provide evidence?

      Google "HUMAN BODY" "BONES FUSE" for discussions. The complication is that many bones begin as cartilage in the uterus and only later become bones and bones fuse together- is a bone a bone when it's not yet made of bone? are two bones which have fused together one bone or two with a fixed joint? People are going to adopt the version that supports their views.

        Discussions?
        This isn't my area of profession nor interest, so I don't know "where to look", maybe you could provide some sources? Can't seem to find "useful" stuff by searching like that.

          Well, as i don't know how much you know or whether if you find something you don't want to know if you'll dismiss it as "biased". any anatomy book would give info.
          http://www-personal.une.edu.au/~pbrown3/skeleton.pdf has a good account of human bone development. The sacrum- the human tail-bone- is an example; you can decide it's one bone or anything up to five depending which suits you better.

            Ah.... Ammarcool. You were not paying attention.

            I said "never return with those references" you promised. I note they are still not in this latest post. They are:

            1- A scientific reference (any reference) from prior to 1995 in which scientists claim that there are 340 joints in the human body.

            2- The "scientific paper" from 1995 in which it is announced that 20 new joints have been discovered in the human ears.

            3- Any scientific reference at all that describes these 20 joints in the human ears.

            I'm not done reading the new contributions to the thread. Perhaps you've included them below.

            We'll see, wont we?

              I never said you made that claim. You'll note I specifically held Ammarcool responsible for that claim, not you.

              As for whether or not your discussion on scientific disagreement was a diversion from the subject of the thread, we disagree. No big deal.

                Vertebrae = cartilaginous joints: vertebra: each of the bones of the spinal column. Cartilaginous joints: flexibility due to cartilage, an elastic tissue.
                Skull = immovable joints: skull: bony case of the brain. Fixed joints: joints that do not allow flexibility.
                Elbow = hinged joint: elbow: joint connecting the forearm to the upper arm. Hinged joint: flexible in only one direction.
                Hip = ball and socket joint: hip: part on the side of the body, between the waist and the top of the thigh.
                Ball and socket joint: flexibility due to a domed bone that turns in a cavity of the same shape.
                Great. This advances your argument... how exactly?

                  All of which are true, but none of which help your argument.

                  So... go ahead. We are still waiting. Provide us with the references in which they have been counted. We have been waiting for at least a couple days by now for you to do so.

                  And (most importantly) that you still do not have a single reference that actually supports any of the claims made in your initial post?

                    Well, the cartilaginous joints, hinged joints and ball and socket joints are already counted in the “more than 130” joints cited above.

                    "Immovable" and "fixed" joints are the same thing. So they are the only ones not included in the “more than 130.”

                    So... go ahead. We are still waiting. Provide us with the references in which they have been counted. We have been waiting for at least a couple days by now for you to do so.

                      Sure.

                      1- The number of bones change between infancy and adulthood.

                      The number of bones in an adult skeleton and an infant skeleton differ substantially. An infant skeleton is made up of some 300 bones while an average adult skeleton will have 206 bones. This means that nearly one-third of the bones in our human body will bond together during the period between infancy and adulthood.

                      source: http://www.3dscience.com/Resources/3d_Skeleton.php
                      2- Different adults have different numbers of bones:

                      Example one: Extra ribs.

                      Cervical rib: A supernumerary (extra) rib which arises from the seventh cervical vertebra. It is located above the normal first rib. A cervical rib is present in only about 1 in 200 (0.5%) of people. It may cause nerve and artery problems.

                      There are normally 12 pairs of ribs in all. Each pair of ribs is attached to the building blocks of the spine (the vertebrae) in the back. The 12 normal pairs of ribs consist of:
                      • True ribs: The first seven ribs attach to the sternum (the breast bone) in the front and are known as true (or sternal) ribs.
                      • False ribs: The lower five ribs do not directly connect to the sternum and are known as false ribs.
                      The presence of a cervical rib means the individual has 13 ribs: 1 cervical rib + 7 true ribs + 5 false ribs = 13 ribs.

                      Source: http://www.medterms.com/script/main/...rticlekey=2684
                      Example 2: Extra bones in the skull.

                      Wormian bones
                      (Ole Worm, 1588 - 1654, Danish anatomist), intrasutural bones seen on skull radiographs (Fig.1) (Fig.2), commonly associated with the lambdoid suture and occurring frequently in infancy. They are generally only considered pathologically significant when greater than 6 x 4 mm in size, greater than ten in number and arranged in a mosaic pattern. There are numerous pathological associations with these small bones but the commonest include osteogenesis imperfecta, cleidocranial dysplasia, pyknodysostosis, hypophosphatasia, hypothyroidism and acro-osteolysis. It is important to emphasize, however, that the majority of cases are simply normal variants.

                      Source: http://www.medcyclopaedia.com/librar...ian_bones.aspx
                      Example 3: Extra bones in the foot.

                      Example 4: Extra vertebrae.

                      A sixth lumbar vertebra

                      One of the reasons for the confusion is that some people, approximately 10% of adults, have a congenital anomaly in their lower back. One of the most common anomalies is the presence of a sixth lumbar vertebra. Having one extra lumbar vertebra provides no advantage or disadvantage to the individual and is rarely a cause of back problems, but it can create some confusion. For example:
                      • Radiologists commonly count down from the last rib when numbering the lumbar vertebral bodies.
                      • Surgeons on the other hand, count up from the sacrum when numbering the lumbar vertebrae.

                              the 3 claims that you are asking from me to provide is not yours:

                              that was raised by some one else in the source site (http://www.answering-islam.de/Main/R...360joints.htm), for your good time your prediction was spot on because of that online article:

                              1- A scientific reference (any reference) from prior to 1995 in which scientists claim that there are 340 joints in the human body.

                              then why are you asking the same question from me?

                              the source site provide you the answer for it as you are trying to prove it that there are no 360 joints!

                              WE are stable on the hadess which was narrated by beloved Prophet (PBUH) as JOINTS in the human body is 360. IF its not then that is one of the problem with the modern science!

                              Eventhough I am reasearching on the subject. I will come back to the subjected post again near future inshallah with online reference or Hardcopy/Manual references!

                                Re: Islam's claim about the 360 joints in the human body was proven to be true!

                                Have you actually read your source, ammacool [actually http://www.answering-islam.de/Main/R.../360joints.htm ]?[/url] It says:
                                "We searched in a medical school library, with the aid of the librarian on duty using a computer in attempting to find references, and could not find a source that mentioned the number of joints in the human body.


                                No evidence that prior to 1995 the medical literature taught that there are 340 joints in the human body.
                                No evidence that in 1995 a "scientific institute" proved that the internal ear consists of 10 joints.
                                No evidence that current medical literature teaches that the human body consists of 360 joints. "

                                Either you agree with this, in which case you agree that there is no scientific "miracle" regarding the number of joints in the human body and you wasted your time posting the claim, or you believe that there are 360 joints in the human body because the quran says so and you need no evidence for it. If- as seems to be the case- you believe that where there is a discrepancy between the quran and apparent reality the fault is in reality, you were wasting your time posting what you would regard as irrelevant evidence.
