Miracle: The Quran explains fetal development

Among the favorite arguments Muslims present for the divinity and truth of the Quran is its “accurate” description of fetal development.  Muslims sometimes claim that a mere desert merchant could not have known such miraculous details in his time.

On closer examination, however, we find that God’s description of fetal development leaves much to be desired.  The relevant verses are 23:12 through 23:14.  For those who do not have a Quran handy, I have included an abridged visual.  Not what one one would call “miraculous”.
