A fish with markings that resembled a Koranic text has disappeared from the Kenyan Fisheries Department in Mombasa. The tuna fish, which had provoked intense interest from Muslims, was apparently stolen by people posing as National Museum officials.
The theft was discovered when the real official from the museum, based at Fort Jesus in Mombasa, came to get the fish. The fish was being studied to find out if the Arabic inscription “You are the best provider” was natural or a hoax.
Sceptics say the writing was the work of someone who caught the fish and then threw it back into the sea. But others say this would be impossible, and local imams are said to have been talking in the mosques about the fish.
Over the weekend, people thronged to the Takaungu Fish Shop in Mombasa’s old town after the owner noticed the tuna fish’s remarkable markings. An official at the fisheries department in Mombasa said someone had even offered to pay as much as $150. Under normal circumstances the fish would fetch not more than $6. [source]
Behold! God has chosen to manifest his divine words on the side of a tuna fish! Put your Qurans down for this is surely greater proof of His existence! Imams, forget about preaching from the Holy Book about peace and understanding, about morals and living a good life, about fighting poverty through charity; focus on the fish!
Silly humans; tricks are for kids.
