The word Human (Ansn - انسن) appears in definite form (الانسن and للانسن) in the Holy Quran sixty four times and one time in indefinite form. Chapter 76 is named "The Human" (in definite form). The interesting thing is that the word Human (Ansn- انسن) appears in definite form exactly 46 times before that chapter. 46 is the number of chromosomes humans have. This number was discovered by advanced techniques in the year 1955. The chromosmes contain the genetic material needed for the development and functioning of the human body. It must be pointed out that different species have different number of chromosomes. Elephants have 56 chromosomes while the Hoopoe bird has as many as 126 chromosomes.

Note also that the total number of occurences of this word in definite form is 64 which is the reversed form of the number 46.

The position of the only occurrence in indefinite form is also special. Consider first the facts that the number 23 (human haploid chromosme numer) is the 9th prime number in universe and that the number 46 (human diploid chromosome number) is not a prime number, yet up to it there are exactly 14 prime numbers. Thus, and said in technical terms:

9 prime numbers are less or equal to 23, and

14 prime numbers are less or equal to 46

The only occurrence of the word Human (انسن) in indefinite form comes in the 10th position from Qurans beginning. This means that there are exactly 9 occurrences of the word Human (الإنسن) in definite form up to it. Number 9 is special since number 23 is the 9th prime number and adding 14 to 9 gives human haploid chromosome number (23).

At the same time we find that 55 occurrences of this word in definite form come after the only occurrence in indefinite form. Note that 55 - 9 gives human chromosome number (46) and that 55 + 14 gives 69 which is a multiple of 23, it equals 23 x 3.
