Quran

In religio-mythology, Quran [TR:19], or “Koran”, is the holy book of Islam, purported to have been written by Muhammad, as dictated to him by an angel named Gabriel (Jibril), one of the mediators of the god Allah.

See main: Judeo-Christian Islamic pantheon
The Quran, in religio-mythology terms, is a modified rescript of the Old Testament and New Testament, both of which themselves being monotheistic rescripts of the Egyptian Book of the Dead, via the invention of new supreme god, named Allah, and a new prophet named Muhammad, who claims lineage from Abraham (Ra).

Magic Mary?
In 2019, Youtuber Apostate Prophet, in his “Absolute Proof: the Quran is Wrong” (Ѻ), discusses the confused account of Mary wherein she is described as “mother of Jesus” and “sister of Aaron” (Quran 19:27-28) AND also “daughter of Imran” (Quran 66:12); the concluding point being that the Quranic writers, supposedly, merged the Mariam (sister of Moses), of the Old Testament, with the Mary (mother of Jesus), of the New Testament, into one character, loosely as follows:

This gist of this confusion is explained by pointing out that the original "Osiris / Isis / Horus" Egyptian motif, from the Heliopolis creation myth, was repeated in different guises in both the Old Testament, namely in the form: "Moses / Miriam / Aaron", and in the New Testament, namely in the form: "Lazarus / Mary / Jesus"; hence it could have been likely that when the Quran was penned (c.650AD), in an effort to make a new religion out of the Egyptian-Judeo-Christian pantheon, the Old Testament and New Testament stories of Miriam and Mary, respectively, were merged (Ѻ); the following account connects some of these pieces:

“In consideration of what we know about Osiris, Horus and Isis, it is reasonable to find in Moses, Aaron and Miriam their traces, especially since Osiris is equated with Dionysus, who in turn has been identified with Moses. We have seen also that Aaron and Horus possess intriguing commonalities, and it is noteworthy that Isis was styled with the Egyptian epithet "Meri," meaning "beloved," while Miryam is Semitic for "Maria" and "Mary".”
Dorothy Murdock (2014), Did Moses Exist? (pg. 317)

One correction here, in the Murdock quote, to note, is that Mary derives from "sea", as in Maritime, in the sense of Isis being the goddess form if the star Sirius, which was known as the "star of the sea" or the guiding star for sailors. Whatever the case, it is known that both Moses and Jesus are "Osiris rescripts", hence it could be likely that Quranic writers confused the issue, in their attempt to summarize and absorb the Old and New Testaments into their new Allah-based religion format. The speaker goes onto argue that this “Magic Mary” contradiction combined with Quran 4:82, which says that if one contradiction is found in the Quran, then it is proof that whole Quran is invalid, since it is not, therefore, the perfect word of Allah.

Revisions
In c.715, a Quran was penned, wherein it was said that religious fighters will get "72 grapes" in the afterlife; sometime thereafter, this was changed to “72 virgins”. (Ѻ)

“And [for] their saying, "Indeed, we have killed the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, the messenger of Allah." And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them. And indeed, those who differ over it are in doubt about it.

Jefferson Quran
In 2016, an anon ex-Baptist Christian atheist, after spending a year reading four parallel versions of the Quran, began making a WordPress based so-called “Jefferson Quran”, therein stepping through each Surah and cutting out all of the gobbledygook.
