Maurice Bucaille (French pronunciation: [moris bykaj]; 19 July 1920 in Pont-l'Évêque, Calvados – 17 February 1998), was a French Muslim, medical doctor and author. He was the senior surgeon in French study on mummy of Pharaoh. In 1973, Bucaille was appointed family physician to King Faisal of Saudi Arabia. His patients included the members of the family of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat. He is famous for his book The Bible, The Quran and Science.
Bucailleism is a movement to relate modern science with religion, and especially that of Islam. Since the publishing of The Bible, the Quran and Science, Bucaillists have promoted the idea that the Quran is of divine origin, arguing that it contains scientifically correct facts.
According to The Wall Street Journal, Bucailleism is "in some ways the Muslim counterpart to Christian creationism" and although "while creationism rejects much of modern science, Bucailleism embraces it."
