How much does God say human lives are worth?

Leviticus 27:1-8 says very clearly how much humans are worth:

Males (20 – 60 years old) are worth 50 shekels.
Females are worth 30.

Males (5 – 20 years old) are worth 20 shekels.
Females are worth 10.

Males (< 5 years old) are worth 5 shekels.
Females are worth 3.

According to Google Currency Conversion, the equivalents are:

Males (20 – 60 years old) are worth $12.55.
Females are worth $7.53.

Males (5 – 20 years old) are worth $5.02.
Females are worth $2.51.

Males (< 5 years old) are worth $1.25.
Females are worth $0.75.

According to this data, women are worth anywhere between 50-60% of what men are worth. Additionally, the Qur’an agrees with the Bible’s worth of women.
