Renowned Nobel Prize winner, exceptional physicist, Albert Einstein once declared, “Science without religion is lame . Religion without science is blind.”
Our world holds logic and science with the highest regard. Today, we begin testing the validity and reliability of our hypothesis “Does God exist”. Last time, I spoke of a book, a book that claims to be irrefutable and now we will begin to examine and investigate it.
Modern science has widely agreed on the “Big Bang” phenomena. Astrophysicists and astronomers have researched the creation of the universe and have arrived at the conclusion that it is a product of two processes. The first, the imploding of the primary nebula followed by the “Big Bang” which formed the galaxies. Thereafter, the galaxies parted forming the constellations of stars, moons and the planets. If the variety is observed objectively a logical person would succumb to the notion that that all cannot be a byproduct of chance. In sync with this validated theorem is a verse in the book to which we speak, “Do not the unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together (as one unit of Creation), before We clove them asunder? ” (21:30). A book that was communicated by an illiterate man 1400 years ago in the mist of the Arabian Deserts at a time where neither the education or instruments were available to make this earth shattering discovery.
Scientists have also discovered that galaxies were formed from the celestial matter which was in the form of gaseous matter. A gaseous matter that resembled smoke more than gas. “Then He turned to the sky and it had been (as) smoke: He said to it and to the earth: “Come ye together, willingly or unwillingly.” They said, “we do come (together) in willing obedience (41:11). According to CERN: “For a few millionths of a second, shortly after the big bang, the universe was filled with an astonishingly hot, dense soup made of all kinds of particles moving at near light speed. This mixture was dominated by quarks – fundamental bits of matter – and by gluons, carriers of the strong force that normally “glue” quarks together into familiar protons and neutrons and other species. In those first evanescent moments of extreme temperature, however, quarks and gluons were bound only weakly, free to move on their own in what’s called a quark-gluon plasma.”
Plasma is ionized gaseous particles, which are atoms that have lost some or all of their electrons. CERN goes on to say that the first full atom (electrons and all) was not formed until 380,000 years after the big bang, but that nuclei were formed within the first minutes. This leaves everything as a plasma. Smoke does not have to give color or be from combustion, ie. the radiation given off of a jet engine that bends the light at the point forming a colorless like smoke or the “smoke” given off from frozen CO2. Helium and hydrogen were the first elements that we know that were formed, which forms a plasma state. These plasma states are normal in everyday life, such as the Aurora borealis. The plasma is ionized gaseous particles, which does look like smoke (often videos are sped up). Personally, the plasma fits this description to the “smouldering” and “smoke” aspects.
Is it not a smoldering smoke?
It is chronicled that humanity once held the the belief that the earth is flat for many centuries humans feared to fall off the edge. In 1577 that was proven incorrect by Sir Francis Drake through his sail around the world. Now, let’s look into the book, it narrates “seest thou not that Allah merges Night into Day and he merges Day into Night” (31:29). In this context merging is used to describe the slow change of day into night and so on. This slow change is what allows the experience of day break, evening and day fall and the many other times of day which would only be possible if the world is around. If it were flat we would only experience two timings night and day. Another verse: “He created the Heavens and the earth in true (proportions): He makes the night overlap the day and the day overlap the night” signifying that day and night are not two sides of a coin, alas there are times of the day that are neither one completely. Again, if the world was flat we would only experience the two extremes.
Through time it has been discovered that the earth is not in fact a true sphere, but an oblate spheroid, much like an ostrich egg which is what this book compares the earth to in this next verse. “And the earth, moreover, hath He extended (to a wide expanse) (79:30). A literal translation of this book is somewhat impossible since it is written in an ancient expansive language and English with its limited vocabulary does not do it justice. The book uses the word “dahaha” which by definition is an ostrich egg. This signifies that this man spoke of such specific, articulate science that he could of no means of his own have discovered in his lifetime. This book has weathered years, years that have only added to its validity and reliability.
