A rationale approach

did everything come from?
What is the proof?
There is a popular
theory referred to as the 'Big Bang' theory. It tries to explain
the existence of the universe in an evolutionary manner having
an initial beginning with an immense explosion of some gases
or solid mass. Some say there first was a void or a 'nothingness',
or perhaps, some gases which exploded then from this everything
in the universe simply began to evolve to the stage that we
see now. There has never really been any solid evidence for
this idea of 'something out of nothing' concept. Nor for that
matter, the evolutionary theory itself.
We would like to explore the
idea of creation from a purely logical standpoint using simple
terminology without religious hype, emotional pre-convictions
What if someone called a 'scientist' tells you his 'theory'
of how cars are made is like this:
salvage yard on the south side of town blows up and all the
metal pieces fly into the air and fall back down in one place
forming a brand new Chevrolet Caprice automobile . . with no
left over parts . . and the motor is running . .
Or what if his theory for how a chair is made is:
explosion occurs in a forest and the trees go flying into the
air and then suddenly they combine with some flying cloth to
make a beautiful chair . . . and then it lands in a furniture
showroom complete with matching table and lamp . . .
He further explains that:
earthquake in California's 'Silicon Valley' causes the computer
chips and circuit boards and other various parts to fall out
of their boxes and off of their shelves and just come in place
together as they are rolling around on the floor and form the
most advanced technical computers existing on the earth? . .
Or what of his 'Medicine Theory'? He now claims that:
|A gas leak
in a pharmacy warehouse causes a terrific explosion. All the
different chemicals and substances just smash into each other
in exactly the correct amounts to produce a miracle drug which
cures everything form cancer to heart and liver disease, old
age and warts? . . .
Wait . . . there's more to this one:
is all in one formula, packaged in the bottles with labels and
ready to sell with no mess left on the floor? . . .
Now after all this exploding and excitement this 'scientist'
tells you of a great place to relax and have something to eat.
It is his favourite place and he calls it: "Burger Blast"!
just go in and sit down and suddenly a 'blast' from the kitchen
occurs and immediately a burger lands right in front of you
with all the trimmings.. just the way you like it complete with
fries, a drink and even your favourite dessert? . . .
AND . . .
one works at "Burger Blast", it just runs itself, automatically
cleaning itself and as you leave it scans your billfold for
a valid credit card and charges your bank account for what you
have eaten? . . .
Now the question is: "Are you really going to accept any of
this as 'fact'?
Of course not!
We wouldn't believe
a new car is made from flying junk; chairs don't fall down
from exploding trees; earthquakes do not produce computers
and blasting burgers don't rain down on us from above.
Question: So how come we don't challenge a theory of something
coming from nothing and then colliding in the cosmos to make
the universe? Is it because of its tremendous magnitude that
we have so little comprehension about it, that we are willing
to accept any theory from a few telescope 'peeping Toms' to
tell us that it came from 'nothingness'? Or just some gases
colliding and then. . . 'Poof'!? Instant Universe? How?
Let us now come to our main
We can turn our attention
to the earth and the heavens and make observations on our
own without a 'genius' scientist telling us what we are seeing.
And then the idea that nothing is sustaining the heavens and
the earth! - 'It just runs itself'? How?
Think about the stars, the
sun, the moon and the countless solar systems and galaxies
in the universe.
Who or What created them in the first place?
They continue to function and move with the utmost precision
Who does this? Who keeps them gliding along on their courses
and orbits preordained for them?
about Origin Of the Earth & Geology
If you combine all this and
you combine all those statements that are being made in the
Qur'an in terms that relate to the earth and the formation
of the earth and science in general, you can basically say
that statements made there in many ways are true.
They can now be confirmed by scientific methods, and in a
way you can say that the Qur'an is a simple science text
book for the simple man, and that many of the statements
made in there at that time could not be proven but that modern
scientific methods are now in a position to prove what Muhammad
(saws) said 1400 years ago." (statement made
by: Professor Alfred Kroner after being presented with
many scientific facts in the Qur'an)
confirms in His Book that:
is no less than reminder to (all), the worlds. And you shall
certainly know the truth of it all after a while. (Qur'an
